Rockville, MD, Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: XDSL) (“mPhase” or the “Company”), a technology company developing the mPower EV+ (electric vehicle) charging network and consumer engagement platform, is providing the following operational update from the Board of Directors. As part of a multi-month review of all elements of the Company’s business, the board has decided that along with prior planned departures, mPhase required a full refresh across upper management. As a result, the board has taken actions to name a new CEO and other senior personnel in order to better position the Company for future growth.
In terms of operations, the Company can provide the following update:
- mPhase has continued to function during this transition phase, with essential operational staff retained to maintain progress toward building the mPower EV+ ecosystem;
- Offers are in place and have been accepted for multiple c-suite and senior advisory and operational roles;
- Board members have assumed temporary control positions during this transition period, in order to ensure a smooth changeover and continuity of operation;
- The Company expects to have its first superchargers installed by early September;
- An updated, improved version of the consumer engagement software will be completed in the next several weeks.
In addition to these actions, the Company has been actively applying for new government programs to access funding for EV charging corridor projects; and has bids in place for existing institutional proposals.
Incoming management members were strategically selected to match the Company’s EV+ ecosystem and include experts in sustainability, carbon credits, EV charging, 5G, consumer engagement, and large-scale data applications. The process of onboarding new management is dependent on each individual’s timeline and contingencies for a start date, so announcements are expected to be staggered throughout the month of August, with a goal to have a full team in place by Labor Day. This new strategy to retain industry experts is designed to allow the incoming team to begin immediate operational improvement without the need for an extended learning curve, thereby accelerating the Company’s pace of deployment. The board will provide additional updates as this plan progresses over the next several weeks.
