Prestariang gets RM28m govt job      
  
KUALA LUMPUR: Prestariang Bhd has secured a RM28 million contract from the Ministry of Higher Education to implement the 1Citizen Certification provide “IC Citizen” training and certification in all public and selected private higher learning institutions.

It said on Monday, Aug 22 that its wholly owned unit Prestariang Systems Sdn Bhd had accepted the letter of award from the Ministry for the contract.

The company said the program was expected to run for 24 months from its official start date.

It said the program would cater to 80,000 students from 20 identified public institutes of higher learning including universities, polytechnics and community colleges in Malaysia, as well as selected private institutes of higher learning.

“The IC Citizen Certification is Prestariang’s home-grown certification; the first of its kind in the world that is specially developed and designed to produce digitally literate and responsible citizens.

“Launched in 2010 for the global market, IC Citizen is being marketed via partnership with Certiport from US to a network of approximately 10,000 centres in 152 countries.

Prestariang chief executive officer Dr Abu Hasan Ismail said the home-grown program would contribute positively to the company’s order book for the next two years on top of the foreign revenue it will realise via partnership with its international partners.

“We add value to the existing academic courses by equipping students with the skills and knowledge that are normally not taught in their field of study. It is very important to have this certification because it signifies that they have the knowledge, understanding on appropriate behaviours when they are online.

“We firmly believe that this new program will take flight and become our next stepping stone to success,” he said.

Prestariang is an ICT service and education training provider focusing on ICT training and certification, as well as software licence distribution and management.

Among its projects are the 3P Programme, and the MUSE Programme.

Prestariang rises and shines like a star      
  
Prestariang Bhd
(Sept 29, 53.5 sen)
Initiating coverage with a buy rating at 50 sen with a fair value of 92 sen: Prestariang is involved in the provision of information and communications technology (ICT) services focusing on professional training and certification, as well as the distribution and management of software licences. We like the company’s sturdy order book of close to RM280 million, its established relationship with key partner Microsoft, innovative in-house developed products and its appealing valuation backed by a dividend yield of more than 10% in the next two years.  

We see strength in Prestariang’s two core businesses given their synergy and complementary characteristics, whereby ICT training and certification is typically provided together with the licensing of the software used in its training and certification. While it can be argued that Prestariang is a technology player, we see greater potential in its professional training and certification business, which pits it closer to education players such as SEGi, Masterskill and HELP.  

Prestariang has to date secured an order book of close to RM280 million, with projects spanning one to four years up to 2015. Its anchor projects include the RM80 million industry-based certification programme, which received the nod earlier for renewal for another four years and its RM60 million MUSE programme through which it provides and maintains software licences for all public higher education institutions in Malaysia.

Its close rapport with valued partners such as Microsoft, Oracle, IBM and Autodesk, helped sustain profitability margins. Of note, Prestariang has established close ties with Microsoft, which has been its single most important partner for the last eight years for provision of software and training certification. Going forward, we see more upside potential for the group’s profit margins going into FY12, with a target of 36% at the net level at the close of the year on greater economies of scale.

Prestariang also focuses on R&D activities to develop new programmes in-house by working with partners in related fields. We like its R&D-centric focus as creating its own intellectual properties could help to drive up margins as well as provide a launching pad for its regional expansion going forward.

Given its  robust balance sheet with minimal capex requirements apart from R&D expenditure, management has set a dividend policy of up to 50% for the next three years. For our forecast earnings, this translates into a lucrative dividend yield of more than 10% for both FY11 and FY12 given the recent weakness in share price, which has retraced by >44% since going public in late July this year. — OSK Research, Sept 29

The collaboration will provide Prestariang with opportunities for business growth, as well as to diversify any over dependency in Malaysia.

This is to keep up with technological and software advances, especially in tandem with our technology and software vendor partners.

