Key Business Highlights
Key Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2023
AnalytixInsight's ownership of MarketWall is 49% and thus MarketWall is not consolidated in AnalytixInsight's financial results. MarketWall's financial results include the consolidation of its wholly owned subsidiary InvestoPro.
"These first quarter results demonstrate the positive impact that MarketWall is having on our business," commented Prakash Hariharan, Chairman and CEO of AnalytixInsight. "MarketWall posted strong financial results on the back of the new recurring revenue license agreement with our bank partner, which positions us on a pathway toward profitability and growth. InvestoPro's assets under custody grew during the quarter, boosted by its Samsung partnership and retail user interest in its unique product offering."
MarketWall License Agreement Renewal
During the quarter, MarketWall executed a renewed product licensing and IT services agreement (the "Agreement") with Intesa Sanpaolo, pursuant to which the latter agreed to pay MarketWall 4 million euros per year. The Agreement is in relation to licensing rights granted to Intesa Sanpaolo for the Intesa Sanpaolo Investo App, which was developed by MarketWall, and replaces a previous agreement under which Intesa Sanpaolo was paying MarketWall approximately 1.2 million euros per year. The Agreement is for an initial two-year term beginning January 1, 2023, plus a renewal option by Intesa Sanpaolo for a subsequent two-year term. Pursuant to the Agreement, Intesa Sanpaolo has paid to MarketWall the annual consideration for the first year. The Agreement also includes alignment on a path towards the monetization of MarketWall inclding, subject to several conditions and approvals, a potential initial public offering to reflect the growth in value of the business.

CapitalCube continues to develop sentiment analysis tools to measure and score unstructured data elements that influence stock price movements. These unstructured data elements include social media sentiment analysis, short interest scores, business relationship insights, news sentiment, and unique sentiment driven ESG scores. These sentiment analysis tools align with the Company's strategy to build unique and disruptive AI and machine learning tools for the capital markets and wealth management industries to evaluate the recent proliferation of sentiment-driven trading and asymmetric behavioural responses to information flows, particularly that observed in social media.
Under the Company's Refinitiv AI-driven research initiative, CapitalCube published 10,229 company research reports during the first quarter of 2023. Approximately 85,000 research reports have been published in 40 countries under the Refinitiv initiative since 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.
