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.


As used in this Transition Report on Form 10-K, unless the context otherwise indicates, the references to "our company," "the Company," "UBPS," "us," "we" and "our" refer to Universal Business Payment Solutions Acquisition 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.


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 mentioned, we completed the acquisitions of JetPay, LLC and AD Computer Corporation, or ADC, on December 28, 2012. JetPay, LLC was determined to be the Predecessor Company and accordingly, their results of operations for the three and sixmonths ended June 30, 2012 are included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as the Predecessor. ADC's results of operations are included in our consolidated financial statements for post-acquisition periods.

We are a provider of payment services - debit and credit card processing, payroll, and card services to businesses and their employees throughout the United States. We provide these services through two wholly-owned subsidiaries, JetPay, LLC, 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, 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, LLC and ADC to penetrate new customer niches and geographic markets, including developing creative incentive compensation plans to target new business and increase current business margins. Our organic growth strategy also includes cross marketing initiatives to sell credit and debit card processing services to ADC's payroll customers and payroll processing services to JetPay, LLC's 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, LLC and ADC operations. Our acquisition strategy is focused on identifying small to medium-sized companies that provide either provide services similar to ours or services that expand our product and service offerings and/or our geographic reach. Both our JetPay, LLC and ADC operations have significant under-utilized processing capacity, which can be leveraged to create additional processing revenues. Our overall strategy also includes looking for cost synergies as we continue to integrate the JetPay, LLC and ADC 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.

On May 13, 2011 we consummated our initial public offering, or Offering, of 12,000,000 units at a price of $6.00 per unit. Simultaneously with the Offering, certain of our initial stockholders and the underwriters of the Offering purchased 6,960,000 warrants at $0.50 per warrant (for an aggregate purchase price of $3,480,000) from the Company. We raised aggregate gross proceeds of $75,480,000 from the Offering and the warrant offering, of which $72,720,000 was being held in a trust account for our benefit. We intended to use this cash, our capital stock, incurred debt, or a combination of cash, capital stock, and debt, in effecting our initial business combination.

Upon consummation of the Completed Transactions, we used $68,819,668 of the funds held in the trust account (i) to pay certain of our aggregate costs, fees and expenses in connection with the consummation of the Completed Transactions,
(ii) to pay tax obligations and (iii) to pay our stockholders who properly exercised their redemption rights. On December 28, 2012, our public stockholders requested redemption of 9,994,625 shares of common stock for their pro rata share of the amounts then held in the trust account, which upon consummation of the Completed Transactions, was approximately $6.08 per share for an aggregate payment to the redeeming stockholders of approximately $60,755,000 of which $58,807,000 was released from the trust and of which $1,948,000 was pending redemption, each as of December 31, 2012.

In connection with the consummation of our initial business combination and the Warrant Termination Agreement dated as of December 28, 2012 with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, we converted all of our issued and outstanding warrants into shares of our common stock. As a result of such conversion, 18,960,000 warrants were converted into 2,527,359 shares of our common stock on December 28, 2012.

On December 28, 2012, ADC Merger Sub and JetPay, LLC Merger Sub merged with and into ADC and JetPay, LLC, respectively, with ADC and JetPay, LLC, respectively, surviving such mergers. We refer to the acquisition of JetPay, LLC and ADC as the Completed Transactions. In connection with the closing, we caused $16 million in cash to be delivered to the stockholders of ADC and approximately $6.8 million to WLES, JetPay, LLC's sole member. Additionally, we issued 1 million shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or Common Stock, to the stockholders of ADC and 3,666,667 shares of Common Stock to WLES, L.P., or WLES, 3,333,333 of which was deposited in an escrow account to secure certain obligations of WLES.

We did not conduct any operations or generated any revenues until the acquisition of ADC and JetPay, LLC on December 28, 2012. Our activity from our inception in November 2010, through the closing of our Offering in May 2011, was in preparation for that event. After the Offering, our activity was limited to the evaluation of business combination candidates. We did not generate any operating revenues until the closing and completion of our initial business combination on December 28, 2012. We deemed the business combinations to have been completed as of December 31, 2012 in that the results of operations post December 28, 2012 to December 31, 2012 were immaterial. JetPay, LLC was deemed the Predecessor Company. Additionally, the result of operations for our corporate entity for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 consisted largely of transaction costs and are not presented as they were deemed immaterial.

JetPay, LLC (Predecessor)


JetPay, LLC's 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 for a fixed cost. JetPay, LLC's discount revenues are generally a fixed percentage of the merchant's dollar volume. Merchant billings primarily consist of transaction fees and discount fees, which are a percentage of the dollar amount of each credit or debit transaction. JetPay, LLC derives the balance of its merchant billings from a variety of fixed transaction or service fees, and 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, LLC 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, LLC's merchant count and/or growth in the same store transaction volume will also drive JetPay, LLC's processing revenue growth. Revenues are recorded at the time service is provided.


The most significant components of operating expenses are salaries and other employment costs. These costs are largely fixed in nature, increasing slightly with the growth in numbers of customers, but tending to grow with inflation. Assessments and bank costs include assessment fees payable to card associations, which are generally a percentage of card volume, and bank sponsorship costs which are largely based upon transaction counts and volumes. 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, LLC's merchants, but can vary from period to period depending upon specific events in that period. Interest expense is related to a loan to buy out the interest of a former JetPay, LLC partner. This expense is fixed based upon a schedule of increasing interest rates over the life of the loan. JetPay, LLC has and will continue to experience higher than normal professional fees due to the Direct Air bankruptcy hearings and associated legal concerns surrounding the failed merchant.



ADC's revenue, including revenue from its payroll tax processing operation, PTFS, totaled $2.9 million and $6.4 million in the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively. The majority of revenue from ADC and PTFS 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. ADC and PTFS experience increased revenues in the fourth and first calendar quarters due to additional employer annual tax filing requirements. PTFS' 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.


ADC and PTFS's most significant cost of processing revenues is its 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. ADC and PTFS's 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.
