On 5 August 2016, ISOTeam announced that it has clinched 13 new private and public sector contracts worth $20.11 million. The listed company is a specialist in the eco-conscious Repairs and Redecoration (“R&R”), Addition and Alteration (“A&A”) and complementary niche services.
This is a winning streak for ISOTeam as the company has a reputation for securing contracts because of its excellent track record in project delivery and early adopter of green technologies for its projects. As Singapore drives environmental sustainability in the building and construction industry, companies like ISOTeam will continue to thrive and grow.
ISOTeam has also started to build new capabilities in the renewable energy sector. In early 2016, it has installed Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic Systems on roofs of 33 blocks at Tampines estate worth approximately $1.8 million. Recently, it has won a $0.20 million contract to install Emergency Fuel Cell Operating Power Systems as back-up power generators for lifts of a number of HDB blocks at Punggol. Wealth builders should note this green initiative because it is likely that this may be implemented in more public housing in Singapore, indicating a potential huge untapped market to penetrate.
Of course, Singapore market is too small and is saturated with many players. Thus, ISOTeam has no choice but to pursue more business opportunities in overseas markets. To this end, it has bagged its first project in Myanmar worth $0.11 million – a painting project for the Yangon City Development Committee Staff Housing. This is a significant milestone and came on the heels of a joint venture with Nippon Paint (Singapore) Company Private Limited (“NPS”). Under the partnership, ISOTeam will be the preferred contractor for painting services in Myanmar, while NPS will supply the paint for the projects they undertake.
The Myanmar project will certainly pave the way and open more doors for ISOTeam to penetrate this emerging market. With Nippon Paint, ISOTeam has a strong partner and it will help the company to enhance its market share.
ISOTeam share price
Although not vested in this counter, I continue to like ISOTeam shares because of its upside potential. Before its announcement on winning these projects, the share price was trading at $0.31 in July 2016. Then following the announcement, the share price surged to $0.40. Given that the Group has also clinched a slew of other projects, ISOTeam shares is likely to continue to do well. According to ISOTeam, these contracts are expected to have a positive impact on the earnings per share and net tangible assets per share of the Group for the current financial year ending 30 June 2017.

My Strategy for ISOTeam
I like ISOTeam’s defensive and recurrent business model. Its growth story make a compelling case for investment and thus I will pay a premium for ISOTeam shares. Given the slew of latest contracts won, I would revise my entry-level upward and set it at $0.28.
