MELBOURNE, Florida, November 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) ("NXT-ID" or the "Company"), a security technology company issued the following response to recent shareholder inquiries concerning the recent downward volatility of its stock.
Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID commented, "We believe the strong downward pressure on the stock in the recent days is not reflective of the underlying value of our company. The prospects of the Company are unchanged from the information in the recently filed 10Q and on the related earnings call.
"On year-to-year basis, we continue to out-perform in terms of revenue, gross profit, and operating income, particularly through LogicMark, which continues to perform at record levels. As was announced recently, the activation of Garmin Pay represents the successful commercialization of FitPay's payment platform, which means that subsidiary is on track to contribute to revenue early in 2018."
Added Pereira, "Equally as important as a result of the recent financing, we've begun taking steps to opportunistically reduce our debt. While that resulted in some dilution, it better positions the Company to refinance our existing debt facility, which we are actively pursuing. We have a number of significant business development opportunities that we are pursuing in Q4 2017 and remain confident that the Company is poised for continued significant growth in 2018."
