Summary:

· 1Q22 results reported on May 17, 2022 with the company in the early stages of launching online services and adding new acquisitions.
· Leflair, an online seller of luxury goods, was relaunched in September 2021 in Vietnam and was the main revenue contributor. Two acquisitions in grocery and delivery were announced in February 2022 as management looks to expand organic growth with M&A.
· A loyalty rewards program will be launching this summer and has the potential to create upside with high margin business.
