HOUSTON, May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics plc (Nasdaq:CATM) ("Cardtronics" or the "Company"), the world's largest ATM owner/operator, announced today its financial and operational results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Key financial statistics in the first quarter of 2017 as compared to the first quarter of 2016 include:
  • Total revenues of $357.6 million, up 18% from $303.2 million (up 22% on a constant-currency basis), driven by the completion of the DCPayments acquisition on January 6, 2017.
  • ATM operating revenues of $341.8 million, up 17% from $292.1 million (up 21% on a constant-currency basis).
  • GAAP Net Loss of $(0.9) million, or $(0.02) per share, down from GAAP Net Income of $15.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, with the year over year decrease largely attributable to a restructuring charge, acquisition-related costs, and asset impairment costs, in the aggregate totaling nearly $20 million on a pre-tax basis during the first quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.55, down from $0.68.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $71.2 million ($74.0 million on a constant-currency basis), relatively consistent with $73.2 million in the prior year.

"The completion of the largest acquisition in our history contributed to 22% constant-currency revenue growth in the quarter. However, first quarter revenue and earnings were negatively impacted by a series of transitory operating challenges. The operating issues were directly related to software and system conversions in the U.S. and Australia. The results were broadly anticipated, and we believe that we are beginning to move past these challenges. Completing the acquisitions of DCPayments and Spark ATM Systems builds a more diversified business across geographies and customers, and accelerates our journey into expanding services to financial institutions in the year that we exit the U.S. portion of our 7-Eleven relationship. These acquisitions, in combination with other ongoing initiatives, provide the foundation for creating growth and long term shareholder value. We view the first quarter as the most challenging of the year from a financial perspective and reaffirm guidance for the full year," commented Steve Rathgaber, Cardtronics' chief executive officer.

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Completed the acquisition of DirectCash Payments Inc. ("DCPayments"), a leading operator of approximately 25,000 ATMs with operations in Australia, Canada, the U.K., New Zealand, and Mexico.
  • Completed the acquisition of Spark ATM Systems Pty Ltd. ("Spark") an independent deployer of approximately 2,300 ATMs in South Africa.
  • Upon completion of the DCPayments and Spark acquisitions, we now operate in eleven countries on four continents.
  • Substantially completed a global reorganization and cost reduction initiative, resulting in $8.2 million in restructuring charges incurred during the quarter. Coupled with our broader cost optimization initiative, we now anticipate that the restructuring and optimization plan will result in annualized pre-tax savings of at least $35 million in 2018.
  • On April 4, completed an offering of $300.0 million principal amount 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025, the net proceeds of which were used to repay approximately $294.5 million of borrowings under our revolving credit facility that was used to complete the DCPayments acquisition.
  • Secured ATM operating contracts representing over 1,200 locations. These wins included placements at various retail and transit locations, including our expansion into FGC Railways in Spain and over 200 new placements in Australia.
  • Implementing a managed services relationship with Bank of Queensland in Australia for management of nearly 200 ATMs at its branches.
  • Added Top 25 financial institution BMO Harris Bank and another 12 new financial institutions to our Allpoint Network and enabled nearly 1 million cardholders with surcharge-free access to our ATM network.

FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

Consolidated revenues totaled $357.6 million for the first quarter of 2017, representing an 18% increase from $303.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, driven by acquisitions completed during the first quarter. ATM operating revenues were up 17% from the first quarter of 2016. Adjusting for movements in currency exchange rates, ATM operating revenues were up 21% from the first quarter of 2016.

ATM operating revenues in North America decreased 1% in the first quarter of 2017, while ATM operating revenues in Europe & Africa decreased 8% compared to the same period in 2016, adversely impacted by movements in foreign currency exchange rates. On a constant-currency basis, ATM operating revenues in Europe & Africa increased 5%, or 4% excluding acquisitions. The appreciation in the U.S. dollar relative to the British pound significantly impacted the Company's reported revenues and profits in the first quarter. The British pound was on average 13% weaker relative to the U.S. dollar during the first quarter of 2017 compared to the same period a year ago.

The DCPayments acquisition, which includes its operations in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the U.K., and Mexico, contributed $58.9 million in ATM operating revenues and $18.5 million in gross profit to the quarterly results from the acquisition date of January 6, 2017.

GAAP Net Loss in the first quarter of 2017 was $0.9 million compared to GAAP Net Income of $15.4 million during the first quarter of 2016. The GAAP Net Loss was the result of the incurrence of $8.2 million of restructuring expenses during the quarter, as these costs related mostly to employee severance costs, in conjunction with the Company's cost reduction initiative. Additionally, the Company incurred $8.5 million during the first quarter related primarily to professional services associated with the completion and integration of the acquisitions that closed during the first quarter. Also, related to the recently completed acquisitions, the Company's amortization of intangible assets expense was up $5.9 million from the first quarter 2016. Finally, the Company recognized impairments on certain of its long-lived assets and disposals during the quarter, resulting in $3.2 million of loss being recorded. The intangible asset amortization expense along with the restructuring, asset impairment and acquisition-related expenses have been excluded from the Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share in the first quarter of 2017. The Company's GAAP tax rate was 76.8% for the first quarter of 2017 compared to 34.1% in the same period in 2016. The tax rate in the first quarter of 2017 is significantly higher than the same period in 2016 due to $2.4 million of excess tax benefits recognized related to share-based compensation when applied to the Loss before income taxes of $3.8 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2017 totaled $71.2 million ($74.0 million on a constant-currency basis) compared to $73.2 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by changes in currency exchange rates and lower revenues in the U.S., coupled with higher operating costs primarily associated with the Company's U.S. fleet upgrade. The contributions from the acquisition of DCPayments and Spark partially offset these decreases. Adjusted Net Income totaled $25.5 million ($0.55 per diluted share or $0.57 on a constant-currency basis) for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $31.3 million ($0.68 per diluted share) during the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in Adjusted Net Income was largely attributable to the factors discussed above and increased depreciation expense associated with the recent acquisitions and the Company's U.S. fleet upgrade, and incremental interest expense as a result of the additional borrowings under the revolving credit facility in conjunction with the recently completed acquisitions.

