Netspend was acquired by TSYS in 2013 for $1.4 billion before TSYS itself was acquired by Global Payments last September for $21.5 billion.

CaixaBank and Global Payments have been maintaining a close partnership since 2010, starting with creation of their first joint venture Comercia Global Payments.

With a total market share in the merchant acquiring field of 27% and more than 400,000 businesses as customers, Comercia Global Payments is one of the leading payment services providers in Spain.
