Asiaray Announces 2019 Annual Results

By | EN, PR

Achieves Milestone in Different Aspects

Marks its First Footstep Outside of Greater China

Further Strengthen its Extensive Business Network

HONG KONG, March 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Asiaray Media Group Limited ("Asiaray" or the "Group"; stock code: 1993), a leading out-of-home ("OOH") media company with a strategic focus on airport and metro line advertising, has announced its annual results for the financial year ended 31 December 2019.

With the Group’s solid business foundation and well developed network, it managed to achieve stable revenue at HKD1,878.4 million (2018: HKD1,929.0 million) even in the face of challenging conditions. Excluding RMB depreciation, the Group’s revenue managed to record modest growth. Due to the fluctuate business environment in the second half of 2019, the Group recorded a gross profit of HKD397.8 million, with gross profit margin at 21.2%. Furthermore, EBITDA (Earnings before earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) increased 312.6% to HKD808.7 million. The combined revenue, which provides a more concise representation of total business scale by including consolidated revenue and revenue of all associated companies amounted to HKD2.630 billion (2018: HKD2.799 billion). However, as several newly secured project were still at a ramp-up phase during the year, and the Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standard 16 Leases became effective as of 1 January 2019, the combination of factors led to an initial heavy impact of the Group’s performance as reflected by a loss of the Company of HKD108.7 million.

Mr Vincent Lam, Chairman and Executive Director of Asiaray, said, "Over the past year, global economic conditions have remained erratic owing to the US-China trade war and many uncertainties. Nonetheless, Asiaray was able to maintain a stable business performance leveraging its effective business strategies and the strong business foundation. The Group has achieved different milestones during the year, particularly extended our reach to Singapore, marking the first business foothold outside the Greater China Region. In Hong Kong, we have extended our business footprint to bus business by granting the media resources of KMB and LWB. We have also introduced Ant Financial as our strategic shareholder, and officially launched the pioneer ‘online and offline ("O&O") new media’ strategy, which aims to strengthen our existing business by collaboration with O&O strategy. Together with a series of business projects in 2019, the Group is set to substantially improve its scope of business and further enrich its well-established media resources network."

Business Review

In 2019, the metro lines and billboards business segment remained to be the key revenue contributor. However, affected by the weakened operation environment, and a decline in revenue experienced by its business partner, MTR Corporation Limited and a shortfall faced by the Shenzhen Metro Lines due to the negative impact brought by the Sino-US trade war, segment revenue decreased to HKD919.3 million (2018: HKD974.9 million), while segment gross profit recorded to HKD136.7 million (2018: HKD184.3 million) and gross profit margin at 14.9%. Nevertheless, the Group secured numbers of new media resource, including the Beijing Metro Line 14, the Wenzhou Metro Line S1 and the Hangzhou Metro Line 5 during the first half year, which have broadened the business presence in the BeijingTianjinHebei region and the Yangtze River Delta respectively. In the second half year, the Group obtained an advertising concession right with Land Transport Authority ("LTA") of Singapore for the Thomson-East Coast Line, which was the Group’s first business foothold outside of Greater China. The Group also secured several new billboard resources, including some LED resources and building wraps that are new mediums for the Group. On top of it, Asiaray was also awarded two billboards and marked its first operation in Macau, including the Emperor Nam Van Centre and Hotel Inn, further enriched its well established Greater Bay Area portfolio.

The airport media advertising business recorded a stable growth in revenue, which has increased 1.6% to HKD739.3 million during the year. This was mainly attributable to the ongoing ramp-up of newly secured projects, as well as the improved performance of existing projects, including Yunnan airports, Zhuhai Airport and Urumqi Airport. Gross profit margin of 29.4% was recorded, with gross profit amounting to HKD217.3 million. The Group has strategically possessed media resources covering the entire Hainan Island. With the benefit of the offshore duty-free policy in Hainan Island, Haikou Meilan Airport is one of the very few locations in the Island operated under a provincial state-owned enterprise with permit for duty-free goods operation. In addition to Haikou Airport, the Group also operates the advertising media in the rest of the airports in the Island namely BoAo Airport and Sanya Phoenix International Airport. During the year, the Group has also expanded its airport media advertising network by once again securing the exclusive concession rights to continue operating media resources in the Kunming Airport. These latest concession rights will further strengthen the Group’s business presence in South and Western China, and reinforce its leading industry position in Greater China.

