Roadmap Announcement – 2015 A Landmark Year
Positioning VMob to Accelerate Global Expansion and Commercialisation
The Directors of VMob are pleased to announce a roadmap of events for 2015, which are designed to enable the company to accelerate global expansion and the successful commercialisation of its world leading, mobile marketing technology for retailers.
Scott Bradley, CEO and founder of VMob said;
“This is an extremely exciting time to be at VMob. After years of development and investment we are now ideally placed, and ready, to take the company to a new level of growth, strength and success. We expect 2015 to be a landmark year for the company.
To do this we need to position VMob in larger commercial and capital markets. We need to provide the company with the necessary tools and platforms to support and drive global growth.
Having recently relocated to the US to oversee our overseas expansion, I am tremendously encouraged by the support we enjoy from our key customers and suppliers and by the scale and timeliness of our global market opportunities.
I could not be more optimistic about our prospects. This roadmap of events for 2015 is designed to ensure we succeed in our global strategy and deliver substantial rewards for our shareholders”
To gain access to a larger pool of investment capital and with a view to realizing greater value for shareholders, VMob intends to dual list via an IPO on ASX this year. The company’s NZX listing will be retained.
Advisers have been appointed to assist to the company in the listing process including Bell Potter, Norton Rose and Pegasus Corporate Advisory.
Share consolidation to take place in Q2 2015. In preparation for the IPO on ASX and to support the further “institutionalisation” of the share register the directors will be recommending to shareholders a share consolidation. Further details will be provided shortly.
New equity capital to be raised via a pre listing placement and an offer to be made at the time of the IPO on ASX. Given the timeliness of VMob’s market opportunities and the sharp increase in customer interest since presenting at the National Retailer Federation event in New York in January the company intends to raise new equity capital. Proceeds will be used to expand the sales and marketing footprint, provide working capital and accelerate global growth.
The Directors of VMob are highly optimistic about the company’s prospects for global expansion and the successful commercialization of our proprietary, problem-solving software for retailers.
Our market opportunities are large and timely. VMob is ready for the next level of growth and success.
With a clear strategy and a disciplined focus on execution we are determined to take advantage of our competitive strengths and deliver substantial returns for shareholders.
As this Roadmap outlines 2015 should be a landmark year for VMob, a year of strong growth, investment and progress. We appreciate the loyalty and support of our customers, suppliers, staff and shareholders. We will update the market on specific events as outlined in this Roadmap in the near future.
