Euronet Worldwide: Slightly Expensive, But Further Growth Could Make The Stock Attractive

Euronet Worldwide has continued to show strong growth across the European market. epay and Money Transfer segments have led such growth. Should we see a further rebound in earnings, then the stock should become more attractive from an earnings standpoint. Investment Thesis: While Euronet Worldwide (EEFT) is slightly expensive from an earnings standpoint, a further rebound in earnings growth could make the stock more attractive. Euronet Worldwide has been seeing a steady decline in price over the past two years, after having rebounded strongly after the initial COVID-19 market decline in March 2020: As a leading provider of global electronic payment services, the company was in a good position to expand its offerings during the emergency phase of COVID-19, when demand for electronic and online payments grew strongly. However, there appear to be growing concerns on whether the business can sustain growth in an inflationary environment - when consumers may ultimately cut back on spending. The purpose of this article is to assess whether Euronet Worldwide can thrive in the current macroeconomic environment. Performance Given that Euronet Worldwide had reached almost the peak of its growth (in price terms) in the quarter of March 2020, I decided to compare the company's cash position during this period to that of the most recent quarter. Balance Sheet Item March 2020 March 2022 Cash and cash equivalents (in USD '000) 709,521 986,534 Total current liabilities (in USD '000) 1,461,590 1,770,954 Cash to current liabilities ratio 48.54% 55.7% Source: Figures sourced from March 2020 and March 2022 Form 10-Qs. Cash to current liabilities ratio calculated by author. We can see that the company's cash to current liabilities ratio has actually improved over this period, indicating that Euronet Worldwide is in a better position to meet its short-term debt obligations. While diluted earnings per share came in at $0.16 in the most recent quarter, which is an improvement on the loss of -$0.16 seen in the same quarter last year, the company has yet to rebound to the prior earnings per share of $0.62 seen in March 2019. When looking at the company's earnings on a five-year basis, we can see that earnings per share have yet to rebound to pre-2020 levels, while the P/E ratio itself is still above the ratio that we saw during that period. YCharts In this regard, I take the view that despite improving cash performance - investors are likely to want to see further evidence of an earnings rebound before considering investment in the stock. Looking Forward In terms of growth drivers and potential risks for Euronet Worldwide, almost 54% of the company's revenue came from the European market in March 2022: Euronet Worldwide Form 10-Q March 2022 As such, the company could be at risk of revenue loss resulting from a falling euro, as a weaker currency means that the company stands to earn less in commissions in dollar terms. However, the fact that this segment raised 66% of its total revenues through branded payments (that is, prepaid payments through use of items such as prepaid debit cards, gift cards, vouchers, among others) means that the segment could see opportunity for growth in an inflationary environment given that rising costs of borrowing and fees from traditional financial institutions may increase demand for non-traditional payment methods.
