chinadotcom PowerHotel Application Gains Early Acceptance from Industry

Proprietary Technology to Expand Recurrent Revenue Base
HONG KONG, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA - news; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated Internet company in Asia, today announced the recent rollout by its affiliate travel group of PowerHotel, an online application aimed at the hotel market in Greater China. Delivered over the web as an ASP (Application Services Provider), PowerHotel has seen a good early response with its initial rollout in Taiwan as over twenty major hotels and resorts in Taiwan have already signed on for service.

PowerHotel provides development tools for hotels to cost-effectively build websites accessible by travel agencies, corporate accounts and the individual traveler to search for information and make reservations. Hotels can also use PowerHotel to manage their room allotments, pricing and inventory, a welcome boost to the hotel industry`s efforts to become more efficient.

``PowerHotel is the first hotel reservation solution which combines the features of both an online booking system and marketing tool platform, which includes a web page builder, direct marketing capabilities and a customer service mailbox, while most other systems can only provide the online booking feature,`` said Rudy Chan, CEO of chinadotcom`s subsidiary hongkong.com Corporation and overseer of chinadotcom`s travel initiatives. ``Additionally, PowerHotel is very user friendly, can be up and running in three hours, and only requires non-technical customer service staff to manage, saving our customers much by way of servicing costs.``

Introduced with a traditional Chinese language interface for adoption throughout Taiwan, a later version is expected to be available soon with a simplified Chinese interface for the Mainland China market. The product`s cost effectiveness and automation of many business processes for hotels makes this an attractive solution for hoteliers in the Greater China market. The rollout of a suite of other related applications for the travel industry in the future is anticipated, particularly aimed at travel agents and the general public.

Forming an important part of chinadotcom`s overall online travel strategy, PowerHotel is expected to drive revenues through multiple sources including licensing, set up, maintenance and transaction fees. Synergies from PowerHotel are also being developed with plans to tie it more closely into the chinadotcom travel group`s other e-commerce travel products.

Dr. Raymond Ch`ien, Executive Chairman of chinadotcom, said, ``Added to the successful launch of our proprietary technology, expresso, and our recent commitment to work with Sun Microsystems to create a CRM platform, the rollout of PowerHotel is a further demonstration of our continuing drive to expand our recurrent revenue base by leveraging proprietary technology for the Asia and China markets. The Greater China travel market is showing one of the highest rate of growth in the region and PowerHotel will position us to participate in that growth.``

The Greater China travel industry, which is likely to be the fastest growing travel market with the near term potential to be the largest in the region, is set for strong growth in the coming years according to the World Travel & Tourism Council`s Year 2001 report. In 2000, the personal, business and governmental travel and tourism market in China alone amounted to approximately US$56 billion, and projections are that by 2006, that market will grow to US$97 billion.

Dacom plans rights issue to bid for telco stakes


SEOUL, March 13 (Reuters) - Dacom Corp , South Korea`s second largest fixed-line carrier, said on Wednesday it plans to raise about 100 billion won ($75.8 million) in a rights issue in April to cut debt and finance bids for stakes in rival telecoms companies.

It also announced plans to spin off its Internet unit in September and said it was discussing a tie-up with Asian Internet holding company Chinadotcom (NasdaqNM:CHINA - news).

The rights issue is expected to lower its debt-to-equity ratio to less than 150 percent this year, Chief Executive Park Un-suh told reporters.

He said the money could also finance its bids for stakes in Powercomm Inc, a cable network unit of Korea Electric Power Corp (KEPCO) , and telecoms leader KT Corp .

``Foreign investors have asked us if we can jointly bid for Powercomm and KT and we are considering the proposal,`` he said at a presentation of its 2002 Internet business plan.

KEPCO, the power monopoly, plans to re-open bidding for Powercomm in May after a February tender drew only one bidder, a consortium including Hanaro Telecom and Korea Thrunet (NasdaqNM:KOREA - news), Korea`s second and third-largest Internet service providers.

The government plans to complete the privatisation of KT, formerly Korea Telecom, by selling a 28.4 percent stake by June.

Dacom shares finished unchanged at 27,750 won versus a 0.37 percent rise in the broader market .

CHOLLIAN SPIN-OFF

Park said Dacom began to post earnings before taxes in the fourth quarter of last year and its 2002 target of 33 billion won in net profit on sales of 1.2 trillion won were attainable.

Dacom`s net loss narrowed 26 percent to 68.8 billion won in 2001, helped by the sale of non-core business units and job cuts.

He said Dacom would spin off its Internet unit Chollian in September. The unit is an Internet service provider and Web site operator.

``Chollian began to post an operating profit in October and will be able to post an annual profit next year,`` said Roh Soon-seok, senior vice president of the Chollian business group.

He said Dacom expects sales from Chollian to decline by 16 percent to 61 billion won in 2002 as it plans to disconnect non-paying subscribers.

But he said paying subscribers to Chollian would rise to 2.5 million by the end of this year from the current one million, helped by improved online services, which include granting email accounts with unlimited data storage space.

TIES WITH CHINADOTCOM

Park said Dacom is discussing a tie-up with Asian Internet holding company Chinadotcom that could result in an entertainment Web site.

``We have in principle agreed with Chinadotcom to forge a strategic alliance,`` he said. ``If a deal is struck, we may be able to set up a Korea Chinadotcom, which can provide a variety of entertainment-related content over the Internet.``

Dacom officials would sit down for talks on Monday in Shanghai.

chinadotcom e-marketing Arm Expands Precision Marketing Offering
Acquisition Highlights Further Commitment to IP Development
HONG KONG, May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA - news; http://www.corp.china.com) today announced that its e-marketing arm, MEZZO Marketing, had acquired 100% of a leading Australian business-to-business marketing firm, known as IncNet.

"We are very pleased to announce this acquisition, as it further demonstrates chinadotcom`s commitment to work with companies that own their intellectual property, have a solid track record of performance, high margins -- for this deal, over 70% gross margins and 20% net margins -- and have significant strategic value to our business units," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom corporation.

While the financial effect of the IncNet purchase to chinadotcom`s group of operations as a whole is small, this acquisition is reflective of chinadotcom`s strategy to acquire companies with their own intellectual property and also builds on the November 2000 acquisition of RNR International Marketing in Australia.

"Through this acquisition, we foresee solid benefits by way of integrating data management technologies, joint go-to-market strategies and leveraging the skill base of the two companies for improved fiscal performance. Additionally, IncNet`s extensive network of reseller partners in Australia and New Zealand is a valuable channel for the resale of our proprietary expresso technology," explained Stuart Spiteri, Chief Operating Officer of MEZZO Marketing. "With a sizeable e-data marketing opportunity `Down Under`, we in turn also get a small company that is already profitable with stable management and strong current business relationships."

"IncNet`s data building and management capabilities have enabled them to build an extensive database of quality intellectual property that is critical to precision marketing. Furthermore, IncNet`s long time regular users including Citibank, Drake International, AC Neilsen and IBM, provide broader integrated campaign possibilities when combined with MEZZO Marketing`s interactive capabilities, expresso email technology and its existing Australian call center operation. We are very happy to include IncNet`s quality customers and data to our pool of data, now over 17 million records owned or under management," cited Stuart Spiteri.

"According to the Commercial Economic Advisory Service of Australia, the Australian direct marketing industry amounted to US$ 8 billion in 2000 and is expected to continue growth of 15% per annum," said Tony Johnson, General Manager of IncNet. "The integration with MEZZO Marketing will enable us to provide integrated marketing services, particularly the expresso email and customer management technology to our clients and strengthen our market position in the industry."

chinadotcom Q1 2002 Net Loss Narrows by 71% y-y
Acquisitions broaden service offerings

chinadotcom`s Q1 2002 Results Highlights:
* Q1 2002 net loss fell 71% year-over-year versus Q1 2001 and 38% versus Q4 2001 to US$8.0 million.
* Q1 2002 cash operating loss* was US$6.6 million, a 73% improvement from US$24.5 million year-over-year.
* In line with previous guidance, Q1 2002 revenues of US$16.4 million were down 8% versus Q4 2001 on the back of harsh economic conditions and the extended Chinese New Year and Easter Holiday periods.
* Mainland China revenues were 23% of Q1 2002 revenue compared to 16% a year ago.
* Two strategic acquisitions to broaden service offerings.
* An adjustment of US$2.77 million in additional impairment of goodwill and intangible assets was recorded in Q4 2001 results, resulting in total impairment of US$40.7 million for the full year 2001. The charge has no impact on the company`s cash operating results (see Other Developments below).

HONG KONG, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA - News; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated Internet company in Asia, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2002. The company continues to make progress as net loss under US GAAP narrowed by 71% from a year ago and 38% compared to the previous quarter to US$8.0 million, representing the third consecutive quarter of improvement. Q1 2002 loss per share was US$0.08 versus $0.27 in Q1 2001.

In line with previous guidance, chinadotcom posted revenue of US$16.4 million in Q1 2002 compared to US$17.8 million in the previous quarter affected by a challenging economic environment and the extended Chinese New Year and Easter Holiday periods.

