FOMO CORP.

Chicago, IL, April 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FOMO CORP. (US OTC: FOMC) reports its subsidiary SMARTSolution Technologies LP (“SST”) has been posting strong sales that illustrate record levels and robust growth projected for 2022:

2020*: $3,070,300
2021*: $5,053,539
2022 (Jan-Mar)*: $2,746,378
2022E* $8-10 million

*All numbers are unaudited; projections are management’s best forecast but subject to change.

Based on substantial sales at and following the PETE&C (https://www.peteandc.org/) show in Hershey, PA in February 2022, management expects sales to continue to trend upwards setting the stage for SST to generate projected record annual 2022E revenues of $8-10 million. SST closed a purchase order from one school district for 263 of SMART interactive displays, with a total order value of more than $1.3 million in the month of February, with March’s sales booked at $563K based on recent wins with multiple K12 school districts for whiteboards and video walls. Today, SST has a backlog of several million dollars, including equipment sales and associated installation business, with deliveries scheduled for 2Q22-3Q22.

To unlock shipments of equipment for these sales, FOMO raised $1 million in the past week from third-party lenders including a $185,000 investment from the founder of SST. Additionally, SST’s supplier SMART Technologies (Canada) has indicated it intends to raise SST’s credit limit for equipment orders from $1 million to $3 million, which will unlock supply for all signed orders. SST is a diamond channel partner for SMART and is first in line for orders and shipments.

From a top-down level, there remain hundreds of billions of stimulus dollars allocated for public schools (“ESSER”) and additional significant funding allocated for private schools under the CARES Act. School budgeting windows typically range from April-May of the calendar year, which positions SST for robust growth after existing backlog is delivered and orders for the next school year commence.

Vik Grover FOMO CEO said: “The EdTech market is a great business not only due to the ongoing refresh cycle of equipment, but because it is evolutionary for instructors and students and the way they interact. With COVID showing no signs of going away, including the new stealth Omicron variant, and masks off/optional policies now in play, K12 schools need interactive whiteboards more than ever to allow students in classroom, at home, or elsewhere to be able to share the same curriculum. There are numerous acquisition targets in the EdTech sector to add scale. We intend to aggressively bulk up to build a super-regional footprint as well as density in out of market areas. We are forming a plan to move SST from its bread-and-butter region of eastern Ohio/western Pennsylvania to other markets, including certain southern states, Michigan and Alabama aided by our Advisory Board members former Congressman Kosowski of Michigan and former Senator Dial of Alabama. Meanwhile, we are strategizing to cross-sell our IAQ clean tech portfolio of UVC disinfection, including disinfection robots supplied by a spin-off of a world leader in the sector, to SST’s embedded base to help reopen schools in these challenging times. Despite the difficult situations around the world, which have no bearing on the K12 market, the domestic opportunity is significant and in our strike zone, which gives FOMO’s portfolio of companies substantial windows for growth.”
