REPAY Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Financial Results

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Repay Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: RPAY) (“REPAY” or the “Company”), a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019.

“2019 was a milestone year for REPAY. We completed our business combination with Thunder Bridge, which resulted in REPAY becoming a publicly traded company. We also announced two strategic acquisitions – TriSource Solutions, which increased our back end capabilities, and APS Payments, which brought us into the B2B vertical and increased our total addressable market by more than one trillion dollars. Including the impact of these acquisitions, we experienced year-over-year growth in card payment volume and gross profit of 44% and 43%, respectively. Organically, we also had a very productive year reporting 29% organic gross profit growth compared to 2018,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY. “2020 is shaping up to be another great year for the Company. With the addition of Ventanex, which brings us significant growth opportunities in the mortgage servicing and B2B healthcare markets, we now have a total annual projected payment volume opportunity of $2.3 trillion. Our leading platform, coupled with this attractive market opportunity, positions us well for robust growth and profitability.”

1 Please refer to “Basis of Presentation” below for an explanation of the presentation of this information.

Gross profit for 2019 represents total revenue, including the impact of the adoption of ASC 606, less other costs of services. Gross profit for 2018 represents total revenue, without the impact of the adoption of ASC 606, less interchange, network, other fees and other cost of services. The adoption of ASC 606 had no impact on gross profit. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization and certain other non-cash charges and non-recurring items. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income (loss) adjusted for amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and certain other non-cash charges and non-recurring items. Adjusted Net Income per share is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding (on as-converted basis) for the three months ended December 31, 2019, and for the Successor period from July 11, 2019 to December 31, 2019 (excluding certain shares that were subject to forfeiture). See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to their most comparable GAAP measure provided below for additional information.

Business Combination

The Company was formed upon closing of the merger (the “Business Combination”) of Hawk Parent Holdings LLC (together with Repay Holdings, LLC and its other subsidiaries, “Hawk Parent”) with a subsidiary of Thunder Bridge Acquisition, Ltd, (“Thunder Bridge”), a special purpose acquisition company, on July 11, 2019 (the “Closing Date”). On the Closing Date, Thunder Bridge changed its name to Repay Holdings Corporation.

Basis of Presentation

As a result of the Business Combination, the Company was identified as the acquirer for accounting purposes, and Hawk Parent, which owned the business conducted prior to the closing of the Business Combination, is the acquiree and accounting “Predecessor.” The Company is the “Successor” for periods after the Closing Date, which includes consolidation of the Hawk Parent business subsequent to the Closing Date. The Company’s financial statement presentation reflects the Hawk Parent business as the “Predecessor” for periods through the Closing Date. Where the Company discusses results for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2019, we are referring to the combined results of the Predecessor for the periods from January 1, 2019 through July 10, 2019 and the Successor for the period from the Closing Date through December 31, 2019. The combined basis of presentation reflects a simple arithmetic combination of the Predecessor and Successor periods. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting, and the Successor financial statements reflect a new basis of accounting that is based on the fair value of net assets acquired. As a result of the application of the acquisition method of accounting as of the effective time of the Business Combination, the financial statements for the Predecessor period and for the Successor period are presented on different bases. When information is noted as being “pro forma” in this press release, it means that the financial statements were adjusted to remove the effects of purchase accounting adjustments related to the Business Combination. The historical financial information of Thunder Bridge prior to the Business Combination has not been reflected in the Predecessor period financial statements.

Impact of Adoption of Topic 606

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”) and related cost capitalization guidance, using the modified retrospective transition method. As such, the Company is not required to restate comparative financial information prior to the adoption of ASC 606 and, therefore, such information for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 continues to be reported under FASB ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition (“ASC 605”). The adoption of ASC 606 did not impact the Company’s financial position, and only resulted in presentation changes in our statements of income, with revenues and expenses presented net of interchange, network and other fees. For the three months ended December 31, 2019, the adoption of ASC 606 reduced both revenue and operating expenses by $15.6 million and had no impact on operating income. The adoption of ASC 606 did not have any impact on net income or net income per share (basic and diluted) for the three months ended December 31, 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2019, the adoption of ASC 606 reduced both revenue and operating expenses by $61.2 million and had no impact on operating income. The adoption of ASC 606 did not have any impact on net income for the year ended December 31, 2019. A comparison of the current presentation under ASC 606 to the prior presentation under ASC 605 is provided below for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2019:

Subsequent Events

On February 10, 2020, REPAY announced the acquisition of Ventanex for up to $50 million, which includes up to a $14 million performance-based earnout. The closing of the acquisition was financed with a combination of cash on hand and new borrowings under REPAY’s existing credit facility. As part of the financing for the transaction, REPAY entered into an agreement with Truist Bank (formerly SunTrust Bank) and other members of its existing bank group to amend and upsize its previous $230 million credit facility to $345 million to provide additional capacity for growth.

