Q2 2022 Financial Results
For the quarter ended May 31, 2022, sales increased by $1,656,097 to $1,657,470 from $1,373 for the comparative quarter due to the acquisitions of IndieFlix, iGEMS, and DCU.

Gross profit increased by $626,924 to $496,618 for the quarter ended May 31, 2022 from a loss of $130,306 for the comparative quarter. The increase in gross profit is attributable to the Company acquiring IndieFlix and DCU which had, and continue to have, positive gross profit prior to the acquisition and the Company writing off three license agreements during 2021 that no longer needed to be amortized during the current quarter.

Operating expenses increased by $1,097,014 to $2,508,889 for the quarter ended May 31, 2022 from $1,411,875 for the comparative quarter. Further information can be obtained from the Company’s filings on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
