EURONET WORLDWIDE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(1) GENERAL
Organization
Euronet Worldwide, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company” or “Euronet”) was established as a Delaware corporation on December 13, 1997 and succeeded Euronet Holding N.V. as the group holding company, which was founded and established in 1994. Euronet is a leading electronic payments provider. Euronet offers payment and transaction processing and distribution solutions to financial institutions, retailers, service providers and individual consumers. Euronet's primary product offerings include comprehensive automated teller machine (“ATM”), point-of-sale (“POS”), card outsourcing, card issuing and merchant acquiring services; electronic distribution of prepaid mobile airtime and other electronic payment products; and global money transfer services.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared from the records of the Company, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“U.S. GAAP”) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In the opinion of management, such unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of normal interim closing procedures) necessary to present fairly on a consolidated basis the financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2014, the results of its operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. The unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2013, including the notes thereto, set forth in the Company’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2014.
Seasonality
Euronet’s EFT Processing segment and epay segment are significantly impacted by seasonality during the fourth quarter and first quarter of each year due to higher transaction levels during the holiday season and lower levels following the holiday season. Additionally, mostly in Europe, the EFT Processing business experiences its heaviest demand for dynamic currency conversion services during the third quarter of the fiscal year, coinciding with the tourist season. Seasonality in the money transfer segment varies by regions of the world. In most markets, Euronet usually experiences increased demand for money transfer services from the month of May through the fourth quarter of each year, coinciding with the increase in worker migration patterns and various holidays, and experiences its lowest transaction levels during the first quarter of each year.

(2) RECENTLY ISSUED AND ADOPTED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently Issued
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASU 2014-09"), which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. ASU 2014-09 will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. The new standard will become effective for the Company on January 1, 2017 and early adoption is not permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. The Company is evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures. The Company has not yet selected a transition method nor has it determined the effect of the standard on its ongoing financial reporting.

7


Recently Adopted
In July 2013, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2013-11, Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists ("ASU 2013-11"). The amendments in ASU 2013-11 provide guidance on the financial statement presentation of an unrecognized tax benefit when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists. The Company adopted ASU 2013-11 as of January 1, 2014, and its adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's results of operations, cash flows or financial position.

(3) STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY

Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share has been computed by dividing earnings available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the respective period. Diluted earnings per share has been computed by dividing earnings available to common stockholders by the weighted average shares outstanding during the respective period, after adjusting for any potential dilution of options to purchase the Company's common stock, assumed vesting of restricted stock and the assumed conversion of the Company’s convertible debentures. The following table provides the computation of diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding:

Three Months Ended
September 30,
 
Nine Months Ended

Basic weighted average shares outstanding
52,512,474

 
50,093,786

 
51,658,823

 
49,829,379

Incremental shares from assumed exercise of stock options and vesting of restricted stock
2,107,319

 
2,025,802

 
2,081,328

Incremental shares from assumed conversion of convertible debentures

 
80,884

 

 
85,991

Diluted weighted average shares outstanding
54,619,793

 
52,200,472

 
53,740,151

 
51,579,644

The table includes the impact of all stock options and restricted stock that are dilutive to the Company’s weighted average common shares outstanding during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013. The calculation of diluted earnings per share excludes stock options or shares of restricted stock that are anti-dilutive to the Company’s weighted average common shares outstanding of approximately 693,000 and 695,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, and approximately 528,000 and 1,029,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company had convertible debentures outstanding that, if converted, would have had a potentially dilutive effect on the Company’s common stock. In September 2013, the Company repurchased at par the remaining $3.6 million of principal amount of the convertible debentures outstanding. As required by Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 260, Earnings per Share, if dilutive, the impact of the contingently issuable common shares must be included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share under the “if-converted” method, regardless of whether the conditions upon which the debentures would be convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock have been met. Under the if-converted method, the dilutive effect of the assumed conversion of the debentures was 80,884 shares and 85,991 shares for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.

Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss

Accumulated other comprehensive loss consists entirely of foreign currency translation adjustments. The Company recorded a foreign currency translation loss of $61.6 million and $54.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, and a foreign currency translation gain of $22.1 million and a loss of $6.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company reclassified $0.3 million of foreign currency translation into the consolidated statements of income. There were no reclassifications of foreign currency translation into the consolidated statements of income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.

(4) ACQUISITIONS
On May 20, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of all of the capital stock of EIM (FX) Limited and TBK (FM) Limited (the "Acquired Companies") pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated March 7, 2014 (the "Purchase Agreement") among the Company and the selling shareholders (the "Sellers"). The Acquired Companies, each a United Kingdom limited company, own subsidiaries that operate under the brand names HiFX and HiFM, respectively.
HiFX offers account-to-account international payment services to high-income individuals and small-to-medium sized businesses, complementing Euronet’s existing consumer-to-consumer money transfer business. HiFX has an innovative multi-channel platform which allows customers to make transfers, track payments and manage their international payment activity online or through a customer service representative. HiFM offers cash management solutions and foreign currency risk management services to small-to-medium sized businesses.
Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Sellers received purchase consideration (the "Purchase Consideration") of £111.8 million in cash ($188.0 million), including working capital adjustments finalized in the third quarter of 2014, and 1,262,654 shares of Euronet common stock, with a fair value at date of acquisition of $56.6 million (the "Consideration Shares"). An amount equal to $16.0 million of the cash portion of the Purchase Consideration and all of the Consideration Shares were placed in escrow at closing as security for the Sellers' indemnification and other obligations under the Purchase Agreement. Any Purchase Consideration remaining in escrow will be released to the Sellers two years following the closing date, net of any pending indemnification or other claims under the Purchase Agreement.
The Purchase Consideration was allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including identifiable intangible assets, based on their respective fair values at the date of acquisition. None of the goodwill or intangible asset amounts are expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. Pro-forma results of operations, assuming this acquisition was made at the beginning of the earliest period presented, have not been presented because the effect of this acquisition was not material to our results. The net assets of the Acquired Companies and their results from operations are included in the Money Transfer Segment's results.
During the third quarter of 2014, the Company adjusted the purchase price allocation of the Acquired Companies and expects to finalize the allocation by the end of 2014. Changes from our preliminary estimates as of June 30, 2014 were not material to our consolidated financial statements. The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date.

Estimated amortization expense on intangible assets with finite lives, before income taxes, as of September 30, 2014, is expected to total $6.9 million for the remainder of 2014, $22.7 million for 2015, $21.1 million for 2016, $18.9 million for 2017, $16.5 million for 2018 and $15.7 million for 2019.
The Company’s annual goodwill impairment test is performed during the fourth quarter of its fiscal year. The annual impairment test for the year ended December 31, 2013 resulted in the Company recording a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $18.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2013 with respect to certain reporting units included in the Company's epay segment.
Determining the fair value of reporting units requires significant management judgment in estimating future cash flows and assessing potential market and economic conditions. It is reasonably possible that the Company’s operations will not perform as expected, or that the estimates or assumptions included in the 2013 annual impairment test could change, which may result in the Company recording additional material non-cash impairment charges during the year in which these changes take place.

Credit Facility
As of September 30, 2014, the Company had a $675 million senior secured credit facility (the "Credit Facility") consisting of a $600 million revolving credit facility and a $75 million term loan ("Term Loan A"), which had been reduced to $73.1 million through principal amortization payments.
On April 9, 2014, the Company amended and restated the Credit Agreement to, among other things, (i) increase the amount of Term Loan A from $66 million to $75 million, (ii) increase the aggregate credit commitments under the revolving credit facility from $400 million to $600 million, (iii) reduce the margin over the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) rate and base rate by 12.5 basis points, and (iv) extend the expiration date of the Credit Agreement from August 18, 2016 to April 9, 2019. In connection with the amendment, the Company incurred $2.5 million in debt issuance costs, which are being amortized over the term of the Credit Facility.
Interest on borrowings under the revolving credit facility and Term Loan A varies based upon the Company's consolidated total leverage ratio, as defined in the Company's Credit Agreement, and during the third quarter of 2014 was based on a margin over LIBOR or a margin over a base rate, as selected by the Company, with the applicable margin ranging from 1.375% to 2.375% for LIBOR loans or 0.375% to 1.375% for base rate loans. Accordingly, the weighted average interest rate for borrowings outstanding under the Company's revolving credit facility and Term Loan A was 1.96% and 1.78%, respectively, as of September 30, 2014, excluding amortization of deferred financing costs.
(8) DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES
The Company is exposed to foreign currency exchange risk resulting from (i) the collection of funds or the settlement of money transfer transactions in currencies other than the U.S. Dollar, (ii) derivative contracts written to its customers in connection with providing cross-currency money transfer services and (iii) short-term borrowings that are payable in currencies other than the U.S dollar. The Company enters into foreign currency derivative contracts, primarily foreign currency forwards and cross-currency swaps, to minimize its exposure related to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. As a matter of Company policy, the derivative instruments used in these activities are economic hedges and are not designated as hedges under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, primarily due to either the relatively short duration of the contract term or the effects of fluctuations in currency exchange rates are reflected concurrently in earnings for both the derivative instrument and the transaction and have an offsetting effect.
Foreign currency exchange contracts - Ria Operations
In the United States, the Company uses short-duration foreign currency forward contracts, generally with maturities up to 14 days, to offset the fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates on the collection of money transfer funds between initiation of a transaction and its settlement. Due to the short duration of these contracts and the Company’s credit profile, the Company is generally not required to post collateral with respect to these foreign currency forward contracts. Most derivative contracts executed with counterparties in the U.S. are governed by an International Swaps and Derivatives Association agreement that includes standard netting arrangements; therefore, asset and liability positions from forward contracts and all other foreign exchange transactions with the same counterparty are net settled upon maturity.
As of September 30, 2014, the Company had foreign currency forward contracts outstanding in the U.S. with a notional value of $97 million, primarily in Australian dollars, Canadian dollars, British pounds, euros and Mexican pesos.

Foreign currency exchange contracts - HiFX Operations
As discussed in Note 4, Acquisitions, on May 20, 2014, the Company acquired EIM (FX) Limited, which owns subsidiaries that operate under the brand name HiFX. HiFX writes derivative instruments, primarily foreign currency forward contracts and cross-currency swaps, mostly with counterparties comprised of individuals and small-to-medium size businesses and derives a currency margin from this activity as part of its operations. HiFX aggregates its foreign currency exposures arising from customer contracts and hedges the resulting net currency risks by entering into offsetting contracts with established financial institution counterparties. Foreign exchange revenues from HiFX's total portfolio of positions were $15.9 million and $23.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively. All of the derivative contracts used in the Company' s HiFX operations are economic hedges and are not designated as hedges under ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging. The duration of these derivative contracts is generally less than one year.
The fair value of HiFX's total portfolio of positions can change significantly from period to period based on, among other factors, market movements and changes in customer contract positions. HiFX manages counterparty credit risk (the risk that counterparties will default and not make payments according to the terms of the agreements) on an individual counterparty basis. It mitigates this risk by entering into contracts with collateral posting requirements and/or by performing financial assessments prior to contract execution, conducting periodic evaluations of counterparty performance and maintaining a diverse portfolio of qualified counterparties. HiFX does not expect any significant losses from counterparty defaults.
The aggregate equivalent U.S. dollar notional amounts of foreign currency derivative customer contracts held by the Company in its HiFX operations as of September 30, 2014 was approximately $831 million. The significant majority of customer contracts are written in major currencies such as the euro, Canadian dollar, British pound, and Australian dollar.

(9) FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Fair value measurements used in the consolidated financial statements are based upon the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between (1) market participant assumptions developed based on market data obtained from independent sources (observable inputs) and (2) an entity’s own assumptions about market participant assumptions developed based on the best information available in the circumstances (unobservable inputs). The fair value hierarchy consists of three broad levels, which gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
Level 1 – Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. 
Level 2 – Valuations based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs in which little or no market activity exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions about the inputs that market participants would use in pricing.
The following table details financial assets and liabilities measured and recorded at fair value on a recurring basis:

Other Fair Value Disclosures
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, trade accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current obligations approximate their fair values because of the relatively short-term maturities of these financial instruments. The carrying values of the Company’s long-term debt, including the current portion, approximate fair value because interest is primarily based on LIBOR, which resets at various intervals of less than one year.

(11) INCOME TAXES
The Company's effective income tax rates were 26.9% and 18.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and 27.7% and 22.3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The Company's effective income tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 were lower than the applicable statutory income tax rate of 35% primarily because of the Company's U.S. income tax positions. The Company does not have a history of significant taxable income in the U.S.; therefore, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance against its U.S. federal tax net operating loss carryforwards. Accordingly, in instances when the Company's U.S. legal entities generate pre-tax U.S. GAAP income, no income tax expense is recognized to the extent there are net operating loss carryforwards to offset pre-tax U.S. GAAP income. The Company’s effective income tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 were lower than the applicable statutory income tax rate of 35% primarily because of the Company’s U.S. income tax positions and the recognition of nontaxable gains from the change in fair value of an acquisition-related contingent consideration liability and the sale of an equity method investment.
(12) COMMITMENTS
As of September 30, 2014, the Company had $92.6 million of stand-by letters of credit/bank guarantees issued on its behalf, of which $49.9 million are outstanding under the revolving credit facility. The remaining stand-by letters of credit/bank guarantees are collateralized by $4.3 million of cash deposits held by the respective issuing banks.
Under certain circumstances, Euronet grants guarantees in support of obligations of subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2014, the Company had granted off balance sheet guarantees for cash in various ATM networks amounting to $15.5 million over the terms of the cash supply agreements and performance guarantees amounting to approximately $29.9 million over the terms of agreements with the customers.
Once each of Euronet's subsidiaries reaches a certain size, it is required under the Credit Agreement to provide a guarantee of all or a portion of the outstanding obligations under the Credit Agreement depending upon whether the subsidiary is a domestic or foreign entity.
From time to time, the Company enters into agreements with commercial counterparties that contain indemnification provisions, the terms of which may vary depending on the negotiated terms of each respective agreement. The amount of such potential obligations is generally not stated in the agreements. Euronet's liability under such indemnification provisions may be mitigated by relevant insurance coverage and may be subject to time and materiality limitations, monetary caps and other conditions and defenses. Such indemnification obligations include the following:
In connection with contracts with financial institutions in the EFT Processing Segment, the Company is responsible for damage to ATMs and theft of ATM network cash that is not recorded on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. As of September 30, 2014, the balance of ATM network cash for which the Company was responsible was approximately $433 million. The Company maintains insurance policies to mitigate this exposure;
In connection with contracts with financial institutions in the EFT Processing Segment, the Company is responsible for losses suffered by its customers and other parties as a result of the breach of its computer systems, including in particular, losses arising from fraudulent transactions made using information stolen through its processing systems. The Company maintains insurance policies to mitigate this exposure;
In connection with the license of proprietary systems to customers, the Company provides certain warranties and infringement indemnities to the licensee, which generally warrant that such systems do not infringe on intellectual property owned by third parties and that the systems will perform in accordance with their specifications;

17


Euronet has entered into purchase and service agreements with vendors and consulting agreements with providers of consulting services, pursuant to which the Company has agreed to indemnify certain of such vendors and consultants, respectively, against third-party claims arising from the Company’s use of the vendor’s product or the services of the vendor or consultant;
In connection with acquisitions and dispositions of subsidiaries, operating units and business assets, the Company has entered into agreements containing indemnification provisions, which can be generally described as follows: (i) in connection with acquisitions of operating units or assets made by Euronet, the Company has agreed to indemnify the seller against third-party claims made against the seller relating to the operating unit or asset and arising after the closing of the transaction, and (ii) in connection with dispositions made by Euronet, Euronet has agreed to indemnify the buyer against damages incurred by the buyer due to the buyer’s reliance on representations and warranties relating to the subject subsidiary, operating unit or business assets in the disposition agreement if such representations or warranties were untrue when made; and
Euronet has entered into agreements with certain third parties, including banks that provide fiduciary and other services to Euronet or to the Company’s benefit plans. Under such agreements, the Company has agreed to indemnify such service providers for third-party claims relating to carrying out their respective duties under such agreements.
The Company is also required to meet minimum capitalization and cash requirements of various regulatory authorities in the jurisdictions in which the Company has money transfer operations. The Company has obtained surety bonds in compliance with money transfer licensing requirements of the applicable governmental authorities.
To date, the Company is not aware of any significant claims made by the indemnified parties or third parties to guarantee agreements with the Company and, accordingly, no liabilities were recorded as of September 30, 2014 or December 31, 2013.

(13) LITIGATION AND CONTINGENCIES

Contingencies
Unclaimed property compliance - In September 2013, the Company entered into a voluntary disclosure agreement with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to determine compliance with Delaware unclaimed property laws. Types of property under examination include, but are not limited to, payroll checks, accounts payable checks and accounts receivable credits for the period 1996 through 2007. The total amount of exposure of this contingency is dependent upon the manner in which the State of Delaware applies its unclaimed property laws. The Company does not currently expect the outcome of this matter to have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial condition or results of operations.
Legal Proceedings
From time to time, the Company is a party to legal or regulatory proceedings arising in the ordinary course of its business. Currently, there are no legal proceeding or regulatory findings that management believes, either individually or in the aggregate, would have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial condition or results of operations. In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company records a liability when it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. These provisions are reviewed at least quarterly and adjusted to reflect the impacts of negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel, and other information and events pertaining to a particular case.

OVERVIEW
COMPANY OVERVIEW, GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS AND PRINCIPAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
We are a leading electronic payments provider. We offer payment and transaction processing and distribution solutions to financial institutions, retailers, service providers and individual consumers. Our primary product offerings include comprehensive automated teller machine (“ATM”), point-of-sale (“POS”) and card outsourcing services, card issuing and merchant acquiring services; electronic distribution of prepaid mobile airtime and other electronic payment products; and global money transfer services. We operate in the following three segments:
The EFT Processing Segment, which processes transactions for a network of 19,808 ATMs and approximately 72,000 POS terminals across Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. We provide comprehensive electronic payment solutions consisting of ATM cash withdrawal services, ATM network participation, outsourced ATM and POS management solutions, credit and debit card outsourcing, dynamic currency conversion, and other value added services. Through this segment, we also offer a suite of integrated electronic financial transaction software solutions for electronic payment and transaction delivery systems.
The epay Segment, which provides distribution, processing and collection services for prepaid mobile airtime and other electronic payment products. We operate a network of approximately 667,000 POS terminals providing electronic processing of prepaid mobile airtime top-up services and other electronic payment products in Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, the United States and South America. We also provide vouchers and physical gift fulfillment services in Europe.
The Money Transfer Segment, which provides global consumer-to-consumer money transfer services, primarily under the brand name Ria and global account-to-account money transfer services under the brand name HiFX. We offer services under Ria, through a network of sending agents, Company-owned stores (primarily in North America and Europe) and via the Company's website (riamoneytransfer.com), disbursing money transfers through a worldwide correspondent network that includes approximately 241,000 locations. We offer services under HiFX via the Company's website (www.hifx.com) or by contacting a HiFX customer service representative. In addition to money transfers, we also offer customers bill payment services (primarily in the U.S.), payment alternatives such as money orders and prepaid debit cards, comprehensive check cashing services for a wide variety of issued checks, along with competitive foreign currency exchange services and mobile top-up. Under our HiFM brand, we offer cash management solutions and foreign currency risk management services to small-to-medium sized businesses.
We have five processing centers in Europe, four in Asia Pacific and two in North America. We have 31 principal offices in Europe, 11 in Asia Pacific, six in North America, three in the Middle East, two in South America and one in Africa. Our executive offices are located in Leawood, Kansas, USA. With approximately 75% of our revenues denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, any significant changes in foreign currency exchange rates will likely have a significant impact on our results of operations.

SOURCES OF REVENUES AND CASH FLOW
Euronet primarily earns revenues and income based on ATM management fees, transaction fees, commissions and foreign currency exchange margin. Each operating segment’s sources of revenues are described below.
EFT Processing Segment — Revenues in the EFT Processing Segment, which represented 24% and 22% of our total consolidated revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014, respectively, are primarily derived from fees charged for transactions made by cardholders on our proprietary network of ATMs, fixed management fees and transaction fees we charge to customers for operating ATMs and processing debit and credit cards under outsourcing and cross-border acquiring agreements, foreign currency exchange margin on dynamic currency conversion transactions, and other value added services such as advertising, prepaid telecommunication recharges, bill payment, and money transfers provided over ATMs. Revenues in this segment are also derived from license fees, professional services and maintenance fees for proprietary application software and sales of related hardware.

20


epay Segment — Revenues in the epay Segment, which represented 43% and 47% of our total consolidated revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014, respectively, are primarily derived from commissions or processing fees received from mobile phone operators for the processing and distribution of prepaid mobile airtime and commissions earned from the distribution of other electronic payment products, vouchers, and physical gifts. Due to certain provisions in our mobile phone operator agreements, the operators have the ability to reduce the overall commission paid on top-up transactions. However, by virtue of our agreements with retailers (distributors where POS terminals are located) in certain markets, not all of these reductions are absorbed by us because we are able to pass a significant portion of the reductions to retailers. Accordingly, under certain retailer agreements, the effect is to reduce revenues and reduce our direct operating costs, resulting in only a small impact on gross profit and operating income. In some markets, reductions in commissions can significantly impact our results as it may not be possible, either contractually or commercially in the concerned market, to pass a reduction in commissions to the retailers. In certain markets, retailers may negotiate directly with the mobile phone operators and prepaid content providers for their own commission rates, which also limits our ability to pass through reductions in commissions. Agreements with mobile operators and prepaid content providers are important to the success of our business. These agreements permit us to distribute prepaid mobile airtime and other electronic payment products to the end consumer. Other electronic payment products offered by this segment include prepaid long distance calling card plans, prepaid Internet plans, prepaid debit cards, gift cards, vouchers, transport payments, lottery payments, bill payment, money transfer and digital content such as music, games and software.
Money Transfer Segment — Revenues in the Money Transfer Segment, which represented 33% and 31% of our total consolidated revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014, respectively, are primarily derived from transaction fees, as well as the margin earned from purchasing foreign currency at wholesale exchange rates and selling the foreign currency to customers at retail exchange rates. We have a sending network in place comprised of agents, customer service representatives, Company-owned stores, primarily in North America and Europe, and our websites riamoneytransfer.com and www.hifx.com, along with a worldwide network of correspondent agents, consisting primarily of financial institutions in the transfer destination countries. Sending and correspondent agents each earn fees for cash collection and distribution services, which are recognized as direct operating costs at the time of sale.
Corporate Services, Eliminations and Other - In addition to operating in our principal operating segments described above, our “Corporate Services, Eliminations and Other” category includes non-operating activity, certain inter-segment eliminations and the cost of providing corporate and other administrative services to the operating segments, including most share-based compensation expense. These services are not directly identifiable with our reportable operating segments.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES
Our expansion plans and opportunities are currently focused on eight primary areas:
increasing the number of ATMs in our independent ATM networks;
increasing transactions processed on our network of owned and operated ATMs and POS devices;
signing new outsourced ATM and POS terminal management contracts;
expanding value added services in our EFT Processing Segment, including the sale of dynamic currency conversion services to banks and retailers;
expanding our epay processing network and portfolio of electronic payment products;
expanding our money transfer services, cross-currency payment products and bill payment network;
expanding our cash management solutions and foreign currency risk management services; and
developing our credit and debit card outsourcing business.
EFT Processing Segment — The continued expansion and development of our EFT Processing Segment business will depend on various factors including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:
the impact of competition by banks and other ATM operators and service providers in our current target markets;
the demand for our ATM outsourcing services in our current target markets;
our ability to develop products or services, including value added services, to drive increases in transactions and revenues;
the expansion of our various business lines in markets where we operate and in new markets;
our entry into additional card acceptance and ATM management agreements with banks;

21


our ability to obtain required licenses in markets we intend to enter or expand services;
our ability to enter into and renew ATM network cash supply agreements with financial institutions;
the availability of financing for expansion;
our ability to efficiently install ATMs contracted under newly awarded outsourcing agreements;
our ability to renew existing contracts at profitable rates;
our ability to maintain pricing at current levels or mitigate price reductions in certain markets;
the impact of reductions in ATM interchange fees;
our ability to expand and sign additional customers for the cross-border merchant processing and acquiring business; and
the continued development and implementation of our software products and their ability to interact with other leading products.

We consistently evaluate and add prospects to our list of potential ATM outsourcing customers. However, we cannot predict any increase or decrease in the number of ATMs we manage under outsourcing agreements because this depends largely on the willingness of banks to enter into outsourcing contracts with us. Due to the thorough internal reviews and extensive negotiations conducted by existing and prospective banking customers in choosing outsource vendors, the process of entering into or renewing outsourcing agreements can take several months. The process is further complicated by legal and regulatory considerations in local countries. These agreements tend to cover large numbers of ATMs, so significant increases and decreases in our pool of managed ATMs could result from the acquisition or termination of one or more of these management contracts. Therefore, the timing of both current and new contract revenues is uncertain and unpredictable.

Software products are an integral part of our product lines, and our investment in research, development, delivery and customer support reflects our ongoing commitment to an expanded customer base.
epay Segment — The continued expansion and development of our epay Segment business will depend on various factors, including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:
our ability to maintain and renew existing agreements, and to negotiate new agreements in additional markets with mobile phone operators, content providers, agent financial institutions and retailers;
our ability to use existing expertise and relationships with mobile operators, content providers and retailers to our advantage;
the continued use of third-party providers such as ourselves to supply electronic processing solutions for existing and additional content;
the development of mobile phone networks in the markets in which we do business and the increase in the number of mobile phone users;
the overall pace of growth in the prepaid mobile phone market, including consumer shifts between prepaid and postpaid services;
our market share of the retail distribution capacity;
the development of new technologies that may compete with POS distribution of prepaid mobile airtime and other products;
the level of commission that is paid to the various intermediaries in the electronic payment distribution chain;
our ability to fully recover monies collected by retailers;
our ability to add new and differentiated products in addition to those offered by mobile operators;
our ability to develop and effectively market additional value added services;
our ability to take advantage of cross-selling opportunities with our Money Transfer Segment, including providing money transfer services through our distribution network; and
the availability of financing for further expansion.


22


In all of the markets in which we operate, we are experiencing significant competition which will impact the rate at which we may be able to grow organically. Competition among prepaid mobile airtime distributors results in the increase of commissions paid to retailers and increases in retailer attrition rates. To grow, we must capture market share from other prepaid mobile airtime distributors, offer a superior product offering and demonstrate the value of a global network. In certain markets in which we operate, we believe that many of the factors that may contribute to rapid growth (growth in electronic payment products, expansion of our network of retailers and access to all mobile operators' products) remain present.
Money Transfer Segment — The continued expansion and development of our Money Transfer Segment business will depend on various factors, including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:
the continued growth in worker migration and employment opportunities;
the mitigation of economic and political factors that have had an adverse impact on money transfer volumes, such as changes in the economic sectors in which immigrants work and the developments in immigration policies in the U.S.;
the continuation of the trend of increased use of electronic money transfer and bill payment services among immigrant workers and the unbanked population in our markets;
our ability to maintain our agent and correspondent networks;
our ability to offer our products and services or develop new products and services at competitive prices to drive increases in transactions;
the development of new technologies that may compete with our money transfer network;
the expansion of our services in markets where we operate and in new markets;
our ability to strengthen our brands;
our ability to fund working capital requirements;
our ability to recover from agents funds collected from customers and our ability to recover advances made to correspondents;
our ability to maintain compliance with the regulatory requirements of the jurisdictions in which we operate or plan to operate;
our ability to take advantage of cross-selling opportunities with our epay Segment, including providing prepaid services through Ria’s stores and agents worldwide;
our ability to leverage our banking and merchant/retailer relationships to expand money transfer corridors to Europe, Asia and Africa, including high growth corridors to Central and Eastern European countries;
the availability of financing for further expansion; and
our ability to successfully expand our agent network in Europe using our payment institution licenses under the Payment Services Directive and in the United States.

For all segments, our continued expansion may involve additional acquisitions that could divert our resources and management time and require integration of new assets with our existing networks and services. Our ability to effectively manage our growth has required us to expand our operating systems and employee base, particularly at the management level, which has added incremental operating costs. Any inability to continue to effectively manage expansion could have a material adverse effect on our business, growth, financial condition and results of operations. Inadequate technology and resources would impair our ability to maintain current processing technology and efficiencies, as well as deliver new and innovative services to compete in the marketplace.

Impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates
Our revenues and local expenses are recorded in the functional currencies of our operating entities; therefore, amounts we earn outside the U.S. are negatively impacted by the stronger U.S. dollar and positively impacted by the weaker U.S. dollar. Despite the strengthening of the U.S. dollar towards the end of the third quarter of 2014, on average, the U.S. dollar was weaker in the reported 2014 periods than the same 2013 periods compared to currencies of several key markets in which we operate. Considering the results by country and the associated functional currency, we estimate that our consolidated operating income for the third quarter of 2014 was not significantly influenced by the changes in foreign currency exchange rates when compared to the same period of 2013. We estimate that our consolidated operating income for the first nine months of 2014 was approximately 2% higher when compared to the same periods of 2013 as a result of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Revenues
Our revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014 increased when compared to the same periods of 2013, primarily due to an increase in the number of ATMs under management, an increase in demand for dynamic currency conversion ("DCC") on both our ATMs and POS devices under management, growth in revenues from debit and credit card outsourcing services in Greece and the net impact of the U.S. dollar weakening against key foreign currencies. Also contributing to the increase in revenues for the first nine months of 2014 compared to the same period of 2013 was an increase in the number of transactions processed in Poland during the first nine months of 2014.
Average monthly revenues per ATM were $1,830 for the third quarter and $1,589 for the first nine months of 2014 compared to $1,584 for the third quarter and $1,378 for the first nine of 2013. Revenues per transaction were $0.33 for the third quarter and $0.29 for the first nine months of 2014 compared to $0.27 for the third quarter and $0.25 for the first nine months of 2013. These increases were primarily the result of revenue growth from DCC on our ATMs under management, which earns higher revenues per transaction than other ATM or card based services, and the net impact of the U.S. dollar weakening against key foreign currencies.
Direct operating costs
Direct operating costs consist primarily of site rental fees, cash delivery costs, cash supply costs, maintenance, insurance, telecommunications, data center operations-related personnel, as well as the processing centers’ facility-related costs and other processing center-related expenses and commissions paid to retail merchants, banks and card processors involved with POS DCC transactions. Direct operating costs increased for the third quarter and first nine months of 2014 compared to the same periods of 2013, primarily due to an increase in the number of ATMs under management, an
