Cardtronics Announces Third Quarter 2011 Results

HOUSTON, Nov. 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CATM) (the "Company"), the world's largest retail ATM owner, today announced its financial and operational results for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Key financial and operational statistics in the third quarter of 2011 as compared to the third quarter of 2010 include (with some statistics showing the results excluding the contribution from the EDC acquisition, which closed on July 25, 2011):

  • Total transactions increased by 28% (up by 20% excluding the contribution from the EDC acquisition)
  • Total cash withdrawal transactions per ATM increased by 19%
  • Total transactions per ATM increased by 17%
  • Operating gross profit per ATM increased by 9%

Effects of foreign currency exchange rate movements had an insignificant impact on reported revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share during the quarter.

Please refer to the "Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Information" contained later in this release for definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share and Free Cash Flow. For additional financial information, including reconciliations to comparable GAAP measures, please refer to the supplemental schedules of selected financial information at the end of this release.

"Our third quarter results were very strong, driven by impressive organic revenue growth of 12% and a nice contribution from our recently completed EDC acquisition," commented Steve Rathgaber, chief executive officer. "With our continued solid execution of our core business strategy along with complementary business expansion opportunities, we are very excited about the Company's future growth prospects."

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

For the third quarter of 2011, consolidated revenues totaled $165.1 million, representing a 21% increase from the $136.6 million in consolidated revenues generated during the third quarter of 2010. Of the 21% year-over-year increase, 9% was attributable to the inclusion of EDC's operations into the Company's consolidated results for 68 days in the quarter. The remaining 12% organic revenue increase is attributable to a combination of the following: (1) increased transactions per ATM in the Company's domestic and United Kingdom operations; (2) unit growth expansion; (3) increased revenues from managed services agreements; (4) higher equipment sales; (5) increased bank branding revenues from financial institution partners; and (6) growth in Allpoint, the Company's leading surcharge-free network.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2011 totaled $43.0 million, compared to $34.9 million during the third quarter of 2010, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $16.9 million ($0.39 per diluted share) compared to $11.4 million ($0.28 per diluted share) during the third quarter of 2010. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share were positively affected by the incremental operations of ATMs acquired from EDC, as well as the organic revenue growth. The year-over-year improvement in Adjusted Net Income per diluted share was also partially attributable to lower interest expense, which was $1.8 million lower than a year ago, resulting from the refinancing of the Company's debt in the third quarter of 2010, partially offset by the additional borrowings under the Company's amended credit facility to fund the acquisition of EDC. Specific costs excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are detailed in a reconciliation included at the end of this press release.

GAAP Net Income for the third quarter of 2011 totaled $46.9 million, compared to $20.8 million during the same quarter in 2010. The GAAP Net Income for the third quarter of 2011 included $37.0 million of income tax benefit, which was recorded as the result of certain tax reporting and structuring changes the Company implemented during the quarter with respect to its U.K. operations. The third quarter of 2010 also included a net income tax benefit of $20.7 million due to the release of valuation allowances related to the Company's domestic deferred tax assets. Partially offsetting the income tax benefit in 2010, the Company recorded approximately $14.5 million in pre-tax non-recurring charges associated with the Company's early retirement of its senior subordinated notes and the refinancing of its credit facility. The year-over-year increase in GAAP Net Income, aside from income taxes and prior year non-recurring charges, was a result of the factors identified in the discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income above, partially offset by higher stock-based compensation and non-recurring acquisition-related costs.

NINE MONTHS RESULTS

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, consolidated revenues totaled $450.4 million, representing a 13% increase from the $397.3 million in consolidated revenues generated during the same period in 2010. As was the case with the Company's quarterly results, the year-over-year increase was partially attributable to the inclusion of EDC's operations into the Company's consolidated results and a combination of increased transactions per ATM, increased revenues from managed services agreements, higher equipment sales, unit growth expansion, growth in Allpoint, and increased bank branding revenues from financial institution partners.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $114.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, representing a 17% increase over the $98.0 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2010, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $42.9 million ($1.01 per diluted share) for the first nine months of 2011, up 36% on a per share basis from $30.2 million ($0.74 per diluted share) during the same period in 2010. The increases in both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income were primarily due to the same factors noted above for the Company's quarterly results.

GAAP Net Income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 totaled $62.1 million, compared to $32.9 million during the same period in 2010. As was the case with the quarterly results, the results for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 include certain non-recurring items related to taxes and re-financing costs. Excluding these non-recurring effects, the improvement in the Company's GAAP results was primarily driven by the same factors outlined above with respect to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income.

GUIDANCE

Update of Full-Year 2011 Guidance

The Company is updating the financial guidance it previously issued regarding its anticipated full-year 2011 results, and now expects the following, which includes expected results from the Access to Money acquisition from the date of closing (November 1, 2011) through the end of the year:

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance excludes the impact of $9.2 million of anticipated stock-based compensation expense and $18.2 million of expected intangible asset amortization expense, both on a pre-tax basis. Additionally, this guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates during the October to December period of $1.55 U.S. to £1.00 U.K. and $13.00 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S. Finally, the guidance assumes that interest rates during the October to December period remain relatively consistent with what the Company has experienced during the first nine months of the year.

LIQUIDITY, BALANCE SHEET AND OTHER

On July 25, 2011, concurrent with the closing of the EDC acquisition, the Company expanded the borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility from $175.0 million to $250.0 million and extended the term of the credit facility by one year through July 15, 2016. In addition, the amended credit facility can be extended to up to $325.0 million under certain conditions. The amendment also modified certain pricing terms and restrictive covenants, the terms of which are generally more favorable for the Company. As of the end of the quarter, the Company had $156.3 million in outstanding borrowings under its amended credit facility, resulting in approximately $89.4 million in available credit, net of outstanding borrowings and letters of credit.

In October, a large international network announced planned reductions to the net interchange payments it makes to ATM deployers. The Company plans to discuss this action and its possible impact to the Company in greater detail on its conference call today (see below for further details regarding this conference call).

DISCLOSURE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted within the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Management believes that the presentation of these measures and the identification of unusual, non-recurring, or non-cash items 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 expense 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 method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect acquisition-related costs and our obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense or other obligations such as capital expenditures. Adjusted Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization expense, loss on disposal of assets, noncontrolling interests, stock-based compensation expense and certain other expense (income) and acquisition-related costs. Adjusted Net Income per diluted share is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by average weighted diluted shares outstanding calculated in accordance with GAAP. 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 measure of Free Cash Flow does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as, for example, mandatory principal payments on portions of the Company's long-term debt. 

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net 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 press release.
