VeriFone Systems, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), the global leader in secure electronic payment solutions, today announced financial results for the three months ended October 31, 2013 ("Q4 FY13") and fiscal year ended October 31, 2013 ("FY13").

Revenues - Non-GAAP net revenues for Q4 FY13 were $432 million, compared to $489 million a year ago, a 12% decrease. Non-GAAP net revenues for FY13 were $1.71 billion, a 9% decrease compared to the $1.89 billion result for FY12. GAAP net revenues were $431 million for the latest quarter, compared to $485 million a year ago, an 11% decrease. For FY13, GAAP net revenues totaled $1.70 billion, a 9% decrease compared to the $1.87 billion total for FY12.

Earnings per Share - Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for Q4 FY13 was $0.27, compared to $0.76 a year ago. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for FY13 was $1.44, compared to the $2.74 result for FY12. GAAP net loss per share for the latest quarter and FY13 was $2.26 and $2.73, respectively. In Q4 FY13, the company recorded a non-cash tax charge of $242M or $2.21 per share to establish a valuation allowance against a significant portion of its deferred tax assets. This accounting treatment reflects the company's assessment of whether these deferred tax assets will be realizable in the future, but has no effect on the company's ability to utilize these deferred tax assets, such as loss carry forwards and tax credits, to reduce future cash tax payments.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and its attachments include several non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenues; net revenues from businesses acquired in the past 12 months; non-GAAP organic net revenues; non-GAAP organic net revenues at constant currency; non-GAAP cost of net revenues; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP research and development expenses; non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses; non-GAAP general and administrative expenses; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP operating income (loss); non-GAAP interest, net; non-GAAP other income (expense), net; non-GAAP income (loss) before income taxes; non-GAAP provision for (benefit from) income taxes; non-GAAP income tax rate; non-GAAP consolidated net income (loss); non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests; non-GAAP net income (loss) attributable to VeriFone Systems, Inc. stockholders; non-GAAP diluted shares; non-GAAP net income (loss) per share attributable to VeriFone Systems, Inc. stockholders; non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share, and free cash flow, as well as many of these non-GAAP financial measures as a percentage of non-GAAP net revenues. In order to assist investors, this press release provides consolidated statement of operations information on a non-GAAP basis, reflecting the adjustments made in the non-GAAP measures listed above.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help it to evaluate VeriFone's performance and operations and to compare VeriFone's current results with those for prior periods as well as with the results of peer companies. VeriFone incurs, due to differences in debt, capital structure and investment history, certain income and expense items, such as stock based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles and other non-cash expenses, that differ significantly from VeriFone's competitors. The non-GAAP financial measures reflect VeriFone's reported operating performance without such items. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in VeriFone's budget and planning process. Management believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors in comparing VeriFone's operating performance in any period with its performance in other periods and with the performance of other companies that represent alternative investment opportunities. These non-GAAP financial measures contain limitations and should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, disclosures made in accordance with GAAP.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and may therefore differ from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect all amounts and costs, such as acquisition related costs, employee stock-based compensation costs, cash that may be expended for future capital expenditures or contractual commitments, working capital needs, cash used to service interest or principal payments on VeriFone's debt, income taxes and the related cash requirements, and restructuring charges, associated with VeriFone's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Furthermore, VeriFone expects to continue to incur income and expense items that are similar to those that are excluded by the non-GAAP adjustments described herein. Management compensates for these limitations by also relying on the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Note A: Non-GAAP net revenues. Non-GAAP net revenues exclude the fair value decrease (step-down) in deferred revenue at acquisition. Although the step-down of deferred revenue fair value at acquisition is reflected in our GAAP financial statements, it results in net revenues immediately post-acquisition that are lower than net revenues that would be recognized in accordance with GAAP on those same services if they were sold under contracts entered into post-acquisition. We adjust the step-down to achieve comparability to net revenues of the acquired entity earned pre-acquisition and to our GAAP net revenues to be earned on contracts sold in future periods. These non-GAAP net revenues amounts are not intended to be a substitute for our GAAP disclosures of net revenues, and should be read together with our GAAP disclosures.

Note B: Non-GAAP organic net revenues. "Non-GAAP organic net revenues" is a non-GAAP financial measure of net revenues excluding "net revenues from businesses acquired in the past 12 months" (as defined below). VeriFone determines non-GAAP organic net revenues by deducting net revenues from businesses acquired in the past 12 months from non-GAAP net revenues. Where non-GAAP organic net revenues is presented for a period longer than one fiscal quarter, it is computed as the sum of the non-GAAP organic net revenues for each quarter during that period. This non-GAAP measure is used to evaluate VeriFone net revenues without the impact of net revenues from acquired businesses, as VeriFone analyzes performance both with and without the impact of our recent acquisitions.

Net revenues from businesses acquired in the past 12 months consists of net revenues derived from the sales channels of acquired resellers and distributors, and net revenues from system solutions and services attributable to businesses acquired in the 12 months preceding the respective financial quarter(s). For acquisitions of small businesses that are integrated within a relatively short time after the close of the acquisition, we assume quarterly net revenues attributable to such acquired businesses during the 12 months following acquisition remain at the same level as in the first full quarter after the acquisition closed. During periods prior to our acquisition of former customers, net revenues from businesses acquired in the past 12 months consists of sales by VeriFone to that former customer for that period.

Note C: Non-GAAP organic net revenues at constant currency. VeriFone determines non-GAAP organic net revenues at constant currency by recomputing non-GAAP organic net revenues denominated in currencies other than U.S. Dollars in the current fiscal period using average exchange rates for that particular currency during the corresponding financial period of the prior year. VeriFone uses this non-GAAP measure to evaluate performance on a comparable basis excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. Where non-GAAP organic net revenues at a constant currency is presented for a period longer than one fiscal quarter, it is computed as the sum of the non-GAAP organic net revenues at constant currency for each quarter during that period.

