Cross-Distribution Partnership Will Enable Card Present, Card Not Present, Mobile, Peer-To-Peer, and Cryptocurrency Payments at Restaurants

Albuquerque, NM (May 19, 2022)Lavu, a major global restaurant software and payments
solution provider built by restaurant people, and Verifone, a global FinTech leader and payment
solution provider to the world’s best-known brands, today announce a new cross-distribution
partnership that will seamlessly integrate Lavu’s all-in-one restaurant software suite with
Verifone’s FLEX payment solution, including its Advanced Payment Methods platform,
benefiting Lavu and Verifone customers.

The strategic partnership helps better serve the restaurant industry, allowing both Verifone and
Lavu to offer a high-quality, unified point of sale (POS) and payment experience to their
customers. Lavu will now be able to expand its payments acceptance offering into new markets
by leveraging Verifone’s breadth of payment connections. The first available product will be
comprised of a Verifone Engage e285 device with Lavu’s tablet-based POS solutions.

With access to Verifone’s Advanced Payment Methods platform, millions of restaurants will
more easily meet rapidly evolving consumer behavior, most notably the accelerated shift to
digital and split payments. Whether splitting a bill with a large party, paying using
cryptocurrencies or spreading payments over time, the Verifone user experience is simple:
Customers select their desired advanced payment method on the Verifone terminal and use
their mobile device to complete the transaction. 

The following payment methods, and more, will become available to Lavu customers and
Verifone customers: Alipay, Affirm, Cryptocurrency (including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin
Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, and several USD stablecoins) using prominent Crypto wallets, PayPal,
Venmo, WeChat Pay, Klarna, Swish, and Vipps.

“Our partnership with Verifone advances our mission to help even more restaurants reach new
customer segments and remain profitable during an increasingly challenging time,” said Saleem
S. Khatri, CEO of Lavu. “Especially over the past two years, consumers have acclimated to
contactless, cardless and flexible payment methods, and we’re excited to call Verifone our ally
in ensuring that restaurateurs meet these customer needs amidst inflationary pressures and
staffing shortages.”

“There’s massive interest from dining establishments to expand their payment acceptance
options as consumer trust in these popular digital wallets accelerates,” said Tim O’Loughlin
President and EVP, Verifone. “We’re excited to partner with Lavu to provide an unparalleled
end-to-end experience for restaurant merchants by joining the most adaptable restaurant POS
system with our payment solutions and suite of Advanced Payments Methods.”
