FleetCor Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FLT) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Serviços e Tecnologia de Pagamentos S.A. (“STP”), from a shareholder group including concessionaires CCR S.A. and Arteris S.A., Raizen Combustiveis S.A. (a joint venture between Shell and Cosan), and others, for approximately $1.05 billion USD1.

STP, which operates under the brand Sem Parar, is Brazil’s leading electronic toll payments company, with near universal acceptance nationally. Using RFID technology, STP-issued tags and stickers process approximately $2.5 billion USD in toll, parking, and fuel payments annually for over 4.5 million active users. STP also provides cardless fuel payments at an expanding number of Shell sites throughout Brazil. The company has approximately 2,200 employees and is headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“We have followed STP’s growth and development for many years and are excited today to announce this transaction,” said Ron Clarke, chairman and chief executive officer of FleetCor Technologies, Inc. “We believe that the acquisition will result in substantial synergies as we implement our operating disciplines and consolidate with our other Brazil lines of business.”
