  • Record Revenue: The company recorded quarterly revenue of $8,227,089 representing the highest quarterly revenue mark in corporate history.  This was driven by strong results for QYOU USA, along with the beginning of revenue contribution from the direct-to-consumer gaming business in India.  Revenue on  a YOY basis increased by $1,180,640 or 17%.

  • Improved Adjusted EBITDA*: For the three months ended March 31, 2024 compared to same period prior year, Adjusted EBITDA improved by $276,654 or 36% driven by QYOU USA’s strong revenue growth and a meaningful return on strategic investment in the gaming segment, digital channels, workforce and new relationships in the social media space.

  • Improved Net Loss: For the three months ended March 31, 2024, net loss improved by $146,854 or 10% compared to the same period prior year, most significantly driven by strong revenue growth offset by an increase in workforce and other operating expenses associated with building the gaming segment and new relationships in the social media space.

The decrease in cash used in operating activities is primarily due to the increase in collection of trade receivables.


QYOU Media CEO and Co-Founder, Curt Marvis commented, “Q1 2024 marked a powerful rebound for our business particularly driven by the strong performance of our QYOU USA business unit along with the early contributions coming from our India based gaming business. It is obviously very gratifying to see us reach an all time quarterly revenue record while also improving our Adjusted EBITDA results. This year we will continue to be focused on optimizing the value of each of our business units and assets to drive consistent and predictable growth in the future.”


*Note on Adjusted EBITDA:


To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), we present Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) which is a non-IFRS financial measure. The presentation of non-IFRS financial measurement are not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, or superior to, operating loss or net income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities or any other measures of cash flows or liquidity.


We define earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA") as revenue minus operating expenses excluding non-cash and or non-recurring operating expenses of stock-based compensation, marketing credits, depreciation and amortization (interest and taxes are not included in the Company's operating expenses). Adjusted EBITDA is used as an internal measure to evaluate the performance of our operating segments. We believe that information about this non-IFRS financial measure assists investors by allowing them to evaluate changes in operating results of our business separate from non-operational factors that affect operating income (loss) and net income (loss), thus providing insights into both operations and other factors that affect reported results. A limitation of the use of Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure is that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain amortizing assets used in generating revenue in our business. Furthermore, this measure may vary among companies; thus Adjusted EBITDA as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

(“ICP”) to provide ‘market making’ services for a monthly service fee of $7,500 per month. The services began on February 1, 2024 and ended on April 30, 2024.
