Paysafe (NYSE:PSFE) stock isn’t doing so hot today as negative digital wallet news from its most recent earnings report hammers shares.
Included in the company’s Q3 earnings report is a breakdown of its revenue for the period. Overall, the company didn’t meet expectations with revenue coming in at $353.59 million. That misses Wall Street’s estimate of $370.63 million. That’s a roughly 1% decrease from the same time last year.
Looking deep into that news, digital wallet revenue for the quarter came in at $83.66 million. That’s a real blow to PSFE stock considering it represents a 15.1% decline compared to the $98.54 million reported in Q3 2020.
The poor revenue results for the third quarter of the year also have Paysafe revising its outlook for 2021. Among that is expectations for Q4 revenue to range from $355 million to $365 million. That would have it missing Wall Street’s estimate of $417.74 for the quarter.
Of course, Paysafe new guidance for 2021 isn’t helping out PSFE stock today, either. The company expects revenue for the year to come in between $14.7 billion and $1.48 billion. Yet again, this would have it failing to reach analysts’ 2021 revenue estimate of $1.55 billion.
Philip McHugh, CEO of Paysafe, said the following in the most recent earnings report.
“In the third quarter we reported Adjusted EBITDA in line with our expectations, despite softer than expected revenue, reflecting both market and performance challenges within the digital wallet business. While the recent trend will drive an adjusted financial outlook, we continue to see strong momentum across the business.”
PSFE stock is down 40% as of Thursday morning and is down 69.8% since the start of the year.
