Luvleen Sidhu one of the Youngest Female Founders and CEOs to Ever Take a Company Public
NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BM Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American: BMTX, BMTX.W), one of the largest digital banking platforms in the country, announced that the company commenced trading on the NYSE American on January 6, 2021 under the ticker symbols “BMTX” and “BMTX.W.”
The newly formed listing is the result of the sale of BankMobile Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Customers Bank, a Pennsylvania bank, to Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC), Megalith Financial Acquisition Corp. The new parent company, BM Technologies, Inc. will be one of the first publicly traded neo banking fintechs and one of the first de-SPACs of 2021.
“I am proud to see BM Technologies take this historic step and enter the public markets,” said Co-Founder and CEO Luvleen Sidhu. “We are delighted to be one of the first neo banking fintechs to go public. We are also EBITDA positive today, which serves to set us apart from other neo banking fintechs in the market.”
Sidhu, who started the company at age 28, is now one of the few young, female CEOs of a publicly traded company and likely the youngest female founder and CEO to ever take a company public. She founded the company with the mission to create a financially empowering banking experience rooted in affordability, transparency, and exceptional customer service.
Sidhu, who has overseen the strategy since the 2015 launch, also helped develop the company’s disruptive, multi-partner distribution model known as “Banking-as-a-Service” (BaaS). BM Technologies partners with large companies with established customer bases to leverage its technology and significantly reduce customer acquisition costs while providing substantial benefits to its business and banking partners. Today, BMTX provides its BaaS platform to colleges and universities through BankMobile Disbursements, which serves more than five million students on 722 campuses nationwide. Through this distribution channel, BMTX serves one in every three college students in the country. BMTX also offers its BankMobile Workplace Banking platform, a financial wellness service that offers innovative banking products that carry generous interest, early payday, built-in money management tools, over 55,000 fee-free Allpoint® ATMs, and a robust banking app through its banking partners.
Additionally, BMTX recently announced the execution of an agreement with Google to introduce digital bank accounts, which will be available to its customers. BMTX has also expanded its white-label strategy with T-Mobile for the launch of T-Mobile MONEY.
“We are well positioned for growth and innovation and look forward to building our business over the coming years and taking advantage of all strategic opportunities,” noted Sidhu.
