Vancouver, BC. September 01, 2021 – Marble Financial Inc. (CSE: MRBL; OTC: MRBLF; FSE:2V0) (“Marble” or the “Company”), an AI-driven financial technology company that educates and helps Canadians better understand and manage their current cash flow and credit towards a better financial future, announces interim consolidated finances statements (the “Interim Financial Statements”) and management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) for Q2 2021, representing the three months ended June 30, 2021. Copies of the Interim Financial Statements and MD&A are available on the Company’s website and profile on SEDAR.
“The second quarter of 2021 was an extremely strategic period to help shape the growth of Marble. Building Canada’s most advanced virtual financial wellness solution, MyMarble, we have further expanded the reach of our services to millions of Canadians through key partnerships and acquisition,” said Karim Nanji, Marble CEO. “The groundwork we have completed behind the scenes, along with the acquisition of Inverite, our B2B bank verification and risk scoring SaaS solution, paves the way for continual user growth and revenue for the balance of the year and beyond. Inverite has helped Marble accelerate larger key partnerships that we expect to close and announce throughout the balance of the year.”
- Marble’s total revenue for the three- and six-months ending June 30, 2021 over the same periods in 2020 were $269,910 and $453,368, an increase of 206% and 160% respectively.
- Accelerating its MyMarble subscription revenue, Marble achieved quarterly revenue of $78,265 in Q2 2021, compared to $44,098 in the same period in 2021, an increase of 77%.
- Marble generated interest revenue from its Fast-Track loan portfolio of $167,993 in Q2 2021 (2020 – $185,948). The decrease is primarily due to a lower number of consumer loans outstanding during the period. The Company anticipates with the $10 million credit facility agreement entered into with Cypress Hills Partners Inc. that it will be able to re-start its Fast-Track loan program.
- Inverite, acquired on April 12, 2021, generated $125,298 in Q2 2021 (2020 – $nil) of verification fees from its data verification technology.
- Marble administration costs during Q2 2021 were $495,094 (2020 – $146,451) which increased from the prior year due to the growth of the operations, including the operations of Inverite acquired in April 2021, as the Company works on expanding its product offerings. Administration costs are largely comprised of office expenses, loan issuance costs, computer and technology expenses, telephone and utilities.
- Marble incurred a net loss of $1,199,349 for the three months ended June 30, 2021 (2020 – $824,762). The increase in the loss is primarily due to increased operating expenses as the Marble incurred increased administrative costs to facilitate the growth of operations.
