Cardtronics

HOUSTON, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CATM) (the "Company"), the world's largest retail ATM owner, today announced its financial and operational results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Key financial statistics in the third quarter of 2013 as compared to the third quarter of 2012 include:

  • Total revenues of $228.8 million, up 15% from $199.0 million.
  • ATM operating revenues of $222.7 million, up 16% from $191.5 million.
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.55, up 28% from $0.43.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $59.1 million, up 19% from $49.5 million.
  • Free Cash Flow of $26.4 million, up from $13.0 million.
  • Adjusted Gross Profit Margin of 33.6%, up 230 basis points from 31.3%.
  • GAAP net loss of $8.4 million or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $12.9 million net income or $0.28 per diluted share. GAAP net loss was negatively impacted in the third quarter by three nonrecurring expense items described in further detail in this release.

Steve Rathgaber, the company's chief executive officer commented, "We had another strong quarter, which was highlighted by the completion of our largest acquisition to date, which significantly expanded our European operations. We were very pleased with the early returns from this investment, which was included in our results for just under two months in the third quarter. Our third quarter results also reflect our continued success in leveraging our revenue growth into strong bottom line earnings growth, which was up 28% on an adjusted per share basis."

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Expansion in the U.K. and entry into Germany through the acquisition of Cardpoint Limited ("Cardpoint"), an ATM operator of approximately 7,100 ATMs in the U.K. and approximately 800 ATMs in Germany. This acquisition was completed on August 7, 2013 and the results from this acquired business have been included in the Company's results since this date.
  • Acquisition on October 1, 2013 of the assets of CGI, Inc., a Chandler, Arizona-based ATM operator of approximately 1,000 primarily merchant-owned ATMs.
  • Extension of a long-term contract with Costco Wholesale to continue operating more than 450 ATMs located in 39 states today, with expansion rights for future Costco locations.
  • Extension of a long-term contract with Chevron to continue operating more than 280 ATMs.
  • Execution of an agreement with H-E-B, a leading grocery store chain in Texas, to operate over 300 ATMs in its existing store locations, with expansion rights for future stores.
  • Execution of a long-term agreement with Timewise Food Stores, a leading Texas convenience store chain, to install and operate more than 225 Company-owned ATMs by the end of the year, with expansion rights for future locations.
  • Execution of an agreement with a major U.K. supermarket brand to place over 100 ATMs in its stores.
  • Launch of the Enterprise Growth Group lead by David Dove, a new internal organization focused on strategic initiatives to leverage and extend the strengths of the Company for sustained profitable growth.

Effects of foreign currency exchange rate movements had an insignificant impact on reported consolidated revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share during the quarter.

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

ATM operating revenues were up 16% from the third quarter of 2012. The increase in ATM operating revenues was primarily driven by revenues attributable to businesses acquired over the past year, accounting for twelve percentage points of the 16% ATM operating revenue growth. The remaining 4% was the result of organic growth with new and existing merchants and financial institution customers. Consolidated revenues totaled $228.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, representing a 15% increase from the $199.0 million in consolidated revenues generated during the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year consolidated revenue growth is attributable to the same factors discussed above but reduced by a decline in our year-over-year ATM product sales, which were down $1.4 million from the third quarter of 2012. The year-over-year decline in ATM product sales is attributable to decreased equipment sales associated with updated requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which became effective in the first quarter of 2012 and caused continued demand for new ATM equipment even after the first quarter 2012 deadline. As the Company's ATM product sales are generally much lower margin revenues than its ATM operating revenues, the $1.4 million revenue decline from the third quarter of 2012 did not have a significant impact on the Company's profitability in the current quarter's results.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 totaled $59.1 million, compared to $49.5 million during the third quarter of 2012, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $24.7 million ($0.55 per diluted share) compared to $18.8 million ($0.43 per diluted share) during the third quarter of 2012. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share were driven by the factors discussed above that impacted the Company's revenue growth and reductions in its operating costs on a per transaction basis. Specific costs excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are detailed in a reconciliation included at the end of this press release.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2013 totaled $8.4 million, compared to GAAP net income of $12.9 million during the same quarter in 2012. The decrease in GAAP net income from the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to the effect of the following major factors:

  • A nonrecurring charge of $8.4 million included in cost of ATM operating revenues related to retroactive property taxes on certain ATM locations in the U.K. The Company was notified in September (and other industry participants were also recently notified) that certain ATMs that were previously not taxed would now be subject to property taxes and that such taxes may be due retroactively back to April 2010. The Company had no previous requirement to pay these taxes unless they were assessed by U.K. authorities. However, during the third quarter, the governmental agency responsible for assessing property taxes in the U.K. changed its approach for assessing taxes on all off-premise ATM sites. As a result of this change in approach and notification by the U.K. government agency during the quarter, the Company recorded an accrual based on its best estimate of what its net liability might be. The Company intends to challenge the assessments and has engaged professional advisors to assist in its efforts. These taxes are not expected to have a material ongoing impact on the Company's operations.
  • Acquisition-related expenses of $3.5 million that were recorded during the quarter, primarily related to the Cardpoint acquisition that was completed in August 2013.
  • A nonrecurring income tax charge of $13.6 million related to the restructuring of its U.K. business. The effect of this restructuring will be to lower the Company's cash tax rate in the future.

