InvestorNewsBreaks – Tingo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: TIO) Inks Tri-Partite Agreement with AFAN Solidifying Role as African Agri-Fintech Leader

Tingo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: TIO), a global fintech and agri-fintech group of companies with operations in Africa, southeast Asia and the Middle East, has entered into a tri-partite agreement with Prime Commodity Exchange (“PCX”) and All Farmers Association of Nigeria (“AFAN”). According to the announcement, the three companies have been given a three-decade lease over AFAN’s existing network of warehouses, which currently number 2,322, along with an agreement to increase the number of warehouses in the network to 80,000 during the next two years. These warehouses are typically used for storing crops and agricultural produce for its farmers. The agreement calls for PCX to install its leading-edge e-Warehouse Receipt System (“eWRS”) in all warehouses, which enables crops and other produce to be commoditized and traded by Tingo from the date of delivery; the agreement also gives Tingo Mobile the right of first refusal to purchase or trade all produce stored in the warehouses. The agreement positions TIO to monetize Nigeria’s crop ecosystem across the country as well as in the global export market. “Today’s agreement further strengthens our already strong relationship with AFAN and solidifies our position as Africa’s leading agri-fintech business,” said Tingo Mobile and Tingo Foods founder Dozy Mmobuosi in the press release. “In addition, we are thrilled to embark on a relationship with PCX, which we consider to be a valuable technology partner, in particular, through the supply of their eWRS system and their Prime Commodity Exchange trading platform. The components of today’s agreement further augment our seed-to-sale model and enhance the financial upliftment and empowerment of our farmers. Furthermore, we believe our improved ability to handle and store inventory will further assist us to achieve our objective of reducing post-harvest losses and crop wastage, while also increasing food production levels and meaningfully improving food security.”
