FleetCor Acquires Fuel Card Company In Russia

Stocks in this article: FLT

FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FLT), a leading independent global provider of fuel cards and workforce payment products to businesses, today announced that it has acquired a leading Russian fuel card company. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquired company is the Russian leader in fuel card systems, and serves major oil clients, and hundreds of independent fuel card issuers. Its technology is “the standard” in Russia, and this compatibility allows issuers to share their retail network, thereby, expanding the reach of their networks. FleetCor estimates that over 30% of all commercial fuel purchased in Russia is processed using this acquired company’s system.

“We are delighted to announce this Russian acquisition. The Russia market has great potential, with two-thirds of all commercial fuel still purchased with cash and vouchers. This asset strengthens our already attractive existing position and further signals our commitment to developing markets,” said Ron Clarke, chairman and chief executive officer, FleetCor Technologies, Inc.

“We expect this transaction will be slightly accretive to our 2012 earnings,” said Eric Dey, chief financial officer, FleetCor Technologies, Inc.

Ron Clarke, FleetCor’s chairman and chief executive officer and Eric Dey, FleetCor’s chief financial officer, will host a conference call July 11, 2012 at 4:30 ET to discuss FleetCor’s acquisition.
