The company expects to generate US$23-25 million in earnings before interest,tax, depreciation, amortisation, and FX movements (EBITDAF) compared to previous guidance of US$18.5-19.5 million.
Pushpay noted the EBITDAF upgrade is due to costs growing lower than expected after achieving efficiencies and also due to accounting impacts of IFRS 16, which refers to leases.
As per the company’s AGM commentary, revenue guidance has softened slightly to US$121-124 million from US$122.5-125.5 million.
Other guidance metrics for gross margin and total processing volume have been maintained.
Pushpay’s CEO Bruce Gordon said: “As previously indicated at our 2019 Annual Meeting, new customer acquisition over the start of the financial year was lower than the previous year.
“We have subsequently adjusted our operating revenue guidance range to reflect this.”
