In doing so, we are more than ever committed to contributing to the sustainable growth of the societies we operate in, while remaining at the highest possible level of social and environmental responsibility.

Mr. Deepak Chandnani, Managing Director, Worldline South Asia and Middle East said, “The acquisition of Ingenico by Worldline enables us to offer our customers a broader range of innovative solutions both in the physical and online payment space. With the coming together of the two organizations, both of which have a deep knowledge in the payments space, we will be able to serve our customers’ needs more comprehensively and seamlessly as they strive to offer a faster, more secure and frictionless payment experience. Worldline will now become the largest merchant acquirer and payment processor in Europe and is number 4 on a global scale. This deal will also enhance Worldline’s leadership position in India. We remain committed to contributing to the ideal of a less-cash economy and our combined organization will be focused to achieving that goal.”
