Superior Value for MoneyGram Shareholders $18.00 +18.4% $15.20 Ant Financial Transaction Euronet Hostile Proposal Value Per Share Value Per Share 5


LOGO

Greater Certainty of Closing REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS U.S. antitrust clearance obtained Not subject to any antitrust approvals outside the U.S. Several state license change of control approvals already received All other states substantially underway Actively engaged with CFIUS Success with CFIUS review in prior Ant Financial transaction Antitrust concerns – consolidating 2 of top 3 global competitors in multiple markets Significant business overlap in countries with robust competition laws U.S. antitrust investigation opened EU regulators known for their tough antitrust enforcement stance Risk of lengthy antitrust review Despite antitrust concerns, Euronet was only willing to offer limited commitments to obtain regulatory approvals High pro forma leverage ratio may impact state change of control approvals 6


LOGO

Stronger Capital Structure CAPITAL STRUCTURE One of the world’s leading digital payments companies with substantial financial resources Financing provided by a broad group of leading U.S. banks At $15.20 per share, acquisition debt would have significantly strained balance sheet Limited free cash flow in the U.S. to service debt as foreign earnings are not repatriated Pro forma company would have been unable to invest significantly in MoneyGram business and compliance 7


LOGO

Better for the U.S. Economy STAKEHOLDER CONSIDERATIONS Committed to investing in and growing MoneyGram’s U.S.-based operations and creating jobs in America Dallas HQ, retain management, employees and facilities Unwavering commitment to completing a transaction Massive cost synergies – likely requires job cuts and agent location and facility eliminations With just 150 employees at its HQ in the U.S., Euronet’s primary operations are in Eastern Europe, not in the U.S. Limited investments and tax payments in the U.S. as foreign earnings are not repatriated 8


LOGO

Genuine Commitment to Transaction DEMONSTRATED INTEREST Improved terms with fully committed financing from global banks Full resources of Ant Financial focused on closing Unwavering commitment to completing a transaction Several opportunities to buy MoneyGram over the last decade Withdrew interest in doing deal at $11 -$12 per share in Dec. 2016 due to valuation and financing concerns 9


LOGO

Commitment to Protecting Consumer Data CUSTOMER DATA SAFEGUARDS AND COMPLIANCE MoneyGram will continue to operate business independently MoneyGram’s U.S. consumer data will continue to be stored on U.S.-based servers and managed by MoneyGram employees Committed to data privacy Actively work with law enforcement in the U.S. and abroad to fight illicit financing; all cooperation will continue Debt burden would have hindered Euronet’s ability to invest in MoneyGram’s systems, compliance, and AML infrastructure Euronet and its agents have recently been imposed fines for compliance violations In 2011, Euronet failed to properly encrypt customers’ data, resulting in breach of more than 2 million credit card accounts The majority of Euronet’s data centers are located outside the U.S. where data protection standards are weaker 10