Further to the win of media resources of High Speed Rail (Hong Kong Section) and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (Zhuhai-Macao Port), the Group has secured another new advertising medium in 2019, via exclusive concession rights with The Kowloon Motor Bus Company (1933) Limited ("KMB") and Long Win Bus Company Limited ("LWB") during the year. The exposure and impact of bus advertising can be highly significant and effectual given its easy reach to a huge swathe of the population. By leveraging Asiaray’s unique ‘Space Management’ approach, and ample experience in public transport advertising, the cooperative ties with KMB and LWB is believed to maximize all parties’ strengths and enable opportunities to be seized in the public transport advertising industry.

In addition, the Group continued to deploy both O&O strategies to maximize the impact of its DOOH business, hence to provide a seamless advertisement experience. In 2019, the Group’s integrated O&O strategy and existing programmatic DOOH platform were among the factors that attracted Ant Small and Micro Financial Services Group Co., Ltd. ("Ant Financial"), the owner and operator of the world’s leading payments and lifestyle platform Alipay, to become a strategic shareholder of the Group. Ant Financial has a solid foundation built in the online realm, which, along with Asiaray’s unique "Space Management" approach, can create an effective bridge linking advertising solution from the physical world to the virtual domain. During the year, the Group commenced different collaborations using online new O&O media, including collaborations with key opinion leaders, complemented by mobile applications such as TikTok that echo the offline campaigns. Leveraging the strengths of the Group, including its rich experience in O&O media, combined with the attributes of the new shareholder, it is expected to bolster its existing businesses while exploring new avenues, supported by the synergies between the two parties.

Prospects

Looking ahead, the global economy is expected to experience significant headwinds, yet, despite such glum projections for the global economy, with infections gradually stabilizing and pent consumption demand continuously building, the Group remains optimistic on the long-term outlook. With a new era of consolidation likely to commence in the wake of COVID-19, the Group will leverage its robust network that covers all range of city tiers, as well as its strong cash position and sophisticated management to facilitate and capture opportunities that arise. In Mainland China, the Group will continue to spare no effort to further enhance its extensive business footprint, and provide a comprehensive network to maximize advertising value. For the Hong Kong market, it is believed that dynamic mix of media solutions, comprising metro lines, billboards, and now, bus advertising, will stand the Group in good stead in coping with whatever challenges that may come. Moreover, with the Group’s outstanding O&O strategy, it is able to provide more value-added advertising solution to the customers. The Group has secured the exclusive concession rights at MTR Tuen Ma Line Phase 1 subsequent to the review year, which connects Wu Kai Sha and Kai Tak. Asiaray will look further to strengthen the foundation to better penetrate the public transport advertising market, as well as seize new opportunities that reinforces its leadership in the OOH advertising industry in Hong Kong.

Having established a beachhead in Singapore during the review year, the Group will leverage this geographical position as springboard for expanding its footprint in Southeast Asia. The Group will direct more resources to reinforce its presence in the Lion City, as it also strives to enhance ties with SMRT Trains. Moreover, the Group has completed a programmatic transformation project with Rubicon Project in January 2020, enabling Asiaray to programmatically trade its DOOH display and video inventory across Hong Kong and Singapore. Going forward, the Group will seek more opportunities for cooperation and strive to develop even more effective online and offline solutions that cater for advertisers’ needs.

Mr. Lam concluded, "2019 marks a remarkable year to Asiaray as we achieved several milestones amid the challenging environment. We strongly trust the belief when there is challenge, there is opportunity. Although 2020 is expected to remain challenging, we are optimistic to the outlook armed by our solid foundation. We will continue to seek for suitable opportunities arising from market consolidation and provide the best OOH communication solutions with the highest return on investment in an effective manner. On the other hand, we look forward to the cooperation especially in the development of O&O strategy with Ant Financial, thus to sustain growth and create value for our shareholders."

雅仕维公布2019年度全年业绩

By | PR, SC

实现不同领域的里程碑

首度踏出大中华地区

进一步加强其广泛的业务网络

香港2020年3月28日 /美通社/ — 策略重心定于机场及地铁广告媒体经营的户外媒体公司雅仕维传媒集团有限公司雅仕维集团;股份代号:1993.HK)公布截至 2019 年 12 月 31 日止财政年度的全年业绩(年内)。

