EVERTEC, Inc. (NYSE:EVTC) ("Evertec" or the "Company") today announced
that Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Peter
J.S. Smith has decided to leave the Company effective September 6, 2018

"I personally want to thank Peter for his many contributions to Evertec.
He leaves the company in a stronger financial position and we wish him
success in his new endeavors. I have great confidence in Joaquín and our

rebuilding, our expanding opportunities in Latin America, and our solid
execution," said Mac Schuessler, President and Chief Executive Officer.

search for a successor CFO. The Company plans to evaluate internal and
external candidates.

Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking
statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other
factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements
of Evertec to be materially different from any future results,
performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking
statements. Statements preceded by, followed by, or that otherwise
include the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends,"

Various factors that could cause actual future results and other future
events to differ materially from those estimated by management include,

Popular for a significant portion of revenue; our ability to renew our
client contracts on terms favorable to us; the effectiveness of our risk
management procedures; our dependence on our processing systems,
technology infrastructure, security systems and
fraudulent-payment-detection systems, and the risk that our systems may
experience breakdowns or fail to prevent security breaches or fraudulent
transfers; our ability to develop, install and adopt new technology; a
decreased client base due to consolidations in the banking and
financial-services industry; the credit risk of our merchant clients,
for which we may also be liable; the continuing market position of the
ATH® network; reduction in consumer confidence leading to decreased
consumer spending; the Company's dependence on credit card associations;
regulatory limitations on our activities, including the potential need
to seek regulatory approval to consummate transactions, due to our
relationship with Popular and our role as a service provider to
financial institutions; changes in the regulatory environment and
changes in international, legal, tax, political, administrative or
economic conditions; the geographical concentration of the Company's
business in Puerto Rico; operating an international business in multiple
regions with potential political and economic instability; increased
compliance risks associated with operating an international business;
operating in countries and counterparties that put us at risk of
violating U.S. sanctions laws; our ability to execute our expansion and
acquisition strategies; our ability to protect our intellectual property
rights; our ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; our
ability to comply with federal, state, and local regulatory
requirements; evolving industry standards; the Company's high level of
indebtedness and restrictions contained in the Company's debt
agreements; and the Company's ability to generate sufficient cash to
service the Company's indebtedness and to generate future profits.

well as those risks set forth under the headings "Forward-Looking
