The company was also appointed as an exclusive partner of Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS) offering merchant-acquiring solutions to the telco giant's business customers.

Management has been active on cost management as well, by reducing headcount and increasing its merchant service fee in H2 FY22.

Management commentary

Speaking on the results sending Tyro shares skywards today, CEO and managing director Robbie Cooke said:

Despite the challenges of 2022 with Covid, tight labour markets, market de-ratings of payment companies and inflationary pressures – we responded strongly with focused cost management, tight margin management, and a continuing focus on serving our customers while delivering new products and services to our merchants.

These actions started to positively contribute in the last quarter of the year and remain a key focus in FY23. They are expected to yield further operating leverage improvements in parallel with our continuing focus on driving strong top line growth and new merchant acquisition.

What's next for Tyro?

The company says it has made a strong start to FY23 already. While transaction values for July lifted 46% year on year to $3.4 billion, August values are also up 70% from FY22 to $2.9 billion.

Tyro forecasts transaction value between $40m billion and $42 billion, stemming normalised gross profit of between $175 million and $185 million.

It is also aiming to be free cash flow positive "on exiting FY23".
