REDWOOD CITY, CA and MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 --  i2c,
Inc., a provider of payment processing and emerging commerce
solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Banco
do Brasil Americas to provide processing services for reloadable
prepaid products. Banco do Brasil, Latin America's largest bank

cards that students can use to make purchases in their local
currencies.

range of prepaid products, including payroll, teen and benefit
disbursement cards, to consumers in the United States.

process while enabling a common customer experience across different
continents."

support options in Portuguese and English to Banco do Brasil Americas
customers. Live customer service in those languages will be provided
by i2c through its call center in Panama City, Panama.

of convenient prepaid products, it is important that our partners
