Vantiv Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Vantiv, Inc. (NYSE: VNTV) (Vantiv or “the Company”) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Revenue increased 17% to $469.6 million as compared to $402.6 million in the prior year. Net revenue increased 20% to $260.4 million as compared to $216.9 million in the prior year. Cash net income increased 48% to $68.0 million as compared to $46.0 million in the prior year. Adjusted cash net income per share was $0.32. (See Schedule 2 for cash net income and Schedules 6 and 7 for GAAP net income reconciliation to cash net income.)

On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Vantiv, Inc. was $23.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the prior year. GAAP net income in the prior year included $13.8 million of costs related to charges incurred in connection with refinancing of indebtedness, or $0.13 loss on a diluted per share basis.

Transactions increased 21% and net revenue increased 20% primarily driven by a 29% increase in transactions in the Merchant Services segment. Adjusted EBITDA increased 20% to $131.0 million as compared to $109.5 million in the prior year. (See Schedule 8 for reconciliation from GAAP income from operations to adjusted EBITDA.)

“Our second quarter results reflect outstanding performance across our business,” president and chief executive officer Charles Drucker said. “Vantiv employees continue to execute on our new sales and channel initiatives to drive growth in net revenue and profitability.”

Merchant Services

Net revenue increased 26% to $176.9 million as compared to $140.2 million in the prior year, primarily due to a 29% increase in transactions. Organic growth and new business contributed to strong transaction growth for the quarter. Net revenue per transaction declined by 5% as compared to the first quarter, as anticipated, primarily due to the impact of a new large national merchant processing contract. Sales and marketing expenses increased 21% to $63.6 million as compared to $52.6 million in the prior year in line with the growth in net revenue.
