SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Throughout this report, the terms “we”, “us”, “ours”, “CoreCard” and “Company” refer to CoreCard Corporation, including its wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries. The unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements presented in this Form 10-Q have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States applicable to interim financial statements. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required for complete financial statements. In the opinion of CoreCard management, these Consolidated Financial Statements contain all adjustments (which comprise only normal and recurring accruals) necessary to present fairly the financial position and results of operations as of and for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022. The interim results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. These statements should be read in conjunction with our Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, as filed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

There have been no material changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies as compared to the significant accounting policies described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, to require financial assets carried at amortized cost to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected based on historical experience, current conditions and forecasts. Subsequently, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, to clarify that receivables arising from operating leases are within the scope of lease accounting standards. Further, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-04, ASU No. 2019-05, ASU 2019-10 and ASU 2019-11 to provide additional guidance on the credit losses standard. The ASUs are effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted. Adoption of the ASUs is on a modified retrospective basis. We adopted the ASUs on January 1, 2023, which did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2022-02 "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Troubled Debt Restructurings and Vintage Disclosures" (ASU 2022-02), which eliminates the accounting guidance for troubled debt restructurings (TDRs) by creditors that have adopted ASU 2016-13, "Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments" and enhances certain disclosure requirements. The ASU is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted. Adoption of the ASUs is on a modified retrospective basis. We adopted the ASUs on January 1, 2023, which did not have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

We have considered all other recently issued accounting pronouncements and do not believe the adoption of such pronouncements will have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

NOTES RECEIVABLE

 

In February 2021, we entered into and advanced a $550,000 Promissory Note with a privately held technology company and program manager in the FinTech industry. The note had an interest rate of 4.6 percent annually and was paid in full in August 2023. In September 2023, we entered into and advanced a $450,000 Promissory Note with a maturity date of October 2025 and an annual interest rate of 5.25 percent. The carrying value of the current portion of our note receivable of $240,000 at September 30, 2023 is included in other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The carrying value of the noncurrent portion of our note receivable of $210,000 at September 30, 2023 is included in other long-term assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

 

4.

INVESTMENTS

 

We hold a 28 percent ownership interest in a privately held identity and professional services company with ties to the FinTech industry. The carrying value of our investment was $3,479,000 at September 30, 2023, included in investments on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. We account for this investment using the equity method of accounting which resulted in losses of $15,000 and $701,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, respectively, and income of $38,000 and $195,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively, included in investment income (loss) on the Consolidated Statement of Operations. We evaluate on a continuing basis whether any impairment indicators are present that would require additional analysis or write-downs of the investment. While we have not recorded an impairment related to this investment as of September 30, 2023, variations from current expectations could result in future impairment charges.

 

In the second quarter of 2021, we invested $1,000,000 in a privately held company that provides supply chain and receivables financing. During the third quarter of 2023, due to the failure of the business to successfully monetize its product offerings, we recorded an impairment charge of $1,000,000 included in investment income (loss) on the Consolidated Statement of Operations, to reduce the carrying value of the investee company to $0 as of September 30, 2023.

 

 

5.

STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

At September 30, 2023, we have two stock-based compensation plans in effect. We record compensation cost related to unvested stock awards by recognizing the unamortized grant date fair value on a straight-line basis over the vesting periods of each award. We have estimated forfeiture rates based on our historical experience. Stock option compensation expense for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 has been recognized as a component of general and administrative expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements. We recorded $0 of stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 and $150,000 and $160,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

8

 

As of September 30, 2023, there is no unrecognized compensation cost related to stock options. There were no options exercised during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023. No options expired unexercised during the quarter. The following table summarizes options as of September 30, 2023:

- $39.11       59,000       4.9     $ 17.35     $ 309,160  

 

The estimated fair value of options granted is calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with assumptions as previously disclosed in our 2022 Form 10-K.

 

The aggregate intrinsic value in the table above represents the total pre-tax intrinsic value (the difference between the company’s closing stock price on the last trading day of the third quarter of 2023 and the exercise price, multiplied by the number of in-the-money options) that would have been received by the option holders had all option holders exercised their options on September 30, 2023. The amount of aggregate intrinsic value will change based on the market value of the company’s stock.