On February 21, 2020, the Company entered into a swap transaction with Regions Bank. On a quarterly basis, commencing on March 31, 2020 up to and including the termination date of February 10, 2025, the Company will make fixed payments on the beginning notional amount of $30 million. On a quarterly basis, commencing on February 21, 2020 up to and including the termination date of February 10, 2025, the counterparty will make floating rate payments based on the 3 month LIBOR on the beginning notional amount of $30 million.

2020 Outlook

REPAY expects the below financial results for full year 2020, which reflects expected contributions from Ventanex.

Full Year 2020 Outlook

Card Payment Volume

$15.5 – 16.0 billion

Total Revenue

$155.0 – 165.0 million

Gross Profit

$115.0 – 120.0 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$66.0 – 70.0 million

Revenue information for the full year 2020 outlook is presented in accordance with ASC 606. In addition, REPAY does not provide quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking, non-GAAP financial measures such as forecasted 2020 Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because it is difficult to reliably predict or estimate the relevant components without unreasonable effort due to future uncertainties that may potentially have significant impact on such calculations, and providing them may imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or potentially misleading.

A replay will be available one hour after the call and can be accessed by dialing 844-512-2921 or (412) 317-6671 for international callers; the conference ID is 13699265. The call will be webcast live from REPAY’s investor relations website and the replay will be available at https://investors.repay.com/investor-relations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This communication includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that REPAY’s management uses to evaluate its operating business, measure its performance and make strategic decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income prior to interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted to add back certain non-cash and non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, share-based compensation charges, transaction expenses, management fees, legacy commission related charges, employee recruiting costs, loss on disposition of property and equipment, other taxes, strategic initiative related costs and other non-recurring charges. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income prior to amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, as adjusted to add back certain non-cash and non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction expenses, share-based compensation expense, management fees, legacy commission related charges, employee recruiting costs, loss on disposition of property and equipment, strategic initiative related costs and other non-recurring charges. Adjusted Net Income is adjusted to exclude amortization of all acquisition-related intangibles as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible amortization supplements GAAP financial measures because it allows for greater comparability of operating performance. Although we exclude amortization from acquisition-related intangibles from our non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangibles were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Adjusted Net Income per share is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding (on as-converted basis) for the three months ended December 31, 2019, and for the Successor period from July 11, 2019 to December 31, 2019 (excluding certain shares that were subject to forfeiture). Organic gross profit growth is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the year-on-year gross profit growth that excludes gross profit attributed to acquisitions made in 2019. REPAY believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share and organic gross profit growth provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results in the same manner as management. However, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share and organic gross profit growth are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating profit, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Using these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze REPAY’s business has material limitations because the calculations are based on the subjective determination of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find significant. In addition, although other companies in REPAY’s industry may report measures titled Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share, organic gross profit growth or similar measures, such non-GAAP financial measures may be calculated differently from how REPAY calculates its non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their overall usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share and organic gross profit growth alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and REPAY’s other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. You should be aware of additional limitations with respect to Adjusted Net Income per share because the GAAP presentation of net loss per share is only reflected for the Successor period.

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future financial and operating results, REPAY’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions with respect to future operations, products and services; and other statements identified by words such as “guidance,” “will likely result,” “are expected to,” “will continue,” “is anticipated,” “estimated,” “believe,” “intend,” “plan,” “projection,” “outlook” or words of similar meaning. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, REPAY’s full year 2020 outlook and statements regarding REPAY’s market and growth opportunities.

