Stated Jerrick CEO Jeremy Frommer, "We are in a unique and sometimes surreal moment, with our team preparing to uplist JMDA to the NASDAQ Capital Markets in the midst of one of the most divisive and precarious periods in modern history. Still, we are confident that we will continue creating value for all of Jerrick's stakeholders."  "Our second-quarter revenue guidance remains relatively unchanged, with our estimate hovering near $350,000. At the same time, Vocal's subscriber base and potential revenue pipeline are growing rapidly, and we expect this strong momentum to be reflected in our third and fourth-quarter financial results. My latest article on Vocal fleshes out the proposals to be considered and voted on at our upcoming shareholder meeting, as well as provides perspective on Jerrick's final chapter as an OTCQB stock."
