Footies Update and New Funding Agreement

TechFinancials (AIM: TECH), a fintech software provider of financial solutions including blockchain-based digital assets and traditional financial trading solutions for retail clients, is pleased to provide an update on progress in the Company’s 75% owned subsidiary, Footies Ltd (‘Footies’), a company that has been established to develop a blockchain ticketing venture for sports venues and teams. 

Footies’ vision is to fully digitise the ‘sport match-day experience’ in a way that is mutually beneficial for both fans and clubs alike. Based on the positive progress on the product side and indications of interest from potential customers and partners, TechFinancials has signed a new funding agreement with Footies under which it will provide a minimum of US$225,000 and up to US$300,000 by way of a convertible loan (“Loan”). The Loan will be converted into Footies shares based on certain business conditions that will determine the valuation of Footies, which can potentially increase the Company’s equity intrest in Footies. The Loan amount is in addition to the commitment to provide up to US$500,000 to Footies, announced on 6 December 2018. 

Asaf Lahav, CEO of TechFinancials and a director of Footies, commented: “TechFinancials’ board is pleased with the progress in Footies and has therefore decided to continue to support the Footies venture. We believe that the Footies product, once fully commercialised, will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the sports ticketing market, making it fully transparent and ensuring a fairer deal is delivered for both the venues and the supporters. We look forward to continuing to update the market through 2019 as we work towards helping to bring Footies’ product to market.”
