NEW YORK, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The CEO of Weyland Tech, Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL), a leading global Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider of m-Commerce and fintech solutions, will be featured in a live interview by The Wall Street Resource at 4:30 p.m. EST (1:30 p.m. PST) today.
Suen is expected to discuss Weyland Tech’s accelerating growth in CreateApp™ PaaS subscription fees from SMBs in Southeast Asia, its planned entry into the North American market via a strategic acquisition that is expected to double revenues in 2020, as well as the rapid expansion of its AtozGo™ food delivery service.
The company recently announced record results for the third quarter of 2019, with revenue up 26% sequentially to $9.0 million and trailing 12-months revenue at more than $30 million. It also turned adjusted EBITDA positive.
Last week, Weyland Tech announced plans to acquire Minneapolis-based Push Holdings. The Push Interactive eCommerce platform is highly synergistic and complementary to Weyland’s mobile technology, and provides Weyland a well-established U.S. operational platform to introduce its products and service to North America with a lower cost of customer acquisition and at higher subscription price points.
Also last week the company reported that its AtozGo™ food delivery service in Jakarta, Indonesia, has reached a registered customer base of 49,500 mobile users and 14,500 deliveries per day after only four months since launching in July.
According to Suen, AtozGo’s unique approach and phenomenal growth is generating a tremendous amount of value for Weyland. Looking at global competitors like Uber Eats or DoorDash, and even down to local competitors in Southeast Asia, such as GrabFood or Go-Foods, their average value per user is around $330. This implies a stand-alone valuation for AtozGo of more than $16 million.
Given the large market opportunity for food delivery services in Southeast Asia that is valued at around $13 billion, AtozGo is on track to reach more than 250,000 food deliveries per day, with a customer base topping 1 million by the end of next year.
In October, Suen purchased from the open market 99,000 shares of the company’s common stock, and then two weeks ago purchased another 900,000 in a private transaction. In the press release announcing the purchases, Suen noted that publicly-traded SaaS/PaaS companies typically trade on average at around 10x revenue according to Crunchbase, with other microcap comparables trading around 4x revenue on average. Companies with cloud-based or platform-as-a-service models attract higher multiples due to ‘stickier,’ higher-margin customer engagements that provide greater transparency into revenue and profitability.
Given the increasing number of businesses coming onto the CreateApp platform, Suen believes the market price of Weyland’s stock does not reflect its financial performance, the quality of its recurring revenue, and the strong prospects for growth to accelerate over the coming quarters. As a result, he has continued to invest personally in WEYL.
The company is also preparing for an uplist to the Nasdaq Stock Market, where it expects to attract the attention of a broader base of investors, particularly institutional and family offices.
