"Solid performance in our incentives and international segments, coupled with a slightly lower than forecast EMV impact on the U.S. retail segment, resulted in profitability in the second quarter well above our guidance range," commented CEO and president Talbott Roche. "The EMV impact caused U.S. retail adjusted operating revenues to decline 10% compared to last year's second quarter. On the other hand, international retail recorded adjusted operating revenues growth of 17% during the second quarter, driven by strong growth in Europe. In our incentives segment, adjusted operating revenues grew 70%, driven by the acquisitions of Achievers in the second half of 2015 and Giftcards.com early in the first quarter of 2016. We continue to believe that the negative impact of EMV on US Retail is largely a 2016 event."

The company's second quarter adjusted operating revenues, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income continued to be impacted negatively from the delay in EMV(1) implementation by a number of the Company's U.S. grocery distribution partners and the related measures those partners have taken to limit credit card purchases of prepaid products. For the second quarter of 2016, the estimated impact related to EMV was $14 million on adjusted operating revenues and $12 million on adjusted EBITDA.

CFO Jerry Ulrich added, "Adjusted EBITDA declined 14% for total Blackhawk and declined 18% for the U.S. retail segment during the second quarter of 2016 reflecting the full quarter impact of EMV.  Adjusted EBITDA growth in the international and incentives segments was 278% and 79%, respectively, which was offset by the decline in the U.S. retail segment.  Unallocated expenses grew 12% during the second quarter."

GAAP financial results for the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015

  • Operating revenues totaled $391.2 million, an increase of 5% from $372.2 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  This increase was due to a 2% increase in commissions and fees driven primarily by higher international sales volume; a 29% increase in program and other fees due to higher incentive open loop gift card sales and the addition of Achievers and Giftcards.com; a 16% increase in product sales primarily due to the addition of Achievers and higher telecom handset sales, partially offset by a decline at Cardpool; and a decrease of 26% in marketing revenues due to lower international promotional revenues.

  • Net loss totaled $11.3 million compared to net income of $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  The decrease was driven primarily by lower sales of U.S. retail open loop gift cards due to EMV restrictions, higher non-cash acquisition-related expenses, higher non-cash stock compensation expense and increased interest expense. 

  • Net loss per diluted share was $0.20 compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.05 for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  Diluted shares outstanding increased 0.4% to 56.1 million.

Non-GAAP financial results for the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015 (see Table 2 for Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures)

  • Adjusted operating revenues totaled $183.7 million, an increase of 10% from $167.2 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  The increase was driven primarily by higher revenue from the incentives segment including the acquisitions of Achievers and Giftcards.com, offset by lower revenues in U.S. retail due to EMV-related sales restrictions on U.S. retail open loop gift card sales.

  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $26.4 million, a decrease of 14% from $30.6 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  Lower open loop gift card sales offset growth in the international retail and incentives segments.

  • Adjusted net income totaled $21.0 million, a decrease of 14% from $24.3 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  Excluding the impact of the reduction in income taxes payable, adjusted net income was $7.2 million, a decrease of 39% from $11.8 million for the quarter ended June 20, 2015 reflecting the lower Adjusted EBITDA and higher interest expense.

  • Adjusted diluted EPS was $0.37, a decrease of 14% from $0.43 for the quarter ended June 20, 2015.  Excluding the impact of the reduction in income taxes payable, adjusted diluted EPS was $0.13.

(1) Reference to "EMV impact" refers to our estimates of the impact on our revenues and earnings of measures taken by some retail distribution partners related to their delay in implementing the new secure payment card requirements from Europay, Mastercard and Visa ("EMV" mandate).   The failure to implement EMV in their point-of-sale systems by October 2015 transferred the liability for fraudulent credit card payments from card issuers to the retailers.   In order to limit chargebacks related to fraudulent credit cards used to purchase certain prepaid products in their stores, some of our distribution partners began taking measures in late January 2016 to limit or control the sale of high value prepaid cards and in particular, open loop products.  While the type of restrictive measures have varied by distribution partner, the following types of restrictions have been implemented:  establishment of credit limits on credit card purchases of gift cards, a move to cash or debit only for purchases of certain gift cards and removal of high denomination open loop products.

Future Change in Non-GAAP Measures of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share

Beginning the third quarter of 2016, in response to the SEC's Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations published on May 17, 2016 pertaining to non-GAAP measures, the Company will revise its presentation of two non-GAAP measures, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share.  The reduction in income taxes payable previously included in the determination of Adjusted Net Income will no longer be included, but will be provided separately including the per-share amount of the reductions.  Table 2 of this earnings release displays the current presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share.  Table 3 of this earnings release displays the revised presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share.

