- Strong growth delivered across all divisions, expected to continue into 2H2018
- Net profit after tax increases by 50%, to RMB17.04 million (A$3.4 million - see Note below) as compared to RMB11.34 million (A$2.27 million) in the previous corresponding six- month period

For the six-month period ended 30 June 2018, Retech delivered net profit after tax of RMB17.04 million (A$3.4 million), up 50% from RMB11.34 (A$2.27 million). Net profit before tax was RMB20.36 million (A$4.1 million), an increase of 29%, compared to the previous corresponding six-month period.
Net profit after tax was driven by increased revenue, up 21%, to RMB48.65 million (A$9.7 million) from RMB40.1 million (A$8 million). Retech's Chinese subsidiaries benefited from a preferential tax rate as a result of their 'New Technology Enterprise' status.
Retech's increase in revenue resulted from strong demand for enterprise online training solutions across mainland China, most notably within the finance, auto and high-tech industries.
Strong growth was delivered across all divisions especially within E-learning solutions, as a result of client acquisitions and streamlined operations.
The Company continues to target and engage with new customers across all industries as it builds its sales pipeline to support its expansion across the Asian and Australian markets. As an example Retech signed a software supply agreement with Bank of China in Q2 2018, for the provision of a bespoke online training platform to support the development of its employees in China.
Further to this, the Company is actively developing its online learning operations within Australia
Liu Cheng, Chief Executive Officer Commented:
