Gross revenue for the interim period grew by 65.5% to R200.4 million (2016: R121.1 million) and gross profit increased to R49.3 million (2016: R48.3 million). Profit attributable to owners of the parent was lower at R9.2 million (2016: R10.4 million). Furthermore, headline earnings per share decreased to 6.70 cents per share (2016: 7.53 cents per share).



Dividend policy

The group has traditionally only paid dividends annually, however the board has for the first time considered and declared an interim dividend.



Interim dividend declared

Notice was given that the directors have declared a gross interim dividend of 4 cents per share for the six months ended 31 December 2017.



Prospects

The trading conditions have, for the last 6 months, been difficult due to constrained budgets of major brands and having to navigate political uncertainty. The consumer has also been under pressure with limited disposable income which has impacted on the volumes of certain promotional campaigns. The Group is focussing on the deployment and growth of our new products like Channel Incentives which are progressively substituting the anticipated decline in document management services, in particular Fax2Email.



We believe that there is renewed optimism in the market with the new political dispensation providing greater structural focus and this should filter into the market over the next few months, rejuvenating brand spending and promotional activity across all the Group?s operating divisions.

The board of directors of Cognition informs shareholders that the Company has concluded an agreement for the acquisition of the remaining 37% of the shares in BMi Sport Info (Pty) Ltd. (?BMi Sport?) that the Company does not already own from the two remaining shareholders, David Ian Sidenberg and Wayne Deary.



Overview of BMi Sport

BMi Sport was established in 1990 as an independent research company focusing exclusively on the sport and sponsorship market. BMi Sport has been at the forefront of the industry and has, through its ongoing commitment to the development of unique sponsorship evaluation research products, become recognised as a leader in its field, both in South Africa and internationally.



Rationale for the acquisition of BMi Sport

Cognition currently holds 63% of the issued shares in BMi Sport. These shares were acquired in March 2015. The acquisition of the remaining BMi Sport shares will further complement and enhance the strategic objectives that Cognition has embarked on.



The effective date of the acquisition of the remaining shares is 1 February 2017.



Classification of the acquisition

The acquisition, due to its size, falls below the transaction thresholds as set out in the Listings Requirements of the JSE Ltd. and therefore does not require any formal disclosure. However, the Board would like to advise shareholders of this strategic acquisition.

Company prospects

Over the last six months the group has taken the appropriate strategic and operational steps required to transform into the ?Knowledge Economy? and to proactively move onto a new growth trajectory.



Our historical Active Data Exchange services continue to provide good annuity income and the necessary stability to enable us to develop our new, innovative platforms (SecurDox, Channel Incentives and mibubble).



Our energy is now focussed on the marketing and deployment of the aforementioned new and exciting platforms, opening new markets and opportunities for the group. We believe that the products which we are introducing are disruptive technologies to the industry.



Despite difficult trading conditions within South Africa, we are confident that our new platforms will open up new revenue streams and complementary opportunities.

We will increase the size of our sales team and anticipate growing the number of clients.



We furthermore remain optimistic about our K350, Incentive and Loyalty Programmes and Vendor Relationship Management as these bring new revenue streams to the Group. It is important to note that although the aforementioned services and channels to market are new from a revenue perspective, they are mainly an extension of the service offering to our existing clients where we have long-standing relationships.



The Company has also developed a number of new products in the VRM space which will be launched during May 2016. This is anticipated to introduce yet another new and distinct revenue stream in an area that is gaining traction worldwide. The Company has adopted a six point strategy that provides focus, structure and the ability to open new markets which will enable solid future growth.

Future Prospects

Knowledge 350' represents an exciting new strategy for the Group for the following reasons:

*It opens up new market sectors, new clients and additional revenue streams;

*It is an extension of the Group?s technology capability and adds a consulting element to the traditional sales approach;

*It establishes long-term relationships with existing and new clients;

*Deployment will be low risk, incremental and will enable the existing divisions?, BizWorx and MediaWorx, offerings to continue without any negative financial or strategic impact; and

*It creates both organic and inorganic growth opportunities for the Group.



The Group?s vision is to assist its clients in building ecosystems with opt-in databases with capacity to move the data to information and ultimately knowledge in a way that companies "self-create" intangible assets with each "unit of knowledge" added to the database.



The Group would then:

*own its own databases;

*have right of use to third party databases; and

*manage databases for third parties.



With the impending impact of POPI we believe that Knowledge 350' will provide huge opportunities for the Group.



