Revenue development in the quarter was driven by new all-time quarterly records in charge card dollars and transactions processed, strong year-over-year development in prepaid credit card volumes and transactions, in addition to a double-digit rise in total transaction/pieces processed at Output Solutions. While up sequentially, ACH electronic check transactions and dollars processed within the quarter were lower from last year’s record volumes, while came back check transactions within the quarter elevated 39%. Results once more demonstrate the effectiveness of our diversification strategy once we achieved growth despite weakness in our finish markets, cryptocurrency.”
“Based on our strong year up to now performance, our start up business pipeline, and also the prepaid credit card spoilage expected to be earned within the third and 4th quarters, offset by an anticipated 25 – 30% decrease in third quarter ACH transactions than the same period in 2021, caused by losing the Voyager ACH business, we’re revising our expectations for twelve month 2022 revenue growth to 12% – 18%, conditioned around the ongoing enthusiasm within the fintech lending industry and favorable economic conditions.

For that quarter, ACH was in competition with an outsized last year quarter when cryptocurrency activity what food was in its peak. Prepaid was our fastest growing business line for the quarter and first half of the season on the percentage basis. We predict our strong relationships, growing quantity of programs offered and cards in circulation to guide to ongoing growth within the other half of the season, in addition to starting to generate revenue from card spoilage. Output Solutions is constantly on the outshine management’s expectations. E-commerce is benefitting in the synergies generated inside the various Usio business lines, and it is set to possess another strong other half.

The PayFac business has our most powerful start up business pipelines and can dramatically change its growth trajectory.”
