Financial Report Articles: US GAAP Analysis and Share-Based Compensation

The financial report highlights key events and developments, such as the issuance of preferred and common stock, additional paid-in capital, and retained earnings. The report also mentions share-based compensation awards for the first tranche. The financial performance is presented in accordance with US-GAAP.


The company’s revenue increased to $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2024, up 19.5% from $1.6 million in the same period last year. For the six months ended March 31, 2024, revenue was $3.7 million, up 15.8% from $3.2 million in the prior year period. This growth was driven by higher customer retention rates and increased consulting projects and third-party service sales.

However, profitability decreased due to lower gross margins and higher operating expenses. Gross margin declined from 45.6% to 45.0% in the quarter and from 50.6% to 46.8% in the six month period. This was caused by less efficient utilization of services staff and more low-margin third-party software/service sales.


The company made significant cuts to operating expenses, reducing total operating expenses 29.3% in the quarter and 27.2% in the six month period versus last year (see table below). These reductions included headcount cuts across the executive team, sales/marketing, and R&D as well as eliminating investor relations spending. The goal was to reach positive cash flow from operations in fiscal 2024.

Expense Q1 2024 Q1 2023 Change
General & Administrative $849,000 $990,000 -14.2%
Sales & Marketing $156,000 $437,000 -64.3%
R&D $123,000 $168,000 -26.8%
Total Operating Expenses $1,128,000 $1,595,000 -29.3%

Profitability & Cash Flow

The operating loss narrowed from $858,000 in Q1 2023 to $260,000 in Q1 2024 due to higher revenues and lower operating expenses. For the six months ended March 31, 2024, the operating loss was $519,000 compared to a $1,465,000 loss last year.

The company has an accumulated deficit of $19.4 million as of March 31, 2024, driven primarily by three non-recurring expenses:

  • $6.2 million for acquisition costs
  • $5.7 million goodwill impairment
  • $4.9 million intangible asset impairment

Cash reserves were $851,000 as of March 31, 2024. The company believes it has sufficient cash to fund operations through at least June 30, 2025. The goal is to achieve sustainable positive cash flow from operations, but the timing is still uncertain.


In summary, the business showed improved revenue growth and expense control in the most recent periods. If these trends continue, the company could reach break-even profitability by next year. However, challenges remain due to high accumulated losses, uncertainty around achieving positive cash flow, and the need to maintain strong performance after deep expense cuts.
