Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements

1.    Nature of Business and Significant Accounting Policies
Business, Consolidation and Presentation
Priority Technology Holdings, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries are referred to herein collectively as "Priority," "PRTH," the "Company," "we," "our" or "us," unless the context requires otherwise. Priority is a provider of merchant acquiring, integrated payment software, licensed money transmission services and commercial payments solutions.
The Company operates on a calendar year ending each December 31 and on four calendar quarters ending on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31 of each year. Results of operations reported for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the entire year.
The accompanying Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority-owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP for interim financial information pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC. The Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2021 was derived from the audited financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP for annual financial statements.
In the opinion of the Company's management, all known adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements for interim periods have been made. These adjustments consist of normal recurring accruals and estimates that affect the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities. These Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. In particular, the continued magnitude, duration and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are difficult to predict, and the ultimate effect could result in future charges related to the recoverability of assets, including financial assets, long-lived assets, goodwill and other losses.
Foreign Currency
The Company's reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. Assets and liabilities denominated in a foreign currency are translated into U.S. dollars at the current exchange rate on the last day of the reporting period. Revenues and expenses are translated using the average exchange rate in effect during the reporting period. Foreign exchange translation and transaction gains and losses were not material for the periods presented and are included in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Comparability of Reporting Periods
Certain prior period amounts in these Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation, with no net effect on the Company's operating income, loss before income tax benefit, net loss or stockholders' deficit for any period presented.

Table of Contents
We reclassified certain cash flows related to settlement assets and customer account balances and the related obligations from net cash used in operating activities to net cash used in financing activities within the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These changes have no impact on our previously reported financial position or net increase in cash and cash equivalents.
The current period presentation classifies all changes in settlement and customer account balance obligations on our Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows as net cash provided by (used in) financing activities. The current period presentation provides a more meaningful representation of the cash flows related to the movement of settlement assets and customer account balances due to the restrictions on and use of those funds.

The following tables present the effects of the changes on the presentation of these cash flows to the previously reported Unaudited Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows:

Emerging Growth Company Status
Prior to December 31, 2021, the Company was an EGC, as defined in JOBS Act, and elected to take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies until the Company is no longer an EGC, including using the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards. On December 31, 2021, we ceased to qualify as an EGC and have adopted any new standards that we are now required to adopt.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Pending Adoption
Reference Rate Reform
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting, which provides temporary optional expedients and exceptions to the GAAP guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to ease the financial reporting burdens of the expected market transition from the LIBOR and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates, such as the Secured Overnight Financial Rate. If certain criteria are met, entities can elect not to apply certain modification accounting requirements to contracts affected by what the guidance calls reference rate reform. An entity that makes this election would not have to remeasure the contract at the modification date or reassess a previous accounting determination. In January 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), which clarifies that certain optional expedients and exceptions in Topic 848 for contract modifications and hedge accounting apply to derivatives that are affected by the discounting transition. These updates can be adopted at any time before December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact these updates may have on its Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements.
Credit Losses
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. This new guidance will change how entities account for credit impairment for trade and other receivables, as well as for certain financial assets and other instruments. ASU 2016-13 will replace the current "incurred loss" model with an "expected loss" model. Under the
7

Table of Contents
"incurred loss" model, a loss (or allowance) is recognized only when an event has occurred (such as a payment delinquency) that causes the entity to believe that a loss is probable (i.e., that it has been "incurred"). Under the "expected loss" model, a loss (or allowance) is recognized upon initial recognition of the asset that reflects all future events that leads to a loss being realized, regardless of whether it is probable that the future event will occur. The "incurred loss" model considers past events and current conditions, while the "expected loss" model includes expectations for the future which have yet to occur. The standard will require entities to record a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact that this update may have on the timing of recognizing future provisions for expected losses on the Company's accounts receivable and notes receivable. Since the Company is a smaller reporting company, the Company must adopt this new standard no later than the beginning of 2023 for annual and interim reporting periods.
Business Combinations
In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers, which requires entities to recognize and measure contract assets and liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with ASC 606, as if the acquirer had originated the contracts. Generally this will result in the acquirer recognizing and measuring the acquired contract assets and liabilities consistent with the manner by which they were recognized and measured by the acquiree. This update is effective for the Company on January 1, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The impact that ASU 2021-08 may have on the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements will depend on the circumstances of any business combination that may occur after adoption.

