  3. Payment Industry Trends

  4. Payment Industry TrendsMigration From Checks to Electronic Payments *PayStream Advisors: Value of Purchasing Cards 2012

  5. Payment Industry Trends North American Purchasing Card Spending ($B) PROJECTED *2012 RPMG Purchasing Card Survey

  6. On average, 52% of transactions under $2,500 were paid with a purchasing card On average, 31% of transactions between $2,500 and $10,000 were paid with a purchasing card Average organizational purchasing card spend is expected to increase over the 2011 base year by 8% in 2012, by 26% by 2014 and by 48% by 2016 The most common use of purchasing cards is for office supplies, MRO, computer hardware and software and peripherals Electronic Accounts Payable (EAP) spend grew by 67% in the two year period from 2009-2011 – increasing use of cards as an alternate means of supplier payment! Payment Industry Trends Purchasing Behavior and Performance (2012 RPMG)

  7. Card Program Fundamentals

  8. Card Program Fundamentals Deployment Across the Procure to Pay Cycle Organizations capturing the greatest percentages of transactions and spend have multiple card programs • For smaller dollar decentralized purchasing • Reduces time for receipt and payment of goods • A lot of value for both buyer and vendors Employee Purchasing cards Distributed Cards • For travel & entertainment expenses • Preferred method of payment for these vendors • Improves financial controls (SOX compliance) Employee Travel cards Single Use Card Accounts • For one time payment vendors • XML capabilities through Web Services • Improves payment cycle time Card Building Blocks Ghosted Purchasing cards • For preferred (contract) vendor ordering • Facilitates online ordering and payment • A lot of value for both buyer and vendors Non-Distributed Cards • Payments requiring backend approval • Enables card settlement on PO’s • Automated solution for both push & pull approaches Electronic AP cards

  9. Card Program FundamentalsDeployment Across the Procure to Pay Cycle

  10. Card Program FundamentalsRisk Mitigation/Compliance Considerations Traditional Point of Sale Controls • Merchant category controls (MCC) • Per transaction spend limits • Daily, monthly, & annual spend limits • Velocity limits Management Visibility into Spend • Real time visibility into recent authorizations • Next day visibility into processed transactions • Reporting of potential exception activities Fraud Monitoring • PNC provides proactive fraud monitoring 24x7 through the analysis of suspect spending patterns • Utilizing an intelligent neural network that risk-rates the probability of fraudulent transactions based on a card’s past spending history and PNC determined fraud criteria queues Liability Waiver Coverage • Provides insurance coverage addressing cardholder misuse up to $100,000 • Covers posted transactions surrounding notification of termination • Covers 75 prior to, and 15 days from, notification of termination

  11. Assists clients with the conversion of their accounts payable payments from check to electronic card payments Payor-initiated solution which allows clients to produce a “card run” from their Accounts Payable System … with subsequent settlement execution through the card payment network Systemic funding of vendor for approved payments Combined with delivery of electronic remittance information Variety of Supplier settlement solutions Opportunity to penetrate more strategic spend Card Program FundamentalsElectronic AP Card Solutions - Overview

  12. ActivePay for Accounts PayableCard-based Payment Mechanism • Push Settlement • Funds directed to suppliers established merchant service account • Electronic remittance advice directed to supplier • Supplier funded in 24 - 48 hours Current Process Remains the Same Invoice • Pull - Single Use Settlement • Approved funds added to single use card account • E-mail directed to supplier • Supplier will obtain single use card account number, expiration date, CVV • Supplier funded in 24-48 hours • Company manages approved payments which remain outstanding ActivePay Payment Decision Voucher Receiving Sourcing • AP Card Benefits • Retention of current sourcing, approval, and payment decisioning • Significant increase of card penetration into overall spend…resulting interchange revenue sharing potential • Natural extension in payment terms • Elimination of check-based execution costs: postage, banking fees, etc. • Pull – Dedicated Settlement • Approved funds added to dedicated supplier card account • Electronic remittance advice directed to supplier • Supplier processes along with other card transactions • Supplier funded in 24 – 48 hours • Company manages approved payments which remain outstanding

  13. Current sourcing, approval and AP processing activities are unaffected Accounts are only funded for amounts approved and authorized No card account details are housed within Accounts Payable environment or are transmitted to PNC Automated transmission of payment authorization file to PNC No physical card issuance PNC solutions fully PCI-DSS compliant – protecting payment details Fraud monitoring and reporting PNC has experienced $0 fraud across our epayables programs since inception in 2004 Card Program FundamentalsElectronic AP Card Solutions – Key Control Considerations

  14. Value Proposition Efficiency, Revenue Share, Float, and Other Technology Benefits

  15. Value Proposition Benefits of Card Programs Convenience ranks as the number one benefit of p-card programs, followed by the receipt of rebates *2012 PayStream Advisors

  16. Integration and confirmation of receiving function prior to payment decisioning Forces approval and compliance of company business rules prior to payment Complete vendor file – timeliness and accessibility to this vendor data varies by system (more problematic in older legacy deployments) Complex requisition rules/interface can promote maverick spending with associated exception request for disbursement workflow – degrading A/P processing efficiencies Expense and complexity of maintaining vendor file – particularly for one-time vendors or other small dollar items Generally characterized by a relative high cost to process Efficiency Traditional Procure to Pay Model Characteristics

