Factors impacting comparability of our Q1 2018 and Q1 2017 results

  • Earnings and FEPS dilution impact from issue of additional shares of common stock: Our Q1 2018 fundamental earnings per share was impacted by the issuance of five million shares of our common stock in February 2017;
  • Favorable impact from the weakening of the U.S. dollar against South African Rand: The U.S. dollar depreciated by 6% against the ZAR during Q1 2018, which positively impacted our reported results;
  • Growth in insurance businesses: We continued to experience volume growth and operating efficiencies in our insurance businesses during Q1 2018, which has resulted in an improved contribution to our financial inclusion revenue and operating income;
  • Ongoing contributions from EasyPay Everywhere: EPE revenue and operating income growth was driven primarily by ongoing EPE adoption as we further expanded our customer base utilizing our ATM infrastructure;
  • Higher equity accounted earnings related to DNI: The acquisition of 45% of DNI has positively impacted our reported results by approximately $1.4 million, before amortization of intangible assets, net of deferred taxes;
  • Adverse impact on interest income from utilization of surplus cash to invest in Cell C and DNI: Our interest income was adversely impacted by approximately $1.2 million, before the impact of any taxes, as a result of our utilization of approximately ZAR 1.4 billion and $23.0 million, respectively, of our surplus cash reserves to partially fund our investments in Cell C and DNI;
  • Higher interest expense resulting from South African facility: Our interest expense increased due to the South African lending facility we obtained in August 2017, to partially fund our 15% investment in Cell C;
  • Masterpayment expansion costs: Masterpayment has incurred additional employment costs as it grows its staff complement to execute its expansion plan into new markets;
  • Lower prepaid sales and ad hoc terminal sales: The number of transacting users purchasing prepaid products through our mobile channel decreased due to security features introduced in fiscal 2017. In addition, our results were adversely impacted by few ad hoc terminal sales; and
  • Higher transaction-related costs in fiscal 2018: We incurred $1.5 million in transaction-related costs pertaining to various acquisition and investment initiatives pursued during Q1 2018.

"Our execution has progressed steadily on our key focus areas including our strategic review of the various business units, consolidation of various operations, conclusion of our investments in Cell C, DNI and Bank Frick, as well as providing our support to the South African government, and re-engaging with our shareholders," said Herman Kotze, CEO of Net1. "We are excited with the numerous identified opportunities within and between our various business units and investments. In fiscal 2018, we intend to successfully implement the identified synergies with Cell C and DNI, expand our financial inclusion businesses to carefully selected markets, optimize our existing international operations and focus on key markets and solutions. As always, we remain fully committed to supporting the South African government to ensure uninterrupted social grant service delivery," he added.

"To reiterate from last quarter, we expect the funding of our Cell C and DNI investments to be dilutive to our fiscal 2018 fundamental earnings, partially offset by DNI's equity accounted earnings, but to be accretive on a combined basis from fiscal 2019. We therefore anticipate our fundamental earnings per share for fiscal 2018 to remain at least $1.61. Our guidance assumes no significant disruption in any of our key business units, a constant currency base of ZAR 13.62/$1, a share count of 56.6 million shares, and a tax rate of between 34%-36%," he concluded.

Supplemental Presentation for Q1 2018 Results

A supplemental presentation for Q1 2018 will be posted to the Investor Relations page of our website - ir.net1.com one hour prior to our earnings call on Friday, November 10, 2017.

Results of Operations by Segment and Liquidity

Our operating metrics will be updated and posted on our website (www.net1.com).

South African transaction processing

Segment revenue was $66.4 million in Q1 2018, up 15% compared with Q1 2017 in USD, and 8% higher on a constant currency basis. The increase in segment revenue was primarily due to higher EPE transaction revenue as a result of increased usage of our ATMs, increased inter-segment transaction processing activities and a modest increase in the number of social welfare grants distributed. Operating income decreased primarily due to an increase in inter-segment charges, the impact of annual salary increases granted to our South African employees in October 2016 and increases in goods and services purchased from third parties, partially offset by higher EPE transaction revenue as a result of increased usage of our ATMs, increased inter-segment transaction processing activities and a modest increase in the number of social welfare grants distributed. Our operating income margin for Q1 2018 and 2017 was 19% and 24%, respectively. Our fiscal 2018 margin was adversely impacted by the annual salary increases granted to our South African employees in October 2016 and increases in goods and services purchased from third parties.

International transaction processing

Segment revenue was $46.0 million in Q1 2018, largely flat compared with Q1 2017 in USD, and down 7% on a constant currency basis. Segment revenue was moderately lower during Q1 2018, primarily due to ongoing impact of regulatory changes in South Korea on KSNET's revenue, largely offset by increased contributions from Masterpayment and Transact24. Operating income during Q1 2018 was lower due to a decrease in revenue at KSNET, losses incurred by Masterpayment as it grows its staff complement to execute its expansion plan into new markets, and ongoing operating costs in India, which was partially offset by a positive contribution by T24. Operating income margin for Q1 2018 and 2017 was 12% and 13%, respectively.

