CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 2, 2012) -


DirectCash Payments Inc. (TSX:DCI) ("DirectCash") is pleased to announce the pricing of its previously announced offering of $125 million principal amount of 7-year senior unsecured notes (the "Notes"). The Notes will be priced at par, will bear interest at a rate of 8.125% per annum and will mature on August 8, 2019. The Notes are being offered in each Province of Canada and in the United States on a private placement basis through a syndicate of underwriters led by BMO Capital Markets. Closing is expected to occur on or about August 8, 2012.

The Notes to be issued will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act"), as amended, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements. The Notes will be offered and sold in the United States solely to "qualified institutions buyers" pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act or to non U.S. persons in offshore transactions in accordance with Regulation S of the Securities Act. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in the United States or in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
