ATLANTA, March 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EVO Payments, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVOP) (“EVO” or the “Company”) today announced its fourth quarter and year-end 2018 financial results. For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, revenue increased 9% to $150.8 million, compared to $138.6 million in the prior year. On a currency-neutral basis, revenue increased 12% over the prior year. On a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter, net loss attributable to EVO Payments, Inc. was $4.0 million or $0.16 per basic and diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA increased 21% to $44.3 million for the quarter, compared to $36.6 million in the prior year. On a currency-neutral basis, adjusted EBITDA grew 25% over the prior year. 

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, revenue increased 12% to $564.8 million, compared to $504.8 million in the prior year period. On a currency-neutral basis, revenue increased 11% over the prior year. On a GAAP basis for the year-to-date period, net loss attributable to EVO Payments, Inc. was $14.7 million or $0.70 per basic and diluted share, representing net income from the initial public offering date forward. Adjusted EBITDA increased 16% to $148.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, compared to $128.1 million in the prior year. On a currency-neutral basis, adjusted EBITDA grew 15% for the year-to-date period compared with the same period in the prior year. (See Schedule 1 for the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Schedule 4 for the Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures.)

“We are very pleased with our strong performance in the fourth quarter and 2018 overall,” said James G. Kelly, Chief Executive Officer of EVO. “In 2018, we continued to expand our distribution network through our bank partnerships and tech-enabled relationships. In addition to our revenue growth, our team delivered margin expansion as a result of our continued integration efforts. We remain focused on expanding our tech-enabled product capabilities in both North America and Europe, while continuing to look for new opportunities to expand our distribution footprint in our current and new markets.

Outlook
We expect 2019 full-year reported revenue with the adoption of the new revenue accounting standard (ASC 606) to range from $488 million to $505 million. On an adjusted basis adding back the impact of ASC 606 for comparability, we expect revenue to range from $593 million to $610 million for growth of 5% to 8% over 2018. On a constant currency basis, we expect adjusted revenue growth to be 9% to 12% over 2018 results. Net loss on a GAAP basis is expected to be in the range of $12 million to $9 million compared to a net loss of $99 million in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in a range of $156 million and $163 million, reflecting growth of 6% to 10% over 2018 adjusted EBITDA and 10% to 14% over currency-neutral 2018 adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to range from 26.4% to 26.7%, reflecting expansion of 27 to 60 basis points over 2018 currency-neutral adjusted EBITDA margin.

We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements are based on our current beliefs, assumptions, estimates and expectations, taking into account the information currently available to us and are not guarantees of future results or performance. Forward-looking statements are not statements of historical fact. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations of future results we express or imply in any forward-looking statements, and you should not place undue reliance on such statements. Factors that could contribute to these differences include the following: (1) our ability to anticipate and respond to changing industry trends and the needs and preferences of our customers and consumers; (2) the impact of substantial and increasingly intense competition; (3) the impact of changes in the competitive landscape, including disintermediation from other participants in the payments chain; (4) the effects of global economic, political and other conditions; (5) our compliance with governmental regulations and other legal obligations, particularly related to privacy, data protection and information security, and consumer protection laws; (6) our ability to protect our systems and data from continually evolving cybersecurity risks or other technological risks; (7) failures in our processing systems, software defects, computer viruses and development delays; (8) degradation of the quality of the products and services we offer, including support services; (9) risks associated with our ability to successfully complete, integrate and realize the expected benefits of acquisitions; (10) continued consolidation in the banking and payment services industries; (11) increased customer, referral partner, or sales partner attrition; (12) the incurrence of chargebacks; (13) failure to maintain or collect reimbursements; (14) fraud by merchants or others; (15) the failure of our third-party vendors to fulfill their obligations; (16) failure to maintain merchant and sales relationships and financial institution alliances; (17) ineffective risk management policies and procedures; (18) our inability to retain smaller-sized merchants and the impact of economic fluctuations on such merchants, (19) damage to our reputation, or the reputation of our partners; (20) seasonality and volatility; (21) our inability to recruit, retain and develop qualified personnel; (22) geopolitical and other risks associated with our operations outside of the United States; (23) any decline in the use of cards as a payment mechanism or other adverse developments with respect to the card industry in general; (24) increases in card network fees; (25) failure to comply with card networks requirements; (26) a requirement to purchase our eService subsidiary in Poland; (27) changes in foreign currency exchange rates; (28) future impairment charges; (29) risks relating to our indebtedness, including our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations on economized terms or at all and exposure to interest rate risks; (30)  changes to, or the potential phasing out of, LIBOR; (31) restrictions imposed by our credit facilities and outstanding indebtedness; (32) participation in accelerated funding programs; (33) failure to enforce and protect our intellectual property rights; (34) failure to comply with, or changes in, laws, regulations and enforcement activities, including those relating to corruption, anti-money laundering, data privacy and financial institutions; (35) impact of new or revised tax regulations; (36) legal proceedings; (37) our dependence on distributions from EVO, LLC to pay our taxes and expenses, including certain payments to the Continuing LLC Owners and, in the event that any tax benefits are disallowed, our inability to be reimbursed for payments made to the Continuing LLC Owners; (38) our organizational structure, including benefits available to the Continuing LLC Owners that are not available to holders of our Class A common stock to the same extent; (39) the risk that we could be deemed an investment company under the 1940 Act; (40) the significant influence the Continuing LLC Owners continue to have over us, including control over decisions that require the approval of stockholders; (41) certain provisions of Delaware law and anti-takeover provisions in our organizational documents could delay or prevent a change of control; (42) the effect of the Jumpstart our Business Startups Act of 2012 which allows us to reduce our SEC disclosure and postpone compliance with certain laws and regulations intended to protect investors; (43) certain provision in our organizational documents, including those that provide Delaware as the exclusive forum for litigation matters and that renounce the doctrine of corporate opportunity; (44) our ability to establish and maintain effective internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures; (45) changes in our stock price, including relating to downgrades, analyst reports, and future sales by us or by existing stockholders; and (46) the other risks and uncertainties contained from time to time in our filings with the SEC, including our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and our annual report on From 10-K. We qualify any forward-looking statements entirely by the cautionary factors listed above, among others. Other risks, uncertainties and factors, not listed above, could also cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in any forward-looking statements we make. We assume no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.

