CINCINNATI -- March 13, 2013

Vantiv (NYSE: VNTV), a leading provider of payment processing services and
related technology solutions for merchants and financial institutions of all
sizes, and Education at Work, a 501(c)3 non-profit provider of employment
development services, announced today that they have signed an agreement to
jointly help develop Greater Cincinnati's workforce. Under the agreement,
Vantiv will leverage Education at Work students to serve in its call centers
and will assign them executive-level mentors to help guide their professional
development.

"We're very excited to have entered into a relationship with such a dynamic
financial services company," said David Dougherty, Education at Work's Founder
and CEO. "Vantiv is not only a leader in the payments industry but also in the
community. Our new agreement demonstrates Vantiv's deep commitment to our
region and the future of its college students. We're pleased to have them as a
client of Education at Work, further highlighting the range of services that
we can provide to our client companies."

"Joining with Education at Work is a win-win arrangement," said Charles
Drucker, Chief Executive Officer at Vantiv. "It's not only a win for our
business, but it's a win for Greater Cincinnati college students. Education at
Work provides Vantiv a new source of talent while at the same time giving
college students an opportunity to develop their career skill sets."

The services provided by Education at Work are different from those normally
found in a traditional staff augmentation firm. Employees are put through a
rigorous multi-step screening and selection process prior to interviewing with
the end client in order to assess specific job skills requirements and to
ensure an optimal fit with the client's corporate culture. Students selected
represent the highest caliber of talent attending Greater Cincinnati's
colleges and universities.
