NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2020 Voyager Digital Ltd. ("Voyager" or the "Company") (CSE: VYGR) (OTCQB: VYGVF) (FRA: UCD2), a publicly traded, licensed crypto-asset broker that provides investors with a turnkey solution to invest in crypto assets, today announced select financial results for its fiscal 2021 first quarter ended September 30, 2020 and is pleased to provide shareholders with a business and operational update.
For more detailed information, the Company encourages investors to read its interim financial statements and related Management Discussion & Analysis ("MD&A") for the three months ended September 30, 2020, which will be filed with SEDAR today.
"Our strong fiscal 2020 momentum carried over into the first fiscal quarter of 2021, where we saw record revenue and customer asset growth," said Stephen Ehrlich, Co-founder and CEO of Voyager. "As a result of the continued adoption of our trusted and secure platform, our revenue grew approximately 200% on a sequential basis during the September quarter. More recently, our Assets Under Management (AUM) exceeded $150 million, up significantly from the $100 million we reported on November 6th. Voyager's business is built to scale and excel in both up and down markets, as customers tend to trade when the markets move in either direction. Additionally when markets are flat, Voyager still earns revenue on account balances due to our interest model."
Mr. Ehrlich continued, "We have seen the acceleration of mainstream acceptance of cryptocurrencies as an asset class, and customers are increasingly turning to our platform to do their investing, as users of the platform have already increased over 20% since September. Customers are increasingly joining us at Voyager, where they can trade commission-free and earn interest on over 50 digital assets. Notably, while the rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has contributed to our AUM growth, more than 65% of the growth is driven by increased user deposits."
