Online Resources Posts Third Quarter 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: ORCC

Online Resources Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCC), a leading provider of online financial services, today reported financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

  • Revenue was $38.4 million, compared to $36.8 million in the third quarter of 2010.
  • Net loss available to common stockholders was $1.7 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to a loss of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share, in the third quarter of 2010.
  • Ebitda, a non-GAAP measure, was a $5.7 million, compared to $7.4 million in the same quarter of 2010.
  • Adjusted Ebitda, a non-GAAP measure that adjusts Ebitda for equity compensation expense and other expenses, was $7.1 million, compared to $8.0 million in the prior year period.
  • Core net income, a non-GAAP measure, was $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the same quarter of 2010.

“We again exceeded our revenue and earnings expectations in the third quarter, primarily due to higher than anticipated same-store payment transaction growth in our eCommerce business,” said Joseph L. Cowan, president and chief executive officer of Online Resources. “eCommerce revenue growth of over 20 percent year-over-year continues to outpace the run-off in our Banking bill payment only business.”

“Looking ahead, our fourth quarter guidance reflects a benefit from the October 1 st implementation of the Durbin Amendment reducing debit interchange rates. While we expect that this benefit will continue at declining rates into 2012, we cannot predict the amount or duration of any ongoing benefit until the impact of the legislation on the card acceptance market plays out further. In 2012, we intend to use some of this benefit to invest in technology and the ramp-up of our India operation as we continue to transform our Technology organization,” said Cowan.

Outlook for Fourth Quarter 2011

Online Resources provided the following guidance for the fourth quarter of 2011. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.

  • Revenue for the quarter is expected to be between $36.7 and $38.7 million.
  • Ebitda 1,2 for the quarter is expected to be between $5.3 and $6.8 million
  • Adjusted Ebitda 1,2,5 for the quarter is expected to be between $7.1 and $8.4 million.
  • Core net income 1,3,4,5,6 is expected to be between $0.03 and $0.05 per share.

(1)

  The Company uses non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures, including Ebitda, adjusted Ebitda and core net income, to evaluate performance and establish goals. It believes that these measures are valuable to investors in assessing the Company’s operating results when viewed in conjunction with GAAP results.
 
(2) Ebitda is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense. We expanded our definition of Adjusted Ebitda in the first quarter of 2011. Adjusted Ebitda is now defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, equity compensation expense, reserve for potential legal liability, strategic alternatives process costs, transition costs (including severance, retention, advisory and ORCC India start up costs) and other expense. Some or all of these items may not be applicable in any given reporting period.
 
(3) Core net income is defined as net income available to common stockholders before, on a pre-tax basis unless otherwise noted, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, equity compensation expense, income tax benefit or expense from the change in valuation allowance, income (costs) related to the fair market valuation of certain derivatives and mark-to-market investments, preferred stock accretion related to the redemption premium, reserve for potential legal liability, net of tax, strategic process costs, net of tax, transition costs (including severance, retention, advisory and ORCC India start up costs), net of tax, and all other non-recurring charges. Some or all of these items may not be applicable in any given reporting period.
 
(4) Excludes estimates for amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of $1.1 million, equity compensation expense of $0.7 million and preferred stock accretion related to the redemption premium of $0.4 million.
 
(5) Adjusted Ebitda and core net income exclude $1.0 million in transition costs. These costs are tax-effected in the calculation of core net loss.
 
(6) Core net income per share calculated using estimated shares outstanding of 32.6 million.
