Established in 2005 and regulated by the Monetary
Authority of Singapore (MAS) under the Payment Services Act 2019, MC Payment holds
a major payment institution licence and is a Singapore-based, online-to-offline
(O2O) financial services technology company with a fully integrated platform and
with a focus on servicing merchants in the retail, transportation and food and
beverage industries.

The proposed acquisition of MC Payment is expected
to be completed on 18 February 2021. ZICO Capital is the Sponsor and Financial
Adviser in respect of the Proposed RTO and Evolve Capital Advisory is the
financial adviser to MC Payment.

The Company is of the view that MC Payment’s listing
comes at an opportune time, with digital payments surging in Southeast Asia amidst
the rise in online and e-commerce transactions, in light of safe-distancing
measures imposed by respective government and general public’s concerns over
the COVID-19 outbreak. The Group retains a competitive edge with its accessibility,
omni-channel unified commerce capabilities and ability to leverage on its
platform for additional business enhancing value-added services, leveraging on
its position as one of the few licensed payment providers with a regional
presence and a scalable payment infrastructure.

Currently, MC Payment has a presence in four
countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand – with ambitions to
become a regional player. With digital payments in ASEAN expected to triple to
US$1.5 trillion (S$2 trillion) by 2030[1],
the Group is well-placed to capitalise on this significant and growing market
opportunity, given its established infrastructure and expanding geographical footprint.

Future growth avenues for the Group include
penetrating new geographical markets through mergers and acquisitions, joint
ventures and/or franchises, developing new technology and other payment
solutions, as well as rolling out new value-added services for merchants, to
boost customer retention and expand its customer base.

“We’re expecting a robust growth
trajectory for the Southeast Asian payments industry, following a surge in
digitisation, spurred by increased access to 5G mobile technology, blockchain
and AI, coupled with the rapid rise of e-commerce. We look forward to an
exciting future in the digital payments industry, one that is filled with immense
possibilities and opportunities,”
said
MC Payment Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Koh.
