MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 28, 2022 / Cuentas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CUEN & CUENW) ("Cuentas"), a leading fintech provider of mobile financial and payment solutions, and prepaid wireless and digital provider SDI Black 011, have finalized a second amendment to the binding letter of intent to acquire the operations of Black011.com which includes the distribution network of 31,600 bodegas & convenience stores and the proprietary platform which produced revenue over $8.2 million in 2021.
In the amendment, the two companies have committed to a closing date of May 20, 2022 with conditional penalties if either party fails to close.
"This acquisition will lead to numerous opportunities to distribute Cuentas' digital services to more than 31,600 new locations," said Jeff Johnson, CEO of Cuentas. "Cuentas is investing in our plans to accelerate the reach of the Cuentas prepaid debit card and digital wallet via retail, mobile and other channels."
Cuentas invested in the expansion of the Black011.com network in 2021 which included penetration in the NYC Tristate area. Cuentas plans to use the Black011.com platform to enable new locations and reinforce its position as one of the top competitors in the prepaid bodega distribution market in the US.
The Black011.com B2B portal serves more than 31,600 US bodegas, wireless retailers, and convenience stores, enabling retailers to sell from a portfolio of virtual products without carrying inventory, generating incremental profits in real-time.
Black011 and its brands already have a large database of subscribers who purchase services, via the Black011.com website and digital portal. This allows Black011.com to be one of the largest distribution channels for prepaid wireless services and digital content in the US.
Upon completion of this acquisition, Black011.com subscribers and retailers would gain access to Cuentas solutions including the Cuentas Prepaid Debit card, NY Transit cards and reloads, Amazon cash, digital gift cards, new offers and more.
