ADP Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

ROSELAND, N.J., April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADP® (Nasdaq:ADP), a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, today announced its third quarter fiscal 2014 financial results ending March 31, 2014. Highlights below:

  • ADP reported 7% growth in revenues, nearly all organic, to $3.3 billion for the quarter.
  • Pretax and net earnings from continuing operations both increased 6%.
  • Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.06 increased 7% from $0.99 a year ago.
  • ADP acquired 0.5 million shares of its stock for treasury at a cost of $42 million in the quarter.
  • ADP announced the planned spin-off of its Dealer Services business, which is expected to be completed in October of 2014.

"ADP posted results for the third quarter that reflect the strength of our business model and demonstrate that our innovative solutions resonate with the marketplace," said Carlos Rodriguez, president and chief executive officer, ADP. "I am particularly pleased with worldwide new business bookings growth of 14% for Employer Services and PEO Services combined. During the last few months, ADP showcased new product innovations targeted to both mid-sized and large companies. We held an interactive virtual event announcing enhancements to ADP Workforce Now® that help simplify regulatory compliance and leverage analytics to assist clients with managing their Human Capital Management needs. In addition, at our ADP Meeting of the Minds conference for up-market clients we previewed a new user experience."

"Each of our business segments performed well in the quarter, driving good growth in both revenues and pretax earnings," said Jan Siegmund, chief financial officer, ADP. "Share repurchases were lower than in prior quarters as a result of ADP's decision to not repurchase shares prior to the announcement of the planned spin-off of Dealer Services. We remain committed to returning excess cash to our shareholders over the long-term."

High-margin client interest revenues declined from a year ago and negatively impacted third quarter revenue growth 0.4 percentage points due to a lower yield on the client funds portfolio, partially offset by growth in average client funds balances. This decline in client interest revenues was the primary driver of the lower contribution from the client funds extended investment strategy, which negatively impacted growth in pretax earnings from continuing operations 2% and pretax margin 60 basis points, offsetting the pretax margin expansion in the business segments. The lower contribution from the client funds extended investment strategy reduced diluted earnings per share from continuing operations almost $0.02, or 2% for the quarter.

Employer Services

Employer Services' revenues grew 6% for the third quarter, nearly all organic, compared to last year's third quarter. The number of employees on our clients' payrolls in the United States increased 2.8% for the quarter as measured on a same-store-sales basis for a subset of our clients' payrolls ranging from small to large businesses. During this key retention period, worldwide client retention increased 80 basis points compared to last year's third quarter. Employer Services' pretax margin increased 70 basis points for the quarter benefiting from increased operating efficiencies.

For the third quarter, combined worldwide new business bookings for Employer Services and PEO Services grew 14%. New business bookings represent annualized recurring revenues anticipated from new orders.

PEO Services

PEO Services' revenues increased 15% for the third quarter, all organic, compared to last year's third quarter. PEO Services' pretax margin decreased 40 basis points for the quarter primarily due to a higher level of expense related to increased new business bookings. Average worksite employees paid by PEO Services increased 18% for the quarter to approximately 328,000.

Dealer Services

Dealer Services' revenues grew 7% for the third quarter, nearly all organic, compared to last year's third quarter. Dealer Services' pretax margin improved 180 basis points benefiting from non-recurring items in the quarter.

Interest on Funds Held for Clients

The safety, liquidity and diversification of our clients' funds are the foremost objectives of our investment strategy. Client funds are invested in accordance with ADP's prudent and conservative investment guidelines and the credit quality of the investment portfolio is predominantly AAA/AA.

For the third quarter, interest on funds held for clients declined $11.9 million, or 11%, from $112.0 million a year ago to $100.1 million, due to a decline of about 30 basis points in the average interest yield to 1.6%, partially offset by an increase of 9% in average client funds balances from $23.2 billion to $25.2 billion.

