Customers Quick to Embrace the Power of USA Technologies Expanded Portfolio

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:USAT), a premier payment technology service provider of integrated cashless and mobile transactions in the self-service retail market, today announced that three companies have already signed agreements to adopt the performance optimization elements of USAT's newly acquired end-to-end enterprise services: Seed Pro and Seed Office. Canteen franchisees Southern Vending and RDS Vending, LLC, along with Miami Vending Machines, have signed agreements to add USAT's newly acquired Seed Office VMS and Seed Pro analytics software into their existing USAT cashless payment services to improve efficiency, achieve scalability, and maximize the investment they have already made in USAT's market-leading ePort Connect platform.

USAT completed the acquisition of Cantaloupe Systems, including its Seed Office and Seed Pro services on November 9, 2017, adding logistics, dynamic route scheduling, automated pre-kitting, responsive merchandising, inventory management, warehouse and accounting management to its existing portfolio of cashless payment, loyalty and consumer engagement services. The combined portfolio is designed to provide an enterprise system for self-service unattended retail businesses like vending.

USAT believes that the customer response to its new, combined offering validates the synergies between Cantaloupe Systems and USAT, and demonstrates the enhanced value that the combined platform brings to existing customers looking to increase efficiencies and leverage their current relationship with USAT as a one-stop service provider.

"We have seen an immediate, positive response to the newly acquired services, and have been working diligently with customers to educate them on the availability of Seed Pro and Seed Office and what the expanded USAT portfolio means for them," said Michael K. Lawlor, Chief Services Officer, USA Technologies (News - Alert). "We believe these initial commitments to layer the Seed Pro and Seed Office software onto existing USAT connections represent the tip of the iceberg, with more customers anticipated to come on board later this month. We are encouraged that our customers recognize the value of the best-in-class logistics software that we acquired through Cantaloupe, and the ability to add it to their current portfolio of USAT services through one, combined company. We are pleased to be able to add more value for our customers as our businesses grow together."

USA Technologies recently reported a 37 percent increase in net new connections and a 19 percent year-over-year increase in revenue, marking the 32nd consecutive quarter of growth for the company.
