Weyland Tech Inc. Provides a Shareholder Update on the Company's Recently Announced Spin-Off of the eWallet Business and Discussion About the Company's Core Business
New York, Nov. 08, 2018 (NewMediaWire) -- Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) (“Weyland” or the “Company”) announced today that the distribution of its direct holdings in Weyland AtoZPay Indonesia (“WAI”) will be completed with a distribution of WAI shares on November 30, 2018 as previously announced.
AtoZPay was at no time consolidated into Company financial statements, and hence the distribution will have no effect on the Company's core business.
Post distribution the company retains an option for 31% of AtoZPay which can be acquired by the Company at its discretion for nominal exercise price.
CEO Brent Suen explained, "We believe the spin-off best served existing and future shareholders. As an independent company, AtoZPay will be free to enter the capital markets to unlock value for its shareholders. At the same time we continue to be supportive of AtoZPay as Weyland's option can generate tremendous value for our shareholders.
With the successful spin out of AtoZPay we are continuing to develop similar opportunities in other markets such as Myanmar, with a population of 53 million people and a median age of 28 years old. Additionally, the smartphone penetration rate is estimated at 70% while the ‘unbanked’ (people without bank accounts) population stands at around 70% as well – we firmly believe that an opportunity exists for a similar market entry of an eWallet like AtoZPay to become a viable product. We expect to follow a similar path of sponsoring local partners, funding initial traction and potentially spinning out independent entities while retaining ownership stakes for Weyland shareholders to take advantage of future growth.
Along with this strategy, with the conclusion of the AtoZPay spinoff we will focus on our rapidly expanding core business."
The Company also intends to provide an update showing improved guidance on its core business following the release of its September 30, 2018 10Q in the coming days.