Financial inclusion and applied technologies

Segment revenue was $54.3 million in Q1 2018, down 15% compared with Q1 2017 in USD and down 20% on a constant currency basis. Financial inclusion and applied technologies revenue decreased primarily due to fewer prepaid airtime and other value added services sales, as well as lower ad hoc terminal sales, partially offset by increased volumes in our insurance businesses, and an increase in inter-segment revenues. Operating income margin for the Financial inclusion and applied technologies segment was 26% and 24% during Q1 2018 and 2017, respectively, and has increased primarily due to fewer low margin prepaid product sales, improved revenues from our insurance businesses and an increase in inter-segment revenues, offset by fewer ad hoc terminal and annual salary increases granted to our South African employees.

Corporate/eliminations

Our corporate expenses have increased primarily due to higher transaction-related expenditures and modest increases in U.S. dollar denominated goods and services purchased from third parties and directors' fees. Our corporate expenses for Q1 2017, includes the reversal of $1.8 million of stock-based compensation charges.

Cash flow and liquidity

At September 30, 2017, our cash and cash equivalents were $138.4 million and comprised mainly KRW-denominated balances of KRW 52.6 billion ($45.7 million), CHF-denominated balances of CHF 40.5 million ($41.5 million), ZAR- denominated balances of ZAR 501.2 million ($37.0 million), U.S. dollar-denominated balances of $6.9 million, and other currency deposits, primarily euros, of $7.3 million, all amounts translated at exchange rates applicable as of September 30, 2017. The decrease in our cash balances from June 30, 2017, was primarily due to our investments in DNI and Cell C, a scheduled repayment of our South African long-term debt, and capital expenditures, which was partially offset by cash generated by most of our core businesses. We converted some of our USD reserves to CHF in late September 2017 in order to settle the investment consideration related to the Bank Frick transaction in early October 2017.

Excluding the impact of interest received, interest paid under our Korean and South Africa debt and taxes, the decrease in cash flow relates primarily to the growth of Masterpayment's working capital finance offering and weaker trading activity during fiscal 2018 compared to 2017. Capital expenditures for Q1 2018 and 2017 were $1.5 million and $3.4 million, respectively, and have decreased primarily due to the acquisition of fewer payment processing terminals in South Korea. We paid approximately $73.9 million (ZAR 945.0 million) for a 45% interest in DNI and $151.0 million (ZAR 2.0 billion) for a 15% interest in Cell C. We utilized approximately $94.3 million (ZAR 1.25 billion) of our South African facility to part-fund our investment in Cell C and utilized approximately $0.3 million of our Korean facility to pay a portion of our quarterly interest due. We also made a scheduled South African debt facility payment of $14.3 million (ZAR 187.5 million).

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

US securities laws require that when we publish any non-GAAP measures, we disclose the reason for using the non-GAAP measure and provide reconciliation to the directly comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of fundamental net income and fundamental earnings per share and headline earnings per share are non-GAAP measures.

Fundamental net income and fundamental earnings per share

Fundamental net income and earnings per share is GAAP net income and earnings per share adjusted for (1) the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets (net of deferred taxes), (2) stock-based compensation charges (reversals) and (3) unusual non-recurring items, including the amortization of South African and Korean debt facility fees and costs related to acquisitions and transactions consummated or ultimately not pursued. Fundamental net income and earnings per share for Q1 2018 also excluded the amortization of intangibles assets (net of deferred taxes) related to equity accounted investments. Management believes that the fundamental net income and earnings per share metric enhances its own evaluation, as well as an investor's understanding, of our financial performance. Attachment B presents the reconciliation between GAAP and fundamental net income and earnings per share.

We provide earnings guidance only on a non-GAAP basis and do not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking fundamental earnings per share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because of the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, the amounts of which, based on past experience, could be material.

Headline earnings per share ("HEPS")

The inclusion of HEPS in this press release is a requirement of our listing on the JSE. HEPS basic and diluted is calculated using net income which has been determined based on GAAP. Accordingly, this may differ to the headline 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.

HEPS basic and diluted is calculated as GAAP net income adjusted for the (profit) loss on sale of property, plant and equipment. Attachment C presents the reconciliation between our net income used to calculate earnings per share basic and diluted and HEPS basic and diluted and the calculation of the denominator for headline diluted earnings per share.

Calculation of the denominator for headline diluted earnings per share
 
  Q1 '18 Q1 '17
 
Basic weighted-average common shares outstanding and unvested restricted shares expected to vest under GAAP 57,196 53,832
 Effect of dilutive securities under GAAP 47 91
  Denominator for headline diluted earnings per share 57,243 53,923

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