(1) Fundamental net income and earnings per share is GAAP net income and earnings per share excluding the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, net of deferred taxes, and stock-based compensation charges. In addition, the calculation of fundamental net income and earnings per share for 2Q 2011 also excludes transaction-related costs and an unrealized foreign exchange gain (related to foreign exchange contracts entered into in order to hedge the fluctuations in the ZAR/ US dollar related to the anticipated flow of funds from South Africa to the United States to fund a portion of the KSNET ("KSNET") purchase price).




The following factors had an influence on the comparability of our 2Q 2011 and 2Q 2010 results:

  • SASSA price and volume reductions: The Company's new contract with SASSA has reduced its revenue and operating income as a result of the previously announced price and volume reductions;
  • Favorable impact from the weakness of the US dollar: The US dollar depreciated by 8% compared to the ZAR during the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to fiscal 2010 which has had a positive impact on the Company reported results;
  • Increased revenue from KSNET at lower operating margins, before acquired intangible asset amortization, than the Company's legacy business: The Company's KSNET acquisition in October 2010 positively impacted its revenue during the second quarter of fiscal 2011, however, because KSNET has an operating margin, before acquired intangible asset amortization, that is lower than the Company's legacy businesses, it negatively impacted its operating margin. The inclusion of KSNET in the Company's results has also contributed to the increase in selling, general and administration and depreciation and amortization expenses;
  • Increased transaction volumes at EasyPay: The Company's reported results were favorably impacted by increased transaction volumes at EasyPay resulting from growth in value-added services;
  • Increased revenue from MediKredit and FIRHST at lower operating margins than other SA transaction-based activity business: The Company's MediKredit and FIHRST acquisitions positively impacted its revenue during the second quarter of fiscal 2011, however, because MediKredit generated a modest operating loss and FIHRST has operating margin that is lower than the Company's other transaction-based activity businesses, they negatively impacted its operating margin. The inclusion of these businesses in the Company's results has also contributed to the increase in selling, general and administration expense;
  • Increased user adoption in Iraq: The Company's reported results were positively impacted by increased transaction revenues at NUETS from the adoption of its UEPS technology in Iraq;
  • Lower revenues and margins from hardware, software and related technology sales segment: The Company's hardware, software and related technology sales segment was adversely impacted by lower revenues at Net1 UTA, offset by ad hoc hardware sales;
  • Intangible asset amortization related to acquisitions: The Company's reported results were adversely impacted by additional intangible asset amortization of approximately $2.0 million related to the acquisitions of KSNET in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, as well as MediKredit and FIHRST during the third quarter of fiscal 2010;
  • Lower interest income and increased interest expense resulting from KSNET acquisition: The Company's reported results were adversely impacted by lower interest income due to the payment of a portion of the KSNET purchase price in cash and increased interest expense due to the payment of a portion of the KSNET purchase price utilizing long-term debt and facility fees of approximately $1.7 million; and
  • Non-recurring items included in selling, general and administration expense: During the second quarter of fiscal 2011, we recognized an unrealized foreign exchange gain of $2.7 million and incurred transaction-related expenses of $1.8 million, primarily for the acquisition of KSNET.

Comments and Outlook

"The second quarter of fiscal 2011 was a transformational quarter for us with the closing of our KSNET acquisition, which diversifies our revenue, earnings and product portfolio, as well as reduces Net1's dependency on any one single economy, currency or political jurisdiction. Our revenue and profitability in 2Q 2011 continued to be negatively impacted by the previously announced reduction in the economics of our contract with SASSA, but offset by the inclusion of KSNET for two months of the quarter and sustained growth at EasyPay," said Dr. Serge Belamant, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Net1. "In January 2011 we extended our contract with SASSA for a period of six months to September 30, 2011, under the same terms and conditions of the existing contract. We expect SASSA to commence a new tender process for the distribution of social grants in South Africa in the near future, and remain well positioned to capitalize on our market leading solution, distribution and position. Separately, in 2Q 2011 KSNET's performance was in-line with management's expectations while Net1 made demonstrable progress in the deployment of our newer Virtual Card and EasyPay Kiosk initiatives," he concluded.

