VENDTEK SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES NATIONAL BILL PAY SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH SANTANDER BANK

TSX Venture Exchange: VSI

VANCOUVER, June 8, 2011 /CNW/ - VendTek Systems Inc. (TSXV: VSI) (the "Company" or "VendTek"), a developer and licensor of software for the global prepaid and financial services markets, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary in Brazil, Now Prepay Servicos de Informatica Ltda., has signed an agreement with Banco Santander S.A. ("Santander") to offer bank correspondence services to customers throughout Brazil. Banking correspondence services include banking services such as bill payment.

Spain's Santander Group is among the largest financial institutions in the world by market capitalization. With over 92 million customers and 13,000 branches in more than 40 countries, the group manages assets of more than US$1.87 billion. Santander's net income was US$3.13 billion in 2010.

In Brazil, Santander is ranked among the top five banks in terms of assets.1 Since 1998, it has acquired regional state banks such as Banco Noroeste and Banespa. As of September 2010, Santander Brazil recorded approximately 24 million customers and over 10 million active accounts nationwide.

Bill pay services are considered strategic to reach regions where banking services are limited and must be provided by processors jointly with a local bank. Consumers have the convenience of paying utility and other bills at venues such as supermarkets and drugstores. In 2010, such services accounted for over 40% of all paid bills in Brazil.  This equates to about 680 million bills paid in 2010.2

Doug Buchanan, President and Chief Executive Officer of VendTek Systems, said, "Bill pay will be our second service offering following the successful launch of mobile recharge. Consumers will be able to pay approximately 500 bills at our sales points. The partnership with Santander will leverage our growing merchant network with an extremely popular bill payment service in Brazil."
