(OTCQB: CLPI), a global mobile payments technology and processing company, today released the company’s 2014 Annual Report for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014, including for the first time the consolidation of the company’s Indian subsidiary Money-On-Mobile which had previously been reported as an investment.
"Our company has continued to grow and we have strong opportunities ahead as we expand both domestically and in India through Money-On-Mobile," said Harold Montgomery, Calpian founder and CEO.
Annual 2014 and Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Summary
|Year Ended March 31||
Three Months Ended March 31
|In millions, except percentages and per share amounts||2014||2013||2014||2013|
|Income from Operations|
|Comprehensive Net Income|
|Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS)|
Revenues – Consolidated revenues were $54.9 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Revenues included only the fourth quarter of Money-On-Mobile which contributed $29.7 million. Revenues also included a full year of revenue from Calpian Commerce which was acquired in March 2013 and contributed $21.4 million of the total.
Revenue In India – Money-On-Mobile revenues were 8.97 billion Indian rupees for the full year ending March 31, 2014. However, as Calpian only achieved majority ownership in the fiscal fourth quarter, only the fourth quarter’s revenues were consolidated in Calpian’s financial results. (Note: the Indian Rupee to U.S. Dollar exchange rate on March 31, 2014 was USD$1: INR 61.2).
Domestic Revenue in the U.S. – Domestic revenues were $25.5 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Revenues included a full year of revenue from Calpian Commerce which was acquired in March of 2013 and contributed $21.4 million of the total.
Income from Operations – Income from operations was a loss of $5.0 million for the year ending March 31, 2014 which generally reflects the Company’s objectives to increase revenues as statement above, raise capital and build our businesses. The losses include a number of one-time costs further described below. The loss for the year ending March 31, 2014 included a full year of results from Calpian Commerce which was acquired in March of 2013, and contributed a $446,000 operating profit to the total. The 2014 loss also included one quarter of results from Money-On-Mobile, which added $839,000 in operating losses to the total.
Income from Operations in the U.S. – Domestic Income from operations for 2014 was a loss of $4.8 million to which Calpian Commerce contributed an operating profit of $446,000.
Income from Operations in India – Money-On-Mobile’s loss from operations was $839,000 or 51.3 million Indian rupees for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 included in the consolidated results of Calpian for the first time.
Non-GAAP Income from Operations – Non-GAAP Income from operations was a gain of $851,000 for the year ending March 31, 2014. In management’s opinion, the prior fiscal year is not comparable on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP Income from operations for the full fiscal year of 2014 includes an adjustment of $2.6 million for one-time costs associated with fundraising (including commissions), a $509,000 adjustment for one-time legal and settlement costs, and a one-time $403,000 charge for office consolidation and restructuring at Calpian Commerce, as well as $2.3 million in residual portfolio amortization. Non-GAAP Income from operations for the quarter ending March 31, 2014 was a loss of $905,000. In management’s opinion, the prior fiscal quarter in not comparable on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2014 includes an adjustment of $1.4 million for one-time costs associated with fundraising (including commissions), as well as $818,000 in residual portfolio amortization.
Operating Margin – Changes in the Consolidated Operating Margin are primarily driven by the changes in the proportional mix of the Company’s businesses. In the United States, these changes are the residual acquisition business and Calpian Commerce, and in India, Money-On-Mobile. The Operating Margin of 6% for the quarter ending March 31, 2014 is the most representative of the Company’s current business mix as the lower margin Money-On-Mobile business revenues continue to grow and become a progressively large portion of the total. On a dollar basis, the operating margin more than doubled year over year reflecting the Company’s aggressive growth strategy.
Operating Margin in the U.S. – The total dollar margin was $7.6 million for the year ended March 31, 2014, up $5.0 million for the year from $2.6 million in the prior year. However, the margin percentage declined from 60% in 2013 to 28% in 2014. Both changes are the result of adding the Calpian Commerce, a lower margin operating business, to the higher margin residual acquisition business.
Operating Margin in India – As previously referenced, Money-On-Mobile results were only consolidated for the fourth quarter of 2014. For the one quarter included, Money-On-Mobile contributed $508,000 to the total gross margin in 2014, a margin of 1.71% of revenues.
Net Income – Comprehensive Net Income was a loss of $6.0 million for the year ending March 31, 2014 as compared with $4.2 million for the prior year. Comprehensive Net Income for the quarter ending March 31, 2014 was a gain of $2.2 million. These results include the effects of reflecting Money-On-Mobile as a subsidiary of Calpian, Inc. for the first time. In prior reporting, Money-On-Mobile was reflected as an investment.
Non-GAAP Net Income – Non-GAAP Comprehensive Net Income is Non-GAAP Income from Operations plus interest expense. Management feels that the majority of interest expense incurred supports the domestic residual acquisition business, which is an inherent part of that business and thus should be included when considering Non-GAAP Net Income.
Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS) – Earnings per share was a loss of 25 cents per share for the year ended March 31, 2014 compared to a loss of 19 cents per share for the prior year. In the quarter ended March 31, 2014, earnings per share were 4 cents per share compared to a loss of 3 cents per share in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share (EPS) – Non-GAAP Earnings per share was a loss of 7 cents per share for the year ended March 31, 2014. In the quarter ended March 31, 2014, Non-GAAP earnings per share were a loss of 4 cents per share. These Non-GAAP earnings per share reflect the adjustments previously referenced, plus the elimination of the non-controlling interest which is not attributable to Calpian shareholders.
Assets – Consolidated assets were $48.1 million for the year ending March 31, 2014. Assets included $10.1 million of Calpian Commerce assets and $15.9 in Money-On-Mobile assets. Also included in consolidated assets is Calpian’s history-to-date invested capital in the Money-On-Mobile enterprise added to the consolidated balance sheet as part of the conversion from the investment accounting method to the equity accounting method when Calpian acquired majority control.
Equity – Total equity was $23.4 million for the year ending March 31, 2014, including the reversal of previously passed through losses from the investment in Money-On-Mobile, which are now reflected as part of the company’s investment in the Money-On-Mobile enterprise as shown in the consolidated assets of Calpian.
Cash – Calpian concluded the 2014 fiscal year with a partial closing of an equity raise led by National Securities on March 31, 2014 that was a primary driver of the company’s increase in cash to $8.0 million at year end.
"The change in fiscal year to March 31 and requisite audit of all our balances, both domestically and abroad, has been a major undertaking, but one we’ve executed efficiently and cost effectively without any substantive adjustments to previously reported balances. Calpian is now well positioned to move forward with timely financial reports that fulfill reporting requirements in the U.S. and India with a single annual audit in time periods that will be easy for our shareholders to interpret," said Scott Arey, Calpian’s Chief Financial Officer.
The financial information discussed herein does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to and should be read together with financial statements and related notes appearing in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on August 11, 2014.
