This distribution is expected to occur on January 31, 2001 (the "Distribution Date") and will be accomplished by transferring the stock of the companies which comprise the NDC eCommerce business segment to Global Payments Inc. ("Global Payments") and then distributing all of the shares of common stock of Global Payments to NDC's stockholders. NDC stockholders will receive 0.8 share of Global Payments stock for each NDC share held as of the record date. After the distribution, Global Payments and NDC will be two separate public companies. Global Payments was incorporated on September 1, 2000 a wholly-owned subsidiary of NDC and will not have any operations, assets or liabilities until immediately prior to the distribution. These unaudited interim combined financial statements include the accounts of the subsidiaries of NDC that comprise its eCommerce business segment (collectively referred to as "the Company"). The Company is an integrated provider of high volume electronic transaction processing and value-added end- to-end information services and systems to merchants, multinational corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies. These services are marketed to customers within the merchant services and the funds transfer business through various sales channels. The Company's operations are provided in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 131 ("SFAS 131"), "Disclosure About Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information." Accordingly, the Company's chief operating decision making group currently operates as one reportable segment--electronic transaction processing--therefore the majority of the disclosures required by SFAS 131 do not apply to the Company. The Company's results of operations and its financial condition are not significantly reliant upon any single customer or foreign operations. Revenues from external customers from the Company's two service offerings are as follows (in thousands):
Second Quarter Ended Six Months Ended November 30, November 30, 2000 1999 2000 1999 ------- ------- -------- -------- Merchant services $77,752 $78,834 $159,828 $163,035 Funds transfer 4,879 5,340 9,994 10,967 --------------------------------------------------------- $82,631 $84,174 $169,822 $174,002 =========================================================
NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES: The financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the combined 6 financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's latest Registration Statement on Form 10 filed on December 28, 2000. In the opinion of management, the information furnished reflects all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for such interim periods. NOTE 3 - EARNINGS PER SHARE: Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing reported earnings available to common shareholders by weighted average shares outstanding during the period. Earnings available to common shareholders is the same as reported net income for all periods presented. Weighted average shares outstanding is computed by applying the distribution ratio of 0.8 of a share of the Company for each NDC share held to the historical NDC weighted average shares outstanding for the same periods presented. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing reported earnings available to common shareholders by weighted average shares outstanding during the period and the impact of securities that, if exercised, would have a dilutive effect on earnings per share. All options with an exercise price less than the average market share price for the period generally are assumed to have a dilutive effect on earnings per share. Diluted earnings per share is not presented in these financial statements, as there are no historical market share prices for the Company, as public trading will not commence until the distribution occurs. Accordingly, the dilutive effect of stock options cannot be determined. NOTE 4 - COMPREHENSIVE INCOME (LOSS): The components of comprehensive income for the six months ended November 30, 2000 and November 30, 1999 are as follows: (in thousands) 2000 1999 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net income $17,056 $19,227 Foreign exchange effect (469) (23) ----------- ----------- Total comprehensive income $16,587 $19,204 =========== ===========
NOTE 5 - TRANSACTIONS WITH NDC: There were no material intercompany purchase or sales transactions between NDC and the Company. The Company was charged with incremental corporate costs in the amount of $1.1 million and $1.0 million in second quarter ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively and $3.6 million and $2.1 million in six months ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively. These allocations were based on an estimate of the proportion of corporate expenses related to the Company, utilizing such factors as revenues, number of employees, number of transactions processed and other applicable factors. The Company was also charged corporate interest expense based on the anticipated corporate debt allocations of NDC to the Company at the Distribution Date. The Company utilized a rollback approach to allocate the anticipated portion of the NDC consolidated group's debt and interest expense for all historical periods presented. This treatment records the current proposed debt allocation percentage for all historical periods presented. The allocated portion of the consolidated group's debt is 7 presented as due to NDC on the accompanying combined balance sheets. Interest expense recorded by the Company related to this debt was $1.1 million in each of the second quarter periods ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, and $2.1 million in each of the six month periods ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, and is included in interest and other expense. NOTE 6 - SUBSEQUENT EVENT: Upon the recommendation of the compensation committee, the board of directors at its regularly scheduled meeting on December 19, 2000 approved non-qualified stock options to acquire 120,000 shares of NDC common stock for Paul Garcia, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Such stock options are subject to the normal five year vesting and ten year exercise periods. 