Outerwall Inc was incorporated in Delaware on October 12, 1993. The Company is a provider of automated retail solutions offering convenient products and services that benefit consumers and drive incremental retail traffic and revenue for retailers. The Company's automated retail includes its redbox segment where consumers can rent or purchase movies from self-service kiosks and its Coin segment where consumers can convert their coin to cash or stored value products at coin-counting self-service kiosks. The Company's New Ventures segment is focused on identifying, evaluating, building, and growing self-service concepts in the marketplace. The redbox business faces competition from many other providers, including those using other distribution channels. The coinstar business faces competition from supermarkets, banks and other companies that purchase and operate coin-counting equipment from companies such as ScanCoin, Cummins-Allison Corporation and others. The ecoATM business faces competition from companies whose primary business consists of the purchase of used electronics, including online retailers and web sites such as Gazelle, as well as brick and mortar stores which buy back used electronics. The business of the Company is subject to federal, state, local and foreign laws and government regulation.
