HONG KONG, Mar 29, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Blockpass is excited to announce that the long-standing association between Blockpass and cryptocurrency exchange Lykke will be strengthening.

Lykke's mission is to build a new ecosystem for the outdated finance industry by leveraging the power of the blockchain. As a cryptocurrency exchange, Lykke has drawn acclaim and attention with its incredible zero trading fees and tiny buy-sell spreads for high-frequency trading. Catering to all types of clients in B2C and B2B markets - retail, API, business and others - Lykke has been a key player in the cryptocurrency exchange scene since its Lykke Wallet Cryptocurrency Exchange was launched in 2015. With no trading fees, no crypto deposit fees or limits, no inactivity fee and a solid base of liquidity, Lykke has been going from strength to strength. The zero-fee policy even applies to trading with bots used for algorithmic trading. Through its marketplace, Lykke offers unique financial products and empowers both retail customers and financial institutions to invest with no intermediaries, low cost and ease of use.

Blockpass is a digital identity verification provider which provides a one-click compliance gateway to financial services and other regulated industries. Through Blockpass, users can create, store, and manage a data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services, token purchases and access to regulated industries. For businesses and merchants, Blockpass is a comprehensive KYC & AML SaaS that requires no integration and no setup cost. You can set up a service in minutes, test the service for free and start verifying and on-boarding users. Currently with more than 500,000 verified user identity profiles, Blockpass facilitates instant onboarding, and to date over 3,000 services have taken advantage of this opportunity to get access to users with reusable digital identity profiles.

"Our work with Lykke goes all the way back to 2017 when Lykke was one of the first exchanges to list PASS," said Adam Vaziri, Blockpass CEO. "We've been looking forward to developing our relationship for a while and we're excited to provide a more current pair listing for PASS at the same time."

"We listed PASS back in 2017, inspired by the potential of the company and its vision. Since the beginning, we recognized the importance of KYC and AML compliance foreseeing the adoption of blockchain technology by masses and institutions. Since then, Blockpass has created a whole KYC ecosystem. We are excited to see this progress and happy to continue our collaboration," said Richard Olsen, Lykke CEO.

Blockpass has grown significantly in size and use since its inception, both in the number and range of users and organizations it has partnered with and the scope of its work. Blockpass continues to develop its digital identity protocol with updates and additions to improve the compliance experience. The existential need for DeFi projects to be regulatory compliant and the recent integrations have led to a surge in interest for Blockpass' On-chain KYC(TM) solution which promises to change the way blockchains enable compliance. Through its recent work with Animoca Brands, Blockpass is developing the ability to provide KYC where the delivery of the verification result is provably sent and shown on a blockchain without sharing the underlying data. This represents a significant step towards the future Blockpass hopes to bring about where identity verification can be proved without revealing any personal information at all.

About Blockpass
Blockpass, the pioneer of On-chain KYC(TM), is a fast, fully comprehensive KYC & AML screening software-as-a-service for blockchains, Crypto, Defi and other regulated industries. With Blockpass, you get an unmatched set of benefits for any compliance service that includes pay-as-you-go, no setup cost, no integration necessary, free testing, immediate launch and at the lowest cost.

By integrating with Chainlink Network - a decentralized oracle solution - last year, Blockpass introduced the first On-chain KYC(TM) solution that will service many blockchains in the years to come. Additionally, Blockpass' partnership with Animoca Brands has demonstrated how verification and adherence to standards can be proved on a blockchain without revealing any underpinning data - a significant boon for verifying Animoca Brands' NFT prize winners and a huge step towards securing the ecosystem of the Metaverse. The Blockpass App is available from the App Store and Google Play.

Analogue Achieves Revenue and Net Profit Growth to HK$5,351 Million and HK$314 Million Respectively Despite Adverse Market

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

HONG KONG, Mar 25, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Analogue Holdings Limited ("Analogue" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, collectively the "Group") (stock code: 1977), a leading electrical and mechanical ("E&M") engineering service provider in Hong Kong, today announced its annual results for the year ended 31 December 2021 ("the Year" or "FY2021") with revenue and net profit growth, posting a solid performance amid the pandemic and global uncertainty.

