BTRS Holdings has produced growing revenue and gross profit, but operating losses remain high as macroeconomic conditions darken. I'm on Hold for BTRS Holdings until management can make a meaningful turn toward operating breakeven. A Quick Take On BTRS Holdings BTRS Holdings Inc. (BTRS) reported its Q2 2022 financial results on August 13, 2022, missing expected revenue and EPS estimates. The company provides a range of B2B payment processing and services to companies worldwide. With a slowing global economy, a strong U.S. dollar producing FX headwinds, no apparent cost-cutting efforts by management and continued high operating losses, my outlook on BTRS is a Hold for the near term. BTRS Holdings Overview Lawrenceville, New Jersey-based BTRS (Billtrust) was founded in 2001 to provide a variety of B2B payment software and related service options to organizations. The firm is headed by founder, Chairman and CEO, Flint Lane, who was previously Chairman and President of Paytrust, and EVP R&D at Logic Works.

BTRS Holdings' Market & Competition According to a 2022 market research report by IMARC Group, the market for B2B payments was an estimated $943 billion in 2021 and is forecast to reach $1.56 trillion by 2027. This represents a forecast CAGR of 8.3% from 2022 to 2027. The main drivers for this expected growth are increasing demand for automated and more efficient payment processing between businesses amid a rise of e-commerce activities worldwide. Also, small and medium-sized enterprises are seeking to take advantage of improved payment options to lower costs and increase flexibility.

BTRS's most recent GAAP Rule of 40 calculation was negative (18.7%) as of Q2 2022, so the firm has performed poorly in this regard, per the table below: Rule of 40 - GAAP Calculation Recent Rev. Growth % 17.4% GAAP EBITDA % -36.1% Total -18.7% (Source - Seeking Alpha) Commentary On BTRS Holdings In its last earnings call (Source - Seeking Alpha), covering Q2 2022's results, management highlighted a recent partnership deal with Procede Software in the commercial truck dealer management industry, as an example of its integration efforts. A significant growth area for the firm is its Business Payments Network, of which its digital lockbox feature, which automates receipts of various payment types, is what it calls a "must have for any AR department." However, management has noticed a more difficult macroeconomic environment but believes that in such environments, CFOs have even greater incentives to increase efficiency efforts across their enterprise. As to its financial results, net revenue rose 28.5% year-over-year, while adjusted gross margin hit 74.1%, which was 2.41% higher than in Q2 2021.
