Kuala Lumpur, 19 June 2019 – Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”) will continue to intensify its focus on the information technology (“IT”) and eServices sector as part of efforts to drive business growth.
The company made great strides in expanding its IT and eServices business last year despite challenges in the domestic and global markets. During the year, the IT and eServices division continues to serve as the core revenue driver of the Group.
DNeX recorded its highest revenue since 2007 with a year on year ("YoY") growth of 44 per cent at RM293.5 million in the financial year ending 31 December 2018 (“FY2018”) from RM203.9 million the previous year.
The IT and eServices division continues to serve as the core revenue driver of DNeX, contributing 82 per cent of the Group’s revenue and 79 per cent of profit after tax in FY2018.
Meanwhile, the Energy division has managed to reap benefits from its strategic investment in Ping Petroleum Limited, which has also contributed positively to the Group’s financial results.
“Going forward, our focus remains on solidifying the foundation of our core divisions to ensure long-term business resilience and sustainability amidst the challenging operating landscape,” said Datuk Samsul Husin, Executive Deputy Chairman of DNeX.
“We are also working diligently to expand the Group’s offerings within the Trade Facilitation ecosystem under the Dagang Net Digital Platform initiative to provide end-to-end innovative services to our customers. The unified business platform offers a variety of services that are aimed to reach, engage and connect the Group’s customers and businesses through innovative products and services that create value for stakeholders,” he said.
He added that System Integration and Consultancy will also be one of the key levers of growth, as the Group is actively pursuing for new projects in the public and private sectors locally and overseas.
As the Group tries to maximise the use of its resources and assets in Energy, DNeX will consider monetising investments that can yield attractive returns particularly investments with smaller shareholding and control.
The Group is also committed to execute its cost optimisation programme driving towards achieving improvements in operational efficiency and business profitability based on a sustainable cost structure.
