HY21 report: Douugh (ASX:DOU) share price on watch

Shares in digital wellness company Douugh Ltd (ASX: DOU) traded flat today after the company announced it had signed a share sale agreement with Goodments, which will accelerate the launch of its Wealth Jars offering.

The Douugh share price will be on watch on Monday as the company also released its half-yearly accounts after the market closed today.

Goodments acquisition

In early January, Douugh announced it had signed a binding term sheet to acquire millennial investing fintech Goodments in an all scrip deal. Douugh revealed today that the acquisition has entered the final stages of completion after a binding share sale agreement was signed.

The Goodments acquisition will fast-track the launch of the Douugh Wealth offering and will allow its customers to invest in custom-built portfolios and fractionalised single stocks.

Goodments, which currently operates in Australia, has more than 13,000 customers and manages various ETFs and other fractionalised stocks that trade on US markets.

In Australia, Goodments will be consolidated into the Douugh platform once the financial wellness app is launched.

Commenting on the acquisition, Douugh CEO Andy Taylor said: “We’re excited about the opportunity Goodments presents to accelerate the delivery of our Wealth Jars offering, as well as generating revenue as a standalone product in the Australian market in the short-term, prior to the launch of the Douugh platform.”

Douugh’s half-year results

For the half-year ended 31 December 2020, Douugh reported maiden revenue of $1,290. It also generated $269,855 in other income, primarily comprising COVID-related government payments ($167k) and a government R&D grant ($92k).

Net loss for the half was reported as $5.4 million, which included a large corporate restructuring cost of just over $3 million.

Cash and cash equivalents were $16 million at the end of the period, which was boosted by the issuance of shares to the tune of $18 million.

Net cash used from operating activities was $773,021.

Summary

I think the Goodments acquisition makes sense, as offering a bank account in a low-interest rate environment might struggle to win over customers. Allowing its customers to generate higher returns could be a step in the right direction.