 

 

6.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, marketable securities, accounts receivable, notes receivable, accounts payable and certain other financial instruments (such as accrued expenses, and other current liabilities) included in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets approximates their fair value principally due to the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject us to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash, marketable securities, trade accounts and notes receivable. Our available cash is held in accounts managed by third-party financial institutions. Cash may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, insurance limits. While we monitor cash balances on a regular basis and adjust the balances as appropriate, these balances could be impacted if the underlying financial institutions fail. To date, we have experienced no loss or lack of access to our cash; however, we can provide no assurances that access to our cash will not be impacted by adverse conditions in the financial markets.

 

 

7.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

In determining fair value, the Company uses quoted market prices in active markets. GAAP establishes a fair value measurement framework, provides a single definition of fair value, and requires expanded disclosure summarizing fair value measurements. GAAP emphasizes that fair value is a market-based measurement, not an entity specific measurement. Therefore, a fair value measurement should be determined based on the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.

 

GAAP establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable input be used when available. Observable inputs are based on data obtained from sources independent of the Company that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the company’s assumptions about the estimates market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. 

 

9

 

The hierarchy is measured in three levels based on the reliability of inputs:

 

• Level 1

Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that we have the ability to access. Valuation adjustments and block discounts are not applied to Level 1 instruments.

 

• Level 2

Valuations based on quoted prices in less active, dealer or broker markets.  Fair values are primarily obtained from third party pricing services for identical or comparable assets or liabilities.

 

• Level 3

Valuations derived from other valuation methodologies, including pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques, and not based on market, exchange, dealer, or broker-traded transactions. Level 3 valuations incorporate certain assumptions and projections that are not observable in the market and significant professional judgment is needed in determining the fair value assigned to such assets or liabilities.

 

In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety.

 

The fair value of equity method investments has not been determined as it was impracticable to do so due to the fact that the investee companies are relatively small, early stage private companies for which there is no comparable valuation data available without unreasonable time and expense.

 

The following tables present the fair value hierarchy for assets and liabilities measured at fair value:

The Company classifies money market funds, commercial paper, U.S. government securities, asset-backed securities and corporate securities within Level 1 or Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy because the Company values these investments using quoted market prices or alternative pricing sources and models utilizing market observable inputs.

 

There were no transfers of financial instruments between the fair value hierarchy levels during the nine months ended September 30, 2023.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Leases

 

We have noncancelable operating leases for offices and data centers expiring at various dates through February 2027. These operating leases are included in other long-term assets on the Company's September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 Consolidated Balance Sheets and represent the Company’s right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. The Company’s obligation to make lease payments are included in other current liabilities and long-term lease obligation on the Company's September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 Consolidated Balance Sheets. Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Because the rate implicit in each lease is not readily determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate to determine the present value of the lease payments.

Legal Matters

 

There are no pending or threatened legal proceedings. However, in the ordinary course of business, from time to time we may be involved in various pending or threatened legal actions. The litigation process is inherently uncertain, and it is possible that the resolution of such matters might have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition and/or results of operations. We accrue for unpaid legal fees for services performed to date.

10.

INCOME TAXES

 

We recognize deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are recognized, net of a valuation allowance, for the estimated future tax effects of deductible temporary differences and tax credit carry-forwards. A valuation allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded when, and if, based upon available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

There were no unrecognized tax benefits at September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022. Our policy is to recognize interest and penalties accrued on any unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense. There were no accrued interest or penalties associated with any unrecognized tax benefits, nor was any interest expense recognized during the periods presented. We have determined we have no uncertain tax positions.

 

We file a consolidated U.S. federal income tax return for all subsidiaries in which our ownership equals or exceeds 80%, as well as individual subsidiary returns in various states and foreign jurisdictions. With few exceptions we are no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local or foreign income tax examinations by taxing authorities for returns filed more than three years ago.

