LAS VEGAS, NV – (NewMediaWire) – February 22, 2022 – Golden Matrix Group, Inc. (OTCQX: GMGI)(“GMGI” or the “Company”), a developer and licenser of gaming platforms, systems and gaming content, today announced it expects to achieve a record quarterly revenues of approximately $7.7 million in the first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2022.
This represents an estimated 295% improvement on revenues of $1,951,406 in the comparable year-ago quarter and an increase of 124% on the previous quarter.
Prior to Q1 ’22, Golden Matrix revenues were derived primarily from licensing fees received from gaming operators located in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region and integrated with the Company’s state-of-the-art GM-X platform. As a result of the Company’s recent acquisition of an 80 percent controlling ownership interest in UK-based RKingsCompetitions Ltd (“Rkings”), this record first quarter included significant revenue contributions from Rkings’ business-to-consumer (B2C) skill tournaments.
There are currently more than 580 operators and 6 million registered users across all of GMGI’s traditional gaming platforms. Additionally, Rkings’ competitions engaged more than 33,000 participants during the first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2022.
“As expected, Rkings is having an immediate positive impact on our financial performance,” said Golden Matrix CEO, Brian Goodman, “It has given us entry into a well-established B2C vertical in a new international market; and, with its highly popular offerings, coupled with historical nominal player acquisition costs, we believe that Rkings can be expanded into other regions, subject to regulatory compliance, and continue to boost our overall revenues and profitability.”
Mr. Goodman added, “GMGI’s strong balance sheet and current cash position of about $14.9 million is expected to help facilitate expansion into new markets and facilitate additional acquisitions during calendar 2022.”
Further information regarding the results of GMGI’s operations for the first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2022 will be included in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q which the Company plans to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission before March 10, 2022.
