Meridian Growth Fund made the following comment about Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:EEFT) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:EEFT) is an industry leader in providing secure electronic financial solutions on a global basis. The company operates one of the largest independent ATM networks in Europe, has the largest payment network for prepaid mobile top-up and other digital content, and is the second largest global money transfer company. Despite posting solid double-digit earnings growth, the company lowered its full-year outlook to the lower end of its previous guidance range which included a softer than anticipated third quarter outlook. The weakness was driven by slower growth in its most profitable EFT business, which relies heavily on cash-based spending activities related to travel and leisure. The company cited the economic impact from the war in Ukraine, rising inflation, and lower overall consumer spending. While current softness pressured the stock, we believe Euronet’s overall business results remain solid, and valuations are attractive at current levels. We added to our position during the quarter on share price weakness."
