What does K2fly own?

A lead asset for K2fly is the Infoscope land management system which collates corporate data to provide insight to a business’ assets and perspective.

The data collaboration visualisation tool tracks compliance with land-use access restrictions, allowing its users or clients to consider two parts of the triple bottom line considered by government agencies when assessing licensing and permit applications — social and environment considerations.

Infoscope can help out with stakeholder management, tenement management considerations, cultural heritage considerations or limitations on land use, and track native title or title applications over land.

The information management system can also be used for environmental management and life-cycle ground disturbance management processes.

K2fly’s other offerings fall into the mobility solutions, Internet of Things (IoT), smart grid and meters and asset management and solutions categories.

The company boosted quarterly invoices by 52% to $1.5 million in the June 2019 quarter, when compared to the corresponding quarter in 2018.

Financial year invoicing is now about $4.2 million, a 62% increase on 2017-18.

This including an $82,000 R&D tax refund from the Australian Government received in the June quarter.

The company had $1.06 million on June 30, 2019 and about $850,000 in aged receivables, including a lion’s share from tier-one clients.

K2fly reports “record” financials, confirms CEO Brian Miller

“We had a record quarter last quarter for the quarter just closed,” K2fly chief executive officer Brian Miller told Proactive Investors a week ago.

“Got up to about $1.5 million invoicing. The previous (quarter) last year would have been in the high nine-hundreds, so more than a 50% increase.

“For the overall year, we were previously around the two-and-a-half mill mark for invoicing and we’re now up to nearly $4.2 (million), that’s give or take a 60% increase, so we’re happy with that.

“From a cash position we’ve got more than a million dollars in the bank at the moment and about $850k of Asia receivables and something like $50k worth of work in progress, so … very happy with the turnout thank you.”