Item 2. Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

In addition to historical information, this Form 10-Q may contain forward-looking statements relating to CoreCard. All statements, trend analyses and other information relative to markets for our products and trends in revenue, gross margins and anticipated expense levels, as well as other statements including words such as anticipate, believe, plan, estimate, expect, intend, and other similar expressions, constitute forward-looking statements. Prospective investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties including those factors described below under Factors That May Affect Future Operations, and that actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. CoreCard undertakes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes in future operating results.

 

For purposes of this discussion and analysis, we are assuming and relying upon the readers familiarity with the information contained in Item 7. Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, in the Form 10- K for the year ended December 31, 2022 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Overview

 

CoreCard Corporation, a Georgia corporation, and its predecessor companies have operated since 1973 and its securities have been publicly traded since 1980. In this report, sometimes we use the terms “Company”, “us”, “ours”, “we”, “Registrant” and similar words to refer to CoreCard Corporation and subsidiaries. Our executive offices are located in Norcross, Georgia and our website is www.corecard.com.

 

We are primarily engaged in the business of providing technology solutions and processing services to the financial technology and services market, commonly referred to as the FinTech industry. Our operations are conducted through our affiliate companies located in Romania, India, the United Arab Emirates and Colombia, as well as the corporate office in Norcross, Georgia which provides significant administrative, human resources and executive management support. Corecard’s foreign subsidiaries are CoreCard SRL in Romania, CoreCard Software Pvt Ltd in India, CoreCard Colombia SAS in Colombia and Corecard Software DMCC in the United Arab Emirates, that perform software development and testing as well as processing operations support.

 

Our results vary in part depending on the size and number of software licenses recognized as well as the value and number of professional services contracts recognized in a particular period. As we continue to grow our Processing Services business, we continue to gain economies of scale on the investments we have made in the infrastructure, resources, processes and software features developed over the past number of years to support this growing side of our business. We are adding new processing customers at a faster pace than we are adding new license customers, resulting in steady growth in the processing revenue stream. However, we also receive license revenue and professional services revenue from our largest customer, Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (“Goldman”), referred to as “Customer A” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements. In total, this customer represented 68% and 77% of our consolidated revenues in the first nine months of 2023 and 2022, respectively.

 

On July 20, 2023, we executed an Omnibus Amendment with Goldman covering the following agreements between the Company and Goldman:

 

Software License and Support Agreement, dated as of October 16, 2018 (the “SLSA”);

 

Master Professional Services Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2019 (the “MPSA”, and together with the SLSA, the “Agreements”);

 

Schedule of Work No. 1 to Professional Services Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2019, and Amendment No. 2 to Schedule of Work No. 1, dated as of January 13, 2021 (“SOW 1”); and

 

Schedule of Work No. 2 to Professional Services Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2019, and Amendment No. 2 to Schedule of Work No. 2, dated as of January 13, 2021 (“SOW 2”, and together with SOW 1, the “SOWs”).

 

The Amendment, which was effective as of July 1, 2023, extends the Support Services term of the SLSA through June 30, 2026, and extends the term of the SOWs through June 30, 2025. Among other things, the Amendment also (i) converts the payment terms under SOW 2 from a time and materials basis to a fixed monthly fee with annual adjustments based on changes to the Consumer Price Index, resulting in recurring rather than variable revenue for the Company, and (ii) modifies the service level agreements and related service level credits and recoveries related to defined performance metrics, under the Agreements and SOWs. All other material terms of the Agreements and SOWs, as amended, remain unchanged.

The amount and timing of future revenues from Goldman will be dependent on various factors not in our control such as the number of accounts on file and the level of customization needed by the customer. Our professional services revenue decreased in the third quarter of 2023 primarily due to lower demand from Goldman for our development personnel. We expect a lower level of professional services for the remainder of 2023 and into 2024. License revenue from this customer, similar to other license arrangements, is tiered based on the number of active accounts on the system. Once the customer achieves each tier level, they receive a perpetual license up to that number of accounts; inactive accounts do not count toward the license tier. The customer receives an unlimited perpetual license at a maximum tier level that allows them to utilize the software for any number of active accounts. They previously used the software for a single institution. In the first quarter of 2022 they added an additional customer, resulting in additional one-time license fees. Support and maintenance fees are charged based on the tier level achieved and increase at new tier levels.

