OREANDA-NEWS. Excel Corporation (OTCQB:EXCC), a leading provider of integrated financial and transaction processing services to merchants throughout the United States today reported its consolidated results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016. Due to the acquisition of the US operations of Calpian, Inc. (OTCPK:CLPI) on November 30, 2015, the results of 2016 and 2015 are not comparable.

Second Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Produced gross revenues of $4,446,291
  • Earned net income from continuing operations of $667,109
  • Generated positive EBITDA of $1,053,028  

“Following a relatively strong first quarter, we delivered an even stronger performance in the second quarter, nearly doubling our net operating income when compared to our results in the first quarter of 2016. The positive impact and improved financial results from our restructuring in April speak for themselves,” stated T. A. “Kip” Hyde, Jr., Excel's CEO. “Our eVance Processing subsidiary is now successfully integrated into the Company. In addition, we expect to complete a new financing facility in the third quarter, which is intended to refinance our current debt, provide additional working capital and provide capital for further acquisitions. On this solid foundation, we also expect to see continued positive cash flow and net income from continuing operations for the balance of 2016.”

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company announced the following results. The table below presents summary financial data; see the Company’s Form 10-Q filed on August 15, 2016 for additional information:

Disclosure of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). However, management believes the presentation of certain non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations, and that when GAAP financial measures are viewed in conjunction with the non-GAAP financial measures, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of the Company’s ongoing operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating performance. For all non-GAAP financial measures in this release, we have provided corresponding GAAP financial measures for comparative purposes in the report.

We refer to the term “EBITDA” in various places of our financial discussion. EBITDA is defined by us as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization expense. EBITDA is not a measure of operating performance under GAAP and therefore should not be considered in isolation nor construed as an alternative to operating profit, net income (loss) or cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Also, EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of liquidity. Moreover, since EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP, and thus is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
