Third Quarter 2022 Highlighted by Strong Processing Volume Growth,
Company Rebranding and Launch of coyni Platform

SAN DIEGO, CA, Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RYVYL Inc. (NASDAQ: RVYL) (“RYVYL” or the “Company”), a company that leverages the security of the blockchain and USD-pegged stablecoin technology with near-real-time attestation to conduct payment transaction, has provided its financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2022.

Management Commentary by CEO Fredi Nisan:

Third Quarter 2022 highlights:

  • Achieved record quarterly processing volume of approximately $1.3 billion, about 35% ahead of internal projections, a 20% increase when compared to Q2 processing volume of approximately $1 billion and nearly double Q3 2021.
  • Grew third quarter revenue of $10.6 million versus $8.0 million in the same quarter year-ago, a 32% increase.
  • Launched the coyni v2 platform, featuring our U.S. dollar pegged stablecoin on a one-to-one ratio with near real-time attestation and now available in Google Play and the Apple App store.
  • Following shareholder approval, renamed the Company as RYVYL Inc, to showcase the evolving technological advancements and development of our offerings and services.
  • Expanded our services in American Samoa to over 240 merchants, which represents about a 50% share of the merchant target market and processed nearly $17 million for the businesses and residents on the island after starting at $0 in Q2. Territorial Bank of American Samoa (TBAS) is an ideal model market for the coyni platform to implement the same offering to other similar closed-loop geographies.
  • Our FX and international payments business line, including Transact Europe, reported over $500 million in business volume, of which $480 million is attributable to FX conversion and international payment transactions.
  • Strengthened our executive management team with the appointment of Drew Byelick as Chief Financial Officer. Drew brings tremendous depth and breadth of functional and industry experiences in startup, middle market, and multisite global manufacturing, service, software, technology, and distribution companies.
  • Successfully renegotiated the terms of our $100 million convertible note financing, extending maturity by one year while reducing the cash interest expense burden.

Summary

Our Company made several crucial strides forward towards our objective of becoming a leading fintech company, during the third quarter of 2022. This was highlighted by another quarterly record for our processing volume of approximately $1.3 billion during the quarter.

Given the remarkable growth we’ve seen in the past two years with the continued advancement of our technology and payment solutions, the forming of new partnerships, expanding geographically, and the hiring of key personnel, the time was right for the evolution of our brand and identity. To that end, at our recent annual general meeting, we received resounding shareholder approval to rename the company RYVYL, Inc. The new brand more effectively communicates our leading-edge and expanded product and service offering towards the goal of becoming a leader in the global fintech space.

We continued to see evidence of the power of our technology’s capabilities with the rapid adoption of our payment solutions in American Samoa, where approximately 50% of the market is now using our service after only one quarter. Our international business saw tremendous growth in processing during the quarter as the successful integration of Transact Europe began to yield results from the ample opportunity we sought to capitalize on in Europe.

Finally, we completed the launch of the coyni platform, including our US dollar pegged stablecoin, which we believe will play a vital role in the next stage of growth for RYVYL. We believe our truly differentiated stablecoin, new brand identity, and increased international capabilities, positions us to continue to scale as we look to build relationships with well-established payment companies that benefit from our advanced infrastructure and technology.

Looking ahead, with about $3.1 billion in processing volume through the first nine months of 2022, we are confident in our outlook to finish the year with processing volume of over $4 billion and expect continued growth into 2023.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Summary

  • Net revenue increased by $3.3M, or 17%, to $22.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 from $19.2 million in the prior year’s same period. Net revenue increased by $2.6M, or 32%, to $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2022 from $8.0 million in the same quarter the prior year. The change in net revenue includes $2.9 million of penalties and fees charged to merchants in accordance with our standard service agreement for transaction fraud and minimum activity fees. Also contributing to the year over year growth were increased processing volume compared to the same three-month period in 2021 offset by lower commissions from a processing partner. 
  • Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, was $11.5 million, or 51.2% of total net revenue, compared to gross profit of $13.8 million, or 72.2% of total net revenue, in the prior year’s same period. Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $6.4 million, or 59.8% of total net revenue, compared to gross profit of $5.6 million, or 69.9% of total net revenue, in the same quarter a year ago. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to higher processing fees paid to gateways and commission payments to ISOs. 
  • Ordinary operating expenses were $21.9 million and $9.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, and 2021, respectively, an increase of $12.7 million. Ordinary operating expenses were $6.5 million and $3.9 million for Q3 2022 and 2021, respectively, an increase of $2.6 million. The increase of $12.7 million was due primarily to marketing expenses related to re-branding, software development, and payroll and payroll taxes offset by decreases in non-cash operating expenses.
  • Other expenses of $8.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 increased $4.0 million over the same period prior year. Interest expense related to the $100 million convertible note issued in November of 2021, amortization of the discount fees associated with the note, and derecognition expense on conversion of convertible debt were offset by the favorable changes in the fair value of derivative liability of $14.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and none in the previous year same quarter.
  • The Company sustained a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, of $26.1 million, or $0.59 cents per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $19.4 million or $0.49 cents per basic and diluted share, in the same period the prior year. The Company recorded a net loss in the third quarter of 2022 of $15.2 million, or $0.32 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, in the same quarter a year ago. The increase in net loss for the nine months and Q3 ended September 30, 2022 was primarily due to increases in research and development, interest and other expenses related to the $100 million note, general and administrative, payroll and payroll taxes and professional fees as we continue to add staff and infrastructure related to our growth offset by the favorable change in fair value of the derivative liability.
  • Cash position as of September 30, 2022 was cash and cash equivalents balance of $37.6 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was just short of break-even for the quarter at a loss of $0.1 million, a $4.8 million improvement from the last quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This earnings release discusses Adjusted Net Income which is not a financial measure as defined by GAAP. This financial measure is presented as a supplemental measure of operating performance because we believe it can aid in, and enhance, the understanding of our financial results. In addition, we use Adjusted Net Income as a measure internally for budgeting purposes.
                                                                
We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) before (1) interest expense (income), net, (2) income tax expense (benefit), (3) depreciation, (4) amortization of intangible assets, (5) stock-based compensation expense, plus (6) from time to time, certain other items which are specific transaction-related items. Other companies may define or calculate this measure differently, limiting the usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of this limitation, this non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as substitute for or superior to performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with the financial statement tables. See also Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) attributable to RYVYL, Inc., to Adjusted Net Income in the table below.*
