#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Releases 2017 Financials


#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Releases 2017 Financials

Announces Addition of New CFO



SANTA MONICA, CA - April 19, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher"), a technology company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled mobile technologies, released the results of its 10K filing for the year ended December 31, 2017.


Management of Gopher is excited to use this milestone to highlight what has been achieved in the past year. Revenue grew over 5,000% year over year when compared to year ended 2017 and Gopher has further developed its asset base, which is expected to support future operations and growth. https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1471781/000161577418002560/0001615774-18-002560-index.htm

In response to this increase in the size of Gopher's operations, the Board has determined that additional resources in control and management of finances is prudent beginning with an initial step of engaging a Chief Financial Officer.

The Company appointed Mr. Kevin Pickard as its Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Pickard brings almost 30 years of accounting experience to Gopher. He is a licensed CPA with extensive experience in working with public companies.

Gopher's board was specifically interested in Mr. Pickard's experience in performing due diligence on potential acquisition candidates, preparing projections and business plans and assisting with corporate restructurings.
Prior to opening his own CPA firm in 1998, he was a partner with Singer Lewak LLP, where he is co-managed the firm's securities practice group.

Mr. Pickard also spent over nine years with Coopers & Lybrand, L.L.P., (currently PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP) where he focused on auditing companies in the insurance, high-tech and manufacturing industries. Mr. Pickard earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accountancy from Brigham Young University.

"Having worked with Gopher during 2017 and seeing the transformation first hand, I am excited to have the opportunity to become part of the team," stated Kevin Pickard.

SoundView Technology Group Update on NXT-ID, Inc. (Nasdaq: $NXTD); EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK


SoundView Technology Group Update on NXT-ID, Inc. (Nasdaq: $NXTD); EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK



SoundView Technology Group (Boston) – April 18, 2018:  SoundView Technology Group (http://soundview.co) releases the following company update for NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTD).

NXT-ID (NXTD $1.97)

EARLY 2018 OUTLOOK

APRIL 18, 2018

KRIS TUTTLE, KRIS@SOUNDVIEW.CO


Excerpt:
April 2018 Update
2017 was a busy year for Nxt-ID. Revenues tripled to $23.3M from $7.3M in 2016. It took some expensive financing to get it all done but now the company is in a much better position and has cleaned up the balance sheet considerably. The last component is a refinancing of their revolving debt which we believe will come soon (as per recent management guidance.) This final step will dramatically reduce their interest payments.

(For investors new to the NXTD story we recommend you read the recent SEC 10K form - the first sections are well-written and the most current detailed overview of the business. Here’s a link to the PDF of the NXTD 10K. )

We expect they will build on their success in 2018 - primarily in expanding the FitPay business and extending their LogicMark franchise more deeply into the healthcare industry.

But investors should be reminded that the company is rooted in authentication and payments technology which allows them to continue to innovate around new devices and payment devices. The advent of blockchain technologies and crypto currencies has opened up an even broader range of business development opportunities. In 2018 we expect Nxt-ID to debut a new next-generation general purpose payment device.

LogicMark
LogicMark has been a steady growing business, making consistent quarterly revenue progress. In 2018 we expect more of the same backed by a broad range of updated products and expanded distribution and more direct-to-consumer offerings that don’t require monthly service fees.

LogicMark is also working on expanding their role in the healthcare industry from personal emergency response (PERS) units into solutions for patient monitoring and chronic care.
For example, hospitals want to discharge patients as soon as possible (often too soon) but face penalties and unreimbursed expenses if that patient has to return to the hospital with a relapse. By discharging patients with improved monitoring technology, the hospital can reduce the frequency and severity of relapses and in many cases avoid re-admission.

At this point we are only modeling continued expansion of the PERS business so we’ll be watching how the company develops their healthcare market opportunity. The area is ripe, but we know that hospitals and care-providers can be very deliberate in their adoption of new technologies and are often hampered by regulations and prior investments in large legacy systems.

There are some positive trends in healthcare that make us cautiously optimistic. First of all, the pressure on the already-creaking system is unrelenting. An aging population is only making current inefficiencies harder to endure. On the technology side we have seen real growth in modern methods like Telehealth. One example is the success of Teledoc (NYSE: TDOC) which now has 23 million paying members and grew revenue last year 89% to $233M. The company expects to do $355M in revenue in 2018.

Fit Pay
More Fit Pay enabled devices will be rolling out in 2018. Existing customer Garmin is adding “Garmin Pay” deeper into their product portfolio and it should be available across more of their lineup by the end of the year.

We also expect to see shipments of more innovative wearable devices like the Token Ring LINK. We believe there is significant consumer demand for some kind of “digital cash” option outside of the smartphone. So far nothing has fit the bill and seen significant adoption but a raft of new devices may change this.

Fit Pay has their own offering, the Flip, which is scheduled to begin shipping towards the end of Q2. We think about Flip as kind of an “EZPass” for your daily life. Small purchases should be easy and anonymous.

