Q1 2022 Revenue Growth of 36% Driven by Growth in Higher Value Services
Raises Full Year 2022 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance

NEW YORK, May 12, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Payoneer Global Inc. ("Payoneer") (NASDAQ: PAYO), the commerce technology company powering payments and growth for the new global economy, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue increased 36% to $137.0 million, compared to $100.6 million in Q1 2021.

  • Transaction costs as a percentage of revenue decreased to 18.7% from 20.0% in Q1 2021.

  • Revenue less transaction costs increased 38% to $111.4 million from $80.5 million in Q1 2021.

  • Net income of $20.2 million compared to a net loss of $3.5 million in Q1 2021.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $10.4 million, compared to $7.8 million in Q1 2021.

  • Operational Metrics

    • Volume increased 10% to $14.6 billion, compared to $13.3 billion in Q1 2021.

    • Revenue as a percentage of volume ("Take Rate") increased to 94 basis points from 75 basis points in Q1 2021.

"Payoneer had a very strong first quarter, delivering revenues and adjusted EBITDA well ahead of our expectations, driven by increased adoption of higher value services and strong customer acquisition," said Scott Galit, Chief Executive Officer of Payoneer. "We plan to continue investing in our product and geographic expansion as we see tremendous untapped potential in developing markets globally. Our go-to-market investments are delivering strong results with new customer payback period globally of less than 12 months. B2B AP/AR continues to be a highlight as volume grew approximately 58%, with a two-year CAGR of over 90%. B2B AP/AR now represents 11% of our volume, up from 8% a year ago and we are still in the very early stages of penetrating this multi-trillion-dollar B2B AP/AR market. Given our strong market position, financial performance, brand, momentum and large market opportunities, I remain optimistic about our future."

First Quarter 2022 Business Highlights

The Company had several significant achievements in the quarter, reinforcing conviction in its investment strategy and ability to drive growth across geographies and higher value services.

  • Year over year revenue growth of over 50% across its portfolio of developing markets, which includes Latin America, Southeast Asia, Middle East North Africa and more;

  • Strong sales execution, with growing customer cohorts and new customer payback period of less than 12 months;

  • Exciting progress with its growing portfolio of higher value services;

    • B2B AP/AR volumes grew over 58% year over year

    • Payoneer Checkout momentum building as the Company ramps the onboarding of new customers

    • Commercial Card growth continued to be strong

  • Year over year partnership growth of over 100%, benefiting from continued momentum with existing partners and new partners including bKash, the largest mobile wallet in Bangladesh, and SHEIN, a global fashion and lifestyle e-tailer.

Updated 2022 Guidance

"We delivered strong first quarter results, which demonstrated the diversity of our revenue drivers, further validating our business model as we continue to invest for the long term," said Michael Levine, Chief Financial Officer of Payoneer. "We are making positive revisions to our guidance for 2022 based on strong year-to-date results, in the context of the evolving broader macro-economic and geopolitical environment."

"We continue to monitor the situation in Ukraine and the broader region. In our prior guidance, we assumed zero revenues from business in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus for the remainder of the year. However, based on subsequent actual results, while recognizing that the situation remains fluid, we now believe we can retain approximately 50% of our originally forecasted revenues collectively for those three countries for the rest of the year. The continued momentum in customer adoption of our higher value services, successful penetration into high-growth regions, and better-than-expected results in Ukraine, all support a higher likelihood of stronger results for the full year 2022," concluded Levine.

Updated 2022 guidance is as follows:

Revenue

$550 million - $560 million

Transaction costs

~21.5% of revenue

Adjusted EBITDA (1)

$(10) million to $(20) million

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes, and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of Payoneer, may be considered "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally relate to future events or Payoneer’s future financial or operating performance. For example, projections of future volume, revenue, transaction cost and adjusted EBITDA are forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "should," "expect," "intend," "will," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe," "predict," "potential" or "continue," or the negatives of these terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Payoneer and its management, as the case may be, are inherently uncertain. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: (1) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the business combination with FTAC Olympus Acquisition Corp., completed on June 25, 2021 (the "Reorganization"), which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of Payoneer to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers and suppliers and retain its management and key employees; (2) the outcome of any legal proceedings; (3) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (4) the possibility that Payoneer may be adversely affected by geopolitical and other economic, business and/or competitive factors; (5) Payoneer’s estimates of its financial performance; and (6) other risks and uncertainties set forth in Payoneer’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2021. Nothing in this press release should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of such forward-looking statements will be achieved. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. Payoneer does not undertake any duty to update these forward-looking statements.

Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the financial information and data contained in this press release, such as adjusted EBITDA, have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Payoneer uses these non-GAAP measures to compare Payoneer’s performance to that of prior periods for budgeting and planning purposes. Payoneer believes these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Payoneer’s results of operations. Payoneer's method of determining these non-GAAP measures may be different from other companies' methods and, therefore, may not be comparable to those used by other companies and Payoneer does not recommend the sole use of these non-GAAP measures to assess its financial performance. Payoneer management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in Payoneer’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. You should review Payoneer’s financial statements, which are included in Payoneer’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and its the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2022, and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Payoneer’s business.

Non-GAAP measures include the following item:

Adjusted EBITDA: We provide adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that represents our net income (loss) adjusted to exclude: M&A related income, stock-based compensation expenses, share in losses (gain) of associated company, gain from change in fair value of warrants, other financial expense (income), net, taxes on income, and depreciation and amortization.

Other companies may calculate the above measure differently, and therefore Payoneer’s measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

In addition, guidance for fiscal year, where adjusted, is provided on a non-GAAP basis, which Payoneer will continue to identify as it reports its future financial results. The Company cannot reconcile its expected adjusted EBITDA to expected net income under "2022 Guidance" without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, which unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company’s GAAP financial results.

In this earnings release, we reference volume, which is an operational metric. Volume refers to the total dollar value of transactions successfully completed or enabled by our platform, not including orchestration transactions. For a customer that both receives and later sends payments, we count the volume only once, with certain limited exceptions where both received and sent payment are counted.
