Management Commentary
"We are pleased to announce SFLMaven's first reported quarter as a standalone public company, having realized an incredibly strong margin profile - driven by competitive bidding dynamics for our one-of-a-kind products - while standing on the cusp of profitability," said Joseph Ladin, Chief Executive Officer of SFLMaven. "We continue to see strong macroeconomic trends supporting the jewelry industry, with many pockets of newfound wealth created through stimulus efforts as well as stock and cryptocurrency capital gains being deployed into high-end jewelry.

"Our differentiated jewelry sourcing capabilities, when paired with our strong relationship with eBay corporate and select suppliers, presents unique opportunities to further build the SFLMaven brand - including preferred product placements during major sale events on the eBay homepage and exclusive invitations to top-eBay seller events.

"We launched a first-of-kind advertising campaign in the first quarter of 2021, which drove ‘bidding wars' through increased visibility for our listings and therefore significantly higher gross margins as compared to the prior year. As we refine our campaigns to reduce our expenses, improve advertising efficiency and scale our quantity of listings, we believe we will reach profitability in the near-term.

"As we look ahead, our goal is to complete an audit, file a Form 10, uplist to the OTCQB and emerge as a profitable, fully reporting public company with a pathway to an eventual Nasdaq-listing and other complimentary growth opportunities. Given our strong results thus far, I firmly believe that we are on a path to create significant value for our shareholders over the long-term," concluded Ladin.
