Higher One Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ONE) (“Higher One”) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012. The company reported revenue of $49.8 million, up 19% from $41.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact from the customer credit plan in the fourth quarter of 2011, revenue growth for the fourth quarter of 2012 would have been 7%. Full year 2012 revenue came in at the high end of guidance at $197.7 million, up 12% from $176.3 million in 2011. Excluding the impact from the customer credit plan, revenue growth for 2012 would have been 9%. The year-over-year revenue growth was primarily attributable to an increase in the number of higher education institutions that have contracted for the company’s services and the inclusion of the recently acquired Campus Labs in the results.
Mark Volchek, Chief Executive Officer, said, “Higher One continues to be highly focused on reducing the cost of education by improving administrative efficiencies, providing financial literacy and low-cost financial services to college students, and improving graduation rates through better data collection and analysis. We made significant progress in 2012 bolstering our capabilities in all three of those areas. Despite the fact that the macro environment has put pressure on our financial results in the near-term, we are making investments in the business that positions us well for long-term growth.”
Higher One reported GAAP net income of $36.9 million for 2012, and non-GAAP adjusted net income, which excludes certain non-recurring or non-cash items, of $38.8 million. During the quarter, we recorded a benefit of $7.6 million due to a reduction in the estimated amount to be paid under the earn-out related to the Campus Labs acquisition. GAAP diluted EPS was $0.65 for the year. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS was $0.68 for 2012, at the high end of the company’s previously disclosed guidance range. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA came in at $68.3 million for 2012.
