Non-China revenue rises to 16%
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 achieved over $2,309,889 CAD (11,711,138 CNY) in revenue for the month of February 2021, making it the third consecutive month the Company has achieved monthly revenue of over $2,000,000.
Operating under a CAD/CNY exchange rate of 5.07 as of March 1, 2021, the monthly revenue of $2,309,889 CAD was the second highest it had achieved to date and was much higher than had been anticipated given the shortened month, as well as traditionally weak revenue from China over the Lunar New Year season when many hosts stop livestreaming for as long as a month. Gross margin for the period was 15%.
“What was supposed to have been a very weak month for us revenue-wise has proven to be a nice surprise,” said KL Wong, Founder and Chairman of the Company.
The Company’s non-China revenue continues to grow, and now accounts for 16% of its total revenue, having increased from 10% the previous month. Significantly, the number of non-China livestreamers broadcasting daily has now exceeded China livestreamers.
“As we start to diversify away from the China livestreaming market, we’re very pleased to see our results in the overseas livestreaming market continue to grow, particularly in the broadening base of livestreamers broadcasting on Hello Pal,” added Mr. Wong.
