USA Technologies and Ingenico Group to Launch Combined Offering

Expansion of USAT’s Portfolio of World-Leading Payment Solutions

Technologies, Inc.
(NASDAQ:USAT) (“USAT”), a payment technology
provider of cashless and mobile transactions in vending, kiosk, parking
and other self-serve retail industries, today announced that together
with Ingenico,
a global leader in seamless payment with 32 million terminals present in
more than 170 countries, it will be launching a combined best-in-class
cashless hardware and cashless payment services solution in the United

By offering Ingenico’s payment hardware, USA Technologies’ customers
will have the opportunity to add an EMV contact solution to their
cashless payment portfolio. In turn, Ingenico Group would be able to
leverage USAT’s Quick Connect or ePort®
Connect platform
for use with its PCI-certified, EMV and
NFC/contactless unattended payment solution – the iUC285.

“At Ingenico Group, it is our goal to offer merchants the best payment
solutions across the retail spectrum and provide consumers with fast,
simple and secure purchasing experiences,” said Bruce Rasmussen,
director of sales, Strategic Verticals at Ingenico Group / North
America. “This joint offering with USA Technologies signals to the
market that we continue to identify the most innovative solutions that
empower merchants and our commitment to expand the most secure payment
options to the unattended retail market.”

With this combined offering, USAT intends to provide unattended retail
operators the prospect of using Ingenico’s world-leading seamless
payment hardware via USAT’s cashless payment network. Merchants could
gain access to automatic updates to payment software, settings, security
and point-of-sale insight data through USAT’s ePort Connect network with
the ability to layer on valuable services like consumer engagement,
loyalty programs, and payroll deduct.

“By going to market with a leading global payment hardware provider, we
are able to offer vending and other unattended retail merchants with the
best-in-class payment solutions, that accept new and emerging forms of
payments like EMV, with USAT’s ePort Connect suite of cashless payment,
consumer engagement and loyalty services,” said Michael Lawlor, Chief
Services Officer, USA Technologies. “Best of all, with Ingenico Group
hardware, our customers would be expanding the payment acceptance
possibilities, while we work to increase our presence in new market
sectors where USAT’s cashless payment technology could be utilized.”

The proposed combination of USAT’s platform of services and Ingenico
Group’s hardware could benefit a number of industries in the unattended
market including: kiosk, education, retail, hospitality, parking and
vending, among others.
