AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SmallCapVoice.com (SCV) and Surge Holdings, Inc. (“Surge”)(the Company) (OTC.QB:SURG), developer of the SurgePays™ Network for convenience stores, bodegas and community markets that provide products to the underbanked, today announced that Company Chairman and CEO, Brian Cox, is featured in a new audio interview series at SmallCapVoice.com.

The interviews can be heard at: https://www.smallcapvoice.com/surge-holdings-surg-surgepays-marketplace-network/.

Brian Cox called in to SmallCapVoice.com to provide the SURG shareholders and the SCV listening audience with an overview of the business model and markets the Company operates in. In the interview, Cox outlines the immense opportunity his company has to serve 35% of the US population who comprise the underbanked market. These are consumers that face a credit challenge or lack access to traditional banking. These nearly 100 million consumers lack the ability to shop at an Amazon for example due to their credit issues. SURG reaches their consumers directly at the financial heartbeats of their communities: the corner stores, markets, tiendas, etc. These consumers represent the “last digital frontier” and Cox and his team have been tapping into this market for the last 20 years.

In addition, Cox was able to provide the listeners with his personal insights into the recent completion of the asset purchase of the ECS Prepaid business, Electronic Check Services business and the Central States Legal Services business (collectively, “ECS”). Cox stated, “Obviously the annual revenue of nearly $50 million for ECS is what jumps off the page, but the real value (with ECS) is the 9,800 convenience stores and the 160 salespeople that service those stores that we have now added. We can now go to these nearly 10,000 locations and offer them not only the ability to take payments and do activations for our own wireless company, Surge Phone Wireless, we can also offer them multiple categorized hot selling products like CBD products, bagged snacks, and t-shirts. All we have to do is increase sales per store by $1,000.00 a month, that scales the revenue of $50 million, that ECS is already doing up to $150 million. Now to put that in perspective, our goal is here is to be is 150,000 stores as quickly as we can. This a great time to go on the record with the knowledgeable listeners at SmallCapVoice.com. We have an extremely compelling story to tell right now given the tremendous progress we have already made and the important steps that lie in front of us as we break into this enormous market opportunity.”
