SHANGHAI, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Warren Wang, CEO of ChineseInvestors.COM (OTCBB: CIIX) announced 4th quarter revenues increased 16% (from $230,043 to $272,572) over 3rd quarter revenues for FY 2013. Revenues for the entire year were up approximately 6% over the prior year totaling $897,105. Net losses for the year were significantly higher than last year, just over $1.7M and were primarily attributable to the expenses associated with becoming a public company, the costs of raising additional capital (private placement memorandum and public shares registration), public company operating costs, costs of options awarded, and an increase in general operating expenses as associated with the deployment of several new business lines.
Mr. Wang expressed optimism in that there were several new business development opportunities undertaken in the last two quarters of this year (2012) that should create a significant increase in our revenues for the upcoming year as well as help the Company achieve its current profitability objective in the 4th quarter of FY 2013. Highlights this year include:
- Becoming a public company on the OTCBB (QB, February 2012)
- Entered into a new relationship with KrisWorld Development Limited of Hong Kong in support of its binary options business including the establishment of a client service center in Shanghai, China which has added a significant new revenue source (December 2012)
- Completion of a convertible preferred private placement offering; raising $2M USD (March 2012)
- Established a consulting services division to assist private enterprises (Globally) in their consideration of becoming a public company in the US (April of 2012)
- Secured a $1.5M equity line of credit through an S1 filing in conjunction with Kodiak Capital Group LLC (May of 2012)
Mr. Wang also noted that the Company plans to conduct its annual Shareholder Meeting on or about October 20th, 2012 in Arcadia California as noted in its current DEF14 proxy filing.
