JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Axcess Corp (OTC Bulletin Board: GAXC; the "Company"), an independent provider of self-service kiosk solutions, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The Company also provided an outlook for the third quarter of 2011.

"We achieved record revenue for the second consecutive quarter and we returned to profitability, as evidenced by the strongest ATM quarter in the Company's history," commented Michael I. Connolly, Co-Chief Executive Officer. "We produced positive operating and net income in the quarter, reversing the operating and net losses of the first quarter 2011 and demonstrating that our business is getting back on the right track. Over the last several months we developed a sound growth plan, established a better focus on who we are as a Company and put forth clear metrics by which to measure our progress that will create long-term, sustainable value for shareholders."

Key financial and operational statistics in the second quarter of 2011 include:

ATM Business Line

  • Second quarter 2011 surcharge transactions increased by 1.3% over surcharge transactions for the first quarter of 2011 and by 3.3% over surcharge transactions for the second quarter of 2010.
  • Second quarter 2011 ATM services revenue increased by 5.9% over ATM services revenue for the first quarter of 2011 and by 15.6% over ATM services revenue for the second quarter of 2010.
  • Second quarter 2011 ATM services adjusted EBITDA was $1.7 million, compared to $1.5 million for the first quarter of 2011 and $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2010.

  • Second quarter 2011 DVD services gross profit was $342,000 compared to $523,000 in the first quarter of 2011 and compared to ($46,000) for the second quarter of 2010.

Lock Ireland, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors and Co-Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The strategic initiatives we put in place are gaining traction. The transition of 115 DVD kiosks from our grocery store customer to the higher volume locations at The Exchange puts our DVD business on a more stable growth trajectory going forward. To date, we have replaced more than 20% of the older machines at existing The Exchange locations with our faster, higher-capacity kiosks without issues and in the first 60 days we are experiencing a significant volume increase."

Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

The Company reported record consolidated revenues of $8.3 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, up 4.3% from $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2011 and up 50.6% compared to $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2010. Both sequential and year over years increases were due as a combination of both strong ATM growth and DVD growth to $2.0 million of DVD rental revenue for the second quarter of 2011 comparable to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2011 and $60,000 in the year-ago period.

Gross profit was $3.1 million, or 36.9% gross margin, for the second quarter compared to $2.5 million, or 45.6% gross margin, for the second quarter of 2010 and compared sequentially to gross profit of $3.1 million, or 38.7% gross margin, in the first quarter of 2011.

Operating income was $298,000 for the second quarter of 2011 compared to operating income of $332,000 for the second quarter of 2010 and compared to an operating loss of $260,000 for the first quarter of 2011.

During the second quarter of 2011, the Company recorded net interest expense of $179,000, compared to net interest expense of $110,000 for the same period of 2010. The increase was mainly due to an increase in debt.

EBITDA (earnings before net interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the second quarter of 2011 was $1.2 million, compared to $751,000 for the second quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA before stock compensation expenses, restructuring charges, gain on sale of assets and loss on early extinguishment of debt) was $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2011 compared to $908,000 for the second quarter of 2010. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA represent non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures. A table reconciling these measures to the appropriate GAAP measures is included in this release.

Net income for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $183,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share (based on 22.6 million basic and 23.2 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively), compared to net income of $121,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share (based on 21.9 million basic and 23.8 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively), for the same period of 2010 and compared to a net loss of $544,000, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share (based on 22.3 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding) in the first quarter of 2011.

"The outlook is based on the ongoing transition of 115 DVD kiosks from our grocery customer.

"This transition is expected to help us grow both revenue and EBITDA, and while this initiative is underway, we expect to remain profitable."

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted within the United States of America ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Management believes that the presentation of these measures and the identification of unusual, non-recurring, or non-cash items enhance an investor's understanding of the underlying trends in the Company's business and provide for better comparability between periods in different years.  However, non-GAAP net income should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP as an indicator of our operating performance because the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on results of operations. Therefore, management uses - and investors should use - non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our reported GAAP results.

EBITDA excludes interest expense, tax benefit, depreciation expenses and amortization expenses.   Adjusted EBITDA excludes severance and restructuring charges, acquisition costs and other expense.  Adjusted Net Income excludes severance and restructuring charges, acquisition costs and other expense.  Since Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income exclude certain non-recurring or non-cash items, these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures employed by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
