SelectCore to Launch Iridium Mastercard in United States

07:49 EDT Thursday, May 05, 2011

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG), a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to announce that it has received approval for its Iridium brand from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Mirroring its proven business model in Canada, SelectCore now plans to launch Iridium MasterCard in the United States with an initial roll-out by the third quarter through the Company's top 2,000 existing retail locations.

Unlike Green Dot (NYSE:GDOT) and NetSpend (NASDAQ:NTSP) who successfully focus on large corporate retail distribution, SelectCore is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the untapped independent retail channel by leveraging its proprietary point-of-sale technology and considerable experience.

According to NACS (the National Association of Convenience Stores), there are over 146,000 convenience stores across the United States of which 62.7% are dominated by single-owner / operators. This, in management's opinion, represents a significant opportunity for the Company to continue growing its US retail network.

A great deal of SelectCore's success to date has been a result of its retail partners' ability to connect with consumers of the same ethnic background and language. "Our typical locations are located in areas where the highest concentration of underbanked consumers shop" explained Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore, "This provides SelectCore with direct access to a captive audience."

Iridium will be the first of its kind prepaid card that is issued in both Canada and the United States. Iridium MasterCard is accepted at millions of locations worldwide from retail stores to online, mail, and phone orders. Card features include online account access, text message and email alerts, bill pay, money transfers, ATM cash access and more. No credit check or bank account is required and cards can be reloaded over and over again with up to a $5,000 balance.

According to a recent article on Forbes.com and the most recent FDIC national survey, 25% of households in the United States are unbanked or underbanked, representing over 60 million adults. In 2010, value-loads on open-loop prepaid cards alone totaled $165 billion and is expected to grow to $400 billion by 2013.

"Iridium provides unbanked consumers with financial empowerment in a society that is quickly shifting to electronic forms of payment" commented Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore, "Expansion into the US is a natural progression for us, especially with our already established retail network"

About SelectCore

SelectCore is a leading provider of transaction processing and point-of-sale solutions for the prepaid telecom market and financial services sector. From prepaid mobile top-up to stored-value cards, SelectCore services a market of nearly 80 million underbanked and credit-challenged consumers through its extensive retail distribution network across Canada and the United States. SelectCore is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "SCG" (TSX VENTURE:SCG).

Gross margins after non-operational, one-time year-end adjustments for the quarter increased 160% to 7.0% over the same period 2009 and 46% over the previous quarter 2010. The increased margins are a result of the Company's recent expansion into high-margin prepaid financial services and technology licensing. Management believes that this is a key indicator of the Company's emerging margin trend.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ending December 31, 2010 was $663,509 compared to $576,924 for 2009.

In 2010, SelectCore commenced several business and product development initiatives that will materially benefit the Company in 2011 and beyond as it begins to focus its growth on high-margin prepaid financial services.

-- Processed over 40 million transactions
-- Successful expansion into the US market

-- Launched Iridium MasterCard - first of its kind prepaid card in Canada
-- Completed new technology development for key financial service offerings
including the recent launch of ReCash - Canada's first cash reload
network

Key growth strategies for 2011:
-- Continue to grow the company's legacy business & merchant network
-- Diversify into high-margin prepaid financial services & transaction
processing

-- License its proprietary technology solutions in emerging markets
-- Complete the development and launch of a platform to aggregate and
monetize the vast unbanked consumer market.

Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore stated "We are well positioned to execute on our expansion plans by leveraging the solid foundation we built with our legacy business. Our focus is now on high-margin business segments that will drive profits and shareholder value."

Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore commented "We expect that the growth of Iridium MasterCard, ReCash and new product launches to be announced in 2011, will be key drivers of high-margin profitability".

Finanzierung? Cashlage der aktuellen Expansion geschuldet, gibt in internationalen boards einige vergleiche zb. zu green dot cop, schaut euch die an und bildet euch eine meinung, ist interessant betreff story/potential,in teilen auch ein abgleich mit wirecard interessant als diskussionsgrundlage, keine kaufempfehlung due your own dd!

Ausm stockhouse-board....:

Compare it to Green dot with a 350 PE ratio.


SCG's PE ratio is equivalent to 44 PE ratio at opening! it is atleast should be around 150PE


that means 1.50 Dollars! ATLEAST

Heck SCG said that their operating income will expand...


That will lower their PE ratio(good) and increase the stock growth.


To match Green Dot's PE ratio the SCG stock should be trading around 4.32 dollars!


2 Dollars is a realistic target.. Based on the trading volume. and PE ratio and US expansion and the fact that they are making more profit!

Selectcore Ltd. (CVE:SCG, SCG message board) (PINK:SLXXF) continues the streak of solid gains with the stock price rallying up for the fifth consecutive day.

Stockprice is up 24% early in the morning today, further extending the 30%gain from Friday. Trading volume is 21.67 million, nearly ten times theaverage of 2.34 million. The rally began when the company announced improved financials last week.

Morerecent news also added to the extent of the current rally. Selectcoreannounced on Thursday that the company received approval from the USpatent office to launch their pre-paid Iridium MasterCard.

Theproduct is expected to be available in the US by the third quarter ofthis year. The new card requires no bank account or credit check and canbe re-loaded with an up to $5000 balance. Similar cards are alreadyavailable in Canada.

Despiteactive trading and very positive sentiment on the market, the stockprice might be overheating. The market cap went up to nearly $73 millionwith this morning's push, which is hardly justifiable by thefundamental background.

Even with improvement in financials, thecurrent situation is not good enough to sustain such a rapid pricegrowth for much longer. The current situation doesn't look like ahealthy uptrend and thus the upcoming corrections might be large scaleas well.

This stock has come along way. With good news provided by the company and a very tangible and marketable product, I think this will beat INT! It has gone from $0.19 to $0.57 in just a week. They have a unique product that is very marketable.

Add to the list of accolades is the news of positive profits and enterprise breakouts in the US. It will be interesting to see when the stock breaks the $1 mark!

SelectCore Ltd. /quotes/comstock/11v!e:scg CA:SCG +33.33% , a leading payment and transaction processor for the prepaid industry, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Bryan Kenyon as Senior Advisor to the Company.

Bryan will assist SelectCore with strategic planning and the roll-out of the Company's launch of ReCash - Canada's first retail cash reload network for network branded prepaid cards, similar to Green Dot /quotes/comstock/13*!gdot/quotes/nls/gdot GDOT +0.23% and NetSpend /quotes/comstock/15*!ntsp/quotes/nls/ntsp NTSP -4.34% in the US.

Mr. Kenyon will also provide guidance in the Company's dealings with US-based equity funds looking to invest globally in prepaid financial services companies such as SelectCore.

Mr. Kenyon commented "I am excited to join SelectCore at a time when the company is poised to significantly expand its business into the prepaid financial services market. I see perfect timing with the confluence of the growing under-banked population in Canada and SelectCore's existing network of retailers hosting its point-of-sale technology on Verifone terminals. They are in a very unique position to accelerate the roll-out of ReCash and leverage the Iridium brand."

Kenyon joins SelectCore just weeks after the Company announced the launch of ReCash and its plans to roll-out Iridium MasterCard nation-wide. "These among other key initiatives including expansion plans for new emerging markets, are positioning SelectCore for growth in margins, earnings and shareholder value" said Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore.

press release Feb. 23, 2011, 7:20 p.m. EST

SelectCore Launches ReCash-Canada's First Retail Reload Network
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Feb 23, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- SelectCore Ltd. /quotes/comstock/11v!e:scg CA:SCG 33.33% , a leading payment and transaction processor for the prepaid industry, is pleased to announce the launch of ReCash, Canada's first ubiquitous cash reload network for prepaid stored-value cards.

Similar to Green Dot Corporation in the United States, ReCash offers consumers a convenient and secure way to load cash onto their reloadable prepaid Visa or MasterCard.

For a nominal fee of $4.95, cardholders can purchase a ReCash Voucher with any dollar value up to $500 from a participating retail outlet. The funds can be transferred instantly to the customer's card via text message, online, or toll-free phone number.

For the initial rollout, thousands of existing retailers with SelectCore-owned Verifone terminals will become ReCash 'branches' and 'tellers'. The proprietary technology behind ReCash is integrated with the Company's legacy PrepaidONE platform which provides mobile top-ups for millions of prepaid users. SelectCore also has plans to quickly expand its reload network to include many of Canada's national chains.

Green Dot's success in the United States clearly illustrates the size and potential of the prepaid financial services industry. Last year alone, reloads for prepaid cards in the US surpassed $165 billion and this number is expected to more than double by 2013.

The Canadian market is only in its infancy and is poised for growth as consumers gain awareness and society shifts away from cash towards electronic forms of payment.

"Our strategy is simple:

to create the nation's first and largest retail reload network," says Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore. "The recent success of the Green Dot (GDOT) and NetSpend (NTSP) IPOs has spurred considerable interest in the prepaid industry among investors and retailers alike."

"ReCash will play a key role in providing financial empowerment to millions of credit-challenged consumers who are underserved by Canada's financial institutions," commented Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore.

The launch of ReCash is part of the Company's growth strategy to expand into high-margin financial transaction processing. For more information please visit www.recash.ca .

Zitat von blacksheep1969Ausm stockhouse-board....:

Compare it to Green dot with a 350 PE ratio.


(...)

To match Green Dot's PE ratio the SCG stock should be trading around 4.32 dollars!



Einer Aktie ein Potenzial von ~517% zuzusprechen, weil der Mitbewerber ein KGV von 350 hat, finde ich schon eine ziemlich "interessante"/"innovative(erklärt u.U. auch den eiiiin- oder anderen Bankencrash :laugh: :D )" Herangehensweise. :D ;)


Keine Ahnung von dem Teil, vielleicht ist es ja sogar interessant -aber dieser methodische Ansatz scheint mir doch schon bissle "gewagt".