Partially offsetting these nonrecurring expenses were the same positive factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income, as discussed above.

NINE MONTHS RESULTS

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, consolidated revenues totaled $634.5 million, representing a 9% increase from the $582.1 million in consolidated revenues generated during the same period in 2012. Of the 9% year-over-year increase, 5% was driven by revenues attributable to businesses acquired over the past year, with the remaining 4% increase attributable to a combination of increases in transactions per ATM, unit growth, increased revenues from higher bank branding and network branding revenues, and growth in Allpoint, partly offset by a $16.3 million reduction in ATM product sales and other revenues. ATM operating revenues, which exclude the decrease in ATM product sales and other revenues, were up 12% (7% on an organic basis) for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $161.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, representing a 16% increase over the $139.4 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2012, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $64.4 million ($1.44 per diluted share) for the first nine months of 2013, up 21% on a per share basis from $52.3 million ($1.19 per diluted share) during the same period in 2012. The increases in both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income were primarily due to the same factors discussed above for the Company's quarterly results.

GAAP net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 totaled $16.3 million, compared to $32.4 million during the same period in 2012. The decrease in GAAP net income from the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was primarily due to the previously described effects of U.K. property taxes, an increase in acquisition-related expenses, and an increase in income tax expense. These effects were partially offset by the same positive factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income discussed above.

UPDATE OF FULL-YEAR 2013 GUIDANCE

The Company is updating the financial guidance it provided in August 2013 regarding its anticipated full-year 2013 results, and now expects the following:

  • Revenues of $867.0 million to $872.0 million;
  • Adjusted Gross Profit Margin of approximately 33.0% to 33.3%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $216.0 million to $218.0 million;
  • Depreciation and accretion expense of approximately $66.0 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Cash interest expense of approximately $21.5 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Adjusted Net Income of $1.89 to $1.92 per diluted share, based on approximately 44.7 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding; and
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $70.0 million, net of noncontrolling interests.

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance excludes the impact of certain expenses, as outlined in the reconciliation provided at the end of this press release. Additionally, this guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates for the remainder of the year of $1.55 U.S. to £1.00 U.K., $13.00 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S., $1.00 Canadian dollar to $0.95 U.S., and €1.00 Euros to $1.29 U.S.

LIQUIDITY

The Company believes that it continues to maintain a strong liquidity position, with $116.8 million in available borrowing capacity under its $375.0 million revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2013. The Company's outstanding indebtedness as of September 30, 2013 consisted of $200.0 million in senior subordinated notes due 2018, $256.1 million in borrowings under its revolving credit facility due 2016, and $1.7 million in equipment financing notes associated with its majority-owned Mexico subsidiary.

DISCLOSURE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Gross Profit Margin, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted within the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Management believes that the presentation of these measures and the identification of unusual, nonrecurring, or non-cash items enhance an investor's understanding of the underlying trends in the Company's business and provide for better comparability between periods in different years.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation, accretion, and amortization expense as these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the Company's industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes acquisition-related expenses, certain other non-operating and nonrecurring costs, loss on disposal of assets, our obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense or other obligations such as capital expenditures, and an adjustment for noncontrolling interest. Adjusted Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization expense, loss on disposal of assets, stock-based compensation expense, certain other expense (income) amounts, nonrecurring expenses, and acquisition-related expenses, and using an assumed tax rate of 35% through June 30, 2013 and 33.5% thereafter, with certain adjustments for noncontrolling interests. Adjusted Gross Profit Margin is calculated excluding certain nonrecurring costs from the cost of ATM operating revenues. Adjusted EBITDA %, Adjusted Pre-tax Income %, and Adjusted Net Income % are calculated by taking the respective non-GAAP financial measures over GAAP total revenues. Adjusted Net Income per diluted share is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by average weighted diluted shares outstanding. Free Cash Flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities less payments for capital expenditures, including those financed through direct debt but excluding acquisitions. The measure of Free Cash Flow does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as, for example, mandatory principal payments on portions of the Company's long-term debt.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities, or other income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures used herein to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in tabular form at the end of this press release.
