Factors impacting comparability of our Q4 2017 and Q4 2016 results

 

Earnings and FEPS dilution impact from issue of additional shares of common stock: Our Q4 2017 fundamental earnings per share was impacted by the weighted average issuance of five million shares of our common stock in February 2017 and 10 million shares in Q4 2016;

 

Separation costs related to former chief executive officer: We paid our former chief executive officer $8 million in cash related to his separation from our company in fiscal 2017. In addition, the vesting of 200,000 shares of restricted stock granted to him in August 2016 was accelerated which resulted in an additional stock-based compensation charge of approximately $1.6 million during fiscal 2017;

 

Favorable impact from the weakening of the U.S. dollar against South African Rand: The U.S. dollar depreciated by 12% against the ZAR during Q4 2017, which positively impacted our reported results;

 

Growth in lending and insurance businesses: We continued to achieve volume growth and operating efficiencies in our lending and insurance businesses during Q4 2017, which has resulted in an improved contribution to our financial inclusion revenue and operating income;

 

Ongoing contributions from EasyPay Everywhere: EPE revenue and operating income growth was driven primarily by ongoing EPE adoption as we further expanded our customer base utilizing our ATM infrastructure;

 

Masterpayment expansion costs and $3.8 million allowance for credit losses: Masterpayment has incurred additional employment costs as it grows its staff complement to execute its expansion plan into new markets. We have provided an allowance for credit losses of $3.8 million;

 

Regulatory changes in South Korea governing fees on card transactions: Regulations governing the fees that may be charged on card transactions have adversely impacted our revenues and operating income in South Korea;




  •  

Lower prepaid sales resulting from improved security features to our Manje products: The introduction of our new biometric-linking feature adversely impacted the number of transacting users purchasing prepaid products through our mobile channel;

  •  

Higher transaction-related costs and debt guarantee fee expenses in Q4 2017: We incurred $1.8 million in transaction-related costs pertaining to various acquisition and investment initiatives pursued during 2017 as well as debt guarantee fees that were expensed;

  •  

Q4 2016 gain on change in accounting for Finbond: We recognized a gain of $1.6 million, net of tax, related to the change to the equity method of accounting from available-for-sale method for Finbond.

“The past five months have been among the most eventful and turbulent in the Company’s history, but despite the multiple challenges, we have successfully steadied the ship and put in place the mechanisms and structure to optimize and consolidate our existing businesses where applicable,” said Herman Kotze, CEO of Net1. “We have identified the key opportunities to focus on to create a, sustainable and diversified global financial inclusion solutions company. In fiscal 2018, our focus will be on successfully implementing the identified synergies with Cell C and DNI, expanding our financial inclusion businesses, optimizing our international operations and focusing on key markets and solutions, while actively re-engaging with our shareholders. We also remain fully committed to supporting the South African government to ensure uninterrupted social grant service delivery,” he added.

“We expect the funding of our Cell C and DNI investments to be dilutive to our fiscal 2018 fundamental earnings, partially offset by DNI’s equity accounted earnings, but to be accretive on a combined basis from fiscal 2019. We therefore anticipate our fundamental earnings per share for fiscal 2018 to be at least $1.61. Our guidance assumes that our contract with SASSA remains in effect for the full year on the existing terms and conditions, an updated constant currency base of ZAR 13.62/ $1, a share count of 56.6 million shares, and a tax rate of between 34%-36%,” he concluded.

Results of Operations by Segment and Liquidity

Our operating metrics will be updated and posted on our website (www.net1.com).

South African transaction processing

Segment revenue was $67.7 million in Q4 2017, up 26% compared with Q4 2016 in USD, and 11% higher on a constant currency basis. In ZAR, the increase in segment revenue and operating income was primarily due to higher EPE transaction revenue as a result of increased usage of our ATMs, more low-margin transaction fees generated from card holders using the South African National Payment System, increased inter-segment transaction processing activities, and a modest increase in the number of social welfare grants distributed. Our operating income margin for Q4 2017 and 2016 was 22% and 24%, respectively, and was lower primarily due to annual salary increases granted to our South African employees, but partially offset by and increase in ATM transactions and inter-segment processing.

International transaction processing

Segment revenue was $45.0 million in Q4 2017, down 5% compared with Q4 2016 in USD, and down 16% on a constant currency basis. Segment revenue decreased primarily due to a lower contribution from KSNET due to the regulatory changes implemented by South Korean Regulators which we expect to anniversary in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. This decrease in revenue was partially offset by higher contribution from both Masterpayment and Transact24 compared with Q4 2016. Operating income from this segment during Q4 2017 was lower due to the lower KSNET revenue at KSNET; losses incurred by Masterpayment as it grows its staff complement to execute its expansion plan into new markets and an allowance for credit losses of $3.8 million; and ongoing ZAZOO start-up costs in the UK and India, which was partially offset by a positive contribution by T24. Operating income margin for Q4 2017 decreased to 4% compared to 17% for Q4 2016.

