Executive Chairman's Message

Chairman

Dear Shareholders,

Our markets are buoyant and we continue to invest in our future growth. 2017 saw us moving into a new business area to expand the scope of our business and bring additional earning streams to the Group. We incorporated Kingsmen Ventures, an investment holding company and Kingsmen Xperience, a company based in the US, to create and own media/entertainment themed licenses and attractions. The establishment of our collaboration with Hasbro International, Inc. to co-conceptualise, create, build and operate NERF family entertainment centre (FEC) attractions across Asia Pacific is the first step into this exciting and growing area.

Our new Kingsmen HQ, to be ready by the second half of 2018 will be another major step in the transformation of Kingsmen and the pivotal anchor of our creative and experiential business focus. To this end, our Kingsmen Academy will continue to play a key role in the training and development of our people to serve our clients, and we continue to invest in new course offerings and the updating of course content for market needs.

Extracted from Annual Report 2017

Dear Shareholders,

Our markets are buoyant and we continue to invest in our future growth. 2017 saw us moving into a new business area to expand the scope of our business and bring additional earning streams to the Group. We incorporated Kingsmen Ventures, an investment holding company and Kingsmen Xperience, a company based in the US, to create and own media/entertainment themed licenses and attractions. The establishment of our collaboration with Hasbro International, Inc. to co-conceptualise, create, build and operate NERF family entertainment centre (FEC) attractions across Asia Pacific is the first step into this exciting and growing area.

Our new Kingsmen HQ, to be ready by the second half of 2018 will be another major step in the transformation of Kingsmen and the pivotal anchor of our creative and experiential business focus. To this end, our Kingsmen Academy will continue to play a key role in the training and development of our people to serve our clients, and we continue to invest in new course offerings and the updating of course content for market needs.

On the financial front, we recorded a revenue of S$307.2 million and net profit of S$9.7 million in 2017. There was a 6.8% decrease in revenue and an 18.1% decrease in net profit compared to 2016. Our performance was impacted due to the soft retail market, adverse movements in foreign exchange, the completion of several thematic projects and the scheduling of new projects in the pipeline.

Our Exhibitions & Thematic division recorded a revenue of S$136.8 million in 2017, a 9.7% decrease compared to S$151.5 million in 2016, as a number of the larger scale projects were completed in 2016. The division is seeing good demand for its services and is optimistic about its prospects due to various projects already in the works, and several others in the pipeline.

Amidst soft retail conditions, our Retail & Corporate Interiors division continues to push hard as we expand our reach in the hospitality, corporate interior, F&B and mall public area segments while continuing to serve clients in our more established markets of high-end luxury, affordable luxury, fast fashion and travel retail. The division registered a revenue of S$143.2 million in 2017, a 4.9% decline compared to S$150.5 million in 2016.

Our Research & Design division maintained steady growth, registering a revenue of S$15.5 million in 2017, an increase of 2.9% compared to S$15.1 million in 2016. In addition, our Alternative Marketing division achieved a revenue of S$11.8 million in 2017, a decrease of 7.2% from S$12.7 million in 2016. We are taking steps to expand our base of clients and expect improved contribution from the division.

Looking ahead, we see good potential for our continued growth as the diverse industries we serve, and the services and capabilities we have built over the years put us in a unique position. As consumer preferences and needs gravitate towards an experiential focus, demand for our services will continue to expand. As at 31 January 2018, we have secured contracts of S$84 million, of which S$82 million is expected to be recognised in 2018.

In line with the Group's policy of distributing its profits to loyal shareholders, the Board of Directors has proposed a final dividend of 1.5 cents per ordinary share. Combined with the interim dividend of 1.0 cent per ordinary share paid in September 2017, we would have paid out a total dividend of 2.5 cents per ordinary share for 2017.

In closing, I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to all members of Kingsmen for their dedication and passion in delivering value for our clients and the Group. I would also like to acknowledge the Board of Directors for their steadfast support and guidance throughout the year. Last but not least, I am grateful to our business associates, clients and shareholders for their continued support and belief in us.

We are confident that we are on the right path and have the right strategy to deliver on our full potential. We remain committed in pursuit of new business opportunities and delivering value for all our stakeholders.

Revenue

For the financial year ended 31 December 2017 ("FY2017"), the Group recorded a revenue of S$307.2 million, a decrease of S$22.5 million or 6.8% compared to S$329.7 million for the previous corresponding financial year ended 31 December 2016 ("FY2016").

The Exhibitions & Thematic division registered a revenue of S$136.8 million in FY2017, a decrease of S$14.7 million or 9.7% from S$151.5 million in FY2016. The decrease in revenue was due to the completion of several key projects in FY2016. The key contributors to the division's revenue included major events and projects such as BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global, Desaru Adventure Waterpark, Downton Abbey Touring Exhibition, Dubai Frame, Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, Heilan Horse Cultural Experience Pavilion, King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture, Madame Tussauds, National Day Parade 2017, TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference 2017 and thematic projects in the region.

The Retail & Corporate Interiors division recorded a revenue of S$143.2 million in FY2017, a decrease of S$7.3 million or 4.9% compared to S$150.5 million in FY2016. The decrease in revenue was due to the softer retail industry in some of the markets. The key accounts which contributed to the division's revenue included clients and brand names such as Aldo, Birkenstock, Coach, DBS Bank, DFS Venture, Dior, Fendi, La Perla, Lululemon, Robinsons, Skechers, Tiffany & Co. and YATA.

