The Company exceeded the quarterly milestone of over $10 million in revenue for the quarter. The Company anticipates even greater revenue growth in the upcoming months as it deploys some of the $11 million held in reserve, which was raised pursuant to private placements in November 2022.
"The Chinese ‘lockdowns' are over now, but during the quarter they still had an impact on the Company's revenue mix," said Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion Inc. "The Company managed the quarter by focusing available resources to the Top-up business as our corporate SMS customers were not interested in driving traffic to retail establishments that were closed. Now that China has opened up again the Company expects a resumption of the upward trend and a dramatic acceleration in topline revenue growth. And while margins were temporarily depressed, they are expected to rebound substantially in the ensuing quarter. We are also encouraged to see the start of revenue from mobile phone sales and subscriptions. We are very optimistic that we will see notable growth in this area and the Big Data in the future."
General and administrative expenses increased by $114,686 or 8% during the quarter which was a result of an increase in consulting, travel, and other expenses related to the funding and promotional activities for the quarter. Research and development expenses increase to $180,158 during the quarter which was up 14% due to higher data access fees charged by the telecom companies.
"The device protection business is nearing the end of its test phase and the Company anticipates a full launch by the end of this fiscal year."
