USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), a leader of wireless, cashless payment
and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing industries
today announced that Veronica Rosa, Vice President of Corporate Communications
and Investor Relations has been selected by the ranking committee of ExecRank
as a “Top Communications Executive” for 2012. The rankings are the result of
two years of research and feedback from evaluation committees and top Chief
Communications Officers that yielded an algorithm for how to rank
communications executives based on their performance in 24 key areas.

Chairman and CEO of USA Technologies, Stephen P. Herbert, commented,
“Veronica’s top five ranking, surrounded by well-recognized brands such as
Facebook, Sprint Nextel Corporation and eBay Inc., is a wonderful achievement
to be celebrated by the entire USA Technologies team. We have a very high
commitment level to communication with our shareholders and other
constituencies, so recognition in this regard is very important to us.
Veronica’s energy, skill and approach to integrated communications are
integral to our business objectives and culture.”

According to Adam Navrozally, Analyst for the rankings division of ExecRank,
“Ms. Rosa has a strong record of success in strategic communications and
investor relations, most recently at USA Technologies. Her strong leadership
has helped further her company’s reputation as a leader in electronic
payments. She is highly regarded in her field, and among other Communication
Executives.”

Veronica Rosa is responsible for USA Technologies’ integrated communications
program including public relations, media and investor relations efforts. She
joined USA Technologies in February 2012. Ms. Rosa’s experience, which extends
from Fortune 500 to small cap companies as well as “Big 4” public accounting,
includes over 25 years in investor relations, corporate communication and
finance.

ExecRank indicates that there are over 15,000 Chief Communications Officers
and Communications Executives at publicly traded companies in the United
States. The number one area of focus for ExecRank’s Top Communications
Executives in 2012 was their ability to integrate the multitude of
communication platforms and ensure the consistency and accuracy of the
information circulated regarding their company. ExecRank also weighed heavily
the sentiment of the investment community surrounding these companies, as it
believes that investor relations is a crucial component of corporate
communications. In addition, ExecRank saw a significant uptick in the number
of Communications Executives that serve as members of their company’s board
and displayed a skill set that is applicable to multiple industries.