Looking ahead, current indications suggest a modest improvement in revenue and gross margins for the second quarter driven by organic growth as well as the contribution from recent acquisitions.

Q1 2002 cash operating loss was US$6.6 million, down 73% from a year ago, on the back of significant improvement in cost control, as SG&A was reduced by 62% over Q1 2001 to US$12.4 million.

"We are pleased to report continued progress across our operations," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom. "We have worked hard on getting our business to its current state. Although market conditions remain challenging and demand for IT products and services remains weak, we are now seeing signs of a stronger business pipeline, and, enhanced by our recent acquisitions, we should be well positioned to improve our operating metrics going forward."

During the quarter, the company continued the purchase of its shares pursuant to its US$20 million stock repurchase program that was announced in September 2001. The company reiterates that this is a long-term program and reflects the company`s confidence in its future and business growth prospects in China and the Asia Pacific region.

The information presented in the results highlights herein should be read in conjunction with the more detailed financial statements included at the end of this press release.

Strategic Acquisitions

chinadotcom is continuing to execute its strategy of becoming one of the leading providers of enterprise solutions, in the Asia Pacific region, in order to capitalize on the growing demand by enterprises across the region, particularly in China, to utilize enterprise solutions to raise efficiency, automate business processes and optimize revenue potential. In line with this strategy, chinadotcom completed the acquisition of a majority stake in OpusOne Technologies International Inc. and IncNet.

OpusOne is an established developer of business management software solutions for state enterprises and multi-national corporations in Greater China. One of the leading products developed by OpusOne is OpusOne PowerHRP, a Human Resources & Payroll Management software solution that is localized for the Mainland China market with a simplified Chinese interface and meets the various tax, statutory benefits and administrative requirements of different Mainland China provinces. This customized product has helped OpusOne PowerHRP gain market share and brand recognition among numerous companies with over 350 site installations throughout Greater China. Customers include Swire Beverages, Shanghai GM and Legend Computer.

IncNet is one of the leading database marketing firms in Australia with a database containing one of the most comprehensive sources of Australia`s top 30,000 companies. The self developed database and the management methodologies are unique in the market and have been widely used by well-known multi-national clients including Citibank, Drake International, AC Neilsen and IBM in Australia and New Zealand. This strategic acquisition, while small in terms of its effect on chinadotcom`s financial results, expands MEZZO`s service offering.

These investments have important strategic value and will serve to further expand chinadotcom`s existing portfolio of enterprise solutions. Conversely, chinadotcom will offer these companies significant value with respect to strategic initiatives, business development opportunities and a platform for long-term growth. Both Ion Global and e2e Business Solutions have become additional distribution channels for OpusOne while IncNet`s extensive network of reseller partners in Australia and New Zealand is a valuable channel for the resale of MEZZO`s service offerings.

"Where we see opportunities, we will continue to develop our existing portfolio of enterprise solutions that can strategically broaden our business mix and drive high margin and recurrent revenue," said Peter Yip, Chief Executive Officer of chinadotcom. "These acquisitions also provide opportunities for joint sales calls, the sharing of market intelligence and cross platform product developments enabling us to achieve our long-term goal of becoming one of leading providers of enterprise solutions in Asia-Pacific."

Business Units

Ion Global, Asia`s leading e-business integrator, maintained a firm revenue base during the quarter despite continued weakness in the business environment. Cash operating loss narrowed by 19% quarter-over-quarter as the company realized further cost savings. During the quarter, over 82% of revenue was generated from repeat customers as Ion Global continues to work closely with a strong base of global clients including Cathay Pacific, DaimlerChrysler (Taiwan), GE, HSBC, Sony and Cisco Systems. ABN-AMRO Bank, Marriott Hotel Singapore, Haier Group and Guangzhou Honda were some of the newly secured clients in the first quarter.

Ion Global continues to capitalize on its unique network organization by leveraging its China capabilities into new client wins and partnerships. On the back of the company`s successful win of a two-year contract from the United Kingdom Government`s Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Ion Global has been selected as the preferred vendor for the next three years by another UK Government agency.

chinadotcom`s e-solutions arm, e2e Business Solutions, continues to make steady progress with its Software Development Center (SDC) in Beijing as part of the company`s focus on proprietary enterprise software applications for SMEs and Multinationals particularly in Mainland China. One of the first products from this SDC will be an Internet-based technology platform automating Customer Relationship Management (CRM) processes especially tailored for Mainland China. A number of potential customers have already expressed interest in this product.

MEZZO Marketing posted a strong performance with its fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth although e-marketing as a whole saw a decline in revenue by 7% sequentially. MEZZO`s revenue per headcount continued to show improvements, increasing by 11% and cash operating loss reduced 66% quarter- on-quarter. Non-advertising revenue, comprising of direct-marketing and technology revenue, doubled during the quarter to 9% of MEZZO`s revenue, reflecting new customers such as Qinghua University, Diners Club, Mitsubishi, Sun Microsystems, IKEA China, and the New South Wales Government, among others. In addition, MEZZO continued ongoing multi-country relationships with Citibank, Samsung and Johnson & Johnson.

Demonstrating its industry leadership, MEZZO announced the findings of an audit of its privacy practices in March 2002, the first of its kind in Asia, as conducted by PriceWaterhouseCoopers over a 3-month period, examining the internal controls over those aspects of information privacy practices for consumers` personally identifiable information collected or managed by MEZZO.

chinadotcom`s portals continued to develop and introduce subscription services based on the strength of its well-recognized domain names china.com, taiwan.com and hongkong.com. The China team`s entry into the World Cup Finals generated positive interest from users as well as from enterprises. Various content channels, SMS/Interactive games and promotional packages with World Cup themes were launched during the quarter. chinadotcom`s wireless initiatives are still in the early stages of development and the company continues to evaluate its full potential.

"We continue to execute to our game plan and believe that we are on the right track with these earning accretive acquisitions," said Raymond Ch`ien, Executive Chairman of chinadotcom. "What is paramount for us at this stage is to step up our focus on securing strategic acquisitions that will provide a foundation for our long-term growth. The current state of our business places us in a favorable position to continue with this strategy."

Other Developments

With regard to the company`s treasury program, which consists principally of investment grade debt securities, the value of its debt instruments will continue to be assessed on a quarterly basis in accordance with US GAAP. Where any declines in market value are deemed `other than temporary`, the company will recognize such declines as losses in its statement of operations. The market value of the company`s treasury portfolio fluctuates, and to date, declines in market value have been recorded in the balance sheet under Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.

An adjustment has been made to the previously released Q4 2001 and full year 2001 financial results, reflecting the ongoing conservative policy towards the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. Upon further review, the company has recorded additional impairment of goodwill and intangible assets of US$2.77 million in Q4 2001, to a total of US$40.7 million for the full year 2001. As a result, the net loss of the company for both Q4 2001 and for the full year 2001 has been increased by US$2.77 million. As indicated in the company`s attached financial statements, Q4 2001 net loss has been adjusted to US$12.97 million, as compared to the previously reported US$10.2 million loss, while the full year 2001 net loss has increased to US$124.4 million from the previously reported US$121.6 million loss. This adjustment is below the cash operating line and the cash operating results of the company remain unchanged.

Conference Call

chinadotcom will hold a conference call to review its first quarter 2002 earnings and operations at 4:00 pm on May 14, 2002 Hong Kong time. Investors can call at that time to Toll Free 888-390-6586, US Toll Number: 712-271-3300, or Hong Kong Number: 852-2258-4100; alternatively the conference call can be heard on the Internet at http://webcast.ibeam.com/starthere.asp?pres=19255 .

HONG KONG, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA - News; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2002 under US GAAP. Net loss narrowed by 86% from a year ago to US$8.0 million, the same as compared to the previous quarter. Q2 2002 loss per share was US$0.08 versus $0.08 in Q1 2002 and US$0.57 in Q2 2001. ADVERTISEMENT




chinadotcom posted revenue of US$15.2 million in Q2 2002, down 7% compared to US$16.4 million in Q1 2002. Previous expectations for Q2 2002 revenues included certain consulting project revenues which we now expect to record in Q3 2002. Gross margin of 33% was US$5.0 million, down from 35%, or US$5.8 million in Q1 2002, primarily relating to ongoing price pressure in the on-line advertising network business. SG&A expenses for Q2 2002 were US$11.1 million, down 11% compared to US$12.4 million in the previous quarter and 62% lower than US$29.0 million a year ago. The company is working towards further reduction in recurrent quarterly SG&A expenses to single digit levels going forward. As a result of this further improvement in cost control Q2 2002 cash operating loss was US$6.2 million, down from US$6.6 million in Q1 2002 and down 74% from a year ago.

"Despite persistent weak market conditions, we have made progress during the quarter in positioning ourselves for an eventual upturn in economic conditions," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom. "At the same time as continuing to control operating expenses and maintaining our current cash levels, we have been working to move up the value curve through the introduction of more higher-margin products that we have either developed internally, added through acquisition, or through partnerships.

