The report also showed that FingerMotion has improved its balance sheet and exceeded the quarterly milestone of more than $10 million in revenue for the quarter. In addition, the report indicated a 10% increase in general and administrative expenses, which was attributed to additional consulting, travel and entertainment expenses related to potential funding activities as well as information technology and technical fees. Research and development expenses came in at $172,099 during the quarter, which was a 19% decrease. “The Chinese ‘lockdowns’ are over now, but during the quarter they still had an impact on the company’s revenue mix,” said FingerMotion CEO Martin Shen in the press release. “The company managed the quarter by focusing available resources to the top-up business. During the lockdown, our corporate SMS & MMS customers were not interested in driving traffic to retail establishments that were closed. Now that China has opened up again, the company expects an upward trend in revenue growth and a rebound in its margins in the ensuing quarter. We are also optimistic that we will see notable growth in our Big Data division in the future.”