SELECTCORE TO LAUNCH IRIDIUM MASTERCARD IN UNITED STATES

2011-05-05 08:02 ET - News Release

Mr. Keith McKenzie reports
Selectcore Ltd. has received approval for its Iridium brand from theUnited States Patent and Trademark Office. Mirroring its proven businessmodel in Canada, Selectcore now plans to launch Iridium MasterCard inthe United States with an initial rollout by the third quarter throughthe company's top-2,000 existing retail locations.
Unlike Green Dot and NetSpend, which successfullyfocus on large corporate retail distribution, Selectcore is uniquelypositioned to capitalize on the untapped independent retail channel byleveraging its proprietary point-of-sale technology and considerableexperience.
According to NACS (the National Association of Convenience Stores),there are over 146,000 convenience stores across the United States, ofwhich 62.7 per cent are dominated by single owner/operators. This, inmanagement's opinion, represents a significant opportunity for thecompany to continue growing its U.S. retail network.
A great deal of Selectcore's success to date has been a result of itsretail partners' ability to connect with consumers of the same ethnicbackground and language. "Our typical locations are located in areaswhere the highest concentration of underbanked consumers shop,"explained Keith McKenzie, chief executive officer of Selectcore. "Thisprovides Selectcore with direct access to a captive audience."
Iridium will be the first of its kind prepaid card that is issued inboth Canada and the United States. Iridium MasterCard is accepted atmillions of locations worldwide from retail stores to on-line, mail andphone orders. Card features include on-line account access, textmessage and e-mail alerts, bill pay, money transfers, ABM cash accessand more. No credit check or bank account is required and cards can bereloaded over and over again with up to a $5,000 balance.
According to a recent article on the Forbes website and the most recentFDIC national survey, 25 per cent of households in the United Statesare unbanked or underbanked, representing over 60 million adults. In2010, value-loads on open-loop prepaid cards alone totalled$165-billion and is expected to grow to $400-billion by 2013.
"Iridium provides unbanked consumers with financial empowerment in asociety that is quickly shifting to electronic forms of payment,"commented Ryan Deslippe, president of Selectcore. "Expansion into theU.S. is a natural progression for us, especially with our alreadyestablished retail network."
We seek Safe Harbor.

Financial highlights
Record revenues for the year ending Dec. 31, 2010, totalled $103.2-million,an increase of $19.2-million or 23 per cent compared with $84-millionfor the year ending Dec. 31, 2009.

@sticky: thanks und sehe ich dies auch als "fundament" des enormen anstiegs an. mehr feedback von dir nach kommenden donnerstag?

brauche mehr input/austausch/meinungen um eben besser einzuschätzen, wie es weiter laufen kann, mittel- und längerfristiges potential vor allem.

@popeye82: absolut dacore mit dir, der stockhouse-user hat das potential solide abgeleitet mit verbriefter, wissenschaftlich anerkannter methode....................

ohne spaß; posting war rein als provokation zur allgmeinen meinungs-äußerung/diskussion reingestellt, muss tiefergehend sichten was dahinter steckt; eben auch als entscheid für ne long-position.

green dot org und netspend als vergleichbare firmen mit beachtlicher entwicklung sind ja keine windigen, zum abladen konstruierte pusherbuden.

deshalb: fakten sammeln, bewerten, diskutieren

Insgesamt ist aber eines klar: die Firma ist seit Jahren sehr erfolgreich und ist eine der wachstumsstärksten Firmen in CAN... der Markt ist groß für diese Produkt... und wir sehen zur Zeit eine Kapitalrotation in den Tech- Bereich....und SCG ist ein „Opfer“... (IMO)
Zitat von blacksheep1969ohne spaß; posting war rein als provokation zur allgmeinen meinungs-äußerung/diskussion reingestellt, muss tiefergehend sichten was dahinter steckt; eben auch als entscheid für ne long-position.

Das kommt mir irgendwie bekannt vor. :laugh: ;)


Ich verstehe nicht, was jetzt besonderes an Deren (1st of its kind/proprietary point-of-sale)-MasterCard ist. Da sollte man dann glaube ich ansetzen, die ganze prinzipielle Struktur des Produktes verstehen.


Aber ich mag dieses ganze IT-Zeug nicht wirklich. Die reale Wertschöpfung fehlt mir schlussendlich einfach irgendwo. Die .com-Blase hatte Ihren Grund. Wenn Du damit als Unternehmen Pech hast, programmiert kurz darauf ein genialer 12jähriger(oder ein armer Idiot -weil er 80% seines Lebens, im Wachzustand, vor dem PC verbracht hat??) eine bessere/überlegene Anwendung, verkauft die an die Konkurrenz -&Du kannst Dir selber beim untergehen zuschauen.

"Card features include on-line account access, textmessage and e-mail alerts, bill pay, money transfers, ABM cash accessand more. No credit check or bank account is required and cards can bereloaded over and over again with up to a $5,000 balance."

Das ist alles gaaaaaaanz toll, aber wenn mal ein bisschen rauhere Zeiten anbrechen/Geld nicht sooooo locker wie jetzt sitzt ;) -braucht das keine S..


Da sind mir viele "einfache" Berufe viiiel lieber, da kann ich die Wertschöpfung wenigstens nachvollziehen. Bin da vielleicht ziemlich altmodisch gestrickt.

ich sehe du hast- wie ich- noch Schmerzen wenn du an die "NEW ECONOMY" denkst...geht mir kaum anders...; und wir beide wissen...das alles ich Berich Social Media..mit einem lauten Kracher von der Decke fliegt...nur wann...? Das kann noch lange dauern....:laugh::laugh:
@sticky:

der verlauf ist echt verrückt, saubere historie und reputation/gute story/im branchentrend mit anerkannten vorbildern wie zb. green dot org, netspend etc., gute entwicklung & zielmarkt inkl. perspektiven, heilige kapitalrotaion.

mal schauen wo die reise hingeht. und mit welchem verkehrsmittel was jer nachdem das reiseerlebnis beinträchtigt...oder die freude erhöht.

@popeye1982: gute grundeinstellung, schätze generell was konkretes/
solides mit enstsprechenden wertschöpfungen/gerne firmen die wertschöpfungsketten breit abdecken.

schmerzen von damals hab ich auch/gehabt; vom neuen markt/biotech/new economy etc., von intershop bis cmgi, softbank und anders. aber es gab-zumindest ne kleine-evolution meinerseits.

kenne mich einigermaßen im it-bereich aus (trotzdem keine liebe entstanden...) und denke wenn es richtig rauh wird global mit entsprechender windstärke/ seegang, dann kentern viele produkte und firmen und hier ist dann sicherlich selectcore auch kein must-have-product.
social media & co. ist sicher eine blase wie teils belegbare entwicklungen zb. im bereich immobilien, kunst etc. und dies in manchen teilen der welt.

erstere/social media hat noch reichlich zeit zum wachsen bevor der kracher kommt, außer eben eine negative, komplexe globale gemengenlage entlädt sich vorher zb. via kettenreaktion.


artikel zu selectcore von cantech:

http://www.cantechletter.com/2011/05/investors-cheer-selectcores-mastercard-move/

Notice a lot of commercials for payday loans of late? Does the pawn shop downtown seem to be thriving? What about that rent to own furniture place that promises no payments til 2012?

These businesses are actually part of a growing trend that was unwittingly given a massive shot in the arm by the global downturn of 2008-2009. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation estimates that half the worlds population has little or no access to basic banking services. And the US isn't immune; the FDIC says that one-quarter of all people in that country are "unbanked or underbanked."

Shares of Selectcore (TSXV:SCG) are on the march; rising from $.20 cents on May 2nd to close at $.69 cents today, more than tripling the company's market cap in just five sessions. So why the move? On May 5th, SelectCore received approval for its Iridium brand MasterCard from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Vaughan, Ontario company, which was established in 1999, has its roots are in selling prepaid telecom to an established network of retail convenience and grocery store locations. Selectcore has grown its revenue from $37 million in fiscal 2006 to over $103 million in 2010.

The prepaid wireless market is a good place to be. Telecom industry research firm Atlantic ACM estimates that this sector will grow from $19.3 billion in 2010 to $25.3 billion by 2015. But those numbers are dwarfed by the size of the prepaid credit card market.

An independent research report commissioned by MasterCard estimates that market will surpass $440 billion by 2017, which is more than four times its estimated 2009 value of $120.2 billion

Selectcore's Iridium joins the company's other financial offering; ReCash, a voucher that can be loaded with cash and transferred instantly to another customer’s card via text message, online or by dialing a toll-free number.

Selectcore says the their new financial offerings are helping to improve the thin margins the company has experienced with prepaid wireless. In the fourth quarter of 2010, after non-operational, one-time year-end adjustments, gross profit was $1.76-million, an improvement of 223 per cent over the same period in 2009.

President Ryan Deslippe says that Iridium, ReCash and "new product launches to be announced in 2011, will be key drivers of high-margin profitability."

Leadingthe News Banks and electronic payments firms are scaling back onissuing credit cards, choosing to expand their pre- paid cardsbusinesses instead.
Private lenders such as Axis Bank Ltd, HDFC BankLtd, ICI- CI Bank Ltd and Yes Bank Ltd already offer prepaid cards,which come in a variety of forms, including one-time gift cards, foreigncurrency travel cards, meal cards, corporate incentive cards andgovern- ment disbursement cards.

State-owned banks such as Canara Bank and foreign banks such as Citibank NA plan to enter the business this fiscal.

Electronic payments firms MasterCard Worldwide and Visa ConsolidatedSupport Services (India) Pvt. Ltd say their future growth in India willcome from the prepaid segment.

India's prepaid card market willgrow at 40% every year to $59 billion (`2.70 trillion to- day) in 2017from $4 billion in 2009, said Laura Kelly, group head (global prepaidand healthcare solutions) at Mas- terCard Worldwide, quoting aMasterCard-sponsored Boston Consulting Group report.

About “$34billion will come from corporate travel, incen- tives, meal vouchers andpay- rolls, while $23 billion will come from consumer re- loadable andonline cards.
Only $2 billion will come from public benefit, pen-sion and social security pro- grammes,“ Kelly said. MasterCard's rivalVisa puts the prepaid card opportunity at $93 billion.