Highlights
-- Total revenue reached HK$5,350.7 million, an increase of 10.8% compared with adjusted revenue in FY2020
-- Profit attributable to owners of the Company grew 4.3% year-on-year to HK$314.3 million
-- Revenue from maintenance services increased 7.2% to HK$945 million
-- High dividend payout ratio maintained at 50.2%

During the Year, the Group's total revenue increased by 4.4% year-on-year to HK$5,350.7 million, mainly driven by both Building Services and Environmental Engineering segments. After adjusting the revenue for FY2020 from Transel Elevator & Electric Inc. ("TEI"), which has been reported as an associate of the Group since August 2020, the Group's total revenue would have increased by 10.8% year-on-year. In particular, revenue from maintenance services, a source of recurring income, increased by 7.2% year-on-year to HK$945 million, accounting for an increased proportion to 17.7% of the total revenue. Gross profit amounted to HK$878.4 million, with gross profit margin at 16.4%. Profit attributable to owners of the Company grew by 4.3% year-on-year to HK$314.3 million, even in the absence of such wage subsidies as the Government's "Employment Support Scheme" in 2020, which is evidence that the Year is most encouraging.

The Board has proposed a second interim dividend of HK7.25 cents per share. Together with the first interim dividend of HK4.02 cents per share, the total dividend for the Year amounted to HK11.27 cents per share, representing a high dividend payout ratio of 50.2%.

The Group has drawn on its exceptional project execution capability to deliver on the order book throughout 2021. Contracts-in-hand reached approximately HK$11,309 million as at 31 December 2021. Tendering activities remained active during the reporting period, with a total of 1,676 tenders valued at over HK$1 million each.

Dr. Otto Poon Lok-to, Chairman of Analogue Holdings Limited, said, "In 2021, although the E&M engineering sector was less affected by COVID-19 when compared with other industries, we still faced various challenges, such as interruptions in tendering for public works projects, high material and labour costs, etc. At Analogue, we upheld our motto 'We commit, We perform, We deliver' while doubling efforts to overcome challenges, which included optimising all facets of operation. In terms of business mix, we intentionally increased the proportion of contributions from maintenance services to ensure a stable source of income. Regarding geographical expansion, we leveraged our successful track record in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China to establish footholds overseas. As an advocate of innovation, we continued to direct our efforts towards enriching business operations through applications of new technologies. Our strategies have resulted in increased revenue and profitability in FY2021 despite the testing environment."

With active project delivery throughout the Year, Building Services segment's contracts-in-hand reached HK$4,892 million as of 31 December 2021. As an early adopter of cutting-edge building technologies, the Group pioneered the first high-rise building in Hong Kong using the advanced Modular Integrated Construction ("MiC") method. This track record won it HK$150 million worth of MiC contracts in FY2021. In light of the surging demand for MiC, the Group has been expanding its Multi-trade Integrated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing ("MiMEP") facilities and developing its proprietary ATAL Building Services Prefabrication and Modularisation Construction Technology ("ABSPM") to further improve the speed, cost, safety, and quality of construction work. During the Year, the Group participated in the building services work for one of the biggest data centres and secured additional installations and maintenance projects from major data centre operators in Hong Kong. Other key projects secured include a major hospital term contract and seven residential projects worth approximately HK$800 million, as well as a major contract for a Hong Kong racehorse training facility located in Guangzhou.