A revised presentation of Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share for prior periods from fiscal 2013 forward is available on the Company's investor relations website at ir.blackhawknetwork.com.

2016 Guidance

Guidance for fiscal 2016 provided in the table below reflects updated assumptions and estimates regarding each of the Company's various operating businesses and shared services resources as compared to the guidance provided on April 26, 2016.  The updated 2016 full year guidance includes a revised estimate of the negative impact related to certain of our distribution partners' EMV non-compliance as described above vs. 2015 of $47 million on Adjusted Operating Revenues and $40 million on Adjusted EBITDA.

Further details regarding the Company's guidance including a breakdown of guidance for the third fiscal quarter will be provided on the earnings call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Blackhawk regards the non-GAAP financial measures provided in this press release as useful measures of the operational and financial performance of its business.  Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted earnings per share measures are prepared and presented to eliminate the effect of items from EBITDA, Net income and Diluted earnings per share that the Company does not consider indicative of its core operating performance within the period presented. Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted earnings per share are also adjusted to include certain significant tax benefits that the Company considers important for understanding its overall operating results.  Beginning the third quarter of 2016, the Company will no longer include the reduction in income taxes payable in its Adjusted Net Income or Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share calculations.  Adjusted operating revenues are prepared and presented to offset the distribution commissions paid and other compensation to distribution partners and business clients. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Adjusted operating revenues. Adjusted operating revenues, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other organizations because other organizations may not calculate these measures in the same manner as Blackhawk. Investors are encouraged to evaluate our adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate.

The Company believes Adjusted operating revenues, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted diluted earnings per share are useful to evaluate the Company's operating performance for the following reasons:

  • adjusting operating revenues for distribution commissions paid and other compensation to retail distribution partners and business clients is useful to understanding the Company's operating margin;

  • adjusting operating revenues for marketing revenue, which has offsetting marketing expense, is useful for understanding the Company's operating margin;

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are widely used by investors and securities analysts to measure a company's operating performance without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company and from period to period depending upon their financing, accounting and tax methods, the book value of their assets, their capital structures and the method by which their assets were acquired;

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin provides a measure of operating efficiency based on Adjusted operating revenues and without regard to items that can vary substantially from company to company and from period to period depending upon their financing, accounting and tax methods, the book value of their assets, their capital structures and the method by which their assets were acquired;

  • in a business combination, a company records an adjustment to reduce the carrying values of deferred revenue and deferred expenses to their fair values and reduces the company's revenues and expenses from what it would have recorded otherwise, and as such the Company does not believe is indicative of its core operating performance;

  • non-cash equity grants made to employees and distribution partners at a certain price and point in time do not necessarily reflect how the Company's business is performing at any particular time and the related expenses are not key measures of the Company's core operating performance;

  • the net gain on the transaction to transition our program-managed GPR business to another program manager is not reflective of our core operating performance;

  • intangible asset amortization expenses can vary substantially from company to company and from period to period depending upon the applicable financing and accounting methods, the fair value and average expected life of the acquired intangible assets, the capital structure and the method by which the intangible assets were acquired and, as such, the Company does not believe that these adjustments are reflective of its core operating performance; 

  • non-cash fair value adjustments to contingent business acquisition liability do not directly reflect how the Company is performing at any particular time and the related expense adjustment amounts are not key measures of the Company's core operating performance; 

  • reduction in income taxes payable from the step up in tax basis of our assets resulting from the Section 336(e) election due to our Spin-Off and the Safeway Merger and reduction in income taxes payable from amortization of goodwill and other intangibles or utilization of net operating loss carryforwards from business acquisitions represent significant tax savings that are useful for understanding the Company's overall operating results;

  • reduction in income taxes payable resulting from the tax deductibility of stock-based compensation is useful for understanding the Company's overall operating results. The Company generally realizes these tax deductions when restricted stock vest, an option is exercised, and, in the case of warrants, after the warrant is exercised but amortized over remaining service period, and such timing differs from the GAAP treatment of expense recognition; and

  • Adjusted free cash flow - the Company receives funds from consumers or business clients for prepaid products that the Company issues or holds on their behalf prior to the issuance of prepaid products. The Company views this cash flow as temporary and not indicative of the cash flows generated by its operating activity, and therefore excludes it from calculations of Adjusted free cash flow. Adjusted free cash flow provides information regarding the cash that the Company generates without the fluctuations resulting from the timing of cash inflows and outflows from these settlement activities, which is useful to understanding the Company's business and its ability to fund capital expenditures and repay amounts borrowed under its term loan. The Company also may use Adjusted free cash flow for, among other things, making investment decisions and managing its capital structure.
