*Scicom (MSC) Berhad (SCIC MK)*
*BUY (maintain) Price Target: RM1.43*
*Up/Downside: 17.2% Previous Target (Rating): RM1.33 (BUY)*
*Earnings are sequentially weaker, but within expectations*
➢ Scicom’s 9MFY23 core net profit grew by 8% yoy to RM24.7m on the back
of higher contribution from the e-services segment. The results were within
market and our expectations
➢ 3QFY23 core net profit fell by 22% qoq to RM7.2m due to lower revenue
from both the BPO and e-services segments). Nonetheless, management
has maintained an interim dividend of 2 sen for 3QFY23, bringing its
9MFY23 DPS to 6 sen (9MFY22: 5.0 sen)
➢ Maintain BUY with higher TP of RM1.43 (from RM1.33) on rolling forward
our valuation base to 2024. We continue to like Scicom for its high ROE
business model that focuses on digital solutions and e-services, attractive
valuation of 12x CY24E PER and CY24E dividend yield of 6.7%

@weesiong 92 . High court already struck out the case but EMGS brought it to court of appeal again. Hearing will be in August. My personal opinion of EMGS want to cancel or cease the agreement. They need to compensate to Scicom as well. Let the court decide. This thing beyond our control.
Furthermore Scicom already serves them since 2013. And you suddenly said data not comply with sensitive act and also wanted them to furnish the data. But in agreement the confidential of data is P&C.

Yes Lily Lee. The annualised dividend is better than EPF return based on current price at 1.13
Most importantly their total clients in hand now also above 45. So it will also diversify the risk.

YoY profit up 18.5% and retained profit stands at 76mil. With total cash around 32mil ( cash in Hand + money market fund). As I said earlier QoQ may improve marginally but I was wrong due to transactional volume reduced as consistent with preceeding quarter as reported.
MAS and CELCOM secured total 450 staff only started in May & June ( Q4FY2021 for Scicom). Q4 report will be out usually in August.
Overall cash flow is healthy, zero debt and DPS maintained at 1.5cts translate to annualised of 5.35% ( as I believe Q 4 able to declare 1.5cts as QoQ profit may go up due to higher headcount unless some big cancellation of the projects)
ROE still stay above 21% with decent ROA as well.
Honor and Xiomi also outsourced to Scicom but with small scale and only marginal head count needed currently.
Anywhere those not happy with this co may sell and those still believe in this co may hold or add. It is just your own decision.
Just be Happy and welcome full lockdown and stay safe!

They provides covid-19 Helpdesk to Ministry of Heath. This is third government projects after Sri Lanka Airline and Bank of Ceylon. ( Both Govt owned) and also semi govt owned Seylan Bank.
Currently they are 144 head count for Sri Lanka Airline and 55 head counts rendered to Bank of Ceylon( just started in Feb this year)

Scicom HQ is based at Menara TA. They are renting from TA group( opposite KLCC). Scicom lanka is based in Colombo and one of their subsidiary ( 100% own) So far they only have two BPO offices.
Recently they secured MAS from Mindpearl ( BPO co as well) and Celcom from Aegsis.
About recent spike of covid 19 cases. I think they are doing well because about 90% of their staff work from home to ensure their operation can run smoothly without interruption for their clients.

@feenix1522
I have no idea about Q3 result. But I believe definitely better than Q2 . Reasons behind of additional headcount in like MAS ( 150 staff) and also some additional from Lenovo. Overall I believe Q3 can stand above 7mil after tax. For DPS I think still maintain at 1.5cts per q. The full force of Celcom only reflects in Q4. At time we may hope DPS back to 2cts. Above is just my humble opinion.
