Very happy for Boku to buy back as many shares as they can at this very low price! Not shady or underhanded tactics in my opinion, (the market has set the price, not Boku). In simple terms, it is good for remaining shareholders because there are fewer shares in issue, fewer shares in issue means that the remaining shareholders own a greater percentage of the company, (shareholder accreditive). On the opposite hand, I would be very irritated if they raised capital at such a low share price,(shareholder dilutive).
still think that following today's update?
I'm not sure I follow you. Who is this currently good for ? They could have introduced the share buy back scheme at 1.75 or 1.50 and perhaps shown the market that they had real confidence in the higher prices people were already paying. I have a small amount to off load. If we get a bounce I'm out, never to return. I have been praising this company for a long time now as undervalued. No longer, shady and underhand tactics without a single care for their shareholders. They won't get a second chance to do that to me again.
Surely a buy back at such a low share price is good news in the long term!
Utterly disgusted with Boku and the Board of Manipulators. Stock price stinks of being heavily manipulated to suit this share buy back scheme. Coupled with not a single bit of news or progress from the company in ages, backs up my theory they are hammering the price down. Not only that you now have a bunch of extremely upset bag holders for a second time stuck at the 1.90 and above mark. Disgusted...
I prefer Bango myself but here you go for what it's worth. Https://

Boku has had a strong run-up starting from the lows of March 2020 and it peaked out at 212.00 September 2021. We are witnessing a healthy pullback/consolidation from such a strong move up. Nothing continues to go up in a straight line without having healthy pullbacks/consolidations. We shall see.
Respectfully I say, that I think you are totally misguided with respect to the identity division and what it represented to Boku. I'm watching the monthly chart and I am seeing support coming in and buying from the weak sellers at these prices. If anything I still believe Boku is cheap. We shall see.
The background:
It wasn't originally but when they bought the identity business they pined a lot on it and momentum in the rest of the business has slowed. I think the company will grow but not fast enough to justify the current share price inmy view
If the only reason you held Boku was because of their Identity division then I would agree you should bail.
Not good news. The big growth hope the ID business that they have been banging on about is being sold. I can see growth to come but nothing spectacular. I sold out completely this morning
Bangladeshi operator Robi Axiata is joining Fortumo’s payments platform. Merchants connected to Fortumo’s platform can now collect payments from more than 52 million Robi and Airtel subscribers through direct carrier billing. Fortumo’s Unified SDK connects merchants to Robi and a network of hundreds of telcos and 30+ digital wallets through a single integration. Fortumo hosts and localises Unified SDK checkout flows on its platform, making it simple and scalable for merchants to launch local payment methods across the world. In Bangladesh, credit card penetration is only 0.2% while 41% of people own a smartphone. For merchants, this creates the problem of having many users able to access services but without a payment method to pay for premium content. Carrier billing solves the problem by allowing any mobile device owner to charge payments to their phone bill instead. “Demand for digital services is increasing among Bangladeshi consumers but one of the biggest barriers is the payment medium. With partners like Fortumo and carrier billing, it will be much easier to facilitate payments which will contribute us to better serve our customers,” said Ahmed Armaan Siddiqui, EVP of VAS & New Business at Robi Axiata Ltd. “Adding local payment methods is the main way merchants can achieve rapid revenue growth in emerging markets. Our aim at Fortumo is to make launching those otherwise complex payment methods as simple as possible for merchants,” added Martin Lips, VP of Business Development at Fortumo.

