MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

milestones we continue to meet in terms of cash generation and
profitability provides USA Technologies, we believe, with a powerful
edge as the cashless payment and M2M (machine to machine) market
evolves," continued Herbert. "In addition, while we continue to maintain
a strong growth track and improved financial performance, we have
balanced those strategies with forward-thinking innovation that is tuned
to where our customers and partners believe are the greatest needs and
opportunities in this emerging market space."

commend them for their outstanding growth," said Eric Openshaw, vice

environment. We applaud the leadership and employees of USA Technologies
