Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Photographer: Michael Nagle/Bloomberg © 2018 Bloomberg Finance LP Deal Overview On August 16, 2023, NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR, $29.84, Market Capitalisation: $4.2 billion), a leading enterprise technology provider for retail stores, restaurants, and self-directed banking, announced that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has declared effective the registration statement on form 10 filed by NCR Atleos (Spin-Off). Post-spin-off, NCR RemainCo will be named NCR Voyix, focused on digital commerce business, and NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) will focus on ATM business. As per the amended Form 10, each NCR shareholder would receive one share of NCR Atleos common stock for every two shares of NCR common stock held at the close of business on the record date, and NCR Atleos is expected to list its common stock on NYSE under the symbol “NATL”. The Company continues to expect the spin-off to be completed by the end of 4Q23, while information regarding the record date and distribution date will be provided in due course. After completing the proposed spin-off, NCR Voyix (RemainCo) will focus on the digital commerce business, continuing to operate its Retail, Hospitality, and Digital Banking businesses. NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) will include ATMfocused businesses, including Self-Service Banking, Payments & Network, and Telecommunications & Technology businesses. Moreover, NCR has announced to host Investor Days for NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) and NCR Voyix (RemainCo) on September 5, 2023. NCR Corporation and Price Performance Spin-Off Research Valuation We value NCR Corporation (NCR) using the 2024e EV/EBITDA methodology by valuing NCR Voyix (Stub) and NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) separately. Our intrinsic value of $24.00 for NCR (Stub) is based on a 2024e EV/EBITDA multiple of 9.2x (Previously: 9.5x) for the digital commerce business (~4% discount to its peer multiple of 9.6x). Our fair value estimate for NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) stands at $22.00 per share based on the 2024e EV/EBITDA multiple of 5.1x (Previously: 5.3x) to ATM business (~13% discount to multiple of Euronet). We arrive at a consolidated target price of $35.00 per share (Previously: $37.00) for NCR Corporation, which implies a potential upside of 17.3% from the current market price of $29.84 as of 8/18. We, thereby, retain our ‘Buy’ rating on the stock. Risks to our valuation include a slowdown in sales growth due to rising competition, weakness in the economy, slower momentum in key markets, and failure to achieve the cost saving targets.

Retail Segment 2Q23 For 2Q23, the Retail segment recorded a revenue of $576 million, up 2.5% YoY, compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to higher revenue from services and point-of-sale solutions partially offset by decreased self-checkout related revenue. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $123 million, up 18.3% YoY, with a margin of 21.4%, up by 290 bps. This was primarily due to improvements in component, labor and freight costs and other cost mitigation and pricing actions partially offset by increased employee benefit-related costs. Retail Segment 2Q23 Spin-Off Research 1H23 In 1H23, the Retail segment recorded a revenue of $1.1 billion, up 1.8% YoY, primarily due to higher revenue from services and point-of-sale solutions partially offset by decreased self-checkout related revenue. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was increased to $220 million, up 28.7% YoY, with a margin of 19.5%, up by 410 bps. This was primarily driven by favorable software and services revenue mix and due to improvements in component, labor and freight costs and other cost mitigation and pricing actions partially offset by increased employee benefit-related costs. Hospitality Segment 2Q23 The Hospitality segment recorded a revenue of $235 million in 2Q23, down 1.3% compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to a decrease in POS hardware partially offset by an increase in point-of-sale solutions revenue and increases in services and payments processing revenues. However, Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $60 million, up 30.4% YoY, with a margin of 25.5%, up by 620 bps primarily due to improvements in component, labor and freight costs and other cost mitigation and pricing actions partially offset by increased employee benefit-related costs. Hospitality Segment Spin-Off Research 1H23 In 1H23, the Hospitality segment recorded a revenue of $458 million, up 2.0% YoY, compared to the prior-year period. This was primarily due to increased services and software revenues, including growth in cloud services and payment processing, partially offset by a decrease in POS hardware. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $113 million, up 29.9% YoY, with a margin of 24.7%, up by 530 bps primarily due to improvements in component, labor and freight costs and other cost mitigation and pricing actions partially offset by increased employee benefit-related costs. Digital Banking Segment 2Q23 For 2Q23, the Digital Banking segment recorded a revenue of $140 million, up 6.9% YoY, compared to the prior-year period. This was due to increased recurring cloud services and software maintenance revenues. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $53 million, down 5.4% YoY, with a margin of 37.9%, down by 480 bps driven by investment in selling expenses and research and development expenses, and an increase in employee benefit-related costs. Digital Bank Segment 2Q23 Spin-Off Research 1H23 The Digital Banking segment recorded a revenue of $276 million in 1H23, up 3.4% YoY, due to increased recurring cloud services and software maintenance revenues. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $102 million, down 8.9% YoY, with a margin of 37.0%, down by 490 bps driven by investment in selling expenses and research and development expenses, and an increase in employee benefit-related costs. Self-Service Banking 2Q23 For 2Q23, Self-Service Banking Segment recorded a revenue of $661 million, down 2.7% YoY, compared to the prior-year period. This was due to the shift from one-time ATM hardware and hardware maintenance revenues to recurring ATM as-a-Service arrangements and a decline in one-time software license revenues. The declines in ATM hardware, hardware maintenance and software license revenues were partially offset by increased recurring software and services revenue. Software and services revenue as a percent of total Self-Service Banking segment revenue was 69% for 2Q23. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $169 million, up 19.0% YoY, with a margin of 25.6%, up by 470 bps. This is due to the reduction in direct costs, particularly in expenses related to fuel and components, particularly in ATM hardware, and increases in higher margin recurring revenue streams. These improvements were partially offset by an increase in employee benefit-related costs. Self-Service Banking 2Q23 Spin-Off Research 1H23 For 1H23, Self-Service Banking Segment recorded a revenue of $1.3 billion, down 1.2% YoY, due to the shift from one-time ATM hardware and hardware maintenance revenues to recurring ATM as-a- Service arrangements in addition to a decline in one-time software license revenues partially offset by an increase in recurring software and services revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $307 million, up 20.9% YoY, with a margin of 24.1%, up by 440 bps driven by the reduction in direct costs, particularly in expenses related to fuel and components, particularly in ATM hardware, as well as increases in higher margin recurring revenue streams. These improvements were partially offset by an increase in employee benefit-related costs. Payments & Networks 2Q23 In 2Q23, the Payments Segment recorded a revenue of $333 million, up 0.3% YoY, compared to the prior-year period due to increased payment processing and higher Bitcoin-related revenue. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $99 million, up 2.1% YoY, with a margin of 29.7%, up 50 bps. This is due to increased higher-margin transaction revenue and cost optimization initiatives, partially offset by an increase in interest rates affecting the cost of vault cash rental obligations and employee benefit-related costs. Payments & Networks 2Q23 Spin-Off Research 1H23 In 1H23, the Payments Segment recorded a revenue of $656 million, up 4.0% YoY, compared to the prior-year period due to increased payment processing and Bitcoin related revenue driven by higher margin ATM transactions and merchant acquiring services. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $182 million, down 6.7% YoY, with a margin of 27.7%, down by 320 bps. This is due to significantly higher interest rates on vault cash agreements, higher cash-in-transit costs driven by the higher volume of cash dispensed in the period, and an increase in employee benefit-related costs. Corporate & Other Segment For 2Q23, the Corporate & Other Segment recorded a revenue of $54 million, down 11.5% YoY, compared to the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was -$106 million. In 1H23, Corporate & Other Segment reported revenue of $108 million, down 16.3% YoY, compared to the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA came in at -$106 million in 1H23 compared to -$195 million in 1H23. Corporate & Other Segment 2Q23 Spin-Off Research Valuation We value NCR Corporation by sum-of-the-parts valuation by assessing NCR Voyix (Stub) and NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) separately using the EV/EBITDA valuation methodology. A] NCR Voyix (Stub): EV/EBITDA Valuation: Post-spin-off, NCR Voyix (Stub) will focus on digital commerce business, continuing to operate its Retail, Hospitality, and Digital Banking businesses. We assign a 2024e EV/ EBITDA multiple of 9.2x (Previously: 9.5x) to NCR’s digital commerce business. The ~4% discount to its peer multiple of 9.6x (Previously: 10.2x) factors in NCR’s relatively slower top-line growth and higher debt level. We have estimated FY24e adjusted EBITDA of $705 million, with Net Debt of $2.4 billion. We have also considered a conglomerate discount of 20%. Consequently, we arrive at an intrinsic value of $24.00 for NCR Voyix (Stub). Valuation 2024e EV EBITDA and NCR Peers Spin-Off Research B]NCR Atleos (Spin-Off): EV/EBITDA Valuation: Post-spin-off, NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) will include the ATM business and continue shifting to a highly recurring revenue model to drive stable cash flow and shareholder capital returns. Our fair value estimate for NCR Atleos (Spin-Off) stands at $22.00 per share (Previously: $24.00) ($12.00 per NCR share) based on the 2024e EV/EBITDA multiple of 5.1x (Previously: 5.3x) to ATM business (~13% discount to multiple of Euronet). We have assumed a Net Debt of $2.6 billion. 2024e EV EBITDA NCE ATleos and NCR Atleos Peers Spin-Off Research C] Consolidated Valuation: We arrive at a consolidated target price of $35.00 per share (Previously: $37.00) for NCR Corporation, which implies a potential upside of 17.3% from the current market price of $29.84 as of 8/18. We, thereby, retain our ‘Buy’ rating on the stock.
