October 29, 2020 (Source) — Reiterates Preliminary Fiscal First Quarter 2021 Guidance Including Approximately 170% Quarter-over-Quarter Revenue Growth
Voyager Digital Ltd. (“Voyager” or the “Company”) (CSE: VYGR) (OTCQB: VYGVF) (FRA: UCD2), a publicly traded, licensed crypto-asset broker that provides investors with a turnkey solution to invest in crypto assets, today announced it has filed its full-year consolidated financial statements and Management Discussion & Analysis (“MD&A”) for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 and is pleased to provide shareholders with a business and operational update.
Following a successful fiscal 2020, with revenues up over 1,100%, customer asset growth of almost 2,000%, brokerage accounts up over 750%, and a recently completed capital raise, Voyager is well positioned to continue growing its user base, product offering and geographic reach. Voyager is creating the financial services firm of the future, as an integrated digital asset agency broker offering trading on over 50 digital assets with interest on 17 of those assets. Voyager is partnered with other leading players in the digital assets industry – Ledger, Bitgo, and Fireblocks – providing our users with the most transparent, safe and secure commission-free trading platform.
“We achieved strong revenue and account growth during fiscal 2020 and this momentum has carried over into the first quarter of fiscal 2021 as more people utilize digital assets,” said Stephen Ehrlich, Co-founder and CEO of Voyager. “We are also encouraged by the recent announcements of large corporates broadening their product offerings as well as investing capital in this space, and believe this is a strong affirmation of growing adoption in the marketplace.”
More recently, Voyager announced an advisory relationship with NBA Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady, helping to educate investors about Voyager’s industry-leading interest program, offering up to 9.5% interest on various digital assets. As crypto assets continue to receive main street adoption, Voyager is committed to enhancing its product solutions, with plans to add margin, a debit card, a desktop application, and other traditional bank offerings.
Additionally, Voyager recently merged its European operations into LGO, SAS, an AMF regulated entity in France. The merger provides Voyager with a fully licensed European entity to expedite its European strategy and for additional international expansion. Further, Lewis Bateman recently joined Voyager to build out its regulatory compliant international infrastructure in Canada, Europe and Latin America, and to develop additional strategic relationships to accelerate Voyager’s growth.
