Kaleyra Appoints Gateway to Lead Expanded Investor Relations Program

NEW YORK and VIENNA, Va., Oct. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaleyra, Inc. (NYSE: KLR) (NYSE American: KLR WS) ("Kaleyra" or the "Company"), a rapidly growing cloud communications software provider delivering a secure system of application programming interfaces (APIs) and connectivity solutions in the API/Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) market, has appointed Gateway Investor Relations, a leading strategic financial communications and capital markets advisory firm, to manage its expanded investor relations program initiatives, including providing corporate messaging and other consulting services to the Company.

Gateway has begun working closely with Kaleyra management to develop and deploy a comprehensive outreach and communications program. Activities will continue to include but are not limited to: refining overall company and investment-oriented messaging and corporate positioning, strategic advisory services, and introductions to institutional investors, sell-side analysts and other key influencers in the broader financial community. Gateway will also assist in organizing roadshows and securing invitations to select financial conferences, including its recently held annual Gateway Conference.

"Over the past several quarters, we've taken major steps toward realizing our long-term vision of becoming the trusted global CPaaS platform, and we believe Kaleyra is now at an inflection point in that transformation," said Dario Calogero, Company Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "The CPaaS market, led by worldwide video conferencing adoption and innovation across the A2P messaging market, is poised to more than triple over the next five years. After our recent strategic acquisitions of Bandyer and mGage, respectively, we are positioned to take advantage of these tailwinds and can now offer a complete suite of tools for omnichannel customer engagement.

"Recognizing our company story has evolved over time, we believe the Kaleyra investment thesis requires a reassessment. We've partnered with Gateway because of their extensive experience in assisting emerging growth companies like ours to fully realize their underlying value and to more effectively communicate their stories to broader, relevant audiences. With our recent NYSE uplisting, we'll be looking to take advantage of our elevated platform to expand our institutional shareholder base and access to capital as well. We look forward to partnering closely with the Gateway team over the coming months to deploy a comprehensive investor relations program."