“Only 3%of the personal consumption expenditure is done through cards. It's thefastest growing product for us globally and banks have al- ready takenit up, like Axis Bank achieved a $1 billion vol- ume on our travelprepaid card last year,“ said Neel Nilakan- tan, regional director(prepaid products) for Asia Pacific, Cen- tral Europe, Middle East andAfrica at Visa.

HDFC Bank said the growth i of prepaid cards hasbeen rap- id. “We offer all types of l cards--payroll, travel, food andgift--and we have seen 75-80% growth in the last year,“ said NavtejSingh, head (direct payment products) at HDFC Bank.

Anuj Sar- faswat, vice- president (global transaction services) at Citibank, f saidthe t bank will launch a cor- porate incentives card this fiscal. “Itwill be a pre-loaded card with a `50,000 limit...,“ he said.

Canara Bank is close to launching a gift card, followed by a travel cardand a corpo- rate card. “The gift card will be launched very soon with amaximum unreloadable limit of `5,000,“ said Nagendra H.V., manager atthe card division of Canara Bank.

Prepaid cards are gaining inpopularity even as the use of credit cards is declining. The number ofcredit cards in circulation dropped to 18.9 million in July from 22.2mil- lion in the same month last year, according to the Reserve Bank ofIndia.

A.S.V. Krishnan, an analyst at Ambit Capital Pvt. Ltd,said In- dian banks have pulled back on credit cards over fears of de-fault, while prepaid cards are risk-free. “I can spend `40,000 on acredit card and not pay back, but on a prepaid card I cannot spend morethan my balance. Also, banks may earn fee income from vendors on thesecards, which they may not get from...debit cards,“ he said.

Visa and MasterCard are eyeing government payments under programmes such as the rural jobs guarantee scheme.
Thesepayments are typically done through cheque or cash; the e-payment firmsare in talks to have them shifted into prepaid mode.

Saraswat ofCitibank agrees with the strategy. “The 2017 targets look optimistic.But just imagine if sleeping giants like India Post, which has doublethe number of total bank branches, use this system,“ he said.

Hallo !
Dann tippe ich hier auch mal was in die Tastatur ... ;)

Ich habe mich mit SCG nicht weiter beschäftigt und auch keine Aktien gekauft.
Die beiden einzigen Dinge, die ich von dem Wert zu wissen glaube, sind (insofern berechtigt mich im Folgenden ruhig, ich will hier keine Fehl-Infos verbreiten):

a)
Die Idee und nun wohl auch erfolgte Genehmigung aufladbarer Kreditkarten. Also ein ähnliches Modell wie z.B. prepaid-Telefonkarten. Zahlen und Gutschrift bekommen. Quasi kein Kreditausfallrisiko.
Die Idee finde ich prinzipiell gut, Menschen die Zahlung per Karte zu ermöglichen, die kein Bankkonto haben bzw. aus sozialen Gründen keines bekommen können.
Obwohl ich selbst eher ein altmodischer Barzahler bin ...

b)
Der Umsatz scheint ja zu laufen, es gab wohl einen starken Sprung nach oben. Gewinne werden auch erwirtschaftet, aber im Verhältnis zum Umsatz sehr gering. Ein Problem, das wohl angegangen und damit (hoffentlich) gelöst werden soll. Zu dem "wie" fehlen mir jetzt die Infos, aber da gab es in einer news letztens wohl eine Aussage des CEO ...!?

Ob das Ganze ein Erfolg werden kann ?:
Wenn es die FIrma richtig anfaßt, meiner Meinung nach: "Ja".

Ob sich eine Investition jetzt lohnt:
Weiß ich nicht. Ich habe mich nicht informiert, wie das Geschäftsmodell vorangetrieben werden soll, wann und warum die Gewinne steigen sollen, und auch der Chart ist mir jetzt unbekannt. Gebe diese Frage also weiter ... ;)

Und zum Schluß noch etwas, was ich normalerweise nicht tue, aber es paßt hier irgendwie hin:
Die Fa. Alternet Systems (ALYI) - Achtung: OTC-Wert ...! - beschäftigt sich mit mobile-banking. Also wie hier, Kauf eines Guthabens gegen Barzahlung und Gutschrift nicht auf einer Kreditkarte, sondern einer SIM-Karte ;) ,also Handy.
Ist gedacht für die ärmere Bevölkerung dieser Welt (2. + 3. Welt), die eben keinen Zugang hat zu einem Bankkonto.
Dort bin ich übrigens genausowenig investiert wie hier - paßt nur thematisch rein, finde ich. Also bitte vergebt mir ... :cool:

Hallo Praesens,

Was heisst den "Ja"? Da mit "" wahrscheinlich nicht das gleiche Wie ein Ja bedeutet, ist´s vielleicht gar kein Ja mehr?? Heisst das dann Nein???

Versch... aukeltst Du die Leute hier?!?! :laugh: ;) Mann, bist Du durchtrieben!! :laugh: :laugh: Zum Glück hab´ ich meine James Bond-Dechiffrierungs-Kurse vollständig belegt.


Ansonsten, danke für das Posting. Jetzt ist mir zumindest die "Besonderheit" der Karte klar.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.485.289 von Popeye82 am 11.05.11 14:14:33Hallo popeye,

erstens kann ich Deiner Argumentation nicht folgen ...

Was heisst den "Ja"? Da mit "" wahrscheinlich nicht das gleiche Wie ein Ja bedeutet, ist´s vielleicht gar kein Ja mehr??

Erklär´ mir mal den Satz ...

Abgesehen davon bin ich hier nicht investiert. Durchtrieben ... ?
Ich wurde von einem User gebeten mir den Wert einmal anzusehen und meine Meinung kund zu tun. Was ich hiermit, so gut ich konnte, was zugegebenermaßen nicht viel ist, getan habe.

Zweitens, Deine Stellungnahme: Keine Ahnung von dem Teil, vielleicht ist es ja sogar interessant ...
ist natürlich ungemein aussagekräftig.

Drittens, daß Du mit Pseudo-Wissen-vorgaukelnden postings sehr gut arbeiten kannst, kenne ich von Dir. Mal ein Zweifelchen hier anbringen, mal eines da, blabla, nix genaues weiß man nicht ... gut für´s Geltungsbedürfnis. Siehe Deinen damaligen postings im von mir eröffneten Skyline Gold Thread ...

Viertens, scheinst Du irgendein Problem mit mir zu haben. Bitte. Was für mich wiederum kein Problem darstellt ... :laugh:

Jetzt laß uns hier den Thread nicht mit Deinem Kleinkrieg zumüllen, wenn Du mir was zu sagen hast - BM ...
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.485.422 von praesens am 11.05.11 14:34:03

Nein, ist überhaupt nicht so. Sollte nur ein Scherz sein. Scheinbar voll eingeschlagen.


"Viertens, scheinst Du irgendein Problem mit mir zu haben."

Kurioserweise genau andersherum.



Wenn JA das bedeutet, was man allgemeinhin damit assoziiert, stellt sich doch -für mich jedenfalls- die Frage was ein "Ja" dann bedeutet?? :) ;) Muss ja dann eigentlich etwas anderes heissen. Ansonsten hätte "" keine Bedeutung. Ist das so? Darauf hab´ ich meine supergenialen, biiiiisschen spekulativ weitläufigen :laugh: :D , Ableitungen aufgebaut.

Im Endeffekt wollte ich wissen, wie die originäre Bedeutung durch "" nun verändert wird(da Ja/Nein für mich in der Interpretation bisher eines der unvielfältigsten Wörter überhaupt war).

Nachvollziehbar???


Sorry for missleading Aussagen. Haben wir uns jetzt wieder lieb(ich bin allgemein so friedliebend/harmoniebedürftig :D )??

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.486.164 von Popeye82 am 11.05.11 16:11:38... seltsamer Scherz ...!

Die beiden "" sollen bedeuten eine Art Verstärkung, also eine Herausstellung des Ja.
Zitate werden oft zur Verstärkung des eigenen Standpunktes gebraucht. Ich habe mich quasi im Geiste selbst zitiert ... :confused:
Vielleicht mißverständlich - meinetwegen.

Um es noch einmal in Worte zu fassen:
Ich bin also der Meinung, das Geschäftsmodell kann Erfolg haben, ja.
Abhängig davon, wie das Mangement es gebacken bekommt.
Saudummer Spruch von mir, klar, weil das ist immer so.
Nur - bei einer Firma, mit der ich mit etwas befaßt habe, kann ich das Management versuchen zu beurteilen.
DAS ist mir hier nicht möglich, da es mir an Wissen zur Firma fehlt, also beurteile ich es nicht.
Alleine das Geschäftsmodell halte ich für erfolgversprechend, "Ja" ! ;)

Im übrigen werde ich, sollte ich wieder mal nach meiner Meinung zu einer Aktie gefragt werden, von der ich nicht allzuviel weiß, die Antwort besser per BM geben.
Meine Erkenntnisse hier helfen nämlich niemand wirklich weiter. :(

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.503.555 von sticky am 14.05.11 18:36:17WHO ARE THE UNBANKED?

InNorth America a new term has become popular with today's consumers andthe average working family its called The Unbanked. Simply put this termis used to describe a growing number of people that do not have accessor prefer not to use banks. Several issues have come up that have pushedthis number higher like the growing worries over how safe banks are andthe growing list of fees and qualification to have a bank accountespecially in the USA.

To recoup some of their losses,Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citibank and JPMorgan Chase may stopoffering free basic checking accounts. That will push more people intothe ranks of the unbanked.

Mortgagelending for America’s 11m illegal immigrants is a market that has goneinto reverse. Most of these people were in the cash economy until1997, when the Internal Revenue Service began to issue IndividualTaxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) so everyone could pay taxes.Banks were quick to see a market based on accepting ITINs rather thansocial-security numbers as identification for mortgage loans. By 2004they had lent roughly $2 billion in this way. But since the downturnmost banks have backed off these portfolios, thanks partly to overheatedpolitical rhetoric on immigration.

