ACI Worldwide Statement on Brexit
ACI is a global payments software company. We take pride in serving customers in more than 80 countries, powering payments for leading banks, intermediaries, merchants and corporates around the world. We respect the local language, culture and laws wherever we do business. We manage and comply with a wide range of security and cross-border data transfer regulations as a routine part of our day-to-day business.
Since the United Kingdom (U.K.) referendum was announced in June 2016, ACI has been working to assess potential impacts of Brexit on our business, employees and customers. Our Business Operations groups, together with our Legal, Risk and Customer Success organizations are actively engaged in this effort and have taken steps to ensure customers contracts are protected. We have also identified and contacted those organizations located in EEA that send personal data to ACI’s London data center as part of the services we provide. We, like the rest of the world, are closely monitoring announcements from the U.K. government on Brexit developments and timelines.
We appreciate Brexit is top of mind for many of our customers. While we believe it premature to announce formal plans or reply to detailed Brexit questionnaires until the U.K. has finalized its exit plan, we want to provide the following update about ACI’s European and U.K. presence:
- ACI’s international headquarters is in Limerick, Ireland, where we have operated since 2006.
- In 2016, in response to European demand for cloud-based solutions, ACI expanded its Limerick facility with a new ACI-owned and operated state-of-the-art data center. This facility serves as ACI’s premier European data center and is designed to meet the most stringent security and compliance standards. As this facility is located outside of the U.K., we anticipate minimal Brexit impact.
- ACI has offices around the world supporting day-to-day operational functions for our global business. Our U.K., Ireland and European customers will continue to be supported through our global organization.

Additional guidance on Brexit preparedness is available online from the European Commission and the UK government.

ACI is committed to providing further updates once more definitive Brexit information is available.
