MESA, Ariz., Feb. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Verra Mobility Corporation (NASDAQ: VRRM), a leading provider of smart mobility technology solutions, announced today the financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Verra Mobility (PRNewsfoto/Verra Mobility)

"We delivered fantastic results for the fourth quarter, highlighted by robust revenue and Adjusted EBITDA performance," said David Roberts, President and CEO, Verra Mobility. "Our strong results are aligned with three macro trends across our operating segments: First, we're seeing strong travel demand by both consumers and businesses, particularly in the United States. The second macro trend is the continued push for safer roads and communities, which drives demand for investments in automated safety enforcement. And lastly, the complexities surrounding university and municipality parking create opportunities that we address and solve through our software-enabled parking management solutions."

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $211.0 million, an increase of 13% compared to $186.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. Service revenue growth was 13% due to increases in travel volume and related tolling activity in the Commercial Services segment which grew 16%, and the growth in service revenue from our Government Solutions segment, which increased 10% and was driven by the expansion of speed programs. Parking Solutions service revenue increased 10% due to increases in our software as a service (SaaS) product offerings and various services related to parking management solutions.
  • Net income: Net income for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $3.0 million, or $0.02 per share, based on 168.6 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net income for the comparable 2022 period was $28.2 million, or $0.13 per share, based on 154.8 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS): Adjusted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $0.24 per share compared to $0.25 per share for the fourth quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $91.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to $83.6 million for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 43% of total revenue for 2023 and 45% for 2022.

We report our results of operations based on three operating segments:

  • Commercial Services offers 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 automated safety solutions to municipalities, school districts and government agencies, including services and technology that enable photo enforcement cameras to detect and process traffic violations related to speed, red-light, school bus and city bus lane management.
  • Parking Solutions provides an integrated suite of parking software, transaction processing and hardware solutions to universities, municipalities, parking operators, healthcare facilities and transportation hubs in the United States and Canada.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Segment Detail

  • The Commercial Services segment generated total revenue of $94.5 million, a 16% increase compared to $81.6 million in the same period in 2022. Segment profit was $62.2 million, a 27% increase from $49.0 million in the prior year. The increases in revenue and profit compared to the prior period resulted from increased travel volume and the continued adoption of the all-inclusive fee structure for our rental car company customers as well as the increase in enrolled vehicles and higher tolling activity for our fleet management company customers. The segment profit margin was 66% for 2023 and 60% for 2022.
  • The Government Solutions segment generated total revenue of $94.0 million, an 11% increase compared to $84.6 million in the same period in 2022. The increase was due to a 10% increase in recurring service revenue over the prior year quarter, primarily driven by the expansion of speed programs. The segment profit was $24.1 million in 2023 compared to $30.7 million in the prior year with segment profit margins of 26% for 2023 and 36% for 2022. The decrease in segment profit is primarily attributable to a $3.9 million installation and service parts write-down as well as increased operating expenses associated with enhancing customer-facing platforms and systems.
  • The Parking Solutions segment generated total revenue of $22.5 million, a 13% increase compared to $19.9 million in the same period in 2022 partly due to an increase in one-time product sales and professional services compared to the prior year quarter. The segment profit was $5.0 million compared to $3.9 million in the prior year with segment profit margins of 22% for 2023 and 20% for 2022. The increase in segment profit is primarily attributable to an increase in our gross profit margin for professional services, software as a service product offerings and citation processing services related to parking management solutions.

Full Year 2023 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for fiscal year 2023 was $817.3 million, an increase of 10% compared to $741.6 million for fiscal year 2022. Service revenue growth was 13% due to increases in travel volume and related tolling activity in the Commercial Services segment, which grew 14%, and the growth in service revenue from our Government Solutions segment, which increased 12% and was driven by the expansion of speed programs. Parking Solutions service revenue increased 8% due to increases in our professional services and SaaS product offerings related to parking management solutions.
  • Net Income: Net income for fiscal year 2023 was $57.0 million, or $0.36 per share, based on 160.0 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Net income for the comparable 2022 period was $92.5 million, or $0.50 per share, based on 159.0 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • Adjusted EPS: Adjusted EPS for fiscal year 2023 was $1.08 per share compared to $1.02 per share for the fiscal year 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was $371.5 million for fiscal year 2023, compared to $338.5 million for fiscal year 2022. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 45% of total revenue for fiscal year 2023 and 46% for 2022.

Liquidity: As of December 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents were $136.3 million, and we generated $206.1 million in cash flows from operations for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

Interest Rate Swap

In December 2022, we entered into a cancellable interest rate swap agreement to hedge our exposure to interest rate fluctuations associated with the LIBOR (now transitioned to Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate) portion of the variable interest rate on our 2021 Term Loan. Under the interest rate swap agreement, we pay a fixed rate of 5.17% and the counterparty pays a variable interest rate which is net settled. The notional amount on the interest rate swap is $675.0 million. We have the monthly option to terminate the interest rate swap agreement until December 2025 in the event interest rates decrease. Any changes in the fair value of the derivative instrument (including accrued interest) and related cash payments are recorded in the condensed consolidated statements of operations within the loss (gain) on interest rate swap line item. We recorded a $2.8 million loss during the three months ended December 31, 2023, of which approximately $3.0 million is associated with the derivative instrument re-measured to fair value at the end of the reporting period, netted by $0.2 million related to the net cash received. We recorded a $0.8 million loss during fiscal year 2023, of which approximately $(0.3) million is associated with the derivative instrument re-measured to fair value at the end of the reporting period, netted by $1.1 million related to the monthly cash payments. We recorded a gain of $1.0 million during fiscal year 2022 associated with the derivative instrument re-measured to fair value.

