Dallas, Texas (July 15 , 2011) – StockGuru shines its Spotlight on Bitzio, Inc. (OTCBB: BTZO) upon yesterday’s announcement that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a developer of niche mobile applications for smartphones. The Company closed at $0.55 on July 15, 2011, trading on volume of 21,900 shares.
Bitzio Corp., a company separate and distinct from Bitzio, Inc., has been acquired by Bitzio, Inc. Bitzio Corp. has developed over 140 mobile applications in unique vertical markets with over 650,000 downloads in total and is in the process of developing 4,000 additional mobile applications. Bitzio Corp. was founded by Amish Shah in November 2010 and generated application download revenue in its first month of operation.
Shah is considered one of North America’s foremost leaders and experts in the emerging mobile applications space. In addition to his mobile applications business, he has consulted for various blue chip and Fortune 500 companies including Morgan Stanley, AOL andIBM. Shah has joined Bitzio, Inc. as a member of its new Advisory Board.
“We’re very excited to have this suite of applications and talented team as part of Bitzio, Inc.,” said Gordon McDougall, CEO of Bitzio, Inc. “We remain focused on our strategy to broaden our customer base and marketing reach with established and proven mobile application companies that drive value to our bottom line. Amish is extremely well known in the internet marketing and mobile applications industry, with an unprecedented knowledge base on how to build and market multiple applications on varying mobile application platforms. This addition to our company will allow us to attract and accurately assess other pools of talent in the mobile applications community as we continue to execute on our acquisition strategy.”
Amish Shah, founder of Bitzio Corp, notes, “The mobile application space is moving at a pace that few foresaw. Bitzio is at the heart of an industry where experts are estimating revenues of $7.3 billion in 2011 and expecting that revenue to grow over 400% to almost $37 billion by 20151. Quite simply, we have a vision to not only capitalize on this opportunity but also develop a completely new and different mobile development and marketing platform: one that would look at the future – at Web 3.0 – and be on the leading edge of its evolution. With the new team at Bitzio, Inc., this vision is well on its way to becoming a reality.”
