Wednesday 07/01/2009 8:33 AM ET - Datamonitor



US-based MoneyGram International, a money transfer company, and National Commercial Bank have entered into an agreement to offer MoneyGram's international money transfer service at the bank's 1,400 ATM locations in Saudi Arabia.

MoneyGram's money transfers at National Commercial Bank (NCB) will be sent over the bank's Quickpay platform. Initially, only send services will be available.

Anthony Ryan, president and CEO of MoneyGram International, said: "Saudi Arabia is the second largest send market in the world behind the US, and our alliance with a premier financial institution like NCB represents a significant opportunity for MoneyGram's expansion plans in the Middle East."

Alasharif Khalid Alghalib, senior executive vice president and head of the individual banking sector of NCB, said: "Together with MoneyGram, we can now claim to offer our customers simply the best way to send their money to loved ones back home, using the largest money transfer network in Saudi Arabia.

"With our partner, we have removed the inconvenience of standing in line during office hours and are providing expatriate clients a service that is secure and quick; but above all, flexible and tailored to meet their needs."

MoneyGram International (NYSE:MGI), a global money transfer company, and Bank of China, a pillar of China's banking community and Global Fortune 500 Company, announced today plans to begin offering MoneyGram money transfer services at all 200 Bank of China locations in Beijing in anticipation of expanding into the full Bank of China network.

"We are pleased to launch MoneyGram money transfer services to our Bank of China locations in Beijing, bringing value to our customers, widening the array of services that we offer, and also satisfying the demand for international money transfer service within the local and overseas Chinese population," said Mr. Feiqi MEI, Deputy General Manager, of Bank of China, Beijing branches.

MoneyGram International executives Pamela H. Patsley, executive chairman; and Anthony Ryan, president and chief executive officer, met today in Beijing with leaders from Bank of China as well as other leading agents on the mainland to discuss the common goal of bringing needed financial services to the people of China.

"International expansion is a key growth strategy for MoneyGram," said Patsley. "China represents a vast opportunity for MoneyGram to expand its global network and deliver on its commitment to provide safe and reliable money transfer services to people in every corner of the world."

Through Bank of China's impressive national network spanning urban cities and rural towns across mainland China, MoneyGram is able to meet the needs of consumers in one of the largest remittance markets in the world by ensuring that our services are accessible and convenient."
