Key financial statistics in the second quarter of 2017 as compared to the second quarter of 2016 include:

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Consolidated revenues totaled $385.1 million for the second quarter of 2017, representing a 19% increase from $324.0 million from the same period of 2016, driven by the DirectCash Payments Inc. (“DCPayments”) and Spark ATM Systems Pty Ltd. (“Spark”) acquisitions completed during January 2017. ATM operating revenues for the second quarter of 2017 were up 20% from the same period of 2016. Adjusting for movements in currency exchange rates, ATM operating revenues were up 23% from the same period of 2016.

Driven primarily by the acquisitions completed during January 2017, ATM operating revenues in North America increased 11% and ATM operating revenues in Europe & Africa increased 6% (16% on a constant-currency basis) compared to the same period of 2016. The DCPayments operations in Australia & New Zealand contributed $32.9 million in ATM operating revenues and $8.9 million in gross profit during the second quarter of 2017. The appreciation of the U.S. dollar relative to the British pound adversely impacted the Company’s reported revenues and profits in the second quarter of 2017. The British pound was on average 10% weaker relative to the U.S. dollar during the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same period of 2016.

GAAP Net Income for the second quarter of 2017 was $15.2 million compared to GAAP Net Income of $20.1 million during the same period of 2016. The decrease in GAAP Net Income was primarily the result of the incremental interest, depreciation, and intangible asset amortization expenses associated with the acquisitions completed during January 2017, as well as the incremental professional services and other costs associated with the Company’s integration of the acquisitions. The Company’s GAAP tax rate was 23.6% for the second quarter of 2017 compared to 32.9% for the same period of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2017 totaled $87.7 million ($90.9 million on a constant-currency basis) compared to $81.7 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the same period of 2016. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by the acquisitions completed during January 2017, partially offset by changes in currency exchange rates and higher operating costs, primarily associated with the Company’s U.S. ATM fleet upgrade to enable technology enhancements and comply with the EMV security standard and interim fraud loss exposure. Adjusted Net Income totaled $35.0 million ($0.76 per diluted share or $0.79 on a constant-currency basis) for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $36.8 million ($0.80 per diluted share) during the same period of 2016. The decrease in Adjusted Net Income is attributable to the factors discussed above and increased depreciation and interest expense associated with the acquisitions, as well as increased depreciation expense associated with the Company’s U.S. ATM fleet upgrade.

SIX MONTH RESULTS

Consolidated revenues totaled $742.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, representing an 18% increase from $627.2 million from the same period of 2016, driven by the acquisitions completed during January 2017. ATM operating revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2017 were up 19% from the same period of 2016. Adjusting for movements in currency exchange rates, ATM operating revenues were up 22% from the same period of 2016.

Driven by the acquisitions completed during January 2017, ATM operating revenues in North America increased 10% and ATM operating revenues in Europe & Africa increased 2% (14% on a constant-currency basis) compared to the same period of 2016. The DCPayments operations in Australia & New Zealand contributed $64.4 million in ATM operating revenues and $17.1 million in gross profit during the six months ended June 30, 2017. The appreciation of the U.S. dollar relative to the British pound adversely impacted the Company’s reported revenues and profits in the six months ended June 30, 2017. The British pound was on average 12% weaker relative to the U.S. dollar during the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the same period of 2016.

GAAP Net Income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $14.3 million compared to GAAP Net Income of $35.5 million during the same period of 2016. The decrease in GAAP Net Income is partially attributable to $8.2 million of restructuring expenses recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2017, mostly related to employee severance costs in conjunction with the Company’s cost reduction initiative. The Company also incurred $12.4 million of professional services and other costs associated with the completion and integration of the acquisitions completed during January 2017. Also, related to the recently completed acquisitions, the Company’s intangible asset amortization expense was up $11.5 million compared to the same period of 2016. The Company’s GAAP tax rate was 10.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to 33.4% for the same period of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2017 totaled $158.9 million ($164.8 million on a constant-currency basis) compared to $154.9 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the same period of 2016. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by the acquisitions completed during January 2017, partially offset by lower revenue in the U.S., coupled with changes in currency exchange rates and higher operating costs, primarily associated with the Company’s U.S. ATM fleet upgrade to comply with the EMV security standard and interim fraud loss exposure and to enable other technology enhancements. Adjusted Net Income totaled $60.6 million ($1.31 per diluted share or $1.36 on a constant-currency basis) for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $68.1 million ($1.49 per diluted share) during the same period of 2016. The decrease in Adjusted Net Income is attributable to the factors discussed above and increased depreciation and interest expense associated with the acquisitions, as well as increased depreciation expense associated with the Company’s U.S. ATM fleet upgrade.

