Vantiv and Worldpay agree on USD 10 billion merger

Thursday 10 August 2017 | 12:20 PM CET

Vantiv has secured a USD 10 billion deal to buy UK-based Worldpay. The two companies will merge under the Worldpay name.

Vantiv made a bid to acquire Worldpay in July, but it took several weeks to reach an official agreement as the two companies disagreed over governance and safeguarding British jobs. The new company will have its headquarters in Cincinnati, with a primary listing in New York and a secondary one in London.

The company's international operations will be run from London, but representatives have not offered any formal guarantees for jobs in Britain where Worldpay's UK division employs about 1,200 of its roughly 5,000 employees.
