NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

 

1.     BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

 

The foregoing unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements furnished herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim period presented.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the financial statements are published, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumptions are inherent in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements; accordingly, it is possible that the actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions that could have a material effect on the reported amounts of the Company’s financial position and results of operations.

 

Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023.

 

About Paysign, Inc.

 

Paysign, Inc. (the “Company,” “Paysign,” “we” or “our”) was incorporated on August 24, 1995, and trades under the symbol PAYS on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC. Paysign is a provider of prepaid card programs, comprehensive patient affordability offerings, digital banking services and integrated payment processing designed for businesses, consumers and government institutions. Headquartered in Nevada, the company creates customized, innovative payment solutions for clients across all industries, including pharmaceutical, healthcare, hospitality and retail.

 

Principles of Consolidation – The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Use of Estimates – The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, (ii) the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and (iii) the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents – The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents for the purposes of the statement of cash flows. The Company had no cash equivalents at September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

 

 

 

 7 

 

 

Restricted Cash – At September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, restricted cash consisted of funds held specifically for our card product and pharma programs that are contractually restricted to use. The Company includes changes in restricted cash balances with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning and ending total amounts in our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk – Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash. The Company maintains its cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash in various bank accounts primarily with one financial institution in the United States which at times, may exceed federally insured limits. If this financial institution were to be placed into receivership, we may be unable to access the cash we have on deposit. If we are unable to access our cash and cash equivalents as needed, our financial position and ability to operate our business could be adversely affected. The Company has not experienced, nor does it anticipate, any losses with respect to such accounts. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company had approximately $40,208,706 and $43,516,155 in excess of federally insured bank account limits, respectively.

 

As of September 30, 2023, the Company also has a concentration of accounts receivable risk, as two pharma program customers associated with our pharma patient affordability programs each individually represent 20% and 19% of our accounts receivable balance. Two pharma program customers each individually represented 35% and 24% of our accounts receivable balance on December 31, 2022.

 

Fixed Assets – Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is principally recorded using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset, which is generally 3 to 10 years. The cost of repairs and maintenance is charged to expense as incurred. Leasehold improvements are capitalized and depreciated over the shorter of the remaining lease term or the estimated useful life of the improvements. Expenditures for property betterments and renewals are capitalized. Upon sale or other disposition of a depreciable asset, cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in other income (expense).

 

The Company periodically evaluates whether events and circumstances have occurred that may warrant revision of the estimated useful life of fixed assets or whether the remaining balance of fixed assets should be evaluated for possible impairment. The Company uses an estimate of the related undiscounted cash flows over the remaining life of the fixed assets in measuring their recoverability.

 

Intangible Assets – For intangible assets, the Company recognizes an impairment loss if the carrying amount of the intangible asset is not recoverable and exceeds its fair value. The carrying amount of the intangible asset is considered not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset.

 

Intangible assets with a finite life are amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life, which is generally 3 to 15 years.

 

Internally Developed Software Costs - Computer software development costs are expensed as incurred, except for internal use software or website development costs that qualify for capitalization as described below, and include compensation and related expenses, costs of hardware and software, and costs incurred in developing features and functionality.

 

For computer software developed or obtained for internal use, costs that are incurred in the preliminary project and post implementation stages of software development are expensed as incurred. Costs incurred during the application and development stage are capitalized. Capitalized costs are amortized using the straight-line method over a three year estimated useful life, beginning in the period in which the software is available for use.

 

Contract Assets - Incremental costs to obtain or fulfill a contract with a customer are capitalized. The Company determines the costs that are incremental by confirming the costs (i) are directly related to a customer’s contract, (ii) generate or enhance resources to fulfill contract performance obligations in the future, and (iii) are recoverable. Amortization is on a straight-line basis generally over three to five years, beginning when goods and services are transferred to the customer or group of customers.

 

 

 

 8 

 

 

Hosting Implementation  Costs to implement the cloud computing arrangements (the “hosting site”) are accounted for by following the same model as internally developed software costs. Costs that are incurred in the preliminary project and post implementation stages of hosting development are expensed when they are incurred. Costs incurred during the application and development stage are capitalized. Capitalized costs are amortized using the straight-line method over a three year estimated useful life, beginning in the period when the hosting site is available for use.

 

Customer Card Funding – As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, customer card funding represents funds loaded or available to be loaded on cards for the Company’s card product programs.

 

Earnings Per Share – Basic earnings per share exclude any dilutive effects of options, warrants and convertible securities. Basic earnings per share is computed using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the applicable period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted-average number of common and common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. Common stock equivalent shares are excluded from the computation if their effect on the diluted earnings per share calculation is anti-dilutive.

