28. Going concern considerations
Because of investments made in expansion and growth and due to the impacts of the pandemic-caused downturn of 2020, Group has been working with losses for the last three years. The loss might occur in the upcoming period too, as the Group continues to work on its growth-focused goals that will need considerable investments in people and technologies.
In November 2020, the Group led a successful crowdfunding campaign to attract additional capital. As a result, the equity increased from €1.18 million at the end of 2020 to €7.44 million in January 2021. After repaying deferred tax liabilities in full at the beginning of 2021, the Group has no external debt and it is not exposed to the risk of breaching its financial agreements. Once the process of obtaining the Investment Firm and Electronic Money Institution license is completed, the Group will look forward to the additional venture capital equity raise.
