Euronet Worldwide Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

LEAWOOD, Kan., Oct. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. ("Euronet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:EEFT), a leading electronic payments provider, reports third quarter 2016 financial results.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the third quarter 2016 compared with the same period of 2015:

  • Revenues of $524.0 million, a 9% increase from $481.4 million (9% increase on a constant currency(1) basis).
  • Operating income of $90.5 million, a 29% increase from $70.3 million (27% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $114.1 million, a 25% increase from $91.2 million (24% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $60.7 million or $1.11 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $31.3 million or $0.57 diluted earnings per share.
  • Adjusted earnings per share(3) of $1.35, a 30% increase from $1.04.
  • Transactions of 823 million, a 9% increase from 757 million.

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

"For the third quarter, our business produced an exceptional 30% growth in adjusted earnings per share," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "I am extremely pleased with our 15th consecutive quarter of double-digit adjusted EPS growth as it is particularly impressive given certain unusual benefits included in the prior year results. The Money Transfer Segment continued to deliver strong growth across our markets while continuing to invest in the HiFX and XE platforms in advance of the November XE migration. The epay results remained consistent with the prior year quarter with non-mobile content sales offsetting certain mobile declines. EFT delivered very strong results which were driven by ATM network expansion. And, the EFT segment's growth will be enhanced with our recent acquisition of YourCash."

Segment and Other Results

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

  • Revenues of $152.6 million, a 28% increase from $118.9 million (29% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $59.4 million, a 47% increase from $40.3 million (47% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $69.6 million, a 44% increase from $48.4 million (44% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 488 million, a 22% increase from 401 million.
  • Operated 29,276 ATMs as of September 30, 2016, a 39% increase from 21,128.

Constant currency revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was the result of a 39% expansion of the ATM network and a 22% 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 ATMs operated was due to the activation of approximately 8,000 new ATMs across India and Europe. This increase includes approximately 5,350 ATMs from low revenue and margin ATM driving contracts in India and approximately 175 fewer winterized ATMs than the same period in the prior year. Excluding the low-margin India ATMs and the difference in winterized devices, ATMs would have grown 12% on a year-over-year basis.

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

  • Revenues of $167.2 million, a 4% decrease from $174.6 million (3% decrease on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $14.8 million, a 1% increase from $14.7 million (consistent on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $17.5 million, a 1% increase from $17.4 million (consistent on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 314 million, a 7% decrease from 337 million.
  • Point-of-sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 647,000 as of September 30, 2016, a 3% decrease from approximately 665,000.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 304,000 as of September 30, 2016, a 3% decrease from approximately 312,000.

epay constant currency revenue declined primarily as a result of exceptionally high promotional volume in the prior year and certain mobile transaction declines, largely offset by increased sales of non-mobile products. Consistent year-over-year operating income and adjusted EBITDA reflect the impact of the higher-margin non-mobile products and effective expense management offsetting mobile product declines.

The decline in transactions was largely driven by declines in India where a large volume of lower value mobile transactions are being replaced with a smaller volume of higher value non-mobile transactions. Transactions declined at a faster rate than revenues primarily due to the transaction shifts in India.

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

  • Revenues of $204.6 million, a 9% increase from $188.2 million (9% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $25.2 million, a 6% increase from $23.7 million (4% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $32.4 million, a 6% increase from $30.7 million (4% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 21.3 million, a 12% increase from 19.0 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 314,000 as of September 30, 2016, a 9% increase from approximately 287,000.

Ria's remittance business grew constant currency revenue 11%, benefiting from double-digit transaction growth rates from all geographic regions - Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States, including the Walmart2Walmart product. Tempering the double-digit Ria growth was single-digit revenue growth from HiFX as a result of lighter trading in a period of sustained devaluation of the British pound following the Brexit vote. When weighted with the Ria growth, the net resulted in a 9% money transfer segment revenue growth. Moreover, the prior year third quarter money transfer results included an unusual FX gain of approximately $2.0 million. Excluding this gain from prior year results, the Money Transfer Segment's constant currency operating income and adjusted EBITDA would have grown 13% and 11%, respectively. The segment's operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth rates were also tempered by investments in the money transfer business to accommodate the November migration of the XE business to HiFX's platform, and in the Asia Pacific region which is growing at strong double-digit rates in significant markets.

Money transfers grew 13% and non-transfer transactions, such as currency exchange and check cashing transactions, grew 1%, resulting in total transaction growth of 12%.

Corporate and Other reports $8.9 million of expense for the third quarter 2016 compared with $8.4 million for the third quarter 2015. The increase in Corporate expense is largely from higher short- and long-term compensation expense related to improved Company performance. 

Balance Sheet and Financial Position
Unrestricted cash on hand was $661.3 million as of September 30, 2016, compared to $680.1 million as of June 30, 2016. Cash decreased primarily as a result of revolver payments, cash paid for capital expenditures and taxes, as well as the timing of settlements in the epay and money transfer segments, partially offset by cash flows generated from operations.

Total indebtedness was $537.9 million as of September 30, 2016, compared to $623.9 million as of June 30, 2016. Debt decreased primarily from revolver payments resulting from lower seasonal ATM cash requirements.

Guidance
The Company currently expects adjusted earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2016, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $1.07

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 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.

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of its forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for GAAP and the related GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation, including adjustments that would be necessary for currency exchange rate fluctuations and other charges reflected in the Company's reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.

(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 or income under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.

(3) Adjusted 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 earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
