The majority interest includes a new equity investment First Data has made in Omnipay in addition to a prior, indirect investment through Fexco, a financial services provider which previously served as the majority stakeholder.

Pamela Patsley, president of First Data International, states: "We look forward to aggressively expanding the processing scale and capability of the Omnipay system as we broaden our international client base."
