RNS Number:1308M Datacash Group PLC 11 May 2005 11 May 2005 DATACASH GROUP PLC ('DataCash' or 'the Company') PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WITH CLICK2PAY DataCash, the UK's leading payment services provider, today announced it has integrated with CLICK2PAY, the e-Wallet provided by Wire Card AG, Europe's leading supplier of financial supply chain solutions. The integration means DataCash can meet the growing demand from its customers to extend the number of ways they can process payments internationally. Historically DataCash has supplied merchants with the ability to be paid by credit, debit card and UK direct debit. DataCash can now offer a global payments solution to support its merchants' requirements including ACH in North America, ELVs in Germany, bank wire in Scandinavia, direct debit in Singapore and offline and online money transfers. DataCash's strategy is to integrate with best of breed technology partners to supply customers with the widest range of payment methods available. The partnership with CLICK2PAY represents a significant development of this strategy. DataCash continues to explore similar partnering opportunities further to extend the range and depth of payment solutions it can bring its customers. CLICK2PAY was launched in May 2004. Its userbase is growing at more than 20% per month and comprises merchants and users from all over the world. CLICK2PAY is supported by a 500 man call centre which is able to communicate in seven languages including Chinese and Japanese. The CLICK2PAY wallet can be used to pay for goods and services with any DataCash merchant that has elected to use the service. Importantly for the gaming market, CLICK2PAY can be used to make instant transactions and withdrawals. This feature is a major differentiator from other e-Wallets and is especially important in allowing first time users to place a bet quickly rather than have to wait until funds are cleared through the financial networks. DataCash believes CLICK2PAY will be particularly well received by its gaming clients who require the broadest possible payment solutions in what is already a truly global business. CLICK2PAY should also allow DataCash to expand its presence in other sectors such as the digital content market where wallets are a more economic and practical method of collecting micro and small value payment than traditional credit and debit cards. "What we really like about the CLICK2PAY is it has been built acknowledging the importance of local languages and payment preferences rather than expect the world to deal in dollars and use credit cards," says Gavin Breeze, development director at DataCash. "We look forward to working with CLICK2PAY to drive this powerful proposition into the marketplace." * * ENDS * * Press Enquiries: Isabel Crossley St Brides Media & Finance Ltd Tel: 020 7242 4477 About DataCash DataCash is the only quoted payment solution provider in the UK and provides outsourced solutions for the authorisation, settlement and fraud management of credit and debit cards as well as direct debits, direct credits and cheques.

Baheid101, data certainly have a few high volume travel companies and the like - just their kind of client as these larger clients tend to build systems around the authorisation process meaning that they are less likely to transfer to another PSP. I would be surprised if they had easyjet as a client as i have met Ray Webster from Easyjet and, unless data offered him a cracking deal, he would rather easyjet set up their own authorisation process than have it done by a PSP. Most other companies are happy to outsource what is not essentially part of their core business. Regards

IC rated them a buy in their results round up section but didn't tell us anything we don't know already. As for news I think chip and pin is only a matter of time until announcements. DYOR

Any extracts from IC and/or Fleet Street much appreciated. The shares are tightly held and the free float is small.. their house broker is nearly always looking for stock. I was expecting some big developmant on April 5th (results day) but guess whatever it is will happen fairly soon. It's shaping-up for an excellent year. The US IBM story is crazy...they had net income up at 84 cents against 79 cents BUT the analysts were looking for 90 cents, because they had a great 4Q last year!!! The Dow will bounce big next week as markets way over-sold IMO.

Data are well placed in their own niche market place which is basically large gambling sites. They decided a long time ago to go for big transaction volume players - which naturally led them to the betting industry - as opposed to client volume at the SME end of the market. They have invested a lot to ensure that their hardware is stable and resilient to the ever increasing DDOS attacks which PSP's are currently seeing from our russian mafia friends. Data are effectively 18 months to two years ahead of the competition in terms of both profitability and diversifying their product base (i.e offering chip and pin and hooking up with some major channel partners etc However, the cons are this: the betting industry is currently flavour of the month and everyone and his dog wants a slice of the action (see earthport trying to muscle in by spinning off their subsiduary (forgoten the name!) and because data have large transaction clients but relatively few of them if they were to lose a large client it would have a disproportionate effect on their bottom line and would effectively be an instant profits warning. Don't get me wrong - i think data is a great company and i currently hold them in my sipp - E-commerce transactions are still in their infancy and this market has a long way to go - average monthly compound growth in the PSP market is currently about 5% for CNP transactions so even if chip and Pin did not work out for data it would not be the end of the world. Real beauty is that once systems are set up and capital investment has been made then revenue from new clients goes straight to p/l - bar ongoing development costs. Not really much need to employ more staff as most things can be automated. Excuse the length of this - quiet day!! Regards

Everton448, I assume you will be aware that this type of article is paid for by Datacash. Bloor Research are well respected but - like most allegedly "independent" research groups - take the money from the client and then write the article in favour of the client. I work within the PSP industry and have a close knowledge of all the players - Datacash, Worldpay, Protx, Secure Trading, SecPay and Netbanx etc and this guy has not done much research and hasn't really scratched the surface of the PSP marketplace. Just a thought........

Top sliced a few today - keeping a core holding but the PE is rather demanding relative to NLR who I feel will provide serious competition in the gambling area (that is a large % of revenues). All my deposits to my online bookie are now done via NLR instead of credit cards so that is my business gone. Will keep core holding and wait for C&P and possible takeover news.

From Growth Company Investor (BUY) We've consistently supported DataCash, the payments service provider that rapidly improving under savvy CEO Terry Cave, who joined the business last July. Preliminary figures to December were exceptional, with adjusted profits rocketing 102% north to £1.52m, and cash more than doubling to £3.2m, thanks to the inherent cash generation of the business, allowing Cave to announce a first ever dividend of 0.5p. Turnover burgeoned 30% higher to £4.6m, which reflected continuing growth in the core 'card-holder not present' transaction volumes, which were up more than 50% year-on-year to 41m. Tellingly, DataCash processed about 8,000 transactions a day when it first joined the market back in 2000. Today 140,000 a day is the norm, rising to 250,000-plus on certain days such as major sporting events like the Grand National (clients in the important gaming sector include Ladbrokes). Over in the 'card-holder present' (chip & PIN) market, DataCash's relationship with IBM and its partners 'is showing good promise', although no contracts have yet been signed. Nevertheless, there's enough going on in the core business to excite investors. For 2005, Investec Securities' Guy Hewett upgraded his profit forecasts from £2.3m to £2.4m, giving earnings of 5.1p and a forward rating of 23. We first backed the company at 71p in Company Watch, and still see plenty of potential here. Add.
