The first quarter generated $4.86 million in revenue. Softness in the quarter was a direct result of "lockdowns" in China which had a significant effect on operations, but towards the end of the quarter, were returning to pre-lockdown levels. "One factor that that seems to be overriding the softness experienced during the lockdown is the migration to 5G," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion. "The mobile recharge business has strong underpinnings and is expected to continue its growth trajectory and a government stimulus plan may provide a boost to revenue as mobile phone sales started trickling in."
General and administrative expenses increased by $59,803 or 5% during the quarter compared to Q1 2022, which was primarily attributable to costs that are a consequence of building out our 5 lines of business simultaneously. Research and development expenses increased to $211,647 during the quarter which was up 56% from Q1 2022 due to an increase in headcount and higher data access and usage fees charged by the telecom companies.
"We are pleased to announce that the company officially launched its device protection insurance program that has the potential for compounding growth month over month if subscriber growth hits expected targets," stated Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion.
