The DRIVRZ™ message is resonating and capturing more market share each month.

Kelly Jennings, CEO of PowerBand, commented, “Recent consumer research has shown that a growing number of consumers begin their shopping for automobiles online, and nearly half of them prefer to do it alone without any help from friends, family, or dealership salespeople. Our continued month-over-month growth indicates that our DRIVRZ™ platform messaging is resonating with this type of consumer, as we capture more market share each month. The seamless simplicity of our platform process is providing more online consumers the justification they need to stay connected with DRIVRZ™ to complete their entire transaction online with us.”
The Company continues to experience month-over-month growth. January’s gross sales totalled $6.7mm (CAN). This exceeds the $6.1mm in December 2020, an increase of $600k (CAN). The gross margin for the period remained consistent in the range of 60% to 65%. This is a strong beginning for 2021 and with the recent private placement closed Powerband can now accelerate its’ expansion plans for North America.
