  • Operating income of $34.1 million, a 23% increase from $27.8 million (17% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) of $54.8 million, a 15% increase from $47.7 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $20.5 million or $0.38 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $18.1 million or $0.35 diluted earnings per share.

  • Transactions of 632 million, an 8% increase from 587 million.

See the reconciliation of non-GAAP items in the attached financial schedules.

"This was another excellent quarter for our business, highlighted by strong 21% growth in adjusted cash earnings per share - the sixth consecutive quarter we have achieved double-digit adjusted cash earnings per share growth," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "All three segments contributed to our revenue and earnings expansion. EFT growth was from continued ATM network expansion complemented by strong demand for value added products. Money transfer benefited from solid organic growth together with the successful launch of the Walmart-2-Walmart product and the acquisition of HiFX. epay posted revenue and operating income growth driven by its continued focus on sales of non-mobile content. With momentum in all three segments, we are well positioned for a strong second half of the year."

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $89.5 million, a 24% increase from $72.2 million (22% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $21.6 million, a 44% increase from $15.0 million (37% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $29.3 million, a 29% increase from $22.7 million (24% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 320 million, an 8% increase from 297 million.
  • Operated 19,313 ATMs as of June 30, 2014, a 12% increase from 17,242.

Revenue, adjusted EBITDA and operating income growth in the quarter was the result of a 12% expansion of the ATM networks in India and Europe, an increase in the number of point of sale dynamic currency conversion transactions and other value added transactions.

Transactions increased 8%, with the largest growth in Europe. Transaction growth was partially offset by the previously announced contract termination by IDBI bank in India. Removing the impact of the IDBI agreement, transactions would have grown 11% over the second quarter last year.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $182.0 million, a 3% increase from $176.6 million (1% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $14.1 million, a 14% increase from $12.4 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $18.3 million, a 12% increase from $16.3 million (10% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Transactions of 300 million, a 7% increase from 281 million.
  • Point of sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 664,000 as of June 30, 2014, a 4% decrease from approximately 689,000.
  • Retailer locations of approximately 294,000 as of June 30, 2014, a 16% decrease from approximately 348,000.

epay revenue was up slightly as compared with the prior year on a constant currency basis. Operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth was primarily related to increased demand for non-mobile content, partially offset by certain mobile content transaction declines. Operating income and adjusted EBITDA out-paced revenue growth as a result of increased gross profits of non-mobile content together with cost-saving measures implemented in certain markets.

The increase in transactions was largely driven by growth in India and Germany, partially offset by declines in the Middle East, Brazil, North America and the U.K. The decline in POS terminals and retailer locations stems primarily from the previously disclosed elimination of certain low volume retail locations in the U.S.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2014 compared with the same period or date in 2013:

  • Revenues of $124.3 million, a 33% increase from $93.4 million (31% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Operating income of $10.8 million, a 23% increase from $8.8 million (20% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million, a 23% increase from $13.3 million (20% increase on a constant currency basis).
  • Total transactions of 11.5 million, a 29% increase from 8.9 million.
  • Network locations of approximately 235,000 as of June 30, 2014, a 15% increase from approximately 204,000.

Money transfer revenues, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and transactions increased as a result of organic growth across the existing Ria business, the successful launch of the Walmart-2-Walmart product and the acquisition of HiFX. Revenue growth outpaced operating income and adjusted EBITDA growth due to continued investment in digital products, costs incurred to launch Walmart-2-Walmart and increased professional fees.

Corporate and Other reports $12.4 million of expense for the second quarter 2014 compared with $8.4 million for the second quarter 2013. The increase in corporate expense is primarily attributable to the resolution of a dispute related to a potential acquisition in a prior period and acquisition-related expense.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position

Unrestricted cash on hand was $408.4 million as of June 30, 2014, compared to $292.3 million as of March 31, 2014. Cash increased primarily as a result of cash balances acquired with HiFX, cash flows generated from operations and increases in operating cash requirements. Total indebtedness was $411.1 million as of June 30, 2014, compared to $243.2 million as of March 31, 2014. Debt increased as a result of the acquisition of HiFX and a temporary increase in operating cash requirements.

Guidance

The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the third quarter 2014, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $0.73.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures, such as constant currency, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted cash earnings per share financial measures. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, net income, operating income and earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations. These non-GAAP measures are also an integral part of the Company's internal reporting and performance assessment for executives and senior management. The non-GAAP measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The attached schedules provide a full reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.

(1) Constant currency measures are computed as if foreign currency exchange rates did not change from the prior period. This information is provided to illustrate the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on the Company's results when compared to the prior period.

(2) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation and other non-operating or non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.

(3) Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign currency exchange gains or losses, b) goodwill impairment charges, c) gains or losses from the early retirement of debt, d) share-based compensation, e) acquired intangible asset amortization, f) non-cash interest expense, g) non-cash income tax expense, and h) other non-operating or non-recurring items. Adjusted cash earnings per share includes shares potentially issuable in settlement of convertible bonds or other obligations, if the assumed issuances are dilutive to adjusted cash earnings per share. Adjusted cash earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.

(1) As required by U.S. GAAP, the interest cost and amortization of the convertible debt issuance cost are excluded from income for the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share for any period when the convertible debentures, if converted, would be dilutive to earnings per share. Further, the convertible shares are treated as if all were outstanding for the period. Although the assumed conversion of the convertible debentures was not dilutive to the Company's GAAP earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2013, it was dilutive to the Company's adjusted cash earnings per share. Accordingly, the interest cost is excluded from income and the convertible shares are treated as if all were outstanding for the period.
     
(2) Adjusted cash earnings and adjusted cash earnings per share are non-GAAP measures that should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
