Cardtronics Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2012 Results

HOUSTON, Feb. 7, 2013 (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 and year ended December 31, 2012.

Key financial statistics in the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 include:

  • Consolidated revenues of $198.4 million, up 14%, comprised of 11% organic growth and 3% growth from acquisitions
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.41, up 14% from $0.36
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $50.1 million, up 20% from $41.9 million
  • Gross Margin of 32.5%, up from 32.0%
  • Free Cash Flow of $29.9 million compared to $14.1 million
  • GAAP net income of $11.2 million or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $8.2 million or $0.18 per diluted share

"Our adjusted earnings for the quarter were up 14%, driven by strong organic revenue growth of 11%," commented Steve Rathgaber, chief executive officer. "The fourth quarter capped off a really solid year in which we grew our revenues by 25%, with over half of that growth being organic. Our business model is evolving as we are increasingly building products and executing strategies that will drive ATM transaction volume and thereby benefit all of our partners including the retailer with more sales, the consumer with greater convenience, and the financial institution with loyalty. Looking to the year ahead, we are well-positioned for another strong organic revenue and earnings growth year, and we also expect to continue to grow through strategic acquisitions, although we remain disciplined in our approach to these transactions."

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Further expansion of the Company's Canadian operations through the acquisition of Can-Do-Cash, a Canadian ATM operator of approximately 800 ATMs, on December 4, 2012.
  • Execution of a bank branding agreement with BBVA Compass to brand approximately 300 ATMs located in several premier retail chains in Colorado and Texas.
  • Bank branding of over 800 other new ATM locations during the quarter.
  • Net addition of over 1,170 new deployed Company-owned ATMs during the quarter.
  • Execution of a contract to place approximately 40 very high-transacting ATMs in some of the United Kingdom's busiest train stations.

Effects of foreign currency exchange rate movements had an insignificant impact on reported consolidated revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share during the quarter.

The results of operations include the results of Can-Do-Cash since December 4, 2012, which is the date that the acquisition closed, which had an immaterial impact on the consolidated results for both the quarter and the year.

Please refer to the "Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Information" contained later in this press 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 press release.

FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

For the fourth quarter of 2012, consolidated revenues totaled $198.4 million, representing a 14% increase from the $174.2 million in consolidated revenues generated during the fourth quarter of 2011. Organic growth in the quarter accounted for 11% of the growth and was primarily attributable to 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 of the Allpoint network. Partially offsetting the increases in organic revenue were a decline in interchange revenue per transaction as a result of rate reductions by a major interbank network and transaction volume shifts to networks that pay lower interchange rates, and lower equipment sales revenues. The remaining 3% of revenue growth was driven by businesses acquired during the fourth quarter of 2011 and during 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $50.1 million, compared to $41.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2011, and Adjusted Net Income totaled $18.3 million ($0.41 per diluted share) compared to $15.6 million ($0.36 per diluted share) during the fourth quarter of 2011. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share were positively affected by the incremental revenues attributable to ATMs acquired during the fourth quarter of 2011 and during 2012, as well as the organic revenue growth described above. 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 fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $11.2 million, compared to $8.2 million during the same quarter in 2011. GAAP Net Income before income taxes increased $4.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2011 due to the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA discussed above.

FULL-YEAR RESULTS

For the year ended December 31, 2012, consolidated revenues totaled $780.4 million, representing a 25% increase from the $624.6 million in consolidated revenues generated during the same period in 2011. Growth from acquisitions accounted for 12% of the increase in consolidated revenues for the year. Organic growth of 13% was attributable to a combination of increases in transactions per ATM, unit growth expansion, increased revenues from managed services agreements, higher bank branding revenues, growth in Allpoint, and higher equipment sales. As was the case with the fourth quarter results, the increases in organic revenue during the year ended December 31, 2012 were partially offset by the interchange rate reductions discussed above.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $189.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, representing a 21% increase over the $156.3 million in Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2011. Adjusted Net Income totaled $70.6 million ($1.61 per diluted share) for 2012, up 21% on a per share basis from $58.5 million ($1.37 per diluted share) during the same period in 2011. The increases in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income were primarily due to the same factors noted above for the Company's fourth quarter results.

GAAP Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaled $43.6 million, compared to $70.2 million during 2011. The year-over-year decrease in GAAP Net Income is primarily attributable to a non-recurring $37.0 million income tax benefit recorded in the third quarter of 2011. GAAP Income before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2012 was up 23% over 2011.

2013 GUIDANCE

Below is the Company's financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2013:

  • Revenues of $835.0 million to $850.0 million;
  • Overall gross margins of approximately 32.0% to 32.3%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $202.0 million to $209.0 million;
  • Depreciation and accretion expense of approximately $64.0 million to $65.5 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Cash interest expense of approximately $20.0 million to $20.5 million, net of noncontrolling interests;
  • Adjusted Net Income of $1.72 to $1.79 per diluted share, based on approximately 44.7 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding; and
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $70.0 million, net of noncontrolling interests.

For reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, please refer to the supplemental schedules at the end of this release.

The Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance excludes the impact of certain expenses, as outlined in the reconciliation provided at the end of this press release. Additionally, this guidance is based on average foreign currency exchange rates of $1.60 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 believes that it continues to maintain a strong liquidity position, with $96.0 million in available borrowing capacity under its $250.0 million revolving credit facility as of December 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 December 31, 2012 consisted of $200.0 million in senior subordinated notes due 2018, $152.0 million in borrowings under its revolving credit facility due 2016, and $2.8 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, the Company's obligations for the payment of income taxes, interest expense or other obligations such as capital expenditures, and an adjustment for noncontrolling interest. Adjusted Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization expense, loss on disposal of assets, stock-based compensation expense and certain other expense (income) and acquisition-related costs, and using an assumed 35% tax rate, with certain adjustments for noncontrolling interests. 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.