There is nowa growing trend to service these unbanked with numbers reported as highas 25% in the US alone. The fees for service for these account is verylucrative and my featured company Selectcore is now in expansion mode.

SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG),a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the creditchallenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to announce that ithas received approval for its Iridium brand from the United StatesPatent and Trademark Office.

Mirroring itsproven business model in Canada, SelectCore now plans to launch IridiumMasterCard in the United States with an initial roll-out by the thirdquarter through the Company's top 2,000 existing retail locations.

UnlikeGreen Dot (NYSE:GDOT) and NetSpend (NASDAQ:NTSP) who successfullyfocus on large corporate retail distribution, SelectCore is uniquelypositioned to capitalize on the untapped independent retail channel byleveraging its proprietary point-of-sale technology and considerableexperience.

According to NACS (the National Association ofConvenience Stores), there are over 146,000 convenience stores acrossthe United States of which 62.7% are dominated by single-owner /operators. This, in management's opinion, represents a significantopportunity for the Company to continue growing its US retail network.

Agreat deal of SelectCore's success to date has been a result of itsretail partners' ability to connect with consumers of the same ethnicbackground and language. "Our typical locations are located in areaswhere the highest concentration of underbanked consumers shop"explained Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore, "This provides SelectCorewith direct access to a captive audience."

Iridium will be thefirst of its kind prepaid card that is issued in both Canada and theUnited States. Iridium MasterCard is accepted at millions of locationsworldwide from retail stores to online, mail, and phone orders. Cardfeatures include online account access, text message and email alerts,bill pay, money transfers, ATM cash access and more. No credit check orbank account is required and cards can be reloaded over and over againwith up to a $5,000 balance.

According to a recent article onForbes.com and the most recent FDIC national survey, 25% of householdsin the United States are unbanked or underbanked, representing over 60million adults. In 2010, value-loads on open-loop prepaid cards alonetotaled $165 billion and is expected to grow to $400 billion by 2013.

"Iridiumprovides unbanked consumers with financial empowerment in a societythat is quickly shifting to electronic forms of payment" commented RyanDeslippe, President of SelectCore, "Expansion into the US is a naturalprogression for us, especially with our already established retailnetwork"

Big Banks Undecided on PrePaid Strategy
February 23rd, 2011

Big banks have already said that they intend to enter the prepaid card market, but their success or failure is far from certain and could hinge on how they frame the purpose of the entire space.

Banks are no longer going to offer free checking willy nilly. You will have to have a hefty deposit account, or use other services that generate enough revenue to justify the costs to the bank. It is the same with branches. Banks are closing branches in low-income neighborhoods.

The writing is on the wall. A relationship with a local full-service retail bank branch is no longer an essential element for every American household. In the future, it may be something that we think about quite differently. It may be something that becomes a distinguishing factor between the middle class and everyone a few rungs below them.

Wells Fargo says that it will have a prepaid card in the near future. BB&T has one already.

Consider the country’s largest retail bank: Bank of America has one card, designed to serve business owners, that allows employees to receive their payroll checks. Bank of America offers another (the “Visa Commercial Prepaid“) that is not reloadable. There is another for state government payments, one specifically marketed to serve the needs of teachers that want to buy school supplies, and then one for gifts and rewards. Bank of America has “Employee of the Month” covered.

Some executives appear to be uncertain about how these cards will work within the broader suite of products offered at their bank. Will the card cannibalize customers away from the mainstream bank. Is that a problem? For banks that worry about customer retention, the prepaid card becomes a dumping spot for problem accounts. Prepaid is a consolation prize, offered to consumers that couldn’t handle a regular account.

That strategy virtually guarantees that banks will never take their prepaid cards to scale. It creates a money-losing division. Banks already hate unprofitable checking accounts. Well, low-volume prepaid is going to be bad news, all over again.

Prepaid relies on a high-volume, low-cost approach. It isn’t about high-cost, low-volume marketing: special brochures in branches, distribution of DVDs through housing counselors, and other second-best plans. Why would a non-banked person walk into a bank to get a debit card? It is sort of like trying to catch fish in a stock yard.

Prepaid cards won’t cannibalize consumers because there is such a divergence in how consumers use the banking system. Wells wants to develop four to seven relationships with each customer. Green Dot is making money by offering one basic service to several million households. The profit margin is never going to be that high: Green Dot makes less than $100 on each card, per year. How can a bank maintain a card program with 1,500 accounts? They won’t.

BB&T has created a good a general purpose reloadable card, but its ability to find a customer base is far from certain. I say that because being first to market should mean that they can seize an advantage. Yet I wonder if they will take that to scale.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.516.402 von Gadal am 17.05.11 19:49:48SelectCore Releases Q1 Key Performance Indicators for Iridium MasterCard (ccnm)
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG)(PINK SHEETS:SLXXF), a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to release its key performance indicators for Iridium MasterCard for the first quarter of 2011.
New cardholders up an average of 16% month over month with a total increase of 61% over the previous quarter.
Total value loads up an average of 11% month over month with a total increase of 36% over the previous quarter.

New card sales per retail location up an average of 14% month over month
Average dollar value per initial load is $89 while the average reload is $143
The preliminary launch of Iridium MasterCard in SelectCore's existing retail channel is proving the Company's business model to be successful. These performance metrics clearly demonstrate that Iridium is gaining traction in the marketplace and cardholders are embracing the value of having a prepaid card.
Iridium MasterCard is the first of its kind, reloadable prepaid card offered in Canada. Everyone qualifies – no bank account, credit check or security deposit required, and the card is accepted at over 28.5 million locations and over 1 million ATMs worldwide. As a safe and convenient alternative to cash, and low-cost alternative to a traditional checking account, the Iridium card offers significant benefits for the underbanked consumer including:
Instant access to funds
Reloadable over & over
No interest charges
Ability to shop online
SMS & email alerts
Direct payroll deposit
Spending control
Card-to-card money transfers
Bill payments
Online account access
and more
"It's all about converting cash to electronic currency" said Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore. "Consumer awareness and adoption, combined with the global paradigm shift to electronic forms of payment is what's driving the tremendous growth in our industry."
The global prepaid market is expected to expand at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22% to an estimated $840 billion by 2017. North America will lead that expansion, growing to $442 billion by 2017, holding more than twice the market size of any other region.
The Company also recently announced its plans to expand Iridium into the US market where consumer awareness for prepaid financial services is much further ahead than Canada. Unlike Green Dot (NYSE:GDOT) and NetSpend (NASDAQ:NTSP) however, who successfully focus on large retail distribution, SelectCore is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the untapped independent retail channel by leveraging its proprietary point-of-sale technology platform.

"The 2 billion dollar IPO you never heard of, GreenDot".
The prepaid credit card space is a vast market.
The percentage of nonbanked and underbanked individuals is growingexponentially and consequently the prepaid credit card market enjoyscorresponding growth.
SCG IS IN THE RIGHT SPACE AT THE RIGHT TIME.
Notwithstanding the stock's gain in share price thus far this year, itstill remains severely undervalued in comparison to it's peer companies.
Look at GreenDot and NetSpend and you'll see exactly where I'm coming from in my thought process.
IMO, any investor with a 6-12 month time horizon will experience a great ROI with SCG.


IMHO we could be back to on our way to $1.00 by month end ?

The above is just my opinion, Govern yourself accordingly !

All of those financials your reading about basically have nothing to do with the MC (Mastercard). Their 2010 sales are from nearly 100% their prepaid wireless in Canada. Very low margins and such is the low earnings.

Now that their nationwide system is in place, they have partnered with MC to create Iridium and using their now fully owned network they can link reloads on both the MC and the veriphone services. Very smart, well thought out, everything is falling into place.

It comes down to Q1 report to see how effrective the higher margin MC will be, but everyone knows it will be an improvement.

The beauty is the entry into the US market with the card, and the limited advertising and startup costs associated with this entry.

SelectCore Announces New Patent-Pending Technology for ReCash Platform
May 27, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG)(PINK SHEETS:SLXXF), a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to announce its industry-first, patent-pending technology that opens up the Company's ability to extend its ReCash network to virtually any merchant with a point-of-sale payment terminal.

Similar to Green Dot (NYSE:GDOT) in the US, ReCash is Canada's first ubiquitous retail cash reload network that offers consumers a convenient and secure way to load cash onto their store-valued accounts such as a prepaid Visa or MasterCard card. Simply put, ReCash is a means of converting cash to electronic forms of payment in real-time.

This new, patent-pending technology will allow virtually any merchant nation-wide to become a ReCash agent with no new hardware, integration or capital investment required. Transactions can be processed using existing point-of-sale devices over a traditional debit payment network. Merchants will also benefit from increased foot-traffic and a new, high-margin revenue stream.

"ReCash will become the single-largest retail network of 'branches-and-tellers' for the unbanked consumer market," said Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore.

Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore further commented "With the significant influx of prepaid card users across North America, the shift to a cashless society is becoming more and more evident. Consumers want to shop online, pay for gas at the pump, book travel, and soon 'fund their mobile wallets'."

The Company also expects that it will be able to monetize this proprietary technology and intellectual property through both organic expansion and licensing arrangements globally.

SelectCore Announces Industry-Changing Mobile Remittance Solution
Jun. 9, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SCG)(PINK SHEETS:SLXXF), a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to announce its revolutionary Free and Instant Money Transfer solution.

After considerable development, testing and trials, the Company is now preparing to go to market with its technology by securing international merchant partnerships and deploying the service domestically throughout thousands of its existing retail locations.

Consumers across North America will be able to send free and instant money transfers to their friends and family abroad. The remittance is delivered instantly to the recipient's mobile device and funds are available for immediate use at their local merchant.

Unlike traditional money transfer services where high fees are incurred by the sender and receiver, SelectCore's revenue model is based on transaction fees and margin earned from merchant redemptions, similar to that of interchange with the major payment networks. International merchants can easily interconnect to the platform through their existing point of sale hardware.