The information presented in the results highlights herein should be read in conjunction with the more detailed financial statements included at the end of this press release.

Evolution towards a broader base of higher margin products and services

The company has made progress in its strategic re-positioning and continues to push its evolution towards a broader base of higher margin products and services. The company has progressed in the last quarter with several new additions to its current 400 plus installations, including Microsoft, A C Nielsen and Swire Beverage. Its five-year established software development center in China is currently developing products for use on the "Microsoft .Net" platform.

chinadotcom views China as a promising base for lower-cost development of software products for distribution, implementation and integration by its own operations across its markets internationally, enabling the company to better scale its costs to make it competitive in the mid-tier software market. In addition, the company is continuing to develop partnerships with major software companies, focusing on securing Greater China and international master distributorships for such companies across various markets. The push up the value curve is also being achieved through securing longer-term contracts with major enterprises as well as governments across our key markets.

The integration of the B2B marketing database with the existing marketing offering in Australia has progressed during the quarter. Resultant operational gains include reduced ongoing database maintenance costs and office consolidation. The B2B database offering has been enhanced and sales cross-pollination with the existing marketing services business achieved. Opportunities to work more closely with the technology services business in Australia have also been identified, particularly in the area of e-mail marketing.

"Where we see opportunities, we will continue to develop our existing portfolio of enterprise solutions that can strategically broaden our business mix and drive longer term, high margin and recurrent revenue," said Peter Yip, Chief Executive Officer of chinadotcom. "The combination of these products and services provides opportunities for joint sales calls, the sharing of market intelligence and cross platform product developments enabling us to achieve our long-term goal of becoming one of the leading providers of enterprise solutions in Asia-Pacific."


Progress in Our Operations

* Technology Services


chinadotcom`s e-solutions continues to show improvement in building its base of long-term, recurring work derived from its application outsourcing business and government services practice. Further cost savings were achieved in SG&A. Our e-solutions subsidiary signed a second large UK government agency, the Department of Land Registry, to a multi-year relationship while also being named recently to the UK Central Office of Information roster -- a select list of pre-approved service partners that UK government agencies work with. Other major client activity included new work with ING Barings, continuing work with Cathay Pacific and the resumption of projects for Emirates Airlines.

Marketing & Media Services
The company continued its efforts during the quarter to better align its e-marketing services with its e-solutions businesses. In several markets, the company`s e-marketing operating infrastructure has now been shared with chinadotcom`s e-solutions operations, resulting in ongoing cost savings. In China, the company recently accelerated the rescaling of its low-margin on- line advertising network business in order to improve that operation. In certain markets, chinadotcom has ceased its funding of e-marketing units in the past 18 months and will continue to review the prospects of its ongoing operations. Within the segment, the Korean operation posted a strong performance on the back of increased marketing associated with the successful World Cup soccer tournament.

The drive to diversify the service offering through increasing non on-line advertising revenues, such as direct-marketing and e-mail technology revenue, saw progress as such revenues increased from 9% to 12%, with higher gross margins of over 60%. New clients include BankWest, Time Inc., and American Express. In addition, our e-marketing entity continued ongoing relationships with Samsung and Johnson & Johnson.

hongkong.com introduced Hong Kong`s first web-based paid e-mail service during the quarter and an enhanced SMS and e-Coupon service was also launched. Performance at chinadotcom`s travel business improved and it was appointed as event organizer/official publication/official daily for several major travel trade events for the rest of the year and into 2003.

Software Products
The company has introduced a series of new human resources management products developed along with the existing PowerHRP (Human Resources Payroll) module, including Power ATS (Attendance Tracking System), PowerPay+ and PowerESS (Employee Self Service). Through coordinated sales and marketing efforts the company has secured multiple wins for its PowerHRP management software in China. Since introduction, these products have been licensed to multinational and local enterprises. For instance, the five-star hotel, J.C. Mandarin in Shanghai has licensed the ATS solution that enables it to track all employee rostering and shift information gathered from the digital swipe card machine on the premises of the hotel.

chinadotcom`s e-solutions arm continues to make progress with its Software Development Center (SDC) in Beijing as part of the company`s focus on proprietary enterprise software applications for local enterprises and multinationals particularly in Mainland China. One of the first products from this SDC will be an Internet-based technology platform automating Customer Relationship Management (CRM) processes especially tailored for Mainland China. A number of potential customers have already expressed interest in this product.

"What is paramount for us at this stage is to step up our focus on developing and offering a broad base of higher-margin business services and software products that will provide a foundation for our long-term growth," said Raymond Ch`ien, Executive Chairman of chinadotcom. "Current market trends, in addition to the strength of our balance sheet, place us in a favorable position to maintain this strategy, with the aim of becoming the pre-eminent integrated Asian enterprise solutions company."

Other Developments

With regard to the company`s treasury program, as a result of the strong performance of bond prices in the last quarter, the mark to market impact on the company`s treasury portfolio recorded on the balance sheet has reduced from a loss of US$10.1 million at the end of Q1 2002 to a gain of US$1.8 million at the end of Q2 2002. The company has also reduced its exposure to market risk by reducing the average term and improving the credit quality of its treasury instruments, recording a realized loss of US$2.6 million in Q2 2002. The company is now engaged in the process of outsourcing some or all of its treasury portfolio to professional outside managers. The company believes that outsourcing its portfolio will provide a greater breadth and depth of resources to be dedicated to the management of its cash.

To date, the company has fully repaid its short-term credit facilities, resulting in a strong, unencumbered balance sheet. The company maintains access to two credit facilities that are available for working capital, short- term liquidity issues and acquisitions.

"In light of a challenging quarter financially and operationally and a lack of current visibility regarding the timing of a global economic recovery, my team is prepared to take further aggressive steps to achieve profitability and increase shareholder value." Peter Yip, Chief Executive Officer, said, "We will look to build our base of higher-margin software products and services, as well as further rationalize non-performing or low-margin businesses. Loss of revenues on the top line is likely in the near term but we believe that a profitable company will be the eventual result. As such, we believe we are continuing to better position the company, and we look forward to the future with confidence."

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2002 11:34 PM
- PR Newswire

HONG KONG, Oct 16, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today provided an update on its share repurchase program. chinadotcom announced its long term share repurchase program in September 2001 and has proceeded to buy shares on a regular basis since that time. In accordance with the company`s buyback policy and subject to regulatory as well as market volume limitations, to date the company has purchased approximately 1.74 million common shares for an aggregate purchase value of US$4.4 million.

Depending on market conditions and other factors, repurchases may be made from time to time in the open market and in negotiated transactions, including block transactions, and may be discontinued at any time. As of October 16, 2002, chinadotcom has approximately 102.7 million common shares outstanding. This number includes the 1.74 million repurchased shares which are pending cancellation.

Peter Yip, Chief Executive Officer of chinadotcom corporation, said, "We believe this stock repurchase program reflects our confidence in our business and is in the best interests of our shareholders. We will continue to prudently acquire our company shares at values below the per share cash levels, while keeping in mind the need to preserve cash overall for investment in the long term company future. Despite the difficult market environment we remain optimistic about the long term future of our business and will continue working hard to improve our operating performance going forward."

chinadotcom Q3 2002 Revenues Increase 6% and Net Loss Narrows by 58% q-q
Friday November 8, 5:39 am ET

Company focuses on broad-based software initiatives and continued IP-related investments
chinadotcom`s Q3 2002 Results Highlights:
* Q3 2002 revenues increased 6% to US$16.1 million over the last quarter despite a challenging operating environment.
* Q3 2002 net loss fell 58% to US$3.3 million quarter-over-quarter, the best company performance in 9 quarters.
* The company established a new software division, CDC Software, to further develop proprietary software, to form strategic relationships with leading software vendors and to offer its own Software Development Center`s capabilities as an outsourcing conduit.
* The company maintained its strong balance sheet position with an increase of 2% in net cash and cash equivalents, the second consecutive quarter of growth.


HONG KONG, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2002 under US GAAP. The company reported a sequential growth of 6% in quarterly revenues, although on a year to year basis revenues fell by 7% compared to 3Q 2001. However, this was more than offset by a 42% reduction in SG&A year on year from US$21.8 million in Q3 2001 to US$12.6 million in Q3 2002. As a result, cash operating loss fell 52% year on year to US$7.6 million, from US$15.9 million in Q3 2001, while net loss narrowed by 87% to US$3.3 million from US$24.8 million a year ago. Q3 2002 loss per share was US$0.03 versus US$0.24 in Q3 2001, an improvement of 87%.
For Q3 2002, revenue rose 6% to US$16.1 million compared to US$15.2 million in Q2 2002. Gross margin of 31% was US$4.9 million, down from 33%, or US$5.0 million in Q2 2002, primarily relating to ongoing price pressure in technology services and the on-line advertising network business. SG&A expenses rose 14% in Q3 2002 to US$12.6 million versus US$11.1 million in Q2 2002, including US$2.7 million of one-time restructuring costs and other provisions. Excluding one-time items for both quarters, recurrent SG&A fell 8% to US$9.9 million from US$10.8 million in Q2 2002. As a result of the one- time provisions, Q3 2002 cash operating loss rose to US$7.6 million, up from US$6.2 million in Q2 2002. Q3 2002 net loss fell 58% to US$3.3 million quarter-over-quarter, the best company performance in 9 quarters.

