Moody's: Visa's acquisition of Plaid is credit positive

Moody's Investors Service said Visa Inc.'s proposed acquisition of Plaid Inc. is credit positive and has no immediate impact on published ratings or outlook.

Moody's said it believes that the strategic rationale for the acquisition is strong.
