The current CEO of TechCreate, Mr Lim Heng Hai, will be appointed as the Group CEO of TechCreate Group, while the current CEO of Diginius, Mr Ronald Vong, will be designated as the Managing Partner of TechCreate Group.
Strategic Rationale - Powering the Future of Payments in Asia
According to a Mckinsey report issued on November 2020, Asia has outpaced all other regions in terms of payments-revenue growth over the past several years. The region is also the largest contributor to global payments revenue, generating over US$900 billion in 2019, nearly half the global total. The Asia's payments industry is expected to return to mid-to-high single-digit growth rates and, by 2022 or 2023, generating more than US$1 trillion in annual revenue.
Notably, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated Asia's payments megatrends and chief among these was the rapidly expanding number of connected and digitally active consumers, with booming e-commerce markets reinforcing the need for digital solutions. The competitive landscape was simultaneously heating up, with the entry of formidable new players--including telecommunications firms, fintechs, "big techs," and other conglomerates--spurring incumbents to step up their own innovation efforts.
Meanwhile, regulators sought to standardise infrastructure while encouraging competition, fostering the introduction of real-time payments, digital know your customer (KYC), and various local payment schemes.
With a focus on powering the future of payments in Asia, TechCreate Group aims to provide cutting-edge innovation and technology capability to enhance value creation for its customers as follows:
- Expanded business scale with integrated solutions: Having the capabilities to provide more comprehensive and integrated technology solutions related to payment and digitalisation platforms to serve new and existing customers across Asia.
- Strong potential to create new customer value propositions: Ability to broaden its reach and serve diverse customer segments with differentiated requirements and objectives, thereby creating the opportunity and potential to develop proprietary insights and innovative solutions that are aligned with the new trends of payments and digitalisation in Asia.
Commenting on the merger, Mr Lim Heng Hai, Group CEO of TechCreate Group, said, "This is a transformational transaction for both companies, creating an enlarged company with end-to-end digital payment offerings in high-growth verticals as economies in Asia accelerate their digitisation roadmap.
With our combined capabilities, it amplifies our mission be a leading innovative, customer-centric and eco-friendly technology solution provider in Asia."
Mr Ronald Vong, Managing Partner of TechCreate Group, added, "We are confident that the strengths of the combined company will enable meaningful growth to stakeholders, delivering new value and insights to better serve our markets and customers.
At the same time, it can accelerate our growth and more effectively capitalise on our pipeline and broader market opportunities within the banking and financial industries in Asia."

BEIJING, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - The OKLink team released the Global Crypto Market 2022/Q1 report on April 10, which contains a thorough review on the market performance of various public blockchain as well as in-depth discussion of popular fields and topics in the first quarter.
OKLink: Preparing for a prosperous multi-chain era as Ethereum 2.0 is drawing near. [OKLink Global Crypto 2002/Q1 Report]
According to OKLink data, MicroStrategy is by far the largest holder of bitcoin amongst overseas listed companies. It has been hoarding bitcoin since August 2020 and held a total of $5.8 billion worth of 129,218 BTC by the end of the first quarter of 2022, an amount even more than the market capitalization of MicroStrategy itself and three times the position that a certain automobile company held.
For now, Ethereum ecosystem has the most dynamic and viable players of all public blockchains, yet its high Gas fee and network congestion has always been denounced, which results in its decision on moving to 2.0 stage in order to thoroughly solve the congestion on-chain and improve the scalability of the Ethereum blockchain.
Here the core change is the transformation from PoW algorithm to PoS algorithm. And 2022 is a crucial year for Ethereum's plan on 2.0 phase, which could set the stage for Ethereum to become a world-class financial settlement layer and DApp infrastructure.
Staking of ETH is a key step in Ethereum's transition to 2.0. According to OKLink data, more than 10 million ETH have been staked to ETH 2.0 contract. To be more precisely, as of March 31, ETH 2.0 contract has received a total of 10,989,186 ETH, which accounts for 9.3% of total ETH in circulation. This could be a sign that we may soon see an Ethereum that has greatly improved in scalability, security and sustainability.