8 MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS For an understanding of the significant factors that influenced the Company's results, the following discussion should be read in conjunction with the combined financial statements of the Company and related notes appearing elsewhere in this report. It is also suggested that this management's discussion and analysis be read in conjunction with the management's discussion and analysis and pro forma combined financial statements included in the Company's latest Registration Statement on Form 10 filed on December 28, 2000. General We are one of the largest independent electronic transaction processing service providers in the world. We provide a wide range of end-to-end electronic commerce solutions to merchants, corporations, financial institutions and government agencies. We market our products and services through a variety of distinct sales channels including a sizable, dedicated direct sales force, independent sales organizations, independent sales representatives, an internal telesales group, alliance bank relationships and financial institutions. We have a high percentage of recurring revenues and process over 1.6 billion transactions per year servicing more than 775,000 merchant locations. Components of Income Statement We derive our revenues from three primary sources: (i) charges based on volumes and fees for merchant services; (ii) charges based on transaction quantity; and (iii) equipment sales, leases and service fees. Revenues generated by these areas depend upon a number of factors, such as demand for and price of our services, the technological competitiveness of our product line, our reputation for providing timely and reliable service, competition within our industry, and general economic conditions. Cost of service consists primarily of the cost of network telecommunications capability, transaction processing systems, personnel to develop and maintain applications and operate computer networks and to provide customer support, and depreciation and occupancy costs associated with the facilities performing these functions. Sales, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries, wages and related expenses paid to sales, non-revenue producing customer support functions and administrative employees and management, commissions to independent contractors, advertising costs, other selling expenses, employee training costs and occupancy of leased space directly related to these functions. Other income and expense consists of minority interest in earnings expense, interest expense and other miscellaneous items of income and expense. Our earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, is defined as operating income plus depreciation and amortization. This statistic and its results as a percentage of revenue may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and is not presented as a substitute for net income or cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. However, we believe this statistic is a relevant measurement and provides a comparable cash earnings measure, excluding the impact of the amortization of acquired intangibles and potential timing differences associated with capital expenditures and the related depreciation charges. 9 Impact of Impending Acquisition On November 9, 2000, we entered into an asset purchase agreement with CIBC to purchase substantially all of the assets of their merchant acquiring business. The assets comprise the business of accepting, processing and settling credit and debit card transaction records for merchants. The revenues for the business are generated by the merchant locations, which are marketed through a combination of a direct sales force, referrals from CIBC's approximate 1,200 bank branch locations comprising CIBC's branch network and an independent sales organization. We believe the cash flows from operations of the acquisition on a stand- alone basis will be sufficient to meet the needs of our operations, except for short-term borrowing needs under the CIBC credit facility explained in greater detail below. There are no other material capital commitments expected with respect to this acquisition. The acquisition is expected to be consummated after the distribution is completed, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. We intend to operate the business in a manner consistent with CIBC's historical operations. The expectations in the section below labeled Forward- Looking Results of Operations, assumes the acquisition is consummated on February 15, 2001. 