Highlights Since Last Earnings Release
VeriFone announced a partnership with Google and top retailers to deploy Google Wallet using VeriFone’s near field communication (“NFC”)-enabled point-of-sale systems to power more engaging and consumer friendly transactions. The trials are occurring throughout the U.S. at leading retailers including American Eagle Outfitters, Foot Locker, Macy’s and Toys “R” Us. VeriFone’s broad retail presence, security infrastructure and brand recognition are keys to the success of this mobile payment offering. VeriFone believes that if the trials lead to wide scale NFC deployment, its revenue could be boosted for the next several years by $100 to $150 million per year in the U.S. and even more internationally.
VeriFone announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Destiny Electronic Commerce (Pty) Ltd., trading as CSC, a South Africa-based electronic payments solutions provider. Headquartered in Johannesburg, CSC is a leading provider of secure payment technologies, services and solutions at the point of sale. South Africa is a very attractive market for VeriFone because of its highly developed infrastructure yet growth potential as an emerging economy. The acquisition will provide a base on which to expand VeriFone’s Africa business into the company’s next $100 million market. The acquisition is expected to close this summer subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
VeriFone and MICROS Systems, Inc., the premier provider in the hospitality systems market, announced a solution to incorporate smart mobile devices with restaurant management systems to accommodate NFC-activated payments at the table as well as redemption of electronic coupons and promotions. Central to the integrated solution is the VeriFone PAYware Mobile Enterprise mobile POS system, which adapts smartphones and wireless PDAs to securely accept payment transactions and utilizes VeriFone services to interface with MICROS table management and order management systems as well as the card payment networks. PAYware Mobile Enterprise incorporates a PCI-approved PIN debit keypad, which allows merchants to leverage dramatically lower transaction costs, as well as a 2D bar code scanner for tasks such as inventory control.
VeriFone announced two compelling PAYMEDIA offerings:
  • PAYMEDIA for VeriFone’s PCI 2.0-approved Secure PumpPAY solution for pay-at-the-pump. PAYMEDIA delivers an entertaining and engaging mix of content and advertising to enhance the customer’s experience at the gas pump while generating profits for convenience operators. PAYMEDIA for Secure PumpPAY is driven by the VeriFone Digital Network (VNET), currently playing in more than 10,000 taxi cabs throughout the United States and the United Kingdom. VNET provides consumers with an engaging blend of news, weather, and lifestyle programming while also delivering targeted advertisements and promotions. Secure PumpPAY provides a very cost effective way for fuel retailers to upgrade existing fuel pumps to full PCI 2.0 approval.
  • PAYMEDIA Solutions, a comprehensive, subscription-based offering that provides small to medium-sized merchants with payment solutions and access to payment-enabled media at the checkout counter, including the integration of online services such as digital couponing, loyalty, location-based social media and value-added services. As a turnkey solution, PAYMEDIA enables ISOs, acquirers and other resellers to equip merchants with a true “intelligent checkout.” VeriFone has established partnerships to bring the services of MocaPay and vPromos to the retail checkout through PAYMEDIA and will announce additional services throughout the year. PAYMEDIA will be available beginning in June through select resellers.
