MoneyGram principally provides money transfer services, which make up nearly 90% of company revenue. It also provides bill payment services, issues money orders, and processes checks. The company has a global network that includes over 350,000 locations in more than 200 countries. Customers can also access the company’s services online and at kiosks. Most company revenue consists of customer fees on all of its services. It also earns revenue on exchange spreads when money transfer transactions involve different “send” and “receive” currencies. MoneyGram is the second largest provider of money transfers in the world, the company is based in the United States with headquarters in Dallas. MoneyGram was first established as a subsidiary of Integrated Payment Systems and afterward became an independent company before it was acquired by Travelers in 1998. In 2004, Travelers Express became what is known today as MoneyGram International. By 2006, MoneyGram International had expanded internationally to include over 96,000 agents in regions such as the Asian-Pacific, Eastern Europe, and Central America. During the financial crisis, MoneyGram's shares fell 96 percent from 2007 to 2009. It lost more than $1.6 billion from investments in securities backed by risky mortgages in 2008, and the losses led the company to sell a majority stake to Thomas H. Lee Partners and Goldman Sachs in exchange for a cash infusion. During the drop, U.S. Bancorp shifted its money transfer services to Western Union. The company began to see profitability again in 2009.
In 2013 Moneygram began considering a sale. In 2014, Moneygram lost a relationship with Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and afterward began restructuring to cut costs. From their peak in 2013 until late 2015, shares fell about 70%. Moneygram closed a Global Customer Care Operations center in Lakewood, CO resulting in over 500 layoffs. Furthermore, MoneyGram closed its 376-person Brooklyn Center operation in 2015. Moneygram has offshored numerous positions to Warsaw, Poland from its Colorado and Minnesota locations for additional cost-cutting. In 2015, the company's agent network in Africa reached 25,000 locations, including an agreement with the Mauritius Post Office. Between late October 2016 and January 2017, Moneygram's shares doubled in value. On January 26, 2017, Ant Financial Services Group announced a deal to acquire MoneyGram International for $880 million; the deal subsequently collapsed after it was rejected by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
