At the end of F2Q18, HSA members totaled 2.9 million, a 26% y/y increase. Custodial assets were $5.4 billion (+28% y/y). Both metrics validate our view that HQY is gaining market share. Investment assets increased by 61% y/y. Service revenue of $22.8 million grew 21% y/y, but fell to 40% of total revenue, as HQY has been charging lower account fees to increase the number of accounts. Interchange revenue of $12.8 million rose 21% y/y. HQY’s annualized interest yield on cash AUM was 1.83% vs. 1.72% in F1Q18. The increase was driven by a bank returning assets to HQY. HQY successfully placed these assets at a higher rate. We expect HQY to continue to benefit from a rising interest- rate environment.””
