"Our operations have scaled significantly over the last six months. During Q1 2022, we saw revenue reach $9.67 million, an increase of over 800% compared to the same period last fiscal year, while achieving a cash flow positive quarter for the first time in the company's history, a significant milestone in the current market. Having substantial working capital will allow us to continue growing without needing to access additional capital."

Newly acquired American Affiliate continued to enter new U.S. betting markets and delivered outstanding results during one of the busiest quarters for North American sports while our B2B segment continues to gain traction with the launch of MoneyLine Sports.
