NetSpend Holdings, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues were $89.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of approximately 17% over the $76.8 million of revenues recorded in the same quarter of 2011. This increase was substantially driven by the increase in direct deposit accounts, and to a lesser extent, the expansion of product features across NetSpend’s direct deposit customer base. Interchange revenue represented approximately 22% of total revenue during the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Net income was $10.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 5% over the net income of $9.6 million recorded in the quarter ended December 31, 2011. NetSpend’s net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 includes an aggregate of $10.8 million of net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and settlement gains and other losses. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 also includes approximately $3.0 million in stock-based compensation expense. For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, the comparable amount of net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and settlement gains and other losses was $11.2 million. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 also includes approximately $2.4 million in stock-based compensation expense.

2013 Outlook

NetSpend reported that it expects full year 2013 revenue to be between $414 and $424 million, its adjusted EBITDA to fall between $119 and $125 million and its adjusted net income per fully diluted share to be between $0.76 and $0.81.

The foregoing expectations reflect the following assumptions:

  • An effective tax rate of approximately 40%;
  • Non-cash equity compensation of between approximately $14 and $16 million;
  • Cash outlays for capital expenditures for the full year of between approximately $10 and $12 million;
  • An effective cost of debt capital of approximately 3.0%; and
  • Fully diluted shares outstanding for the full year of approximately 84 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement NetSpend’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), this press release includes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not measures of financial performance under GAAP. Accordingly, they should not be considered a substitute for net income, operating income or other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding underlying trends in NetSpend’s business and provides improved comparability between periods in different years.
