Kuala Lumpur, 26 October 2018 – Dagang NeXchange Berhad (“DNeX”), through subsidiary company Innovation Associates Consulting Sdn Bhd (“IAC”), has been awarded an information and communication technology (“ICT”) maintenance project from the Accountant General’s Department Malaysia.

The project, named “Perkhidmatan Penyenggaraan Perkakasan, Peralatan Rangkaian dan Perisian iGFMAS, is worth RM59.4 million. The tenure of the project is one year, starting from 10 August 2018 to 9 August 2019.

Under the project, DNeX will be responsible for maintenance of hardware, software and network equipment of the Government Financial and Management Accounting System (“iGFMAS”), an accrual accounting shared services implementation.

IAC is one of the two leading consulting and accounting system services companies acquired by DNeX earlier in January this year.

DNeX, through wholly owned subsidiary Dagang Net Technologies Sdn Bhd, has acquired 51 per cent equity interest in Genaxis Sdn Bhd for RM10 million, and this acquisition gives Dagang Net a direct equity interest of 60 per cent in IAC.

“We are grateful to be given the opportunity to undertake the implementation of this project, and committed to deliver its set requirements,” said Datuk Samsul Husin, Executive Deputy Chairman of DNeX, and also Executive Chairman of Dagang Net.

“Our acquisition of Genaxis and IAC was aimed to expand and strengthen our IT and e-Services business segment, namely accounting system and consultancy, and the project is indeed affirmative towards this direction,” he said.

Genaxis is an experienced consulting firm that delivers training and consulting services in transformation initiatives, and has worked with numerous organisations and agencies.

IAC, meanwhile, is a leading consulting firm with more than 300 experienced consultants that has completed more than 100 projects in the public and private sectors. The company is currently the contractor for iGFMAS, the government’s accrual accounting system.