"Despite difficult market conditions, we have continued to make progress posting our best financial performance in over 2 years and another quarter with an increased net cash position," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom. "Yet we anticipate that due to our ongoing restructuring and departure from the on-line network advertising business our current revenue base may not be sustained in the short term, and that the mix of revenues will trend further towards software related categories in future. We believe that the development and sales of higher-margin software products puts the company in a better position toward reaching our long term restructuring goals."

The information presented in the results highlights herein should be read in conjunction with the more detailed financial statements included at the end of this press release.

Establishment of CDC Software and continued IP-related initiatives

During the quarter, the company established a new division -- CDC Software Corporation, as part of its evolution towards a broader base of recurrent revenue and higher-margin products and services.

UPDATE - Chinadotcom posts first-ever profit on gains
Wednesday February 12, 10:43 pm ET
By Juliana Liu and Eric Auchard


(Adds quotes, details)
BEIJING/NEW YORK, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Internet services firm Chinadotcom Corp (NasdaqNM:CHINA - News) reported its first ever quarterly profit on Thursday at least two quarters ahead of schedule, largely as a result of interest income and other gains.

ADVERTISEMENT


The move into the black, although aided by non-operating gains, marked a milestone for the nascent Chinese industry as Chinadotcom became the last of the four U.S.-listed Chinese Internet media companies to turn a profit.

The Hong Kong-based company, which develops software and runs an Internet portal, said in a statement its fourth-quarter net income was $1.2 million compared with a net loss of $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2002.

The firm did not provide comparative fourth-quarter 2001 figures, but said last February it made a loss of $10.2 million during that period.

Fourth-quarter revenue was $15.72 million, up just two percent from the third quarter`s $15.48 million.

For 2002 as a whole, revenues dipped eight percent to $59.3 million from $64.5 million in 2001, a drop the company said was in line with its previous guidance.

"U.S. GAAP profitability achieved, now sustained profitability is the target," chief executive Peter Yip told investors in a conference call, referring to accepted accounting standards.

The latest quarter`s results benefited from interest income of $4.78 million, up from $4.36 million in the third quarter of 2002.

It also sold assets for $545,000 and recognised non-operating gains of $995,000 versus $107,000 in the third quarter, further boosting the bottom line, the statement said.

On that basis, it posted profits three quarters ahead of forecasts from two analysts surveyed by Multex Global Estimates, who predicted an average loss of four cents per share.

CHEAP SOFTWARE OUTSOURCING

The company, which bought firms around the Pacific Rim during the Internet boom, was forced to halve its staff and cut costs over the past two years.

Chief Financial Officer Daniel Widdicombe said it was making a transition to writing software for other firms, reflecting a shift last year away from consulting and its dot-com Internet media business.

"It is going to take time for our software and outsourcing strategy to bear fruit, and so we expect any growths in revenue in the coming quarter would be gradual rather than exponential," he told investors.

Yip said the firm could produce software in Shanghai for 25 to 30 percent less than its competitors in India.

The profit trend among Chinese Internet companies including Sohu.com (NasdaqNM:SOHU - News), Sina.com (NasdaqNM:SINA - News), NetEase (NasdaqNM:NTES - News) and now Chinadotcom sparked a small-scale replay of the stock boom that collapsed elsewhere in the world three years ago.

Since August, all four saw their share prices soar several hundred percent before settling back some in the past month.

But despite the eye-popping rises, the companies remain small-market-capitalisation Nasdaq stocks with little following among U.S. financial analysts.

Shares in Chinadotcom, which closed down five percent, or 17 cents, at $3.12 ahead of the report, rebounded after the results. They rose 10 percent to $3.42 in after-hours trading, still a far cry from the $78 hit in March 2000.

The firm said it had bought back 6.23 million shares worth around $15.6 million, or 78 percent of its planned $20 million share repurchase programme announced in September 2001, and may conduct further buybacks or block trades in the future.

chinadotcom Unit Completes Acquisition of Newpalm
Thursday April 3, 7:17 am ET
- Financials of Newpalm to be consolidated in Q2 2003 earnings, expected to add over US$2.5 million of high-margin, earnings-accretive revenues to the group for the quarter - Planned integration with chinadotcom`s portal network developing additional services to its subscribers and providing strategic fits to its portal business - Acquisition adds over 3 million paid-up subscribers to the company`s portal network


HONG KONG, April 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA; website: www.corp.china.com), the leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Newpalm (China) Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("Newpalm"), a leading short message service (SMS) mobile software platform developer and application service provider in China, through its mobile applications and portal arm and 81%-owned subsidiary, hongkong.com Corporation. Cash consideration of US$14 million has been paid with remaining consideration to be paid on an earn-out basis over the next two years. It is expected that the full second quarter financial contribution of Newpalm will be included within chinadotcom`s consolidated financial results for Q2 2003.

Since the signing of the initial acquisition agreement in March this year, Newpalm has shown significant progress in terms of growth of subscriber base. In March 2003, Newpalm has added over 300,000 new paid-up subscribers to an aggregate of over 3 million, representing a 10% increase over the previous month and a 40% growth rate over the level at the end of December 2002. Leveraging on the online expertise and resources of chinadotcom, chinadotcom plans to integrate Newpalm into its portal network to develop additional services such as news channels and interactive games. In addition, the acquisition of Newpalm should further strengthen and broaden chinadotcom`s existing portal community services such as e-Match and Love Skyby integrating Newpalm`s popular X-City service. More integration between Newpalm and chinadotcom`s portal network is expected in the near future.

"We are pleased to see a healthy trend of continued subscriber growth at Newpalm. While there is no assurance that the current growth rates can be maintained or that the identified synergies will come to the fore, we are nevertheless excited about the addition of Newpalm into the chinadotcom group," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom corporation. "The completion of the acquisition in early April this year should allow us to consolidate the entire Q2 2003 financial result of Newpalm. This is expected to bring more than US$2.5 million in additional high-margin, earnings-accretive revenues to the chinadotcom group for the quarter."

Newpalm has direct connections with local network operators in 22 provinces in China, with a strong presence in Shandong, Zhejiang and Jiangsu Provinces and service coverage throughout the country. Newpalm has principally developed its own intellectual property of mobile applications and products compatible with GSM and CDMA networks based on an open-architecture technology platform that supports SMS and MMS (Multi-Media Message Service) and allows rapid capacity expansion. In addition, Newpalm runs two R&D (Research and Development) centers, in Beijing and Nanjing, with over 40 professional application developers.

"We anticipate that the planned integration of Newpalm with our portal network will further strengthen our portal market position in China and will allow us to develop additional services and products to our subscribers", said Rudy Chan, Chief Executive Office of hongkong.com Corporation. "Given the recent fast growing SMS business in China, we see great potential in this market place and we believe our track record in China, coupled with Newpalm`s mobile application technology and established customer base will help us gain traction in this arena in the long term."

Die Aktie der Chinadotcom Corporation (ISIN KYG2108N1097/ WKN 924123) wird von den Experten vom Börsenbrief "Emerging Markets Investor" nach wie vor zum Kauf empfohlen. Die Performance sei angesichts der Hausse chinesischer Internetwerte nur unterdurchschnittlich. Die Experten von "Emerging Markets Investor" halten China.com für den am kalkulierbarsten und solidesten Wert im Vergleich zu anderen Titeln der Branche. Das profitabel arbeitende Unternehmen gebe es quasi umsonst. Die aktuelle Marktkapitalisierung von 400 Millionen USD entspreche gerade einmal dem Bargeldbestand. Das eigentliche Unternehmen werde am Markt nicht bewertet. Bereits im vierten Quartal des Vorjahres habe China.com die Gewinnzone erreicht und damit deutlich früher als erwartet. Zudem arbeite der Vorstandsvorsitzende Peter Yip seit Jahren im Interesse der Gesellschaft und das ohne Bezüge. Sein Familien-Clan habe jüngst 4,3 Millionen Aktien am freien Markt gekauft. Die Experten von "Emerging Markets Investor" empfehlen daher den unverzüglichen Kauf von China.com-Aktien.
Bei der Tochter Hongkong.com ging es heute mächtig bergauf:

"Die Aktie schliesst mit +27,536% bei 0,440 HKD

[Hong Kong May 07, 2003] chinadotcom corporation (NASDAQ: CHINA; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated enterprise software and solutions company in Asia, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2003 ending March 31, 2003 under US GAAP. The company reported a 6% growth in revenues from continuing operations in Q1 2003 to US$15.4 million. Gross profit in Q1 2003 was US$5.4 million, up from US$5.2 million in Q4 2002, while the gross margin remained stable at 35%.

As of March 31, 2003, chinadotcom had approximately 99.3 million common shares outstanding.


On a year to year basis from continuing operations, revenues increased by 26% to US$15.4 million compared to Q1 2002. SG&A year on year continued to fall from US$10.3 million in Q1 2002 to a single digit of US$6.9 million in Q1 2003.

