USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:
), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless, cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for self-serve, small-ticket retail industries, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.
Stephen P. Herbert, Chairman and CEO of USA Technologies, commented: “Our Fiscal 2012 results reflect the commitment we made to shareholders in January of this year to sharply accelerate our path toward profitability. With every new connection and customer win we are building a reliable stream of recurring revenues and strengthening our pipeline for future growth. While approximately $3.2 million in expenses related to the proxy contest and CEO separation clearly impacted our results this fiscal year, they did not stop the fundamental progress we are making in growing revenues and expanding our footprint of connections and the value of those connections for our customers in the small ticket, unattended retail market.”
Fiscal 2012 highlights, compared to the prior year, included:
- 27% increase in total revenues to $29.0 million;
- 42% increase in license and transaction fee revenues (“recurring revenues”) to $23.4 million, representing 81% of total revenues for the 2012 year;
- 38% increase in connections to its ePort Connect® service, from 119,000 at the end of Fiscal 2011 to 164,000 as of June 30, 2012; as well as a 43% increase in the dollar value of transactions processed through its ePort Connect service during the fiscal year; and,
- 69% increase in new customers to USAT’s ePort Connect service during the year, for 3,300 customers as of June 30, 2012.
In addition, Fiscal 2012 net loss, which includes a charge of $2.2 million in selling, general and administrative expenses related to the proxy contest that took place in the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2012 and approximately $975,000 related to the CEO separation, narrowed to ($5.2) million, compared to ($6.5) million for Fiscal 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes these items as well as warrant liability adjustments and the impairment charge for intangible assets in Fiscal 2011 in order to track the operational progress of the business, non-GAAP net loss narrowed to ($3.8) million compared to ($5.1) million for Fiscal 2011 (see Non-GAAP Reconciliation table).