Management believes that SelectCore is once again well positioned with its ability to leverage the Company's existing retail channel that provides direct access to millions of immigrants and ethnic consumers who are the target audience for this type of service.

"The development of this technology is keeping inline with the Company's global strategy of converting cash to electronic forms of payment while aggregating millions of under-banked consumers" commented Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore.

"SelectCore is poised to take part in the evolving mobile remittance industry", said Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore. "Our technology that delivers a free and instant money transfer is truly a game changer".

Thanks für die Infos; wie sieht es in diesem Bereich mit Konkurrenz aus, z. b. die google-entwicklung? Muss hierzu mal infos sichten; generell wird die sache immer runder.....

Artikel zum Thema:

Honestly, I don't even think I understand the ramifications of how big this could be here. That's why I put this blog out to perhaps get some discussion going. I will pose this question at the SCG AGM June 30 - always nice to know where they plan to take their technology. I understand that the brains behind SCG's technology are masterful at their craft and innovators.

Now if I connect all the dots correctly, SCG's ReCash technology is a vehicle by which one would use to securely transmit money electronically via smart phones or computers to their reloadable card. My question will be for them to elaborate on where they want to take this technology.

This is BIG imo folks - SCG's technology is part of an over all movement that the general public is not fully aware of yet regarding electronic cash. So SCG not only has large revenue streams but they have the technology that will allow them to join the coming of Mobile Wallets.

Keith McKenzie, CEO of SCG commented “With the significant influx of prepaid card users across North America, the shift to a cashless society is becoming more and more evident. Consumers want to shop online, pay for gas at the pump, book travel, and soon ‘fund their mobile wallets’.”

Through the ReCash platform, the funds can be transferred instantly to the customer’s card via text message, online, or toll-free phone number.

Here's a news release regarding mobile wallets from Ingenico. They are partnering up with Google to develop their mobile wallet...

SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SCG)(PINK SHEETS: SLXXF), a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and unbanked consumer market is pleased to report its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

Financial highlights compared to the same period 2010: -- Revenues increased 1.3% to $21 million -- Gross Profit increased 107% to $2.25 million -- Gross Margins increased 104% to 10.7% -- Adjusted EBITDA increased 11,500% to $1.1 million

Revenues of $20,987,393 for the first quarter 2011 represented an increase of 1.3% as compared to $20,726,395 in the same period 2010. Gross profit of $2,247,092 for the first quarter 2011 represented an increase of 107% as compared to $1,086,575 in the same period 2010. Gross margins of 10.7% for the first quarter 2011 represented an increase of 104% from 5.2% in the same period 2010. Net profit for the first quarter 2011 was $343,290 or $0.0032 per share compared to a net loss of $737,450 in the same period 2010. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2011 was $1,111,106, an increase of 11,500% as compared to $9,562 in the same period 2010.

As previously announced, the Company's growth strategy is now focused on high-margin prepaid financial services and the monetization of its technology platforms through licensing arrangements. The first quarter financial improvements reflect the initial results of this strategy with the Company having secured a licensing deal for its prepaid financial services platform. Incremental costs in the first quarter 2011 were related to the closing of new debt financing facilities, resources requirements for IT development and the Company's expansion into the US market.

Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore commented "We have invested considerable resources with technology development and our entrance into the prepaid financial services industry in the past two years and we are now starting to realize a return on our investment that we expect will continue to drive profitability and long-term shareholder value."

The Company's Financial Statements and Management Discussion and Analysis for the three months ending March 31, 2011 are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Bin für mittel-und längerfristig noch sehr entspannt für Selectcore; aktueller Kursrückgang ist hard stuff und dem gesamten marktumfeld udn den freundlichen shortern geschuldet.

sehe die nachfolgend beschriebene situation ähnlich und gibt parallelen zu INT;: meinungen von euch?

The Bad:
-this is now a trader stock
-probably won't get back to appropriate levels until fall
-greediness by opportunisitic traders feeds fear of the inexperienced
-if the inexperienced continue to sell this pattern will continue

The Good:
-Selectcore is a company with a HUGE future
-Selectcore is run by competent and forward thinking management, with an eye to their shareholders
-Selectcore is already PROFITABLE
-when trading games cease, this stock price flies, seen several times in the past
-with volume and buying pressure, the traders are overmatched and overwhelmed and drop their fake walls quick
-downside risk is very minimal, this stock price push down is artifical and not representative of true value

The Hopeful:
-We receive some great news soon
-Q2 financials are as expected and market reacts with buying pressure
-Opportunistic traders decide this play has been 'played' and they move on
-Management begin to buy up and further restrict the float
-High volume continues

Prepaidis the fastest growing payment mechanism worldwide, with the UAE aloneexpected to exceed US $18 billion from prepaid cards over the next fiveyears, according to James Ratcliff, Editor of Cards International andspokesperson for Prepaid Summit Middle East 2011, organised by VRLFinancial News in Dubai, UAE.

He said that a similar prepaid growth rate is also predicted in Saudi Arabia.

“Theregion’s prepaid opportunities will be fuelled by various factorsincluding the high standard of living, the skilled expatriate populationand the vast number of unbanked migrant workers,” he said.


There was active discussion at the Prepaid Middle East round table event
Thelatest figures place the UAE’s per capita income at $43,000 per person(2008), with expatriates making up 85% of the skilled workforce in theEmirates and 40% in Saudi. Meanwhile, migrant workers comprise 39% ofthe UAE’s labour force, and 29% in the Kingdom (of Saudi Arabia).Ratcliff said that these factors are behind the region’s prepaidspending growth.

Accordingto a recent report from the key sponsor of the summit, Visa, growth inprepaid and debit transactions continues accounting for more than halfof Visa’s business.

“Over the next five years, transactions by prepaid mechanisms will account for almost 60% of purchases globally,” said Ratcliff.

“Withcredit card expenditure down between 7% -10% this year banks need tolook for new products for existing customers, as well as for newcustomers.

“Prepaidcan deliver both. It can allow a range of applications both forbusinesses and consumers – either as part of a broad card strategy, oras a stand-alone product. Either way prepaid cards provide banks withthe unparalleled opportunity to create new revenue and profit streams.”

Speakingto SME Advisor, Samer Soliman, Vice President, Network International,said that the SME sector has responded very well to the introduction ofprepaid cards. “What we are seeing is the growing need to maintaincustomer loyalty and satisfaction of consumers. The retail arm of theSME sector has been very proactive in adopting this prepaid scheme andhave all requested that these cards be made available for customers.Loyalty schemes through the prepaid cards is certainly one way ofattracting not only new business but maintaining regular business forthe owners of SME’s, he said.”

“Upto 60% of payments globally will be driven by prepaid by 2015. Thepossibilities where prepaid can be introduced are vast and at the momentthere are even incentives being developed whereby the prepaid cardsystem can be used on your mobile phone to purchase something likecoffee,” said Soliman.

GupsJatla, E-Commerce and Prepaid Manager, Visa, Middle East, told SMEAdvisor that the introduction of prepaid would cut down time and reducethe paperwork in the system. “Cards can be issued for all future salarypayments, expense costs for business travel and even allowance or pocketmoney for your child can be transferred electronically and updatedimmediately to one of these cards. For today’s society, especially wherethe youth are concerned, its all about speed and convenience andprepaid addresses both these needs.

“SMEscan keep bank costs low when it comes to bankroll when transferringtheir employee’s wages onto a prepaid card. So instead of cheques orwaiting on bank transfers, employees of SMEs can have their funds madeavailable immediately and with the standard visa access. These prepaidcards will look and feel just like a Visa electron credit card,” hesaid.

The PrepaidSummit Middle East 2011 on March 22 and 23 brings together Middle Eastand international experts and successful case studies in prepaid. Thesummit highlight will be exclusive research on the markets and potentialopportunities by more than 35 speakers.

The2011 Summit will focus on emerging opportunities in region such asprepaid cards by Sharia and the perspective of the broader Asia Pacific,including the Indian subcontinent.
konkrete meinungen dazu, still geworden hier...?

I have been following this company for some time now and i am taken back by the level of manipulation that runs wild in this stock market. the degree in which a hedge company or investment firm can short and destroy a companies share price is beyond acceptable. Fundamentally this company is strong and growing at a very fast pace. This 50% retraction in share price is not warrented by any means. yes there were very high expectations for the Q1 financials and maybe they did not live up to all the hype but it is disgusting to what level these firms will short a stock while innocent retailers face the loss. long term shareholders are here for the ups and downs. its the inexperienced retailers that get burned and panic sell into fear created by the shorters are there bash tactics on these boards. the shorts in time will cover and move on to the next trend stock with volume they can work and destroy.

Someone mentioned a short trap potential and that has its own merits also. Battles may be looming in the shadows against these shorts.

Für mich ist SCG eines der wenigen Langzeitinvestments, weil

1.dies eine wachstumsstarke Company ist.
2.die Profitmargen stetig steigen werden.
3.das Managment hervorragend besetzt ist.
4.die Company auch bei schlechtem Marktumfeld Gewinne
generieren wird.
5.die Zeit kommen wird, und SCG ein Übernahmekandidat werden wird.
6.und jede Menge Phantasie mitspielt- man möge sich nur vorstellen, die

Derzeit ist die Aktie halt ein Spielball für Daytrayder und Shorties.

Hier ist Geduld gefragt und nur wer die aufbringt, wird erfolgreich sein, und wer glaubt,
daß der Aktien- und Devisenmarkt crashen wird, sollte Aktien erst gar nicht anfassen.


Videmibus, werde mich nächstes Jahr bei wesentlich höheren Kursen wieder melden.

Industry survey reveals growing prepaid card trend
13 June 2011 15:29:51


Many people could benefit from using a prepaid card. Consumer demand for prepaid cards is likely to grow in the near future, according to a new survey by FirstSource Solutions. The research found that people working in the industry have witnessed increased interest in the payment method and expect wider adoption in the coming year. Here, CompareandSave.com takes a look at the survey findings and at some of the groups of people who could benefit from using a prepaid card.

