1) A synergistic business model integrating the provision of building protection works and the supply of building protection products, which complement each other
The Group believes that its expansion into the distribution and supply of building protection products has created a synergy effect on its business. On one hand, it boosted the sale of its building protection products whereby it can bargain for better terms with the brand owners or manufacturers of the products in terms of purchase price, duration of its distribution right, range of products covered, and geographical coverage of its distribution right etc. of the products. On the other hand, the Group is also in a better position to select the appropriate type of products to be applied in its building protection works projects, and more accurately assess their cost and the quantity required, which would facilitate the Group in its preparation of realistic and competitive quotation.
2) An established operating history and proven track record as a provider of building protection solutions, which enables the Group to maintain a stable relationship with its customers
The Group has over 30 years of operating history in the building protection industry in Hong Kong. During the Track Record Period, it completed over 80 building protection works projects; and on the other hand, supplied its own-brand building protection products and acted as the distributor of over 400 building protection products in nine brands, which together have enabled it to provide integrated building protection solutions to its customers and to maintain a stable relationship with its customers.
3) Offering an extensive brand portfolio of building protection products and maintaining a stable relationship with its building protection products suppliers and subcontractors
The extensive brand portfolio of building protection products enables the Group to maintain its position as a provider of building protection products in Hong Kong and Macau. It also gives the Group a greater flexibility in selecting suitable building protection products for undertaking building protection works in different buildings and developments.
4) A dedicated management team with extensive industry experience
The Group’s senior management team members generally have over 20 years of experience in the building protection industry or construction industry. Its management team’s extensive industry experience and knowledge will enable the Group to formulate competitive quotations, manage and implement its projects effectively, and control the costs of its projects.
1) Acquiring additional machinery and equipment for carrying out building protection works to cope with the Group’s business expansion
Having its own machinery and equipment enhances the Group’s competitive strength over other building protection work providers to the extent that, (i) it allows the Group to have more flexibility in allocating its resources in undertaking building protection work projects of varying scale and duration and cover different scale and scope of building protection works; and (ii) there is a higher chance that its quotations would be accepted by potential customers as the Group can ensure stable and sufficient machinery to carry out the works effectively and efficiently.
2) Expanding the Group’s workforce
In granting a contract, customer will assess, among other things, the availability of the Group’s manpower resources. Hence, to increase the Group’s chance in winning a contract by quotation, it is necessary for it to enhance its competitiveness by expanding its workforce.
3) Strengthening its financial position to pay for the upfront cost of its projects
To commence a new project and in the course of carrying out the project, the Group generally has to incur substantial upfront costs in the early stage and working capital during the course of implementation of the project before such costs can be recovered from its customers after more than approximately three months. To ensure that the Group has sufficient cash to pay the upfront cost, it will review the allocation of the net proceeds for payment of upfront costs for its projects regularly.
4) Expanding the Group’s building protection product mix and continuing to develop its own-brand “DP ChemTech” and “DP” products
The Group plans to solidify its relationship with existing suppliers of building protection products, identify and introduce new brands and new products from its existing suppliers and new suppliers of building protection products. It also plans to enhance the market recognition of its own-brand “DP ChemTech” and “DP” products.
MEASURES ON COVID-19 OUTBREAK
The Group believes that the occurrence of the outbreak of COVID-19 has not resulted in any material adverse impact on the business operation and financial performance of the Group, as at 22 March 2020 (the Latest Practicable Date). There is no loss or cancellation of its contracts or purchase orders. None of the Group’s customers have, or have expressed their intention to delay, suspend or terminate the Group’s existing building protection projects or their purchase orders for the Group’s building protection products, or reduce their demand of the Group’s services and products. The Group has not experienced any instance of material labour shortage or suspension of works of its subcontractors in its building protection works projects.
To avoid shortage in supply of building protection products due to temporary closure of its suppliers’ production facilities, transportation restrictions or disruption of the supply chain of building protection products, the Group would obtain quotations from different suppliers and subcontractors and retain the quotations of the other suppliers/subcontractors for back-up purpose. As at 31 January 2020, the cash balance of the Group was approximately HK$49.7 million, and its Directors believe that the Group’s cash balance will be able to support the monthly cash demands for not less than 12 months assuming there is no redundant or pay cut to current staff.