2.    Revenues
Disaggregation of Revenues
The following table presents a disaggregation of our consolidated revenues by type for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:

3.    Acquisitions
Finxera Acquisition
On September 17, 2021, the Company completed its acquisition of 100% of the equity interests of Finxera. Finxera is a provider of deposit account management and licensed money transmission services in the U.S. The acquisition will allow the Company to offer clients turn-key merchant services, payment facilitation, card issuing, automated payables, virtual banking, e-wallet tools, risk management, underwriting and compliance on a single platform.
The transaction was funded with the Company's cash on hand, proceeds from the issuance of the redeemable senior preferred stock and debt, and the issuance of common equity shares to the sellers.
The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting, under which the assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recognized at their fair values as of September 17, 2021, with the excess of the fair value of consideration transferred over the fair value of the net assets acquired recognized as goodwill. The fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of September 17, 2021 were estimated by management based on the valuation of the Finxera business using the discounted cash flow method and other factors specific to certain assets and liabilities. The purchase price allocation is set forth in the table below.

(1)The fair value of the 7,551,354 shares of PRTH common stock that were issued was determined based on their market price at the time of closing adjusted for an appropriate liquidity discount due to trading restrictions under Securities Rule 144.
(2)The intangible assets acquired consist of $154.9 million for referral partner relationships, $34.3 million for technology, $20.1 million for customer relationships and $2.1 million for money transmission licenses.
Goodwill of $245.1 million arising from the acquisition primarily consists of the expected synergies and other benefits from combining operations. Approximately $8.7 million of the goodwill attributable to the acquisition is expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. The goodwill was allocated 100% to the Company's Enterprise Payments reportable segment.
In 2020, Finxera acquired two businesses for which the purchase price included contingent consideration valued at $6.1 million. The contingent consideration payable is comprised of earnout opportunities equal to 50% of certain revenues earned from the customers assumed in these acquisitions. The associated earnout opportunities are to be measured and paid every six months and expire at various dates through December 31, 2023. As of March 31, 2022, $0.5 million of the $6.1 million of total contingent consideration has been paid. The remaining $5.6 million was accrued, of which $2.0 million and $3.6 million were included in accounts payable and accrued expenses and other noncurrent liabilities, respectively, on the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 31, 2022.
Other Acquisitions
Wholesale Payments, Inc.
On April 28, 2021, a subsidiary of the Company completed its acquisition of certain residual portfolio rights for a purchase price of $42.4 million and $24.8 million of post-closing payments and earnout payments based on meeting certain attrition thresholds over a three-year period from the date of acquisition. The transaction did not meet the definition of a business, therefore it was accounted for as an asset acquisition under which the cost of the acquisition was allocated to the acquired assets based on relative fair values. As of March 31, 2022, the sellers earned $3.8 million of the $24.8 million, which was paid during 2021, increasing the total purchase price recorded to $46.2 million, which was recorded to residual buyout intangible assets with a seven-year useful life amortized on a straight-line basis. As this is an asset acquisition, additional purchase price is accounted for when payment to the seller becomes probable and is added to the carrying value of the asset. The seller's note payable to the Company of $3.0 million and an advance of $2.0 million outstanding at the time of the purchase was netted

