JANUARY NET INCOME UP 29%
Personas Social Incorporated (TSX.V: PRSN) (the “Company” or “Personas”) is pleased to provide a corporate update on January 2022 sales net income as compared to January 2021 sales and net income on Peeks Platform which is one of the key revenue driving platforms that Personas offers in the social media and communications markets.
Net Income and Sales
The company is proud to announce that its sales for the period starting January 1st 2022 and ending January 31st 2022 was $254,809 USD compared to $229,858 USD for the same period in 2021, representing an 11% increase over the same period for 2021. Net income grew approximately 29% for the same period. The disproportionate increase in net revenues was due to the Company levying fees on certain broadcast categories that were previously free to users.
