Richard Stern, President and CEO of TRM Corporation, stated, "The first quarter of 2009 was the first true quarter in some time where our performance was not impacted by the complicating factors that affected our results in prior periods. We have completed most of our restructuring and integration efforts, we are operating fairly close to what can be described as an "end state" condition, and we continue to show significant improvement in all areas. Most impressive was $1.3 million of Adjusted EBITDA, representing a 160.0% improvement over the first quarter of 2008. In addition, we increased Sales by 22.6%, reduced Cost of Sales by 23.4%, and improved Gross Profit by 37.0%. As a result, we generated operating income of $847,000 which is a 500.0% improvement compared to the same period in 2008."

First Quarter 2009 Financial Results
In the first quarter of 2009, net sales were $7.3 million compared to $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2008. The slight reduction in net sales compared to first quarter of 2008 reflects the unusually high parts and service revenue experienced in 2008 due to the impact of the Company's Triple Des upgrade program. On a sequential basis, net sales were $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2009 as compared to $6.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. This increase over the immediately preceding quarter reflects the consistency of surcharge and interchange revenue along with improved sales from the placement of new units. In addition, compared to the fourth quarter 2008, the Company experienced an increase in average surcharge per withdrawal due to customers' willingness to raise the surcharge at many locations and improved withdrawals per terminal per month reflecting improved uptimes, removal of low performing units and seasonality. The average number of transacting ATMs was 11,425 during the first quarter of 2009 compared to an average of 11,649 during the fourth quarter of 2008. During the first quarter of 2009, the Company actively sought to remove lower performing machines to improve overall operational results.
Cost of sales in the first quarter of 2009 decreased 23.4% to $3.6 million from $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2008 and remained substantially flat compared with the fourth quarter of 2008. In the first quarter of 2009, gross profit as a percentage of net sales improved to 50.6% from 36.4% in the first quarter of 2008 and from 47.0% in the fourth quarter of 2008. The largest savings was from the cost of vault cash which decreased by $517,000 to $465,000 from the first quarter of 2008 and by $267,000 from the fourth quarter of 2008.
Selling, general and administrative expense as a percentage of net sales decreased to 38.3% for the first quarter of 2009 as compared to 39.1% in the first quarter of 2008 and 42.6% in the fourth quarter of 2008 (adjusted to exclude a one time goodwill impairment charge of $19.8 million).
In the first quarter of 2009, TRM reported operating income of $847,000 compared to an operating loss of $169,000 in the first quarter of 2008 and operating income of $270,000 in the fourth quarter of 2008 (excluding a one time goodwill impairment charge of $19.8 million). The Company reported a net loss of $660,000 in the first quarter of 2009 compared to a net loss of $436,000 in the first quarter of 2008 and $1.1 million net loss in the fourth quarter of 2008 (excluding a one time goodwill impairment charge of $19.8 million). The net loss in the first quarter of 2009 included a $185,000 non-cash charge associated with a change in the accounting treatment of warrants.
For the first quarter of 2009, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $1.3 million compared to $521,000 in the first quarter of 2008 which reflect the positive effects of the Company's acquisition of Access to Money and its continued efforts to drive efficiencies and reduce costs.
TRM Corporation had cash and restricted cash of $7.0 million at March 31, 2009, compared to $6.5 million at December 31, 2008.
Michael Dolan, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, stated, "Our continued focus on the key metrics and core drivers of the business are evident in our financial results. We are continuing our efforts to analyze transactional statistics at the micro level and install the operating systems and analytical tools needed to further improve our results. Profitability at the individual machine level and costs per transaction including processing, armored car, maintenance and support and cash deployment are critical to our success and remain as target areas of review throughout 2009."
Highlights from the Quarter and Subsequent Events
Richard Stern concluded, "We continue to show the positive results from the initiatives that we began last year. As we move through 2009, we expect the benefits of seasonality and our continued operational focus will be reflected in strong financial performance in future periods."

All statements other than statements of historical facts included herein, including without limitation, statements regarding our future financial position, business strategy, budgets, projected sales, projected costs and plans and objective of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "expects," "intends," "plans," "projects," "estimates," "anticipates," or "believes" or the negative thereof or any variation there on or similar terminology or expressions. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from results proposed in such statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include, but are not limited to: a decline in ATM transaction volume or fees, changes in technology standards, regulatory changes, increases in interest rates, the inability to obtain cash for our ATMs, and statements of assumption underlying any of the foregoing, as well as other factors set forth under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and other filings with the SEC.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This earnings release and the accompanying financial tables include both financial measures in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, as well as non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measure we refer to as Adjusted EBITDA is presented in Attachment 3 below and represents net earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, change in warrant value, stock-based compensation, and certain non-recurring expenses.
We use Adjusted EBITDA as an additional measure of our overall performance for purposes of business decision-making, developing budgets and managing expenditures. It is useful because it removes the impact of our capital structure (interest expense), fair value adjustment of warrants, asset base (amortization and depreciation), stock-based compensation expenses, taxes, and certain non-recurring expenses from our results of operations. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in their analysis of our results of operations for reasons similar to the reasons why we find it useful and because these measures enhance their overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects of our ongoing business operations. By reporting Adjusted EBITDA, we provide a basis for comparison of our business operations between current, past and future periods, and peer companies in our industry.
A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 is set forth in Attachment 3.
