*Throughout this release, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP EPS, and non-GAAP Net Income for all periods presented are non-GAAP measures intended to provide useful information that supplements IDT's or the relevant segment's core results in accordance with GAAP.  Please refer to the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this release for an explanation of these terms and their respective reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. 

** The spin-off did not meet the criteria to be reported as a discontinued operation and accordingly, Rafael Holdings' assets, liabilities, results of operations and cash flows have not been reclassified.

REMARKS BY SHMUEL JONAS, CEO OF IDT CORPORATION 
"The spin-off of Rafael Holdings in March marked another important step in our effort to maximize long-term stockholder value. Following the spin-off, we implemented a restructuring to reduce SG&A expense by over $2 million per quarter -  offsetting potential reductions in gross profit generated by our mature retail and wholesale businesses while facilitating continued investment in our growth initiatives.

"Financial results this quarter were overall consistent with recent trends. Our revenue decrease was primarily the result of a loss of high volume but low margin wholesale carrier minutes and had no significant impact on our gross profit. Although our bottom line reflected $3.7 million in severance expense, overall it was good quarter. We were happy with the revenue growth generated by our early-stage business initiatives and the relative resilience of our core BOSS Revolution calling service. 

"This quarter, we launched BOSS Revolution® Mobile with a compelling offer of just $5 per month per line and pay-only-for-what-you-use voice, messaging and data – capped at $39 per month. We have invested a significant amount of time and financial resources to develop our BOSS Revolution Mobile platform. We are hopeful that this substantial investment will pay off for our business.

"Our National Retail Solutions business continues to grow its retail point-of-sale terminal network adding about one thousand units this quarter.  We also signed deals with large market research and advertising firms.  Our POS network offers market research firms valuable insights into certain market segments, while our in-store screens tap into the large market for digital out-of-home advertising.  

"Our BOSS Revolution online money transfer business continued its rapid growth and is now larger than our retailer-based transfer business and generating stronger margins.  However, we continued to struggle with money transfer in retail stores.  Our low fee pricing model that we recently introduced has not yet had the positive effect that we were hoping for.

"Finally, our net2phone cloud-based business communications service is growing impressively.   Following the successful launches in Brazil and Argentina in 2017, net2phone expanded its offering to Colombia in May, and we plan to launch in Hong Kong and Mexico later this calendar year."

Telecom & Payment Services (TPS)  
TPS is comprised of communications and payment offerings grouped in three broad verticals: Retail Communications, Wholesale Carrier Services and Payment Services.  Effective 1Q18, TPS' Retail Communications vertical also includes the results of IDT's Consumer Phone Services (CPS) which had been previously reported as a separate segment.  Effective 3Q18, TPS includes a small business that was previously reported in All Other.  All comparative prior periods have been adjusted to conform to the current presentation.  The TPS segment contributed 97.5% of IDT's consolidated revenue in 3Q18 and 97.8% in 3Q17.

TPS' 3Q18 revenue decreased 1.6% year-over-year to $356.4 million as declines in both Retail Communications' and Wholesale Carrier Services' revenues were partially offset by a strong increase in Payment Services' revenue.  When comparing sequential quarterly results, note that the third quarter had three fewer days (3.3%) than the second quarter.

Retail Communications:  IDT's flagship BOSS Revolution calling service – which accounted for over 90% of Retail Communications' revenue in 3Q18 - continued to be negatively impacted by persistent, market-wide trends including the proliferation of unlimited calling plans offered by wireless carriers and MVNOs, increasing penetration of free and paid over-the-top voice and messaging services and decreased immigration into the U.S.  These factors contributed to a 3.6% reduction in BOSS Revolution calling service's revenue compared to the year ago quarter.  Revenue from other Retail Communications offerings, including the sale of traditional 'hard' prepaid calling cards in the U.S. and overseas, continued to decline in line with expectations.