"We are pleased to report a second sequential quarter of profit in a quarter of consolidation for the company," said Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom corporation. "The improvement in revenues, gross profit and net income are encouraging as the company positions itself to execute on its strategy of attaining sustainable high-margin, recurrent revenues."


The information presented in the results highlights herein should be read in conjunction with the more detailed financial statements included at the end of this press release.


Peter Yip, Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to have completed two earnings-accretive acquisitions so far this year, Praxa and Newpalm, and are now building up our outsourcing capability with an India-based JV. During the past few quarters we have established a healthier business platform into which we will integrate these complementary new operations. We are on target in scaling back and restructuring non-performing parts of our business, and are well positioned to take advantage of our existing infrastructure to make further progress in future."


Continued Momentum in Our Software Strategy

To enhance its software solutions targeted at the process manufacturing industry, CDC Software has recently signed a Master Distributor Agreement with Ross Systems Inc. [NASDAQ: ROSS; Website: www.rossinc.com] ("Ross"), a global supplier of enterprise software solutions designed specifically for manufacturers in the process manufacturing industry. The distribution agreement is for Ross`s Enterprise Resources Planning ("ERP") product - iRenaissance - for Greater China, including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, as well as the territories of Singapore, Thailand, Korea, and Australia/New Zealand. CDC Software will leverage the expertise of its low cost software development center in China as well as its domain knowledge in the process manufacturing industry to localize the iRenaissance software product to meet local language and statutory requirements. CDC Software has achieved considerable success with Best Software Inc.`s BatchMasterPFW process manufacturing product, making iRenaissance a natural extension to BatchMasterPFW, as it targets the larger process manufacturers that typically require the more comprehensive and broader functionality offered by iRenaissance. In addition, CDC Software will support iRenaissance from its regional Support Centers located in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and will be responsible for sourcing, appointing and managing a distribution channel of partners to sell and service customers throughout the territory.

The company also continued its strategy of moving up the value curve through entering strategic partnerships with leading software vendors and channel partners such as Best Software Inc. During the quarter, the company signed a new distribution agreement with Best Software Inc., which expands the sales territory of Best`s Platinum For Windows and BatchMasterPFW products beyond its existing China and Hong Kong markets. Under this agreement, the company is also authorized to sell these products in the territories of Singapore, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Taiwan. This agreement further strengthens the relationship between the two companies and it is expected to eventually bring additional new and recurring revenues through sales of software licenses, annual maintenance fees and related services. In February this year, the company also signed a Master Developers Agreement with Best Software which includes full access to the source code for the various Best software products that it is representing. Under this agreement, CDC Software will own the IP (intellectual property) rights relating to any customized program modules developed by it in the region.

During the quarter, the company`s hospitality-focused business software solutions were selected by Starwood Hotels and Resorts for another of its newly opened hotels in Southern China. Unilever also chose the company`s software products as its preferred human resources and payroll software for its operations in China.




Building Low-cost China- and India-based Outsourcing Services for Global Clients


The acquisition of Praxa Limited ("Praxa"), a leading Australian IT outsourcing and professional services organization, was completed in February this year. Praxa contributed two months of operating results, including revenues of US$3.4 million, to the chinadotcom group`s consolidated first quarter results. In the initial period after the acquisition of Praxa into the company`s operations, the focus has been on consolidating Praxa`s existing projects, expanding its sales force and business development activities, and fine-tuning the operating expenses of the company. Praxa is expected to add significant synergies to chinadotcom`s outsourcing platform and plans to use chinadotcom`s China-based outsourcing center for elements of its workflow.


After the quarter, chinadotcom announced a 51% owned joint venture ("JV") partnership with vMoksha Technologies ("vMoksha"), a fast growing offshore IT outsourcing company headquartered in Bangalore, India, to further strengthen chinadotcom`s software outsourcing capabilities in Asia and broaden its IT outsourcing service offerings to global clients. This JV is expected to take a large role in driving the IT outsourcing synergies within the group and provide a solid foundation for the company to serve its existing clients in Australia, the U.S. and the U.K. as well as future global clients. vMoksha has a proven capability in offshore outsourcing services, made up of product engineering, product migration, package implementation, remote maintenance and support. The service offerings to be provided through the JV are designed to offer potential clients an unbeatable value proposition of competitive pricing, domain expertise, depth of package knowledge combined with proven delivery capability and skills along with high quality management. In addition, chinadotcom expects to improve the software development process of its software development center in China through the JV by leveraging upon vMoksha`s use of CMMI compliant processes.


Adding Mobile and Gaming Services to Its Portal Network


In early April 2003, the company completed its acquisition of Newpalm (China) Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("Newpalm"), a leading SMS mobile software platform developer and application service provider in China, through its 81%-owned subsidiary, hongkong.com Corporation. Cash consideration of US$14 million has been paid, with the remainder to be paid on an earn-out basis over the next two years. Beginning in Q2 2003, Newpalm`s results will be consolidated in the company`s financial results. Since the acquisition, Newpalm has continued to show progress in terms of growth of subscriber base. It added over 200,000 new paid-up subscribers in April 2003, to an aggregate of over 3.25 million. Leveraging upon chinadotcom`s online expertise and resources, the company plans to extend Newpalm`s SMS services to its portal network and develop additional services such as news channels and interactive games.


Newpalm has direct connections with local mobile network operators in 22 provinces in China. It has nationwide service coverage, but a particularly strong presence in Shandong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Henan Provinces. Direct connections with local mobile operators increases the completion rate of SMS messages as well as the marketing impact of new products and services in each provincial market.


During the quarter, chinadotcom`s mobile and portal unit beta tested an interactive online game website, www.thesa.com.cn, which was developed in partnership with a Korean online game developer. This interactive online game allows thousands of players to play simultaneously on the same platform on a subscription basis. Initial feedback is promising and it is hoped that this can provide meaningful revenues to the company in the future.


Other Developments


The company has seen some impact from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS in its operations, mainly in China, Hong Kong and Singapore. Risks associated with SARS include reduction in consulting project and advertising revenues, as well as reduction of SMS marketing budgets by mobile network operators in China, which could reduce the growth rate of Newpalm`s subscribers. Other businesses such as software and IT outsourcing may be disrupted as well, if its clients, suppliers or partners or the company itself suffer temporarily as a result of public health related measures. Internally, the company has implemented travel rules and flexible work-at-home practice to safeguard the health of its employees. The situation with SARS could deteriorate or improve in a very short time.


Also after the quarter, the company served David Moore, former director of chinadotcom and CEO of 24/7 Real Media, Inc, with a writ with respect to proceedings initiated against Mr. Moore in Hong Kong. The proceedings allege that Mr. Moore breached various fiduciary duties, allowed conflicts of interest to affect his decisions with regard to the company and violated the company`s insider trading policy in relation to his directorship of the company.


Of the long term share repurchase program of up to US$20 million announced in September 2001, as at the end of March 2003 the company has currently repurchased approximately 6.23 million shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase value of US$15.6 million, completing approximately 78% of the announced repurchase program. The price per share of the company`s repurchases to date have ranged from US$1.92 to US$3.24. Depending on market conditions and other factors, repurchases may be made from time to time in the open market and in negotiated transactions, including block transactions, and may be discontinued at any time. As of March 31, 2003, chinadotcom had approximately 99.3 million common shares outstanding.


Raymond Ch`ien, Executive Chairman, said, "Environmental uncertainties notwithstanding, we remain focused on achieving our objectives by pursuing significant long-term opportunities presented by China`s continuing economic development and its needs both as a user and provider of information technology and services. We also believe this is an opportune time for making synergistic acquisitions and partnerships internationally. The momentum in our strategic direction, coupled with our recent move to profitability and consistent balance sheet strength, give us confidence for the longer term."

All statements other than statements of historical fact, including those with respect to the company`s goals, plans, prospects and strategies are forward-looking statements. The following factors and uncertainties, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements: (a) the ability to realize the company`s strategic objectives by taking advantage of market opportunities in its geographic markets; (b) the ability to make changes in business strategy, development plans and product offerings to respond to the needs of its current, new and potential customers, suppliers and strategic partners; (c) the ability to integrate its operations or new acquisitions in accordance with its business strategy; (d) the effects of its restructurings and the ability to successfully support our operations; (e) the potential negative reaction by its customers or its shareholders to its reduced size or market capitalization; (f) the ability to recruit and retain qualified, experienced employees; (g) the ability to successfully partner with other companies; (h) the ability to acquire additional companies and technologies and manage an increasingly broad range of businesses; (i) negotiations of claims with and reduced importance of its material shareholders; (j) risks associated with the development and licensing of software generally, including potential delays in software development and technical difficulties that may be encountered in the development or use of the company`s software; (k) increased global competition; (l) manage regulatory and litigation risks; (m) the ability to rationalize its operations in a cost effective manner, particularly as related to certain subsidiaries and employees; (n) technological changes and developments; (o) general risks of the Internet, marketing and software sectors; and (p) the uncertain economic and political climate in Asia, the United States and throughout the rest of the world, including as relates to SARS, and the potential that such climate may deteriorate further.


