Management outlook and future projects
In the past few years, the Company was taking conservative view which resulting in a long gap between launching each new project and less transfer revenue in late 2017 than other previous years. The low revenue from unit transfer will continue until end of 1H18 before project the Lofts Asoke is ready to be transferred by end of the year. The Company anticipated this effect and had adjusted the strategy to target at launching new projects yearly to gain revenue at least THB 5bn per year in the next few years. The Company also aims to develop recurring income project to generate revenue at least 30% of total revenue in the next 5 years. This is for stabilizing and giving higher flexibility in operation. From the new strategy, in 2017, the Company had secured 2 plots of land for developing new luxury condominium projects worth approximately THB 9bn. Moreover, the recurring income vision had shown substantial on our grade A office rental project on Ploenchit Road. This project will provide stable income to the Company from 2021 onwards. The Company remains the vision to be medium-size corporate which provide the best residential projects in Bangkok and tourist destination as well as provide grade A modern office rental space for leading Thai and international corporates.
