TSYS Reports Second Quarter Earnings and Increases 2018 Outlook

Share:

TSYS (NYSE:TSS) today reported results for the second quarter of 2018.

"We were very pleased with the performance and momentum of the second
quarter as all three of our segments continue to deliver exceptional
results. This performance enables us to again raise our guidance for the
year while continuing to invest for the long term in preparation for our
solid pipeline of new business," said M. Troy Woods, chairman, president
and chief executive officer of TSYS.

Highlights for the second quarter of 2018 vs. 2017:

  • Total revenues were $1,007.6 million, a decrease of 17.6%. The
    decrease is the result of adopting ASC 606.(1)
  • Net revenue (non-GAAP), which excludes reimbursable items, interchange
    and payment network fees, was $956.5 million, an increase of 13.3%.
  • Net income attributable to TSYS common shareholders was $142.4
    million, an increase of 23.8%. Diluted EPS were $0.78, an increase of
    25.0%.
  • Adjusted earnings (non-GAAP) were $203.8 million, an increase of
    28.8%. Adjusted diluted EPS (non-GAAP) were $1.11, an increase of
    30.0%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $345.0 million, an increase of 12.1%.
(1) On January 1, 2018, TSYS adopted Accounting Standards Codification
(ASC) 606 "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" using the modified
retrospective transition method. The most significant impact of
adopting ASC 606 in 2018 is primarily the result of gross versus net
presentation of interchange and payment network fees. In 2018, these
fees collected on behalf of the payment networks and card issuers
are presented "net" of the amounts paid to them, as opposed to the
"gross" presentation for certain of these fees in 2017.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release contains information prepared in conformity with GAAP
as well as non-GAAP information. It is management's intent to provide
non-GAAP financial information to enhance understanding of its
consolidated financial information as prepared in accordance with GAAP.
This non-GAAP information should be considered by the reader in addition
to, but not instead of, the financial statements prepared in accordance
with GAAP. Each non-GAAP financial measure and the most directly
comparable GAAP financial measure are presented so as not to imply that
more emphasis should be placed on the non-GAAP measure. The non-GAAP
financial information presented may be determined or calculated
differently by other companies.

Additional information about non-GAAP financial measures, including, but
not limited to, net revenue, adjusted earnings, adjusted EBITDA and
adjusted diluted EPS, and a reconciliation of those measures to the most
directly comparable GAAP measures is included on pages 11 to 15 in the
financial schedules of this release.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" – that is,
statements related to future, not past, events. Forward-looking
statements often address our expected future business and financial
performance and often contain words such as "expect," "anticipate,"
"intend," "believe," "should," "plan," "potential," "will," "could," and
similar expressions. These forward-looking statements include, among
others, statements regarding TSYS' revised earnings guidance for 2018
total revenues, net revenue, diluted EPS and adjusted diluted EPS, and
the assumptions underlying such statements. These statements are based
on the current beliefs and expectations of TSYS' management, are based
on management's assumptions and are subject to significant risks and
uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those
contemplated by the forward-looking statements. A number of important
factors could cause actual results or events to differ materially from
those contemplated by our forward-looking statements in this press
release. Many of these factors are beyond TSYS' ability to control or
predict. These factors include, but are not limited to, the material
breach of security of any of TSYS' systems; TSYS' ability to integrate
acquisitions and achieve the anticipated growth opportunities and other
benefits of the acquisitions, particularly the recently completed Cayan
acquisition; the effect of current domestic and worldwide economic
conditions; risks associated with foreign operations, including adverse
developments with respect to foreign currency exchange rates, and in
particular with respect to the current environment, adverse developments
with respect to foreign currency exchange rates as a result of the
United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union (Brexit); expenses
incurred associated with the signing of a significant client;
conversions of clients' portfolios do not occur as scheduled; the
deconversion of a significant client; changes occur in laws, rules,
regulations, credit card association rules, prepaid industry rules or
other industry standards affecting TSYS and our clients that may result
in costly new compliance burdens on TSYS and our clients and lead to a
decrease in the volume and/or number of transactions processed or limit
the types and amounts of fees that can be charged to customers, and in
particular the CFPB's new rule regarding prepaid financial products,
including its effective date; the potential for our systems and software
to contain undetected errors, viruses or defects; the costs and effects
of litigation, investigations or similar matters or adverse facts and
developments relating thereto; adverse developments with respect to the
payment card industry in general, including a decline in the use of
cards as a payment mechanism; and growth rates of TSYS' existing clients
are lower than anticipated or attrition rates of existing clients are
higher than anticipated. Additional risks and other factors that could
cause actual results or events to differ materially from those
contemplated in this release can be found in TSYS' filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent Annual
Report on Form 10-K. We believe these forward-looking statements are
reasonable; however, undue reliance should not be placed on any
forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations.
TSYS disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements
as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise except
as required by law.

