net 1 ueps technologies inc (UEPS) Key Developments

Net 1 Ueps Technologies Inc. Names Cash Paymaster Services (Pty) Ltd. as Respondent in Notice of Motion Filed by Corruption Watch

Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. announced that Cash Paymaster Services (Pty) Ltd. (CPS), a subsidiary of the company, has been named as a respondent in a Notice of Motion filed by Corruption Watch. The Notice of Motion seeks an order from the High Court of South Africa for the reviewing and setting aside of the decision by the Chief Executive Officer of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) on April 25, 2014 to approve payment of ZAR 317 million (approximately USD 26.4 million at the current exchange rate) to CPS. Corruption Watch claims that there was no lawful basis for the SASSA CEOs decision, that the decision was unreasonable and irrational and that the decision did not comply with South African legislation. The Company announced on June 6, 2014 that it had received approximately ZAR 275 million, excluding VAT, (or USD 25.7 million at prevailing exchange rates) from SASSA, related to the recovery of additional implementation costs incurred during the beneficiary re-registration process in fiscal 2012 and 2013. At the time, SASSA requested Net1 to biometrically register all social grant beneficiaries (including all child beneficiaries), in addition to the grant recipients who were issued with the SASSA-branded UEPS/EMV smart cards. As a result, Net1 performed approximately 11 million additional registrations that did not form part of its monthly service fee and claimed a cost recovery from SASSA, supported by a factual findings certificate from an independent auditing firm. SASSA agreed to pay the ZAR 275 million as full settlement of the additional costs incurred. SASSAs decision to re-register all 21 million social grant beneficiaries has enabled it, through the use of Net1s biometric search engine and data analysis tools, to identify and remove any duplicate, invalid and non-existent grant recipients from the grant system.

Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. Partners with UBER in South Africa for Effortless Payment

ZAZOO, a business unit of Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. announced that it has partnered with UBER, the smartphone technology that connects riders with drivers, in South Africa. ZAZOO's revolutionary VCpay mobile application enables people who do not own credit cards to create virtual MasterCards that can be used to pay for the UBER service. VCpay is a mobile application that utilizes Net1's patented Mobile Virtual Card (MVC) technology, which enables mobile devices to generate virtual MasterCard payment cards completely offline and without access to a mobile phone network. Users can activate VCpay by following a simple over-the-air registration process and linking the application to any number of funding options, from credit cards, to EFTs, to direct top-ups, cash and more. The application allows users to generate anonymous, transaction specific virtual MasterCards that can be used for online purchases, or in brick-and-mortar retailers that accept manual Card Not Present payments and now they can use it to register and pay for trips on the UBER application.
