“The primary increase to operating expenses was due to non-cash and non-recurring expenses. Our focus on revenue growth and technology enhancements creates the opportunity to expand into different market sectors. The BIX platform continues to demonstrate its strength and applicability. R&D projects have converted to pilot projects with customers, and some are starting to commercialize. Moving from R&D towards commercialization, revenue may drop for a period of time as the fee for service income converts to volume-based income,” said Hubert Lau, TrustBIX CEO. “Revenue from the BIX platform is expected to scale up as the Company penetrates more market sectors with more commercialization customers. In addition, unanticipated delays in contracts to be signed led to the temporary drop in our 2022 revenue.”
