INGENICO : WITH THE ACQUISITION OF 55% OF FUJIAN LANDI, INGENICO BECOMES THE NUMBER ONE PLAYER IN CHINA

NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE, PARIS--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - Ingenico, the world leader in transaction and secure payment solutions, purchased 55% of Fujian Landi's share capital, one of the leading Chinese transaction solution provider and Point-of-Sale manufacturer.

Under the terms of the transaction, the acquisition is paid in cash for a total amount of US$17.05 million (approximately EUR 11 million).

The combination of both companies creates a strong player in the Asian market, with the largest market share in China. Privately owned, Fujian Landi, based in Fuzhou and present in 23 regions across China, has been a pioneer in payment terminals in the PRC since its creation in 1992. The group posted revenues of approximately EUR 18 million in 2007, on a dynamic and fast growing market (1.5 million terminals installed). The global Chinese market has a huge potential growth driven by an increased demand for non-cash payment solutions and necessary equipment for new merchants and the country's banking industry, experiencing strong competition.

Philippe Lazare, Chief Executive Officer of Ingenico, said: "This acquisition is a significant step in our strategy to enter high- growth markets. Our partnership with Landi will provide Ingenico with the leading position on the Chinese market together with a paramount commercial platform in the PRC for the Asian continent. Our combined product ranges will target both Chinese and North Eastern Asian markets, such as Korea. "

Mr. Cai, Chief Executive Officer of Fujian Landi, declared "Our company shall benefit from a deeper and wider range of products, and will have access to further export markets. With this transaction, Ingenico will benefit from an improved access to the Chinese market, with increased local customer support. We believe that this successful cooperation will pave the way for a brighter future for both companies in Asia".