 

Revenue and Expense Recognition – In determining when and how revenue is recognized from contracts with customers, the Company performs the following five-step analysis: (i) identification of contracts with customers, (ii) determination of performance obligations, (iii) measurement of the transaction price, (iv) allocation of the transaction price to the performance obligations, and (v) recognition of revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

The Company generates revenues from plasma card programs through fees generated from cardholder fees and interchange fees. Revenues from pharma card programs are generated through card program management fees, transaction claims processing fees, interchange fees, and settlement income.

 

Plasma and pharma card program revenues include both fixed and variable components. Cardholder fees represent an obligation to the cardholder based on a per transaction basis and are recognized at a point in time when the performance obligation is fulfilled. Card program management fees and transaction claims processing fees include an obligation to our card program sponsors and are generally recognized when earned on a monthly basis and are typically due within 30 days pursuant to the contract terms which are generally multi-year contracts. The Company uses the output method to recognize card program management fee revenue at the amount of consideration to which an entity has a right to invoice. The performance obligation is satisfied when the services are transferred to the customer which the Company determined to be monthly, as the customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefit from the Company’s performance. Interchange fees are earned when customer-issued cards are processed through card payment networks as the nature of our promise to the customer is that we stand ready to process transactions at the customer’s requests on a daily basis over the contract term. Since the timing and quantity of transactions to be processed by us are not determinable, we view interchange fees to comprise an obligation to stand ready to process as many transactions as the customer requests. Accordingly, the promise to stand ready is accounted for as a single series performance obligation. The Company uses the right to invoice practical expedient and recognizes interchange fee revenue concurrent with the processing of card transactions. Interchange fees are settled in accordance with the card payment network terms and conditions, which is typically within a few days.

 

The Company utilizes the remote method of revenue recognition for settlement income whereby the unspent balances will be recognized as revenue at the expiration of the cards and the respective program. This has historically been associated with the pharma prepaid business which ended in 2022. The Company records all revenue on a gross basis since it is the primary obligor and establishes the price in the contract arrangement with its customers. The Company is currently under no obligation to refund any fees, and the Company does not currently have any obligations for disputed claim settlements. Given the nature of the Company’s services and contracts, generally it has no contract assets.

 

Cost of revenues is comprised of transaction processing fees, data connectivity and data center expenses, network fees, bank fees, card production and postage costs, customer service, program management, application integration setup, and sales and commission expense.

Operating Leases – The Company determines if a contract is or contains a leasing element at contract inception or the date in which a modification of an existing contract occurs. In order for a contract to be considered a lease, the contract must transfer the right to control the use of an identified asset for a period of time in exchange for consideration. Control is determined to have occurred if the lessee has the right to (i) obtain substantially all of the economic benefits from the use of the identified asset throughout the period of use and (ii) direct the use of the identified asset.

  

In determining the present value of lease payments at lease commencement date, the Company utilizes its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available, unless the rate implicit in the lease is readily determinable. The liability for operating leases is based on the present value of future lease payments. Operating lease expenses are recorded as rent expense, which is included within selling, general and administrative expenses within the consolidated statements of operations and presented as operating cash outflows within the consolidated statements of cash flows.

 

Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet, with lease expenses for these leases recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Stock-Based Compensation – The Company recognizes compensation expense for all restricted stock awards and stock options. The fair value of restricted stock awards is measured using the grant date trading price of our stock. The fair value of stock options is estimated at the grant date using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, and the portion that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as compensation cost over the requisite service period. We have elected to recognize compensation expense for all options with graded vesting on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the entire option. The determination of fair value using the Black-Scholes option pricing model is affected by our stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables, including expected stock price volatility and the risk-free interest rate.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements – In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments–Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which provides updated guidance on how an entity should measure credit losses on all financial instruments carried at amortized cost (including loans held for investment and held-to-maturity debt securities, as well as trade receivables, reinsurance recoverables, and receivables that relate to repurchase agreements and securities lending agreements), a lessor’s net investments in leases, and off-balance sheet credit exposures not accounted for as insurance or as derivatives, including loan commitments, standby letters of credit, and financial guarantees. Subsequently, in November 2018 the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments–Credit Losses, which clarified that receivables arising from operating leases are not within the scope of Subtopic 326-20, but instead should be accounted for in accordance with Topic 842, Leases. In March 2022 the FASB issued ASU No. 2022-02, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses: Troubled Debt Restructurings and Vintage Disclosures which clarified accounting treatment required for trouble debt restructurings by creditors and enhanced disclosures for write-offs. The new standard and related amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We adopted this guidance; however, there was no material impact of this adoption on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

4.     LEASE

 

The Company entered into an operating lease for office space which became effective in June 2020. The lease term is 10 years from the effective date and allows for two optional extensions of five years each. The two optional extensions are not recognized as part of the right-of-use asset or lease liability since it is not reasonably certain that the Company will extend this lease.

