CEO Commentary and Outlook

Chairman and CEO Brian Cox commented on third quarter results, “The third quarter for SurgePays was about disciplined growth while maintaining a velocity resulting in a 2.5X revenue increase and surpassing our 2022 year-end goal of 200,000 mobile broadband (wireless) subscribers. We continued our growth curve without dilutive capital raises through planning and discipline.  In a turbulent economy, our team is successfully forging ahead focused on defined targets of subscribers, stores on our network, and revenue.

Once we hit 150,000 mobile broadband subscribers, we analyzed our efficiency in purchasing wireless equipment, margins, and retention. This evaluation has led to margin expansion in both our equipment and service provision.  We have also implemented new protocols to enhance customer retention.”

“By adding ACP enrollments to our SurgePays platform for convenience stores, we can accelerate our growth goals due to being the only company we are aware of offering ACP at the community stores where the underbanked most frequently shop. These stores accept SNAP(EBT), a qualifying program. At the register, the clerk can quickly submit customer data needed for our compliance specialists to activate the customer.  By adding this offering to our suite of prepaid products for the store owner, we should see rapid growth in our total store count.

Mr. Cox concluded: “I have been very open about not measuring our company by quarters, but the trajectory to hit subscriber and revenue goals while improving the Cap Table. We are executing with real-time results in the middle of a land grab. I believe we have barely scratched the surface and will continue to refine our sales and operating practices to maximize the rapid scaling of our sales and revenue.”
