Utilizing its AtLAS Advanced Landmark Acquisition System, Gecko's SMS Application enhances SMS messages adding location information based on well-known geographic related interest points. Location information is optional and can be set manually.

The SMS Application is part of Gecko's broad marketing strategy re-enforcing its position as world leader in the provision of well known local landmarks. Due diligence has revealed over 50% of current users are in the rapidly growing emerging markets of Asia and Africa. Market penetration is particularly strong in India, the Philippines, Kenya, Indonesia, Malaysia and Nigeria.

Mark Collins-Cope, head of the Private Trading Systems IT team retained by First Corporation to audit Gecko's AtLAS Advanced Landmark Acquisition System, states, "The SMS Application's utilization is growing fast, particularly in emerging markets where map coverage is poor, or there is no local culture of map reading. The SMS Application is quite popular in India, one of the early adopters."

The audit of Gecko's SMS Application is intended to augment First Corporation's due diligence process further accelerating the acquisition of their 10% equity stake in Gecko.
