Euronet Worldwide Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial Results

·25 min read

The Company currently expects 2022 full year earnings to be similar to those of the pre-COVID year 2019, despite the lingering effects from the Omicron variant

LEAWOOD, Kan., Feb. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (“Euronet” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EEFT), a leading electronic payments provider, reports fourth quarter and full year 2021 financial results.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the fourth quarter 2021 compared with the same period of 2020:

  • Revenues of $811.5 million, a 15% increase from $706.6 million (18% increase on a constant currency1 basis).

  • Operating income of $29.0 million, a 42% decrease from $50.2 million (38% decrease on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted operating income2 of $67.6 million (excluding a $38.6 million contract asset impairment), a 33% increase from $50.8 million (which excluded a $0.6 million impairment of acquired intangible assets) (38% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA3 of $112.9 million, a 23% increase from $91.9 million (27% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Net loss attributable to Euronet of ($3.1) million or ($0.06) diluted loss per share, compared with net income of $70.2 million or $1.31 diluted earnings per share.

  • Adjusted earnings per share4 of $1.15, a 4% increase from $1.11.

  • Euronet's cash and cash equivalents was $1,260.5 million and ATM cash was $543.4 million, totaling $1,803.9 million as of December 31, 2021, and availability under its revolving credit facilities was approximately $690 million.

Euronet reports the following consolidated results for the full year 2021 compared with the same period of 2020:

  • Revenues of $2,995.5 million, a 21% increase from $2,482.7 million (18% increase on a constant currency1 basis).

  • Operating income of $184.0 million, a 295% increase from $46.6 million (284% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted operating income2 $222.6 million (excluding a $38.6 million contract asset impairment), a 45% increase from $153.2 million (excluding $106.6 million impairment of goodwill and acquired intangible assets) (42% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA3 of $395.0 million, a 31% increase from $302.2 million (28% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Net income attributable to Euronet of $70.7 million or $1.32 diluted income per share, compared with net loss of ($3.4) million or ($0.06) diluted loss per share.

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

“I am pleased that we ended the year with another strong quarter where we delivered double-digit consolidated revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth rates," stated Michael J. Brown. "The EFT segment continued its recovery early in the fourth quarter as more travel restrictions were lifted; however, we began to see lighter transactions in the second half of the quarter as the Omicron variant spread across the globe. We also continued to see growth in epay and Money Transfer from our leading physical and digital distribution networks," continued Mr. Brown.

"Our strong full year growth rates across all three segments validated our strategy to stay the course during the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The investments we made in our physical and digital distribution networks, our product offerings and our leading-edge technology have resulted in significant expansion of our REN implementations and new agreements as well as the exciting launch in November 2021 of our Dandelion real-time cross-border payment network. Our leading global networks, industry leading technology and our global product portfolio all contributed to our production of approximately $225 million in cash in 2021 and will continue to fuel Euronet's growth for years to come."

The lighter than expected fourth quarter adjusted EBITDA results were largely driven by pressure on EFT transactions in the second half of the quarter due to the Omicron variant spreading around the globe.

Due in large part to COVID-19-related disruptions which resulted in lower-than-expected money transfer transaction volumes on certain contracts, the Company recognized a $38.6 million non-cash contract asset impairment in the Money Transfer Segment during the fourth quarter 2021. The full year 2020 results include impairments of goodwill and non-cash acquired intangible assets of $106.6 million. In order to provide more comparable recurring operating results, these non-cash impairments have been excluded from adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS in their respective periods.

The Company anticipates, based on recent trends, current global COVID-19 government mandates and the impacts of Omicron on the first quarter travel trends, that its first quarter adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of approximately $75 million to $85 million. However, the first quarter is historically the lightest travel quarter of the year, and therefore, the Company expects, as historical tourism trends accelerate and as travel recovers from COVID-19 related restrictions in the remaining three quarters of the year, together with the anticipated double-digit growth in epay and money transfer, its full year earnings to fall in a similar range to the earnings of 2019.