In addition, several EVM (the core underlying component of Ethereum) based ecology such as Polygon and Fantom rose up to popularity as they promise a lower cost compared to Ethereum
OKLink emphasized in the report that Non-EVM based public blockchains would provide new options for users to move their assets by adding EVM compatibility; besides, this would bring more composability to the global blockchain ecology and accelerate the prosperity of multi-chain era by integrating widely accepted standards.
With the rapid development of global blockchain and crypto market, the processing and analysis of large number of diverse data on blockchains may help in grasping the trend of the crypto market. In this regard, based on self-developed technology platform and rich experience in blockchain data processing and analysis, OKLink has launched a series of data reports reflecting the development of blockchain and crypto industry, and will continue providing support for the development and prosperity of the blockchain industry.

KLANG, Malaysia, Apr 8, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - LTKM Berhad (LTKM), a leading chicken egg producer, today announced a composite proposal, chiefly to divest the Company's existing business and venture into the business of providing of electronic manufacturing services (EMS) while at the same time, rectify its non-compliance with the public spread requirement of its shares under the listing requirements of Bursa Securities Malaysia Berhad.

Bhd. [L-R]
Executive Chairman of LTKM, Datuk Tan Kok said, "At its core, the proposals seek to reward our shareholders from the proceeds of the disposal of the Company's existing poultry business while at the same time, allow them to continue participating in the new EMS business following the proposals."
"The proposed disposal comes amid the challenging operating landscape for the poultry industry brought on by overcapacity, low average selling price of eggs, high raw material prices, difficulty in controlling disease outbreaks in the farms and acute labour shortage. In relation to these challenges, we have also incurred losses in the recent financial years ended 31 March 2020 to 2021 and for the nine-month period ended 31 December 2021. This has affected our ability to pay dividends too."
"Concurrent with the proposed disposals, we believe the proposed acquisition of the EMS business is an opportunity to create value for our shareholders through a business that is viable and profitable."
Briefly, the proposals comprise the following inter-conditional steps:
1. Proposed disposal of LTKM's existing business to Ladang Ternakan Kelang Sdn Bhd (LTKSB) for a total cash disposal consideration of RM158.83 million. LTKSB, which holds 71.6% of the equity interest in LTKM, is also the holding company of LTKM;
2. Proposed special dividend and capital repayment of RM1.1098 per LTKM share totalling RM158.83 million on an entitlement date to be determined;
3. Proposed consolidation of two existing LTKM shares into one LTKM share following the proposed special dividend and capital repayment;
4. Proposed acquisition by LTKM, of 100.0% equity interest in Local Assembly Sdn Bhd (Local Assembly) from Chai Voon Sun, Gurmakh Singh a/l Ajmer Singh, Wee Thian Song, Divine Inventions Sdn Bhd and Proven Venture Sdn Bhd (Vendors) for RM336.00 million to be satisfied through cash of RM100.00 million and the issuance of 393,333,333 new LTKM shares at an issue price of RM0.60 each;
5. Proposed restricted issue of 230.00 million new LTKM shares at an indicative issue price of RM0.60 each, representing 33.1% of the enlarged share capital of LTKM after the proposals to investors to be identified;
6. Proposed exemption to the vendors and persons acting in concert from the obligation to undertake a mandatory take-over offer to acquire the remaining LTKM shares not already owned by them upon completion of the proposed acquisition; and
7. Proposed change of name to "LA Technology Berhad" from "LTKM Berhad".
The proposed acquisition will result in a significant change in LTKM's business direction from a producer of chicken eggs to becoming an EMS provider. Local Assembly, an EMS provider, will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of LTKM while the vendors of Local Assembly will become LTKM's controlling shareholders with a 56.6% equity interest in the Company following the proposed acquisition and proposed restricted issue. By virtue of his shareholding in Divine Inventions, Datuk Seri Chiau Beng Teik, the Executive Chairman of Chin Hin Group Berhad, will become a major shareholder of LTKM.
