NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

(1) General and Basis of Presentation  

 

(a) General  

 

On July 1, 2016, the location of incorporation of the parent company of the Cardtronics group of companies was changed from Delaware to the United Kingdom (the “U.K.”), whereby Cardtronics plc, a public limited company organized under English law (“Cardtronics plc”), became the new publicly traded corporate parent of the Cardtronics group of companies following the completion of the merger between Cardtronics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Cardtronics Delaware”), and one of its subsidiaries (the “Merger”). The Merger was completed pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated April 27, 2016, the adoption of which was approved by Cardtronics Delaware’s stockholders on June 28, 2016 (collectively, the “Redomicile Transaction”).

 

Any references to “the Company” or any similar references relating to periods before the Redomicile Transaction shall be construed as references to Cardtronics Delaware being the previous parent company of the Cardtronics group of companies. The Redomicile Transaction has been accounted for as an internal reorganization of entities under common control and, therefore, Cardtronics Delaware’s assets and liabilities have been accounted for at their historical cost basis and not revalued in the transaction. The Redomicile Transaction is discussed in more detail in Note 3. Stock-Based Compensation, Note 5. Stockholders’ Equity, Note 8. Long-Term Debt, and Note 16. Supplemental Guarantor Financial Information .

 

Cardtronics plc, along with its wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”), provides convenient automated consumer financial services through its network of automated teller machines (“ATMs”) and multi-function financial services kiosks. As of September 30, 2016, the Company provided services to over 200,000 ATMs across its portfolio, which included approximately 180,000 ATMs located in all 50 states of the United States (the “U.S.”) (including the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico), approximately 17,000 ATMs throughout the U.K. and Ireland, approximately 1,300 ATMs throughout Germany, Poland, and Spain, approximately 3,700 ATMs throughout Canada, and approximately 1,300 ATMs throughout Mexico. In the U.S., certain of the Company’s ATMs are multi-function financial services kiosks that, in addition to traditional ATM functions such as cash dispensing and bank account balance inquiries, perform other consumer financial services, including bill payments, check cashing, remote deposit capture (which is deposit-taking at ATMs using electronic imaging), and money transfers. The total count of over 200,000 ATMs also includes ATMs for which the Company provides processing only services and various forms of managed services solutions, which may include transaction processing, monitoring, maintenance, cash management, communications, and customer service.

 

Through its network, the Company provides ATM management and equipment-related services (typically under multi-year contracts) to large retail merchants of varying sizes, as well as smaller retailers and operators of facilities such as shopping malls, airports, and train stations. In doing so, the Company provides its retail partners with a compelling automated financial services solution that helps attract and retain customers, and in turn, increases the likelihood that the ATMs placed at their facilities will be utilized.

 

In addition to its retail merchant relationships, the Company also partners with leading national financial institutions to brand selected ATMs and financial services kiosks within its network, including BBVA Compass Bancshares, Inc. (“BBVA”), Citibank, N.A. (“Citibank”), Citizens Financial Group, Inc. (“Citizens”), Cullen/Frost Bankers, Inc. (“Cullen/Frost”), JPMorgan Chase & Co (“Chase”), Santander Bank, N.A. (“Santander”), TD Bank, N.A. (“TD Bank”), and PNC Bank, N.A. (“PNC Bank”) in the U.S., The Bank of Nova Scotia (“Scotiabank”) and Santander in Puerto Rico, and Scotiabank, TD Bank, and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (“CIBC”) in Canada. In Mexico, the Company operates Cardtronics Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (“Cardtronics Mexico”) and partners with Grupo Financiero Banorte, S.A. de C.V. (“Banorte”) and Scotiabank to place their brands on the Company’s ATMs in exchange for certain services provided by them. As of September 30, 2016, approximately 22,000 of the Company’s ATMs were under contract with approximately 500 fin ancial institutions to place their logos on the machines, and to provide convenient surcharge-free access for their banking customers.

