Adjusted operating income was $84.8m, up 15% from $73.6m in the previous year.

The segment’s operating income soared 21% to $197.2m from $162.9m a year ago.

In the epay Segment, revenues dropped 3% to $215m on a year-on-year basis.

Operating income at the segment remain almost unchanged at $29.3m.

Euronet chairman and CEO Michael Brown said: “We finished the year strong, delivering fourth quarter adjusted EPS of $1.37, a 21% year-over-year increase. This strong fourth quarter growth included double-digit revenue and adjusted EBITDA contributions from all three segments, together with beneficial income tax expense.

“EFT sustained its growth from continued expansion of our ATM networks.  epay delivered a strong fourth quarter resulting from seasonally strong sales of non-mobile content.  And Money Transfer continued its strong growth trends from success in both the physical and digital channels.”
