Nacka Strand 28th February 2017. Stockholm based Trig Social Media Group AB (ISIN SE0006027546 | WKN A116BG | Kürzel TRIG) has acquired Pimboo OÜ which empowers users to create, curate and monetise content and social media and Fantrac Global Ltd, owners of the Myfantrac.com which monetises celebrity social media.

Pimboo OÜ (www.pimboo.com) is a start up internet company that provides software tools free of charge to its users that allow them to create, curate or simply share fun & engaging content all over the web and get paid for doing so. The company has been in beta launch mode since early October and already has over 595,000 members in its network. In addition, users can invite their friends to the network and generate commissions from the content they create and share as well, which has contributed to the fast growth of the company.

“This acquisition gives us the exposure and resources we need to grow,” said Matthew Connelly, CEO of Pimboo OÜ, adding, “We are extremely excited about joining the team at Trig and Fantrac which we believe will accelerate our plans to expand our unique business model throughout the world.”

Pimboo.com has quickly shot up the Alexa traffic rankings in the past few months to the point of being in the top 362,000 in the world as well as top 32,000 in the USA. Despite that, Connelly feels that the company has only scratched the surface of its potential, saying “We launched with a very basic tool set and have even been a bit surprised ourselves at the demand our product has had since the outset. That being said, we understand we are in front of a wave here where the average internet user understands the content they are creating and sharing everyday has a price tag associated with it, and they expect to get their fair share of it in this decentralized web we are seeing unfold. We feel confident about being in front of this massive shift as the web continues to move to a decentralized model- along with our product and strategy to monetize it so our members keep using our tools and also refer their friends going forward.”

Fantrac Global Ltd ( www.myfantrac.com ) allows anyone or brand with a large social media fanbase or following to create an individual portal for their fans, allowing the fans to engage directly with their favourite celebrities, musicians, you tubers, brands or sports teams. The myfantrac.com platform offers fans numerous opportunities to engage with those that they follow whether it be seeing all of their existing social media in one place or learning about what apps they are downloading, what games they are playing and where they buy their clothes and favourite products. This gives fans unprecedented behind the scenes access to the lifestyles of those they follow.

Currently Celebrities are offering exclusive competitions with exclusive access through Fantrac and soon the fans will be able to earn Celebrity award points every time they interact with their Celebrities Fantrac page for which their favourite Celebrity will offer their own rewards.

Wayne Lochner, one of Fantrac Global’s Founders said “we are delighted to have agreed a deal with Trig as they and Pimboo bring a wealth of experience and expertise that will undoubtedly help the myfantrac.com platform grow further and assist us in creating new channels for our celebrity clients to offer to their fans.”

Anthony Norman, CEO of Trig Social Media AB, had this to say about the acquisitions: “We are pleased to get these deals done and couldn’t be more excited about the partnership going forward. Our core strategy is to own and provide the technologies that empower everyone to own and monetise their media and content be that directly or through social media. We feel that the acquisition of Pimboo and Fantrac is the first step that will ultimately the drive value our shareholders are expecting and deserve.”

Nacka Strand, March 16th 2016: Trig is delighted to report that Trig Media Group, Trig Social Media’s mother company, has acquired 100% of Webstamp World Wide AB. In connection to this transaction, Trig Social Media has signed an exclusive worldwide Webstamp reseller contract with its mother company. The base of the contract is a revenue share and operational management agreement.

Webstamp’s core product is a virtual stamp (webstamp) carrying a logo of one’s favourite charity or club.  It is the synthesis of all recent IT trends and aims to expose one’s personal identity and values through an active support of a particular organization. The webstamp itself is attached to one’s e-mails and other electronic documents and carries links to messages attached to the stamp’s profile. The model is based on revenue share with the charities and organisations promoted. The main product and operational organization are currently being finalised. However, previous trials have beenvery successful.

This deal is another step forward on the way to create a new sustainable Trig. It increases the value of our offering within social media and gives us another innovating product that appeals to both users and business clients.


Adhoc announcement according to article 15 WpHG

Nacka Strand, 07 March 2016: Trig social media AB is delighted to announce acquisition of 50.5% of www.social-commerce.co and its holding company Fusion Finance with an option to acquire the remaining 49.5% toward the end of the year. The transaction will be completed with 9 million Trig Social Media shares to be issued shortly. The price for the remaining 49.5% is performance based.

Social-commerce is a gamified gig economy platform with an affiliate component that is about to launch within the next two weeks. What makes it unique is the mix of freebies, products and services connected with a social element. The expectation is that this platform should start generating revenue within two to four months after going live.

This acquisition is an exciting opportunity for both our product users and for shareholders. It creates a unique strategic opportunity of utilising our existing social media expertise and connecting it to social commerce.

This acquisition also marks the first major change based on our new operational strategy aiming to make the company cashflow neutral within the next twelve months. More changes are on the way and shortly will be communicated shortly. As a part of this, the board is also looking at redefining operational structure including outsourcing and licensing out some of the existing products on a revenue share basis in order to reduce running costs and speed up marketing.


Nacka Strand, 11 February 2016: Trig Social Media AB has commenced an operational business structure improvement program with the aim to increase market and customer focus. The program is focused on product based subsidiaries and its implementation is now under way.

This change will allow for each product to have a core team responsible for its success and will remove the product “Cinderella effect”. A further decision has also been made to potentially open product focused subsidiaries in other regions if this eases the entry barriers in those markets, primarily through joint venture arrangements.

As a part of this strong drive and in order to enhance the group’s offering, Trig Social Media is also currently considering investing in new and existing social media business, exploring the so called “gig economy” and online royalty companies. This will generate passive income as well as provide the group with opportunities for cross-selling and addition of Value Added Services.  Any such investments will be made to compliment and improve the company’s current product and customer offering mix.

Trig Social Media is also further fine-tuning its Fusion concept of product marketing and is expecting to launch this over the next 5 weeks. Fusion was originally supposed to be launched last year but it was decided that the concept was not yet ready to go live as it was not taking into account cultural differences in its targeted market regions. The new Fusion will instead be a region tailored offer, more in tune with the local “wants and needs”.

All these improvements will refocus Trig’s products on their users. Something that the board of directors feels is a key success factor for the business. It is expected that this will result in stronger corporate finances and substantially increased business growth.

 

The board is also intending to increase corporate communication frequency and reporting which they acknowledge has recently been moderate. To further support the new operational approach and improve the group’s finances, the management team has agreed to convert some of the company’s debt to them into equity, further underlining the management’s commitment to the success of Trig Social Media.

These are the first of many changes that the newly elected board anticipates taking place in the near future. The company is still facing many challenges but it is now actively taking steps to address these.


Adhoc announcement according to article 15 WpHG

Stockholm, 28 December 2015: Trig Social Media held an Extraordinary General Meeting on December 23 to elect a new board of Directors.

We are pleased to announce election of two new directors Mr. Thomas Arebo and Mr. Björn Palm and, the re-election of Mr. Peter Kristoffersson. Mr Arebo has held different management roles in a number of IT companies both in Sweden and abroad and has over the past six months advised Trig Social Media on legal matters. Mr. Palm has a background in the telecoms industry with focus on concept management and corporate development. Mr. Kristoffersson will continue to focus on operational success of the business.

It is also with sadness we report that Mr. Phillip Cook will no longer be serving as a director of the company due to family commitments. Mr. Arebo will take over as the chairman of the board.
