To Our Valued Customers:


I’d like to take this opportunity to update you on where we stand with our pending acquisition of Lipman. On September 6, we passed another milestone with the announcement that the Department of Justice in the U.S. has cleared the merger with no conditions.


We expect to complete the acquisition on November 1 to coincide with the start of our new fiscal year 2007. The remaining key steps prior to closing will be the Lipman and VeriFone shareholder meetings, which have been scheduled, respectively, for September 14 and 15. Israeli law requires a 30-day waiting period after the conclusion of the Lipman shareholder meeting.


VeriFone is well advanced in its integration planning. We have formed an integration organization to ensure we are operating as an integrated business on Day One of the merged company. Our Day One planning is proceeding along all three key tracks - - sales and marketing, supply chain, and administration.


With the successful integrations of GO Software and Trintech’s Payment Systems Business, VeriFone has demonstrated an ability to acquire companies without missing a beat. I am fully confident in the abilities of our teams to meet the goals we have set out to ensure that the two companies will be 100% ready to conduct business as one on all fronts come November 1.


The industrial logic behind this acquisition remains as compelling as it was when we announced it. VeriFone and Lipman are the fastest growing and most profitable providers of point of sale electronic payment technologies, and geographically, the two companies are fully complementary.


From November 1, the new VeriFone will represent tremendous geographical and product diversification that no other company in our industry can match. This will create great opportunities to continue to provide increased value to our customers.


We appreciate your patience during the acquisition process.
