iPayment Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

iPayment Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the three months, the company reported total revenues increased by 1.4% to $158.1 million from $156.0 million for the first quarter of 2013. This increase was primarily due to higher volume per merchant, partially offset by a lower number of merchants on file during the first quarter of 2014 against the first quarter of 2013. Income from operations decreased 34.4% to $7.1 million compared with $10.9 million a year ago. Income from operations was affected by lower net revenue and lower embezzlement recoveries, net of remediation costs. Net and comprehensive loss of $11.5 million and consolidated EBITDA of $19.8 million compared with a net and comprehensive loss of $3.7 million and consolidated EBITDA of $24.4 million for the first quarter of 2013. Net and comprehensive loss for the first quarter of 2014 was affected by lower income from operations, higher income tax provision (benefit), and higher interest expense, offset by lower other expense. Consolidated EBITDA for the first quarter was affected primarily by lower revenues, net of interchange, lower embezzlement recoveries, and lower proforma credit for acquisitions. Additionally, in the quarter, the company used $0.800 million for capital expenditures.
