Bruce Lowthers, Paysafe CEO, said: “Paysafe has continued to build momentum through the third quarter led by double-digit growth from our e-commerce solutions and classic digital wallets.

“Overall, our third quarter results reflect 8% year-over-year revenue growth, 22% Adjusted EBITDA growth and accelerated leverage reduction.

“These results reaffirm that the execution of our playbook is working and providing the foundation for us to deliver on our strategic initiatives and commitment to achieving our mid-term growth targets.”

As for business highlights, this quarter saw Paysafe partner with Fanatics Betting and Gaming to provide it with a range of payment methods.

Lowthers continued: “I want to thank our extraordinary team for all their hard work as we continue to realign Paysafe in its pursuit of operational excellence.”

In addition, the Board of Directors announced a new scheme this quarter, in the form of a $50m share repurchase programme.

Alex Gersh, Paysafe CFO, said: “This buyback program reinforces the Board’s and management’s confidence in Paysafe.

“With our healthy cash flow generation and consistent progress towards reducing our net leverage ratio over the last several quarters, we believe now is the appropriate time to include share repurchases as part of our capital allocation strategy.

“We continue to expect the majority of our excess cash flow to be committed to de-leveraging, while we also continue to invest in innovation to drive long-term growth.”
