Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 20, 2015. For the quarter, the company announced total operating revenues of $372,248,000 compared to $283,944,000 for the same period a year ago. Operating income was $10,206,000 compared to $8,941,000 for the same period a year ago. Income before income tax expense was $7,912,000 compared to $8,338,000 for the same period a year ago.

Net cash used in operating activities was $599,695,000 compared to $411,377,000 for the same period a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA was $30,606,000 compared to $21,559,000 for the same period a year ago.

Free cash flow was $8,191,000 compared to negative free cash flow of $19,952,000 for the same period a year ago. Operating revenues increase was due to a 19% increase in commissions and fees driven primarily by higher closed loop gift card sales; a 99% increase in program, interchange, marketing and other fees due to strong open loop gift card sales and increased marketing revenues in both the U.S. and international retail segments, growth in the incentives and rewards segment, reflecting the acquisition of Parago in late 2014; and a 27% increase in product sales primarily due to growth at Cardpool. The decrease in net income was driven primarily by higher non-cash stock compensation expense, a one-time litigation credit after-tax of $2.3 million recorded in the second quarter of 2014, increased amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, higher acquisition-related interest expense and a higher tax rate, partially offset by an after-tax non-cash credit of $2.5 million for the reduction in contingent consideration related to the acquisition of CardLab.
