This company is offering 1.875 million shares of common stock in its NASDAQ listing, which will see it join the index under the ticker symbol ‘NFTU’. The shares are expected to sell for between $4.00 and $5.00.

What is Ultimax Digital?

The business was formed in 2018 as Ultimas, with the intention of helping video game developers to implement in-game purchases in their titles.

2020 saw the business pivot to the publishing of video games. Then, 2021 saw the business increase its scope to include the development of a Non-Fungible Token marketplace and technology infrastructure to allow other video game developers the ability to add in-game NFT minting by game players.

The business says that it offers potential investors exposure to the rapidly growing and potentially transformative video game and NFT markets while mitigating downside risk via a diversified model.

However, the company had no revenue in 2020 and 2021. As a result, management and its auditors have concluded that historical recurring losses from operations and unstable cash flows from operations raise substantial doubt about the business’s ability to continue as a going concern.

WestPark Capital is heading Ultimax Digital’s IPO.

NFTU IPO Use of Proceeds

The business has offered no specific details on splitting the proceeds.

Ultimax has merely stated that it currently intends to use the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including growth capital, working capital, operating expenses, hiring, potential acquisitions, repayment of the outstanding principal and interest of its 2018 promissory notes, repayment of those convertible notes which are not converted into common stock by holders, and capital expenditures.
