Pushpay has reported 39% revenue growth for FY21 (US$181.1m), which almost doubled the net profit (US$31.2m). EBITDAF came in at US$58.9m -- at the top end of their increased guidance for between US$56-60m.
The acquisition of Community Church Builder was a big part of this.
Once again, the operating margin increased, now sitting at 34% (up from 31%) as the business scales.
Operating cash flow saw a 145% improvement, allowing the company to fully repay the debt taken on to acquire Community Church Builder.
For the FY22 year, PushPay said it is expecting an EBITDAF of $US64-69m -- about 12% growth at the midpoint. That's partly subdued due to the US$6-8m investment into the Catholic segment.
That's perhaps a bit lower than the market would have liked, and I think there's also likely to be some concern over the sluggish pace of customer growth -- with customer numbers increasing just 2% (the growth is largely explained by increasing revenue per customer).
On a per share basis, and using a USD/AUD exchange of 78c, Pushpay reported an EPS of 3.62cps, which puts shares on a PE of ~41.
I still think that's relatively good value given they are expecting double digit growth, a strong balance sheet and cash flows and with upside potential into new segments.

Just a quick update to clarify and expand on a few points:
Did you know that Kogan is number 5 most most shorted stock on the ASX (shortman.com.au) increasing from 1.4% shorted in Jan 2021 to over 9% shorted now (See chart below).
Despite strong business growth (Revenue up 65% and Gross Profit up 54%), the market was not impressed by its inventory management prior Christmas and early this year which resulted in high storage and demurrage fees. This combined with inflated product costs prior to Christmas resulted in a 24% drop in adjusted EBITA.
Is this just growing pains for Kogan, or is it something more long term? I think it’s just growing pains and we could see a short squeeze when the next good news comes through.
Disc. Hold KGN and adding.
China's Tsingshan Holding has found a way of producing Nickel Matte from NPI (Nickel Pig Iron) that could be used to produce Nickel Sulphate and have signed a few supply deals with EV manufacturers in China. This has sent the prices of Nickel and Nickel Sulphate diving.
This development is a potential gamechanger in Nickel Sulphate supply but it is at the expense of increased carbon emissions. Delivery of Nickel Matte from Tsingshan expected to flood the market in October 2021.
Despite these points, shares in most nickel sulphate producers and explorers dived including IGO (with exception of AOU which suddenly rallied at the end of the day - they have a history of going overboard on their ASX announcements to move their stock!).
However I believe NIC is talking up on this development as they are large producer of NPI.
Good to see the chairman of PYG, Ian Basser take up his full Share Purchase plan entitlement of $30,000 at $0.56.
