31 Days ago

LEAWOOD, Kan., July 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (“Euronet” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EEFT), a leading electronic payments provider, reports second quarter 2019 financial results.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the second quarter 2019 compared with the same period of 2018:

  • Revenues of $691.9 million, an 11% increase from $622.2 million (16% increase on a constant currency(1) basis).
  • Operating income of $117.9 million, a 30% increase from $90.4 million (38% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted operating income(2) of $116.6 million, a 29% increase from $90.4 million (36% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA(3) of $150.4 million, a 24% increase from $121.2 million (31% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $68.2 million or $1.25 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $43.7 million or $0.82 diluted earnings per share.
  • Adjusted earnings per share(4) of $1.69, a 28% increase from $1.32.
  • Transactions of 1.15 billion, a 19% increase from 968 million.

"Our efforts to expand our network, state-of-the-art technology and broad product portfolio continue to result in strong double-digit earnings growth - including adjusted earnings per share of $1.69 for the second quarter, a 28% year-over-year increase," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "This strong growth includes double-digit constant currency earnings growth from all three segments. EFT continued to benefit from new ATM and product deployments.  Money transfer delivered a solid quarter with continued success in both the physical and digital channels.  And, epay continued to benefit from expansion of digital media products."

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2019 compared with the same period or date in 2018:

  • Revenues of $231.9 million, a 19% increase from $194.9 million (26% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $76.5 million, a 45% increase from $52.9 million (53% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted operating income of $75.2 million, a 42% increase from $52.9 million (50% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $93.0 million, a 34% increase from $69.3 million (42% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 752 million, an 11% increase from 677 million.
  • Operated 46,636 ATMs as of June 30, 2019, a 13% increase from 41,205.

Double-digit constant currency revenue, adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was largely the result of a 13% year-over-year increase in active ATMs, an 11% increase in transactions, and the expansion of Visa dynamic currency conversion (DCC) to worldwide ATM cash withdrawals. The increase in transactions was primarily from growth in Europe and Asia - including an increase in traditional cash withdrawals as well as the number of value-added transactions, such as DCC, domestic and international surcharge, and foreign currency dispensing transactions - on both ATMs and point-of-sale terminals.

Year-over-year ATM growth is the result of more than 5,800 new high-value ATM deployments in Europe and Asia, including approximately 1,000 outsourcing ATMs in Asia, and 100 more low-margin ATMs in India, partially offset by de-installation of 500 unprofitable ATMs at YourCash.

Adjusted operating income was reduced by a $1.3 million post-acquisition adjustment.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2019 compared with the same period or date in 2018:

  • Revenues of $184.2 million, an 11% increase from $166.5 million (16% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $17.6 million, an 8% increase from $16.3 million (13% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $19.4 million, a 7% increase from $18.2 million (12% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 369 million, a 40% increase from 264 million.
  • Point-of-sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 700,000 as of June 30, 2019, a 2% increase from approximately 688,000.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 325,000 as of June 30, 2019, a 3% increase from approximately 315,000.

epay double-digit constant currency revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was primarily from continued digital media growth and the benefit of a certain promotion where revenue was recorded on a gross versus net basis.

Transaction growth was the result of increases across Europe and strong contributions from India, which included a large volume of low-margin mobile top-up transactions.

epay terminal and location counts for the prior period have been restated to conform with the current presentation which eliminates intra-segment counts.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2019 compared with the same period or date in 2018:

  • Revenues of $276.8 million, a 6% increase from $261.7 million (9% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $35.3 million, an 8% increase from $32.7 million (12% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $43.4 million, a 7% increase from $40.7 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 28.9 million, a 7% increase from 26.9 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 385,000 as of June 30, 2019, an 8% increase from approximately 355,000.

Constant currency revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was driven by strong contributions from international remittances, partially offset by limited growth from the XE business stemming from Brexit uncertainties and a decline in U.S. domestic transfers as a result of additional ID requirements on domestic transactions.

Money transfers grew 8% and non-transfer transactions, such as currency exchange and check cashing, grew 4%, resulting in total transaction growth of 7%.

Corporate and Other reports $11.5 million of expense for both the second quarter 2019 and the second quarter 2018.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position

Unrestricted cash on hand was $1.56 billion as of June 30, 2019, compared to $1.22 billion as of March 31, 2019.  The increase in cash resulted from cash generated from operations and the issuance of €600 million senior notes, partially offset by the cash payment for the remaining $352.5 million principal amount of 1.50% convertible notes which were redeemed on May 28, 2019, as well as settlement timing in the business.

Total indebtedness was $1.14 billion as of June 30, 2019, compared to $787 million as of March 31, 2019. The increase in debt was primarily the result of the issuance of €600 million senior notes, partially offset by the redemption of the remaining $352.5 million principal amount of 1.50% convertible notes.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification No. 842 ("ASC 842") to record operating leases on its consolidated balance sheet.  As of June 30, 2019, the Company reported $376.3 million in net Right of Use Lease Assets with a similar amount recorded in Operating Lease Liabilities, both current and long-term.  There was no impact on the consolidated statement of operations.

Guidance
The Company currently expects adjusted earnings per share for the third quarter 2019, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $2.80.

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 operating income is defined as operating income excluding a post-acquisition adjustment.

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

(4) 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 and intangible asset 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, h) a post-acquisition adjustment and i) other non-operating or non-recurring items. In addition, the diluted weighted average shares outstanding has been adjusted to reflect the total number of shares issued in connection with the conversion of the 1.50% convertible notes during the second quarter of 2019 and the effect of unrecognized share-based compensation.  Adjusted earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
