REMARKS BY SHMUEL JONAS, CEO

“Our three primary high-growth, high-margin businesses delivered strong revenue growth in the first quarter, while the businesses in our Traditional Communications segment performed as expected.

In the first quarter, the ongoing growth of BOSS Money, NRS, and net2phone drove a 370 basis point year-over-year increase in gross profit margin and record gross profit. They are steadily becoming more significant contributors to our top and bottom lines, while the cash generation of our paid-minute businesses has been relatively resilient.

“BOSS Money continued to grow at a rapid clip, helped by the accelerating expansion of our retail money transfer channel. Retail money transfer channel revenue increased by 55% year-over-year, while digital channel revenue – for transactions initiated on the BOSS Money and BOSS Revolution Calling apps – increased 31% year-over-year. We continue to improve the user experience for both retailer agents and digital customers, and we see that investment paying off in BOSS Money’s robust topline growth. Much of the investment we’ve made in money transfer to date is in the expectation that we are only in the early innings of our money transfer growth. As we continue to expand, we expect to capture more of the benefit of our growth in our bottom line profitability.

“NRS continued to expand its network and upgrade existing accounts, helping to drive strong increases in Merchant Services and SaaS Fee revenues, while Advertising & Data revenue increased sequentially propelled by seasonal tailwinds and the gradual recovery of advertising demand in the digital out-of-home advertising space – a trend which has accelerated since the quarter close. NRS’ income from operations was a record $5.5 million in the first quarter. We’re now in the process of introducing some of the new POS formats that I’ve mentioned previously, and I’m excited about their potential to help us drive long-term expansion.

“net2phone delivered steady sequential customer base and topline growth, while its unit economics are strengthening as the business scales and our higher ARPU, higher margin, CCaaS offerings gradually become a more significant part of the business. net2phone generated positive Adjusted EBITDA of $1.4 million and was near cash-flow positive. Now in the second quarter, our Beta rollout of net2phone AI is underway, and it has been very well received by customers. We are very optimistic that net2phone AI and net2phone’s forthcoming premium plans will help to drive meaningful ARPU and margin expansion.

“We’re working very hard to innovate exciting new offerings, features and functionalities– and not just in our growth businesses. At BOSS Revolution Calling, we’ve redesigned the look and feel of our popular calling app and added a bunch of new products and features. We have also introduced advertising placements into the app, and we have already begun to generate some nice revenue from it as a result. We also continue to focus on streamlining overhead and wringing significant costs out of our operations — especially in our Traditional Communications segment. This effort will help preserve the cash generation of our paid-minute businesses despite their continued, expected topline declines in the quarters ahead. It also will allow us to continue investing in innovative new products and promising initiatives in our existing growth businesses.

“We also returned value directly to our stockholders in the first quarter, repurchasing 125,470 shares of our Class B common stock for $2.8 million. Going forward, we will continue to purchase shares opportunistically.

“We are very well positioned as we head into the second quarter of our fiscal year 2024. To wrap up, I want to wish our employees, stockholders and their families a very joyous holiday season, and to thank each of you for everything you do for the IDT family.”

  • The strong sequential increase in monthly average recurring revenue per terminal was driven primarily by the sequential increase in Advertising and Data revenue, which benefitted from seasonal tailwinds and strengthening digital out-of-home advertising demand.

net2phone

During 1Q24 and 1Q23, the net2phone segment contributed 6.6% and 5.3% of IDT’s consolidated revenue, respectively.

Take-Aways:

  • net2phone’s year-over-year increase in seats served was powered by continued expansion in key markets led by the U.S., Brazil, and Mexico.
  • In 1Q24, subscription revenue increased 19% year-over-year driven by the 18% increase in seats served augmented by an increase in average revenue per seat served.
  • CCaaS seats served increased 31% year-over-year to approximately 10,000.

Fintech

During 1Q24 and 1Q23, the Fintech segment contributed 8.8% and 6.2% of IDT’s consolidated revenue, respectively.

Take-Aways:

  • The 41% year-over-year increase in BOSS Money transactions included a 54% increase in retail transactions driven by expansion of the BOSS Money retail agent network and enhancements to the retailer portal. Digital transactions increased 38% compared to the year-ago quarter.
  • BOSS Money revenue increased 38% driven primarily by cross-marketing within the larger BOSS ecosystem and expansion of the retail agent network.

Traditional Communications

During 1Q24 and 1Q23, the Traditional Communications segment contributed 76.6% and 82.5% of IDT’s consolidated revenue, respectively.

Income from operations   $ 15.4     $ 14.1     $ 12.9     $ 17.0     $ 17.3       (11 )%
Adjusted EBITDA   $ 18.1     $ 18.6     $ 19.7     $ 19.6     $ 19.7       (8 )%

Take-Aways:

  • As in recent prior quarters, the year-over-year decrease in IDT Digital Payments’ revenue was due to the deterioration of a key international mobile top-up corridor. By 1Q24, however, that corridor was no longer a significant factor, helping to stabilize revenue sequentially.
  • Income from operations increased sequentially for the second consecutive quarter, helped by strong contributions from BOSS Revolution Calling and IDT Global. Nevertheless, the industry-wide decline in the paid-minute calling markets will continue to impact revenues and cash flows for this segment in the coming quarters.

OTHER FINANCIAL STATEMENTS HIGHLIGHTS

Consolidated results for all periods presented include corporate overhead. Corporate G&A expense increased to $2.8 million in 1Q24 from $1.9 million in 1Q23 reflecting an increase in audit and accounting fees and higher employee compensation expense.

