  • Product authentication and consumer solutions provider YPB Group (YPB) has announced its China business has won two three-year supply contracts
  • The first will see YPB China supply Suzhou-Haishun Packaging Material with its T2 tracer-scanner authentication solution
  • Suzhou-Haishun will integrate the tracer into an advanced foil application for a pharmaceutical customer as well as promote the benefits of the technology
  • This contract has a pre-determined value of at least $75,000 in revenue with potential upside
  • The second contract involves YPB China supplying Beijing Haihui Printing with the T2 solution
  • Haihui will integrate this into anti-counterfeiting labels for its customers
  • Company shares have soared 25 per cent on the back of this news and are trading for 0.5 cents

Product authentication and consumer solutions provider YPB Group (YPB) has announced its China business has won two supply contracts.


Both contracts are for a three-year term and a contract value of at least $75,000 in revenue has already been determined from the first contract.


"We are steadily building a base of longer-term contracts and with strong client management, we can generate repeat orders and recurring revenues. Obviously, the China opportunity is enormous, and our growing suite of channel partners give us leveraged market access to those very high volumes," YPB Group John Houston said.


First contract

The first contract will see YPB China supply Suzhou-Haishun Packaging Material with its T2 tracer-scanner authentication solution.

Suzo-Haishun is a major pharmaceutical packaging material manufacturer in China that produces cold-forming foils, tropical blister foils, suppository films and lid stock for various pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food applications.


Suzhou-Haishun will incorporate the tracer into an advanced foil application for a China-based pharmaceutical customer. It will also promote YPB's brand and the benefits of its consumer protection solutions.

YPB hopes this will lead to growth beyond the contracted minimum value of $75,000.


Second contract

The second three-year contract is with Beijing Haihui Printing. Haihui will integrate YPB's product authentication tracer and scanner into anti-counterfeiting labels for its customers.


Haihui has been a printing company in China for more than 20 years. It specialises in the technical research and development and printing services of label identification and anti-counterfeiting label identification.


Revenue under this contract is based on purchase orders issued by Haihui from time to time.


"Securing two new, high-quality China channel partners in new end-customer segments that are immediately revenue-generating and with the sales process occurring through the difficulties of COVID-19 reflects the increasing effectiveness of our revised China sales strategy," John stated.


Company shares have soared 25 per cent on the back of this news and are trading for 0.5 cents each at 11:13 am AEST.

  • YPB Group (YPB) has reported a 52 per cent improvement in net operating loss during the first half of 2020, compared to the prior corresponding period
  • YPB is an Australian-based product authentication and consumer engagement solutions provider
  • The company reduced expenses significantly through cost-saving initiatives, temporary salary reductions and labor costs
  • In fact, labor costs including employee and director fees led to YPB saving around $703,000
  • Unfortunately, revenue also dropped by a hefty 41 per cent compared to H1 2019
  • This is largely due to the closure of YPB's Retail Anti-Theft (RAT) business and COVID-19 impacting customer ordering
  • YPB remains focused on expanding its presence in China with new channel partners as well as making progress with its unique authenticity solutions
  • Company shares steady on the market and are trading for 0.5 cents

YPB Group (YPB) has reported a 52 per cent improvement in its net operating loss during H1 2020 compared to H1 2019.


YPB is an Australian-based product authentication and consumer engagement solutions provider. Its proprietary smartphone-enabled technology suite allows consumers to confirm product authenticity. For brands, this triggers consumers' engagement.


As budgeted, revenue from Retail Anti-Theft (RAT) was zero for the first half of this year following the closure of that business late in the prior corresponding period (pcp). It was also a significant reason for the 41 per cent decline in revenue compared to H1 2019.


Cost of sales, or direct product costs, also fell significantly to $10,000 from $152,000. This reflects the product costs of RAT in the pcp.


Additionally, COVID-19 also affected planned revenues by interrupting normal customer ordering and new business development.


Largely due to the pandemic, YPB reduced costs by 52 per cent through aggressive cost action and temporary salary reductions, as well as directors moving to zero director fees from April to December this year. Lowering labor costs effectively saved the company around $703,000 in H1 2020.


"H1 2020 demonstrates that YPB is heading toward becoming a successful, self-funding business," CEO John Houston said.

Positively, the high intellectual property content of YPB's revenues accounts for the 97 per cent gross margin in H1 2020, up from 75 per cent in the prior period. In H1 2019, RAT gross margins of around 30 per cent lowered the average.

The company expects the high gross margins will be sustained as they are a key element in its plan to profitability, as profit leverage to revenue growth is extremely high.

As of June 30 2020, YPB held $532,000 in cash and cash equivalents.


Momentum in China

YPB China is attracting significant new interest for YPB's T2 tracer-scanner technology which monitors and maintains product security in supply chains.


The company's strategy on expanding its presence in China is focusing almost exclusively on major suppliers of parts, packaging and other inputs to major branded consumer goods manufacturers.


YPB already has a 'toe-in-the-door' and is now focused on driving volumes significantly higher.


"YPB China’s market development progress with our established T2 tracer-scanner is very encouraging and it is possible that T2 in China alone could underwrite the company’s profitability should we be able to build further momentum in that business over time," John stated.


Furthermore, a new sales resource was added in Thailand late in H1 2020. Specifically, an innovative MM1 high security shrink wrap was developed with OPP Gravure Printing Co in Thailand. While COVID-19 slowed down development activities, the company is still interested in further progressing this relationship.


Connect and Motif Micro

In H1 2020, the new generation, user-friendly, lower-cost Connect 2.0 consumer engagement platform was released. YPB is in the process of migrating customers from Connect 1.0 to 2.0. Once the migration is completed, YPB expects lower hosting and other operating costs.


Major progress was also made on MotifMicro1 smartphone readability which led to YPB announcing the added Android functionality to the existing iOS capability. This marked a major technical hurdle on MotifMicro’s commercial development path.

The Android capability is included in the second generation MotifMicro1 app which was also released at the end of July.


Company shares are steady and are trading for 0.5 cents at 2:29 pm AEST.