 

The infrastructure of our multi customer environment is scalable for the future. A significant portion of our expense is related to personnel, including approximately 1,100 employees located in India, Romania, the United Arab Emirates and Colombia. In October 2020, we opened a new office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to support CoreCard’s expansion of processing services into new markets in the Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and European regions. In October 2021, we opened a new location in Bogotá, Colombia where we are hiring technical personnel to support existing customers and continued growth. Our ability to hire and train employees on our processes and software impacts our ability to onboard new customers and deliver professional services for software customizations. In addition, we have certain corporate office expenses associated with being a public company that impact our operating results.

 

Our revenue fluctuates from period to period and our results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected in future periods. It is difficult to predict the level of consolidated revenue on a quarterly or annual basis for a number of reasons, including the following:

 

Software license revenue in a given period may consist of a relatively small number of contracts and contract values can vary considerably depending on the software product and scope of the license sold. Consequently, even minor delays in delivery under a software contract (which may be out of our control) could have a significant and unpredictable impact on the consolidated revenue that we recognize in a given quarterly or annual period.

 

Customers may decide to postpone or cancel a planned implementation of our software for any number of reasons, which may be unrelated to our software or contract performance, but which may affect the amount, timing and characterization of our deferred and/or recognized revenue.

 

Customers typically require our professional services to modify or enhance their CoreCard software implementation based on their specific business strategy and operational requirements, which vary from customer to customer and period to period.

 

The timing of new processing customer implementations is often dependent on third party approvals or processes which are typically not under our direct control.

 

We continue to maintain a strong cash position. We intend to use cash balances to support the domestic and international operations associated with our CoreCard business and to expand our operations in the FinTech industry through financing the growth of CoreCard and, if appropriate opportunities become available, through acquisitions of businesses in this industry. In April 2021, the Board authorized $10 million for our share repurchase program, all of which has been utilized. We made share repurchases of approximately $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, and $5 million in share repurchases in the nine month period ended September 30, 2022. In May 2022, the Board authorized an additional $20 million for our share repurchase program. We have approximately $16.8 million of authorized share repurchases remaining at September 30, 2023.

 

Results of Operations

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements presented in this quarterly report.

 

14

 

Revenue – Total revenue in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023 was $13,399,000 and $43,847,000, respectively, which represents decreases of 7% percent and 19% percent compared to the respective periods in 2022.

 

Revenue from services was $13,399,000 and $42,053,000 in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, respectively, which represents a decrease of 7% percent and an increase of 6% percent compared to the respective periods in 2022. Revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was lower compared to the third quarter of 2022 due to a decrease in the number and value of professional services contracts completed during the third quarter of 2023, primarily related to lower professional services revenue from our largest customer, Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. This decline was partially offset by increased revenue from transaction processing services and software maintenance and support services in the third quarter of 2023 as compared to the third quarter of 2022 due to an increase in the number of customers and accounts on file. Revenue from transaction processing services, software maintenance and support services, and professional services were greater in the first nine months of 2023 as compared to the first nine months of 2022 due to an increase in the number of customers and accounts on file and an increase in the number and value of professional services contracts completed during the first nine months of 2023. We expect that processing services will continue to grow as our customer base increases; however, the time required to implement new customer programs could be delayed due to third party integration and approval processes and other factors. It is difficult to predict with accuracy the number and value of professional services contracts that our customers will require in a given period. Customers typically request our professional services to modify or enhance their CoreCard software implementation based on their specific business strategy and operational requirements, which vary from customer to customer and period to period.

 

Revenue from products, which is primarily software license fees, was $0 and $1,794,000 in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, respectively, compared to $0 and $14,283,000 in the respective comparable periods of 2022. No new license tiers were achieved in the third quarter of 2023 or 2022. In the first quarter of 2022 our largest customer added a new institution to our platform, resulting in one-time license fees, as discussed above, and multiple new tiers due to the additional active accounts added from a conversion completed in the first quarter of 2022 and account growth from existing customers.

