Registry Direct Limited (ASX: RD1) is a securities registry business which has developed a proprietary cloud based shareholder and securities management platform. The platform empowers issuers with advanced functionality to automate laborious tasks and enrich engagement with their shareholders. Its delivery as a Software as a Service (SaaS) product provides a contemporary and flexible solution that aims to transform the way in which issuers manage their securities registers.

The company, whilst also targeting listed companies and unit trusts as clients, is initially focusing its marketing efforts on what it regards to be a large, and traditionally underserviced, segment of the registry market, being public unlisted companies, proprietary companies, investment funds and employee share schemes. Its proprietary “self-service” software system has been designed to be user friendly, easy to deploy and relatively low cost.

The following diagram compares the traditional business model of registry companies who focus on listed companies with the highly scalable business model of Registry Direct.

Offer Overview

Registry Direct Limited is looking to raise up to $6 million via its IPO, resulting in an expected market capitalisation of $20.6 million at a maximum subscription.  The purpose of the offer includes to fund the development of additional software features and the engagement of sales and marketing resources to drive future growth and expansion.

In addition, for every share subscribed for and issued there will be 1 attaching Option exercisable at $0.30 on the date which is 2 years from the date of issue. The Options will be quoted on the ASX under the code RD1O.

Revenue Generation

Registry Direct generates revenue by charging its clients a recurring fee based on the number of security holders of that client each month, plus an additional fee for support services.  In FY2017 the company generated sales revenues for $648k, a 77% increase on FY2016 revenues of $367k.

Business Positioning

Registry Direct’s SaaS product allows unlisted entities to access to the same enterprise-grade registry software as a listed entity and deal directly with their respective security holders.  The company intends to capitalise on its first-mover advantage in the unlisted Issuer market where this functionality has not previously been available on a cost-effective basis.

As a result of this business model, Registry Direct expects to attract more clients with smaller registers which might otherwise not be attracted to the cost of engaging a traditional full-service registry provider.

Growth Strategy

The company intends to implement growth strategies to pursue mass scale of its self-service platform, engaging a substantial audience of new clients, and reducing the company’s reliance on any one, or few, existing key clients. In particular, the company’s key strategies for growth include:

  • the self-service offering targeting private and unlisted potential clients to enable them to manage their compliance requirements internally through the Platform;
  • white label capabilities offering lawyers, accountants and other advisors to use the Platform to offer registry or company secretarial services under their own branding;
  • third party integration capabilities will enable the customers of complementary service providers to enable their clients’ accounts to integrate with and receive information from their Registry Direct account (for example, ownership of title and accounting information); and
  • CHESS integration to facilitate the seamless quotation of existing or new clients’ securities on the ASX and NSX.

 

As set out in Section 4 of the Prospectus, Registry Direct Limited is subject to a range of risks, including but not limited to technology and software issues, liquidity and restrictions on shares, maintaining customer base, client cost and impacts on growth.

Appetise is a UK-based online and mobile takeaway food marketplace with ~90,000 registered customers and 400 restaurant partners on its platform. The business has a national footprint, is scalable with low capex, and derives its revenue from commissions charged to restaurants. Appetise is a pure play marketplace between consumers and restaurants. The company does not handle delivery or logistics or manage a fleet of delivery drivers, and has an operating model is similar to that of MenuLog in Australia.

The UK market for takeaway exceeds $10 billion annually, with Just Eat dominating market share. JustEat has taken advantage of low competition and offers a higher cost proposition for restaurants and customers as compared to Appetise, which has created an opportunity for a nimble competitor.

Appetise plans to win market share from the accelerating migration of telephone ordering to online, and aims to grow market share via:

  • Eliminating restaurant joining fee of up to £699 charged by the competition
  • Charging restaurants up to a 10% commission on orders (compared to up to 14% charged by the competition)
  • Providing consumers with a loyalty scheme
  • Not charging 50 pence card fee charged to consumers by competition
  • Being the only platform to provide restaurant hygiene ratings on its platform

The company had a gross order volume of ~$500,000 and net revenue of ~$50,000 in in the year to 31 March 2017.

