Weird right, they work with Ebay given Paypal does too. This is because they work with countries and specific clients that Paypal not accept into their platform.

Valuation and Financials

Enterprise Value: $3.29 billion

Projected 2021 revenue: $432 million

EV/2021 revenue multiple: 7.6x

2019-2020 revenue growth: 8.8%

Institutional Ownership

Payoneer has some institutional giants already invested, including Wellington Management, Dragoneer Investment Group, Fidelity Management and Research, Temasek, and Franklin Templeton.

What do I think the future holds for Payoneer? I actually think there are several exits for this company.

  1. Growth: The company continues to grow and eventually reach billions of revenue
  2. Consolidation: Large international payments processer buys them. Could be Paypal, Square, Stripe, First Data, etc. consolidation WILL happen in this space and I think short-term Payoneer will acquire some companies and then be sold to a bigger company. Think of this as how banks in the USA were allowed to merge in 1995 given the law that passed.
