Full Year Highlights

  • Total revenue for 2014 was $1,454.9 million, a decrease of 1 percent on a reported and constant currency basis compared to the prior year.
  • The Company reported EBITDA of $226.1 million, and pre-tax income of $72.6 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $277.2 million, down 6 percent on a reported basis and 8 percent on a constant currency basis compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 19.1 percent, down from 20.0 percent in the prior year.

"MoneyGram's 2014 financial results were impacted by significant competitive actions in the U.S.-to-U.S. corridor. The new low pricing we introduced in the fourth quarter is repositioning this corridor, while the strength of our cross-border money transfer business provides a solid foundation for growth. We continue to expand our suite of innovative products and services. With self-service revenue growth of 35 percent for the year it is clear we are executing well on our strategy," said Pamela H. Patsley, MoneyGram's chairman and CEO. "We remain focused squarely on compliance and investing in solutions to address the ever-increasing regulatory oversight of our industry. In addition, we have made great progress on the implementation of our broad restructuring program with the opening of our global business center in Poland."

Balance Sheet and Fourth Quarter Adjusted Free Cash Flow Highlights

MoneyGram has adopted a new balance sheet presentation to provide greater clarity to investors, and to better align with industry practice. Assets held to meet payment service obligations are now shown as settlement assets. Assets in excess of payment service obligations are now shown as cash and cash equivalents.

The company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $250.6 million and outstanding debt principal of $964.1 million. Fourth quarter interest expense was $11.5 million, up $1.5 million from the prior year. Adjusted free cash flow was negative $35.1 million for the quarter, down from last year primarily due to the timing of signing bonus payments which were $61.0 million in the quarter. Cash interest expense was $10.7 million and cash taxes were $1.5 million. Capital expenditures were $21.1 million, primarily related to the global transformation program and investments in self-service enhancements. During the fourth quarter, over 1 percent of the shares outstanding, or 0.9 million shares, were repurchased for $7.6 million.

Certain Legal Matters

In January 2015, the U.S. Tax Court granted the Internal Revenue Services' motion for summary judgment in the Company's previously disclosed litigation matter, disallowing ordinary tax treatment on certain securities losses. The Company believes that it has substantive tax law arguments in favor of its position that were not considered in the decision and expects to appeal the ruling. The court decision resulted in a reevaluation of the Company's FIN 48 tax position. As a result, the Company anticipates recording a tax expense of approximately $70 million in the first quarter and making a cash payment of approximately $60 million in the second half of 2015.

As disclosed in its previous filings, the Company received Civil Investigative Demands in 2010 from a working group of nine state attorneys general who initiated an investigation into whether the Company took adequate steps to prevent consumer fraud. No claims have been filed against the Company in connection with this investigation, and the Company has denied any wrongful conduct. The Company is in active discussions and has accrued an $11.0 million liability in the fourth quarter to resolve this matter.

Global Transformation Program Highlights

The Company incurred total cash outlays of $12.1 million as part of our compliance enhancement program, comprised of $5.1 million in operating expense and capital expenditures of $7.0 million in the fourth quarter. The Company incurred total cash outlays of $49.0 million, comprised of $26.7 million in operating expense and capital expenditures of $22.3 million for the full year 2014. Total cash outlay projections for the compliance enhancement program remain unchanged at $80 to $90 million for 2014 through 2016.

As previously announced, the Company anticipated $30 to $40 million in cash outlays for the reorganization and restructuring program to achieve annualized pre-tax cost savings of $15 to $20 million exiting 2015. The Company now anticipates total cash outlays of $40 million through 2015 with estimated annualized pre-tax cost savings of $20 million exiting 2015. For the full year 2014, the Company incurred $30.5 million of cash outlays for the program. The Company incurred restructuring and reorganization cash outlays of $12.9 million in the fourth quarter.

Full Year 2015 Outlook

"We expect 2015 to be a transitional year for MoneyGram as we complete the repositioning of our U.S. to U.S. corridor and continue our investments in self-service products, marketing, agent productivity and global consumer acquisition strategies," said Patsley. "The money transfer industry and the need for our services is growing, and we are attracting new consumers to our brand through the addition of physical and virtual outlets. We expect the company to return to double-digit constant currency revenue and EBITDA growth beginning in the fourth quarter."

For the full-year 2015, the Company estimates constant currency revenue to be approximately flat as a result of the impact of the white label competitive product introduced in the second quarter of 2014, and the Company's new low U.S. to U.S. pricing launched in the fourth quarter of 2014.

For constant currency adjusted EBITDA, the Company is estimating a decline of approximately 8 to 12 percent for the full-year 2015, primarily due to the loss of margin attributable to its U.S-to-U.S. business. Considering the timing of the introduction of the competitive white-label product and the new low pricing introduced in 2014, the Company anticipates that its 2015 results for both revenue and adjusted EBITDA will be lower in the first half of the year, both improving to double-digit constant currency growth in the fourth quarter.

The strengthening dollar is anticipated to have a 3 percent negative translation impact for the year on reported results. This outlook is based on an assumed average conversion rate of 1 Euro : 1.13 U.S. Dollar and 1 British Pound : 1.52 U.S. Dollar.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, including agent signing bonus amortization), adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA adjusted for significant items), adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted free cash flow (adjusted EBITDA less cash interest expense, cash tax expense, cash payments for capital expenditures and agent signing bonuses), constant currency measures, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted net income. In addition, we also present adjusted operating income and adjusted operating margin for our two reporting segments. The following tables include a full reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP financial measures. The equivalent GAAP financial measures for projected results are not provided as we are not able to predict results inclusive of currency changes.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations, including our ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and operations. These calculations are commonly used as a basis for investors, analysts and credit rating agencies to evaluate and compare the operating performance and value of companies within our industry. Finally, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted free cash flow, constant currency, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted net income figures are financial measures used by management in reviewing results of operations, forecasting, assessing cash flow and capital, allocating resources or establishing employee incentive programs. Although MoneyGram believes the above non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an exclusive alternative to accompanying GAAP financial measures.
