I - Statement of Income
This press release includes certain non-GAAP measures. We present non-GAAP measures when we believe that the additional information is useful and meaningful to investors. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of our current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, we believe the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses, as the case may be, that may not be indicative of our core operating results and business outlook.
These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered separately from, or as a substitute for, our financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with IFRS. These measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.
Non-GAAP results consist of our GAAP results as adjusted to exclude the following items:
LTIP expenses: This consists of expenses for equity awards under our two long-term incentive plans (LTIP and LTIP-Goals). We exclude LTIP expenses from our non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses and the related employer payroll taxes depend on our stock price and the timing and size of exercises and vesting of equity awards, over which management has limited to no control, and as such management does not believe these expenses correlate to the operation of our business.
M&A expenses: This consists of expenses for mergers & acquisitions ("M&A") transactions, including, among others, expenses for external consulting, accounting and legal services in connection with due diligence and negotiating M&A documentation for our acquisitions, as well as amortization of the fair value of the acquired assets. We exclude M&A expenses from our non- GAAP measures primarily because such expenses are non-recurring and do not correlate to the operation of our business.
Income tax and social contribution onnon-GAAPadjustment: This represents the income tax effect related to the non-GAAP adjustments mentioned above.
For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, see the tables elsewhere in this press release under the following headings: "Reconciliation of Total Expenses to non-GAAP Total Expenses," "Reconciliation of Income Tax and Social Contribution to non-GAAP Income Tax and Social Contribution," "Reconciliation of Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income," "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA", "Reconciliation of Basic and diluted EPS to non-GAAP Basic and diluted EPS," and "Reconciliation of GAAP Measures to non-GAAP Measures."
Total revenue and income
Total revenues and income reached R$2,067.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, an improvement of 30.2% from R$1,587.3 million reported in the first quarter of 2020. The growth was mainly due to an increase in our Acquiring TPV and will be detailed in each revenue and income lines described below.
Revenue from transaction activities and other services
Revenues from transaction activities and other services in the 1Q21 amounted to R$1,385.0 million, an improvement of R$418.2 million, or 43.3%, from R$966.8 million presented in the 1Q20, because of the factors described below:
Gross revenues from transaction activities and other services in the 1Q21 amounted to R$1,555.4 million, an improvement of R$469.6 million, or 43.3%, from R$1,085.8 million recorded in the 1Q20. This increase was principally due to an increase of 33.5% in our active merchant base and a growth of 58.0% in our Acquiring TPV. In addition, in the first quarter of 2021, we recognized R$64.3 million in membership fees, an increase of R$49.2 million, from R$15.1 million presented in the 1Q20.
Gross revenues from transaction activities and other services during the first quarter of 2021 increased by a lower percentage than the growth of our Acquiring TPV, which increased to R$50.0 billion from R$31.7 billion reported in 1Q20. The difference in the growth rate is mainly due to new revenue initiatives, such as card issuance, loans, bill payments and mobile-top ups, among others.
Deductions from gross revenues from transaction activities and other services, which consist principally of taxes, amounted to R$170.4 million in the first quarter or 11.0% of Gross revenues from transaction activities and other services for the quarter. In the 1Q20, these deductions totaled R$119.0 million, and represented the same 11.0% in relation to the Gross revenue from transaction activities and other services for the quarter. The R$51.9 million, or 41.9%, increase in these deductions is directly related to our higher Acquiring TPV. Additionally, in 1Q21, R$6.0 million of these deductions corresponded to membership fee taxes, which corresponds to a growth of R$4.5 million from R$1.5 million recorded in the 1Q20.
The quarterly Financial income, which represents the discount fees we withhold from credit card transactions in installments for the early payment of accounts receivable, attained R$657.0 million, an increase of R$94.7 million, or 16.8%, from R$562.3 million presented in the 1Q20. The financial income growth was driven by a higher Acquiring TPV, on the one hand, and estimated present value of future cash flows, loss in the amount of R$23,899 in the first quarter of 2021, a gain of R$21,737 in the first quarter of 2020.
