Cessation of e-wallet business

 

MoneySwap announces that it is to cease operating its e-wallet facility for individual clients. The e-wallet facility enables its users to trade currencies and make peer-to-peer and third-party transfers. For some time, this business has been a very minor part of the Company's overall operations and is not considered by the Directors to be of strategic importance to the business going forward. The Company will continue to focus on its core business operations as a provider of; i) real time remittance solutions from overseas to China; and ii) gateway solutions to merchants in the UK.

The closure of the Company's e-wallet operations has been agreed with Hunan Commodities Trading Centre Company Limited ("HNCX"), the proposed new investor in MoneySwap.  All monies held in e-wallet accounts are to be returned to the account holders.

MoneySwap intends shortly to post a circular to shareholders setting out details of the proposed investment by HNCX and convening a General Meeting to consider and, if thought fit, pass various enabling resolutions to allow the investment to proceed.

The Company's shares were suspended from trading on AIM on 21 September 2016 and will remain suspended until the Company's audited report and accounts for the year ended 31 March 2016 have been published and posted to shareholders.
