I am especially pleased by the strong demand we saw for our products and services, as evidenced by $151 million of closed sales, an all-time high for Broadridge. We also continued to deploy capital to strengthen and grow our business, including the acquisition of DST’s North American Customer Communications business in July, which we expect will deliver significant strategic and financial benefits over a multi-year period.”

Mr. Daly added, “As a result of these strong results and our confidence in the strength of our business, the Board of Directors approved a 10% increase in our annual dividend amount to $1.32 per share. I am proud to note that Broadridge has raised its dividend every year since becoming a public company in 2007.”

Financial Results for Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016

Revenues and Sales

Revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 increased 5% to $975 million, compared to $930 million for the prior year period. The $45 million increase was driven by: (i) higher recurring fee revenues of $43 million, or 7%; (ii) higher distribution revenues of $4 million, or 1%; and (iii) higher event-driven fee revenues of $3 million, or 6%. The positive contribution from recurring fee revenues reflected gains from Net New Business (3 pts), contributions from acquisitions (2 pts), and internal growth (2 pts). The Company defines Net New Business as recurring revenue from closed sales less recurring revenue from client losses.

Closed sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 increased 46% to $57 million, compared to $39 million for the prior year period.

Operating Income

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016:

  • Operating income was $270 million, an increase of $9 million, or 3%, compared to $262 million for the prior year period.
  • Operating income margin decreased to 27.7%, compared to 28.2% for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Operating income was $279 million, an increase of $9 million, or 3%, compared to $270 million for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Operating income margin decreased to 28.6%, compared to 29.1% for the prior year period.

The increase in Operating income and Adjusted Operating income was due to revenue growth. The 50 basis points decline in Operating income margin and Adjusted Operating income margin was primarily the result of higher corporate operating expenses, including severance costs and professional service fees, partially offset by higher segment pre-tax margins compared to the prior year period.

Net Earnings and Earnings Per Share

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016:

  • Net earnings increased 3% to $170 million, compared to $166 million for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Net earnings increased 2% to $176 million, compared to $172 million for the prior year period.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 4% to $1.40, compared to $1.35 for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Diluted earnings per share increased 4% to $1.45 from $1.40 for the prior year period

Diluted earnings per share and Adjusted Diluted earnings per share amounts in the current year period were positively impacted $0.01 per share and $0.02 per share, respectively, by a 1% decline in the number of weighted-average diluted shares outstanding to 121 million from 123 million for the prior year period.

Segment and Other Results for Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016

Investor Communication Solutions
Investor Communication Solutions segment Revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 increased $38 million, or 5%, to $804 million, compared to $766 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to higher recurring fee revenues which increased $31 million, or 7%, higher event-driven fee revenues which contributed $3 million, and higher distribution revenues which contributed $4 million. Higher recurring fee revenues of 7% were driven by: (i) Net New Business primarily driven by increases in revenues from closed sales (3 pts); (ii) contributions from our recent acquisitions (2 pts); and (iii) positive internal growth (2 pts). Pre-tax margins increased by 50 basis points to 32.6% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, primarily due to: (i) earnings from higher recurring and event-driven revenues partially offset by (ii) higher operating expenses, and (iii) incremental operating and intangible amortization costs related to acquisitions.

Global Technology and Operations
Global Technology and Operations segment Revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 increased $12 million, or 7%, to $190 million, compared to $178 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to higher Net New Business (3 pts), internal growth from increased usage of products and services as well as higher trading activity, partially offset by contract renewals (3pts), and revenue from our recent acquisitions (1pt). Pre-tax margins increased by 260 basis points to 18.7% primarily as a result of (i) higher revenues from closed sales and internal growth, partially offset by (ii) incremental operating costs and the impact of recent acquisitions.

Other
Pre-tax loss increased by $15 million, or 74%, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 to $35 million from $20 million in the prior year period. The increased loss was mainly due to: (i) higher compensation expenses of $13 million, which included severance costs of $7 million, and (ii) professional services fees of $4 million, partially offset by (iii) a benefit from a reduction in the fair value of our obligation under contingent acquisition consideration arrangements of $4 million.

Additional Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2016 Events

Senior Notes Offering
On June 27, 2016, the Company completed an offering of $500 million in aggregate principal amount of unsecured senior notes.

The higher recurring fee revenues of $155 million reflected gains from Net New Business (4 pts), contributions from acquisitions (3 pts), and internal growth (1 pt).

Closed sales for fiscal year 2016 increased 3% to $151 million, compared to $146 million in the prior year.

  • Adjusted Operating income was $537 million, an increase of $40 million, or 8%, compared to $497 million in the prior year.
  • Adjusted Operating income margin was unchanged at 18.5%, compared to the prior year.

The increase in Operating income and Adjusted Operating income was due to: (i) higher revenues, partially offset by (ii) higher operating expenses including an $11 million increase in severance costs and a $7 million increase in amortization expense from acquired intangibles.

For fiscal year 2016:

  • Net earnings increased 7% to $307 million, compared to $287 million in the prior year.

Diluted earnings per share and Adjusted Diluted earnings per share amounts were positively impacted $0.05 per share and $0.06 per share, respectively, by a 2% decline in the number of weighted-average diluted shares outstanding to 122 million from 124 million in the prior year.

Segment and Other Results for Fiscal Year 2016

Investor Communication Solutions
Investor Communication Solutions segment Revenues in fiscal year 2016 increased $190 million, or 9%, to $2,220 million, compared to $2,030 million in the prior year. The increase was attributable to higher recurring fee revenues which increased $109 million, or 10%, higher event-driven fee revenues which contributed $27 million, and higher distribution revenues which contributed $54 million. Higher recurring fee revenues of 10% were driven by: (i) contributions from our recent acquisitions (5 pts); (ii) higher Net New Business primarily driven by increases in revenues from closed sales (5 pts); and (iii) internal growth (1 pts). Position growth compared to the same period in the prior year, which is a component of internal growth, was 3% for annual equity proxy communications and 4% for mutual fund interims and was the primary driver behind internal growth. Higher event-driven fee revenues were the result of increased mutual fund proxy and corporate re-organization communications activity. Pre-tax margins decreased by 40 basis points to 18.4%, primarily due to (i) higher operating expenses and (ii) incremental operating and intangible amortization costs related to acquisitions, partially offset by (iii) earnings from higher recurring and event-driven revenues.

Global Technology and Operations
Global Technology and Operations segment Revenues in fiscal year 2016 increased $46 million, or 7%, to $738 million, compared to $693 million in the prior year. The increase was attributable to: (i) higher Net New Business from closed sales (3 pts); (ii) internal growth from increased usage of products and services as well as trading activity, partially offset by contract renewals (2 pts); and (iii) revenue from our recent acquisitions (1 pt). Pre-tax margins increased by 90 basis points to 18.3% primarily due to: (i) higher revenues from closed sales and internal growth partially offset by (ii) incremental operating costs and the impact of recent acquisitions.

Other
Pre-tax loss increased by $6 million, or 7%, in fiscal year 2016 to $79 million from $74 million in the prior year. The increased loss was mainly due to: (i) higher compensation expenses, which included increased severance costs of $9 million and (ii) an increase in interest expense, partially offset by (iii) a reduction in the fair value of our obligation under contingent acquisition consideration arrangements of $5 million.

Explanation and Reconciliation of the Company’s Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company’s results in this press release are presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP except where otherwise noted. In certain circumstances, results have been presented that are not generally accepted accounting principles measures (“Non-GAAP”). These Non-GAAP measures are Adjusted Operating income, Adjusted Operating income margin, Adjusted Net earnings, Adjusted Diluted earnings per share, and Free cash flows. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported results.

The Company believes our Non-GAAP financial measures help investors understand how management plans, measures and evaluates the Company’s business performance. Management believes that Non-GAAP measures provide consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors’ understanding of the Company’s historical operating trends by providing an additional basis for comparisons to prior periods. Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to, among other things, evaluate our ongoing operations, for internal planning and forecasting purposes and in the calculation of performance-based compensation. In addition, and as a consequence of the importance of these Non-GAAP financial measures in managing our business, the Company’s Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors incorporates Non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation process for determining management compensation.

Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income Margin, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share

These Non-GAAP measures reflect Operating income, Operating income margin, Net earnings, and Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing performance. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of Acquisition Amortization and Other Costs, which represent the amortization of acquired intangibles as well as other transaction costs and certain integration costs associated with the Company’s acquisition activities. We exclude Acquisition Amortization and Other Costs from these measures because excluding such information provides us with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business and these items do not reflect ordinary operations or earnings. Management believes that these measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business.

Free Cash Flows

In addition to the Non-GAAP financial measures discussed above, we provide Free cash flow information because we consider Free cash flows to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated that could be used for dividends, share repurchases, strategic acquisitions and other discretionary investments. Free cash flows is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as Net cash flows provided by operating activities less Capital expenditures, software purchases and capitalized internal use software.

Reconciliations of such Non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP can be found in the tables that are part of this press release.
