Certain information and disclosures have been omitted or condensed. The accounting policies and methods of computation described in the audited annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022 were applied consistently in the preparation of these condensed interim consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, these Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements should be read together with the Company’s audited annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022.
The Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements as at and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 were authorized for issue by the Company’s Board of Directors on August 9, 2023.

New accounting standards and interpretations adopted
Amendments to IAS 12 Income taxes
These amendments provide a temporary relief from the requirement to recognize deferred income taxes arising from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's enacted or substantively enacted Pillar Two Model rules. The Company has applied these amendments.
New accounting standards and interpretations issued but not yet adopted
The IASB has issued new standards and amendments to existing standards which are applicable to the Company in future periods. There were no significant updates to the standards and interpretations issued but not yet adopted described in the Company's audited annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022.
4. Business combinations
Transactions for the six months ended June 30, 2023
Paya Holdings Inc.
On February 22, 2023, the Company acquired 100% of the shares of Paya Holdings Inc. ("Paya"), a leading U.S. provider of integrated payment and frictionless commerce solutions, for a total consideration of $1,401,121, comprised of $1,391,435 in cash and $9,686 of the portion of replacement share-based awards that was considered part of the consideration transferred. The cash consideration included the settlement by the Company of seller-related payments of $51,876 paid by Paya immediately prior to closing and thereby increased the calculated purchase price. The Company determined that the transaction met the definition of a business combination. Acquisition costs of $15,470 have been expensed during the six months ended June 30, 2023. For the period from the acquisition date to June 30, 2023, Paya contributed revenue of $106,158 and net income of $9,299. The net income includes the amortization of identifiable intangible assets acquired.
Assuming this business combination would have been completed on January 1, 2023, Paya would have contributed pro forma revenue of approximately $146,076 and pro forma net income of approximately $10,019 for the six months ended June 30, 2023. In determining these amounts, the Company assumed that the fair value adjustments, determined provisionally, that arose on the date of acquisition would have been the same if the acquisition had occurred on January 1, 2023. In order to align with the Company's presentation, Paya's revenue contribution amounts are presented net of interchange fees, which was not the case for a small portion of fees prior to its acquisition by the Company.
Paya has become part of the Company's United States federal consolidated tax group. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, this resulted in the set-off of deferred tax assets of the Company with the deferred tax liabilities of Paya.
Since the initial purchase price allocation was recognized, the portion of replacement share-based awards that was considered part of the consideration transferred has been increased by $2,641, current assets decreased by $992, current liabilities increased by $1,015 and deferred tax liabilities decreased by $506 relating to new information obtained about facts and circumstances that existed at the time of acquisition. Those adjustments to the provisional amounts have been recorded with a corresponding impact on goodwill of $4,142.

Other
On March 1, 2023, the Company acquired certain assets of a service provider. The Company determined that the transaction met the definition of a business combination. The total cash consideration for this acquisition was $10,000. Acquisition costs of $129 have been expensed during the six months ended June 30, 2023. For the period from the acquisition date to June 30, 2023, those assets contributed revenue of $522 and net loss of $1,145. The net loss includes the amortization of identifiable intangible assets acquired resulting from the transaction on March 1, 2023.
Assuming this business combination would have been completed on January 1, 2023, the Company estimates that those assets would have contributed pro forma revenue of $794 and pro forma net loss of $1,881 for the six months ended June 30, 2023. In determining these amounts, the Company has assumed that the fair value adjustments, determined provisionally, that arose on the date of acquisition would have been the same if the acquisition had occurred on January 1, 2023.

b) New reducing revolving credit facility
On February 22, 2023, concurrent with the completion of the Paya acquisition (Note 4), the Company entered into a new reducing revolving credit facility in an amount of $800,000. Commencing on June 30, 2023, the commitments in respect of this facility will automatically be permanently reduced by $10 million on the last day of each fiscal quarter. The maturity date of this facility is September 28, 2025. Until the delivery of the Company's financial statements for the quarter ending September 30, 2023, borrowings under the new reducing revolving credit facility bear interest, at the Company's option, at either (a) Term SOFR (including a 0.10% credit spread adjustment) plus a margin of 3.00% or (b) the Alternate base rate1 plus a margin of 2.00%. Thereafter, borrowings under the new reducing revolving credit facility will bear interest, at the Company's option, at either (a) Term SOFR (including a 0.10% credit spread adjustment) plus a margin ranging from 2.5% to 3.25% or (b) the Alternate base rate1 plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.25%, in each case, based on a first lien leverage ratio. As at June 30, 2023, the new reducing revolving credit facility interest rate was 8.20%.
The new reducing revolving credit facility is secured by all current and future assets of the Company and its existing and future subsidiaries. The continued availability of the new reducing revolving facility is subject to the Company's ability to maintain a total leverage ratio of less than or equal to 4.50 : 1.00 for the test period before September 30, 2023, and with the ratio decreasing by 0.25 on October 1, 2023 and every six months thereafter, until it reaches 3.50 : 1.00 on March 31, 2025. The total leverage ratio considers the Company's consolidated net debt, calculated as long-term debt less unrestricted cash, to consolidated adjusted EBITDA, calculated in accordance with the terms of the agreement. The Company must also maintain its interest coverage ratio above 2.50 : 1.00. The interest coverage ratio considers the Company's consolidated adjusted EBITDA, calculated in accordance with the terms of the agreement, to consolidated cash interest expense. The Company was in compliance with all applicable covenants as at June 30, 2023.

