Energy Caps, Verici DX, Equals and Paypoint

The views expressed in this article are those of its author and not necessarily those of ShareSoc. PM Truss's proposal is a cap on prices, not on overall cost so people with big houses with large gas consumption will still pay more. Fracking is also being permitted to boost local gas production. Truss did not give in to calls for this largess to be funded through a windfall tax. She said this would undermine the national interest by discouraging the very investment we ...

Paypoint Plc (PAY) AGM Report 2015

Today I attended the annual general meeting of Paypoint Plc in central London. There were 2 shareholders present this time round, down from 5 last year but up from 1 from 2013. Paypoint operates electronic payment technologies, which means terminals in shops, via mobile and also online payments systems, which enables people to pay for parking, utilities, transport tickets and mobile top-ups (although the top-up area is in decline as more people move to contracts).

On the 24th July I attended the Annual General Meeting of Paypoint at their offices in Welwyn Garden City. Their offices are in a modern office block and they were quite smart with open plan offices for their call centre staff (who support the large number of retail customers).

LeaderPaypoint Listens to Shareholder Requests

Stephen Day says: Your mention of Paypoint reminds me that I must commend them for listening to a shareholder, namely me. In July I sent an email to the FD Rachel Kentleton asking a question, and I received a prompt and helpful answer. In passing I commented on the lack of a Dividend Information page, and she tasked her team with preparing one, After a few follow-up emails it is now operational. So “well done” to Paypoint. Well done Paypoint!
