Announces 2021 Outlook

EVERTEC, Inc. (NYSE: EVTC) ("Evertec" or the "Company") today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Highlights and Recent Highlights

  • Revenue increased 6% to $134.2 million

  • GAAP Net Income attributable to common shareholders was $32.3 million, or $0.44 per diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 16% to $63.9 million

  • Adjusted earnings per common share was $0.59, or a 23% increase

  • Launched Santander Chile and Citibanamex products

  • Expanding in Mexico with Mercado Libre

Full Year 2020 Highlights

  • Revenue grew 5% to $510.6 million

  • GAAP Net Income attributable to common shareholders was $104.4 million, or $1.43 per diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 6% to $240.5 million

  • Adjusted earnings per common share was $2.07, or a 6% increase

  • $21.7 million returned to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends

Mac Schuessler, President and Chief Executive Officer stated "Despite the pandemic, we achieved record results for 2020 and delivered on significant key product implementations in Latin America for Santander Chile, Citibanamex and more recently with Mercado Libre in Mexico. We also benefited from increases in our ATH Movil and ATH Movil Business as consumers embraced a transition to digital transactions.

Schuessler continued, "Looking to 2021, we expect trends with consumers, merchants and banks to drive further digitized commerce. These industry tailwinds combined with our continued focus on innovation and market expansion in Latin America, will fuel our growth both this year and beyond."

Fourth Quarter 2020 Results

Revenue. Total revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was $134.2 million, an increase of 6%, compared with $127.2 million in the prior year. Revenue increase in the quarter primarily reflects sales volume growth driven by higher average ticket in our Merchant Acquiring segment, increased transaction volumes from ATH Movil and ATH Movil Business as well as the completion of several projects in both Puerto Rico and Latin America.

Net Income attributable to common shareholders. For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, GAAP Net Income attributable to common shareholders was $32.3 million, an increase of 29% or $0.44 per diluted share, compared with $25.0 million or $0.34 per diluted share in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA. For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, Adjusted EBITDA was $63.9 million, an increase of 16% compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue) increased approximately 410 basis points to 47.6% compared with 43.5% in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily driven by revenue growth and the positive impact of foreign currency exchange as compared to a negative foreign currency impact in the prior year.

Adjusted Net Income. For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, Adjusted Net Income was $42.8 million, an increase of 23% compared with $34.9 million in the prior year. Adjusted earnings per common share was $0.59, an increase of 23% compared with $0.48 in the prior year. The results included the impact of higher operating depreciation offset by lower interest expense and a lower effective tax rate in the quarter.

Full Year 2020 Results

Revenue. Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $510.6 million, an increase of 5% compared with $487.4 million in the prior year. The increase in revenue reflects higher sales volume driven by higher average ticket in our merchant acquiring business, higher ATH Movil and ATH Movil Business transactions, partially offset by lower POS and ATM transactions, coupled with the impact of $4.4 million of revenue recognized in connection with services to the Puerto Rico Department of Education as well as increases in revenue from COVID-19 specific services.

Net Income attributable to common shareholders. For the year ended December 31, 2020, GAAP Net Income attributable to common shareholders was $104.4 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, compared with $103.5 million or $1.41 per diluted share in the prior year. The increase reflects revenue growth, partially offset by higher operating expenses and increases in depreciation and amortization related to higher capital expenditures in the prior year as well as key projects that went to production this year and last year.

Adjusted EBITDA. For the year ended December 31, 2020, Adjusted EBITDA was $240.5 million, an increase of 6% compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 70 basis points to 47.1% compared with 46.4% in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily driven by revenue growth and the positive impact of foreign currency exchange.

Adjusted Net Income. For the year ended December 31, 2020, Adjusted Net Income was $151.4 million, an increase of 5% compared with $143.7 million in the prior year. Adjusted earnings per common share was $2.07, an increase of 6% compared with $1.96 in the prior year and includes the impact of a higher effective tax rate and higher operating depreciation and amortization partially offset by lower cash interest.

Share Repurchase

During the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company did not repurchase any shares, with total repurchases year-to-date of 336 thousand shares of its common stock at an average price of $21.73 per share for a total of $7.3 million. As previously announced on December 17, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors approved an increase in the share repurchase program, therefore as of December 31, 2020, a total of approximately $100 million remained available for future use under the Company’s share repurchase program.