Experts expect 'explosive' growth in market

Members of the payment industry are anticipating a major increase in the prepaid credit cards market, according to Firstsource Solutions' latest survey. The business process outsourcing service provider surveyed 100 banking and credit card industry professionals at the recent Card Forum & Expo in Miami.

The findings show that half of respondents expect consumers to move away from traditional credit cards and cash in the coming year and increase their use of prepaid cards. Nearly three in 10 professionals also believe consumers will deposit greater amounts of money into their prepaid credit card accounts.

Tim Smith, senior vice-president of banking, financial services & insurance at Firstsource, said: "We're seeing a growing interest in prepaid cards in consumer segments that weren't originally drawn to using such a form of payment. Our findings support recent research about the upward trend in the prepaid market."

Prepaid cards suitable for range of consumers

Many respondents also highlighted the opportunities for prepaid card providers to market their products to different consumer groups. A wide range of people could benefit from using a prepaid card, with holidaymakers representing one of the most targeted groups. This is because foreign currency can be loaded on to a prepaid travel card, often at an attractive exchange rate, and the card can then be used to make purchases and withdraw money from overseas ATMs without incurring many of the fees associated with traditional credit and debit cards.

Prepaid cards can also be useful for parents sending their kids on school trips. Many parents do not like children to carry large amounts of cash, but a prepaid card can be loaded with spending money and cancelled if lost or stolen. Any funds left on the card can then be reclaimed from the card provider. In addition, the cards can be used to keep track of children's spending, as parents can bring up a list of recent transactions when they log into their account online.

It is hard to imagine a group of consumers that would not benefit from using a prepaid card, but one more important target for card providers is people with bad or non-existent credit histories. While these individuals may not be eligible for mainstream credit cards, a prepaid card could help them to budget more effectively and avoid building up debts.

Habe meinen Laptop mitgenommen, da ich auch dick in CUU investiert bin, hoffe, daß da bald ne Buyout-Meldung über den Ticker kommt....


Habs nicht mitverfolgt, gestern könnten daß aber die Warrants gewesen sein, die das Volumen generiert haben.Sehr wahrscheinlich ist der Kursrutsch herbeigeführt worden, damit die "zu exerzieren" waren.

Ich bin überzeugt, daß wir nicht recht lange bei 30 Cent bleiben werden, es sind noch einige News bis Ende August zu verlautbaren, die dem Kurs auf die Beine helfen werden, insbesondere "prelaminary dates" betreffend steigender Kundenzahl,Geschäft in US,...


Mfg Ventrikel, viel Spaß in Asien!!
hallo,

SelectCore reports 61% growth in new Iridium MasterCard cardholders

SelectCore (CVE:SCG) reported Thursday that the launch of its prepaid credit card product, Iridium MasterCard, has been successful, showing a 61% sequential increase in new cardholders in the first quarter.

The company said much of this increase can be attributed to the consumer adoption of electronic payment.
"It's all about converting cash to electronic currency," CEO Keith McKenzie said.

During the first quarter, SelectCore also posted a 36% increase in total value load-ups over the previous quarter. The company also said that new card sales per retail location were up an average of 14% month-over-month.

The Canadian company, whose prepaid telecommunications and financial products are geared toward the credit challenged and the unbanked consumer, plans to expand its Iridium MasterCard to the U.S. market in the third quarter.

The prepaid card, which requires no credit check or bank account and can be re-loaded repeatedly with up to a $5,000 balance, is currently available in Canada.

The Iridium MasterCard is uniquely positioned to break into the American markets, namely for its proprietary point-of-sale technology, allowing it to capitlalize on independent retail channels, a market that other prepaid cards tend to neglect.

The global prepaid market is expected to expand to $840 billion by 2017, with North American markets growing to an estimated $442 billion.

"Consumer awareness and adoption, combined with the global paradigm shift to electronic forms of payment is what's driving the tremendous growth in our industry," McKenzie added.
Hei Black!


Wünsche schönen Asienurlaub!


Trotzdem wir bereits knapp an den 20 Canadacents gekratzt haben, bin ich dennoch
nach wie vor von SGC überzeugt, wie bereits mehrfach erwähnt, ist hier nichts mit kurzen Trades zu
holen, für mich bleibts ein Long-Investment.Entsprechend habe ich auch meine Position noch ein bißchen aufgestockt.

SCG ist durchfinanziert, wir warten auf weitere Contracts und Zahlen betreffend USA und mittlerem Osten, gegen Ende August wirds spannend und richtungsweisend.

Bin unbeeindruckt betreffend der Schuldenkrise in den USA, spätestens am Dienstag wird ne
akzeptierte Lösung am Tisch liegen, der Markt wird recovern, möglicherweise ohne Ratingabstufung.
nebst den neuesten Entwicklungen betreffend SELECTCORE sind diese blutroten Tage an den Börsen
sehr belastend für jeden, der ein Portfolio hat, daß auf LONG ausgerichtet ist.
Da spielen Unternehmensdaten und positive Entwicklungen (wenn überhaupt glaubhaft der heutige
Arbeitsmarktbericht) keinerlei Rolle.

Ich bin vor allem in kanadischen Aktien investiert, und zwar LONG, habe noch nie geshortet, aus Prinzip nicht.Aber diese extreme Abhängigkeit betreffend Wall Street ist suspekt.Ganz klar für mich scheint, daß
hier wieder die großen amerikanischen Investmentbanken ihre finger im Spiel haben, und damit auch die
USA-Regierung selbst.

Der Dollar fällt, relativ steigt der kanadische Dollar- ein Zeichen für eine Entkoppelung vom amerikanischen Markt?

Vorläufig wohl nicht, aber mit unseren amerikanischen Freunden gehts bergab.
Churchill vor Jahrzehnten:"Was die Amerikaner auch falsch machen, zuletzt machen sie immer das Richtige" gilt meiner meinungnach nicht mehr.

Wahrscheinlichist es wirklich bald an der Zeit- 1.eine Währungsreform durchzusetzen
2.Gemüse und Obst selbst anzubauen

SelectCore Secures New Long-Term Financing & Equity CapitalSELECTCORE LTD SCG 7/27/2011 9:24:00 AMTORONTO, ONTARIO, Jul 27, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

SelectCore Ltd. (the "Corporation" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SCG), a prepaid telecom and financial services transaction processor for the under-banked consumer market is pleased to announce that it has secured new long-term debt and equity to improve the Company's balance sheet and fund its working capital and growth initiatives.

The Corporation has entered into a Letter of Intent with its senior lender, Windsor Bancorp Limited Partnership ("Windsor"), whereby Windsor has agreed to provide the Company with a new long-term Convertible Debt Facility. Pursuant to the terms of the Letter of Intent, Windsor will advance a minimum of $3 million with the option of increasing the amount to $5 million upon the Corporation meeting certain financial covenants. The term of the new facility will be 24 months with the option of extending for two additional one-year terms. The credit facility will bear an interest rate equal to the prime rate charged by the Royal Bank of Canada plus 9% per annum. Under the terms of the new facility, Windsor shall have the option of converting a portion or the entire principal amount into common shares in the capital of the Corporation at a conversion price of $0.35. The Company however, has the option to pay down the principle balance to $3 million by the fifth month and $2 million by the eighteenth month thereby reducing the potential conversion amount. The closing of this facility is subject to regulatory approval and the execution of the loan agreements.

Further to the recently announced proposed Private Placement, the Company plans to close on the first tranche of the financing on or about the end of this month, thereby increasing the amount of equity raised over and above the proceeds from the exercise of options and warrants. The non-brokered private placement has been priced at $0.30 per unit with each unit being comprised of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of 24 months.

SelectCore Secures Trademark and Provides Update for ReCash(R)SELECTCORE LTD SCG 8/24/2011 9:22:04 AMTORONTO, ONTARIO, Aug 24, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

SelectCore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SCG) a provider of prepaid telecom and financial solutions for the credit challenged and under-banked consumer market, is pleased to announce that it has received its trademark registration for ReCash(R) from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.

Similar to Green Dot (NYSE: GDOT) in the United States, ReCash(R) will be Canada's first ubiquitous retail cash reload network that offers consumers a convenient and secure way to load cash onto any prepaid Visa, MasterCard or a wide range of other stored-value cards and accounts.

The ReCash(R) platform facilitates the conversion of cash into electronic forms of payment in real-time. For a nominal service fee of up to $4.95, customers can purchase a ReCash(R) voucher in any dollar value up to $500 from any participating merchant. The funds are instantly transferred to the customer's prepaid card or account and available for immediate use.

Further to the Company's press release on May 27, 2011, SelectCore remains focused on completing the development of its patent-pending technology for ReCash(R) with the objective of rolling out the platform to thousands of retail locations across Canada in addition to exploring licensing opportunities in other markets.

SelectCore's Senior Advisor, Bryan Kenyon, former Director of Financial Planning and Analysis for Green Dot Corporation (NYSE: GDOT), continues to assist the Company with its development and launch initiatives.

"We believe that upon successful execution, SelectCore will become Canada's frontrunner in the emerging business of converting consumer's cash into electronic forms of payment" said Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore. "Last year alone the US market for prepaid reloads surpassed $165 billion and is expected to more than double by 2013."

"ReCash(R) can provide millions of under-banked consumers with financial empowerment to be included in what's increasingly becoming a cashless society," commented Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore.

The launch of ReCash(R) is part of SelectCore's strategic growth strategy of leveraging its well-established legacy business to transition the Company into becoming a high-margin financial transaction processor for the under-banked consumer market.

Dealtalk: Undervalued, NetSpend may be scooped up
23 Aug 2011 - Reuters

Dealtalk: Undervalued, NetSpend may be scooped upBy Jochelle Mendonca and Aditi Sharma

BANGALORE (Reuters) - Less than a year since it went public, NetSpend Holdings Inc's depressed stock price and cut-throat competition in the pre-paid debit card market make it a potential takeout target.