1 The Alternate Base Rate is defined as a rate per annum equal to the higher of a) Federal funds effective rate + 0.5%; b) Adjusted Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) effective plus 1.00%; (c) Prime Rate; and (d) 1.00%.
8. Share capital
On March 20, 2023, the Board approved a normal-course issuer bid ("NCIB") to purchase for cancellation a maximum of 5,556,604 Subordinate Voting Shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company’s Subordinate Voting Shares as at March 8, 2023. The Company is authorized to make purchases under the NCIB during the period from March 22, 2023 to March 21, 2024 in accordance with the requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") and the Nasdaq and applicable securities laws. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company repurchased and cancelled 1,350,000 Subordinate Voting Shares for a total consideration, including transaction costs, of $56,042.
The Company also issued 815,201 Subordinate Voting Shares for a cash consideration of $6,399 during the six months ended June 30, 2023 following the exercise of stock options and the settlement of Restricted Share Units ("RSUs").
There were 76,064,619 Multiple Voting Shares and 62,926,809 Subordinate Voting Shares outstanding as at June 30, 2023.

Share repurchase liability
In March 2023, the Company entered into an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with a third-party broker for the Company to allow for the purchase of Subordinate Voting Shares under the NCIB during the Company's blackout periods. Under this agreement, the broker was authorized to repurchase Subordinate Voting Shares, without consultation with the Company, subject to predefined share price and other limitations imposed by the Company and subject to rules and policies of the TSX and the Nasdaq and applicable securities laws, such as a daily purchase restriction. The Company recognized a share repurchase liability on that date. The fair value of the share repurchase liability was determined using the Company's quoted share price.
During the six months ended June 30, 2023, shares were repurchased and cancelled under the ASPP for a cash consideration of $56,042. The change in fair value of share repurchase liability during the six months ended June 30, 2023 was a loss of $571.

The Company cannot grant further awards under the Paya equity plan.
The portion of the replacement awards at the acquisition date relating to services rendered up to the acquisition date, representing an amount of $9,686 was included as part of the consideration transferred (note 4). At the acquisition date, the portion of the replacement awards' fair value relating to services to be rendered in the future was $12,077 and will be recognized as compensation expense over the remaining vesting period.

June 30, 2023 and 2022
(in thousands of US dollars, except for share and per share amounts)
Financial assets and financial liabilities
In establishing fair value, the Company uses a fair value hierarchy based on levels as defined below:
Level 1: defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets.
Level 2: defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable.
Level 3: defined as inputs that are based on little or no observable market data, therefore requiring entities to develop their own assumptions.
The Company has determined that the carrying amounts of its current financial assets and financial liabilities approximate their fair value given the short-term nature of these instruments.
The fair value of the variable interest rate non-current liabilities approximates the carrying amount as the liabilities bear interest at a rate that varies according to the market rate.
As at June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, financial instruments measured at fair value in the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements statements of financial position were as follows:

Fair value remeasurement of level 3 instruments is recognized in selling, general and administrative expenses. Investments measured at fair value through profit and loss and through other comprehensive income are recognized in other non-current assets. Below are the assumptions and valuation methods used in the level 3 fair value measurements:
On March 15, 2023, the Company acquired an equity interest in a private company for a total cash consideration of $25,000. The company designated this equity investment at fair value through other comprehensive income.
As at June 30, 2023, the fair value of the contingent consideration for the Mazooma acquisition is nil (nil for December 2022). The fair value of the contingent consideration is determined using a formula specified in the purchase agreement. The main assumption is the forecast of financial performance. The maximum contingent consideration that could be paid if the future financial targets are met is $331,658 thousands Canadian dollars ($250,346).

This MD&A dated August 9, 2023, should be read in conjunction with the Company’s unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements, along with the related notes thereto for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 (the “Interim Financial Statements”), as well as with our audited consolidated financial statements along with the notes related thereto for the year ended December 31, 2022. The financial information presented in this MD&A is derived from the Interim Financial Statements which have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements, including International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”).

