Please share this article:

TOKYO, May 24, 2018 – (ACN Newswire) – China Mobile International Limited (CMI) today hosted the opening ceremony of its Japan office in Tokyo. Attending were Mr. Song Yaoming, Minister of Economic and Commercial Office, Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Japan, Mr. Takagi Seiji, Director General for International Affairs, Global Strategy Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr. Jian Qin, Executive Vice President of China Mobile Communications Group Co., Ltd., and Mr. Li Feng, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of China Mobile International Limited.

Mr. Song Yaoming said, “The 2020 Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo, which will predictably bring many business opportunities to Japan. And the number of tourists from all over the world, especially China, will increase significantly. Communications services are becoming one of the key development priorities in Japan’s infrastructure construction. The establishment of the CMI Japan office will not only provide convenience for Chinese and Japanese companies to expand their businesses, but also provide the tourists more preferential roaming charges and better services. I hope that Japanese companies will take the opportunity to learn more about China Mobile and explore cooperation opportunities with China Mobile.”

Mr. Takagi Seiji added, “While government support is important, enterprises are principal in strengthening the telecommunications cooperation between two countries. Japanese telecom companies are actively engaged in China and are working globally with Chinese enterprises. Chinese companies have also been active within Japan. We believe that CMI, a subsidiary of China Mobile with the world’s largest subscriber base, establishing its Japan office to strive to move forward in Japan is about the right time.”

Mr. Jian Qin stated, “This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Sino-Japanese Treaty of Peace and Friendship. During a visit to Japan earlier this month, Prime Minister Li Keqiang indicated that China and Japan now have many new opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation, as both countries are strongly complementary in economies. We should further strengthen collaboration in key areas such as energy conservation, environmental protection, technology innovation, high-end manufacturing, finance, the sharing economy and health care, and we should positively explore possibilities for cooperation in ‘the Belt and Road’ and jointly develop third-party markets.

“Trade and economic relations between China and Japan are inseparable from the connectivity of the Internet. The establishment of the Japan office will promote interrelation of information and communications infrastructure, and strengthen cooperation in emerging technologies such as 5G and IoT. This will not only provide localized and high-quality telecommunications services for overseas Chinese enterprises, but also build a communication bridge for Japanese companies to access China, as well as all Asian and European countries along the ‘the Belt and Road’.”

Information and communications technology is developing at a breakneck pace in today’s hyper-connected world. In view of this, China Mobile is executing on its “Big Connectivity” strategy, which outlines China Mobile’s ambition to globalise its business to meet increasing global demands in data consumption. To provide competitive international telecommunication services to the 890 million China Mobile subscribers, CMI is continuously accelerating its pace in expanding global network deployment and scale of connectivity.

The company presently owns 40 submarine and terrestrial cables, 138 PoPs, and expects to complete 10 global Internet data centres (IDC) construction in 3 years. In Asia, CMI has launched 41 PoPs, providing transmission, IPVPN and Internet services. CMI also participated in the construction of the NCP and SJC2 submarine cable systems, and facilitated large capacity connection within Asia Pacific. In future, CMI will continue to participate in the construction of international communications facilities, provide high-quality connectivity services for operators and enterprises, and strive to become a trustworthy partner.

Successfully Adds 19 New Construction Services Projects and One BLMT Project;
Strong Project Pipeline and Solid Foundation Laid for Growth in Future Earnings

HONG KONG, May 22, 2018 – (ACN Newswire) – BGMC International Limited (“BGMC” or the “Group”) (HKEX: 1693), a Malaysia-based construction services company, has announced its interim results for the six months ended 31 March 2018 (“1H2018” or the “Period”).

During the Period, the Group’s revenue was RM311.9 million (approximately HK$642.5 million) (1H2017: RM359.1 million), despite most of the projects being still at the early stage of completion. Gross profit amounted to RM44.8 million (approximately HK$92.3 million), while gross margin was 14.4% (1H2017: RM65.9 million and 18.4% respectively). The decrease in gross profit was mainly due to the early stage of progress for most of the projects in hand; and the wait for the final account and claim settlement of the completed projects. Consequently, the Group’s net profit for the Period was RM13.6 million (approximately HK$28.0 million) (1H2017: RM32.6 million).

Despite relatively fewer projects having been booked in 1H2018, the Group has maintained its business momentum by securing new projects and contracts during the Period, which has laid a solid foundation for the growth of its future earnings. During the Period, the Group has successfully added 19 new projects worth RM244.5 million (approximately HK$503.7 million) in contract value.

Construction Services
The Construction Services sector continued to be BGMC’s main revenue contributor, contributing 98.2% or RM306.4 million in 1H2018 (approximately HK$631.2 million) (1H2017: RM353.8 million).

