("Payfare" or the "Company") (TSX: PAY), a leading fintech powering instant payout and digital banking solutions for the gig workforce, today announced Q2 2022 revenue guidance of $33 million, which represents growth of 285% over the second quarter of 2021 and 35% over the first quarter of 2022.

Payfare also announced that it had over 884,000 active users1 as of June 30, 2022, an increase of approximately 188,000 users or 27% from March 31, 2022.

This press release contains references to "active users" which is not a measure prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This supplementary financial measure is provided as additional information to complement IFRS measures by providing a further understanding of our results of operations from management's perspective, to provide investors and security analysts with supplemental measures to evaluate the financial performance of the Company and highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures.