We have prepared this MD&A with reference to National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations of the Canadian Securities Administrators. Under the U.S./Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure System, we are permitted to prepare this MD&A in accordance with Canadian disclosure requirements, which requirements are different than those of the United States.
FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION
This MD&A contains “forward-looking information” and “forward-looking statements” (collectively, “forward-looking information”) within the meaning of applicable securities laws. Such forward-looking information may include, without limitation, information with respect to our objectives and the strategies to achieve these objectives, as well as information with respect to our beliefs, plans, expectations, anticipations, estimates and intentions. This forward-looking information is identified by the use of terms and phrases such as “may”, “would”, “should”, “could”, “expect”, “intend”, “estimate”, “anticipate”, “plan”, “foresee”, “believe”, or “continue”, the negative of these terms and similar terminology, including references to assumptions, although not all forward-looking information contains these terms and phrases. Particularly, statements relating to the Paya acquisition, including expectations regarding anticipated cost savings and synergies and the strength, complementarity and compatibility with Nuvei's business; information regarding our expectations of future results, performance, achievements, prospects or opportunities or the markets in which we operate, expectations regarding industry trends and the size and growth rates of addressable markets, our business plans and growth strategies, addressable market opportunity for our solutions, expectations regarding growth and cross-selling opportunities and intention to capture an increasing share of addressable markets, the costs and success of our sales and marketing efforts, intentions to expand existing relationships, further penetrate verticals, enter new geographical markets, expand into and further increase penetration of international markets, intentions to selectively pursue and successfully integrate acquisitions, and expected acquisition outcomes and benefits, future investments in our business and anticipated capital expenditures, our intention to continuously innovate, differentiate and enhance our platform and solutions, expected pace of ongoing legislation of regulated activities and industries, our competitive strengths and competitive position in our industry, expectations regarding our revenue, revenue mix and the revenue generation potential of our solutions and expectations regarding our margins and future profitability is forward-looking information. Economic and geopolitical uncertainties, including regional conflicts and wars, including potential impacts of sanctions, may also heighten the impact of certain factors described herein.
In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, intentions, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances contain forward-looking information. Statements containing forward-looking information are not historical facts but instead represent management’s expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events or circumstances.

Forward-looking information is based on management's beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management, regarding, among other things, assumptions regarding foreign exchange rate, competition, political environment and economic performance of each region where the Company operates and general economic conditions and the competitive environment within our industry, including the following assumptions: (a) the Company will continue to effectively execute against its key strategic growth priorities, without any material adverse impact from macroeconomic headwinds on its or its customers' business, financial condition, financial performance, liquidity nor any significant reduction in demand for its products and services, (b) the economic conditions in our core markets, geographies and verticals, including resulting consumer spending and employment, remaining at close to current levels, (c) assumptions as to foreign exchange rates and interest rates, including inflation, (d) the Company's continued ability to manage its growth effectively, (e) the Company's ability to continue to attract and retain key talent and personnel required to achieve its plans and strategies, including sales, marketing, support and product and technology operations, in each case both domestically and internationally, (f) the Company’s ability to successfully identify, complete, integrate and realize the expected benefits of future acquisitions as well as assumptions related to the Paya acquisition such as: the Company's ability to retain and attract new business, achieve synergies and strengthen its market position arising from successful integration plans, to complete the integration of the Paya business within anticipated time periods and at expected cost levels and to attract and retain key employees, management's estimates and expectations in relation to future economic and business conditions and other factors, and resulting impact on growth in various financial metrics (g) the absence of adverse changes in legislative or regulatory matters, (h) the Company’s continued ability to upskill and modify its compliance capabilities as regulations change or as the Company enters new markets, (i) the Company’s continued ability to access liquidity and capital resources, including its ability to secure debt or equity financing on satisfactory terms, and (j) the absence of adverse changes in current tax laws. Unless otherwise indicated, forward-looking information does not give effect to the potential impact of any mergers, acquisitions, divestitures or business combinations that may be announced or closed after the date hereof. Although the forward-looking information contained herein is based upon what we believe are reasonable assumptions, investors are cautioned against placing undue reliance on this information since actual results may vary from the forward-looking information.
Forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those that are disclosed in or implied by such forward-looking information.

Overview
We are a global payment company providing payment technology and solutions to businesses across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa ("MEA") and Latin America. We believe we are differentiated by our proprietary technology platform, which is purpose-built for high-growth eCommerce, business to business ("B2B"), government and integrated payments. Our platform enables customers to pay and/or accept payments worldwide regardless of their customers’ location, device or preferred payment method. Our solutions span the entire payments stack and include a fully integrated payments engine with global processing capabilities, a turnkey solution for frictionless payment experiences and a broad suite of data-driven business intelligence tools and risk management services. Through a single integration, we provide seamless and secure pay-in and payout capabilities, connecting our customers with their customers in over 200 markets worldwide, with local acquiring in 47 of those markets. With support for 634 alternative payment methods (APMs”), and nearly 150 currencies, our customers can capture every payment opportunity that comes their way. In short, we provide the payment technology and intelligence our customers need to succeed locally and globally, through one integration – propelling them further, faster.
While global commerce continues to pivot online, eCommerce channels are converging and creating new and fast-growing opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Rapidly scaling across these commerce channels, however, can be complex and costly for businesses that rely on multiple providers in each local market. For example, customers may use disparate and varied systems for gateway services, payment processing, online fraud prevention, business intelligence and more, creating operational distractions and workflow challenges, which result in additional costs and financial inefficiencies. In parallel, consumers expect a consistent and frictionless transaction experience across all channels whether from a mobile device or computer. As a result, we believe businesses increasingly seek payment providers such as Nuvei who have a unified approach and can offer end-to-end solutions to help them navigate this complex environment.
We sell and distribute our solutions globally primarily through direct sales, indirect sales for SMBs and eCommerce integrated technology partners and platforms. Our approach to distribution is designed to enable us to efficiently market our payments and technology solutions at scale and is customized by both region and vertical to optimize sales. By relying on our local commercial teams and distribution partners who act as trusted technology providers to our customers, we believe we are able to serve more customers globally and grow with them as they grow their businesses and expand into new markets. We focus on the needs of our customers and how we can help them grow their revenue, and in turn our volume, with them. Due to the scalable nature of our business model and the inherent operating leverage, increases in volume drive profitable revenue growth.

