Business Overview

The Group is a Hong
Kong-based building protection solution provider and its solutions integrate
the provision of building protection works with a focus on waterproofing works;
and the supply of building protection products. According to the Frost &
Sullivan Report, it ranked second in the building protection work market in
Hong Kong with a market share of approximately 3.0% in terms of revenue in
FY2019.

The Group’s building
protection works were carried out with the building protection products sourced
and procured by it, and in various types of buildings in both public and
private sectors such as residential buildings, commercial buildings and
community facilities. The building protection products supplied by the Group
can be broadly categorised into waterproofing products, tiling products and
flooring and other products. As at 22 March 2020 (the Latest Practicable Date),
it was the distributor of nine brands covering more than 400 building
protection products, which were sourced from Independent Third Party brand
owners and manufacturers from Germany, Switzerland and the United States. Since
2011, the Group also supplied its own-brand “DP ChemTech” and “DP” products,
which are sourced from selected Independent Third Party suppliers from
different jurisdictions such as PRC, Taiwan and Singapore.

Competitive Strengths

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.

BUSINESS STRATEGIES

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.
