Austin, Texas [May 13, 2021] (ORIGINAL: GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2021.
“The completion of Q1 constitutes a positive operational inflection point for our business as we have quickly made our Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform vision become reality across a number of key fronts,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “Not only have we commenced the full roll out of our blockchain-enabled Mobile Loyalty Ecosystem specific to PhunToken, PhunCoin and PhunWallet as promised, but we have also executed a global distribution agreement with an anchor distribution partner that will be formally announced in the next several weeks. While we continue to work through what appears to be the final stages of the Covid pandemic operationally, we are both excited and comforted by the dramatic increase in business activity across all aspects of our software product and solution offerings for mobile, big data and the cloud. Importantly, these encompass all three of our core growth engines rolling forward, including our MaaS cloud, our data-driven loyalty marketplace and our secure, blockchain-enabled token, coin and wallet capabilities.”
First Quarter 2021 Summary Financial Results
- Net Revenues for the quarter totaled $1.6 million
