Melisa Miller, president and chief executive officer of Alliance Data, commented, "We continued to execute on our business transformation in the second quarter and made progress on delivering our strategic plan to lead the market in the convergence of payments, data and marketing. Our second quarter results were mostly in line with expectations, although core EPS was negatively impacted by the timing of credit card portfolio acquisitions. We acquired several client portfolios aggregating over $900 million in June, which were expected to occur later in the year. While this pull-forward supports our receivables growth projections for the year, the impact of the provision build post-acquisition reduced second quarter core EPS.   

"In keeping with our business transformation plans, I am pleased to say that we successfully completed the sale of Epsilon to Publicis Groupe on July 1st. As previously disclosed, we expect to use the net proceeds to retire $2.4 billion of corporate debt and repurchase up to $1.1 billion of our shares, per our recently announced Board-authorized plan. Towards that end, we anticipate launching in the next few days a "modified dutch auction" tender offer to acquire between $700 to $750 million of our common stock. The Epsilon divestiture underscores our stated commitments to move toward a more simplified and focused business model with the goal of returning to our more traditional growth profile."

Miller continued, "In addition to my new role, Tim King, former CFO of our Card Services business, has succeeded Charles Horn as Alliance Data's CFO. I believe Tim will do a tremendous job leading the financial stewardship of the company and engaging with the investor community. I want to thank Charles for his ongoing support through his new role as Vice Chairman. During our extended transition, he will be focused on several key initiatives related to our business transition. I am deeply honored and excited to be in this new leadership position, and with the support of our Board, the commitment of our strong management team, and the dedication of our 10,000+ associates, Alliance Data is well positioned for our growth comeback. 

"In closing, as we enter into the final stages of our business strategy transformation, I am confident that we are taking the right steps, and making the necessary important decisions and changes to drive long-term sustainable growth. I am eager for the challenge of leading this great organization's evolution where we will build upon our strongest, most successful assets, and return to driving growth for the business and our stockholders."

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Revenue decreased 3 percent to $1.35 billion, while EPS decreased 33 percent to $2.71 for the second quarter of 2019. The higher effective tax rate for EPS, 27 percent, compared to 15 percent for the second quarter of 2018, reduced EPS by approximately $0.43 for the second quarter. Core EPS decreased 12 percent to $3.83 for the second quarter of 2019, while adjusted EBITDA, net decreased 15 percent to $310 million for the second quarter of 2019.

LoyaltyOne®: Revenue increased 1 percent to $251 million, while adjusted EBITDA decreased 27 percent to $51 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Revenue increased 10 percent compared with the prior year when adjusted for unfavorable foreign exchange rates and additional product redemptions now recorded as net revenue. Adjusted EBITDA, net decreased 23 percent on a constant currency basis due to higher redemption costs at AIR MILES®, which is largely a function of product mix redeemed. AIR MILES reward miles issued decreased 2 percent for the second quarter of 2019, primarily due to less promotional activity in the grocery vertical.

Card Services: Revenue decreased 4 percent to $1.10 billion and adjusted EBITDA, net decreased 14 percent to $287 million for the second quarter of 2019. Gross yields decreased 90 basis points to 23.9 percent on essentially flat normalized average card receivables growth (card receivables plus held-for-sale receivables). The loan loss provision decreased 17 percent to $257 million as a result of a 7 percent decrease in reservable card receivables and a 30 basis point improvement in principal loss rates. Operating expenses increased $35 million to $472 million, primarily due to an approximate $26 million increase in mark-to-market charges on held-for-sale receivables. Excluding the mark-to-market charges, operating expenses expressed as a percentage of normalized average card receivables increased approximately 25 basis points to 9.4 percent. During the quarter, over $900 million in credit card receivables were acquired from third parties, while approximately $510 million in credit card receivables were reclassified as held-for-sale.    

2019 Guidance

Guidance for revenue is $5.8 billion, up 4 percent over 2018, and core EPS of $19.50 to $19.75, flat to up 1 percent compared to $19.49 for 2018. These amounts include the partial-year benefit of anticipated share repurchases and cost reductions.

Forward Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events and can generally be identified by the use of words such as "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "project," "plan," "likely," "may," "should" or other words or phrases of similar import. Similarly, statements that describe our business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions or goals also are forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make regarding strategic initiatives, the expected use of proceeds from the Epsilon divestiture, our expected operating results, future economic conditions including currency exchange rates, future dividend declarations and the guidance we give with respect to our anticipated financial performance.

We believe that our expectations are based on reasonable assumptions. Forward-looking statements, however, are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the projections, anticipated results or other expectations expressed in this release, and no assurances can be given that our expectations will prove to have been correct. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, factors set forth in the Risk Factors section in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the most recently ended fiscal year, which may be updated in Item 1A of, or elsewhere in, our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed for periods subsequent to such Form 10-K. Further risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the impact of strategic initiatives on us or our business if any transactions are undertaken, and whether the anticipated benefits of such transactions can be realized as well as whether or if any share repurchases, including tender offers, are undertaken.

Our forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, and we undertake no obligation, other than as required by applicable law, to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events, anticipated or unanticipated circumstances or otherwise.

Financial Measures

In addition to the results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company may present financial measures that are non-GAAP measures, such as constant currency financial measures, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, net of funding costs, core earnings and core earnings per diluted share (core EPS). Constant currency excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. The Company calculates constant currency by converting our current period local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, net as an integral part of internal reporting to measure the performance and operational strength of reportable segments and to evaluate the performance of senior management. Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the uneven effect across all reportable segments of non-cash depreciation of tangible assets and amortization of intangible assets, including certain intangible assets that were recognized in business combinations, and the non-cash effect of stock compensation expense. Similarly, core earnings and core EPS eliminate non-cash or non-operating items, including, but not limited to, stock compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangibles, restructuring or strategic transaction costs, amortization of debt issuance and hedging costs. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of the Company's reported GAAP results, provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Reconciliations to comparable GAAP financial measures are available in the accompanying schedules, which are posted as part of this earnings release in both the News and Investors sections on the Company's website (www.alliancedata.com). No reconciliation is provided with respect to forward-looking annual guidance for 2019 core EPS as the Company cannot reliably predict all necessary components or their impact to reconcile core EPS to GAAP EPS without unreasonable effort. The events necessitating a non-GAAP adjustment are inherently unpredictable and may have a material impact on the Company's future results.

The financial measures presented are consistent with the Company's historical financial reporting practices. Core earnings and core EPS represent performance measures and are not intended to represent liquidity measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies, and are not identical to corresponding measures used in other various agreements or public filings.
