Operating Subsidiaries

iGenius net revenue in the second quarter of 2023 was $14.4 million, an increase of $2.8 million or 24.2% over the comparable period in 2022; with the increase attributable to a $3.2 million or 29.2% increase in subscription revenue, partially offset by a $0.4 million decrease in ndau sales. Net revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2023 was $25.9 million, an increase of $0.1 million or 0.4% over the comparable period in 2022.

SAFETek net revenue in the second quarter of 2023 was $2.8 million, a decrease of $0.3 million or 10.1% over the comparable period in 2022. Net revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2023 was $4.9 million, a decrease of $1.8 million or 26.8% over the comparable period in 2022. The 10.1% and 26.8% decrease in net revenue was the result of the decrease in the value of Bitcoin, an increase in mining difficulty levels, the migration of mining serves to a new data center and increased hosting costs, partially offset by the replacement of older less efficient Bitcoin mining equipment with new generation higher performing miners.

Operational Highlights

The Company continues to expand on its Bitcoin mining operations. During the six-month period ended June 30, 2023, SAFETek, our Blockchain technology subsidiary, purchased 1,350 new next-generation mining servers. This expansion extends the Company’s initiative to use low-carbon and renewable energy sources in its mining operations. With the new mining server expansion completed and fully deployed, SAFETek has all of its mining servers operating from 100% renewable energy sources and the latest generation and highest efficiency mining technology. This expansion increased SAFETek’s total operational hash rate capacity to approximately 480+ Petahash per Second (equal to .480 EH/s Exahash per Second), representing a nearly 50% increase in operational hash rate to SAFETek’s online hash rate capacity.

SAFETek’s mining server expansion increased the Company’s mining fleet operating at its Bitcoin mining farm in Europe, which operates on 100% renewable energy sources of hydro and geothermal energy. SAFETek has significantly reduced its direct operational costs since relocating all of its miners to Europe, aided by the abundance of renewable and clean energy sources and favorable climate conditions available from areas which have year-round average temperatures below 50 degrees F.

Investview Chief Executive Officer Victor M. Oviedo commented, “The second quarter of 2023 marked a period of strong momentum marked by several transformational milestones for Investview; with SAFETek and the Bitcoin industry emerging from the depths of the downturn and macro conditions became incrementally more favorable; and iGenius measurable increases of $3.2 million or 29% in our subscription revenue, due to significant product enhancements and expansion into new markets globally, resulting in substantial growth in our membership. As we progress in 2023, we remain committed to preserving our balance sheet while adopting a more opportunistic approach to capitalize on compelling value propositions in the market. Moving forward, we will continue to focus on what we can control and setting the stage for long-term value creation for all Investview stakeholders.

“After a bit of a slow start to the year, we accelerated our progress in the second quarter primarily due to a few key factors: (i) growth in SAFETek’s overall hash rate(ii) SAFETek execution of cost reductions and improved efficiency strategies (iii) increased marketing for iGenius and (iv) growth of 29% in the iGenius’s subscription revenue, due to product enhancements and expansion into new markets globally, resulting in substantial growth in our subscription business,” said Ralph Valvano, Investview’s CFO. In addition to our operational progress, we also improved our financial position during the quarter. We exited the quarter with $21.4 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and net cash provided by operating activities of $4.0 million for six months ended 2023.

Ralph Valvano, added, “We have experienced significant revenue growth this quarter and continue to recognize positive net income from operations and an increase in stockholders’ equity, despite industry headwinds and significant non-recurring operating costs. We continue to manage our balance sheet by investing in new next-generation equipment, paying down debt, while maintaining a strong liquid cash position. Throughout the quarter, we remained laser focused on optimizing our operations across both our SAFETek mining and high performance computing and iGenius business operations. Our conservative approach to managing our balance sheet continues to be paramount for us at Investview, Inc. We remain steadfastly committed to effectively managing capital in today’s challenging environment and believe we are well positioned to deliver shareholder value going forward in 2023 and beyond.”