Table of Contents
against the initial purchase price, resulting in cash of $41.2 million being paid by the Company to the seller, which was funded from cash proceeds from the issuance of the redeemable senior preferred stock and cash on hand.
C&H
On June 25, 2021, a subsidiary of the Company acquired certain assets and assumed certain related liabilities of C&H under an asset purchase agreement. C&H was an ISO partner of the Company where it developed expertise in software-integrated payment services, as well as marketing programs for specific verticals such as automotive and youth sports. This business is reported within the Company's SMB Payments reportable segment. The initial purchase price for the net assets was $35.0 million in cash and a total purchase price of not more than $60.0 million including post-closing payments and earnout payments based on certain gross profit and revenue achievements over a three-year period from the date of acquisition. The acquisition date fair value of the contingent consideration was $4.7 million, which increased the total purchase price to $39.7 million. The seller's note payable to the Company of $0.5 million at the time of purchase was netted against the initial purchase price, resulting in cash of $34.5 million being paid by the Company to the seller, which was funded from a $30.0 million draw down of the revolving credit facility under the Credit Agreement held by the Company and $4.5 million cash on hand. Transaction costs were not material and were expensed. The purchase price allocation is set forth in the table below.

(1)The intangible assets acquired consist of $20.2 million for merchant portfolio intangible assets with a ten-year useful life and $5.2 million for ISO partner relationships with a twelve-year useful life.
The goodwill for the Wholesale Payments, Inc. asset acquisition and the C&H business combination is deductible by the Company for income tax purposes. Based on their purchase prices and pre-acquisition operating results and assets, these two businesses acquired by the Company in 2021, as described above, did not meet the materiality requirements for pro forma disclosures individually or collectively.

4.    Settlement Assets and Customer Account Balances and Related Obligations
SMB Payments Segment
In the Company's SMB Payments reportable segment, funds settlement refers to the process of transferring funds for sales and credits between card issuers and merchants. The standards of the card networks require possession of funds during the settlement process by a member bank which controls the clearing transactions. Since settlement funds are required to be in the possession of a member bank until the merchant is funded, these funds are not assets of the Company and the associated obligations related to these funds are not liabilities of the Company. Therefore, neither is recognized in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets. Member banks held merchant funds of $105.7 million and $102.1 million at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
Exception items that become the liability of the Company are recorded as merchant losses, a component of costs of services in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations. Exception items that the Company is still attempting to collect from the merchants through the funds settlement process or merchant reserves are recognized as settlement assets and customer account balances in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets, with an offsetting reserve for those amounts the Company estimates it will not be able to recover. Expenses for merchant losses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were $1.1 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

Table of Contents
B2B Payments Segment
In the Company's B2B Payments segment, the Company earns revenues from certain of its services by processing transactions for FIs and other business customers. Customers transfer funds to the Company, which are held in either company-owned bank accounts controlled by the Company or bank-owned FBO accounts controlled by the banks, until such time as the transactions are settled with the customer payees. Amounts due to customer payees that are held by the Company in Company-owned bank accounts are included in restricted cash. Amounts due to customer payees that are held in bank-owned FBO accounts are not assets of the Company, and the associated obligations related to these funds are not liabilities of the Company. Therefore, neither is recognized in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets. Bank-owned FBO accounts held funds of $57.6 million and $45.5 million at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Company-owned bank accounts held $6.4 million and $21.4 million at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, which are included in restricted cash and settlement obligations in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Enterprise Payments Segment
In the Company's Enterprise Payments segment, revenue is derived primarily from enrollment fees, monthly subscription fees and transaction-based fees from licensed money transmission services. As part of its licensed money transmission services, the Company accepts deposits from consumers and subscribers which are held in bank accounts maintained by the Company on behalf of consumers and subscribers. After accepting deposits, the Company is allowed to invest available balances in these accounts in certain permitted investments, and the return on such investments contributes to the Company's net cash inflows. These balances are payable on demand. As such, the Company recorded these balances and related obligations as current assets and current liabilities. The nature of these balances are cash and cash equivalents but they are not available for day-to-day operations of the Company. Therefore, the Company has classified these balances as settlement assets and customer account balances and the related obligations as settlement and customer account obligations in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The Company's settlement assets and customer account balances and settlement and customer account obligations were as follows:

5.    Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets
Goodwill
The Company's goodwill relates to the following reporting units as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021:

SMB Payments$120,636 $120,636

Total$365,740 $365,740 
There were no impairment losses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. The Company performed its most recent annual goodwill impairment test as of October 1, 2021, using the optional qualitative method. Under the qualitative method, we examined the factors most likely to affect our valuations. As a result, we have concluded that it remains more likely than not that the fair value of each of our reporting units exceeds their carrying amounts. As of March 31, 2022, the Company is not aware of any triggering events that have occurred since October 1, 2021.
Other Intangible Assets
At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, other intangible assets consisted of the following:

Long-term debt, net$598,403 $604,105 
Interest Expense and Amortization of Deferred Loan Costs and Discounts
Deferred financing costs and debt discounts are amortized using the effective interest method over the remaining term of the respective debt and are recorded as a component of interest expense. Unamortized deferred financing costs and debt discounts are included in long-term debt on the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement accrue interest using either a base rate or a LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin per year, subject to a LIBOR rate floor of 1.00% per year. The revolving credit facility incurs an unused commitment fee on any undrawn amount in an amount equal to 0.50% per year of the unused portion. The future applicable interest rate margins may vary based on the Company's Total Net Leverage Ratio in addition to future changes in the underlying market rates for LIBOR and the rate used for base-rate borrowings.
Interest expense for outstanding debt, including fees for undrawn amounts and amortization of deferred financing costs and debt discounts, was $11.5 million, and $9.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. Interest expense included amortization of deferred financing costs and debt discounts of $0.8 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Table of Contents
Fair Value
Outstanding debt obligations are reflected in the Company's Unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets at carrying value since the Company did not elect to remeasure debt obligations to fair value at the end of each reporting period.
The fair value of the of the term facility was estimated to be $614.6 million and $613.8 million. at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, and was estimated using binding and non-binding quoted prices in an active secondary market, which considers the credit risk and market related conditions, and is within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.
The carrying values of the other long-term debt obligations approximate fair value due to mechanisms in the credit agreements that adjust the applicable interest rates and the lack of a market for these debt obligations.
Debt Covenants
The Credit Agreement contains representations and warranties, financial and collateral requirements, mandatory payment events, events of default and affirmative and negative covenants, including without limitation, covenants that restrict among other things, the ability to create liens, pay dividends or distribute assets from the loan parties to the Company, merge or consolidate, dispose of assets, incur additional indebtedness, make certain investments or acquisitions, enter into certain transactions (including with affiliates) and to enter into certain leases.
If the aggregate principal amount of outstanding revolving loans and letters of credit under the Credit Agreement exceeds 35% of the total revolving facility thereunder, the loan parties are required to comply with certain restrictions on its Total Net Leverage Ratio. If applicable, the maximum permitted Total Net Leverage Ratio is: 1) 6.50:1.00 at each fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021 through June 30, 2022; 2) 6.00:1.00 at each fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2022 through June 30, 2023; and 3) 5.50:1.00 at each fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2023 each fiscal quarter thereafter. As of March 31, 2022, the Company was in compliance with our financial covenants.

10.    Income Taxes
The Company's consolidated effective income tax rate was 49.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to a consolidated effective income tax rate of 45.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The effective rate for March 31, 2022 differed from the statutory rate of 21.0% primarily due to an increase in the valuation allowance against certain business interest carryover deferred tax assets. The effective rate for March 31, 2021 differed from the statutory federal rate of 21.0% primarily due to an increase in the valuation allowance against certain business interest carryover deferred tax assets.
Valuation Allowance for Deferred Income Tax Assets
The Company considers all available positive and negative evidence to determine whether sufficient taxable income will be generated in the future to permit realization of the existing deferred tax assets. In accordance with the provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes, the Company is required to provide a valuation allowance against deferred income tax assets when it is "more likely than not" that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
Based on management's assessment, as of March 31, 2022, the Company continues to record a full valuation allowance against non-deductible interest expense. The Company will continue to evaluate the realizability of the net deferred tax asset on a quarterly basis and, as a result, the valuation allowance may change in future periods.

