 15 billion euro payment giant born! Italys two largest payment companies announced merger


After the merger, the market value of the new company will reach 15 billion euro, and CDP, the Italian state-owned bank, will hold more than 25% of the shares.

The merger of nexi and SIA is just the latest case in the wave of mergers and acquisitions in the European payment industry. With more and more powerful international competitors, the integration pressure of European local payment enterprises is also increasing.

At the beginning of this year, worldline and Ingenico, two of Frances largest payment companies, announced a merger, with revenue of 5.3 billion euro in 2019, making them the fourth largest payment operator in the world.
