Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.® (Nasdaq: JKHY) announced today that it has closed its previously announced acquisition of Payrailz, adding the company’s next-generation digital payment capabilities to Jack Henry’s payments ecosystem.

Acquiring Payrailz supports Jack Henry’s technology modernization strategy that helps banks and credit unions successfully compete with industry disruptors, innovate faster, and meet the evolving needs of consumer and commercial accountholders. This acquisition also enhances Jack Henry’s payments-as-a-service (PaaS) strategy, which is a natural extension of its commitment to open banking and the ability to enable embedded finance and embedded fintech, while reinforcing the company’s mission to strengthen connections between people and financial institutions through technology and services that reduce the barriers to financial health.

“We are excited to close this acquisition and begin integrating Payrailz into Jack Henry,” said David Foss, Board Chair and CEO of Jack Henry. “This acquisition provides our collective clients with additional functionality, optionality, and flexibility and better supports the digital and payment strategies of diverse banks and credit unions. The projected impact of this acquisition will be disclosed as part of FY23 first quarter earnings, and as a reminder, our FY23 earnings per share guidance provided in our most recent earnings press release did not include the impact of this acquisition. I’d also like to reconfirm the fiscal year guidance of $5.05 to $5.09 EPS we previously provided and to provide fiscal first quarter guidance of $1.36 to $1.38 EPS.”
