Review of performance of the Group

Review of performance of the group for the financial period ended 31 March 2022 as compared to corresponding financial period ended 31 March 2021

Group Revenue

The group recorded consolidated revenue of S$5.344 million for the quarter ended 31 March 2022 ("Q1 2022"), a 0.3% marginal decrease against the revenue recorded in the corresponding quarter ended 31 March 2021 ("Q1 2021"). The decline in group revenue for Q1 2022 is attributable to lower revenue recorded by GlobeOSS.

GlobeOSS recorded revenue of S$1.674 million in Q1 2022, a decrease of 7.6% from the S$1.811 million recorded in Q1 2021. This decline in revenue was due to lower revenue from system sale contracts.

In contrast, Unifiedcomms posted revenue of S$3.67 million in Q1 2022, an increase of 3.4% from the S$3.55 million recorded in Q1 2021. This improvement in revenue was mainly driven by higher revenue from managed service contracts.

The group's sales mix in Q1 2022 showed an increase in the proportionate contribution of revenue of a recurring nature, with revenue from managed service contracts representing 83.9% of the group's total revenue in Q1 2022 as compared to 74.5% in Q1 2021. The higher contribution of managed service contracts to the group's sales mix in Q1 2022 was mainly attributable to a 36.9% drop in system sale contract revenues of both GlobeOSS and Unifiedcomms from S$1.367 million in Q1 2021 to S$0.862 million in Q1 2022.

Group Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margins

With lower revenue, the group recorded gross profit of S$2.499 million in Q1 2022, a decrease of 8.2% from the S$2.723 million achieved in Q1 2021. In addition, gross profit margin declined from 50.8% in Q1 2021 to 46.8% in Q1 2022.

The decrease in group gross profit margin is mainly attributable to the lower gross profit margin recorded on the group's managed service contract revenues, which decreased to 42.8% in Q1 2022 from 45.3% in Q1 2021. This decrease in gross profit margin was mainly due to higher third-party costs on certain managed service contracts.

The group recorded gross profit margin on its system sales contract revenues of 67.2% in Q1 2022, slightly higher against the 66.7% recorded in Q1 2021.

Interest Income

The group recorded slightly lower interest income of S$0.033 million in Q1 2022 as compared to S$0.035 million earned in Q1 2021.

Other gains and Other item of Expense

The group recorded net total expenses of S$1.891 million in Q1 2022, 5% higher than the S$1.801 million incurred in Q1 2021. This is mainly attributable to the absence in Q1 2022 of a net foreign exchange gain such as that recorded in Q1 2021 arising from the favourable exchange rate movement of USD against SGD, the group's reporting currency.

Net Profit/(Loss) and EBITDA

The group recorded net profit of S$0.532 million and EBITDA of S$0.924 million in Q1 2022, as compared to S$0.783 million in net profit and S$1.286 million in EBITDA in Q1 2021. The lower net profit and EBITDA recorded in Q1 2022 was due to the flow-down effects of the lower gross profit margin and higher net total expenses recorded in Q1 2022.

Review of the group's financial position as at 31 March 2022 as compared to the group's financial position as at 31 December 2021

Non-cash current assets of the group decreased from S$13.405 million as at 31 December 2021 to S$13.242 million as at 31 March 2022, a 1.2% marginal decrease.

Total non-current assets of the group decreased from S$44.141 million as at 31 December 2021 to S$42.508 million as at 31 March 2022. This 3.7% decrease in non-current assets is attributable to the decrease in venture investments of the group, following the disposal of one venture investment in the reporting period.

Total liabilities of the group decreased from S$8.65 million as at 31 December 2021 to S$6.759 million as at 31 March 2022. This 21.8% decrease in total liabilities is attributable to the decrease in trade and other payables following repayments made in the reporting period.

Review of the group's cash flow for the quarter ended 31 March 2022 as compared to the corresponding quarter ended 31 March 2021

The group's net cash flow used in operations for Q1 2022 was S$0.609 million, in contrast with the net cash flow from operations of S$0.626 million for Q1 2021. This was mainly due to the unfavourable working capital movement of S$1.398 million for Q1 2022, as compared to S$0.557 million for Q1 2021. This higher cash outflow from operations is mainly attributable to the higher repayment of trade and other payables in the current quarter.

The group's net cash flow from investing activities for Q1 2022 was S$1.426 million, in contrast with the net cash flow used in investing activities of S$0.121 million in Q1 2021. This was primarily due to proceeds received from the disposal of a venture investment in the current quarter.

The group's net cash flow used in financing activities for Q1 2022 was S$0.466 million, flat against what was recorded in Q1 2021.

Commentary

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect many countries in our group's regions of focus, although many territories have relaxed movement and travel restrictions. The uncertainty of economic recovery from the shock caused by COVID-19 and the prospect of another economic slowdown or a slow recovery, especially in the group's regions of focus, have weighed on the minds of management and the directors of the group when considering the outlook for the remainder of the financial year.

The impact of COVID-19 on Unifiedcomms and GlobeOSS operations in the current financial year has fortunately remained minimal. This is because these businesses operate primarily in the field of telecommunications, an essential service in any economy today. In addition, Unifiedcomms and GlobeOSS businesses have been made capable of fullyfunctioning under a work-from-home mode of operation, well ahead of movement control restrictions or lockdown orders being enforced. The group's primary customers in the Unifiedcomms and GlobeOSS businesses are telecommunications network operators and service providers that have continued to operate normally throughout COVID-19 restrictions, albeit remotely and through digital engagement, rather than face-to-face interaction. Contracts in-hand continue to be progressed and management of the group are hopeful that new projects and initiatives requiring our products and services, will continue to be pursued by customers. The possibility remains however, that larger system sale contracts that have yet to be committed in the current financial year, may be further deferred, or even abandoned entirely if macroeconomic and industry conditions worsen or do 15 not improve significantly enough. Some managed service contracts of the group which have been impacted by government restrictions or directives arising from COVID-19 policy measures, may meanwhile continue to show weaker performance.

At Captii Ventures, the group's venture investment business, the climate for business development and funding has improved but continues to be challenging for certain start-ups in industries or business areas that remain significantly affected by COVID-19. On a more positive note, the group had in the current quarter successfully materialised certain unrealised fair value gains recorded in prior years by disposing one venture investment. As a result of this exit, disposal proceeds of S$1.5m were received and are reflected in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the current quarter. Moreover, a number of other investees in the portfolio contined to grow strongly through the period under review, and contributed to the improvement in value of the overall venture investment portfolio.

Against this negative but improving macroeconomic backdrop for the future, the group remains optimistic and will continue to work closely with customers and investees, to minimise the negative impact of COVID-19 on the group financial performance. Management of the group continues to take an active and measured approach to managing risks to protect the group's people and assets, and will sustain these efforts until the effects of the lingering pandemic abate.
