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 interim financial statements as of June 30, 2016 and for the periods ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 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, 2015. Operating results for the interim period ended June 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016.  The December 31, 2015 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 (“FASB”) 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 condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures .

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (“ASU No. 2016-02”) The new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record an ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application of the amendments in ASU No. 2016-02 is permitted for all entities.  A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available.   The Company is currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-02 will have on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2016-08”). The amendments in ASU 2016-08 do not change the core principle of the guidance. The amendments clarify the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations.   The update suggests that entities recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments in ASU 2016-08 are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09.  The Company is currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-08 will have on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASU No. 2016-09”) This update is part of the FASB’s Simplification Initiative, which simplifies the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for any entity in any interim or annual period. We do not expect a material impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows from the   adoption of this guidance .

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2016-10”). The amendments in this update do not change the core principle of the guidance. The amendments in this update clarify the identifying performance obligations and the licensing implementation guidance, while retaining the related principles for those areas.  The amendments in this update clarify that contractual provisions that, explicitly or implicitly, require an entity to transfer control of additional goods or services to a customer should be distinguished from contractual provisions that, explicitly or implicitly, define the attributes of a single promised license The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments in this update are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of update ASU 2014-09.  The Company is currently evaluating the effect ASU 2016-10 will have on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

 

In May 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (“ASU 2016-12”), in which the FASB finalized the guidance in the new revenue standard on collectibility, noncash consideration, presentation of sales tax, and transition.  The amendments are intended to address implementation issues that were raised by stakeholders and discussed by the Revenue Recognition Transition Resource Group (TRG), and provide additional practical expedients.  The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments in this update are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of update ASU 2014-09.  The Company is currently

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 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.

In accordance with ASC 260-10-45-48, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company excluded 396,500 and 718,407 , respectively, of contingently-issued restricted shares from diluted weighted average common stock outstanding as the contingencies were neither (a) satisfied at the reporting date nor (b) would have been satisfied if the reporting date was at the end of the contingency period.

Diluted net income per share increases when convertible preferred stock is included in the required sequence in the diluted earnings per share computation. As such, convertible preferred stock is excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

 

5. Stock-based compensation expense

 

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.

 

During the first quarter of 2016, 0.8 million stock options were granted to certain employees of the Company, with a grant fair value of $0.7 million. 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 second quarter of 2016, 0.1 million restricted stock awards with a grant fair value of $0.2 million were granted to certain members of the Company’s Board of Directors.  The final number of vested shares is subject to

10


 

Table of Contents

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 12 months.

 

During the second quarter of 2016, 0.5 million shares of the 2015 restricted stock awards granted to certain officers of the Company vested.  The market condition was achieved as the Company’s volume weighted average price on NASDAQ was greater than or equal to $3.50 per share for seven consecutive trading days, or any ten trading days over a consecutive thirty-five day period. The market condition was valued at $0.7 million, of which $0.5 million was expensed as of March 31, 2016 and an additional $0.2 million was expensed during the three months ended June 30, 2016.

8. Commitments and contingencies

 

Employment agreements

 

Pursuant to employment agreements with certain employees, the Company had a commitment to pay severance of approximately $1.2 million as of June 30, 2016 and $0.9 million as of December 31, 2015, in the event of an involuntary termination, 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 $1.2 million as of June 30, 2016 and $1.1 million as of December 31, 2015.

 

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   $1.0   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, 2016 and December 31, 2015, as the risk of material loss is considered remote.

12


 

Table of Contents

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 proceedings 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 was required to pay minimum annual sponsorship transaction fees of $0.3 million in year one.  The minimum fees escalate 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 payment processing service fees 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 its merchants sponsored under the agreement.  No contingent liability has been recorded as of June 30, 2016 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.    

 

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”). 

 

On January 28, 2016, the Company entered into a Second Amendment to Credit and Security Agreement with Citizens and certain subsidiary affiliates of the Company as borrowers and/or guarantors (the “Amendment”). The Amendment amends the Credit Agreement and provides for an increase in the Company’s line of credit (the “Line of Credit”) with Citizens from $10.0 million to $20.0 million.  The Line of Credit 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 December 31, 2020 and is payable in full upon maturity.     

 

On April 12, 2016, the Company borrowed approximately $13.9 million under the Credit Facility. Subsequently, on April 26, 2016, the Company repaid $4.0 million on the Credit Facility. As of June 30, 2016, the Company had $9.9 million outstanding under the Credit Facility and was in compliance with all financial covenants contained in the Credit Agreement.

12. 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: multi-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 $0.6 million and $0.7 million, which is included in “processing and services costs” for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and $1.4 million and $1.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, 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 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, long-lived asset amounts are $7.1 million and $7.4 million, respectively.

 

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

Business overview

 

Planet Payment is a provider of international payment and transaction processing and multi-currency processing services. We provide our services to approximately 178,000 active merchant locations in 22 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. We provide banks and their merchants with innovative services to accept, process and reconcile electronic payments. Our point-of-sale multi-currency payment processing services are designed for merchants in the retail, restaurant, and hospitality environments. We also provide payment services for e-commerce and mail and telephone order merchants. Our point-of-sale and e-commerce services help merchants sell more goods and services to consumers, and are integrated within the payment card transaction process, enabling our acquiring customers to process and reconcile payment transactions in multiple currencies, geographies and channels. Our ATM services provide our domestic and international acquirers with additional processing capabilities to help them increase revenue and improve customer satisfaction.  We also offer 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. We are a registered third-party processor with the major card associations and operate in accordance with industry standards, including the Payment Card Industry, or PCI, Security Council’s Data Security Standards.

 

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.

 

Key metrics

 

Our management relies on certain performance indicators to manage and assess our business. The key performance indicators set forth below help us evaluate growth trends, establish budgets, measure the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts and assess operational efficiencies. We believe that improvements in these metrics will result in improvements in our financial performance over time. We monitor our non-GAAP financial measures and other business statistics as a measure of operating performance in addition to net income and the other measures included in our consolidated financial statements.
