August 04, 2022 at 16:01 PM EDT
CompoSecure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CMPO), a leader in payment, security, and authentication solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Jon Wilk, CompoSecure’s President and CEO commented, “We had an outstanding quarter, and I am proud that we have achieved record results through strong sales execution, deep customer relationships, and international expansion. Looking ahead, we expect continued growth in our metal payment card business driven by both new customers and expansion of business from our existing base. In addition, we believe that we will benefit from ongoing card issuer trends such as the robust demand for travel and entertainment spending, and the high demand for premium metal card products.”
He continued, “Current challenges in the digital asset market, including crypto exchanges freezing or limiting withdrawals, are driving an increased need for consumers to control their private keys, and we are encouraged by recent partnerships for security, authentication, and cold storage leveraging our Arculus platform. At the same time, this market cycle has created uncertainty in timing for our anticipated Arculus ramp up since some of our partners and targets have been impacted. As we have stated, we continue to be thoughtful about how we are running the business and remain focused on margins while simultaneously managing our investments to capture long-term value for our shareholders. We are confident that our Arculus platform is well positioned to meet the current and anticipated needs of the market.”
Mr. Wilk added, “We have delivered exceptional results through the first half of the year while navigating a dynamic environment. Given our performance and continued confidence in the strength of our sales pipeline, we are raising our 2022 full fiscal year guidance.”

Although the Company believes that its plans, intentions, and expectations reflected in or suggested by these forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot assure you that it will achieve or realize these plans, intentions, or expectations. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. Generally, statements that are not historical facts, including statements concerning the Company’s possible or assumed future actions, business strategies, events, or results of operations, are forward-looking statements. In some instances, these statements may be preceded by, followed by or include the words “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “projects,” “forecasts,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “plans,” “scheduled,” “anticipates” or “intends” or the negatives of these terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of performance. You should not put undue reliance on these statements which speak only as of the date hereof. You should understand that the following important factors, among others, could affect the Company’s future results and could cause those results or other outcomes to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the Company’s forward-looking statements: the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the Company or others; the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; the ability of the Company to grow and manage growth profitably, maintain relationships with customers, compete within its industry and retain its key employees; the possibility that the Company may be adversely impacted by other economic conditions (including the rapidly evolving conflict between Russian and the Ukraine), business, and/or competitive factors; future exchange and interest rates; and other risks and uncertainties included under “Risk Factors” in other Company filings that have been made or will be made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and that may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors in evaluating the Company’s financial performance. The Company uses these measures internally to establish forecasts, budgets and operational goals to manage and monitor its business, as well as evaluate its underlying historical performance and to measure incentive compensation, as we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures depict the true performance of the business by encompassing only relevant and controllable events, enabling the Company to evaluate and plan more effectively for the future. In addition, the Company’s debt agreements contain covenants that use a variation of these measures for purposes of determining debt covenant compliance. The Company believes that investors should have access to the same set of tools that its management uses in analyzing operating results. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP, and the items excluded from EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company’s financial performance. Accordingly, these key business metrics have limitations as an analytical tool. They should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of the Company’s liquidity and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Please refer to the tables below for the reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the quarters and years ended June 30, 2022 and June 30, 2021.
