NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and its attachments include several non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenues; non-GAAP Services 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 gross margin as a percentage of non-GAAP net revenues; non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share, and free cash flow. This press release also includes certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, specifically projected Non-GAAP net revenues and Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the second fiscal quarter and full fiscal year 2014. The corresponding reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, to the extent available without unreasonable effort, are included in this press release.

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. 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.

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), 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.

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 we have determined is not reflective of ongoing operating results. 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:

  • Litigation loss contingency expense.
  • Certain costs incurred in connection with senior executive management changes, such as separation payments, legal fees and recruiter fees.
  • Certain expenses, such as professional services and certain personnel costs, incurred on initiatives to transform, streamline and centralize our global operations.
  • Gain or loss on financial transactions, such as the accelerated amortization of capitalized debt issuance costs due to the early repayment of debt.

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. Under GAAP our Income tax provision (benefit) as a percentage of Income (loss) before income taxes was 30.1% for fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2014, (790.2)% for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2013 and 17.4% for the fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2013. For non-GAAP purposes, we used rates of 14.5% for fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2014 and 14% for the fiscal quarters ended October 31, 2013 and January 31, 2013, reflecting our estimate of cash tax payments as a percentage of Income (loss) before income taxes for the corresponding periods.

Note G: Non-GAAP diluted shares. During the three months ended January 31, 2014 and October 31, 2013, the diluted non-GAAP weighted average shares include additional shares that are dilutive, because we have a non-GAAP net income and a GAAP basis net loss.

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.