Our revenue is primarily based on sales volume generated from our customers’ daily sales and through various transaction and subscription-based fees for our modular technology. Modular technology includes, for example, gateway, global processing, APMs, currency management, global payouts, fraud risk management, card issuing, open banking, data reporting, reconciliation tools, in addition to a long list of value-add capabilities. Our revenue is largely recurring due to the mission-critical nature of our product and service offerings and deep integration of our payments technology into our customers’ enterprise resource planning systems. Additionally, our model has delivered rapid growth in eCommerce revenue. We believe the depth and breadth of our payment capabilities help our customers establish and expand their presence in emerging commerce channels across many markets. This enables us to develop long-standing relationships with our customers, which in turn drive strong retention and significant cross-selling opportunities.

(b)Revenue at constant currency, Revenue growth at constant currency, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures are non-IFRS financial measures and non-IFRS ratios. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. See “Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures”.
Paya acquisition
On February 22, 2023, Nuvei acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Paya Holdings Inc. ("Paya"), for a total cash consideration of approximately $1.4 billion, comprised of cash on hand, cash from our New reducing revolving facility (as defined below) and $9.7 million of the portion of replacement share-based awards that was considered part of the consideration transferred. The cash consideration included the settlement by Nuvei of seller-related payments of $51.9 million paid by Paya immediately prior to closing and thereby increased the calculated purchase price. Paya was a leading provider of integrated payment and commerce solutions in the United States. This acquisition is expected to accelerate our integrated payment strategy, diversify our business into key high-growth non-cyclical verticals with large addressable end markets and enhance the execution of our growth plan.
Credit facilities
On February 22, 2023 and in connection with the Paya acquisition, the Company entered into a new secured pari passu first lien reducing revolving credit facility ("New reducing revolving credit facility") of $800 million. Until the delivery of the Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the quarter ending September 30, 2023, borrowings under the New reducing revolving credit facility bear interest, at our option, at either (a) Term SOFR (including a 0.1% credit spread adjustment) plus a margin of 3.00% or (b) an alternate base rate plus a margin of 2.00%. Thereafter, borrowings under the New reducing revolving facility will bear interest, at our option, at either (a) Term SOFR (including a 0.1% credit spread adjustment) plus a margin ranging from 2.50% to 3.25% or (b) an alternate base rate plus a margin ranging from 1.50% to 2.25%, in each case, based on a first lien leverage ratio. Commencing on June 30, 2023, the commitments in respect of the New reducing revolving credit facility are automatically permanently reduced by $10 million on the last day of each fiscal quarter. The maturity of the New reducing revolving credit facility is September 28, 2025.
Normal Course Issuer Bid
On March 20, 2023, the Board approved a normal-course issuer bid ("NCIB") to purchase for cancellation a maximum of 5,556,604 Subordinate Voting Shares, representing approximately 10% of the Company’s Subordinate Voting Shares as at March 8, 2023. The Company is authorized to make purchases under the NCIB during the period from March 22, 2023 to March 21, 2024 in accordance with the requirements of the TSX and the Nasdaq and applicable securities laws. In March 2023, the Company also entered into an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") with a third-party broker for the Company to allow for the purchase of Subordinate Voting Shares under the NCIB during the Company's blackout periods. Under this agreement, the broker was authorized to repurchase Subordinate Voting Shares, without consultation with the Company, subject to predefined share price, defined time period and other limitations imposed by the Company and subject to rules and policies of the TSX and the Nasdaq and applicable securities laws, such as a daily purchase restriction. During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company repurchased and cancelled 1,350,000 Subordinate Voting Shares for a total consideration, including transaction costs, of $56.0 million.
Quarterly dividend
On August 8, 2023, the Board of Directors approved a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per common share payable on September 5, 2023 to shareholders of record on August 21, 2023.

Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures
Our Interim Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS, applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements, including International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. The information presented in this MD&A includes non-IFRS financial measures, non-IFRS financial ratios and supplementary financial measures, namely Revenue at constant currency, Revenue growth at constant currency, Organic revenue at constant currency, Organic revenue growth at constant currency, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, Adjusted net income per basic share, Adjusted net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, Total volume, Total volume at constant currency and eCommerce volume. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement IFRS measures by providing further understanding of our results of operations from our perspective. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s financial statements reported under IFRS. These measures are used to provide investors with additional insight of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in Nuvei’s business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use these non-IFRS and other financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. We also use these measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts and to determine components of management compensation. We believe these measures are important additional measures of our performance, primarily because they and similar measures are used widely among others in the payment technology industry as a means of evaluating a company’s underlying operating performance.
Non-IFRS Financial Measures
Revenue at constant currency: Revenue at constant currency means revenue adjusted for the impact of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. This measure helps provide insight on comparable revenue growth by removing the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates year-over-year. Foreign currency exchange impact in the current period is calculated using prior period quarterly average exchange rates applied to the current period foreign currency amounts.
Organic revenue at constant currency: Organic revenue at constant currency means revenue, as determined under IFRS, adjusted to exclude the revenue attributable to acquired businesses for a period of 12 months following their acquisition and excluding revenue attributable to divested businesses, adjusted for the impact of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. Foreign currency exchange impact in the current period is calculated using prior period quarterly average exchange rates applied to the current period foreign currency amounts. This measure helps provide insight on organic and acquisition-related growth and presents useful information about comparable revenue growth.
Adjusted EBITDA: We use Adjusted EBITDA as a means to evaluate operating performance, by eliminating the impact of non-operational or non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before finance costs (recovery), finance income, depreciation and amortization, income tax expense, acquisition, integration and severance costs, share-based payments and related payroll taxes, loss (gain) on foreign currency exchange, and legal settlement and other.
Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures: We use Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures (which we define as acquisition of intangible assets and property and equipment) as a supplementary indicator of our operating performance.
Adjusted net income: We use Adjusted net income as an indicator of business performance and profitability with our current tax and capital structure. Adjusted net income is defined as net income (loss) before acquisition, integration and severance costs, share-based payments and related payroll taxes, loss (gain) on foreign currency exchange, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and the related income tax expense or recovery for these items. Adjusted net income also excludes change in redemption value of liability-classified common and preferred shares, change in fair value of share repurchase liability and accelerated amortization of deferred transaction costs and legal settlement and other.
7


Non-IFRS Financial Ratios
Revenue growth at constant currency: Revenue growth at constant currency means the year-over-year change in Revenue at constant currency divided by reported revenue in the prior period. We use Revenue growth at constant currency to provide better comparability of revenue trends year-over-year, without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
Organic revenue growth at constant currency: Organic revenue growth at constant currency means the year-over-year change in Organic revenue at constant currency divided by comparable Organic revenue in the prior period. We use Organic revenue growth at constant currency to provide better comparability of revenue trends year-over-year, without the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and fluctuations in foreign currency exchanges rates.
Adjusted net income per basic share and per diluted share: We use Adjusted net income per basic share and per diluted share as an indicator of performance and profitability of our business on a per share basis. Adjusted net income per basic share and per diluted share means Adjusted net income less net income attributable to non-controlling interest divided by the basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The number of share-based awards used in the diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding in the Adjusted net income per diluted share calculation is determined using the treasury stock method as permitted under IFRS.
Supplementary Financial Measures
We monitor the following key performance indicators to help us evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans and make strategic decisions. Our key performance indicators may be calculated in a manner that differs from similar key performance indicators used by other companies.
Total volume and eCommerce volume: We believe Total volume and eCommerce volume are indicators of performance of our business. Total volume and similar measures are used widely among others in the payments industry as a means of evaluating a company’s performance. We define Total volume as the total dollar value of transactions processed in the period by customers under contractual agreement with us. eCommerce volume is the portion of Total volume for which the transaction did not occur at a physical location. Total volume and eCommerce volume do not represent revenue earned by us. Total volume includes acquiring volume, where we are in the flow of funds in the settlement transaction cycle, gateway/technology volume, where we provide our gateway/technology services but are not in the flow of funds in the settlement transaction cycle, as well as the total dollar value of transactions processed relating to APMs and payouts. Since our revenue is primarily sales volume and transaction-based, generated from merchants’ daily sales and through various fees for value-added services provided to our customers, fluctuations in Total volume will generally impact our revenue.
Total volume at constant currency: Total volume at constant currency is used as an indicator of performance of our business on a more comparable foreign currency exchange basis. Total volume at constant currency means Total volume adjusted for the impact of foreign currency exchange fluctuations. This measure helps provide better comparability of business trends year-over-year, without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Foreign currency exchange impact in the current period is calculated using prior period quarterly average exchange rates applied to the current period foreign currency amounts.

