Monday 21 February 2022 10:42 CET | News

Worldline has entered exclusive talks to sell its TSS terminals business to US-based financial company Apollo in a deal potentially worth around EUR 2.3 billion.

The deal would comprise a EUR 1.7 billion upfront consideration as well as preferred shares that could reach up to EUR 0.9 billion in value depending on how TSS does in future.

Worldline, which bought French rival Ingenico in 2020 in a EUR 7.8 billion deal, said the sale of TSS to Apollo would help cut its debt and simplify its corporate structure.

Apollo is a global alternative asset manager. In the asset management business, Apollo seeks to provide its clients excess return at every point along the risk-reward spectrum from investment grade to private equity with a focus on three business strategies: yield, hybrid, and equity.
