Euronet Worldwide, an electronic payments provider, has reported a net loss attributable to the company of $12.3m, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009, compared to a net loss attributable to the company of $8.6m, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008.

According to the company, net loss for the first quarter of 2009 was $12m, compared to a net loss of $8.1m during the corresponding quarter of 2008.
