MIAMI, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Money Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMXI) (Intermex), a leading money remittance services company, today announced that it set an all-time one month high in October, initiating 3.1 million remittances, up 19.3% over October 2019. This performance exceeds the previous remittances record that was just set in August 2020. Contributing to this record performance were monthly all-time high transactions to Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and others.
This positive momentum also led to accelerating market share gains for the third quarter of 2020. In our core markets of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, which was 76% of the total Latin American market as of December 20191, Intermex realized 20.0% market share for the third quarter of 2020, up from 18.7% in the prior year third quarter.
“Delivering this record monthly result and strong quarterly performance is a testament to the International Money Express brand, with our focused, high quality agent network strategy, and our ability to provide high reliability and service quality. Generating this type of performance is even more impressive when you consider the United States, as well as Latin American and African countries are experiencing pandemic related disruptions,” said Chairman, CEO and President, Bob Lisy.
