Key Private Placement Allocations
Notable future revenue development goals requiring investment via the cited proceeds include, but are not limited to, strategic sectors for Q1 and Q2 of 2022 and beyond.
Primary Card Issuer Status – As per news dated 22 November 2021, RevoluPAY EP S.L. is in final stage discussions with one of the top 4 worldwide card issuers boasting nearly 50% of all credit cards in circulation in the U.S. and over 50% in Europe. The Company has submitted a preliminary petition for Associate Membership status to begin issuing and acquiring operations. To comply with the recommended paid-up share capital criteria, management unanimously voted on the 28th of December 2021 to increase wholly-owned subsidiary RevoluPAY EP S.L. share capital by 880,000 euros (approx. 1.26 million $CA) to a total of 1,615,000 Euros (approx. 2,312,355 $CA). Card Issuer status should provide the Company with a key competitive advantage engendering the rapid conclusion of numerous pending topics related to revenue generation.
North American Market – The Company intends to allocate approximately 125,000 $CA from the proceeds to advanced technology integration specifically associated with the continued deployment of the United States MSB II license and the analogous Canadian FINTRAC license to expand 2022 market penetration into North America via its locally domiciled subsidiaries in Vancouver, BC and Miami, FL.
RevoluTRANSFER - The Company intends to allocate approximately 100,000 $CA from the proceeds to conclude the development of RevoluTRANSFER, a key white-label catalyst, and ultimately launch key FOREX activities related to RevoluREALTY and worldwide foreign buyer property acquisitions.
The Company intends to utilize the remaining net proceeds from the private placement to accelerate the launch of RevoluBET, RevoluMED, and RevoluESPORTS, increasing white-label exposure of its current and upcoming revenue verticals in 2022 and for general operating expenses.
RevoluPAY Unique PSD2 License Categories
The Company notified shareholders of granting the PSD2 license on May 21st, 2020. While the Company immediately introduced the utilization of the primary license, specific extended categories of the Central Bank approval have remained unexploited. More recently, the Company’s ability to handle worldwide remittances was initiated. Initially through the self-launched RevoluSEND platform, Million Bridges, and later under white-label branded Sendity, with other white-labels forthcoming. One additional aspect of the specific license classifications granted to RevoluPAY was the “Issuer of Payment instruments“. This feature of the PSD2 license permits RevoluPAY to ultimately develop into a Credit/Debit Card issuing entity. As cited previously, 1.26 million $CA from the present private placement will ensure RevoluPAY EP S.L. paid-up share capital surpasses the minimum threshold recommended by the top 4 worldwide card issuer.