5.     CUSTOMER CARD FUNDING LIABILITY

 

The Company issues prepaid cards with various provisions for cardholder fees or expiration. Revenue generated from cardholder transactions and interchange fees are recognized when the Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled. Unspent balances left on pharma cards are recognized as settlement income at the expiration of the cards and the program. Contract liabilities related to prepaid cards represent funds on card and client funds held to be loaded to card before the amounts are ultimately spent by the cardholders or recognized as revenue by the Company. Contract liabilities related to prepaid cards are reported as Customer card funding liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

The opening and closing balances of the Company's contract liabilities are as follows:

          
  

Nine Months Ended

September 30,

 
   2023   2022

8.     COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.

 

The Company has been named as a defendant in three complaints filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada: Yilan Shi v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on March 19, 2020 (“Shi”), Lorna Chase v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on March 25, 2020 (“Chase”), and Smith & Duvall v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on April 2, 2020 (collectively, the “Complaints” or “Securities Class Action”). Smith & Duvall v. Paysign, Inc. et. al. was voluntarily dismissed on May 21, 2020. On May 18, 2020, the Shi plaintiffs and another entity called the Paysign Investor Group each filed a motion to consolidate the remaining Shi and Chase actions and to be appointed lead plaintiff. The Complaints are putative class actions filed on behalf of a class of persons who acquired the Company’s common stock from March 19, 2019 through March 31, 2020, inclusive. The Complaints generally allege that the Company, Mark R. Newcomer, and Mark Attinger violated Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act, and that Messrs. Newcomer and Attinger violated Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act, by making materially false or misleading statements, or failing to disclose material facts, regarding the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and its financial statements. The Complaints seek class action certification, compensatory damages, and attorney’s fees and costs. On December 2, 2020, the Court consolidated Shi and Chase as In re Paysign, Inc. Securities Litigation and appointed the Paysign Investor Group as lead plaintiff. On January 12, 2021, Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint in the consolidated action. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the Amended Complaint on March 15, 2021, which Plaintiffs opposed via an opposition brief filed on April 29, 2021, to which Defendants replied on June 1, 2021. On February 9, 2023, the Court granted in part and denied in part Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

The Company has also been named as a nominal defendant in two stockholder derivative actions in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada. The first derivative action is entitled Andrzej Toczek, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark R. Newcomer, et al. and was filed on September 17, 2020. This action alleges violations of Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, and waste, largely in connection with the failure to correct information technology controls over financial reporting alleged in the Securities Class Action, thereby causing the Company to face exposure in the Securities Class Action. The complaint also alleges insider trading violations against certain individual defendants. On December 16, 2020, the Court approved a stipulation staying the action until the Court in the consolidated Securities Class Action issues a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss. The second derivative action is entitled John K. Gray, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark Attinger, et al. and was filed on May 9, 2022. This action involves the same alleged conduct raised in the Toczek action and asserts claims for breach of fiduciary duty in connection with financial reporting, breach of fiduciary duty in connection with alleged insider trading against certain individual defendants, and unjust enrichment. On June 3, 2022, the Court approved a stipulation staying the action until the Court in the consolidated Securities Class Action issues a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss. On May 10, 2023, the Toczek and Gray actions were consolidated. The Company anticipates filing motions to dismiss given the ruling on the Motion to Dismiss in the consolidated cases. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

 

The Company has also been named as a nominal defendant in a stockholder derivative action in state court in Clark County, Nevada, filed on October 2, 2023, entitled Simone Blanchette, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark Newcomer, et al. That complaint makes substantially the same allegations as made in the consolidated Toczek and Gray actions discussed above, and also contains a claim that the individual defendants violated Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. On that basis, on October 10, 2023, the defendants filed a Notice of Removal of the case to federal court. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

 

9.     RELATED PARTY

 

A former member of our Board of Directors who served through December 31, 2022 is also a partner in a law firm that the Company engages for services to review regulatory filings and for various other legal matters. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company incurred legal expenses of $27,561 and $109,314, respectively, with the related party law firm.

 

10.   INCOME TAX

 

The effective tax rate (income tax provision as a percentage of income before income tax provision) was 8.7% for the three months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to 4.1% for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The effective tax rate was 16.5% and 17.1% for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The effective tax rates vary, primarily as a result of the full valuation on our deferred tax assets in both the current and prior period and the tax benefit related to our stock-based compensation. As of September 30, 2023, management believes that it is more-likely-than-not that the Company’s net deferred tax assets would not be realized in the near future and the Company would continue to record a full valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets.

