Verra Mobility (PRNewsfoto/Verra Mobility)

  • Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $4.0 million, or $0.02 per share
  • Reports second quarter revenue of $128.7 million; total year-to-date revenue of $218.5 million
  • Generated cash flows from operations of $37.5 million
  • Collected $28.1 million in the second quarter of 2021 against the outstanding City of New York Department of Transportation receivable
  • Provides full year 2021 guidance; expects stronger growth in second half of 2021

Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM), a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announced today the financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

"We delivered second-quarter revenue of $128.7 million as a surge in leisure travel led to solid growth and profitability across both business segments," stated David Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Verra Mobility. "This stellar performance was led by our Commercial Services segment, which grew triple digits year-over-year and 41% sequentially as robust demand for rental cars remained strong in our key tolling markets. Our Government Solutions segment continues to benefit from the NYC school zone speed camera program. In addition, traffic patterns improved throughout the quarter as local agencies reactivated their red-light and speed enforcement programs, resulting in nearly 41% year-over-year growth in our service revenue. On a consolidated basis, strong flow-through in both business segments led to triple-digit year-over-year adjusted EBITDA growth with margins improving to approximately 53%. Overall, we are very pleased with our performance for the first half of 2021. Given the improving business metrics and favorable travel trends, we are reintroducing guidance to reflect a much stronger second half of 2021."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $128.7 million, an increase of 61% compared to $79.8 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase was attributable to service revenue resulting from improved travel demand that positively impacted the rental car industry in our Commercial Services segment, and growth in both speed and red-light programs in our Government Solutions segment.
  • Net income (loss): Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $4.0 million, or $0.02 per share based on 166.0 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net loss for the comparable 2020 period was $(23.7) million, or $(0.15) per share, based on 161.7 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS): Adjusted EPS for the second quarter of 2021 was $0.10 per share compared to $0.07 per share for the second quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $68.6 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $27.6 million for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 53% of total revenue for 2021 and 35% for 2020.

The Company reports its results of operations based on two operating segments:

  • Commercial Services delivers market-leading automated toll and violations management and title and registration solutions to rental car companies, fleet management companies, and other large fleet owners.
  • Government Solutions delivers market-leading automated safety solutions to municipalities, school districts and government agencies, including services and technology that enable photo enforcement related to speed, red-light, school bus, and city bus lane management.

Second Quarter 2021 Segment Detail

  • The Commercial Services segment generated total revenue of $66.5 million, a 144% increase compared to $27.3 million in the same period in 2020. Segment profit was $42.7 million, a 494% increase from $7.2 million in the prior year. The significant increases in revenue and profit resulted from improved travel demand that positively impacted the rental car industry. The segment profit margin was 64% for 2021 and 26% for the same period in 2020.
  • The Government Solutions segment generated total revenue of $62.2 million, an 18% increase compared to $52.5 million in the same period in 2020. The increase was due to growth in both speed and red-light programs which was partially offset by a decrease in product sales due to a single customer's buying patterns variability year over year. The segment profit was $25.5 million, a 25% increase from $20.3 million in the prior year. The segment profit margin was 41% for 2021 and 39% for 2020.

First Half of 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the first half of 2021 was $218.5 million, an increase of 11% compared to $196.5 million for the first half of 2020. The increase was attributable to service revenue resulting from improved travel demand that positively impacted the rental car industry in our Commercial Services segment, and growth in both speed and red-light programs in our Government Solutions segment.
  • Net loss: Net loss for the first half of 2021 was $4.9 million, or $0.03 per share, based on 162.3 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net loss for the comparable 2020 period was $1.6 million, or $0.01 per share, based on 161.3 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $108.9 million for the first half of 2021, compared to $82.5 million in the first half of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 50% of total revenue for the first half of 2021 and 42% for 2020.

Liquidity: As of June 30, 2021, cash and cash equivalents were $147.3 million and we generated $37.5 million in cash flows from operations for 2021. As of June 30, 2021, we had total debt of $1.0 billion, net of cash on hand, our net debt was $854.5 million, and a $57.0 million availability to borrow on the revolver that is undrawn.

Restatement of Previously Reported Financial Information

We restated our consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and for the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019, and 2018, including interim periods within the fiscal years 2020 and 2019. This was based on recent guidance by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on April 12, 2021 regarding the accounting for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies ("SPACs"). As a result, this press release includes restated information for the affected prior periods which should be read in conjunction with the restated information in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021. The new accounting treatment for warrants impacts net loss in prior periods but has no impact on revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, or total cash flows.

Redflex Acquisition: On June 17, 2021, we completed the previously announced acquisition of Redflex Holdings Limited, a public company limited by shares, incorporated in Australia and listed on the Australian Securities Exchange ("Redflex"). Redflex is a provider of intelligent traffic management products and services that are sold and managed in the Asia Pacific, North America, United Kingdom, Europe, and Middle East regions. Redflex develops, manufactures, and operates a wide range of platform-based solutions, utilizing advanced sensor and image capture technologies that enable active management of state and local motorways.

Pursuant to the Scheme Implementation Agreement entered into by us and Redflex on January 21, 2021, as amended by the Deed of Amendment and Consent, dated April 30, 2021, we purchased one hundred percent of the outstanding equity of Redflex at A$0.96 per share at consideration of A$152.5 million, or approximately US$117.9 million.

Guidance provided by Verra Mobility is subject to change as a variety of factors can affect actual results. Those factors are identified in the safe harbor language at the end of this press release.

Verra Mobility has provided the following forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS.

(i)

Transaction and other related expenses incurred in the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 primarily relate to costs for the acquisition of Redflex and certain costs for the debt offering of senior unsecured notes and refinancing the first lien term loan during the period. Transaction and other related expenses incurred in the six months ended June 30, 2020 primarily relate to costs associated with our Pagatelia acquisition and certain costs for refinancing our debt.

(ii)

This consists of adjustments to the private placement warrants liability from the remeasurement to fair value at the end of each reporting period.

(iii)

We recorded a $1.7 million charge for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and a $4.4 million charge for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The TRA liability adjustment in 2021 is arising from higher estimated state tax rates due to changes in statutory rates, whereas in 2020 it is arising from higher estimated state tax rates due to a change in apportionment.

(iv)

The loss on extinguishment of debt for the six months ended June 30, 2021 consists of a $4.0 million write-off of pre-existing deferred financing costs and $1.3 million of lender and third-party costs associated with the issuance of the new first lien term loan.

(v)

Stock-based compensation represents the non-cash charge related to the issuance of awards under the Verra Mobility Corporation 2018 Equity Incentive Plan.

The Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were not presented as they were not meaningful due to the disproportionate effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest expense, net, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes certain non-cash expenses and other transactions that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, exclude some but not all items that affect our cash flow from operating activities. As a result, they may not be comparable to similarly titled performance measures presented by other companies.

We use these metrics to measure our performance from period to period both at the consolidated level as well as within our operating segments, to evaluate and fund incentive compensation programs and to compare our results to those of our competitors. In addition to Adjusted EBITDA being a significant measure of performance for management purposes, we also believe that this presentation provides useful information to investors regarding financial and business trends related to our results of operations and that when non-GAAP financial information is viewed with GAAP financial information, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as substitutes for net income (loss), cash flows from operations, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Free Cash Flow
We define "Free Cash Flow" as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures.

Adjusted Net Income
We define "Adjusted Net Income" as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude amortization of intangibles and certain non-cash or non-recurring expenses.

Adjusted EPS
We define "Adjusted EPS" as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average shares for the period.
