Wellfield Announces Operational Reorganization to Drive Margin Improvement
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 18, 2023) - Wellfield Technologies, Inc. (TSXV: WFLD) (FSE: K8D) (the "Company" or "Wellfield"), today announces reorganization of core business operations for Coinmama, including enhancing and deepening the utilization of operational partnerships and a reduction of approximately half of its workforce. These improvements are expected to create sustainable gross profit enhancements without impeding Coinmama's ability to service its existing customers and grow its business. As part of the reorganization, the Company is continuing to evaluate each business with the goal to improve margins while maintaining the opportunity for continued growth.
Levy Cohen, CEO of Wellfield commented, "In order to improve our service offering and efficiency across geographies, we're reshaping our operations to be more streamlined and profitable. We have deepened our existing strategic operational partnerships to leverage shared strengths and introduced new technologies which allow us to maintain our highly valued user experience while positioning us to scale our business once our industry enters the next growth stage. We expect that these changes will have an immediate positive impact in improving gross profit in the upcoming quarters. Unfortunately, these changes included releasing great and talented people who have helped build our enduring and trusted brand. This was a tough choice, but one that we believe is necessary to position the company for success in this turbulent but high opportunity ecosystem."