  17. EfficiencyCharge Coding Card Transactions GL Coding and Transaction Splitting Enhanced Data, Level I, II, & III Approval Rules and History • Review, validate and enhance transaction details • Custom Charge Coding access, transaction splitting, complex tax estimation • Receipt integration • Reviewed transactions will be automatically available for Approval or Extract

  18. Interchange Revenue Sharing • Accepting merchants are assessed interchange fees for access to the card processing network (Visa, MC, AMEX, etc.) • PNC, as a Card Issuer receives a portion of the interchange and can share a portion of the interchange they receive • Rebates paid on qualified spend – use of tiers to determine appropriate rebate (top tier applied to all spend) • PNC can either rebates or reward models through Visa Extras • Financial proposal impacted by billing cycle length, payment terms, number/size of expected transactions

  19. Payment FloatWorking Capital and Payment Float Impacts – Electronic AP Cards Billing Cycle: Your company is able to choose any date between the 4th and the 25th of the month, or the 27th of the month, for the end of its billing cycle. PNC Bank’s standard billing cycle period is 30 calendar days. Date 6/7 6/10 6/13 6/16 6/19 6/22 6/25 6/28 7/1 7/4 7/7 7/10 7/13 7/16 7/19 7/22 7/25 7/28 7/31 8/3 8/6 Days 0 3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36 39 42 45 48 51 54 57 60 Vendor Purchase Vendor Payment Terms n/30 Payments to vendors can be made on any day throughout the PNC Billing Cycle, we are assuming that on average, you company will pick up 15 days of Payment Float based on the 30 day PNC Billing Cycle. Additional payment float days can be gained based on 7 payment terms. Traditional Check-Based Settlement Traditional Check Payment Check to Vendor 22 Day Average Float Extension Payment Terms: 7 Days Check Payment to Vendor Card-Based Settlement ACH to PNC Payments made to Vendors throughout Billing Cycle PNC Billing Cycle Start Date PNC Billing Cycle End Date

  23. Payment Optimization Strategies

  24. Payment Optimization StrategiesUnderstanding Payment Economics *Revenue Share based on rebate of 100 bps. Float based on 3% Cost of Capital.

  25. Payment Optimization Strategies Creating an Optimal Payment Mix While it is not feasible to pay all suppliers with card, by deploying a payment protocol model of card first, ACH second, and check last, Company’s can migrate toward an optimum payment mix. Distributed – P-Card & T&E Card Misc. Expense, Local Procurement and Individual Travel Centralized/Recurring Expenses (Temp Help, Office Suppliers, Courier, Large Ticket Travel) Vendor Ghost Card – E-Commerce with Card Smaller Dollar – Recurring & Non-Recurring Card Based Settlement, ACH and Check Remaining Direct & Indirect Spend Card Based Settlement, ACH and Check Capital Markets, Fiduciary, Tax, Cap Ex Wire Transfer, ACH and Check

  26. Payment Optimization Strategies Creating an Optimal Payment Mix – Vendor Identification/Engagement PNC Vendor Analysis • Analysis of vendor base to determine which vendors are likely to take cards • Focus on suppliers accepting currently card payments Vendor Engagement • Communication with potential suppliers • Length and scope of calling campaign • Procedural, scripted discussion • Do not negotiate alternate terms Other • Modify future bid language to reserve right to pay via card • Optional merchant service enablement

  27. Industry Best Practice Highlights

  28. Card Usage Best PracticesMeasured Performance and Improvement Strategy • Designate dedicated p-card administrator and empower the position • Energize program with development of new policy and limit channels to by-pass card usage • Educate internal stakeholders and suppliers through formal expansion program • Seek greater transaction detail • Involve p-card administrators in strategic sourcing initiatives • Integrate p-cards with primary transaction systems – value of electronic AP cards • 22% of spend captured through card • 29% of vendors paid via card • 28% of transactions via card Best In Class Average • 11% of spend captured through card • 19% of vendors paid via card • 14% of transactions via card Laggards • 6% of spend captured through card • 11% of vendors paid via card • 8% of transactions via card Best in Class reflects top 20% of respondents, Average reflects middle 50% and laggards reflect bottom 30% of respondents Aberdeen P-Card Benchmark Report

  29. Card Usage Best PracticesHigh Performing Program Commonalities • Distribute on average twice as many cards than low performance programs • Allow departments or business units to decide on how many cards should be distributed • Less likely to restrict card use to only supervisors, managers, or purchasing personnel Distribution and Access Control • Have per transaction limits that are, on average, twice as high than low performance programs • Customize monthly card spend limits depending upon individual spending responsibility or position • Have a wider “allowable span of spend” for any given category of goods or services Sourcing • Conduct data mining of card transactions to ensure policy compliance • Restrict some or all of their card activity to “preferred vendors” • Use card spending data as basis to request higher discounts from vendors RPMG P-Card Benchmark Survey Report

  30. Card Usage Best PracticesHigh Performing Program Commonalities Other • Have a higher level of top management support than low performance programs • Twice as likely than low performance programs to require purchasing department to refuse to process requisitions that could be bought on card • Increase use of ‘ghost” or “other” card accounts • Allow automatic debits (charges) to card for recurring payments • Have an ongoing method of communicating card information to cardholders and managers • Evaluate spending patterns of cardholders with high number of disputed transactions and deactivate unused cards • Formally audit and review card spending approval • Reduce number of vendors in AP master file because of card use RPMG P-Card Benchmark Survey Report

  31. Industry Best Practice Highlights Controls to Prevent Misuse Defining card spending limits is the number one mechanism companies implement to prevent card misuse *2012 PayStream Advisors