Under the proposed acquisition, the vendors have provided a profit guarantee for Local Assembly of a minimum profit after tax (PAT) of RM28.00 million for the financial year ending 31 December 2022 or not less than an aggregate of RM50.00 million PAT for both financial years ending 31 December 2022 and 2023. Based on the guaranteed PAT of RM28.00 million for the financial year ending 31 December 2022, the purchase consideration represents a price to earnings multiple of 12 times.
For Chai Voon Sun, co-founder and Managing Director of Local Assembly, the listing of Local Assembly via LTKM means a realisation of 2 decades of hardwork for him and his co-founders and a step forward in the company's journey of growth and expansion. "This transaction is a major milestone for Local Assembly. We look forward to the next phase of our corporate journey as a listed entity, which will further accelerate our growth as an EMS player, allow us to expand our customer base and product offerings and pursue more opportunities" he adds.
Local Assembly, which started operations in 2000, is a manufacturer of electronic, electrical and plastic injection moulded components, and sub-contract assembler of electrical appliances and equipment. Its principal markets are Malaysia and Singapore. For the financial year ended 31 December 2022, Local Assembly achieved PAT of RM20.06 million on the back of a revenue of RM116.35 million.
The application for the proposals is expected to be submitted to the relevant authorities by the second quarter of 2022. Subject to approvals from relevant parties including Securities Commission, Bursa Securities Malaysia Berhad as well as shareholders of LTKM, the proposals are expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.
M & A Securities Sdn Bhd is Adviser to LTKM for the proposals.

Malang, East Java, Indonesia, Apr 4, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - An agricultural start-up initiated by three students from Malang's Brawijaya University whose app, Chickin, has been downloaded by a thousand farmers across Indonesia, has made the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. According to the founders, the application uses Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance the productivity of farmers by up to 25 percent.

Chickin, hatched at UB/U.Brawijaya by founders Ashab, Tubagus and Ahmad (Chicken.ID Website / Malang, Indonesia)
The app was developed by agrotechnology student Ashab Alkahfi, who is serving as the President of Chickin, Tubagus Syailendra from international relations, who is serving as CEO/Chief Executive Officer, and Ahmad Syaifullah from information systems, serving as the CTO/Chief Technology Officer.
"Based on initial research, we developed the app in Klaten, Central Java. We built poultry coops as farmers and began our poultry business where we found a number of challenges faced by local farmers. From there, we tried to solve these challenges by means of technology," Alkahfi explained.
The application allows farmers to control the micro-climate inside chicken coops from a distance. Through the technology, farmers can input data, including daily, sales, and production data, to enhance performance and make it more measurable and at the same time, minimize risks through preventive measures.
The app also offers a number of features for management of the poultry farm, including data and IoT configuration adaptable to climate, temperature and humidity, as well as recording the age of each poultry. Aside from partnering with 14 poultry farms, Chickin has established cooperation with 100 poultry suppliers in the food industry.
Alkahfi said he hopes the app will bring ease to farmers and have a positive impact on them, adding that the farming modernization technology was developed free of charge under Brawijaya University's Entrepreneur Incubator.
Chickin has seen 22-fold growth in the last 10 months and closed a funding round of Rp35 billion with three global investors. The company is targeting to increase revenue to Rp500 billion by the end of 2022.
So far, Chickin Indonesia is not only assiting one thousand farmers across the nation, but the company is committed to developing the technology to minimize the use of antibiotics for organic chicken through coop micro-climate control and providing training to poultry farmers free of charge to modernize Indonesian poultry farms.

London, UK, Apr 1, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cylum Finance, a DeFi 3.0 platform, has launched the highest APY staking reward in the crypto industry. Over the years, crypto investors and traders have staked their assets for relatively average returns. Although these investors earned interest on their staked crypto assets, there is huge room for improvement. Offering an increase in APY for staked assets will undoubtedly incentive more investors to enter the market.
The mission of the Cylum project is to give crypto investors a more profitable reason to stake their assets on its platform.
