Visa to acquire stake in Nigeria’s Interswitch

Visa Inc plans to acquire a “significant minority” stake in payments platform Interswitch, the Nigeria-based company said on Tuesday.

Interswitch did not provide financial details in its statement.

The acquisition, which Sky News reported on Sunday as being a 20 per cent stake for $200 million, would give the company a valuation of $1,000,000,000 – putting it in the tech-world “unicorn” status for companies that have a billion-dollar valuation. (Reuters/NAN)