operating results on a constant currency basis to reported revenues
and operating income. This non-GAAP measure presents second quarter
2018 and year-to-date financial results using the previous year's
foreign currency exchange rates. On a constant currency basis, TSYS'
total year-to-date revenues for the second quarter of 2018 were
lower 17.8% as compared to a reported GAAP decrease of 17.1%.
 
The schedules below also provide a reconciliation of diluted EPS to
adjusted diluted EPS.
 
The schedules below also provide a reconciliation of net income to
adjusted EBITDA.
 
The schedules below also provide a reconciliation of cash flows from
operating activities and capital expenditures to free cash flow.
 
The schedules below also provide a reconciliation of 2018 revised
guidance of total revenues to net revenue and diluted EPS to
adjusted diluted EPS.
 
The tax rate used in the calculation of adjusted diluted EPS for the
quarter and year is equal to an estimate of our annual effective tax
rate on GAAP income. This effective rate is estimated annually and
may be adjusted during the year to take into account events or
trends that materially impact the effective tax rate including, but
not limited to, significant changes resulting from tax legislation,
material changes in the mix of revenues and expenses by entity and
other significant events.
 
TSYS believes that non-GAAP financial measures are important to
enable investors to understand and evaluate its ongoing operating
results. Accordingly, TSYS includes non-GAAP financial measures when
reporting its financial results to shareholders and potential
investors in order to provide them with an additional tool to
evaluate TSYS' ongoing business operations. TSYS believes that the
non-GAAP financial measures are representative of comparative
financial performance that reflects the economic substance of TSYS'
current and ongoing business operations.
 
Although non-GAAP financial measures are often used to measure TSYS'
operating results and assess its financial performance, they are not
necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other
companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of
calculation.
 
TSYS believes that its provision of non-GAAP financial measures
provides investors with important key financial performance
indicators that are utilized by management to assess TSYS' operating
results, evaluate the business and make operational decisions on a
prospective, going-forward basis. Hence, management provides
disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures to give shareholders and
potential investors an opportunity to see TSYS as viewed by
management, to assess TSYS with some of the same tools that
management utilizes internally and to be able to compare such
information with prior periods. TSYS believes that inclusion of
non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional
information to help them better understand its financial statements
just as management utilizes these non-GAAP financial measures to
better understand the business, manage budgets and allocate
resources.

The estimated impact of the adoption of ASC 606 on TSYS' 2018
Outlook is as follows: Total revenues ($1,700) to ($1,675), Net
revenue ($69) to ($62), Diluted EPS and Adjusted diluted EPS of
($0.04) to ($0.03). The most significant impact of adopting ASC
606 in 2018 is primarily the result of gross versus net
presentation of interchange and payment network fees. In 2018,
these fees collected on behalf of the payment networks and card
issuers will be presented "net" of the amounts paid to them, as
opposed to the "gross" presentation for certain of these fees in
2017.
