Tingo (OTC: TMNA) and MICT (NASDAQ: MICT) today announced that they have filed a registration and joint proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with their anticipated merger. According to the update, the merger is expected to create a >$1.0 billion annualized revenue and highly profitable fintech and agri-fintech company serving the African and Asian markets with a global expansion strategy. The SEC will now review the submission and, following its review and the registration statement being declared effective, shareholders of each company will have the ability to approve the merger. Upon approval of stockholders and the satisfaction of other certain conditions, the merger will close, which is expected to occur between end of the third quarter and the early part of the fourth quarter of 2022.
“We are excited to combine Tingo’s operations with MICT to create a world class global fintech and agri-fintech firm,” said Tingo’s CEO Dozy Mmobuosi, who will become the group CEO following the merger. “The merger represents an incredible opportunity for both Tingo and MICT to expand our businesses and service offerings in new markets while also benefiting from being a Nasdaq-traded company, which in turn is expected to generate increased visibility and growth opportunities for us and our investors. Tingo has achieved substantial growth in revenue and profitability in recent years, which is now driven by our Nwassa agri-fintech platform, and such growth is expected to continue, including through the launch of our TingoPay super app, in partnership with VISA.”
