Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 18, 2012
Merchant Data Systems releases enhancements to its M & A Program to help ISO Owners fund sales growth initiatives: Merchant Data Systems continues to prove the strategy to empower small business for success by providing a unique M&A Partner Program designed to give ISO owners both cash and continued ownership. “We give ISO’s what they’re looking for, allowing small business owners to take money off the table, significantly reduce their operating costs and focus on building future equity through well supported sales growth,” states Drew Freeman, President of Merchant Data Systems. Freeman further states “We manage a unique business model with a customized deal structure allowing Partners to determine their cash needs up-front and as well as equity participation in a new Joint Venture. The Merchant Data Systems Equity Empowerment model is quite appealing to ISO owners frustrated by an inability to support their agents and merchants with the same enthusiasm that they themselves demand.”
Components of the program include CASH available to invest, Operations Support, Dividends, Office space, Equity via Stock, Super Competitive Pricing, Infrastructure, Funding, Monetization of merchant assets, Enhanced Product Suite, Roll-up Premiums, Leasing options, Heavy Equipment financing, Internet Marketing, Merchant Lead Generation, ISO & Agent leads, Residual Buy-outs, Conversion Support, Card Brand Sponsorship, Merchant Cash Advances, and more. The program is designed to equip and empower ISO owners to realize the dream without the headaches of typical ISO contractual obligations. The program frees sales-minded entrepreneurs from the grind of daily operational issues and writing merchant contracts on paper that someone else owns.
Commenting on the decision to enter into a joint venture with Merchant Data Systems, Joseph DiCostanzo, CEO and Co-Founder of the former Elite Processing Systems states, “In a little more than one year with the Merchant Data Systems M&A Partner program, we tripled our sales productivity! As agents, we worked with Merchant Data Systems in the past and they delivered unparalleled service and support. As Managing Partner of a new venture, we can leverage the invaluable relationships, available expertise and key strategies that Merchant Data has available for us. We’ve gone the route of a Retail ISO before and it is definitely not the same as being an Equity Partner with Merchant Data Systems. Now we’re truly empowered for success.”
