About Net1 (www.net1.com)

Net1 provides its universal electronic payment system, or UEPS, as an alternative payment system for the unbanked and under-banked populations of developing economies. Net1's market-leading system enables the estimated four billion people who generally have limited or no access to a bank account, to enter affordably into electronic transactions with each other, government agencies, employers, merchants and other financial service providers. Net1's universal electronic payment system, or UEPS, uses smart cards that operate in real-time but offline, unlike traditional payment systems offered by major banking institutions that require immediate access through a communications network to a centralized computer. This offline capability means that users of the Net1 system can enter into transactions at any time with other card holders even in the most remote areas so long as a portable offline smart card reader is available. In addition to payments and purchases, UEPS can be used for banking, healthcare management, international money transfers, voting and identification.

Net1 also focuses on the development and provision of secure transaction technology, solutions and services and offers transaction processing, financial and clinical risk management solutions to both funders and providers of healthcare. Its core competencies around secure online transaction processing, cryptography and integrated circuit card (chip/smartcard) technologies are principally applied to electronic commerce transactions in the telecommunications, banking, retail, petroleum and utilities market sectors.

Net1 has a primary listing on the Nasdaq and a secondary listing on the JSE Limited.