The Research & Design division registered a revenue of S$15.5 million in FY2017, an increase of S$0.4 million or 2.9% compared to S$15.1 million in FY2016. The key accounts which contributed to the division's revenue included clients and brand names such as Burberry, Gucci, Madame Tussauds, Procter & Gamble Co., Robinsons and Tencent, and thematic projects in the region.

The Alternative Marketing division achieved a revenue of S$11.8 million in FY2017, a decrease of S$0.9 million or 7.2% from S$12.7 million in FY2016. The key contributors to the division's revenue included events and projects from clients such as DFASS, Global Young Scientists Summit, International Public Policy Association, Shinnyo-en Singapore, StarHub and Techinnovation 2017.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for FY2017 decreased by S$6.2 million or 7.5% to S$77.2 million compared to S$83.4 million in FY2016. The decrease was mainly a result of the lower revenue registered. Gross profit margin remained stable at 25.1% in FY2017 compared to 25.3% in FY2016.

Other Items Of Income

Interest income relates mainly to interest income earned from short-term deposits and bank balances placed with banks.

Other income decreased by S$0.7 million or 15.5% from S$4.7 million in FY2016 to S$4.0 million in FY2017. The decrease was mainly due to lower rental income of S$0.3 million and an absence of net foreign exchange gain of S$0.3 million.

Other Items Of Expense

Lower operating expenses were incurred in FY2017 compared to FY2016. The lower depreciation charge on property, plant and equipment was mainly due to fully depreciated assets, of which no further depreciation charge was recorded in FY2017. The decrease in employee benefits expense was mainly due to lower costs resulting from reduced headcount and lower performance linked incentives recorded. Other expenses rose mainly due to a net foreign exchange loss of S$1.6 million recorded in FY2017 compared to a net foreign exchange gain of S$0.3 million recorded in other income in FY2016. This arose mainly from the appreciation of the Singapore Dollar against the various currencies that the Group conducted its operations in, in particular the United States Dollar. The fall in interest expense was mainly due to a lower amount of loans and borrowings outstanding in FY2017 compared to FY2016.

Share Of Results Of Associates

Share of results of associates changed by S$0.5 million from a loss of S$0.2 million in FY2016 to a profit of S$0.3 million in FY2017. The change was mainly due to profit contribution from certain associates partially offset by loss contribution from an associate acquired in FY2016.

Profit Net Of Tax Attributable To Equity Holders Of The Company

Based on the above, profit net of tax attributable to equity holders of the Company decreased by S$2.2 million or 18.1% from S$11.9 million in FY2016 to S$9.7 million in FY2017.

    Shareholdings

    Revenue

    The Group registered a year-to-date ("YTD") revenue of S$235.2 million for FY10 compared to S$242.0 million in FY09. The decrease of S$6.8 million or 2.8% in revenue was mainly due to lower revenue contribution from the Exhibitions & Museums division which is partially offset by better top-line performance from the Interiors division.

    The Exhibitions & Museums division posted revenue of S$105.2 million compared with S$137.4 million in FY09. In FY09, about S$78 million of the division's revenue was contributed by a substantial project for Universal Studios Singapore which was completed and handed over in Dec 2009. Despite not having this one-off mega project in 2010, the division has done very well.

    During the year, the division completed the works for seven pavilions at the World Expo Shanghai 2010 which contributed about S$25 million in revenue. The Group also successfully delivered the works for Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games, F1 Singapore Grand Prix, exhibition projects such as Food and Hotel Asia 2010, Singapore Airshow 2010, Tax Free Asia Pacific 2010, BMW Asia auto-show in Singapore and Nissan/Infiniti at various autoshows in China.

    The Interiors division performed well with an increase in revenue of S$22.9 million or 24.5% to S$116.6 million as compared to S$93.7 million in FY09.

    The opening of the second integrated resort at Marina Bay Sands during 2010 has boosted the division's revenue. We have completed more than 35 shops, many which were for world-renowned brands. These projects contributed about S$23 million to our revenue.

    The division continues to sustain good revenue contributions from key customers and brand names and recurring revenue from the export of fixtures. Key contributors to revenue during FY10 include Aldo, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Fendi, F J Benjamin, Hinckley, Luxury Venture, Polo Ralph Lauren, Swarovski and The Hour Glass. We have also fitted out several boutiques for Tiffany in Singapore and China and for Burberry in China, Mongolia, Vietnam and India.

    The Research & Design division achieved growth of S$0.6 million or 11.7% in revenue to S$6.4 million in FY10 compared to S$5.8 million in same period last year. The increase is due to more design jobs undertaken in FY10, which is in tandem with the overall growth of the Group. Revenue from the IMC division increased from S$5.2 million to S$7.0 million.

    Gross Profit

    Gross profit increased by S$5.9 million or 9.9% to S$65.4 million in FY10 as compared to S$59.5 million in FY09. Gross profit margin also improved to 27.8% from 24.6%.

    Other Income

    Other income comprises items of corporate fees, insurance claims, rental income, jobs credit grant and other miscellaneous income.

    Other Items of Expenses

    Operating expenses increased by S$4.1 million from S$44.6 million for FY09 to S$48.7 million for FY10 due to the following: -

    1. increase in staff salaries and related expenses of S$2.6 million to S$35.4 million;
    2. increase in net foreign exchange loss of S$0.1 million to S$0.7 million;
    3. increase in operating lease expenses of S$0.3 million to S$3.4 million;
    4. increase in allowance for doubtful trade debts and bad trade debts written off of S$0.2 million; and
    5. write-off of plant and property amounting to S$0.4 million as a result of the fire at our Malaysia factory premises.
