NORTHRIDGE, Calif., Feb. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Innovative Payment Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: IPSI) (“Innovative” or the “Company”), a Southern California based fintech company focused on building a 21st century digital payment solution, IPSIPay™, today announced it has raised over $600k of new capital in a fixed price financing with several of our largest shareholders at a 30% premium to the round of funding previously completed in the 4th quarter of 2020. This funding provides the Company with greater ability to execute on its declared plans and goals.
William Corbett, the CEO of Innovative Payment Solutions, Inc., commented: “This new capital from our loyal institutional investors helps validate to our management team that we are moving forward in a positive meaningful way with the Company’s proprietary technology development as well as its unique business model.”
This new infusion of money is aimed at anticipated capacity needs through 2021 and should allow Innovative to expedite the integration of its money remittance platform announced with its new partner Golden Money Transfer (www.gmtnorthamerica.com) on Monday, February 1st. The timing is great too, as Mexican Central Bank has confirmed record growth for the fifth consecutive year in money transferred to Mexico, including approximately an 11% growth to $40B in 2020 to a new high despite the coronavirus pandemic. Considering the big drop in the value of the peso this year, family remittances sent in dollars should significantly increase. With such support from our loyal shareholders, we believe that we are well positioned to continue building on the development of our digital payment solution IPSIPay and we are looking forward to serving underserved communities very soon.”
