Verra Mobility (PRNewsfoto/Verra Mobility)

"This is an incredibly exciting time for the Company," said David Roberts, President and CEO, Verra Mobility. "Operationally, our businesses are generating very strong results fueled by favorable secular trends including robust travel demand that is driving improved performance in our Commercial Services business. Moreover, we had the opportunity to communicate our long-term growth strategy, financial outlook and capital allocation priorities at our inaugural investor day, which demonstrates the conviction we have in both the growth strategy and predictability of our business going forward."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $187.5 million, an increase of 46% compared to $128.7 million for the second quarter of 2021. Organic service revenue growth was 26% which was mainly due to increase in travel volume and related tolling activity in the Commercial Services segment, and the organic growth in our Government Solutions segment which was 23%, driven by the school zone speed expansion. The recently acquired Redflex and T2 Systems contributed approximately $29 million to service revenue growth.

  • Net income: Net income for the second quarter of 2022 was $29.6 million, or $0.15 per share based on 160.3 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net income for the comparable 2021 period was $4.0 million, or $0.02 per share, based on 166.0 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS): Adjusted EPS for the second quarter of 2022 was $0.29 per share compared to $0.10 per share for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $88.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $68.6 million for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 47% of total revenue for 2022 and 53% for 2021.

We report our results of operations based on three operating segments:

  • Commercial Services offers automated toll and violations management and title and registration solutions to rental car companies, fleet management companies and other large fleet owners.

  • Government Solutions delivers automated safety solutions to municipalities, school districts and government agencies, including services and technology that enable photo enforcement related to speed, red-light, school bus and city bus lane management.

  • Parking Solutions provides an integrated suite of parking software and hardware solutions to universities, municipalities, parking operators, healthcare facilities and transportation hubs in the United States and Canada.

Second Quarter 2022 Segment Detail

  • The Commercial Services segment generated total revenue of $84.9 million, a 28% increase compared to $66.5 million in the same period in 2021. Segment profit was $56.4 million, a 32% increase from $42.7 million in the prior year. The increases in revenue and profit resulted from increased travel volume and related tolling activity in 2022 compared to the prior period. The segment profit margin was 66% for 2022 and 64% for the same period in 2021.

  • The Government Solutions segment generated total revenue of $83.5 million, a 34% increase compared to $62.2 million in the same period in 2021. The increase was mainly due to the inclusion of Redflex operations for the full three-month period compared to only 12 days in the comparable 2021 period, and from organic growth in service revenue in the current period. The segment profit was $29.5 million, a 16% increase from $25.5 million in the prior year. The segment profit margin was 35% for 2022 and 41% for 2021.

  • The Parking Solutions segment generated total revenue of $19.1 million with no comparable amounts in the prior year. The segment profit was $2.8 million with a profit margin of 15% for 2022.

First Half of 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the first half of 2022 was $357.9 million, an increase of 64% compared to $218.5 million for the first half of 2021. Organic service revenue growth was 34% which was mainly due to increase in travel volume and related tolling activity in the Commercial Services segment, and the organic service revenue growth in our Government Solutions segment which was 25%, driven by the school zone speed expansion. The recently acquired Redflex and T2 Systems contributed approximately $60 million to service revenue growth. In addition, product sales increased in 2022 by $9.9 million compared to 2021.

  • Net income (loss): Net income for the first half of 2022 was $39.7 million, or $0.23 per share, based on 161.5 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net loss for the comparable 2021 period was $4.9 million, or $0.03 loss per share, based on 162.3 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $164.1 million for the first half of 2022, compared to $108.9 million in the first half of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 46% of total revenue for the first half of 2022 and 50% for 2021.

Liquidity: As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents were $86.4 million and we generated $65.1 million and $96.4 million, respectively, in cash flows from operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Share Repurchases:

On May 7, 2022, our Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program for up to an aggregate amount of $125.0 million of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock over the next 12 months from time to time in open market transactions, accelerated share repurchases ("ASR") or in privately negotiated transactions, each as permitted under applicable rules and regulations, any of which may use pre-arranged trading plans that are designed to meet the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").

