Strong growth continued in both the Telecommunications Products & Services (mobile recharge platform) and the SMS & MMS texting service.
'The second quarter generated solid revenue of $5.39 million and saw continued growth in year over year revenues,' stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion. 'Growth continues unabated with the SMS texting due to our optimized prepayments of bulk inventory purchases. Contributing to the growth and margin expansion was from the subscription plan and the mobile phone sales. These optimized purchase programs and hardware sales and service improved gross profit from 7% to 13%. The Company is seeing strong demand in SMS from our corporate clientele. This is the third consecutive quarter of Big Data revenues and we expect it to continue and eventually outpace our existing revenue streams.'
General and administrative expenses increased by $601,937 or 71% 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. Research and development expenses increase to $144,549 during the quarter which was up 17% due to high data access and usage fees charged by the telecom companies.
'We are pleased at the strength of our balance sheet which hit a milestone of over $5.0 million in shareholders' equity. This quarter was more of a transition to greater profitability as more of our initiatives started contributing to gross margin. This trend will continue and revenue should ramp as the insurtech business starts to develop. During the past quarter the Company secured a contract with Pacific Life Re, which is a global life reinsurance company. The Company plans to monetize the use of its predictive algorithms to generate insight into the insurance industry.'
