SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global technology platform and digital payments leader PayPal Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: PYPL) today announced third quarter results for the period ended September 30, 2019.

PayPal Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

"We had an excellent quarter financially and operationally, reporting 19% revenue growth, more than 200 basis points of operating margin expansion, accelerating TPV growth and nearly 10 million net new active accounts.  This quarter we also announced that we will be the first foreign payments platform to be licensed to provide online payment services in China, a very significant development that has the potential to meaningfully expand our addressable market," said Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal.

Financial highlights for third quarter 2019

  • Revenue of $4.38 billion; growing 19% on both a spot and foreign currency-neutral (FX-neutral or FXN) basis.
  • GAAP operating income of $0.7 billion, increasing 42%; non-GAAP operating income of $1.03 billion, increasing 30%.
  • GAAP operating margin of 15.9% with non-GAAP operating margin of 23.4%.
  • GAAP tax rate of 4.5%; non-GAAP tax rate of 11.1%.
    • Adjusting for net unrealized losses from strategic investments, GAAP tax rate of 10.3%; non-GAAP tax rate of 13.5%.
  • GAAP EPS of $0.39, increasing 7%; non-GAAP EPS of $0.61, increasing 5%.
    • Q3-19 EPS includes a negative impact of $0.15 from net unrealized losses on strategic investments in  MercadoLibre (NASDAQ: MELI) and Uber (NASDAQ: UBER).
    • Excluding the impact of these net unrealized losses, GAAP EPS of $0.54, increasing 48%; non-GAAP EPS of $0.76 increasing 31%.
  • Cash flow from operations of $1.1 billion with free cash flow of $923 million.
  • Repurchased approximately 3.26 million shares of common stock, returning $350 million to stockholders.
  • Accessed public debt markets for the first time and raised $5.0 billion in senior fixed rate notes.  PayPal used a portion of the proceeds to repay outstanding borrowings on its 364-day term loan credit facility of $2.5 billion and plans to use the remainder of the proceeds consistent with its capital allocation priorities. 

Operating highlights for third quarter 2019

  • 9.8 million net new active accounts, bringing total active accounts to 295 million accounts, up 16%.

  • 39.8 payment transactions per active account on a trailing twelve months basis, up 9%.

PayPal's key business drivers

  • Merchant Services volume grew 31% on an FX-neutral basis. 
  • eBay Marketplaces volume declined 3% on an FX-neutral basis versus growth of 3% in Q3-18, and represented 8% of TPV for the quarter versus 11% a year ago. 
  • Person-to-Person (P2P) volume grew 39% to $51 billion, and represented 28% of TPV.
  • Venmo processed more than $27 billion of TPV in the third quarter, growing 64%.

PayPal's platform initiatives

In September, PayPal announced its plans to acquire a 70% equity interest in Guofubao Information Technology Co., Ltd. (GoPay), a holder of a payment business license in China.  Upon closing, PayPal will be the first foreign payments company to be licensed to provide online payment services in China. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019 and is subject to customary closing conditions.

In October, PayPal and Synchrony announced an agreement to expand and extend their strategic consumer credit relationship. As part of the agreement, Synchrony will become the exclusive issuer of a Venmo co-branded consumer credit card, which is expected to launch in the second half of 2020.

Unaudited Summary of Consolidated Net Revenues

 

We earn revenue from the following types of transactions:

   

Transaction revenues: Net transaction fees charged to merchants and consumers on a transaction basis primarily based on the volume of activity, or Total Payment Volume ("TPV"), completed on our Payments Platform, including our PayPal, PayPal Credit, Venmo, Braintree, Xoom, and iZettle products.

   

Other value added services: Net revenues derived primarily from revenue earned through partnerships, subscription fees, gateway fees, and other services we provide to our merchants and customers. We also earn revenues from interest and fees earned primarily on our PayPal credit portfolio of loans receivable, gain on sale of participation interest in certain loans and advances, and interest earned on certain PayPal customer account balances.

Amounts in the table are rounded to the nearest million, except as otherwise noted. As a result, certain amounts may not recalculate using the rounded amounts provided.

(1) An active account is an account registered directly with PayPal or a platform access partner that has completed a transaction on our Payments Platform, not including gateway-exclusive transactions, within the past 12 months.

(2) Payment transactions are the total number of payments, net of payment reversals, successfully completed on our Payments Platform or enabled by PayPal via a partner payment solution, not including gateway-exclusive transactions.

(3) Number of payment transactions per active account reflects the total number of payment transactions within the previous 12 month period, divided by active accounts at the end of the period.

(4) TPV is the value of payments, net of reversals, successfully completed on our Payments Platform or enabled by PayPal via a partner payment solution, not including gateway-exclusive transactions.

(5) Transaction expense rate is calculated by dividing transaction expense by TPV.

(6) Transaction and loan loss rate is calculated by dividing transaction and loan loss by TPV.

(7) Transaction margin is total revenue less transaction expense and transaction and loan loss, divided by total revenue.

PayPal Holdings, Inc.
Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

To supplement the company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate the company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included in this press release.

These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, as the case may be, that may not be indicative of its core operating results and business outlook. In addition, because the company has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the company's financial reporting.

For its internal budgeting process, and as discussed further below, the company's management uses financial measures that do not include stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation, amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, restructuring-related charges, certain other gains, losses, benefits or charges that are not indicative of the company's core operating results and the income taxes associated with the foregoing. In addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, the company's management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures in reviewing the financial results of the company.

The company excludes the following items from non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP effective tax rate:

Stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes. This consists of expenses for equity awards under our equity incentive plans. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses. The related employer payroll taxes are dependent on our stock price and the timing and size of exercises and vesting of equity awards, over which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe it correlates to the operation of our business.

Amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, and transaction expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business. We incur amortization or impairment of acquired intangible assets and goodwill in connection with acquisitions and may incur significant gains or losses or transactional expenses from the acquisition or disposal of a business and therefore exclude these amounts from our non-GAAP measures. We exclude these items because management does not believe they are reflective of our ongoing operating results.

Restructuring. These consist of expenses for employee severance and other exit and disposal costs. The company excludes significant restructuring charges primarily because management does not believe they are reflective of ongoing operating results.

Certain other significant gains, losses, benefits, or charges that are not indicative of the company's core operating results. These are significant gains, losses, benefits, or charges during a period that are the result of isolated events or transactions which have not occurred frequently in the past and are not expected to occur regularly in the future.  The company excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP results because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results.

Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This adjustment is made to present stock-based compensation and the other amounts described above on an after-tax basis consistent with the presentation of non-GAAP net income.

The company also uses free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure. Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less purchases of property and equipment. The company considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property, buildings, and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in the company's business, make strategic acquisitions and investments, and repurchase stock. A limitation of the utility of free cash flow as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the company's cash balance for the period.

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, the company also analyzes certain measures, including net revenues and operating expenses, on an FX-neutral basis to better measure the comparability of operating results between periods. The company believes that changes in foreign currency exchange rates are not indicative of the company's operations and evaluating growth in net revenues and operating expenses on an FX-neutral basis provides an additional meaningful and comparable assessment of these measures to both management and investors. FX-neutral results are calculated by translating the current period's local currency results with the prior period's exchange rate. FX-neutral growth rates are calculated by comparing the current period's FX-neutral results by the prior period's results, excluding the impact from hedging activities.
