Hectronic Selects Hypercom Unattended Payment Solution for Parking Machines in Brussels

Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) today announced that Hectronic GmbH, one of the leading worldwide suppliers of parking ticket machines, has selected Hypercom's unattended payment terminal Artema Modular for installation in on-street parking machines in the Belgian capital, Brussels.
The rollout and installation of over 600 Artema Modular kits has already begun. The PCI-certified unattended payment terminal will initially be used for credit card payments, allowing for the future acceptance of PIN-based transactions. All transaction data is transmitted via a GPRS module which is installed in the parking ticket machine.

"Hectronic's selection of Hypercom reinforces the flexibility, security and operational efficiency of our technology and demonstrates the level of leadership we have built up in Europe's fast growing unattended card payment sector," said Peter Ehlers, Managing Director, Northern Europe, Hypercom Corporation. "We are delighted to work with this leading machine integrator to bring secure and convenient card payments to Belgium consumers."

Stefan Forster, Managing Director at Hectronic, added, "Due to the terminal's modular and flexible components and interfaces, it provides an ideal solution for our international and project-specific requirements. This is why we have selected Hypercom as our preferred supplier of unattended payment terminals, and have already deployed Artema Modular in on-street parking projects in Germany, France, UK, Ireland, Malaysia and Australia."

Artema Modular, Hypercom's best-in-class unattended card payment solution, was first introduced at the end of 2005, and can now be found in self-service machines deployed in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and North America.
