MALVERN, Pa. July 17, 2017 – USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:USAT), a premier payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market, today announced preliminary estimated financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017.

The company’s financial closing procedures for the quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 are not yet complete. Its consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 are not yet available and the company’s independent registered public accounting firm has not completed its audit of the consolidated financial statements for such period. Set forth below are certain estimates that the company expects to report for the quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. The company’s actual results may differ materially from these estimates.

The following are estimates for the quarter ended June 30, 2017:

·
Revenues of between $32 million to $34 million, representing an increase of between 46% to 55% over revenues for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2016;

The number of net new connections added to the company’s service during the fiscal fourth quarter ended June 30, 2017 reflected a significant order received from an existing customer related to the customer’s efforts to attain a 100% cashless presence in the marketplace.
 


The following are estimates for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017:

·
Revenues of between $102 million to $104 million, representing an increase of between 32% to 34% over revenues during the company’s fiscal year ended June 30, 2016;

·
Adjusted EBITDA of between $6.5 million to $7.3 million, representing an increase of between 9% and 22% over Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016; and
·
Net new connections of 139,000, representing an increase of 45% over net new connections during the company’s fiscal year ended June 30, 2016, reflecting the significant order referred to above.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, the company estimates that approximately 66% of its revenues consisted of license and transaction fees and approximately 34% of its revenues consisted of equipment sales.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, the dollar transaction volume was approximately $800 million which is an increase of approximately 37% over the dollar transaction volume during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016. Based upon the company’s dollar transaction volume during the fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017, the annualized dollar transaction volume would be approximately $900 million, which is an increase of approximately 32% over the company’s dollar transaction volume during the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA Description and Reconciliation

The company considers Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the integration of the VendScreen business, change in fair value of warrant liabilities and stock-based compensation expense. The company has excluded the non-operating item, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, because it represents a non-cash gain or charge that is not related to our operations. The company excluded the non-cash expense, stock-based compensation, as it does not reflect the company’s cash-based operations. The company has excluded the non-recurring costs and expenses incurred in connection with the VendScreen transaction in order to allow more accurate comparison of the financial results to historical operations.
 


Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required by or defined under GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). The company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects and allow for greater transparency with respect to metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making. Adjusted EBTIDA is presented because the company believes it is useful to investors as a measure of comparative operating performance. Additionally, the company utilizes Adjusted EBTIDA as a metric in its executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.

The presentation of this financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including the company’s net income or net loss or net cash used in operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with the company’s net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not a substitute for or a measure of the company’s profitability or net earnings.

The following table reconciles estimated preliminary Adjusted EBITDA to estimated preliminary net income (loss) for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, and actual Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2016:
