TYR CEO’s Remarks

Robbie Cooke, Tyro’s CEO and MD said that our Alliance with Bendigo Bank is strategic are evident. Our expectations were met when the Alliance was announced in October 2020. The Alliance contributed $2.5 billion in transactions and $10 million in gross profit after Bendigo Bank’s gross profit portion.

We kept investing in growth prospects. Medipass, a health IT Company that joined the group in May 2021, provided an entire half for the first time. With Medipass, we now have leading unified health claiming and payment product. He added that we can now provide merchant acquiring services exclusively to Telstra business clients through over 350 Telstra retail outlets, Telstra Business Technology Centres, and online is an exciting new acquisition funnel for us.

TYR Dividend Update

For the half-year ending December 31, 2021, no dividends were declared or paid, and no dividends are expected to be paid in the future. In the first half of the fiscal year 2020, the company did not pay dividends.


Although the company provided no guidance for fiscal 2022, seeing its expansion policy, it is evident that the company is focused on increasing its market share. This is why we saw a significant increase in the revenue, but due to the increase in the cost of the sales, the EBITDA and profitability are severely affected. Profitability of the company is the second part of the plan when companies are expanding.
