FY20 Results Summary

September 1, 2020 Financial No Comments Email Email

AuMake International Limited (AuMake or the Company), a specialist retailer providing
a contemporary shopping experience to Asian customers seeking high-quality and authentic Australian and New Zealand products, is pleased to release its financial results for the 2020 Financial Year (FY20).
Financial Results Summary

The Company’s financial performance significantly improved in FY20 with the strategic acquisition and integration
of Broadway Group during 1HFY20, which substantially increased Asian tourist visitation to AuMake.
However in early 2HFY20, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the closure of Australian & New Zealand
international borders which materially reduced Asian tourist traffic to AuMake and associated revenue.
AuMake responded immediately by taking steps to significantly reduce operating costs including downsizing its
labour force, temporarily closing physical stores and deferring/cancelling all non-core expenditure. In addition to
implementing operating expenditure measures, the Company worked closely with key creditors and obtained
government subsidies such as JobKeeper, to allow the Company to effectively manage its cash position.
After a short period of consolidation, the Company turned its attention to growth with increased investment into
its online business. The launch of Broadway Online in March and the renewed focus from AuMake Online
towards the promotion of higher margin products, materially improved total online financial performance during
Keong Chan, Executive Chairman said:
“COVID-19 has had a profound impact on AuMake.
Despite traditional revenue streams being impacted during 2HFY20, our financial performance improved
significantly across all key metrics for FY20. This financial performance and ability to navigate COVID-19 is
attributed to the talent and commitment of the AuMake team and our partners.
COVID-19 has challenged our very DNA and I am proud to say that our response has been emphatic. We have
deeply considered the ‘big picture’ and are firmly focussed on growth in the context of a vastly different world.

An important step in our future growth is our recently announced partnership with Shenzhen Jiezhou
Technology Co, Ltd., who are partly owned by leading fintech Ant Financial Services Group, to develop our
next generation online platform to be launched in October 2020.
Our new online platform will not only simply cater for trading retail products in the traditional sense but most
importantly usher in a new online era in Australia by incorporating the very latest E-commerce trends from China
and around the world, which blends previously separate concepts of social networks and commerce into one.
The evolution of AuMake is also not just isolated to our online business but will be entirely holistic as we fully
embrace a complete transformation of our business.
We are incredibly excited for the future of AuMake and I look forward to updating our shareholders in the near

Shenzhen Jiezhou Technology Co, Ltd

• Reinvigorate product mix to provide new exciting choices for customers and catering for changing
consumer tastes