10 Results of Operations - ---------------------- Second Quarter Ended November 30, 2000 Compared to Second Quarter Ended November 30, 1999 The following table provides comparisons of our results of operations for the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively: Three Months Ended November 30, ------------------------------------------- 2000 1999 --------------------- --------------------- 2000 vs. % of % of 1999 Actual Revenue Actual Revenue Change ------------- ------- ------------- ------- -------- (in millions) (in millions) Revenue.................. $82.6 $84.2 (2)% Operating expenses: Cost of service......... 43.2 52 % 45.9 55 % (6)% Sales, general and administrative......... 23.4 28 % 23.0 27 % 2 % ----- --- ----- --- --- Operating income......... 16.0 19 % 15.3 18 % 5 % Other income (expense)... (2.3) (3)% (2.2) (3)% (4)% ----- --- ----- --- --- Earnings before income taxes................... $13.7 16 % $13.1 15 % 5 % ===== === ===== === === Depreciation and Amortization............ $ 4.9 6 % $ 5.5 7 % (10)% EBITDA................... $20.9 25 % $20.8 25 % 1 % Our revenue decrease of $1.6 million or 2% in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 was primarily due to business divestures. Revenue associated with the businesses divested in the first six months of fiscal 2001 was $0.9 million and $2.5 million in the quarter ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively. We expect this decline to continue for the remainder of the year primarily due to these divestures. Excluding this item, our normalized revenue would be $81.7 million in both second quarter periods ended November 30, 2000 and 1999. This revenue reflects strong volume growth in merchant acquiring card processing services offset by declines in other merchant services product offerings and funds transfer offerings compared to the prior year's comparable period. Cost of service decreased $2.7 million the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 from the prior year's second quarter. As a percentage of revenue, cost of service decreased to 52% in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 compared to 55% in the prior year's second quarter. These decreases are primarily due to the recent divestitures, which had higher cost of service ratios. Sales, general and administrative expenses increased $0.4 million or 2% in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 from the prior year's second quarter. As a percentage of revenue, these expenses increased to 28% for the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 compared to 27% in the prior year's second quarter. These increases were primarily due to approximately $1.0 million of costs associated with management and related corporate costs incurred in anticipation of becoming a separate public entity. 11 Operating income increased $0.7 million or 5% to $16.0 million in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 from $15.3 million in the prior year's second quarter. As a percentage of revenue, our operating income margin increased to 19% in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 from 18% in the prior year's second quarter. This improvement is due primarily to the factors described above. Assuming the additional management and related corporate costs incurred in anticipation of becoming a separate public entity were incurred in the prior year's second quarter, operating income would have increased $1.7 million or 12% for the second quarter ended November 30, 2000. Basic earnings per share increased $0.02 or 7% to $0.32 in the second quarter ended November 30, 2000 from $0.30 in the prior year's second quarter. This improvement is primarily due to the increase in operating income. The following information provides an analysis of basic earnings per share that we believe is a more meaningful illustration of the historical basic earnings per share for comparability purposes:
Three Months Ended November 30, 2000 November 30, 1999 -------------------------- -------------------------- Reported basic earnings per share $ 0.32 $ 0.30 Interest expense associated with a higher average cost of funds that will be incurred as a separate independent public company (1) (0.01) (0.02) Additional sales, general and administrative expenses that will be incurred as a separate independent public company (1) -- (0.01) Impact of losses from divested businesses and other, net -- 0.02 ------------------------------------------------------ Normalized basic earnings per share $ 0.31 $ 0.29 ------------------------------------------------------
(1) - Adjustment and pro forma methodology included in our latest Registration Statement on Form 10 filed on December 28, 2000 for the year ended May 31, 2000 and the three months ended August 31, 2000. 12 Six Months Ended November 30, 2000 Compared to Six Months Ended November 30, 1999 The following table provides comparisons of our results of operations for the six months ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively: Six Months Ended November 30, ------------------------------------------- 2000 1999 --------------------- --------------------- 2000 vs. % of % of 1999 Actual Revenue Actual Revenue Change ------------- ------- ------------- ------- -------- (in millions) (in millions) Revenue.................. $169.8 $174.0 (2)% Operating expenses: Cost of service......... 89.1 53 % 91.9 53 % (3)% Sales, general and administrative......... 48.2 28 % 46.3 27 % 4 % ----- --- ----- --- --- Operating income......... 32.5 19 % 35.8 20 % (9)% Other income (expense)... (4.8) (3)% (4.5) (3)% (6)% ------ --- ----- --- --- Earnings before income taxes................... $ 27.7 16 % $ 31.3 18 % (11)% ====== === ===== === === Depreciation and Amortization............ $ 9.9 6 % $ 11.1 6 % (10)% EBITDA................... $ 42.5 25 % $ 46.9 27 % (9)% Our revenue decrease of $4.2 million or 2% in the six months ended November 30, 2000 was primarily due to business divestures ($2.5 million) and a non-recurring product and service mix change ($2.9 million) in the six months ended November 30, 1999. Revenue associated with the businesses divested in the first six months of fiscal 2001 was $2.9 million and $5.4 million in the six month periods ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively. We expect this decline to continue for the remainder of the year primarily due to these divestures. Excluding these items, our normalized revenue would be $166.9 million and $165.7 million in the six month periods ended November 30, 2000 and 1999, respectively. This modest revenue increase reflects strong volume growth in merchant acquiring card processing services offset by declines in other merchant services product offerings and funds transfer offerings compared to the prior year's comparable period. Cost of service decreased $2.8 million the six months ended November 30, 2000 from the prior year's comparable period. As a percentage of revenue, cost of service was consistent at 53% in the six months ended November 30, 2000 and 1999. This cost decrease was primarily due to the recent divestitures, which had higher cost of service ratios. Sales, general and administrative expenses increased $1.9 million or 4% in the six months ended November 30, 2000 from the prior year's comparable period. As a percentage of revenue, these expenses increased to 28% for the six months ended November 30, 2000 compared to 27% in the prior year's comparable period. These increases were primarily due to approximately $2.0 million of costs associated with management and related corporate costs incurred in anticipation of becoming a separate public entity. 13 Operating income decreased $3.3 million or 9% to $32.5 million in the six months ended November 30, 2000 from $35.8 million in the prior year's comparable period. As a percentage of revenue, our operating income margin decreased to 19% in the six months ended November 30, 2000 from 20% in the prior year's comparable period. These decreases are due primarily to the factors described above. Basic earnings per share decreased $0.06 or 8% to $0.65 for the six month period ended November 30, 2000 from $0.71 in the prior year's second quarter. This decrease is primarily due to the change in operating income. The following information provides an analysis of basic earnings per share that we believe is a more meaningful illustration of the historical basic earnings per share for comparability purposes:
Six Months Ended November 30, 2000 November 30, 1999 ------------------ --------------------- Reported basic earnings per share $ 0.65 $ 0.71 Interest expense associated with a higher average cost of funds that will be incurred as a separate independent public company (1) (0.02) (0.01) Additional sales, general and administrative expenses that will be incurred as a separate independent public company (1) (0.01) (0.04) Losses from divested businesses and other, net -- (0.03) ------------------------------------------------- Normalized basic earnings per share $ 0.62 $ 0.63 -------------------------------------------------
(1) - Adjustment and pro forma methodology included in the our latest Registration Statement on Form 10 filed on December 28, 2000 for the year ended May 31, 2000 and the three months ended August 31, 2000. 14 Forward-Looking Results of Operations Revenue In the year ended May 31, 2000, we reported revenue of $340 million. This revenue included $12.8 million associated with businesses divested in the first six months of fiscal 2001 and other non-recurring items. Excluding these revenues from the reported fiscal 2000 amounts, our normalized revenue would have been $327 million. Pro forma revenue adjustments associated with the Global Payments spin-off were not required with respect to fiscal 2000 amounts reported. On the normalized revenue, we anticipate essentially the same revenue performance for the year ended May 31, 2001, which is consistent with our actual results to date, due to continued strong volume growth in merchant acquiring card processing services offset by declines in certain other merchant services product offerings and funds transfer offerings. Subject to the timing of the CIBC acquisition discussed above, normalized revenue for the year ended May 31, 2001 may increase to $340 to $345 million. Accordingly, we anticipate revenue growth of approximately 5% for the year ended May 31, 2001 over the normalized revenue of $327 million for 2000. For fiscal 2002, provided the CIBC acquisition is completed according to the timeline outlined herein, we expect low- to mid- double digit percentage revenue growth compared to our fiscal 2001 expectation of $340 to 345 million. The Company is continuing to evaluate its strategic alternatives for its secondary businesses; accordingly, these revenue expectations do not consider the impact of potential future divestitures. Earnings Per Share In the year ended May 31, 2000, we reported basic earnings per share of $1.24. Any adjustments resulting from the losses on business divestitures were offset by the increase from other non-recurring items in fiscal 2000, as noted above, and have no impact on basic earnings per share. In the year ended May 31, 2000, our basic earnings per share excludes the impact of the pro forma adjustments associated with management and related corporate costs incurred in anticipation of