Investment summary

EML Payments reported a strong underlying performance in FY21 driven by volume growth in the General Purpose Reloadable division and higher breakage revenue in the Gift & Incentive business. EML is working with the Irish regulator to resolve the issues within PFS’s European operations. The company completed the Sentenial acquisition at the end of September. This deal will bring open banking technologies to the group, enabling EML to offer both card-based and direct-from-bank-account technologies to its customer base.
