Emida Named One Of Intele-CardNews’ 10 To Watch In 2006

FOOTHILL RANCH, California and MIAMI, Florida, January 6, 2006 (Business Wire) – Intele-CardNewsmagazine, the premier publication servicing the prepaid marketplace, has released its annual 10 to Watch list. ICN editors made the selection of 10 companies based on specific criteria such as innovative services and products, strategic acquisitions, steady and methodical growth over time, attention to customer satisfaction and creative marketing approaches. The entire list and full coverage are included in the January 2006 issue.

Emida Technologies, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, is among the list of honorees.

“We are thrilled to have been selected, especially in an industry that is ripe with forward-thinking, highly successful companies – the competition is stiff. It means a great deal to us that Intele-CardNews would honor us with a position on their list,” said Dennis Andrews, Emida CEO.

“This year, companies selected represent a great cross section of the prepaid market,” says Theresa Ward, editor-in-chief of Intele-CardNews. “It’s always difficult making the final cut, and we look forward to following the progress of each of these companies in the coming year.” The list includes master distributors, card printers, wireless service providers, providers of VoIP services, electronic payment and money transfer specialists, bill pay specialists and prepaid calling card issuers.

Since the 10 to Watch tribute began in 1997, ICN has identified up-and-coming companies that have gone on to become major players in the prepaid market.
