Mexico City, Aug. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — QPAGOS (QPAG: OTCQB) announced that 2nd quarter 2018 results continue the strong revenue growth trend shown in the first quarter, as reported yesterday in the company’s filed 10Q.
Revenues for the three months ending June 30, 2018 were $1,701,763, a 67.3% increase over the same quarter in 2017, and a 62.8% increase over the same January to June period of 2017.