Non-GAAP financial measures

EVO Payments, Inc. has supplemented revenue, segment profit, net income/(loss) and earnings per share information determined in accordance with GAAP by providing these and other measures on an adjusted basis in this release to assist with evaluating performance.  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 evaluate 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, giving pro forma effect to the Company’s going forward effective tax rate following its Up-C reorganization, costs related to restructuring transactions, acquisition costs and other transitionary costs.  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 without taking into account fluctuations caused by 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. The Company also presents adjustments to its reported segment profit in this release. Segment profit is adjusted to exclude the impact of share-based compensation, transition, acquisition-related and integration costs.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure presented in this release. Adjusted EBITDA does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for management’s discretionary use as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements.

Adjusted EBITDA is included in this release because it is a key metric used by the Company’s management and board of directors to assess the Company’s financial performance. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is intended to provide additional information to investors about the Company’s results of operations that management utilizes on an ongoing basis to assess the Company’s core operating performance.  Adjusted EBITDA is also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the industry.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income before provision for income taxes, net interest expense, and depreciation and amortization, excluding the impact of share-based compensation, transition, acquisition-related and integration costs. The calculation of adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, including: (a) it does not reflect the Company’s cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (b) it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs; (c) it does not reflect the interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on the Company’s indebtedness; (d) it does 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 Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.

1 Effective January 1, 2019, EVO adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.  The new accounting standard changed the presentation of certain amounts that we pay to third parties, including payment networks.  This change in presentation affected our reported GAAP revenues and operating expenses by the same amount.  For 2018, payment network fees were presented within operating expenses and in 2019 payment network fees are presentation as a reduction of revenue.  As a result, adjusted revenue for 2019 is presented on a basis that is comparable to the prior year.   
   
2 2019 represents an estimated range of adjustments to reconcile net loss to adjusted EBITDA. These adjustments include a) net loss attributable to non-controlling interests in consolidating entities, b) income tax expense, c) net interest expense, d) depreciation and amortization, e) share-based compensation, and f) costs related to transition, acquisition or integration activities.
   
3 2019 represents an estimated range of adjustments to reconcile net loss to pro forma adjusted net income per share. These adjustments include a) income tax expense, b) share-based compensation costs, c) costs related to transition, acquisition or integration activities, d) the inclusion of amortization of intangible assets acquired in business combinations and other customer portfolio and related asset acquisitions and e) adjustments to income to reflect an effective pro forma corporate tax rate of 23.1%. 2018 includes adjustments as described in Schedule 6 which reconcile net loss to pro forma adjusted net income per share. GAAP net loss per share uses Class A share counts and pro forma adjusted net income per share uses adjusted share counts as the denominator including an additional 55.8 million shares inclusive of Class B, C, D, unvested restricted units, and unvested options that are excluded from the GAAP basic share count.
   
4 2019 pro forma adjusted net income per share is impacted by $0.18 of additional depreciation expense associated with acquisitions, strong international growth including the Poland cashless initiative, and periodic terminal compliance upgrade requirements, offset by a net $0.04 related to lower interest expense associated with the partial year impact of the IPO-related debt payoff, and higher interest expense associated with the partial year impact of 2018 interest rate increases.
