Optimal Payments To Buy Skrill Group
« on: March 23, 2015, 03:10:47 PM »

I would like to thank Sportoboy for the heads up.

http://www.rttnews.com/2473380/optimal-payments-to-buy-skrill-group-for-enterprise-value-of-1-2-bln.aspx

All comments are welcome.
I asked both managers that cooperate with us, from Skrill and NT, but they both refused to comment.

That would be an interesting merge. My contact inside one of the brands says, there is something in the air and is expected in the 6 months or so. As soon as I get more detailed and publishable info I shall post a blog article regarding that, so stay tuned.

Also one must ask a few questions before this happens:

1) Will it be beneficial for the customers or not (my presumption will be negative)
2) Will the brands keep their quasi-unique nature or become fully integrated under one of them.

In general I would say this is not the best news for the community.

Will keep an eye on this, thanks for the info.

Provided the fact of some 'squealer' behaviours by Skrill (reporting account history, transaction history etc. to bookies), every change of owner shall be considered a chance for a more player-friendly e-wallet procedures...

The deal is expected to close by the third quarter of 2015.

I assume it might be similar to Mastercard/Visa deal - they link their payment structure but stay independend towards clients

Monopoly is never good for the low and user/customer...most points already raised by arbuser, 
best case scenarios are at a first glance :

1- for both processors to continue their enterprises as it is but under one roof
2- some new BIG player in the market. there is only PAYPAL out there atm big enough.

btw...im talking about OUR interests here..cause PAYPAL is big enough worldwide...but not in the gambling industry...

I hope they keep their independence, at least some independence.

If you take a look at the poker industry Poker Stars purchased Full Tilt but the sites did not merge. In addition, they added free inter-site transfers. It would be great if  Net & Skrill did the same.
From my point of view Skrill is a great money management tool, even if you don't gamble, but I am concerned that it will be less so in the future.

I m informing you that I collect information from various sources in regards to this matter.
I noticed a very strange ''detail'' about Skrill. Skill has a debt of 256 million euros. I can't understand how the heck you produce debt in a business like this.
It can't be advertisement because Skrill is advertised almost nowhere.
It can't be salaries because salaries were smashed 2 years ago plus many people lost their jobs.
It can't be affiliates, because affiliates are paid with a portion of total profit per transaction.

Anyone with a good idea?

I believe that this debt made Skrill ''softer'' and encouraged it's owners to sell.
I m also examining the + and - of this transaction, and I see Optimal Payments doing a colpo grosso here. More soon.

It can't be this either. They work with even bigger margins with PSC.
