  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $39.4 million, an 11% increase from $35.4 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $12.0 million or $0.24 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $13.2 million or $0.26 diluted earnings per share.
  • Adjusted cash earnings per share(3) of $0.38, a 15% increase from $0.33.
  • Transactions of 560 million, a 4% increase from 539 million.

See the reconciliation of non-GAAP items in the attached financial schedules.

"I am pleased that each of our three segments delivered revenue and operating income growth in the quarter, allowing us to exceed our guidance by delivering adjusted cash earnings per share of $0.38 for the first quarter," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The EFT and Money Transfer Segments continued to deliver solid results driven by network and product expansion. The epay Segment returned to growth by delivering new mobile and non-mobile products. We are very excited to start the year with all three segments contributing to our revenue and profit growth."

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2013 compared with the same period of 2012:

  • Revenues of $63.3 million, a 27% increase from $49.9 million (28% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $6.6 million, a 10% increase from $6.0 million (12% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14.9 million, a 24% increase from $12.0 million (25% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 274 million, a 3% increase from 266 million.
  • Operated 17,973 ATMs as of March 31, 2013, a 15% increase from 15,614.

Revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA expansion in the first quarter was driven by a 15% increase in ATMs under management and sales of value added services in Europe. The January 2013 acquisition of Pure Commerce contributed marginally to revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth, while operating income was reduced due to intangible amortization expense recorded for the acquisition. Without the additional non-cash intangible amortization recorded for the acquisition, the EFT Segment's first quarter operating income would have increased 33% over the prior year.

Transactions grew 3%, with the largest increases in Poland, Romania, Serbia, China and in our cross-border acquiring business. Partially offsetting this growth were transaction declines in India stemming from a certain government bank insourcing their transaction processing. While the number of transactions related to the Indian bank were substantial, those transactions were very low margin transactions and, accordingly, had limited impact on operating income. ATM growth of 15% was attributable to expansion in Poland and additional brown label ATM deployments in India.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2013 compared with the same period of 2012:

  • Revenues of $189.6 million, a 7% increase from $176.4 million (8% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $14.8 million, a 12% increase from $13.2 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $19.3 million, a 5% increase from $18.3 million (5% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 278 million, a 5% increase from 266 million.
  • Point of sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 674,000 as of March 31, 2013, an 11% increase from approximately 607,000.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 350,000 as of March 31, 2013, a 19% increase from approximately 294,000.

Revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA increases largely resulted from increased prepaid mobile sales in the U.S., expansion of non-mobile content sales, particularly in Germany, and the acquisition of ezi-pay in New Zealand made in November 2012. Declines in the U.K., Australia and Spain partially offset this growth.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2013 compared with the same period of 2012:

  • Revenues of $82.9 million, a 16% increase from $71.4 million (16% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $6.0 million, a 40% increase from $4.3 million (40% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $10.8 million, a 20% increase from $9.0 million (20% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 8.1 million, a 19% increase from 6.8 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 199,000 as of March 31, 2013, a 28% increase from approximately 155,000.

Revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth in the quarter was driven by the 19% increase in total transactions. Increased operating profit was driven by a continued expansion of the network, which grew 28% over the same quarter last year. Money transfer transactions increased 18%. U.S. initiated transfers increased 23% compared to the same quarter last year, including a 26% increase in transfers to Mexico and a 21% increase to non-Mexico corridors. Non-U.S. initiated transfers increased 11%.

Corporate and Other reports $8.2 million of expense for the first quarter 2013 compared with $7.7 million for the first quarter 2012. The increase in corporate expense is primarily from professional fees related to acquisition costs incurred in the quarter.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position

Unrestricted cash on hand was $155.3 million as of March 31, 2013, compared to $191.2 million as of December 31, 2012. Cash decreased mainly as a result of the acquisition of Pure Commerce in January and repayment of debt, partially offset by cash flows generated from operations. Total indebtedness was $291.1 million as of March 31, 2013, compared to $301.3 million as of December 31, 2012.

Guidance

The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the second quarter 2013, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $0.47.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures, such as constant currency, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted cash earnings per share financial measures. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, net income, operating income and earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations. These non-GAAP measures are also an integral part of the Company's internal reporting and performance assessment for executives and senior management. The non-GAAP measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The attached schedules provide a full reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.

(1) Constant currency measures are computed as if foreign currency exchange rates did not change from the prior period. This information is provided to illustrate the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on the Company's results when compared to the prior period.

(2)Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation expenses and other non-operating or non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.

(3) Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign exchange gains or losses, b) goodwill impairment charges, c) gains or losses from the early retirement of debt, d) share-based compensation, e) acquired intangible asset amortization, f) non-cash interest expense, g) non-cash income tax expense, and h) other non-operating or non-recurring items. Adjusted cash earnings per share includes shares potentially issuable in settlement of convertible bonds or other obligations, if the assumed issuances are dilutive to adjusted cash earnings per share. Adjusted cash earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.

(1) As required by U.S. GAAP, the interest cost and amortization of the convertible debt issuance cost are excluded from income for the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share for any period when the convertible debentures, if converted, would be dilutive to earnings per share. Further, the convertible shares are treated as if all were outstanding for the period. Although the assumed conversion of the convertible debentures was not dilutive to the Company's GAAP earnings for the periods presented, it was dilutive to the Company's adjusted cash earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Accordingly, the interest cost and amortization of the convertible debt issuance cost are excluded from income and the convertible shares are treated as if all were outstanding for the period.

(2) Adjusted cash earnings and adjusted cash earnings per share are non-GAAP measures that should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
