NEW YORK, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FingerMotion, Inc. (OTC QB: FNGR), a US fintech company with mobile payment and recharge platform operations in China, is pleased to announce that the company’s Gross Transaction Volume (GTV) for the first quarter was $157 million, which represents a 36% quarter over quarter increase versus the $115 million achieved in the fourth quarter, which ended February 28th. This would translate to an annualized run rate of $600 million.
Due to technical integration issues, the SMS business commenced in mid-May, approximately one month later than anticipated. However, for the two-week period, estimated unaudited SMS revenues were 1,068,313 RMB (USD $150,000) and greatly exceeded the Company’s entire first-month projection of 600,000 RMB (USD $84,000) by 78%.
Martin Shen, CEO of FingerMotion, Inc. said:
|“The interest in our platform is growing from top-tier e-commerce platforms. We are deeply focused on our business development and expect to have our next large e-commerce platform launched in the next several weeks, with more in our pipeline. We are very pleased with our quarter over quarter growth and expect it to accelerate.|
|In addition, the SMS business is now operating at a very efficient level, and we are surpassing even our internal projections. It is our belief that we are moving quickly toward profitability, which makes us even more attractive to investors and partners.”|
About FingerMotion Inc.

The longer-term focus will be to develop a marketing platform capable of leveraging all the meta data that is collected by the top telecom companies into a predictive model that is able to isolate and extract consumer behavior and habits for future monetization.