During 1H2018, the Building and Structure segment contributed 73.6% or RM245.2 million (approximately HK$505.1 million). The projects near completion included MSM Warehouse, the Serini Melawati and D’Pristine Medini. Meanwhile, those projects progressing well included the Sky Seputeh, Setia Spice and V-Residency 5. The Group had also started new projects such as the Building Works for the Melaka 2,422 megawatt (“mw”) Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (“CCGT”) Power Plant and the Tenaga Nasional Berhad (“TNB”) Worker’s Quarters. Moreover during the Period, BGMC secured four new contracts worth RM163.7 million (approximately HK$337.2 million) including the Building Works for the Melaka 2,422mw CCGT Power Plant and the TNB Worker’s Quarters. The Group had an outstanding order book of RM799.9 million (approximately HK$1,647.8 million).

For 1H2018, BGMC undertook Energy Transmission and Distribution works that involved the installation of 132 kilovolt (“kV”) underground cabling systems and the construction of a 275/132kV power substation. This segment has contributed 8.9% or RM29.5 million (approximately HK$60.8 million) of BGMC’s revenue in 1H2018 and it had recorded healthy growth of 10.5%. The increase was made possible with the construction of PMU 275/132kV Tanjung Langsat which is close to completion while the underground cabling works into PMU MRT Semantan from PMU Damansara City to PMU Brickfield have also made to an advance progress. With the award of another new contract for 132kV underground cabling installation works from PMU Sri Hartamas to PMU Matrade worth RM15.2 million (approximately HK$31.3 million), this segment had an outstanding order book of RM92.6 million as at 31 March 2018 (approximately HK$190.8 million).

During 1H2018, the Mechanical and Electrical segment has contributed RM22.0 million (approximately HK$45.3 million) in revenue, accounting for 6.6% of BGMC’s total revenue. The segment has a total of 18 ongoing projects. During the Period, the Group secured 12 new contracts in this segment worth RM28.8 million (approximately HK$59.3 million) in total and had retained healthy outstanding contracts worth RM160.7 million (approximately HK$331.0 million).

The Earthwork and Infrastructure segment has recorded RM9.6 million (approximately HK$19.8 million) of revenue in 1H2018 or 2.9% of the total revenue. BGMC has secured a new contract in 1H2018 for earthworks, soil improvements works, instrumentation works and its associated works at Kuala Langat for a contract sum of RM36.0 million (approximately HK$74.2 million). This new contract has boosted the outstanding orders to RM48.5 million (approximately HK$99.9 million) in total as of 31 March 2018.

Concession and Maintenance Services Sector
In 1H2018, the Concession segment recorded an imputed interest income of RM21.5 million (approximately HK$44.3 million), while the Maintenance Services segment contributed RM5.5 million (approximately HK$11.3 million) (1H2017: RM21.8 million and RM5.3 million respectively) to the Group’s revenue. The remaining contract period for our UiTM Concession stood at 17 years and 8 months as of 31 March 2018. The outstanding imputed interest income for its Concession segment that is yet to be recognized is amounted to RM853.8 million (approximately HK$1,758.8 million) while the outstanding contract value for the Maintenance Services segment is now amounted to RM189.9 million (approximately HK$391.2 million).

The success of the UiTM Build, Lease, Maintain and Transfer (“BLMT”) project has elevated BGMC’s performance and profile in the Concession and Maintenance Services sector and this in turn has enhanced the ability to secure more concessions in the future. Leveraging the experience and expertise in the Construction Services sector and the Concession and Maintenance Services sector, BGMC has secured another concession project to construct and develop a Large Scale Solar PV Plant (“LSSPV Plant”) of 30 megawatt alternate current (“MWa.c.) at Kuala Muda, Kedah, Malaysia. It has accepted the letter of award from the Energy Commission of Malaysia and signed a 21-year power purchase agreement with TNB, the sole electricity distributor in Peninsular Malaysia. The commercial operation date of the LSSPV Plant is scheduled to be on 30 September 2020.

In Malaysia, BGMC foresees construction projects to increase which will also increase the number of concession projects in transportation, road, communications, healthcare, energy and education sectors undertaken by the government of Malaysia. BGMC believes that it is working from a position of strength to capture the concession projects under the Private Finance Initiative programme which will widen its customer base and at the same time, strengthen its reputation in both Malaysia and the regional construction landscape.

BGMC sees promising prospects as it boasts both a high outstanding value and a strong replenishment of its order book. The newly won concession project to construct and develop a 30 MWa.c. LSSPV plant will boost the Group’s performance over the next 24-to-36 months.

Tan Sri Barry Goh, Chairman and Executive Director of BGMC, said, “Moving forward, we will optimise productivity and replenish the order books in the next six months, tendering for projects in the corporate, both the residential and commercial property and industrial sectors, government-linked projects and supporting infrastructure projects in Malaysia as well as seize opportunities available elsewhere in the Southeast Asia region. At the same time, we will look for possible opportunities via strategic partnerships to extend our portfolio and footprint across the region, thereby increasing our market share in the near future.”

As at 31 March 2018, BGMC’s order book for the Construction Services sector stood at RM3.6 billion (approximately HK$7.4 billion), while its outstanding order book stood at RM1.1 billion (approximately HK$2.3 billion).
