On August 27th 2018, the Company entered into an agreement with long time advisor Daniel Hernandez Rodriguez for the complete turn-key delivery of a functioning system for RevoluCHARGE by 1st November 2018. Mr Hernandez and Mr. Marshall met in Europe to finalize the agreement. RevoluCHARGE is a system that will allow RevoluPAY® users to seamlessly send mobile, data and call, top-up credits to family and friends in 248 countries and territories. Mr. Hernandez began preliminary work on the project in June 2018 and, already, the two best suppliers have been signed, allowing price polling between CY Talk and Ding, both global leaders in the sector. Mobile top-ups are a multi-billion dollar industry in developing nations and, specifically, in those nations whose annual cash remittances are high. As such, RevoluCHARGE is a complimentary add-on business to RevoluPAY®, making it more convenient for RevoluPAY® users to both send money and, additionally, send mobile top-ups to their family and friends back home.
CEO message to shareholders
As should now be apparent, the Company, its management and advisors have worked tirelessly throughout the summer. Many important milestones have been achieved and, I hope, after reading this news release, shareholders are able to fully appreciate the length and breadth of our achievements over the past two months. The coming months will see the gradual introduction of many of the Company's new revenue generating divisions, all of which required, as a central prerequisite, the RevoluPAY® app. The Company has strategically utilized separate teams to autonomously bring each division forward, thus, corporate bottlenecks, often common in the asynchronous nature of major rollouts, have been largely mitigated. Due to this strategy, these new divisions should come on stream collectively or, with little to no downtime.
