Deutsche Bank is to sell its European merchant acquiring business to US processor EVO Payments International.

Under the proposed transaction, EVO will acquire 100% of Cologne-based Deutsche Card Services,which currently operates in 39 European markets. It provides merchant acquiring services to multi-national clients of Deutsche Bank including online, point-of-sale and ATM, as well as other related services.
