  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $29.1 million or $0.53 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $7.2 million or $0.13 diluted earnings per share.

  • Transactions of 711 million, a 12% increase from 634 million.

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

"We had a strong start to 2016, delivering adjusted cash earnings per share growth of 23%, the 13th consecutive quarter we have achieved double-digit adjusted cash EPS growth," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "Each of our three segments delivered constant currency operating income growth as a result of our continued focus on adding more products, more devices and more locations in more countries.  Money transfer continued to deliver double-digit organic growth, including growth from Walmart-2-Walmart, as well as from the June 2015 acquisition of IME.  EFT achieved growth from continued ATM expansion, and epay benefited from continued increases in sales of non-mobile content."

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2016 compared with the same period or date in 2015:

  • Revenues of $86.6 million, a 16% increase from $74.7 million (21% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $13.3 million, a 17% increase from $11.4 million (18% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $22.1 million, a 19% increase from $18.6 million (22% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 370 million, a 23% increase from 302 million.
  • Operated 24,761 ATMs as of March 31, 2016, a 19% increase from 20,863.

Constant currency revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was the result of a 19% expansion of the ATM network and a 23% growth in transactions, primarily in Europe and India, including an increase in the number of value added transactions on both ATMs and point-of-sale terminals.

The year-over-year change in ATM count was due to the deployment of approximately 3,900 new ATMs across India and Europe.  This increase includes approximately 2,600 ATMs from one ATM driving contract in India which earns minimal revenue and gross profit per ATM or transaction; while these 2,600 ATMs will only marginally contribute to operating income, the Company anticipates a future beneficial relationship with the bank.  Partially offsetting the growth in the number of ATMs year-over-year was the previously mentioned termination of approximately 1,200 loss-generating ATMs in China and the temporary winterization of approximately 150 more seasonal ATMs in the first quarter 2016 versus the prior year.  Excluding the low margin India ATMs and the increase in winterized ATMs, the segment added more than 500 ATMs during the quarter. Excluding the Chinese contract termination, ATMs and transactions would have grown 26% and 32%, respectively.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2016 compared with the same period or date in 2015:

  • Revenues of $170.1 million, a 3% decrease from $175.9 million (1% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $15.8 million, a 1% increase from $15.6 million (6% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $18.9 million, a 1% increase from $18.8 million (5% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 322 million, a 1% increase from 318 million.
  • Point-of-sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 658,000 as of March 31, 2016, a 2% decrease from approximately 672,000 as of March 31, 2015.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 301,000 as of March 31, 2016, a 2% decrease from approximately 308,000.

epay constant currency 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.

The increase in transactions was largely driven by growth in India, Germany, Turkey, Australia, Poland and the Middle East , partially offset by declines in Brazil, North America and the U.K.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the first quarter 2016 compared with the same period or date in 2015:

  • Revenues of $181.6 million, a 25% increase from $144.8 million (27% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $21.5 million, a 56% increase from $13.8 million (59% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $28.8 million, a 40% increase from $20.5 million (44% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 18.7 million, a 35% increase from 13.9 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 310,000 as of March 31, 2016, a 26% increase from approximately 246,000.

Money Transfer constant currency revenue, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and transaction growth was driven by an increase in Ria's organic business including double-digit transaction growth in Europe, Asia Pacific, the US, and  Walmart-2-Walmart as well as the added benefit from the June 2015 acquisition of IME.

Money transfers grew 39% and non-transfer transactions such as bill payment and international mobile recharge grew 5%, resulting in total transaction growth of 35%.

Corporate and Other reports $8.7 million of expense for the first quarter 2016 compared with $8.6 million for the first quarter 2015.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position
Unrestricted cash on hand was $548.5 million as of March 31, 2016, compared to $457.5 million as of December 31, 2015.  Cash increased as a result of cash flows generated from operations, revolver borrowings to fund ATM cash fills and the timing of payments in the epay and money transfer segments, partially offset by cash paid for share repurchases and capital expenditures.  Total indebtedness was $497.8 million as of March 31, 2016, compared to $423.7 million as of December 31, 2015. Debt increased primarily from revolver borrowings to fund ATM cash fills and share repurchases.  In the first quarter of 2016, the Company repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares for a total purchase price of approximately $75.6 million of the $100 million board-authorized share repurchase plan. 

Guidance
The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the second quarter 2016, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $0.90

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 financial measures, adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted cash earnings per share. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, revenues, 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 financial 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 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.

(3) Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding, to the extent incurred in the period, 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.
