VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neptune Dash Technologies Corp. (“Neptune Dash” or the “Company”) (TSX.V:DASH) (OTC:NPPTF) (FWB:1NW) is pleased to announce that the Company has released results of its first quarter ended November 30, 2018. The Company has also implemented an aggressive cost cutting regime in order to avoid raising funds for a number of years, therefore reducing potential dilution to existing shareholders and avoiding a rollback of the stock.

“2018 was a very difficult year in the cryptocurrency space with unforeseen price drops on virtually all tokens. Given our share price reflects those crypto assets held by the Company, shareholders also saw a major drop in the Company’s share price. Neptune Dash remains committed to our shareholders and Dash cryptocurrency and as such will implement as much cost cutting as necessary to make sure the Company can see through another 24-36 months without contemplating any capital raises,” stated Cale Moodie, Neptune Dash CEO.

Neptune Dash has implemented a number of cost cutting strategies in order to preserve capital which includes, partial accrual of management salaries, substantial reduction in paid marketing efforts and reduction in office costs by moving to office sharing. With these cost cutting measures in place the Company expects it can run operations for another two to three years without any capital raising or selling any of its digital currency assets.

Quarterly Highlights and Financial Information

  • As at November 30, 2018 the Company had $900,000 in cash and $2.45M in digital currency.

  • The Company’s net losses from continuing operations during the three months ended November 30, 2018 were $(3,475,493), however it is important to note that the majority of this loss was non-cash $(3,313,547) and mostly related to the revaluation of digital currencies on the balance sheet.

  • The Company spent roughly $162,000 in cash during the three months ended November 30, 2018. The Company’s goal is to reduce this further to provide a multi year runway to weather a potentially longer term crypto bear market.

  • The Company earned 319 Dash tokens during the three months ended November 30, 2018 and held 19,144 Dash tokens as at November 30, 2018.

  • A comprehensive discussion of Neptune’s financials and operations are provided in the Company's “Management Discussion & Analysis and Financial Statements” filed with SEDAR and can be found on www.sedar.com or www.neptunedash.com.

Neptune Dash is pleased to announce the appointment of Dustin Zinger, as Investor Relations Manager, effective January 2018.