Cylum Highest APY Reward
Cylum offers up to 395,677% APY within the first year for investors who hold the $CYM token. Since the history of crypto staking, no project has offered investors such high returns on their investment. The unique smart contract that powers Cylum's APY leverages compound interest in its reward system. As a result, all investors earn rewards every minute of the day with Cylum. The team plans to increase the earnings of investors with the launch of the mainnet offering. The mainnet also has a multi-chain decentralized application (Dapp) developed to offer users more utility within the ecosystem.
Cylum Unique Features & Uses
Auto-Staking & Compounding
In most existing DeFi projects, token holders have to stake their crypto assets manually. With Cylum's auto-staking and compounding, it is entirely different. Every process is automated and designed to favor investors. By purchasing and holding these tokens, investors earn active rewards directly to their respective wallets.
After the annual compound interest of 395,677% within the first year, the APY will begin to decrease.
To reduce the number of $CYM in total supply and drive up the value of each token, the team is looking to make $CYM a deflationary token. With auto-burn, the team will make the token more valuable as a result of the decrease in supply and increased demand. The auto-burn feature is an algorithm created to automatically eliminate 2% of the $CYM token total supply once it is launched.
About Cylum Finance
Cylum is a DeFi 3.0 project launched to revolutionize crypto staking and reward system. Skilled developers created it with unique code. The project operates an amazing set of mechanics that ensures the protocol remains sustainable. The team also incorporated additional unique features that confer a competitive advantage on the project. Crypto staking has become one of the top ways investors make money from the market. A great platform like Cylum is essential to attracting more players to this sector of the crypto market.
The Cylum protocol serves as a launchpad for metaverse projects deployed on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). In addition, its cylinder insurance fund ensures it is low risk with high rewards for investors.
HONG KONG, Mar 30, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Solargiga Energy Holdings Limited ("Solargiga" or the "Group"; HKEX: 757), a leading vertically integrated enterprise that manufactures monocrystalline photovoltaic products for generating solar energy in the PRC, announced today its annual results and that it turned around to profit for the year ended 31 December 2021.
Driven by increase in sales of its major products, photovoltaic modules and monocrystalline silicon wafers, plus the climb in average selling price of silicon wafers, the Group's revenue increased by 17.4% to RMB7,105.0 million, with total external shipment volume up 7.8% year-on-year. It achieved a significant turnaround with profit attributable to owners of the parent at approximately RMB193.2 million when compared with a loss recorded last year, mainly due to substantial increase in its high-efficiency production capacity and economies of scale, which helped widen its overall gross profit margin.
During the year under review, as a result of the increase in sales of monocrystalline solar wafers which boast a higher profit margin, the Group's gross profit rose by 50.1% to RMB879.1 million, with gross profit margin improved to 12.4%. As such, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation ("EBITDA") of the Group surged by 189.7% to RMB799.7 million
In 2021, the Group continued to invest in and upgrade existing production capacity which, together with the economies of scale reaped, saw its operating profit increase significantly, with net cash flows from operating activities up by a substantial 82.8% to RMB1,030.4 million in 2021 (2020: RMB563.5 million).
Silicon ingots and wafers business
During the year under review, since monocrystalline products have advantages over multicrystalline products in photovoltaic power generation, the market share of monocrystalline products continued to increase rapidly. With most of the Group's monocrystalline silicon ingot products reserved for internal use, the external shipment volume of them was 414.4 MW (2020: 710.8 MW), whereas that of monocrystalline silicon wafers increased significantly to 4,087.0 MW (2020: 3,145.8MW), an over 30% climb against the previous year.
Apart from traditional monocrystalline P-type products, the Group also manufactures monocrystalline N-type products with higher conversion efficiencies. As TOPCON cells and heterojunction HJT cells with monocrystalline N-type silicon wafer base are expected to become the mainstream next-generation photovoltaic cells, to capture that trend, the Group managed to accomplish technical breakthrough and product marketisation of monocrystalline N-type silicon ingot and has started supplying N-type silicon ingots and wafers to domestic and foreign customers.
