on

Glance Technologies (OTC:GLNNF) this week announced financial results for the three month period ending Feb. 28, 2019.

Overview

Glance realized its first ever net income in Q1 2019 of $4,816,906 or $0.04 per share. A combination of improved investments and decreased expenses gets the credit. Working capital on Feb. 28, 2019 was $11,204,000. There is no long-term debt.

During the quarter, Glance continued to focus on recently announced innovations including Real-Time Bill and Order-from-Table. Glance launched Real-Time Bill to the public in Q1 and anticipates launching Order-from-Table soon. Subsequent to the quarter, Glance also announced its upcoming Order-From-Bar product. 

These innovations utilize Glance anti-fraud technology to protect merchants and leverage Glance’s promotion and loyalty platform to help increase sales and loyalty. Glance has increased its sales team and is focused on signing up new merchants with these products and targeting its marketing efforts around merchants adopting these features.

“We are convinced that products like our Real-Time Bill, Order-From-Table, and Order-From-Bar are the future of paying and ordering,” said Desmond Griffin, Glance CEO. “We believe they have the potential to disrupt the industry, including leapfrogging the adoption technologies such as chip and PIN machines in the US.”
