ATLANTA, May 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EVO Payments, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVOP) (“EVO” or the “Company”) today announced its first quarter 2020 financial results.  For the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, reported revenue of $111.2 million was flat compared to $111.5 million in the prior year.  On a currency neutral basis, reported revenue for the first quarter increased 1.5%.  On a GAAP basis for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, the Company recognized a net loss of $13.6 million, an improvement of 29% compared to the prior year.  Adjusted EBITDA increased 3% to $31.5 million for the quarter, and on a currency neutral basis, adjusted EBITDA grew 6% over the prior year. 

“While the last month of the quarter was adversely impacted by COVID-19, the full effect of the economic disruption from the virus will manifest in the second quarter.  Our geographic, channel, and merchant diversification, and the actions we took to strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our fixed costs will enable us to withstand a significant decline in economic activity and positions us well to resume our growth plans as the global economies recover,” said James G. Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of EVO.  “I am extremely proud of how our employees have responded to this crisis.  Their tireless dedication, professionalism, and commitment to serving our customers during this challenging time has been commendable.”

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the pace of the global recovery, the Company secured a $150 million investment from funds affiliated with Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, a leading private equity firm that has been a significant shareholder of the Company since 2012, in April 2020 and recently amended its revolving credit facility to increase the maximum leverage ratio through March 31, 2021 to 6.0 times the last twelve months adjusted EBITDA. Together, these actions provide the Company with additional financial flexibility to both withstand and emerge from the global pandemic.

EVO’s management will host a conference call for investors at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, May 8, 2020 to discuss the results.  Participants may access the conference call via the investor relations section of the Company’s website at www.evopayments.com, or participants may also dial (866) 209-9657 inside the U.S. and Canada and (825) 312-2290 outside the U.S. and Canada to listen.  The conference ID number is 6855008.  A recording of the call will be archived on the Company's investor relations website following the live call.

(41) the significant influence the Continuing LLC Owners continue to have over us, including control over decisions that require the approval of stockholders; (42) certain provisions of Delaware law and antitakeover provisions in our organizational documents could delay or prevent a change of control;

Non-GAAP financial measures

EVO Payments, Inc. has supplemented revenue, segment profit, net income (loss), earnings per share information and weighted average common shares determined in accordance with GAAP by providing these and other measures on an adjusted basis in this release.  The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation of, as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, and such measures may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.  Management uses these adjusted financial performance measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to facilitate period-to-period comparisons.  Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures, together with other metrics, to set goals for and measure the performance of the business and to determine incentive compensation.  The Company believes that these adjusted measures provide useful information to investors about the Company’s ongoing underlying operating performance and enhance the overall understanding of financial performance of the Company’s core business by presenting the Company’s results without giving effect to equity-based compensation and costs related to transition, acquisition and integration matters, and giving effect to a normalized effective tax rate for the Company.  This release also contains information on various financial measures presented on a currency-neutral basis.  The Company believes these currency-neutral measures provide useful information to investors about the Company’s performance by excluding fluctuations caused solely by movements in currency exchange rates in the non-U.S. jurisdictions where the Company operates. Reconciliations of each non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are included in the schedules to this release.

Among other non-GAAP financial measures presented, this release contains a presentation of our adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income. Neither of these measures purport to be an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, and neither is intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for management’s discretionary use as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as tax payments and, in the case of adjusted EBITDA, interest payments and debt service requirements. Further, adjusted EBITDA does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance. These measures, or measures similar to them, are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the industry. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before provision for income taxes, net interest expense, and depreciation and amortization, excluding the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests in consolidated entities (including related depreciation and amortization), share-based compensation, and transition, acquisition and integration costs. Adjusted net income is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude income taxes, the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests in consolidated entities (including related depreciation and amortization), share-based compensation, transition, acquisition and integration costs, and amortization of acquisition intangibles and subsequently adjusted to give effect to a normalized tax rate for the Company. The calculation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income have limitations as analytical tools, including: (a) they do not reflect the Company’s cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (b) they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs; (c) in the case of adjusted EBITDA, it does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on the Company’s indebtedness; (d) they do not reflect the Company’s tax expense or the cash requirements to pay the Company’s taxes; and (e) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and these measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Adjusted net income per share is defined as adjusted net income divided by pro forma weighted average common shares. Pro forma weighted average common shares is defined as GAAP common weighted average shares (equal to our weighted average Class A common shares) plus, our weighted average Class B common shares, weighted average Class C common shares, weighted average Class D common shares and dilutive equity awards measured under the treasury stock method. Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio is a non-GAAP measure defined as total long-term debt less available cash (cash on the balance sheet less certain merchant settlement account balances and merchant reserves) divided by the trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA. This ratio is frequently used by investors, and management believes this measure provides relevant and useful information.