The Company owns and operates the Allpoint network (“Allpoint”), the largest surcharge-free ATM network (based on the number of participating ATMs). Allpoint, with approximately 55,000 participating ATMs, provides surcharge-free ATM access to over 1,300 participating banks, credit unions, and prepaid card providers. For participants, Allpoint provides scale and density of free ATMs. In exchange, Allpoint earns either a fixed monthly fee per cardholder or a set fee per transaction that is paid by participants . The Allpoint network includes a majority of the Company’s ATMs in the U.S. and a portion of the Company’s ATMs in the U.K., Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Allpoint also works with financial institutions that manage stored-value debit card programs on behalf of corporate entities and governmental agencies, including general purpose, payroll and electronic benefits transfer cards. Under these programs, the issuing financial institutions pay Allpoint a fee per issued stored-value card or per transaction in return for allowing the users of those cards surcharge-free access to Allpoint’s participating ATM network.

 

Finally, the Company owns and operates an electronic funds transfer (“EFT”) transaction processing platform that provides transaction processing services to its network of ATMs and financial services kiosks, as well as other ATMs under managed services arrangements. Additionally, through its acquisition of Columbus Data Services, L.L.C. (“CDS”) in 2015, the Company provides leading-edge ATM processing solutions to ATM sales and service organizations and financial institutions.

 

(b) Basis of Presentation

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “Form 10-Q”) has been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applicable to interim financial information. Because this is an interim period filing presented using a condensed format, it does not include all of the disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”), although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information not misleading. You should read this Form 10-Q along with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (as amended, the “2015 Form 10-K”), which includes a summary of the Company’s significant accounting policies and other disclosures.

 

The financial statements as of September 30, 2016 and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 are unaudited. The Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2015 was derived from the audited balance sheet filed in the 2015 Form 10-K with certain retroactive adjustments. The Company has adopted the provisions of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ ASU”) No. 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs (“ASU 2015-03”) and ASU No. 2015-15, Interest-Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Presentation and Subsequent Measurement of Debt Issuance Costs Associated with Line-of-Credit Arrangements - Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to Staff Announcement at June 18, 2015 EITF Meeting (“ASU 2015-15”). These updates require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the related debt liability instead of being presented as an asset and clarify the treatment of debt issuance costs related to a line-of-credit arrangement. As retrospective application is required by these standards updates, the debt carrying balances as of December 31, 2015 have been adjusted with no material impact. In addition, the Company has adopted early ASU No. 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”), applying its provisions prospectively to the interim reporting periods of 2016. ASU 2015-17 eliminates the requirement for organizations to present deferred tax liabilities and assets as current and noncurrent in a classified balance sheet and requires organizations to classify all deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent.

 

In management’s opinion, all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s interim and prior period results have been made. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year.

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company owns a majority (95.7%) interest in, and realizes a majority of the earnings and/or losses of, Cardtronics Mexico, thus this entity is reflected as a consolidated subsidiary in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, with the remaining ownership interests not held by the Company being reflected as noncontrolling interests.

Table of Contents

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates, and these differences could be material to the financial statements.

 

(c) Restricted Cash

Restricted cash consists of amounts collected on behalf of, but not yet remitted to, certain of the Company’s merchant customers or third-party service providers. The amounts include deposits held by the Company for transactions processed by its customers, as well as surcharge and interchange fees earned by the Company’s customers on transactions processed. These balances are classified as Restricted cash in the Current assets or Noncurrent assets line item on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets based on when the Company expects this cash to be paid.   The Company held $35.8 million and $31.6 million of Restricted cash in the Current assets line item in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively .  

 

(d) Inventory

 

Inventory consists principally of ATMs, ATM spare parts, and ATM supplies and is stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined using the average cost method.

