Date: March 8, 2022

Fourth Consecutive Year of Strong Sales Growth; Full Year Net Sales Increased 20% to $375.1 Million; Net Income of $15.9 Million Decreased 1% due to Income Tax Benefits in Prior Year and Debt Refinancing Costs; Adjusted EBITDA Increased 33% to $76.4 Million

Company Expects Mid-Single Digit Net Sales and Adjusted EBITDA Growth in 2022; Announces $20 Million Senior Secured Notes Paydown

Littleton, CO.

March 8, 2022 -- CPI Card Group Inc. (Nasdaq: PMTS) (“CPI” or the “Company”), a payment technology company and leading provider of credit, debit, and prepaid solutions, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.

Full year net sales increased 20% to $375.1 million, with strong growth from both the Debit and Credit and Prepaid Debit segments. Performance was strong across the Company’s portfolio, with notable growth from secure cards, personalization, instant issuance solutions, and prepaid debit solutions, and was aided by new customer acquisitions, including FinTechs. Net income decreased 1% to $15.9 million due to income tax benefits recorded in 2020 and debt refinancing-related costs incurred in the 2021 first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA increased 33% to $76.4 million, driven by strong sales growth and operating leverage.

“We believe our high-quality and innovative solutions have propelled us to significantly outpace market growth over the last four years,” said Scott Scheirman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CPI. “Our team’s ability to navigate the current supply-chain and labor environment remains a competitive advantage.”

Scheirman continued, “We continue to experience strong customer demand, especially in our Debit and Credit segment. Market growth has been healthy, as U.S. cards in circulation for the top major card networks have increased at an 8% compound annual growth rate over the last three years. We believe we are well positioned for long-term growth with differentiated offerings such as our eco-focused cards, SaaS-based instant issuance solutions, and end-to-end payment services.”

For 2022, CPI currently projects mid-single digit net sales and Adjusted EBITDA growth, with strong growth expected in its Debit and Credit segment, which represented 79% of net sales in 2021, partially offset by anticipated declines in its Prepaid Debit segment due to comparisons with a record year in 2021. Prepaid Debit net sales increased 25% in 2021, aided by a large new portfolio addition and COVID-19-related customer inventory replenishment.

The Company expects its full-year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA margin to be similar to the 2021 full-year margin. Improvement from the fourth quarter 2021 Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected due to the implementation of business initiatives, including price increases, operating leverage from increased sales, and reduced levels of certain expenses incurred in the fourth quarter.


CPI is a top payment solutions provider in the U.S. serving thousands of banks, credit unions and FinTechs. The Company is a leader in the U.S. markets for eco-focused payment cards, personalization and Software-as-a-Service-based instant issuance solutions for small and medium U.S. financial institutions and retail prepaid debit card solutions, and maintains longstanding customer relationships.

The Company expects long-term market growth to be aided by the gradual transition to higher-priced contactless cards, including eco-focused cards, as well as continued financial payment card growth. Visa and Mastercard U.S. credit, debit and prepaid cards in circulation have increased at a compound annual growth rate of 8% over the three-year period ended September 30, 2021, based on figures released by the networks. In addition, a recent report by credit-data agency Trans-Union noted a record 196 million Americans held credit cards at the end of 2021, and U.S. lenders issued more payment cards than ever last year.

2021 Business Highlights

The Company gained new FinTech and traditional financial services customers, benefiting from its offerings of comprehensive end-to-end solutions.
Incremental net sales were generated from customer demand for higher-priced contactless cards, as the U.S. payment card market continues its gradual transition to contactless solutions.
CPI continued to be a leading provider of eco-focused payment card solutions in the U.S., as evidenced by selling nearly 50 million eco-focused cards since launch in late 2019 through the end of 2021.
Innovative personalization services contributed to net sales growth, including from Card@Once® Software-as-a-Service-based instant issuance solutions and CPI On-Demand®.
Tamper-evident packaging solutions drove strong growth in the Prepaid Debit segment and further enhanced the Company’s leadership in the U.S. retail prepaid debit market.
The Company refinanced its debt in the first quarter of 2021, extending maturities and enhancing liquidity. Outstanding debt was reduced by more than $30 million during 2021 and the net leverage ratio was less than 4x at December 31, 2021.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

Net sales increased 11% year-over-year to $93.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Debit and Credit segment net sales increased 11% to $77.4 million. Net sales growth was primarily driven by the ongoing transition to higher-priced contactless cards, including eco-focused cards, the related card personalization, strong increases from Card@Once®, and new customer growth.

Prepaid Debit segment net sales increased 6% to $15.9 million, primarily due to higher volumes from existing customers, including the acquisition of new portfolios by those customers.

In the fourth quarter, gross profit decreased slightly to $30.9 million and gross profit margin was 33.2%, which compared to 36.8% in the prior year. The year-over-year decrease in gross profit margin was primarily due to increased labor costs, partially offset by increased operating leverage from higher net sales.

Year-over-year, income from operations decreased 26% to $9.2 million; net income decreased 91% to $0.7 million, or $0.06 diluted earnings per share; and Adjusted EBITDA decreased 23% to $13.6 million.

The net income decline was primarily due to income tax benefits in the prior year quarter and increased interest expense. Operating income, net income, and Adjusted EBITDA benefited from higher net sales, but were negatively impacted by increased labor costs and higher SG&A expenses, including costs related to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.

As noted in the Company’s third quarter earnings release on November 3, 2021, fourth quarter sales growth and profit margins were not expected to be as strong as the first nine months of 2021, with increased labor, materials and certain other costs expected to be more impactful. As noted above, the Company expects certain mitigating items, including pricing initiatives, to result in a full-year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA margin similar to full-year 2021.

