Take notice that a proposed Final Judgment and Amended Hold Separate Stipulation and Order have been filed with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in United States of America v. First Data Corporation and Concord EFS, Inc., Civil Action No. 03CV02169. On October 23, 2003, the United States filed a Complaint alleging that the proposed acquisition by First Data of Concord would violate Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. § 18. The Complaint alleges that the acquisition would reduce competition substantially in the PIN debit network services market by combining Concord's STAR PIN debit network with the NYCE PIN debit network. First Data owns a controlling 64 percent interest in NYCE. The proposed Final Judgment requires First Data to divest all of its interests in NYCE. A Competitive Impact Statement filed by the United States describes the Complaint, the proposed Final Judgment, the industry, and the remedies available to private litigants who may have been injured by the alleged violation. Copies of the Complaint, proposed Final Judgment, Amended Hold Separate Stipulation and Order, and Competitive Impact Statement are available for inspection at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., in Room 9500, 600 E Street, N.W. and at the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C. Interested persons may address comments to Renata Hesse, Chief, Networks and Technology Section, Antitrust Division, Department of Justice, Suite 9500, 600 E Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20530, within 60 days of the date of this notice.
