Global Payments Inc. provides payment solutions for merchants, value-added resellers, enterprise software providers, financial institutions, government agencies, multi-national corporations, and independent sales organizations (ISOs) located throughout North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and Brazil. Segments The company operates in two segments, North America Merchant Services and International Merchant Services. North America Merchant Services segment North America Merchant Services segment includes operations in the United States and Canada. In the United States, the company sells its services via a direct sales force utilizing referral partners of agent banks and trade associations, integrated payment technology, agent and enterprise software providers and value added reseller (VAR) referral arrangements, ISOs, as well as proprietary telesales groups. Direct Sales: The company’s direct sales channel receives qualified leads from agent banks and trade association referral partners for various mid-sized to large merchants with annual bankcard volume averaging above $300,000. The company’s merchant portfolio is also expanded through targeted campaigns and other lead-generating activities by its direct sales force. Integrated Payment Solutions: The company’s integrated payment solutions channel, which includes Accelerated Payment Technologies (APT) and Payment Processing, Inc. (PayPros), sells integrated payment technologies to approximately 60 vertical markets. PayPros, based in California, is a provider of fully-integrated payment solutions for small-to-medium sized merchants in the United States. PayPros delivers its products and services through a network of technology-based enterprise software partners to vertical markets that are complementary to the markets served by Accelerated Payment Technologies. Independent Sales Organizations: The company’s ISO channel targets various merchant types with typical annual bankcard volumes of $150,000 or less. ISOs contract with the company to provide processing and other services depending on the ISOs' requirements. Gaming and Check Services: As part of its direct merchant service offering, the company offers a comprehensive suite of cash access solutions to the gaming vertical market. These solutions include both traditional and electronic check cashing, credit and debit card cash advance and other services specific to this market. The company’s VIP LightSpeed proprietary software platform allows customers of casinos in U.S. and Canada fast access to cash with high limits so that gaming establishments can increase the flow of money to their gaming floors and reduce risk. The company also offers its merchant customers check verification and guarantee service. The majority of check services involve providing check guarantee services for checks received by merchants. Under the guarantee service, when a merchant receives a check in payment for goods and services, the transaction is submitted and analyzed by the company. The company either approves or declines the check for warranty coverage under its guarantee service. If the company approves the check for warranty coverage and the merchant accepts the check, the merchant would either deposit the check in its bank account or, as in the majority of instances, process it for settlement through the company's electronic check acceptance service. Indirect Merchant Services: In the indirect merchant services channel, the company provides merchant services to financial institutions and a limited number of ISOs that, in turn, resell its products and services. International Merchant Services segment International Merchant Services segment has operations in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. The company’s business in Europe is primarily located in the United Kingdom, Spain, the Republic of Malta, the Czech Republic and the Russian Federation. The company’s operations in the Asia-Pacific region include the following 11 countries and territories: Brunei, China, Hong Kong, India, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Taiwan. The company has a direct sales force in