2021 Outlook

The Company financial outlook for 2021 is as follows:

  • Total consolidated revenue between $533 million and $544 million representing growth of 4% to 7%

  • Adjusted earnings per common share between $2.15 to $2.23 representing a growth range of 4% to 8% as compared to $2.07 in 2020

  • Capital expenditures are anticipated to be approximately $50 million

  • Effective tax rate of approximately 13%

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The non-GAAP measures referenced in this release material are supplemental measures of the Company’s performance and are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). They are not measurements of the Company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to total revenue, net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities, as indicators of operating performance or as measures of the Company’s liquidity. In addition to GAAP measures, management uses these non-GAAP measures to focus on the factors the Company believes are pertinent to the daily management of the Company’s operations and believes that they are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the industry. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are included in the schedules to this release. These non-GAAP measures include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per common share and are defined below.

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude unusual items and other adjustments. This measure is reported to the chief operating decision maker for purposes of making decisions about allocating resources to the segments and assessing their performance. For this reason, Adjusted EBITDA, as it relates to the Company's segments, is presented in conformity with Accounting Standards Codification 280, Segment Reporting, and is excluded from the definition of non-GAAP financial measures under the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K. In addition, the Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is substantially consistent with the equivalent measurements that are contained in the senior secured credit facilities in testing EVERTEC Group’s compliance with covenants therein such as the senior secured leverage ratio.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income adjusted to exclude unusual items and other adjustments.

Adjusted Earnings per common share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted shares outstanding.

The Company uses Adjusted Net Income to measure the Company's overall profitability because the Company believe better reflects the Company's comparable operating performance by excluding the impact of the non-cash amortization and depreciation that was created as a result of Apollo Global Management LLC’s acquisition of a 51% indirect ownership in EVERTEC Group (the "Merger"). In addition, in evaluating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per common share, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses such as those excluded in calculating them. Further, the Company's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future operating results will not be affected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of, and subject to the protection of, the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of EVERTEC to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Statements preceded by, followed by, or that otherwise include the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "projects," "estimates," and "plans" and similar expressions of future or conditional verbs such as "will," "should," "would," "may," and "could" are generally forward-looking in nature and not historical facts. Any statements that refer to expectations or other characterizations of future events, circumstances or results are forward-looking statements.

Various factors that could cause actual future results and other future events to differ materially from those estimated by management include, but are not limited to: the Company’s reliance on its relationship with Popular for a significant portion of revenue and to grow the Company's merchant acquiring business; the Company's ability to renew its client contracts on terms favorable to the Company, including the Company's Master Services Agreement (MSA) with Popular, and any significant concessions the Company may have to grant to Popular with respect to pricing or other key terms in anticipation of the negotiation of the extension of the MSA, both in respect of the current term and any extension of the MSA; a potential government shutdown; a continuation of the Government of Puerto Rico’s fiscal crisis; the effectiveness of the Company’s risk management procedures; dependence on the Company's processing systems, technology infrastructure, security systems and fraudulent-payment-detection systems, and the risk that the Company's systems may experience breakdowns or fail to prevent security breaches, confidential data theft or fraudulent transfers; our ability to develop, install and adopt new technology; impairments to the Company’s amortizable intangible assets and goodwill; a decreased client base due to consolidations in the banking and financial-services industry; the credit risk of the Company’s merchant clients, for which the Company may also be liable; a decline in the market for the Company’s services due to increased competition, changes in consumer spending or payment preferences; the continuing market position of the ATH® network; the Company’s dependence on credit card associations and debit networks; regulatory limitations on the Company’s activities, including the potential need to seek regulatory approval to consummate transactions, due to the Company’s relationship with Popular and the Company’s role as a service provider to financial institutions and the Company’s potential inability to obtain such approval on a timely basis or at all; changes in the regulatory environment and changes in international, legal, tax, political, administrative or economic conditions; the Company’s ability to comply with federal, state, and local regulatory requirements; the geographical concentration of the Company’s business in Puerto Rico; operating an international business in multiple regions with potential political and economic instability; operating an international business in countries and with counterparties that increase the Company’s compliance risks and puts the Company at risk of violating U.S. sanctions laws; the Company’s ability to execute the Company’s expansion and acquisition strategies; the Company’s ability to protect the Company’s intellectual property rights; the Company’s ability to recruit and retain qualified personnel; evolving industry standards; the Company’s high level of indebtedness and restrictions contained in the Company’s debt agreements; the Company’s ability to generate sufficient cash to service the Company’s indebtedness and to generate future profits and the impact of natural disasters or catastrophic events in the countries in which the Company operates.

Consideration should be given to the areas of risk described above, as well as those risks set forth under the headings "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Risk Factors" in the reports the Company files with the SEC from time to time, in connection with considering any forward-looking statements that may be made by the Company and its businesses generally. The Company undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements, to report events or to report the occurrence of unanticipated events unless the Company is required to do so by law.
