NexTech AR Solutions Corp. Discusses The Future of Virtual Conferencing and AR Technology with The Stock Day Podcast
Phoenix, Arizona--(Newsfile Corp. - July 14, 2020) - The Stock Day Podcast welcomed NexTech AR Solutions Corp. (OTCQB: NEXCF) ("the Company"), a leader in the rapidly growing AR industry, estimated to hit $120 billion by 2022, according to Statista. CEO of the Company, Evan Gappelberg, joined Stock Day host Everett Jolly.
Jolly began the interview by noting that the Company previously appeared on the Stock Day Podcast in March of this year, and was trading at under a dollar during that time. "Now it's trading over six dollars," said Jolly, adding that Gappelberg has purchased NEXCF stock in the open market. "When I see our company undervalued, which it has been for a long time, I'll step in and buy stock," said Gappelberg. "I've purchased over a million shares of my own company's stock in 2020 and invested significant amounts of money," he added. "I am the single largest shareholder," said Gappelberg. "I absolutely see the value, and still see value."
Jolly then asked about the progress of the Company's video conferencing technology. "That business has been very strong. It has taken off," shared Gappelberg. "We're landing more deals with each deal between $25,000 and $250,000," he explained. "We're in the right place at the right time," said Gappelberg, noting the increasing demands to work and shop from home. "There's a $150 billion industry that has been displaced," he continued when discussing video conferencing capabilities. "And that $150 billion is now chasing after some platform."
"InfernoAR is a very robust platform. We've also integrated augmented reality into it, which adds additional features and functionality, making it immersive, fun, and interactive. So, that's why our platform is doing really well," said Gappelberg.
The conversation then turned to the Company's plans to uplist to the NASDAQ. "We announced that we've filed to uplist last week, so it is in motion," said Gappelberg. "We've been told that it takes three to four weeks for them to review the application," he explained. "So, it could take 60 days, but we're very focused on getting that approved."
"How do things look for the next six months going forward?" asked Jolly. "It is a difficult world business-wise, personal-wise," said Gappelberg. "Our business is benefiting from the pandemic economy," he said. "Going forward, into 2020 and 2021, until there is a vaccine and everyone gets vaccinated, which is possibly a 12-24 month process, our business is just going to continue to do very well," shared Gappelberg. "I also expect that the ROI on these virtual events is going to drive businesses to permanently adopt them."
To close the interview, Gappelberg shared that the Company has been fortunate to have developed their video conferencing technology during a period of such high demand. "Timing is everything," he shared. "NexTech is at the right time at the right place with the right product."