"We remain comfortable with our Fundamental EPS guidance of at least $1.50 on a constant currency basis for fiscal 2011. We continue to expect KSNET to be accretive to Fundamental EPS for fiscal 2011, but it is too soon to provide guidance on such level of accretion," said Herman Kotze, Chief Financial Officer of Net1.

Results of Operations

Net1's frequently asked questions and operating metrics will be updated and posted on the Company's website (www.net1.com).

   SA transaction-based activities

SA transaction-based activities revenue was $46.6 million, up 3% compared with 2Q 2010 in USD and 5% lower on a constant currency basis. In ZAR, the decrease in revenue was primarily due to the new SASSA contract at lower economics, which was partially offset by increased transaction volumes at EasyPay and the inclusion of MediKredit and FIHRST. Operating income margin of the Company's SA transaction-based activities decreased to 40% from 59% a year ago. The decrease was primarily due to the lower revenues generated under the SASSA contract, additional intangible asset amortization related to the acquisition of MediKredit and FIHRST and lower margins at MediKredit and FIHRST compared with the Company's legacy SA transaction-based activities. Excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, 2Q 2011 segment operating margin was 43% compared with 61% during 2Q 2010.

   International transaction-based activities

The Company's new International transaction-based activities segment includes the operations of KSNET, Net1 Virtual Card and NUETS' operations in Iraq. International transaction-based activities revenue was $17 million and segment operating margin was 2%. Excluding the amortization of intangibles, segment operating margin was 14%. KSNET is the largest contributor to the segment and has been included in the Company's results from November 1, 2010.

   Smart card accounts

Smart card account revenue was $8.4 million, up 4% compared with 2Q 2010 in USD and 4% lower on a constant currency basis. Operating margin for the segment remained consistent at 45%.

   Financial services

Financial services revenue was $1.6 million, up 89% compared with 2Q 2010 in USD and 74% higher on a constant currency basis, principally due to an increase in lending activities. Operating margin for this segment increased to 76% from 64% in 2Q 2010 largely as a result of the increased lending activities.

   Hardware, software and related technology sales

Hardware, software and related technology sales revenue was $15.4 million, down 21% compared with 2Q 2010 in USD and 27% lower on a constant currency basis. The decrease in revenue and operating income for 2Q 2011 was primarily due lower revenues generated by Net1 UTA, partially offset by ad hoc hardware sales. Excluding amortization of all intangibles and the impairment of goodwill, segment operating margin was 14% compared to 22% during 2Q 2010.

   Cash flow and liquidity

At December 31, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $71 million, down from $154 million at June 30, 2010. For 2Q 2011, the Company utilized net cash of $8.1 million for operating activities, compared to generating operating cash flow of $13.8 million in 2Q 2010. The decrease in operating cash flow resulted mainly from the SASSA price and volume reductions which were effective July 1, 2010 and provisional tax and Secondary Taxation on Companies payments of $31 million in 2Q 2011, compared to provisional tax payments in 2Q 2010 of $16 million. Capital expenditures for 2Q 2011 and 2010 were $4.0 million and $0.7 million, respectively. On October 29, 2010, the Company paid approximately $240 million to acquire KSNET, which was funded from $124 million of the Company's cash reserves and from $116 million in long-term borrowings. During 2Q 2011, the Company did not repurchase any shares under its $100 million authorization.  

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

US securities laws require that when the Company publishes any non-GAAP measures, it discloses the reason for using the non-GAAP measure and provides 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

The Company's GAAP net income and earnings per share for 2Q 2011 and 2Q 2010 include amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation. In addition, GAAP net income and earnings per share for 2Q 2011 includes transaction-related costs and an unrealized foreign exchange gain described above. The Company excludes all of the above-mentioned amounts when calculating fundamental net income and earnings per share, because management believes that these adjustments enhance its own evaluation, as well as an investor's understanding, of the Company's financial performance. Attachment B presents the reconciliation between GAAP and fundamental net income and earnings per share.

   Headline earnings per share ("HEPS")

The inclusion of HEPS in this press release is a requirement of the Company's 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 loss (profit) on sale of property, plant and equipment, net of related tax effects. Attachment C presents the reconciliation between the Company's net income used to calculate earnings per share basic and diluted and HEPS basic and diluted.
