Also, we have delivered a very solid EBITDA ratio despite increased expenses in growth. Given the growth in our active user base, we managed also to improve our platform experience and internal processes significantly to ensure further scalability. Looking at all our metrics it's clear by now that NAGA can grow even without the "COVID-effect", states Benjamin Bilski, CEO of NAGA.
The company also reports the launch of first-of-its-kind digital multi-webinars via the Streaming provider "Zoom".

"Personally I am extremely proud of our new fully-digital educational concept. Given the times we are in, it is truly amazing to see over 1,000 people being all connected in real-time, interacting and learning about the financial markets together. These digital trainings are especially appreciated by our clients from South-East Asia and Africa. In fact, people all around the globe seek high-quality educational content which can be consumed from home and is presented in an interactive format.