Full Year

2021 Financial Highlights

Net sales increased 20% year-over-year to $375.1 million for the full year.

Debit and Credit segment net sales increased 18% to $296.2 million. Net sales growth was primarily driven by new customer growth and the ongoing transition to contactless cards and related card personalization, and included strong contributions from Card@Once® and CPI On-Demand®.
Prepaid Debit segment net sales increased 25% to $79.2 million, primarily due to higher volumes from existing customers, including the acquisition of new portfolios and the replenishment of retail inventory by those customers.

Net sales in the prior year were impacted by lower customer demand than expected in both segments, which we believe was primarily attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross profit increased 28% to $141.4 million and gross profit margin increased to 37.7% from 35.3% in the prior year, primarily due to operating leverage from higher net sales, partially offset by increased labor costs.

Income from operations increased 55% to $59.5 million; net income decreased 1% to $15.9 million, or $1.36 diluted earnings per share; and Adjusted EBITDA increased 33% to $76.4 million.

The decrease in net income was due to income tax benefits in the prior year, including benefits related to the CARES Act; $5.0 million of debt extinguishment costs incurred during the first quarter


of 2021 when the Company refinanced its debt; and increased interest expense, including $2.6 million of make-whole interest expense related to the debt refinancing.

Operating income, net income, and Adjusted EBITDA compared to the prior year benefited from higher net sales and the resulting operating leverage, partially offset by increased labor costs.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity, and Cash Flow

As of December 31, 2021, cash and cash equivalents was $20.7 million. Cash provided by operating activities in 2021 was $20.2 million and capital expenditures were $10.1 million, yielding Free Cash Flow of $10.2 million, a $4.8 million decrease compared to 2020 primarily due to $33.4 million of increased inventory investments in 2021, partially offset by $9.8 million in collections of cash tax refunds related to the CARES Act.

The Company’s capital structure and allocation priorities are to maintain ample liquidity, invest in the business, including strategic acquisitions, deleverage the balance sheet, and return funds to stockholders.

Total long-term debt principal outstanding as of December 31, 2021 was comprised of the Company’s $310 million 8.625% senior secured notes due 2026. The Company has provided notice to holders that it intends to redeem $20 million of its senior secured notes at a redemption price of 103% of par value, plus accrued and unpaid interest. This redemption is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.

“We delivered strong sales and operating income growth in 2021, driven by our high-quality, innovative solutions and deep customer relationships,” said Amintore Schenkel, Chief Financial Officer. “We also further strengthened our financial position, enabling us to refinance our debt and reduce balance sheet leverage, while investing to support the business for the future.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we have provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release, all reported on a continuing operations basis: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Free Cash Flow, LTM Adjusted EBITDA and Net Leverage Ratio. These non-GAAP financial measures are utilized by management in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis between fiscal periods. We believe that these financial measures are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our underlying operating performance trends compared to historical and prospective periods and our peers. Management also believes that these measures are useful to investors in their analysis of our results of operations and provide improved comparability between fiscal periods. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP measures may be different from similarly titled measures of other companies. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures included in Exhibit E to this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is presented on a continuing operations basis and is defined as EBITDA (which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) adjusted for litigation; stock-based compensation expense; estimated sales tax expense, restructuring and other charges; loss on debt extinguishment; foreign currency gain or loss; litigation settlement gain; and other items that are unusual in nature, infrequently occurring or not considered part of our core operations, as set forth in the reconciliation in Exhibit E. Adjusted EBITDA is intended to show our unleveraged, pre-tax operating results and therefore reflects our financial performance based on operational factors, excluding non-operational, unusual or non-recurring losses or gains. Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. For example, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (a) our capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (b) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (c) the significant interest expenses or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt; (d) tax payments that represent a reduction in cash available to us; (e) any cash requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future; (f) the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we and the lenders under our credit agreement may not consider indicative of our ongoing operations; or (g) the impact of any discontinued operations. In particular, our definition of Adjusted EBITDA allows us to add back certain non-operating, unusual or non-recurring charges that are deducted in calculating net income, even though these are expenses that may recur, vary greatly and are difficult to predict and can represent the effect of long-term strategies as opposed to short-term results. In addition, certain of these expenses represent the reduction of cash that could be used for other purposes. Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage as shown in Exhibit E is computed as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total net sales.

We define LTM Adjusted EBITDA as Adjusted EBITDA (defined previously) for the last twelve months. LTM Adjusted EBITDA is used in the computation of Net Leverage Ratio, and is reconciled in Exhibit E.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin Expectations for 2022

We have provided Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin expectations for 2022 on a non-GAAP basis because certain reconciling items are dependent on future events that either cannot be


controlled or cannot be reliably predicted because they are not part of the Company’s routine activities, any of which could be significant.

Free Cash Flow

We define Free Cash Flow as cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities (continuing operations) less capital expenditures. We use this metric in analyzing our ability to service and repay our debt. However, this measure does not represent funds available for investment or other discretionary uses since it does not deduct cash used to service our debt, nor does it reflect the cash impacts of our discontinued operations. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, cash (used in) provided by operating activities or any other measures of liquidity derived in accordance with GAAP.

Net Leverage Ratio

Management and various investors use the ratio of debt principal outstanding, plus finance lease obligations, less cash, divided by LTM Adjusted EBITDA, or “Net Leverage Ratio”, as a measure of our financial strength when making key investment decisions and evaluating us against peers.
