REPAY Launches ‘Instant Funding’ through Push Payments

Visa Direct enables seamless real-time[1] push payments for 24/7/365 access to funds

ATLANTA, February 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — REPAY Realtime Electronic Payments has officially launched Instant Funding, a new and innovative service to send funds directly to eligible Visa debit and prepaid cards via electronic transactions enabled by Visa Direct. REPAY is the premier payment technology provider for the consumer lending and healthcare spaces, offering the most advanced and secure omnichannel payment services on the market. The addition of Instant Funding strategically complements REPAY’s current product suite as businesses will now be able to seamlessly accept payments and disburse funds to customers from a single user interface 24/7/365.   

With REPAY Instant Funding, lenders can say goodbye to issuing outdated checks and submitting slow ACH transactions, which means consumers will no longer have to wait days for funds to become available. Instant Funding transactions are processed in real-time[2] via Visa Direct, Visa’s real-time push payments platform, which reverses a normal transaction, “pushing” the funds to an eligible Visa debit or prepaid card.

“At REPAY, we use our technology to remove the friction and processing delays often associated with payments and traditional fund disbursements,” said Chris Arnette, VP of Product Management at REPAY. “Instant Funding will enable our clients to gain efficiencies and to provide a more customer-friendly experience. In today’s fast-paced world, it’s all about immediate gratification – and that’s what Instant Funding can provide.”

Instant Funding offers an incredible opportunity for REPAY’s merchants to differentiate themselves in the marketplace by delivering quick, convenient and secure funding experiences to their customers. Merchants who use Instant Funding will have access to REPAY’s dedicated implementation services, premier customer service, and professional risk management resources.

“With push payments representing nearly a $10 trillion opportunity, REPAY strategically identified the need to offer our Instant Funding product. We have invested in state-of-the-art technology to deliver a first-class, convenient funding experience in a highly secure environment while providing our merchants with access to real-time data insights,” said Shaler Alias, President of REPAY.

“We are excited to be working with REPAY to deliver a payment solution that helps businesses run more efficiently,” said Cecilia Frew Senior Vice President, North America Push Payments, Visa.  “Visa Direct helps meet the demand for fast, convenient and secure access to funds that allows businesses to operate and interact with customers seamlessly.”

The launch of Instant Funding comes at a time of immense growth and opportunity for REPAY. In January, Thunder Bridge Acquisition, Ltd. (NASDAQ: TBRG) and REPAY, announced that Thunder Bridge (“Thunder Bridge”) a special purpose acquisition company, will acquire REPAY and the combined company will continue as a publicly-listed company. Completion of the transactions is subject to approval by the stockholders of Thunder Bridge and certain other conditions. The transactions are expected to close in the second quarter of 2019.

[1] Actual fund availability depends on receiving financial institution and region. Visa requires fast-funds enabled issuers to make funds available to their recipient cardholders within a maximum of 30 minutes of approving the transaction.

REPAY to Merge with Thunder Bridge Acquisition, Ltd.

Atlanta, GA and Great Falls, VA – January 22, 2019 Repay Holdings, LLC, a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, together with its parent, Hawk Parent Holdings, LLC (together, “REPAY”), and Thunder Bridge Acquisition, Ltd. (NASDAQ: TBRG) (“Thunder Bridge”), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement.  Under the terms of the agreement, Thunder Bridge will acquire REPAY and the combined company (the “Company”) will continue as a publicly-listed company with an implied enterprise value at closing of approximately $653 million, based on current assumptions.

Upon the close of the transaction, the Company intends to change its name to Repay Holdings Corporation and is expected to continue to trade on The Nasdaq Stock Market under a new ticker symbol. REPAY’s management team, led by John Morris, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Shaler Alias, Co-Founder and President, and Tim Murphy, Chief Financial Officer, will continue to lead the Company. REPAY’s existing majority equity holder, Corsair Capital, a leading private equity investor in the financial services industry, is expected to remain the Company’s largest stockholder.

