In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

Quam Announces 2012/13 Interim Results

Able to Maintain Market Share on SEHK and Category B Status Amid Unfavourable Markets

Hong Kong, Nov 28, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Quam Limited ("Quam" or the "Group", Stock Code:, a Hong Kong-based financial services group, today announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2012 (the "Period").

During the Period, revenue of Quam amounted to HK$157.4 million (2011: HK$197.0 million), representing a decrease of 20.1% compared to the corresponding period last year. There was a loss attributable to owner of the Company of HK$4.4 million (2011: profit attributable to owner of the Company of HK$238,000), which was mainly due to additional premises-related costs arising from double rental and reinstatement for the transition of the Group's offices in Central. Basic loss per share were HK0.38 cent (2011: earnings per share of HK0.02 cent).

The Group's Board of Directors did not recommend the payment of an interim dividend for the six months ended 30 September 2012 (2011 interim dividend: Nil).

Mr Kenneth LAM, the Chief Executive Officer of Quam, said, "Despite challenging market conditions with uncertainties in global economy, our market shares and Category B status on HKEx maintained, with further steady growth in futures business in terms of volume and turnover, positive growth trend in corporate finance business, inflows of investment to our managed funds and modest performance fees of Asset Management division were captured for the month of September. During the Period, the major relocation of our Head office and other divisions provided added benefits by consolidating our operations and making them more efficient."

During the Period, revenue of securities and futures business was adjusted 23.9% to HK$95.0 million comparing with the same period last year (2011: HK$124.9 million), which was affected by the volatile market. Supported by sufficient banking facilities, margin loan book at the end of the Period stood at HK$388.7 million (31 March 2012: HK$469.3 million). Given the bearish market leading the decrease of investor appetite for new and secondary deals, ECM business activity slowed down, while placement and underwriting fee income reduced to HK$4.4 million (2011: 5.0 million).

Corporate finance activity maintained strong performance during the Period with revenue of HK$24.9 million (2011: HK$27.3 million), as a result of solid deal pipeline with further growth and steady advisory fee income.

Revenue generated from management fees of Asset Management decreased to HK$3.6 million (2011: HK$5.1 million), resulted from the decrease in Assets Under Management ("AUM"). Total AUM stood at US$57.2 million (2011: US$67.6 million). Nevertheless, the launch of a new fund of funds in September is expected to raise another US$10.0 million by the end of December.

Quamnet's revenue was adjusted 18.7% to HK$11.3 million (2011: HK$13.9 million), which was due to the bearish market which reduced on advertising spending and content fees by corporate clients, as well as subscription of research & columnist products from individual clients.

Quam's receivable from the liquidation of MF Global HK was reduced through a second interim payment in July, which the total payout to date amounts to 70% of the client money receivable. The Group's management considered not to reduce provision of HK$7.0 million given the current information and market uncertainties.

Investment of the Group has been undergoing during the Period. Although the Group remains the equity holdings in McMillen Advantage Capital Limited ("MAC"), the Group suggested the management of MAC speed up realization of non-core assets and for the return of capital that has been approved by the courts.

Mr Bernard POULIOT, the Chairman of Quam concluded, "Asia market remains the safe haven with influx on capital. The strong demand of wealth protection with diversified investment portfolio provides a golden opportunity for us. We are considering closer integration between wealth management and asset management divisions by way of short term money management and medium term capital preservation strategies to generate absolute return for our clients. In addition, a newly innovated platform of trading tools that jointly collaborated by Quamnet and securities trading units will be soft launched in the first quarter of 2013, which will give a competitive advantage to both. Benefited from our core business and ongoing cost control measures, we are well-poised to move forward in the near future."
