Chicago, IL, March 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FOMO CORP. (OTC Pink: FOMC) is pleased to provide stockholders and the investment community with an update on the business of its recently acquired SMARTSolution Technologies LP (“SST”) subsidiary. SST is a Pittsburgh, PA–based audiovisual systems integration company that designs and builds presentation, teleconferencing and collaborative systems for businesses, educational institutions and other nonprofits organizations. SST has posted strong year over year closed (unaudited) sales numbers that illustrate robust growth:
2022 (Jan-Feb): $2,182,504
Based on substantial sales at and following the PETE&C (https://www.peteandc.org/) show in Hershey, PA last month, we expect sales to continue to trend upwards setting the stage for SST to generate record annual performance in 2022. As a result of the increased emphasis on EdTech, SST recently closed a purchase order for 263 SMART interactive displays with a total order value of more than $1.3 million for the month of February, with March’s order book at similar levels based on recent wins of multiple K12 school districts. Today, SST has a backlog of several million dollars, including equipment sales and associated installation business, with deliveries scheduled through 2Q22-3Q22.
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, in which we accordingly anticipate continued significant sales growth during 2022. For further information see:
Vik Grover, FOMO CORP. 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-19 showing no signs of going away, including the new stealth Omicron variant, which is the most infectious strain ever, and masks off/optional policies now in vogue, schools need interactive whiteboards more than ever to allow students in the classroom and at home to be able to share and participate in the same curriculum. There are numerous additional acquisition targets in the sector to add scale and we intend to aggressively bulk up to build a super-regional footprint as well as density in out of market areas. To this end, 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. Moreover, we intend to explore potentially marketing on our IAQ clean tech portfolio of UVC disinfection products to SST’s customer base. Despite the difficult situations around the world, FOMO management believes that these domestic opportunities afford us substantial windows for growth.”
