Financial Performance

Dear Valued Shareholders, On behalf of the Board of Directors, it gives me great pleasure to present to you the Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements of the Jerasia Capital Berhad (‘JCB’) Group for the financial period ended 30 June 2016.”

Total Revenue

RM503.61 million

The current financial period ended 30 June 2016 covered a period of 15 months due to the change in the Group’s reporting date from 31 March to 30 June. This change was envisaged to ensure continued and enhanced operational and administrative efficiencies arising from the implementation of Goods and Services Tax (‘GST’) on 1 April 2015. It is to be noted however, that with this change in reporting date, any comparisons between this 15 months financial period to previous financial periods of 12 months must take due cognizance of the differential in duration. The financial period under review was indeed a challenging one, both in the domestic Malaysian as well as the international trading environment. The Group, however, demonstrated resilience to achieve a total turnover of RM503.61 million over the 15 months in question. Profit before tax was recorded at RM9.17 million. Turnover for the Group had, in the first four quarters of this financial period, increased by 15.4% to reach RM389.25 million from RM337.23 million from the last 12 month financial period. Despite external shocks, the domestic economy is expected to grow. Bank Negara Malaysia (‘BNM’) projects the growth rate at 4.0 – 4.5%. Nevertheless, as stated in BNM’s Annual Report 2015, “the pace of expansion in domestic demand, however, is expected to be more moderate amid ongoing adjustments by consumers and investors to the challenging economic environment. Private consumption growth is projected to trend below its long-term average, as households continue to make expenditure adjustments in response to the lingering effects of the GST implementation, and changes in administered prices. Household spending will also be affected by weaker consumer sentiments due to the uncertain conditions in the labour and financial markets.” The global economy continues to be clouded by uncertainties. Oil and commodity prices remain at low levels while the currency markets were volatile and this volatility still remains going forward. The recent historic Brexit referendum, of which its actual impact on the global economy has not been fully appraised yet, all suggests that it is well advised for the Group to adopt a prudent and vigilant approach.

Corporate Social Responsibility Statement

Di blanden dendernatae volore vende platquae eum qui none nonsecusa

Jerasia Capital Berhad (“JCB”) as a Group believes that the fundamental principles of good corporate governance and responsibility lie in the fact that organisations should place a firm commitment towards Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) activities. JCB’s vision in CSR is based on being a socially responsible and caring corporate citizen, which places a strong weightage towards achieving a balance between profitability and contributions. Our CSR philosophy integrates our social and environmental responsibilities into our business strategies for the sustainable growth of the Company, which is in line with the CSR Framework for Public Listed Companies launched by Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa Securities”). The Group emphasises CSR on four main focal areas, which are the Environment, the Community, the Workplace and the Marketplace, in no order of priority.

Di blanden dendernatae volore vende.

The Environment

The Community

JCB understands that to be socially responsible and play an actual role in preserving the environment, it is essential to operate in an environmentally conscious manner. Whenever and wherever possible, the Group has made efforts to reduce the impact of our business activity on the environment, especially in significant areas of impact such as electricity usage.

During the course of the year, JCB made donations to orphanages for them to be able to provide for the under-privileged children.

JCB continues to support the Earth Hour campaign, a yearly event that encourages communities worldwide to turn off nonessential lights for one hour. All our boutiques in shopping malls across Malaysia reduced the number of lights on the retail floor or windows for Earth Hour on 19 March. The Group also strives to reduce the amount of natural resources used, by using electronic means of communication instead of paper, and minimising travel which emits carbon emissions by using video conferencing and Skype whenever possible.

The Group also has an internship programme for undergraduates who have an interest in the fashion retail industry. From a timeframe of 1-3 months, the programme exposes our interns to the wide value-chain spectrum of the fashion industry to provide them a hands-on learning experience. In September 2015, the yearly haze that blankets over Malaysia was exceptionally bad, with Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) readings reaching very unhealthy levels of over 200. The Group distributed N95 masks to employees of the Group, as well as to the students and staff of University Kuala Lumpur, so that they will be protected from the hazardous conditions brought about by the haze should it be necessary that they carry out their duties outdoors.

Corporate Social Responsibility Statement

The Workplace

The Marketplace

JCB is committed in its social responsibilities at the workplace by having in place a safety committee to oversee the safety, health and welfare at work for all employees and sending staff for workshops on safety in order to ensure that working conditions are in compliance with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (OSHA).

JCB recognises that attention to good corporate governance ensures that business sustainability is developed and maintained. In line with this, the Group’s Code of Conduct serves as the standard for business ethics and conduct of the Group, creating a corporate culture in which the business of the Group is conducted in an ethical and professional manner and where the highest standards of professionalism are upheld.

In addition, JCB prioritises the welfare of its staff and has made commitments towards enhancing academic advancements for its staff as well as providing the necessary medical financial aid. Subsequent to the financial period ended 30 June 2016, the Group was presented with an award by the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) at their recent Appreciation Ceremony on 29th September 2016. This Certificate of Appreciation was awarded to the Group for having outstanding records, diligently and responsibly contributing to the EPF on behalf of the employer as well as its employees.

Furthermore, the Group emphasises and encourages the usage of paper bags instead of plastic bags in an effort to “go green”. In line with our corporate policies on promoting business sustainability through good corporate social responsibility, JCB fully intends to continue to explore new opportunities to increase our contribution to the community. Our commitment and sincerity in giving something back to the communities in which we operate will continue to remain steadfast and consistent.

The Group emphasises and encourages the usage of paper bags instead of plastic bags in an effort to “go green”.
