Vancouver, British Columbia: Hello Pal International Inc. (“Hello Pal” or the “Company”) (CSE:HP Frankfurt:27H OTC:HLLPF), a provider of rapidly growing international live-streaming, language learning and social-crypto platform, is pleased to announce that it has filed its interim financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the period ended August 31, 2021 are filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
“Our current fiscal year has been transformative and resulted in our achieving record revenue of $13,206,275 from livestreaming services and a profit of $1,449,335 from cryptocurrency mining during the six months ended August 31, 2021. Revenue increased 208% compared to the six months ended 2020 with minimal spending on advertising and user generation during that period. With our acquisition of mining rigs, we anticipate that revenue and profit will continue in an upward trend for the balance of the fiscal year.”
- Total revenue of $14,655,610 in 2021 H1 (comprised of $13,206275 for livestreaming and net revenue of $1,449,335 for cryptocurrency) compared to $4,290,312 in 2020 H1.
- Gross profit of $2,488,454 in 2021 H1 (comprised of $1,449,335 for crypto currency mining and $1,039,099 for livestreaming) compared to $185,415 in 2020 H1.
- As of August 31, 2021, cash of $4,091,553 and working capital of $5,176,955
- Positive operating cash of $388,319 before changes in non-cash working capital items.
For the livestreaming operations, the Company experienced a 10,000% increase in revenues from non-China territories compared to the first half of 2020 – in particular the Middle East and Southeast Asia operations which continue to improve in performance. As the Company continually increases the percentage of livestreaming revenues from outside of China, the Company revenues in China increased 90% over the same period, and it expects that the reliance on China livestreaming revenues will continue to decrease.
For the crypto-mining operations, the acquisition of 12,500 Litecoin/Dogecoin mining rigs in May 2021 operated with a gross profit of $1,449,335 for the first half of the financial year. Shanghai Yitang, the Company’s partner in cryptocurrency mining, continues to help manage the Company’s mining operations to ensure the decentralized locations of the mining rigs across various green renewable energy mining sites.
“We are very pleased to see the progress we have made as a Company, and believe that the results are evident in the financial figures,” said KL Wong, Founder and Chairman of the Company. “We are particularly excited in the continued internationalization of our business, as reflected in our expansion of livestreaming services outside China and the integration of cryptocurrency into our platform through our newly launched crypto-mining operations.”
The Company will discontinue announcing monthly revenue and will focus on quarterly results moving forward.
