What else happened in the quarter?
In Australia, Openpay said its targeted approach and improved productivity supported its ambition to make a profit in the next 12 to 18 months.
Openpay launched its US-branded OpyPay product in the United States in the second quarter of FY22. Since the launch, the company has signed dental, veterinary, and automotive merchants in eight US states.
Also in the quarter, the company launched a US$271 million debt facility from Goldman Sachs and Atalaya. Opy also partnered with American Express, Worldpay from FIS, and Experian.
In the UK, the company formed a strategic partnership and revenue sharing agreement with Payment Assist.
What did management say?
Commenting on the results, non-executive chairman Patrick Tuttle said:
In Q2 FY22, Openpay delivered record TTV and very strong operating and financial results in a competitive market whilst keeping costs down and implementing additional efficiency measures to continue this trend.
In ANZ, we delivered record operating performance as we manage the business to profitability, and in the US, Opy now has all the building blocks in place to monetise this significant opportunity.
Openpay plans to prioritise growth in the US with its key partners in North America. The company says it has also secured a confidential agreement with a large US healthcare insurance provider to begin in the next quarter.
In the UK, the company has “made a strategic decision to change direction’ and will update the market “as appropriate”.
The company also plans to expedite its road to profit in Australia. As Motley Fool Australia reported earlier this month, Openpay has also announced some recent leadership changes.
