Cardtronics Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2014 Results - Surpasses $1 Billion in Annual Revenues

HOUSTON, Feb. 4, 2015 (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 and year ended December 31, 2014.

Key financial statistics in the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 include:

  • Total revenues of $283.9 million, up 17% from $241.9 million.
  • ATM operating revenues of $260.8 million, up 11% from $234.6 million.
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.64, up 31% from $0.49.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $65.6 million, up 15% from $57.3 million.
  • Adjusted Gross Profit Margin of 33.0% up from 32.5%.
  • GAAP net income of $5.5 million or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to $7.5 million net income or $0.16 per diluted share. GAAP net income was negatively impacted in the fourth quarter of 2014 by higher intangible asset amortization expense and a higher GAAP income tax expense compared to the fourth quarter of last year.

"We had a very busy fourth quarter, which was highlighted by closing of the Welch and Sunwin acquisitions and the Co-op Food ATM placement contract. We are very excited about the new business and expect significant contributions in 2015 and beyond, as we fully realize the potential of those recent acquisitions," said Steve Rathgaber, the company's chief executive officer. "2014 was another great year for Cardtronics in which we surpassed the $1 billion revenue mark and continued to grow the business profitably, which is a reflection of our formula for success - core business execution and expansion through smart acquisitions."

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Commenced migration of the Co-op Food ATM estate to our U.K. business, with a total of over 1,900 high-transacting ATM locations anticipated to be completely migrated by the summer of 2015. We also expect to install additional ATMs in a majority of the 800 Co-op Food locations that do not currently have ATMs.
  • Expanded our relationship with Waitrose / John Lewis stores in the U.K. to add an additional 300 plus ATM sites in 2015.
  • Extended our relationship with The Pantry, a leading convenience store chain, for which we manage and operate more than 1,400 ATMs.
  • Completed the acquisition of Sunwin Services Group ("Sunwin") in the U.K., Sunwin provides cash logistics, ATM maintenance, and other services.
  • Closed the acquisition of Welch ATM, a leading ATM operator of approximately 26,000 ATMs in the United States.
  • Expanded a relationship with PNC Bank to brand 95 additional locations in the southeast United States.
  • Renewed a relationship with First Data's Star network to allow Star surcharge-free program member financial institutions access to our Allpoint Network's surcharge-free ATMs.
  • Completed a five year contract renewal with Global Cash Card, a leading provider of custom pay card solutions.
  • Extended our existing relationship to become the sole ATM supplier to a leading fuel and convenience store operator in the U.K., taking on an additional 75 sites to increase the total ATM count with this operator to over 300 ATMs.

Please refer to the "Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Information" contained later in this press release for definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Gross Profit Margin, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share and Free Cash Flow. For additional financial information, including reconciliations to comparable accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), please refer to the supplemental schedules of selected financial information at the end of this press release.

FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Consolidated revenues totaled $283.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, representing a 17% increase from the $241.9 million generated during the fourth quarter of 2013. Our ATM operating revenues were up 11% from the fourth quarter of 2013, driven both by acquisitions and organic growth. For the quarter, we achieved an organic growth rate in ATM operating revenues of 6% on a constant-currency basis. ATM product sales and other revenues were $23.1 million, up from $7.4 million in 2013, with the majority of the year-over-year increase attributable to the recently acquired Sunwin business in the U.K. which provides cash in transit, ATM maintenance and other services.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $65.6 million, compared to $57.3 million during the fourth quarter of 2013, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $29.0 million ($0.64 per diluted share) compared to $21.7 million ($0.49 per diluted share) during the fourth quarter of 2013. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share were primarily driven by the Company's revenue growth. Adjusted Net Income was also positively impacted in the quarter by lower depreciation expense, which was down approximately $0.7 million from the prior year, as a result of certain assets becoming fully depreciated and a change in an estimate regarding asset retirement obligations. 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 income for the fourth quarter of 2014 totaled $5.5 million, compared to GAAP net income of $7.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2013. The decrease in GAAP net income from the fourth quarter of 2013 was primarily due to an increase in amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired during 2014 and a higher income tax rate.

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

FULL - YEAR RESULTS

For the year ended December 31, 2014, consolidated revenues totaled $1.05 billion, representing a 20% increase from the $876.5 million generated during the same period in 2013. Of the 20% year-over-year increase, 13% was driven by revenues attributable to businesses acquired over the past year, with the remaining 7% increase attributable to organic growth from new and existing merchants and financial institution customers.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $253.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, representing a 16% increase over the $218.8 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2013. Adjusted Net Income totaled $108.0 million ($2.41 per diluted share) for the year ended December 31, 2014, up 25% on a per share basis from $86.2 million ($1.93 per diluted share) during the same period in 2013. The increases in both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income were primarily due to year-over-year-revenue growth.

GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2014 totaled $37.1 million, compared to $23.8 million during 2013. The increase in GAAP net income from the year ended December 31, 2013 was primarily due to an increase in gross margin attributable to higher revenues and lower income tax expense, partially offset by certain debt retirement costs and higher intangible asset amortization in 2014.

2015 GUIDANCE

Below is the Company's financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2015:

  • Revenues of $1.17 billion to $1.20 billion;
  • Gross Profit Margin of approximately 33.0% to 33.5%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $293 million to $302 million;
  • Depreciation and accretion expense of approximately $91 million to $93 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Cash interest expense of approximately $20 million to $21 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $2.74 to $2.83, based on approximately 45.2 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding; and
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $140 million to $150 million.

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 $1.50 U.S. to £1.00 U.K., $14.75 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S., $1.00 Canadian dollar to $0.825 U.S., and €1.00 Euros to $1.15 U.S. This guidance also assumes that we continue operations at existing economic terms under our material customer contracts.

LIQUIDITY

The Company continues to maintain a strong liquidity position, with $238 million in available borrowing capacity under its $375 million revolving credit facility as of December 31, 2014. The Company's outstanding indebtedness as of December 31, 2014 consisted of $250 million in senior notes due 2022, $288 million convertible senior notes due 2020 (of which $225 million is recorded as long-term debt on our balance sheet, with the remaining balance in additional paid-in capital), and $137 million in borrowings under its revolving credit facility due 2019.

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 GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in managing and measuring the performance of its business, including setting and measuring incentive based compensation for management. 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 of intangible assets 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, the Company's obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense and other obligations such as capital expenditures, and includes an adjustment for noncontrolling interests. Adjusted Gross Profit Margin is calculated excluding certain nonrecurring costs from the cost of ATM operating revenues. Adjusted Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization of intangible assets, loss on disposal of assets, stock-based compensation expense, certain other expense (income) amounts, nonrecurring expenses, and acquisition-related expenses, and uses an assumed tax rate of 32% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014, 35% through June 30, 2013 and 33.5% from July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013, with certain adjustments for noncontrolling interests. 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 weighted average 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 excludes acquisitions. The Free Cash Flow measure 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, gross profit margin, 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.
