USA Technologies, Inc. (OTC:USAT) (“USAT” or the “Company”), a cashless payments and software services company that provides end-to-end technology solutions for the self-service retail market, today reported results for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018. Additionally, based upon the adjustments identified by an internal investigation that the Company announced in September 2018, as well as further adjustments subsequently identified by management during the audit process, the Company has restated results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, restated selected financial data for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2015 and 2016, and restated results for the quarterly periods ended September 30, 2016 and 2017, December 31, 2016 and 2017, and March 31, 2017 and 2018. The Company has also reported results for the fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2018, December 31, 2018, and March 31, 2019. As previously disclosed, on a net basis, the proposed aggregate reduction to previously reported revenues relating to the internal investigation did not exceed $5.5 million.
“We are pleased to have completed our audit and restatements in order to regain compliance with our periodic reporting requirements,” said Stephen P. Herbert, USA Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer. “Over the past year, we have improved procedures and controls while continuing to grow our customer base and connection count. We believe that our market leading solutions and the value-added benefits they bring to our customers position us well to capitalize on positive industry trends, including the ongoing shift and increasing demand for electronic payment transactions. ”
Fiscal 2019 Financial Highlights:
“We will continue to improve our control environment over the coming months,” said Glen Goold, USA Technologies’ Interim Chief Financial Officer. “Our fiscal year 2018 and 2019 results demonstrate increased penetration of our existing customers, while expanding our footprint with new customers. In addition, our financial results demonstrate a recurring revenue stream, which increased to 86% of total revenue in fiscal 2019 from 73% in fiscal 2018.”
Fiscal Year 2020 Outlook:
For full fiscal year 2020, the Company expects revenue to be between $165 million to $175 million and Adjusted EBITDA to be between $10 million and $11 million. USAT expects to add 170,000 to 190,000 net new connections to its service.
USA Technologies has not reconciled the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP net income (loss) due to the uncertainty and potential variability of the provision for (benefit from) income taxes, one-time restatement related cost, and integration and acquisition costs, each of which is a reconciling item between Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income (loss). Because these items are uncertain, depend on various factors, cannot be reasonably predicted, and could have a significant impact on the calculation of GAAP net income (loss), USA Technologies has not provided guidance for GAAP net income (loss) or a reconciliation of the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP net income (loss). Accordingly, a GAAP net income (loss) outlook and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP net income (loss) is not available without unreasonable effort. Information regarding the reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures can be found in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), including the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, and the Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended September 30, 2018, December 31, 2018, and March 31,2019 (collectively, “the Company’s SEC filings”).

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). Reconciliations between non-GAAP financial measures and the most comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the Company’s SEC filings.
The following non-GAAP financial measures are discussed herein: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The presentation of these additional financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including the net income or net loss of USAT or net cash used in operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with USAT's net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP and are not a substitute for or a measure of the Company’s profitability or net earnings. These non-GAAP financial measures are not required by or defined under GAAP and may be materially different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures can be found in the Company’s SEC filings.
As used herein, non-GAAP net income (loss) represents GAAP net income (loss) excluding costs or benefits relating to any non-cash portions of the Company’s income tax benefit (provision), amortization expense related to our acquisition-related intangibles, non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of businesses , non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the Audit Committee investigation and financial statement restatement activities, and class-action litigation expenses. Management believes that non-GAAP net income (loss) is an important measure of USAT’s business. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required by or defined under GAAP. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures serve as a useful metric for our management and investors because they enable a better understanding of the long-term performance of our core business and facilitate comparisons of our operating results over multiple periods, and when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and our reconciliations, enhance investors’ overall understanding of our current and future financial performance. Additionally, the Company utilizes non-GAAP net income (loss) as a metric in its executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.
As used herein, Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of businesses, non-recurring fees and charges that were incurred in connection with the Audit Committee investigation and financial statement restatement activities, class action litigation expenses, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, and stock-based compensation expense. We have excluded the non-cash expense, stock-based compensation, as it does not reflect the cash-based operations of the Company. We have excluded the non-recurring costs and expenses incurred in connection with business acquisitions in order to allow more accurate comparison of the financial results to historical operations. We have excluded the professional fees incurred in connection with the class action litigation as well as the non-recurring costs and expenses related to the Audit Committee investigation and financial statement restatement activities because we believe that they represent charges that are not related to our operations. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it is useful to investors as a measure of comparative operating performance. Additionally, the Company utilizes Adjusted EBITDA as a metric in its executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.
