Hong Kong Operation

Revenue from Hong Kong operation increased by 4.0% to HK$1,081.4 million (FY2022/23: HK$1,040.1 million), mainly attributable to the increasing customer patrons to the existing and new shops this year. Revenue from Hong Kong operation accounted for 77.6% (FY2022/23: 74.9%) of the Group’s revenue.

As of 31 March 2024, the Group had a well-established network of service centres in Hong Kong covering a total of 196,000 square feet. During the year, to enhance its store coverage and market share, the Group strategically added a total of eleven shops across different core areas in Hong Kong, including two flagship shops and nine residential shops.

The Group expanded its geographical footprint through a co-ordination between flagship and residential shops to add value to its customers and maintain agility in this evolving business landscape. This ecosystem seamlessly connects residential shops with flagship locations, resulting in overall consumption enhancement and new customers intake. The Group continued the residential shop expansion in the second half of the year, significantly bolstering its presence in Hong Kong.

To further diversify its non-aesthetic medical business, the Group forged a co-operation with a renowned Japanese brand, “Goku Spa”, in the Greater China region in January 2024, and launched “Goku Spa” sleeping therapy treatment outlets in Hong Kong during the year.

Regions outside Hong Kong

Revenue from regions outside Hong Kong was HK$311.9 million (FY2022/23: HK$349.2 million), supported by the positive revenue growth in Mainland China while impacted by the difficult environment in both Australia and Singapore. Currently, revenue from the regions outside Hong Kong accounted for 22.4% of the Group’s revenue (FY2022/23: 25.1%).

As of 31 March 2024, the Group has an extensive network of service centres in regions outside Hong Kong covering a total service area of 108,000 square feet.

For the year under review, revenue from Mainland China and Macau increased year-on-year, mainly benefiting from post-pandemic consumption recovery and contributions from new shops. For the year ended 31 March 2024, the Group redeployed a total of four new shops in Shenzhen and Shanghai. The performance of Australia and Singapore has been significantly affected by the persistent inflation pressures and wage increases, which also impacted the Group’s overall financial performance.

Prospects

Dr. Au-Yeung Kong, the executive director, chairman and chief executive officer of Perfect Medical, said that “the macroeconomic situation remains challenging. It is expected that both Hong Kong and Mainland China’s economy will maintain its recovery momentum, supported by the continual improvement in domestic spending and the governments’ stimulus measures.

We will continue to pursue the ‘Dual-Circulation’ strategy via the combination of aesthetic and non-aesthetic medical services, in order to navigate the present headwind and further promote the growth and profitability of Perfect Medical. Additionally, the Group is diversifying into non-aesthetic medical services, and establishing alliances with different international providers — a strategic move set to strengthen our frontier position in Hong Kong.

For the expansion in Mainland China, the Group is selectively expanding its presence in key economic regions like the Greater Bay Area and Eastern China. This measured expansion allows the Group to capitalise on viable opportunities while ensuring sustainable, long-term value creation for the investors and stakeholders. We are dedicated to fostering a sustainable business model that not only meets our economic objectives but also makes a positive impact on society.”
