REPAY Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

ATLANTA--()--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, 2021.

“We have continued to experience incredible growth in the third quarter, with card payment volume and gross profit up 48% and 69%, respectively,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY. “We've made significant strides in driving organic growth and profitability, while broadening our addressable market and solutions. In our fast growing B2B business we have over 80 software integrations, and on the AP side we've grown our supplier network to over 105,000. We’ve also added many key partnerships over the last few months that should help to further accelerate our B2B business. Additionally, we remain excited about our diversified platform, and see strength across all of our other businesses. We look forward to continuing this solid momentum as we move into 2022,” said John Morris, CEO of REPAY.

Three Months Ended September 30, 2021 Highlights

  • Card payment volume was $5.6 billion, an increase of 48% over the third quarter of 2020
  • Total revenue was $61.1 million, a 62% increase over the third quarter of 2020
  • Gross profit was $45.8 million, an increase of 69% over the third quarter of 2020
  • Net loss was ($7.1) million, as compared to a net loss of ($12.1) million in the third quarter of 2020
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $27.0 million, an increase of 73% over the third quarter of 2020
  • Adjusted Net Income was $19.0 million, an increase of 77% over the third quarter of 2020
  • Adjusted Net Income per share was $0.21

Gross profit represents total revenue less cost of services. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per share are non-GAAP financial measures. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to their most comparable GAAP measures provided below for additional information.

2021 Outlook Update

REPAY now expects the following financial results for full year 2021 and replaces previously provided guidance.

 

Full Year 2021 Outlook

 

Updated Guidance

Card Payment Volume

$20.3 - 20.8 billion

Total Revenue

$216 - 222 million

Gross Profit

$161 - 166 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$93 - 96 million

This range assumes no further unforeseen COVID-related impacts, which could create substantial economic duress in the remainder of 2021. REPAY does not provide quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking, non-GAAP financial measures, such as forecasted 2021 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 warrant liabilities, 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, commission restructuring related charges, employee recruiting costs, other taxes, 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 warrant liabilities, 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, commission restructuring related charges, employee recruiting costs, 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, 2021 and 2020 (excluding shares subject to forfeiture). 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.

(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.

(p) Represents non-cash deferred debt issuance costs.

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

(r) Represents the weighted average number of shares of Class A common stock outstanding (on an as-converted basis) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, and the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
