Stocks in this article: EEFT

LEAWOOD, Kan., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (Nasdaq:EEFT), a leading global electronic payments provider and distributor, announced it has been assigned an issuer credit rating of BBB- by Standard & Poor's Rating Services ("S&P") with a stable outlook.             

"We believe that S&P's investment-grade designation reflects our ability to consistently generate strong free cash flows which have allowed us to deleverage, fund acquisitions and repurchase shares," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This S&P rating offers an independent perspective that validates the strength of our financial position and our conservative balance sheet management, and should give our customers, vendors and content providers additional confidence regarding financial strength." 

Information regarding Euronet's rating assignment can be found on the Standard & Poor's website at www.standardandpoors.com . None of the information on this website, including that research report, is incorporated by reference into or is otherwise a part of this press release. 

The credit rating assigned to Euronet Worldwide by S&P is subject to change based upon, among other factors, changes in Euronet's operational or financial condition. This rating is subject to ongoing evaluation by S&P and Euronet cannot guarantee the rating will not be changed or withdrawn in the future by the rating agency if the agency feels circumstances warrant. This rating does not relate to Euronet's common stock, and is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold Euronet's stock or any other securities.
