Hamden, CT – July 1, 2019 – TransAct® Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printing solutions for high-growth markets, today announced its first ever agreement to deploy the Company’s BOHA!™ solution in the Asia-Pacific market as well as with an operator in the casino gaming industry. The new agreement, with a leading Macau casino resort, will include the BOHA! Labeling SaaS-based app and TransAct Enterprise Management System (TEMS) as well as the sale of 100 BOHA! Terminals for deployment in all of the casino resort’s kitchens. The Company will also sell its TransAct Labels specifically designed to work with the thermal printers featured in the BOHA! Terminal.

Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and CEO of TransAct Technologies, said, “In a very short period of time following its introduction in March, our revolutionary BOHA! SaaS-based software and hardware ecosystem is quickly gaining traction across restaurant and foodservice operations of all types and sizes. Given the variety of menu offerings and many different restaurant venues featured in a large-scale casino resort environment, this agreement to deploy BOHA! in all kitchens at a leading Macau casino resort speaks very highly to the flexibility and advantages offered by our industry-unique solution. This agreement also provides evidence of the global market opportunity that exists for BOHA! as well as our ability to leverage our leading market positon in the casino gaming industry as we begin to execute on what we believe are a number of cross-selling opportunities. We have a clear vision for how BOHA! can revolutionize back-of-house automation for restaurant and foodservice operators around the world and with each new agreement this vision is becoming clearer as we execute on opportunities that can generate solid initial hardware sales and deliver growing attractive annual and recurring revenue.”
