Catalysts are eCommerce, International, and ISV (see pg. 2 for add’l ISV info), which are all growing in double digits (Click here for our Finnovation Piece). International (~22% of revs) is a big opportunity for all three segments, with LATAM posting a 44% CAGR over 2015-17 and India a 10% CAGR. Brazil (3% market share), India are showing signs of strong demand. Debt paydown is a key priority." (6/13/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "First Data continues to benefit from innovative product and services portfolio and growing enterprise business. The company reported strong first quarter 2018 results beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both earnings ad revenues. First Data’s expanding clientele is a positive. Its strong focus on globalizing its offerings, acquisitions and strategic partnerships and a healthy business around large and small banks are other positives. The company has outperformed the industry it belongs to in the past year. On the flip side, acquisition related integration risks are likely to weigh on the company’s balance sheet. Seasonality in business is likely to hurt the company’s revenues and profits." (5/11/2018)
