Key Points

  • Tyro posted record transaction value growth, customer applications and loan originations in the first quarter of FY23
  • The company expects to post $28-34m in earnings for FY23, the midpoint is up 190% compared to FY22
  • Tyro shares are down around -50% year-to-date and -62% in the last 12 months

Tyro Payments' (ASX: TYR) first quarter update marked fresh records across the board as households continue to spend in the face of rapidly rising interest rates and inflation.

Transaction values for the September quarter rose 59% to $10.37bn compared to a year ago. There were 4,281 new customer applications for Tyro's services, up 17% and merchant loan originations more than doubled in the quarter to $32.7m.

"All our operating metrics are either in line with, or exceeding, expectations which, together with our new cost reduction program, gives us the confidence to lift guidance for FY23," commented CEO Jon Davey.

Tyro shares briefly rallied 3.7% as the market opened but currently down -4.0%.

$11m cost reduction program

Tyro has kicked off a cost reduction program aimed at reducing its previously guided operating cost base by $11m on an annualised basis.

The company expects to achieve approximately half those costs in FY23.

“This program is targeted at reducing costs in non-revenue generating parts of the business without impacting our customer experience or product delivery timeline. These are difficult but necessary decisions," said Davey.

Guidance on the rise

Tyro updated its earnings guidance for FY23, although key operating metrics including transaction value and gross profit were unchanged.

"Tyro Pro will offer a best-in-class experience for our merchants and, with a growing feature set, will help unlock the potential of in-store digital commerce," Davey said.
