"Broadridge had a strong fourth quarter to cap off a very strong fiscal 2018. I am especially pleased by our success in Closed sales, as we delivered a record sales quarter and fiscal year," said Rich Daly, Broadridge's Chief Executive Officer. "Broadridge also achieved 10% Adjusted Operating income growth for the full year while making investments in new products and technologies including artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud, and digital. Adjusted EPS grew 34% in fiscal 2018, aided by our strong performance and lower tax rate."

"We expect fiscal 2019 to be another strong year as we build off the momentum of 2018. Our guidance calls for recurring fee revenue growth in the range of 5% to 7% and Adjusted EPS growth of 9% to 13%. With a robust pipeline, we expect Closed sales in the range of $185 million to $225 million. The combination of our strong fiscal 2018 and our outlook for 2019 has put Broadridge on track to achieve the three-year objectives laid out at our Investor Day last December."

"I am more confident than ever that Broadridge is well positioned to deliver future growth," Mr. Daly concluded.

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018

Revenues
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 ("fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018") decreased 2% to $1,320 million from $1,346 million in the prior year period.

Recurring fee revenues rose 7% to $862 million from $806 million. The increase in recurring fee revenues reflected organic growth of 6% (including 3pts from internal growth and 3pts from Net New Business) and 1pt from our recent acquisitions. Event-driven fee revenues decreased 33% to $61 million, primarily from decreased mutual fund proxy and equity proxy contests.

Distribution revenues decreased $53 million, or 11%, to $423 million. Changes in foreign currency rates positively impacted revenues by $2 million as compared to the prior year period.

Operating Income
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018:

  • Operating income was $265 million, a decrease of $32 million, or 11%, compared to $297 million for the prior year period. Operating income margin decreased to 20.1%, compared to 22.1% for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Operating income was $290 million, a decrease of $34 million, or 10%, compared to $324 million for the prior year period. Adjusted Operating income margin decreased to 22.0%, compared to 24.1% for the prior year period.
  • The decreases in Operating income margin and Adjusted Operating income margin are primarily due to the decrease in event-driven fee revenues and an increase in other operating expenses, including growth initiatives.

Interest Expense and Other Non-Operating Income
Interest expense, net for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 was $10 million, a decrease of $1 million, or 8%, compared to $11 million for the prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to a $1 million increase in interest income.

Other non-operating income, net was $3 million, an increase of $4 million, compared to $2 million of Other non-operating expense, net for the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to decreased foreign currency transaction losses.

Effective Tax Rate
The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 was 19.8% compared to 34.3% for the prior year period. The decrease in the effective tax rate is primarily due to the recognition of $22 million of excess tax benefits attributable to stock-based compensation as well as the corporate tax rate change under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act").

Net Earnings and Earnings per Share
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018:

  • Net earnings increased 11% to $207 million, compared to $187 million for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Net earnings increased 9% to $224 million, compared to $204 million for the prior year period.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 10% to $1.72, compared to $1.57 for the prior year period. 
  • Adjusted earnings per share increased 9% to $1.86 compared to $1.71 for the prior year period.

Segment and Other Results for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018

Investor Communication Solutions ("ICS")
ICS revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 were $1,112 million, a decrease of $44 million, or 4%, compared to $1,156 million for the prior year period.

  • Recurring fee revenues rose $39 million, or 7%, to $628 million. The increase was attributable to: (i) internal growth (3pts), (ii) Net New Business from increases in revenue from Closed sales (2pts) and (iii) revenues from acquisitions (1pt).   
  • Internal growth was driven by position growth for annual equity proxy communications and mutual fund and exchange traded fund ("ETF") interims, which rose 11% and 13%, respectively. These are partially offset by lower volumes from other communications.
  • Event-driven fee revenues decreased $30 million, or 33%, to $61 million, the result of decreased mutual fund proxy and equity proxy contests.
  • Distribution revenues decreased $53 million, or 11%, to $423 million.

ICS earnings before income taxes for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 were $284 million, a decrease of $14 million, or 5%, compared to $298 million for the prior year period, primarily due to lower event-driven revenues and an increase in other operating expenses partially offset by higher recurring fee revenues. Pre-tax margins decreased by 0.3 percentage points to 25.5% from 25.8%.