新股介绍。

子龙昨天突击成功。【个人操作,没有买卖建议】

大部分股,如MBSB,在公布强劲的业绩后,即使盈利涨五百多%,都敌不过套利回调的卖压。

此股,目前,还承受的住。

MACD - 打开

STOCHASTIC虽然超买,去到80,不过只要MACD一天敝大口,STOCHASTIC就让它高空走钢线吧。

近期大量,只要量持续来,还挺的住。

3MA及5MA都还好。
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
公司的一些基本资料,子龙是收集在自己的部落格,过后就只针对找卖点或卖点。

以下是几个月前做的一些资料。

毕达良PRESBHD

上市:27/7/2011

业务:软件执照分销和管理(60.6%),资讯通信科技培训(39.4%)

面值:RM 0.10

资本:RM 22m

每股资产:RM 0.1818

PE:10.7

EPS:-

DY:-

PB:4

目前趋势:

没有出现过买入点。

不过,最近的趋势看来,好像要来了。

稍等。【那是我几个月前的备注,现在买点来了

透视:

正在拟定一套职业沟通测试方法,从而设立全球标杆,同时作为业者在聘请雇员时的能力证明。

核心业务是为终身学习人生提供培训和授予证书,专经营资讯通信科技(ICT)培训和软件执照分销。

今年获得教育部颁发一份为期3年,总值RM8.05m的合约,负责为区域学术部门、师训学院和教育部属下其他机构提供和管理微软软件执照。

已经获得许多人士、机构和政府机关颁发多份数额颇高的中、长期合约。

于2010年11月向全球推介自家开发的培训和证书课程“IC Citizen"。

展望:

有点奇怪,微软软件执照也须要管理的吗?

好像有一点特地的。

不是吗?

有政府照顾,还怕什么?【只要现任政府一天还没倒】

全年淨利寫新高‧畢達良前景亮麗
熱股評析 2012-02-20 19:05

(吉隆坡20日訊)畢達良(PRESBHD,5204,主板貿服組)第四季淨利1千零60萬令吉,全年淨利按年倍增至新高的3千360萬令吉,基於教育培訓與驗證組的賺益與淨利將進一步擴大,前景會更亮麗。

僑豐研究調高2012與2013財政年每股盈利6.5%與10.4%,預測淨利各達4千零60萬和4千540萬令吉。

第四季每股派息4仙,全年股息8仙,預料未來兩年維持50%派息政策,2012與2013財政年每股派息達9.2仙與10.3仙。

第四季淨利按季微增4.8%至1千零60萬令吉,主要是達80萬令吉的稅務遺失,營業額3千260萬令吉。

全年營業額1億1千180萬令吉,主要受軟件執照經銷與管理組所激勵,貢獻超過前3季。營運盈利增長至3千490萬令吉,主要是賺益增長至31.3%。在教育培訓機構中,這是最高的賺益,因為其資產輕盈;賺益折舊開銷達130萬令吉。

管理層預測教育培訓與驗證組,未來兩年將作更卓越貢獻。該公司為一家ITC服務公司,專注於專業培訓與驗證,伙伴為微軟、國際商業機器公司(IBM)與甲骨文(Oracle)等。

僑豐看好畢達良強勁成長,預測2012財政年每股派息9.2仙,週息率為10%,維持“買進”評級,目標價1令吉48仙。(星洲日報/財經)

必斯達亮財測上調


必斯達亮(PRESBHD,5204,主板貿服股)是一家資訊與通訊科技(ICT)培訓和認證,以及軟件執照分銷及管理為核心業務的企業。

該公司在2003年開始投入運作,並提供終身學習者培訓及認證,讓他們具有專業人士的資格。

必斯達亮在剛公佈的2011財政年業績表現中,營業額達1億1180萬令吉,主要由軟件執照分銷及管理業務貢獻,占超過總營業額的3/4。

同時,該公司的扣除利息和稅項前之盈利(EBIT)提升至3490萬令吉,其中賺幅取得31.3%的成長。這賺幅成長率是同行內最高的水平,因為必斯達亮屬輕資產經營模式,其折舊費用僅為130萬令吉。

此外,該公司2011財政年達3360萬令吉的核心盈利,符合分析員的預測。

按季比較,必斯達亮2011財政年末季營業額表現平平,達3260萬令吉;至於扣除利息和稅項前之盈利則在較低行政費用貢獻下,取得11.9%的成長,至1150萬令吉。

同時,該公司2011財政年末季淨利按季收窄4.8%,至1060萬令吉,這是因為須繳付80萬令吉的稅務所致。

除此之外,必斯達亮宣佈派發每股4仙的終期股息,這促使該公司在2011財政年一共派發每股8仙的股息,相等於8.7%的週息率,這是根據該股於2月15日的0.92令吉閉市價計算所得。

