ACI WORLDWIDE, INC.
We develop, market, install and support a broad line of software products and services primarily focused on facilitating electronic payments. In addition to our own products, we distribute, or act as a sales agent for, software developed by third parties. Our products are sold and supported through distribution networks covering three geographic regions the Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa and Asia/Pacific. Each distribution network has its own sales force and supplements its sales force with independent reseller and/or distributor networks. Our products and services are used principally by financial institutions, retailers and electronic payment processors, both in domestic and international markets. Accordingly, our business and operating results are influenced by trends such as information technology spending levels, economic changes in the financial markets, the growth rate of the electronic payments industry, mandated regulatory changes, and changes in the number and type of customers in the financial services industry. Our products are marketed under the ACI Worldwide brand.
The electronic payments market is comprised of financial institutions, retailers, third-party electronic payment processors, payment associations, switch interchanges and a wide range of transaction-generating endpoints, including automated teller machines, retail merchant locations, bank branches, mobile phones, corporations and Internet commerce sites. The authentication, authorization, switching, settlement and reconciliation of electronic payments is a complex activity due to the large number of locations and variety of sources from which transactions can be generated, the large number of participants in the market, high transaction volumes, geographically dispersed networks, differing types of authorization, and varied reporting requirements. These activities are typically performed online and are often conducted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We derive a majority of our revenues from non-domestic operations and believe our greatest opportunities for growth exist largely in international markets. Refining our global infrastructure is a critical component of driving our growth. We have launched a globalization strategy which includes elements intended to streamline our supply chain and provide low-cost centers of expertise to support a growing international customer base. In fiscal 2006, we established a new subsidiary in Ireland to serve as the focal point for certain international product development and commercialization efforts. This subsidiary manages certain of our intellectual property rights. Since 2006, we have been growing low-cost centers of expertise in Timisoara in Romania and in Bangalore in India. During 2009, we have continued our efforts to try and take a direct selling and support strategy in certain countries where historically we have used third-party distributors to represent our products, in an effort to develop closer relationships with our customers and develop a stronger overall position in those countries.
To find out where you can obtain copies of our documents that have been incorporated by reference, see Where You Can Find More Information.
On December 16, 2007, we entered into an Alliance Agreement (Alliance) with International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) relating to joint marketing and optimization of our electronic payments application software and IBMs middleware and hardware platforms, tools and services. On March 17, 2008, ACI and IBM entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Alliance (Amendment No. 1 and included hereafter in all references to the Alliance), which changed the timing of certain payments to be made by IBM. Under the terms of the Alliance, each party will retain ownership of its respective intellectual property and will independently determine product offering pricing to customers. The stated initial term of the Alliance is five years, subject to extension for successive two-year terms if not previously terminated by either party and subject to earlier termination for cause.
In connection with the formation of the Alliance, we granted warrants to IBM to purchase up to 1,427,035 shares of our common stock at a price of $27.50 per share and up to 1,427,035 shares of our common stock at a price of $33.00 per share. The warrants are exercisable for five years. We have filed the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part pursuant to the registration rights we granted to IBM. The following is a summary of this offering.

We are registering the warrant shares pursuant to the registration rights granted to the selling stockholders in connection with the December 16, 2007 grant of two warrants representing the right to purchase an aggregate of 2,854,070 shares of common stock. We are not selling any securities under this prospectus and will not receive any proceeds from sales of the warrant shares sold from time to time under this prospectus by the selling stockholders.
There are two warrants that are the subject of this prospectus. Each warrant is exercisable for up to 1,427,035 shares of common stock. One warrant is exercisable at the initial exercise price of $33.00 per share, and the other warrant is exercisable at the initial exercise price of $27.50 per share, with each such exercise price subject to adjustment upon certain events. Both warrants were exercisable upon issuance on December 16, 2007 and will expire at the close of business on December 16, 2012. Upon any exercise of the warrants, the selling stockholders would pay us the exercise price of the warrants, which would be used for general corporate purposes.
We have agreed to pay all expenses relating to registering the warrant shares referenced in this prospectus. The selling stockholders will pay any underwriting discounts and selling commissions incurred for the sale of such warrant shares.
We initially issued warrants for the shares of common stock offered by this prospectus to IBM and its permitted successors and assigns (collectively, the selling stockholders) on December 16, 2007 in connection with the Alliance. We are registering the warrant shares pursuant to registration rights granted in connection with the initial grant of the warrants. IBMs principal executive offices are located at 1 New Orchard Road, Armonk, New York 10504.
We are registering all 2,854,070 warrant shares on behalf of the selling stockholders. The warrants shall not be transferable by the selling stockholders other than to a subsidiary of the selling stockholders.
No offer or sale under this prospectus may be made by a holder of our common stock until that holder has notified us and, if required, we have filed a supplement to this prospectus or an amendment to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part has become effective. We will supplement or amend this prospectus to include additional selling stockholders upon request and upon provision of all required information to us. We will provide to each named selling stockholder copies of this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement and will take certain other actions as are required to permit unrestricted resales of the shares of common stock offered hereby. A holder that sells shares by means of this prospectus will be subject to certain of the civil liability provisions under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) in connection with such sales and will be bound by the provisions of the registration rights provisions of the warrant agreement that are applicable to such a holder (including certain indemnification rights and obligations).
The selling stockholders may offer and sell any or all of their warrant shares at any time and from time to time. Because the selling stockholders may offer all or only some portion or none of their warrant shares, we cannot estimate the amount or percentage of common stock that the selling stockholders will hold upon termination of the offering.
No selling stockholder has held any position, office or other material relationship with us or our predecessors or affiliates during the past three years other than as disclosed in this prospectus with respect to the Alliance.
