Share:

NCR
Corporation
(NYSE:NCR) today announced a definitive agreement to
acquire Allentown, Pa.-based JetPay (NASDAQ:JTPY), a provider of
end-to-end payment processing and Human Capital Management solutions.

The transaction will be a cash tender offer of $5.05 per JetPay share,
which represents a multiple of 2.9 times 2018 consensus revenue forecast
of $63.4 million. The purchase price is approximately $184 million and
will be financed with a combination of cash on hand and existing
capacity under NCR's revolving credit facility. The offer has been
approved by each company's board of directors.

This acquisition will enable NCR to integrate a cloud-based payments
platform into its enterprise point-of-sale (POS) solutions for retail
and hospitality industries. It also accelerates NCR's strategy of
increasing recurring revenue growth and expanding margins by enhancing
its mix of software and services.

"The acquisition of JetPay is a key, strategic initiative that will
enable NCR to create a full, end-to-end integrated payments offering for
its enterprise-wide POS customers," said NCR President and Chief
Executive Officer, Michael D. Hayford. "Enabling payments as part of our
transactions is part of our long-term strategy to create integrated
value for our clients."

"JetPay has always focused on taking great care of our customers,
creating value for our stockholders, delivering innovative solutions,
and expanding our market reach," said Diane Faro, Chief Executive
Officer, JetPay. "This combination dramatically accelerates our
capabilities across these initiatives. NCR's global footprint, brand
recognition and track record of innovation will help us accelerate our
strategic objectives and create even more value for our customers."

"NCR's acquisition of JetPay reflects an important trend in
consolidation in the payments ecosystem. This acquisition allows NCR to
couple stickier, feature-rich POS and payment acceptance applications
with payment processing," said Rivka Gewirtz Little, Research Director,
Worldwide Payment Strategies, IDC. "Additionally, both NCR and JetPay
have provided services to the SMB market where retailers are likely to
be open for the adoption of a unified POS and payments processing
offering. This consolidated offering means maintaining simpler
relationships with fewer vendors without compromising on features."

The transaction is anticipated to close by year-end, subject to
regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. The two
companies anticipate a smooth transition for customers, channel partners
and employees.

Two of JetPay's major stockholders, Flexpoint Ford, a private equity
investment firm that specializes in the financial services and
healthcare industries, and Larry Stone, a longstanding executive in the
payment processing industry, have agreed to tender their shares in
support of the transaction.

Financial Technology Partners LP and FTP Securities LLC acted as the
financial and strategic advisor to the Special Committee of the Board of
Directors of JetPay and Dechert LLP acted as legal advisors.

BofA Merrill Lynch acted as the financial and strategic advisor to the
Board of Directors of NCR Corporation in connection with the transaction.
