HOUSTON and TORONTO – March 23, 2017 – Cardtronics (Nasdaq: CATM) and The Bank of Nova Scotia ("Scotiabank") (TSX: BNS) (NYSE: BNS) today announced a long-term renewal of the companies’ ATM branding relationship in Canada. The agreement provides Scotiabank customers with No-Fee cash access at more than 640 Scotiabank-branded ATMs located at 7-Eleven Canada stores across the country. This renewed agreement includes an additional 130 locations in British Columbia and Alberta that have been added to 7-Eleven Canada’s footprint in recent months.
The renewed agreement extends a relationship established in 2010 across Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico which expands the bank’s ATM footprint, enhances market reach and provides extended No-Fee ATM cash access to its customers at more than 950 ATMs.
Cardtronics, the exclusive provider of ATM services to 7-Eleven Canada stores since 2012, entered into a new, long-term ATM services agreement with the convenience store operator earlier this year.
Scotiabank customers can find the nearest participating No-Fee ATM using the Scotiabank branch and ATM locator.
