“We are extremely pleased to achieve non-GAAP net income for the first time in USAT’s history,” stated Stephen P. Herbert, chairman and CEO of USA Technologies, “and to deliver that target with such strength that we achieved GAAP net income as well, even after absorbing a sizable warrant adjustment for the quarter. The aggressive actions taken as part of our turnaround plan communicated to shareholders last year are clearly visible in our results, with exceptional improvements in both gross profit margin and operating margin this quarter. In addition, the inherent value of the recurring revenue base that we are building with every new connection is evident in the steady improvement in revenues over the last quarters and the $1.8 million base of Adjusted EBITDA reported for the second quarter—a great improvement from just one year ago.
