Verifone Extends NURIT Payment Solutions Line

Three New Systems Debut at Cartes 2006 November 07, 2006 Paris, France
Paris, France - November 7, 2006 - (CARTES 2006, Booth 4 L 014) – Verifone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY; TASE: PAY) today announced it has extended the NURIT line with the introduction of three new systems designed to meet a wide range of secure payment transaction needs.

Verifone utilized the venue of the world’s largest exhibit for smart card and identification products to demonstrate the NURIT line for the first time under the Verifone brand.

“At CARTES 2006 this week, Verifone is showcasing an expanded family of payment solutions and services that demonstrates the breadth and depth of this new force in the payment industry,” said Paul Rasori, Verifone vice president of Global Marketing. “This expansion of the NURIT product family demonstrates Verifone’s commitment to offer our customers around the world the flexibility to maintain and enhance their installed base of systems.”

Verifone’s vision of creating the world’s most comprehensive provider of electronic payment solutions advanced with the recent acquisitions of Lipman Electronic Engineering, which was completed last week, and the former Payment Systems Business of Trintech.

The NURIT 8400 introduced today is a highly flexible countertop payment terminal with a full range of dial-up, LAN and wireless communications choices and a wide variety of device interface options. The secure, reliable and easy-to-use multi-application system is suitable for a wide variety of retail locations, from small and medium-sized businesses to department stores and multi-lane outlets. In addition to magnetic stripe and smart card EMV-based credit and debit transactions, it supports value-added services, such as loyalty programs, gift cards and prepaid services.

Verifone also introduced the highly secure and fully programmable NURIT 293 PIN pad. Featuring an EMV 2000 smart card acceptor and magnetic stripe card reader, the NURIT 293 with high speed ARM processor integrates with third-party POS and electronic cash register (ECR) systems for smooth and economical migration to PIN-based EMV credit and debit transactions.

The third system introduced today, the NURIT 2930, also provides an EMV migration solution for proprietary ECRs and other systems that lack communications capabilities. The NURIT 2930 includes a modem, in addition to EMV and magnetic stripe acceptance. The system incorporates a connectivity hub for enhanced flexibility, modularity and clutter-free convenience for virtually any retail environment.
