International Track 200

The London-based online payment provider says 25m people use its technology. It allows anyone with an email address to send and receive money online securely and cost-effectively. Ebay is among those offering it as a payment option. Investcorp bought a 51% stake in 2007 for a reported £72m. Growth has come from overseas expansion in mainland Europe and America. Now led by chief executive Siegfried Heimgaertner, overseas sales grew 30% a year, from £32.9m in 2009 to £56m in 2011.
