They compete most directly with other indoor and sports-related entertainment options such as sporting events, golf clubs, sports bars, and similar businesses. X-Golf’s main competitor in the golf-related entertainment space is Top Golf, which is set up as a driving range with outfield targets and serves food and beverages.

The X-Golf Franchise Corporation was profitable in 2020 with a net income of $156,059. This is up from $79,662 and $39,315 in 2019 and 2018, respectively. Net income has also increased as a percentage of total revenues in each of those years, reaching 27% of total revenue by 2020. The X-Golf Franchise Corporation has also seen a relative decrease in costs across this time period, getting down to 62% of total revenue.

In 2020, the X-Golf Franchise Corporation had a net income of $156,059, but their cash totaled $226,254, which is a 10% increase from the amount of cash they started the year with. However, net cash provided by operating activities decreased in 2020 to $22,401 from $190,829 in 2019.

X-Golf has seen franchise unit increases in each of the last three years, and the franchises on average have been profitable in recent years. However, the growth in new franchises has slowed and franchise profits decreased significantly in the most recent period. So while X-Golf franchises have been profitable in the past, the potential for the negative impacts of the pandemic on the arcade, food, and entertainment complexes industry to continue makes the outlook for the future for X-Golf franchises uncertain.
