Key Business Highlights:
Q3 2023 Key Financial Highlights:
AnalytixInsight owns a 49% equity interest in MarketWall and is thus not consolidated in AnalytixInsight's financial results. Further, MarketWall's financial results include the consolidation of its wholly owned subsidiary InvestoPro.
"We are pleased to see MarketWall consistently posting strong financial results with another record quarter in Q3, positioning that company on a consistent trajectory of profitability and growth for the business," commented Prakash Hariharan, Chairman and CEO of AnalytixInsight. "InvestoPro has been focusing on marketing and customer acquisition efforts alongside continued product development with the launch of the InvestoPro GO app. Additionally, we've been focused on strategically positioning our CapitalCube product to meet the needs of B2B and B2B2C customers, in terms of product features and AI functionalities."
InvestoPro is the digital online stock trading platform launched by MarketWall and Intesa Sanpaolo through MarketWall's wholly owned subsidiary, InvestoPro SIM S.p.A.. InvestoPro SIM S.p.A. has developed its leading-edge platform, trade execution functions, and user applications in partnership with Intesa Sanpaolo. InvestoPro's AUC and customer onboarding grew during the quarter alongside increased marketing efforts for the platform, including new customer promotions and short video advertisement spots for television and digital marketing. In addition, InvestoPro EVO has been developed as a comprehensive multi-device trading platform (e.g., mobile, wearables, smart-TV) that offers online stock trading and intech-enabled services combined with research and financial education.
InvestoPro GO has been developed as a simplified version of InvestoPro that has been purposefully designed for Samsung users in conjunction with InvestoPro's agreement with Samsung Electronics Italia. InvestoPro GO launched a new mobile app in September 2023. The app is available for Italian users in the Google Play and Apple App Store. InvestoPro increased marketing efforts for InvestoPro GO during the quarter, including banner advertisements on Samsung Wallet, Samsung's mobile payment and digital wallet app, providing users of Samsung Wallet access to download the app.
InvestoPro & Samsung
InvestoPro partnered with Samsung Electronics Italia in accordance with a fee per click co-operation agreement and fee per download collaboration agreement entered into in late-2022 and mid-2023, respectively, to profile and recommend the InvestoPro digital trading platform and InvestoPro Go product to Samsung users in Italy. Under the co-operation agreement, Samsung profiled InvestoPro as an exclusive financial app on Samsung's "Quick Access," the start page of the Samsung Internet Browser, in exchange for a fee per click payable by InvestoPro. Pursuant to the collaboration agreement, Samsung recommends InvestoPro to users as an exclusive digital trading app as part of its App Installer in exchange for a fee per download payable by InvestoPro. The App Installer guides users during their first device power on procedure and presents recommended apps in popular, useful, and fun categories. App recommendations can be targeted based on age and gender and can easily be downloaded by tapping the download button. The co-operation agreement expired in November 2023; however, the collaboration agreement continues to be in effect.
Under the Company's Refinitiv AI-driven research initiative, CapitalCube has published more than 92,780 reports on company earnings, dividend quality, and pre-revenue company analysis across 40 countries since the initiative's inception in October 2018. The Company believes its ability to generate machine-created research reports and AI-based fundamental financial analysis on virtually all publicly traded companies worldwide is a market differentiator for trading platforms within the industry, wherein we see both regulators and platform providers are seeking tools to automate the alignment of trading permissions that are matched with the investor's risk appetite.
Euclides Technologies Inc. is AnalytixInsight's workforce management ("WFM") division. Although at an early stage, Euclides in association with CapitalCube and other third parties have also been involved in the development of zero-touch WFM modules with data analytics and customized machine learning algorithms. The product development has been deferred to 2024 from 2023 with a number of customers, notably utilities and power corporations, who have been long standing enterprise customers of Euclides professional services, deferring their capital expenditures into the following year.
In keeping with the Company's increasing focus on fintech opportunities, the Company has commenced a strategic review of its WFM-related platform offerings with the view of leveraging value for this business segment.
