TORONTO, May 30, 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 months ended March 31, 2023.
Through March, Clip has experienced continued momentum in bringing retailers a modern and efficient solution for cash-based business deposits. After a record setting December, Clip has welcomed 135 additional retailer stores in Q1 ’23 (+83% vs Q4 ’22), to the platform who are now active users of the system. The majority of Clip users are enterprise businesses who have in excess of 50 store locations, creating immediate scale opportunity for Clip.
Clip 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.
First Quarter 2023 Highlights
In addition to the new users above, Clip has on boarded users within a variety of retail segments, including Quick Service Restaurant (QSR), Specialty Retail, Convenience Stores, Fashion/Apparel, and Jewelry, who are all finding value through the transformative Clip platform. Retailers of various sizes and segments are all finding operational and economic value in the Clip deposit platform. Lids, an enterprise retailer with over 1100 stores, commenced a rollout of Clip to over 300 serviceable stores within our current footprint that will grow as our network grows. Another large North American apparel retailer with over 350 stores in North America has also started rolling out stores across the U.S. This retailer has received welcomed feedback from its employees who are no longer burdened with the daily visit to the bank branch. In the quarter, Clip users accounted for over 4800 deposit transactions totaling over $3.58M USD in Gross Deposit Value (“GDV”). GDV grew by 11% in the quarter and transactions declined by 7% due to a large seasonal holiday user in Q4. Excluding this large seasonal holiday user in Q4, Clip deposit transactions increased by 138% and GDV by 74% in Q1.Clip has also secured additional strategic locations to fuel its growth of network locations. Clip has reached agreements with an additional 67 shopping malls for installation by late Q3 and expects to add a further 125 mall locations by the end of 2023, creating additional deposit options for retailers already using the platform.On February 10, 2023, Clip Money closed the second tranche of a non-brokered private placement of 3,883,760 units of the Company (each a “Unit”) at a price of CAD$0.45 per Unit for gross proceeds of US$1,307,956.89 (the U.S. dollar equivalent of CAD$1,747,692). Together with the closing of the first tranche of the private placement announced on December 23, 2022, the private placement resulted in a total issuance of 8,408,397 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of US$2,831,745.73 (the U.S. dollar equivalent of CAD$3,783,778.65). Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Company and one common share purchase warrant.
“Q1 of 2023 marked a pivotal turning point for our company as we transitioned our promising strategy to execution, through solid commitments and successful onboarding of initial stores. These commitments, from large multi-store retailers, will translate into the scale and network growth to drive our business plan in 2023 and beyond. Our value proposition has been validated by premier retailers like Lids, Pepper Palace and Cherry Hill Production across a range of retailer segments. As we look ahead, our robust and growing Q1 pipeline of significant opportunities and user backlog will propel us in rapidly scaling deposit growth and customer value through the remainder of 2023. The future holds immense promise, and we are thrilled to be at the forefront of this transformative journey.”