 

Under the provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) signed into law in 2020 and the subsequent extension of the CARES Act through September 30, 2021, the Company was eligible for a refundable employee retention credit subject to certain criteria. The Company has elected an accounting policy to recognize the government assistance when it is probable that the Company is eligible to receive the assistance and present the credit as a reduction of the related expense. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company recorded $836,734 and $1,296,488, respectively in other receivables on the condensed consolidated balance sheet related to U.S. Federal Government refunds.

 

11.   SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company discloses subsequent events that provide evidence about conditions that did not change the consolidated financial statements at the balance sheet date but have a significant effect on the financial statements at the time of occurrence or on future operations of the company.

 

On September 30, 2023, the Company had uninsured deposits at our financial institution in the amount of $40,208,706. We have since initiated a program called deposit swapping with our financial institution, whereby the financial institution utilizes a third party who is participating in reciprocal deposit networks as an alternative way to offer us full Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance on deposits over $250,000. Under this program, deposit networks divide uninsured deposits into smaller units and distribute these monies among participating banks in the network, whereby the monies are fully FDIC insured.

 

We have evaluated subsequent events from the balance sheet date through November 8, 2023, the date at which the condensed financial statements were issued and determined that there were no additional items that require adjustment to or disclosure in the condensed financial statement.

Overview

 

Paysign, Inc. (the “Company,” “Paysign,” “we” or “our”), headquartered in Nevada, was incorporated on August 24, 1995, and trades under the symbol PAYS on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC. We are a vertically integrated provider of prepaid card products and processing services for corporate, consumer and government applications. Our payment solutions are utilized by our corporate customers as a means to increase customer loyalty, increase patient adherence rates, reduce administration costs and streamline operations. Public sector organizations can utilize our payment solutions to disburse public benefits or for internal payments. We market our prepaid card solutions under our Paysign® brand. As we are a payment processor and prepaid card program manager, we derive our revenue from all stages of the prepaid card lifecycle.

 

We operate on a powerful, high-availability payments platform with cutting-edge fintech capabilities that can be seamlessly integrated with our clients’ systems. This distinctive positioning allows us to provide end-to-end technologies that securely manage transaction processing, cardholder enrollment, value loading, account management, data and analytics, and customer service. Our architecture is known for its cross-platform compatibility, flexibility, and scalability – allowing our clients and partners to leverage these advantages for cost savings and revenue opportunities.

 

Our suite of product offerings includes solutions for corporate rewards, prepaid gift cards, general purpose reloadable debit cards, employee incentives, consumer rebates, donor compensation, clinical trials, healthcare reimbursement payments and pharmaceutical payment assistance, and demand deposit accounts accessible with a debit card. In the future, we expect to further expand our product into other prepaid card offerings such as travel cards and expense reimbursement cards. Our cards are sponsored by our issuing bank partners.

 

Our revenues include fees generated from cardholder fees, interchange, card program management fees, transaction claims processing fees, and settlement income. Revenue from cardholder fees, interchange, card program management fees, and transaction claims processing fees is recorded when the performance obligation is fulfilled. Settlement income is recorded at the expiration of the card program and relates solely to our pharma prepaid business which ended in 2022.

We have two categories for our prepaid debit cards: (1) corporate and consumer reloadable cards, and (2) non-reloadable cards.

 

Reloadable Cards: These types of cards are generally classified as payroll or considered general purpose reloadable (“GPR”) cards. Payroll cards are issued by an employer to an employee in order to allow the employee to access payroll amounts that are deposited into an account linked to their card. GPR cards can also be issued to a consumer at a retail location or mailed to a consumer after completing an on-line application. GPR cards can be reloaded multiple times with a consumer’s payroll, government benefit, a federal or state tax refund or through cash reload networks located at retail locations. Reloadable cards are generally open-loop cards as described below.

 

Non-Reloadable Cards: These are generally one-time use cards that are only active until the funds initially loaded to the card are spent. These types of cards are generally used as gift or incentive cards. Normally these types of cards are used for the purchase of goods or services at retail locations and cannot be used to receive cash.

 

Both reloadable and non-reloadable cards may be open-loop, closed-loop, or restricted-loop. Open-loop cards can be used to receive cash at ATM locations by PIN; or purchase goods or services by PIN or signature at retail locations virtually anywhere that the network brand (American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, etc.) is accepted. Closed-loop cards can only be used at a specific merchant. Restricted-loop cards can be used at several merchants, or a defined group of merchants, such as all merchants at a specific shopping mall.

 

The prepaid card market in the U.S. has experienced significant growth in recent years due to consumers and merchants embracing improved technology, greater convenience, more product choices and greater flexibility. Prepaid cards have also proven to be an attractive alternative to traditional bank accounts for certain segments of the population, particularly those without, or who could not qualify for, a checking or savings account.

