Analyst Note

| Brett Horn, CFA |

While some headwinds persist, Global Payments continued to see its results bounce back from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the rate of recovery appears to be underwhelming the market, we believe the market is overly focused on the near-term ups and downs created by the pandemic.

We will maintain our $186 per share fair value estimate.
