"USA Technologies continued its strong connection and revenue growth and is executing in the market to drive cashless and mobile payments to self-service retail locations," said Stephen P. Herbert, USA Technologies' chairman and chief executive officer. "As we move further into our fiscal year, we expect to see both continued top line growth and expanding profitability as we drive wider adoption of our ePort Connect service to vending, kiosks, and other unattended retail locations. Our customers continue to see compelling economics which underpins their decisions to upgrade 100% of their locations to our technology. Further, as the market advances we expect our ePort Interactive Service, which enables a more robust consumer experience and yields improved performance at the location, to expand market share."

Fiscal 2017 Outlook

For full fiscal year 2017, management expects to add between 115,000 and 125,000 net new connections for the year, bringing total connections to our service to a range of 544,000 to 554,000 and expects total revenue to be between $95 million and $100 million. We also expect to have year-over-year increases of adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income.

Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of USAT's management, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to USAT's management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including but not limited to, the ability of management to accurately predict or forecast future financial results, including earnings or taxable income of USAT, or increased revenues at a customer location; the incurrence by USAT of any unanticipated or unusual non-operational expenses which would require us to divert our cash resources from achieving our business plan; the ability of USAT to retain key customers from whom a significant portion of its revenues is derived; the ability of USAT to compete with its competitors to obtain market share; whether USAT's customers continue to utilize USAT's transaction processing and related services, as our customer agreements are generally cancelable by the customer on thirty to sixty days' notice; the ability of USAT to raise funds in the future through the sales of securities or debt financings in order to sustain its operations if an unexpected or unusual non-operational event would occur; the ability of USAT to use available data to predict future market conditions, consumer behavior and any level of cashless usage; the ability to prevent a security breach of our systems or services or third party services or systems utilized by us; whether any patents issued to USAT will provide USAT with any competitive advantages or adequate protection for its products, or would be challenged, invalidated or circumvented by others; the ability of USAT to operate without infringing or violating the intellectual property rights of others; whether USAT would be able to sell sufficient ePort hardware to third party leasing companies as part of the QuickStart program in order to improve cash flows from operations; whether USAT's remediation efforts in connection with the control deficiencies that resulted in a material weakness in USAT's internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2016 would be effective; whether USAT experiences additional material weaknesses in its internal controls over financial reporting in future periods, and USAT is not able to accurately or timely report its financial condition or results of operations; and whether USAT's existing or anticipated customers purchase, rent or utilize ePort devices or our other products or services in the future at levels currently anticipated by USAT.

See discussion of Non-GAAP financial measures later in this document
 

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations between non-GAAP and GAAP measures are set forth above in Financial Schedules (D) and (H).

The following non-GAAP financial measures are discussed herein: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net earnings (loss) per common share - basic and diluted. The presentation of these additional financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or superior to, or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), including the net income or net loss of USAT or net cash provided/used by operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with USAT's net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not required by or defined under GAAP and may be materially different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. USAT has provided above in Financial Schedules (D) and (H) the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

As used herein, non-GAAP net income (loss) represents GAAP net income (loss) excluding costs or benefits relating to any adjustment for fair value of warrant liabilities and non-cash portions of the Company's income tax benefit (provision), non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of the VendScreen business, and professional fees incurred in connection with the class action litigation and the SLC investigation. Non-GAAP net earnings (loss) per common share - diluted is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income (loss) applicable to common shares by the number of diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Management believes that non-GAAP net income (loss) is an important measure of USAT's business. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required by or defined under GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). The presentation of this financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including the net income or net loss of the Company or net cash used in operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with the Company's net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not a substitute for or a measure of the Company's profitability or net earnings. Management believes that non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net earnings (loss) per share are important measures of the Company's business. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure serves as a useful metric for our management and investors because they enable a better understanding of the long-term performance of our core business and facilitate comparisons of our operating results over multiple periods, and when taken together with the corresponding GAAP (United States' Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures and our reconciliations, enhance investors' overall understanding of our current and future financial performance. Additionally, the Company utilizes non-GAAP net income (loss) as a metric in its executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.

As used herein, Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of the VendScreen business, professional fees incurred in connection with the class action litigation incurred during the third quarter of the prior fiscal year, impairment charges related to our EnergyMiser asset trademarks, and change in fair value of warrant liabilities and stock-based compensation expense. We have excluded the non-operating item, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, because it represents a non-cash gain or charge that is not related to the Company's operations. We have excluded the non-cash expense, stock-based compensation, as it does not reflect the cash-based operations of the Company. We have excluded the non-recurring costs and expenses incurred in connection with the VendScreen transaction in order to allow more accurate comparison of the financial results to historical operations. We have excluded the professional fees incurred in connection with the class action litigation as well as the trademark impairment charges because we believe that they represent a charge that is not related to the Company's operations. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required by or defined under GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). The presentation of this financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including the net income or net loss of the Company or net cash provided/used by operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with the Company's net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not a substitute for or a measure of the Company's profitability or net earnings. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it is useful to investors as a measure of comparative operating performance. Additionally, the Company utilizes Adjusted EBITDA as a metric in its executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.