 

Cost of Revenue – Total cost of revenue was 69 percent and 65 percent of total revenue in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, respectively, compared to 58 percent and 44 percent of total revenue in the corresponding periods of 2022. For the three month period ended September 30, 2023, the increase in cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue is primarily driven by hiring offshore technical personnel in India and investments made in our processing infrastructure in 2023, 2022 and previous years  including hardware and software purchases and additional space in our data centers. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2023, the increase as a percentage of revenue is primarily driven by lower license revenue in addition to hiring offshore technical personnel in India and investments in our infrastructure. Cost of revenue includes costs to provide annual maintenance and support services to our installed base of licensed customers, costs to provide professional services, and costs to provide our financial transaction processing services. The cost and gross margins on such revenues can vary considerably from period to period depending on the customer mix, customer requirements and project complexity as well as the mix of our U.S. and offshore employees working on the various aspects of services provided. In addition, we continue to devote the resources necessary to support our growing processing business, including direct costs for regulatory compliance, infrastructure, network certifications and customer support. Investments in our infrastructure in 2023, 2022 and previous years are in anticipation of adding customers in future periods. As such, we will not experience economies of scale unless we add additional customers, as anticipated. This may be subject to change in the future if new regulations or processing standards are implemented causing us to incur additional costs to comply.

 

Operating Expenses – In the three month and nine month period ended September 30, 2023, total operating expenses from consolidated operations were lower by 14% and 20% compared to the corresponding period in 2022, respectively. In the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, total operating expenses from consolidated operations were lower than in the corresponding period in 2022 primarily due to lower development expenses. Development expenses were 20 percent and 32 percent lower in the three and nine month periods in 2023, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2022. In the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023, development expenses were lower mainly due to lower bonus accruals, partially offset by hiring of additional offshore technical personnel. Additionally, we hired onshore and offshore technical personnel to work on the development of an updated platform, a portion of which is capitalized, however amounts not eligible for capitalization result in higher development expenses. General and administrative expenses were 4 percent higher in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023. Marketing expenses decreased 21 percent and increased 3 percent for the three and nine month periods in 2023, respectively. Our client base continues to increase with minimal marketing efforts as we continue to have prospects contact us via online searches; however, we will continue to re-evaluate our marketing expenditures as needed to competitively position the Processing Services business. We added sales personnel in the fourth quarter of 2023 that will result in increased future marketing expenses.

 

Investment Income (Loss) – In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded $1,015,000 and $1,701,000 of investment loss, respectively, compared to investment income of $39,000 and $196,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively. The investment losses in 2023 relate to a third quarter impairment charge on a cost method investment and losses on our equity method investment. Investment income in 2022 relates to income on our equity method investments. Our investments are discussed further in Note 4.

 

15

 

Other Income (Loss) – In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded income of $309,000 and $653,000, respectively, compared to income of $60,000 and $126,000 for the comparable 2022 periods. The increase results from higher interest rates and higher cash balances in the 2023 period.

 

Income Taxes – Our effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 were 24.5 percent and 24.8 percent compared to effective tax rates of 24.6 percent and 25.3 percent for the respective periods in 2022.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our cash and cash equivalent balance at September 30, 2023 was $31,614,000 compared to $20,399,000 at December 31, 2022. During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, cash provided by operations was $18,252,000 compared to cash provided by operations of $10,857,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The increase is primarily due to a lower accounts receivable balance, higher deferred revenue, higher depreciation and amortization and a non-cash impairment charge, partially offset by lower net income and lower accounts payable balances.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, we used $4,845,000 of cash to acquire computer equipment primarily for continued investments in our existing processing environment in the U.S., a new data center in India for international operations and technical resources added in our India office.

