First Quarter 2013 Results
Revenues. Total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $87.3 million, representing an increase of 6% as compared to $82.5 million in the prior year.
Merchant Acquiring revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $17.5 million, representing a decrease of 1% as compared to $17.7 million in the prior year. The revenue growth comparison in this quarter is impacted by certain effects related to the Durbin Amendment which went into effect in the fourth quarter of 2011. Normalizing for the effects related to the Durbin Amendment, revenues in this segment grew at 8% vs. the prior year.
Payment Processing revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $24.1 million, representing an increase of 5% as compared to $22.9 million in the prior year. Revenue growth was primarily driven by an increase in transactions processed and accounts on file.
Business Solutions revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $45.8 million, representing an increase of 9% as compared to $41.9 million in the prior year. Revenue growth was primarily driven by an increase in demand for our network and core banking products and services.
Adjusted EBITDA. For the quarter ended March 31, 2013 Adjusted EBITDA was $41.8 million, representing an increase of 8% as compared to $38.5 million in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily driven by the aforementioned growth in revenues and significant operating leverage in our business. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues) improved by approximately 110 basis points to 47.8% from 46.7% in the prior year.
Adjusted Net Income. For the quarter ended March 31, 2013 Adjusted Net Income was $27.5 million ($0.36 per diluted share), representing an increase of 37% as compared to $20.1 million ($0.26 per diluted share) in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted Net Income was primarily driven by the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA and lower pro forma cash interest expense as a result of the refinancing described in greater detail below.
Initial Public Offering. On April 17, 2013, EVERTEC successfully completed its initial public offering ("IPO") of 28.8 million shares of common stock at $20.00 per share. The offering included 6.3 million primary shares sold by EVERTEC and 22.5 million secondary shares sold by certain stockholders of the Company. Net proceeds to the Company of approximately $117.4 million from the offering were used to redeem $91.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 11% senior notes due 2018 issued by two of EVERTEC's subsidiaries and pay transaction related fees and expenses.
Debt Refinancing. Concurrent with its IPO, EVERTEC's subsidiary entered into $800.0 million of new senior secured credit facilities comprised of a $100 million revolving credit facility (undrawn at close), $300 million term loan A, and $400 million term loan B. Net proceeds from the loans were used to refinance all of the Company's outstanding indebtedness under its existing senior secured credit facilities and to redeem the portion of the 11% senior notes due 2018 that remained outstanding after the application of net primary IPO proceeds, as described above. Pro forma for the refinancing, EVERTEC will reduce its annual interest expense by approximately 55% or $29.6 million per annum.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This earnings release presents EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per share information. These are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). They are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to total revenues, net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities, as indicators of cash flows or as measures of our liquidity. We present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we consider them important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. In addition, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is consistent with the equivalent measurements that are contained in the Credit Agreement in testing EVERTEC Group's compliance with covenants therein such as the senior secured leverage ratio. We use Adjusted Net Income to measure our overall profitability because it better reflects our cash flow generation by capturing the actual cash taxes paid rather than our tax expense as calculated under GAAP and excludes the impact of the non-cash amortization and depreciation that was created as a result of the Merger. For more information regarding EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per share, including a quantitative reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which is net income, see Schedule 4: Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Operating Results in this earnings release.
