NCR Corp. (NYSE: NCR), the 129-year-old maker of cash registers and other payment-processing systems, agreed to acquire Digital Insight Corp. for $1.65 billion to gain software for online and mobile banking.
     The purchase of Digital Insight, controlled by Thoma Bravo LLC, is expected in the first quarter of next year, NCR said today in a statement. The transaction will boost adjusted 2014 earnings, NCR said.
     NCR is broadening its technology as customers seek new options for commerce through mobile phones and other devices. Along with the $84 million purchase of Alaric Systems Ltd., a deal that closed today, the Digital Insight acquisition will improve the software platform NCR offers banks, the company said.
     Shares of NCR dropped 2.2 percent to $34.19 at the close in New York, before the transaction was announced. They have climbed 34 percent this year.
