"We are pleased to report continued strong growth in our mobile payments business unit which is producing the company's most profitable business on a dollar for dollar basis," said Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of TIO Networks. "Mobile growth in addition to strong growth in our Canadian wireless payments business coupled with declines experienced with our largest biller partner reduced the percent of TIO's business that is attributable to one customer to record lows.  TIO finished the quarter in the month of January with approx. 36% of its net margin being sourced from one bill payment partner representing an 8% decrease from one year ago".

We would like to highlight to last week's mobile pay win with Mobilicity as a strong follow-up to our utility mobile pay activities earlier this year. Also, as disclosed in a separate communications release today, we are very pleased with the performance of our Wallet-based initiatives to date; we have witnessed impressive growth in engagement from our Wallet members, with many customers logging in multiple times per month to check their payment balances and perform other activities prior to making a payment. We will continue to actively seek and implement new business in our mobile and wallet lines of business.

A conference call to discuss the results will be held on Wednesday March 27, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. EST. To participate please dial, (416) 644-3426 in Toronto or Toll free, 1-800-731-5319 and request the TIO Networks Conference.
