by Dimple Dimple No Comments

Business remains sturdy with increasing demands

Key Highlights
• Q3FY2021 revenue increased by 42.2% YoY.
• PBT soared by 431% YoY.
• PATAMI reported at RM2.0 million.
• Basic EPS improved to 0.40 sen.
• Healthy financial position with an improved net assets per share of 14.35 sen and cash and cash equivalent of RM26.4 million.

Kuala Lumpur, 8 February 2021 – Censof Holdings Berhad (“Censof” or the “Group”), a technology holdings company specialising in financial management software solutions, announced its third quarter ended 31 December 2020 (“Q3FY2021”) financial results today, where revenue increased to RM23.7 million, from RM16.7 million in the corresponding quarter last year. The profit before tax (“PBT”) rose from RM0.6 million to RM3.0 million while the profit after tax and minority interests (“PATAMI”) was at RM2.0 million as compared to a loss of RM83,000 in the preceding year. Correspondingly, the basic earnings per share improved to 0.40 sen from a loss of 0.02 sen.

The revenue growth primarily came from higher project deliverables under the Financial Management Solutions – Government segment and contributions from the Financial Management Solutions – Commercial & Small Medium Enterprises (“SME”) segment, arising from the higher demand for Asian Business Software Solutions Pte Ltd’s (“ABSS”) products and revenue from the Netsense Group, which was acquired in January 2020.

On top of the higher revenue, finance cost savings of approximately RM0.7 million per quarter upon the full settlement of share margin loan from MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Berhad and a term loan from Kenanga Investment Bank Berhad in second quarter of current financial year end, and a gain on fair value adjustment of approximately RM0.5 million on the short-term investment of Dagang NeXchange Berhad played a role in boosting Censof’s Q3FY2021 earnings.

For the cumulative period ended 31 December 2020, Censof registered a 21.3% increase in revenue to RM55.0 million. Cumulative PBT was RM16.2 million, in contrast to RM3.0 million for the same period in the preceding year. The substantial increase was mainly due to a gain on fair value adjustment and a gain on disposal of quoted investment which amounted to approximately RM9.4 million and RM2.1 million respectively.

The Group’s financial position remained healthy with an improvement of its net assets per share to 14.35 sen as at 31 December 2020, from 11.51 sen as at 31 March 2020. The Group’s cash and cash equivalent also saw a surge to RM26.4 million from RM7.7 million.

“Amidst the challenging economic conditions that we are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to strive to deliver the highest standard of products to serve our customers, both the government sector and the SME market. Nonetheless, the pandemic has indeed expedited the migration of businesses towards paperless transaction and digitalisation. As such, we view this as an opportunity to push the adoption of technology transformation, leveraging on the demands for technology solutions in Malaysia and Singapore. With this said, we recently entered into a share sale and purchase agreement to acquire an additional 30.87% equity interest in ABSS, which will ultimately increase our stake from 58.2% to 89.07%, upon the completion of the proposed acquisition. This is a testament of our efforts as we remain committed to streamline and focus on growing our core businesses which have since produced positive results for the Group,” said Ameer Shaik Mydin, group managing director of Censof.

Kuala Lumpur, 25 January 2021 – Censof Holdings Berhad (“Censof” or the “Group”), a technology holdings company specialising in financial management software solutions, today announced that it has entered into a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement (“SSPA”) to acquire a collective 162,305 ordinary shares, representing approximately a 30.87% equity interest in Asian Business Software Solutions Pte Ltd (“ABSS”) from the latter’s minority shareholders.

The RM14.1 million purchase consideration was arrived at a “willing-buyer, willing-seller” basis after taking into consideration, amongst others, the historical financial performance of ABSS, the value of the proprietary software portfolio and the prospects of ABSS moving forward. The purchase consideration shall be satisfied via proceeds from a proposed private placement exercise of up to 20.0% of its total number of issued shares to third party investors to be identified later, under the general mandate pursuant to Sections 75 and 76 of the Companies Act 2016.

Based on an indicative issue price of RM0.25 per placement share, the proposed private placement can raise gross proceeds of up to RM25.1 million. In addition, the proceeds have also been earmarked to fund the working capital requirements and the estimated expenses associated with the placement exercise.

Based on the SSPA, the minority shareholders, namely Paul Alistair Jennings, Fox Equities Pty Ltd and Lum Chong Eu will dispose 117,470, 38,220 and 6,615 ordinary shares, representing 22.34%, 7.27% and 1.26% interest in ABSS respectively.

ABSS is a developer and a leading supplier of ABSS-branded financial management and accounting software that supports the Asian small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”), and cloud-based accounting product, namely Financio, catering for start-ups and entry level SMEs. Censof initially acquired ABSS back in 2015 and is presently holding a 58.20% equity interest in ABSS. Following this transaction, the stake will increase to 89.07%, while the remaining minority interest is held by Paul Alistair Jennings (5.90%) and Rhys Brown (5.03%).

“ABSS is well-established and widely known as the market leader amongst the SMEs in Singapore and Hong Kong. The company has delivered continuous strong growth and contributed to Censof’s earnings since our initial acquisition in July 2015. We are pleased to have reached this agreement (with the minority shareholders) that essentially increased our equity interest in ABSS to over 89%.”

“The acquisition is in line with our strategies and is a compelling opportunity for us to expand our business in the SME segment, as well as strengthening our footprint in the Asian market. We look forward to benefit from the upside and robust prospects that ABSS holds and are confident that this strategic investment will provide Censof with sustainable profitable growth and concurrently accelerate our position in the SME market within the Asian region in the near term. With this said, the proposed private placement exercise is the most cost-effective manner for us to raise funds without incurring interest expenses as compared to bank borrowings,” said Ameer Shaik Mydin, group managing director of Censof.

“ABSS is delighted to recognise increased investment by the Censof group. Following a strong financial performance the past 12 months, this investment will ensure ABSS is well placed to deliver future growth and accelerate SME Accounting automation across South East Asia,” said Rhys Brown, chief executive director of ABSS.
