Jensen resigns as CEO of USA Technologies


USA Technologies Inc., a Malvern technology firm that provides electronic payment systems to vending machines, has parted ways with its longtime CEO, George R. Jensen Jr.

Jensen, 62, resigned Friday, nine days after the company suspended him over postings he made concerning USA Technologies on an Internet message board, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Jensen had been the CEO since the company was started in January 1992.

Shares of USA Technologies were down about 2.5 percent, or 3 cents, to $1.15 in trading shortly after noon.

The company appointed Stephen P. Herbert, 48, as interim CEO and chairman on Oct. 5. He'd been president and chief operating officer of USA Technologies since August 1999.

USA Technologies had revenues of $22.87 million for its fiscal year ended June 30, up from $15.77 million for the previous year. Its net loss narrowed to $7.12 million, or 26 cents per share, for its most recent year compared with a loss of $12.31 million, or 55 cents per share.

USA Technologies had 42 full-time and three part-time employees as of Aug. 31.
