Nets completes the acquisition of the merchant acquiring business from OP Financial Group in Finland
Nets today closed the previously announced agreement to acquire OP's merchant acquiring business (see company announcement 08/2017).
The business consists of approximately 15,000 merchant contracts with an underlying annual card turnover of around DKK 37 billion from Visa and MasterCard transactions in Finland.
The agreement includes a 10-year strategic partnership with a referral arrangement for merchant acquiring and point-of-sale services covering Finland and the Baltic region. The partnership will provide OP's customers with a wider range of merchant payment solutions, while Nets will benefit from OP's strong brand recognition and distribution to merchants in Finland. The services will be operated under the Nets brand.
As previously announced the total consideration consists of an initial cash payment of DKK 179 million and an expected deferred payment on a discounted basis of around DKK 45 million, dependent on how the acquired business develops over the contract period. The acquisition does not change the guidance for 2017.
