Recognition honors those companies who lead with integrity and align principle with action

COLUMBUS, Ga., March 13, 2017 — TSYS (NYSE: TSS) announced today that it has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company®.

TSYS has been recognized five times in the last six years, and is one of only seven companies in the financial services industry to receive this multi-year distinction, underscoring its commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices.

“At TSYS we operate in a transparent, fair and ethical manner in all of the interactions with our clients, our shareholders and the local communities in which we operate,” said M. Troy Woods, chairman and chief executive officer, TSYS. “It is only through the hard work and dedication of our nearly 11,500 team members around the world that this honor is possible for our company.”

“Over the last eleven years we have seen the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business advantage,” said Timothy Erblich, chief executive officer, Ethisphere. "Congratulations to everyone at TSYS for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company."

The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics QuotientTM framework developed over years of research to provide a means to assess an organization’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. Scores are generated in five categories: ethics and compliance; corporate citizenship and responsibility; culture of ethics; governance and leadership; innovation and reputation.
