Record Breaking Revenues
The second quarter of fiscal 2022 proved to be a major inflection point for NXTP stock. The company transformed its business through several highly synergistic acquisitions thereby setting the stage for future growth and expansion. Accordingly, the company reported USD$2.6 million in revenues, with forecasts of more than a doubling of its revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Gross margins are also expected to increase to more than the 51.9% reported for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, as a result of the development of synergies between the company’s divisions.
Building on Success
The company’s M&A activity for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 included the establishment of a new Interactive Digital Media division with the acquisitions of the Hotplay in-game advertising platform. This platform was established at the beginning of the quarter and was followed by the establishment of the Zappware’s Connected TV platform halfway through the quarter. The award winning entertainment media platform extends its reach to tens of millions of devices across Europe, with expansion into Latin America, Asia, and other parts of the world. Hotplay, on the other hand, plugs directly into casual games on set-top boxes, connected TVs, smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

The company expects the addition of Make It Games to further enhance the HotPlay platform with AI-powered video game development technology, resulting in more of a competitive edge. Halfway through the second quarter of fiscal 2022 saw the company acquire IFEB bank, which is now called NextBank International. This acquisition will facilitate the offering of asset banking and management, mobile payments and insurance, and the provision of cryptocurrency services.
