Amadeus IT Group isn't looking to acquire Shift4 Payments, a New-York-listed payments processor, an Amadeus spokesperson said Thursday.

The Spanish travel-booking group is "aware of rumors regarding Amadeus and Shift4," the spokesperson said. However, "Amadeus is not interested in this transaction," the spokesperson added.

On Wednesday, Reuters reported that Amadeus and global fintech and payments company Fiserv are competing to buy Shift4 Payments and preparing to submit final offers in the coming weeks.
