Mobi724 is issuing the following Update on the status of the MDA & the Promerica Agreement:

  • Both the MDA & Promerica Agreement are moving into the production stage as the commercial operations are scheduled to be launched in Guatemala on the last week of April 2021.

  • Grupo Promerica & Mobi724 (the "Parties") have identified Costa-Rica as the next country where commercial operations under the Promerica Agreement are to be launched followed by Panama, Honduras, and Ecuador.

  • The Parties intend to gradually increase the scope of commercial operations under the Promerica Agreement over the coming quarters. The timing of the deployment in each country will be defined by the Parties based on business objectives and other commercial factors.

  • The travel & entertainment ("T&E") offering supported through the MDA is a part of Club Promerica, which is the loyalty solution of Grupo Promerica. The T&E is accessible for Cardholders carrying debit & credit cards from both major global brands issued by Grupo Promerica.
