Nets has purchased the remaining shares in Paytrail Oy


Nets has purchased the remaining 20% shares in Paytrail Oy for a cash consideration of DKK 58 million. In December 2014, Nets acquired 80% of the shares in Paytrail with an option to acquire the remaining shares from the founders and key employees in July 2017 based on the performance of the business.


Asger Hattel, Executive Vice President, Head of Merchant Services in Nets says

"We've been developing Paytrail in a partnership with the founders since late 2014, and I'm delighted to look back at the excellent development of this company and contribution to Nets' eCommerce business. Paytrail has strengthened our ability to support Finnish merchants as well as supporting Nets in developing new propositions."    


Financial impact

The share purchase is funded by Nets' own cash and existing credit facilities and the purchase of the remaining shares in Paytrail does not change the guidance for 2017.