Summary of Factors Affecting Our Performance
We believe that the growth and future success of our business depends on many factors, including those described below. While each of these factors presents significant opportunities for our business, they also pose important challenges, some of which are discussed below as well as in the section entitled “Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry” of our AIF for the year ended December 31, 2022, and in our other filings with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.
Growing with our Existing Customers. Our success is directly correlated with our customers’ success. We focus on the high-growth markets within omnichannel payments and intend to grow alongside our existing customers as they grow their business and expand into new markets within selected high-growth end-markets, including online retail, online marketplaces, digital goods and services, regulated online gaming, social gaming, financial services, utilities, healthcare, non-profit and travel. eCommerce represents the majority of our Total volume with eCommerce volume accounting for 89% of our Total volume in the six months ended June 30, 2023. Key characteristics of these verticals are inherent growth, longevity and propensity to operate globally.
In addition, our existing customers represent a significant opportunity for us to cross-sell and up-sell products and services with limited incremental sales and marketing expenses. As our customers increase their business volume, we can offer more solutions from our Native Commerce Platform. Our future revenue growth and achieving and maintaining profitability is dependent upon our ability to maintain existing customer relationships and to continue to expand our customers’ use of our comprehensive suite of solutions.
Acquiring New Customers. Our future revenue growth will also largely depend upon the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts. We have significant sales and marketing experience in capturing and serving SMBs and third-party partners in North America and large enterprises in Europe. We intend to leverage this experience and enable customer base expansion by targeting large enterprises in North America, with a focus in the eCommerce channels. Key to our success in achieving customer base expansion is continued investment in marketing and in our direct sales team and further leveraging our broad and diversified network of partners.
Expanding in Regions Internationally. We plan to expand and deepen our footprint in geographies where we have an emerging presence today, such as Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America. Our expansion has also been driven by the needs of our customers. For each new country where we seek to expand, we focus on understanding the needs of the local market and invest to develop relationships, while gaining an appreciation for the appropriate local regulatory and compliance frameworks. We believe this will help our growth strategy in achieving global presence and connectivity across all targeted markets.
Investing in our Technology and Product Portfolio. We believe our technology-first culture enables us to enhance our offerings to remain at the forefront of payments innovation. Specifically, our Native Commerce Platform enables us to deliver comprehensive payments and technology solutions to power a convenient and secure transaction experience for our customers and their customers. Further investment in this platform is necessary to expand and keep our portfolio of services to our customers technologically current. Close collaboration with our customers through ongoing communication and feedback loops is also key, as it enables a better design and delivery of solutions that meet their specific and evolving needs.
Adding new use cases and verticals to our technology. We are adding new use cases and verticals to our technology through acquisitions. For example, with the acquisition of Paya, we are now bringing our technology and expertise to under-penetrated verticals such as healthcare and non-profit. By adding these use cases to our existing offering, we are growing our total addressable market.
Selectively Pursuing and Successfully Executing Acquisitions. We have in the past augmented, and intend in the future to augment, our capabilities and organic growth with strategic acquisitions. For example, on February 22, 2023, we acquired Paya. Critical to our success is continuing to be highly disciplined in integrating acquisitions in a manner that allows us to fulfill the potential that these acquisitions bring.
Maintaining and Adding to our Acquiring Bank and Payment Network Relationships. We have built strong relationships with acquiring banks and the payment networks globally. The maintenance and/or expansion of these relationships and strong collaboration on maintaining adequate procedures in monitoring the risk profile of our customer base will be a key enabler in the pursuit of our growth strategies.

