February 8, 2022

Raises 2022 Outlook

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 8, 2022-- i3 Verticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: IIIV) (“i3 Verticals” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2021.

Highlights for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2021 vs. 2020

  • Revenue was $73.9 million, an increase of 66% over the prior year's first quarter.
  • Net loss was $3.7 million, compared to net loss of $3.0 million in the prior year's first quarter.
  • Net loss attributable to i3 Verticals, Inc. was $2.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $18.3 million, an increase of 72.4% over the prior year's first quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 as a percentage of revenue was 24.7%, compared to 23.6% in the prior year's first quarter.
  • Diluted net loss per share available to Class A common stock was $0.11, compared to diluted net loss per share available to Class A common stock of $0.10 in the prior year's first quarter.
  • Pro forma adjusted diluted earnings per share1, which gives pro forma effect to the Company's tax rate, was $0.35 compared to $0.21 for the prior year's first quarter.
  • Integrated payments2 were 61% of payment volume for the first quarter ended December 31, 2021.
  • Software and related services revenue3 as a percentage of total revenue was 49% and 38% for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
  • As of December 31, 2021, consolidated interest coverage ratio was 9.18x, total leverage ratio was 3.82x and consolidated senior leverage ratio was 2.18x. These ratios are defined in the Company’s Senior Secured Credit Facility.
  • Annualized Recurring Revenue ("ARR")4 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 was $240.4 million and $157.5 million, respectively, representing a period-to-period growth rate of 52.7%.
  • As previously announced in our press release on January 4, 2022, the Company acquired a business effective December 31, 2021, that further strengthens the Company's Public Sector Vertical. The acquired business provides solutions for court system data management in the southeast and mid-Atlantic. Among other solutions, this business provides software products that enable electronic filing, case management and document imaging. Total purchase consideration was $38.7 million, including $35.0 million in cash consideration, funded by proceeds from the Company's revolving credit facility, and $3.7 million of contingent consideration. The aggregate maximum contingent consideration payable for these acquisitions is up to $10.0 million, subject to the satisfaction of certain growth metrics over established time periods.

1.

Represents a non-GAAP financial measure. For additional information (including reconciliation information), see the attached schedules to this release.

2.

Integrated payments represents payment transactions that are generated in situations where payment technology is embedded within the Company's own proprietary software, a client’s software or critical business process.

3.

Software and related services revenue includes the sale of licenses, subscriptions, installation and implementation services, and ongoing support specific to software.

4.

Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) is the annualized revenue derived from software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) arrangements, transaction-based software-revenue, software maintenance, recurring software-based services, payments revenue and other recurring revenue sources within the quarter. This excludes contracts that are not recurring or are one-time in nature. The Company focuses on ARR because it helps i3 to assess the health and trajectory of the business. ARR does not have a standardized definition and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. It should be reviewed independently of revenue and it is not a forecast. The active contracts at the end of a reporting period used in calculating ARR may or may not be extended or renewed by the Company’s customers.

Greg Daily, Chairman and CEO of i3 Verticals, commented, “We are proud to deliver another strong quarter, as we once again set new company records in quarterly revenue and adjusted EBITDA. We continue to execute on our vertical market software strategy, as our software and related services revenue grew to 49% of our total revenue for the quarter, surpassing payments revenue for the first time.

“We previously announced a Public Sector acquisition, effective December 31, which expands our software platform and services within that vertical market. We see great opportunity within the Public Sector market and this acquisition has been a fantastic fit with our existing team and products. Our momentum across the company gives us confidence in delivering strong results in the future.”

Revised 2022 Outlook

The Company's practice is to provide annual guidance, excluding future acquisitions and transaction-related costs.

The Company is providing the following revised outlook for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022:

Assumes an effective pro forma tax rate of 25.0% (non-GAAP).

With respect to the “Revised 2022 Outlook” above, reconciliation of net revenue, adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure on a forward-looking basis is not available without unreasonable efforts. This inability results from the inherent difficulty in forecasting generally and quantifying certain projected amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations. In particular, sufficient information is not available to calculate certain adjustments required for such reconciliations, including changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, income tax expense of i3 Verticals, Inc. and equity-based compensation expense. The Company expects these adjustments may have a potentially significant impact on future GAAP financial results.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release contains information prepared in conformity with GAAP as well as non-GAAP information. It is management’s intent to provide non-GAAP financial information to enhance understanding of the Company's consolidated financial information as prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP information should be considered by the reader in addition to, but not instead of, the financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each non-GAAP financial measure and the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented so as not to imply that more emphasis should be placed on the non-GAAP measure. The non-GAAP financial information presented may be determined or calculated differently by other companies.

