Net Element International To Acquire Unified Payments, A Leading Provider Of Payment Services Recognized By Inc. Magazine As The Fastest-Growing Company In The U.S. In 2012

Net Element International ( NASDAQ: NETE), a technology-driven group specializing in electronic commerce and mobile payment processing, and Unified Payments, a leading provider of transaction processing services and payment-enabling technologies that was recognized by Inc. Magazine as the fastest-growing private company in the U.S. in 2012, today announced that they have entered into a binding term sheet for Net Element International to acquire Unified Payments and operate it through its newly formed subsidiary and holding company, TOT, Inc. (TOT).

The acquisition is expected to position and diversify Net Element International’s TOT Money business and expand its global presence in the payments market. When the acquisition has been completed, Net Element International plans to aggressively begin deploying Unified Payments’ products and services in Russia and other emerging markets, while Unified Payments provides a strong foundation of recurring revenues in the U.S.

Both companies consider the acquisition a major win-win that will create a strong, driven and innovative force in the mobile and transaction processing markets. Their robust global networks and top-tier business relationships, combined with their shared commitment to payment technology innovation, are expected to help Net Element International spread its technology and business to a broader range of users in Russia and other emerging markets while expanding and diversifying its business base in North America.

“We became motivated to acquire Unified Payments after learning about its remarkable success, as it is very rare to see a young company with such an impressive growth track record,” said Net Element International Chairman Kenges Rakishev, himself a noted global business leader and strategic technology investor named one of the 50 most influential people in Kazakhstan. “This acquisition is extremely synergistic, as Net Element will leverage its deep industry relationships in Russia and Commonwealth of Independent States markets to introduce Unified Payment's unique business model and technologies in these growth markets. Indeed, the combination of these two cutting-edge companies resulting in the formation of TOT is expected to build a strong, technology-driven company in the global mobile and transaction processing markets.”