Dealer Services Spin-off

As announced on April 10, 2014, ADP plans to spin-off its Dealer Services business into an independent publicly-traded company. The transaction is structured as a tax-free spin-off of 100% of Dealer Services to ADP shareholders and is expected to be completed in October of 2014. ADP expects to receive at least $700 million in conjunction with the spin-off. Following the spin-off, ADP intends to increase the dividend annually, subject to board approval, keeping intact its 39-year track record of dividend increases. However, ADP expects to grow the dividend at a slower rate than earnings to allow the company to return to its pre-separation target dividend payout ratio of 55% to 60% in about two years. ADP expects to incur spin-related expenses of approximately $20 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, which are excluded from the forecast below.

Discontinued Operations

During the quarter, ADP sold a business that generated approximately $23 million in revenues and approximately $0.01 of earnings per share in fiscal 2013. The results of operations and the gain of $10.5 million on the sale of this business are reported within discontinued operations in the fiscal 2014 and 2013 results within this release.

Fiscal 2014 Forecast

Our updated fiscal 2014 forecasts exclude any one-time expenses anticipated in connection with the Dealer Services spin-off and the results of discontinued operations.

Total ADP Fiscal 2014 Forecast

Revenues – about 8% growth, compared with our prior forecast range of 7% to 8% growth

  • Includes approximately 0.5 percentage points of anticipated drag for the year related to the decline in interest on client funds from a continued low interest rate environment, partially offset by the forecasted growth in average client funds balances.

Pretax Margins – slight improvement in pretax margin from the adjusted 18.8% in fiscal 2013, consistent with our prior forecast

  • Includes an anticipated drag of about 80 basis points for the year from the lower contribution from the client funds extended investment strategy.

Effective Tax Rate – about flat with the adjusted 33.9% in fiscal 2013, consistent with our prior forecast

Diluted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations – about 9% growth compared to the adjusted $2.88 in fiscal 2013, compared with our prior forecast of 8% to 10%

  • The lower contribution from the client funds extended investment strategy is expected to reduce earnings per share growth $0.08, or about 3%.

Reportable Segments Fiscal 2014 Forecast

  • Employer Services – consistent with our prior forecast
    • Revenue growth of 7%
    • Pretax margin expansion of about 100 basis points
    • Pays per control – up 2.0% to 3.0%
  • PEO Services –
    • About 14% revenue growth, which is an increase from our prior forecast range of 12% to 13% growth
    • Slight pretax margin expansion, consistent with our prior forecast
  • Combined Employer Services and PEO Services new business bookings – about 8%, consistent with our prior forecast
  • Dealer Services – consistent with our prior forecast
    • Revenue growth of about 8%
    • Pretax margin expansion of about 100 basis points

Interest on Funds Held for Clients, Interest Income on Corporate Funds Fiscal 2014 Forecast

The interest assumptions in our forecasts are based on Fed Funds futures contracts and forward yield curves as of April 28, 2014. The Fed Funds futures contracts used in the client short and corporate cash interest income forecasts do not anticipate any changes during fiscal 2014 in the Fed Funds target rate. The three-and-a-half and five-year U.S. government agency rates based on the forward yield curves as of April 28, 2014 were used to forecast new purchase rates for the client and corporate extended, and client long portfolios, respectively.

  • Interest on funds held for clients is expected to decline $45 to $50 million, or 11% to 12%, based on a decline of about 40 basis points in the expected average interest yield to 1.8%. This is partially offset by anticipated growth in average client funds balances of approximately 8%, which is an increase from our prior forecast of approximately 6% to 7% growth.
  • Interest income on corporate funds is expected to decline approximately $10 million primarily due to a decline in interest income related to the client funds extended investment strategy, which is included in interest income on corporate funds.
  • In combination, the total contribution from the client funds extended investment strategy is expected to be $55 to $60 million lower than a year ago.

The following table reconciles the Company's results for the twelve months ended June 30, 2013 to adjusted results that exclude a non tax-deductible goodwill impairment. The Company uses certain adjusted results, among other measures, to evaluate the Company's operating performance in the absence of certain items and for planning and forecasting of future periods. The Company believes that the adjusted results provide relevant and useful information for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company's management and improves their ability to understand the Company's operating performance. Since adjusted earnings, adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted EPS, and adjusted pre-tax margin are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, they should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, earnings, provision for income taxes, EPS, and pre-tax margin, and they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
