Q2 2017 Wirecard AG Earnings Call
Here are three European players in the payment-services sector that one analyst says are the best bets for investors. A $10 billion deal this month has helped bring excitement to the growing sector.
Payment processing companies are gaining investor interest as the recent Vantiv-Worldpay dealshines a light on the sector. On July 8th, Vantiv (VNTV), the second largest merchant acquirer, offered to buy Worldpay (WDDYF) for $10 billion, an approximately 20% premium to its pre-deal trading value. Worldpay was a spin out from British bank Royal Bank of Scotland to private-equity firms Bain Capital and Advent International in 2010, and subsequently went public in 2015.
