1. Business description and basis of presentation

 

Business description

 

Planet Payment, Inc. together with its wholly owned subsidiaries (“Planet Payment,” the “Company,” “we,” or “our”) is a provider of international payment and transaction processing and multi-currency processing services. The Company provides its services to approximately 10 3 ,000 active merchant locations in 2 3   countries and territories across the Asia Pacific region, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Europe, primarily through its acquiring bank and processor customers, as well as through its own direct sales force. The Company provides banks and their merchants with innovative services to accept, process and reconcile electronic payments. The Company’s point-of-sale and e-commerce services are integrated within the payment card transaction process , enabling its acquiring customers to process and reconcile payment transactions in multiple currencies, geographies and channels. The Company’s ATM services provide its domestic and international acquirers with additional processing capabilities to help them increase revenue and improve customer satisfaction.  The Company also offers non-financial transaction processing services that allow merchants to offer a range of commercial services including pre-paid mobile phone top-up and bill payments using the same point-of-sale devices deployed to accept payment cards. The Company is a registered third party processor with the major card associations and operates in accordance with industry standards, including the Payment Card Industry, or PCI, Security Council’s Data Security Standards.

 

Basis of presentation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of Planet Payment, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.

 

Unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial information

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated inte rim financial statements as of June  3 0 ,   2015 and for the periods ended June  3 0 , 2015 and 2014 have been prepared on the same basis as the annual consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited financial information for the interim periods presented reflects all adjustments, which are normal and recurring, necessary for a fair presentation of the statement of operations, financial position and cash flows. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. Operating result s for the interim period ended June  3 0 , 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 201 5 .  The December 31, 2014 balance sheet information has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date. Certain information and disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements have been omitted pursuant to the rules and regulation of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“ SEC ”) .

2. Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2014-09 ), which outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance.  The new guidance includes a cohesive set of disclosure requirements intended to provide users of financial statements with comprehensive information about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from a company’s contracts with customers.  The original effective date of ASU 2014-09 of January 1, 2017 has been delayed until January 1, 2018.  Early adoption is not permitted before the original effective date.  The standard allows for either retrospective application to each reporting period presented or retrospective application with the cumulative effect of initially applying this update recognized at the date of initial application.  The Company is currently evaluating the effect ASU 2014-09 will have on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.

 

In April 2015, the F inancial A ccounting S tandards B oard issued A ccounting S tandards U pdate  N o . 2015-03, Interest-Imputation of Interest   Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs ( T opic 835) (“ASU No. 2015-03”).  The purpose of this update is to simplify presentation of debt issuance costs.  The amendments in this update require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts.  The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by the amendments in this update. The amendments in this update are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption of the amendments in this update is permitted for financial statements that have not been previously issued. The Company is currently evaluating the effect ASU 2015-03 will have on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosure.

 

3. Concentration of credit risk

 

The Company’s assets that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and receivables from clients. The Company places some of its cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash with financial banking institutions that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. The Company also maintains cash balances at foreign banking institutions, which are not insured by the FDIC.

 

The Company maintains an allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable based on expected collectability and performs ongoing credit evaluations of customers’ financial condition.

 

The Company’s accounts receivable concentrations of 10% and greater are as follows:

4 .   Net income per share

 

The Company computes net income per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share (“ASC topic 260”). Under ASC topic 260, securities that contain rights to receive non-forfeitable dividends (whether paid or unpaid) are

Table of Contents

participating securities and should be included in the two-class method of computing earnings per share. The Company’s preferred stockholders are entitled to participate in dividends and earnings when, and if, dividends are declared on the common stock. As such, the Company calculates net income per share using the two-class method. The two-class method is an earnings formula that treats a participating security as having rights to dividends that otherwise would have been available to common and preferred stockholders based on their respective rights to receive dividends. Losses are not allocated to the preferred stockholders for computing net loss per share under the two-class method because the preferred stockholders do not have contractual obligations to share in the losses of the Company.

 

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income, adjusted for amounts allocated to participating securities under the two-class method, if applicable, by the weighted average number of common stock outstanding during the period.

 

Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding, assuming dilution, during the period. The diluted earnings per share calculation assumes (i) all stock options and warrants which are in the money are exercised at the beginning of the period and (ii) each issue or series of issues of potential common stock are considered in sequence from the most dilutive to the least dilutive. That is, dilutive potential common stock with the lowest “earnings add-back per incremental share” shall be included in dilutive earnings per share before those shares with higher earnings add back per incremental share.

