OpenSys just announced its 2QFY15 result last week.
At first glance, it was a bit disappointed as I afraid the good performance recorded in the first quarter may be one time off did come true.
To recap, there was a jump in CRM machine sales in previous quarter.
It was a normal quarter for the group, just the selling and distribution costs increased 20% compared to previous few quarters. I have no idea about the spike. It may due to higher marketing activities to improve the sales during the quarter.
The main highlight is the group able to reduce its net debt/equity ratio from 23% in the previous quarter to 1.8% only this quarter thanks to better operating cash flow that resulted in higher cash balance.
From the segment reporting, it's good to see that the software outsourcing division was able to maintain above RM8 million revenue. Since the profit margin of the said division is much higher as well as the income is recurring in nature, the profit certainty and consistency are there.
Sale of machines is one time off and low in profit margin, but a small increase in net profit will help to drive up the EPS significantly like previous quarter.
The group also announce dividend and 1-3 bonus issue.
Is CRM still the key moving forward? I think so but the pace of converting it may not be that fast.
Recently few banks are implementing VSS to cut operating cost. So, hopefully they are going to replace the ATM with CRM and also outsourcing their cheque deposit machine to third party to reduce manpower costs.
Combine the quarter results and looking back at my buying price, it did not serve much margin of safety. I may wait until next quarter or dispose it to buy other counters when opportunity arises. Still tempting.
