聚焦3大业务立通国际放眼明年转盈

图内: 刘必顺乐观看待2018财年表现   在脱售亏损业务和重组企业架构后,立通国际(REDTONE,0032,创业板)有信心在2018财年转亏为盈,并看好旗下3大业务的营业额在来年都会增长。 总执行长刘必顺接受《南洋商报》独家专访时指出,上财年公司一直在强化营运模式,并积极脱售在中国蒙受亏损业务,以继续专注在本地市场。 “公司上财年末季,其实已经开始转亏为盈,并录得近350万令吉的净利。” 立通国际在去年10月时,以3831万人民币(约2378万令吉),脱售自2014年起持续亏损的中国子公司——立通亚洲有限公司全数或92.31%股权。 冀IDS贡献10% 另一方面,刘必顺预计,公司3大业务,包括电信服务、管理式电信网络服务(MTNS)和业界数码服务(IDS)的营业额,在2018财年也会有所增长。 其中,他点出包括云端服务、物联网(IoT)、数据中心以及医疗领域的IDS业务,将会有显著增长。 “公司放眼,IDS业务将在2018财年,贡献公司总营业额的10%。” 无论如何,他指出,电信服务和MTNS业务仍是公司最主要的收入来源,他也有信心这2项业务在2018财年,会超越上财年的表现。 “这2项业务的营业额贡献,都是属于经常收入,电信服务每年营业额创新高。而MTNS的营业额是源自于长达3至5年的合约。” 根据公司最新财报,电信服务和MTNS在2017财年的营业额,分别录得8429万4000令吉和6846万8000令吉,一共占总营业额的97%;而IDS则只贡献376万3000令吉或占约3%。 续投资云端服务 刘必顺指出,云端项目与公司其他业务环环相扣,因此,将继续投资在该项目里。 “公司已有商家对商家(B2B)的云端服务flexicloud,而云端在物联网以及数据中心的业务里,也扮演至关紧要的角色。” 他也透露,每年都会花费1000万令吉,强化各业务的基建和设备。 另外,刘必顺认为,要进行数字转型的企业,可利用云端服务提供的方便捉紧商机,以及最大化经商效率。 另一方面,虽然立通国际刚退出中国市场,但刘必顺点出,只要良机浮现,公司不排除会重返该区域。 “只要是有适合的投资,并会为股东带来利益,我们都会保持开放的态度。”   Source: Nanyang Siang Pau...