 

We manage all aspects of the prepaid card lifecycle, from managing the card design and approval processes with partners and networks, to production, packaging, distribution, and personalization. We also oversee inventory and security controls, renewals, lost and stolen card management, and replacement. We deploy a 24/7/365 fully staffed, in-house customer service department which utilizes bilingual customer service representatives, Interactive Voice Response, and two-way short message service messaging and text alerts.

 

Currently, we are focusing our marketing efforts on corporate incentive and expense prepaid card products in various market verticals including but not limited to general corporate expense, healthcare related markets including patient affordability solutions, clinical trials and donor compensation, loyalty rewards, and incentive cards.

 

As part of our continuing platform expansion process, we evaluate current and emerging technologies for applicability to our existing and future software platform. To this end, we engage with various hardware and software vendors in evaluation of various infrastructure components. Where appropriate, we use third-party technology components in the development of our software applications and service offerings. Third-party software may be used for highly specialized business functions, which we may not be able to develop internally within time and budget constraints. Our principal target markets for processing services include prepaid card issuers, retail and private-label issuers, small third-party processors, and small and mid-size financial institutions in the United States and Mexico.

 

We have devoted more extensive resources to sales and marketing activities as we have added essential personnel to our marketing, sales and support teams. We market our Paysign payment solutions through direct marketing by the Company’s sales team. Our primary market focus is on companies that require a streamlined payment solution for rewards, rebates, payment assistance, and other payments to their customers, employees, agents and others. To reach these markets, we focus our sales efforts on direct contact with our target market and attendance at various industry specific conferences. We may, at times, utilize independent contractors who make direct sales and are paid commissions and/or restricted stock awards. We market our Paysign Premier product through existing communication channels to a targeted segment of our existing cardholders, as well as to a broad group of individuals, ranging from non-banked to fully banked consumers with a focus on long term users of our product.

 

 

 

 16 

 

 

For the remainder of 2023, we plan to continue to invest additional funds in technology improvements, sales and marketing, customer service, and regulatory compliance. From time to time, we evaluate raising capital to enable us to diversify into new market verticals. If we do not raise new capital, we believe that we will still be able to support our existing business and expand into new vertical markets using internally generated funds.

The increase in total revenues of $1,803,897 for the three months ended September 30, 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year consisted primarily of a $1,231,901 increase in Plasma revenue, a $332,917 increase in Pharma revenue, and a $239,079 increase in Other revenue. The increase in Plasma revenue was primarily due to an increase in the number of plasma centers and donations, and, consequently, dollars loaded to cards, cardholder fees, and interchange, as there continues to be an increase in demand for plasma driven by global increases of plasma protein therapies. The increase in Pharma revenue was primarily due to the launch of new pharma patient affordability programs. The increase in Other revenue was primarily due to the growth of our payroll program and launch of new retail and other prepaid card disbursement programs.

Cost of revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2023 increased $1,220,427 compared to the same period in the prior year. Cost of revenues is comprised of transaction processing fees, data connectivity and data center expenses, network fees, bank fees, card production and postage costs, customer service, program management, application integration setup, and sales and commission expense. Cost of revenues increased during the third quarter of 2023 primarily due to an increase in cardholder usage activity and associated network expenses such as interchange and ATM costs, an increase in plastics and collateral related to an increase in the number of unique card loads, an increase in network expenses and sales commissions related to the growth in our pharma patient affordability business, and an increase in customer service expenses associated with wage inflation pressures and the overall growth in our business, offset by a decline in postage.

 

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2023 increased $583,470 compared to the same period in the prior year resulting primarily from the increase in Plasma revenue and the beneficial impact of a variable cost structure as many of the plasma transaction costs are variable in nature which are provided by third parties who charge us based on the number of active cards outstanding and the number of transactions that occurred during the period. Gross profit also benefited from the growth in our pharma patient affordability business. The increase in gross profit was offset by the termination of our pharma prepaid business in 2022, price increases by many of our third party service providers, and an increase in customer service expenses mentioned above. The decrease in gross margin resulted from the aforementioned factors.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) for the three months ended September 30, 2023 increased $309,752 compared to the same period in the prior year and consisted primarily of an increase in compensation and benefits of approximately $385,000 due to continued hiring to support the Company’s growth, a tight labor market and increased benefit costs, an increase in stock based compensation expense of approximately $144,000, an increase in technologies and telecom of approximately $79,000, an increase in non-IT professional services of approximately $54,000, and an increase in travel and entertainment of approximately $42,000. This increase was offset by a $391,000 increase in the amount of capitalized platform development costs and a decrease in all other operating expenses of approximately $4,000.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense for the three months ended September 30, 2023 increased $306,294 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was primarily due to continued capitalization of new software development costs and equipment purchases related to the continued enhancements to our processing platform.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded income from operations of $590,432 representing a decline of $32,576 compared to income from operations of $623,008 during the same period last year related to the aforementioned factors.

