    Trunkbow conference call - PAY relevance

    Trunkbow Holdings (TBOW on Nasdaq) is hosting a cc this Fri 3/30 at 8:00 am ET to discuss earnings and guidance.
    This is 2 days after they present at a Barclays Capital Emerging Payments Forum in NYC.
    How does this have Verifone relevance?
    PAY is a large investor of TBOW stock having purchased 5% at the IPO and another 5% a few months ago. In addition, one of the PAY board members is also one of the TBOW board members.
    TBOW is a payments platform and services provider in China. They recently landed agreements with "the Big 3": China Unicom, China Telecom and China Mobile (the largest mobile provider in the world far outpassing AT&T, Verizon, etc.)
    Also, TBOW also just partnered with China UnionPay which is similar to our VISA and Mastercard to provide mobil payment services for POS - pont of sale.
    Who is the POS provider? Read from TBOW report:
    "Recent Developments
    Concurrently with the closing of the February 2010 Offering, we entered into a master engagement agreement (“VeriFone Agreement”) with VeriFone, Inc. (“VeriFone”) such that VeriFone is our exclusive provider of point of sale hardware, software and services that are purchased or deployed by us and our affiliates and we have agreed to use our best efforts to ensure that VeriFone will receive at least 80% of the orders for point of sale systems placed by the Company’s mobile operator partners. Pursuant to the terms of the VeriFone Agreement, we submitted a binding, non-cancellable purchase order to VeriFone covering an initial order of $5 million of VeriFone’s point of sale systems for deployment in China as part of its rollout. The full amount of the purchase order was paid upon submission to VeriFone. Additionally, the Master Engagement Agreement contains a non-binding deployment schedule covering a total of 125,000 point of sale systems to be supplied by VeriFone through the end of 2012.
    VeriFone invested $5 million in the February 2010 Offering. We have granted VeriFone the ability to name one of the directors on our Board of Directors so long as it beneficially owns at least 4.99% of our outstanding Common Stock."

    Although TBOW has a smal market cap, I see tremendous synergy here with TBOW utilizing PAY into mainland China where POS is still in its infancy but growing very rapidly. I do not have the cc number yet but with PAY owning 10% of the stock, it would be worth listening to. (all imho)