Environmental Engineering segment's contracts-in-hand amounted to HK$4,977 million. During the Year, the Group won four term contracts for the Hong Kong Government's Water Supplies Department that brings citywide benefits, covering all waterwork installations throughout the territory, such as the maintenance of mechanical and electrical equipment, instrumentation equipment, water quality monitoring equipment and plants. In addition, the Group took part in the iconic project of the Hong Kong Government Drainage Services department to upgrade the existing sewage treatment works to become the effluent polishing plant in Yuen Long which has been upgraded to meet future development needs, including expanding the treatment capacity from 70,000m3/day to 150,000m3/day. The deployment of the most advanced sewage treatment technologies featuring green design and community provisions will create an exemplary community asset and a more sustainable Hong Kong. The Group also commenced the operation and maintenance works for the sewage treatment plants in San Wai and power stations in Castle Peak and Black Point during the Year.

Information, Communications and Building Technologies ("ICBT") segment's contracts-in-hand increased by 2.7% to HK$877 million during the Year. To contribute to the development of Hong Kong's "Smart City" and "Smart Economy" initiatives, the Group rolled out a number of ICBT projects, including its proprietary Internet of Things ("IoT") applications for Smart Washrooms, Retro-commissioning (RCx) of electrical and mechanical systems, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Monitoring, Indoor Positioning and Video Analytics, as well as its in-house developed Cloud-based AI Energy Management Platform during the Year. In particular, the AI Energy Management Platform, IoT applications and Video Analytics technology have been chosen by more than 20 shopping malls, while its Photovoltaic ("PV") systems will be installed in more than 100 schools and NGOs. Such continuous contributions to streamlining digital processes and applying them will ultimately benefit society and advance the Smart City development in line with the government's blueprint.

The Lifts and Escalators segment's contracts-in-hand amounted to HK$563 million. During the Year, Anlev Elevator Group ("Anlev"), the Group's global brand of lifts, escalators, and moving walkways, completed the installation of Hong Kong's first commercial puzzle-stacking automated parking system, which advances "Smart Mobility" in Hong Kong, with the form of flexible automated parking system (APS). Designed by Anlev, the APS leverages innovative technology to provide 30 to 100 percent more parking spaces within the same footprint to alleviate the shortage of parking space in Hong Kong, enhance traffic planning and bring greater convenience to motorists. Following the success of the first APS project, Anlev was awarded a further contract to provide an APS for the new government building in the Kai Tak Development Area. For overseas markets, the alliance with TEI, one of the largest independent lift and escalator companies in New York, effectively enhanced the Group's operational and technical capabilities, and widened its service offering to international customers. The Group's new market strategy is also evidenced by the establishment of its first lifts and escalators company in the United Kingdom.

"On the green initiatives front, I am pleased that the Group has become the first E&M engineering group in Hong Kong to obtain a Sustainable Finance Certification from the Construction Industry Council and achieve the Green Loan Pre-Issuance Stage Certificate under the Green and Sustainable Finance Certification Scheme launched by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, as well as issuing a green financing instrument that will go towards enhancing water and wastewater management. In continuing this green journey, we are actively collaborating with prominent universities to develop more green energy and innovative environmental solutions," added Dr Poon.

In 2022, despite the emergence of the fifth wave of COVID-19 in Hong Kong having hampered the pace of economic recovery, on-going significant investments in infrastructure, the "Smart City" initiatives, the rise of IoT, as well as the rapid development of the Greater Bay Area are expected to present tremendous opportunities to Analogue. The outlook remains positive for the Group, which has been able to focus on its well-established foundation and innovative culture to sustain the operation through the uncertainties.

Dr Poon concluded, "Good opportunities arise even amidst challenging times. With strong business fundamentals and a sound financial position, we are well-positioned to grasp the growth opportunities ahead. Apart from organic growth, we will continue our efforts in exploring M&A opportunities in different parts of the world to support our expansion plans, with priorities placed on companies that have synergistic effects. 2022 marks the 45th anniversary of the Group. Over the past decades, we have dealt with numerous challenges, and have grown stronger from such experiences. With our pioneering spirit, utmost determination, wealth of experience and solid foundation, we are confident in achieving our expansion plans and propelling Analogue to new heights."
