  • 1. BASIS OF PREPARATION

    The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Hong Kong Accounting Standard ("HKAS") 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants ("HKICPA") and with the applicable disclosure requirements of Appendix 16 to the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the "Listing Rules").

  • 2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES

    These interim financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2020. They have been prepared on the historical cost basis.

    The accounting policies and methods of computation applied in preparation of these interim financial statements are consistent with those applied in preparing the Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2020 except for the adoption of the new/revised Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards ("HKFRS"), which collective term includes all applicable individual HKFRS, HKAS and Interpretations issued by the HKICPA that are relevant to the Group and effective from the current period as stated below:

    Amendments to HKASs 1 and 8

    Definition of Material

    Amendments to HKAS 39, HKFRS 7 and 9

    Interest Rate Benchmark Reform

    Amendments to HKFRS 3

    Definition of Business

    The adoption of these amendments to HKFRS and HKAS did not have any significant effect on the financial position or performance of the Group.

    The Group has not applied the new and revised HKFRSs that have been issued but are not yet effective. The Group has already commenced an assessment of the impact of these new and revised HKFRSs but is not yet in a position to state whether these new and revised HKFRSs would have a material impact on its results of operations and financial position.

    No Hong Kong profits tax has been provided for the six months ended 31 December 2020 as the Company incurred losses for tax purpose and certain subsidiaries of the Group have tax losses brought forward to set-off the estimated assessable profits.

    Hong Kong profits tax is calculated at 16.5% on the estimated profits for the six months ended 31 December 2020 after deduction of tax concession.

    The income tax provision of the Group in respect of operations in Mainland China has been calculated at the rate of 25% (2019: 25%) on the estimated assessable profits for the period, based on the existing legislation, interpretations and practices in respect thereof.

    No recognition of the potential deferred tax assets relating to tax losses of the Group has been made as the recoverability of the potential deferred tax assets is uncertain.

    The directors of the Company do not recommend the payment of an interim dividend for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019: Nil).

The reduction in loss was mainly resulted from the exchange gain of approximately HK$2.4 million as compared with the loss of HK$1.9 million in 2019 corresponding period, which was resulted from the translation of balances denominated in foreign currencies. Uncertainty from the coronavirus pandemic, a tumbling US economy and an increase in USD money supply have caused the US dollar decline. The U.S. currency is near its lowest level in 3 years and is down about 10% from its 2020 peak against the basket of major world currencies. Euro rallied against US dollar and HK dollar in the second half of 2020, and thus resulting in the exchange gain. Nevertheless, the magnitude of loss reduction had been lessened by the increase in loss in plastic recycling segment under the adverse impact of the plummeting crude oil price as well as the stagnant plastic recycling market and shortage in feedstock supply in face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Segment Information

  • (a) Renewable Energy - trading of oil/biodiesel

    The Group recorded a revenue of HK$33.6 million from the trading of recyclable oil/biodiesel for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019 corresponding period: HK$67.8 million).

    The price of biodiesel had slumped from its record-high in January 2020 and picked up slowly after April 2020. Restrictions on international travel and regional and local movement prevented people and goods from circulating freely, which greatly hit the transport fuel demand. In addition, a lowering of crude oil prices since the start of the pandemic had also made biofuels less competitive with fossil transport fuels.

    Besides, a shortage of containers and unexpected demand for delivery by sea has driven a surge in international freight rates in the second half of 2020. Container shipping rates remained at record highs in all routes, which had deterred lots of orders with slim profit margin. Low container availability had also delayed some shipments in the second half of 2020. This business segment has been facing different challenges in 2020, which led to approximately 50% reduction in revenue as compared to last corresponding period.

  • (b) Waste construction materials and waste processing service

    The revenue of this business segment involves the collection and recycling of waste construction materials and the sale of recycled construction materials. The revenue arising from this sector was approximately HK$2.4 million for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019 corresponding period: HK$2.6 million). The Group had strived for the continuous operation of this segment even under the severe conditions of COVID-19 pandemic, so it could still keep a similar level of revenue as the 2019 corresponding period. It is also a way to maintain the long-established trust and relationship with the local construction companies and government authorities.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

  • (c) Plastic Recycling/Metal Scrap

    This revenue arising from plastic recycling/metal scrap sector recorded a revenue of HK$3.7 million for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019 corresponding period: HK$2.7 million). The increase in revenue was mainly resulted from the contribution by the subsidiary in Japan. Nevertheless, the segment had resulted in a loss of HK$4.4 million (2019 corresponding period: HK$2.9 million) as the revenue of the Japanese operation still could not cover its fixed operating cost and overhead.

    With the outbreak of COVID-19, reduced economic activity has seen sharp falls in global oil prices. The pandemic has also intensified a price war between recycled and new plastic, made by the oil industry. The economic viability of the European and global plastics recycling market is presently under significant pressure.

    In addition, a devastating second wave of the pandemic has forced reluctant governments back into lockdowns or restrictions and inflicted new scars on European economies. Since the COVID-19 struck, the recycling business of the Group in Germany had shrunk as recyclers worldwide.

    For the new business on high-grade plastic waste recycling and processing in Japan, the completion of machine installation and its live run has been postponed to the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic had paralyzed tourism and economies in Japan after the declaration of the state of emergency to compel a lockdown. The plummeting in demand of plastic packaging had created shortage in feedstock of reclaimed plastic, so the processing operation of the Group in Japan ran far below its full capacity.

  • (d) Money lending business

    There was no revenue arising from this sector for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019 corresponding period: HK$1.5 million). With economic conditions worsening and incomes negatively affected by the global pandemic, the delinquency rates in money lending market continued their upward trend. New deal launches grounded to a halt amid COVID-19. The Group had to take a more cautious and conservative approach to weigh on credit quality of new lending.

  • (e) Healthcare business

    The key element of this sector involves the laboratory diagnostic service and clinical health service. The revenue arising from the healthcare business sector was approximately HK$0.4 million for the six months ended 31 December 2020 (2019 corresponding period: Nil). The Group started its new venture in the healthcare business segment in December 2020 in view of the needs of COVID-19 testing service in Hong Kong. It was a part of the business diversification of the Group.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK AND FUTURE PROSPECTUS

The macroeconomic conditions of the globe are likely to remain under stress at least for the first half of 2021. COVID-19 vaccines are distributed en masse, the global economic recovery in 2021 may prove the fastest in decades. However, it is too difficult to predict how long the globe's recessionary economy can get back on track. The pandemic, and associated lockdowns, will leave a grim legacy that could also take decades to overcome.

On the other hand, under a Biden administration, there is a higher likelihood of less volatile U.S.-China trade relations. It may reduce fluctuation in the global economy and capital markets, and thus accelerating the post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

Looking ahead, the Group will keep on exercising disciplined expense and payment control to optimize its liquidity and financial health. The Group will take a prudent and cautious approach in developing its existing and new businesses to broaden its income stream. In pursuit of high-grade plastic waste recycling and processing, the subsidiary in Japan strives for quality improvement by fine tuning the machineries and technology in order to meet the tightening requirements of various countries on import of recycled plastics.

In the last quarter of 2020, the Group made a head start in the new venture in the healthcare business segment in order to grab a slice of the market share. The COVID-19 pandemic seems to augur well for the healthcare industry and diagnostic testing industry as people are increasingly opting for health diagnoses and preventive healthcare.

EMPLOYEE AND REMUNERATION POLICY