As the company continues its evolution towards a long term software and services strategy, the role of its current or former material shareholders is no longer, and is not expected to be, material or strategic to the company`s operations or results and therefore, increases the likelihood that these material shareholders will seek to materially reduce their holdings in chinadotcom shares. In the process of exiting or reducing its current or former operations, the company has engaged in negotiations with each of its material shareholders to resolve various respective claims which necessarily strain its relationship with these material shareholders. These negotiations could result in liabilities, arbitration, litigation, settlement or unfavorable publicity, any of which could divert significant amounts of the company`s management time and other corporate resources. The four current and former material shareholders are AOL Time Warner Inc., a subsidiary of Xinhua News Agency, a subsidiary of New World Infrastructure Limited and 24/7 Real Media, Inc.


For a detailed discussion of these and other cautionary statements that could affect the company`s business and financial results, please refer to the risk factors discussed in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including but not limited to the company`s Annual Report on Form 20-F and its other SEC filed reports.

Die Ergebnisse haben mich von der Umsatzseite sehr enttäuscht. Trotz der Aquisition von Praxa Ltd und deren Umsatzbeitrag von 3,4 Mio US$ konnte der Umsatz nicht nachhaltig gesteigert werden. Ich gehe davon aus, dass in den nächsten 3 Monaten eher eine Konsolidierung eintritt. Meine Hoffnungen ruhen dann auf dem nächsten Quartal, wenn Newpalm mit einbezogen wird. (ca. 3-4 Mio. US$ zusätzlicher Umsatz) Dann sollte auch der Gewinn stärker zulegen. Hoffen wir auf ein paar gute Unternehmensnachrichten im lfd. Quartal.
Hier noch eine Meldung zum Wochenende. Bis bald.

Hallo zusammen.
Es gibt zwar keine wesentlichen Neuigkeiten, aber es wurde ein wenig an der der Internetseite von Praxa herumgebastelt(www.praxa.com.au) und zudem probiert doch mal www.cdcsoftware.com. Ob das längerfristig nicht mal auf eine Ausgliederung der Softwareaktivitäten oder evtl. eine Namensänderung hindeutet. Überdies wird gerade unter www.chinadotcom.com mächtig gearbeitet. Ich hoffe auf weitere Unternehmensnachrichten.

chinadotcom Mobile SMS Unit Increases Direct Connectivity with Local Mobile Network Operators in China
Four provinces added: Hebei, Yunnan, Gansu and Xinjiang, totaling 26 provinces with direct connectivity

chinadotcom corporation (NASDAQ: CHINA; website: www.corp.china.com), the leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced that its mobile short message service (SMS) unit, Newpalm (China) Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("Newpalm"), a leading SMS and mobile software and application developer in China, has concluded additional direct connectivity in four more provinces with local mobile network operators.


Further to the service agreements signed with mobile network operators in 22 provinces in China, Newpalm recently has concluded additional service agreements with China Mobile Communications Corporation in the provinces of Hebei, Yunnan, Gansu, and Xinjiang, making a total of 26 provinces with direct connectivity. Direct connectivity with provincial network mobile operators facilitates Newpalm`s marketing and promotion activities at the provincial level, resulting in a better quality of service, a higher sign-up rate for subscribers and new services, and a higher level of completion of SMS messages sent.


"Newpalm has made progress in the early stages this quarter despite the SARS impact," said Rudy Chan, Chief Executive Officer of hongkong.com Corporation and leader of chinadotcom`s Mobile and Portal initiative. "After the completion of the acquisition in April this year, we will consolidate the full second quarter of Newpalm into the chinadotcom group`s financial results for Q2 2003. In addition, further synergies between Newpalm and our portal network will continue to take place which will allow us to provide value-added SMS products and services to both our Internet and SMS users."


John Xiao, Chief Executive Officer of Newpalm (China) Information Technology Co., Ltd., said, "The direct connectivity with provincial mobile network operators facilitates flexible local marketing promotions for new services. More importantly, it allows us to deliver a higher quality of service to mobile subscribers."


In the last month, Newpalm has successfully launched a customized weather news service in which users can select the weather news presented by any selected China Central Television weather news presenter and have it delivered to the users at a specific time during the day. The newly launched service is a nationwide service and is charged at 20 cents RMB (US2.4 cents) per message on a subscription or demand basis.


In April, Newpalm and china.com jointly launched the free SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) news service to Internet and mobile users in China. Over 200,000 mobile subscribers are using the free services and more than one million messages were sent since the launch of the SARS SMS content service. Subscribers can retrieve through their mobile phones the latest SARS developments and statistics, as well as SARS preventative educational information.
Ich freue mich, dass es im Forum etwas lebhafter zugeht. Kein Wunder bei einem derart fulminatem Anstieg. Ich persönlich bin ein Anleger der ersten Stunde. (15.07.1999)
Ich würde es begrüßen, wenn jemand eine Vermutung für den Kursanstieg hätte.
z.B. Aufholpotential gegenüber ntes,sina,sohu; Neue Überlegungen von AOL nach dem Auseinandergehen mit Legend; Ergebnisüberraschung (deutlicher Umsatzanstieg) in diesem Quartal oder evtl. ein größerer Softwaredeal. Vielleicht schreibt Ihr mal etwas über Eure Vermutungen. Muß nicht heute sein. Bin auf jeden Fall bis zum Jahre 2008 dabei.
Bis bald.
Das gibts net viel zu vermuten....bessere Zahlen als erwartet seit 2 Quartalen...und das nicht Verlust sondern Gewinn....Die News vom Einstieg in das SMS Geschäft hat Gas gegeben....Insiderkäufe.....Aktienrückkauf......ecetera... :-))
@AndererKostolany

Vielen Dank für Deine Antwort.Hierzu trotzdem noch eine Anmerkung. Die Umsätze sind seit vielen Quartalen enttäuschend. Zwar wurde auf die Kostenbremse getreten und die Bilanzierungspraxis im Hinblick auf die Afa angepaßt, so dass letztendlich ein Gewinn ausgewiesen wurde. Die News vom SMS Geschäft sind OK, macht aber auch zur Zeit nur einen Jahresumsatz von 12-13 Mio$ aus. Insiderkäufe würden mich freuen, da dann noch etwas in der Pipeline ist.Aktienrückkauf ist grundsätzlich positiv, glaube aber nicht, dass das der Grund für nahezu 60% Kursanstieg und ein summarisches Umsatzvolumen von rund 30 Mio Aktien (Rund 1/3 der gesamten ausstehenden Aktien) innerhalb von 2 Tagen ist. Bin gespannt auf die nächsten news und den weiteren Kursverlauf.

Ich würde es übrigens gut finden, wenn die parallele Gemeinde vom Bullensattler sich hier einfinden würde. Es gäbe eine größere Meinungsvielfalt und ggf. mehr Infos.
Leider ist unsere Aktie noch nicht dabei. Aber das ändert sich ab $10. Die langfristige Perspektive stimmt.
Bis bald.

RESEARCH ALERT-US Bancorp initiates Chinese dot-coms
Wednesday June 18, 12:01 pm ET


NEW YORK, June 18 (Reuters) - US Bancorp Piper Jaffray analyst Safa Rashtchy initiated coverage of three Chinese Internet portals on Wednesday, saying China is expected to become the largest Internet market over the next 10 years.


We believe the Chinese Internet market has three distinct characteristics: (((((((((((((it`s in a very early stage))))))--even with about 60 million users it is the second-largest market in the world; direct user monetization beyond advertising has already begun, and the potential size of this market exceeds any other country," Rastchy said.,

He said US Bancorp expects 180 million users by 2007, but gave no projection for the number of users over the next 10 years.:cool: :cool:
Charttechnisch dürfte heute das "Gap" geschlossen werden. Bis jetzt noch keine Unternehmensnachricht. Ohne diese Impulse wird es die Aktie schwer haben heute im Plus zu schließen, obwohl ich davon ausgehe, dass bei dem Umsatzvolumen der letzten 4 Tage irgendetwas in der Pipeline ist. Konsolidierung von SOHU,NTES und SINA macht es nicht leichter. Wir warten weiter.

Hier nochmals eine Unternehmensmeldung. Nicht die auf die wir waren aber immerhin:

HONG KONG, Jun 23, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA; website: www.corp.china.com), the leading integrated enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced that the board of directors of its mobile and portal subsidiary, hongkong.com Corporation nominated Mr. K.O. Chia as an Independent Director of hongkong.com Corporation, subject to regulatory approval.

K.O. Chia is currently the Managing Director of Walden International, a global venture capital firm headquartered in San Francisco, in which he takes the lead in managing the country funds of China, Hong Kong and Japan as well as focusing on investments in the telecom and technology sectors across Asia-Pacific.