In addition to factors previously disclosed in prior reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere in this communication, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results and the timing of events to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements: a delay or failure to integrate and realize the benefits of the TriSource acquisition and any difficulties associated with operating in the back-end processing markets in which REPAY does not have any experience; a delay or failure to integrate and realize the benefits of the APS Payments acquisition and any difficulties associated with marketing products and services in the B2B vertical market in which REPAY does not have any experience; a delay or failure to integrate and realize the benefits of the Ventanex acquisition and any difficulties associated with marketing products and services in the mortgage or B2B healthcare vertical market in which REPAY does not have any experience; changes in the payment processing market in which REPAY competes, including with respect to its competitive landscape, technology evolution or regulatory changes; changes in the vertical markets that REPAY targets; risks relating to REPAY’s relationships within the payment ecosystem; risk that REPAY may not be able to execute its growth strategies, including identifying and executing acquisitions; risks relating to data security; exposure to economic conditions and political risk affecting the consumer loan market and consumer and commercial spending; the impacts of the recent COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak (which are highly uncertain and cannot be reasonably estimated or predicted at this time); changes in accounting policies applicable to REPAY; and the risk that REPAY may not be able to develop and maintain effective internal controls.

Actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially, and potentially adversely, from any projections and forward-looking statements and the assumptions on which those forward-looking statements are based. There can be no assurance that the data contained herein is reflective of future performance to any degree. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a predictor of future performance.

Key Operating and Non-GAAP Financial Data

We believe that adjusting the key operating and non-GAAP measures for comparability between the Predecessor, Successor and Pro Forma periods is useful to the user of our financial statements.

The unaudited non-GAAP pro forma results of operations data for the three month period and year ended December 31, 2019 included in the discussion below are based on our historical financial statements, adjusted to remove the effects of purchase accounting adjustments related to the Business Combination. The pro forma results included herein have not been prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X.

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare fourth quarter and 2019 full year results to fourth quarter and 2018 full year results from continuing operations for the period ended December 31, respectively.

The following tables and related notes reconcile these Non-GAAP measures and the Pro Forma Measures to GAAP information for the three month period and year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018:

(1) Gross profit for 2019 represents total revenue, including the impact of the adoption of ASC 606, less other costs of services. Gross profit for 2018 represents total revenue, without the impact of the adoption of ASC 606, less interchange, network, other fees and other cost of services in 2018. The adoption of ASC 606 had no impact on gross profit.

(2) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income adjusted for interest expense, depreciation and amortization and certain other non-cash charges and non-recurring items. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above and the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to its most comparable GAAP measure below.

  1. Adjusted Net Income is adjusted to exclude amortization of all acquisition-related intangibles as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions (see corresponding adjustments in the reconciliation of net income to Adjusted Net Income presented above). Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible amortization supplements GAAP financial measures because it allows for greater comparability of operating performance. Although REPAY excludes amortization from acquisition-related intangibles from our non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangibles were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangibles that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangibles have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangibles.

(n) Represents the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding (on as-converted basis) for the three months ended December 31, 2019, and for the Successor period from July 11, 2019 to December 31, 2019 (excluding certain shares that were subject to forfeiture).

REPAY Announces the Acquisition of Ventanex

Ventanex

Upsizes Existing Credit Facility to $345 million

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 10, 2020– Repay Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: RPAY) (“REPAY”), a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, today announced the acquisition of Ventanex for up to $50 million, of which $36 million was paid at closing. The remaining $14 million may become payable upon the achievement of performance growth targets. The closing of the acquisition was financed with a combination of cash on hand and new borrowings under REPAY’s existing credit facility. As part of the financing for the transaction, REPAY has entered into an agreement with Truist Bank (formerly SunTrust Bank) and other members of its existing bank group to amend and upsize its existing credit facility by $115 million to provide additional capacity for growth.

Ventanex, founded in 2012 and headquartered in Dallas, TX, is an integrated payments solutions provider to the consumer finance and B2B healthcare verticals. Ventanex’s technology platform offers inbound and outbound omnichannel payment solutions and complex rules-based processing. Ventanex enables its clients to send and receive funds across numerous payment types, including but not limited to, ACH, debit card, credit card, virtual card, and check. The Ventanex solution is deeply integrated into its clients’ workflow via connectivity with their primary enterprise software solutions.

“The acquisition of Ventanex advances REPAY’s overarching strategy of being the preferred payments provider to high-growth verticals where our technology and payment capabilities serve as differentiators. The consumer finance and B2B healthcare markets will provide significant growth opportunities, as these verticals are in the early stages of a secular shift from legacy payment mediums to the more innovative and varied payment solutions in which we specialize. Additionally, Ventanex’s consumer finance and B2B focus aligns well with our existing client base, allowing us to provide both customer sets with more robust offerings,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY. “We are eager to welcome the Ventanex team into the REPAY family and look forward to working together to grow our consumer finance and B2B healthcare businesses.”