 

Other income for the three months ended September 30, 2023, increased $350,040 primarily related to an increase in interest rates and the associated interest income received on higher average bank account balances at our sponsor bank.

 

We recorded an income tax expense of $105,152 for the three months ended September 30, 2023, which equates to an effective tax rate of 8.7% primarily as a result of the full valuation on our deferred tax assets in both the current and prior period and the tax benefit related to our stock-based compensation. We recorded an income tax expense of $36,183 for the three months ended September 30, 2022, which equates to an effective tax rate of 4.1% primarily as a result of the full valuation on our deferred tax asset, the tax benefit related to our stock-based compensation expense and the pretax loss during the period.

 

The net income for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $1,100,604, an improvement of $248,495 compared to the net income of $852,109 for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The overall change in net income relates to the aforementioned factors.

The increase in total revenues of $6,168,823 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year consisted primarily of a $5,405,864 increase in Plasma revenue, a $71,836 increase in Pharma revenue and a $691,123 increase in Other revenue. The increase in Plasma revenue was primarily due to an increase in the number of plasma centers and donations, and, consequently, dollars loaded to cards, cardholder fees, and interchange, as COVID-19 restrictions such as donation center closures, mobility restrictions and Federal government stimulus measures were relaxed compared to the prior year period. The increase in Pharma revenue was due to the launch of new pharma patient affordability programs and growth of existing pharma patient affordability programs. The increase in Other revenue was primarily driven by the launch of new payroll, retail, and other prepaid card disbursement programs.

 

Cost of revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 increased $4,618,004 compared to the same period in the prior year. Cost of revenues is comprised of transaction processing fees, data connectivity and data center expenses, network fees, bank fees, card production and postage costs, customer service, program management, application integration setup, and sales and commission expense. Cost of revenues increased during the nine months of 2023 primarily due to the increase in cardholder usage activity and associated network expenses such as interchange and ATM costs, an increase in plastics, collateral and postage expenses related to new plasma donations and changes to collateral materials, the increase in network expenses related to our pharma patient affordability business, and the increase in customer service expenses associated with wage inflation pressures and the overall growth in our business, offset by a decline in sales commissions related to the restructuring of an agreement in the first quarter of 2022.

Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 increased $1,550,819 compared to the same period in the prior year resulting from the increase in Plasma revenue, the restructuring of an agreement mentioned above, and the beneficial impact of a variable cost structure as many of the plasma transaction costs are provided by third parties who charge us based on the number of transactions that occurred during the period. The increase in gross profit was offset by the termination of our pharma prepaid business in 2022, price increases by many of our third party service providers, a new direct network connection with Mastercard, and an increase in customer service expenses mentioned above. The decrease in gross margin resulted from the aforementioned factors.

 

SG&A for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 increased $1,662,939 compared to the same period in the prior year and consisted primarily of an increase in compensation and benefits of approximately $2,072,000 due to continued hiring to support the Company’s growth, a tight labor market and increased benefit costs, an increase in stock based compensation expense of approximately $534,000, an increase in technologies and telecom of approximately $206,000, and an increase in non-IT outside professional services of approximately $171,000. This increase was offset by an increase of approximately $1,247,000 in capitalized platform development costs, a decrease in all other operating expenses of approximately $20,000, and an increase in the reclass of customer care expenses of approximately $53,000 into cost of revenues.

 

Depreciation and amortization expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 increased $716,960 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in depreciation and amortization expense was primarily due to continued capitalization of development costs and equipment purchases related to the continued enhancements to our processing platform.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 we recorded a loss from operations of $799,251 representing a decrease of $829,080 compared to the same period last year related to the aforementioned factors.

 

Other income for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 increased $1,450,541 related to an increase in interest rates and the associated interest income received on higher average bank account balances at our sponsor bank.

 

We recorded an income tax expense of $164,819 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 which equates to an effective tax rate of 16.5% primarily as a result of the full valuation on our deferred tax assets in both the current and prior period and the tax benefit related to our stock-based compensation. We recorded an income tax expense of $64,996 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, which equates to an effective tax rate of 17.1% primarily as a result of the full valuation on our deferred tax asset, the tax benefit related to our stock-based compensation expense and the pretax loss during the period.

 

The net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $836,318, an improvement of $521,638 compared to the net income of $314,680 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The overall change in net income relates to the aforementioned factors.

 

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures

 

Management reviews a number of metrics to help us monitor the performance of and identify trends affecting our business. We believe the following measures are the primary indicators of our quarterly and annual revenues:

 

Gross Dollar Volume Loaded on Cards: Represents the total dollar volume of funds loaded to all of our prepaid card programs. Our gross dollar volume loaded on cards was $448 million and $462 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. We use this metric to analyze the total amount of money moving into our prepaid card programs.