Raymond Ch`ien, Executive Chairman of chinadotcom corporation and hongkong.com Corporation, said, "We are delighted to consider K.O. for the board of hongkong.com Corporation. With his substantial experience in the telecom, mobile and technology industries in the Asia-Pacific region, we believe K.O. will make valuable contributions to hongkong.com, our Greater China based mobile and portal unit. He will undoubtedly give us great help in developing our wireless strategy, including growing the SMS (short message service) business in China."

Mr. Chia has an extensive background in telecom and technology with operational experience with both start-up technology companies and Fortune 500 companies in the Asia Pacific region. Prior to becoming a venture capitalist, he created and built the Asia-Pacific operations of Premisys Communications, Inc. from start-up to IPO. He spent 12 years with Hewlett-Packard (now Agilent Technologies) in Scotland, Europe and subsequently transferred back to Asia-Pacific. At Agilent, he gained field sales operations experience in Asia-Pacific with roles in regional program management, market development and sales management. Mr. Chia subsequently joined Apple Computer Asia to take the lead regional product-marketing role to enhance his IT industry knowledge. He was entrusted with the key role to transfer and launch Apple`s Macintosh product line into Asia. Additionally, he aggressively extended and rolled-out Apple`s Asian localization programs, and also created strategies to evangelize Asian software developers to develop application software on Apple`s Macintosh operating system platform.

chinadotcom recently appointed John Clough as the Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of Praxa Limited ("Praxa"), a leading Australian IT outsourcing and professional services organization which was acquired by chinadotcom in February this year. John Clough currently is a Special Advisor of General Atlantic Partners, a global private equity technology investment firm headquartered in New York city.

"The nomination of K.O. and the appointment of John as independent directors of our two core operating subsidiaries demonstrates our commitment to improving our corporate governance process at the core operating level. We believe with their local domain knowledge and presence in the Asian market coupled with their strong experience with global technology investment firms will give us hands-on guidance to drive the strategic direction of our mobile and portal subsidiary as well as our software and outsourcing business," added Dr. Ch`ien.

hongkong.com`s recently acquired SMS company, Newpalm (China) Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("Newpalm"), a leading SMS and mobile software and application developer in China, has made significant progress in terms of the launch of new services and connectivity with provincial mobile network operators. Newpalm recently concluded additional service agreements with local mobile network operators in four more provinces, Hebei, Yunnan, Gansu, and Xinjiang, making a total of 26 provinces with direct connectivity. In addition, it launched customized weather news channel to its SMS subscribers.

Since hongkong.com Corporation is listed on the Growth Enterprise Market of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, Mr. K.O. Chia`s nomination as a director is subject to complying with the appropriate procedures and approvals of the Growth Enterprise Market of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.

Chinadotcom "strong buy"
Emerging Markets Investor

Die Experten des Börsenbriefes "Emerging Markets Investor" sehen das Kursziel für die Aktie der Chinadotcom Corporation (ISIN KYG2108N1097/ WKN 924123) bei 15 USD.

In der letzten Woche sei der Wert binnen zwei Handelstagen um 60% gestiegen, was für den eher phlegmatischen Titel ungewöhnlich sei. Möglicherweise sei dies auf die horrenden Kursexplosionen einiger chinesischer Internetwerte zurückzuführen.

Seit zwei Quartalen sei Chinadotcom in der Gewinnzone. Das Geschäftsmodell sei völlig umgekrempelt und auf eine nachhaltig tragfähige Basis gestellt worden. Der Vorstand arbeite ohne Gehalt, kaufe aber über seinen Familientrust massiv Chinadotcom-Aktien hinzu.

Die Gesellschaft verfüge über ein Bankguthaben von rund 400 Millionen USD. Allein diese Summe decke rund 50% des Aktienkurses ab.

Der Knoten scheint endlich geplatzt zu sein. Daher stufen die Experten von "Emerging Markets Investor" die Aktien von Chinadotcom mit "strong buy" ein und nehmen den Wert in ihr Musterdepot auf.
@Handbuch
Das ist doch mal eine gute Nachricht.
Ich habe in dem Yahoo-Forum beim talk über unsere Aktie (Ist übrigens sehr viel los)eine interessante Internetadresse gefunden. Schaut doch mal auf www.buyhigh.org.

Bis bald
Habe mal etwas aus einem anderen board übernommen, weil es so schön klingt.

Technical Analysis
==================
14-day RSI backs to 65
Retains high bound of 20-day Bollinger Bands
MACD looks bullish
OBV looks bullish
Volume retains at hot 5M shares

Fill the up gap last week, typical academic up run
Gap Up and rise 5% while major index are down

Compared to rivals, public float is quite large to accumulate and pump.
However, CHINA looks a bargain buy when comparing price levels.
People who got big cash from SINA/SOHU/NTES will find another target for another home run. In addition, those 3 are now good short candidates.
On the other hand, CHINA is now a good buy-and-hold candidate with upside potential more than rivals.
When CHINA rises over $5 and $10/$15/$20 (bigger market capital), it will attract more and more investment coverage.

Fundamental Analysis
====================
Expanding from its portal business, CHINA now has its CDC software arm for Asia Pacific.
SMS and online gaming, of course, are trendy lucracious business.

Revenue is growing. Profit is growing. Company size is growing. Profit margin is improving.

Cash is king in this company. With lots of capital(US$341M), CHINA is well-positioned to find takeover target (even itself is a takeover target in this price level).
Hongkong.com (SEHK:8006) is also a good candidate to be privatized because of its cash level.

Overall
=======
Rumor - Oracle/Peoplesoft deal makes attractions to business software sector.
Market - Crystal Decisions filed for IPO. Sector heats up.

$10 is an easy target in June with no adverse news. This stock is not a good short candidate for those who hope for 20-50% drop in one day.
People who dump CHINA now will regret for its big bull run coming up.

Hope to see around 10M volume today and the uptrend for 2003.

Bis bald
Guten morgen.

Hier der nachbörsliche Schlusskurs von der Nasdaq

$ 7,85 bei rund 150.000 Volumen. Sieht für heute ja nicht schlecht aus.

Konkurrenten haben alle teilweise deutlich im Minus geschlossen.

Bis bald
das sieht doch gut aus oder?

und das auch

Denke wir sehen bald die 10 Dollar und dann geht es weiter
mein Ziel bis Ende des Jahres 20 Us Dollar



Die Experten des Anlegermagazins "Der Aktionär" sehen bei der Chinadatcom-Aktie (ISIN KYG2108N1097/ WKN 924123) Kurspotenzial. Das Internet boome in China. Bei einigen Aktien, wie Netease.com habe dies zu gewaltige Kurssteigerungen geführt. Allerdings sollte man bei Aktien wie Netease.com Rücksetzer abwarten. Chinadotcom dagegen habe in den letzten zwölf Monaten "nur" 137% zugelegt. Die Gesellschaft verfüge zudem über 366 Mio. US-Dollar Cash, was etwa zwei Dritteln der aktuellen Marktkapitalisierung entspreche. Die Aktie habe neue Fantasie durch den jüngst bekannt gegebenen Einstieg in das lukrative Online-Spiele-Geschäft bekommen. Die Meinung der Experten von "Der Aktionär" lautet, dass Chinadotcom Kurspotenzial besitzt und ein Kursziel von 9 Euro aufweist.
@caosca

Die Kursziele sind natürlich wünschenswert, aber ich glaube, dass wir ohne gute Nachrichten von der Unternehmensfront nicht in diese Kursregionen vorstoßen. Phantasie für einen Wert ist zwar gut, sollte aber auch durch fundamentale Daten untermauert werden. Ich hoffe demzufolge, dass der Umsatz unserer Aktie in diesem Quartal nahe bei US $ 20 Mio liegt. Der Gewinn sollte auf rund 2 Cent pro Aktie steigen. Mein Kursziel waren rund 10 $ bis Jahresende.Aber warten wir mal die nächsten Ergebnisse ab. Ich gehe zudem davon aus, dass das deutlich gestiegene Tagesvolumen ein Bote für eine gute Nachricht sein sollte.

Warten wir es mal ab
Bis gleich
dann rechne mal zusammen was chinadotcom Wert ist

400 Millionen cash
85 prozentige beteiligung an Hongkong.com Wert? ( konnte es noch nicht herausfinden )
+ diverse andere Beteiligungen
usw.
Das ist wohl richtig. Aber unsere Aktie ist auf dem Kursniveau mit einer Marktkapitalisierung von rund 750 Mio $ nicht billig und nicht mehr durch Cash und Beteiligungen abgegedeckt. d.h. es sollte sich auch im operativen Bereich etwas tun, denn eine Aktie wie Chinadotcom ist doch eher ein Wachstumswert als ein Value Stock.
Überdies gehe auch ich von weiter steigenden Kursen aus, denn sonst wäre ich nicht seit 1999 dabei.

Bis bald
Wie bereits berichtet ist ja die Seite www.buyhigh.org für mich auch neu. Aber heute ist unsere Aktie wieder als "hotbuy" auf der Empfehlungsliste. Nach den Regeln der Kunst sollte sich also morgen unsere Aktie wieder nach oben bewegen.

