2019 Highlights

2019 was one of the finest strategic, operational and financial years in Global Payments’ history. We made the following key achievements on the three pillars of our long-term growth strategy: 

Software-Driven Payments Focus

  • Closed the largest merger in our history with TSYS in September 2019, establishing Global Payments as the preeminent pure play payments technology company worldwide. The landmark transaction accelerated our technology-enabled, software-driven strategy across integrated payments, owned software in both merchant and issuing and ecommerce and omnichannel capabilities. 
  • Global Payments reached and closed an agreement to purchase Québec-based bank Desjardins’ existing portfolio of approximately 40,000 merchants and executed an exclusive referral partnership to provide acquiring solutions to its clients for the next decade. Desjardins selected Global Payments as a direct result of the breadth and depth of our technology payment solutions, local and global expertise, comprehensive distribution and modern architecture and infrastructure. 

Full Omnichannel Capabilities

  • Completed the rollout of our Unified Commerce Platform (or UCP), positioning Global Payments to seamlessly combine the virtual and physical worlds to serve the most complex merchant needs in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Asia Pacific. 
  • Our UCP capabilities and ability to offer payment solutions through a single integration in more markets than our peers led to a partnership with Citi to offer payment acceptance services to its multinational banking clients on an omnichannel basis. We are now live with Citi in the United States and United Kingdom. 

Faster Growth Market Exposure

  • Announced expansion of our joint venture with Erste Bank into its home country of Austria. Together we now provide leading payments solutions in five faster growth markets in Central Europe, including the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, in addition to Austria. 
  • Signed an agreement to enter a new joint venture via our Netspend business with CaixaBank-owned MoneyToPay, which provides prepaid payment solutions to consumers, corporations, governments and other institutions across multiple markets in Europe. 
  • Launched a new joint venture with our long-standing partner HSBC in Mexico. HSBC is well positioned in Mexico serving retail and small and large corporate banking clients throughout all 32 federal entities of Mexico with a strong presence in the most important economic centers of Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara. Together we will bring leading payments technologies to merchant customers in Mexico as we have successfully done worldwide.
