Strong growth continued in both the Telecommunications Products & Services (mobile recharge platform) and the SMS & MMS texting service.
"The fourth quarter generated $5.43 million in revenue and represented the third consecutive quarter of record revenue. If the current trajectory continues, revenue may easily exceed US$21 million for the FYE 2022," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion. "The Company recently announced that Top-up revenue could increase by as much as 1000% and that SMS revenue could increase by 20 - 30% in FYE 2022. This growth is expected to be fueled by an expansion of subscribers in new regions. These expansion zones are primarily attributable to strong relationships with the Company's telecommunications partners that value our platform's reliability and customer loyalty programs. As the Company continues to capture more users on our platforms, the models become more sustainable."
The Company recorded $0.55 million in research and development expenses which was up approximately 42% from FYE 2020. "The Company is rapidly evolving and we saw the first indication of revenue, albeit small, from the Big Data Insights division and from our new venture selling subscriptions and mobile phones," said Martin Shen. "We are a technology company and believe our future lies in the Big Data Insights division. By the end of calendar 2021, we expect multiple contracts relating to our Insuretech products."
Gross profit increased by approximately 71% and G&A expenses increased by 59%. "We are constantly striving to optimize our resources," said Martin Shen. "For the past two years we have been driving revenue and profitability at the same time. We have been able to steadily increase our margins by optimizing our product mix between Top-up and SMS. While our biggest challenge continues to be access to non-dilutive capital, we remain steadfast in our belief that we will reach profitability in the near future."
The Company ended FYE 2021 with $2.11 million in positive shareholders' equity. "For FingerMotion's shareholders this is a big step forward because many senior exchanges require a certain amount of positive shareholders' equity to qualify under listing standards," said Martin Shen.
