"This is an investment in growth," said James Byler, LinQpay CEO. "The acquisition gives Stakool, Inc. a solid footprint both in the rapidly expanding mobile payment and e-commerce payment segments. We believe the combination creates a unique opportunity to allow us to better serve the industry and positions Stakool, Inc. for future growth and new business opportunities."

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The agreement is subject to approvals by the boards of directors of both Stakool, Inc. and LinQpay. The transaction is expected to close in late July 2010.