 

We expect to have sufficient liquidity from cash on hand as well as projected customer payments to support our operations and capital equipment purchases in the foreseeable future. Currently we expect to use cash in excess of what is required for our current operations for share repurchases and opportunities we believe will expand our FinTech business, as exemplified in transactions described in Notes 3 and 4, although there can be no assurance that appropriate opportunities will arise. In April 2021, the Board authorized $10 million for our share repurchase program, all of which has been utilized. In May 2022, the Board authorized an additional $20 million for share repurchases. We made share repurchases of approximately $1.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, and $5 million of share repurchases in the nine month period ended September 30, 2022. We have approximately $16.8 million of authorized share repurchases remaining at September 30, 2023.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not currently have any off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition, liquidity or results of operations.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our Consolidated Financial Statements which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. We consider certain accounting policies related to revenue recognition and valuation of investments to be critical policies due to the estimation processes involved in each. Management discusses its estimates and judgments with the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors. For a detailed description on the application of these and other accounting policies, see Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. Reference is also made to the discussion of the application of these critical accounting policies and estimates contained in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2022. During the nine-month period ended September 30, 2023, there were no significant or material changes in the application of critical accounting policies.

 

Factors That May Affect Future Operations

 

Future operations are subject to risks and uncertainties that may negatively impact our future results of operations or projected cash requirements. It is difficult to predict future quarterly and annual results with certainty.

 

Among the numerous factors that may affect our consolidated results of operations or financial condition are the following:

 

 

Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., our largest customer, represented 68% of our consolidated revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2023. In the event of material failures to meet contract obligations related to the services provided, there is risk of breach of contract and loss of the customer and related future revenues. Additionally, loss of the customer and related future revenues or a reduction in revenues could result if they or their customers choose an alternative service provider, build an in-house solution, or decide to exit the business or service line that falls under the services that we provide for them.

 

16

 

 

Weakness or instability in the global financial markets could have a negative impact due to potential customers (most of whom perform some type of financial services) delaying decisions to purchase software or initiate processing services.

 

Increased federal and state regulations and reluctance by financial institutions to act as sponsor banks for prospective customers could result in losses and additional cash requirements.

 

Delays in software development projects could cause our customers to postpone implementations or delay payments, which would increase our costs and reduce our revenue and cash.

 

We could fail to deliver software products which meet the business and technology requirements of our target markets within a reasonable time frame and at a price point that supports a profitable, sustainable business model.

 

Our processing business is impacted, directly or indirectly, by more regulations than our licensed software business. If we fail to provide services that comply with (or allow our customers to comply with) applicable regulations or processing standards, we could be subject to financial or other penalties that could negatively impact our business.

 

A security breach in our platform could expose confidential information of our customers’ account holders, hackers could seize our digital infrastructure and hold it for ransom or other cyber risk events could occur and create material losses in excess of our insurance coverage.

 

Software errors or poor-quality control may delay product releases, increase our costs, result in non-acceptance of our software by customers or delay revenue recognition.

 

We could fail to expand our base of customers as quickly as anticipated, resulting in lower revenue and profits and increased cash needs.

 

We could fail to retain key software developers and managers who have accumulated years of know-how in our target markets and company products or fail to attract and train a sufficient number of new software developers and testers to support our product development plans and customer requirements at projected cost levels.

 

Increasing and changing government regulations in the United States and foreign countries related to such issues as data privacy, financial and credit transactions could require changes to our products and services which could increase our costs and could affect our existing customer relationships or prevent us from getting new customers.

 

Delays in anticipated customer payments for any reason would increase our cash requirements and could adversely impact our profits.

 

Competitive pressures (including pricing, changes in customer requirements and preferences, and competitor product offerings) may cause prospective customers to choose an alternative product solution, resulting in lower revenue and profits (or losses).

 

Our future capital needs are uncertain and depend on a number of factors; additional capital may not be available on acceptable terms, if at all.

 

Volatility in the markets, including as a result of political instability, civil unrest, war or terrorism, or pandemics or other natural disasters, such as the recent outbreak of coronavirus, could adversely affect future results of operations and could negatively impact the valuation of our investments.

