BARCELONA -- February 27, 2013

VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), and SK C&C, the Korea-based global IT
services company, announced today they are partnering on deployment of open
interface standards and technology platforms for management of digital wallet
services, acceptance solutions and mobile commerce. The two companies are
currently in deployment activity with several large mobile network operators

SKC&C has adopted VeriFone’s OpenAPI common interface standards that govern
communication between a mobile wallet and a merchant’s acceptance device. The
OpenAPI standards ensure that value-added wallet data such as offers, coupons
and loyalty, are universally accepted and flow seamlessly through merchant
systems without disruption of traditional transactions.

“MNOs are eager to deploy an end-to-end wallet solution, but need standardized
interfaces and technology platforms to manage the complexity of advanced
value-added mobile wallet applications for both consumers and merchants,” said
Paul Rasori, senior vice president of Marketing for VeriFone. “VeriFone
payment solutions and services are widely adopted globally and, combined with
our PAYmedia Mobile Marketing Platform, provide a management solution for SK
C&C’s wallet infrastructure.”

The current deployment projects involve a peer-mode interface to enable an
active dialogue between a mobile wallet and the merchant’s payment acceptance
device. Seamless integration of SK C&C’s wallet solution with VeriFone
technology platforms provides MNOs the ability to more rapidly deploy advanced
mobile wallet services. MNOs are able to implement a variety of payment and
non-payment transactions through the interaction of consumer mobile devices
and merchant acceptance systems.

“With our mobile technology expertise, SK C&C has delivered innovative mobile
commerce solutions to leading global MNOs, merchants, and platform companies.
Our partnership with VeriFone will enable MNOs to rapidly and easily deploy
their mobile commerce services in the market,” said Kim Min Seok, vice
president of SK C&C’s mCommerce division.

VeriFone’s PAYmedia Mobile Marketing Platform connects the independent
ecosystems of issuance and acceptance into one fully integrated environment.
This makes it possible to deliver coupons, promotions and loyalty offers to
consumer mobile devices based on geo-targeting, purchase history and
demographic data, allowing consumers to receive and redeem promotional and
loyalty offers and discounts on their mobile devices at the point of sale.
