Tokens.com Announces Q1 2022 Financial Results
Tokens.com Corp. (NEO Exchange Canada: COIN) (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: 76M) (OTCQB US: SMURF) ("Tokens.com" or "the Company"), a publicly-traded company that invests in Web3 crypto assets and businesses linked to the Metaverse and NFT's, is pleased to announce its financial results for the three months ending March 31, 2022 ("Q1 2022"). All dollar figures are in United States dollars ("USD"), unless otherwise stated.
Q1 2022 HIGHLIGHTS:
Metaverse Fashion Week Highlights
Crypto and stock market conditions in Q1 and continuing into Q2, remain volatile. Crypto has continued to sell off since the end of Q1 through to mid-May. During Q2, Tokens.com rebalanced its portfolio and most significantly, sold 90% of its Terra Luna tokens before the price collapsed due to uncertainty around the peg of Terra's UST (TerraUSD) stablecoin. Management was concerned about the consequences of UST depegging on Luna's price and ultimately sold 90% of its tokens above our original purchase price. We do not foresee any material consequences resulting from the crash in the Terra token.
While we remain frustrated by our share price performance, we are not unique in the current sell off in small cap tech stocks. Management believes this to be temporary and is focused on creating shareholder value for the long term through growing its assets and businesses in the Web3 space.
During these volatile times, management is focused on making sure Tokens.com is in a strong cash position and focused on diversifying its business activities beyond just crypto staking, to operating businesses such as Metaverse Group and Hulk Labs. While volatile crypto pricing does impact the value of the assets within these businesses, we continue to see operational growth and do not see the volatility as an impediment to further operational growth in 2022.
"Q1 was a mixed quarter for Tokens.com. While we have been successful in building beyond the staking business in the Metaverse and gaming, our share price has not performed to our expectations," said Andrew Kiguel, CEO. "Metaverse Group has grown from a small entity into one of the largest Metaverse landowners, developers, and landlords. Hulk Labs, while still in its infancy, is showing great growth potential. Overall, we are not only investing in Web3 assets but also leveraging our infrastructure to build exciting new Web3 businesses," added Kiguel.
Tokens.com marks its digital asset inventory to market at the end of every quarter and the total revaluation of digital assets of $(3,491,000) was reflective of the drop in crypto market prices through March 31, 2022.
In addition, Metaverse Group started to generate revenue towards the end of Q1. While the aggregate amount is small, it is significant in that i) Tokens.com has moved beyond relying solely on staking and ii) our thesis that brands and retailers are willing to pay to rent out digital real estate came to fruition. Once Hulk Labs becomes fully operational, we expect to have revenue being generated from all three verticals - Staking, Metaverse Group and Hulk labs.
A complete financial reporting package, including the Unaudited Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion & Analysis, is available on our corporate website (www.tokens.com), and the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com).
An investor call, hosted by CEO Andrew Kiguel, has been scheduled to discuss the Company's Q1 2022 financial results, starting at 4:00 pm ET on Monday, May 16, 2022.