 

 

 

 20 

 

 

Conversion Rates on Gross Dollar Volume Loaded on Cards: Equals revenues, gross profit or net income conversion rates of gross dollar volume loaded on cards which are calculated by taking our total revenues, gross profit or net income, respectively, as a numerator and dividing by the gross dollar volume loaded on cards as a denominator. As we derive a number of our financial results from cardholder fees, we utilize these metrics as an indication of the amount of money that is added to cards and will eventually be converted to revenues, gross profit and net income. Our total revenue conversion rates for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 were 2.77% or 277 basis points (“bps”), and 2.29% or 229 bps, respectively, of gross dollar volume loaded on cards. Our total gross profit conversion rates for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 were 1.41% or 141 bps, and 1.24% or 124 bps, respectively, of gross dollar volume loaded on cards. Our net income conversion rates for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 were 0.25% or 25 bps, and 0.18% or 18 bps, respectively, of gross dollar volume loaded on cards.

 

Management also reviews key performance indicators, such as revenues, gross profit, operational expenses as a percent of revenues, and cardholder participation. In addition, we consider certain non-GAAP (or “adjusted”) measures to be useful to management and investors evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented, and provide a financial tool for evaluating our ongoing operations, liquidity and management of assets. This information can assist investors in assessing our financial performance and measures our ability to generate capital for deployment and investment in new card programs. These adjusted metrics are consistent with how management views our business and are used to make financial, operating and planning decisions. These metrics, however, are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for revenue, operating income, net income (loss), earnings (loss) per share (basic and diluted) or net cash from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP. We consider the following non-GAAP measures, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, to be key performance indicators:

 

“EBITDA” is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense and “Adjusted EBITDA” reflects the adjustment to EBITDA to exclude stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the table below.

Comparison of Nine months Ended September 30, 2023 and 2022

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, we financed our operations through internally generated funds.

 

Cash provided by operating activities decreased $26,774,243 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, as compared to the same period in the prior year. The decrease is primarily due to changes in cash flows from operating assets and liabilities, particularly decreases in customer card funding of $29,942,096 related to the termination of our plasma prepaid business and timing of customer deposits for plasma and pharma patient affordability programs and an increase in accounts receivable of $1,958,062. These cash flow decreases were partially offset by cash flow increases of $486,629 primarily related to the collection of employee retention credits in the current year, increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $2,705,880, an improvement in net income from operations of $521,638, an increase in stock-based compensation of $534,426, and an increase in depreciation and amortization of $716,690. The changes in accounts receivable and accounts payable are primarily related to the growth in our pharma patient affordability business as we are invoiced by third party service providers at the end of the period and are due monies from our pharma patient affordability customers to cover these amounts due at the end of the period.

 

Cash used in investing activities increased $2,415,977 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 as compared to the same period in the prior year. The change between periods was primarily attributed to an increase in the capitalization of internally developed software as we continue to invest in our technology platform.

 

Cash used in financing activities increased $1,118,284 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 as compared to the same period in the prior year. The change between periods was primarily attributed to the repurchase of 394,558 shares of the company’s common stock at a weighted average price of $2.86 per share.

 

Our significant contractual cash requirements also include ongoing payments for lease liabilities. For additional information regarding our cash commitments and contractual obligations, see "Note 4 – LEASE” in the notes to the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

  

Sources of Liquidity

 

We believe that our available cash on hand, excluding restricted cash, at September 30, 2023 of $9,936,627, along with our forecast for revenues and cash flows for the remainder of 2023 and through the first quarter of 2025, will be sufficient to sustain our operations for the next eighteen months. In light of the recent bank failures, we continue to monitor the health and soundness of our bank relationships through publicly available information. Based on recent SEC filings, we have not discovered any issues that would cause us to alter our relationships.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Our estimates are based on our experience and our interpretation of economic, political, regulatory, and other factors that affect our business prospects. Actual results may differ significantly from our estimates.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

Because we are a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information called for by this Item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures means controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that the information we are required to disclose in the reports that we file or submit under the  Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in those reports is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our chief executive officer and chief financial officer evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of September 30, 2023. Based on that evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of September 30, 2023, the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

  

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.

