Sorry to say this company thriving to get contracts but not qualified to do so as they're services not software company , new government cut cost and this company won't get the cake of it

You can all in now if u have confidence, dividend 7m PAT 7m, next qr profit below 7m and still give dividend will be red flag to investors

PBT is about the same at 11.3Mil compare to last year same period of 11.6Mil.
allocate additional 1.19 Mil for tax. This mean co is expecting better earning for the year.
Read qtrly report carefully and you will find good hints in there

Q1 FY23 tax at 2.608mil
Q1 FY24 tax at 3.790Mil

Trying to prove the company doing very good , but look few years really not that worth, every year 7% dividend but share price still stagnant, trade it better than dividend it . The boss been doing this for many qrs already

Only record breaking revenue or profit or announcement of mega project will make the price fly. If not it will continue side way.

Revenue seems relatively stable, albeit decreasing slightly year-on-year, but what is concerning is that the net margin has progressively decreased from its peak of 13.6% in the December quarter of 2022 to 12.1% in the September quarter of 2023. This raises the concern that the company could get caught between inflating costs and an incapacity to increase prices.

The high dividend is also worrying. As an veteran CEO once told me several decades ago, "it's easy to hide a poor performance in a good dividend". Just look at what happened to Astro. It was going great guns and paying a whopping dividend of around 9% ... until it wasn't.

By looking at the balance sheet and cash flowbtements, besides its new undertakings, we can to some extent gauge the future trends of the company.. I feel those with good cashflow...without the need for big capex ..should return the extra cash to shareholders..

AGM insight during the time I attended:
1. Current staff force 3200
2. Medic Tech will launch next year Jan
3. E govt Malaysia they secured few projects
4. Overseas e govt like Zanzibar now is still doing in process.
5. Core profit is healthy. Healthy cash flow and FCF.

Scicom started into AI of chat bot. Hope good news of collaboration with third party soon!

2023-12-15 15:30

So based on weichong89 positive information, we should continue to collect Scicom. After ex the share price still not much different.

We shall see how long the share price will stay below RM 1.10.

So good Goreng Pisang. It is extremely undervalued stock.

A matter of time before it breaks 1.00 , due to AI

Scicom already started the AI of chatbot. Furthermore waiting the good news for its MDtec and NIISe2.0 ( Immigresen) project:)

"BPO will never disappear, and it will continue to grow with AI. In the next five years, Malaysia will be very strategic, which it already is for the BPO industry.

As of now, many big giants in the BPO industry are already establishing themselves in Malaysia, while five years ago they didn’t consider being in Malaysia. For example, Teleperformance, Concentrix, 24-in touch, UBase, and the list goes on."
"The general view about BPO is that it's a call center or a contact center, but BPO is an industry, and call centers and contact centers are part of it, along with other verticals such as back office, knowledge outsourcing, solution outsourcing, etc."

Scicom suspended trading? What happen?

Challenge facing from Scicom:
The industry itself is bracing for change with the threat of substitute products and services such as the advent of technology driven innovation such as AI and RPA by customers enabling them to reduce their transactional volume and therefore their cost to serve their customers.

Agreed 1.08 price point places this counter as undervalued. Low participation by inst funds; KWSP & Eastspring listed 2%+ ea with most concentration to insiders. Drivers for higher prices upward of RM1.80:
- more institutional take up
- harnessing Ai into their offerings

For now, one of few counters paying consistent dividend (high) every quarter. So entry at 1.08 is a good deal for long term accumulation & compounding.

AI is becoming a valuable tool for BPO companies. BPO companies can significantly reduce repetitive tasks using robotic process automation (RPA) and AI. By improving productivity and efficiency. BPOs will become even more effective investments. Integrating AI and RPA is the most anticipated emerging trend in business process outsourcing industry.

Next report due late May'24 for qtr ending Mar'24
One of few counters paying dividends every quarter, pretty decent yield ~7.4%(TTM). Price upper bound by 1.12~1.16 levels. Still pretty decent PER 13, not bid up by speculators. Stable, slow and steady.

@amilytay @c328
One needs to approach Ai cautiously. Yet to see any initiative from SCICOM, in fact they could enhance their ticker quality by putting out a professional Nasdaq-style quarterly slide deck.

LittleKnife. this counter not for goreng. is for div investing. 1.05 and now 1.09 is on few cents. which you can earn it back down the road.

@awp380, is the dividend of 8 cents sustainable? I used to owned Scicom, and sold it off at 1.14. Now I have extra money, and plan to buy it back at this pricing but worry the profit is not sustainable. When profit drops, I worry the dividend yield will drop...
