SafeCharge, a payments technology company, has published its trading statement this Wednesday, with the firm announcing a number of key management changes and its latest revenue expectations.
According to the statement, SafeCharge expects to close 2018 on strong footing following solid trading so far this year. Specifically, it expects its processed volume for its 2018 fiscal year to come in at $14 billion, which is up by more than 40 percent from 2017. The company also forecasts its revenue to beat market expectations for the full year and fall within the range of $135-138 million.
Furthermore, SafeCharge believes its adjusted EBITDA for the year will be in line with market expectations. This is due to the company continuing its platform development, investment in sales and marketing to support future growth.
