November 8, 2022

Digital revenue reached an all-time high of $95 million and digital transactions reached 45% of money transfer transactions at the end of the third quarter

Digital transactions increased 39% over the prior year

DALLAS, Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MoneyGram International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGI) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Business Highlights

"In the third quarter, we delivered 9% year-over-year revenue growth on a constant currency basis despite continued global macro-economic uncertainty. Growth has been primarily driven by continued demand for our leading mobile app as well as the successful digital partnerships we've built with fintechs around the world," said Alex Holmes, MoneyGram Chairman and CEO.

"Last week, we launched our latest digital offering – the ability for consumers to buy, sell and hold crypto through our app. And just three weeks ago, we announced our new title sponsorship of the Haas F1 Team, which will help amplify our new and innovative financial solutions to the world. As we approach the end of the year and look ahead to 2023, I couldn't be more excited about the momentum in the business."

Money transfer highlights for the quarter include the following:

•   

Total money transfer revenue was $299.1 million, an increase of $2.9 million, or 1% when compared to the same quarter in 2021. While revenues were up slightly, they were still negatively impacted as the dollar continued to strengthen against most major currencies. On a constant currency basis, money transfer revenue was up 7% compared to the prior year period.


Total money transfer transactions grew 6% year-over-year;


Total money transfer volume grew 11% on a constant currency basis;


Walmart revenue declined to approximately 7% of money transfer revenue. Without the impact of Walmart, the money transfer revenue grew 9% on a constant currency basis.

• 

MoneyGram Online ("MGO") continued its strong financial performance.


Total MGO money transfer revenue was $52.9 million, representing 13% year-over-year growth;


Year-over-year, MGO cross-border online revenue grew 17%, with transactions growing 15%;


Active cross-border customer growth continued its strong momentum increasing 11% year-over-year;


MGO transactions now account for 25% of total money transfer transactions.

Total digital, which includes MGO, digital partners and digital receives, continued its robust performance reporting year-over-year transaction growth of 39% in the third quarter


Digital revenue reached an all-time high of $95 million for the third quarter with an impressive 36% year-over-year revenue growth rate;


Customers using the mobile MGO App now account for 80% of total MGO transactions and the number of mobile customers grew 16% year-over-year.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results, Year-Over-Year

Total revenue was $330.8 million, an increase of $11.2 million or 3.5%. On a constant currency basis, total revenue increased by $29.4 million or 9%, year-over-year.


Total revenue increased 12% on a constant currency basis excluding Walmart money transfer revenue;


Total revenue growth included an increase in investment revenue of 516% or $9.8 million, driven by higher prevailing short-term U.S. interest rates in the quarter.

Gross profit was $156.2 million an increase of $7.1 million or 5% driven by the continued shift in mix to higher margin MGO business and higher investment income associated with the Financial Paper Products business

Total operating expenses were $133.1 million, an increase of $10.8 million or 9% driven by higher marketing expenses, coupled with increased currency conversion charges and FX losses driven by the strengthening dollar against major currencies;

Operating Income was $23.1 million, a decrease of $3.7 million driven by higher operating expenses described above and offset slightly by the higher margins from the MGO business and investment income;

Net Income was $4.2 million, compared to a $15.6 million Net Loss for the third quarter of 2021 driven by the early extinguishment of debt costs associated with the Company's debt refinancing last year;

Fully diluted earnings per share was $0.04;

Fully diluted adjusted earnings per share was $0.11;

Adjusted EBITDA decreased 3% on a reported basis to $54.8 million due to the dollar strengthening against major currencies, or an increase of 7% on a constant currency basis;


Excluding foreign exchange gains or losses Adjusted EBITDA increased by 11% year-over-year on a constant currency basis.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents were $126.7 million as of September 30, 2022, compared to $117.4 million as of June 30, 2022;

Third quarter interest expense was $12.2 million, a decrease of $0.8 million year-over-year or a decline of 6%;

Capital expenditures were $17.8 million, an increase of $7.6 million compared to the third quarter of 2021.

Recent Merger Updates

MoneyGram and Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC ("MDP") have recently made significant progress toward completing the closing conditions of the previously announced merger transaction. To date, money transmission regulators in 50 U.S. states and territories have provided their approval of or non-objection to, the transaction. Only three state approvals remain, and the parties are in active dialogue with each of these states.  In addition, the parties have obtained all but two approvals from its international money transmission regulators, and have received approval from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom and the National Bank of Belgium where MoneyGram holds its European license.

As previously disclosed, the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 has expired and MoneyGram stockholders have overwhelmingly approved the transaction with over 99% of shareholder votes cast in favor of the merger in May of this year. The parties have also received all required international antitrust and foreign direct investment approvals.

The parties continue to work toward the goal of closing the transactions in the fourth quarter of 2022, subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of the regulatory approvals described above.

Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements is contained from time to time in MoneyGram's SEC filings.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), this news release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, including agent signing bonus amortization), Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA adjusted for certain significant items), Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Free Cash Flow (Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest, cash taxes and cash payments for capital expenditures and agent signing bonuses), constant currency measures (which assume that amounts denominated in foreign currencies are translated to the U.S. dollar at rates consistent with those in the prior year), diluted adjusted income (loss) per share and adjusted net income. In addition, we present gross profit for our two reporting segments. The following tables include a full reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP financial measures. The equivalent GAAP financial measures for projected results are not provided, and projected results do not reflect the potential impact of certain non-GAAP adjustments, which include (but in future periods, may not be limited to) stock-based, contingent and incentive compensation costs; compliance enhancement program costs; direct monitor costs; legal and contingent matter costs; restructuring and reorganization costs; currency changes; and the tax effect of such items. We cannot reliably predict or estimate if and when these types of costs, adjustments or changes may occur or their impact to our financial statements. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the equivalent GAAP financial measures for projected results is not available.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations. These calculations are commonly used as a basis for investors, analysts and other interested parties to evaluate and compare the operating performance and value of companies within our industry. Finally, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, constant currency, diluted adjusted income (loss) per share and adjusted net income (loss) figures are financial and performance measures used by management in reviewing results of operations, forecasting, allocating resources or establishing employee incentive programs. Although MoneyGram believes the above non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for the accompanying GAAP financial measures.
