SAN JOSE, Calif. -- February 19, 2013

VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), today announced a comprehensive payment
solutions and services contract with Galeries Lafayette, one of France’s
largest department store chains. The five-year agreement includes managed
services, software, helpdesk and 3,200 of VeriFone’s VX 820 advanced PIN
acceptance devices that support credit, debit and EMV transactions, and
include integrated NFC/contactlesstechnology for alternative payments.

The central component of the VeriFone solution is PAYware Wynid, a managed
services platform that will encompass all Galeries Lafayette payments across
the chain, including cross-border payments from the retailer’s German
operation. Galeries Lafayette will also utilize VeriFone’s encryption and
tokenization services to ensure the most secure payments environment.

“VeriFone was able to provide the most comprehensive payments solution to suit
our needs over the foreseeable future, including encryption and tokenization
of EMV payment transactions,” said Galeries Lafayette Director of Data Systems
Laurent Singer.

“Galeries Lafayette is one of the largest retailers in France -- and operator
of the biggest retail store in Paris with 750 card acceptance stations -- and
represents a tremendous competitive win for VeriFone in France,” said Olivier
Guiot, VeriFone general manager, France. “This demonstrates the appeal that
our services-based approach to payments holds for large retailers.”

VeriFone’s PAYware Wynid provides an end-to-end managed payment service that
consolidates and routes all types of electronic payment transactions. It
enables Galeries Lafayette to manage and host transactions for its German
operations from France, easing certification requirements. The VeriFone VX 820
PIN acceptance solution features a 3.5-inch high-resolution color touch screen
that is consumer-friendly and provides high-impact color graphics to improve
