Cardtronics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CATM), the world’s largest retail ATM owner / operator, completed its acquisition of Columbus Data Services, LLC on July 1. Founded in 1999 and based in Dallas, Texas, CDS is a leading independent processor of ATM and payment card transactions, providing leading-edge solutions to ATM sales and service organizations and financial institutions.

The company’s presence in processing ATMs in independent retail locations is highly complementary with Cardtronics’ strength in the larger chain retail market. We look forward to bringing Cardtronics’ deeper resources, extensive distribution channels and differentiated ATM product set to CDS to accelerate its growth and provide greater value to its customers.”

The aggregate purchase price is approximately $80 million, subject to customary closing adjustments; Cardtronics funded the acquisition with borrowings under its credit facility.
