<p>Cashcard Selects NCR to Maintain ATM Locations Australia-Wide</p>
<p>Deal covers ATMs deployed at cinemas, service stations and other convenience sites</p>
<p>SYDNEY, 15 October 2003 -- Australia’s leading independent payments system services provider, Cashcard, has awarded NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) a multiyear contract to provide maintenance and software services to maintain and support part of its fleet of automated teller machines (ATMs).</p>
<p>The deal involves ATMs located at Shell service stations, Greater Union, Hoyts and Village cinemas and other locations nationwide.</p>
<p>Cashcard is the only independent services company to offer high-volume payment facilities across the entire consumer electronic payments spectrum, including ATM and EFTPOS, Direct Entry and BPAY, telephone and Internet payments. Established in 1982, Cashcard has to date processed more than 2.5 billion payment transactions, making it one of the largest independent transaction processors in the region.</p>
<p>“We are pleased to announce this continuation of our long-standing relationship with NCR,” said Mr Greg Baker, Managing Director, Cashcard Australia. “Our extensive ATM network requires support from dedicated organisations that truly understand our business and we appreciate the skills that NCR brings to this section of the payments industry.”</p>
<p>NCR Financial Solutions Division Vice President for the South Pacific Area, Justin Corles, said, “The selection of NCR to maintain and support part of Cashcard’s ATM fleet is clear recognition of NCR’s successful track record in the Australian market and the wealth of services capabilities we bring to the table.”</p>
<p>Corles said the off-premise ATM market was now accounting for around 50 per cent of all cash withdrawals in Australia, and sales of off-premise ATMs had outstripped those of the through-the-wall devices in this country in the past 24 months.</p>
<p>He added that the pedestal/countertop EasyPoint™ 53 ATM launched in 2001 was proving particularly popular at service stations, corner stores and other small business premises. Owners of these establishments were seeing a marked increase in customer traffic and business as they were offering convenience banking to customers.</p>
<p>“Most hotels, clubs and supermarkets have one or more ATMs and reports indicate they are used almost around the clock every day,” Mr Corles added.</p>