Knowledge 350' is a 15 step business process which creates an integrated and logical strategic process that assists companies to build up meaningful databases in line with POPI and to move away from segmenting customers to building - single customer profiles' with detailed demographics and psychographics associated to each customer. This will assist companies in building consent-based data (POPI and CPA compliant) with in-depth knowledge (experiences, insights and inferences) so as to effectively monetise the knowledge in a partnership with the consumer.



The technology developed by the Group is used to facilitate the 15 steps and enable the "strategic objectives" to be executed with the deployment of the technology.

Dividends

It is the board's policy to pay annual dividends and therefore no interim dividend has been declared for this interim period. Dividends paid during the interim period relate to dividends declared in prior periods.



Prospects

Foneworx remain optimistic about the next six months to our financial year end in June 2014. We are very excited about the re-engineered MediaWorx route to market incorporating Knowledge 350 degrees as we believe that ?knowledge? will become the next intellectual property for corporations, specifically as there has been a dramatic move to one-to-one marketing which has been facilitated by the massive roll-out of smart devices enabling consumers to access information that is relevant to them as and when required. It is imperative going forward (not only due to legislative requirements such as POPI) that companies become sensitive to the fact that consumers are becoming more demanding and require a relevant dialogue particularly through engagement via various digital channels. In order to create the relevant dialogue, companies must develop single customer views and deep granularity around each customer so as to communicate in the most relevant fashion possible.



Knowledge 350 degrees will assist clients in this process and enable FoneWorx to build intelligent databases with intuitive marketing interfaces that can communicate effectively to ?connected consumers? in relevant and selected channels. The group accordingly anticipate good growth in MediaWorx over the next six months with the deployment of Knowledge 350 degrees which will then facilitate the acceleration of a number of the technical services which have been developed by FoneWorx over the last 17 years in a structured format. Our enhanced call centre, fulfilment centre and new loyalty programme all augur well for enhanced earnings. The company are also actively evaluating niche acquisitions to complement our new Knowledge 350 degrees business process.

Prospects

Our strategy around providing integrated marketing communications around the four disciplines of advertising, promotions, direct marketing and CRM as alluded to under MediaWorx will enable the Group to assist our clients in changing business cultures to align to the new digital reality. This strategy will also integrate the services offered by MediaWorx, BizWorx and CarbonWorx by providing our clients with converged solutions under one roof. The group believe that we will continue to develop social technologies and platforms for specific communities using our strong USSD and Instant Messaging (IM) technology which will be integrated into loyalty programmes, clubs and payment gateways.

(Official Notice)
Foneworx announced that the purchase of the shares owned by the Issie and William Kirsh Family Trusts (Kirsh Family) has been completed. The Kirsh Family is now the largest shareholder in Foneworx with a 32.8% stake. The transaction received 100% shareholder support. Since resigning as CEO of Primedia in August 2009, William Kirsh has spent two and half years developing and refining the strategic blueprint for Value+, as well as commencing a series of acquisitions in line with this blueprint.



Value+ is a one of a kind in South Africa. It is dynamic and straddles a number of sectors that are growing, including the data and analytics market, rewards and benefits sectors: Value+ refers to this as "VALUE" and has developed a proprietary system and definition to maximise the opportunities from this sector - and technology enhanced digital delivery platforms. It also has both horizontal and vertical integration characteristics to it, which leads to lots of opportunities for synergy.



Kirsh's approach since inception has been to develop a vision which is unique and achievable and where companies can benefit synergistically from being part of the group. He has also focused on identifying market sectors that are growing, are big and fragmented. (A similar approach led him to establish Primedia in 1993.) The merger terms for the two companies and additional information on the Value+ strategy and its businesses are expected to be announced towards the end of November.

Prospects

Foneworx is positive about the next six months to their financial year ending June 2012. The company believes that there will be positive growth in the entertainment and media sector, particularly with regard to digital spending incorporating mobile and wireless applications. The two main revenue generators, MediaWorx and BizWorx, operate in an industry where behaviour patterns are moving from outdated or traditional business to a growing digital element.



This rapid and accelerating digitisation of elements, including content, business processes and product innovation will work well for the group. Social media and mobile applications will also have a positive impact on the group. With the growth of digitised content, web access and mobile applications, clients will require the capacity to mine and analyse detailed and granular information not previously available. The group is well placed to be in this innovation space. Foneworx remain optimistic about the roll-out of our fax services in Zambia, Nigeria and Kenya and anticipate traction in the latter half of this calendar year.

