JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- March 21, 2013

Expanding on its leadership and innovation position within mobile financial
services, FIS™ (NYSE: FIS), the world’s largest provider of banking and
payments technology, today announced the pilot of its innovative Cardless Cash
Access solution by Wintrust Financial Corporation. The latest advancement to
the FIS Mobile Wallet platform, delivered in partnership with Paydiant and
Diebold Incorporated, enables consumers to withdraw cash from ATMs using just
a smartphone.

“Consumers are increasingly mobile and rarely leave home without their
smartphone,” said Douglas Brown, senior vice president and general manager,
FIS Mobile Financial Services. “At FIS, we are continuing to invest in
solutions that keep mobile consumers better connected to their finances.
Through Cardless Cash Access, FIS is providing secure innovation that places
the smartphone at the center of the financial transaction. We’re delivering on
our goal of supporting a mobile-centric market. ”

The FIS Mobile Wallet with the new Cardless Cash Access solution securely
authenticates a user on their smartphone. Once authenticated, the user scans
the QR code provided on the ATM screen and selects the account and amount of
the withdrawal directly on their smartphone. The solution delivers an
e-receipt to the smartphone app after cash is dispensed from the ATM. Unlike
mobile cash access models that utilize temporary authorization codes, the FIS
Cardless Cash Access solution utilizes the security within the user app
authentication process and registration of the FIS Mobile Wallet app on the
smartphone, therefore eliminating card skimming risk and fraud incidents for
banks and their customers.

“Wintrust is community banking at heart, so service is our number one goal.
Technology needs to follow that very closely.” said Tom Ormseth, EVP of Retail
Strategy at Wintrust Financial. “Delivering Cardless Cash Access definitely
supports our strategy of providing top quality and innovative services, and
enables us to deliver on our promise to our customers – ‘HAVE IT ALL.’”

Commenting on the expanding role of the mobile wallet, David Albertazzi,
Senior Analyst with Aite Group stated, “Convenience is a critical driver of
consumer satisfaction and loyalty in banking, and cardless access to ATMs is a
convenience that many smartphone owners will take advantage of. It also
represents an important link between the mobile wallet and cash access.”