纵使面对具挑战性的环境,凭借集团稳健的业务基础及完善的网络,年内仍录得稳定收入 18.8 亿港元(2018年:19.3 亿港元)。撇除人民币贬值的原因,集团收入录得轻微增长。由于 2019 年下半年营商环境波动,毛利录得 397.8 百万港元,而毛利率为 21.2%。此外,EBITDA(除利息、税项、折旧及摊销前盈利)上升 312.6% 为约 808.7 百万港元。总体收入(包括合并收入及集团全部从事媒体广告业务之联营公司的收入)录得 26.3 亿港元(2018 年:28.0 亿港元)。然而,受到个别新项目仍处于起步阶段,以及香港财务报告准则第 16 号租赁于 2019 年 1 月 1 日生效,引致初期重大影响,集团截至年内录得净亏损 108.7 百万港元。

雅仕维主席兼执行董事林德兴先生表示:过去一年,由于中美贸易战及许多不确定因素,全球经济环境仍然不稳定。尽管如此,雅仕维仍能利用其有效的业务策略及强大的业务基础来维持稳定表现。年内,集团实现多个里程碑,特别是我们将业务版图扩展至新加坡,让集团首度踏出大中华地区。在香港,我们扩展业务范围至巴士业务,获得九巴和龙运巴士的媒体资源。我们亦引入蚂蚁金服为策略股东,并推出了线上线下新媒体策略,希望通过此线上线下的策略合作来加强现有业务。连同于 2019 年发展一系列的新项目,集团将致力改善业务范畴,并进一步加强其完善的媒体资源网络。

业务回顾

2019 年,地铁线及广告牌业务分部继续成为集团的主要收入来源。然而,受中美贸易战带来的负面影响,以及经营环境疲弱,使其业务合作伙伴香港铁路有限公司及深圳地铁线的收入下跌,分部收益因此下降至 9.19 亿港元(2018: 9.75 亿港元),分部毛利录得 1.37 亿港元(2018: 1.84 亿港元)及分部毛利率为 14.9%。尽管如此,集团上半年取得多条主要地铁线媒体资源的独家特许经营权,包括北京地铁 14 号线﹑温州轨道交通 S1 线及杭州地铁 5 号线,成功扩展于京津冀地区及长三角的业务据点。集团向新加坡陆路交通管理局取得汤申 — 东海岸线的广告特许经营权,建立集团在大中华地区以外的首个据点。集团亦取得多个新广告牌资源,包括部分 LED 资源及楼宇外墙。此外,雅仕维亦首次取得位于澳门的两个广告牌资源,分别是英皇南湾中心与盛世酒店, 进一步丰富了其完善的大湾区组合。

年内,机场业务收益录得稳定增长,收入上升 1.6%至 7.39 亿港元,主要由于持续获得一系列新项目,以及现有项目例如云南机场﹑珠海国际机场及乌鲁木齐机场的业务改善。此分部毛利达至 2.17 亿港元,毛利率为 29.4%。集团现时坐拥覆盖整个海南岛的媒体资源。受惠于海南岛的离岸免税政策,海口美兰机场是该岛内少数由省级国有企业获准从事免税品经营的地点之一。除海口机场外,集团亦拥有岛上博鳌机场和三亚凤凰国际机场的广告媒体经营权。年内,集团亦再次获得独家特许权以继续经营昆明机场的媒体资源,扩大了其机场媒体广告网络。这些新取得的特许经营权将进一步加强集团在中国西南地区的业务版图,并巩固其在大中华区的行业示范地位。

继集团获得高速铁路(香港段)和港珠澳大桥(珠澳口岸)的独家媒体资源后,集团于 2019 年透过获授九龙巴士(一九三三)有限公司(九巴)及龙运巴士有限公司(龙运巴士)的独家特许经营权,取得另一项新广告媒体。由于巴士广告可轻易接触到众多人口,其曝光率及影响属非常重要及有效。凭借雅仕维独特的空间管理方法及丰富的公共运输广告经验,与九巴及龙运巴士的合作定能壮大双方的实力,并能共同把握公共交通广告市场的商机。

此外,集团贯彻落实线上线下策略,务求令数码户外广告业务发挥作用,从而提供无缝观众体验的综合策略。于 2019 年,集团的综合线上线下策略及现有的程序化数码户外广告平台,是吸引全球支付及生活平台支付宝的拥有人及营运人-浙江蚂蚁小微金融服务集团股份有限公司(蚂蚁金服)成为集团战略股东的其中因素。蚂蚁金服在线上领域拥有稳固基础,再配合雅仕维独特的「空间管理」模式,正好打造出有效连接实体世界到虚拟领域的广告解决方案。年内,集团在不同合作方案中采用新的线上线下媒体,包括与网络红人合作,以及透过抖音等手机应用程序结合线下宣传。凭借集团的优势,包括其在线上线下媒体方面的丰富经验,以及新股东具有的优势,预计双方合作所产生的协同效应,将能加强现有业务,同时开拓新发展路向。