Adapting to Regulatory Changes. The nature of our product and service offerings necessitates that we adhere to strict regulatory regimes in the countries where we operate. Our operational teams are fully versed in the varying regulatory requirements. As regulations change or as we enter new markets with different regulatory requirements, we will continue to upskill and modify, our compliance capabilities as appropriate, such as our customer underwriting, risk management, know your customer and anti-money laundering capabilities, in as seamless as possible a manner to minimize disruption to our customers’ businesses.
Digital assets and cryptocurrencies. We generate a small portion of our revenue from customers operating in the digital assets and cryptocurrencies industry. Cryptocurrencies have historically and currently exhibit significant price volatility that have and could continue to adversely affect the operations of our customers in that industry, and, in turn, our results of operations and profitability. As a result, the Company is exposed to volatility in the cryptocurrency industry generally, including in sectors of the cryptocurrency industry that do not directly apply to the Company’s payment services business but that are integral to the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. Cryptocurrency market prices depend, directly or indirectly, on the prices set on exchanges and other trading venues, which are new and, in most cases, largely unregulated as compared to established, regulated exchanges for securities, derivatives and other currencies.
Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Exchange rate fluctuations may negatively affect our results of operations. Our presentation currency is the US dollar. We derive the largest portion of our revenues in US dollars and the largest proportion of our expenses in US dollars. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations have and may continue to negatively affect our revenue that is denominated in currency other than the US dollar. To the extent that we have significant revenues denominated in foreign currencies, any strengthening of the US dollar would reduce our revenue and any weakening of the US dollar would increase our revenue as measured in US dollars.
Key Components of Results of Operations
Revenue
Merchant Transaction and Processing Services. Revenues from our merchant transaction and processing services are derived primarily from eCommerce payment processing services, and stems from relationships with individual customers. Additionally, transaction and processing services revenues stem from contracts with financial service providers and other merchant acquirers. The contracts stipulate the types of services and set forth how fees will be incurred and calculated. Merchant transaction and processing services revenues are generated from processing electronic payment transactions for customers.
Our transaction and processing services revenue is primarily comprised of (a) fees calculated based on a percentage of the monetary value of transactions processed; (b) fees calculated based on the number of transactions processed; (c) service fees; or (d) some combination thereof that are associated with transaction and processing services.
We present revenue net of the interchange fees charged by the card issuing financial institutions and the fees charged by the payment networks when it is determined that we are acting as an agent and do not have the ability to direct the use of and obtain substantially all of the benefits of these services.
Other Revenue. We may sell hardware (“point-of-sale equipment”) as part of our contracts with customers. Hardware consists of terminals or gateway devices. We do not manufacture hardware but purchase hardware from third party vendors and hold the hardware in inventory until purchased by a customer.
For more information on our revenue recognition policies, refer to Note 3 of the audited annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Cost of Revenue
Processing Costs. Processing costs consist of fees paid to processing suppliers. When we are the primary obligor providing payment processing services, we record processing fees paid to processing suppliers as a cost of revenue. If we are not the primary obligor providing payment processing services, processing fees are netted from the revenue recorded for such transactions and we do not record separate processing fees as a cost of revenue. Processing costs also include losses resulting from our transaction guarantee solutions.
Costs of Goods Sold. Costs of goods sold consist primarily of costs associated with selling point-of-sale equipment, such as the cost of acquiring the equipment, including purchase price, expenses associated with a third-party fulfillment company, shipping, handling and inventory adjustments.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Our selling, general and administrative expenses primarily represent the amounts associated with commissions, employee compensation, share-based payments, and depreciation and amortization.
Commissions. Commissions are comprised of incentives paid to third party partners for referring customers.
Employee Compensation. Employee compensation consists of salaries, incentives and benefits (excluding share-based payments which are disclosed separately) earned by our employees. Employee compensation includes costs related to the various functions of the Company, including technology, sales and marketing, operations, as well as various business support functions.
Share-Based Payments. Share-based payments consist of our equity-settled share-based compensation earned by our employees, directors and consultants.
Depreciation. Depreciation consists of depreciation of property and equipment, primarily point-of-sale equipment, office and computer equipment, furniture and fixtures, leasehold improvements and right of use assets over buildings. We calculate depreciation using the straight-line method over the useful life of the relevant asset or over the remaining lease term, as applicable.
Amortization. Amortization consists primarily of amortization of intangible assets, which consist of internally generated and externally purchased software that is used in providing processing services to customers. It also includes trademarks, technologies, distributor commission buyouts and partner and merchant relationships that are acquired by the Company. Distributor commission buyouts represent amounts paid to independent sales organizations to buy out their rights to future residual commission payments. These intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over the course of the relevant asset’s useful life.
Selling, general and administrative expenses also consist of professional fees, transaction losses, contingent consideration adjustments and other expenses.
We anticipate increases in selling, general and administrative expenses as we invest in our business such as our sales force and brand awareness. Please refer to the section entitled “Risks Relating to Regulation” of our AIF.
Net Finance Costs
Net finance costs primarily represent amounts associated with:
Interest on Loans and Borrowings. Interest expense consists primarily of interest incurred on term loans outstanding under the credit facilities.
Change in Fair Value of Share Repurchase Liability. When the Company enters into an automatic share purchase plan, it recognizes a share repurchase liability. The share repurchase liability is a financial liability accounted for at fair value through profit or loss, and as such, is remeasured at fair market value until it is settled or upon termination of the agreement, with fair value changes being recognized in finance costs.
14


Interest Income. Interest income consists of interest received on cash and cash equivalents held by the Company.
Loss (Gain) on Foreign Currency Exchange
Loss (gain) on foreign currency exchange results from monetary items that are held by the Company or its subsidiaries in a currency different than its functional currency. These items are translated into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the date of the transactions or when the items are re-measured at the end of the reporting period. The resulting gains and losses subsequently being recognized are recorded in loss (gain) on foreign currency exchange.
Income Tax Expense
Income tax expense comprises current and deferred taxes. Current and deferred taxes are recognized in profit or loss except to the extent that they relate to a business combination, or items recognized directly in equity or in other comprehensive income (loss).

Revenue307,026 211,294 95,732 45 
For the three months ended June 30, 2023, revenue increased by $95.7 million or 45% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase in revenue mainly reflects the contribution of revenue from Paya of $75.9 million and organic revenue growth. Revenue was also impacted unfavorably by a decrease in year-over-year revenue of $15.5 million from our digital assets and cryptocurrency vertical and changes in foreign currency exchange rates year-over-year by $0.4 million, which partly offset organic revenue growth. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, Organic revenue at constant currency was $231.2 million and Organic revenue growth at constant currency was 9%. See "Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures".
Total volume increased to $50.6 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2023 from $30.1 billion in the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $20.5 billion or 68% mainly due to the contribution from Paya. Total volume at constant currency was $50.4 billion, an increase of 67% over the same period.

