PagSeguro Digital : PagBank PagSeguro clarifies questions related to BCB public hearing about cap on debit and prepaid card transaction fees

PagBank PagSeguro clarifies questions related to BCB public hearing about cap on debit and prepaid card transaction fees

São Paulo, October 15, 2021 - PagSeguro Digital Ltd., or PagBank PagSeguro (NYSE: PAGS), wishes to clarify that after considering the various moving parts and analyzing internal data, PAGS has run several hypothetical scenarios taking into account all of the available information about the Brazilian Central Bank (BCB) public hearing 89/2021 on capping debit and prepaid card transaction interchange fees, and the conclusion at this time is: Regardless of the outcome of the public hearing, the impacts on PAGS Net Revenues1 and Net Income in 2022 are expected to be negligible. From 2023 onwards, the anticipated impact tends to be slightly positive for PAGS because of expected costs savings in interchange in the acquiring business.

The fact that PAGS has complementary payments businesses (acquiring and cards issuance) creates a natural hedge for the company. In case there is a negative impact in the card issuance in each period (i.e., decrease of interchange revenues from PagBank prepaid cards and/or shorter settlement period), PAGS immediately benefits from a positive impact on the acquiring business (i.e., decrease in interchange cost from all prepaid cards in the market that make transactions in PAGS acquiring business and/or shorter settlement of prepaid card receivables).

PagBank PagSeguro remains committed to improving financial inclusion and disrupting the banking industry, and we will continue to support our clients through the introduction of new and innovative products in the future.
