Management Commentary

Prakash Hariharan, President & CEO of AnalytixInsight, commented: “Our fiscal Q1 results were on track with our plans. We continue to advance our work with Refinitiv, one of the world’s largest providers of financial markets data, who is now distributing CapitalCube content to their clients. Marketwall recorded one of its strongest quarters following a successful stock-trading app launch by Intesa Sanpaolo, a leading bank in Europe, and we believe it is very well positioned as a leading FinTech provider.”

CapitalCube

The Company has completed its systems integration relating to its AI-driven research distribution agreement with Refinitiv, the former Financial & Risk business of Thomson Reuters. The Company is now publishing pre-revenue research reports created by CapitalCube to Refinitiv’s Eikon users. AnalytixInsight and Refinitiv continue to expand the number of companies under coverage and collaborate on new reports that include worldwide companies that are not otherwise covered by traditional analyst research.

On October 1, 2018, The Blackstone Group L.P. and Thomson Reuters Corp. completed a partnership transaction to form Refinitiv, at an overall valuation of US$20 billion. The new Refinitiv business expects to invest in a number of key areas including AI and analytics to serve its customer base, which currently includes 40,000 institutions in over 190 countries.

Over the past 18 months, the Company has extensively developed a Robo-Advisor on the CapitalCube platform, which it expects to commercially deploy to clients and money managers in the future. The Company is also nearing completion of a new graphical user interface for CapitalCube which contains several updated improvements and ease-of-use features. This new version also improves navigation within CapitalCube for both desktop and mobile users, allowing users to efficiently research stocks and ETFs with speed and ease.

Workforce Optimization

The Company’s Workforce Optimization division joined the IFS Partner Network during 2018. IFS is a world leader in developing workforce optimization enterprise software for global customers who manage service-focused operations. AnalytixInsight plans to explore opportunities with IFS to jointly develop machine intelligence solutions to help organizations maximize operational efficiency, increase revenue, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.

Marketwall

Marketwall, a developer of FinTech solutions, is 49% owned by AnalytixInsight, and 33% owned by Intesa Sanpaolo.

Marketwall revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was $1,443,625, one of the strongest quarters in its history and an increase of 69% compared to $852,641 during the same period in the previous year. Marketwall’s revenues are not included in AnalytixInsight’s consolidated revenue.

Marketwall developed the Intesa Sanpaolo Investo stock-trading app which was launched to Intesa Sanpaolo customers during 2018. Investo is part of Intesa Sanpaolo’s mobile app constellation which provides access to banking services, financing, savings, and investing.

Intesa Sanpaolo is a leading bank in Europe with approximately 11.9 million customers, has a network of approximately 4,400 branches throughout Italy, and has emerged as Italy's first digital bank. It was ranked as one of the three best digital banks in Europe according to the report “2017 European Online Banking Functionality Benchmark” by Forrester Research. Intesa Sanpaolo reports approximately 8 million multi-channel customers, of which 3 million are now using the Intesa Sanpaolo Mobile banking app with 56 million logins per month on the app alone, and 53 million mobile transactions with the app since the start of 2018. On November 30, 2018, Intesa Sanpaolo reported strong adoption of mobile apps and announced plans to invest 2.8 billion euros over the next three years to increase the bank’s digitized business to 70%.  

Now that the Investo app has been successfully deployed, the major shareholders of Marketwall have initiated discussions to evaluate a spinout or other initiatives that the Company anticipates will allow it to recognize the corresponding value associated with its 49% ownership of Marketwall. The Company expects this strategy to be finalized during the first half of 2019 and intends to provide market updates on the plans and strategic initiatives for Marketwall as they develop.