 

The Company has been named as a defendant in three complaints filed in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada: Yilan Shi v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on March 19, 2020 (“Shi”), Lorna Chase v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on March 25, 2020 (“Chase”), and Smith & Duvall v. Paysign, Inc. et. al., filed on April 2, 2020 (collectively, the “Complaints” or “Securities Class Action”). Smith & Duvall v. Paysign, Inc. et. al. was voluntarily dismissed on May 21, 2020. On May 18, 2020, the Shi plaintiffs and another entity called the Paysign Investor Group each filed a motion to consolidate the remaining Shi and Chase actions and to be appointed lead plaintiff. The Complaints are putative class actions filed on behalf of a class of persons who acquired the Company’s common stock from March 19, 2019 through March 31, 2020, inclusive. The Complaints generally allege that the Company, Mark R. Newcomer, and Mark Attinger violated Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act, and that Messrs. Newcomer and Attinger violated Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act, by making materially false or misleading statements, or failing to disclose material facts, regarding the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and its financial statements. The Complaints seek class action certification, compensatory damages, and attorney’s fees and costs. On December 2, 2020, the Court consolidated Shi and Chase as In re Paysign, Inc. Securities Litigation and appointed the Paysign Investor Group as lead plaintiff. On January 12, 2021, Plaintiffs filed an Amended Complaint in the consolidated action. Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss the Amended Complaint on March 15, 2021, which Plaintiffs opposed via an opposition brief filed on April 29, 2021, to which Defendants replied on June 1, 2021. On February 9, 2023, the Court granted in part and denied in part Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

 

The Company has also been named as a nominal defendant in two stockholder derivative actions in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada. The first derivative action is entitled Andrzej Toczek, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark R. Newcomer, et al. and was filed on September 17, 2020. This action alleges violations of Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, and waste, largely in connection with the failure to correct information technology controls over financial reporting alleged in the Securities Class Action, thereby causing the Company to face exposure in the Securities Class Action. The complaint also alleges insider trading violations against certain individual defendants. On December 16, 2020, the Court approved a stipulation staying the action until the Court in the consolidated Securities Class Action issues a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss. The second derivative action is entitled John K. Gray, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark Attinger, et al. and was filed on May 9, 2022. This action involves the same alleged conduct raised in the Toczek action and asserts claims for breach of fiduciary duty in connection with financial reporting, breach of fiduciary duty in connection with alleged insider trading against certain individual defendants, and unjust enrichment. On June 3, 2022, the Court approved a stipulation staying the action until the Court in the consolidated Securities Class Action issues a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss. On May 10, 2023, the Toczek and Gray actions were consolidated. The Company anticipates filing motions to dismiss given the ruling on the Motion to Dismiss in the consolidated cases. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

 

The Company has also been named as a nominal defendant in a stockholder derivative action in state court in Clark County, Nevada, filed on October 2, 2023, entitled Simone Blanchette, derivatively on behalf of Paysign, Inc. v. Mark Newcomer, et al. That complaint makes substantially the same allegations as made in the consolidated Toczek and Gray actions discussed above, and also contains a claim that the individual defendants violated Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. On that basis, on October 10, 2023, the defendants filed a Notice of Removal of the case to federal court. As of the date of this filing, the Company cannot give any meaningful estimate of likely outcome or damages.

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Because we are a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information called for by this Item.

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, we issued, pursuant to an exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, a total of 540,000 shares of common stock for restricted stock awards previously earned and vested to certain directors, consultants and employees.

 

The following table sets forth certain information relating to the purchases of our common stock by us and any affiliated purchasers within the meaning of Rule 10b-18(a)(3) under the Exchange Act during the three months ended September 30, 2023.

 

Period  Total Number of Shares Purchased   Weighted Average Price Paid Per Share   Total Number of Shares Purchased as Part of Publicly Announced Plans or Programs (1)   Maximum Dollar Value of Shares that May Yet Be Purchased Under the Plans or Programs 
                 
July 1, 2023 - July 31, 2023      $       $4,022,333 
August 1, 2023 - August 31, 2023   75,000    2.00    75,000    3,872,116 
September 1, 2023 - September 30, 2023               3,872,116 
Total   75,000   $2.00    75,000   $3,872,116 

____________________

(1) On March 21, 2023, our board of directors authorized a stock repurchase program to repurchase up to $5 million of our common stock, subject to certain conditions, in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, or by other means in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the Exchange Act. The program is expected to be completed within 36 months from the commencement date.

 

Item 5. Other Information

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, no director or officer of the Company adopted or terminated a “Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement” or a “non-Rule 10b5-1 trading arrangement” (in each case, as defined in Item 408 of Regulation S-K).

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

1.     BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

 

The foregoing unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Regulation S-X as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements furnished herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim period presented.

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the financial statements are published, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumptions are inherent in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements; accordingly, it is possible that the actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions that could have a material effect on the reported amounts of the Company’s financial position and results of operations.

 

Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023.

Principles of Consolidation – The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Use of Estimates – The preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, (ii) the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and (iii) the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents – The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents for the purposes of the statement of cash flows. The Company had