Note D: Acquisition, Divestiture and Restructure Related. VeriFone adjusts certain revenues and expenses for items that are the result of acquisitions, divestitures and restructuring programs.

Acquisition related adjustments include the amortization of purchased intangible assets and fixed asset fair value adjustments, incremental costs associated with acquisitions (such as professional fees, legal fees related to litigation assumed as part of acquisitions, and one-time charges related to acquired balances), acquisition integration expenses (such as costs of personnel required to assist with integration transitions), loss on financial instruments entered into to fix the acquisition purchase price in U.S. dollars when it is payable in foreign currencies and fair value increase (step-up) of inventory on acquisition. In addition, we adjust for changes in estimate, final resolution of contingencies that existed at the time of acquisition or collectability of associated notes receivable. Acquisition related expenses also result from events which arise from unforeseen circumstances which often occur outside the ordinary course of business. These adjustments do not include the fair value adjustments relating to certain contracts acquired as part of an acquisition whereby third parties have yet to fulfill their contractual obligations.

In January 2013 we divested of certain assets and business operations related to one of our product offerings. The estimated gain on the divestiture, as well as the net revenues, cost of net revenues and operating expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2013, that are attributable to the divested assets and business operations have been excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Restructure related adjustments include all restructure charges as defined in accordance with GAAP.

VeriFone analyzes the performance of its operations without regard to these adjustments. In determining whether any acquisition, divestiture or restructure related adjustment is appropriate, VeriFone takes into consideration, among other things, how such adjustments would or would not aid the understanding of the performance of its operations.

Note E: Stock-Based Compensation. Our non-GAAP financial measures eliminate the effect of expense for stock-based compensation because they are non-cash expenses that management believes are not reflective of ongoing operating results. In particular, because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types which affect the calculations of stock-based compensation, we believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation allows for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to our peer companies. Stock-based compensation is very different from other forms of compensation. A cash salary or bonus has a fixed and unvarying cash cost. In contrast the expense associated with an award of an option or other stock based award is unrelated to the amount of compensation ultimately received by the employee; and the cost to the company is based on valuation methodology and underlying assumptions that may vary over time and does not reflect any cash expenditure by the company. Furthermore, the expense associated with granting an employee an option or other stock based award can be spread over multiple years and may be reversed based on forfeitures which may differ from our original assumptions unlike cash compensation expense which is typically recorded contemporaneously with the time of award or payment.

Note F: Other Charges and Income. VeriFone excludes certain revenue, expenses and other income (expense) that are the result of unique or unplanned events that are noted below. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financial statements, we exclude them in our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe these items may limit the comparability of our ongoing operations with prior and future periods. These adjustments for other charges and income include:

  • Estimated penalties due to customers related to the July 2012 fire that occurred in one of our repair and staging facilities in Brazil. These potential customer penalties are associated with deliveries that were delayed after the fire and are reflected as contra-revenue in accordance with GAAP.
  • The $6.8 million charge to costs of net revenues during the three months ended April 30, 2013 related to revenue generating assets of our UK Taxi business for which the net book value of the assets exceeded their fair value since the UK Taxi business has not met expectations.
  • Litigation loss contingency expense.
  • Certain costs incurred in connection with senior executive management changes, such as separation payments, legal fees and recruiter fees.
  • Certain personnel expenses that were incurred only for a fixed short period of time in connection with scheduled operational changes as we streamlined and centralized some of our global operations, including international distribution and repair facilities.
  • Gains or losses on financial transactions, such as the accelerated amortization of capitalized debt issuance costs due to the early repayment of debt, or fees incurred to modify debt arrangements.
  • Non-cash interest expense recorded relating to the adoption of ASC 470-20 Debt with conversion and other options.

We assess our operating performance with these amounts included and excluded, and by providing this information, we believe that users of our financial statements are better able to understand the financial results of what we consider to be our continuing operations.

Income taxes are adjusted for the tax effect of the adjusting items related to our non-GAAP financial measures and to reflect our estimate of cash taxes on a non-GAAP basis, in order to provide our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the on-going comparable performance and future liquidity of our business. Our non-GAAP tax rates were 14% for the period May 1, 2012, through October 31, 2013, 18% for the period December 31, 2011, through April 30, 2012, and 20% for the period November 1, 2011, through December 30, 2011.

Note G: Non-GAAP diluted shares. During the three and twelve months ended October 31, 2013 and the three months ended July 31, 2013, the diluted non-GAAP weighted average shares include additional shares that are dilutive, because we have a non-GAAP net income and GAAP basis net loss.

During the twelve months ended October 31, 2012, the diluted non-GAAP weighted average shares exclude shares that are dilutive for GAAP purposes related to our Senior Convertible Notes that matured on June 15, 2012. In connection with our 1.375% Senior Convertible Notes we had entered into certain note hedge transactions. We repaid these Notes in cash upon maturity on June 15, 2012, and the then outstanding note hedge transactions expired unused on June 15, 2012. Non-GAAP diluted shares reflect the offset of shares that would have been deliverable in the periods presented prior to the maturity of the Notes pursuant to note hedge transactions. Under GAAP, shares delivered in hedge transactions are not considered offsetting shares in the fully diluted share calculation until they are actually delivered.

Note H: Free Cash Flow. Free cash flow is not defined under GAAP. Therefore, it should not be considered a substitute for income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. VeriFone determines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. We use this non-GAAP measure to evaluate our operating cash spend including the impact of our investments in long-term operating assets, such as property, equipment and capitalized software.
