An official source in Vodafone Egypt asserted that ‘Gameeya’ new service is one of money transfer via mobile phone services, noting the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) thought that it is a new product, the company did not get the approval before launching the product in the market, so Vodafone is seeking now to get CBE’s approval to launch the service. Housing and Development Bank (HDB) which contracted with Vodafone Egypt for providing money transfer services will call CBE to clarify the quality of service and not skipped with the criteria stated previously by the early of next week, the source said.
Google Inc's first-quarter revenue fell short of Wall Street targets and margins narrowed as the price of its ads continued to decline, underscoring the challenges Internet companies face as the world shifts toward mobile devices. Shares of Google were down 3 percent to $539.80 in afterhours trading on Wednesday, after initially sliding roughly 6 percent on the news. The number of "paid clicks" by consumers on Google's ads increased by 26 percent in the first quarter, disappointing some analysts who had hoped for stronger volume growth. And the average "cost per click" declined 9 percent, extending a downward trend as mobile advertising, typically cheaper than traditional online ads, make up a bigger slice of its business. The world's largest search engine, along with Facebook Inc and Twitter Inc, which are due to report financial results in coming weeks, are revamping their products and advertising business to account for smartphones. "It's an average quarter from a great company," said BGC Partners analyst Colin Gillis. "It's the same old story. Paid clicks were a little lighter than people might have hoped, CPC declines were a little higher than people would have liked, expenses continued to rise." Operating income slipped to 32 percent of revenue on an adjusted basis, from 34 percent in the year-ago period.
