Houston, October 2nd 2013 - Cardtronics, Inc. today announced its wholly owned subsidiary, Cardtronics USA, Inc., has closed on the acquisition of ATM business assets from Chandler, Ariz.-based CGI, Inc. (CGI Direct ATM), adding approximately 1,000 merchant-owned ATMs to its nationwide U.S. fleet. The transaction was signed and closed on Oct. 1; terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Part of the company's continued growth plan for its merchant-owned ATM business, the CGI Direct ATM acquisition grows Cardtronics' U.S. merchant-owned ATM portfolio to more than 22,600 cash machines.
