Mastermind Reports Fiscal Year 2019 Results, Strong Outlook for Fiscal 2020
ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$MMND #Influencer—Mastermind, Inc. (OTC QB: MMND), a leading vertically-integrated digital marketing company that designs, creates and activates marketing initiatives for global brands, today announced financial results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.
Dan Dodson, CEO of Mastermind, commented, “Fiscal 2019 brought significant revenue and expense challenges that we were able to successfully navigate. We are confident that 2020 will be a strong year. In FYE 2019, approximately $1.7 million in expected revenue did not materialize due to (1) the merger of a major client, and (2) a surprise bankruptcy filing of another client. Mastermind had staffed up in anticipation of this work, which resulted in an increase of our personnel expenses over FYE 2018 of approximately $0.5 million. Taken together, Mastermind reported a net loss of approximately $0.8 million for the twelve months of fiscal 2019. We have already made the necessary adjustments to our business, and our balance sheet remains strong with no debt.
“We believe that fiscal 2020 will be a strong year for Mastermind’s core business as we continue to execute our strategic plans. We are continuing to advance our growth initiatives that include an augmented reality marketing offering, digital intelligence and optimization practice, and content marketing automation for new and existing clients. In addition, Mastermind is actively pursuing strategic acquisitions. We are at various stages of discussion and negotiation with several acquisition targets, and are optimistic that one or more will be announced during the year.”

- Total revenue of $4.0 million compared to revenue of $5.2 million for fiscal 2018
