Update on UK electronic money institution application
MobilityOne (AIM: MBO), the e-commerce infrastructure payment solutions and platform provider, provides the following update in respect of the Group's proposed expansion of its business in the UK through M-One Tech Limited, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary.
On 23 January 2023, the Group announced the submission of the Group's revised application to the Financial Conduct Authority (the "FCA"), the financial regulatory body in the UK, for authorisation as an electronic money institution to provide e-money services in the UK (together the "Revised FCA Application").
The Group has received feedback from the FCA in relation to the Revised FCA Application requesting, amongst other matters, further information in relation to certain disclosures relating to M-One Tech Limited's proposed business plan. While this feedback is welcomed, the Group has now accordingly withdrawn its Revised FCA Application.
The Group is reviewing its proposed business plan in the UK and its options in relation to submitting a further revised FCA application in due course which addresses the FCA's latest feedback.
The Group will release further announcements as and when appropriate.
