DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP’S BUSINESS Strategy
Large deals expertise: maintain commercial focus C.5.2 on large outsourcing deals and new bank alliances
Worldline intends to maintain a strong commercial focus on new large payment outsourcing contracts with banks, which is proving to be a sustained trend in the market. As regulatory changes alter the mechanics of the payment services industry in Europe, financial institutions, forced to reassess their cost structures, are expected to increasingly opt to outsource key functions to third party payment service providers. In 2020, UniCredit, following this trend and in line with the contract signed with Commerzbank in2018, decided to enter a long term strategic partnership with equensWorldline for the processing of all SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area), instant, multi-currency, domestic and high value payments.
Given its expertise in large deals elaboration, its scale, its leadership position within the European payments market and full range of services offered across the extended payment value chain, the Group is ideally positioned to capture additional business from banks willing to outsource their payment infrastructure but also looking for a partner to jointly provide merchants with advanced acquiring and payment processing services. Furthermore, the Group expects to be well-placed to capture additional business from banks looking to enhance revenue streams through the provision of additional value added services to their customers.
