The acquisition of Dalenys strengthens Natixis' range of payment solutions for e-retailers on a fast-growing market with transaction volume in Europe in excess of €500bn.

This transaction rounds out the Groupe BPCE's commercial set-up, enabling it to develop new services based on data analysis, and provide innovative digital offerings for mid-sized and large retailers in Europe.

The acquisition of Dalenys is part of the creation of the Payment business line at Natixis at the end of 2016, bringing together Natixis Payment Solutions, Natixis Intertitres and S'money, along with the acquisition of Fintech PayPlug, which was finalized in April 2017. Dalenys will increase Natixis Payment Solutions' international client base and will pave the way for a rapid European expansion.

Gils Berrous, Member of Natixis' Senior Management Committee, Head of Specialized Financial Services division: "We are very delighted to develop, with Dalenys teams, a major player in e-commerce, on a European scale. We are convinced that Dalenys' client relationship model, based on an excellent insight into their needs and an integrated distribution system, will help increase value for our clients over the long term".
