Expanding on its leadership position in mobile financial services, FIS™
(FIS), the world’s largest provider of banking and payments
technology, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to
acquire the remaining 78 percent interest in mFoundry, a foremost
provider of mobile banking and payment solutions for financial
institutions and retailers. Previous to this transaction, FIS held a 22
percent interest in the company. The addition of mFoundry creates one of
the leading mobile entities in the financial services space and enables
FIS to leverage its technology assets across a broader client base.

“mFoundry has a well-earned reputation for innovation, powerful vision
and agile development and delivers one of the most advanced mobile
platforms in the market today,” noted Gary Norcross, FIS president and
chief operating officer. “Consumers have adopted the mobile channel
faster than any other delivery channel in existence, and delivering
industry-best mobile solutions is a vital focus area for FIS. Our goal
is to provide the solutions that underpin an organization’s ability to
best reach and serve its customers, and the addition of mFoundry plays a
key role in that strategy.”

Founded in 2004 and serving more than 850 clients, mFoundry’s
customer-focused solutions have become a leading platform for mobile
banking and mobile retail and have been adopted by some of the largest
banks, credit unions, payments processors and retailers in the country.

Commenting on the transaction, Drew Sievers, mFoundry co-founder and
chief executive officer stated, “FIS has been a great investment partner
for the last several years, and the timing was right for us to combine
forces to create the unparalleled industry leader in mobile delivery.
This transaction enables us to capitalize on new market opportunities
and bring top-tier mobile capabilities to our combined client bases.”

FIS anticipates paying approximately $120 million in cash to acquire the
remaining 78 percent ownership interest in mFoundry. The transaction,
subject to customary regulatory approvals and contractual closing
conditions, is expected to close by the end of the first quarter.
