Introduction of Pangaea

Founded in 1990, Pangaea has been a distributor of telecom and datacom connectivity products and provides solution and application support to customers throughout their design and production cycle. In general, the Group's customers incorporate the components through design-in with its technical team and procure those components from the Group to build their communications modules and systems and IoT and network connectivity products. The end applications of the Group's products can primarily be categorised into: (i) telecom infrastructure; (ii) data centres; (iii) IoT and network connectivity products; and (iv) commercial lasers, which accounted for 68.8%, 17.3%, 11.5% and 2.3%, respectively, of the total revenue for the year ended 31 March 2020 and 77.0%, 15.9%, 6.0% and 1.0%, respectively, of the total revenue for the four months ended 31 July 2020.

 

According to Frost & Sullivan, it is market practice to have distributors as middlemen in the industry due to the diversity and complexity of the telecom and datacom connectivity industry. Being a distributor with strong inhouse design and technical capabilities, as well as self-own wireless and commercial laser application laboratories in Shenzhen, Pangaea plays an important role in the industry chain to bridge the functionality gap between upstream component manufacturers and downstream customers with technical support and value-added services. With a strong in-house design and technical team, engineering expertise and in-depth knowledge of the supply chain, the Group can provide suggestions in manufacturers' product upgrade and/or development of new products.

 

Pangaea has long term and well-established business relationships with its manufacturer suppliers, who are mainly global leading brand manufacturers in the respective products categories in the telecom and datacom connectivity market according to Frost & Sullivan. As at 22 January 2021, the Group was an authorised distributor of seven manufacturers comprising (i) five brand name manufacturers based in the U.S. or Japan for an average of 19 years; and (ii) two manufacturers based in the PRC with effect from 1 September 2020 and 1 October 2020, respectively. For the years ended 31 March 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the four months ended 31 July 2020, purchases attributable to the Group's five largest suppliers accounted for approximately 87.7%, 88.2%, 87.1% and 91.7% of its total purchase, respectively. For the same period, a substantial portion of its purchases, which accounted for approximately 88.4%, 90.1%, 89.5% and 93.4% of our total purchases, respectively, were made directly from manufacturers.

 

The Group also diligently cultivates long-term customer relationships with diversified customers, which mainly includes two leading network system equipment providers, communications module manufacturers, providers of IoT and connectivity solutions and products, and other distributors in the PRC. For each of the three years ended 31 March 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the four months ended 31 July 2020, sales to the Company's five largest customers accounted for approximately 49.1%, 40.3%, 47.9% and 64.4% of its total revenue, respectively, with sales to its largest customer accounted for approximately 17.1%, 10.6%, 17.5% and 41.5% of its total revenue, respectively.

 

The Group's revenue was approximately HK$843.1 million, HK$871.3 million, HK$970.9 million and HK$758.5 million for the years ended 31 March 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the four months ended 31 July 2020, respectively.
