Nayax Reports First Quarter 2024 Financial Results 

Strong first quarter with recurring revenue up 43% YoY;

Total revenue of $64 million; Adjusted EBITDA of $3.6 million (1);

Improving profitability with gross margins reaching 43.8%

Reiterates full year 2024 guidance: revenue between $325-335 million, representing 38% YoY growth and adjusted EBITDA between $30-35 million, over 266% YoY growth (2)

HERZLIYA, Israel, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nayax Ltd. (Nasdaq: NYAX, TASE: NYAX), a global commerce payments and loyalty platform designed to help merchants scale their business, today announced its financial results for the first quarter, ended March 31, 2024.

"I am pleased with our first quarter results, which continued our strong trajectory, and especially with the significant improvements in recurring revenue, gross margins, and adjusted EBITDA. As we look ahead through the rest of the year, we are particularly excited about the strong potential that we see in our pipeline, as well as the increased traction that both our growth engines and recent M&A will provide us. These factors set the stage for accelerated revenue growth as the year progresses. Furthermore, thanks to the strong operating leverage within our business model, we anticipate significant improvements to our bottom line, enabling us to meet our targets for the year," commented Yair Nechmad, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.

Sagit Manor, Chief Financial Officer added, “Recurring revenue rose to 72% of total revenue, growing 43% year over year. Additionally, we showed a record organic growth of 62,000 in the number of managed and connected devices. We expect our revenue growth rate to accelerate in the coming quarters, allowing us to achieve our growth target for the year. Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter was $3.6 million, versus last year’s adjusted EBITDA loss of ($0.6) million. Our dollar-based net retention rate remained high at 134%, reflecting continued customer satisfaction and loyalty for our comprehensive solutions.”

      (1)   Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure. Please refer to the tables at the end of this news release for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable IFRS measure.
      (2)   The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to IFRS net income (loss) due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, in particular, because special items such as finance expenses and Issuance and acquisition costs used to calculate projected net income (loss) vary dramatically based on actual events.  Therefore, the Company is not able to forecast on an IFRS basis with reasonable certainty all deductions needed in order to provide an IFRS calculation of projected net income (loss) at this time. The amount of these deductions may be material, and therefore could result in projected IFRS net income (loss) being materially less than projected adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS).

First Quarter 2024 Financial Highlights

(All comparisons are relative to the first quarter and three-month period ended March 31, 2023, unless otherwise stated)

Revenue Breakdown Summary (*)Q1 2024 ($M)Q1 2023 ($M)Growth (%)
SaaS revenue17.913.236%
Payment processing fees28.319.148%
Total recurring revenue (*)46.232.343%
POS devices revenue (**)17.820.1-11%
Total revenue (***)64.052.422%

(*) Recurring revenue comprised of SaaS revenue and payment processing fees.
(**) POS devices revenue includes revenues that are derived from the sale of our hardware products.
(***) Q1 2024 includes Retail Pro numbers.

  • Revenue of $64.0 million of which recurring revenue from SaaS and processing fees comprised 72% of total revenue and grew 43%.
  • Hardware revenues decreased this quarter by 11% because of a shift in customer mix towards SMBs, as well as a change in product mix which favored devices with lower average selling prices, both of which are characterized with higher gross margins.
  • Gross margin improved strongly to 43.8% from 34.1%. This was primarily due to significantly improved hardware margins rising to 27% from 12%, as a result of steps taken to increase efficiencies within Nayax’s business and supply chain, as well as the product and customer mix sold, as mentioned above.
  • Operating loss was reduced to $2.8 million, compared to an operating loss of $5.2 million.
  • Net loss for the period was $5.0 million or ($0.15) per share, compared to a net loss of $5.5 million, or ($0.17) per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA improved by $4.2 million to a positive $3.6 million, compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.6 million.
  • Revenue and adjusted EBITDA were negatively impacted by an approximate $1.3 million purchase accounting adjustment, due to a fair-value adjustment to deferred revenue, related to the Retail Pro acquisition.
  • As of March 31, 2024, the company had $93 million in cash and cash equivalents and short-term deposits. The increase was primarily due to the successful completion of a public offering during the quarter.
  • As of March 31, 2024, short-term and long-term debt balances stood at $48.2 million.

