Usio Reports Strong Second Quarter Electronic Payments Transaction and Processing Volume

Total Dollars processed in the second quarter of 2022 were $2.4 billion, once again increasing on a sequential basis

Both dollars and transactions processed in the Company’s Card Segment – including PayFac were all-time quarterly records

SAN ANTONIO, Texas--()--Usio, Inc. (Nasdaq: USIO), a cloud-based, integrated FinTech electronic payment solutions provider, today announced that it processed a total of $2.4 billion dollars in the second quarter of 2022, up 2% sequentially from the first quarter of the year. Both total card dollars and transactions processed in the Company’s Card segment, including PayFac, were all time quarterly records.

Louis Hoch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Usio, said, “We are pleased to have generated sequential growth in total dollars processed in the second quarter and to report record processing performance in our Card segment. Prepaid also continued its strong growth, with transactions processed in the quarter nearly doubling from a year ago. And ACH generated sequential growth, although transaction volume and electronic check dollars processed were down from last year’s cryptocurrency related record performance. Since consumer lending has increased due to a weakened economy, ACH is also showing growth in its well-priced returned check transactions processed services. Output Solutions continues to outperform our internal revenue estimates and is positioned to accelerate growth through a rich pipeline of prospects from our cross-selling activities within our payments client base.”

“Our diversified channel strategy continues to enable us to generate strong growth. In addition, we have a strong new sales pipeline, primarily in our PayFac business, but also with our non-bank lenders, and have over $15 million of potential card spoilage that we expect to start recognizing in September. Moreover, both card and ACH volumes set records in the final month of the quarter, June 2022, with monthly card volumes setting an all-time high and ACH volumes nearly matching our all-time high for a month. Consequently, we are maintaining our outlook of 16% - 20% revenue growth for the year, conditioned on favorable economic conditions.”
