Building Adyen for the long term
“The Trading Update in Q1 of this year may have been a little out of character for us, with our half-yearly reporting intervals lining up well with our long-term outlook. However, the COVID-19 pandemic still dominates lives and businesses across the globe. Therefore, we feel it’s appropriate to also provide more color around the evolution of volumes for Q3 – with some regions now back-to-business, and others still experiencing stricter measures. Our focus continues to be on helping our merchants navigate this pandemic and its impact on society”, said Ingo Uytdehaage, Adyen’s CFO.
Historical figures have been adjusted since prior publications of results, please see the full Trading Update for a more extensive accounting adjustment.