Wholesale Carrier Services:  Wholesale Carrier Services' revenue decreased largely as a result of diminished volumes on certain heavily trafficked, low revenue-per-minute routes. Wholesale Carrier Services' revenue has historically been more volatile than Retail Communications' revenue, and changes in revenue do not necessarily generate corresponding changes in gross profit.

Payment Services:  Payment Services' revenue increased year-over-year primarily reflecting growth in mobile top-up sales, which comprised nearly 90% of Payment Services' revenue in 3Q18.  Sales generated by the BOSS Revolution money transfer service - primarily from its direct-to-consumer offering (app and web) - and from National Retail Solutions' (NRS) merchant services and out-of-home advertising offerings also increased. 

TPS' direct cost of revenue expressed as a percentage of revenue decreased to 85.3% from 86.1%.  This improvement reflects the decrease in wholesale carrier revenues generated on certain low margin routes, stronger margins on sales of the Boss Revolution international voice service, and the increased margin contributions generated by the rapid growth of NRS and our money transfer businesses.

TPS' SG&A expense - $41.4 million – increased 3.0% from 3Q17, primarily as a result of increased employee compensation and credit card processing charges.  Expressed as a percentage of revenue, TPS' SG&A expense increased to 11.6% from 11.1% in the year ago quarter. 

Following the spin-off of Rafael Holdings on March 26th, IDT initiated a significant restructuring program that, once fully implemented, is expected to reduce the Company's SG&A by over $2 million per quarter.  The reduction in SG&A will be predominantly in the TPS segment.   TPS severance expense incurred as a result of the restructuring was $3.6 million in 3Q18 compared to nil in 3Q17.

TPS' income from operations decreased to $3.1 million from $6.0 million in 3Q17 primarily as a result of the severance charge.  Adjusted EBITDA increased to $10.9 million from $10.1 million in 3Q17 as the impact of the decrease in the direct cost of revenue more than offset the increase in SG&A expense and the decrease in revenue.

net2phone - Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)  
The net2phone-UCaaS segment is comprised of offerings from IDT's net2phone division, including its cloud communications and SIP trunking offerings for businesses, and its cable telephony service.

net2phone-UCaaS' 3Q18 revenue increased to $9.1 million from $7.4 million in 3Q17, driven by the rapid growth in its cloud-based communications offerings in the US and South America. 

net2phone-UCaaS' 3Q18 loss from operations was $769 thousand compared to a loss from operations of $456 thousand in 3Q17, reflecting increased sales commissions and personnel costs. IDT continues to invest in net2phone's long-term growth by developing the proprietary technologies that power net2phone's unified cloud communications offerings and by front-loading commissions and other sales expenses incurred in customer acquisition.

All Other 
For 3Q18, All Other included only the Company's real estate holdings and other investments that were included in the March 26, 2018 spin-off of Rafael Holdings to IDT stockholders. A small business that was previously included in All Other has been reclassified to the TPS segment, and certain other cost centers have been reclassified to Corporate overhead.  Comparative results have been reclassified and restated as if this business and costs were included in TPS or Corporate in all periods presented.

All Other's financial results for 3Q18 were consistent with expectations.

Corporate 
Corporate loss from operations in 3Q18 was $2.9 million, including other operating expense of $0.3 million in legal costs compared to $11.9 million in 3Q17, including other operating expense of $10.1 million resulting from a legal settlement and associated legal costs.

DIVIDEND  
IDT's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.09 per share of IDT's Class A and Class B common stock for 3Q18 to be paid on or about June 29, 2018 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on June 19th.  This distribution will be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 and 2017

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), IDT also disclosed, for 3Q18, 2Q18 and 3Q17, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share, which are non-GAAP measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

IDT's measure of Adjusted EBITDA consists of revenues less direct cost of revenues and selling, general and administrative expense. Another way of calculating Adjusted EBITDA is to start with (loss) income from operations, and add depreciation and amortization, severance expense and other operating expense.

