“It has been an exciting quarter for SAIS as we transitioned to become a fully-fledged technology business. Our revenue for the nine months endedSeptember 30, 2019 is in line with our plans as we are taking steps to enhance the sales strategy for our flagship KADDRA platform including appointing Arnaud Elnecave as our Chief Operating Officer. Since coming on board in earlySeptember, he has already begun to establish strong sales and production planning to grow the Kaddra business effectively,” said Quentin Chiarugi, Chief Executive Officer of SAIS.
Arnaud is already on-boarding our first Asian SME client, Envy Motors, and we are looking toward digitalising the Singapore-based luxury automotive dealership’s customer engagement with a custom-built tiered lifestyle ecosystem for their clientele and car enthusiasts. This is the prelude of Kaddra’s strategy to become a leader of mobile commerce technology for the vast SME market. Nevertheless, Kaddra is located in Singapore, which is very advantageous given the latest government schemes supporting SMEs to digitalise themselves across every industry. This places Kaddra at the center of the most dynamic region in the world for mobile commerce growth.
Kaddra suite of sales and marketing tools, intended to enable businesses digitalise their Customer Experience, is the result of over two years of research and development by SAIS. The flagship KADDRA platform was awarded Silver in the “Enterprise Product of the Year – Marketing Software” category at the 7th Annual Best In Biz 2019 International, of which results were announced on August 14,2019.
“This recognition is truly an honour and validates the effort that our team has put in thus far in building a compelling and affordable Digital Transformation solution for SME businesses across a wide range of diverse retail verticals”Chiarugi added.
On September 13, 2019, the Company completed the sale of Sarment, its traditional wine and spirits distribution business, to a private consortium of shareholders. The transaction significantly improved the Company’s balance sheet by removing the previous shareholders debts and resulted in a gain on sale of US$13.5 million.
The sale of Sarment has enabled SAIS management to fully dedicate itself to accelerating Kaddra and its Customer Experience Management (“CXM”) solutions supported by US$4.0 million of additional shareholders funding since April 1, 2019 of which US$2.5 million will be capitalised.
