TransUnion Announces Strong Third Quarter 2018 Results

TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Revenue:

  • Total Revenue was $604 million, an increase of 21 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (22 percent on a constant currency basis, 11 percent on an organic constant currency basis).
  • Adjusted Revenue, which removes the impact of deferred revenue purchase, accounting reductions and other adjustments to revenue for our recently acquired entities, was $621 million, an increase of 25 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (26 percent on a constant currency basis, 11 percent on an organic constant currency basis).

Earnings:

  • Net income attributable to TransUnion was $46 million, compared with $69 million in the third quarter of 2017. The decrease in net income attributable to TransUnion was due to incremental amortization and interest expense and integration-related costs resulting from our recent business acquisitions. As a result, diluted earnings per share was $0.24, compared with $0.36 in the third quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted Net Income was $125 million, compared with $93 million in the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share was $0.65, compared with $0.49 in the third quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $245 million, an increase of 26 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (28 percent on a constant currency basis). Adjusted EBITDA margin was 39.4 percent, compared with 39.0 percent in the third quarter of 2017.

“TransUnion delivered another quarter of strong performance with double-digit growth in Revenue, Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA along with strong organic revenue growth in all three segments,” said Jim Peck, President and CEO. “We continue to execute well and are delivering broad-based growth as a result of our industry-leading innovation, attractive vertical and geographic markets and differentiated technology platform.”

“As we look forward to the end of 2018 and to 2019, we remain bullish that we can continue to drive strong, above market growth as we continue to deliver meaningful innovation, integrate and fully leverage our recent acquisitions and also continue to gain market share from key accounts,” he concluded.

International

International revenue was $129 million, an increase of 36 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (42 percent on a constant currency basis, 12 percent on an organic constant currency basis). International Adjusted Revenue was $145 million.

  • Emerging markets revenue was $65 million, an increase of 6 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (14 percent on a constant currency basis).

Operating income was $4 million, a decrease of 80 percent (70 percent on a constant currency basis) compared with the third quarter of 2017. The decrease was due to incremental amortization expense and integration-related costs resulting from our recent business acquisition. Adjusted Operating Income was $50 million, an increase of 54 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017 (62 percent on a constant currency basis, 18 percent on an organic constant currency basis).

Consumer Interactive

Consumer Interactive revenue was $119 million, an increase of 11 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017. Revenue in the third quarter of 2018 included approximately $5 million of incremental credit monitoring revenue due to a breach at a competitor.

Operating income was $57 million, an increase of 22 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted Operating Income was $59 million, an increase of 21 percent compared with the third quarter of 2017.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash and cash equivalents were $227 million at September 30, 2018 and $116 million at December 31, 2017. Total debt, including the current portion of long-term debt, was $4.1 billion at September 30, 2018, compared with $2.5 billion at December 31, 2017. The increase was due to the funding of our Callcredit, iovation and HPS acquisitions, which closed in the second quarter of 2018.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, cash provided by continuing operations was $410 million compared with $347 million in 2017. 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. Cash used in investing activities was $1,927 million compared with $149 million in 2017, due primarily to the significant increase in cash used to fund acquisitions. Capital expenditures were $118 million compared with $91 million in 2017. Cash from financing activities was $1,634 million compared with a use of cash of $127 million in 2017. The increase in cash provided by financing activities was due primarily to cash borrowed to fund our acquisitions and a decrease in treasury stock repurchased, partially offset by dividends paid in 2018.

2018 Full Year Outlook

For the full year of 2018, we are raising our Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share guidance as follows. Adjusted Revenue is expected to be between $2.342 billion and $2.347 billion, an increase of 21 percent compared with 2017. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $912 million and $915 million, an increase of 22 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is expected to be between $2.46 and $2.47, an increase of 31 to 32 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share includes a benefit of approximately $0.31 due to the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share guidance also includes an approximate $0.02 headwind from unfavorable foreign exchange rates and an approximate $0.01 per share headwind from the impact of higher LIBOR rates on the debt existing prior to the incremental financing activities completed in June 2018.

The Adjusted Revenue guidance includes approximately 10 points growth from acquisitions that closed in the prior year and in the second quarter of 2018, as well as approximately 50 basis points of drag on Adjusted Revenue and approximately 70 basis points of drag on Adjusted EBITDA from foreign exchange rates. Our guidance also includes approximately $16 million of incremental monitoring revenue due to a breach at a competitor, compared with $4 million in 2017. The expected increase in this incremental revenue represents 0.5 percent of the total growth.

