TORONTO, May 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Banxa Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BNXA) (OTCQX: BNXAF) (FSE: AC00) ("Banxa'' or the "Company"), the leading on-and-off ramp solution for Web3, announces today its lodging of Australian fiscal year 2023 Q3 (January-March 2023) unaudited results. The full results including Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A) are available on Sedar.
Holger Arians, Banxa CEO, said: “I am thrilled to be able to share these latest quarterly results, which demonstrate how far we have come as a business over the last year. Banxa has emerged as the premier on/off ramp solution globally. The company’s fundamentals are as strong as ever, with a far more diversified revenue base that continues to grow. Our operating profit has also grown thanks to new products and aggressive cost-cutting. Impressively, we have achieved all of this even as the crypto industry remains challenging. I am excited for Banxa’s bright future and the entire team is eager to share these successes with our shareholders.”
Domenic Carosa, Banxa Chairman, said: “The imminent relisting of the BNXA stock on the TSX Ventures Exchange (TSXv) marks a significant milestone for Banxa and its shareholders. The CTO has been painful for shareholders and I recognize the situation has damaged shareholder trust in the company. We have been working non-stop to re-list and resume trading as soon as possible. We also made much-needed improvements to Banxa’s financial reporting and controls so we can emerge as a more mature company. I hope that shareholders will take notice of Banxa’s strong results thanks to Holger and his team’s hard work. We hope to have the opportunity to restore shareholder trust as Banxa advances to its next stage of growth.”
