Net 1 Reports First Quarter 2020 Results

JOHANNESBURG, November 7, 2019 - Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: UEPS; JSE: NT1) today released results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Q1 2020 Highlights:

  • Revenue of $80.8 million, GAAP EPS of $(0.08) and Fundamental EPS of $(0.02);
  • Operating loss of $2.7 million and adjusted EBITDA of $2.8 million;
  • South African operations remained stable and KSNET operating and EBITDA margin improved further versus Q4 2019;
  • Exercised option to acquire an additional 35% of Bank Frick, which accelerates our ability to provide a vertically integrated fintech solution in Europe.

"During the first quarter we made meaningful progress towards the monetization of some of our assets, accomplished several objectives towards commercial launch of various new products internationally and positioned our South African operations for growth as liquidity becomes available." said Herman Kotzé, CEO. "In the near term we will continue to push forward on our multiple corporate actions to improve our liquidity, in turn allowing us to reduce liabilities, reinvest in our growth businesses, and return capital to shareholders."

"Though our Q1 2020 results benefited from certain ad-hoc technology and telecom product sales, most of our key South African businesses remained stable or posted modest growth compared to Q4 2019, while KSNET showed tangible improvements in its profitability as a result of the transformational actions that we have implemented. Until we have clearer visibility on the quantum and timing of various liquidity events, we believe for fiscal 2020 it is prudent for us to reiterate our guidance of adjusted EBITDA of at least $16 million, using a constant currency base of ZAR 14.27/$1, driven by growth in South Korea and South Africa, and reduced losses from our IPG business," said Alex Smith, CFO.

(1) Revenue for Q4 2019, includes revenue that has been reversed of $19.7 million (ZAR 277.6 million) as a result of the Supreme Court ruling discussed in Note 13 to our audited consolidated financial statements on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019.

(2) Adjusted (negative) EBITDA, fundamental loss (earnings) and fundamental (loss) earnings per share are non-GAAP measures and are described below under "Use of Non-GAAP Measures-negative EBITDA and Adjusted negative EBITDA, and -Fundamental net (loss) income and fundamental (loss) earnings per share." See Attachment B for a reconciliation of GAAP operating (loss) income to negative EBITDA and Adjusted negative EBITDA, and GAAP net (loss) income to fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share.

Factors impacting comparability of our Q1 2020 and Q1 2019 results

  • Decline in revenue: Our revenues declined 36% in ZAR primarily due to the deconsolidation of DNI, the expiration of our SASSA contract, the significant decline in EPE account numbers driven by SASSA's auto-migration of accounts to SAPO, and a reduction in EPE-related financial and value-added services and transaction fees due to a smaller customer base, but partially offset by higher ad hoc terminal and prepaid airtime sales;
  • Ongoing operating losses: We continue to experience operating losses primarily in South Africa as a result of lower revenues, coupled with a high-fixed cost infrastructure, but achieved our targeted break-even EBITDA for the quarter;
  • Lower net interest expense: Net interest expense decreased due to the settlement of our long-term debt in the second half of fiscal 2019, but partially offset by lower average cash balances and higher short-term borrowing to fund ATMs;
  • Adverse foreign exchange movements: The U.S. dollar appreciated 6% against the KRW during fiscal 2020, which adversely impacted our reported results.

Results of Operations by Segment and Liquidity

South African transaction processing

Segment revenue was $19.4 million in Q1 2020, down 49% on a constant currency basis compared with Q1 2019 but up from $18.9 million in Q4 2019. The decrease in segment revenue and operating income was primarily due to the termination of our SASSA contract at the end of Q1 2019. Our revenue and operating income was also adversely impacted by the significant reduction in the number of SASSA grant recipients with SASSA-branded Grindrod cards linked to Grindrod bank accounts as well as a lower number of EPE accounts. These decreases in revenue and operating income were partially offset by higher transaction revenue as a result of increased usage of our ATMs. Our South African transaction processing operating segment activities have been adversely impacted by the loss of EPE customers as a result of SASSA's auto-migration of accounts to SAPO. Our operating (loss) margin for Q1 2020 and 2019 was (17.4%) and (9.3%), respectively.

International transaction processing

Segment revenue was $34.0 million in Q1 2020, down 14% on a constant currency basis compared with Q1 2019 and down from $36.4 million in Q4 2019. Segment revenue was lower during the first quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to an ongoing contraction in IPG transactions processed, specifically meaningfully lower crypto-exchange and China processing activity, modestly lower KSNET revenue as a result of lower transaction values processed and the impact of the weaker KRW/ USD exchange rate on reported KSNET revenue. Operating income during Q1 2020 has improved compared with Q1 2019 due to a reduction in expenses incurred by KSNET and IPG. Operating income margin for Q1 2020 and 2019 was 11.1% and 7.0%, respectively, due to improving profitability at KSNET and reduction of costs at IPG.

