Sarawak Consolidated Industries Berhad Signs MoU for Indonesian 4G Telco Tower Project

KUCHING, MALAYSIA, Aug 3, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Civil engineering specialist Sarawak Consolidated Industries Berhad (SCIB) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PT. Semesta Noor Berkarya (SNB) and PT. Envy Manajemen Konsultansi (EMK) to explore the formation of a partnership in relation to the construction of 4G telecommunications towers for Indonesia's outermost regions.


Rosland bin Othman, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of SCIB


Under the MoU, SCIB will anchor the formation of the partnership as well as providing the corporate management setup. SNB, a state-owned enterprise of the Republic of Indonesia is an engineering, procurement and construction specialist with expertise in handing large-scale domestic projects, will build and install the 4G telecommunications towers, including site survey and acquisition as well as other supporting infrastructure works. EMK, which is involved in business advisory, consultation, project management and other corporate management activities, will provide project management services through operational and technical supervision.

The project, which comes under Indonesia's Telecommunications and Information Accessibility Agency (Bakti), is expected to take three years to complete and involves the construction and installation of 4G telecommunications towers in 3,704 villages. Bakti is an agency under the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology tasked to provide the telecommunications network.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of SCIB, Encik Rosland bin Othman, said, "We look forward to working with SNB and EMK on the project, which is part of the push to provide internet accessibility to Indonesia's outermost, remote and underdeveloped areas as part of the country's national digital transformation framework."

"SCIB is at a distinct advantage for this project as more than 60% of the proposed sites of the 4G telco towers are located in Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo, which provides optimal opportunities to synergise our business as our three factories are located in Kuching, Sarawak. The project supports our strategy to diversify geographically by seeking opportunities for our engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) business, and we will certainly take this opportunity to also explore roles in the building of Indonesia's multibillion-dollar new capital at Nusantara."

SCIB leverages on its manufacturing business producing building materials as well as Industrialised Building System (IBS) to complement the EPCC business. The Company is the largest precast and IBS manufacturer in East Malaysia with the capacity to produce 500,000 tonnes of building materials annually.

MEXC Global Lists $MYST by Mysterium Network, a Cryptocurrency to Fight Growing Internet Censorship Worldwide

Switzerland, Jul 14, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Major cryptocurrency exchange MEXC Global has listed $MYST token by Mysterium Network (www.mysterium.network), the Swiss-based Web 3.0 company challenging the $30 billion VPN industry with its next-generation anonymity network.

Trading of the MYST-USDT (www.mexc.com/exchange/MYST_USDT) pairs opens at 12:00 p.m. UTC on Thursday, July 14, 2022.

The VPN market is estimated to reach more than $77 billion by 2026. With increasing censorship, shutdowns and surveillance online, over a quarter of the world's internet users depend on a VPN for daily internet access. Most recently in Sudan, authorities cut off access to the internet to disrupt anti-government protests being held nationwide.

Internet disruptions also come at a great cost to the global economy. In 2022, a total of over 19,000 hours of downtime cost the worldwide economy more than $10 billion.

"These kinds of internet shutdowns are becoming common practice by governments around the world. Saldy, they are increasing in number, rather than slowing down. While there are some great initiatives and campaigns to call out these abuses of power, including from the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, we need to focus on building internet infrastructure and tools that are resistant to shutdowns and censorship," says Donatas Grinkas, Head of Mysterium Network.

Mysterium's open-source web infrastructure is making the internet borderless and accessible for all. The network is made up of tens of thousands of exit nodes spread across more than 130 countries. These nodes are run by everyday people using devices such as computers and Raspberry Pis to share their IP addresses to users and businesses around the world in exchange for MYST, a utility token native to the network. There are already thousands of nodes around the world earning passive income daily (https://mystnodes.com), providing a secure line of communication and access to the open internet.

This peer-to-peer marketplace lays the groundwork for all kinds of services to be built, including the project's flagship product, the Mysterium VPN (www.mysteriumvpn.com), available for Android, Windows, Mac and Linux (iOS in 2022). Developers and entrepreneurs can build encrypted, censorship-resistant tools using the open APIs, while businesses can plug into the network via the B2B service, Lavafy. Launched in 2020, Lavafy is already being used by five VPN clients.

"Regular VPNs are just a band-aid fix for what is a deeply flawed infrastructural problem, which is why we're trying to build a solution that fixes things on the deeper protocol and networking level. Peer-to-peer networks like ours allow users everywhere to easily share web resources with each other, such as storage, computing power and now internet access. The goal is to ensure information flows around the web freely, without any unethical blocks from self-interested corporations and governments," says Grinkas.

During the Year, thanks to the recovery in economic activities and the expansion of customer base, the Group delivered accelerated growth and achieved business turnaround. Its revenue amounted to approximately RMB1,046.30 million, representing a year-on-year surge of 86.7% from approximately RMB560.33 million in the previous year. The gross profit of the Group increased by 53.9% to approximately RMB178.60 million (FY2020/21: approximately RMB116.02 million), while the gross profit margin was 17.1% (FY2020/21: 20.7%). The profit attributable to owners of the Company for the financial year was approximately RMB14.66 million, as compared to loss attributable to owners of the Company of approximately RMB42.10 million in FY2020/21. The basic earnings per share for the financial year was approximately RMB2.67 cents, as compared to the basic loss per share of approximately RMB9.81 cents in the previous year.

