I would think everyone is looking forward to the upcoming results release in the next few weeks. Would like to share my thoughts on how ISDN is going to fare for 2021 1H. The estimation is probably on the high side compared to analysts covering the name but I am sticking to what my calculations show me.

The profit guidance has come in.

What we do know is that the profit guidance tends to be conservative in nature thus the actual earnings will likely be more than the guided amount.

“The Board of Directors (the “Board”) of ISDN wishes to inform the Company’s shareholders (the ‘‘Shareholders’’) and potential investors that, based on the latest available information and a preliminary review of the unaudited financial results, the Group is expected to record an increase in profit after tax of more than 50% for the six months ended 30 June 2021, as compared to the profit after tax for the six months ended 30 June 2020, which was driven by continued strong growth from ISDN’s core industrial automation business.”

Thanks for sharing your write up. Yes, I had opted for and submitted the scrip dividend form electronically.

Based on the co's announcement today(> 50% profit increase), the figure seems to be close to your estimation of $14m ! 

I do hope the eventual 1H profit figure announced excludes any recovery of debts(for issues stated in the FY2020 results) and is generated purely by the strength of its business.

The hydro plants shd be in operation this year(hopefully & finally) and start contributing another $3m+ yearly as estimated in your post #45.

Excerpts from AR2020 (emphasis mine) :
- concluded our business reorganisation project to pool our strongest engineering proficiencies to deliver a full suite of end-to-end solutions linking software to hardware for the wider Industrial 4.0 opportunities globally
- By building capabilities to serve both hardware and software, we are moving up the value chain and growing alongside customers on their Industry 4.0 journey.

Recapping AGM Q&A responses (emphasis mine) : 
- ISDN to benefit from the multi-year tailwind in semiconductor expansion in China
- US-China strategic competition benefits ISDN
- Ongoing shift towards advanced, heterogeneous IC manufacturing & packaging should benefit ISDN
- shifts in Industrial Automation create opportunity for more recurring revenue 
- Indoor farming automation opportunity

It does look like ISDN's earnings are poised for more good years ahead.

the three hydro plants should contribute 9-10m$ PAT/year once they turn online...
For FY2021, the first two plants if they turn online in August, should generate 3-4m$ profit.

Although somewhat disappointed by 2Q2021 performance given prior expectations built in from earlier releases, I am still hopeful ISDN is on track for sustainable earnings growth for its core bizness - working with an improved operating structure to capture a growing total addressable market. With its rich experience via a 10,000 customer base, it is really up to how much additional bizness ISDN will be able to capture during this "golden period" in the run-up to initiatives like "Made in China 2025". My earnings estimates for ISDN are on par with CIMB's forecast for the next 2 years, although mine is higher for Dec-FY23. At the same time, I am also inclined to think that NT, as private equity, wld have expected much higher returns from its investments(NT has been vested into ISDN for more than 2 years now). Although we can take reference of NT's track records in AEM and Grand Ventures, investors shd take note of the different business and structure of NT's involvement. 

Much as I am not as optimistic/enthusiastic for its hydro & disinfectant biznesses, I am heartened by the fact that NT is working closely with ISDN on M&A, hopefully moving fwd, future M&A will relate more to the core bizness*. Indeed, on pg34 of 1H2021 results announcement, a ISDN subsidiary has ventured into corporate training bizness, hopefully it is synergic to ISDN's software bizness.( https://www.isdnsoftware.com/ )

came across this video - I think ISDN's automation resides on the lower levels of the pyramid.

A set of stellar 3Q report. Lifting from the presentation.

“Profit before tax, profit after tax and profit to shareholders also recorded new all-time highs YTD. On a quarterly basis, ISDN delivered the most profitable quarter in its history.”

According to my own notes, what was particularly interesting to me was Keith(NT)'s comments - ISDN's diversified 10,000 customer base provides a glimpse into the possible upcoming trends, when they engage with ISDN on their automation requirements, e.g. new projects. I can't help but wonder that other than for financial reasons, NT's investment could be of a strategic intent as well, given that NT is very much in the technology space.

One of ISDN's strengths lies in its ability to listen to its customers' needs and it has the capabilities to then develop/customize solutions to meet their requirements(the diversified customer base probably contributes to the advantage). The new projects & life cycle maintenance/upgrade provide a stable source of revenue/income. However, this probably means that there is unlikely to be a rapid scale-up of profits (compared to for e.g. maybe Apple launching a new blockbuster pdt), also considering that an integrated solution provider does not seem to be able to command a high margin and are somewhat labour intensive(i.e. you need a pool of engineers to design and implement).

However, as long as technological upgrade is in high demand, particularly in China, ISDN's revenue/earnings wld likely continue to grow in the foreseeable future. My wish list would be an aggressive sales force to capitalize on this "golden period" of the "Made In China 2025" policy so that we don't have to wait too long to see 15,000 customers (I first noticed the mention of 10,000 in AR2018 - ".... our diversified base of more than 10,000 corporate customers ...."). One of the tell-tale signs of the business demand is the planning for a new building(see results briefing notes below). At the same time, hopefully, ISDN is also able to increase its contributions from other Asian markets(6 hr flight zone radius, except for Japan/Korea where boss feels ISDN does not have the muscle to "fight" there).

I find one of the better website to understd automation for layman is : https://www.boschrexroth.com/en/xc/indus...tartpage-4 . Hope one day ISDN will have a similar website with interactive features, etc.
