Financial Highlights for the 12-Month Periods Ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021
- Revenues increased 19% to $1,048,012 from $880,340.

This compared to DTC revenues of $778,571 and wholesale revenues of $101,769 in the prior year.
- Gross profit margin on sales rose to 68% from 55%.
- After factoring higher expenses due primarily to the legal, accounting and specialty consulting costs associated with the Company's lead-up to and preparation for its Initial Public Offering completed in January 2023, coupled with higher royalty expense paid to Leo Messi Management in 2022, net loss attributable to MGO stockholders in 2022 climbed 185% to $2,582,946, or $0.25 loss per share, up from $906,326, or $0.09 loss per share in 2021.

MGO launched 2023 on strong financial footing after raising gross proceeds of $8,625,000 from its successful Initial Public Offering completed on January 18, 2023. In connection with the IPO, the Company's common stock commenced trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market under symbol "MGOL" on January 13, 2023.
Commenting on the results and subsequent events, Maximiliano Ojeda, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of MGO, stated, "Ginny Hilfiger and I founded MGO on the belief that we could build a next-generation lifestyle brand portfolio company capable of bringing to life digitally native brands with unique DNA and identities that speak to and align with consumers and the values they hold true. Our first brand development initiative, The Messi Store, has proven to be a labor of love, blood, sweat and tears, bootstrapped over three years, but now gaining momentum as a respected, premium lifestyle brand inspired by one of the most iconic sports legends in human history - Leo Messi. Through the process of creating the collections that now define The Messi Store and development of our tech-powered DTC brand-building platform, we believe we are now poised and ready to begin accelerating growth of our business through expansion of our portfolio of brands and through expansion of the unique brands we create, license or acquire."
"With a strong balance sheet to support our defined growth objectives, matched by an amazing force of talented industry experts that now comprise the MGO team and board of directors, we have reason to believe that 2023 will prove to be a watershed year for our Company and we couldn't be more excited about proving through our actions and ongoing financial performance just how serious we are about winning," concluded Ojeda.
