SAN ANTONIO, TX, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - SmartCard Marketing Systems Inc. (PINKSHEETS:SMKG) Management stated that the company recently signed 3 significant prepaid debit card programs representing over 3mm customers which add an important underlying value to the company short-term and long. These accomplishments need to also reflect shareholder value short term which we believe can be delivered and translated into improved price per share of the company's common stock. In the months to come we will materialize and improve the value of the company through important milestones that will be achieved by the number of active card customers and order book of potential customers which will impact the value of the common stock as shareholders and investors realize the value of the Prepaid Debit Card Portfolio's and monthly income generated and potential. The real value in a company like ours is in its portfolio of card programs and the consumer base reach available which attracts the fortune 1000 companies to then participate and integrate in global rewards and incentive sponsorships adding favourable value and profit share. There is no industry standard but the typical royalties generated from active prepaid debit cards can range from $.85 to $2.80 monthly (not including retail or wholesale sale) and is based on 10 to 14 transactions monthly depending on the usage of the cards. Management's focus is to attain 100k active cards by mid-year 2011 and attain a royalty base target of $85k to $200k monthly not including new sales or recurring activations. We feel with the current orders on hand that this is very attainable.