Financial inclusion and applied technologies

Segment revenue was $30.1 million in Q1 2020, down 44% on a constant currency basis compared with Q1 2019 but up from $17.6 million in Q4 2019. Segment revenue decreased primarily due to the deconsolidation of DNI, lower lending revenue as a result of our lending book and insurance revenue as a result of fewer customers, and a decrease in inter-segment revenues, partially offset by higher ad hoc technology and telecom product sales. Operating income was significantly lower than Q1 2019, primarily due to the deconsolidation of DNI and lower revenue generation and higher expenses incurred to maintain and expand our financial service infrastructure, partially offset by the ad hoc sales referred to previously. Operating income margin for the Financial inclusion and applied technologies segment was 5.0% and 21.2% during Q1 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Corporate/eliminations

Our corporate expenses decreased primarily due to lower amortization expense as a result of the deconsolidation of DNI, partially offset by higher non-employee director expenses, transaction-related expenditures and external service provider fees.

Cash flow and liquidity

At September 30, 2019, our cash and cash equivalents were $42.0 million and comprised of KRW-denominated balances of KRW 31.7 billion ($26.5 million), ZAR-denominated balances of ZAR 145.8 million ($9.6 million), U.S. dollar-denominated balances of $2.0 million, and other currency deposits, primarily Botswana pula, of $3.0 million, all amounts translated at exchange rates applicable as of September 30, 2019. The decrease in our unrestricted cash balances from June 30, 2019, was primarily due to weaker trading activities, capital expenditures, an additional investment in V2, which was partially offset by utilization of our long-term borrowings and repayment of a loan outstanding by DNI.

Excluding the impact of interest received, interest paid under our South Africa debt and taxes, the decrease in cash provided is primarily due to significantly weaker trading activity during Q1 2020 compared to Q1 2019, as well as the purchase of $12.3 million of Cell C prepaid airtime that is subject to sale restrictions utilizing our borrowings (refer below under financial activities and to Note 3 to our condensed consolidated financial statements). Capital expenditures for Q1 2020 and 2019 were $2.6 million and $3.1 million, respectively, and Q1 2020 capital expenditures relate primarily to the acquisition of additional ATMs in South Africa.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

U.S. securities laws require that when we publish any non-GAAP measures, we disclose the reason for using these non-GAAP measures and provide reconciliations to the directly comparable GAAP measures. The presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, fundamental net (loss) income and fundamental (loss) earnings per share and headline (loss) earnings per share are non-GAAP measures.

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") is GAAP operating (loss) income adjusted for depreciation and amortization and, if applicable, impairment losses. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for costs related to acquisitions and transactions consummated or ultimately not pursued.

Fundamental net (loss) income and fundamental (loss) earnings per share

Fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share is GAAP net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share adjusted for the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets (net of deferred taxes), the amortization of intangible assets (net of deferred taxes) related to equity-accounted investments, stock-based compensation charges, the amortization of debt facility fees and unusual non-recurring items, including costs related to acquisitions and transactions consummated or ultimately not pursued.

Fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share for fiscal 2019 also includes an adjustment for the non-controlling interest portion of the amortization of intangible assets (net of deferred taxes).

We provide earnings guidance only on a non-GAAP basis and do not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because of the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, the amounts of which, based on past experience, could be material.

Management believes that the EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) 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 operating income and EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA; and GAAP net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share and fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share.

Headline (loss) earnings per share ("H(L)EPS")

The inclusion of H(L)EPS in this press release is a requirement of our listing on the JSE. H(L)EPS basic and diluted is calculated using net (loss) income which has been determined based on GAAP. Accordingly, this may differ to the headline (loss) 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.

H(L)EPS basic and diluted is calculated as GAAP net (loss) income adjusted for the impairment loss and (profit) loss on sale of property, plant and equipment. Attachment C presents the reconciliation between our net (loss) income used to calculate (loss) earnings per share basic and diluted and HE(L)PS basic and diluted and the calculation of the denominator for headline diluted (loss) earnings per share.

Calculation of the denominator for headline diluted loss per share

    Q1 '20     Q1 '19  
             
Basic weighted-average common shares outstanding and unvested restricted shares expected to vest under GAAP    56,568     56,723  
Effect of dilutive securities under GAAP.............................   -     50  
Denominator for headline diluted loss per share.......................   56,568     56,773  

Weighted average number of shares used to calculate headline loss 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 loss per share diluted because we do not use the two-class method to calculate headline loss per share diluted.
