March 6, 2014

LUXEMBOURG and LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

Co-operation between the first European cross-channel payment system and ReD, a world
leading provider of online fraud prevention and transaction security

With Yapital, a simple click of the ‘Confirm’ button is all it takes to complete a
payment. The whole process is secure and simple – and simply secure! To effectively
protect customer transactions and prevent fraud, the innovative cross-channel payment
solution Yapital is co-operating with ReD, a leading international provider of fraud
prevention services and transaction security. The integration of the ReD Shield(R) fraud
prevention service means all Yapital transactions can be verified and protected in real
time, with instant detection of fraudulent activities.

Yapital, the first European cross-channel-payment solution, was launched in the summer
of 2013 by Otto Group, one of the world’s largest online retailers. Yapital provides
payments across all channels – online, mobile, in-store and by invoice. Over recent
months, several important partners have integrated the pioneering payment system,
including Germany’s leading supermarket chain REWE. Where payment by QR code scan is not
yet possible, Yapital consumers can use their Yapital MasterCard, enabling them to pay at
more than 35 million acceptance points worldwide.

By signing a five-year contract with ReD, Yapital Financial AG has secured a strong
and competent partner to further support the effective protection of customer
transactions. The real-time ReD Shield fraud prevention service supports some of the
world’s leading merchants, gathering vital fraud intelligence from around the world to
inform tailored fraud strategies for retailers, travel, telecommunications, finance,
gaming and entertainment companies.

“With Yapital we have created a payment method that suits the lifestyle of modern
consumers”, explains Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board at Yapital. ReD’s
industry-leading fraud prevention solution and profound risk expertise allow us to provide
our users with an easy and secure payment experience across all channels – and this
well-founded trust of our customers will help us to reach our growth and expansion goals.”

Manish Patel, regional president for EMEA and Latin America at ReD, adds: “Yapital’s
cross-channel payment solution is a significant innovation and the perfect platform to
demonstrate our real-time screening capabilities. Yapital will be able to draw on the
expertise and global experience of ReD’s risk analysts, working closely with them to
monitor and refine rules, continually improve fraud prevention performance and adapt to
the changing behavior of fraudsters.”
