NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 27, 2022 / FingerMotion, Inc. (NASDAQ:FNGR), a mobile data and services company, is pleased to announce that it expects is quarterly revenues for the period ended November 30, 2022 to exceed $10 million. Based on expected revenue growth in its core businesses, the Company also anticipates the annual revenue should exceed prior year's total for the current fiscal period.
Over the past 6 months the Company raised a total of $15.5 million in proceeds from a convertible note private placement and a non-brokered private placement offering that closed in two tranches. Through the end of November 2022, only a portion of the funds raised was employed in operations, while a portion of the remaining balance of $11.5 million could be used to pay or extinguish the existing note from the convertible note private placement (the "Note"). According to the repayment provisions and the default remedies provided in the Note, the Company offered to comply with the repayment of 25% of the proceeds towards the Note, unless waived, as well as to pay the mandatory default amount of $5.28 million, if the lender declared the mandatory default amount due and payable. However, the lender did not recognize the invocation of any of the rights or remedies provided in the Note and has refused to address the Company's offer or to provide any waiver of the repayment of 25% of the proceeds towards repayment. Thus, the Company can only assume that the lender is not interested in early repayment and the Company will plan to make monthly payments starting on February 9, 2023 and will utilize more of the funds raised towards operations and revenue generation.
"This large capital inflow into existing operations is a welcomed event," said Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion Inc. "While we would have preferred to strengthen our balance sheet by repaying the Note, the strong cash flow generated from the available capital provided formidable revenue results. With the recent funds raised, the Company could experience significant revenue growth as we can triple the capital of the original investment. And our projections do not include the full launch of the device protection program, which may prove another significant driver of revenue and margin as we anticipate that division to grow rapidly."
