Investing Idea; India's 700 Million Unbanked Population: Mobile Payment Stocks to Watch: (C), (CLPI), (VOD)

Point Roberts, WA - April 22, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors reports on the emerging mobile payment sector in India, estimated to represent a 700 Million unbanked population and how investors can participate in the play.

According to a recent article in Times of India, venture capitalists see the significant opportunity and are investing heavily in the e-payment sector . "A combination of positive regulatory intent and growing market demand is leading to a burst of entrepreneurial activity in the country's electronic payments sector. A number of new ventures offering innovative cashless payment methods are coming up as investors step up to fund and support them."
For investors looking for publicly traded companies in the space, there are a handful of companies already gaining traction.
India Mobile Payment Stocks Snapshot
Calpian, Inc. (OTCQB: CLPI) reported in early April that its Indian subsidiary, Money-on-Mobile, had its largest growth month to date. According to the press release, " As of March 31, 2013, the Money-on-Mobile service offered by its Indian subsidiary, is now being supported by over 130,250 retail locations, increased from 126,200 on February 28, 2013, and accessed by approximately 44 million unique phone number customers, up from the 39.5 million reported from the previous month. The March 2013 processed transaction volume, measured in Indian rupees, was 810 million INR - an approximate 149 million increase over February 2013 processed volume. At current exchange rates, March processed transaction volume was approximately $15 million.
Calpian's (OTCQB: CLPI) stock is trading in the $2.00 range with a 52 week high of $3.25.
According to Calpian CEO, Harold Montgomery, "The growth of Money-on-Mobile is nothing short of astounding. We continue to see, month after month, the number of unique users, retail outlets and processed volume increase dramatically. We could not be more pleased that Money-on-Mobile is thriving in the Indian marketplace."
Last week Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD) India and ICICI Bank launched M-Pesa - a leading mobile money transfer and payment service .
According to the press release, " Pesa was launched by Vodafone in 2007 and is now available in eight countries, including Kenya, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The service allows customers to send and receive small amounts of money via their mobile phones as securely and simply as sending a text message. Prior to M-Pesa, many people in developing markets had no choice but to move cash around in person or by public transport, exposing them to delays, personal risk and loss of money in certain cases.
Following a successful trial, the service will be offered initially through more than 8,300 specially trained and authorised M-Pesa agents in eastern areas of India, including Kolkata, West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand, covering a population of around 220 million people. The service will be rolled out across the rest of India in a phased approach."
Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD) is trading at $29.71, up 0.12(0.41%) 9:49AM EDT on just under 900,000 shares.
Citibank Indiaa subsidiary of Citigroup, Inc. (NYSE:C) announced earlier this year its launch of a fully integrated and certified mobile payment solution in India and across the Citigroup network, globally. The stock is trading at $44.91 on just over 1.8 million shares in early morning trading.

Mobile Stock News; Calpian, Inc. (CLPI) Goes Mobile on Two Continents

April 18, 2013 (Investorideas.com mobile payment stocks newswire) Investorideas.com, a leader in sector research for independent investors, reports on recent developments with Calpian, Inc. (OTCQB:CLPI). Calpian is a Dallas-based company which acquires retail credit and debit card processing cash flows from Independent Sales Organizations (“ISOs”) in the United States. The company also is a substantial owner of the largest mobile money transfer company in India, known as Money- on - Mobile, which allows consumers to pay bills and send money to other users throughout India, a service which regulatory changes made possible in just 2011 and which provides a greenfield opportunity in this country of 1.2 billion people. Additionally, Calpian's recent acquisition has expanded the company's mobile payment presence to now include the U.S., in addition to its Money-on-Mobile subsidiary in Mumbai, India.

On March 18 th Calpian announced it had completed the purchase of the assets of Pipeline Data, including its proprietary payments-related software and services and access to third-party payment platforms.
According to recent filings in the bankruptcy court for Pipeline Data, the company generated roughly $27 million in gross revenues.
Calpian, Inc.'s President, Craig Jessen, said in a March 18 th press release, "This acquisition represents Calpian Inc.'s commitment to becoming a world-class payments company with leading-edge solutions for virtually every payment scenario.”
According to the company's website, Calpian appears to be rebranding the new acquisition as Calpian Commerce, and rethinking its marketing strategy.
From recent additions to the company's website for Calpian Commerce, it describes its mobile payments solution, AIRCHARGE™, as a wireless terminal that communicates with the processor via the company's proprietary payment gateway, SecurePay™.  AIRCHARGE™ may be ideally suited for any merchant - large or small - with a mobile business.  It is different from other mobile solutions as it supports payment processing for merchants with one or multiple business operations allowing for simpler, quicker and more accurate reconciliation, all through the company's proprietary gateway, SecurePay™. A plumbing service with a fleet of trucks, for example, can completely process electronic payments with real-time authorizations and printed receipts while at each service location.  The company's products are expected to cut down on the cost of accepting electronic payments and help the merchant be more competitive by offering its customers cost -effective preferred payment options.
According to the company's March 18 th press release, "Calpian Commerce offers access to leading third party payment platforms to process credit and debit card transactions [through its SecurePay™ payment gateway], ACH, [and] mobile acceptance [through its AIRCHARGE™ product] to merchants in the U.S. operating in the physical “brick and mortar” environment as well as over the Internet, and in settings requiring wired as well as wireless/portable payment solutions."
On April 3 th, Calpian, Inc. reported that, as of March 31 st, 2013, Money-on-Mobile is now being supported by over 130,250 retail locations, increased from 126,200 on February 28 th and accessed by approximately 44 million unique phone number customers, up from the 39.5 million reported from the previous month. The March 2013 processed transaction volume, measured in Indian rupees, was 810 million INR - an approximate 26.6% increase over February 2013 processed volume. At current exchange rates, March processed transaction volume was approximately $15 million.
Going forward, it will be interesting to see whether the company might soon qualify for listing on a major exchange where it could enjoy greater visibility and build a more robust following of its shares. If that were to happen, acting ahead of such a move could represent a buying opportunity. However, it is impossible to say whether or not such a move is likely and /or predict how it might affect the performance of the stock.
