  • ATM operating revenues of $333.4 million, up 1% from $329.8 million in the prior year and up 3% on a constant-currency basis.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $87.1 million, up 13% from $77.4 million in the prior year, and up 15% on a constant- currency basis.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of 24.8%, up 200 basis points from the prior year.
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.79, up 27%.
  • Cash flow from operations of $176.5 million compared to $74.8 million in the prior year driven by a significant increase in restricted cash and corresponding liabilities.
  • Adjusted free cash flow of $48.2 million compared to $47.8 million in the prior year.
  • Executed agreements to place over 1,000 ATMs.
  • Significant renewal and expansion with leading retail partner Rite Aid.

“The third quarter results were highlighted by solid revenue and profit growth in both our North America and Europe & Africa segments. Revenue growth, coupled with continued operational execution, allowed us to deliver strong margin expansion in the quarter, resulting in double digit growth in Adjusted EBITDA. We continue to strengthen our two-sided network with several key partnerships recently executed across leading financial institutions, FinTechs, and retailers.  Branch transformation continues to be a priority for financial institutions of all sizes, and given the breadth and strength of our ATM network, we are well positioned to capitalize on this growing trend.  Looking ahead, we are increasingly confident in our ability to leverage our network to deliver profitable growth and strong returns for our shareholders,” commented Edward H. West, Cardtronics’ chief executive officer.

Risk factors are described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, and those set forth from time-to-time in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

DISCLOSURE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In order to assist readers of our consolidated financial statements in understanding the operating results that management uses to evaluate the business and for financial planning purposes, the Company presents the following non-GAAP measures as a complement to financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP: Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Gross Margin, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Tax Rate, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, and certain other results presented on a constant-currency basis.  Management believes that the presentation of these measures and the identification of notable, non-cash, non-operating costs, and/or (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods enhance an investor’s understanding of the underlying trends in the Company’s business and provide for better comparability between periods in different years.  Management also believes that these measures are relevant and provide useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the Company’s industry to provide a baseline for evaluating and comparing our operating performance and, in the case of free cash flow, our liquidity results. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in managing and measuring the performance of the business, including setting and measuring incentive based compensation.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities, or other income or cash flow measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures used herein to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in tabular form at the end of this earnings release.  In addition, the non-GAAP measures that are used by the Company are not defined in the same manner by all companies and therefore may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or other income or cash flow measures contained within our financial statements.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Margin

Adjusted Gross Profit represents total revenues less the total cost of revenues, excluding depreciation, accretion, and amortization of intangible assets. Adjusted Gross Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted Gross Profit by total revenues.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

EBITDA is calculated by adding interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and accretion and amortization to net income. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA exclude these items as these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within the Company’s industry depending upon capital structures, tax jurisdictions, accounting methods, the book values of assets and the methods by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes certain non-cash, non-operating costs and/or (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods. These excluded items consist of share-based compensation expense, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, restructuring expenses, gains or losses on disposal and impairment of assets and other income and expense. Adjusted EBITDA is also calculated to exclude amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues. 

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share and Adjusted Tax Rate

Adjusted Net Income represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, before amortization of intangible assets and deferred financing costs, gains or losses on disposal and impairment of assets, share-based compensation expense, certain other income and expense amounts, acquisition and divestiture-related expenses, certain non-operating expenses, and (if applicable in a particular period) certain costs not anticipated to occur in future periods (together, the “Adjustments”). The non-GAAP tax rate used to calculate Adjusted Net Income was approximately 23.7% and 23.4% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively, and 24.6% and 24.9% for three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. The non-GAAP tax rates represent the GAAP tax rate for the period as adjusted by the estimated tax impact of the items adjusted from the measure. Adjusted Net Income per diluted share is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

Adjusted Free Cash Flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities less the impact of changes in restricted cash due to the timing of payments of restricted cash liabilities and less payments for capital expenditures, including those financed through direct debt, but excluding acquisitions. The Adjusted Free Cash Flow measure does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as mandatory principal payments on portions of the Company’s long-term debt.

Constant-Currency

Management calculates certain GAAP as well as non-GAAP measures on a constant-currency basis using the average foreign currency exchange rates applicable in the corresponding period of the previous year and applying these rates to the measures in the current reporting period to assess performance and eliminate the effect foreign currency exchange rates have on comparability between periods.