(2) Acquisitions and Divestitures  

 

On July 1, 2015, the Company completed the divestiture of its retail cash-in-transit operation in the U.K. This business was primarily engaged in the collection of cash from retail locations and was originally acquired through the Sunwin

Table of Contents

Services Group acquisition completed in November 2014. The Company recognized divestiture proceeds at their estimated fair value of approximately $39 million in 2015. Of this amount, approximately $31 million was collected during the year ended December 31, 2015, and the remainder was collected during the six months ended June 30, 2016. The net pre-tax gain recognized on this transaction in 2015 was $16.6 million. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reached resolution of certain contingent terms in the agreement, and recorded an additional pre-tax gain of approximately $1.8 million.

 

On July 1, 2015, the Company completed the acquisition of CDS for a total purchase price of approximately $80.6 million. CDS is a leading independent transaction processor for ATM deployers and payment card issuers, providing solutions to ATM sales and service organizations and financial institutions.

 

The total purchase consideration for CDS was allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including identifiable tangible and intangible assets, based on their respective fair values estimated at the date of acquisition. The estimated fair values of the intangible assets included the acquired customer relationships valued at $16.5 million, technology valued at $7.8 million, and other intangible assets valued at $1.7 million. Intangible values were estimated utilizing primarily a discounted cash flow approach, with the assistance of an independent appraisal firm. The tangible assets acquired included property, plant, and equipment, and were recorded at their estimated fair value of $4.6 million, utilizing the market and cost approaches. The purchase price allocation resulted in goodwill of $52.7 million. The Company completed the purchase accounting for CDS in the first quarter of 2016, recognizing no additional adjustments to the preliminary opening balance sheet. All of the goodwill and intangible asset amounts are expected to be deductible for income tax purposes.

 

On April 13, 2016, the Company completed the acquisition of a 2,600 location ATM portfolio in the U.S. This acquisition was affected through multiple closings taking place primarily in April 2016. The total cash purchase price of approximately $13.8 million was paid in installments corresponding to each close. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had recognized property, plant, and equipment of $8.3 million, contract intangibles and prepaid merchant commissions of $7.1 million, and asset retirement obligations of $1.6 million. As of September 30, 2016, the accounting remains preliminary, pending finalization of the related asset appraisals.

 

See Note 6. Intangible Assets for a discussion of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets.

 

(3) Stock-Based Compensation  

 

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation by recognizing the grant date fair value of stock-based awards, net of estimated forfeitures, as compensation expense over the underlying requisite service periods of the related awards. The grant date fair value is based upon the Company’s stock price on the date of grant.

 

The following table reflects the total stock-based compensation expense amounts included in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations:

The comparative increase in stock-based compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, was attributable to the timing and amount of grants made during preceding periods and additional estimated expense related to performance-based awards in 2016.

 

In conjunction with the Redomicile Transaction, on July 1, 2016, Cardtronics plc executed a deed of assumption pursuant to which Cardtronics plc adopted and assumed the Third Amended and Restated 2007 Stock Incentive Plan (as

10


 

Table of Contents

amended, the “2007 Plan”) and assumed all outstanding awards granted under the 2007 Plan (including awards granted under the 2007 Plan prior to the completion of the Redomicile Transaction) and the 2001 Stock Incentive Plan of Cardtronics Delaware, as amended. All grants during the periods above were made under the 2007 Plan.

 

Restricted Stock Awards . The number of the Company’s outstanding Restricted Stock Awards (“RSAs”) as of September 30, 2016, and changes during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, are presented below:

As of September 30, 2016, the unrecognized compensation expense associated with all outstanding RSAs was $0.2 million, which will be recognized on a straight-line basis over a remaining weighted average vesting period of approximately one year.