On May 12, 2022, we paid $50.0 million, which represented the aggregate amount authorized for an ASR, and received an initial delivery of 2,739,726 shares of our Class A Common Stock in accordance with an ASR agreement with a third-party financial institution. The final settlement is expected to occur during the third quarter of fiscal year 2022, at which time, a volume-weighted average price calculation over the term of the ASR agreement will be used to determine the final number and the average price of shares repurchased and retired. In addition, we paid $5.2 million and repurchased 336,153 shares of our Class A Common Stock through open market transactions during the second quarter of fiscal year 2022. Our Board of Directors authorized an aggregate purchase amount of $75 million related to the open market repurchases, of which $69.8 million is available for future repurchases as of June 30, 2022. We used existing cash on hand to fund share repurchases in the second quarter of 2022.

Our share repurchases in the future depends on a number of factors, including our financial condition, capital requirements, cash flows, results of operations, future business prospects and other factors our management may deem relevant. The timing, volume and nature of such repurchases are subject to market conditions, applicable securities laws and other factors and may be amended, suspended or discontinued at any time.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements which address our expected future business and financial performance, and may contain words such as "goal," "target," "future," "estimate," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "project," "may," "should," "will" or similar expressions. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding the benefits of our strategic acquisitions, changes in the market for our products and services, expected operating results, such as revenue growth, expansion plans and opportunities, and earnings guidance related to 2022 financial and operational metrics. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and a number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated. These factors include, but are not limited to: (1) the disruption to our business and results of operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; (2) customer concentration in our Commercial Services and Government Solutions segments; (3) decreases in the prevalence of automated and other similar methods of photo enforcement, parking solutions or the use of tolling; (4) risks and uncertainties related to our government contracts, including but not limited to administrative hurdles, legislative changes, termination rights, audits and investigations; (5) decreased interest in outsourcing from our customers; (6) our ability to properly perform under our contracts and otherwise satisfy our customers; (7) our ability to compete in a highly competitive and rapidly evolving market; (8) our ability to keep up with technological developments and changing customer preferences; (9) the success of our new products and changes to existing products and services; (10) our ability to successfully integrate our recent or future acquisitions; (11) failures in or breaches of our networks or systems, including as a result of cyber-attacks; and (12) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in documents filed or to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") by Verra Mobility. This press release should be read in conjunction with the information included in our other press releases, reports and other filings with the SEC. Understanding the information contained in these filings is important in order to fully understand our reported financial results and our business outlook for future periods.

Additional Information

We periodically provide information for investors on our corporate website, www.verramobility.com, and our investor relations website, ir.verramobility.com.

We intend to use our website as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings and public conference calls and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we also disclose certain non-GAAP financial information in this press release. These financial measures are not recognized measures under GAAP and are not intended to be, and should not be, considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC rules. These non-GAAP financial measures may be determined or calculated differently by other companies. As a result, they may not be comparable to similarly titled performance measures presented by other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measurements to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measurements have been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations.

We are not providing a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA included in our 2022 financial guidance above, in reliance on the "unreasonable efforts" exception for forward-looking non-GAAP measures set forth in SEC rules because certain financial information, the probable significance of which cannot be determined, is not available and cannot be reasonably estimated without unreasonable effort and expense. In this regard, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income (loss), due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Due to the uncertainty of estimates and assumptions used in preparing forward-looking non-GAAP measures, we caution investors that actual results could differ materially from these non-GAAP financial projections.

We use these non-GAAP financial metrics to measure our performance from period to period both at the consolidated level as well as within our operating segments, to evaluate and fund incentive compensation programs and to compare our results to those of our competitors. In addition, we also believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding financial and business trends related to our results of operations and that when non-GAAP financial information is viewed with GAAP financial information, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing operating performance. These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as substitutes for net income (loss), cash flows from operations, earnings per share or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest expense, net, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes certain non-cash expenses and other transactions that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, exclude some but not all items that affect our cash flow from operating activities.

Free Cash Flow

We define "Free Cash Flow" as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures.

Adjusted Net Income

We define "Adjusted Net Income" as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude amortization of intangibles and certain non-cash or non-recurring expenses.

Adjusted EPS

We define "Adjusted EPS" as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average shares for the period.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue.