Offer Overview

Appetise (Holdings) Limited is seeking to raise between $4.8 million and $6.8 million via its IPO, with a $9 million pre-money market cap, resulting in an expected capitalisation of $15.8 million at the maximum subscription.  The purpose of the offer is to expand the sales team, undertake marketing campaigns and invest in further development of platform and systems, as well as fund the overhead and the working capital.

Further, the Company intends that all Shareholders of the Company registered on a record date falling approximately 3 months after the date Appetise is admitted to the Official List should receive 1 loyalty Option for every 2 Shares. The Options will be quoted on ASX and have an exercise price of $0.22 each and an expiry date two years after issue.  

The Company has secured institutional cornerstone investor support for the IPO.

All of the shares other than the shares issued in the IPO will be escrowed for 24 months.

The Market

The global food delivery market was estimated to be $124 billion in November 2016 with the UK takeaway market being a significant proportion of that, and the largest in Europe, at $10.7 billion and expected to grow to $12.8 billion by 2020.  Britons spend more on takeaway food than anyone else in Europe with the average spend being $233 per person per year.  

Further, currently over 50% of all orders from takeaway and delivery restaurants in the UK are still placed by telephone. The rise of digital technology is reshaping the market as consumers, accustomed to shopping online for a wide range of goods and services, expect the same convenience when it comes to ordering dinner.   

Globally, the sector is undergoing aggressive consolidation via M&A at substantial valuations (15+ transactions over the past two years), eg:

  • Just Eat’s proposed acquisition of Hungry House in the UK (subject to regulatory approval)
  • Grubhub acquired Eat24 in August 2017
  • Just Eat acquired Menulog in Australia in May 2015
  • In an adjacent vertical of delivery logistics software, GetSwift (ASX:GSW) IPOed in December 2016

Revenue Model and Growth Strategy

Takeaway and delivery restaurants contract with Appetise to join its platform and have their menus made accessible to consumers. Consumers access Appetise's website and apps, which allow them to view takeaway and delivery restaurants servicing their area and offering a range of cuisines. The company derives its revenue from commissions charged to restaurants on the value of orders placed through Appetise’s platform, which are currently typically set at 10% of the value of the order. The restaurants take responsibility for preparing and delivering the food. Appetise has no involvement, and does not incur costs, in the logistics of food preparation or delivery.  

Appetise believes that its asset-light model affords it the potential for scalability.  

Growth in the number of restaurants on the platform is a key factor in the company's strategy. Appetise intends to use the proceeds of the IPO to grow its sales team so as to increase the number of restaurants available on its platform in clusters, city by city throughout the UK. The Company believes that the fact that it does not charge restaurants fees to enrol in the platform, and the fact that its  commission rates are lower than the key competitor’s are key to Appetise’s ability to sign up additional restaurant partners.

Appetise intends to grow its consumer base by conducting aggressive marketing and public relations campaigns educating the consumer about the options available to it, and the benefits of using the platform (including there being no fee, the loyalty scheme, and being able to make an informed choice through being able to see restaurants hygiene ratings)

Management

The Company has experienced, proven and driven Board and management, which include Keith Edelman, a former CEO of soccer club Arsenal Holdings, Simon Smith, a former CEO of eBay Australia, and Konstantine Karampatsos, formerly Commercial Director of TheFoodMarket.com, Head of e-commerce at Play.com (acquired by Rakuten, one of the world’s largest retailers and e-tailers), and Amazon marketplace specialist.

Important Information

As set out in Section 8 of the Replacement Prospectus, Appetise (Holdings) Limited is subject to a range of risks, including but not limited to technology, conducting business in a competitive market, consumer and restaurant acceptance and reputation.

 

Section 734(6) disclosure: The issuer of the securities is Appetise (Holdings) Limited ACN 619 564 699. The securities to be issued are ordinary shares.

HyGieaCare, Inc. (ASX: HGC) is a US-based healthcare services provider that specialises in providing colon cleansing procedures to patients via the FDA-cleared medical device known as the HyGieaCare Prep System.  HyGieaCare operates by establishing and operating medical centres which provide colon cleansing procedures to patients.  The Company commenced operations in January 2015 and has, to date, established five medical centres across the US, with two additional centres currently under development. 

