MIAMI, Nov. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Money Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMXI) (“Intermex” or the “Company”), a leading money remittance services company, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 and will host a conference call to discuss those results at 8:30 am ET today.

Intermex Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President Robert Lisy commented, “The record financial results the Company delivered, coupled with market share gains in the third quarter of 2020 demonstrates the strength of our unique business model and differentiated service.” Mr. Lisy added, “Our brand resonates strongly with our agents and customers alike, in good economic times and even more importantly during these challenging times. Our unique strategy, brand, technology and service, work together in concert to create our “house of brick”. Intermex continues to generate peer-leading growth and profitability while delivering strong shareholder returns.”

Third Quarter Financial Results
Intermex delivered its best third quarter in the Company’s history with Revenues of $95.6 million, an increase of 12.0% over the prior year period. This increase in Revenues was supported by an 11.2% increase in customers to 2.2 million, driving the 12.8% growth in money transfer transactions to a record 8.5 million in the third quarter of 2020. Contributing to this growth in customers and transactions was the higher growth experienced in our newest African markets as well as continued growth in our existing LATAM markets.

The Company reported Net Income of $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 135.2% over the prior year period, and basic and diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2020 were $0.25, an increase of 127.3%, compared with the prior year period. These increases were due to the revenue growth noted, along with lower legal costs associated with the settlement of certain legal matters in the prior year period. Additionally, cost efficiencies continue to be realized from negotiated payer fee savings and migration to lower cost deposit services, along with lower amortization and interest expenses.

Adjusted Net Income for the third quarter of 2020 totaled $12.2 million, an increase of 28.0%, and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share totaled $0.32, an increase of 28.0%, compared with the prior year period, due to the reasons discussed above.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2020 increased 16.0% over the prior year comparable period to $19.1 million, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin increased 69 basis points to 20.0%, driven primarily by the revenue growth and focused expense control due to the cost savings initiatives noted above.

Capital & Liquidity
The Company remains highly capitalized with a strong liquidity position. During the third quarter of 2020, from its Net Income noted above, the Company delivered Free Cash Generated (as defined below) of approximately $10.5 million, an increase of 78.8% compared with the prior year period. The Intermex model is highly cash generative, converting 55.0% of its Adjusted EBITDA, after taxes, investments and debt service, to Free Cash Generated in the third quarter 2020, compared with 35.7% in the prior year period.
  
Non-GAAP Measures
Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Free Cash Generated, each a Non-GAAP financial measure, are the primary metrics used by management to evaluate the financial performance of our business. We present these Non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, we believe they are helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, because certain of such measures exclude, among other things, the effects of certain transactions that are outside the control of management, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the jurisdictions in which we operate and capital investments.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as Net Income adjusted to add back certain charges and expenses, such as non-cash amortization resulting from push-down accounting, non-cash compensation costs and other items set forth in the reconciliation table below, as these charges and expenses are not considered a part of our core business operations and are not an indicator of ongoing future Company performance.

Adjusted Earnings per share are calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by GAAP weighted-average common shares outstanding (basic and diluted).

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Net Income before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income taxes, and also adjusted to add back certain charges and expenses, such as non-cash compensation costs and other items set forth in the reconciliation table below, as these charges and expenses are not considered a part of our core business operations and are not an indicator of ongoing future Company performance.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Revenues.

Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income as a measure of operating performance or cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily calculated the same way by different companies and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP.

Free Cash Generated, also a Non-GAAP measure, is defined as Net Income before provision for bad debt and depreciation and amortization adjusted to add back certain non-cash charges and expenses, such as non-cash compensation costs and other items set forth in the reconciliation table below, as these charges and expenses are not considered a part of our core business operations, and reduced by the cash used in investing activities and servicing of our debt obligations.

Reconciliations of Net Income, the Company’s closest GAAP measure, to Adjusted Net Income Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Generated, as well as a reconciliation of Earnings per share to Adjusted Earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are set forth in the tables below following the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