Pandemic pushes more than 80% growth for e-wallet players. Monday, October 18th, 2021 at Money | News E-wallets transactions rose to an average of 25% post-Covid-19, indicating that consumers will continue to use digital payments by S BIRRUNTHA / pic by TMR FILE THE Covid-19 has resulted in more than 80% growth for e-wallet usage in the country, as limited movement pushes cashless payments among Malaysians in the past 18 months. Based on Google’s e-Conomy South-East Asia 2020 report, e-wallets transactions rose to an average of 25% post-Covid-19, indicating that consumers will continue to use digital payments, given their convenience. In fact, Malaysians recorded an average of 170 digital payments in 2020 and a report by Boku Inc highlighted that e-wallets are the most preferred payment method among consumers in South-East Asia. Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz had noted in his opening keynote address at the recent Malaysian Banking and Finance Summit 2021 that e-wallet volume has increased 89% to 468 million transactions in just one year up to June 2021. TNG Digital Sdn Bhd CEO Ignatius Ong told The Malaysian Reserve (TMR) that as of the first half of 2021 (1H21), online use cases grew by 86% compared to the post eTunai and ePenjana period (in 2020) versus offline use cases with an increase of 75%. “We observed that more users are actively transferring e-money within our Touch ‘n Go eWallet ecosystem compared to a year ago, where the ‘Transfer̵7; feature recorded an increase of 182%. “The pandemic and the enforcement of the Movement Control Orders have boosted the adoption of e-wallet as the situation has pushed consumers into cashless payments with their new shopping and payment habits,” he said in a recent interview. “The eWallet is secure, with advanced security solutions such as biometric authentication that can reduce the threat of fraud and chargebacks. “There are also fewer steps to complete a purchase on the eWallet. Additionally, businesses can offer more rewards on the eWallet while users benefit from discounts or reward points,” he said. Ong added that e-wallet is suitable as an everyday wallet and plays a crucial part in the “new normal”. E-wallet usage has become essential for purchasing goods, settling bills, food delivery, road tax renewal, insurance purchase, mobile reloads and more. Additionally, he said Touch ‘n Go eWallet users can also track their spending easily as the eWallet records all transactions digitally and automatically. He pointed out that merchants were also quick to adopt and embrace the trend as more consumers embraced the usage of e-wallets. “Touch ‘n Go eWallet currently has more than one million merchants touchpoints, including DuitNow QR, the national QR standard. “At Touch ‘n Go, we encourage more onboarding for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and micro-merchants to adopt the e-commerce and e-payment platforms as it allows them to access more than 16 million users across Malaysia,” Ong said. The firm launched the DuitNow Transfer function yesterday, allowing its users to move their monies from any Internet banking account directly to the eWallet in real-time. Meanwhile, Boost CEO Sheyantha Abeykoon stated that for 18 months from January 2020 to June 2021, Boost eWallet merchant base increased by over 85%. He said about 50% of the platform’s new merchants consist of traditional cash-based micro, SMEs. “During the period, our user base grew by over 76% and our gross transaction value for payments made to online merchants increased by over 35%. “At the start of the pandemic, our offline QR code-based transactions accounted for almost 70% of our domestic payment volumes and online volumes were 30%. “By mid-2021, we saw a huge shift and 65% of our payment volumes were generated by online use cases,” he told TMR. According to him, Boost previously had over 9.3 million users and the platform user base grew by over 76% over the 18-month pandemic period of January 2020 to June 2021. He added that consumers have opted for safer and more seamless means of transacting as the pandemic raged on. “For instance, by the end of 2020, we saw a steep 75% increase in our user base and a 65% increase in our merchant base, which was representative of the desire to shift to cashless payment options. “We believe that some of these trends, in particular, the usage of contactless payments and adoption of digitised means of operating for small business will outlast the pandemic and represent structural shifts in the behaviour of our customers,” he said. He added that Boost eWallet saw a 40% increase in bill payment on the platform in 1H21 compared to 1H20. “Partnerships and collaborations also drove e-wallet adoption. Malaysians were already becoming accustomed to online shopping by then, so the addition of our e-wallet as a payment option made it a convenient choice for customers. “Additionally, business owners also played a big role in driving e-wallet adoption. Businesses needed to adapt to the pandemic and our merchants took our service well and it helped drive the e-wallet usage,” he noted. Apart from that, Abeykoon said another aspect of the new normal is the use of QR codes being synonymous or second nature with our lifestyle now. He emphasised that our daily outdoor activities involve scanning a QR code to check-in and check-out wherever we go using the MySejahtera app, and this has helped Malaysians familiarise themselves with scanning QR codes. He also noted that offline e-wallet payments primarily use QR codes which made it familiar for new e-wallet users to come on board. https ://
