Commenting on the results, Richard McGinn, Interim Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are keenly aware of the significant short-term challenges impacting our fiscal year 2013 financial results. To regain our momentum, we are addressing the critical issues head-on. We have empowered a new senior leadership team. We are substantially increasing our R&D investment to best serve our customers and regain competitiveness in markets where we have product gaps. And, we have increased our focus on cash management, as evidenced by our generation of $79 million of operating cash flow in the second quarter.

"While we are pleased with many aspects of our business, the next twelve months will be devoted to investing heavily in our customers, our products, and our people, to reverse the current trend and reposition ourselves to resume growth. We believe there is significant upside potential for both the payment technology business and our company," concluded McGinn.

Additional Financial and Business Highlights

  • Displaced incumbent competitors at twelve U.S. multi-lane retailers while not losing any large U.S. merchant customers.

  • Won a two-year tender with Sberbank, the largest bank in Russia, to deliver 450K VX systems.

  • Secured significant orders with major customers in Spain and Italy.

  • Announced a new GlobalBay SMB mobile point of sale application for our channel partners.

  • Achieved service revenue record of 35% of total non-GAAP net revenues in Q2.

Guidance

Guidance for the third fiscal quarter of 2013 is as follows:

  • Non-GAAP net revenues of approximately $400 million

  • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share of approximately $0.20

The company expects modest sequential increases in non-GAAP net revenues and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in Q4.
