NRSInsights’ October Retail Same-Store Sales Report

Consumer spending at NRS retailers in October increased 9.5% compared to October 2021 and increased 3.6% compared to September 2022

NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 07, 2022 — NRSInsights, a provider of sales data and analytics drawn from retail transactions processed through the National Retail Solutions (NRS) nationwide point-of-sale (POS) platform, today announced comparative same-store sales results for October 2022.

The NRS retail network comprises over 20,000 terminals scanning purchases at independent retailers including bodegas, convenience stores, liquor stores, grocers, and tobacco and sundries sellers predominantly serving urban consumers.

Retail Same-Store Sales Highlights for October 2022

(Sequential comparisons are influenced by seasonal factors)

  • Same-store sales increased 9.5% from a year earlier (October 2021) and increased 3.6% compared to the preceding month (September 2022);
  • Same-store sales in the preceding month (September 2022) had also increased 9.5% compared to the year-ago month (September 2021) but had decreased 1.2% compared to the previous month, (August 2022);
  • Year to date, same-store sales have increased 8.2% compared to the comparable period in 2021;
  • For the three months ended October 31, 2022, same-store sales increased 8.6% compared to the three months a year ago;
  • The number of items sold during October 2022 increased 8.6% compared to October 2021 and increased 4.4% compared to September 2022;
  • The average number of transactions per store in October 2022 increased 4.9% compared to October 2021 and increased 1.5% compared to September 2022;
  • A dollar-weighted average of prices for the top 500 items purchased in October 2022 increased 4.1% year over year, an increase compared to the 3.6% year-over-year increase in September 2022.

Suzy Silliman, SVP, Data Strategy and Sales at NRS commented, “NRS same-store sales data for October showed strong consumer demand, with robust year over year and sequential increases. The rate of increase in the cost of the most popular items also increased significantly, suggesting that inflationary pressures are still building in this slice of the retail market.”

The table below provides historical comparative data with the US Commerce Department’s Advance Monthly Retail Trade data excluding food service:

NRSInsights Reports

The NRSInsights monthly Same-Store Retail Sales Reports are intended to provide timely topline data reflective of sales at NRS’ network of independent, predominantly urban, retail stores.

Over the prior 12 months, the NRS same-store retail sales data has exhibited a statistically significant correlation with the US Commerce Department’s Advance Monthly Retail Trade data excluding food services (r =.869, p = 0.000003)

The NRSInsights data have not been adjusted to reflect inflation, demographic distributions, seasonal buying patterns, item substitution, or other factors that may facilitate comparisons to other periods, to other same-store retail sales data, or to the US Commerce Department’s retail data.

Same-store data comparisons of October 2022 with October 2021 are derived from approximately 122 million transactions processed through the 11,616 stores on the NRS network that scanned transactions in both months.

NRS POS Network

NRS operates the largest POS network for independent retailers in the US, aggregating data from over 20,000 active POS terminals operating in over 17,000 independent retail stores. Its platform predominantly serves urban, small-format, independent, retail stores including convenience stores, bodegas, liquor stores, grocers, and tobacco and sundries sellers. The network includes retailers in all 50 states and in 190 of the 210 designated market areas (DMAs) in the US. Over the past twelve months, NRS’ POS terminals processed $12.6 billion in sales through approximately 910 million transactions.

  • IDT repurchased 554,744 shares of its Class B common stock in the open market for $13.4 million during 4Q22.

REMARKS BY SHMUEL JONAS, CEO

“In the fourth quarter and for the full 2022 fiscal year, our high-margin, rapidly growing fintech and cloud communications businesses delivered impressive year-over-year and sequential results. For several years we have invested in these businesses to develop the next generation of IDT’s value creation. This transformation helped drive IDT’s consolidated quarterly and annual Adjusted EBITDA to their highest levels in our history.

“Looking ahead, we anticipate that the continued growth of these high-margin fintech and cloud communications businesses and of our Mobile Top-Up offerings will further, significantly improve IDT’s consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, more than offsetting the continued decreasing contributions that we expect from the BOSS Revolution Calling and IDT Global businesses within our lower margin Traditional Communications segment.”

