Despite headwinds from the Chinese "lockdowns" during the quarter the Company still grew sequential topline revenue to $4.98 million which represents 2.5% over the preceding quarter. Strong growth continued in both the mobile recharge and big data division. Operations are now turning back to pre-lockdown levels and are expected to resume their growth.
"During the quarter our SMS & MMS business was soft due a number of lockdowns that impacted the demand for SMS messages from our corporate customers who use the service to drive traffic to their retail locations. Fortunately, the Company was able to redistribute resources normally allotted for SMS business toward the mobile recharge business," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion. "Now that we stabilized revenue, our focus is to increase it while at the same time optimizing the product mix to maximize our margins. We would also like to point out that we are starting to see revenue from mobile phone sales and subscriptions. We are very optimistic that we will see notable growth in this area and Big Data in the future."
General and administrative expenses decreased by $169,045 or 12% during the quarter which was a result of lower consulting expenses and wages, but this was partially offset by increased rent and travel expenses primarily attributable to costs that are a consequence of building out our 3 lines of business simultaneously. Research and development expenses increased to $198,104 during the quarter which was up 37% mainly due to higher data access and usage 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 year," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion.
