Global Payments Inc. GPN is set to grow in the long run on the back of increased global consumption and an uptrend in electronic payments as well as integrated payments.
The company’s intensified focus on strengthening its software-driven payments makes it stand out in the industry. Ongoing investments in technology led to the transition in the company’s business mix toward technology enablement, which is expected to represent 60% of its revenues (up from 30% in 2015) and fuel significant growth by the end of 2020 with a balanced portfolio across owned SaS, partnered software, and e-commerce and omnichannel assets.
The acquisitions of APT in 2012, PayPros in 2014 and Heartland in 2016 also expanded the company’s technology platform. Its open software arm was further extended by the buyouts of AdvancedMD and SICOM. Global Payments’ robust technology solutions will continue to set its class apart in the marketplace and position it