NRS Take-Aways:

  • As of July 31, 2022, NRS’ POS terminal network comprised approximately 19,400 active POS terminals, an increase of 38% compared to a year earlier, and approximately 10,300 payment processing accounts, an increase of 77% compared to a year earlier;
  • NRS recurring revenue increased 157% in 4Q22 to $17.7 million from $6.9 million in 4Q21. FY2022 recurring revenue increased 129% to $45.3 million from $19.8 million in FY2021;
  • NRS monthly average recurring revenue per terminal increased to $316 from $169;
  • In August 2022, NRS and Bringg, a leading delivery management platform provider, announced a partnership to enable NRS retailers nationwide to source and manage external delivery providers for home delivery services utilizing Bringg’s delivery hub.

BOSS Money Take-Aways:

  • Transaction volumes in 4Q22 increased 31% to 2.67 million from 2.04 million. FY2022 transaction volumes increased 24% to 9.37 million from 7.54 million.
  • Revenue increased 56% in 4Q22 to $17.0 million from $10.9 million. FY2022 revenue increased 16% to $57.5 million from $49.6 million. The robust 4Q22 increase resulted from accelerated growth in transaction volumes as well as higher average revenue per transaction*;
  • Average revenue per transaction in 4Q22 increased 19% to $6.35 from $5.33. The increase was driven by the development and introduction of new platform functionalities enabling more flexible and granular pricing strategies. In FY2022, average revenue per transaction decreased 7% to $6.13 from $6.57 as a result of elevated foreign exchange revenues realized during the first half of fiscal 2021 from favorable, transitory market conditions;
  • During 4Q22, BOSS Money announced an expansion of service to Ethiopia by offering direct deposit to approximately 40 million Ethiopian bank accounts through an agreement with Terra Pay, a global mobile-first payments provider. More recently, BOSS Money initiated a collaboration with United Bank for Africa (UBA) to enable customers to send U.S. dollars for direct deposit at any of the approximately 20 million UBA accounts in Nigeria.

net2phone

In 4Q22 and 4Q21, the net2phone segment accounted for 4.9% and 3.2% of IDT’s consolidated revenue, respectively. In FY2022 and FY2021, the net2phone segment accounted for 4.3% and 3.1% of consolidated revenue, respectively.

net2phone Takeaways:

  • Total seats on July 31, 2022 increased 4% to 291,000 from 279,000 on April 30, 2022. Seats increased 29% from 226,000 a year earlier. The year-over-year increase included 7,000 seats added through the Integra CCaaS acquisition in 3Q22;
  • Subscription revenue in 4Q22 increased 37% to $15.1 million from $11.0 million, led by strong growth in both net2phone’s South and North American regions. FY2022 subscription revenue increased 38% to $53.6 million from $38.8 million in FY2021. Revenue per seat increased robustly in both South and North America — the former despite the strengthening of the US dollar relative to most South American currencies — as net2phone focused on higher-value customers and channel partners;
  • During 4Q22, net2phone announced a partnership with TeleBermuda International Limited (TBi) to provide its UCaaS solutions to TBi’s business customers. net2phone also announced a strategic partnership with UPSTACK to enable UPSTACK’s expert advisors to offer net2phone’s cloud communication solutions to clients;
  • Following the close of the fiscal year, net2phone was named a UCaaS growth and innovation leader in Latin America and the Caribbean by Frost & Sullivan, which placed net2phone in the top quadrant of the Frost RadarTM: Unified Communications as a Service Market in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2022. During 4Q22, netphone’s UCaaS offering was recognized as one of the 10 Most Promising Unified Communication Solutions in 2022 by CIOReview, a leading publication for business technology leaders.

Traditional Communications

In 4Q22 and 4Q21, the Traditional Communications segment accounted for 84.1% and 91.9% of IDT’s consolidated revenue, respectively. In FY2022 and FY2021, the Traditional Communications segment accounted for 87.7% and 91.8% of consolidated revenue, respectively.