前景

展望未来,全球经济预计会遇到逆境,然而,即使全球经济预测暗淡,随着感染情况渐趋稳定,以及受压抑的消费需求持续累积,集团对长期前景维持乐观。新型冠状病毒疫情后很可能展开新一轮整合,预期会出现经济复苏并产生庞大机遇。集团将善用其涵盖各级城市的坚实网络,稳健的现金状况以及精确管理,以促成及把握涌现的机遇。在中国内地,集团将继续不遗余力地进一步扩大其现有的业务版图,并提供一个全面的网络以争取广告价值。在香港市场方面,集团相信其多元化媒体解决方案组合包括地铁,广告牌以及加入巴士广告,将让集团准备万全应对任何未来困难。此外,凭借集团出色的线上线下策略,能够为客户提供更多的增值广告方案。集团于回顾年度后更取得营运连接乌溪沙及启德的屯马线一期铁路之媒体资源独家经营权。集团将继续强化根基,以进一步渗透于公共交通广告市场,并巩固在香港户外广告行业的领导地位。

集团于年内在新加坡设立首个据点后,将利用此地理位置为跳板,进一步扩大其在东南亚的业务版图。集团将投入更多资源以加强其在新加坡的业务,同时亦会积极维持与新加坡地铁密切关系。此外,集团于今年一月已完成与全球数码广告交易平台 — Rubicon Project 合作的程序化转型项目,让集团能就其于香港及新加坡的数码户外广告发布及录像库存进行程序化地买卖。展望将来,集团将寻求更多合作机会,致力发展出更有效的线上线下方案,以切合广告客户的需求。

林先生总结:2019 年对雅仕维来说是意义非凡的一年,集团在充满挑战的环境中仍能实现多项里程碑。我们坚信有危便有机这信念,即使预计 2020 年将继续充满挑战,凭着集团扎实的业务基础,我们对前景仍然保持乐观。我们将继续从市场整合中寻求合适的机会,以高效率方式提供户外广告解决方案,以获取高投资回报。另外,我们期待与蚂蚁金服的合作,发展线上线下策略,从而维持稳定增长及为股东缔造价值。

关于雅仕维传媒集团有限公司(股份代号:1993.HK

积木集团发布未经审核2019年业绩公告:全年总营收1.1亿港元,同比下降49.8%

By | PR, SC

香港2020年3月28日 /美通社/ — 香港上市公司积木集团有限公司(下称:“积木集团”,08187.HK)发布了未经审核2019年全年业绩公告。报告显示,公司于2019年全年共实现综合收入1.1亿港元,同比下降49.8%,其中两大主营业务鞋履和贷款中介服务分别贡献3103万、7915万港元,均录得亏损。




报告显示,受全球经济不明朗、中美贸易摩擦及鞋履行业竞争激烈等因素影响,鞋履业务的占比和收益持续下降,由2018年的1.23亿港元下降至3103万港元,同比下降74.8%。

2019年上半年增长强劲的贷款中介业务,在下半年由于经济存在的诸多不确定性,放款人放款意愿减弱,采取更为保守的做法导致贷款中介服务业务增长放缓,与2018年同期相比,贷款中介业务营收同比下滑17.7%,收入7915万港元。报告数据显示,2019年全年,贷款前中介服务的收入为6392万港元,占公司整体营收的58%,贷款后中介服务的收入为1523万港元,占比增至13.8%。

贷款中介业务于2018年第二季度开展,至2019年12月底,积木集团累计服务客户15505人,累计促成贷款总金额12.2亿人民币,促成贷款平均金额约7.9万人民币。其中,报告期内贷款中介业务总计服务客户6871人,促成贷款总金额为5.67亿人民币,与2018年同期相比,均有小幅下滑。




报告提到,积木集团用以开展贷款中介业务的分支机构进一步增加,截至2019年12月底,已经在中国不同地区设立了超50个分支机构。该类分支机构主要专注于三四线城市的小微和三农客户,该等客戶通常具有较强的中短期小额融资需求,以支持实体经营主体的发展及资金周转,但较一线城市的同类客戶而言,缺乏对于市场上可用融资解決方案的知识或途径。

积木集团通过互联网技术,自主建立信贷评级系统,统计客户的财务状况、借款历史及相应的行为模式,给出相应的信用评级,并通过线下走访和实地调查等手段,交叉验证客户信贷需求的真实性和风险度。最终,基于该信用评级和尽职调查,该集团将综合决定是否向合适的资金来源作出贷款推荐并提供相应的贷后服务。

