Ezeatm Hits The Race Track In Support Of Women At Bathurst

Ezeatm (ASX: EZA) can be seen flying around the track at this weekend's V8 Ute Series at Mt Panorama, Bathurst with the company agreeing to sponsor Hayley "Swanny" Swanson.

Swanson was just the fourth female to drive a V8 Ute in the program's 12 year history when she debuted at the Tasmanian round in March 2012.

Todd Zani, chief executive officer and fellow driver in the Ezeatm Racing Team V8 Ute, commented: "Ezeatm is proud to support Hayley and is excited to assist a woman in a sport that is heavily dominated by males.

"Ezeatm has a proud history of supporting women and has a female workforce of greater than 40% with a number of these in senior management and support roles.

"We were happy to assist after Hayley's original sponsor could not continue to support her. It's a shame, given her talent; I would have thought that with the increased number of female CEOs in business today that such support would have been easier to source for Hayley."

Swanson joined a list of female drivers including Danielle Agiro who raced in the V8 Ute Series in 2003, Leanne Tander who teamed up with Thirsty Camels Craig Dontas for the 2010 "Ten Years of Legends Race" in Adelaide, and Lauren Gray who stepped behind the wheel of the Brock Race Engineering Holden at Phillip Island in 2010.

She will be joined in this round by Amber Anderson, who is making her debut.

Swanson is studying a Bachelor of Law in Melbourne and in 2011 was one of three female drivers who took part in Channel Seven's Reality TV Show, Shannons Super Car Showdown, which was hosted by former V8 Ute driver Grant Denyer and V8 Supercar drivers The Kelly Brothers.

Bathurst is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend and fittingly, while Ezeatm has been in the ATM industry for over 12 years, it too will celebrate a milestone as it marks its first anniversary as a public company on Sunday.

Ezeatm is one of the best performing IPOs of the last 12 months, with the company currently trading at $0.40 - which is double the $0.20 IPO price. The company listed in October 2011 after raising $3.5 million.

The company recently clinched a five year services agreement with First Data for the provision of ATM related services - which are expected to deliver cost savings.

Ezeatm is now the #1 Australian owned Independent ATM Deployer and also a Switch and Distributor of ATM Products.

The company is the exclusive distributor of the cashPod ATM range and has customised ATMs for the Australian and Indonesian markets, with the company recently announcing a historic deal to supply 16,000 ATMs to Indonesia.
