"We are evolving as a diversified digital asset company, seeking to capitalize upon inherent, existing synergies in our operating businesses and expanding our presence in the crypto ecosystem," said BIGG Digital Assets Interim CEO Dan Reitzik. “BIGG’s recent successful financing is a testament to the strength, resilience and growth prospects of its businesses. The financing enhances BIGG’s financial flexibility, key for executing our strategic growth plans and generating long-term shareholder value. We are well capitalized, with current combined cash and crypto holdings of approximately $30 million. Until recently share prices of crypto-related stocks were directly correlated with the rise and fall of crypto prices, regardless of the business itself. Moving forward, we believe that publicly traded crypto companies will likely be valued not just by the overall crypto markets and crypto prices but also similarly to traditional high-growth technology companies; based on revenues, growth, product offerings, etc. We are pleased with Netcoins’ Q1 2024 results and are focused on all of BIGG’s divisions to follow suit with expected user growth and launching of new products and services aimed at larger audiences.”

BIGG’s unaudited consolidated interim financial statements and related management’s discussion and analysis for the three months ended March 31, 2024, will be prepared and filed on SEDAR+ within the regulatory filing timelines.
