Bank of America closed its $1.4 billion acquisition of National Processing, Inc., creating the nation's second-largest bankcard merchant acquirer, representing approximately one of every five VISA® and MasterCard® transactions processed nationally.

National Processing, a public company, was 83 percent owned by National City Corporation. National Processing shareholders, who received $26.60 per share, approved the deal on Oct. 8.

The newly named company, BA Merchant Services LLC, with nearly $250 billion in annual processing volume, will continue to be headquartered in Louisville, KY.

Bank of America believes that with the acquisition of National Processing it is strongly positioned to innovate and create efficiencies in electronic payments. Bank of America is the No. 1 check processor, the No. 1 debit card issuer and the No. 4 credit card issuer in the United States.
