U-Vend, Inc. Posts Record Revenues in First Quarter

First Quarter 2016 Revenues Increase Over 135%

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - U-Vend, Inc. (OTCQB: UVND) (the "Company"), a consumer products and technology company that develops, distributes, and markets next-generation self-serve electronic kiosks and merchandisers with a digital advertising component across North America, today announced the financial results for the Company's first quarter ended March 31, 2016. 

"During the first quarter, historically one of our slower quarters for overall sales, we were able to maintain triple-digit revenue growth associated with our Mini Melts product offering. Sales from our strategically located self-serve kiosks generated Mini Melts product sell-through volumes that exceeded our expectations, and we will continue to focus on acquiring additional high-traffic locations that are consistent with our current Mini Melts business model," stated Raymond Meyers, CEO of U-Vend, Inc. 

"Underlying the current growth of Mini Melts kiosk operations is the tremendous revenue opportunities available to us not only with our current sports-theme product line, Frozen Pond™ Premium Ice Cream, the Official Ice Cream of the NHL, but also with the other global brands and accompanying digital advertising platforms we are currently developing. Given proper capital structure and market conditions, our goal of significant, sustainable growth with a view to profitability is certainly achievable" added Meyers.
