VMob delays planned ASX listing despite reported sales momentum

04 Aug 2015

VMob, the NZAX-listed mobile technology company, says it has delayed a planned listing on the ASX because of on-going commercial negotiations and so management can focus on current sales momentum.

The company, whose mobile marketing platform delivers personalised, location-based promotional offers to mobile phone users on behalf of major brands, will update the market when the board has confirmed the timing of the ASX listing, it said in a statement. It had previously said it hoped to have a dual-listing in place by the end of last year.

VMob said annualised committed monthly revenue (ACMR) rose to $4.5 million as at July 31, a 41 percent increase on the $3.2 million it reported for the March period. ACMR is a common measure of business growth in the software-as-a-service industry and represents contracted monthly recurring revenue recognised in the month of July and multiplied by 12.

The company said growth in ACMR continues what has already been a strong year including a number of key customer wins such as the addition of 7-Eleven in Australia, IKEA in Sweden, McDonald’s Korea, McDonald’s USA and a global agreement with McDonald’s Corporation.

VMob reported a 474 percent increase in annual revenue to $2.94 million for the year ended March 31, while its net loss widened to $4.39 million.

The NZAX-listed shares rose 2.9 percent to 36 cents. Snakk Trustee, owned by Michael John Sorenson, reduced its shareholding in the company last month, dropping from 12.34 percent to 4.81 percent.
