Paysafe reports net loss of $631.5 million for Q2 2022
Specialized payments platform Paysafe Limited (NYSE:PSFE) today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2022.
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $378.9 million, a decrease of 1%, compared to $384.3 million in the prior year period. Excluding a $18.3 million unfavorable impact from changes in foreign exchange rates, revenue increased 3% compared to the prior year period. Strong growth from US Acquiring, which increased 14%, was offset by declines in Digital Commerce.
Net loss attributable to the company for the second quarter was $631.5 million, compared to net income of $6.6 million in the prior year period, largely reflecting an impairment charge.
Due to a sustained decline in Paysafe’s market capitalization, as well as current market and macroeconomic conditions, Paysafe recognized a $676.5 million impairment of goodwill during the second quarter. Paysafe says that the non-cash impairment charge will not have any impact on the Company’s compliance with its debt covenants, cash flows or liquidity.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $103.0 million, a decrease of 13%, compared to $118.8 million in the prior year period. Excluding a $5.1 million unfavorable impact from changes in foreign exchange rates, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 9% compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 27.2%, compared to 30.9% in the prior year period, primarily reflecting business mix.
Adjusted net income for the second quarter was $37.5 million, compared to adjusted net income of $66.4 million in the prior year period. The change in adjusted net income was largely attributable to the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA as well as an increase in depreciation and amortization expense, excluding the amortization of acquired intangibles, and higher interest expense, excluding the impact of the acceleration of deferred debt financing expense.
Second quarter net cash inflow from operating activities was $875.6 million, compared to $7.7 million net outflow in the prior year period. Free cash flow was $39.7 million, compared to $54.6 million in the prior year period.
Bruce Lowthers, CEO of Paysafe, commented:
“Through the first half of the year, Paysafe has delivered financial results in line with our overall expectations, marked by double-digit growth in the US SMB market. I remain very excited to be at the helm of Paysafe as we drive transformational change to unlock our full growth potential with a laser focus on accelerating sales, innovative product delivery and operating at speed.
While strong execution has enabled us to absorb headwinds from foreign exchange rates and a soft European gambling market, at this time we believe it is prudent to adjust our outlook to reflect the current macroeconomic environment.”
