PayPal Reports Strong Second Quarter Results and Raises Revenue Outlook

Revenue increased 15% to $2.650 billion, 19% FX-neutral revenue growth

GAAP EPS increased 7% to $0.27 and non-GAAP EPS increased 11% on a pro forma basis to $0.36

Announces strategic partnership with Visa

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global technology platform and payments leader PayPal Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PYPL) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016. For the quarter, PayPal gained market share, expanded its customer base, deepened engagement with customers and delivered on its financial commitments. The company also announced a long-term partnership agreement with Visa.

Financial highlights for the second quarter include:

Operating highlights for the second quarter include:

"We have a clear mission at PayPal. We want to democratize financial services and become an everyday, essential service for underserved consumers," said Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal. "We want to use our platform and services to enable merchants to fully capitalize on the move to mobile and digital commerce. Our strong financial performance is one sign of the tangible and consistent progress we've made towards achieving these goals. Our agreement with Visa enhances our capabilities, offers the potential to establish new contexts for our consumers and merchants, and lays the foundation for additional partnerships."

PayPal and Visa Enter Partnership to Extend Customer Choice

PayPal and Visa announced a strategic partnership to expand their long-standing relationship that will result in an improved and more seamless shopping experience and greater choice in how consumers pay. This agreement is a significant step towards offering greater customer choice and flexibility for PayPal's customers.

PayPal will also gain access to Visa's tokenization services, starting in the United States, for in-store PayPal transactions. This will expand acceptance for PayPal's digital wallet to all physical retail locations where Visa contactless transactions are enabled. The partnership's benefits will include greater accessibility and volumes for Visa payment instruments in the PayPal digital wallet.

PayPal also will ensure that data provided to issuers and their cardholders for Visa-funded transactions will be consistent with the information that each receives with a traditional Visa card transaction, providing greater transparency and enhancing payment system security.

The agreement affords PayPal certain economic incentives, including incentives for increased Visa volume, and greater long-term certainty on fees paid to Visa, and further removes the threat of any fees or Visa network rules being targeted solely at PayPal.

Gaining Market Share and New Merchant Customers

In the second quarter, PayPal gained market share and extended its leadership position. PayPal processed $86 billion in TPV, representing FX-neutral growth of 29%, which was substantially faster than the growth rate of e-commerce. Merchant services TPV grew 36% on an FX-neutral basis, and represented 83% of overall TPV for the quarter. PayPal processed $24 billion in mobile payment volume, up 56%, representing 28% of TPV for the quarter. Venmo, the company's social payments platform, processed $3.9 billion of TPV, up 141%.

PayPal added notable new merchants to the platform, ending the quarter with 14.5 million active merchant accounts. The list of leading brands choosing PayPal now includes IKEA in multiple countries, Carnival Corporation, VKontakte, Talbot's, Cathay Pacific and Eventbrite.

Extending PayPal's Customer Base and Deepening Engagement

As PayPal continues to grow larger and more relevant in customers' daily lives, the company demonstrated another strong quarter of customer acquisition, adding new consumers and merchants to the platform. The company grew its active account base by 11% in the second quarter, ending the quarter with 188 million active customer accounts.

Customers are engaged at higher levels than ever before. In the second quarter, the company processed 1.4 billion payment transactions, which translates to 29 payment transactions per active account, an increase from 26 transactions per active account in the same period last year.

Expanding Innovative Products

One Touch is the most rapidly adopted product in PayPal's history. As of the end of the second quarter, more than 25 million consumer accounts have opted in to One Touch and more than two million merchants accounts have enabled the product.

PayPal also extended the Pay with Venmo pilot in the quarter to additional merchants including Parking Panda, Priv, Wish, Boxed, Hop Market and Poshmark. PayPal expects to expand the Venmo pilot to all of its Venmo users, and substantially more merchants later this year.

PayPal Working Capital continues to be an important product to engage merchants and support their growth. In the second quarter, PayPal Working Capital exceeded $2 billion in originations since the product launched in September 2013 and has now funded more than 90,000 small business merchants in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.

Broadening PayPal's Global Reach

Xoom's U.S. customers can now send money to 53 countries. Xoom continues to redefine global remittances through mobile technology, with 74% of transactions being made on a mobile device in the second quarter.

In the second quarter, PayPal also expanded the European rollout of the Vodafone wallet. Consumers in Spain and Italy can now tap and pay in stores, another example of how PayPal is committed to partnership and delivering consumer choice.

Presentation

All growth rates represent year-over-year comparisons, except as otherwise noted. FX-neutral results are calculated by translating the current period's local currency results by 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. All amounts in tables are presented in U.S. dollars, rounded to the nearest millions, except as otherwise noted. As a result, certain amounts may not sum or recalculate using the rounded dollar amounts provided.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as "non-GAAP financial measures" by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC): non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and free cash flow. In addition, the company has included certain pro forma adjustments in its presentation of prior year non-GAAP net revenues, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, and non-GAAP operating margin in this presentation (collectively referred to as "non-GAAP pro forma measures"). These adjustments reflect items that are factually supportable, directly attributable to the separation of the company from eBay Inc. on July 17, 2015, and expected to have a continuing impact on the company's results of operations. The company has included these pro forma adjustments because management believes that they help to facilitate comparisons of the company's operating results between periods. In discussing year-over-year comparisons, including guidance net revenues growth rates, the company has chosen to present non-GAAP pro forma measures because it believes that these measures provide investors a consistent basis for reviewing the company's performance across different periods. For an explanation of the foregoing non-GAAP measures, please see "Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance" included in this press release. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

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 earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate and free cash flow. In addition, the company has included certain pro forma adjustments in its prior year presentation of non-GAAP net revenues, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, and non-GAAP operating margin in this presentation (collectively referred to as "non-GAAP pro forma measures"). These adjustments reflect items that are factually supportable, directly attributable to the separation of the company from eBay Inc. on July 17, 2015, and expected to have a continuing impact on the company's results of operations. The company has included these pro forma adjustments because management believes that they help to facilitate comparisons of the company's operating results between periods. In discussing year-over-year comparisons, the company has chosen to present non-GAAP pro forma measures because it believes that these measures provide investors a consistent basis for reviewing the company's performance across different periods.

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, significant gains or losses from the disposal/acquisition of a business, certain effects of the separation from eBay, certain gains and losses on investments, restructuring-related charges 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 earnings per diluted share, 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 that management does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. 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 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.

Other certain significant gains, losses, or charges that are not indicative of the Company's core operating results. These expenses are significant gains, losses, 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 or be repeated in the future. The company excludes these amounts from its results primarily because management does not believe they are indicative of its current or ongoing operating results.

Separation. These are significant expenses related to the separation of PayPal from eBay Inc. into an independent publicly traded company. These consist primarily of third-party consulting fees, legal fees, employee retention payments and other income and expenses incurred to complete the separation.

Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is used 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 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 by 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.

(h) Reflects the effect of the Protection program losses and service costs that were historically reimbursed to PayPal by eBay for the administration of eBay's customer protection programs. Following the distribution, this program is no longer being administered by PayPal, and therefore these costs will not be reimbursed by eBay. PayPal's customer protection programs have been extended to its customers' purchases on eBay, and therefore PayPal expects to incur incremental costs associated with its customer protection programs.

(i) Reflects the impact of additional costs for shared data centers and information technology facilities, except for the facilities in Phoenix, Arizona, and Denver, Colorado, that will continue to be managed by eBay after the separation pursuant to the colocation services agreements.
