Brink’s Builds ATM Portfolio, Buys PAI for $213 Million

Brinks acquired PAI, which it called the largest closely held U.S. ATM-service provider, for $213 million.

Brink’s (BCO) - Get Brink's Company Report said on Tuesday it had paid $213 million for PAI, which it called the largest privately held U.S. provider of ATM services.

The deal will bring to Brink’s' portfolio “a platform of [automatic-teller-machine] services and more than 100,000 ATM service locations in the U.S. and Europe,” the company said in a statement.

Additionally, Brink's in Europe has entered agreements to own and provide managed services to financial institutions for more than 11,000 ATMs, Brink's said.

The Richmond, Va., cash-management and secure-logistics company said it closed the deal April 1, having funded it with cash on hand and its current credit lines.

Given that closing date, Brink's expects the deal to add $22 million of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and $240 million of revenue to its 2021 statements.

On a full-year basis, PAI, Dallas, should generate $30 million of adjusted Ebitda on about $320 million of revenue.
