DomaCom Limited (ASX: DCL) operates an Internet-based investment platform. The Company allows investors to purchase fractional interests in specific properties, as well as offers financial advisory on direct property and conduct of outright purchase of a property. DomaCom serves customers in Australia.
The company has disclosed on ASX that following a 3-month review process, one of Australia’s Big 4 banks is set to launch a 6-month pilot for fractional property investment using DomaCom. The company’s CEO Arthur Naoumidis said that DomaCom has always been an intermediated business and has been seeking a sizeable B2C partner for some time and the management are looking forward to progressing this pilot with the bank.
For the FY 2018, the company reported a loss of $5.7 million ($6.1 million loss 2017), which was in line with what management had expected and reflected company’s position as an early stage company. The company underwent a significant cost reduction program during FY2018. There were substantial costs savings across all the vital areas. In particular, the salary and wages were recorded at 24% lower than the previous year, which represented a reduction of $0.6 million from $2.5 million for FY2017 to $1.9 million for FY2018. The full effect of these costs savings will continue to be seen in the ensuing FY2019.
The management had stated the Outlook and said that, while progress has been much slower than the management expected, the company’s business is a complicated business that is; finally, the management believes, nearing the “home stretch.” The company has been successful in addressing the critical roadblocks to its business, and it is now well positioned for the future.
The management believes that the coming 12 months will be a time when the company starts to demonstrate traction in our business with substantial growth in our underlying FUM and with the sequential improvement in our cash flow.The ability to have debt has already started to make to a difference to the operational success of the company as it has taken the company three years to get to $28 Million in FUM and then within a few months of having lending available the FUM grew to $35 million.
The management now has another $17 million of transactions due to exchange in the next little while which will take the company to around $52 Million. The management also has a further $100 Million plus of deals in the pipeline – all of which have debt involved which shows the importance of debt on property investment.
