JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: UEPS; JSE: NT1) today released results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Financial Metrics:

  • Continued momentum in EPE account openings;
  • At September 30, 2021, unrestricted cash of $188 million and no debt;
  • Revenue of $34.5 million, a decrease of 2% from Q1 2021;
  • Operating loss of $(11.2) million in Q1 2022;
  • GAAP EPS of $(0.23) and Fundamental EPS of $(0.22); and
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(10.1) million.

“While the South African economy continued to be challenging in the first quarter, I am pleased that the Net1 team continued to stay focused on executing our transformational plans and the long-term commitment to unlock value for all of our stakeholders. Our strategic imperative is to return the Financial Services business to break-even and into profitability as soon as possible,” said Chris Meyer, Group CEO of Net1. “We also continued to deliver on our strategic priorities with the announcement earlier this month to acquire Connect Group, one of the fastest growing fintech companies in South Africa. This compelling acquisition is an important milestone at the beginning of our transformative journey as it significantly enhances our scale, propels our growth trajectory and positions us well to become the leading South African fintech platform.”

(1) Q1 2021 has been restated to correct an error with respect to the recognition of certain revenue and related cost of goods sold, IT processing, servicing and support. The financial information for the three months ended September 30, 2020, has been restated with the effect of decreasing revenue by $2.0 million. Refer to Note 1 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

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

Factors impacting comparability of our Q1 2022 and Q1 2021 results

  • Lower revenue: Our revenues decreased 14% in ZAR primarily due to fewer prepaid airtime and hardware sales and lower transaction fee revenue;
  • Lower operating losses: Operating losses have reduced by 9% in ZAR compared with the prior period primarily due to the closure of IPG and lower legal and consulting fees (excluding those related to the Connect Group transaction). We continue to experience operating losses because of depressed revenues and have embarked on a plan to reduce operating expenses, including closing our mobile payment infrastructure;
  • Foreign exchange movements: The U.S. dollar was 13% weaker against the ZAR during Q1, 2021, which impacted our reported results.

Results of Operations by Segment and Liquidity

Processing

Segment revenue, excluding IPG, was $21.4 million in Q1 2022, down 13% compared with Q1 2021, but up 4% compared with Q4 2021 on a constant currency basis. Excluding IPG, segment revenue decreased primarily due to fewer prepaid airtime sales and a reduction in volume-driven transaction fees, including as a result of the South African banking industry’s decision to waive fees charged to customers for utilizing other banks’ ATMs in August and September 2021. Excluding IPG, Processing’s operating loss has been impacted by the lower revenue. Our operating loss margin (calculated as operating (loss) income divided by revenue) for Q1 2022 and 2021 was (33.4%) and (32.4%), respectively. Excluding IPG, our operating loss margin for the Processing segment was (21.3%) during the Q1 2021.

Financial services

Segment revenue was $10.6 million in Q1 2022, up 12% compared with Q1 2021 and marginally higher compared to Q4 2021 on a constant currency basis. Segment revenue increased due to higher account fee revenue following an increase in the number of EPE accounts, an increase in lending revenue as a result of improved lending activity, and an increase in insurance revenues from an increase in business written. The increase in operating loss is primarily due to the increase in insurance-related claims experienced this quarter attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as higher employee costs compared with the prior period. Our operating loss margin for Q1 2022 and 2021 was (28.2%) and (28.7%), respectively.

Technology

Segment revenue was $4.8 million in Q1 2022, down 32%, compared with Q1 2021, but up 1% compared with Q4 2021 on a constant currency basis. Segment revenue decreased due to fewer hardware sales compared to the prior period. Operating income for Q1, 2021 was directly impacted by the lower revenue compared with fiscal 2021. Our operating income margin for the Technology segment was 12.5% and 28.6% during Q1 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Corporate/eliminations

Our corporate expenses for fiscal 2022 decreased compared with fiscal 2021 due to lower legal and consulting fees incurred. We expect to incur additional expenses related to the Connect Group transaction in the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

Cash flow and liquidity

At September 30, 2021, our cash and cash equivalents were $188.5 million and comprised of U.S. dollar-denominated balances of $162.5 million, ZAR-denominated balances of ZAR 0.4 billion ($23.7 million), and other currency deposits, primarily Botswana pula, of $2.3 million, all amounts translated at exchange rates applicable as of September 30, 2021. The decrease in our unrestricted cash balances from June 30, 2021, was primarily due to weak trading activities and utilization of cash reserves to fund our operations. We believe we have sufficient cash reserves to support us through the next twelve months. Together with our existing cash reserves, we also believe that our credit facilities are sufficient to fund our ATM network.

Excluding the impact of income taxes, cash used in operating activities during Q1 2022 was impacted by the cash losses incurred by the majority of our continuing operations. Capital expenditures for Q1 2022 and 2021 were $0.7 million and $0.3 million, respectively.

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 most 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. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for unusual non-recurring items, 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), stock-based compensation charges, 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 2021 also includes impairment losses related to our equity-accounted investment and the deferred tax liability reversal related to the impairment of the equity-accounted investment.

Management believes that the EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, fundamental net (loss) income and (loss) earnings per share metrics enhance 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 losses related to our equity-accounted investments 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 H(L)EPS basic and diluted and the calculation of the denominator for headline diluted (loss) earnings per share.

Reconciliation of net loss used to calculate loss per share basic and diluted and headline loss per share basic and diluted:

Three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020

    2021   2020
         
Net loss (USD’000) (12,994 )   (28,958 )
Adjustments:      
  Impairment of equity method investments -     16,844  
  Impairment loss 140     -  
  Profit on sale of property, plant and equipment (165 )   (10 )
  Tax effects on above 7     (1,350 )
         
Net loss used to calculate headline loss (USD’000) (13,012 )   (13,474 )
         
Weighted average number of shares used to calculate net loss per share basic loss and headline loss per share basic loss (‘000) 56,678     57,119  
         
Weighted average number of shares used to calculate net loss per share diluted loss and headline loss per share diluted loss (‘000) 56,809     57,119  
         
Headline loss per share:      
  Basic, in USD (0.23 )   (0.24 )
  Diluted, in USD (0.23 )   (0.24 )

Calculation of the denominator for headline diluted loss per share

      Q1 2022     Q1 2021  
               
Basic weighted-average common shares outstanding and unvested restricted shares expected to vest under GAAP 56,678     57,119  
  Effect of dilutive securities under GAAP 131     -  
    Denominator for headline diluted loss per share 56,809     57,119  

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