Warrants

During fiscal year 2023, we processed the exercise of approximately 20 million warrants in exchange for the issuance of 16,273,406 shares of Class A Common Stock. There were 14,035,449 shares issued on a cash-basis resulting in the receipt of $161.4 million in cash proceeds during fiscal year 2023.

Share Repurchases

In November 2022, our Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program for up to an aggregate amount of $100.0 million of our outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock over an 18-month period in open market, accelerated share repurchase ("ASR") or privately negotiated transactions, each as permitted under applicable rules and regulations, any of which may use pre-arranged trading plans that are designed to meet the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ( the "Exchange Act").

We paid $8.1 million to repurchase 449,432 shares of our Class A Common Stock through open market transactions during the third quarter of fiscal year 2023, which we subsequently retired. On September 5, 2023, we used the remaining availability under the share repurchase program for an ASR and paid approximately $91.9 million to receive an initial delivery of 4,131,551 shares of our Class A Common Stock in accordance with an ASR agreement with a third-party financial institution. The final settlement occurred on January 12, 2024, at which time, we received 534,499 additional shares calculated using a volume-weighted average price over the term of the ASR agreement. We paid a total of $100.0 million for shares repurchases during the year ended December 31, 2023.

New Share Repurchase Program

In October 2023, our Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program, which authorizes us to repurchase up to $100.0 million of our Class A Common Stock over an 18-month period from time to time in open market transactions, ASR or in privately negotiated transactions, each as permitted under applicable rules and regulations. Repurchases may be conducted and may be suspended or terminated at any time without notice. The extent to which we repurchase shares of our Class A Common Stock and the timing of such purchases will depend upon market conditions, our capital position, and other considerations as may be considered by us. Repurchases may also be made pursuant to a trading plan under Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, which would permit shares to be repurchased when we might otherwise be precluded from doing so because of self-imposed trading blackout periods or other regulatory restrictions. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. The repurchase program will be executed consistent with our capital allocation strategy, which will continue to prioritize investments to grow the business.

Legal Proceedings

On November 2, 2020, PlusPass, Inc. ("PlusPass") commenced an action in the United States District Court, Central District of California, against Verra Mobility, The Gores Group LLC, Platinum Equity LLC, and ATS Processing Services, Inc., alleging civil violations of Section 7 of the Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914 and Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act. In February 2024, we entered into a confidential business arrangement to acquire certain assets from PlusPass and fully and finally resolve all litigation and disputes between the parties. We accrued $31.5 million for this matter at December 31, 2023, which is presented within selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements which address our expected future business and financial performance, and may contain words such as "goal," "target," "future," "estimate," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "project," "may," "should," "will" or similar expressions. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding the changes and trends in the market for our products and services, expected operating results, such as revenue growth, expansion plans and opportunities, and earnings guidance related to 2024 financial and operational metrics. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and a number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated. These factors include, but are not limited to, economic and geopolitical conditions; customer concentration, demand and spending; new and emerging technologies; cybersecurity risks; our ability to manage our substantial level of indebtedness; risks and uncertainties related to our government contracts, including legislative changes, termination rights, delays in payments, audits and investigations; legislative changes; our reliance on a limited number of third-party vendors and service providers; and other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in documents we filed or will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). In addition, no assurance can be given that any plan, initiative, projection, goal, commitment, expectation, or prospect set forth in this release can or will be achieved. This press release should be read in conjunction with the information included in our other press releases, reports and other filings with the SEC. Understanding the information contained in these filings is important in order to fully understand our reported financial results and our business outlook for future periods.

Additional Information

We periodically provide information for investors on our corporate website, www.verramobility.com, and our investor relations website, ir.verramobility.com.

We intend to use our website as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings and public conference calls and webcasts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we also disclose certain non-GAAP financial information in this press release. These financial measures are not recognized measures under GAAP and are not intended to be, and should not be, considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC rules. These non-GAAP financial measures may be determined or calculated differently by other companies. As a result, they may not be comparable to similarly titled performance measures presented by other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measurements to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measurements have been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations.

We are not providing a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, or Adjusted Free Cash Flow which are included in our 2024 financial guidance above, in reliance on the "unreasonable efforts" exception for forward-looking non-GAAP measures set forth in SEC rules because certain financial information, the probable significance of which cannot be determined, is not available and cannot be reasonably estimated without unreasonable effort and expense. In this regard, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income as well as Adjusted EPS to net income per share, due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Due to the uncertainty of estimates and assumptions used in preparing forward-looking non-GAAP measures, we caution investors that actual results could differ materially from these non-GAAP financial projections.

We use these non-GAAP financial 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, we also believe that these non-GAAP measures provide 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. These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as substitutes for net income, cash flows from operations, earnings per share or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

We define EBITDA as net 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.

Free Cash Flow

We define "Free Cash Flow" as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

We define Adjusted Free Cash Flow as Free Cash Flow which further excludes certain one-time and non-recurring items (for example, the PlusPass legal settlement).

Adjusted Net Income

We define "Adjusted Net Income" as net 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.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue.
