Preparation for the Migration to EMV/NFC 
Key Payment Providers Further Solidify and Expand Their Global
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 --  Ingenico, leading
worldwide provider of payment solutions, announced today that Elavon,
a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and a leading
global payments solutions provider, has elected to launch Ingenico's
new Telium2 series countertop and wireless terminals to its customers
in the United States and Puerto Rico. This decision represents
Elavon's strategic move to scale its global relationship with
Ingenico and the regional choice to introduce Ingenico's
market-leading and time-proven secure point-of-sale (POS) technology
in preparation for the migration to EMV chip card and NFC contactless
payments in the U.S. 
"We continue to grow and enhance our strategic, global relationship
with Elavon. Their drive to deliver robust and innovative payment
solutions to customers sets high standards for their partners
throughout the entire value chain. We are pleased that our Telium2
series products have successfully met their stringent quality and
security requirements, and are now an integral part of their U.S.
payment solutions portfolio," commented Thierry Denis, president of
Ingenico, North America. "Built-in product features -- including EMV
chip card, contactless, and NFC mobile acceptance -- provide a solid
foundation for Elavon to add their industry-leading security, loyalty
and value-added solutions that allow customers everywhere to keep up
with rapidly evolving consumer payment choices." 
As part of the product launch in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, Elavon has
successfully completed the Class A certification of Ingenico's
Telium2 iCT2xx and iWL2xx series terminals and software application.
The certification covers the iCT220 and iCT250 countertop terminals.
The iCT220 and iCT250 terminals will be available to Elavon's
customers nationwide as stand-alone countertop solutions or in
conjunction with Ingenico's external iPP220 & iPP320 PIN Pads.  
"Our commitment to delivering secure, innovative and scalable
solutions and services is unmatched in the industry. Elavon is very
selective when choosing the products that we
 market across our global
footprint," said Marianne Johnson, Executive Vice President, Global
Product & Innovation at Elavon. "Ingenico and their Telium2 series
terminals offer a solution that is well suited to our portfolio of
payment services and provides a common global product platform,
backed by responsive support."  
With crisp color screens, multi-media functionality and the fastest
built-in printer ever integrated into a payment device, iCT2xx and
iWL2xx terminals will provide Elavon's customers everywhere with a
solid foundation to offer payment and value-added services to their
customers on a platform that supports EMV, contactless, and NFC
technologies. In addition, the two companies are also leveraging
Ingenico's IngEstate tool, a terminal management platform, which is
successfully used in other regions of the world to provide Elavon
with remote terminal management and support capabilities for Elavon's
Telium installations in the U.S. 
The collaborative relationship between Ingenico and Elavon
successfully spans across multiple regions worldwide. Elavon has
already extensively deployed Ingenico's Telium2 series products with
a single application that can be used on Ingenico's countertop, PIN
Pad, mobile and wireless terminals in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and
across Europe.
