MICT Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

– Conference call scheduled for Monday, August 17, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. EDT

– Closed acquisition of Global Fintech Holdings with $15 million in committed funding

– Increased stake in Micronet telematics business to over 50%

MONTVALE, N.J., Aug. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ —  MICT, Inc. (Nasdaq: MICT), today announced financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

“We are very pleased and excited to have recently closed the acquisition of Global Fintech Holdings (GFH) and increased our stake in Micronet to majority owner, which we believe positions MICT to grow revenues and earnings through operating businesses in the global fintech and telematics industries. Pending shareholder approval at our September 3, 2020 special meeting of stockholders, MICT will receive the balance of the $15 million that remains to be funded, which will enable MICT to execute on additional opportunities through organic growth and accretive acquisitions. We are currently evaluating acquisition candidates in our pipeline, and look forward to announcing the achievement of additional revenue-driving events in due course,” stated MICT CEO Darren Mercer. 

“The global logistics and transportation telematics industry, expected to be valued at $45 billion by 2022,  is rapidly evolving and we have identified key opportunities for Micronet’s suite of world class telematics technologies. Through GFH’s deep experience and network in the Asian markets, we believe we are well positioned to expand Micronet’s business beyond the U.S. and Europe, into Asia. We believe that the acquisition of GFH brings crossover benefits to the telematics business, and is a driving reason for MICT’s decision to increase its stake in Micronet,” Mercer concluded.

Between February 24, 2019 and June 23, 2020 MICT held less than 50% ownership of Micronet’s outstanding ordinary shares, and therefore did not include Micronet’s financial results during that time in its consolidated financial statements based on U.S. generally accepted accounting practices (GAAP). MICT will include Micronet’s financial results in its consolidated statements in the third quarter of 2020.
