National Processing Inc. said it has agreed to acquire FA Holdings Inc., an independent sales organization in the merchant processing field.

The $64 million deal is seen as a response to recent erosion in National Processing's share of the merchant-acquiring business. In the past year Wal-Mart Stores and United Airlines shifted their credit card acceptance business to National Processing's larger competitor, First Data Corp., the market leader.
