  • Entered into Kansas iGaming market, extending longstanding payments partnerships with multiple leading operators
  • Continued expansion in Latin America, launching 10 Paysafe merchants into the region; expanded into Argentina with market-leading eCash payment solution
  • Won ‘Payment Solution & Innovation’ award at the SBC Awards Latinoamérica, recognizing Paysafe's ongoing payments support for iGaming operators in Latin America

* Volumes exclude embedded finance related volumes of $10.4 billion.

Reverse Stock Split

Today Paysafe also announced that it intends to hold a special meeting of shareholders on December 8, 2022 to seek approval for a 1-for-12 reverse stock split of the Company’s common shares and a corresponding decrease in the total number of authorized shares. If approved by shareholders, the reverse split is expected to be completed prior to year-end.

The Board reserves its right to delay the implementation or elect not to proceed with the reverse stock split if it determines that implementing a reverse split is no longer in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.

The reverse stock split will affect all shareholders uniformly and will not affect any shareholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company, except as a result of rounding for fractional amounts. Shareholders are not expected to receive fractional shares in connection with the reverse stock split. Instead, shareholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive fractional shares because they hold a number of shares not evenly divisible by 12 are expected to receive an additional fraction of a share to round up to the next whole share.

Additional information regarding the special meeting, including a proxy statement, will be sent to shareholders and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Changes to Segment Names and Reporting Structure

Paysafe will rename and realign its two reportable segments as follows:

  • Merchant Solutions (renamed from US Acquiring) will continue to include the Company's US Acquiring business and will also include the integrated & eCommerce (IES) business.
    • IES was previously included within Digital Commerce.
  • Digital Wallets (renamed from Digital Commerce) will continue to include the Company's digital wallets and eCash businesses.

The Company believes this new segment presentation better aligns with Paysafe's strategy and how Paysafe's management reviews its financial results to drive decisions about the business. Segment reporting under the renamed and realigned segments will begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. The recast of certain financial information for 2020, 2021 and 2022 are available within the materials accompanying this press release.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $366.0 million, an increase of 4%, compared to $353.6 million in the prior year period, driven by strong revenue growth from US Acquiring, which increased 12%, partly offset by Digital Commerce, which declined 4%. Excluding a $23.0 million unfavorable impact from changes in foreign exchange rates, total revenue increased 10% compared to the prior year period. Digital Commerce revenue increased 8% on a constant currency basis, reflecting growth from acquisitions completed in the last twelve months and growth from new products, which more than offset an impact from the Russia-Ukraine war totaling approximately $4.1 million.

Net income attributable to the Company for the third quarter was $1.0 million, compared to a net loss of $147.2 million in the prior year period. The increase in net income largely reflects the intangible impairment expense in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was $95.5 million, a decrease of 10%, compared to $106.4 million in the prior year period, including an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange rates, higher value added tax (“VAT”) expense resulting from historic refunds and releases in the prior year period, as well as an impact from the Russia-Ukraine war. These headwinds were partly offset by an increase in Adjusted EBITDA from the US Acquiring segment as well as the contribution from the acquisitions. Excluding the $5.6 million unfavorable impact from changes in foreign exchange rates, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5% compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 26.1%, compared to 30.1% in the prior year period.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter was $29.2 million, compared to $39.4 million in the prior year period. The change in adjusted net income was largely attributable to higher interest expense as well as the decline in Adjusted EBITDA.

Third quarter net cash outflow from operating activities was $6.2 million, compared to net cash inflow of $51.6 million in the prior year period, mainly reflecting the timing of settlement of customer funds. Free cash flow was $106.5 million, compared to $70.2 million in the prior year period.

Reorganization and Recapitalization (the “Transaction”)

On March 30, 2021, Paysafe completed the previously announced transaction with FTAC, a special purpose acquisition company, which resulted in Paysafe Limited acquiring, and becoming the successor to, the Accounting Predecessor. Simultaneously, it completed the merger with FTAC with an exchange of the shares and warrants issued by Paysafe Limited for those of FTAC. The acquisition was accounted for as a capital reorganization followed by the merger with FTAC, which was treated as a recapitalization. Following the transaction, both the Accounting Predecessor and FTAC are indirect wholly owned subsidiaries of Paysafe Limited. Upon completion of the Transaction, the common stock and warrants began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbols “PSFE” and “PSFE WS,” respectively, on March 31, 2021.