“We are thrilled to partner with REPAY to accelerate our growth in the consumer finance and B2B healthcare verticals, as both markets are large and present numerous value creation opportunities. We expect the combination of our product suite and REPAY’s distribution capabilities to drive meaningful growth in our core markets,” said Chris Sanders, CEO of Ventanex.

Transaction Details

  • REPAY acquired Ventanex for $50 million
    • $36 million was paid at closing
    • Up to $14 million may become payable through two separate earnouts, which are dependent upon Ventanex’s performance for the 12-month periods ending December 31, 2020 and 2021
  • The acquisition was financed with a combination of cash on hand and new borrowings under REPAY’s existing credit facility
  • As part of the financing for the transaction, REPAY has entered into an agreement with Truist Bank and other members of its existing bank group to amend and upsize its current $230 million credit facility to $345 million
    • Approximately $255 million was outstanding under the credit facility at the closing of the Ventanex transaction
  • Combined net leverage is expected to approximate 3.7x on a post-transaction basis
  • In 2019, Ventanex is expected to generate approximate revenue, gross profit, and adjusted EBITDA of $12.00 million, $6.50 million, and $4.25 million, respectively

Strategic Rationale

  • New, Attractive, High-growth Markets
    • The consumer finance and B2B healthcare markets have large addressable markets and provide numerous technology-centered value creation opportunities
    • Ventanex’s mortgage loan servicer focus materially expands REPAY’s addressable market by approximately $500 billion. Ventanex’s solution is integrated with the largest mortgage loan servicing platforms, including Black Knight and Fiserv
    • Ventanex’s foothold in the B2B healthcare vertical will allow REPAY to pursue the high-growth, $170 billion market for outbound healthcare payments
  • Cross Sell Opportunities
    • Similar client bases largely comprised of companies that service loans
    • Ventanex’s products are highly complementary to those of REPAY; therefore, bi-directional cross sell opportunities exist
  • Growth Acceleration
    • REPAY believes that its distribution, technology, and processing capabilities will accelerate new client wins
    • Additionally, REPAY expects continued professionalization and infrastructure investments to enable Ventanex to scale and move up-market on the customer dimension

REPAY Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Increases Outlook for Full Year 2019

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 14, 2019– Repay Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: RPAY) (“REPAY” or the “Company”), a leading provider of vertically-integrated payment solutions, today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

“We are proud of our third quarter results, which included positive contributions from our TriSource acquisition, resulting in year-over-year growth in card payment volume and gross profit of 40% and 39%, respectively,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY. “We are also thrilled to have recently entered the B2B payments space with the previously-announced acquisition of APS Payments.”

See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to their most comparable GAAP measure provided below for additional information.

____________________________

1 Please refer to “Basis of Presentation” below for an explanation of the presentation of this information.

Business Combination

The Company was formed upon closing of the merger (the “Business Combination”) of Hawk Parent Holdings LLC (together with Repay Holdings, LLC and its other subsidiaries, “Hawk Parent”) with a subsidiary of Thunder Bridge Acquisition, Ltd, (“Thunder Bridge”), a special purpose acquisition company, on July 11, 2019 (the “Closing Date”). On the Closing Date, Thunder Bridge changed its name to Repay Holdings Corporation.

Basis of Presentation

As a result of the Business Combination, the Company was identified as the acquirer for accounting purposes, and Hawk Parent, which owned the business conducted prior to the closing of the Business Combination, is the acquiree and accounting “Predecessor.” The Company is the “Successor” for periods after the Closing Date, which includes consolidation of the Hawk Parent business subsequent to the Closing Date. The Company’s financial statement presentation reflects the Hawk Parent business as the “Predecessor” for periods through the Closing Date. Where we discuss results for any period ended September 30, 2019, we are referring to the combined results of the Predecessor for the periods from either January 1, 2019 or July 1, 2019 through July 10, 2019 and the Successor for the period from the Closing Date through September 30, 2019. The combined basis of presentation reflects a simple arithmetic combination of the Predecessor and Successor periods. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting, and the Successor financial statements reflect a new basis of accounting that is based on the fair value of net assets acquired. As a result of the application of the acquisition method of accounting as of the effective time of the Business Combination, the financial statements for the Predecessor period and for the Successor period are presented on different bases. When information is noted as being “pro forma” in this press release, it means that the financial statements were adjusted to remove the effects of purchase accounting adjustments related to the Business Combination. The historical financial information of Thunder Bridge prior to the Business Combination has not been reflected in the Predecessor period financial statements.

