“One of the hallmarks of our business model is the ability to deliver attractive top and bottom line growth while also investing for the long-term. As we continue to invest, both organically and through acquisitions, we are successfully leveraging the unique and differentiated data assets and capabilities of the company to position us for future growth. This gives us great conviction in the long-term outlook for the company.”

Consumer Interactive

Consumer Interactive revenue was $123 million, an increase of 5 percent compared with the first quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was $60 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with the first quarter of 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents were $201 million at March 31, 2019 and $187 million at December 31, 2018. Total debt, including the current portion of long-term debt, was $4.0 billion at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, cash provided by continuing operations was $126 million compared with $101 million in 2018. The increase was due primarily to the increase in operating performance, partially offset by an increase in interest expense resulting from the increase in outstanding debt due to our 2018 acquisitions. Cash used in investing activities from continuing operations was $51 million compared with $31 million in 2018, due primarily to an increase in capital expenditures. Capital expenditures were $42 million compared with $27 million in 2018. Cash used in financing activities was $60 million compared with $33 million in 2018. The increase in cash used in financing activities is due primarily to $37 million of cash used to pay employee withholding taxes on restricted stock that vested during the first quarter of 2019 that we have recorded as treasury stock and $14 million of cash used to pay dividends in the first quarter of 2019, partially offset by a repayment toward our outstanding senior secured revolving line of credit in 2018.

2019 Full Year Outlook

For the full year of 2019, we are raising our Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share guidance as follows. Adjusted Revenue is expected to be between $2.603 billion and $2.618 billion, an increase of 11 to 12 percent compared with 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $1.025 billion and $1.037 billion, an increase of 12 to 13 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is expected to be between $2.60 and $2.65, an increase of 4 to 6 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share guidance includes an approximate $0.03 headwind from unfavorable foreign exchange rates and an approximate $0.18 per share headwind from the full year impact of higher interest expense related to the additional debt for acquisitions completed in June 2018 and higher LIBOR rates.

The Adjusted Revenue guidance includes approximately 500 basis points of growth from acquisitions that closed in the prior year. Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA include approximately 100 basis points of drag from foreign exchange rates. Our prior year results included approximately $20 million of incremental monitoring revenue due to a breach at a competitor which negatively impacts our organic constant currency Adjusted Revenue growth by approximately 100 basis points.

2019 Second Quarter Outlook

For the second quarter of 2019, Adjusted Revenue is expected to be between $642 million and $647 million, an increase of 14 to 15 percent compared with the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $253 million and $257 million, an increase of 15 to 17 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is expected to be between $0.64 and $0.66, an increase of 3 to 5 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is negatively impacted by approximately $0.01 from unfavorable foreign exchange rates and approximately $0.08 from higher interest expense related to additional debt for acquisitions completed in June 2018 and higher LIBOR rates.

The Adjusted Revenue guidance includes approximately 800 basis points of growth from acquisitions that closed in the prior year. Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA include approximately 100 basis points of drag from foreign exchange rates. Our prior year results included approximately $5 million of incremental monitoring revenue due to a breach at a competitor which negatively impacts our organic constant currency Adjusted Revenue growth by approximately 100 basis points.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release presents constant currency growth rates assuming foreign currency exchange rates are consistent between years. This allows financial results to be evaluated without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. This earnings release also presents organic constant currency growth rates, which assumes consistent foreign currency exchange rates between years and also eliminates the impact of our recent acquisitions. This allows financial results to be evaluated without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and the impacts of recent acquisitions.

This earnings release also presents Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share for all periods presented. These are important financial measures for the Company but are not financial measures as defined by GAAP. We present Adjusted Revenue as a supplemental measure of revenue because we believe it provides a basis to compare revenue between periods. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income as supplemental measures of our operating performance because these measures eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our cash operations and ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also a measure frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies similar to ours. Our board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA as compensation measures. Under the credit agreement governing our senior secured credit facility, our ability to engage in activities such as incurring additional indebtedness, making investments and paying dividends is tied to a ratio based on Adjusted EBITDA. These financial measures should be reviewed in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures and are not presented as alternative measures of GAAP. Other companies in our industry may define or calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, including operating income, operating margin, effective tax rate, net income (loss) attributable to the Company, earnings per share or cash provided by operating activities. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the attached Schedules.

We define Adjusted Revenue as GAAP revenue adjusted for certain acquisition-related deferred revenue and non-core contract-related revenue as further discussed in the footnotes of the attached Schedules 1, 2, and 3. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to TransUnion plus (less) loss (income) from discontinued operations, plus net interest expense, plus (less) provision (benefit) for income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization, plus (less) the revenue adjustments included in Adjusted Revenue, plus stock-based compensation, plus mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and business optimization-related expenses including Callcredit integration-related expenses, plus (less) certain other expenses (income). We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) attributable to TransUnion plus (less) loss (gain) from discontinued operations, plus (less) the revenue adjustments included in Adjusted Revenue, plus stock-based compensation, plus mergers, acquisitions, divestitures and business optimization-related expenses including Callcredit integration-related expenses, plus (less) certain other expenses (income), plus amortization of certain intangible assets, plus or minus the related changes in provision for income taxes, less any one-time tax provision benefits from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. We define Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. The above definitions apply to our calculations for the periods shown on schedules 1 through 6.

(1) This adjustment represents certain non-cash adjustments related to acquired entities, predominantly adjustments to increase revenue resulting from purchase accounting reductions to deferred revenue we record on the opening balance sheets of acquired entities. Deferred revenue results when a company receives payment in advance of fulfilling their performance obligations under contracts. Business combination accounting rules require us to record deferred revenue of acquired entities at fair value if we are obligated to perform any future services under these contracts. The fair value of this deferred revenue is determined based on the direct and indirect incremental costs of fulfilling our performance obligations under these contracts, plus a normal profit margin. Generally, this fair value calculation results in a reduction to the purchased deferred revenue balance. The above adjustment includes an estimate for the increase in revenue equal to the difference between what the acquired entities would have recorded as revenue and the lower revenue we record as a result of the reduced deferred revenue balance. This increase is partially offset by an estimated decrease to revenue for certain acquired non-core customer contracts that are not classified as discontinued operations that will expire within approximately one year from the date of acquisition. We present Adjusted Revenue as a supplemental measure of our revenue because we believe it provides meaningful information regarding our revenue and provides a basis to compare revenue between periods. In addition, our board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted Revenue as a compensation measure under our incentive compensation plans. The table above provides a reconciliation for revenue to Adjusted Revenue. The estimated adjustments to revenue are subject to change as we finalize the fair value assessments of the deferred revenue acquired with recent acquisitions and as we complete our assessment of the non-core customer contracts.