REPAY processed approximately $7 billion of payment volume in 2018 across diverse verticals, such as personal loans, automotive loans and receivables management. Management believes these verticals are underserved and accordingly provide significant growth opportunities over the next several years. The Company serves more than 3,000 clients via a proprietary, omni-channel payment platform that reduces complexity for merchants and enhances the consumer experience. In addition to highly-recurring revenue, REPAY has achieved strong Adjusted EBITDA growth over the last three years through market expansion, increased penetration of existing customers, new client wins and strategic acquisitions.

Gary Simanson, President and CEO of Thunder Bridge, said, “REPAY has achieved impressive growth while also delivering high levels of profitability in an exciting and underpenetrated area of the payments sector. John Morris and his team have developed a technology platform that is well-positioned with over 50 software integration partnerships to service customers with a footprint representing more than 11,000 locations across the country. We are looking forward to partnering with REPAY’s management team and Corsair in the next stage of the Company’s development.”

“We are very excited to continue to execute on REPAY’s growth plan as a public company and greatly appreciate Corsair’s continued involvement and partnership,” said John Morris, co-founder and CEO of REPAY. “We have developed a compelling tech-enabled value proposition that allows our merchants to expand the scope and depth of their services to meet the evolving needs of their customers. As a publicly-listed company, we will have access to capital to further support our acquisition strategy and invest in technology while continuing to develop software integration partners. We remain focused on delivering the highest levels of service to our merchants as we strengthen our leading position in the industry.”

James Kirk, Managing Director of Corsair Capital, commented, “We are proud of all REPAY has achieved since Corsair’s investment in 2016, and we look forward to continuing to support the Company’s development of value-added payment solutions. With over $500 billion of total payment volume, including over $200 billion of debit payment volume, projected next year across REPAY’s existing verticals and the ongoing evaluation of a pipeline of potential acquisition targets, we believe there are significant growth opportunities for the business in the future.”

“The payments industry is one of the most dynamic segments of the financial services space, and REPAY has established itself as an integrated player and early-mover in an important and underserved sector of the market,” added Jeremy Schein, Managing Director of Corsair Capital. “Given REPAY’s growth and history of pioneering innovative payment solutions, we see compelling opportunities ahead and look forward to our continued partnership with the REPAY management team.”

Transaction Summary

The transaction reflects an implied enterprise value at closing of $653 million, based on current assumptions. The cash component of the purchase price to be paid to the equity holders of REPAY is expected to be funded by Thunder Bridge’s cash in trust and debt financing, for which a commitment has been obtained. The balance of the consideration payable to the existing REPAY equity holders will consist of equity interests of the surviving subsidiary which will be exchangeable into shares of common stock of the Company at the option of such equity holders.  Existing REPAY equity holders have the potential to receive an earnout of additional equity interests of the surviving subsidiary if certain stock price targets are met as set forth in the definitive merger agreement.  Corsair Capital and the REPAY management team will remain investors by rolling over significant equity into the combined company.

Pursuant to the merger agreement, Thunder Bridge will domesticate from a Cayman Islands exempted company to a Delaware corporation and a subsidiary of Thunder Bridge will merge with and into Hawk Parent Holdings, LLC, with Hawk Parent Holdings, LLC continuing as the surviving entity and a subsidiary of Thunder Bridge. The corporate name of Thunder Bridge will change to Repay Holdings Corporation.

The transactions have been unanimously approved by the boards of both REPAY and Thunder Bridge.  Completion of the transactions is subject to approval by the stockholders of Thunder Bridge and certain other conditions. The transactions are expected to close in the second quarter of 2019.

REPAY uses certain non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its business, measure its performance and make strategic decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income prior to interest expense and depreciation and amortization, as adjusted to add back certain non-cash charges and account for non-recurring items, such as other expenses, non-cash gain from the change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction expenses, share-based compensation charges, and other charges. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as substitutes for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP but instead considered alongside such measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies in the industry may calculate it differently from how REPAY calculates it, reducing its overall usefulness. This communication does not provide a reconciliation of any forward-looking, estimated non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because calculating the components would involve numerous estimates and judgments that are unduly burdensome to prepare and may imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or potentially misleading to investors.

GEORGE, Utah and TAMPA, Fla.Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to creating efficiencies and elevating the customer experience, Preferred Collection and Management Services, Inc.