 

Restricted Stock Units. The Company grants restricted stock units (“RSUs”) under its Long-term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”), which is an annual equity award program under the 2007 Plan. The ultimate number of RSUs that are determined to be earned under the LTIP are approved by the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors on an annual basis, based on the Company’s achievement of certain performance levels during the calendar year of its grant. The majority of these grants have both a performance-based and a service-based vesting schedule (“Performance-RSUs”), and the Company recognizes the related compensation expense based on the estimated performance levels that management believes will ultimately be met. A portion of the awards have only a service-based vesting schedule (“Time-RSUs”), for which the associated expense is recognized ratably over four years. Performance-RSUs and Time-RSUs are convertible into the Company’s common stock after the passage of the vesting periods, which are generally 24, 36, and 48 months from January 31 of the grant year, at the rate of 50%, 25%, and 25%, respectively. Performance-RSUs will be earned only if the Company achieves certain performance levels. Although the Performance-RSUs are not considered to be earned and outstanding until at least the minimum performance metrics are met, the Company recognizes the related compensation expense for those awards ultimately expected to vest over the requisite service period (or to an employee’s qualified retirement date, if earlier) using a graded vesting methodology. RSUs are also granted outside of LTIPs, with or without performance-based vesting requirements.

 

The number of the Company’s non-vested RSUs as of September 30, 2016, and changes during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, are presented below:

The above table only includes earned RSUs; therefore, the Performance-RSUs granted in 2016 but not yet earned are not included. The number of Performance-RSUs granted at target in 2016, net of estimated forfeitures, was 347,416 units with a grant date fair value of $38.01 per unit. Time-RSUs are included as granted.

 

As of September 30, 2016, the unrecognized compensation expense associated with earned RSUs was $15.0 million, which will be recognized using a graded vesting schedule for Performance-RSUs and a straight-line vesting schedule for Time-RSUs, over a remaining weighted average vesting period of approximately 1.6 years.

(4) Earnings per Share 

 

The Company reports its earnings per share under the two-class method. Under this method, potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share (as well as their related impact on the net income available to common stockholders) when their impact on net income available to common stockholders is anti-dilutive. Potentially dilutive securities for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 included all outstanding stock options, RSAs, and RSUs, which were included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share for these periods, if dilutive. The potentially dilutive effect of outstanding warrants and the underlying shares exercisable under the Company’s $287.5 million of 1.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 (the “Convertible Notes”) were excluded from diluted shares outstanding because the exercise price exceeded the average market price of the Company’s common stock. The effect of the note hedge the Company purchased to offset the underlying conversion option embedded in the Convertible Notes was also excluded, as the effect is anti-dilutive.

 

Additionally, the shares of restricted stock issued by the Company under RSAs have a non-forfeitable right to cash dividends, if and when declared by the Company. Accordingly, restricted shares issued under RSAs are considered to be participating securities and, as such, the Company has allocated the undistributed earnings for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 among the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock and issued but unvested restricted shares, as follows:

The computation of diluted earnings per share excluded potentially dilutive common shares related to restricted stock issued by the Company under RSAs of 7,217 and 12,920 shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, and 27,052 and 32,106 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, because the effect of including these shares in the computation would have been anti-dilutive.

Redomicile Transaction. Pursuant to the Redomicile Transaction, completed on July 1, 2016, each issued and outstanding share of Cardtronics Delaware common stock held immediately prior to the Merger was effectively converted into one Class A Ordinary Share, nominal value $0.01 per share, of Cardtronics plc (collectively, “Ordinary Shares”). Upon completion of the Redomicile Transaction, the Ordinary Shares were listed and began trading on The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC under the symbol “CATM,” the same symbol under which shares of Cardtronics Delaware common stock were formerly listed and traded. Likewise, the equity plans and/or awards granted thereunder were assumed by Cardtronics plc and amended to provide that those plans and/or awards will now provide for the award and issuance of Ordinary Shares. Furthermore, all shares of Cardtronics Delaware treasury stock were cancelled in the Redomicile Transaction.

 

The changes in common stock, treasury stock, and additional paid-in capital associated with the Redomicile Transaction are presented in the table below.
