Fidelity National Information Services Inc. COO Bruce Lowthers sees ample opportunities in his company's $43 billion acquisition of Ohio-based ecommerce leader Worldpay (NYSE: WP). The pairing brings FIS's (NYSE: FIS) banking customers, which include 45 of the world's 50 largest banks, together with Worldpay's more than 1 million merchant customers and creates major cross-selling opportunities for the company's more than 3,000 salespeople, Lowthers told the Business Journal. The merger will lead to new products, such as store credit programs, that build on the companies' different strenghts, Lowthers added, and it brings together the two companies' patchwork of foreign markets.

(NYSE: FDC) in January.