We are registering the warrant shares issuable upon exercise of the warrants issued to the selling stockholders to permit the resale of these warrant shares by the holders of the warrants from time to time after the date of this prospectus. We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale by the selling stockholders of the warrant shares.
The warrant shares may not be transferred by the selling stockholders (other than to a subsidiary) until 31 days after the acquisition of warrant shares pursuant to the exercise of a warrant (the Transfer Date). Following the applicable Transfer Date, the selling stockholders may sell all or a portion of the warrant shares from time to time directly or through one or more underwriters, broker-dealers or agents. If the warrant shares are sold through underwriters or broker-dealers, the selling stockholders will be responsible for underwriting discounts or selling commissions. The warrant shares may be sold on any national securities exchange or quotation service on which the securities may be listed or quoted at the time of sale, in the over-the-counter market or in transactions otherwise than on these exchanges or systems or in the over-the-counter market and in one or more transactions at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of the sale, at varying prices determined at the time of sale, or at negotiated prices. These sales may be effected in transactions, which may involve crosses or block transactions. The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when selling shares:
ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;
block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;
an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;
privately negotiated transactions;
settlement of short sales entered into after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part;
broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholders to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;
through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether such options are listed on an options exchange or otherwise;
a combination of any such methods of sale; and
any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.
The selling stockholders also may resell all or a portion of the warrant shares in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, as permitted by that rule, or Section 4(1) under the Securities Act, if available, rather than under this prospectus, provided that they meet the criteria and conform to the requirements of those provisions.
Broker-dealers engaged by the selling stockholders may arrange for other broker-dealers to participate in sales. If the selling stockholders effect such transactions by selling warrant shares to or through underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, such underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may receive commissions in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholders or commissions from purchasers of the warrant shares for whom they may act as agent or to whom they may sell as principal. Such commissions will be in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in a supplement to this prospectus, in the case of an agency transaction will not be in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with NASD Rule 2440; and in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown in compliance with NASD IM-2440.
In connection with sales of the warrant shares or otherwise, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the warrant shares in the course of hedging in positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell warrant shares short and if such short sale shall take place after the date that the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part, is declared effective by the SEC, the selling stockholders may deliver warrant shares to close out short positions and to return borrowed shares in connection with such short sales. The selling stockholders may also loan or pledge warrant shares to broker-dealers that in turn may sell such shares, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The selling stockholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of warrant shares, which shares such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the selling stockholders have been advised that they may not use warrant shares offered in this prospectus to cover short sales of our common stock made prior to the date the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part, has been declared effective by the SEC.
The selling stockholders may, from time to time, pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the warrant shares owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the warrant shares from time to time pursuant to this prospectus or any amendment to this prospectus under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act, amending, if necessary, the list of selling stockholders to include the pledgee, transferee or other successors in interest as selling stockholders under this prospectus. The selling stockholders also may transfer and donate the warrant shares in other circumstances in which case the transferees, donees, pledgees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus.
The selling stockholders and any broker-dealer or agents participating in the distribution of the warrant shares may be deemed to be underwriters within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions paid, or any discounts or concessions allowed, to any such broker-dealer or agent and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. Selling stockholders who are underwriters within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act will be subject to the applicable prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act including Rule 172 thereunder and may be subject to certain statutory liabilities of, including but not limited to, Sections 11, 12 and 17 of the Securities Act and Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act.
Each selling stockholder has informed us that it is not a registered broker-dealer and does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the warrant shares. Upon our being notified in writing by a selling stockholder that any material arrangement has been entered into with a broker-dealer for the sale of warrant shares through a block trade, special offering, exchange distribution or secondary distribution or a purchase by a broker or dealer, a supplement to this prospectus will be filed, if required, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, disclosing (i) the name of each such selling stockholder and of the participating broker-dealer(s), (ii) the number of warrant shares involved, (iii) the price at which such warrant shares were sold, (iv) the commissions paid or discounts or concessions allowed to such broker-dealer(s), where applicable, (v) that such broker-dealer(s) did not conduct any investigation to verify the information set out or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, and (vi) other facts material to the transaction.
Under the securities laws of some states, the warrant shares may be sold in such states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states the warrant shares may not be sold unless such shares have been registered or qualified for sale in such state or an exemption from registration or qualification is available and is complied with.
We have agreed to keep the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part effective until the earlier of (i) such time as all warrant shares registered hereby have been sold hereunder and (ii) receipt by the selling stockholders of an opinion of counsel (which may be counsel to us) reasonably satisfactory to the selling stockholders to the effect that all warrant shares can be sold without restriction under the Securities Act.
There can be no assurance that any selling stockholder will sell any or all of the warrant shares registered pursuant to the shelf registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part.
Each selling stockholder and any other person participating in such distribution will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act, and the rules and regulations thereunder, including, without limitation, to the extent applicable, Regulation M of the Exchange Act, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the warrant shares by the selling stockholders and any other participating person. To the extent applicable, Regulation M may also restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the warrant shares to engage in market-making activities with respect to the warrant shares. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the warrant shares and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities with respect to the warrant shares.
We will pay all expenses of the registration of the warrant shares, including, without limitation, SEC filing fees and expenses of compliance with state securities or blue sky laws; provided, however, that each selling stockholder will pay all underwriting discounts and selling commissions, if any. We will indemnify the selling stockholders against certain liabilities, including some liabilities under the Securities Act, in accordance with the warrant agreements, or the selling stockholders will be entitled to contribution. We may be indemnified by the selling stockholders against civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act or Exchange Act, that may arise from any written information furnished to us by the selling stockholders, in accordance with the warrant agreement, or we may be entitled to contribution. We will not be paying any underwriting discounts or commissions in this offering.
The validity of the shares of common stock offered pursuant to this prospectus will be passed upon for us by Jones Day.
