ATLANTA, July 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — InComm, a leading prepaid product and transaction services company, today announced it has acquired the Hong Kong prepaid distribution business of ValuAccess, a leading provider of stored value programs, loyalty programs and transaction processing to Asian retailers.
Prior to the acquisition, InComm and ValuAccess achieved marked success in the Hong Kong market through a partnership formed in 2012 that combined InComm’s global reach with ValuAccess’s proven insight into the needs of the Hong Kong consumer and retail markets. The partnership offered local consumers a suite of products including prepaid cards, gift cards and other stored-value programs while increasing sales and foot traffic at participating retailers. This ongoing success and the significant growth in the business ultimately led to this transaction.

“InComm has been a great partner to ValuAccess over the years,” said Alistair Gordon, CEO of ValuAccess Limited. “We will continue to support InComm by distributing our local stored value gift card products through their retail distribution partners and providing local processing support.”
ValuAccess was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Hong Kong. The company provides creative branded stored value, gift card and loyalty programs for the fast-growing Asia Pacific market. For more information, visit http://www.valuaccess.com.
