Seychelles license granted 

NAGA is pleased to announce that it has received a financial license from the Seychelles  regulator to accelerate its global business. 

“The license from Seychelles offers a fully regulated environment for our business  outside Europe, it will enable us to strengthen banking and payment relationships and  unlock significance for our B2B segment. In addition, customers are better protected. We have been working for several months on this license and are happy to get it operational in Q4”, says Benjamin Bilski, Founder & CEO of NAGA. 

NAGAX and Guide Investimentos to launch crypto platform in Brazil 

Guide Investimentos is one of the largest digital asset management platforms in Brazil  and owned by the FOSUN group. NAGAX and Guide have signed a Letter of Intent to  launch a Joint Venture to offer a crypto trading platform in Brazil using the capabilities of  NAGAX for spot and staking of crypto assets. 

“The Brazilian market for digital products is growing rapidly. Crypto is one of the fastest  growing segments in the Brazilian online market. Guide has already established itself in  Brazil and processing already billion in trading volume from its brokerage business.  NAGAX offers a strong crypto ecosystem for Guide and will enable Guide clients to  immediately get access to crypto services. Especially in the current market conditions, we are getting ready for the next wave of crypto adoption, hence we are extremely  excited about this partnership”. 

NAGAs cost restructuring shows already promising data 

As previously reported NAGAs management has started to cut costs and drive  operational efficiency throughout its business. The monthly cost has already come down  by over 30%, whilst revenues in August and September were at HY1 2022 average  levels. In September NAGA achieved its best result on operating cash flow basis in 2022  by delivering over EUR 1 million operating cash flow. 

“We keep improving our cost. We are not where we want to be yet, however it's promising  for us to see that we can maintain a strong topline growth and operate the business from  its own cash flow. Our goal is to position ourselves to drive the business forward without  the need for additional funding, and only get additional funding to drive new business  and innovation or to accelerate when the markets come back”, commented Bilski on the  positive developments. 

He adds: "However, we must admit that this year has been very challenging for us. From  unexpected accounting changes to an unprecedented pressure on the stock market  which has affected our share price and valuations significantly, to investing and  launching products such as NAGAX in the worst possible market conditions for the  crypto market. We have learnt a lot this year and we stay committed and in full belief to  NAGA. We have truly built a strong platform; we see the growth and the potential, and  this gives us a lot of confidence for the upcoming period. We want to express our  gratitude to our investors who remain committed and supportive to the Management  during a turbulent time whilst we commit to work relentlessly to prove once again that  NAGA is truly a growing and substantial FinTech company with sustainable revenue  streams and an agile Management who understands how to navigate through tough  times." 

NAGA publishes audited financial statements on October 14th 

Finally, after several months of delay, due to complex audit work, NAGA and its audit  firm E&Y have concluded the work on the audited financial statements and will release  its signed-off financial statements 2021 on October 14th on its website under Financial reports.
