                      Western Union Co was incorporated in Delaware on February 17, 2006. The Company is engaged in global money transfer and payment services, providing people with fast, reliable and convenient ways to send money around the world. Its se...morervices are available through a network of over 410,000 agent locations in more than 200 countries and territories. The Company's segments are Consumer-to-Consumer, Consumer-to-Business and Business Solutions. The Consumer-to-Consumer operating segment facilitates money transfers between two consumers, through a network of third-party agents. Its multi-currency, real-time money transfer service is viewed as one interconnected global network where a money transfer can be sent from one location to another, around the world. The money transfer services are available for inte...morernational cross-border transfers - that is, the transfer of funds from one country to another - and, in certain countries, intra-country transfers - that is, money transfers from one location to another in the same country. This segment also includes money transfer transactions that can be initiated through websites and account based money transfers. The Consumer-to-Business operating segment facilitates bill payments from consumers to businesses and other organizations, including utilities, auto finance companies, mortgage servicers, financial service providers, government agencies and other businesses. The significant majority of the segment's revenue was generated in the United States during all periods presented, with the remainder generated in Argentina. The Business Solutions operating segment facilitates payment and foreign exchange solutions, cross-border, cross-currency transactions, for small and medium size enterprises and other organizations and individuals. The majority of the segment's business relates to exchanges of currency at the spot rate, which enables customers to make cross-currency payments. In addition, in certain countries, it writes foreign currency forward and option contracts for customers to facilitate future payments. Travelex Global Business Payments (TGBP), which was acquired in November 2011, is included in this segment. Some of its services are subject to card association rules and regulations. For example, an independent standards-setting organization, the Payment Card Industry ("PCI") Security Standards Council (including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. International) developed a set of comprehensive requirements concerning payment card account security through the transaction process, called the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The Vigo, Orlandi Valuta, Speedpay, Paymap(r), Equity Accelerator, Just in Time EFT, Western Union Quick Collect, Quick Pay, Quick Cash, Convenience Pay, Pago Facil and other trademarks and service marks are also important to the Company. Its competitors include banks, credit unions, ATM providers and operators, card associations, card-based payments providers such as issuers of e-money, travel cards or stored-value cards, informal remittance systems, web-based services, telephone payment systems, postal organizations, retailers, check cashers, mail and courier services, currency exchanges and traditional money transfer companies. The Company's business is subject to a range of laws and regulations enacted by the United States federal government, each of the states, many localities and other countries.lessless
