    1.

    Effective October 1, 2019, our revenues are presented net of interchange and network fees in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. This change in presentation affected our reported revenues and operating expenses for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, by the same amount and had no effect on our income from operations.

    2.

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

    3.

    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.

Greg Daily, Chairman and CEO of i3 Verticals, commented, “We delivered strong fiscal second quarter results. Our momentum from the fiscal first quarter continued through January and February, but we began to see the economic impact of the COVID‑19 pandemic in the second half of March with a decline in payment volume. I could not be prouder of our employees’ response to the crisis as they rallied to serve our customers. Our support teams utilized our advanced platforms to quickly shift to remote support and provided uninterrupted service to our customers.

“Due to the uncertainty of the economic environment, we have paused acquisition activity until there is greater clarity on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have several deals currently on hold. Despite the market downturn, our acquisition pipeline has continued to build. We believe our strong balance sheet, recent exchangeable notes offering and capacity under our senior credit facility position us well for acquisition activity, even in the current economic environment.”

Impact of COVID-19

Daily continued, “Our first priority is the health and safety of our employees and their families, so we implemented work-from-home policies for our employees in mid-March and limited all employee travel. Throughout this period, I have been inspired by the creativity, dedication and commitment of our team, which has allowed us to quickly adapt to the work-from-home structure and continue to service our customers in a prompt and efficient manner.

“We expect that the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic will adversely impact our fiscal third quarter performance. The various strategies enacted by federal, state and local governments to combat the spread of COVID-19 have obviously slowed the pace of commerce. This has caused a decrease in our payment volume and adversely impacted our revenues. In particular, our Education vertical experienced a significant decline in payment volumes as K-12 schools closed for the remainder of the current school year. Our restaurant and hotel customers also experienced a significant decline in payment volume. Our Public Sector, B2B and other vertical customers experienced less of an impact in payment volume. We benefited from our strategy of diversifying our business across multiple verticals to reduce sector-specific downturns and safeguard against effects on our payment volume from any one market sector. This strategy should also serve us well in a recovery.

“We also expect the long-term impact of COVID-19 to lead to further digitization of payments, particularly within the Public Sector and Education verticals, which have been slower to adopt electronic payments. We believe that the Public Sector and Education markets will have increased budget pressures and their constituents will demand greater access to online services and payments. We believe that our SaaS solutions are designed to address many of these issues and that the ability of our nimble salesforce in each vertical to sell technology-enabled payments will help us drive growth as the economy begins to rebound. On the other side of this crisis, we believe that we are well-positioned to capture market share,” concluded Daily.

2020 Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant uncertainty in the economy and the extent to which COVID-19 will impact the Company's future results is difficult to reasonably estimate at this time. Therefore, the Company is not providing a financial outlook for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020.

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 guidance 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 generally 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 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 and include, but are not limited to: (i) the anticipated impact to the Company’s business operations, payment volume and volume attrition due to the recent global pandemic of a novel strain of the coronavirus (COVID-19); (ii) the Company’s indebtedness and the ability to maintain compliance with the financial covenants in the Company’s senior secured credit facility in light of the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19); (iii) the ability to meet the Company’s liquidity needs in light of the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19); (iv) the ability to raise additional funds on terms acceptable to us, if at all, whether 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) the dependence on non-exclusive distribution partners to market the Company's products and services; (ix) the ability to keep pace with rapid developments and changes in the Company's industry and provide new products and services; (x) liability and reputation damage from unauthorized disclosure, destruction or modification of data or disruption of the Company's services; (xi) technical, operational and regulatory risks related to the Company's information technology systems and third-party providers’ systems; (xii) reliance on third parties for significant services; (xiii) exposure to economic conditions and political risks affecting consumer and commercial spending, including the use of credit cards; (xiv) the ability to increase the Company's existing vertical markets, expand into new vertical markets and execute the Company's growth strategy; (xv) the ability to successfully identify acquisition targets, complete those acquisitions and effectively integrate those acquisitions into the Company's services; (xvi) degradation of the quality of the Company's products, services and support; (xvii) the ability to retain clients, many of which are small- and medium-sized businesses, which can be difficult and costly to retain; (xviii) the Company's ability to successfully manage its intellectual property; (xix) the ability to attract, recruit, retain and develop key personnel and qualified employees; (xx) risks related to laws, regulations and industry standards; (xxi) operating and financial restrictions imposed by the Company's senior secured credit facility; (xxii) risks related to the accounting method for the Company’s 1.0% Exchangeable Senior Notes due February 15, 2025 (the “Exchangeable Notes”); (xxiii) the ability to raise the funds necessary to settle exchanges of the Exchangeable Notes or to repurchase the Exchangeable Notes upon a fundamental change; (xxiv) risks related to the conditional exchange feature of the Exchangeable Notes; and (xxv) the risk factors included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2019 and in our subsequent filings. 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 stockholders 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 stockholders 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.
