REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- January 28, 2014

i2c clients Banco do Brasil Americas and SE Giftcards were each awarded a
Paybefore Award for their innovative prepaid programs. The awards are
presented annually by Paybefore, whose publications are the leading source of
industry information for the global prepaid and emerging payments community.
The companies use i2c's global commerce and prepaid processing platform to
power their programs.

A judging panel comprised of prepaid industry experts selected this year's
winners from a record number of applications. Banco do Brasil Americas won in
the “Better Way” category for using prepaid to achieve significant process
improvements. The bank's multi-currency scholarship disbursement card has
accelerated funds availability for cardholders and simplified the process of
sending and receiving scholarship disbursements globally. SE Giftcards won in
the “Top Digital Dollars” category, which recognized the best virtual or
digital delivery associated with a prepaid program. SE Giftcards is the
program manager for the Zagat Dining Card, a nationwide virtual dining gift

“The Paybefore Awards celebrate innovation and excellence in the prepaid and
emerging payments industry,” said Loraine DeBonis, editor-in-chief of
Paybefore and chair of the judging panel. “The Banco do Brasil Americas and SE
Giftcards programs are great examples of how the latest payments technology
can bring prepaid to new audiences by solving real-world problems for
consumers and organizations.”

Stephan Koukis, senior vice president, Business Advisory Group, at i2c says,
“Congratulations to Banco do Brasil Americas and SE Giftcards on this
significant achievement. i2c is honored to provide the processing technology
that enables these unique consumer experiences.”

Banco do Brasil Americas and SE Giftcards are now contenders for
Best-in-Category distinction, which will be announced at the All Payments Expo
on March 4 in Las Vegas. Best-in-Category winners will be determined partially
by votes from the public. Votes may be cast at paybefore.com until February
