CEO's comments

The results for the first quarter has highlighted weaknesses in the company's operational business structure. We have identified necessary actions and are implementing these, alongside a new and revised strategy.

The slump in revenues is mainly due to our key partner in the Philippines and its retailers have not followed through on their commitments. In January, the partner was replaced by Ambientmedia, a part of a conglomerate with a proven track record of productivity. Our new partner also took over unsold inventory. Together we have devised an action plan to decrease the inventory. A decrease in inventory at our new partner will have a positive impact on Mavshack's cash flow, but no effect on sales.

Another challenge we are addressing is the net loss of recurring subscribers. Our analysis shows that higher relevance and frequency of content library updates would make the service more attractive. As previously announced, Mavshack has begun working on acquiring relevant content that attracts and maintains paying subscribers. Improving user experience on all our platforms is also an important factor to attract more recurring customers.

Our priority going forward is to establish stable and reliable revenue streams. We have pinpointed two specific areas to increase revenues.

Firstly, the company's sales strategy needs to focus on Indian and Filipino populations outside of their home countries.

Secondly, Mavshack will add new revenue streams from proprietary content. By producing proprietary TV series or films, Mavshack can sell content to other platforms while making it available on the global Mavshack service.

Mavshack has the ingredients to create sustainable revenue streams that will generate a positive cash flow. All this will not be done by tomorrow but we are on our way.

Summing up, Mavshack is a contender in a competitive and fast growing industry. Through stable revenue streams from subscription sales and content rights, Mavshack is positioned to become a successful player within Asian entertainment for a global audience.
