Fourth Quarter Highlights

VeriFone entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire Hypercom Corporation. The acquisition, which would help accelerate VeriFone's global expansion in key international markets, is subject to approval by Hypercom shareholders and customary regulatory approvals, and is anticipated to close in the second half of 2011.

VeriFone and Gemalto N.V. entered into a strategic partnership to jointly explore opportunities to accelerate EMV payment adoption, particularly for the U.S. market. VeriFone continues to engage in exclusive discussions to acquire Gemalto’s point-of-sale (POS) solutions business and for Gemalto to become VeriFone’s preferred machine-to-machine wireless module supplier.

VeriFone and First Data Corporation announced their intent to offer a VeriFone edition of the First Data® TransArmorSM security solution to U.S. multi-lane and petroleum merchants. This will enable businesses using VeriFone's MX 800 series of devices, Secure PumpPay and the Ruby POS solutions to take advantage of a complete security solution combining VeriFone's VeriShield encryption with tokenization technology from RSA, the Security Division of EMC Corporation.

VeriFone partnered with PayPal to expand PayPal payment acceptance in the mobile environment. Upon completion of the planned integration of PayPal payment technology with VeriFone's PAYware Mobile card encryption sleeve for the iPhone, traditional card-based payments using PAYware Mobile will be supported by PayPal acceptance.

FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and its attachments include several non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net revenues; non-GAAP cost of net revenues; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP operating income; non-GAAP interest expense; non-GAAP interest income; non-GAAP other income (expense); non-GAAP income before income taxes; non-GAAP provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP net income per share as well as these non-GAAP financial measures as a percentage of net revenues. In order to assist investors, this press release provides consolidated statement of operations information on a non-GAAP basis, reflecting the adjustments made in the non-GAAP measures listed above.

Reconciliations for the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release are provided at the end of this press release.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures help it to evaluate VeriFone’s performance and to compare VeriFone’s current results with those for prior periods as well as with the results of peer companies. VeriFone’s competitors may, due to differences in capital structure and investment history, record certain income and expense items, including interest, tax, depreciation, amortization, and other non-cash expenses, that differ significantly from VeriFone’s, in a manner that VeriFone’s management believes does not reflect underlying operating performance that is comparable to VeriFone’s. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in VeriFone’s budget and planning process. Management also believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors in comparing VeriFone’s operating performance in any period with its performance in other periods and with the performance of other companies that represent alternative investment opportunities. These non-GAAP financial measures contain limitations and should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, disclosures made in accordance with GAAP.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and may therefore differ from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect all amounts and costs, such as employee stock-based compensation costs, cash that may be expended for future capital expenditures or contractual commitments, working capital needs, cash used to service interest or principal payments on VeriFone’s debt, income taxes and the related cash requirements, and restructuring charges, associated with VeriFone’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Furthermore, VeriFone expects to continue to incur income and expense items that are similar to those that are eliminated in the non-GAAP adjustments described herein. Management compensates for these limitations by also relying on the comparable GAAP financial measures.

Note A: Acquisition Related Expenses. VeriFone adjusts certain revenues and expenses that are the result of acquisitions. These adjustments include the amortization of purchased intangible assets and step-down in deferred revenue on acquisition but do not include the fair value adjustments relating to certain contracts acquired as part of an acquisition. These contracts are ones whereby third parties have yet to fulfill their contractual obligations. In addition, we adjust for the settlements of contingencies established at time of acquisition and other acquisition related charges (such as integration charges and certain interest charges). Acquisition related charges also result from events which arise from unforeseen circumstances which often occur outside of the ordinary course of business. Accordingly, VeriFone analyzes the performance of its operations without regard to such expenses. In determining whether any acquisition related revenue or expense adjustment is appropriate, VeriFone takes into consideration, among other things, how such adjustment would or would not aid the understanding of the performance of its operations.

Note B: Other Charges. VeriFone excludes certain expenses that are the result of either unique or unplanned events which are noted below. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these expenses may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. Impairment charges represent non-cash charges, such as impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, which are not reflective of the operational performance of our business. Post-restatement incremental professional services fees include those fees that are incurred for incremental procedures for preparation, review and audit of financial information prior to remediation of any deficiencies, including material weaknesses, in our internal control over financial reporting, and to assist in remediation. These incremental fees enable management to conclude that our consolidated financial statements are in accordance with GAAP. In the case of legal fees for significant litigation and gain or loss on legal settlements, these fees and gains or losses are typically recorded in or around the period in which the matter is concluded or resolved even if the subject matter of the underlying dispute may relate to multiple or different periods. As such, we believe that including these expenses would not necessarily reflect the underlying performance of our business for the periods in which they are incurred. Restructuring charges and gain on extinguishment of debt, which result from unforeseen circumstances and typically occur outside of the ordinary course of business, are excluded from cost of net revenues and operating expenses. In addition, we exclude non-cash interest expense recorded relating to the adoption of ASC 470-20, Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May Be Settled in Cash Upon Conversion (including partial cash settlement). Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, excluding the effect of these transactions promotes comparability of our non-GAAP financial results with prior and future periods and best reflects our on-going operations. Foreign currency translation gains or losses related to income or expenses which are excluded in the non-GAAP financial measures are excluded from other income (expense). We believe that it is appropriate to be consistent in the treatment of the underlying transaction and related currency gains or losses. VeriFone also believes providing financial information with and without the income tax effect of excluding items related to our non-GAAP financial measures, provides our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the on-going performance and future liquidity of our business. Because of these factors, we assess our operating performance with these amounts included and excluded, and by providing this information, we believe that users of our financial statements are better able to understand the financial results of what we consider to be our continuing operations.

Note C: Restatement Expense. Our Non-GAAP financial measures eliminate the impact of restatement expenses. On December 3, 2007, we announced that our management had identified errors in accounting related to the valuation of in-transit inventory and allocation of manufacturing and distribution overhead to inventory for our fiscal year ended October 31, 2007. Restatement expenses include the cost of the Audit Committee’s independent investigation and professional services expenses incurred to prepare, review and audit restated financial statements for our fiscal year ended October 31, 2007. VeriFone believes excluding these expenses in our non-GAAP measures promotes comparability of our non-GAAP financial results with prior and future periods and best reflects our on-going operations.

Note D: Stock-Based Compensation Related Items. Our non-GAAP financial measures eliminate the effect of expense for stock-based compensation because they are non-cash expenses that management believes are not reflective of ongoing operating results. In particular, because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types which affect the calculations of stock-based compensation, we believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation allows for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to our peer companies. Stock-based compensation is very different from other forms of compensation. A cash salary or bonus has a fixed and unvarying cash cost. In contrast the expense associated with an award of an option is unrelated to the amount of compensation ultimately received by the employee; and the cost to the company is based on valuation methodology and underlying assumptions that may vary over time and does not reflect any cash expenditure by the company. Furthermore, the expense associated with granting an employee an option is spread over multiple years and may be reversed based on forfeitures which may differ from our original assumptions unlike cash compensation expense which is typically recorded contemporaneously with the time of award or payment.

Note E: Non-GAAP Net Income per Share Items. VeriFone provides basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per share. The basic non-GAAP net income per share amount was calculated based on our non-GAAP net income and the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the reporting period. The diluted non-GAAP net income per share included additional dilution from potential issuance of common stock, except when such issuances would be anti-dilutive.
