Wellfield Announces $42 Million Preliminary Unaudited Revenue for Three Months Ended December 31st, +118% Compared to Q3
On track to continue growing through 2023 driven by growth at Wellfield Capital, increases in organic Coinmama.com traffic, early success with new user acquisition efforts, and efforts aimed to enhance monetization of Coinmama's over 3.5 million registered users. The Company expects gross margin in Q4 to be approximately breakeven, consistent with Q3 2022.
Recently closed acquisition of Tradewind Markets expected to add to Revenue in 2023 as Wellfield opens access to VaultChain™ Gold and VaultChain™ Silver to its user base, launches a regulated blockchain-based spot market for gold and silver, and integrates its proprietary decentralized services into the VaultChain™ offerings.
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 10, 2023) - Wellfield Technologies, Inc. (TSXV: WFLD) (OTCQB: WFLDF) (FSE: K8D) (the "Company" or "Wellfield"), today announced preliminary unaudited revenue of $42 million for the three-month period ended December 31, 2022. This compares to revenue of $19.3 million in Q3 2022 (ended September 30th), $5.7 million in Q2 2022 (which includes one month of Coinmama results), and nil revenue in Q1 2022. The Company will release its full financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2022, by March 1, 2023. The Company recently changed its financial year-end from December 31 to March 31 in order to allow its newly appointed auditor sufficient time to review and audit the Company's requisite financial filings. All figures in this press release are in Canadian Dollars ($).
Levy Cohen, CEO of Wellfield, commented, "The hard work of our global team translated into strong revenue growth that accelerated through the end of the calendar year, driven by solid performance at Coinmama as well as the launch of Wellfield Capital.
"Looking at 2023, we see several well-defined opportunities for growth and expect it to be an even more important year for our organization's expansion. Over the next 12 months we will focus our efforts on both user growth and the commercialisation of our proprietary decentralized products and services, beginning with the powerful volatility and fixed income products we launched with select partners in mid December last year.
"In addition, with our acquisition of Tradewind Markets closing earlier this week, we see a meaningful opportunity to begin creating what we expect will be a transformational precious metals platform that will benefit both investors in metals, as well as producers. By driving consistent enhancements and unique products to our user base during 2023, we expect to continue growing Revenue while creating value for shareholders."
