Financial Results for Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2017

Revenues
Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 increased 40% to $893 million, from $639 million for the prior year period. Revenues from acquisitions contributed $273 million of this total increase, with the revenues of the North American Customer Communications business acquired from DST Systems, Inc. ("NACC") contributing $267 million

Recurring fee revenues rose 34% to $536 million from $399 million.  The increase in recurring fee revenues reflected organic growth of 6%, including 4% from Net New Business and 2% from internal growth. Acquisitions accounted for the remainder of the increase, including $106 million from the acquisition of NACC.

Distribution revenues rose $149 million, or 76%, to $346 million, largely driven by the acquisition of NACC. Event-driven revenues declined 48% to $30 million from $57 million. Changes in foreign currency rates lowered Broadridge's revenue by $6 million as compared to the prior year period.

Operating Income
For the second quarter of fiscal year 2017:

  • Operating income was $59 million, a decrease of $11 million, or 16%, compared to $70 million for the prior year period, driven by a decline in event-driven revenue and higher acquisition-related amortization expense primarily due to the acquisition of NACC. Operating income margin decreased to 6.6%, compared to 11.0% for the prior year period.

  • Adjusted operating income was $84 million, an increase of $4 million, or 6%, compared to $80 million for the prior year period. Adjusted operating income margin decreased to 9.4%, compared to 12.5% for the prior year period.

Interest Expense and Other Non-operating Expenses
Interest expense, net for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $11 million, an increase of $4 million, or 66%, compared to $6 million for the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to higher interest expense driven by higher indebtedness. Other non-operating expenses, net were essentially unchanged at $2 million.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2017:

  • Net earnings decreased 25% to $30 million, compared to $40 million for the prior year period.

ICS recurring fee revenues in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 rose $116 million, or 53%, to $334 million.  The increase reflected: (i) contributions from our recent acquisitions (49pts), including (48pts) from the NACC acquisition; and (ii) Net New Business (4pts). ICS distribution revenues rose $149 million, or 76%, to $346 million.  Event-driven revenues declined $27 million to $30 million, largely as a result of lower mutual fund proxy volumes.

ICS earnings before income taxes declined $28 million, or 61%, to $18 million.  The decline was primarily due to lower event-driven fee revenues and higher amortization related to the acquisitions of NACC and the Inveshare technology assets. Pre-tax margins decreased by 7.2 percentage points to 2.6%.

Global Technology and Operations ("GTO")
GTO revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 increased $22 million, or 12%, to $202 million, compared to $180 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to higher Net New Business (4pts), internal growth from higher trade and non-trade activity levels (4pts) and revenue from recent acquisitions (3pts).

GTO earnings before income taxes rose $17 million, or 57%, to $46 million, reflecting strong revenue growth and recent efficiency initiatives. Pre-tax margins increased by 6.6 percentage points to 22.9%.

Explanation and Reconciliation of the Company’s Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company’s results in this press release are presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP except where otherwise noted. In certain circumstances, results have been presented that are not generally accepted accounting principles measures (“Non-GAAP”).  These Non-GAAP measures are Adjusted Operating income, Adjusted Operating income margin, Adjusted Net earnings, Adjusted earnings per share, and Free cash flow. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported results.

The Company believes our Non-GAAP financial measures help investors understand how management plans, measures and evaluates the Company’s business performance. Management believes that Non-GAAP measures provide consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors’ understanding of the Company’s operating results and trends by providing an additional basis for comparison. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to, among other things, evaluate our ongoing operations, for internal planning and forecasting purposes and in the calculation of performance-based compensation. In addition, and as a consequence of the importance of these Non-GAAP financial measures in managing our business, the Company’s Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors incorporates Non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation process for determining management compensation.

Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income Margin, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Earnings per Share
These Non-GAAP measures reflect Operating income, Operating income margin, Net earnings, and Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operating performance. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, and Acquisition and Integration Costs.  Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property represents non-cash expenses associated with the Company's acquisition activities. Acquisition and Integration Costs represent certain transaction and integration costs associated with the Company’s acquisition activities.  We exclude Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, and Acquisition and Integration Costs from these measures because excluding such information provides us with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business and these items do not reflect ordinary operations or earnings. Management believes these measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business.

Free Cash Flow
In addition to the Non-GAAP financial measures discussed above, we provide Free cash flow information because we consider Free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated that could be used for dividends, share repurchases, strategic acquisitions and other discretionary investments.  Free cash flow is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as Net cash flows provided by operating activities less Capital expenditures and Software purchases and capitalized internal use software.

Reconciliations of such Non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP can be found in the tables that are part of this press release.
