DIEBOLD NIXDORF REPORTS 2018 FOURTH QUARTER, FULL-YEAR FINANCIAL RESULTS
NORTH CANTON, Ohio - Diebold Nixdorf, Incorporated (NYSE: DBD), a world leader in enabling connected commerce, today reported its 2018 fourth quarter and full-year financial results.
'The company delivered solid fourth quarter results, as we've built momentum globally in executing our DN Now transformation plans,' said Gerrard Schmid, president and chief executive officer, Diebold Nixdorf. 'Revenue growth was underpinned by strength in Americas Banking and Retail. I am especially pleased with our ability to generate higher profits as we begin to realize the benefits of our DN Now initiatives. Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter increased nearly 21 percent, and the associated margin improved by 140 basis points from the prior year quarter. In addition, we generated strong free cash flow of $250 million due to better profitability, improved inventory management and solid collections. This represents the strongest profit and cash flow performance the company has delivered since the combination of Diebold and Wincor Nixdorf.'
Jeffrey Rutherford, senior vice president and chief financial officer, said, 'We have defined, executable plans that are designed to create longterm, sustainable value. These plans include significant cost reductions and improved net working capital as we realize increased benefits from our global scale. As a result, we are increasing our three-year savings target from $250 million to $400 million. Our DN Now actions are designed to yield returns on invested capital in the mid-teens and produce free cash flow that will reduce our ratio of net debt to trailing 12-months adjusted EBITDA to less than three times by 2021.'
Schmid concluded, 'We are executing on several initiatives to improve our cost structure, intensify customer focus by evolving our connected commerce solutions and significantly improve our financial position. We are confident these plans will improve our financial performance for 2019 and beyond.'

Full-year 2019 Outlook (continuing operations)1
1 - With respect to the company's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA outlook for 2019, it is not providing a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty those items that may affect such measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. These measures primarily exclude the future impact of restructuring actions and net non-routine items. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, net income calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see 'Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures' for additional information regarding our use of non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Information To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including non-GAAP results, adjusted diluted earnings per share, free cash flow/(use), net investment/ (debt), EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP effective tax rate and constant currency results. The company calculates constant currency by translating the prior year results at the current year exchange rate. The company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate our operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. Also, the company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in establishing operational goals. The company also believes providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, helps investors evaluate our operating and financial performance and trends in our business, consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. The company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful to investors in comparing its performance to the performance of other companies, although its non-GAAP financial measures are specific to the company and the non-GAAP financial measures of other companies may not be calculated in the same manner. We provide EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that investors and securities analysts will find EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to be useful measures for evaluating our operating performance and comparing our operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. We are also providing EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in light of our credit agreement and 8.5% senior notes due 2024. For more information, please refer to the section, 'Notes for Non-GAAP Measures.'

Notes for Non-GAAP Measures To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including non-GAAP results, adjusted diluted earnings per share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow/(use) and net investment/(debt). The tables below have been updated to reflect the immaterial error corrections noted in the condensed consolidated statements of operations, condensed consolidated statements of balance sheets and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows where appropriate.
Restructuring expenses relate to the business transformation plan focused on driving connected commerce, finance, sales and operational excellence, business integration and global workforce alignment. Non-routine income/ expense relate to non-cash impairments associated with goodwill and legacy Diebold software. Legal, consulting and deal expenses primarily related to the mark-to-mark impact on Wincor Nixdorf stock options and fees paid by the company in connection with ongoing obligations related to prior regulatory settlements, including the cost of acquisition, integration and divestiture expenses. The acquisition integration expenses primarily relate to the integration of Wincor Nixdorf, which was acquired in August 2016. The Wincor Nixdorf purchase accounting adjustments relate to the valuation of deferred revenue, inventory and intangible asset charges as management believes that this is useful information to investors by highlighting the impact of the acquisition of Wincor Nixdorf on the company's operations. The inventory charge relates to the company's re-assessment of primarily finished goods and service parts due to contract cancellations and excess and obsolete inventory due to streamlining the company's product portfolio and optimizing its manufacturing footprint. Other includes the gain on the sale of buildings, certain non-cash balance sheet adjustments in Canada and Hong Kong, amounts related to the Brazil indirect tax matter and executive severance related to the CEO and CFO.

2. Reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA measures (Dollars in millions):
We define EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding income tax benefit, net interest, and depreciation and amortization expense. As defined in the company's credit agreement, Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA before the effect of the following items: share-based compensation, foreign exchange (gain) loss net, miscellaneous net, equity in (earnings) loss of unconsolidated subsidiaries, net, restructuring expenses and non-routine expenses net, as outlined in Note 1 of the non-GAAP measures. In order to remain comparable to the U.S. GAAP depreciation and amortization measures and avoid duplication, the company reclassified $24.7 and $29.0, respectively, from non-routine expenses, net to the depreciation and amortization caption in the Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation for the three month periods ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $113.2 and $128.4 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Deferred financing fees amortization is included in interest expense and GAAP depreciation and amortization; to avoid duplication, deferred financing fees amortization of $5.1 and $2.5 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $13.7 and $10.2 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, were removed from the depreciation and amortization caption. This represents the reconciliation between the amounts presented in note 1 and Adjusted EBITDA. Miscellaneous, net primarily consists of company-owned life insurance contracts. These are non-GAAP financial measurements used by management to enhance the understanding of our operating results. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are key measures we use to evaluate our operational performance. We provide EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we believe that investors and securities analysts will find EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be useful measures for evaluating our operating performance and comparing our operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures, and working capital requirements. However, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to net income as a measure of operating results or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity in accordance with GAAP.
3. Reconciliation of diluted GAAP EPS to non-GAAP EPS from continuing operations measures:

Restructuring expenses relate to the business transformation plan focused on driving connected commerce, finance, sales and operational excellence, business integration and global workforce alignment. Non-routine income/ expense relate to non-cash impairments associated with goodwill and legacy Diebold software. Legal, consulting and deal expenses primarily related to the mark-to-mark impact on Wincor Nixdorf stock options and fees paid by the company in connection with ongoing obligations related to prior regulatory settlements, including the cost of acquisition, integration and divestiture expenses. The acquisition integration expenses primarily relate to the integration of Wincor Nixdorf, which was acquired in August 2016. The Wincor Nixdorf purchase accounting adjustments relate to the valuation of deferred revenue, inventory and intangible asset charges as management believes that this is useful information to investors by highlighting the impact of the acquisition of Wincor Nixdorf on the company's operations. The inventory charge relates to the company's re-assessment of primarily finished goods and service parts due to contract cancellations and excess and obsolete inventory due to streamlining the company's product portfolio and optimizing its manufacturing footprint. Exit activities related to the Aisino strategic alliance in China are included in equity in (earnings) loss of unconsolidated subsidiaries. Other includes the gain on the sale of buildings, certain non-cash balance sheet adjustments in Canada and Hong Kong, amounts related to the Brazil indirect tax matter, and executive severance related to the CEO and CFO.
4. Free cash flow/(use) is calculated as follows (Dollars in millions):
We define free cash flow (use) as net cash used by operating activities less capital expenditures. We consider free cash flow (use) to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that, after the purchase of property and equipment, can be used for debt servicing, strategic opportunities, including investing in the business, making strategic acquisitions, strengthening the balance sheet and paying dividends.
5. Net debt is calculated as follows (Dollars in millions):
The company's management believes that given the significant cash, cash equivalents and other investments on its balance sheet that net cash against outstanding debt is a meaningful net debt calculation. More than 90% of the company's cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments reside in international tax jurisdictions for all periods presented.
