“Revenue for the third quarter of 2017 slowed as World Ventures still has significant inventory of Flye cards for distribution. Our expectation is for this to continue into the fourth quarter of 2017,” said Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID. “LogicMark continues to perform at record levels. As we announced previously, Garmin's new vívoactive 3 smartwatch includes NFC payment technology powered by FitPay. We expect meaningful revenues from this partnership, and others, early in 2018. Operating expenses for the nine months and Q3 2017 increased due to the acquired overhead from the FitPay acquisition. We have a number of significant business development opportunities that we are pursuing in Q4 2017 and remain confident that the Company is poised for continued significant growth in 2018.”