Financial inclusion and applied technologies

Segment revenue was $56.2 million in Q4 2017, down 9% compared with Q4 2016 in USD and down 20% on a constant currency basis. In ZAR, Financial inclusion and applied technologies revenue decreased primarily due to fewer prepaid airtime and other value added services sales, as well as fewer ad-hoc terminal sales, partially offset by increased volumes in our lending and insurance businesses, and an increase in inter-segment revenues. Operating income margin for the Financial inclusion and applied technologies segment was 26% and 22% during Q4 fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively, and has increased primarily due to improved revenues from our lending and insurance businesses and an increase in inter-segment revenues and fewer low margin prepaid product sales, offset by fewer ad hoc terminal and annual salary increases granted to our South African employees.


Corporate/eliminations

Corporate expenses increased primarily due to the costs associated with the separation of our former chief executive officer from us which included an $8.0 million separation payment as well as an additional stock-based compensation charge of approximately $1.6 million related to the accelerated vesting of restricted stock. We also incurred higher transaction-related expenditures, higher amortization costs and a modest increase in U.S. dollar denominated goods and services purchased from third parties and directors’ fees. Our fiscal 2016 corporate expenses include the fair value gain on re-measurement of the previously held interest related to the T24 acquisition and the gain resulting from the change in accounting for Finbond.

Cash flow and liquidity

At June 30, 2017, our cash balances were $258.5 million, which comprised U.S. dollar-denominated balances of $60.0 million, ZAR-denominated balances of ZAR 1.8 billion ($141.5 million), KRW-denominated balances of KRW 55.0 billion ($48.1 million) and other currency deposits, primarily euro, of $8.9 million. The increase in our cash balances from June 30, 2016, was primarily due to the sale of five million shares of our common stock and expansion of most of our core businesses, which was partially offset by the repurchase of shares of our common stock; unscheduled repayments of our Korean debt; payment of taxes; the investment in MobiKwik, Malta FS and Pros Software; a loan to Finbond and capital expenditures.

Excluding the impact of taxes, interest received and interest paid under our Korean debt, the decrease in cash from operating activities relates primarily to the growth of Masterpayment’s working capital finance offering and the separation payment made to our former chief executive officer, offset by an increase in cash from operating activities resulted from improved trading activity during fiscal 2017. Capital expenditures for Q4 2017 and 2016 were $2.7 million and $7.1 million, respectively, and have decreased primarily due to the acquisition of fewer payment processing terminals in South Korea. We paid $10.4 million to acquire an additional interest in MobiKwik, with our June 30, 2017, equity interest at 13.50% . We also repurchased 1.32 million shares from our former chief executive officer for $11.5 million, net of the strike paid to exercise certain options. We also made a scheduled $8.8 million Korean debt repayment and paid a $1.5 million dividend to our non-controlling interest shareholders.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

US securities laws require that when we publish any non-GAAP measures, we disclose the reason for using the non-GAAP measure and provide reconciliation to the directly comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of fundamental net income and fundamental earnings per share and headline earnings per share are non-GAAP measures.

Fundamental net income and fundamental earnings per share

Fundamental net income and earnings per share is GAAP net income and earnings per share adjusted for (1) the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets (net of deferred taxes), (2) stock-based compensation charges and (3) unusual non-recurring items, including the amortization of KSNET debt facility fees, costs related to the IFC transaction and to acquisitions consummated or ultimately not pursued, and U.S. government investigations-related and US lawsuit expenses. Fiscal 2017 also includes separation costs (net of taxes) paid to our former chief executive officer, a refund (net of taxes) related to Korean industry-wide litigation that has now been finalized and South African debt-related guarantee fees expensed. Fiscal 2016 also includes a fair value gain resulting from the acquisition of Transact24, a gain resulting from the change in accounting for Finbond. Management believes that the fundamental net income and earnings per share metric enhances its own evaluation, as well as an investor’s understanding, of our financial performance. Attachment B presents the reconciliation between GAAP and fundamental net income and earnings per share.

Headline earnings per share (“HEPS”)

The inclusion of HEPS in this press release is a requirement of our listing on the JSE. HEPS basic and diluted is calculated using net income which has been determined based on GAAP. Accordingly, this may differ to the headline earnings per share calculation of other companies listed on the JSE as these companies may report their financial results under a different financial reporting framework, including but not limited to, International Financial Reporting Standards.

HEPS basic and diluted is calculated as GAAP net income adjusted for the (profit) loss on sale of property, plant and equipment, and in fiscal 2016, a fair value gain resulting from the acquisition of Transact24 and a gain resulting from the change in accounting for Finbond. Attachment C presents the reconciliation between our net income used to calculate earnings per share basic and diluted and HEPS basic and diluted and the calculation of the denominator for headline diluted earnings per share.

         Denominator for headline diluted earnings per share   57,249     51,224     54,648     48,105  

Weighted average number of shares used to calculate headline earnings per share diluted represent the denominator for basic weighted-average common shares outstanding and unvested restricted shares expected to vest plus the effect of dilutive securities under GAAP. We use this number of fully-diluted shares outstanding to calculate headline earnings per share diluted because we do not use the two-class method to calculate headline earnings per share diluted.
