LEAWOOD, Kan., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. ("Euronet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: EEFT), a leading electronic payments provider, reports second quarter 2022 financial results.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the second quarter 2022 compared with the same period of 2021:

  • Revenues of $843.3 million, an 18% increase from $714.7 million (28% increase on a constant currency1 basis).

  • Operating income of $101.1 million, a 236% increase from $30.1 million (279% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA2 of $147.2 million, a 97% increase from $74.7 million (119% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $57.3 million, or $1.08 diluted earnings per share, compared with $8.6 million, or $0.16 diluted earnings per share.

  • Adjusted earnings per share3 of $1.73, a 226% increase from $0.53.

  • Euronet's cash and cash equivalents were $1,014.9 million and ATM cash was $890.8 million, totaling $1,905.7 million as of June 30, 2022, and availability under its revolving credit facilities was approximately $475 million.

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

"I am very pleased that we were able to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter of strong double-digit consolidated year-over-year revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth rates," stated Michael J. Brown, Euronet's Chairman and CEO. "We continued to see a strong rebound in our EFT transactions stemming from a recovery in travel as COVID restrictions are being lifted, while at the same time providing Ukrainians more than 1.7 million free ATM withdrawal transactions as they seek shelter in surrounding countries. In Money Transfer, we saw continued growth in both our physical and digital distribution networks, which included a nice rebound in transactions in the Asia Pacific region as COVID restrictions are being lifted. And, in epay we continued to see growth in content sold through both physical and digital channels."   

"As I look at our business, I'd be remiss not to address the current macroeconomic trends, such as the strengthening U.S. dollar, rising interest rates, inflation, as well as staffing and operational issues within the travel industry. While these items have not had a material impact on our gross profits, we have started to see some evidence of pressure on our epay and Money Transfer transactions and we do expect an increasing impact on our expenses as we move through the second half of the year - particularly when compared to the last pre-COVID year of 2019," continued Mr. Brown. "While the uncertainty created by these events is not what we prefer, we have a proven track record of continuing to grow our business through the various economic cycles - both good and bad.  The diversity of our products and markets together with strong demand for our leading technology products supports our view that we will continue to post solid growth rates for the full year."

Taking into consideration current trends in the business and global economy, the latest global COVID-19 landscape and historical seasonal patterns, the Company anticipates that its third quarter 2022 adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of approximately $210 million to $220 million.  Moreover, these same macro conditions, including, but not limited to, disruption in the travel industry, COVID-19 variants, inflation and related inflation control measures lead the Company to anticipate that it will complete the full year 2022 with adjusted EPS in the range of $6.30 to $6.40. This outlook does not include any change in foreign exchange rates, interest rates, changes in COVID-19 containment, changes in travel patterns stemming from the war in Ukraine, or other unusual factors that may develop throughout the quarter.

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2022 compared with the same period or date in 2021:

  • Revenues of $249.0 million, a 119% increase from $113.5 million (144% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $54.8 million, a 317% improvement from an operating loss of ($25.3) million (341% improvement on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $80.5 million an improvement from ($3.1) million.

  • Transactions of 1,573 million, a 59% increase from 988 million.

  • Total of 51,062 installed ATMs as of June 30, 2022, a 10% increase from 46,246. Operated 50,178 active ATMs as of June 30, 2022, a 15% increase from 43,559 as of June 30, 2021.

Improvements in revenue, operating income and adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter 2022 were driven by increased domestic and international withdrawal transactions resulting from a strong recovery in travel as COVID-19 restrictions lift, more POS processing revenue from the acquisition of Piraeus Bank's merchant acquiring business in March 2022, as well as a continued benefit from a significant volume increase in low-priced payment processing transactions from the Asia Pacific market.

The EFT Segment's total installed ATMs grew 10%, largely from the addition of more than 3,000 Euronet-owned ATMs, 1,100 new outsourcing ATMs and the addition of approximately 690 low-margin ATMs in India. The difference between installed and active ATMs is from ATMs deactivated due to seasonal closures or COVID-19-related travel restrictions. At the end of the second quarter of 2022, approximately 885 ATMs remained closed due to seasonal locations or continued COVID-19 travel restrictions -- approximately 65% less than the 2,687 that were closed at the end of the second quarter 2021. 

