FIS and Banco Bradesco Agree to a New Long-term Contract to Continue and Expand their Commercial Relationship in Brazil

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Jacksonville, FL, United States, 2018/10/01 - FIS™ announced that it has signed an agreement to unwind its joint venture (“JV”) and enter into a significant long term commercial agreement to provide current and new solutions and services to Banco Bradesco - Bradescori.com.br / FISglobal.com. NYSE: FIS

   
 
 

• FIS and Banco Bradesco agree to a significant long-term commercial agreement by which FIS will provide a full range of card processing services.
• Transactions to unwind the JV and initiate new commercial solutions expected to close in the second quarter of 2019.
• Positions FIS to grow business in Latin America with greater flexibility.
• Transaction not expected to have an impact on organic revenue growth, adjusted EPS or free cash flow.

FIS™, a global leader in financial services technology, announced today that it has signed an agreement to unwind its joint venture (“JV”) and enter into a significant long term commercial agreement to provide current and new solutions and services to Banco Bradesco, one of the largest financial institutions in Brazil. New services to be provided to Banco Bradesco under the agreement include software application licensing and management, card portfolio migration, business process outsourcing, fraud management, and professional services.

This transaction to unwind the JV will benefit both parties and support the long-term growth of their respective businesses. Without the JV structure and overhead, Banco Bradesco will achieve attractive cost savings, and FIS will benefit from its ability to compete independently in the market. FIS will continue to provide ongoing services to all non-Bradesco customers currently in the JV on a direct basis.

At closing, the parties will spin off all of the JV assets which service the non-Bradesco customers of the JV, and those assets needed to provide the new and continuing services that FIS will then provide directly to Bradesco to a new entity owned by FIS. This will include, at closing, transferring approximately 40% of the current JV workforce to the new FIS entity.

The transactions are subject to approval of the Brazilian Central Bank and Trade Commission (CADE) and customary contractual provisions, and are expected to close by the second quarter of 2019.

As an independent service provider FIS will be empowered to grow its business in Brazil by not requiring any payment sales to be serviced by the JV. This change will provide FIS greater flexibility and a more efficient go-to-market strategy. FIS views the Latin American market as a long-term strategic region for sustained growth and will continue to make investments in the region.

“This is a significant milestone in our ongoing relationship with Banco Bradesco and marks a new stage in FIS’ presence and growth in the Brazilian marketplace,” said Marianne Brown, Global Financial Solutions Chief Operating Officer, FIS. “We look forward to continuing to provide top-quality card processing services to the bank’s more than 40 million card customers, and leveraging our local market expertise to grow our business with other Brazilian banks and companies.”

“We’ve enjoyed a successful partnership with FIS for nearly a decade, and we look forward to their continued support of our card payments business,” said Cesário Nakamura, Director of Bradesco.

The annualized expected impact of the deconsolidation of financials from the dissolution of a JV in which FIS owned 51% and Banco Bradesco owned 49% would be to reduce FIS reported revenue by approximately $200 million. Additionally, FIS expects a one-time non-cash pre-tax charge of approximately $100 million, primarily due to the write-off of goodwill and intangibles associated with the transaction, which would reduce net earnings attributable to common stockholders. On a non-GAAP basis, the deconsolidation of financials is not expected to have an impact on organic revenue growth, adjusted EPS or free cash flow.

Additional details regarding this announcement will be provided on FIS’ third quarter earnings call.
