CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Revenue increased 17 percent to $1.75 billion while adjusted EBITDA, net increased 7 percent to $422 million for the second quarter of 2016. Net income increased 8 percent to $141 million, while EPS decreased 41 percent to $1.24 due to $1.14 in accretion charges related to the purchase of the remaining 20 percent interest in BrandLoyalty. Core EPS increased 11 percent to $3.68 for the second quarter of 2016, compared to guidance of $3.58. Unfavorable foreign exchange rates reduced both revenue and core EPS by less than 1 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015.

Ed Heffernan, president and chief executive officer of Alliance Data, commented, "We started the year with below trend growth rates of 5 percent for revenue and core EPS in the first quarter. At that time we guided to a modest acceleration in growth rates to 8 percent for revenue and core EPS in the second quarter, with the goal of returning to double-digit growth in revenue and core EPS in the back-half of 2016.

"What we saw in the second quarter was an early acceleration across the company as revenue and core EPS surged 17 percent and 11 percent, respectively. This strong performance makes our previous full-year guidance of 10 percent and 11 percent growth in revenue and core EPS, respectively, seem conservative. As such, we are raising guidance on both."

Heffernan continued, "As I have previously indicated, we need three things to happen for this year to really come together. Encouragingly, each is trending in line with or better than expectations. First, Epsilon performed better than anticipated as revenue turned from down 2 percent in the first quarter to up 5 percent in the second quarter, compared to our expectations of a 2 to 3 percent turn. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 9 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015, but improved substantially from the 22 percent decline in the first quarter with an expected flip to positive growth in the third quarter as India comes fully online and redundant costs are eliminated. Second, Card Services’ gross yield, which was down 210 basis points in the first quarter, improved dramatically to just 80 basis points down in the second quarter, roughly a quarter ahead of expectations. Third, Card Services’ principal loss rate came in as expected at 5.1 percent in the second quarter, 10 basis points better than the first quarter and on track for a 5.0 percent loss rate for the year as per guidance set at the beginning of this year.

"Finally, we have repurchased approximately 2.6 million shares year-to-date, and used about half of our full-year authorization. Additionally, we acquired the final 20 percent ownership of BrandLoyalty during the quarter. M&A wasn’t a priority for us this year, but this was an opportunity too good to pass."

SEGMENT REVIEW

LoyaltyOne?: Revenue increased 17 percent to $352 million, while adjusted EBITDA increased 20 percent to $79 million for the second quarter of 2016. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 19 percent, while adjusted EBITDA increased 23 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2015.

AIR MILES? revenue increased 6 percent on a constant currency basis driven by strong redemption growth. AIR MILES reward miles issued decreased 3 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015 due to reduced promotional activity and the one-time issuance of AIR MILES reward miles related to the conversion of Sobeys’ legacy program in the second quarter of 2015. AIR MILES reward miles redeemed increased 8 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015, due to double-digit growth in AM Cash, the instant reward program option.

BrandLoyalty revenue increased 44 percent on a constant currency basis. North American expansion efforts continue to develop with 5 programs scheduled in Canada and 2 programs in the U.S. for 2016. The initial program in the U.S. with a top 3 grocer was very successful with the pilot stores showing revenue growth approximately 1.5 percent higher than non-pilot stores. Plans are underway to extend the program to the full store network at a later date.

LoyaltyOne acquired the remaining 20 percent ownership of BrandLoyalty effective April 1, 2016 for approximately $259 million in consideration. Because the remaining ownership was purchased prior to the 10 percent tranches scheduled for January 2017 and January 2018, the consideration paid exceeded the carrying value of the redeemable non-controlling interest on the balance sheet. The difference of $68 million is a charge to retained earnings, but nonetheless is considered in the calculation of EPS, which was reduced by $1.14.

Epsilon?: Revenue increased 5 percent to $519 million, and adjusted EBITDA decreased 9 percent to $103 million for the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA decreased $10 million from the second quarter of 2015, primarily due to approximately $6 million in duplicative payroll costs as the new India office ramps up, and approximately $3 million in severance expense. These costs are expected to abate in the third quarter.

Digital & technology platforms revenue increased a robust 14 percent to $387 million, largely driven by a 66 percent increase in CRM. The backlog for CRM continues to grow as 22 new clients have already been signed in 2016 with an annual contract value of approximately $50 million. Conversely, agency media & services revenue dropped 15 percent from the prior year to $132 million due to broad-based weakness, especially in the telco, CPG and retail verticals. This compares to a 23 percent decline in the first quarter.

The agency media & services offering has been weak for several quarters due to a combination of decreased spending by a large customer in traditional agency and lower volume of digital media buys from large, third-party agencies. In response, three initiatives were undertaken during the second quarter. The first was to adjust the cost structure commensurate with lower revenue expectations. That is largely complete. The second, which is a longer-term initiative, is to redirect digital agency toward mid-size agencies and direct-to-clients. The third is to pivot digital agency towards data-driven marketing and insights, thus creating a CRM ’light’ solution for clients who are not yet ready for full CRM.

Card Services: Revenue increased 25 percent to $886 million and adjusted EBITDA, net increased 10 percent to $276 million for the second quarter of 2016.

Gross yields were 25.4 percent for the second quarter of 2016, down approximately 80 basis points from the prior comparable period. The decrease is primarily due to portfolio growth and program changes.

Operating expenses increased 24 percent to $332 million, or 9.5 percent of average receivables compared to 9.9 percent in the second quarter of 2015, indicating strong operating leverage. The loan loss provision increased 47 percent to $228 million, driven by strong growth in average card receivables and higher principal loss rates. Portfolio funding costs were $50 million for the second quarter of 2016, or 1.4 percent of average credit card receivables, up 10 basis points from the second quarter of 2015.

Credit sales increased 18 percent to $7.1 billion for the second quarter of 2016, supported by a 5 percent increase in core cardholder spending as tender share gains of approximately 180 basis points continued. Average credit card receivables, excluding amounts reclassified as assets held for sale, increased 24 percent to $13.5 billion compared to the second quarter of 2015, while net principal loss rates for the second quarter of 2016 were 5.1 percent, up 60 basis points from last year. The increase is primarily due to account seasoning and lower recoveries.

Guidance

Guidance for 2016 has been raised to $7.15 billion in revenue, an 11 percent increase, and $16.85 in core EPS, a 12 percent increase, both as compared to 2015.

Third quarter guidance is $1.78 billion in revenue and $4.42 in core EPS, both representing a 12 percent increase, as compared to the third quarter of 2015.

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 and non-controlling interest, core earnings and core earnings per diluted share (core EPS). 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. 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. These metrics are an integral part of the Company’s internal reporting to measure the performance of reportable segments and the overall effectiveness of senior management. Reconciliations to comparable GAAP financial measures are available in the accompanying schedules and on the Company’s website. The financial measures presented are consistent with the Company’s historical financial reporting practices. Core earnings and core earnings per diluted share 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.
