FIS Chief Financial Officer To Retire In 2013

FIS™ (NYSE: FIS), the world’s largest provider of banking and payments technology, announced today that Corporate Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Michael Hayford, has informed the company of his plan to retire in 2013, following the appointment of his successor and an orderly transition of the function. Mr. Hayford has served as FIS’ chief financial officer since Oct. 2009.

“Mike has contributed greatly to our company’s success throughout his 20-year tenure, including his role as president and chief operating officer and other key operational posts at Metavante Technologies,” said Frank Martire, chairman and chief executive officer of FIS. “He has continued that service as CFO of FIS during a pivotal period for our company. We are fortunate to have benefited from his dedication and, particularly, from his leadership during that time. Mike made a strong contribution to the successful integration of Fidelity National Information Services and Metavante to form FIS, provided leadership in strengthening the financial operations post combination and has played a key role in executing the shift in FIS’ strategy away from mergers and acquisitions to focus on organic growth. The timing of his retirement will enable a thorough transition process to his successor.”

FIS will conduct a comprehensive internal and external search for a new chief financial officer.

“I feel very fortunate to have been part of the management team that has built the number one company in our industry,” said Michael Hayford. “Over the past three years, we have dramatically improved cash flow, strengthened the balance sheet and transformed the company into a culture of organic growth. Having accomplished what we set out to do, I believe it is a good time to retire.”
