Australian Fintech Nauticus Targets $25 Million in Equity Raise

MELBOURNE, Australia, April 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Melbourne fintech Nauticus Blockchain has targeted a $25 million equity raise to fulfill its vision for low cost, borderless financial transactions.

The company launched in 2018 and has amassed a 50,000 strong community across Facebook, Telegram and Twitter, who help guide the development of its products. Trading on its digital currency exchange went live in the fourth quarter of last year. It now offers 17 currencies and AUD with more added each week.

The funds raised will enable Nauticus to onboard 2.9 million users by 2022 and support an extensive cross-platform marketing spend, cross jurisdiction banking and financial licenses and to expand the team internationally. Conservative discounted cash flow analysis values the business post raise at $74.2 million.

Nauticus has 280,000 accounts in 84 countries.

"We urge people who share our vision of ethical, low cost and bordeless finance to join us on this journey," CEO Bryan Ng said.

The head of accounting firm First Accountants, Ng founded the company after watching his overseas born staff members struggle with high fees as they wired money to their families.

"Imagine what a difference it would make in a developing country if 100% of the money arrived in the local economy, rather than 90-95% after the wire transfer companies have taken their cut," he asked.  

With 280,000 accounts in 84 countries around the world, Nauticus is well on its way to becoming Australia's first globally focused digital currency exchange. The team draws talent from National Australia Bank (AUS), ANZ (AUS), Goldman Sachs (UK), Bank of Melbourne (AUS), Accenture (USA), News Corp (AUS) and Telstra (AUS).

Nauticus is built on the twin foundations of security and compliance, a key requirement as the company moves into securities trading, FOREX and international remittances later this year. Nauticus is regulated by AUSTRAC and is an authorized representative of an AFSL licensee, enabling it to tokenize assets and company shares.

The intuitive mobile app has just been submitted to the Google Play store. Based on the Easy Trading Wizard, it aims to making trading digital currencies, FOREX and international payments as simple as possible for newcomers.
