Edenred
Acquisition   CSI provides corporate payment solutions

French meal vouchers and card provider company Edenred is buying U.S. firm Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI) for around $600 million.


CSI provides corporate payment solutions, and Edenred's acquisition marks the latest takeover in the sector.