The Flip offering is about recurring account fees but they will be small in magnitude. In 2018 this is still more about “design wins” which translate into long-term recurring revenue streams in the form of small activation and account fees.

We expect some significant new customers for Fit Pay in 2018, possibly as early as Q2. These will also reinforce the positioning Fit Pay as a platform and a strategic asset. Any device-maker outside of Apple and Google that wants to do payments would consider Fit Pay to be a key piece of proven infrastructure.

Tech News: Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Announces Follow-On Financing with Existing Investor


Tech News: Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: $GOPH) Announces Follow-On Financing with Existing Investor



ATLANTA, GA - April 16, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher" and the "Company"), a company specializing in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence enabled mobile technologies, announced a closing of the sale of a convertible debenture containing a fixed conversion price, which generated $750,000 in net proceeds. The details on the funding can be found in the Company's Form 8-K – https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1471781/000161577418002602/0001615774-18-002602-index.htm

As previously disclosed, under the terms of the prior financing, Bellridge Capital. LP ("Bellridge") was entitled to invest an additional $750,000 in consideration of a debenture and common stock purchase warrant. On April 9, 2018, Bellridge exercised this right to invest additional capital into the Company.


Since the beginning of 2018, Bellridge has invested $1,500,000 into the Company in consideration of a fixed price convertible debenture and related common stock purchase warrants. Separately, during 2018, an additional $500,000 equity investment was funded by a previous investor. As of today, other than the convertible debentures held by Bellridge, the Company does not have other convertible debt outstanding.

The financing is part of the Company's decision not to take convertible financing without a fixed conversion price and create a balance sheet that gives investors clarity regarding the number of shares outstanding and potential dilution caused by convertible debenture financing.

"This financing fits into our strategy of moving away from variable priced convertible securities with the goal of providing our investors clarity regarding our capital structure. Our management team believes this financing is a very positive signal; two existing investors have chosen to re-invest. One transitioned from being a lender to an equity investor and the other acquired a fixed conversion debenture," stated Greg Bauer, CEO.

#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Acquires #Fintech Assets


#Tech News: Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: $GOPH) Acquires #Fintech Assets

Enhancing Financial Services Portfolio



ATLANTA, GA - April 9, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Gopher Protocol Inc. (OTCQB: GOPH) ("Gopher"), a technology company which specializes in the creation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled mobile technologies, effective April 2, 2018 acquired certain assets from Electronic Check Services Inc. ("ECS") and from Central State Legal Inc. ("CSL").


The acquisition centers around a proprietary software that:
·        Validates written check authenticity in real-time;
·        Scores risk associated with the acceptance of a check; and
·        Generates automated response and follow up when a check is returned unpaid.

By using this system, less than 2% of 50,000+/- checks processed monthly have been returned unpaid. Utilizing the automated follow up, 70% of that 2% fraction of checks were collected within the first 90 days.

CSL was developed to work with merchants and ECS to recover funds from returned checks. CSL also acts as a second layer in the "bad check" recovery process. ECS attempts recovery during the first 90 days following the return. After 90 days, CSL takes over the recovery process. CSL has been able to recover funds on approximately 55% of all returned checks within 90 days of taking over the delinquent account.

These assets acquisition is a complementary assets acquired from ECS Prepaid LLC - https://backend.otcmarkets.com/otcapi/company/sec-filings/12638360/content/html The core asset of ECS is its processing software program, which Gopher intends to combine into the prior acquisition of the UGO HUB and the UGO brand of products.

ECS PrePaid’s core operating system currently operates over 9,000 terminals in retail locations throughout the United States. These terminals process over 14,000 transactions a day and have capacity to manage at least three times its current volume, without further software expense. This platform generated approximately $32 million in revenue for the year ended December 31, 2017 (unaudited), approximately $4.2 million for the month of January 2018 (unaudited) and approximately $4.3 for the month of February 2018 (unaudited).

"We believe these acquisitions will uniquely position Gopher to establish our mesh network and connect with consumers. This integration of technologies, may establish a platform that can provide solutions that aren’t currently available from a single provider. I still need some additional tools under my belt to present a comprehensive proprietary product, but we continue to strive toward this goal" stated Gopher CEO Greg Bauer.

About ECS Prepaid LLC.
Formed in 2008, ECS Prepaid LLC. (www.ecsprepaid.com) was started and fueled by the desire to create a Prepaid Wireless distribution model built to cater to Independent Sales Organizations servicing the gas station, convenience store market. ECS Prepaid is a two time "INC 500 Fastest Growing Companies" in the US, with a high ranking of 64th.
Starting with just a few hundred direct retail locations, ECS Prepaid quickly grew its customer base by providing one of the most comprehensive terminal solution available. Today ECS Prepaid supports over 100 independent agents while powering roughly 9,000 retail locations across the United States.

The ECS Prepaid software platform provides the ability to bring a variety of services to even the smallest retailer. Products currently available include: Prepaid Wireless, SIM Activations, International Top Up, Private Label Gift Cards, Electronic Check Processing, Customer Loyalty and Rewards programs.
