  • Although the specific timing for larger economic recovery remains uncertain, as a result of increased confidence in the Company’s financial position and strong execution against its strategic plan, Deluxe is establishing guidance for the full year 2021:
  • Full year 2021 revenue is expected to grow in the range of 0% to 2% primarily due to the combination of sales transformation and related wins and steady macro-economic recovery from COVID-19.
  • We expect first quarter financial performance to be a continuation of fourth quarter 2020 results as we begin to lap the onset of the pandemic in March 2020.
  • We are positioned for recovery to begin in the second quarter, enabling us to exit the year with revenue growth in mid-single digits.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin for full year 2021 is expected to be in the range between 20% to 21%, at the lower end of the company’s long-term target range.
  • We expect our tax rate to continue to be approximately 25%.