必斯達亮的成長,符合與分析員的預期,這是基於分析員早前已指出該公司不須太多的資本開銷(capex),同時可持續賺取強勁的現金。

因此,分析員維持必斯達亮在未來兩年50%派息政策的預測,並預計該公司在2012和2013財政年將派發每股9.2仙及10.3仙的股息。

該公司管理層在業績匯報會上指出,必斯達亮的賺幅可從培訓及認證業務,獲取進一步的成長。

這也促使分析員調整對該股的預測,相信這些業務將有較高的盈利貢獻,並具有較高的賺幅。同時,也提升該股2012及2013財政年的每股盈利預測,分別6.5%及10.4%。

分析員看好股價表現

分析員看好該股的原因,還包括2011財政年末季強勁的業績表現,以及該股2012財政年具吸引力的每股9.2仙股息預測,相等於10%的週息率。

此外,分析員相信該股股價企穩0.92令吉後,有望進一步攀升至新高水平。因此,分析員維持該股「買進」評級,並上調合理價格至1.48令吉,而2012財政年本益比維持在8倍的水平。

另外,必斯達亮管理層於早前,為公司設下在2012財政年取得4000萬令吉淨利的目標。

這意味著該公司將須取得按年19%的成長。公司將通過各種內部開發解決方案,獲取較好的賺幅。

同時,必斯達亮早前與兩個政府部門簽署協議,以實施1CITIZEN計劃,以推廣適當使用現有的科技。

根據該公司早前發出的文告,這項由大馬通訊文化部頒發總值1400萬令吉的1CITIZEN計劃為期2年;從2012年1月1日開始至12月31日,要讓4萬名參與者能夠從中學習網絡運用。

必斯達亮首席執行員阿布哈山博士相信,這項合約將對其2012年營業額成長及未來兩年訂單,帶來重大貢獻。

此外,必斯達亮逐漸將其未來的盈利來源,轉移至沒有明顯週期變化的業務,以緩衝培訓業務淡季收入相應減少帶來的影響。

該公司在2011財政年次季面臨慘淡的淨利表現,僅達170萬令吉,因洽逢ICT培訓和認證業務的淡季所致,促使股價下跌約20%。

分析員預計該公司未來盈利的可見度會較高,因此可吸引偏向低風險的投資者。

Up close and personal with Dr Abu Hasan Ismail
By LIZ LEE
lizlee@thestar.com.my




From an academician to an entrepreneur, he has made every step count and remains true to his beliefs, passion and principles.

PRESTARIANG Bhd chief executive officer Dr Abu Hasan Ismail would come across as a visionary teacher if one were to share a conversation with him about work and life.

Abu, whom his staff call “Doc”, has an easy demeanour about him that is engaging, reflecting the familial values he champions.

He is a risk taker who saw the potential in information and communication technology (ICT) at the start of the millennium and made something out of the then relatively unchartered waters.

However, not many understood his vision when he started the ICT service and education trading company Prestariang in 2003.

“It was a new idea and when you tell people about it, they always ask for an equivalent company to benchmark but if there is already a company like Prestariang, why am I doing this at all?” he says with a big laugh.

Career paths

He had a penchant for ICT but this was not his first calling in life. In his world that had buzz words such as clicks and hits when he started the company in 2003, his roots were in something the information age was trying to replace bricks and mortar.

He wanted to design buildings and pursued a degree in architecture at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Displaying an affinity at the drawing board, he then went on to finish his course in 1986 at University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

“Everyone thought that I was going to become a successful architect but sometimes what you do in school and what you'll like to do out of school are two different things. But the learning experience you get attending classes is still important,” he says.

Despite stellar grades, he found the “closed-door profession” not his cup of tea and turned to ICT which intrigued him because everyone was involved in communication tecnology in some way.

He went on to pursue a Masters degree in 1988 and PhD in ICT in 1996 at University of Sheffield.

He returned to Malaysia and taught architecture at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia for two months before deciding to listen to his inner voice .

His key reason for the big career leap is his belief that “everyone needs to be truthful to themselves”.

“Everyone has something that drives them. There is no point trying to do something you have no passion for because it will be very difficult to succeed,” he says. He sought opportunities in ICT and education and that journey took him to Cyberjaya.

Abu was fortunate to become one of the founding members of the Multimedia University in 1997 and even lectured there under the Faculty of Creative Multimedia for three years until his first batch of students graduated.

He was the first dean at the faculty that year and interestingly, he was the one who changed the name of the faculty.

“I coined the term creative multimedia' to rename the faculty because no one understood what its old name Faculty of Media Arts and Science' meant,” he says, adding that Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) has since sought for his permission to use the new term.

