Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On February 3, 2016 Evertec, Inc. (Evertec or the Company) announced in a Current Report on Form 8-K that the Department of Justice of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (the P.R. DOJ) announced during a hearing before the Puerto Rico House of Representatives that it had initiated a formal investigation into whether the Company has engaged in conduct that interferes with free competition with respect to the products and services it provides within the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and which conduct could constitute a violation of the Puerto Rico Anti-Monopoly Act, Law 77 of June 25, 1964 (the Act).
Today Evertec received official confirmation that the P.R. DOJ has formally closed its investigation of the Company and has concluded that Evertec has not engaged in conduct that interferes with free competition with respect to the products and services, including merchant acquiring and payment processing, it provides within the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and has not violated the Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