Global Technology and Operations ("GTO")
GTO revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 were $234 million, an increase of $17 million, or 8%, compared to $217 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to: (i) internal growth from higher trade and non-trade activity levels (4pts) and (ii) higher Net New Business from increases in revenue from Closed sales (4pts).

GTO earnings before income taxes for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 were $46 million, an increase of $7 million, or 18%, compared to $39 million in the prior year period, due to higher organic revenues. Pre-tax margins increased by 1.8 percentage points to 19.8% from 18.0%.

Other
Other Pre-tax loss increased 42% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 to $74 million from $53 million in the prior year period. The increased loss was primarily due to higher spending on growth initiatives and higher performance-based compensation expense, partially offset by decreased foreign currency transaction losses.

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2018

Revenues
Revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 increased 5% to $4,330 million from $4,143 million in the prior year period.

Recurring fee revenues rose 6% to $2,610 million from $2,451 million. The increase in recurring fee revenues reflected organic growth of 5% (including 3pts from Net New Business and 2pts from internal growth) and 1pt from our recent acquisitions. Event-driven fee revenues rose 30% to $284 million from $219 million, primarily from increased equity proxy contests and mutual fund proxy activity.

Distribution revenues decreased $41 million, or 3%, to $1,513 million. Changes in foreign currency rates positively impacted revenues by $4 million as compared to the prior year period.

Operating Income
For fiscal year 2018:

  • Operating income was $595 million, an increase of $63 million, or 12%, compared to $532 million for the prior year period. Operating income margin increased to 13.7%, compared to 12.8% for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Operating income was $685 million, an increase of $62 million, or 10%, compared to $623 million for the prior year period. Adjusted Operating income margin increased to 15.8%, compared to 15.0% for the prior year period.
  • The increases in Operating income margin and Adjusted Operating income margin are primarily due to the increase in recurring fee revenues and event-driven fee revenues.

Interest Expense and Other Non-Operating Expenses
Interest expense, net for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 was $39 million, a decrease of $4 million, or 10%, compared to $43 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. The decrease was primarily due to $2 million of lower interest expense and a $2 million increase in interest income.

Other non-operating income, net was $5 million, an increase of $5 million, compared to $1 million of Other non-operating expenses, net for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. The increase was primarily due to lower expense of $7 million related to decreased foreign currency transaction losses and lower losses related to minority equity investments of $2 million partially offset by a decrease of $4 million in investment gains.

Effective Tax Rate
The effective tax rate for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 was 23.7%, compared to 33.1% for the prior year period. The decrease in the effective tax rate is primarily due to the recognition of $41 million of excess tax benefits attributable to stock-based compensation as well as a reduced federal tax rate, partially offset by $15 million of net tax charges relating to the enactment of the Tax Act.

During fiscal year 2018, the Company incurred a net total of $15 million ("the net tax charge") tax expense resulting from the recent changes to U.S. tax laws. These expenses included $31 million in charges relating to earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries and earnings deemed repatriated for U.S. tax purposes. The charges were offset by a $15 million benefit from the remeasurement of the Company's net U.S. federal and state deferred tax liabilities.

Excluding the $41 million of excess tax benefits and the net tax charge of $15 million, the provision for income taxes would have been $159 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, and the effective tax rate would have been 28.3%.

Net Earnings and Earnings per Share
For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018:

  • Net earnings increased 31% to $428 million, compared to $327 million for the prior year period.
  • Adjusted Net earnings increased 33% to $504 million, compared to $378 million for the prior year period.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 32% to $3.56, compared to $2.70 for the prior year period. 
  • Adjusted earnings per share increased 34% to $4.19 compared to $3.13 for the prior year period.

Segment and Other Results for Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2018

Investor Communication Solutions
ICS revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 were $3,496 million, an increase of $97 million, or 3%, compared to $3,399 million for the prior year period.

  • Recurring fee revenues rose $73 million, or 5%, to $1,699 million compared to $1,626 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to: (i) Net New Business from increases in revenues from Closed sales (2pts), internal growth (2pt) and (ii) revenues from acquisitions (1pt). 
  • Internal growth was driven by position growth for annual equity proxy communications and mutual fund and ETF interims, which rose 11% and 10%, respectively, partially offset by lower volumes of other communications.
  • Event-driven fee revenues increased $65 million, or 30%, to $284 million, the result of increased equity proxy contests and mutual fund proxy activity.
  • Distribution revenues decreased $41 million, or 3%, to $1,513 million.