He left his lecturing position in 2001, as he wanted to seek bigger fortune and felt being an entrepreneur was the way to go.

“But there was also the issue of being responsible for the students' failure, which I don't agree with. If they fail, they fail. I shouldn't need to explain why they failed because they are responsible for their learning.

“The education system is so prescriptive and there's a culture of spoon feeding the students,” he laments.

Building a business

Prestariang is set up with a unique aim to train individuals to have knowledge, skills and attitude for employment through ICT training and certification as well as software licence distribution and management.

It is a certified partner for various technology and software vendors including Microsoft and IBM. Through these, it runs two core businesses providing ICT training and certification and supplying licences for software used in the training and certification.

Abu aims to continue evolving Prestariang's business model for it to be more self-sustainable as there are expectations to build on its success now.

“The two important things that I have to address now are sustainability and scalability of the company,” he says.

Since becoming a public listed company in July this year, the company has grown its book order from RM145.29mil to RM299mil. Moving forward, he has set a target to double the company's financial growth.

He believes that for the company to be a contributor to technology, it has to be more than a user and that has encouraged Prestariang to actively register its own intellectual properties (IPs).

“But our IPs cannot be just anything new. For us, they must have commercial value. Before we commercialise an idea, we have to know how much revenue we can generate from it.

“Bottom line, I am a businessman and now I have also to look after our shareholders' value,” he says, explaining that the approach to IPs as a businessperson is different from that of an academic.

“Ultimately, we want to be independent. We are partners with Microsoft and IBM but we should not depend on them because with our own IPs, we can market them however we want to,” he says.

At the core of this jovial entrepreneur is a man with a big heart helping others open their minds.

Although he left the secure life of a full-time lecturer for the trials and tribulation of entrepreneurship, he claims he has never expunged teaching from his heart.

Back to his roots

He is now an adjunct professor at University Teknologi Mara and a visiting professor at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. He is also a board member of Universiti Teknologies Sdn Bhd, an Assessor at the Multimedia Research Grant Scheme under MDeC and sits as a council member at Taylor's University.

“I always knew that I will go back to teaching. I want to contribute through teaching again,” he says.

He now lecturers for free as he does not want to view the classes in monetary terms.

“It is like cooking for me. I enjoy cooking very much but I wouldn't want to open a restaurant because I cook to share, not to earn from others,” says Abu.

He used to lecture on designs based on his architectural knowledge but with his know-how in entrepreneurship, he now teaches on the business of design instead.

Abu says those imparting knowledge need to have some practical experience or know-how of the industry relevant to their course in order to make the learning process more realistic instead of theorectical.

“It is important to know the pulse of the industry the relevance of the course to the actual field and the kind of demands out there otherwise whatever irrelevant things one teaches are multiplied by so many students who will go into the industry,” he says.

Before he left Multimedia University, he spoke to the lecturers there about the need for them to explore the real industry aside from focussing on their classes.

“If anyone should advise them, it should be me because we're on the same side of the classroom and I see what is wrong. But they were not open to the idea,” he recalls.

His goals remain true to the teaching profession as he aspires to help others widen their horizons.

“Not to sound arrogant but I want to produce people like me. I feel there should be more innovative entrepreneurs out there,” he says, adding “I want to encourage more people to be risk-takers.”

He says innovation and risk-taking need to come from both entrepreneurs and institutions that can finance business ideas.

“An innovative society is all about venturing into new areas and setting new benchmarks. People need to understand that not all innovative businesses produce returns quickly,”

Abu says out of an observation that many financial fraternity are short lived because institutions expect immediate returns on the projects they invest in.

Programmed to shut off

One of the most striking habits Abu has is his 6pm cut-off time from work.

“I am very firm with the time I want to spend with my family. I don't mind starting my day early but come 6pm, I leave work,” he says.

He does not believe in business networking dinners and night meetings though he will work from home.

In addition to that, going home early also means he has the time to indulge in his favourite pastime, cooking.

“Every day at 5pm, my wife will text me to see if I will be cooking dinner and most of the days, I cook,” he says.

His family-oriented values also extends to Prestariang where his management style has been more than palatable to the staff there. The company of 50 employees has almost no staff turnover since its inception.

And perhaps that, coupled with his passion to educate, is the reason why Abu has been able to lead Prestariang from being an innovative idea to a sweet success it is beginning to now taste.