Segment and Other Results

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2021 compared with the same period or date in 2020:

  • Revenues of $163.5 million, a 63% increase from $100.4 million (68% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $1.8 million compared with ($21.2) million operating loss.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $25.9 million compared with adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million.

  • Transactions of 1,279 million, a 42% increase from 902 million.

  • Total of 48,619 installed ATMs as of December 31, 2021, a 7% increase from 45,485. Operated 42,713 active ATMs as of December 31, 2021, a 13% increase from 37,729.

The EFT Processing Segment reports the following results for the full year 2021 compared with the same period in 2020:

  • Revenues of $591.2 million, a 26% increase from $468.8 million (23% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating loss of ($0.4) million compared with operating loss of ($66.7) million.

  • Adjusted operating loss2 of ($0.4) million compared with adjusted operating loss of ($44.8) million (excluding a $21.9 million impairment of goodwill).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $90.5 million, a 131% increase from $39.2 million (128% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Transactions of 4.37 billion, a 33% increase from 3.28 billion.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2021, revenue, operating income (loss), adjusted operating income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA growth were driven by improvements in domestic and international withdrawal transactions resulting from the partial lifting of travel restrictions across Europe, together with a continued benefit from a significant volume increase in low-value point-of-sale transactions in Europe and low-value payment processing transactions from an Asia Pacific customer's bank wallet and e-commerce site.

The improved travel trends resulted in 1,850 fewer ATMs deactivated at year-end compared to December 31, 2020, which together with the addition of 3,550 new high value ATMs, 430 low-margin ATMs in India and 850 fewer outsourcing ATMs drove a net 13% increase in the Company's active ATM count at the end of the year. The difference between active and installed ATMs is due to ATMs that have been deactivated due to seasonal closures or COVID-19-related travel restrictions. At the end of 2021, approximately 5,900 ATMs were closed due to seasonal locations or continued COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2021 compared with the same period or date in 2020:

  • Revenues of $286.9 million, a 4% increase from $276.1 million (7% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $40.6 million, a 2% increase from $39.9 million (7% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $42.6 million, a 1% increase from $42.2 million (5% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Transactions of 854 million, a 21% increase from 703 million.

  • POS terminals of approximately 775,000 as of December 31, 2021, a 4% increase from approximately 748,000.

  • Retailer locations of approximately 335,000 as of December 31, 2021, a slight decrease from approximately 338,000.

The epay Segment reports the following results for the full year 2021 compared with the same period in 2020:

  • Revenues of $1,011.4 million, a 21% increase from $835.5 million (18% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $122.9 million, a 27% increase from $96.7 million (25% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $131.4 million, a 26% increase from $104.6 million (24% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Transactions of 3.12 billion, a 30% increase from 2.40 billion.

For the fourth quarter and full year of 2021, revenue, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and transaction growth were driven by continued growth in digital media and mobile growth together with the continued expansion of digital distribution channel. The fourth quarter results also reflect the reduction of mobile operator commissions of approximately $5.0 million, which equally reduced revenue and direct costs resulting in no impact on gross profit or operating income growth, together with the loss of a key customer which generated approximately $5.0 million annual operating profits. If not for these two items, epay's revenue and adjusted operating income would have each grown approximately 10%.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the fourth quarter 2021 compared with the same period or date in 2020:

  • Revenues of $363.3 million, a 10% increase from $331.6 million (11% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $2.7 million compared with $45.0 million.

  • Adjusted operating income of $41.3 million (excluding $38.6 million contract asset impairment), a 9% decrease from $45.6 million (6% decrease on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $50.1 million, an 8% decrease from $54.6 million (5% decrease on a constant currency basis).

  • Total transactions of 35.7 million, a 10% increase from 32.4 million.

  • Network locations of approximately 510,000 as of December 31, 2021, a 10% increase from approximately 464,000.