Traditional Communications TakeAways:

  • Mobile Top-Up (MTU) revenue in 4Q22 decreased 18% to $112.6 million from $136.6 million. The decrease reflects a sudden, industry-wide deterioration in a key corridor that was particularly impactful in the wholesale and retail channels. In FY2022, revenue increased 3% to $473.2 million from $461.6 million in FY2021 led by increased sales of bundled offerings;
  • BOSS Revolution Calling revenue in 4Q22 decreased 20% to $90.2 million from $112.6 million. In FY2022, revenue decreased 15% to $387.9 million from $455.2 million in FY2021. The decreases reflect the long-standing industry-wide decline in the paid minute calling markets that paused during the initial stages of the COVID pandemic but have since accelerated;
  • IDT Global’s carrier services revenue in 4Q22 decreased 35% to $62.9 million from $97.4 million. FY2022 revenue decreased 19% to $292.3 million from $361.0 million in FY2021;
  • Decreases in BOSS Revolution Calling and IDT Global revenues have been heavily skewed toward lower margin corridors and/or distribution channels, mitigating their bottom-line impacts. Management anticipates, however, that both offerings will continue to generate significant, though uneven, revenue decreases for the foreseeable future and that, gradually, a larger proportion of these decreases will impact Traditional Communications’ bottom line results.

NOTES ON FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Consolidated results for all periods presented include corporate overhead. Corporate G&A expense was $1.7 million in both 4Q22 and 4Q21. FY2022 corporate SG&A increased to $7.8 million from $7.5 million in FY2021.

As of July 31, 2022, IDT held $137.7 million in cash, cash equivalents, debt securities, and current equity investments. Current assets totaled $362.6 million and current liabilities totaled $305.1 million, and IDT had no outstanding debt.

Net cash provided by operating activities during 4Q22 was $16.1 million compared to $28.5 million during 4Q21. Exclusive of changes in customer deposit balances at our Gibraltar-based bank, net cash provided by operating activities during 4Q22 was $22.3 million compared to $24.3 million during 4Q21.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the
Fourth Quarter and Full Fiscal Years 2022 and 2021

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 4Q22, 3Q22, 4Q21, and the full fiscal years 2022 and 2021, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS), all 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 net income starts with net income in accordance with GAAP and adds severance expense, stock-based compensation, and other operating expense, and deducts the release of valuation allowance on deferred tax assets and other operating gains. These additions and subtractions are non-cash and/or non-routine items in the relevant fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021 periods.

IDT’s measure of non-GAAP EPS is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by the diluted weighted-average shares.

Management believes that IDT’s Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, 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, non-GAAP net income, 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, non-GAAP net income, 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 (expense) gain, net, which is a component of income (loss) from operations, is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS. Other operating (expense) gain, net includes legal fees net of insurance claims related to Straight Path Communications Inc.’s stockholders’ putative class action and derivative complaint, expense for the indemnification of a net2phone cable telephony customer related to patent infringement claims brought against the customer, a gain from the write-off of a contingent consideration liability, expense for other legal and regulatory matters, and a gain from the sale of IDT’s rights under a class action lawsuit. From time-to-time, IDT may have gains or incur costs related to non-routine legal and regulatory 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 net income and 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.

In 4Q21 and 3Q21, due to continue d and projected profitability, IDT was able to release a portion of its valuation allowance that was recorded against its deferred tax assets. These income tax benefits were excluded from IDT’s non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS because they were only indirectly related to the results of IDT’s core operations.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, 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, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Following are reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, 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, (b) for non-GAAP net income, net income, and (c) for non-GAAP EPS, diluted earnings per share.

Explanation of Key Performance Metrics

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. NRS’ recurring revenue is NRS’ revenue in accordance with GAAP excluding revenue from POS terminal sales. 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. Monthly Average Recurring Revenue per Terminal is useful for comparisons of NRS’ 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 cloud communications 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 are strong indications of the top-line growth and performance of the business.

NRSInsights’ September Retail Same-Store Sales Report

Consumer spending at NRS retailers in September increased 9.5% compared to September 2021 but decreased 1.2% compared to August 2022

NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)NRSInsights, a provider of sales data and analytics drawn from retail transactions processed through the National Retail Solutions (NRS) nationwide point-of-sale (POS) platform, today announced comparative same-store sales results for September 2022.

