OTI is traded on the OTC stock exchange. The company, operating in 55 countries, has developed ATM readers and payment terminals (unattended payment), self-service kiosks, automatic vending machines and public transportation payment stations. In addition, OTI has developed automatic refueling solutions for gas stations and vehicle fleets. According to its latest financial statements, OTI reported revenues of approximately $10.7 million in the first nine months of 2021, $1.2 million of which are recurring revenues. Due to Covid-19 OTI experienced cash flow issues and, on January 10, 2022, filed a motion to the District Court in Nazareth, Israel, asking to commence proceedings pursuant to the Insolvency and Economic Rehabilitation Law.
