After being low-profile for a few years, DiSa returned to investors' radar screen in Dec 2021 with a Covid-test product, catalysing a re-rating of its stock price.

Its indirect subsidiary company, Digital Life Line (DLL), was awarded the licence for a saliva-based antigen rapid test kit IP from Duke-NUS Medical School and SingHealth. 

It plans to commercialise, through DLL, the new saliva-based ART kits within the next 6 months, subject to approval from the relevant regulatory authority. (See: )

Meanwhile, Singapore-listed DiSa has just announced that its core digital business continued to progress significantly in 1H FY2022 (ended 31 Dec 2021).

Losses narrowed to $1.03 million, a decrease of 39.7%, from $1.71 million, excluding one-off loss of $205,000 from write-off of office renovation cost in 1H FY2021, thanks mainly to higher revenue and lower operating costs.

Sales of Goods and Services
The Group recorded revenue of $13.0 million in 1H FY2022 (+113.2% y-o-y) as the number of DiSa-enabled product categories continued to expand.

Operating Expenses
Operating expenses for 1H FY2022 was $1,743,000 (-33.4%), excluding one-off loss of $205,000 from write-off of office renovation cost in 1H FY2021. This was mainly attributable to:

(i) lower staff costs of $1,177,000 in 1H FY2022 against $1,785,000 in 1H FY2021 from lower share option expenses as the cost of issuing share options for share options granted prior to FY2017 has been fully expensed off in FY2021;

(ii) lower depreciation charges from lower right-of-use asset as compared to the same period last year; and

(iii) decrease in other expenses from $576,000, excluding one-off loss of $205,000 from write-off of office renovation cost, in 1H FY2021 to $406,000 in 1H FY2022, attributed mainly from loss on foreign currency exchange as USD weaken against SGD in 1H FY2021.