Capitalising on favourable policies in ITAI industry and industry digitisation to achieve business growth

From the "13th Five-Year Plan" to the "14th Five-Year Plan", the Central and local governments have been developing the "digital economy" and building "Digital China" as their important objectives, clarifying the "Digital China" construction strategy and seizing the high ground of the digital economy production chain. The governments at all levels are strongly promoting the development of the ITAI industry, facilitating the development of various fields within the industry and driving the transformation of the traditional IT information industry.

With the rapid growth of China's ITAI industry and its penetration into various fields, key core technologies have been researched and developed domestically to foster original innovations. The Central and local governments have made great efforts to promote the ITAI procurement, and are determined to increase the proportion of ITAI product applications, which have begun to enter key industry markets such as finance, telecommunications and energy. The enlarged scale of procurement for domestically-produced equipment as well as software and hardware by all levels, coupled with the expanding market size, have reflected that replacement by domestic production has entered a substantive stage. Riding on the "14th Five-Year Plan" policies, the Group has been proactively growing its ITAI business, which is divided into direct sales and Original Design Manufacturer ("ODM") channels according to its sales model, and actively participating in proprietary tendering to accelerate the launch of its products which have been widely recognised.

Striding into harvesting period as intelligent terminal products sales and software development businesses achieved significant breakthrough

Intelligent terminal products sales business remained the Group's main revenue source, accounting for 85.2% of the total revenue for the financial year. During the Year, the Group focused on the development, production and sales of customised IoT smart terminals for its customers, mainly including notebooks, tablets, all-in-one PCs, desktop PCs, and industrial gateway servers. Benefiting from the recovery of economic activities and the favourable policies of the ITAI industry at the national level, coupled with the orders of ITAI IT products signed earlier by the Group were gradually delivered to customers, the revenue from the sales of intelligent terminal products increased significantly. During the Year, the intelligent terminal products sales business recorded a revenue of approximately RMB891.37 million, representing a significant increase of approximately 121.7% and the growth driver of the Group.

In respect of software development business, the Group planned and designed the software system frameworks and function lists for customers, and provided customised software application development services based on their business and management needs. The software development business accounted for 10.0% of the Group's total revenue. Leveraging its strong software development capabilities, the Group has been providing quality software application development services to serve customers in different industries for many years. In addition to maintaining long-term and strategic relationships with existing customers, the Group also actively explores new customers to expand its customer base and drive sales. During the Year, as a result of the continued expansion of its software development business and its customer base, the Group recorded revenue of approximately RMB104.23 million (FY2020/21: RMB45.49 million), representing a significant year-on-year increase of approximately 129.1%.

With regards to system integration business, based on the analysis and assessment of customers' needs, the Group provides customers with integrated and customised system solutions based on IoT and related technologies. In view that the revenue of the systems integration business is derived from one-off projects with fluctuating revenue as compared to other segments, the Group's systems integration business shrank during the financial year, with revenue slightly dipped to approximately RMB39.82 million (FY2020/21: approximately RMB101.00 million), accounting for 3.8% of the Group's total revenue.

For system maintenance services business, the Group provides software and hardware system maintenance services for information systems, including system equipment maintenance and management, database maintenance, daily system monitoring and system upgrade, etc. During the Year, attributable to its business optimisation and adjustment, the Group's system maintenance services business decreased slightly to approximately RMB10.88 million (FY2020/21: approximately RMB11.83 million), accounting for 1.0% of the Group's total revenue.

Accelerating the launch of products and riding on the favourable policies to promote exponential growth of the Group's business

Riding on the "14th Five-Year Plan" policies, the Group has been proactively expanding its ITAI business and actively participated in proprietary tendering to accelerate the launch of its products. During the Year, the purely domestically-produced notebook computers designed and developed by the Group have entered the market and have been widely recognised. The Group will accelerate the development of the ITAI industry as well as the research and development of products, striving to gain more market share as the Group's purely domestically-produced ITAI IT products are expected to become the growth engine of the Group's future results. While continuously improving its products, the Group will enhance its marketing and promotion efforts for ITAI IT products, and cooperate with industry partners to promote the sales of ITAI IT products of the Group and accelerate the rapid popularisation and promotion of replacement by domestic production in various industries.

As a leading industry digital solutions provider, the Group has collaborated with a number of large state-owned enterprises and private enterprises through different projects and gained extensive project experience in the field of 5G private network. Looking ahead, the Group will build on its successful experience in previous projects and its solid foundation in the industry, as well as the synergies generated with enterprise partners in various aspects such as technology, supply chain and market to organise research and pilot testing for 5G private networks, to optimise the key stages ranging from application to deployment, in order to provide the best quality solutions to operators and industry partners.

Mr. LAI Tse Ming, Chairman and Executive Director of IBO Technology, said, "Our three business segments are closely interconnected and synergistic in terms of underlying technologies, application technologies, supply chains, projects and business models. We strive to integrate and innovate the 5G, ITAI and IoT technologies to form new business models and industrial ecologies, so as to effectively leverage our advantages and integrated technological capabilities to maximise overall value created. In addition, we will actively identify suitable merger and acquisition targets that create strong synergies with our existing principal businesses to support our operations and rapid development. Leveraging the Group's accumulated technologies and strong market demand, our three principal businesses are expected to generate significant synergies, which will contribute to the exponential growth of the Group's overall business development. Going forward, the management will continue to seek breakthroughs and strive to create long-term and stable returns for our investors and shareholders."
