      What Has Been Hurting MOGO Stock in Regular Session? - Stocks Telegraph

      Mogo Inc. (NASDAQ: MOGO) finds itself in a state of retrenchment, its shares experiencing a decline of -4.84 % to reach a value of $1.97 during the regular session on Monday. This downturn follows an impressive surge of 172.87% that propelled the stock to a closing price of $2.07 in the previous trading session.

      The present correction underscores a natural oscillation in the stock’s value, arising in the wake of a substantial surge witnessed on the preceding Friday—a surge attributed to a significant agreement.

      In a strategic move, Mogo Inc. (MOGO) disclosed an alteration to its collaborative marketing agreement with Postmedia Network Inc. in the previous week. The pact, now extended until December 31, 2024, fortifies the relationship between Mogo and the esteemed Canadian news media entity, Postmedia.

      With a formidable presence across various print, online, and mobile platforms—encompassing more than 130 brands—Postmedia effectively reaches a staggering monthly audience of CAD17.4 million.

      The alliance with Postmedia has proven invaluable to Mogo, thus prompting the extension of the marketing collaboration until the conclusion of 2024. As Mogo steers its focus back to expansion, it anticipates that the expansive outreach of Postmedia will assume a pivotal role in fostering product awareness and augmenting membership growth. Concurrently, this synergy will further enhance the Mogo brand in a resource-efficient manner.

      Operative from January 1, 2023, the extended agreement between Mogo and Postmedia enables Mogo to enjoy preferential access to Postmedia’s expansive network. Moreover, this extension prompts the recalibration of the exercise price for the 77,778 outstanding MOGO warrants in Postmedia’s possession, now set at $2.79 per share.

      Each of these warrants empowers Postmedia to acquire a single Mogo share. The extension also stretches the term of these warrants from January 25, 2023, to September 20, 2025.

      Correspondingly, Mogo commits to issuing an additional 89,000 warrants, identical in their privileges to the amended warrants. These new warrants confer Postmedia the right to obtain Mogo shares at the revised price, spanning a tenure of 2 years and 6 months from the date of issuance. It’s important to note that the issuance of the new warrants and the amendments to the existing ones are contingent upon approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

      Over the preceding year, Mogo has diligently concentrated its human and financial resources on propelling the trajectory toward profitability. This concerted effort involves streamlining product offerings and optimizing operational efficiency.

      This recalibration positions Mogo to scale in a sustainable manner while concurrently assuming the mantle of a cost-effective provider within its markets. The accomplishments of Mogo thus far are notable, and it anticipates a phase of future expansion, during which its core pillars—Wealth, Payments, and Lending—will emerge as robust catalysts for profitable growth.
