Company news

Investment summary

Paysafe’s H117 results show that organic constant currency growth is moderating to low double-digit rates, after exceptional growth in 2016. Profitability was strong during the period, helped by the strong growth and margins of the Asia Gateway business. The acquisition of MCPS (now complete) and the sale of Asia Gateway will both help reduce the group’s exposure to online gambling, and MCPS will strengthen the group’s position in bricks and mortar payment processing. For the purposes of the Takeover code, Edison Investment Research is deemed to be connected with Paysafe. Paysafe Group is a research client of Edison Investment Research Limited.

Industry outlook

The payment processing business should continue to benefit from the growth in customer transactions. Online retail sales are forecast to continue to show strong growth; for example, Forrester predicts US e-commerce revenue CAGR of 10% from 2014-19, as more retail sales shift from on-premise, mail order or telephone to online. The Digital Wallet business continues to benefit from growth in online gambling.