11.    Commitments and Contingencies
Minimum Annual Commitments with Third-party Processors
The Company has multi-year agreements with third parties to provide certain payment processing services to the Company. The Company pays processing fees under these agreements that are based on the volume and dollar amounts of processed payment transactions. Some of these agreements have minimum annual requirements for processing volumes. Based on existing contracts in place at March 31, 2022, the Company is committed to pay minimum processing fees under these agreements of approximately $15.7 million in 2022 and $16.6 million in 2023.
Contingent Consideration
For asset acquisitions that do not meet the definition of a business, the portion of the unpaid purchase price that is contingent on future activities is not initially recorded by the acquirer on the date of acquisition. Rather, the acquirer generally recognizes contingent consideration when it becomes probable and estimable.
On March 15, 2019, a subsidiary of the Company paid $15.2 million cash to acquire certain residual portfolio rights. This asset acquisition became part of the Company's SMB Payments reportable segment. The initial purchase price is subject to an increase of up to $6.4 million in accordance with the terms of the agreement between the Company and the sellers. As of March 31, 2022, the sellers had not achieved the criteria to earn the remaining $2.1 million.
See Note 3, Acquisitions, for information about contingent consideration related to other acquisitions.
Legal Proceedings
The Company is involved in certain legal proceedings and claims which arise in the ordinary course of business. In the opinion of the Company and based on consultations with internal and external counsel, the results of any of these matters, individually and in the aggregate, are not expected to have a material effect on the Company's results of operations, financial condition or cash flows. As more information becomes available, and the Company determines that an unfavorable outcome is probable on a claim and that the amount of probable loss that the Company will incur on that claim is reasonably estimable, the Company will record an accrued expense for the claim in question. If and when the Company records such an accrual, it could be material and could adversely impact the Company's results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

Concentration of Risks
The Company's revenue is substantially derived from processing Visa and MasterCard bankcard transactions. Because the Company is not a member bank, in order to process these bankcard transactions, the Company maintains sponsorship agreements with member banks which require, among other things, that the Company abide by the by-laws and regulations of the card associations.
A majority of the Company's cash and restricted cash is held in certain FIs, substantially all of which is in excess of federal deposit insurance corporation limits. The Company does not believe it is exposed to any significant credit risk from these transactions.

12.    Stock-based Compensation
For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, stock-based compensation was as follows:

On March 17, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors unanimously approved an amendment to the 2018 Plan, subject to approval by our shareholders, to increase the number of shares authorized for issuance under the plan by 2,500,000 shares, resulting in 9,185,696 shares of the Company's common stock authorized for issuance under the plan.
2021 Stock Purchase Plan
The 2021 Stock Purchase Plan provides for up to 200,000 shares to be purchased under the plan. Shares issued under the plan may be authorized but unissued or reacquired shares of common stock. All employees of the Company who work more than 20 hours per week and have been employed by the Company for at least 30 days may participate in the 2021 Stock Purchase Plan.
Under the 2021 Stock Purchase Plan, participants are offered, on the first day of the offering period, the option to purchase shares of Common Stock at a discount on the last day of the offering period. The offering period shall be for a period of three months, and the first offering period began on January 10, 2022. The 2021 Stock Purchase Plan provides eligible employees the opportunity to purchase shares of the Company's common stock on a quarterly basis through payroll deductions at a price equal to 95% of the lesser of the fair value on the first and last trading day of each offering period.

13.    Segment Information
Prior to the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company's three reportable segments included the Consumer Payments segment, the Commercial Payments segment and the Integrated Partners segment.

Results of Operations 
This section includes certain components of our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021.