becoming a separate public entity and additional interest expense as a result of the new line of credit totaling $0.10 per basic share. If these items were included in the reported fiscal 2000 amounts, our normalized earnings per basic share would have been $1.14. We anticipate reporting basic earnings per share for the year ended May 31, 2001 of $1.01 to $1.06. In fiscal 2002, we anticipate a modest increase in basic earnings per share compared to the fiscal 2001 expectation of $1.01 to $1.06. However, the timing of the integration of the CIBC acquisition and base business consolidation efforts underway may have a favorable impact upon our fiscal 2002 basic earnings per share expectation, excluding the cost impact of integration and consolidation efforts. Liquidity and Capital Resources - ------------------------------- Cash flow generated from operations provides us with a significant source of liquidity to meet our needs. At November 30, 2000, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $5.0 million. Net cash provided by operating activities decreased 6% to $34.5 million for the six months ended November 30, 2000 from $36.9 million for the prior year's comparable period driven primarily by the decrease in earnings. Net cash used in investing activities was $3.7 million for the six months ended November 30, 2000 compared to $3.0 million in the prior year's comparable period primarily due to capital expenditure investments in infrastructure. Net cash used in financing activities increased 4% to $28.6 million for the six months ended November 30, 2000 from $27.4 million in the prior year's comparable period. 15 We believe that our current level of cash and borrowing capacity under our committed line of credit described below, along with future cash flows from operations, are sufficient to meet the needs of our existing operations and planned requirements for the foreseeable future. We currently do not have any material capital commitments (other than commitments under capital and operating leases discussed in Note 14 of our audited combined financial statements included in the Form 10) or planned expansions. Over the next two to three years, we may develop our own hardware and software facilities for the transaction processing, cash management, file transfer and related communications functions in an effort to improve productivity and reduce cost of services. If undertaken, this development would increase our capital expenditures above historical levels over the next two to three years. In addition, if we close the acquisition of CIBC's merchant acquiring business, we will begin the planning and development process which will allow us to assume the processing services CIBC will initially provide to the Canadian merchants under a transition arrangement. This development effort will also increase our capital expenditures above historical levels over the next two years. We regularly evaluate cash requirements for current operations, commitments, development activities and acquisitions. We may elect to raise additional funds for these purposes, either through the issuance of debt or equity or otherwise, as appropriate. Credit Facilities Our short-term and long-term liquidity needs depend upon our level of net income, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses. We have a commitment for a $110 million revolving line of credit. It will fund the cash due to NDC to reflect our share of NDC's pre-distribution debt used to establish our initial capitalization. This line of credit will also be used to meet our working capital and acquisition needs after the distribution. This line has a variable interest rate based on market rates and customary origination-related fees and expenses. The credit agreement will contain certain financial and non- financial covenants customary for financings of this nature. The facility will have a three year term. With our agreement to acquire certain assets of the CIBC merchant acquiring business, we have entered into related agreements to operate the business, including a credit facility. Canadian merchant acquiring businesses typically advance payment to merchants for credit card transactions before receiving the interchange reimbursement from the card issuing banks. This business model differs sharply from the U.S. where merchant funding only occurs after we receive the funds from the card issuing banks. CIBC has agreed to provide us with a revolving credit facility which will be available to us to fund the approximate two day interval between our payment of Canadian merchants and our receipt of the interchange fee. The credit facility will provide us with a line of credit of up to C$140 million with an additional overdraft facility available to cover larger advances during periods of peak usage of credit and debit cards, and will carry an interest rate based on Canadian Dollar LIBOR (C$LIBOR). It contains customary covenants and events of default. The line of credit will be secured by a first priority security interest in our accounts receivable from VISA Canada/International, and will be guaranteed by us and our subsidiaries. This guarantee will be subordinated to our primary credit facility discussed above. The CIBC credit facility will have an initial term of 364 days from the date of the closing of the acquisition and it is renewable annually at CIBC's option. 16 Forward-Looking Information When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, in documents incorporated herein and elsewhere by management of Global Payments Inc.
