Management Commentary

“GreenBox continued to make excellent progress towards execution of its long-term growth strategy during the second quarter 2021. With the deployment of Coyni, a smart contract stablecoin technology, we launched a significant upgrade to our payment solutions capabilities for the second consecutive quarter,” said Fredi Nisan, Chief Executive Officer of GreenBox POS. “Our Generation 3 technology, launched in Q1 2021, continued to reap rewards as we processed a company record $440 million during the second quarter.

We continued to grow our core blockchain processing business organically while also making strategic acquisitions such as the purchase of Northeast Merchant Services, ChargeSavvy, and most recently, the pending purchase of Transact Europe. These acquisitions are part of our strategy to acquire crucial licensing assets and expand our footprint globally while simultaneously opening avenues for us to drive adoption of our Coin platform. Acquisitions will continue to play a vital role in our strategy to quickly become a large player in the financial payments space.

Looking ahead, we look to rapidly drive adoption of Coyni to generate value for our announced spinoff of that business. By continuing to expand our core blockchain business using our extensive ISO and agent network and through selective acquisitions, we believe we are well positioned to do so. In announcing a special dividend series based on the planned spin-off of our stablecoin platform asset, we demonstrate our commitment to rewarding our long-term shareholders. We are encouraged with our progress as we continue to strive towards disrupting the digital payments space globally and look forward to continuing to execute our long-term vision,” concluded Nisan.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

  • Revenues in the second quarter of 2021 were $6.4 million, an increase of 178% compared to revenues of $2.3 million in the same quarter a year ago. Sequentially, revenues increased by 36% when compared to $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily due to increased processing volume.
  • Gross profit in the second quarter of 2021 was $5.1 million, or 79.5% of total revenue, compared to gross profit of $0.9 million, or 38.4% of total revenue, in the same quarter a year ago. Sequentially, gross profit increased 59% from $3.2 million, or 66.4% of total revenue, in the first quarter of 2021. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to increase processing volume efficiency from Generation 3 technology
  • Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $5.1 million, compared to $1.1 million in the same quarter a year ago, and $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2021. The year over year increase was due primarily to an increase in stock compensation for services and employees as well as increases in research and development and payroll.

Net income in the first quarter of 2021 was ($13.3) million or ($0.38) per basic and diluted share.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This earnings release discusses Adjusted Net Income which is not a financial measure as defined by GAAP. This financial measure is presented as a supplemental measure of operating performance because we believe it can aid in, and enhance, the understanding of our financial results. In addition, we use Adjusted Net Income as a measure internally for budgeting purposes.

We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) before (1) interest expense (income), net, (2) income tax expense (benefit), (3) depreciation, (4) amortization of intangible assets, (5) stock-based compensation expense, plus (6) from time to time, certain other items which are specific transaction-related items. Other companies may define or calculate this measure differently, limiting the usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of this limitation, this non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as substitute for or superior to performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with the financial statement tables. See also Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) attributable to GreenBox POS, Inc., to Adjusted Net Income in the table below.*

All forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain as they are based on current expectations and assumptions concerning future events or future performance of the Company. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are only predictions and speak only as of the date hereof.