Additional information about non-GAAP financial measures, including, but not limited to, adjusted net revenue, pro forma adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted diluted EPS, and a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included on pages 10 through 12 in the financial schedules of this release.

All statements other than statements of historical fact or relating to present facts or current conditions included in this release are forward-looking statements, including any statements regarding the Company's fiscal 2022 financial outlook and statements of a general economic or industry specific nature. Forward-looking statements give the Company's current expectations and projections relating to its financial condition, results of operations, guidance, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “plan,” “intend,” “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could have,” “exceed,” “significantly,” “likely” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.

The forward-looking statements contained in this release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of the Company's industry experience and its perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you review and consider information presented herein, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of future performance or results. They depend upon future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond the Company's control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect the Company's actual future performance or results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Certain of these factors and other risks are discussed in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and include, but are not limited to: (i) the anticipated impact to the timing and recovery of the Company’s business operations, payment volume and volume attrition due to the global pandemic of a novel strain of the coronavirus (COVID-19), including the anticipated impact of further school closures on our Education vertical; (ii) the Company’s indebtedness and the ability to maintain compliance with the financial covenants in the Company’s senior secured credit facility, particularly in light of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; (iii) the ability to meet the Company’s liquidity needs, particularly in light of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic; (iv) the ability to raise additional funds on terms acceptable to us, if at all, whether through debt, equity or a combination thereof; (v) the triggering of impairment testing of the Company’s fair-valued assets, including goodwill and intangible assets, in the event of a decline in the price of the Company’s Class A common stock; (vi) the ability to generate revenues sufficient to maintain profitability and positive cash flow; (vii) competition in the Company's industry and the ability to compete effectively; (viii) consolidation in the banking and financial services industry; (ix) risk of shortages, price increases, changes, delays or discontinuations of hardware due to supply chain disruptions with respect to our limited number of suppliers; the dependence on non-exclusive distribution partners to market the Company's products and services; (x) the ability to keep pace with rapid developments and changes in the Company's industry and provide new products and services; (xi) liability and reputation damage from unauthorized disclosure, destruction or modification of data or disruption of the Company's services; (xii) technical, operational and regulatory risks related to the Company's information technology systems and third-party providers’ systems; (xiii) reliance on third parties for significant services; (xiv) exposure to economic conditions and political risks affecting consumer and commercial spending, including the use of credit cards; (xv) the ability to increase the Company's existing vertical markets, expand into new vertical markets and execute the Company's growth strategy; (xvi) our ability to protect our systems and data from continually evolving cybersecurity risks or other technological risks, including the impact of any cybersecurity incidents or security breaches; (xvii) the ability to successfully identify acquisition targets and thereafter to complete and effectively integrate those acquisitions into the Company's services; (xviii) potential degradation of the quality of the Company's products, services and support; (xix) the ability to retain clients, many of which are small- and medium-sized businesses, which can be difficult and costly to retain; (xx) the Company's ability to successfully manage its intellectual property; (xxi) the ability to attract, recruit, retain and develop key personnel and qualified employees; (xxii) risks related to laws, regulations and industry standards; (xxiii) the impact of government investigations, claims and litigation; (xxiv) operating and financial restrictions imposed by the Company's senior secured credit facility; and (xxv) the risk factors included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2021. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, the Company's actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release speaks only as of the date of this release. Factors or events that could cause the Company's actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures are important to enable investors to understand and evaluate its ongoing operating results. Accordingly, i3 Verticals includes non-GAAP financial measures when reporting its financial results to shareholders and potential investors in order to provide them with an additional tool to evaluate the Company’s ongoing business operations. i3 Verticals believes that the non-GAAP financial measures are representative of comparative financial performance that reflects the economic substance of i3 Verticals’ current and ongoing business operations.

Although non-GAAP financial measures are often used to measure the Company's operating results and assess its financial performance, they are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. i3 Verticals believes that its provision of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with important key financial performance indicators that are utilized by management to assess the Company's operating results, evaluate the business and make operational decisions on a prospective, going-forward basis. Hence, management provides disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures to give shareholders and potential investors an opportunity to see i3 Verticals as viewed by management, to assess i3 Verticals with some of the same tools that management utilizes internally and to be able to compare such information with prior periods. i3 Verticals believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional information to help them better understand its financial statements just as management utilizes these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand the business, manage budgets and allocate resources.