Financial Outlook

For the full year 2024, management reiterates full year revenue, hardware gross margin, adjusted EBITDA, and cash flow guidance.

Full year 2024 revenue expectations continue to be in the range of $325 million to $335 million, on a constant currency basis, representing year-over-year growth of over 38%.

Hardware gross margins are expected to be in the range of 25% to 27%. Due to improvements in Nayax’s supply chain, gross margins are trending to the top end of the range. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $30 million to $35 million as Nayax continues to scale its business and benefit from its high operating leverage.

Management expects that for the full year 2024, free cash flow, defined as operating cash flow minus capital expenditure, will be positive in aggregate.

Over the long term, management targets an approximate 35% CAGR on revenue, driven by a combination of organic growth and strategic M&A. The long-term adjusted EBITDA margin target is 30%, and the long-term gross margin target is 50%.

Improvements over the coming years are expected to be driven by leasing options for IoT POS, continuing to grow SaaS revenue and payment processing fees, and services offered through Nayax’s various growth engine initiatives.

Many of the forward-looking statements contained in this press release can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “expect,” “should,” “plan,” “intend,” “estimate” and “potential,” among others. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our intent, belief or current expectations. Forward-looking statements are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements due to of various factors, including, but not limited to: our expectations regarding general market conditions, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global economic trends; changes in consumer tastes and preferences; fluctuations in inflation, interest rate and exchange rates in the global economic environment; the availability of qualified personnel and the ability to retain such personnel; changes in commodity costs, labor, distribution and other operating costs; our ability to implement our growth strategy; changes in government regulation and tax matters; other factors that may affect our financial condition, liquidity and results of operations; general economic, political, demographic and business conditions in Israel, including the ongoing war in Israel that began on October 7, 2023 and global perspectives regarding that conflict; the success of operating initiatives, including advertising and promotional efforts and new product and concept development by us and our competitors; and other risk factors discussed under “Risk Factors” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on February 28, 2024 (our "Annual Report"). The preceding list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all of our forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are based on our beliefs, assumptions and expectations of future performance, taking into account the information currently available to us. These statements are only estimates based upon our current expectations and projections about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. In particular, you should consider the risks provided under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee that future results, levels of activity, performance and events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or will occur. Each forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date of the particular statement. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason, to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations.

Use of Non-IFRS Financial Information

In addition to various operational metrics and financial measures in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted under International Financial Reporting Standards, or IFRS, this press release contains Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS financial measure, as a measure to evaluate our past results and future prospects.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we define as loss for the period plus finance expenses, tax expense, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation costs, non-recurring issuance and acquisition related costs and our share in losses of associates accounted for by the equity method.

We present Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because it is a measure that our management and board of directors utilize as a measure to evaluate our operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, when taken collectively with financial measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, may be helpful to investors because it provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, our management does not consider this non-IFRS measure in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted EBITDA may be different from similarly titled measures used by other companies. The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA is that it excludes significant expenses that are required by IFRS to be recorded in our financial statements, as further detailed above. In addition, it is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses are excluded or included in determining Adjusted EBITDA.

A reconciliation is provided at the end of this press release for Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with IFRS. Investors are encouraged to review net loss and the reconciliation to Adjusted EBITDA included below and to not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Constant Currency

Nayax presents constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. Future expected results for transactions in currencies other than United States dollars are converted into United States dollars using the exchange rates in effect in the last month of the reporting period. Nayax provides this financial information to aid investors in better understanding our performance. These constant currency financial measures presented in this release should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, the measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The Company cannot provide expected 2024 net income without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, of which unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company’s IFRS financial results.
