Digital financial service company PayPal said it will not renew its sponsorship with the Phoenix Suns if the NBA team’s owner, Robert Sarver, remains in place.

PayPal owns advertising space on the Suns’ jerseys, among other branding opportunities with the team. It will remain a sponsor for this upcoming year despite CEO and president Dan Schulman citing Sarver’s behavior as a reason to not renew as the current contract ends following the 2022-23 season.

Schulman released the statement Friday after learning of the conclusions from the investigation into Sarver that confirmed he used racist and misogynistic language in the workplace, among other findings.
