Title to Show on Home Page: TechFinancials sells two subsidiaries for US$400,000
The holdings, which are no longer considered to be core parts of TechFinancials’ business, are being purchased by S Win Holdings.
B O TradeFinancials (BOT) is licensed by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, and is the operator of the group's OptionFair trading platform.
MarketFinancials provides market making services to BOT.
The group’s future business strategy will see it use its experience and expertise on developing its foreign exchange and certificates for deposit (CFD) solutions, which in future will incorporate solutions for the fast-growing blockchain-based sector.
Talking of the latter, the group has been developing technology to integrate the crypto-payment processing of Bitcoin, BitcoinCash and Etherium into TechFinancials' core systems, and expects these developments to be implemented in the first quarter of 2018.
Additionally, the group will continue to apply its technology and knowledge to support the innovative CEDEX project that intends to use blockchain technology to revolutionise the diamond-trading market.
"As a consequence of the regulatory changes which have impacted the binary options sector, these subsidiary holdings have become non-core to future business growth strategy,” said Asaf Lahav, chief executive of TechFinancials.
“The company intends to use its expertise to develop its Forex and CFD solutions and target the rapidly growing blockchain-based products and technologies market, and will use the proceeds of the sale to help build its presence in these new areas," he added.
Shares in TechFinancials rose 11.1% to 7.5p on the news.
