PowerBand Sees Further US$1.2 Million Investment From D&P Holdings

PowerBand Solutions (TSXV: PBX) has secured further funding from D&P Holdings, one of the largest administrators of automotive warranty and insurance products in the US. D&P has advanced a further US$1.2 million in connection with its previously announced US$10 million investment in the firm.

The investment is a part of the overall US$10 million investment by D&P into PowerBand’s subsidiary, PowerBand Solutions US and its cloud-based platform. The transactional platform enables consumers and dealers to buy, sell, lease and trade vehicles from their smartphone or other device from the comfort of their own home.

To date, D&P Holdings has completed investments of US$2.7 million into PowerBand Solutions US under the previously announced US$10 million arrangement, which remains on track to be completed by May 6, 2020. Additional, D&P has also completed a US$2.5 million investment into PowerBand’s Canadian leasing division.

The company also announced that the firms transaction platform in the US, Musa Auto Finance, is now ready for activation. The platform is able to take an application, calculate a lease, auto-decision the application and provide an approval in seconds. The proprietary tech enables MUSA to secure a contract with Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) in 2018.

COVID-19 has been a challenge for us all. But this pandemic has also highlighted that PowerBand’s mission — to allow people to buy, sell, lease and trade cars and trucks as easily as you order a product from Amazon or order an Uber on your smart phone from home — is essential for consumers and the future of the industry. PowerBand is well-capitalized, our negotiations to secure extensive credit facilities are advancing and our technology platforms have never been more ready.

    This is such an interesting deal.

    Not a great look to not have full funds in. The valuation is wild. But $1.2M USD is not a small amount.

    Looking at Carvana we know the market loves auto fintech.

    Worth keeping an eye on, IMO.

      They make it so you can lease a care on an app. And do your trade in.

      That wasn’t so hard was it?

      I think they get something done. Doubtful D&P keeps throwing money at this thing if they don’t like the chances.

      Time will tell.

    Powerband is one of those stocks that could be $10 in 2 years. Or worth nothing.

    The comps are crazy.

    Is anyone going to be buying cars with the current state of the economy?

      Ya, this too shall pass. And the economy won’t be as strong (IMO).

      Things arent binary (1 and 0s)..

      People will still buy cars, but are more likely to buy them online after all is said and done…

      Powerband needs to get their solution running NOW…
