Chairman's statement

 

In the first six months of 2021, the Group's revenue increased by 9.0% to £130.7 million (H1 2020: £119.9 million). This was mainly as a result of the Group's core business in mobile phone prepaid airtime reload and bill payment business activities in Malaysia through the Group's banking channels (i.e. mobile banking and internet banking) with 10 banks and third parties' e-wallets. Notwithstanding the growth in revenue in the period under review, the Group recorded a profit after tax of £1.01 million in the first six months of 2021, which is within the region of the profit after tax achieved in the first six months of 2020 of £1.07 million as a result of higher cost of sales and operating expenses.

 

The Group's other businesses (i.e., the international remittance services and e-money business in Malaysia and e-payment solutions activities in the Philippines and Brunei) remained small in the first six months of 2021.

 

During the period under review, the Group received a license from MasterCard Asia/Pacific Pte Ltd ("MasterCard") for the Group to issue MasterCard prepaid cards in Malaysia which will complement the Group's existing e-wallet and will be part of the Group's end-to-end payment ecosystem. In addition, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication ("SWIFT") has permitted the Group to join its network.  With the SWIFT's platform, the Group is expected to be able to expand its business to larger amount of money transfers for business to business (B2B) in addition to the Group's existing arrangement with MoneyGram which caters mainly for the smaller amount of money transfers, typically for consumer to consumer (C2C).  The arrangements with MasterCard and the SWIFT are expected to commence in the 4th quarter of this year and 1st half of 2022, respectively after receiving relevant approvals from the Central Bank of Malaysia. 

 

As at 30 June 2021, the Group had cash and cash equivalents (including fixed deposits) of £4.52 million (30 June 2020: cash and cash equivalents of £5.92 million). The reduction in cash compared to the prior year is primarily as a result of reduction of bank borrowings to £2.06 million (30 June 2020: £3.47 million). 

 

Current trading and outlook

 

The Group's financial performance has not been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in view of the nature of the Group's major business activities being focused on e-payments. The Group remains positive on its business outlook for the remainder of 2021, particularly in light of the Group's mobile phone prepaid airtime reload and bill payment business in Malaysia. This is notwithstanding the Group's international remittance services and e-money business in Malaysia and business activities in the Philippines and Brunei being expected to remain insignificant in 2021. 

 

Recently the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary in the UK, M-One Tech Limited, submitted an application to the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA"), the financial regulatory body in the UK, for authorisation as an electronic money institution to provide e-money services in the UK. This includes the use of e-wallets for payments of purchases or transfer funds to/from other parties within the e-money ecosystem, both of which are areas in which the Group already has the operational experience in Malaysia.  The decision from the FCA in respect of the submitted application is expected to be received in the 2nd quarter of 2022 and, if approved, the Group will be able to expand its business activities into the UK. There can be no guarantee as to either the decision or timing of the decision by the FCA. 

 

For future growth, the Group will continue to enhance its product offering and pursue new business opportunities. While the Group does not expect any significant revenue contribution from the developments with MasterCard and the SWIFT in 2021, they are expected to contribute positively to the Group's overall growth prospects in the long term.

Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and from the translation at year/period-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the statement of comprehensive income.

6.

Taxation

 

 

Taxation on the income statement for the financial period comprises current and deferred tax. Current tax is the expected amount of taxes payable in respect of the taxable profit for the financial period and is measured using the tax rates that have been enacted at the Statement of Financial Position date.

 

Deferred tax is recognised on the liability method for all temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the Statement of Financial Position and its tax base at the Statement of Financial Position date. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits can be utilised. Deferred tax is not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or negative goodwill or from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction which is not a business combination and at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting profit nor taxable profit.

            

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the Statement of Financial Position date. The carrying amount of a deferred tax asset is reviewed at each Statement of Financial Position date and is reduced to the extent that it becomes probable that sufficient future taxable profit will be available.

 

Deferred tax is recognised in the income statement, except when it arises from a transaction which is recognised directly in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or credited directly in equity, or when it arises from a business combination that is an acquisition, in which case the deferred tax is included in the resulting goodwill or negative goodwill.

 

7.

Earnings per share

 

 

The basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the profit in the six month period ended 30 June 2021 of £1,013,868 (30 June 2020: profit of £1,066,435 and year ended 31 December 2020: profit of £1,607,100) attributable to owners of the parent by the number of ordinary shares outstanding at 30 June 2021 of 106,298,780 (30 June 2020: 106,298,780 and 31 December 2020: 106,298,780).

 

The diluted earnings per share for the six month period ended 30 June 2021 is calculated using the number of shares adjusted to assume the conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares of 114,898,780 (ie, on 5 December 2014, the Company granted share options of 10,600,000 shares at 2.5p to directors and certain employees of the Group. Share options of 2,000,000 shares had lapsed due to resignation of employees and no option has been exercised).

Contingent liabilities

 

 

In the period under review, corporate guarantees of RM21.1 million (£3.68 million) (H1 2020: RM21.1 million (£4.01 million) were given to a licensed bank by the Company for credit facilities granted to a subsidiary company.

 

 

10.

Significant accounting policies

 

 

 

The interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared applying the same accounting policies that were applied in the preparation of the Company's published consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020 except for the adoption of new and amended reporting standards, which are effective for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2021. Various amendments to standards and interpretations of standards are effective for periods commencing on or after 1 January 2021 as detailed in the 2020 Annual Report, none of which have any impact on reported results.

 

         
 

 

 

 

 

Amortisation of intangible assets

 

Software is amortised over its estimated useful life. Management estimated the useful life of this asset to be within 10 years. Changes in the expected level of usage and technological development could impact the economic useful life therefore future amortisation could be revised.

 

The Group determines whether goodwill is impaired at least on an annual basis. This requires an estimation of the value-in-use of the cash generating units ("CGU") to which goodwill is allocated. Estimating a value-in-use amount requires management to make an estimation of the expected future cash flows from the CGU and also to choose a suitable discount rate in order to calculate the present value of those cash flows.

 

The research and development costs are amortised on a straight-line basis over the life span of the developed assets. Management estimated the useful life of these assets to be within 5 years. Changes in the technological developments could impact the economic useful life and the residual values of these assets, therefore future amortisation charges could be revised.

 

 

Impairment of goodwill on consolidation

 

The Group's cash flow projections include estimates of sales. However, if the projected sales do not materialise there is a risk that the value of goodwill would be impaired.

 

The Directors have carried out a detailed impairment review in respect of goodwill. The Group assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired, by considering cash flows forecasts. The cash flow projections are based on the assumption that the Group can realise projected sales. A prudent approach has been applied with no residual value being factored. At the period end, based on these assumptions there was no indication of impairment of the value of goodwill or of development costs.

 

 

Research and development costs

 

All research costs are recognised in the income statement as incurred.

 

Expenditure incurred on projects to develop new products is capitalised and deferred only when the Group can demonstrate the technical feasibility of completing the intangible asset so that it will be available for use or sale, its intention to complete and its ability to use or sell the asset, how the asset will generate future economic benefits, the availability of resources to complete the project and the ability to measure reliably the expenditure during the development. Product development expenditures which do not meet these criteria are expensed when incurred.

 

Development costs, considered to have finite useful lives, are stated at cost less any impairment losses and are amortised through other operating expenses in the income statement using the straight-line basis over the commercial lives of the underlying products not exceeding 5 years. Impairment is assessed whenever there is an indication of impairment and the amortisation period and method are also reviewed at least at each Statement of Financial Position date.
