Rewardle Holdings Limited
Social media company Rewardle Holdings Limited (ASX: RXH) connects more than 3.2 million members with nearly 5,000 local businesses across Australia.
Strategic Partnership with Pepper Leaf Meal Kit Delivery Service: RXH today (as on 18th June 2019) announced that as part of its strategy to leverage its operations, it has entered a strategic partnership with Pepper Leaf, a subscription-based meal kit service provider. RXH will help Melbourne-based Pepper Leaf in growing its business through marketing, operational support and corporate strategy services, and in return, Pepper Leaf will compensate it with combined options to acquire shares in Pepper Leaf (Options) and hourly rate service fees (Cash). Pepper Leaf will issue 12 million options with an exercise price of A$0.125 and an expiry tenure of four years to Rewardle Holdings Limited. This way, RXH will own ~54% in Pepper Leaf. RXH will receive fees in the form of cash for a variety of business services based on mutually agreed time and materials rates.
The Management of RXH believed that Pepper Leaf is a great and profitable business, ideally placed to capitalise on the disruption of the country’s food and grocery sector valued at A$100 billion. With this development, RXH will provide Pepper Leaf a substantial operating advantage which will decelerate the customer acquisition costs. The Management of Pepper Leaf considers this opportunity to scale up the business, which is constrained by high competition and unprofitable customer acquisition costs that otherwise compromise the meal kit business model.
In response to the ASX query dated 15th May 2019, the company recently updated that it expects slightly negative operating cash flows for the time being, which are expected to decrease, going forward, due to the continuous focus on cost reduction and development of existing and new revenue streams. RXH experienced its first month of positive operating cash flow and decreased sequential operating cash outflow by 48% from A$369,000 to A$195,000 during the March quarter.
The company, in the month of January 2019, announced the joining of Mr. Rodney House as a Non-Executive Director of the company.