The Group's production base for monocrystalline silicon ingot and monocrystalline silicon wafer in Qujing, Yunnan, the PRC, started mass production during the year. As the facility enjoys various local government preferential investment policies, and more importantly, the decrease in local electricity cost, being the major manufacturing cost of ingot-pulling, of more than 50% compared to the major production base in Jinzhou, Liaoning. That can help improve the Group's overall gross profit margin. Therefore, the Group has continued to expand the production capacity there to meet the rapid growth of customer demand. As at year end, the annual production capacity of monocrystalline silicon ingots and monocrystalline silicon wafers of the facility were 4.3 GW and 2.5 GW respectively.
To concentrate resources on developing more niche products, the Group adjusted its operating strategy, ceasing manufacturing solar cells last year and moved its focus onto upstream monocrystalline silicon wafers (ingot) and downstream modules as its two major products.
During the year, the Group continued to expand module production capacity in Yancheng, Jiangsu, to meet the needs of module customers and further strengthen economies of scale. As at year end, the module production capacity of Yancheng, Jiangsu reached 5.4 GW, out of the 7.2 GW total of the Group. The production base also enjoys various local government preferential investment policies, plus the Group can take advantage of significantly lowering the investment in capital expenditure by renting plant buildings. Moreover, the area around the Yangtze River Delta is where raw and auxiliary materials that the Group needs agglomerate, meaning the Group has advantage in procurement.
Excellent product quality and price competitiveness allow the Group to secure stable and sizeable customers. Modules were mainly sold externally to large state-owned enterprises and international multinational enterprises, such as State Power Investment Corporation ("SPIC"), SHARP Corporation ("SHARP"), Xinyi Glass Holdings Limited and Xinyi Solar Group and CGN New Energy Holdings Co., Ltd., etc. The Group has been SHARP's largest processing service partner for photovoltaic module for nine consecutive years and has been cooperating in continually expanding module sales to foreign customers.
The Group embraces the "one base, two wings" strategic layout, with its base in Jinzhou, Liaoning, and Qujing in Yunnan and Yancheng in Jiangsu as its two wings. The layout has given it low-cost and high-efficiency productivity advantages and become one of the driving forces for the gross profit margins growth of its monocrystalline silicon ingots and silicon wafers. It expects that, by the end of 2022, the annual production capacity of monocrystalline silicon ingot and silicon wafers in Qujing, Yunnan will be increased to 6.0 GW and 3.6 GW, representing 81% and 49% of the Group's total annual production capacity of the products, respectively. On top of boosting the Group's gross profit margin, the layout will also enable the Group to fully unleash its technological advantages and achieve progress.
Regarding module production capacity, by the end of 2022, the annual production capacity of the plant in Yancheng, Jiangsu will increase to 6.4 GW, taking the Group's overall annual module production capacity to 8.2 GW.
In addition, the Group has been actively expanding the end-user power plants construction and application business, which has not only driven sales of module products from bottom-up, but also it will spread the profit of construction and operation of photovoltaic system businesses, helping improve the Group's overall profitability. Apart from having internal photovoltaic power plant system established and run by its wholly owned subsidiaries, the Group also plans to form joint ventures with companies from other industries to develop BAPV and BIPV business.
Mr Tan Wenhua, Chairman of Solargiga, said, "In 2022, newly installed photovoltaic power generation capacity is expected to continue to grow rapidly worldwide. That plus supportive government policies will see medium- and long-term demand for photovoltaic products climb robustly in the PRC and the global market. Marketisation will continue for photovoltaic products and the industry will move away from policy subsidies towards self-sustainable development. Technological progress will help reduce power generation cost conducive to achieving grid parity, and in turn will draw explosive demand growth.
"With proven business strategy in place, we are well prepared to apply our existing advantages to capture the tremendous opportunities in the photovoltaic industry in the good times ahead, and also help China achieve her 'carbon neutrality' goal by 2060 and contribute to sustainable development of the world."
