VISA to Acquire CyberSource to Accelerate eCommerce Growth

22 aprilie 2010

Visa and CyberSource Corporation announced yesterday that they have entered into a definitive agreement for Visa to purchase CyberSource, a leading provider of electronic payment, risk management and payment security solutions to online merchants at a price of $26.00 per share, or total consideration of approximately $2.0 billion to be paid with cash on hand.

CyberSource is an established industry leader that plays a role in processing approximately 25 percent of all eCommerce dollars transacted in the United States.  The company serves more than 295,000 merchants through its CyberSource and Authorize.Net branded solutions.  CyberSource clients include British Airways, Home Depot, Facebook, Google and many small businesses.

The acquisition of CyberSource will result in a compelling combination whose assets and expertise are expected to drive long-term growth by:

  • Accelerating the growth of the eCommerce category thereby also increasing the usage of Visa debit, prepaid and credit products for online purchases.
  • Drawing on Visa’s financial institution relationships and global presence to more rapidly drive international expansion of CyberSource’s products and services.  Today the majority of CyberSource’s revenues are generated in the United States, leaving tremendous opportunity for global growth.
  • Building on CyberSource’s relationships with merchants to expand the adoption and enhance the functionality of other Visa eCommerce solutions such as Rightcliq.
  • Delivering best-in-class fraud management services to accelerate adoption of CyberSource solutions.
  • Increasing adoption of CyberSource’s secure payment data hosting solutions to address a growing merchant need.

„Online commerce continues to grow rapidly, and this acquisition will enable Visa to offer new and enhanced services that will better meet the growing demand among merchants globally for robust, secure online payment processing capabilities which in turn will grow the entire eCommerce category,” said Joseph W. Saunders, Chairman and CEO of Visa Inc.  „With CyberSource, we are adding a new suite of leading eCommerce capabilities and experience in addressing eCommerce merchant needs. And, as eCommerce increasingly migrates to mobile devices, we believe the combination of Visa and CyberSource technology and services will position Visa to lead in mobile eCommerce.”
