The quarter has also seen the company boost its value proposition for both instore and online merchants. This was done through the acquisition of a 40% stake in Online Payment Platform to target the C2C marketplaces’ particular payment needs and to focus on significant growth opportunities in the B2B and B2C marketplace segments.
In line with its strategy to explore new adjacencies through technologies and products acquisitions, the company also closed the acquisition of a 55% stake in SoftPos.eu, a fintech that transforms Android devices into payment terminals, enabling merchants to accept card payments without the requirement for additional hardware.
Earlier this month, Worldline announced the completion of the sale of about 85% of its Terminals, Solutions & Services business line to Apollo Funds, with the sale of the remaining 15% to take place on 1 January 2023.
This deal will allow Worldline to simplify its structure and boost its focus on core payment services. The proceeds from this divestment will enable Worldline to speed up its development in payments services segment.