Basis of Presentation

The financial information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 included in this press release reflect, and is based upon, information of Paysafe Limited after giving effect to the transaction with Foley Trasimene Acquisition Corporation II (“FTAC”) completed on March 30, 2021.

Following an internal review of the disclosures in our terms and conditions of foreign exchange rates in our Digital Commerce business for the period January 2018 to August 2022, and pursuant to discussions with our regulator that were initiated by us and concluded in September 2022, we agreed to provide payments to certain customers. As a result, we recorded a provision of $33.6 million related to this matter as of June 30, 2022 in our interim financial statements filed on Form 6-K October 19, 2022. This was a subsequent event that occurred after the filing of our second quarter 2022 earnings release and therefore was not reflected in the financial results included therein. The following line items have been updated to reflect this provision: Net (loss) / income attributable to the company, restructuring and other costs, and income tax (benefit).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. This includes Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization), Gross Profit Margin (excluding depreciation and amortization), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Free cash flow and Free cash flow conversion, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share, which are supplemental measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”).

Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) is defined as revenue less cost of services (excluding depreciation and amortization). Gross Profit Margin (excluding depreciation and amortization) is defined as Gross Profit (excluding depreciation and amortization) as a percentage of revenue. Management believes Gross Profit to be a useful profitability measure to assess the performance of our businesses and ability to manage cost.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) before the impact of income tax (benefit)/expense, interest expense, net, depreciation and amortization, share based compensation, impairment expense on goodwill and intangible assets, restructuring and other costs, loss/(gain) on disposal of a subsidiaries and other assets, net, and other income/(expense), net. These adjustments also include certain costs and transaction items that are not reflective of the underlying operating performance of the Company. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Revenue. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA to be a useful profitability measure to assess the performance of our businesses and improves the comparability of operating results across reporting periods.

Adjusted net income excludes the impact of certain non-operational and non-cash items. Adjusted net income is defined as net income/(loss) attributable to the Company before the impact of other non-operating income / (expense), net, impairment expense on goodwill and intangible assets, restructuring and other costs, accelerated amortization of debt fees, amortization of acquired assets, loss/(gain) on disposal of subsidiaries and other assets, share based compensation, discrete tax items and the income tax (benefit)/expense on these non-GAAP adjustments. Adjusted net income per share is adjusted net income as defined above divided by adjusted weighted average dilutive shares outstanding. Management believes the removal of certain non-operational and non-cash items from net income enhances shareholders ability to evaluate the Company’s business performance and profitability by improving comparability of operating results across reporting periods.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows provided by/used in operating activities, adjusted for the impact of capital expenditure, payments relating to restructuring and other costs, cash paid for interest and movements in customer accounts and other restricted cash. Capital expenditure includes purchases of property plant & equipment and purchases of other intangible assets, including software development costs. Capital expenditure does not include purchases of merchant portfolios. Free cash flow conversion is defined as free cash flow as a percentage of Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information about the amount of cash generated by the business.

Management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, including Gross Profit, Gross Profit Margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Adjusted net income, when considered together with the Company’s results presented in accordance with GAAP, provide users with useful supplemental information in comparing the operating results across reporting periods by excluding items that are not considered indicative of Paysafe’s core operating performance. In addition, management believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information in assessing the Company’s results on a basis that fosters comparability across periods by excluding the impact on the Company’s reported GAAP results of acquisitions and dispositions that have occurred in such periods. However, these non-GAAP measures exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing Paysafe’s financial results or position. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to revenue, net income, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under GAAP.

You should be aware that Paysafe’s presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. In addition, the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA and Gross Profit provided herein have not been reconciled to comparable GAAP measures due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations. We have reconciled the historical non-GAAP financial measures presented herein to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of our forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures cannot be provided without unreasonable effort because of the inherent difficulty of accurately forecasting the occurrence and financial impact of the adjusting items necessary for such reconciliations that have not yet occurred, are out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.