Pre-paid cards -- targeted at low income and under-banked customers -- grew significantly during the economic downturn, but the card market is now over-crowded and has attracted regulatory scrutiny, priming the sector for consolidation.

Credit card giant American Express and payment processor MasterCard have both entered the pre-paid debit card space, and other financial companies are taking a close look, hoping to tap a broad source of fee-income, but making competition tougher.

Shares in NetSpend, which has lost some distribution partners and seen slower take-up of its cards, have spent most of the past six months below its $204 million October IPO price of $11. The stock price this month dipped below $4 to a life-low.

"NetSpend could be a strategic fit for other card companies, a direct competitor, or even private equity," said Sterne Agee analyst Greg Smith.

The likeliest buyer is Green Dot Corp, NetSpend's main rival in a U.S. pre-paid debit card market that Mercator Advisory Group forecasts will next year have funds of $118.5 billion -- more than treble the 2010 total.

MasterCard recently forecast pre-paid volumes would top $840 billion by 2017.

"Green Dot would be a usual suspect here. I don't see any reason why these companies should butt heads instead of getting together," said Darren Chervitz, director of research at Jacob Asset Management, and a former holder of NetSpend stock.

While Green Dot has been insulated from some of the fierce competition due to its relationship with Wal-Mart -- which brings in nearly two-thirds of its revenue -- the same tie-up also makes it highly dependent on a single customer.

"You have to wonder if that's a long-term relationship you really want to tie your horse to because, clearly, Walmart has the leverage in that relationship," Chervitz said.

NetSpend has had some challenges retaining partners, but it does have a more diverse client base. Its largest client, ACE Cash Express, accounted for just a third of its 2010 revenue of $275 million.

"Green Dot is in a position to do a very accretive acquisition given where NetSpend is right now," said Wedbush analyst Gil Luria said, noting the market is pricing in a possible buy-out of NetSpend.

"The stock has been volatile and, on the days it's up, it's my view that people bid it up because they feel the company is going to get sold," Luria said.

NetSpend may also attract interest from Capital One, which tried to buy the company four years ago, Luria said.

WHAT PREMIUM?

NetSpend's cheap stock valuation -- it trades at 12 times forecast 2012 earnings, compared with 20 times for Green Dot -- is likely to attract buyers, but the company may struggle to get what it thinks is the right price.

"I don't think management would be interested in anything less than a 30-40 percent premium to even get the conversation started," said Luria at Wedbush.

But the headwinds the company faces may leave it with few bargaining chips, and, while Green Dot's market value is more than triple NetSpend's, it's unlikely to want to offer a big premium.

"I don't think they're (NetSpend) in a position to demand too much," said Chervitz. "If you assume a 20-30 percent premium, you're starting to come to a comparable valuation, which is like a merger of equals. I'm not sure that's something Green Dot would want to do."

If a deal gets done, it could signal a slowdown in growth for the pre-paid card sector as a whole.

"If you saw a deal happen, it's not a bullish thing," said Chervitz. "It probably says Green Dot is seeing some of the stress that NetSpend has seen, and sees the need to build up scale inorganically."

..naja, nicht ganz konklusiv, betrachtet man den möglichen "Impact" auf wachsende, aber noch viel kleinere Unternehmen wie SCG.

hallo,wait and see:

Investors cheer Selectcore’s Mastercard move

Notice a lot of commercials for payday loans of late? Does the pawn shop downtown seem to be thriving? What about that rent to own furniture place that promises no payments til 2012?

These businesses are actually part of a growing trend that was unwittingly given a massive shot in the arm by the global downturn of 2008-2009. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation estimates that half the worlds population has little or no access to basic banking services. And the US isn’t immune; the FDIC says that one-quarter of all people in that country are “unbanked or underbanked.”

Shares of Selectcore (TSXV:SCG) are on the march; rising from $.20 cents on May 2nd to close at $.69 cents today, more than tripling the company’s market cap in just five sessions. So why the move? On May 5th, SelectCore received approval for its Iridium brand MasterCard from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The Vaughan, Ontario company, which was established in 1999, has its roots are in selling prepaid telecom to an established network of retail convenience and grocery store locations. Selectcore has grown its revenue from $37 million in fiscal 2006 to over $103 million in 2010.

The prepaid wireless market is a good place to be. Telecom industry research firm Atlantic ACM estimates that this sector will grow from $19.3 billion in 2010 to $25.3 billion by 2015. But those numbers are dwarfed by the size of the prepaid credit card market. An independent research report commissioned by MasterCard estimates that market will surpass $440 billion by 2017, which is more than four times its estimated 2009 value of $120.2 billion

Selectcore’s Iridium joins the company’s other financial offering; ReCash, a voucher that can be loaded with cash and transferred instantly to another customer’s card via text message, online or by dialing a toll-free number.

Selectcore says the their new financial offerings are helping to improve the thin margins the company has experienced with prepaid wireless. In the fourth quarter of 2010, after non-operational, one-time year-end adjustments, gross profit was $1.76-million, an improvement of 223 per cent over the same period in 2009. President Ryan Deslippe says that Iridium, ReCash and “new product launches to be announced in 2011, will be key drivers of high-margin profitability.”

SELECTCORE LTD SCG 8/30/2011 7:01:31 AMTORONTO, ONTARIO, Aug 30, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network)

-- Cardholder fees have increased 25% over the previous quarter.
-- Total funds settlements have increased 42% over the previous quarter.Performance metrics for the past two quarters continue to prove the Company's business model successful. With limited capital resources to date, Iridium has been merchandised in less than 5% of SelectCore's retail channel, leaving a significant opportunity for growth and profitability as the Company completes its current financing initiatives to fund a nation-wide rollout.

Iridium MasterCard is the first of its kind, reloadable prepaid card offered in Canada. Everyone qualifies - no bank account, credit check or security deposit required, and the card is accepted at over 28.5 million locations and over 1 million ATMs worldwide.

On June 15, 2011 SelectCore also announced the launch of instant online reloads with Interac Online, allowing the Company to broaden its demographic audience from the unbanked to mainstream consumers such as parents and teenagers, students, travelers, and more. SelectCore also announced the ability for consumers to purchase an Iridium card online.

Iridium MasterCard is part of the Company's strategic growth strategy to diversify into high-margin financial transaction processing. SelectCore is uniquely positioned to leverage its legacy prepaid business, technology platform, capital investment in point of sale terminals and most importantly, direct access to millions of un-banked and credit challenged consumers through its extensive retail distribution channel.

The global prepaid market is expected to expand at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22% to an estimated $840 billion by 2017. North America will lead that expansion, growing to $442 billion by 2017, holding more than twice the market size of any other region.

Although the Company is not yet in a position to provide financial guidance, Management is of the opinion that based on current performance metrics, a full roll-out of Iridium over the next few quarters will drive strong growth resulting in long-term shareholder value.

The new mobile banking app allows cardholders to conveniently:

- check their account balance

- money-share between other Iridium cardholders in real-time

- and more

The new Iridium app for Blackberry devices is the latest development in SelectCore's efforts to offer industry-leading technology that provides for a superior user experience.

Belegt die Chancen/Selectcore Expansion Midlle East:

Visa sees 182% growth in Mideast prepaid cards

Visa saw a 182 percent growth in the prepaid card sector in the Middle East last year, with consumers in the UAE saying they are keen to move away from credit cards and cash.

Research by TNS Global has revealed that just six percent of UAE consumers are currently using prepaid cards.

But Satish Dave, senior director, Financial Services revealed that almost 50 percent of consumers are ready to shift to a prepaid product immediately.

A prepaid card is pre-loaded with the owner's money and purchases can be made according to how much is on the card so differs from a credit card as it doesn't entail the user going into debt.

Dave added that unbanked but affluent populations like the UAE would be the main driver of general prepaid products, adding that the youth segment would emerge as the fastest growing.

"The UAE alone has a youth population of around 450,000 and our research revealed that one third of them see prepaid as a useful tool for their daily life.

"In addition the prepaid potential is cutting across markets, with both unbanked teens and women across multi income levels showing an interest in prepaid," he said.

He added that Saudi Arabia has a youth market of more than six million, with more than half having no access to a card or even to a bank.

It is estimated that the prepaid card sector in the Middle East, central Asia and Africa will be worth more than $250bn in 2012, according to a host of experts at the second regional Prepaid Summit in Dubai.

Visa said the Middle East represented one of Visa's fastest growing prepaid markets, driven by the globalisation of the work force, increasing spending power among youth and a general shift from paper to electronic payments.

SelectCore Launches Facebook Social Mobile Remittance

PlatformSELECTCORE LTD SCG 10/4/2011 8:22:13 AMTORONTO, ONTARIO, Oct 04, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

ISIGN MEDIA AND SELECTCORE ANNOUNCE THE SIGNING OF A LETTER OF INTENT TO BUILD THE LARGEST MOBILE PROXIMITY-ADVERTISING FOOTPRINT

iSign Media Solutions Inc. and Selectcore Ltd. have signed a letter of intent to build out the largest retail mobile proximity-advertising footprint in North America.

Under the terms of the LOI, iSign and Selectcore are planning to embed iSign's patent-pending Interactive Marketing Solution (IMS) 3.1 software and its newly developed Smart Antenna into Selectcore's Verifone point-of-sale (POS) terminals in up to 7,000 convenience and grocery store locations throughout Canada and the United States. The length of the agreement will be three years, with an automatic renewal period of an additional three years.

"This opportunity came to us from the announcement regarding the Couche-Tard/Mac's convenience stores network and installation," said Alex Romanov, iSign's chief executive officer. "We believe that this is a tremendous opportunity for us to build out a second advertising footprint, similar to the Couche-Tard model."

Based upon previous test installations, iSign has the ability to reach an average of approximately 1,000 mobile devices within proximity of each of its installations. This reach would result in the Smart Antenna contacting approximately seven million viewers daily. The size of the reach makes the mobile advertising method extremely cost-efficient and effective to potential advertisers in comparison with television, radio and papers, as well as more traditional direct marketing.

