Prodigy Ventures Inc. (TSXV: PGV) (“Prodigy” or the “Company“) today announced the results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018.

“Prodigy continued its rapid revenue growth in 2018, with the greatest acceleration in the last half of the year.” said Tom Beckerman, Prodigy’s CEO. “Gross profit increases enabled the company to make additional R&D, sales and marketing expenditures to build for the future. Prodigy’s client base continues to expand beyond the banking sector and also into the USA, as the Company reduces revenue concentration and creates new, higher margin opportunities.”