 

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net income per share:

5 . Stock-based compensation expense and assumptions

 

During the first and second quarter s of 2015, stock options granted to certain employees of the Company were 0. 2 million and 0.1 million, respectively, with a grant fair value of $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively . The actual number of shares that will be issued upon exercise of the options is subject to the achievement of service-based vesting conditions.  Stock-based compensation expense is recorded on a straight line basis from the date of the grant over the requisite service period of 36 months.

 

During the first   quarter of 2015, 0.1 million restricted stock awards with a grant fair value of $0.1 million were granted to an employee of the Company.  The final number of vested shares is subject to service-based vesting conditions.  Expense is recorded on a straight line basis from the date of the grant over the applicable service period of 36 months.

 

Stock-based compensation expense is measured at the grant date based on fair value and recognized as an expense over the requisite service period, net of an estimated forfeiture rate.

8. Commitments and contingencies

 

Employment agreements

 

Pursuant to employment agreements with certain employees, the Company had a commitment to pay severance of approximately $0.8 million as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, in the event of termination without cause, as defined in the employment agreements. Additionally, in the event of termination upon a change of control, as defined in the agreements, the Company had a commitment to pay severance of approximately $1.0 million as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

 

Contingent liabilities

 

In instances where the Company is acting as the merchant acquirer, the Company bears a risk that a merchant may engage in fraud by submitting for payment certain credit card transactions that may have been manipulated, are fictitious, or are otherwise not bona fide. Similarly, the Company bears the risk that a merchant becomes insolvent, owing money to cardholders. To the extent that such fraud or insolvency occurs in circumstances where the Company is liable to make good on any resultant losses, this could affect the Company’s operating results and cash flows. The Company has required certain merchants to post cash reserves of approximately $0.9  million with the sponsoring bank against such liabilities and has itself paid the acquirer a reserve of $0.3 million in connection therewith, which is included in long-term “Restricted cash” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. In addition, the Company holds merchant reserves of approximately $2.2 million. This reserve amount is included in “Restricted cash” with an offset in “Due to merchants”. Under FASB ASC 460, Guarantees , the Company evaluates its ultimate risk and records an estimate of potential loss for chargeback’s related to merchant fraud and processing errors based upon an assessment of actual historical fraud rates and errors in processing compared to recent bank card processing volume levels . No contingent liability has been recorded as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, as the risk of material loss is considered remote. The Company monitors these contingent liabilities on a quarterly basis and will provide for a reserve if deemed necessary .

 

Outstanding litigation

 

From time to time, the Company’s operating entities are involved in legal proceeding in the ordinary course of business. While any litigation contains an element of uncertainty, the Company has no reason to believe that the outcome of such proceedings or claims will have a material adverse effect on the financial condition or results of operations of the Company.

 

Acquiring bank sponsorship agreement

 

In order to offer merchant acquiring services for Visa and MasterCard transactions, the Company must be sponsored by a financial institution that is a principal member of the Visa and MasterCard networks.

 

The Company entered into a five-year agreement with a sponsoring bank effective September 1, 2013. The Company is required to pay minimum annual sponsorship transaction fees of $0.3 million in year one.  The minimum fees escalates each subsequent year with minimum fees of $0.5 million due in year five for total minimum fees of $1.8 million to be paid over the term of the agreement.  Sponsorship fees are recorded to cost of sales with the total agreement minimum of $1.8 million recognized on a straight line basis over the term of the agreement.

 

Pursuant to the agreement, the Company is liable for all losses incurred by the sponsoring bank with respect to the activities of our merchants sponsored under the agreement.  No contingent liability has been recorded as of June 30, 2015 as the risk of material loss is considered remote based on historical information.  The Company monitors this contingent liability on a quarterly basis and will provide for a reserve if deemed necessary.

 

Insurance reimbursement

 

Based on the loss recovery model the Company recorded an insurance reimbursement gain of $0.5 million in selling, general and administrative expenses during the six months ended June 2015.  The insurance reimbursement was related to a previous property and casualty loss recognized by the Company.

