Euronet Worldwide Reports Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

LEAWOOD, Kan., Oct. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. ("Euronet" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:EEFT), a leading electronic payments provider, reports third quarter 2014 financial results.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the third quarter 2014 compared with the same period of 2013:

  • Revenues of $453.4 million, a 26% increase from $360.6 million (25% increase on a constant currency(1) basis).
  • Operating income of $50.7 million, an 8% decrease from $55.3 million (9% decrease on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted operating income(2) of $50.7 million, a 41% increase from $36.0 million (40% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA(3) of $73.1 million, a 36% increase from $53.8 million (35% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $35.0 million or $0.64 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $47.9 million or $0.92 diluted earnings per share.
  • Adjusted cash earnings per share(4) of $0.80, a 43% increase from $0.56.
  • Transactions of 655 million, a 13% increase from 582 million.

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

Third quarter 2013 operating income reflects a $19.3 million non-cash gain related to a decrease of a contingent earnout liability recorded in Euronet's EFT Segment, but not paid due to certain targets not being met. Consistent with our prior presentation for the third quarter 2013, adjusted operating income is presented for the consolidated and EFT Segment results to exclude this gain and provide a more useful comparison of the operating results.

"Our third quarter earnings exceeded our expectations, underscored by a new record quarterly adjusted cash EPS of $0.80, a 43% year-over-year increase," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "All three segments contributed to the consolidated double-digit growth across revenue and earnings. EFT's third quarter benefited from seasonally higher transactions made possible by a continued focus on ATM and product expansion. Money transfer growth was a result of solid organic expansion including the full quarter contributions from the Walmart-2-Walmart product and the HiFX acquisition earlier this year. epay's 7% revenue and 2% operating income growth represent the second consecutive quarter of growth, driven by continued demand for non-mobile products. Overall, this was an excellent quarter for our business."

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the third quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $107.5 million, a 29% increase from $83.6 million (28% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $34.2 million, a 23% decrease from $44.6 million (24% decrease on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted operating income of $34.2 million, a 35% increase from $25.3 million (34% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $42.4 million, a 34% increase from $31.6 million (33% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 321 million, a 6% increase from 304 million.
  • Operated 19,808 ATMs as of September 30, 2014, an 11% increase from 17,795.

Revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income growth in the quarter was the result of an 11% expansion of the ATM networks in India and Europe, an increase in the number of point of sale dynamic currency conversion transactions and other value added transactions.

Revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income growth outpaced transaction and ATM growth due to higher sales of value added products which earn a higher margin per transaction relative to other EFT products. Transactions grew 6%, primarily from growth spread across Europe.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the third quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $195.1 million, a 7% increase from $182.6 million (6% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $12.4 million, a 2% increase from $12.1 million (2% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.4 million, a 2% increase from $16.1 million (1% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 320 million, a 19% increase from 269 million.
  • Point of sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 667,000 as of September 30, 2014, a 5% increase from approximately 636,000.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 295,000 as of September 30, 2014, a 1% increase from approximately 291,000.

epay revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was primarily the result of increased sales of non-mobile products, partially offset by certain mobile content transaction declines. Revenue growth outpaced operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth as a result of higher SG&A costs in preparation for the seasonally higher fourth quarter sales and higher incentive expense, partially offset by cost-saving measures implemented in certain markets.

The increase in transactions was largely driven by growth in India, Germany and the Middle East, partially offset by declines in Brazil and the U.K. Transactions grew at a faster pace than revenue due to a higher volume of low margin transactions in India.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the third quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $151.2 million, a 59% increase from $95.3 million (58% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $12.6 million, a 68% increase from $7.5 million (68% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $19.8 million, a 65% increase from $12.0 million (64% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 13.9 million, a 56% increase from 8.9 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 241,000 as of September 30, 2014, a 16% increase from approximately 207,000.

Money transfer revenues, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and transactions increased as a result of organic growth across the existing Ria business and full quarter contributions from the Walmart-2-Walmart product and the HiFX acquisition. Operating income was impacted by $1.6 million of expense related to the write-down of certain customer acquisition costs. Excluding the write-off of customer acquisition costs, operating income and adjusted EBITDA would have grown 89% and 78%, respectively.

Corporate and Other reports $8.5 million of expense for the third quarter 2014 compared with $8.9 million for the third quarter 2013.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position

Unrestricted cash on hand was $451.2 million as of September 30, 2014, compared to $408.4 million as of June 30, 2014. Cash increased primarily as a result of cash flows generated from operations and temporary timing differences in settlements in the epay and money transfer segments, partially offset by debt repayments and cash paid for capital expenditures. Total indebtedness was $378.5 million as of September 30, 2014, compared to $411.1 million as of June 30, 2014. Debt decreased primarily as a result of payments made on the revolving credit facility.

Guidance

The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2014, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $0.72

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 operating income, 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 operating income is defined as operating income excluding goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges, changes in the value of acquisition contingent consideration and non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.

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

(4) Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign currency 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 represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
