The funding received under this contract is to develop a dual sensor metal detector which incorporates ground penetrating radar.

The defence contract will partially offset the development costs of the product, and the project is expected to be completed by 2018.

The handheld device detector is anticipated to provide an enhanced capability that currently does not exist.

Hence, once the product enters into service with the Australian defence forces, Codan expects other militaries to seek the same level of capability, broadening Codan’s market for countermine products.

Previous to this award, in March 2014, the company was selected by the Department of Defence to receive $1 million in funding to further integrate metal detection and ground penetration radar technologies into a lightweight and compact mechanical platform.

In December 2014, an additional $1.3 million in funding was provided to produce an advanced prototype of the handheld device detector.

Codan earned a statutory net profit after tax of $15.5 million for the year ended 30 June 2016, up 24% compared to last year.

This enabled the company to pay out fully franked dividends totalling $0.06 for the year.

Codan’s share price has almost doubled during the last 6 months, last closing at $1.39.

iSentric Ltd posts 120% growth in quarterly cash receipts iSentric Ltd (ASX:ICU) has posted record cash receipts of $3.35 million for the June 2016 quarter, a 120% increase over the previous corresponding period.

The company acquired 2.43 million new paying users during the quarter in the Digital and Media Services segment in Indonesia, which is ahead of the 1.5 million forecast for the quarter.

As a result, the high margin Digital Media and Services division continues to be the main revenue contributor to the group, contributing 56% of group revenue and 83% of the group’s gross contribution.

During the quarter, the group also received a large contribution from its Malaysian telecommunications business.

The operations in Thailand made a small contribution to cash receipts, while the Myanmar operation will not begin contributing to cash until the second quarter of FY 2017.

iSentric entered the Myanmar market in June by marketing digital media services including games, videos and celebrity content to customers of Myanmar’s largest telco – MPT.

Overall, the operating cash flow of the group for the June 2016 quarter was $444,448. The result reflects the continuing strength of iSentric's operations in Indonesia.

Mobile Embrace Ltd in $12M cash raiser to drive SE Asian growth Mobile commerce company Mobile Embrace Ltd (ASX:MBE) has completed an oversubscribed $12 million equity placement to fund the international expansion of its Direct Carrier Billing (DCB) business in Asian markets.

The raising attracted new local and overseas fund managers to the register as the company looks to scale its existing DCB footprint to 30 Telcos globally in the next 12 months.

This would look to translate to over 500 million mobile consumers, an ambitious target that institutions were keen to back in the raising.

MBE will look to raise up to an additional $3.5 million from an SPP at $0.30 per share.

MBE offers direct carrier billing in partnership with telecos in South East Asia, enabling customers to pay for products and serviced by adding them to their mobile bill.

The service is gaining acceptance from customers, resulting in FY2016 revenue guidance of $60 million, up 82% compared to FY2015 revenue of $33 million.

While FY2016 EBITDA guidance is $9 million, a 76% increase on FY2015 EBITDA of $5.1 million.

The high revenue and EBITDA growth are outcomes of strong organic growth in the carrier billing businesses with more than 750,000 transactions occurring globally per month.

MBE’s equity placement of $12 million is on top of a cash balance of $5 million as on 31 December 2015.

Hummingbird Resources’ Monro on new plan for Yanfolila mine The head of business development at Hummingbird Resources (LON:HUM), Bert Monro, explains how improvements at the Yanfolila gold project in Mali will see more gold being produced from two pits than the five initially planned.

Work since a recent optimisation study means the West African focused miner is now concentrating on a two pit mine plan at Komana East and West to smooth out the process in early years of debt repayment.

Yanfolila is fully funded, subject to the completion of the US$75mln debt package provided by Taurus, which Hummingbird will continue to draw down.

Munro says the other three pits will be brought into the mine plan in due course, further extending the mine life and increasing production.
