Cordlife excluding non-core and one-off items1, the Group’s core net profit after tax would have been S$3.4 million for 1HFY2014 versus S$4.5 million for 1HFY2013.

Cordlife near term don't look so promising,this is mainly attributable to the inclusion of the Group’s Philippines and Indian subsidiaries and Indonesian assets acquired and the Group’s efforts in ramping up educational and marketing activities in these countries to further promote customers’ awareness of the Group’s products and services so that the Group can establish a leadership position in these countries.
In addition to the above, the Group also incurred expenses in relation to restructuring of the Group’s Indian and Philippines subsidiaries subsequent to the acquisition in June 2013. Such one-time costs were incurred in order to align these entities as part of the Group


Cordlife share price is well supported by funds accumulation and comparny share buy-back. Cordlife long-term performance will depends on how well it's oversea groups perform. As for myself I had reduce my holding in Cordlife.

Cordlife's recent initiatives to expand its regional footprint:

1. Acquisition of 31.8% in Malaysia-listed StemLife during 2QFY2014

2. Acquisition of the cord blood and tissue banking businesses of ASX-listed Life Corporation Ltd in 4QFY2013. This includes its assets in India, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Indonesia.

I am expecting stronger growth as Cordlife moves past digesting its newly-acquired entities and launches new products across its expanded platform in Asia

Th Chief Executive of Cordlife said "I'm fairly confident that, ultimately, good companies will show their value. Companies with deep value need time."

Cordlife still in my watch list. The oversea expansion may take one to two year to digest.

Cordlife in November 2012 bought 10% indirect stake in NYSE- listed CCBC for US$20.8m.
This week CCBC in NYSE closed at US$5.00, this value the company at US$365m. Cordlife 10% indirect stake in CCBC is therefore value at US$36.5m. For about 1.5 years its value has increased by about 75%.

Cordlife will only perform again when it moves past digesting its newly-acquired entities and launches new products across its expanded platform in Asia. The Chief Executive of Cordlife said "I'm fairly confident that, ultimately, good companies will show their value. Companies with deep value need time."