BORROWINGS AND LIQUIDITY

On April 4, 2017, the Company issued $300 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”) in a private placement offering. The net proceeds after payment of the related expenses were used to repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility. Subsequent to the issuance of the 2025 Notes, the revolving credit facility was amended to decrease the borrowing capacity from $600 million to $400 million. The revolving credit facility was also amended to include an accordion provision enabling an additional potential borrowing capacity of approximately $100 million under certain conditions.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had outstanding borrowings of approximately $184 million and approximately $216 million in available borrowing capacity under its $400 million revolving credit facility due in 2021. Additionally, the Company had $53 million in cash as of June 30, 2017. The Company’s other outstanding indebtedness as of June 30, 2017 included $288 million Convertible Senior Notes due 2020, $250 million in Senior Notes due 2022, and the $300 million 2025 Notes that were issued during the second quarter of 2017. The Convertible Senior Notes due 2020, Senior Notes due 2022, and 2025 Notes had carrying balances of $246 million, $248 million, and $295 million, respectively, and are reflected as long-term debt on the balance sheet, net of unamortized discount and capitalized debt issuance costs.

SEGMENT REPORTING CHANGE

During the second quarter of 2017, the DCPayments operations in Canada and Mexico were integrated into the Company’s North America operations and are now reported in the North America segment. The Australia and New Zealand operations that were acquired in the DCPayments acquisition are now presented in a newly created Australia & New Zealand segment. The DCPayments operations in the U.K. are now reported within the Company’s Europe & Africa segment. Additionally, the Company’s transaction processing operations are now reported within the North America segment, having previously been reported in the Corporate & Other segment. Conforming changes to prior periods have been made, where applicable.

2017 GUIDANCE

Below is the Company’s financial guidance for the full year 2017:

  • Revenues of $1.45 billion to $1.5 billion;
  • Gross profit margin of 33.1% to 33.3%;
  • GAAP Net Income of $47 million to $54 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $325 million to $340 million;
  • Depreciation and accretion expense of $112 million to $115 million;
  • Cash interest expense of $34 million to $35 million;
  • Adjusted Net Income of $130 million to $139 million;
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $2.80 to $3.00, based on approximately 46.3 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding; and
  • Capital expenditures of $130 million to $140 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 earnings release. This guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates for the year of £1.00 U.K. to $1.25 U.S., $20.00 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S., $1.00 Canadian dollar to $0.77 U.S., €1.00 Euros to $1.10 U.S., $1.00 Australian dollar to $0.77 U.S., and R14.29 South African Rand to $1.00 U.S. Additionally, this guidance is based on an estimated non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 27% for the remainder of 2017.

Included in the guidance above is the assumption that the deinstallations of the ATMs at 7-Eleven locations in the U.S. will occur primarily throughout the next five months of 2017 and be substantially complete by the end of the year, with a small number of units expected to continue to operate into the first quarter of 2018. 7-Eleven in the U.S. accounted for approximately 18% of the Company’s consolidated revenues for the year ended 2016. The Company estimates that the incremental gross margin associated with these revenues is approximately 45%, compared to the Company’s reported consolidated gross margin of 36% in 2016. While the ATM deinstallation schedule remains subject to change as of the date of this earnings release, the Company currently estimates that the approximate revenue impact associated with the deinstallations is approximately $40 million to $60 million and the approximate impact to gross margin will be approximately $30 million to $35 million in 2017, relative to 2016, during which the Company had the contract in place for the full year.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This earnings release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are intended to be covered by the safe harbor provisions thereof. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on the Company and there can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company will be those that are anticipated. All comments concerning the Company’s expectations for future revenues and operating results are based on its estimates for its existing operations and do not include the potential impact of any future acquisitions. The Company’s forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond its control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from its historical experience and present expectations or projections. Risk factors are described in the Company’s 2016 Form 10-K, and those set forth from time-to-time in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained in this earnings release, which speak only as of the date of this earnings release. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date they are made, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

DISCLOSURE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, Free Cash Flow, and certain GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis represent non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to financial 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 notable, non-cash, and/or (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods 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 methods by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes share-based compensation expense, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, certain non-operating expenses, (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods, gains or losses on disposal and impairment 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 Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization of intangible assets, gains or losses on disposal and impairment of assets, share-based compensation expense, certain other expense amounts, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, certain non-operating expenses, and (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods (together, the “Adjustments”). Prior to and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, Adjusted Net Income was calculated using an estimated long-term, cross-jurisdictional effective cash tax rate of 32%. Subsequent to the redomicile of the Company’s parent company to the U.K., the Company revised the process for determining its non-GAAP tax rate and now utilizes a non-GAAP tax rate derived from the GAAP tax rate adjusted for the net tax effects of the Adjustments, based on the nature and geography of the Adjustments. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, the non-GAAP tax rate used to calculate Adjusted Net Income was approximately 27.7% and 27.9%, respectively. 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 excluding acquisitions. The Free Cash Flow measure does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as mandatory principal payments on portions of the Company’s long-term debt. Management calculates certain GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis using the average foreign currency exchange rates applicable in the corresponding period of the previous year and applying these rates to the measures in the current reporting period. Management uses GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis to assess performance and eliminate the effect foreign currency exchange rates have on comparability between periods.

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 earnings release.
