Visa (V) recently announced the opening of the Myanmar market to ATM and POS acceptance through their licensing agreements with Co-operative Bank, Kanbawza Bank, and Myanmar Overseas Bank. This represents significant progress for Myanmar's electronic payments infrastructure as it provides the country with a platform to participate in the global financial system. By joining the Visa network, the banks agree to adopt Visa's global security standards for electronic payment. Phillip Kumnick, Visa's Head of Global Acquirer Processing, said "For the core technology and operating systems we are working with Planet Payment." As a result of the recent success in Myanmar, Visa and Planet Payment (PLPM) are working on opportunities to target the deployment of the managed service to additional developing markets in support of traditional ATM and POS acceptance as well as developing support for mobile point of sale.

05:31 EDTVVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visa’s holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visa’s investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.