As a result of the size of the company's reach, its expectation is that a full network rollout has the potential to generate at least $10-million in revenue annually from advertising and Anonymous Mobile Analytics (AMA) data per year. Of the $10-million in advertising revenue, Selectcore will retain 80 per cent and iSign 20 per cent. iSign expects, based upon its rate card, that licensing revenues for iSign's technology will have the potential to generate approximately $4.2-million annually.

iSign's cost to build this network with iSign's newly developed Smart Antennas will be approximately $1.05-million in capital expenditures.

"The introduction of our new Smart Antenna combines cost-efficiency with improved metric-gathering abilities from virtually all mobile devices," added Mr. Romanov. "This installation will provide our initial entry into the U.S. market, in addition to expanding our national coverage in Canada, making the network very appealing to advertising agencies and national brands."

"iSign's technology allows us to monetize and maximize the value of our retail point-of-sale network and access to a market of millions of consumers with mobile phones," commented Keith McKenzie, CEO of Selectcore. "Aligned with our growth strategy, this partnership has the potential to generate a new, high-margin revenue stream with virtually no capital expenditures."

We seek Safe Harbor.

SelectCore Announces Interact Online Reloads for Iridium Mobile Banking App

SelectCore Ltd. SCG 10/21/2011 10:15:59 AMSelectCore Announces Interact Online Reloads for Iridium Mobile Banking App
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2011) - SelectCore Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SCG), a prepaid telecom and financial services provider for the under-banked consumer market, is pleased to announce the launch of the Company's second-generation mobile banking Blackberry app for Iridium MasterCard.

The Company previously announced the initial launch of 'Interact Online reloads' in June of 2011 followed by the release of its Iridium mobile banking app in September. This mobile platform is the first of its kind to offer instant mobile value loads to a prepaid stored-value card.

In addition, the mobile banking app also allows cardholders to conveniently:
• check their account balance
• view recent transaction history including purchases, loads and more
• money-share between other Iridium cardholders in real-time
• and more

Cardholders can conveniently manage their account while on the go 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year. The added functionality of the Interact Online reload option now allows cardholders and more importantly, the 'banked' to fund the 'unbanked' in real-time.

This convenient reload option is secure and easy to use, allowing funds to be transferred directly and instantaneously from an existing bank account using Interact Online technology.

"This innovative feature allows us to significantly broaden our demographic audience from the unbanked to mainstream consumers such as parents and teenagers, students and friends and family abroad" said Keith McKenzie, CEO of SelectCore.

"This revolutionizes the way consumers will use and fund prepaid cards", said Ryan Deslippe, President of SelectCore. "Cardholders or their friends and family can now reload an Iridium card from anywhere in the world, instantly from their mobile device."

SelectCore also intends to include this new feature with the launch of its iPhone and Android mobile banking app releases.

The next phase of the Company's mobile strategy is to introduce a complete 'mobile wallet' solution utilizing near-field communications (NFC) payment technology. As payment networks, processors and acquirers continue to deploy NFC technology and point-of-sale devices, Iridium customers will be able to use their mobile wallet instead of a traditional card to make purchases at millions of merchant locations worldwide.

Interessantes Statement, Meinungen dazu??

After reading this board for quite some time I have come to realize that instead of providing me any relevant, useful, or reliable information, this board instead makes me question why I keep coming back to read these idiotic posts (I'll give some credit to the technical traders that have posted some insight into the share price movement...but then again, I’m not "trading" this stock so technical’s aren't that beneficial for me).

On to the good stuff.

When you look at all the” fundamental" catalysts that SCG has going for it, it should be ridiculously obvious that this stock is not only undervalued but flat out a "steal" at these levels.

We all know about the exponential growth anticipated in the prepaid market (if you want to see some prepaid growth stories check out some of the press releases on this industry) the clip rate is nuts and Green Dot appears to be the market leader in the U.S. in this space....evident by it's 52 Price to Earnings multiple that it is trading at this week

Question, How can SCG trade at such a discount when SCG has far superior prepaid products and services with the "Recash" network.



The "Recash" network will sell itself as retailers will have a new revenue stream at no cost to them...By the way, this isn't chump change for convenience stores, you need to sell a lot of chocolate bars to make the $15 or so from processing a reload, throw in the fact that they can increase foot traffic (which is why they offer lottery tickets), and this is an absolute NO BRAINER). But wait, it get's better! How about throwing in a terminal that also provides you with a smart antenna so you can broadcast all your in store specials and other marketing efforts for a minimal spend? Need I say more?



If you don't understand the significance of the iSign agreement here is a look at their technology: Don’t be surprised if SCG targets their merchant services to the bigger retailers looking to gain market share that Moneris (owned by BMO and RBC) and Chase Paymentech currently dominate. As a side note, Paymentech’s terminals are Verifone terminals, without the smart antenna’s or capability of being a “ReCash”agent!



In short, not only will this network create merchant services revenue, it will also lure more and more customers to use only prepaid cards that are linked into the largest reloadable network available (let alone the cool technology such as social media and online reloads). Yes, this is great for SCG’s prepaid CARDS’s (and I say it pluralized because there are more cards coming), but it is also a HUGE deal for other prepaid cards that want to expand their reload capabilities…hence

SCG will license their technology to other prepaid card offerers for yet another revenue stream. Think about Western Union, Money Mart, CashMoney and others being able to expand their network beyond their brick and mortar locations instantly and cost effectively. Another no brainer.



You might say that SCG is just a penny stock and of course it should trade at far less a multiple than the market leader, but then again you might not think that the penny stock has a far superior technology and business model! It might be labelled a venture for now but the fact is this isn’t a company that you are banking on to potentially have a $100 MM in sales, they already have it. Sure you can say margins are thin, but let’s be honest here, most growing companies lose a boat load of money before even making revenue! Are you joking me that a $500k loss is something to fret about? The iSign deal alone will wipe out this loss. Besides, look at how little revenue and how big losses are for most venture companies (especially those in industries that have a much slower growth rate) that trade at higher share prices and PE’s than this gem!



So let all the supposed penny traders make their half a cent each way down and up, they’ll be some mornings like yesterday where they wish they hadn’t sold as we all know there is way more news and profits to come…as stated by SCG themselves when they said that there will be more press releases prior to the conference call next week. This is way way more than a trade, it’s an investment. As someone that works in the industry and who has traded stocks for over a decade, this is a true diamond in the rough and the only penny stock I own….. so, supposed traders and amateurs keep selling for your half cent swings that only trigger every few days , I’ll be buying.



If you want to trade volume and volatility trade hyper ETF’s like Horizon’s not investments like this.

Hello everyone!



I recently launched an Instablog on SeekingAlpha which I invite you to come and read. I will be providing in-depth coverage on a number of TSX Venture technology companies (PYN, INT, SCG, ISD, and SPY initially).

Here is an excerpt from my inaugural blog post entitled “Getting from Poynt ‘A’, to Poynt ‘B’”:


As of today (November 10th), Poynt is trading well below the most recent financing and has since made tremendous accomplishments in becoming the next breakout technology company on the TSX Venture. That being said, there are a few key facets of the company which I believe the market doesn’t fully comprehend that I’d like to elucidate. In short:

1. The intellectual property (IP) portfolio i.e., the patents, and their worth

2. The value of the user base

3. The opportunity in India

4. The fact that ‘Search’ is much more valuable than ‘Social’

If you would like to read more, please visit:


http://seekingalpha.com/user/1062479/instablog


In the next few weeks I’ll be blogging about each of the aforementioned companies.


In fact, my next article will be on Selectcore! There is much to discuss leading up to, and after the release of the Q3 financials


I look forward to being an active part of this community.

Please provide feedback in regards to your thoughts on my article - Thanks in advance


Cheers,

SelectCore Signs Agreement to Purchase Canadian Payment Processor

SelectCore Ltd. SCG 2/10/2012 6:00:02 AMSelectCore Signs Agreement to Purchase Canadian Payment Processor

http://at.marketwire.com/accesstracking/AccessTrackingLogServlet?docid=0765180001&sourceType=1http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/sc200.jpgTORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/10/12 -- SelectCore Ltd. ("SelectCore" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SCG), a prepaid telecom and financial services provider and transaction processor for the under-banked consumer market, announced today that further to the Company's press releases dated October 31, 2011, November 21, 2011 and January 23, 2012, it has executed the definitive asset purchase agreement to acquire the assets of an arms-length Canadian payment processor, Conquest Financial Services ("Conquest").

Through this acquisition, SelectCore will add in excess of 2,200 new point-of-sale terminals and merchants to its retail network across Canada. Based on historical performance, the addition of this business is estimated to generate approximately $1.2 million in annual profit for the Company not including the incremental revenues and profits anticipated from synergies and the extension of Conquest's services to SelectCore's existing retail partners.

The purchase price of $4,760,000 will be satisfied through the issuance of 16,413,793 shares in the capital of the Company. An additional 1,034,482 shares will be held in escrow and released quarterly over the next 40 months contingent on the Conquest business meeting certain performance metrics. If these metrics are not fully met, any unreleased shares at the end of the 40-month period will be returned to the Company and cancelled. Additional cash consideration can be earned by Conquest over the next 40 months based on 75% of incremental net profit realized from two new customers. An earn-out of up to five million shares in the capital the Company or a portion thereof, can be earned by Conquest upon finalizing the development of a key product offering within the next five months.

Management is of the view that this Acquisition is accretive and will strategically enable SelectCore to launch an industry-first, debit/credit payment processing solution for the independent convenience store channel. The Company intends to offer this new solution to its existing retail partners where SelectCore-owned VeriFone point-of-sale devices have already been deployed. The transaction also facilitates the Company's entrance into the rapidly growing mobile payments and NFC (near field communication) space.

"This acquisition is a key step in the advancement of the Company's business plan to develop new, high-margin payment technologies and financial services while providing a unified solution to our retail partners," commented Keith McKenzie, Chief Executive Officer of SelectCore. "The added mechanism of payment processing gives SelectCore leadership status amongst comparable peers who cannot offer a one stop point of sale solution."

The transaction is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