Subsequent Events

On October 1, 2019, as required under the terms of the Business Combination, REPAY issued 3,750,000 additional Class A units in Hawk Parent as a result of the volume-weighted average trading price of REPAY’s Class A common stock exceeding $12.50 for twenty out of thirty consecutive trading days during the first twelve months following the closing of the Business Combination. Beginning on the six-month anniversary of the Business Combination, these Class A units in Hawk Parent may be exchanged for REPAY’s Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis. Also, as a result of the achievement of similar share price triggers, 1,482,500 shares of REPAY’s Class A common stock held by Thunder Bridge Acquisition, LLC were released from escrow on October 2, 2019 and are no longer subject to forfeiture.

On October 1, 2019, in connection with the post-closing adjustment mechanism for the Business Combination, 39,674 Class A units in Hawk Parent, the parent of the Predecessor, were cancelled and 20,326 Class A units in Hawk Parent were released from escrow and are no longer subject to forfeiture.

On October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a swap transaction with Regions Bank. On a quarterly basis, commencing on December 31, 2019 up to and including the termination date of July 11, 2024, the Company will make fixed payments on a beginning notional amount of $140,000,000. On a quarterly basis, commencing on December 31, 2019 up to and including the termination date of July 11, 2024, the counterparty will make floating rate payments based on the 3 month LIBOR on the beginning notional amount of $140,000,000.

On October 14, 2019, REPAY announced the acquisition of APS Payments for up to $60 million, which includes a $30 million performance-based earnout. The closing of the acquisition was financed with a combination of cash on hand and proceeds from borrowings under REPAY’s existing credit facility.

2019 Outlook

The addition of APS Payments is expected to contribute the following to the remainder of 2019:

  • $500 million in card payment volume
  • $3.5 million in total revenue
  • $2.8 million in gross profit
  • $1.5 million in Adjusted EBITDA

REPAY now expects the below financial results for full year 2019, which reflects expected contributions from APS Payments. The difference between the Previous Guidance and the Updated Guidance is solely related to the contributions from APS.

Full Year 2019 Outlook

Previous Guidance

Updated Guidance

Card Payment Volume

$9.6 – 9.75 billion

$10.1 – 10.25 billion

Total Revenue

$157.0 – 162.0 million

$160.5 – 165.5 million

Gross Profit

$74.0 – 76.0 million

$76.8 – 78.8 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$45.3 – 46.8 million

$46.8 – 48.3 million

Revenue information for the full year 2019 outlook is presented in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 605. REPAY expects to adopt a new standard, ASC 606, when financial results for the full year ended December 31, 2019 are reported, and is continuing to evaluate the impact of that standard. In addition, REPAY does not provide quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking, non-GAAP financial measures such as forecasted 2019 Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because it is difficult to reliably predict or estimate the relevant components without unreasonable effort due to future uncertainties that may potentially have significant impact on such calculations, and providing them may imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or potentially misleading.

Conference Call

REPAY will host a conference call to discuss third quarter 2019 financial results today at 5:00 pm ET. Hosting the call will be John Morris, CEO, and Tim Murphy, CFO. The conference call can be accessed live over the phone by dialing (877) 407-3982, or for international callers (201) 493-6780. A replay will be available one hour after the call and can be accessed by dialing 844-512-2921 or (412) 317-6671 for international callers; the conference ID is 13695820. The call will be webcast live from REPAY’s investor relations website and the replay will be available at https://investors.repay.com/investor-relations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This communication includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that REPAY’s management uses to evaluate its operating business, measure its performance and make strategic decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income prior to interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted to add back certain non-cash and non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, share-based compensation charges, transaction expenses, management fees, legacy commission related charges, employee recruiting costs, loss on disposition of property and equipment, other taxes, strategic initiative related costs and other non-recurring charges. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income prior to amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, as adjusted to add back certain non-cash and non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction expenses, share-based compensation expense, management fees, legacy commission related charges, employee recruiting costs, loss on disposition of property and equipment, strategic initiative related costs and other non-recurring charges. Adjusted Net Income is adjusted to exclude amortization of all acquisition-related intangibles as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible amortization supplements GAAP financial measures because it allows for greater comparability of operating performance. Although we exclude amortization from acquisition-related intangibles from our non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangibles were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Adjusted Net Income per share is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Adjusted Net Income divided by the number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding (on as-converted basis) on September 30, 2019 (excluding certain shares that were subject to forfeiture on September 30, 2019). REPAY believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results in the same manner as management. However, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating profit, or any other operating performance measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Using these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze REPAY’s business has material limitations because the calculations are based on the subjective determination of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find significant. In addition, although other companies in REPAY’s industry may report measures titled Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share or similar measures, such non-GAAP financial measures may be calculated differently from how REPAY calculates its non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their overall usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and REPAY’s other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. You should be aware of additional limitations with respect to Adjusted Net Income per share because the GAAP presentation of net loss per share is only reflected for the Successor period.

