Mogo recognized in Branham Group's top 15 growth list as FinTech adoption in Canada continues to accelerate
VANCOUVER, May 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Mogo (TSX: GO), Canada's leading digital financial platform, continues to drive the rise of FinTech in the country with its recent placement in the Branham Group's Top 15 Growth Companies in 2015.
Every year, Branham releases an annual list of Canada's top companies with the highest one-year percentage growth. With an 86% growth in revenue in the last year, Mogo was ranked by Branham as the second fastest organic revenue growth technology company on the TSX. It joins Canadian technology company Shopify, which also went public in 2015, on Branham's list.
This recognition comes in the midst of a growing awareness and adoption of FinTech in Canada, as evidenced by Mogo's record revenues and membership size. "2015 was a milestone year. We completed our $50 million IPO, increased our member base by 145%, and grew our revenue by 86%. It's great to be recognized for these achievements," says Greg Feller, Mogo's President and CFO. "This has allowed us to reach a level of scale, including a $50 million revenue run-rate that enables us to continue our significant investment in our platform, products, and member growth for 2016."

It has recently expanded its reach to Asia Pacific markets as well. Exclusively focused on the technology sector, Branham's reports deliver meaningful data globally through focused analyses and thought leadership.