The HyGieaCare Prep System has performed over 4,450 procedures on patients to 30 June 2017 with zero unexpected or severe adverse events, a 97% adequate preparation rate and excellent patient satisfaction, with 95% of patients surveyed stating a willingness to repeat the procedure. These quality metrics are superior to those experienced by patients using the traditional split-dose Oral Prep for colonoscopy.

The Founder, Gavriel Meron of HyGieaCare Inc., has over 20 years of experience in the gastroenterology market. Gavriel led the development and commercialisation of the PillCam®, a small, disposable capsule used to monitor and diagnose disorders of the gastrointestinal tract without sedation or invasive endoscopic procedures. The PillCam® is sold into gastrointestinal markets around the world.

The Company has an exclusive manufacturing and supply agreement for the HyGieaCare Prep System with Lifestream Purifications Systems (LPS), LLC which manufactures the devices.  LPS is a founding shareholder of the Company.

Offer Overview

HyGieaCare, Inc. is looking to raise $10 million with the right to accept another $5 million in oversubscriptions via its IPO, resulting in an expected market capitalisation of $40 million at a maximum subscription.  The company is offering CHESS Depositary Interests (CDIs) over ordinary shares. CDIs represent the beneficial interest in the underlying shares in a foreign company and are traded in a manner similar to shares of Australian companies listed on the ASX. Each CDI is equivalent to 1 share.

Target Market

There are approximately 15 million colonoscopies performed annually in the United States, primarily to screen for colorectal cancer (CRC).  Despite the prevalence of CRC it is one of the most preventable forms of cancer with routine screening and early diagnosis.  HyGieaCare’s key target market is the US market of bowel preparation for lower endoscopy procedures, and in particular colonoscopy.  HyGieaCare is also targeting the US market for treatment of chronic constipation. The Company estimates that there are currently roughly 45 million chronically constipated patients in the United States, being approximately 14% of the population.  Despite the size of the market, there is a lack of effective, desirable treatment options available, with many patients dissatisfied with currently available over-the-counter and prescription stool softeners and laxatives.

Total HyGieaCare Prep procedures performed by half years

Revenue Generation

HyGieaCare operates by establishing and operating medical centres which provide colon cleansing procedures to patients.  A HyGieaCare Centre can be set up as a joint venture with GI physician groups, a wholly owned entity or under a license agreement with a hospital/medical centre.  In the case of joint venture and wholly owned centres, the Company earns revenue by charging patients per procedure, being either a bowel preparation for colonoscopy or providing relief of chronic constipation.  In the case of license agreements, which the Company is actively pursuing with hospitals, HyGieaCare intends to charge the hospital:

  • an annual license fee;
  • a monthly leasing fee for each HyGieaCare Prep System leased by the Company to the hospital; and
  • a fee for each patient procedure performed.

Use of Funds

The proceeds of the offer will be used to:

  • fund the establishment of new HyGieaCare centres in the US;
  • conduct targeted patient marketing campaigns to raise awareness;
  • conduct further clinical data studies;
  • provide working capital; and
  • pay the costs associated with the Offer.

 

As set out in Section 5, HyGieaCare is subject to a range of risks including, but not limited to, slow professional acceptance of HyGieaCare Prep by GI physicians, loss of key personnel, reputational damage due to a failure in procedure performance, restrictions on physician referrals, reliance on a key supplier, low barriers to entry, competition, limited sales and marketing resources, and changes to the regulatory framework.

 

Section 734(6) disclosure: The issuer of the securities is HyGieaCare, Inc. ARBN 619 947 983. The securities to be issued are CHESS Depository Receipts (CDIs) over ordinary shares in the capital of HyGieaCare, Inc., to be quoted on ASX. The disclosure document for the offer can be obtained via the link above. The offers of the securities are made in, or accompanied by, a copy of the disclosure document. Investors should consider the disclosure document in deciding whether to acquire the securities. Anyone who wants to acquire the securities will need to complete the application form that will be in or will accompany the disclosure document (which can be done via the electronic application form which will become available by clicking the bid button above).​​
