French term or phrase: Nusbo
"J'ai reflechi a tes nusbo hier" - Apologies for the French, but I am translating messages sent between traders on the financial markets.

Does anyone have an idea what the slang word "nusbo" might mean here?
Does it mean "news"?

Thank you!

Verlan, French slang where the sylabs in words are reversed. It's in the name... verlan for envers...

In this case, nusbo for bonus. Works for traders...
