"We have seen significant growth in revenue in the fiscal year ended May 31, 2018, which was largely attributed to our Company’s consumer product lines and our strategic focus on CBD hemp sales in China and within the Chinese community," says Mr. Warren Wang, CEO of ChineseInvestors.com. "At the same time, we expanded our subscription services and educational offerings to cover the cryptocurrency market and have plans to establish a cryptocurrency ATM network and a domestic online coin-to-coin exchange for Chinese cryptocurrency investors. While our subscription revenues decreased slightly in FY 2018, we have been developing opportunities around new services and educational products which we have seen gain tremendous traction."
Mr. Wang continues, "Looking forward, with our consumer products segment posting strong revenues and the regulatory climate appearing to lean in favor of legalizing hemp as an agricultural commodity, we intend to continue to expand our consumer division by dedicating more resources to marketing hemp-based CBD products both domestically and in China. At the same time, we will continue to offer our core financial subscription services with a focus on increasing subscription revenues through targeted marketing of the Company’s new cryptocurrency subscription services and educational products."
