Strong profitability emerged in the quarter as we set a new record of $967,075 in gross profit.
"The third quarter finished strong with $5.9 million in revenue and an acceleration of our top up business," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion. "During the quarter we were aggressive in rolling out our collaboration with China Mobile in the Fujian province. We had to reallocate our resources into telecom which slowed the spectacular revenue growth in SMS that we had seen in the past. While there was no revenue from big data during the current quarter, there was considerable time spent on continuing discussions with Pacific Life Re, the global life reinsurance company."
General and administrative expenses increased by $727,564 or 92% during the quarter which was primarily attributable to increased consulting and staff salaries that are a consequence of building out our 3 lines of business simultaneously. Marketing costs increased $103,339 or 75% which was due to the cost of promoting our product offerings on a variety of our platforms. Research and development expenses increased to $158,055 during the quarter which was up 27% due to high data access and usage fees charged by the telecom companies.
"Our balance sheet continues to strengthen with over $5.6 million in shareholders equity," stated Martin Shen. "This quarter showed record profitability as gross margin continued to grow. We expect this trend in gross margins to continue, and revenue should ramp as the insurtech business starts to unfold. During the past quarter the Company announced the formation of two new brands in order to provide mobile device protection in China. Beta testing is underway and could start contributing to revenue in the current quarter. The Company anticipates this could represent a significant revenue stream in the next fiscal year."
