• Company acquires fully functional seamless aggregation platform, which positions GMGI for entry into multiple new markets with gaming operators worldwide

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2021 / Golden Matrix Group Inc. (OTC PINK:GMGI), a developer and licensor of online gaming platforms, systems and gaming content, today reported that it achieved record revenues exceeding $2.6 million and its eleventh consecutive quarter of profitability in the first fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2021.

The Company said acceleration in total Q1 revenues was a result of strong revenue contributions from non-related-party distributors, which also accounted for an increase in cost of goods sold and a decrease in gross profit margin. According to CEO Anthony Brian Goodman, "This is a highly scalable business and we expect the margins to improve over time due to cost optimization and the deployment of the new fully functional seamless aggregation platform."

Mr. Goodman noted, "GMGI's strong recurring quarterly results and solid balance sheet - with almost $12 million in cash and cash equivalents - has distinguished the Company from many of the other emerging companies in the gaming space. Whereas revenues thus far have resulted primarily from licensing fees received from gaming operators located in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, we have begun to pursue opportunities in new vertical markets that we believe can vastly expand our user base and extend GMGI's global footprint."

"We are extremely excited about these new opportunities for the Golden Matrix brand as we continue to grow our core business. We expect them to make meaningful contributions to revenues and profits during this calendar year and beyond. With the Company's growing financial strength, we continue to evaluate additional partnerships and potential acquisitions that we expect to further accelerate overall growth," added Mr. Goodman.

These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside of the Company's control which could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company; the need for additional financing, the terms of such financing and the availability of such financing; the ability of the Company to manage growth; disruptions caused by acquisitions; the Company's reliance on its management; the fact that the Company's chief executive officer has voting control over the Company; related party relationships; the potential effect of economic downturns and market conditions on the Company's operations and prospects; the Company's ability to protect proprietary information; the ability of the Company to compete in its market; the Company's lack of effective internal controls; dilution caused by efforts to obtain additional financing; the effect of future regulation, the Company's ability to comply with regulations and potential penalties in the event it fails to comply with such regulations; the risks associated with gaming fraud, user cheating and cyber-attacks; risks associated with systems failures and failures of technology and infrastructure on which the Company's programs rely; foreign exchange and currency risks; the outcome of contingencies, including legal proceedings in the normal course of business; the ability to compete against existing and new competitors; the ability to manage expenses associated with sales and marketing and necessary general and administrative and technology investments; and general consumer sentiment and economic conditions that may affect levels of discretionary customer purchases of the Company's products.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA, which is disclosed below, is a "non-GAAP financial measure" presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's performance. Adjusted EBITDA is not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it provides additional useful information to investors due to the various noncash items during the period. Adjusted EBITDA is not recognized in accordance with GAAP, is unaudited, and has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments; Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on debt or cash income tax payments; although depreciation and amortization are noncash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and other companies in this industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than the Company does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. The Company's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Golden Matrix Group Inc., to Adjusted Earnings excluding Interest Expense, Interest Income, Amortization Expense and Stock-based Compensation Expense" included at the end of this release.
