Stratech Systems Records 3-Fold Rise in Half-Year Net Profit to S$0.52 Million

- Revenue up 21 per cent reflecting steady growth

Singapore, 15 November 2008 – Mainboard-listed Stratech Systems Limited (“Stratech” or “the Group”) today announced a net profit of S$0.52 million for the half-year ended 30 September 2008 (“1H2009”), a 3-fold surge from the S$0.15 million reported for the corresponding period last year.

The half-year revenue of S$7.21 million is a 21 per cent increase over the corresponding period, 1H2008.

Half-year net operating expenses inched up 8 per cent to S$4.52 million from $4.19 million. This is due to increase in salaries and employment benefits arising from new projects secured, as well as, higher depreciation and amortisation expenses. However, improved overhead and cost management helped to mitigate the rise in net operating expenses.

The Group’s net assets grew to S$12.9 million at the period-end, up from S$12.2 million at 31 March 2008 .

Commenting on the half year results, Dr David K.M. Chew, Executive Chairman of Stratech, said: “Our positive set of half-year results shows that the Group has progressed steadily. We had clinched several new contracts including Super BullsEye® II projects and e-Systems projects over the past few months. Going forward, Stratech will continue to focus on our ‘powered by Stratech’ strategy to unlock the value of our intellectual properties.”

Recent developments in line with the ‘powered by Stratech’ strategy include:

  • the appointment of SITA as the Group’s global value-added reseller for the iFerret ™ airfield/runway surveillance and foreign object and debris (FOD) detection system
  • the formation of Stratech Aerospace, a wholly-owned subsidiary focused on tapping new markets in airfield/runway surveillance solutions
