SINGAPORE, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --C-SAM, a pioneer in secure mobile
transactions technology offering a range of mobilephone-based solutions for
financial as well as non-financial services, and StarHub, Singapore's fully
integrated info-communication company, today announced the newest update to
theSmartWalletmobile app which will enable near field communication (NFC)
peer-to-peer (P2P) mobile ticketing services. The mobile ticketing innovation
is the world's first NFC mobile wallet with P2P redemption of movie tickets.

Starting April 6, 2013, StarHub's SmartWallet will allow customers to purchase
Shaw Theatres movie tickets with their NFC-enabled mobile phones and then
redeem these digitally stored entrance tickets with a single tap of the phone
on a contactless reader at the cinema. This new capability reduces the time
customers spend purchasing and redeeming tickets, creating a compelling and
seamless customer experience for movie ticketing.Shaw Theatres, a leading
theater group inSingapore, is the first company to deploy the NFC mobile
ticketing service.

Prior to this, C-SAM and StarHub partnered to launch SmartWallet, StarHub's
user-friendly mobile wallet app that enables single-tap NFC payment and
lifestyle services. With SmartWallet, StarHub Mobile customers are able to
make secure NFC payment and redeem digital coupons conveniently with their
NFC-enabled smartphones at partner merchants across Singapore. Currently,
SmartWallet offers three contactless payment card options: credit card,
pre-paid card and an ePurse transit card. StarHub is the first mobile operator
in the Asia Pacific region to commercially offer a comprehensively-bundled NFC
digital wallet on a mobile device for Singapore consumers.

"When we launched SmartWallet late last year, StarHub Mobile customers were
the first in Singapore to enjoy the benefits of making secure contactless
payment and redeeming digital coupons conveniently at partner merchants across
Singapore. To augment our customers' experience and offer them greater
convenience, we are pleased to enhance SmartWallet with the world's first
comprehensive NFC-based movie ticketing service, allowing StarHub Mobile
customers to browse and book the available show times at their favourite Shaw
Theatres anytime, anywhere, as well as collect movie tickets with a single tap
of their NFC-enabled smartphone," said Ms Yeong Mun-Ling, Vice President of
Business Strategy at StarHub. "Our continued collaboration with C-SAM expands
our portfolio of mobile transaction services to the movie ticketing space,
further reinforcing our commitment to delivering personalized mobile services
to our customers."

"Our joint offering with StarHub allows merchants like Shaw Theatres to
embrace new technologies that provide a better customer experience for their
patrons. We look forward to continuing to work with StarHub to deliver
innovative mobile payment solutions that make a positive impact on merchants'
bottom line," said Felix Marx, chief executive officer at C-SAM.
