The acquisition of Simply Sakal Pte. Ltd. by Ohmyhome and its renaming to Ohmyhome Property Management represents a strategic move to diversify revenue streams and solidify market presence in the property management sector. The reported Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 57% in the property management business indicates a robust growth trajectory, which could be a positive indicator for investors looking at the long-term value creation potential of Ohmyhome. The integration of services into the Simple App could enhance user experience and lead to increased customer retention, which is critical in the competitive proptech landscape.

Furthermore, the entry into the more lucrative private condominium market signals an expansion strategy that leverages existing infrastructure to tap into higher-value transactions. The potential for cost synergies through office consolidation and back-office integration is noteworthy as it suggests a focus on operational efficiency that may improve profit margins over time.

Ohmyhome's announcement of an Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of over $2.7 million is a significant metric that investors use to gauge the predictable and stable nature of revenue streams in SaaS businesses. The introduction of Vehicle Management Systems as a new SaaS offering, coupled with the Internet of Things (IoT) integrations, could be a growth catalyst by providing differentiated services in a traditionally manual industry. This technological edge has the potential to increase market share and justify a premium valuation.

However, investors should also consider the costs associated with these technological advancements and the time required to achieve full integration and market penetration. The successful implementation of these IoT solutions could result in cost savings for clients and competitive advantages, but it requires careful monitoring of the execution risks involved.

The strategic acquisition by Ohmyhome indicates a significant shift in the company's focus from the HDB resale market to the more premium private condominium sector. This move is not only likely to increase the average revenue per transaction but also positions the company within a different customer segment. The emphasis on a property SuperApp and the integration of IoT solutions for vehicle management reflect an innovative approach to property management, which is traditionally a conservative and low-tech industry.

Given the high property values in Singapore, the company's growth strategy to offer end-to-end property solutions, including higher-margin renovation services, could cater to an unmet need in the market. Stakeholders should monitor customer adoption rates and the scalability of these integrated services to assess the long-term impact on the company's market position.

  • Units under management reached 6,746 units, with an Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of over $2.7 million (SGD 3.6 million), and additional SaaS revenue streams.

Singapore, Feb. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ohmyhome Ltd. (NASDAQ: OMH, “Ohmyhome”), a one-stop-shop property technology platform providing end-to-end property solutions and services to buy, sell, rent, and renovate homes, as well as property management services for condominiums in Singapore, is pleased to announce significant developments and milestones following its acquisition of Simply Sakal Pte. Ltd.

Simply Sakal Pte. Ltd. is now renamed as Ohmyhome Property Management further enhancing the one-stop brand of Ohmyhome.

This strategic transaction has not only expanded Ohmyhome's service offerings to include a non-cyclical recurring revenue stream, but also established a strong position in the condominium property management sector in Singapore with close to 6,800 units under management and an ARR reaching $2.7 million (SGD 3.6 million) on December 31, 2023. The condominiums are across various districts in Singapore with sizes ranging from 10 to over 700 units per project.

The property management business has historically grown its business at 57% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate), achieving revenue of $2.0 million (SGD 2.6 million) in 2022 with 4,648 units under management.

Integration and Potential Synergies

Ohmyhome’s suite of services are now fully integrated and accessible in the Simple App, the property management mobile application used by the homeowners and residents of the units managed by Ohmyhome Property Management. In addition to the property management revenue stream to Ohmyhome as a combined entity, there are also significant potential synergies arising from the customers residing in the condominium units.

Simple App with Ohmyhome’s Services Integrated

Historically, Ohmyhome has primarily been active in the Housing Development Board (HDB) resale market where home values are around $0.3 to 0.8 million, with average revenue per transaction at around $4,000 at 1% commission. The integration allows Ohmyhome to quickly enter into the private condominium market where home values in Singapore typically range from $1 to 2.5 million and a revenue per transaction that would be 2 to 5 times higher ranging from $10,000 to $25,000. This would result in a lower cost of customer acquisition as compared to other agents as Ohmyhome is now seen in the daily life of the residents of the enclosed condominium communities. Renovation contracts for private condominium renovation ($40,000 - 80,000) are also typically higher than HDB flats ($20,000 - 50,000).

Following the acquisition, Ohmyhome Property Management has relocated its office to merge with Ohmyhome's headquarters at 11 Lor 3 Toa Payoh, Jackson Square Block B #04-17, Proptech Innovation Centre, Singapore 319579. This creates cost synergies through the consolidation of office spaces as well as back-office functions, which streamlines operations and enhances efficiency across both companies.

New Revenue Streams and IoT Integrations

To redefine property management, Ohmyhome Property Management has also introduced Vehicle Management Systems for condominiums as a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) revenue source in Q4 2023 through the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. We believe this new service, focusing on resident and visitor vehicle management on a subscription model, represents a leap forward in enhancing property security and efficiency.

The IoT solutions streamline vehicle entry and exit processes, allowing for pre-registered vehicles to enter and exit the estates freely without the need for human security details. We believe this offers a modern, secure, and seamless experience for both residents and property managers, and leads to savings for the Management Corporation Strata Titles (MCSTs), and further solidifies Ohmyhome Property Management as an industry leader in bringing technology to property management, where the industry is mostly paper-based and manpower intensive. As a technology player in the property management industry, Ohmyhome Property Management has the capability to integrate additional IoT solutions and services beyond its current functionalities to provide more convenience to the residents.

A Property SuperApp and Expected Growth Ahead

This post-acquisition phase marks the beginning of a new era for Ohmyhome, further propelling the growth of the combined company to become a property SuperApp. With a combined portfolio of services and customers, we believe the Company is set to deliver value and service to its clients, and additional growth curves from the ever expanding customer base of homeowners and home seekers.

Rhonda Wong, CEO and Co-founder of Ohmyhome, stated “We are extremely excited about the opportunities ahead of us with the successful integration of our new property management arm headed by a talented and dedicated team of seasoned professionals.”