ICS earnings before income taxes for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 were $495 million, an increase of $66 million, or 16%, compared to $428 million for the prior year period, primarily due to higher recurring fee revenues and event-driven fee revenues. Pre-tax margins increased by 1.5 percentage points to 14.1% from 12.6%.

Global Technology and Operations
GTO revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 were $912 million, an increase of $86 million, or 10%, compared to $825 million in the prior year period. The increase was attributable to: (i) higher Net New Business from Closed sales (5pts), (ii) internal growth from higher trade and non-trade activity levels (4pts) and (iii) revenue from recent acquisitions (2pts).

GTO earnings before income taxes were $199 million, an increase of $37 million, or 23%, compared to $162 million in the prior year period, primarily due to higher organic revenues. Pre-tax margins increased by 2.2 percentage points to 21.9% from 19.7%.

Other
Other Pre-tax loss increased 37% in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 to $151 million from $111 million in the prior year period. The increased loss was primarily due to higher spending on growth initiatives and higher performance-based compensation expense, partially offset by decreased foreign currency transaction losses.

Changes in U.S. Federal Tax Laws
The Tax Act was enacted into law on December 22, 2017. One of the primary provisions of this new legislation is a reduction of the U.S. federal corporate statutory rate to 21% from 35%. With a fiscal year ending June 30, 2018, Broadridge's full year corporate rate was subject to a blended rate that included both the new and old rates. Beginning in fiscal year 2019, the Company will realize the full benefit of the lower corporate statutory rate in its provision for income taxes.

In addition, as a result of the changes in tax laws, Broadridge incurred a net tax charge of $15 million tax expense related to the repatriation of earnings from certain foreign subsidiaries and the tax remeasurement of the Company's net U.S. federal and state deferred tax liabilities. This amount is provisional and represents the Company's best estimate of the expected impact from the tax law changes. The ultimate impact of these changes may differ from Broadridge's estimate due to changes in interpretations and assumptions made by the Company, additional regulatory guidance that may be issued, as well as the amount of our fiscal year 2018 earnings before taxes.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Acquisitions
In May 2018, the Company acquired FundAssist Limited, a regulatory, marketing and sales solutions service provider to the global investments industry, for an aggregate purchase price of $47 million. In June 2018, the Company acquired MackayWilliams LLP, a specialist European fund market and research firm, for an aggregate purchase price of $8 million.

Other Events

Dividend Declaration and Increase
On August 6, 2018, Broadridge's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.485 per share payable on October 3, 2018 to shareholders of record on September 18, 2018.  This declaration reflects the Board's approval of an increase in the annual dividend amount by 33% from $1.46 to $1.94, subject to the discretion of the Board to declare quarterly dividends.  With this increase, the company's annual divided has increased for the eleventh consecutive year since becoming a public company in 2007.

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. generally accepted accounting principles ("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 earnings per share, and Free cash flow. 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 operating results and trends by providing an additional basis for comparison. 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 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 operating performance. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of: (i) Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, (ii) Acquisition and Integration Costs, (iii) Tax Act items, (iv) the Gain on Sale of Securities and (v) the Message Automation Limited ("MAL") investment gain. Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property represents non-cash amortization expenses associated with the Company's acquisition activities. Acquisition and Integration Costs represent certain transaction and integration costs associated with the Company's acquisition activities. Tax Act items represent the net impact of a U.S. federal transition tax on earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries, foreign jurisdiction withholding taxes and certain benefits related to the remeasurement of the Company's net U.S. federal and state deferred tax liabilities attributable to the Tax Act. The Gain on Sale of Securities represents a non-operating gain on the sale of securities associated with the Company's retirement plan obligations. The MAL investment gain represents a non-cash, nontaxable gain on investment from the Company's acquisition of MAL in March 2017.

We exclude Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, Acquisition and Integration Costs, Tax Act items, Gain on Sale of Securities and the MAL investment gain from our earnings 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 these adjusted measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business.

Free Cash Flow
In addition to the Non-GAAP financial measures discussed above, we provide Free cash flow information because we consider Free cash flow 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, other investments, as well as debt servicing. Free cash flow is a Non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as Net cash flows provided by operating activities less Capital expenditures as well as 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.