For the three months ended June 30, 2023, selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $75.3 million or 51% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022 primarily due to the following:
Commissions. During the three months ended June 30, 2023, commission expense increased by $30.5 million or 103% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was primarily due to the contribution from Paya.
Employee Compensation. During the three months ended June 30, 2023, employee compensation increased by $16.0 million or 43% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The employee compensation includes costs related to the various functions of the Company, including technology, sales and marketing, human resources, and administration. The increase year-over-year mainly reflects higher headcount due to Paya acquisition as well as organic growth, including those in direct sales and account management to drive future growth and execute on our strategy.
Share-based Payments. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, share-based payments increased by $3.2 million as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022, mainly due to the contribution from Paya. Of the $35.9 million of the share-based payments for the three months ended June 30, 2023, $9.9 million related to awards with an exercise price or share price performance condition in excess of $100.00. As at June 30, 2023, unrecognized share-based payments were approximately $162.1 million of which $49.8 million related to awards with an exercise price or share price performance condition in excess of $100.00. Share-based payments represented 12% of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2023 compared to 15% of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation of property and equipment expenses and amortization of intangible assets for the three months ended June 30, 2023 increased by $8.9 million or 33% as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was mainly due to higher amortization of intangible assets acquired as part of the Paya acquisition.
Professional Fees. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, professional fees increased by $6.5 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase mainly reflected fees related to ongoing acquisition integration activities.
Other. For the three months ended June 30, 2023, other expenses increased by $10.1 million compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was mostly due to incremental costs related to the contribution from Paya, as well as higher technology and marketing expenses.

During the three months ended June 30, 2023, net finance cost increased by $32.0 million as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was primarily due to the following items:
Interest on advances to third parties and interest income. The decrease in finance income of $0.7 million was mainly due to lower interest income due to lower cash and cash equivalents balance during the three months ended June 30, 2023 as a result of the Paya acquisition, partially offset by the higher interest rate environment.
Interest on Loans and Borrowings. The increase of $23.5 million was mainly due a higher debt balance and amortization of financing cost resulting from the Paya acquisition and a higher interest rate environment in the three months ended June 30, 2023 .

Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023 was $2.5 million on net income before income tax of $14.1 million, representing an effective tax rate of 17.6% for the period. The effective income tax rate was lower than the Canadian parent's statutory income tax rate of 26.5% because it includes the favorable impact of lower income tax rates in other jurisdictions and non-taxable foreign exchange gains, partially offset by share-based payments of $35.9 million recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2023 that are non-deductible in most jurisdictions.
Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $5.8 million on income before income tax of $40.9 million, representing an effective tax rate of 14.3% for the period. This effective tax rate was lower than the Canadian parent statutory tax rate of 26.5% mainly reflected the favorable impact of lower tax rates in certain jurisdictions as well as non-taxable items, including the change in fair value of share repurchase liability (gain), and was partially offset by share-based payments of $32.7 million recognized in the three months ended June 30, 2022 that are non-deductible for tax purposes in most jurisdictions.

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, net finance cost increased by $38.0 million as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was primarily due to the following items:
Interest on advances to third parties and interest income. The increase in finance income of $4.0 million is mainly due to an increase in interest income due to higher cash and cash equivalents balance in 2023 until the Paya acquisition, as well as the relatively higher interest rate environment.
Interest on Loans and Borrowings. The increase of $36.2 million was mainly due to higher debt balance and amortization of financing cost resulting from the Paya acquisition and a higher interest rate environment in the six months ended June 30, 2023.
Change in Fair Value of Share Repurchase Liability. The remeasurement loss of $0.6 million associated with the share repurchase liability in the six months ended June 30, 2023 is due to an increase in share price between the ASPP start date and the completion of the share repurchase under the ASPP in March 2023, which resulted in a higher fair value measurement of the financial liability. The gain of $5.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022 is due to the decrease in share price between the ASPP start date and the completion of the share repurchase under the ASPP in May 2022.

Income tax expense for the six months ended June 30, 2023 was $6.4 million on income before income tax of $9.7 million, representing an effective tax rate of 65.7% for the period. The effective income tax rate was higher than the Canadian parent's statutory income tax rate of 26.5% because it includes the unfavorable impact of share-based payments of $71.4 million recognized in the six months ended June 30, 2023 that are non-deductible for income tax purposes in most jurisdictions and the impact of acquisition costs that are not deductible for income tax purposes, and was partially offset by the favorable impact of lower income tax rates in other jurisdictions.
Income tax expense for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $14.4 million on income before income tax of $54.0 million, representing an effective tax rate of 26.7% for the period.
