name changed to Cipherpoint Limited


The suspension of trading in the securities of Covata Limited will be lifted from the commencement of trading on Monday, 2 December 2019, following receipt of CVT's Appendix 4D and reviewed Half Year accounts for the period ended 30 September 2019.


The company's quoted securities will be reinstated to trading on 2 December 2019. The company has in excess of $2m in cash reserves to date.


The company lodges its Half Year Accounts.


Covata notes the successful completion of the sale of SafeShare by Covata to Cocoon/Cybr5 and satisfaction of the vendor loan. The parties have now agreed to: act as mutual channel partners for our products both in Australia and overseas; and identify opportunities for direct sales. Certain leads have arisen where potential customers are seeking a bundle of both the companies' products as part of a complete data protection solution. The parties will collaborate on these sales opportunities.


The final installment of the $1m owing to it by Cybr5 Pty Limited has been received. Interest of approximately $50k remains outstanding, although it is expected to be received in the coming weeks. The company has received the R&D rebate ($810k) foreshadowed in its market update on 24 October 2019. The company expects to lodge its accounts for the half-year ended 30 September 2019 in the coming days. The company proposes changing its name to Cipherpoint Limited. The change of name will be part of a rebranding and marketing relaunch as part of the revised business strategy.


The company's general meeting will be held at 9 am (Sydney) on Tuesday, 17 December 2019 at Nexia Sydney, Level 16, 1 Market Street, Sydney, New South Wales, 2000.


The company will shortly establish its presence in Heilbronn, Germany in December with two resources relocating from Sydney to service our major Fortune 500 German customer, DHL, and to expand our business in the DACH region. The company anticipates that it will be reinstated to trading pending completion of half year accounts, receipt of the outstanding balance of payment from Cybr5 and receipt of its R&D rebate - both are expected within the next week.


The following unlisted options/warrants have lapsed or expired: 341,441 - 31 October 2019 - Exercise price of US$2.93; 250,000 - 31 October 2019 - Exercise price of $4.00; 1,912,049 - 25 March 2020, although subject to vesting conditions associated with the terminated agreement with Cisco Systems Inc - Exercise price of $5.48. A further 25,000,000 warrants with an exercise price of $0.30 will expire on 7 November 2019.


The company continues to focus on the data security, information governance and compliance markets by helping organisations to find and protect their most sensitive data. The company owns and retains very solid intellectual property. The focus is squarely now on commercialisation and sales. The company intends to focus on renewing existing customers in the US; leveraging its channel relationship with Singapore based partner Total eBiz Solutions in the Asia market; building a solid pipeline of direct and indirect opportunities in the DACH region of Europe; and continuing business development in Australia. The company has rebuilt all its sales collateral and use cases and requalified its sales pipeline of leads and opportunities. It intends to relaunch its digital marketng and lead generation activities in the first week of November. dataglobal has offered to support the company with marketing, channel and direct customer introductions and office accommodation. Both parties have agreed to collaborate and will look for further ways to work together. The board has resolved to seek shareholder approval for a change in company name to Cipherpoint Limited. The company expects that during the current quarter, the receivable due from Cybr5 will be repaid and it will also receive its R&D refund. The company's objectives in the coming year are to significantly increase Eclipse revenues, convert current opportunities in Asia into sales through TeBs, secure further marquee customers in Europe and build a solid pipeline locally for the products. By the end of the quarter, the company will have 10 full-time staff and 3 contract solutions engineers/developers.


Cybr5 Pty Limited has not repaid the final instalment of $1m and any accrued interest arising from the acquisition by Cybr5 of the SafeShare business which was due on 15 October 2019. The company is currently in discussions with Cybr5 and its promoters regarding the expected timing of payment within the third quarter.