9. Credit Facility

 

On June 10, 2015, the Company entered into a $10.0 million secured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) with Citizens Bank, N.A. (“Citizens”) pursuant to a Credit and Security Agreement by and among the Company, certain affiliates thereof as borrowers or guarantors, and Citizens (the “Credit Agreement”).  The line of credit under the Credit Agreement is secured by substantially all of the Company’s personal property, including the Company’s intellectual property and that of its subsidiaries that are borrowers or guarantors.  The interest rate applicable to committed borrowings is tied to LIBOR plus a margin of 2.5%.  The Credit Agreement also provides for a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $2.0 million. The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including, among others, financial covenants based on the Company’s leverage and fixed charge coverage ratios, as well as an obligation to maintain a minimum availability requirement of at least $5.0 million in the aggregate of cash and availability under the line of credit.  The Credit Facility will provide funds for general corporate purposes and repurchases of issued and outstanding capital stock of the Company.  The Credit Facility matures on June 10, 2020 and is payable in full upon maturity.  As of June 30, 2015, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and no amounts were outstanding.

1 2 . Segment information

 

General information

 

The segment and geographic information provided in the table below is being reported consistent with the Company’s method of internal reporting. Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available and which is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker   (“ CODM ”) in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The CODM reviews net revenue and gross profit by service by geographical region. The Company operates in two reportable segments :   m ulti-currency processing services and payment processing services.

 

Information about revenue, profit and assets

 

The CODM evaluates performance and allocates resources based on net revenue and gross profit of each segment. For purposes of analyzing segments, gross profit of the multi-currency processing services segment is equal to net revenue less multi-currency cost of sales of   $ 0 . 7 million and   $0. 5   million, which is included in “processing and services cos ts” for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and $ 1 . 3 million and $1.1 million for the six months ended June  3 0 , 2015 and 2014, respectively. The gross profit for the payment processing services segment includes net revenue of the segment less the cost of revenue component “payment processing services fees”, which includes interchange and card network fees and assessments. Net revenue and gross profit by geographical region is based upon where the transaction originated. Lastly, the Company does not evaluate performance or allocate resources using segment asset data. Long-lived assets are primarily located in the Americas and Europe and as of June  3 0 , 2015 and December 31, 2014, long-lived asset amounts are $8 . 4 million and $9.1  million, respectively.

 

The Company conducts its business primarily in three geographical regions: Asia Pacific (“APAC”), the Americas, and Central Europe, Middle East and Africa (“CEMEA”). The following table provides revenue concentration by geographic region. Analysis of revenue by segment and geographical region and reconciliations to consolidated revenue and gross profit are as follows:

Business overview

 

We believe Planet Payment is a leading provider of international payment and transaction processing and multi-currency processing services. We provide our services to approximately 10 3 ,000 active merchant locations in 2 3  countries and territories across the Asia Pacific region, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Europe, primarily through our acquiring bank and processor customers, as well as through our own direct sales force. Our point-of-sale and e-commerce services help merchants sell more goods and services to consumers and, together with our ATM services, enable our acquiring customers to process and reconcile payment transactions in multiple currencies, geographies and channels.

 

To ensure our long-term success and the success of our customers:

 

·

we invest in new services and in enhancing our processing platform to facilitate more convenient and innovative payment methods, mobile payments and e-commerce; as well as the processing of non-financial transactions such as mobile phone top-up.

 

·

we continually work to improve the speed, efficiency, security and performance of our platform and our payments and transaction processing services to enhance the reliability of our global processing infrastructure and protect the security of cardholder information.

 

Key trends

 

Our financial results have been and we believe will continue to be impacted by trends in the international payment processing industry, including the global shift toward electronic-based methods of payments and away from paper-based methods of payment, the increasing levels of international travel and commerce and the rapid adoption of e-commerce on a global scale. Our results are impacted by the changes in levels of international spending using electronic methods, and as a result, negative trends in the global economy and other factors which negatively impact international travel may negatively impact the growth in total transaction volume processed using our platform. The global economy has been undergoing a period of economic uncertainty and stock markets are experiencing high levels of volatility, and it is difficult to predict how long this uncertainty and volatility will continue.

 

We plan to grow our business by increasing the use of our services by the merchants of our existing and future acquiring bank and processor customers. If we are successful in increasing our share of this currently addressable market, as well as by adding new acquiring bank and processor customers and expanding into new geographies and business sectors, we would expect our revenue to continue to grow. In addition, based on the positive trends in the international payment processing industry noted above, we anticipate that as and when more payments are made using electronic methods, such as those that we offer, our revenue would also increase.
