Official Payments Reports Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Results

Official Payments Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPAY), a leading provider of electronic payment solutions for the biller direct market, today released results for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Results of Operations

First Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, Official Payments reported revenues from Continuing Operations of $34.8 million, a 5.7% increase over the same quarter last year. Net loss from Continuing Operations was $1.6 million, or $0.10 per fully diluted share, compared to net loss from Continuing Operations of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per fully diluted share, for the same quarter last year. Continuing Operations include Payment Solutions, and our VSA operations, which we are winding down. On a standalone basis, our Payment Solutions business reported quarterly revenues of $34.3 million, or a 5.6% increase over the same quarter last year.

Our general, administrative, selling and marketing expenses, which support our Continuing Operations, were $9.2 million, an increase of $3.3 million, or 55.0%, from the same quarter last year. The quarter included a $1.5 million restructuring expense related to the relocation of our corporate headquarters from Reston, Virginia to Norcross, Georgia.

Management’s Comments

Alex P. Hart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Official Payments Holdings, Inc. stated, “The first quarter was very encouraging, and I believe that we will continue to execute on a number of fronts to improve even more. During the quarter our transaction volume grew 3.6% as compared with the prior year quarter and our average transaction size grew 8.1%. More importantly, our Payment Solutions net revenue increased $2.8 million or 30.6% as compared with the prior year quarter.”

Definition and Reconciliation

We use the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations and Payment Solutions net revenue. Official Payments’ management believes these measures are useful for evaluating our performance against the performance of peer companies within the electronic payments industry, and that these measures provide investors with additional transparency with respect to financial measures used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. Our management believes that Payment Solutions net revenue provides additional information about our business, as we wind-down our VSA operations. We also use Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations, together with other criteria, in our executive compensation program. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for the reported results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or US GAAP. Our definitions used to calculate non-GAAP financial measures may differ from those used by other companies.
