Dear Fellow Stockholder:

We would like to begin by expressing our sincere gratitude to all EVO Payments stockholders, particularly those who stood by us as we weathered the impact of COVID-19 during the past two years.Your continued support, together with the support of our board of directors and the more than 2,200 EVO employees across the globe, enabled us to deliver outstanding results in 2021.Perhaps more importantly, we turned the page on 2021 with EVO well positioned to resume its long-term global growth strategy.

EVO entered 2021 with the vaccine rollout in Europe and the Americas underway and optimistic of a strong 2021 bounce-back.Unfortunately, with the Delta variant rapidly spreading globally in the first quarter and governments reinstating lockdowns, mask mandates, and work from home orders, those early recovery expectations dimmed as we exited the first quarter of 2021. Despite these headwinds, the spirit of the global ‘credit card consumer’ ultimately prevailed.With a rebound in consumer and business-to-business spending by mid-year, our year concluded better than we expected at its outset.The international distribution network of financial institution and technology partnerships we built over the past 12 years continues to drive our success.These partnerships, which remained resilient in the face of the pandemic, pushed thousands of new, profitable merchant relationships to our in-house acquiring technology solutions each month.

We took the opportunity of the 2020-2021 global commerce slowdown to refocus on further improving our operating efficiencies.This effort represented a significant undertaking across all our markets as we shed costs by leveraging existing internal capabilities and eliminating unnecessary functions.This effort resulted in sustained margin improvement, providing increased cash flows to further support future investments, debt repayment, and acquisitions.

Our growth strategy remains focused on positioning our investments in high cash-to-card markets, supported by our proprietary technology solutions which allow us to further grow market share. We saw a post-COVID-19 resumption of this strategy with the announcements of our entry into two new markets, Chile and Greece.As we have in other markets around the world, we are entering the Chilean and Greek markets through long-term partnerships with leading financial institutions that should deliver sustained market growth well into the future.Additionally, we augmented our capabilities through the acquisition of a technology gateway in Chile which will further compliment and support our growth in this new market by enabling e-commerce transactions.

We are very excited about the year ahead.While we all learn to live with and around COVID-19, the negative effects of this illness will continue to fade.For EVO, there have been some bright spots from the pandemic.COVID-19 further accelerated cash-to-card conversion trends in many of our markets and increased the use of e-commerce by consumers, driving an increase in our overall transaction volumes.COVID-19 also highlighted the solid performance of EVO’s global team as they grew the business in the face of continued work-life challenges, staffing shortages, and government mandates.All 2,200 EVO employees remain focused on a singular goal – delivering superior merchant acquiring services to the markets we serve.As markets continue to open in 2022, we believe EVO remains well positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities that exist in all markets, both existing and new.

We are also pleased with the progress we made this year to advance a number of corporate responsibility and governance initiatives.Specifically, we appointed two new Board members, Stacey Panayiotou and Nikki Harland, and recently launched our ESG website to provide additional disclosures related to the Company’s many ESG priorities. We also continued to be active in our local communities across our markets, both through donations and partnerships with non-profit organizations. We remain committed to advancing the interests of our stockholders, merchants, partners, employees, and communities, and we look forward to building upon these programs going forward.

These past two years demanded that EVO be nimble to adapt our business quickly and efficiently to meet market and macroeconomic change.We remain committed to continuing to do so across all markets.While the Ukrainian conflict may present new challenges in the year ahead, we have no exposure to the markets directly impacted and are confident in our ability to address any impact from this latest global challenge.
