Third Quarter 2024 Revenue of $67.9 Million, Driven by 15.5% Year Over Year Growth in Subscription and Transaction Fees

Third Quarter 2024 Net Income Applicable to Common Shares of $4.4 Million and Adjusted EBITDA of $10.2 Million

Third Quarter 2024 Gross Margin of 39.6%

MALVERN, Pa.: Cantaloupe, Inc. (Nasdaq: CTLP) (“Cantaloupe” or the “Company”), a leading provider of end-to-end technology solutions for self-service commerce, today reported results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2024.

“In the third quarter, we reported strong results, reflecting our continued expansion of operating leverage by driving revenue growth while also optimizing COGS and controlling operational expenses. While subscription revenue has grown slower than anticipated, transaction revenue growth is exceeding expectations and achieving higher profitability rates sooner,” said Ravi Venkatesan, chief executive officer, Cantaloupe. “We continue to expand our footprint domestically and internationally, and are pleased to now have sold thousands of devices across Latin America and Europe. The significant rise in cashless and touchless payments, along with the growth of micro markets, in the convenience industry are strong secular tailwinds that validate the long-term opportunity of Cantaloupe and will continue to drive our business for years to come.”

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measure:

This press release contains discussion of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which is not required or defined under U.S. GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). Generally, a non-GAAP financial 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. Reconciliations between non-GAAP financial measures and the most comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth below. However, we do not provide forward-looking guidance for certain financial measures on a GAAP basis because we are unable to predict certain items contained in the U.S. measures without unreasonable efforts. These items may include acquisition and integration related costs, severance expenses, litigation charges or settlements, and certain other unusual adjustments.

We use Adjusted EBITDA for financial and operational decision-making purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information about our operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects and allows for greater transparency with respect to metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision making. The presentation of this financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial measures prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, including our net income or net loss or net cash used in operating activities. Management recognizes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the items associated with our net income or net loss as determined in accordance with GAAP, and are not a substitute for or a measure of our profitability or net earnings. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because we believe it is useful to investors as a measure of comparative operating performance. Additionally, we utilize Adjusted EBITDA as a metric in our executive officer and management incentive compensation plans.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) before (i) interest income from cash and leases, (ii) interest (income) expense on debt and tax liabilities, (iii) income tax provision, (iv) depreciation, (v) amortization, (vi) stock-based compensation expense, (vii) fees and charges, net of reimbursement from insurance proceeds, that were incurred in connection with the 2019 Investigation and financial statement restatement activities as well as proxy solicitation costs that are not indicative of our core operations, (viii) certain other significant infrequent or unusual losses and gains that are not indicative of our core operations such as integration and acquisition expenses, and (ix) severance expenses that are non-recurring and are not indicative of our core operations.

Such forward-looking statements are based on the reasonable beliefs of Cantaloupe's management, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to Cantaloupe's management.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release speaks only as of the date of this release. Unless required by law, Cantaloupe does not undertake to release publicly any revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect future events or circumstances or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. If Cantaloupe updates one or more forward-looking statements, no inference should be drawn that Cantaloupe will make additional updates with respect to those or other forward-looking statements.
