Las Vegas, NV – (NewMediaWire) – March 8, 2022 – Golden Matrix Group Inc. (OTCQX:GMGI)(the “Company” or “GMGI”), a developer and licensor of online gaming platforms, systems and gaming content, today reported that it had achieved record revenues of $8,877,105** in its first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2022.

Highlights for the Three Months Ended January 31, 2022:

  • Record revenues of $8,877,105**, an increase of 355% on revenues of $1,951,406 in the like year-ago quarter. 
  • Net income attributable to GMGI of $349,379 versus $52,158 in the like year-ago quarter. 
  • Cash-on-hand of $15,242,266** and total assets of $32,134,960**. 
  • Total liabilities of $4,557,195** – $4,412,947** current; and $144,248** non-current.

** The revenues, cash-on-hand, total assets, and total liabilities (including both current and non-current) referenced in this press release include the 20% held in Rkings Competitions Ltd by minority interests. More detailed information on minority interest factors can be found in our most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

The Company also noted it has recorded 14 consecutive quarters of profitability.

The significant increase in Q1 ‘23 revenues over the revenues recorded in the like year-ago quarter was primarily a result of an increase in GMGI’s traditional B2B segment, in addition to strong revenue contributions from UK-based RKings, which was responsible for $5.5 million**, of the total revenues in the quarter, and which was acquired effective November 1, 2021.

“We are excited to report our first quarter as a company with both B2B and B2C verticals,” said Golden Matrix CEO Brian Goodman, who continued, “The integration of the two divisions has gone smoothly, and we have already begun to implement upgraded technology and stronger accounting controls with the goal of improving cash flow and profitability at RKings, and enable us to introduce the RKings’ platform into additional markets worldwide. As reported last week, we have already launched plans to expand RKings into a regulated Latin American market as soon as our Mexican Gaming License is approved.”

Mr. Goodman concluded, “We enter the remainder of 2022 with two robust operating divisions and a strong balance sheet. As stated previously, we continue to evaluate new opportunities in both the B2B and B2C spaces that we believe will further accelerate GMGI’s overall revenue growth and – in accordance with our acquisition strategy – are always accretive to earnings.”
