Toronto, Ontario – March 6, 2020 – XTM, Inc. (“XTM” or the “Company”), a global fintech company providing mobile banking and payment solutions is pleased to announce that it has obtained conditional approval from the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) for the listing (the “Listing”) of its common shares under the ticker symbol “PAID”. The common shares of XTM will commence trading on March 10, 2020, assuming all conditions of the Listing are satisfied by that date. XTM has also filed its long form non-offering final prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities on www.sedar.com in each of Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta to become a reporting issuer in those jurisdictions.
XTM has been making great progress with its instant gratuity and earnings disbursement platform coupled with the Today Mastercard. The full featured mobile wallet and card solution is gaining significant market attention and the Company has already rolled out the solution in many high-volume restaurants, hospitality service providers and thousands of users. XTM is currently working on several integrations with large organizations point of sale (POS) systems to fully automate the instant disbursement of tips and wages to their employees.
Another new feature soon to be added with the latest update will allow all Today Mastercard holders the ability to have any direct deposits sent to their Today wallet. Through new XTM banking agreements, any Today wallet holder will have the ability to print in app a direct deposit form or void cheque allowing users to have their payroll or other direct deposits sent to their Today wallet in real time.
The Company recently signed a deal with one of the largest ATM providers allowing all Today card holders access to a surcharge free ATM network with thousands of convenient locations. The mobile application is currently being updated with an ATM locator function that will use GPS location data to map the closest free ATM locations.
XTM is working to finalize an integration with one of the largest banks in North America which is expected to enable XTM to deliver free bank to bank transfers for any business wishing to move money to consumers in real time. The solution will allow the recipient to choose any bank account to deliver the funds next day for free or instantly for a small fee.
In the coming weeks XTM expects to announce details of its new micro-credit product which uses artificial intelligence-based computer programming to adjudicate credit enabling millions of consumers the ability to obtain a credit card without the need for a security deposit. This game changing technology coupled with the Today mobile wallet solution will revolutionize the way credit is granted and delivered to the underbanked. The Company is in discussions with multiple parties to license and private label the technology allowing XTM to focus on its core in market offerings including the Today Mastercard instant pay solution.
XTM is in final discussions with an issuing partner bank in the United States allowing the Company to expand its Today Mastercard program. The Company already has existing Canadian customers seeking to deploy the solution throughout their US locations. As a result of XTM’s presence at the Luxury Hotel Association Conference at the end of 2019 in Miami, Florida, USA, XTM has gained significant interest, including numerous potential strategic partners, seeking to deploy XTM and its product as an instant wage and gratuity financial provider throughout the US and the Caribbean.
On March 3rd the Company finished exhibiting at the Restaurant Canada 2020 show in Toronto, ON showcasing the Today Mastercard and instant gratuity and wage disbursement solution. In excess of twenty thousand industry professionals in foodservice and hospitality attended the event and XTM’s CEO and Vice President of Hospitality were key note speakers at the conference. The Today Mastercard product garnered a tremendous amount of interest and the Company has already started executing contracts from new restaurant groups met at the show.
The Company is seeking approval of regulators to dual list or cross list XTM shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and in the United States on the OTC Markets exchange. We believe this will provide XTM access to a larger investor base, as well as providing greater liquidity and longer trading hours for our shareholders.
“We are excited with what we have built to date and we look forward to monetizing our solutions in the real-time payment space” commented Marilyn Schaffer, CEO, “XTM is well positioned for a rapid expansion creating shareholder value through reoccurring revenue offerings”