The NRS retail network comprises over 20,000 terminals scanning purchases at independent retailers including bodegas, convenience stores, liquor stores, grocers, and tobacco and sundries sellers predominantly serving urban consumers.

Retail Same-Store Sales Highlights for September 2022

(Sequential comparisons are influenced by seasonal factors)

  • Same-store sales increased 9.5% from a year earlier (September 2021) and decreased 1.2% compared to the preceding month (August 2022);
  • Same-store sales in the preceding month (August 2022) had increased 6.4% compared to the year-ago month (August 2021) and decreased 3.3% compared to the previous month, (July 2022);
  • Year to date, same-store sales have increased 8.3% compared to the comparable period in 2021;
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2022, same-store sales increased 9.1% compared to the three months a year ago;
  • The number of items sold during September 2022 increased 8.1% compared to September 2021 and decreased 2.5% compared to August 2022;
  • The average number of transactions per store in September 2022 increased 5.5% compared to September 2021 and decreased 2.4% compared to August 2022;

“We just exhibited and presented at the 2022 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) show, where we observed a significant increase in products for the Hispanic market and malt-based alcoholic beverages. The NRS dataset has revealed strong growth in both of these categories for quite some time,” Silliman added. “The NRS data is frequently used for trend spotting. It has proven to be a reliable leading indicator of future mainstream trends.”

The table below provides historical comparative data with the US Commerce Department’s Advance Monthly Retail Trade data excluding food service:

NRSInsights Reports

The NRSInsights monthly Same-Store Retail Sales Reports are intended to provide timely topline data reflective of sales at NRS’ network of independent, predominantly urban, retail stores.

Same-store data comparisons of September 2022 with September 2021 are derived from approximately 117 million transactions processed through the 11,333 stores on the NRS network that scanned transactions in both months. Same-store data comparisons of September 2022 data with August 2022 data are derived from approximately 167 million transactions processed through 16,987 stores.

NRSInsights Announces August Retail Same-Store Sales Report

The NRS retail network comprises over 19,000 terminals nationwide processing purchases at bodegas and other independent retailers predominantly serving urban consumers

Consumer spending at NRS retailers in August increased 6.4% compared to August 2021 but decreased 3.3% compared to July 2022

NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 06, 2022 — NRSInsights, a provider of sales data and analytics drawn from retail transactions processed through the National Retail Solutions (NRS) nationwide point-of-sale (POS) platform, today announced comparative same-store sales results for August 2022.

August 2022 Retail Same-Store Sales Highlights for August 2022

  • Same-store sales increased 6.4% from a year earlier (August 2021) and decreased 3.3% compared to the preceding month (July 2022). Same-store sales in July had increased 9.2% compared to the year-ago month, July 2021, and increased 6.5% compared to the previous month, June 2022. (Note: sequential comparisons are impacted by seasonal factors).
  • Year to date, same-store sales have increased 8.4% compared to the comparable period in 2021;
  • For the three months ended August 31, 2022, same-store sales increased 9.2% compared to the three months ended August 31, 2021.
  • The number of items sold during August 2022 increased 6.8% compared to August 2021 and decreased 0.8% compared to July 2022;
  • The average number of transactions per store in August 2022 increased 3.9% compared to August 2021 and decreased 1.2% compared to July 2022;
  • A dollar-weighted average of prices for the top 500 items purchased in August increased 2.3% year over year, less than the 2.9% year-over-year increase in July 2022.

“NRS same-store sales data for August continue to reflect strong year-over-year dollar increases, but at a less robust pace than we saw in July,” said Suzy Silliman, SVP, Data Strategy and Sales at NRS. “While spending in August decreased compared to July, we typically experience a modest sequential decline in August driven by seasonal factors. Categories bucking the trend with sequential gains in quantity, baskets, and dollars included school and office supplies and packaged lunch combos -categories driven by back-to-school seasonality. The August data also suggest that inflationary pressures have subsided somewhat. Costs of our most popular items increased 2.3% year over year compared to the 2.9% year over year increase we saw last month.”
