"I am pleased we delivered record annual adjusted cash earnings per share," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This earnings growth was the result of our continued focus on new products and markets together with effective execution across most of our business."
"Our EFT and Money Transfer Segments finished the year with strong 55% and 67% fourth quarter constant currency operating income growth, respectively," continued Mr. Brown. "And, while we still face challenges in some of our epay markets, we are starting to see benefits from the non-mobile content and value added services we introduced during the year. We look forward to the second quarter 2013 when we expect epay to stabilize."
In the fourth quarter 2012, the Company completed its annual goodwill impairment testing and recorded a non-cash goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charge of $28.7 million related to the Company's epay Brazil business. While the Company continues to introduce additional electronic payment products into the Brazilian market, the financial contribution of these products has not replaced the loss of earnings resulting from the continued impact of changes in distribution strategies of certain mobile operators in Brazil.
Segment and Other Results
The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the full year 2012 compared with the same period of 2011:
- Revenues of $237.9 million, a 19% increase from $199.3 million (32% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Operating income of $44.4 million, a 34% increase from $33.2 million (46% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted operating income of $44.4 million, a 35% increase from $32.9 million (47% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $69.7 million, a 29% increase from $54.0 million (41% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Transactions of 1,156 million, a 23% increase from 943 million.
- Operated 17,600 ATMs as of December 31, 2012, a 24% increase from 14,224 ATMs as of December 31, 2011.
The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2012 compared with the same period of 2011:
- Revenues of $64.8 million, a 19% increase from $54.3 million (22% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Operating income of $13.6 million, a 53% increase from $8.9 million (55% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $20.2 million, a 38% increase from $14.6 million (40% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Transactions of 297 million, a 16% increase from 257 million.
Revenue, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA expansion in the fourth quarter and full year 2012 is largely attributable to a 24% increase in ATMs under management, growth of value added services and increased demand for software products.
Transaction growth of 23% for the full year and 16% for the fourth quarter was driven by ATM expansion in India, Poland and Romania, together with further development of the European cross-border acquiring business. Revenue growth outpaced transaction growth due to a shift towards higher priced transactions. ATM growth was largely attributable to brown label ATM deployments in India and the cash4you acquisition in Poland completed late in the fourth quarter 2011. The deployment of brown label ATMs in India contributed to fourth quarter earnings growth, but negatively impacted full year results due to the ramp-up of transactions on these new ATMs.
The epay Segment reports the following results for the full year 2012 compared with the same period for 2011:
- Revenues of $714.2 million, a 5% increase from $677.1 million (10% increase on a constant currency basis).

- Adjusted operating income of $48.3 million, a 15% decrease from $57.0 million (14% decrease on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $68.1 million, a 10% decrease from $75.5 million (7% decrease on a constant currency basis).
- Transactions of 1,113 million, a 5% increase from 1,064 million.
- Point of sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 680,000 as of December 31, 2012, an 11% increase from approximately 615,000 as of December 31, 2011.
- Retailer locations of approximately 339,000 as of December 31, 2012, an 16% increase from approximately 293,000 as of December 31, 2011.
The epay Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2012 compared with the same period of 2011:
- Revenues of $199.5 million, a 4% increase from $191.2 million (6% increase on a constant currency basis).

- Adjusted operating income of $14.9 million, a 12% decrease from $16.9 million (11% decrease on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $19.4 million, a 12% decrease from $22.1 million (11% decrease on a constant currency basis).
- Transactions of 298 million, a 4% increase from 286 million.
Full year revenue growth versus the prior year was largely due to the September 2011 acquisition of cadooz. Revenue increases in the fourth quarter 2012 compared with the prior year were from continued demand for non-mobile products in Germany and prepaid mobile sales in the U.S. Adjusted operating income and Adjusted EBITDA declines for both the full year and fourth quarter were primarily focused in Brazil, Spain and Australia, partially offset by increases in Germany and the U.S.
Transaction growth of 5% and 4% for the full year and fourth quarter 2012, respectively, was driven by volume increases in the U.S., Germany, India and France. These volume increases were partially offset by declines in Spain, Australia and Brazil.
The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the full year 2012 compared with the same period for 2011:
- Revenues of $316.1 million, an 11% increase from $285.3 million (15% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Operating income of $24.6 million, a 44% increase from $17.1 million (50% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $43.4 million, a 16% increase from $37.5 million (20% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Total transactions of 30.7 million, a 25% increase from 24.5 million.
- Network locations of approximately 177,000 as of December 31, 2012, a 21% increase from approximately 146,000 as of December 31, 2011.
The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2012 compared with the same period of 2011:
- Revenues of $87.2 million, an 18% increase from $74.0 million (19% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Operating income of $7.4 million, a 64% increase from $4.5 million (67% increase on a constant currency basis).
- Adjusted EBITDA of $12.2 million, a 30% increase from $9.4 million (31% increase on a constant currency basis).

Revenue, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA expansion was driven by total transaction growth of 25% and 28% for the full year and fourth quarter, respectively. The strong growth resulted from Ria's continued focus on network expansion, which increased 21% over the prior year, together with additional transactions generated within existing markets.
For the full year, the number of money transfers increased 15%, including 18% from the U.S. and 10% from markets outside of the U.S. For the fourth quarter, money transfers increased 20%, including 26% from the U.S. and 13% from non-U.S. markets. Transfers from the U.S. to Mexico grew 19% and 28% for the full year and fourth quarter, respectively, with the fourth quarter representing the strongest quarterly growth in 2012. Non-money transfers increased 83% and 63% for the full year and fourth quarter, respectively.
Corporate and Other reports $30.6 million of expense for 2012 compared with $28.0 million for 2011. Fourth quarter 2012 Corporate expense was $9.1 million compared with $7.3 million for the fourth quarter 2011. The increase in Corporate expense is primarily attributable to long and short-term incentive compensation expense related to improved Company results.
Balance Sheet and Financial Position
Unrestricted cash on hand was $191.2 million as of December 31, 2012, compared to $191.8 million as of September 30, 2012. Total indebtedness was $301.3 million as of December 31, 2012, compared to $261.6 million as of September 30, 2012. Total debt increased as a result of borrowings to fund the repurchase of shares from DST Systems, Inc. and the acquisition of ezi-pay in New Zealand, partly offset by repayments of debt made using cash flows generated from operations.
The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the first quarter 2013 to be approximately $0.37, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter.
In addition to the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures, such as constant currency financial measures, adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted cash earnings per share. 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 operating income is defined as operating income excluding goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges, changes in the value of acquisition contingent consideration and non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.
(3) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation expenses and other non-operating or non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.
(4) Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign exchange gains or losses, b) goodwill and acquired intangible asset 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.
