TriumphPay's Q3 Highlights & Road Ahead
TriumphPay's financial performance is a tale of ups and downs. EBITDA losses narrow as invoice volumes soar, but the factoring business faces hurdles.
TriumphPay, a significant player in the freight finance sector, has been experiencing notable developments recently. Let's delve into the latest updates and challenges it's confronting
TriumphPay's EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) was in the red at -15% in the third quarter. But, here's the good news – it's a significant improvement compared to the negative margins in previous quarters. The company is determined to achieve EBITDA positivity by 2024.
TriumphPay processed over 5 million invoices in the third quarter, marking a 10.4% increase. However, this includes legacy fast pay invoices, which were at the core of their operations before expanding with the acquisition of HubTran in 2021.
For the network, the heartbeat of TriumphPay, invoice volume skyrocketed to 303,300, up from 181,904 in the previous quarter. This growth isn't just due to higher volume but also smart tech improvements.
Winning Big Clients
TriumphPay's mission is to bring brokers onto its network, and it's making progress. The company proudly boasts 53 of the top 100 brokers, six of the top 10, and two of the top five. The key metric here is the freight spend transacted by these brokers.
The recent additions to TriumphPay's client roster include the brokerage division of Knight-Swift and Bridgeway, with another top 5 broker waiting in the wings.
TriumphPay's Current Landscape
Factoring invoices in trucking have seen challenges, with Triumph Financial's average invoice size slightly decreasing. Even with rising diesel costs, October did show a slight increase in average invoice to $1,828. Yet, Aaron Graft, Triumph Financial's CEO, remains cautious. He highlights smaller carriers merging and concerns like dropping invoice prices and client attrition. The road ahead for TriumphPay's factoring business remains uncertain, but the company continues its efforts towards financial stability.
