Toronto, ON, February 11, 2022 – Nerds On Site Inc. (CSE: NERD) (OTCQB: NOSUF) (“NERD” or the “Company”), a mobile IT solutions company servicing Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) marketplaces in Canada and the USA, is pleased to update its stakeholders with recent progress of the Company’s activities.
Following the marketing initiative Cyber-Security Snapshot announced in the press release dated December 09, 2021, NERD has rolled out the second stage of the campaign, providing the SME-Edge solution to targeted SME Clients. The Company’s SME-Edge is its comprehensive cyber-security solution that includes a fully managed network and internet traffic gateway, featuring zero-trust capabilities (see picture below). The self-contained cabinet can be easily configured to work with a Client’s existing IT infrastructure and includes patented cyber-security protection that prevents information-leaking incidents caused by data breaches. The unique solution has been increasingly adopted by the SME community, with millions of Client devices being protected. The Company expects to significantly increase the number of installed SME-Edge packages, subject to the developing condition of global logistics for technology parts.
Business Expansion to the US
NERD has been expanding its business operation to the US, where the market size of the managed IT industry is multiple-times that of the Canadian side, through pursuing Merger and Acquisition (M&A) opportunities. The Company has identified potential M&A targets this past fiscal year and is working through required due diligence processes. Potential targets must share cultural and Client treatment synergies with NERD. NERD is focused on targets that will increase its customer base and provide cyber-security upgrading opportunities, relatively improving its revenue.
Insiders’ Equity Holdings
Since the Company’s Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2018, management and members of the Board of Directors have been consistently acquiring shares through the open market or private placements. The total holding of insiders is approximately 55% of the Company’s total outstanding shares.
Charlie Regan, Co-Founder and CEO of NERD, comments: “According to the Cost of a Data Breach Report in 2021 by IBM, there was a $1.76M cost difference in breaches where a zero-trust approach was deployed versus undeployed. That alarming number is concrete evidence NERD is on the right track to provide unique and advanced solutions to combat cyber-criminals. We are confident that 2022 will be a breakthrough year for the Company with a number of achievements expected.”
