Worldwide the company has approximately 190 clients in 70 countries - primarily banks. The company also operates service centres in London, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Cyprus and Malaysia.

TSYS says the all-cash transaction closed today and the unit will be known as TSYS Card Tech going forward.

Commenting on the acquisition, M Troy Woods, president and chief operating officer of TSYS, says: "With TSYS Card Tech, we have established a truly global footprint with capabilities to provide server-based issuing and acquiring services for small- and mid-sized financial institutions in almost any market."
