Business description: Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAWK and HAWKB) is Blackhawk is a leading prepaid payment network utilizing proprietary technology to offer a broad range of gift cards, other prepaid products and payment services in the United States and 20 other countries. We believe our extensive payment network provides significant benefits to our three primary constituents: consumers who purchase the products and services we offer, content providers who offer branded gift cards and other prepaid products that are redeemable for goods and services, and distribution partners who sell those products. For consumers, we provide convenience by offering a broad variety of quality brands and content at retail distribution locations and online, enhanced by customer promotions and loyalty incentive programs that may be offered by our distribution partners. For our content providers, we drive incremental sales by providing access to millions of consumers and creating new customer relationships. For our distribution partners, we provide a significant, high-growth and highly productive product category that drives incremental store traffic and customer loyalty. Our technology platform allows us to efficiently and seamlessly connect our network participants and offer new products and services as payment technology evolves. We believe the breadth of our distribution network and product content, combined with our consumer reach and technology platform, create powerful network effects that enhance value for our constituents and fuel growth in our business.
