About その結果

その結果(けっか) is a conjunction in Japanese that is used to highlight the result of something that has been previously said. The noun 結果(けっか) itself means 'result'. This expression translates as 'as a result of (A)', or 'resulting from (A)'.
その結果(けっか) will be used at the beginning of a new sentence, before a (B) phrase will highlight the result of (A).
