Strong Revenue Growth of 42% Demonstrates Continued Momentum

Full-Year 2021 Revenue Guidance Raised

Expect Positive Adjusted EBITDA in 2021

NEW YORK, August 11, 2021--(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 second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights

Second Quarter 2021 versus Second Quarter 2020

  • Revenue increased 42% to $110.9 million as compared to $78.4 million in 2020.
    - Volume increased 29% to $13.6 billion as compared to $10.5 billion in 2020.
    - Revenue as a percentage of volume ("Take Rate") increased to 82 basis points from 75 basis points in 2020.

  • Transaction costs improved to 26% of revenue compared to 30% of revenue in 2020.

  • Net loss of $12.4 million compared to a net loss of $6.7 million in 2020.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million compared to $1.4 million in 2020.

"We delivered strong results in our first quarter as a public company. The momentum that we have been building over the past year continued as we delivered revenues well ahead of our internal targets. Given our strong performance we are raising the full-year revenue outlook and expect to generate positive adjusted EBITDA in 2021," said Scott Galit, Chief Executive Officer of Payoneer.

"We continue to execute on our long-term strategy to be the world’s go-to-partner for digital commerce everywhere. By driving growth as a trusted partner for marketplace ecosystems and investing to deliver even more value for more customers with B2B AP/AR, Merchant Services, Working Capital and Commercial Cards, we believe we are well-positioned to benefit for many years to come from the strong tailwinds provided by digitalization trends globally. The unique platform, team, network effects, compliance capabilities and global footprint we have built provides a strong underpinning for the future. We achieved a significant milestone in June by becoming a public company, and I’m excited for the whole Payoneer team, our customers, and investors to begin this next phase of our growth together," concluded Galit.

2021 Guidance

"We are raising guidance for full year 2021 revenues to grow approximately 28%-30% over 2020, up from our previous guidance of 25% growth. The increase in revenue guidance reflects higher take rate expectations that will more than offset lower than expected volume growth. We have also updated our transaction costs guidance to reflect improved performance. Finally, while we continue to invest aggressively in our platform and products for future growth, our better-than-expected first half allows us to forecast positive adjusted EBITDA for full year 2021," said Michael Levine, Chief Financial Officer of Payoneer.

2021 guidance as follows:

2021

Volume

$57 billion - $60 billion

Revenue

$442 million - $448 million

Transaction costs (1)

$112 million - $113 million

Adjusted EBITDA (2)

$1 million - $3 million

(1)

Based on using 25.3% as % of revenue.

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 outcome of any legal proceedings, including following the announcement of the business combination with FTAC Olympus Acquisition Corp. (the "Reorganization") and any definitive agreements with respect thereto; (2) the ongoing ability to meet the Nasdaq’s listing standards following the consummation of the Reorganization; (3) the risk that the Reorganization disrupts current plans and operations of Payoneer; (4) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of 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; (5) costs related to the Reorganization; (6) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (7) the possibility that Payoneer may be adversely affected by other economic, business and/or competitive factors; (8) Payoneer’s estimates of its financial performance; and (9) other risks and uncertainties set forth in Payoneer’s prospectus, and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 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 were included in the above prospectus and 10-Q, 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: Reorganization related expenses, M&A related expenses, 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 "2021 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.
