sell more goods and services and cardholders enjoy informed choice and

transparency at the point-of-sale. We look forward to continuing the

growth of our business and revenues.”

Payment’s acquirer customers are able to activate new accounts and

new merchant locations for DCC on both Visa and MasterCard in all


As discussed in previous Company

announcements, in April 2010 Visa issued new rules which limited the

addition of new DCC participants. The new rules also included additional

receipt disclosure requirements, as well as new registration and

certification programs. Visa yesterday ended the restriction on the

offering of DCC by new merchants and acquirers.

Visa also announced the immediate lifting of its long standing

restriction on DCC in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa

(CEMEA). In Latin America, acquirers and merchants will be able to offer

the service effective 15 April 2011.

acquirers in all regions around the world, building on its customer base

of more than 40 acquirers and processors in 16 countries stretching from