 

Other general economic and political conditions could cause customers to delay or cancel purchases.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act. Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective. There were no significant changes in the company’s internal control over financial reporting or in other factors identified in connection with this evaluation that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

Part II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

Repurchases of Securities

 

In April 2021, the Board authorized $10 million for our share repurchase program, of which all has been utilized. In May 2022, the Board authorized an additional $20 million for our share repurchase program. Under this program, which was publicly announced in November 2018, we are authorized to repurchase shares through open market purchases, privately-negotiated transactions or otherwise in accordance with applicable federal securities laws, including through Rule 10b5-1 trading plans and under Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act. The repurchase program does not have an expiration date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

Under no circumstances will the Special SLA Payments across all Special SLAs exceed [***]per month and [***]per any given Contract Year.

 

(d)

Recovery of GS Direct Damages.

 

 

(i)

Defined Terms.

If GS or its Affiliates incur any GS Direct Damages, GS may, upon written notice and demand to CoreCard within one hundred twenty (120) days, recover from CoreCard amounts equal to such GS Direct Damages, less any Special SLA Credits provided to GS for the same event that gave rise to such GS Direct Damages. GS shall not seek such recovery with respect to any events causing GS Direct Damages of less than [***]; provided, however, GS shall have the right to seek recovery in connection with a series of related such events that equal an amount greater than [***] in the aggregate.  Such notice and demand will (A) provide a reasonable level of detail about the nature of the GS Direct Damages and how they are the direct result of CoreCard’s failures; and (B) specify whether the GS Direct Damages were incurred under the SLSA or the MPSA. CoreCard may dispute in good faith any such notice and demand in accordance with, as applicable, Section 10.7 of the SLSA or Section 10.7 of the MPSA.

(F)

If there is a material increase or a material decrease to the Managed Services Scope that is expected to continue on a sustained and ongoing basis, the following terms will apply:

 

(1)        For any such material increase, CoreCard will use commercially reasonable efforts to perform the increased scope by using existing CoreCard personnel and resources such that an increase in the Fixed Managed Services Fee is either not necessary or as minimal as practicable;

 

(2)         Subject to the foregoing subsection (F)(1), the Parties will agree to an increase or decrease, as applicable, to the Fixed Managed Services Fee on a going-forward basis pursuant to the change management terms of Section 2.6 of the MPSA and the terms of the following subsection (F)(3).

 

(3)         Such increase or decrease to the Fixed Managed Services Fee will be calculated with reference to: (a) the increased or decreased labor activity of CoreCard personnel (including with respect to changes in personnel mix and hours worked) as reflected in changes to the Managed Services Tracked Hours; and (b) the value of such change in labor activity as determined by applying the time-and-materials rates for Managed Services under the MPSA that are in effect as of the Amendment Effective Date (and for clarity, such rates will have no other purpose under the GS-CoreCard Agreements). Based on the foregoing, CoreCard will propose for GS’s view and comment CoreCard’s proposed changes to the Managed Services Scope and the Fixed Managed Services Fee, which proposal will include a breakdown of increased or decreased hours and related information reflected in the Managed Services Tracked Hours.

 

(4)         All such changes to the Managed Services Scope and the Fixed Managed Services Fee will be documented by the Parties in an amendment executed by the Parties.

Unless otherwise agreed upon by the Parties in connection with renewal discussions, subject to Section 2(e)(ii)(F) above and otherwise notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Amendment or the GS-CoreCard Agreements, the Parties agree that (1) the Fixed Managed Services Fee, the Development Support Fees, and the Support Fee under the SLSA fully compensate CoreCard for its support, maintenance and operational management of the Licensed Software and the Licensed Software’s operating environment, including with respect to the correction of all Defects, code fixes, and non-code-related incidents (i.e., those related to equipment and related systems) as described in the GS-CoreCard Agreements, inclusive of Attachment 2 (Managed Services) to this Amendment; and (2) CoreCard will not seek additional amounts from GS with respect to such support, maintenance and management. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the foregoing does not affect GS’s obligations to pay CoreCard (i) the Installment Loan Amount pursuant to Section 3(b)(vi) of Exhibit A to the SLSA, (ii) the Network Compliance Fee pursuant to Section 6 of Exhibit A to the SLSA, (iii) any fees owed pursuant to the Development SOW, or (iv) any preapproved pass-through expenses.