The epay Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2022 compared with the same period or date in 2021:

  • Revenues of $227.7 million, a 7% decrease from $243.9 million (2% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $24.3 million, an 11% decrease from $27.2 million (1% decrease on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $25.9 million, a 12% decrease from $29.3 million (2% decrease on a constant currency basis).

  • Transactions of 1,116 million, a 42% increase from 788 million.

  • Point-of-sale ("POS") terminals of approximately 762,000 as of June 30, 2022, a 2% increase from approximately 748,000.

  • Retailer locations of approximately 339,000 as of June 30, 2022, a 2% increase from approximately 333,000.

Constant currency revenue and transaction growth was driven by continued expansion of digital branded payments and mobile growth, together with the continued expansion of the digital distribution channel. Offsetting constant currency revenue growth was the impact of the previously disclosed loss of a key customer in Europe. Moreover, while not significant in the second quarter, we began to see trends in the more discretionary use products that suggest inflation may have contributed a certain amount of pressure on the Segment's results. 

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the second quarter 2022 compared with the same period or date in 2021:

  • Revenues of $368.5 million, a 3% increase from $359.3 million (9% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $40.6 million, an 8% decrease from $44.0 million (3% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $49.2 million, an 8% decrease from $53.2 million (2% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Total transactions of 37.3 million, a 9% increase from 34.2 million.

  • Network locations of approximately 504,000 as of June 30, 2022, a 3% increase from approximately 490,000.

Second quarter revenue growth was the result of 10% growth in U.S.-outbound transactions, 11% growth in international-originated money transfers - which included 11% growth in both transfers initiated largely in Europe and those initiated in the Middle East and Asia - and 37% growth in direct-to-consumer digital transactions, partially offset by declines in the U.S. domestic business. Operating income and adjusted EBITDA were lower from continued investments in physical and digital network expansion, higher costs to support technology and certain new product development and advertising costs in the current period. Moreover, while not significant in the second quarter, the Money Transfer Segment began to see decreases in average send amounts which suggests inflation may have contributed to a certain amount of pressure on the Segment's results.

While the Money Transfer Segment continued to grow network locations year-over-year by 3%, the Segment suspended its service to Russia, Belarus and Tajikistan during the first quarter 2022 which resulted in a decline in location count by more than 20,000 locations. The closure of these locations had a nominal impact on our revenue and operating profits. 

Corporate and Other reports $18.6 million of expense for the second quarter 2022 compared with $15.8 million for the second quarter 2021. The increase in corporate expense for the second quarter is largely due to higher short-term compensation expense due to improved Company performance.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position
Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents on hand was $1,014.9 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $986.5 million as of March 31, 2022. The increase in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents is largely from cash generated from operations of approximately $75 million in the second quarter of 2022 as well as short-term borrowings to fund ATM cash and certain working capital needs - which is also reflected in the increase in debt. This increase is partially offset by cash placed into the ATMs in response to increased travel demands, share repurchases of $104.6 million and working capital requirements.

Total indebtedness was $2.09 billion as of June 30, 2022, compared to $1.77 billion as of March 31, 2022. As of June 30, 2022, availability under the Company's revolving credit facilities was approximately $475 million.

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 financial measures, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per share. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, revenues, net income, operating income (loss) 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.

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of its forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for GAAP and the related GAAP and non-GAAP reconciliation, including adjustments that would be necessary for foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and other charges reflected in the Company's reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.

(1) Constant currency financial 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, to the extent incurred in the period, interest, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation and other non-operating or non-recurring items that are considered expenses or income under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.

(3) Adjusted earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding, to the extent incurred in the period, the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign currency exchange gains or losses, b) share-based compensation, c) acquired intangible asset amortization, d) non-cash interest expense, e) non-cash income tax expense, f) other non-operating or non-recurring items and g) dilutive shares relate to the Company's convertible bonds. Adjusted earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
