Payments company iSignthis (ASX: ISX) jumped around in morning trade, after a rough week which has seen the stock slump around 50 per cent following a report from Ownership Matters questioning the company’s corporate governance and bonus structure.

ISX responded to an ASX query this morning where it said the report was “inconsistent with public disclosures made by the company on the ASX platform”.