Schaun mer mal
Einen schönen guten morgen allerseits,

nachbörslich gibt es wieder Hoffnung für heute, dass wir die $ 8,00 knacken. Schlusskurs 7,70, zugleich Tageshoch im nachbörslichen Handel. Vielleicht gibt es ja heute die News auf die wir warten.

Bis bald
Wie in den letzten Tagen auch. Stärkerer Beginn und dann zunehmender Verkaufsdruck. Gerade unter die 7,5 Dollar gedippt. Ohne weitere Nachrichten zunächst kein weiteres Potential.

Schauen wir mal, was der Tag bringt.
Ein schöner Auftakt. 7,55 $. Allerdings ist das Verhältnis Anzahl Käufer zu Verkäufer im Island 2/3. Hoffentlich ist es nicht wie die letzten Tage, guter Beginn und hinterher Gewinnmitnahmen.

Bis bald
Ist zwar nicht mehr ganz neu, aber evtl. interessant:

Das habe ich mir mal vom "Captain" kopiert. Passt hier auch gut rein.

Kursraketen Chinesische Internetaktien – Zündung der nächsten Stufe erfolgt (Part 2)!

Grosses Interesse gibt es weiterhin bei den in New York gehandelten chinesischen Internetwerten und unseren Empfehlungen NETEASE und SINA.COM. Beide Titel erreichten in der vergangenen Woche neue Rekordhochs, mussten in den vergangenen beiden Tagen aber pull-backs im zweistelligen Prozentbereich hinnehmen. Für uns ist das eine Kaufgelegenheit!

Dass die chinesischen Internettitel recht unabhängig von der allgemeinen Nasdaq-Entwicklung tendieren, zeigte einmal mehr der gestrige Tag als der Nasdaq-Composite-Index leicht schwächer tendierte aber sowohl NETEASE als auch SINA.COM zulegten.

Heute dürfte die Entwicklung angesichts der bevorstehenden US-Zinsentscheidung sehr unberechenbar sein. Eine Rücknahme der Leitzinsen um 25 Basispunkte gilt als bereits eingepreist. Wir würden nicht ausschliessen, dass wir am Gesamtmarkt nach dieser Entscheidung kräftigere Gewinnmitnahmen von Investoren sehen, die gemäss dem Motto „buy on rumours sell on facts“ verfahren. Was für den Gesamtmarkt also zum wichtigen Prüfstein werden wird, könnte bei den in New York gehandelten chinesischen Internets nochmals gute Nachfassmöglichkeiten eröffnen. Positiv nämlich:

Unabhängig vom Gesamtmarktgeschehen hangeln sich die Titel im mittel- und längerfristigen Trend unaufgeregt nach oben. Es gibt selten spektakuläre Kurssprünge, entsprechend ist die Markttechnik trotz eines vierstelligen Anstiegs in den vergangenen 12 Monaten nicht überhitzt. NETEASE arbeitet sich mehr und mehr in die Liga der etablierten Werte vor. Die Marktkapitalisierung der Gesellschaft überschritt letzte Woche die magische Schwelle von USD 1 Mrd., seit letzten Dienstag ist die Aktie ausserdem zum Optionshandel an der Amex zugelassen, was den Titel für institutionelle Investoren zusätzlich interessant macht. Optionen auf SINA.COM werden bereits seit Mai an der Amex gehandelt. Die Marktkapitalisierung von SINA hat zuletzt die Marke von USD 800 Mio. überschritten. Unsere Empfehlung:

NETEASE wird wohl schneller als erwartet unser Kursziel von USD 40 erreichen. Kurzzeitig haben wir bereits Kurse von knapp USD 37 gesehen. Die aktuellen Notierungen um USD 30 bieten die Chance, heute in einem möglicherweise volatilen Marktumfeld nochmals Material mit einem Abstauberlimit von USD 29 zu erhalten. An unserem Kursziel von USD 40 halten wir fest. Sehen Sie auf diesem Niveau den Verkauf der Hälfte der Position vor. Bei SINA.COM heben wir unser Kursziel auf USD 25 an, empfehlen aber dringend, den Stop-Kurs auf USD 16 anzuheben und relativ eng USD 2 unter der jeweils aktuellen Notiz zu führen. Zu den in Hongkong notierten asiatischen Internets:

Hier bleiben ISTEELASIA und HONGKONG.COM weiter siedendheiss! Letztere markierten vergangenen Mittwoch mit HKD 0.85 den höchsten Stand seit 30 Monaten und haben damit allein seit März diesen Jahres um sage und schreibe 350% zugelegt. Dennoch:

Nach oben ist noch viel Platz – das historische Hoch liegt bei HKD 7, mithin fast zehn Mal über der heutigen Notiz! Kaufen Sie weiter zu. Wir billigen dem Titel ein recht konservatives
Potential von 50% auf HKD 1.25 bis Jahresende zu! Zuletzt gab es bei diesem Titel ein Pull-back auf HKD 0.65 heute morgen, was zum Nachfassen einlädt!

CHINA.COM, die wir Ihnen in einer der letzten EMI-Ausgaben empfohlen hatten, ist letzte Woche innert zwei Tagen um sage und schreibe 60% explodiert! Das ist für diesen ansonsten eher phlegmatischen Titel ungewöhnlich. Aber ganz offensichtlich hat man sich nach den Kursverzehnfachungen bei Werten wie NETEASE, SINA.COM, SOHU.COM
und REDIFF.COM an den solidesten chinesischen Internet-Play erinnert. Nochmals kurz zu den Fakten:

CHINA.COM befindet sich seit zwei Quartalen in der Gewinnzone. Die Gesellschaft hat ihr Geschäftsmodell völlig umgekrempelt und auf eine nachhaltig tragfähige Basis gestellt. Nicht mehr länger Webdesign, sondern Software steht im Mittelpunkt der Geschäftstätigkeit. Der Vorstand von CHINA.COM arbeitet ohne Gehalt und kauft über seinen Familientrust massiv CHINA.COM-Aktien zu. Kein Wunder angesichts der soliden Finanzierung:

CHINA.COM hat Bankguthaben von rund USD 400 Mio, was alleine die Hälfte des aktuellen Kurses abdeckt. Vor drei Jahren zahlte man für CHINA.COM noch fast USD 80 und damit das Zehnfache des aktuellen Kurses. Seit den Tiefstständen von knapp USD 2 hat sich der Titel „erst“ vervierfacht. Nachdem der Knoten bei CHINA.COM endlich geplatzt zu sein scheint, stufen wir den Wert als klaren „strong buy“ mit Kursziel USD 15 ein! Versuchen Sie deshalb sich ein dreistelliges Potential mit Käufen um USD 7.5 oder darunter zu sichern! (WKN 924 123, Reuters CHINA).
:D
Hallo allerseits.

Wieder mal eine ereignisreiche Woche fast hinter uns. Wenn ich mir die nachbörslichen Kurse so ansehe, kann der heutige Tag vielleicht nochmals erfreulich werden. Hier die Fakten: Nasdaq: Volumen nachbörslich rund 100.000, letzter Kurs 7,65 $.

CDC Software Unit Achieves CMM Level 3 For Its Software Development Center in China
Friday June 27, 7:30 am ET
Demonstrating the company`s commitment to developing quality software products that adhere to global standards


HONG KONG, June 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CDC Software, a software unit and wholly owned subsidiary of chinadotcom corporation (Nasdaq: CHINA; Website: www.corp.china.com), a leading integrated Internet and enterprise solutions company in Asia, today announced that the software development processes of its Software Development Center in Shanghai have successfully achieved Capability Maturity Model ("CMM") Level 3, an internationally recognized standard for software development.

CDC Software is one of only a few software development companies in China that have passed the CMM Level 3 assessment. The CMM assessment of CDC Software`s development center in Shanghai was evaluated by the Software Engineering Institute ("SEI"), an authorized Leader Assessor from Process Improvement Asia ("PIA"). SEI is a US Federally-funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense through the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. Under the assessment, twelve key process areas ("KPAs") of software development have been evaluated and CDC Software has satisfied relevant KPAs required for CMM Level 3 certification.

Daniel Widdicombe, Chief Financial Officer of chinadotcom corporation, said, "We are proud of the continuous improvements made in various areas of software development by CDC Software. The CMM Level 3 is a modest achievement of our software initiatives. However, it demonstrates our ability to provide quality software products to our clients and our commitment to the continual upgrading of our capabilities to adhere global standard. Our next target is CMM Level 4 certification and a leading position in China`s software industry."

The new certification should bolster CDC Software`s outsourcing strategy of offering its own Software Development Center capabilities in China as an outsourcing conduit for low-cost, high-quality software development for internationally established software companies, that are looking to reduce their overall Research and Development costs as part of its overall restructuring initiatives.

"Achieving CMM Level 3 is a reward for us after years of hard work," said Alsen Hsien, Managing Director, China, for CDC Software. "This is not just a certificate, but a demonstration of our capability in developing world class software products at a low cost. We feel it will further strengthen the confidence that our international software partners and our clients have in us."

CMM was developed by the Software Engineering Institute to assist organizations in initiatives that include maturing their software development process to improve long-term business performance.
