Looks like a stable but boring business. Needs a little more spice for this to move upwards.

IPS Securex posts 10% rise in 1H earnings to $1 million

IPS Securex posts 10% rise in 1H earnings to $1 million

http://www.theedgemarkets.com/sg/art...ings-1-million

SINGAPORE (Feb 3): IPS Securex recorded a 10% increase in half-year net profit to $1 million.

This came on the back of a 20.5% increase in revenue to $7 million, lifted by the group’s security solutions business and the maintenance and leasing business recording revenue gains of $1 million and $158,000 respectively.

Looking ahead, the group reckons that the demand for security products and integrated security solutions will continue to rise and benefit it in the long term.

Shares in IPS ended flat at 19.5 cents on Wednesday.

IPS Securex’s 1Q net loss halves on higher revenue

IPS Securex’s 1Q net loss halves on higher revenue

SINGAPORE (Nov 7): IPS Securex, the provider of security products and integrated security solutions, saw 1Q net loss narrowed by half to $0.22 million from $0.45 million a year ago.

Group revenue rose 36.5% to $2.3 million from $1.7 million. Revenue for the Group’s Security Solutions Business grew 94.3% $0.79 million. Revenue from the Maintenance and Leasing Business increased by 18.4% to $1.5 million.

On the back of the increase in group revenue, gross profit increased by 15.7% to nearly $1 million.

Finance costs increased to $41,000 from $14,000 mainly due to foreign exchange loss attributable to the weakening of the United States dollar in which the group’s sales were denominated against the Singapore dollar.

With persistent threats and continued security concerns in the Asia-Pacific region, IPS Securex says governments would have to continue to purchase, upgrade and replace existing security equipment and systems. This in turn, will provide demand for the group’s security products and integrated security systems in the longer term.

“As such, the group will continue to actively market its range of security products and integrated security solutions to meet the security needs of its customers in the Asia-Pacific region while managing costs,” it adds.

Shares in IPS Securex closed at 8.4 cents on Tuesday.

IPS Securex has made an allowance of doubtful debt of ~SGD3m, which involves the
sale of PepperBall and related equipment to one of its regional customers.

We think the probability of repayment is low, as well as the fulfilment of the USD54.8m
LOI. As a result, we have removed the sale from our estimates, which results in a lower
DCF-backed TP of SGD0.09 (from SGD0.34, 13% upside).

In addition, certain project delays, like AOT’s airports upgrades, also hamper its
prospects going forward. Hence, we downgrade the stock to NEUTRAL (from Buy).

IPS Securex reports narrowing of 3Q losses to $0.2 mil

IPS Securex reports narrowing of 3Q losses to $0.2 mil

https://www.theedgesingapore.com/ips...-losses-02-mil



SINGAPORE (May 8): IPS Securex has posted a narrowing of 3Q losses to $0.2 million, which is half of its 3Q17 loss of $0.4 million a year ago due to lower expenses and a tax write-back.

Revenue for the quarter fell 4.4% to $2.3 million from $2.4 million previously due to reduced contributions from the security solutions business, offset in part by higher revenue from the maintenance and leasing business.

The lower security solutions revenue was largely attributable to lower demand for integrated security solutions in Singapore, while improved revenue from the maintenance and leasing business was due to higher provision of maintenance support services to customers in Singapore.

Finance costs fell 80.7% to $63,870 in 3Q18, from $0.3 million a year ago. This was mainly due to the reduction of foreign exchange loss and the absence of an adjustment last year.

Administrative expenses fell 2.0% to $1.29 million in 3Q18, from $1.31 million a year ago.

This was mainly attributable to the decrease in employees’ remuneration and benefit expenses mainly due to lower staff bonuses accrued, lower professional fees, distribution and marketing expenses and office related expenses.

A tax credit of $25,000 was booked compared to a tax expense of $20,000 a year ago, attributable to a tax write-back due to the reversal of over-provisions made over prior years.

As at end March, cash and cash equivalents stood at $3.4 million.

In its outlook, IPS Securex highlights the steady growth of its maintenance and leasing business despite a slowdown in the industry.

Besides cost management efforts, the group says it has also been engaging in opportunities to bring in new Homeland Security products to Asia to expand its range of offerings in terms of security products and integrated security solutions.

Shares in IPS Securex closed flat at 8.4 cents.