IDT's measure of non-GAAP net income starts with net (loss) income in accordance with GAAP and adds severance expense, stock-based compensation, and other operating expense, and subtracts the income tax benefit from The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

IDT's measure of non-GAAP earnings per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by the basic or diluted weighted-average shares.

These additions and subtractions are non-cash and/or non-routine items in the relevant fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017 periods.

Management believes that IDT's Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses and non-routine gains and losses that may not be indicative of IDT's or the relevant segment's core operating results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, as a relevant indicator of core operational strengths in its financial and operational decision making. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share to evaluate operating performance in relation to IDT's competitors. Disclosure of these financial measures may be useful to investors in evaluating performance and allows for greater transparency to the underlying supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, IDT has historically reported similar financial measures and believes such measures are commonly used by readers of financial information in assessing performance, therefore the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in financial reporting at this time.

Management refers to Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the GAAP measures (loss) income from operations and net (loss) income, on a segment and/or consolidated level to facilitate internal and external comparisons to the segments' and IDT's historical operating results, in making operating decisions, for budget and planning purposes, and to form the basis upon which management is compensated.

While depreciation and amortization are considered operating costs under GAAP, these expenses primarily represent the non-cash current period allocation of costs associated with long-lived assets acquired or constructed in prior periods. IDT's Adjusted EBITDA, which is exclusive of depreciation and amortization, is a useful indicator of its current performance.

Severance expense is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share. Severance expense is reflective of decisions made by management in each period regarding the aspects of IDT's and its segments' businesses to be focused on in light of changing market realities and other factors. While there may be similar charges in other periods, the nature and magnitude of these charges can fluctuate markedly and do not reflect the performance of IDT's core and continuing operations.

Other operating expense is a component of (loss) income from operations. In fiscal 2018, other operating expense included legal fees related to Straight Path Communications Inc.'s stockholders' putative class action and derivative complaint, and fees related to other legal matters. In fiscal 2017, other operating expense included an expense for the settlement and mutual release, and the associated legal fees, related to potential liabilities and claims under agreements related to the Straight Path spin-off. Other operating expense is excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share. From time-to-time, IDT may incur costs related to non-routine legal and regulatory matters. However, such legal and regulatory matters do not occur each quarter. IDT does not believe the gains or losses from non-routine legal and regulatory matters are components of IDT's or the relevant segment's core operating results.

The other calculation of Adjusted EBITDA consists of revenues less direct cost of revenues and selling, general and administrative expense. As the other excluded items are not reflected in this calculation, they are excluded automatically and there is no need to make additional adjustments. This calculation results in the same Adjusted EBITDA amount and its utility and significance is as explained above.

Stock-based compensation recognized by IDT and other companies may not be comparable because of the variety of types of awards as well as the various valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions that are permitted under GAAP. Stock-based compensation is excluded from IDT's calculation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share because management believes this allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons of the operating results per share of IDT's core business with the results of other companies. However, stock-based compensation will continue to be a significant expense for IDT for the foreseeable future and an important part of employees' compensation that impacts their performance.

In 2Q18, IDT recorded an income tax benefit of $3.3 million for its anticipated AMT credit refund due to The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted in December 2017. This income tax benefit is excluded from IDT's calculation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share because the benefit was not directly related to the current results of IDT's core operations.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, (loss) income from operations, cash flow from operating activities, net (loss) income, basic and diluted earnings per share or other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, IDT's measurements of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Beginning in the 3Q18, All Other includes only IDT's real estate holdings and other investments that were included in the Rafael Holdings spin-off. Other smaller businesses that were previously included in All Other have been reclassified to Telecom & Payment Services, and certain other cost centers have been reclassified to Corporate. Comparative results have been reclassified and restated as if these businesses and costs were included in Telecom & Payment Services or Corporate in all periods presented.

Following are reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which are, (a) for Adjusted EBITDA, (loss) income from operations for IDT's reportable segments and net (loss) income for IDT on a consolidated basis, (b) for non-GAAP net income, net (loss) income and, (c) for non-GAAP earnings per share, basic and diluted earnings per share.