LIQUIDITY

The Company had outstanding borrowings of approximately $505 million, resulting in approximately $95 million in available borrowing capacity under its $600 million revolving credit facility due in 2021. Additionally, the Company had $40 million in cash as of March 31, 2017. The Company's other outstanding indebtedness as of March 31, 2017 included $250 million in Senior Notes due 2022 and $288 million Convertible Senior Notes due 2020. The Senior Notes and Convertible Senior Notes had carrying balances of $247 million and $244 million, respectively, and are reflected as long-term debt on the balance sheet, net of unamortized discount and capitalized debt issuance costs.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company's outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility increased due to additional borrowings that were used to fund the DCPayments acquisition in January 2017. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on April 4, 2017, in a private placement offering, the Company issued $300 million in aggregate principal amount of 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (the "2025 Notes"). The net proceeds received from the offering of the 2025 Notes, after the payment of the related expenses, were used to repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility. Subsequent to the issuance of the 2025 Notes, the revolving credit facility was amended to decrease the borrowing capacity from $600 million to $400 million. The revolving credit facility was also amended to include an accordion provision enabling an additional potential borrowing capacity of approximately $100 million under certain conditions.

2017 GUIDANCE

Below is the Company's financial guidance for the full year 2017:
  • Revenues of $1.45 billion to $1.5 billion;
  • Gross profit margin of 33% to 34%;
  • GAAP Net Income of $45 million to $50 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $325 million to $340 million;
  • Depreciation and accretion expense of $110 million to $113 million;
  • Cash interest expense of $34 million to $35 million;
  • Adjusted Net Income of $130 million to $139 million;
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $2.80 to $3.00, based on approximately 46.35 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding; and
  • Capital expenditures of $140 million to $150 million.

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance excludes the impact of certain expenses, as outlined in the reconciliation provided at the end of this earnings release. This guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates for the year of £1.00 U.K. to $1.20 U.S., $20.00 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S., $1.00 Canadian dollar to $0.76 U.S., €1.00 Euros to $1.05 U.S., $1.00 Australian dollar to $0.74 U.S., and R14.29 South African Rand to $1.00 U.S. Additionally, this guidance is based on an estimated non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 28% for the remainder of 2017.

Included in the guidance above is the assumption that the deinstallations of the ATMs at 7-Eleven locations in the U.S. will begin during the third quarter of 2017 and be substantially complete by the end of the year, with a small number of units expected to continue to operate into the first quarter of 2018. Additionally, the guidance assumes that Allpoint and the Citibank brand will come off the 7-Eleven ATMs during the second half of 2017. 7-Eleven in the U.S. accounted for approximately 18% of the Company's consolidated revenues for the year ended 2016. The Company estimates that the incremental gross margin associated with these revenues is approximately 45%, compared to the Company's reported consolidated gross margin of 36% in 2016. While the ATM deinstallation schedule remains subject to change as of the date of this earnings release, the Company currently estimates that the approximate revenue impact associated with the deinstallations is approximately $50 million to $70 million and the approximate impact to gross margin will be approximately $30 million to $35 million in 2017.

These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on the Company.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements contained in this earnings release, which speak only as of the date of this earnings release.

DISCLOSURE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, Free Cash Flow, and certain GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis represent non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in managing and measuring the performance of its business, including setting and measuring incentive based compensation for management. Management believes that the presentation of these measures and the identification of notable, non-cash, and/or (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods enhance an investor's understanding of the underlying trends in the Company's business and provide for better comparability between periods in different years.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation, accretion, and amortization of intangible assets as these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the Company's industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures, and the methods by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes share-based compensation expense, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, certain non-operating expenses, (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods, gains or losses on disposal and impairment of assets, the Company's obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense, and other obligations such as capital expenditures, and includes an adjustment for noncontrolling interests. Adjusted Net Income represents net (loss) income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization of intangible assets, gains or losses on disposal and impairment of assets, share-based compensation expense, certain other expense amounts, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, certain non-operating expenses, and (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods (together, the "Adjustments"). Prior to June 30, 2016, Adjusted Net Income was calculated using an estimated long-term, cross-jurisdictional effective cash tax rate of 32%. Subsequent to the redomicile of the Company's parent company to the U.K., the Company revised the process for determining its non-GAAP tax rate and now utilizes a non-GAAP tax rate derived from the GAAP tax rate adjusted for the net tax effects of the Adjustments, based on the nature and geography of the Adjustments. For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the non-GAAP tax rate used to calculate Adjusted Net Income was approximately 28.2%. For the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company used its previous estimated long-term cross-jurisdictional tax rate of 32%. Adjusted Net Income per diluted share is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Free Cash Flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities less payments for capital expenditures, including those financed through direct debt but excluding acquisitions. The Free Cash Flow measure does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as mandatory principal payments on portions of the Company's long-term debt. Management calculates certain GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis using the average foreign currency exchange rates applicable in the corresponding period of the previous year and applying these rates to the measures in the current reporting period. Management uses GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis to assess performance and eliminate the effect foreign currency exchange rates have on comparability between periods.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net (loss) income, cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities, or other income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures used herein to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in tabular form at the end of this earnings release.