As of October 31, 2023, IDT held $159.7 million in cash, cash equivalents, debt securities, and current equity investments. Current assets totaled $382.2 million and current liabilities totaled $275.9 million. IDT had no outstanding debt at the fiscal quarter’s end.

Net cash provided by operating activities during 1Q24 was $14.8 million – a decrease from $18.2 million during 1Q23. Exclusive of changes in customer deposit balances at IDT’s Gibraltar-based bank, net cash provided by operating activities increased to $17.1 million from $15.3 million during 1Q23. This increase was primarily due to the timing of operating cash receipts and payments.

Capital expenditures decreased to $4.3 million in 1Q24 from $5.2 million in 1Q23.

***Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the
First Quarter Fiscal 2024 and 2023

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), IDT also disclosed for 1Q24, 4Q23, 3Q23, 2Q23, and 1Q23, Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS), both of which are non-GAAP measures.

Generally, a non-GAAP measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

IDT’s measure of non-GAAP EPS is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by the diluted weighted-average shares. IDT’s measure of non-GAAP net income starts with net income attributable to IDT in accordance with GAAP and adds severance expense, stock-based compensation, and other operating expense, and deducts other operating gains. These additions and subtractions are non-cash and/or non-routine items in the relevant fiscal 2024 and fiscal 2023 periods.

Management believes that IDT’s Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS are measures which provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses and non-routine gains and losses that may not be indicative of IDT’s or the relevant segment’s core operating results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, as a relevant indicator of core operational strengths in its financial and operational decision making. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS to evaluate operating performance in relation to IDT’s competitors. Disclosure of these financial measures may be useful to investors in evaluating performance and allows for greater transparency to the underlying supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, IDT has historically reported similar financial measures and believes such measures are commonly used by readers of financial information in assessing performance, therefore the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in financial reporting.

Management refers to Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the GAAP measures income (loss) from operations and net income, on a segment and/or consolidated level to facilitate internal and external comparisons to the segments’ and IDT’s historical operating results, in making operating decisions, for budget and planning purposes, and to form the basis upon which management is compensated.

While depreciation and amortization are considered operating costs under GAAP, these expenses primarily represent the non-cash current period allocation of costs associated with long-lived assets acquired or capitalized in prior periods. IDT’s Adjusted EBITDA, which is exclusive of depreciation and amortization, is a useful indicator of its current performance.

Severance expense is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS. Severance expense is reflective of decisions made by management in each period regarding the aspects of IDT’s and its segments’ businesses to be focused on in light of changing market realities and other factors. While there may be similar charges in other periods, the nature and magnitude of these charges can fluctuate markedly and do not reflect the performance of IDT’s core and continuing operations.

Other operating gain (expense), net, which is a component of income (loss) from operations, is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS. Other operating gain (expense), net includes, among other items, gain from the write-off of contingent consideration liabilities, legal fees net of insurance claims related to Straight Path Communications Inc.’s stockholders’ class action, gain from the sale of state income tax credits, and fixed asset write-offs. From time-to-time, IDT may have gains or incur costs related to non-routine legal, tax, and other matters, however, these various items generally do not occur each quarter. IDT believes the gain and losses from these non-routine matters are not components of IDT’s or the relevant segment’s core operating results.

Stock-based compensation recognized by IDT and other companies may not be comparable because of the variety of types of awards as well as the various valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions that are permitted under GAAP. Stock-based compensation is excluded from IDT’s calculation of non-GAAP EPS because management believes this allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons of the operating results per share of IDT’s core business with the results of other companies. However, stock-based compensation will continue to be a significant expense for IDT for the foreseeable future and an important part of employees’ compensation that impacts their performance.

Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, income (loss) from operations, cash flow from operating activities, net income, basic and diluted earnings per share or other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, IDT’s measurements of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Following are reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which are, (a) for Adjusted EBITDA, income (loss) from operations for IDT’s reportable segments and net income for IDT on a consolidated basis, and (b) for non-GAAP EPS, diluted earnings per share.

*Explanation of Key Performance Metrics

NRS’ recurring revenue is NRS’ revenue in accordance with GAAP excluding revenue from POS terminal sales. NRS’ Monthly Average Recurring Revenue per Terminal is a financial metric. Monthly Average Recurring Revenue per Terminal is calculated by dividing NRS’ recurring revenue by the average number of active POS terminals during the period. The average number of active POS terminals is calculated by adding the beginning and ending number of active POS terminals during the period and dividing by two. NRS’ recurring revenue divided by the average number of active POS terminals is divided by three when the period is a fiscal quarter. Recurring revenue and Monthly Average Recurring Revenue per Terminal are useful for comparisons of NRS’ revenue and revenue per customer to prior periods and to competitors and others in the market, as well as for forecasting future revenue from the customer base.

BOSS Money’s Average Revenue per Transaction is also a financial metric. Average Revenue per Transaction is calculated by dividing BOSS Money’s revenue in accordance with GAAP by the number of transactions during the period. Average Revenue per Transaction is useful for comparisons of BOSS Money’s revenue per transaction to prior periods and to competitors and others in the market, as well as for forecasting future revenue based on transaction trends.

net2phone’s subscription revenue is its revenue in accordance with GAAP excluding its equipment revenue and revenue generated by a legacy SIP trunking offering in Brazil. net2phone’s cloud communications and contact center offerings are priced on a per-seat basis, with customers paying based on the number of users in their organization. The number of seats served and subscription revenue trends and comparisons between periods are used in the analysis of net2phone’s revenues and direct cost of revenues, and are strong indications of the top-line growth and performance of the business.
