REPAY Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Q3 2022 Gross Profit Growth of 20% Year-over-Year with Continued Solid Margins

Reaffirms Full Year 2022 Guidance

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 9, 2022– 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 ended September 30, 2022.

 

“REPAY delivered strong results in the third quarter across both the top and bottom lines, with accelerated growth and expanding margins,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY. “We remain encouraged by our addressable market opportunity, as the B2B and Consumer payment verticals we target represent over $5 trillion of combined annual payment volume. We also remain very encouraged by the continued tailwinds in our business, including the ongoing secular trends away from cash and check towards digital, embedded payments. We believe those opportunities – along with our unique offering, technology platform, and our exceptional team – position us well for long term, sustainable growth.”

Third Quarter 2022 Business Highlights

The Company’s achievements in the quarter, including those highlighted below, reinforce management’s belief in the ability of the Company to drive durable and sustained growth across REPAY’s diversified business model.

  • 15% year-over-year organic gross profit growth1
  • B2B AP/AR volumes grew approximately 30% year-over-year and represented 20%+ of total volume in the third quarter
  • Added six new integrated software partners to bring the total to 236 ISVs as of the end of the third quarter
  • Expanded AP supplier network to 147,000, an increase of 40% year-over-year
  • Increased instant funding volume by 50% versus the same period last year

Organic gross profit growth is a non-GAAP financial measure.  See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure provided below for additional information.

2022 Outlook

REPAY reiterates its previously provided guidance for full year 2022, as shown below.

Full Year 2022 Outlook

Card Payment Volume

$25.0 – 26.3 billion

Revenue

$268 – 286 million

Gross Profit

$204 – 216 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$118 – 126 million

REPAY does not provide quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking, non-GAAP financial measures, such as forecasted 2022 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.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This report includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to evaluate the Company’s operating business, measure 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 charges deemed to not be part of normal operating expenses, non-cash charges and/or non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, loss on termination of interest rate hedge, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, non-cash change in fair value of assets and liabilities, share-based compensation charges, transaction expenses, restructuring and other strategic initiative 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 charges deemed to not be part of normal operating expenses, non-cash charges and/or non-recurring charges, such as loss on extinguishment of debt, loss on termination of interest rate hedge, non-cash change in fair value of contingent consideration, non-cash change in fair value of assets and liabilities, share-based compensation expense, transaction expenses, restructuring and other strategic initiative costs, other non-recurring charges, non-cash interest expense and net of tax effect associated with these adjustments. 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 REPAY excludes amortization from acquisition-related intangibles from its 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 an as-converted basis assuming conversion of the outstanding units exchangeable for shares of Class A common stock) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 (excluding shares subject to forfeiture). Organic gross profit growth is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents year-on-year gross profit growth that excludes incremental gross profit attributable to acquisitions made in the applicable prior period or any subsequent period. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net cash flow provided by operating activities less total capital expenditures, as adjusted to add back certain charges deemed to not be part of normal operating expenses and/or non-recurring charges, such as transaction expenses, restructuring and other strategic initiative costs and other non-recurring charges. REPAY believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per share, organic gross profit growth and Adjusted Free Cash Flow 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, organic gross profit growth and Adjusted Free Cash Flow are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, operating profit, net cash provided by operating activities, 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, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, 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, organic gross profit growth, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow alongside other financial performance measures, including net income, net cash provided by operating activities and REPAY’s other financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

(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 its 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.

(k)

Represents amortization of non-cash deferred debt issuance costs.

(l)

Represents pro forma income tax adjustment effect associated with items adjusted above.

(m)