AGM notice

Notice is hereby given that the 13th annual general meeting of shareholders of the company will be held at the offices of the company, FoneWorx House, Corner Bram Fischer Drive and Will Scarlet Road (entrance on Will Scarlet Road), Ferndale, Randburg, at 10:00, on Thursday, 10 November 2011, to transact the business stated in the notice of annual general meeting, which is contained in the annual report.



Prospects

The board remains confident about the outlook for the ensuing financial year to 30 June 2012. The beginning of the new financial year has been positive and the board is hopeful that all the energy and work that was deployed in the year under review will reap rewards going forward. Despite its marketing challenges in various African territories, the board believes that the development of the Fax2Email and Web2Fax services into Africa will render positive rewards. MediaWorx and BizWorx continue to provide solid annuity income and the board is positive that the development division will provide new revenue streams to the group and open up new channels for leveraging relatively untapped sectors of not only the South African economy, but also those in the rest of Africa.

(C)
Revenue for the group increased by 0.9% to R46.2 million from R45.8 million in the previous corresponding period, while gross profit decreased from R28.8 million to R27.2 million, a decrease from the previous corresponding period. This decrease is attributed to the higher cost of sales within the product mix of the MediaWorx business segment. Profit after tax grew by 1.0% to R9.8 million from the previous corresponding period's R9.7 million. In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew 6.3% to 7.29cps (6.86cps).



Outlook

The financial year to June 2011 is expected to be challenging as a result of the difficult first six months. However, we remain positive, particularly with regard to the launching of BizWorx Fax2Email platforms in Zambia, Kenya and Nigeria. Furthermore, an additional three countries on the African continent have also been identified and preliminary work continues for launch in these territories later in this calendar year. These launches require low capital investment due to the fact that FoneWorx has developed these platforms and the software is proprietary. In addition, they are annuity based services with very low maintenance.



With sustainability and climate change issues continuously gaining momentum management is also confident that CarbonWorx will grow from strength to strength, particularly in view of the launch of the South African National Green Paper 2010 and The 17th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change being held in South Africa in November 2011.

However its biggest contributors to revenue are the Fax2Email and PC2Fax services which are housed in the BizWorx unit.



The company indicated that it had researched market opportunities in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and Botswana. It plans to enter three of these countries this year, the rest will follow in 2012. Fone worx has launched new divisions like IDWorx, which provides identity verification services to corporate and government institutions, DRWorx, a disaster recovery unit targeting stock broking market, and CarbonWorx, whose objectives include restoration of local ecosystems.

Shareholders are advised that the annual report for the year ended 30 June 2010 was dispatched today, 22 September 2010.



Prospects

The board remains confident about the outlook for the ensuing year to June 1011 and is especially positive about the prospects of IDWorx and CarbonWorx. It is anticipated that these two divisions will provide new revenue streams for the group and open up new channels for leveraging previously untapped sectors of the economy. The launch of CarbonWorx has been well timed and provides the group with some proverbial "white space" which is difficult to find. Foneworx believe that corporates are beginning to understand the need to embrace sustainable issues and see this as an enabler for providing a competitive edge. The board has been encouraged by the positive response to the unique and innovative offering and believe that CarbonWorx can leverage new markets for the group. The group continues to build a strong balance sheet and Fax2Email provides solid cash flows. With the deployment of Fax2Email in other territories in Africa, cash flows should be materially enhanced. The board wishes to thank all staff and dealers for the part they have played over the past year and to also thank its clients, suppliers and shareholders for their continued support.

Dividend

Prospects

The outlook for the full financial year to June 2010 remains positive, particularly with regard to the new brands, which although currently in their infancy, have already started to show nominal revenue streams and positive market response. FoneWorx has spent both time and resources in the development of the three new brands: IDWorx, DRWorx and CarbonWorx. The performance of these brands in the interim period bodes well for future growth. These new brands will provide FoneWorx with new revenue streams not traditionally associated with FoneWorx and provide additional diversity to the group. A small percentage of the cash resources will be applied to the development of these three new brands. Thereafter the group will be looking at any appropriate acquisitions or investment opportunity.

(Media Comment)
The Financial Mail reported that Foneworx is a good company but its problem is that it might be too small to be taken seriously. The business delivers good results even in difficult times, but seems to be overlooked. However, things could change in 2010, as the group is launching three new divisions which could double or treble revenue over time, according to CEO Mark Smith. These new divisions will be focused on identity verification, disaster recovery and carbon trading. Foneworx should also be able to deliver because it will be using existing infrastructure to offer these services.
