IN LATE APRIL Portland-based ATM network operator TRM Corp. created one of the largest nonbank ATM networks in the nation when it purchased New Jersey-based LJR Consulting, which does business as Access To Money, for $15 million. Part of the funding for the deal came from an $11 million loan that TRM raised the same month, which the company is also using to pay down its debts. But for financially troubled TRM, growth is perhaps a curious choice, says ATM Magazine editor Tracy Kitten.
April also brought plenty of bad news. TRM’s auditor, accounting firm McGladrey & Pullen, issued a warning concerning TRM’s ability to stay in business. (TRM’s previous independent auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers, raised the same concern in 2007 and declined to stand for reappointment.) The company’s stock was delisted from Nasdaq for not meeting the minimum price requirement. And TRM announced revenue had dropped 16% and it had lost $8.43 million in 2007 — its third year in the red.
