CHERRY HILL, N.J., Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Access to Money, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AEMI), one of the largest providers and non-bank operators of ATMs in the United States, reports its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Highlights for the Third Quarter 2010: Net sales for third quarter 2010 were $6.9 million compared to $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2009 Operating income for the third quarter 2010 was $647,000 compared to $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2009 Cost of sales improved to $4.0 million from $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2009 Selling, general and administrative expenses improved to $2.3 million from $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2009 Net loss for the third quarter 2010 was $729,000, or ($0.03) per basic share, compared to a net loss of $2.6 million or ($0.12) per share for the same period 2009. Net loss for the quarter was impacted by a $3.1 million change in the (gain/loss) in warrant value between the periods. Excluding the non-cash (gain/loss) on warrant value and loss on debt extinguishment, the net loss for the third quarter 2010 would have been $421,000 or ($0.02) per basic share Adjusted EBITDA was $1.2 million compared with $1.7 million in the third quarter 2009 Transaction-based sales were $19.7 million for the quarter compared with $21.8 million in the corresponding period in 2009 Average gross sale per withdrawal transaction was $2.44 for the quarter compared with $2.47 a year ago Average commission per withdrawal transaction for the third quarter was $1.77 compared with $1.73 during last year's comparable period Average net sale per withdrawal was $0.67 compared to $0.74 a year ago Average number of transacting machines at the end of the quarter was 10,747 compared with an average of 11,233 as of September 30, 2009 Highlights for the Nine Months 2010: Net sales for nine months 2010 were $21.7 million compared with $22.6 million in the nine months of 2009 Operating income for nine months 2010 was $2.3 million compared with $2.8 million in the nine months of 2009 Cost of sales was $11.7 million compared to $11.4 million in the corresponding period of 2009 Selling, general and administrative expenses improved to $7.7 million from $8.3 million in the year-ago nine-month period Net income for the nine months 2010 was $604,000, or $0.03 per basic share, compared to a net loss of $6.5 million, or ($0.30) per share for the first nine months of 2009. The $7.1 million improvement was impacted by an $8.5 million change in the gain/loss in warrant value between the first nine months of 2010 compared to the corresponding period in 2009. Excluding the non-cash gain on warrant value and loss on debt extinguishment, net loss for the nine months 2010 would have been $1.4 million or ($0.06) per basic share Adjusted EBITDA was $3.9 million compared with $4.4 million for the nine months of 2009 Transaction-based sales were $60.9 million for the nine months compared with $64.4 million in the corresponding period in 2009 Average gross sale per withdrawal transaction was $2.46 for the nine months compared with $2.43 for the year-ago nine-month period Average commission per withdrawal transaction for the nine-month period was $1.76 compared with $1.74 during last year's comparable period Average net sale per withdrawal was $0.70 compared to $0.69 a year ago Average number of transacting machines for the nine months 2010 was 10,915 compared with 11,329 in the year-ago nine -month period Richard Stern, President and CEO of Access to Money said, "We were very pleased to have been able to successfully refinance a large portion of our existing debt with Sovereign/Santander in September. This transaction was especially significant given the current economic environment and the difficulty that similarly situated companies have had obtaining bank financing. The cost savings associated with this refinancing improves our cash flow and will allow us greater flexibility to pursue new business opportunities. In addition, we were also gratified to complete the simultaneous warrant exchange which further improved our capital structure. The exchange will provide investors with greater clarity in assessing our financial results since we will no longer have to account for many of the cumbersome reporting issues associated with the outstanding warrants.

"The third quarter results reflect the full impact of the loss of a major account earlier this year, including some of the one-time expenses associated with removing those machines. In addition, not all of the cost reduction measures we have implemented were effective for the full quarter. We expect to see the full benefit of these reductions to SG&A and cost of sales in the quarters ahead. Finally, we booked contracts for approximately 90 new full placement machines this quarter, either through our Dunkin Donuts relationship or other programs, many of which are just being installed or were installed during the latter part of the quarter. The continued benefits of placing these terminals along with continued successful sales efforts should offset the placements we lost earlier this year." Mr. Stern concluded, "As we near the completion of the year with an improved balance sheet and leaner cost structure, we continue to seek new opportunities to strengthen our business." Use of Non-GAAP Measures This earnings release includes financial information in accordance with U.S.

generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), as well as non-GAAP financial measures for the three- and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009.

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss) per basic and diluted shares, and Adjusted EBITDA. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release may be different from, and, therefore, not comparable to, similar measures used by other companies. The Company's non-GAAP measures of net income/(loss) and net income/(loss) per basic and diluted share used in this release adjust for the change in warrant valuation and loss on debt extinguishment. Its non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA removes the impact of its debt related interest expense, fair value adjustments of warrants, loss on debt extinguishment, amortization and depreciation, share-based compensation expenses, and taxes from its net income/(loss).

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of its core business operating results. It is also believed that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures when assessing performance, planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to its historical performance and its competitors' operating results. Further, certain of the financial covenants in the Company's credit facility are based on Adjusted EBITDA. Compliance with these and other financial covenants in the Company's credit facility is particularly important given the materiality of the facility to the Company's day-to-day operations. Thus, management believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

The tables below present a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss) and non-GAAP net income/(loss) per basic and diluted share, to GAAP net income/(loss) and GAAP net income/(loss) per basic and diluted share, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2010 and 2009.
