"JetPay continued its increasingly strong results this quarter," stated Diane Faro, CEO of JetPay Corporation. "Our 20% organic growth in the quarter and over 17% year-to-date is clear evidence that the enhancements in technology, operations, and sales and marketing we have made across the company are being well-received in the market and hold promise for further growth improvements." Diane continued, "Most encouraging, in addition to the high growth in our Payment Services' business, is the double-digit growth in our HR & Payroll Segment, validating the value of the investments we have made in product, sales, and leadership. With the Ten Lords, Ltd and Providence Interactive Capital, LLC lawsuit and other legacy law suits behind us, we believe that the building blocks we have put in place and the accretive acquisitions we have completed positions JetPay well in the market, which we expect will provide strong returns for our investors."

Financial Results, Second Quarter 2017 Compared to Second Quarter 2016

Revenues were $18.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, comparable to $12.2 million for the same period in 2016. Revenues for our JetPay Payment Services Segment increased $6.2 million, or 69.7%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016. The increase was partially related to the June 2016 acquisition of JetPay Payment Services, FL, which contributed an incremental $3.7 million of revenues in the second quarter of 2017. Revenues for our JetPay HR and Payroll Segment increased $421,000, or 12.5%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016. This increase was attributable to increasing demand for our full-suite, human capital management services.

Operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $(941,000), compared to an operating loss of $(6.8) million for the same period in 2016. Operating loss includes depreciation and amortization expense of $1.1 million and $967,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The decrease in operating loss was partially related to the June 2016 acquisition of JetPay Payment Services, FL contributing an incremental $406,000 of operating income in the second quarter of 2017, and a $5.6 million reduction in professional fees for non-repetitive matters and legal settlement costs, partially offset by an increase in non-cash disposal of fixed assets of $80,000.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $(1.3) million or a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $(4.0) million after accretion of convertible preferred stock of $2.7 million, compared to a net loss of approximately $(5.6) million, or a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $(7.0) million after accretion of convertible preferred stock of $1.4 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease in net loss was primarily related to the decrease in operating loss described above.

Financial Results, First Six Months of 2017 Compared to First Six Months of 2016

Revenues were $37.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, comparable to $23.9 million for the same period in 2016. Revenues for our JetPay Payment Services Segment increased $13.1 million, or 81.2%, for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016. The increase was partially related to the June 2016 acquisition of JetPay Payment Services, FL, which contributed an incremental $8.8 million of revenues in the first six months of 2017. Revenues for our JetPay HR & Payroll Segment increased $764,000, or 10.0%, for the six months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to the same period in 2016. This increase was attributable to increasing demand for our full-suite, human capital management services.

Operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $(719,000), compared to a loss of $(7.3) million for the same period in 2016. Operating loss includes depreciation and amortization expense of $2.2 million and $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The decrease in operating loss was partially related to the acquisition of JetPay Payment Services, FL, which contributed an incremental $891,000 of operating income in the first six months of 2017, as well as a $6.1 million reduction in professional fees for non-repetitive matters and legal settlement costs, partially offset by an increase in non-cash stock option costs of $208,000 and an increase in non-cash loss on disposal of fixed assets of $80,000.

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $(1.5) million or a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $(6.3) million after accretion of convertible preferred stock of $4.8 million, compared to a net loss of approximately $(6.6) million, or a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $(9.4) million after accretion of convertible preferred stock of $2.8 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, as defined in Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company reports its financial results in compliance with GAAP, but believes that also discussing non-GAAP measures provides investors with financial measures it uses in the management of its business. The Company defines EBITDA as operating income (loss), before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangibles, and non-cash changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liability. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, as defined above, plus certain non-recurring items, including certain legal and professional costs for non-repetitive matters, legal settlement costs, non-cash stock based compensation costs, and non-cash losses on the disposal of fixed assets. These measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Management uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as indicators of the Company's operating performance and ability to fund acquisitions, capital expenditures and other investments and, in the absence of refinancing options, to repay debt obligations. Management believes EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are helpful to investors in evaluating the Company's operating performance because non-cash costs and other items that management believes are not indicative of its results of operations are excluded. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are supplemental non-GAAP measures, which have limitations when used as an analytical tool. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, may differ from GAAP measures with the same names, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies. For a description of our use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to operating income (loss), see the section of this press release titled "EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation."
