Management Commentary

Mr. Yucheng Hu, CEO of Mega Matrix Corp. said, "In Q1 of 2024, our efforts to bolster FlexTV's development were validated as we witnessed significant traction and engagement on the platform. The rapid uptake by users underscores the appeal of our curated short drama content, tailored for the vertical screen format.

Building on this momentum, our focus for the remainder of the year is on further enriching the FlexTV experience. We are committed to expanding our content library, nurturing studios that supply content to our platform, forging strategic partnerships, and enhancing user engagement features to ensure that FlexTV remains at the forefront of the evolving entertainment landscape.

We attained our financial results by releasing only four self-producing English short dramas tailored for English-speaking world in 2024 Q1. Mega Matrix recognizes that captivating storylines are both the cornerstone and bottleneck of successful short dramas. Consequently, we have strengthened our script team, significantly enlarging its size by about 10 times and refining the script writing process. The newly reinforced team is now poised to produce 5 to 10 short dramas per month starting from June 2024.

The success we've experienced in Q1 reaffirms our belief in FlexTV's potential to revolutionize the way audiences consume content in the digital age. We are excited to continue driving innovation and delivering compelling entertainment experiences that resonate with viewers worldwide, all while maximizing value for our shareholders."

Key Metrics

The numbers for our key metrics, which include our quarterly active users (QAU), quarterly paying users (QPU), average membership and top-up streaming service revenue per active user (ARPU), and average membership and top-up streaming service revenue per paying user (ARPPU), are calculated using internal company data based on the activity of user accounts. We define an active user as a user who has downloaded and opened FlexTV app at least once. We define a paying user as a user who has registered for a membership or topping up, provided a method of payment, and is entitled to access FlexTV services (this membership or topping up does not include participation in free trials or other promotional offers extended by FlexTV to new users). We define ARPU as average membership and top-up streaming services revenue generated by each active user in one quarter. We define ARPPU as average membership and top-up streaming services revenue generated by each paying user in one quarter. We use these metrics to assess the growth and health of the overall business and believe that ARPU best reflects our ability to attract, retain, engage and monetize our users, and thereby drive revenue. While these numbers are based on what we believe to be reasonable estimates of our user base for the applicable period of measurement, there are inherent challenges in measuring usage of our products across large online and mobile populations around the world. In addition, we are continually seeking to improve our estimates of our user base, and such estimates may change due to improvements or changes in technology or our methodology.
