MALVERN, PA -- USA Technologies Inc. reported a net loss of $.2 million for its fiscal 2018 first quarter, compared with a net loss of $2.5 million in the comparable prior-year period.

For the first quarter, ended Sept. 30, the company reported revenue of $25.6 million, up 19% from $21.59 million a year ago, marking its 32nd consecutive quarter of growth.

"The first quarter was a strong start to our fiscal year, marked by continued momentum of cashless acceptance in our target market," said USA Technologies chairman and chief executive Stephen P. Herbert. "During the quarter, we increased our penetration with our existing customers and reached the highest quarterly new customer additions in two years. We believe that our value proposition and addressable market will be further enhanced by our planned acquisition of Cantaloupe Systems, which we announced yesterday, Nov. 7, 2017. Cantaloupe will bring complementary value-added services that will enable USA Technologies to offer a comprehensive end-to-end enterprise platform to new customers and further penetrate our existing customer base."
