YPB Group Limited (ASX: YPB) is involved in the sales and development of anti-counterfeiting technology. It was officially listed on ASX in March 2005. On 28th May 2019, the company, by release, updated investors about the increasing adoption of YPB’s proprietary QR codes, also known as ProtectCodes. The adoption of ProtectCodes has fast-tracked in recent months and has achieved a milestone of 75 million codes issued.
The consumer scans the QR codes for verifying the originality of the product. In addition, the scanning process generates a prospect for the brand to communicate directly with their end customer via the company’s Connect Platform. Connect Platform is YPB’s own software platform, which is sold to the customers as a SaaS offering. The connect platform collects data from consumer scans and offers subscribing brand with detailed information on consumer behaviour patterns, which includes timing, location and other purchasing information, which is a substantial value-add to the YPB’s market knowledge.
The connect platform and codes are being sold on a monthly subscription and a per unit basis. PT Combiphar, a pharma giant, is the largest user of the company’s connect platform. The Cellmid as well has adopted the company’s technology to protect its rapidly increasing évolis® product range.
In another recent update dated May 27, 2019, YPB reported that one of the leading woven garment manufacturer in the word, Esquel has added the company’s anti-counterfeit tracer. Subsequent to the successful trials from its previous samples, Esquel has responded to demand from its Household Name brand clients to add anti-counterfeit fiber in its clothing labels. The gross revenue from the initial order of anti-counterfeit fiber from Esquel for the period stood at RMB 100,000 (A$21,000). YPB Group Limited is expecting further orders based on unit volumes and is optimistic that other well-known Esquel brand clients would incorporate YPB’s AC fibers to protect against counterfeiting.
