SEBASTIAN, Florida - March 14, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Fit Pay, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nxt-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD), a provider of healthcare devices and services as well as payment credential management and authentication platform services, announces selected unaudited, preliminary results for year ended December 31, 2018.
"Our preliminary results for 2018 show continued steady growth in revenue and profitability with a reduction in operating expenses of over 10%," said Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of Nxt-ID. "We are excited about our prospects in 2019 as we build on our existing strong base with the introduction of new products and markets during this year."
Update on Proposed Spin-off
"The closing date of the refinanced debt facility is now expected to be at the end of March or early April 2019. Completion of the refinancing will enable us to take the next step in moving forward with the planned spin-off of our Payments Division, which we believe will increase overall value for our shareholders," said Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of Nxt-ID.
Subject to closing, the refinancing would remove a key covenant of the existing debt facility and enable the Company to proceed with the proposed spin-off of its Payment Division, which include its Fit Pay, Inc. subsidiary and other assets.
Immediately following the spin-off transaction, Nxt-ID shareholders, who own shares of Nxt-ID on the to-be-announced record date will own shares of both companies. Subsequent to the record date, but prior to the date of the distribution, which will be established by the Board, NXTD shares will trade ex-distribution.
The results provided in this press release are unaudited, preliminary and subject to completion of Nxt-ID's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 in conjunction with the Company's Form 10-K filing for the same period, and therefore they are subject to change. Nxt-ID intends to report final results for the year ended December 31, 2018 on or about April 1, 2019, after market close.