2018 Fourth Quarter Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2018, Adjusted Revenue is expected to be between $620 million and $625 million, an increase of 23 to 24 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $243 million and $246 million, an increase of 24 to 26 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is expected to be between $0.62 and $0.63, an increase of 24 to 26 percent. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per share includes a benefit of approximately $0.08 due to the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The fourth quarter Adjusted Revenue guidance includes approximately 15 points of growth from acquisitions that closed in the prior year and in the second quarter of 2018. Foreign exchange rates are driving approximately 1 percent of drag on Adjusted Revenue and 2 percent drag on Adjusted EBITDA.

Given the size of the Callcredit acquisition, beginning in the third quarter 2018, we have modified our Non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share to add back costs incurred relating to our integration of Callcredit. We expect to add these costs back to these Non-GAAP performance measures for approximately two years. Additionally, beginning with the third quarter 2018, we have begun to disclose the Non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted Revenue. Adjusted Revenue is intended to reflect what revenue would have been had we not reduced the amount of deferred revenue on the opening balance sheets for recently acquired businesses as a result of applying business combination fair value accounting principles. We expect deferred revenue adjustments for acquisitions that closed in the second quarter of 2018 to primarily last for approximately one year, with the remainder to last up to two years. We believe the best period-over-period comparison of revenue over the next one to two years as we run off this impact will be Adjusted Revenue compared with GAAP revenue in periods prior to and after the impact of this run-off is complete. Further, revenue from certain non-core customer contracts of Callcredit that are not classified as discontinued operations and that are expected to expire within one year have been excluded from Adjusted Revenue. See Non-GAAP Financial Measures below and Schedules 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 for additional information.

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 for periods beginning July 1, 2018, and Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, segment Adjusted Operating Income, segment Adjusted Operating 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 these financial measures as supplemental measures of our operating performance because we believe they provide meaningful information regarding our performance and provide a basis to compare operating results between periods. We present Adjusted Operating Income, 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. Also, Adjusted EBITDA is a measure frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies similar to ours. In addition, our board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA as compensation measures. Furthermore, 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.

Adjusted Revenue is defined as GAAP revenue adjusted for certain acquisition-related deferred revenue and non-core contract-related revenue as further discussed in footnote 1 of the attached Schedules 2, 3, 5 and 7. Adjusted EBITDA is defined 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). Adjusted Operating Income is defined as operating income plus (less) the revenue adjustments included in Adjusted Revenue, plus stock-based compensation, plus certain 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. Adjusted Effective Tax Rate is defined as Adjusted Provision for Income Taxes divided by Adjusted Income Before Income Taxes. Adjusted Net Income is defined 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. Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. The above definitions apply to our calculations for the historical periods shown on schedules 1 through 5, and for the periods covered by our guidance as shown in Schedule 7.

As a result of displaying amounts in millions, rounding differences may exist in the table above.

(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. 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 plan. 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.

(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. 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 plan. 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. For the three- and nine-month periods the adjustment to revenue by segment were as follows: $1.1 million USIS; and $16.6 million International.

(2) Consisted of stock-based compensation and cash-settled stock-based compensation.

(3) For the three months ended September 30, 2018, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: $4.2 million of Callcredit integration-related expenses (International); a $0.1 million loss on the divestiture of a small business operation (International); and a $0.1 million adjustment to contingent consideration expense from previous acquisitions (USIS). For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: $4.2 million of Callcredit integration-related expenses (International); a $1.2 million loss on the divestiture of a small business operation (International); and a $0.1 million adjustment to contingent consideration expense from previous acquisitions (USIS).

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: a $0.4 million adjustment to contingent consideration expense from previous acquisitions (USIS). For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: a $0.5 million loss on the divestiture of a small business operation (International); and a $0.2 million adjustment to contingent consideration expense from previous acquisitions (USIS).

(4) For the three months ended September 30, 2017, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: a $(1.3) million reduction to expense for certain legal and regulatory matters (Corporate); and a $(0.6) million reduction to expense for sales and use tax matters (USIS). For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, consisted of the following adjustments to operating income: a $(1.3) million reduction to expense for certain legal and regulatory matters (Corporate); and a $(0.6) million reduction to expense for sales and use tax matters (USIS).

(5) Consisted of amortization of intangible assets from our 2012 change in control transaction and amortization intangible assets established in business acquisitions after our 2012 change in control.

(6) Segment operating margins are calculated using segment gross revenue and operating income. Segment Adjusted Operating Margins are calculated using segment gross Adjusted Revenue and segment Adjusted Operating Income. Consolidated operating margin is calculated using total revenue as reported and operating income as reported. Consolidated Adjusted Operating Margin is calculated using total Adjusted Revenue and total Adjusted Operating Income.