Forward-Looking Statements

This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about future financial and operating results, REPAY’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions with respect to future operations, products and services; and other statements identified by words such as “guidance,” “will likely result,” “are expected to,” “will continue,” “is anticipated,” “estimated,” “believe,” “intend,” “plan,” “projection,” “outlook” or words of similar meaning. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, REPAY’s estimated future results, APS’s contributions, and the updated full year 2019 outlook. Such forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of REPAY’s management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond our control. Actual results and the timing of events may differ materially from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

In addition to factors previously disclosed in prior reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere in this communication, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results and the timing of events to differ materially from the anticipated results or other expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements: a delay or failure to realize the expected benefits from the Thunder Bridge business combination; a delay or failure to integrate and realize the benefits of the TriSource acquisition and any difficulties associated with operating in the back-end processing markets in which REPAY does not have any experience; a delay or failure to integrate and realize the benefits of the APS Payments acquisition and any difficulties associated with marketing products and services in the B2B vertical market in which REPAY does not have any experience; changes in the payment processing market in which REPAY competes, including with respect to its competitive landscape, technology evolution or regulatory changes; changes in the vertical markets that REPAY targets; risks relating to REPAY’s relationships within the payment ecosystem; risk that REPAY may not be able to execute its growth strategies, including identifying and executing acquisitions; risks relating to data security; changes in accounting policies applicable to REPAY; and the risk that REPAY may not be able to develop and maintain effective internal controls.

Actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially, and potentially adversely, from any projections and forward-looking statements and the assumptions on which those forward-looking statements are based. There can be no assurance that the data contained herein is reflective of future performance to any degree. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a predictor of future performance as projected financial information and other information are based on estimates and assumptions that are inherently subject to various significant risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond REPAY’s control. All information set forth herein speaks only as of the date hereof in the case of information about REPAY or the date of such information in the case of information from persons other than REPAY, and REPAY disclaims any intention or obligation to update any forward looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this communication. Forecasts and estimates regarding REPAY’s industry and end markets are based on sources it believes to be reliable, however there can be no assurance these forecasts and estimates will prove accurate in whole or in part. Annualized, pro forma, projected and estimated numbers are used for illustrative purpose only, are not forecasts and may not reflect actual results.

Key Operating and Non-GAAP Financial Data

We believe that adjusting the key operating and non-GAAP measures for comparability between the Predecessor, Successor and Pro Forma periods is useful to the user of our financial statements.

The unaudited non-GAAP pro forma results of operations data for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2019 included in the discussion below are based on our historical financial statements, adjusted to remove the effects of purchase accounting adjustments related to the Business Combination. The pro forma results included herein have not been prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X.

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare pro forma third quarter and nine-month 2019 results to third quarter and nine-month 2018 results from continuing operations for the period ended September 30, respectively.

The following tables and related notes reconcile these Non-GAAP measures and the Pro Forma Measures to GAAP information for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2019 and 2018:

  1. Adjusted Net Income is adjusted to exclude amortization of all acquisition-related intangibles as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions (see corresponding adjustments in the reconciliation of net income to Adjusted Net Income presented above). Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible amortization supplements GAAP financial measures because it allows for greater comparability of operating performance. Although REPAY excludes amortization from acquisition-related intangibles from our non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangibles were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangibles that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangibles have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangibles.

(n) Represents the total number of outstanding shares of Class A common stock on September 30, 2019 and not otherwise subject to vesting or forfeiture restrictions on such date, together with the total number of outstanding shares of Class A common issuable upon exchange of the total number of outstanding Class A units in Hawk Parent on September 30, 2019 (without regard to the restriction on exchanges prior to the six-month anniversary of the Business Combination). This amount does not take into the issuances, releases and cancellations of shares and units described in “Subsequent Events” above.

(o) Adjustment for incremental depreciation and amortization recorded due to fair-value adjustments under ASC 805 in the Successor Period.
