?Payoneer reported strong third quarter results, achieving 30% revenue growth year-over-year, highlighting the global breadth and diversity of our revenue drivers,? said Scott Galit, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Payoneer. ?Our performance reflects solid customer acquisition, adoption of High Value Services including B2B AP/AR and Commercial Mastercard, as well as accelerating interest income revenue from customer funds on our platform.?

?Payoneer is powering the cross-border economy and capturing market share in high growth emerging markets. For example, we saw over 50% year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter from customers in Latin America,? said John Caplan, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Payoneer. ?Our opportunity is significant and emerging market SMBs are increasingly using our platform, even in times of macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty. We have an abundance of opportunity, a diversified business model, and talented people, and we are confident in our ability to execute going forward.?

Third Quarter 2022 Business Highlights

The Company had several achievements in the quarter, reinforcing its conviction for its long-term strategy and growth investments across its diversified business model.

  • 39% year-over-year revenue growth in its portfolio of emerging markets, which includes Latin America, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Middle East, North Africa and more
  • B2B AP/AR volumes represented 12% of total volume in the third quarter, compared to 9% a year ago, and grew 39% year-over-year
  • Third quarter customer cohort 9% larger than the second quarter
  • Take rate of 105 basis points, up from 90 basis points a year ago
  • $5+ billion of customer funds as of September 30, 2022
  • Expanded executive leadership bench with the creation of a Chief Platform Officer role to lead technology, product, and High Value Service teams

Updated 2022 Guidance

?We are raising our guidance for 2022,? said Michael Levine, Chief Financial Officer. ?We are delivering strong results despite higher inflation, slowing economic growth, and the war in Ukraine. Payoneer is trusted by customers, it?s geographically and vertically diversified, and it benefits from rising interest rates. Our outlook on our business in Ukraine also remains consistent at 75% of our original budget.?

?We remain committed to adjusted EBITDA profitability as we continue to invest in our go-to-market efforts, platform development, and efficiency of our operations. We plan to make approximately $16 million of non-compensation discretionary investments in the fourth quarter to accelerate market penetration, further strengthen our organization, and focus our growth strategy.?

?We plan to moderately expand adjusted EBITDA margins for 2023 while funding our growth initiatives with a portion of our interest income revenue. We will provide full year 2023 guidance when we release fourth quarter and full year 2022 results in February.?

Updated 2022 guidance is as follows:

$605 million - $615 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,? ?plan,? ?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; (2) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (3) the possibility that Payoneer may be adversely affected by geopolitical and other economic, business and/or competitive factors; (4) Payoneer?s estimates of its financial performance; and (5) other risks and uncertainties set forth in Payoneer?s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2021 and future reports that Payoneer may file with the SEC from time to time. 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 subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 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: M&A related income, stock-based compensation expenses, reorganization related 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.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
