INGENICO GROUP TO ACQUIRE GLOBALCOLLECT
Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe (WCAS), majority owner of global payment service provider GlobalCollect, will sell that company to Ingenico Group, best known as the world’s largest manufacturer of POS terminals, for $1.11 billion (€820 million). The sale is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year.
WCAS, a private equity firm, purchased GlobalCollect from private equity firm General Atlantic in 2010. Terms of that sale were not disclosed.
Ingenico Group has been expanding beyond POS terminals for years with the aim of generating revenue from all channels — in-store, online, and mobile. Last year Ingenico acquired pan-European payment service provider Ogone, which focuses on small and midsized businesses, for $489 million from private equity firm Summit Partners. Its other businesses include easycash (now called Ingenico Payment Services), an in-store point-of-sale payment service and loyalty program provider purchased in 2009, and Roam, a mobile commerce platform provider, purchased in multiple transactions beginning in 2009.
GlobalCollect handles online payments from global card brands as well as domestic-market-only cards and noncard methods that originate in more than 170 countries. In addition to providing a single interface to other payment providers, and access to 150 means of payment, GlobalCollect also provides settlement directly with a growing number of merchants.
GlobalCollect earns 59% of its revenue from North America and Asia. Ogone, Ingenico Payment Services and GlobalCollect combined will generate one-third of Ingenico Group’s annual revenue.
