NEW YORK and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Treasure Global Inc (NASDAQ: TGL) (“TGI”, or the “Company”), an innovative e-commerce platform providing seamless payment solutions and rewards programs, today reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022.

“During the fiscal year 2022 and subsequent months, the entire TGI team have worked diligently to grow its innovative e-commerce business while simultaneously preparing to take the Company public. We are extremely proud to report record total revenues of $79.7 million for the fiscal year 2022, an increase of 468 percent year-over-year. In addition to our proprietary product, ZCITY, reaching over 2.3 million registered users, 230k monthly active users as of November 2022. This growth was achieved despite COVID-19 restrictions in Malaysia, which were only lifted in April 2022,” said Sam Teo, Chief Executive Officer of TGI. “In August 2022, we successfully completed our initial public offering raising gross proceeds of $9.2 million, which included the exercise by the underwriter of their over-allotment option in full, and listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. This was a significant milestone for the Company as we entered the next chapter of TGI’s growth story.”

“We are at the beginning of our journey with significant growth opportunities ahead, through the application of our proprietary developed AI technology, we can offer consumers a more personalized and targeted rewards offering/experience. As we continue to grow and refine how we analyze our customer data, we will continue to develop strategies to increase engagement and develop products and services that generate higher margins for our business. TGI is focused on growing our gross profit through fiscal year 2023 and beyond by increasing user engagement through new products and services, such as our first product in our “solutions” strategy, Tazte, to generate increased profit and enhanced margins. We are looking to the future and the next stage of delivering on our growth plans of expanding further into the South-East Asia region and Japan. With a strong balance sheet, year-on-year growth momentum, a large total addressable market and a robust regional expansion strategy, TGI is well placed for the future,” concluded Mr. Teo.

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year 2022

Total revenues for the fiscal year 2022 were approximately $79.7 million, up 468% from $14.0 million for the fiscal year 2021. This was primarily due to the substantial growth of ZCITY registered users, in turn enhancing platform traffic and its revenue streams including product revenue, loyalty program revenue, transaction revenue and member subscription revenue.

Gross profit for the fiscal year 2022 was approximately $0.5 million, a 240% improvement year-on-year from approximately $0.1 million for the fiscal year 2021. This increase was primarily due to increased product, loyalty and transaction revenue as result of registered user and active user growth.

Net loss was approximately $11.7 million for the fiscal year 2022 compared to $7.9 million for the fiscal year 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents were approximately $1.8 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to approximately $2.8 million as of June 30, 2021.

Subsequent to the quarter end, TGI completed an upsized IPO raising net proceeds of approximately $8.2 million after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions, and other offering expenses. Additionally, the Company received drawdowns of approximately $2.7 million under its existing Tophill Loan Agreement 2 whereby upon the IPO, all principal and accrued and unpaid interest outstanding was automatically converted into shares of TGL common stock at a conversion price equal to 80% of the IPO price. With its strengthened balance sheet, management believes there is sufficient runway to fund its strategic growth plans and new product developments over the next year and beyond.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2023

We believe that the outlook for economic growth in the South-East Asian region is positive as the region recovers from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company's plans for regional expansion and new product development, including Tazte, remain on track.
