Payment Services M&A Intensifies With Vantiv's
$10.4B Buy, Law 360

Mergers and acquisitions among payment services is heating up, with U.S.-based Vantiv's $10.4 billion takeover of a U.K. peer marking the latest tie-up as startups eye a global reach, more traditional players fight to stay competitive, and private equity firms bet on the sector.

"The pace is increasing dramatically over the last five years in payment innovation, so I think over the next few years, we're going to see this velocity continue or increase just because the number of disrupters in the space is increasing and the entrenched players have to pick up that technology," Greenville partner Brad Rustin told Law 360 in an article published Aug. 9, 2017.