报告同时指出,由于中国经济存在的诸多不确定性,导致放款人在2019年下半年放款意愿减弱,采取较为保守的做法。同时,于2020年初爆发的新型冠状病毒肺炎令贷款中介业务的前景进一步变差,借款人对贷款中介业务的需求也随之减少。全国疫情的爆发对公司的运营及业务计划有一定的影响,预计未来仍会有一段非常艰难的时期。

By | EN, PR

HONG KONG and SHANGHAI, March 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ping An Insurance (Group) Company of China, Ltd. (hereafter "Ping An" or the "Group", HKEx:2318; SSE:601318) announced that in response to the Extraordinary G20 Leaders’ Summit’s call to support Indonesia in fighting the COVID-19 epidemic, Ping An and its Chairman Ma Mingzhe have donated a batch of medical supplies to Indonesia with a total value of US$1.5 million. The supplies include medical equipment, such as COVID-19 diagnostic test kits, infusion pumps and patient monitors. The donation also includes medical technology support such as COVID-19 smart image-reading system and AskBob medical AI assistants.

In detail, the donated items include 10,000 sets of safety goggles, 10,000 sets of COVID-19 diagnostic test kits, 150,000 swab kits, 200 infusion pumps, and 100 patient monitors. Medical technology support includes 1,000 sets of COVID-19 smart image-reading system and 10,000 AskBob medical AI assistants. The medical technology donated were developed by Ping An. The AskBob medical AI assistant can be used to provide the public with COVID-19 education and Q&A assistance. The COVID-19 smart AI-empowered image reading system can generate accurate and rapid analysis of CT scans for each individual case within 15 seconds, with an accuracy rate reaching 97%. This service can aid and support doctor efficiency and accuracy in diagnosis. Ping An’s COVID-19 smart image-reading system has provided services to more than 1,500 medical institutions in China, including Hubei Province, and has assisted doctors with analysis in over a million CT scans for more than 20,000 patients.

In the past two months, the COVID-19 situation in China has improved with businesses and lives gradually returning to normal. However, the epidemic is still raging in many parts of the world, posing severe challenges to the health systems of many countries. On 20 March, the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta, declared a state of emergency and urgently needed support from the international community in terms of medical supplies and epidemic detection. This donation is in response to the Indonesian government’s request for international assistance.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, Ping An has continuously introduced various initiatives in terms of insurance protection, public welfare donations and medical services, to play its part as a responsible corporate citizen. So far, Ping An has donated more than USD20 million (RMB150 million) of supplies and cash in China. Ping An has also provided free insurance protection for frontline medical staff, journalists, police officers and volunteers. Ping An joined hands with Ming Yuan Charity Fund and has donated RMB18 million to the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences to support the Phase III clinical trials of COVID-19 drug Remdesivir and other clinical trials to combat COVID-19.

Ping An’s subsidiary Ping An Good Doctor has cooperated with 62 provincial, municipal and regional governments to provide real-time online and phone consultations. Since the outbreak, the total number of platform visits handled was 1.72 billion. Ping An Healthcare Testing Center was among the first batch of third party medical institutions authorized by Hubei Province to carry out the Nucleic Acid Test (NAT); the primary reference for COVID-19 diagnosis. The Center has also deployed 64-slice Mobile CT imaging vehicles, with over 500 tests conducted daily and over 22,000 tests conducted to date. Ping An Smart Healthcare, the smart health care team of subsidiary Ping An Smart City, created the "National Real-time COVID-19 Update System", covering 21 provinces and 31 cities. It provides smart epidemic forecasting for relevant national ministries and commissions as well as 15 provincial health committees, achieving more than 98% accuracy for 1-day forecast and 97% accuracy for 7-day forecast. Ping An Good Doctor cooperated with Grab, the Southeast Asia ride-hailing service provider, to co-launch an online medical service platform "GrabHealth" to help Indonesia in the fight against COVID-19, providing more than 10,000 daily consultations. 

"There is no distance too far between friends, for friendship gives wings to the heart." Ping An said, "The Extraordinary G20 Leaders’ Summit has called on the international community to work together to establish a united front to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic, which is a common threat to humanity. Unity and cooperation is needed more than ever as the coronavirus knows no borders. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic, countries around the world, including Indonesia, have supported China in fighting the epidemic. At present with many countries and regions suffering from the epidemic, Ping An stands ready to do its part by leveraging its advantages in insurance protection, financial services and healthtech to help prevent and control the global epidemic, and looks forward to a resounding victory in the fight against the epidemic in the near future."
