"We look forward to working with NYSADA to continue to showcase the value that Hank brings to both dealers and consumers."

Hank continues to progress on the previously announced mortgage payment company acquisition. The transaction is expected to close in the near term. Concurrently, Hank is working with the targeted company to make Hank's mobile enrolment technology available to their mortgage brokers and expects to commence roll-out shortly after closing.