The Money Transfer Segment reports the following results for the full year 2021 compared with the same period in 2020:

  • Revenues of $1,401.0 million, an 18% increase from $1,183.8 million (16% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Operating income of $119.6 million, a 100% increase from $59.7 million (93% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted operating income of $158.2 million (excluding $38.6 million contract asset impairment), a 10% increase from $144.4 million (excluding $84.7 million impairment of goodwill and acquired intangible assets) (7% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $194.2 million, an 8% increase from $179.1 million (5% increase on a constant currency basis).

  • Total transactions of 135.1 million, a 16% increase from 116.5 million.

Fourth quarter 2021 revenue growth was the result of 19% growth in each of the U.S. and international-outbound transactions, excluding the Middle East and Asia and 55% growth in direct-to-consumer digital transactions, partially offset by a decline of 26% in transactions originated in Asia and the Middle East where COVID-19 lockdowns weighed significantly on transactions during the period as well as declines in the U.S. domestic business. Operating income, adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA were lower due to continued investments in network expansion together with higher costs to support technology, certain new product development and marketing costs in the current period.

Full year 2021 revenue growth was driven by 25% growth in U.S.-outbound transactions, 72% growth in direct-to-consumer digital transactions and 21% growth in international-originated money transfer transactions - which was a combination of 30% growth in international-outbound transactions, partially offset by a decline of 18% in transactions originated in Asia and the Middle East where COVID-19 lockdowns weighed significantly on transactions during the second half of the year. Moreover, revenue growth was partially offset by declines in the U.S. domestic business. Revenue grew faster than adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA due to continued investments in network expansion, technology, product development and marketing initiatives. The increase in operating income for the full year 2021 when compared to the prior year period was significantly impacted by the impairment of goodwill and acquired intangible assets that occurred in 2020.

Corporate and Other reports $16.1 million of expense for the fourth quarter 2021 compared with $13.5 million for the fourth quarter 2020. For the full year 2021, Corporate and Other reports $58.1 million of expense compared with $43.1 million for the full year 2020. The increase in expense for both the fourth quarter and full year 2021 is largely from an increase in long-term compensation expense.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position
Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents on hand was $1,260.5 million as of December 31, 2021, compared to $1,048.5 million as of September 30, 2021. The increase in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents is largely from $65 million in cash generated from operations, together with a drawdown on the revolving credit facility as a result of effective treasury management for year-end settlement requirements across many currencies, and cash returned from ATMs due to seasonal ATM closures in the fourth quarter, partially offset by cash paid for capital expenditures and $228 million in share repurchases. While the Company continues to believe its $1,260.5 million unrestricted cash and cash equivalents balance is more than sufficient to sustain the business through the difficult times brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has approximately $540 million of cash in ATMs at December 31, 2021 which could be re-deployed to operations, giving the Company more than $1.8 billion of cash and cash equivalents. In addition, the Company has approximately $690 million of availability under its revolving credit facility.

Total indebtedness was $1.43 billion as of December 31, 2021, compared to $1.21 billion as of September 30, 2021. The Company drew approximately $280 million on its available revolving credit facility to effectively manage year-end payments across several currencies shortly before year end; a majority of this draw was repaid after year-end.

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 operating income (loss), adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings (loss) per share. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, revenues, net income (loss), operating income (loss) and earnings (loss) 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 operating income (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) excluding contract asset impairment charges and goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges. Adjusted operating income (loss) represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.

(3) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) excluding, to the extent incurred in the period, interest, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation, contract asset impairment charges, goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges 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.

(4) Adjusted earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP (loss) earnings per share excluding, to the extent incurred in the period, the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign currency exchange gains or losses, b) goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges, c) share-based compensation, d) acquired intangible asset amortization, e) non-cash interest expense, f) non-cash income tax expense (benefit), g) contract asset impairment charges, h)goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and i) other non-operating or non-recurring items. Adjusted earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
