Quarterly Report


Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion of the financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise indicates, the references to "our company," "the Company," "JetPay," "us," "we" and "our" refer to JetPay Corporation.

This report and other written or oral statements made from time to time by us may contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can sometimes identify forward looking-statements by our use of the words "believes," "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plan," "forecast," "guidance" and similar expressions. Some of the statements we use in this report, and in some of the documents we incorporate by reference in this report, contain forward-looking statements concerning our business operations, economic performance and financial condition, including in particular: our business strategy and means to implement the strategy; measures of future results of operations, such as revenue, expenses, operating margins, income tax rates, and earnings per share; other operating metrics such as shares outstanding and capital expenditures; our success and timing in developing and introducing new products or services and expanding our business; and the successful integration of future acquisitions.

Although we believe that the plans and expectations reflected in or suggested by our forward-looking statements are reasonable, those statements are based on a number of assumptions and estimates that are inherently subject to significant risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, cannot be foreseen and reflect future business decisions that are subject to change. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee you that our plans and expectations will be achieved. Our actual revenues, revenue growth rates and margins, other results of operations and shareholder values could differ materially from those anticipated in our forward-looking statements as a result of many known and unknown factors, many of which are beyond our ability to predict or control. These factors include, but are not limited to, those set forth in Item 1A - Risk Factors of this report, those set forth elsewhere in this report and those set forth in our press releases, reports and other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. These cautionary statements qualify all of our forward-looking statements, and you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and should not be relied upon as representing our plans and expectations as of any subsequent date. While we may elect to update or revise forward-looking statements at some time in the future, we specifically disclaim any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions to our forward-looking statements.

Overview

We were formed on November 12, 2010 as a blank check company in the development stage to serve as a vehicle to acquire through a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, plan of arrangement, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination, one or more operating businesses. As previously disclosed, we completed the acquisitions of JetPay, LLC and AD Computer Corporation, or ADC, on December 28, 2012.

We are a provider of payment services - debit and credit card processing, payroll, and prepaid card services to businesses and their employees throughout the United States. We provide these services through two wholly-owned subsidiaries, JetPay, LLC, currently doing business as JetPay Payment Services, which provides debit and credit processing and ACH payment services to businesses with a focus on those processing internet transactions and recurring billings, and ADC, currently doing business as JetPay Payroll Services, which provides payroll, tax filing, and related services to small and medium-sized employers. We also operate JetPay Card Services, a division which is focused on providing low-cost money management and payment services to unbanked and under-banked employees of our business customers.

Our overall business strategy is to provide payment processing services to small to medium-sized businesses with a high percentage of our revenues consisting of recurring revenues with strong margins and with relatively low capital requirements. Our corporate strategy is to increase our revenues in our newly acquired businesses through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. Our organic growth strategy is focused on developing and increasing our current marketing and sales staff at both JetPay Payment Services and JetPay Payroll Services to penetrate new customer niches and geographic markets. Our organic growth strategy also includes cross marketing initiatives to sell credit and debit card processing services to JetPay Payroll Services' payroll customers and payroll processing services to JetPay Payment Services' credit and debit card processing customers. Additionally, we will be seeking additional debt and/or equity capital to acquire additional credit and debit card processors, Independent Sales Organizations or ISOs and/or payroll processors to integrate into our JetPay Payment Services and JetPay Payroll Services operations. Our acquisition strategy is focused on identifying small to medium-sized companies that either provides services similar to ours or services that expand our product and service offerings and/or our geographic reach. Both our JetPay Payment Services and our JetPay Payroll Services operations have significant under-utilized processing capacity, which can be leveraged to create additional processing revenues without significant cost increases. We also plan to introduce new products, such as our recently launched Card Services division in the fourth quarter of 2013, which provides low-cost financial tools to both un-banked and under-banked consumers. Our overall strategy also includes looking for cost synergies as we continue to integrate the JetPay Payment Services and JetPay Payroll Services operations in such areas as insurance costs, banking costs, employee benefit costs, and other selling, general and administrative cost as well as operating cost areas.

JetPay Payment Services

Revenues

JetPay Payment Services revenues fall into two categories: transaction processing revenue and merchant discount revenue. As such, our two primary drivers are the number of transactions and merchant dollar volume. A third measure related to merchant dollar volume, for those merchants where we charge a percentage of the sale amount, is the average size of the transaction, as costs for processing the transaction tend to be fixed, so that the higher the average ticket, the more revenue we earn for a fixed cost. JetPay Payment Services' discount revenues are generally a fixed percentage of the merchant's dollar volume, with interchange and other third-party fees passed through to the merchant without markup. Our billings to merchants primarily consist of these transaction fees and discount fees, as well as, pass-through fees for other miscellaneous services, such as handling chargebacks. Interchange costs are set by the card networks, and are paid directly by the sponsoring bank to the credit card associations based upon a percentage of transaction amounts and/or a fixed price per transaction. JetPay Payment Services refers to the ratio of processing revenues to the dollar amount of card transactions processed as the "margin." If margin increases, processing revenues will tend to increase accordingly. Further, both the number of merchants who process transactions, and the average dollar amount of transactions processed per merchant, will impact the total transaction volume and thus the total processing revenues. As such, growth in JetPay Payment Services' merchant count and/or growth in the same store transaction volume will also drive JetPay Payment Services' processing revenue growth. Revenues are recorded at the time service is provided.

Expenses

The most significant components of operating expenses are credit card association fees and assessments, ISO agent residuals, and salaries and other employment costs. Salaries and other employment costs are largely fixed in nature, increasing slightly with the growth in numbers of customers, but tending to grow with inflation. Credit card fees and assessments and bank sponsorship costs are generally a percentage of card volume. Bank sponsorship costs are largely based upon transaction counts and volumes. Selling, general and administrative expenses include stable costs such as occupancy and office costs, outside services, and depreciation and amortization expense, which is recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of the assets. Cost of processing revenue also includes chargeback losses, which vary over the long term based upon transaction volume processed by JetPay Payment Services' merchants, but can vary from period to period depending upon specific events in that period. Interest expense in 2013 was related to a loan to buy out the interest of a former JetPay Payment Services partner. This expense was fixed based upon a schedule of increasing interest rates over the life of the loan which was paid in full on October 11, 2013. JetPay Payment Services has and will continue to experience higher than normal professional fees due to the Direct Air bankruptcy matter and several other suits described in Part II, Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

JetPay Payroll Services

Revenues

The majority of revenue from JetPay Payroll Services is derived from their payroll processing operations, which includes the calculations, preparation, collection and delivery of employer payroll obligations and the production of internal accounting records and management reports, and from services provided for the preparation of federal, state, and local payroll tax returns including the collection and remittance of clients' payroll tax obligations. JetPay Payroll Services experiences increased revenues in the fourth and first calendar quarters due to additional employer annual tax filing requirements. PTFS's trust account earnings represent the interest earned on the funds held for clients trust balance. Trust fund earnings can fluctuate based on the amount held in the trust account as well as fluctuations in interest rate.

Expenses

JetPay Payroll Services' most significant cost of processing revenues is their payroll and related expenses and facility overhead costs. These costs are largely fixed in nature, increasing slightly with the growth in numbers of customers, but tending to grow with inflation. JetPay Payroll Services' selling, general, and administrative expenses include the costs of the administrative and sales staff, payroll delivery costs, outside services, rent, office expense, insurance, sales and marketing costs and professional services costs.
