Verra Mobility Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results


MESA, Ariz., Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Verra Mobility (NASDAQ: VRRM), a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announced today financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020.

“Verra Mobility reported a solid quarter and we are pleased with our execution given the challenging environment. During one of the most difficult quarters in our history, we still provided robust adjusted EBITDA and positive free cash flow,” said David Roberts, Chief Executive Officer, Verra Mobility. “Although the near-term business environment is uncertain, we believe our balanced product portfolio provides stability in these uncertain times, and our longer-term growth initiatives give us confidence in our future as a global leader in smart transportation.”

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $79.8 million, down 27.2% compared to $109.6 million for the second quarter of 2019. Within total revenue, service revenue was $62.8 million and product sales contributed $17.0 million. The decline was in our service revenue, due to the significant impact of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) on the rental car industry, which was partially offset by growth in product sales.
  • Net (loss) income: Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $(15.4) million, or $(0.10) per share, based on 161.7 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net income for the comparable 2019 period was $3.6 million, or $0.02 per share, based on 162.0 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $27.6 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $59.7 million in the same period last year.

First Half of 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the first half of 2020 was $196.5 million, down 5.5% compared to $208.0 million for the first half of 2019. Within total revenue, service revenue was $162.3 million and product sales contributed $34.2 million. The decline was in our service revenue, due to COVID-19’s significant negative impact on the rental car industry, which was partially offset by growth in product sales.
  • Net (loss) income: Net loss for the first half of 2020 was $(8.7) million, or $(0.05) per share, based on 161.3 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net income for the comparable 2019 period was $6.4 million, or $0.04 per share, based on 159.2 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $82.5 million for the first half of 2020, compared to $110.9 million in the first six months of 2019.

Liquidity: As of June 30, 2020, cash and cash equivalents was $113.2 million. We generated $22.5 million in net cash from operations for the first half of 2020. As of June 30, 2020, we had total debt of $870.2 million, net of cash on hand our net debt was $757.0 million, and a $75 million revolver that is undrawn.

The operating results for the first half of 2020 were impacted by COVID-19, which emerged in late 2019 in China and has since spread throughout the world. COVID-19 has had and continues to have a significant negative impact on the global economy, including the rental car industry due to reduced airline travel and widespread travel restrictions and lockdown orders throughout the world. Refer to the section below entitled, Forward Looking Statements, for further discussion on risks and uncertainties.

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 and school districts, including services and technology that enable photo enforcement related to red-light, speed, school bus, and city bus lanes.

Second Quarter 2020 Segment Detail

  • Commercial Services segment generated total revenue of $27.3 million, a decrease of 60% compared to the same period in 2019. Segment profit was $7.2 million, a 84% decrease from $44.1 million in the prior year. The significant decreases in revenue and profit resulted from COVID-19’s negative impact on the rental car industry discussed above, the full impact of which is not yet known. Segment profit margin was 26% for 2020 and 65% for the same period in 2019.
  • Government Solutions segment generated total revenue of $52.5 million growing 27% over the same period in 2019. The growth in this segment is driven by product sales in the current period which totaled $17.0 million. Segment profit was $20.3 million, a 31% increase from $15.5 million in the prior year. Segment margin was 39% in 2020 compared to 38% for the prior year period.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net (loss) income 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. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margins are calculated as EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, divided by total revenue expressed as a percentage.

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 (loss) income, 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 (loss) income 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.
