Cardtronics Announces First Quarter 2012 Results

HOUSTON, April 30, 2012 (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 March 31, 2012.

Key financial and operational statistics in the first quarter of 2012 as compared to the first quarter of 2011 include:

  • 18% organic growth, driven by U.S. same-store withdrawal transaction growth of 11% in the quarter; and
  • 20% growth from acquisitions completed during 2011.

"We had a very strong quarter on the top-line, with organic growth driven by record same-store transaction growth in our U.S. operations," commented Steve Rathgaber, chief executive officer. "In comparison with last year, we believe that transaction volumes were benefited by an extra day in the quarter in this leap year, by very mild winter weather over most of the country, and by a significant increase in the number of tax refunds being made on prepaid cards and subsequent ATM cash withdrawals from those cards. Additionally, we had a very productive quarter on the new relationships front, executing several new long-term contracts with premier retailers in multiple geographies. With these recent contract wins, we continue to demonstrate to merchant retailers our industry-leading execution capabilities and our ability to drive foot traffic to their locations."

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

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.

FIRST QUARTER RESULTS

For the first quarter of 2012, consolidated revenues totaled $191.0 million, representing a 38% increase from the $138.0 million in consolidated revenues generated during the first quarter of 2011. Of the year-over-year increase, 20% was driven by businesses acquired during the second half of 2011, including EDC, Access to Money, Mr. Cash, and LocatorSearch. Of the remaining 18% organic revenue increase, 12% was attributable to a combination of the following: (1) increased transactions per ATM in the Company's United States and United Kingdom operations; (2) unit growth expansion; (3) increased revenues from managed services agreements; (4) increased bank branding revenues from financial institution partners; and (5) growth in Allpoint, America's largest surcharge-free network. Finally, 6% of the year-over-year increase in consolidated revenues was attributable to higher equipment sales, driven by increased demand as a result of new requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $44.5 million, compared to $33.5 million during the first quarter of 2011, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $16.8 million ($0.38 per diluted share) compared to $11.6 million ($0.27 per diluted share) during the first quarter of 2011. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share were positively affected by the incremental operations of ATMs acquired during the second half of 2011, as well as the organic revenue growth. 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 first quarter of 2012 totaled $9.8 million, compared to $6.5 million during the same quarter in 2011. The increase in GAAP Net Income for the first quarter of 2012 was positively affected by the factors identified in the discussion of the increase in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income above, partly offset by $1.1 million in acquisition-related costs, higher intangible asset amortization associated with the Company's recent acquisitions, and higher stock-based compensation.

Update of Full-Year 2012 Guidance

The Company is updating the financial guidance it previously issued regarding its anticipated full-year 2012 results, and now expects the following:

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance excludes the impact of $11.4 million of anticipated stock-based compensation expense and $23.3 million of expected intangible asset amortization expense, both on a pre-tax basis. Additionally, this guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates for the remainder of the year of $1.55 U.S. to £1.00 U.K., $13.00 Mexican pesos to $1.00 U.S., and $1.00 Canadian dollar to $1.00 U.S.

LIQUIDITY

The Company continues to maintain a very strong liquidity position, with $76.9 million in available borrowing capacity under its $250.0 million revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2012. In addition, the size of the amended credit facility can be increased to $325.0 million under certain conditions. The Company's outstanding indebtedness as of March 31, 2012 consisted of $200.0 million in senior subordinated notes due 2018, $171.0 million in borrowings under its revolving credit facility due 2016, and $4.6 million in equipment financing notes associated with its majority-owned Mexico subsidiary. 

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 also excludes acquisition-related costs, certain other non-operating costs, loss on asset disposal 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, and using an assumed 35% tax rate. 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.
