CINCINNATI - June 19, 2013 -Vantiv,  Inc. (NYSE: VNTV), a leading provider  of 
payment processing services and related technology solutions for merchants and
financial institutions of all  sizes, released today  its primary research  on 
Omnicommerce and  the  Customer Experience.  The  Company will  hold  a  live 
webinar detailing these findings today from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.

"Our research shows  that consumers  are increasingly  seeking integrated  and 
consistent 'Omni-channel' shopping  experiences online,  in-store and  through 
mobile devices," said Moira  Tamayo, senior vice  president of marketing.  "To 
make  purchase  transaction  experiences  seamless,  merchants  and  financial 
institutions must provide an omnicommerce purchase experience that  integrates 
rewards,  security,   financial  management   tools  and   other   value-added 
functionality."

Vantiv and  its  research  partner Mercator  Advisory  Group  conduct  primary 
research on payments  trends in the  United States. A  cross-section of  U.S. 
consumers, merchants and  financial institutions are  asked details about  how 
they use payment services and how they expect to do so in the future. Today's
webinar and white paper  release will fully  detail these findings.  Selected 
data and insights from Vantiv's research are outlined below:
