Q3 2014 Financial Results
Revenue in the third quarter of 2014 increased 182% to $856,000 from $304,000 in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by growing adoption of the company’s Select Mobile™ RDC solutions, along with our new product offerings, CheckRisk Pro and Select Mobile Money. The revenue increase also reflects the growth in the company’s total cumulative contract value, which the company defines as the estimated aggregate total revenue potential of product and service contracts signed with more than 300 bank and credit union customers over the trailing 24-month period. At the end of the third quarter of 2014, the company’s cumulative contract value totaled $50.9 million compared to $28.4 million at the end of the same year-ago period, with nearly this entire amount representing recurring revenue versus one-time setup or hosting fees.

Cost of revenues in the third quarter of 2014 totaled $830,000 (97% of revenue) compared to $617,000 (203% of revenue) in the same year-ago period. The increase was primarily due to higher amortization expense associated with the intangible assets acquired with the Select Mobile Money acquisition in March 2014.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2014 totaled $5.2 million or $(0.33) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million or $(0.56) per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.
Adjusted EBITDA loss (a non-GAAP term defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation, as well as other non-recurring items) for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $2.0 million compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.8 million in the same year-ago period (see further discussion about the use of adjusted EBITDA, below).

Management Commentary
“Q3 marked our sixth consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth,” said Jeffrey Mack, president and CEO of Cachet Financial Solutions. “This was driven by a 56% sequential increase in transactions on our award-winning platform, which highlights our growing, highly-valuable recurring revenue stream.

“Our performance during the third quarter also reflected our focus on upselling and cross-selling existing customers, as well as diversifying our revenue base. This generated an 11% sequential increase in the number of products sold, as well as three new major customer wins during the quarter.

“While new customers and our consistent revenue growth demonstrate our ongoing success, we realize they do not fully reflect the shareholder value we’ve been building. So, starting this quarter, we have begun to report the total dollar value of the contracts we’ve signed with our bank and credit union customers over the last two years. This amount has nearly doubled since last year to more than $50 million, with nearly all representing future recurring revenue. It is also important to note that our initial contractual agreements often involve only a portion of our product and service portfolio, so they have the inherent potential for contract expansion to include other offerings and associated transaction growth. Further, our contracts and customer relationships have also been very ‘sticky,’ with virtually no customer attrition since we first begun to roll out our product offerings around the end of 2011. 

“Our success is also reflected in the strong partnerships we have formed, including most recently with the League Service Corporation to power its new CU Money prepaid mobile application. This relationship represents a tremendous opportunity for Cachet as another strong validation of our mobile money management platform. Cachet’s high-value, low-cost solutions allow credit unions like LSC to build relationships and drive sales by providing compelling solutions for their existing prepaid card platforms, and particularly allowing them to better address opportunities in the underserviced and ‘under-banked’ prepaid market.

“Looking ahead into 2015, we will continue to build on our momentum. We remain ideally positioned with industry-leading solutions and a growing customer base to capitalize on the growing industry demand for mobile banking technologies. We believe our operational strength and the acceleration in the number of ‘go-lives’ we are able to complete each quarter will continue to expand our market share and drive strong revenue growth in the quarters ahead.”

Use of Non-GAAP Information
In evaluating the Company’s financial performance and operating trends, management considers information concerning the Company’s net sales, adjusted gross margins, adjusted operating expenses, and adjusted EBITDA, among other items, which are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States of America. The Company’s management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors because they provide supplemental information that facilitates comparisons to prior periods and for the evaluation of financial results.  Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate its financial results, develop budgets and manage expenditures.  The method the Company uses to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP, is likely to differ from the methods used by other companies and should not be regarded as a replacement for corresponding GAAP measures.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this release and can also be found on the Company’s website at
