TORONTO, April 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clip Money Inc. (TSX-V: CLIP) (“Clip Money” or the “Company”), a company that operates a multi-bank self-service deposit system for businesses, is pleased to announce its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022, and the full year 2022.
2022 was a critical year to further advance Clip Money’s mission of delivering convenient cash management solutions for businesses. Clip Money achieved significant milestones throughout the year, including the successful launch of its first-to-market, multibank deposit platform. The Company platform is now operational and processing daily deposits for retailers across North America.
Clip Money’s platform enables the ClipDrop network, which has now been deployed across the U.S. and Canadian markets in leading retail locations such as Simon, Brookfield Properties, Bentall Green Oak, and select Staples locations. This network creates unmatched locational convenience, making it easier and more cost effective for businesses to deposit into any bank account. Since the ClipDrop network launch in the U.S. in late 2022, Clip Money has garnered strong customer interest and demand from some of the leading retailers in North America, particularly large enterprise retailers.
Clip Money has experienced significant growth in our pipeline and registration of new retail users to our platform. An additional six enterprise retailers have joined the platform in Q1 ‘23, with nearly 1800 total stores. Clip Money’s current network can service up to 600 of these retailer stores, and as more locations are added in 2023, Clip can grow with these retailers and serve more of their locations.
Fiscal Year 2022 Highlights
- At the end of 2022, the ClipDrop network in North America ended with 339 locations installed. In the U.S., Clip Money has installed over 300 units across the country's premier mall operators.
- Clip Money welcomed 131 new users (i.e. depositing stores) to the network throughout Q4 2022. These new users included three enterprise retailers (Pepper Palace, Invicta and Cherry Hill Productions). Clip Money was able to onboard and support these large enterprise retailers with speed and quality. These retailers, who collectively have over 990 total stores, enjoyed the speed, quality, and simplicity of joining Clip Money’s network to make deposits. The Clip Money network offers new users an alternative to cumbersome long-term contracts associated with traditional cash management suppliers and also helps users avoid frustrating visits to their local bank branch.
- Clip Money ended the year with 161 users (individual store depositors) across 37 retailers actively using the Clip Money network. These users accounted for over 5,200 deposit transactions and deposited over $3.2M USD in Gross Deposit Value (“GDV”). This represents a 146% increase in GDV from Q3 2022. In the busy retail month of December, the Company processed over $2M USD in GDV, representing our most active month in 2022.
- On May 13, 2022, Clip Money completed a subscription receipt financing for aggregate proceeds of CAD$8,090,425 (the “Subscription Receipt Financing”) and issued an aggregate of 8,174,439 subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts”), which included 84,014 subscription receipts issued to brokers for services, at a price of $1.00 per Subscription Receipt. Each Subscription Receipt was automatically exchanged for one common share of Clip Money (“Common Share”), and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant of the Company (“RTO Warrant”) upon completion of the RTO. Each RTO Warrant is exercisable for one Common Share at a price of $1.50 for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance.
- On May 20, 2022, the Company completed a “reverse takeover” (the “RTO”) of 13842053 Canada Corp. Following completion of the RTO, the Company’s common shares began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on May 26, 2022.
- On December 23, 2022, the Company closed the first tranche of a private placement of 4,524,637 units of the Company (“Units”) for total gross proceeds of CAD$2,034,631. Each Unit consisted of one Common Share and one Common Share purchase warrant (each a “Unit Warrant”). Each Unit Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at an exercise price of CAD$0.65 for a period of 36 months following the issuance of the Units.
“We’re thrilled to see the overwhelming response for our transformative, first-to-market cash deposit solution across the retail industry, particularly in the enterprise segment, where legacy cash management processes are inefficient and unreliable. Our exceptional product-market fit, enabled by our digital platform, has exceeded expectations in the U.S. Market since our launch in September. Throughout the Company’s network of conveniently located deposit endpoints and digital platform investments, we have set ourselves up for profitable growth. . With a robust pipeline and user backlog, we look forward to helping retailers thrive in today’s challenging operating environment and driving significant growth for the Clip Money in 2023 and beyond.”
- Joe Arrage (CEO & Co-founder)
