Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

MONETT, Mo., Nov. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry, today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and related amendments, collectively referred to as ASC Topic 606, on July 1, 2019. The prior year numbers presented below have been re-cast as part of our full retrospective adoption of the new standard.

GAAP Results for the Quarter

Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 increased to $392.5 million, a 9% improvement over the first quarter of fiscal 2018.  Operating income increased 6% to $103.2 million. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA") enacted December 22, 2017 lowered our effective tax rate for fiscal 2019 and contributed to the large increase in net income of 25% over the first quarter of fiscal 2018 to $83.6 million, or $1.08 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Results for the Quarter

On an adjusted basis for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, revenue increased 10% compared to the prior year quarter to $384.7 million. Operating income increased 16% to $98.1 million.

According to David Foss, President and CEO, "We are very pleased to report another record quarter of revenue, operating income, and net income.  Our sales teams again had a very strong quarter, signing twelve new core customers, with all but one of them choosing the outsourced model. Demand for our solutions continues to be high, and the overall sales organization once again exceeded their quota.  I would like to thank all of our associates for their continued commitment to our customers and their ongoing success."

Operating Results

Revenue, operating expenses, operating income, and net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 were as follows:

  • The increased revenue in the services and support line for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was mainly driven by growth in our "outsourcing and cloud" revenue, partially due to the Ensenta acquisition, and increased "in-house support" revenue, driven by higher software usage revenue which resulted mainly from the addition of new customers in the trailing twelve months. The increase in processing revenue was also partially due to Ensenta, although all components of processing revenue increased even after excluding Ensenta revenue. Deconversion fees, which are included within services and support, decreased $2.9 million compared to the first quarter of the prior year. Excluding deconversion fees from both periods, total revenue increased 10% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the same quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, core segment revenue increased 8% to $137.6 million from $127.3 million in the same period a year ago. Payments segment revenue increased 9% to $134.2 million, from $122.9 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from the complementary segment increased 13% to $107.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 from $95.0 million in the same period of fiscal 2018. Revenue in the corporate and other segment decreased 16% to $13.5 million, compared to $16.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

  • Cost of revenue increased 8% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2018, but remained consistent as a percentage of revenue. The increased costs were primarily due to increased headcount driving increased salaries and benefits, partially due the acquisition of Ensenta; higher direct costs of product, including spending related to our strategic partnership with First Data and PSCU to expand our credit and debit cart platform; and increased amortization of capitalized software.
  • Research and development expense increased for the first quarter mainly due to increased salary and personnel costs resulting from increased headcount, partially from the acquisition of Ensenta, but remained consistent with the prior year first quarter as a percentage of total revenue.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 10% over the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. The increased spending was mainly due to increased commissions, salaries, and benefits.
  • In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we recognized a gain on the disposal of our jhaDirect product line.
  • For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, operating income increased 6% to $103.2 million, or 26% of revenue, compared to $97.1 million, or 27% of revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

Net Income

Net income for the first quarter ended September 30, 2018 was significantly impacted by the lower effective tax rate resulting from the TCJA.

  • Provision for income taxes decreased in the first quarter, with an effective tax rate at 19.2% of income before income taxes, compared to 31.1% for the same quarter of the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to the lower federal income tax rate resulting from the TCJA, as well as an increase in excess tax benefits from share-based payments in the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "As we discussed on the last earnings call, our operating margins will be down a little this year for a couple of reasons; first is the impact of the double costs related to our new electronic payments platform that we have been discussing for well over a year now, and second is the new bonus programs that we discussed on the last earnings call to utilize some of the savings from the TCJA for our associates. As noted above, we continue to see significant savings from the TCJA to our bottom line, and our effective tax rate for the entire fiscal year should be approximately 23%."

Non-GAAP Impact of Effects of Deconversion Fees, Divestitures, and New Bonus Program

The table below shows our revenue and operating income (in thousands) for the first quarter and fiscal three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to the prior year periods, excluding the impacts of deconversion fees, gain on divestitures, and expenses related to a bonus program enacted by the Company in fiscal 2019 in response to the TCJA.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) is the term used to refer to the standard framework of guidelines for financial accounting in the United States.  GAAP includes the standards, conventions, and rules accountants follow in recording and summarizing transactions in the preparation of financial statements.  In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we have provided certain non-GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP measures include adjusted revenue and operating income.

We believe these non-GAAP measures help investors better understand the underlying fundamentals and true operations of our business.  The non-GAAP revenue and operating income presented eliminate items management believes are not indicative of the Company's operating performance.  Revenue increase/ decrease adjusts for one-time deconversion fees, gain or loss on divestitures, and the impact of the new bonus program put in place with the positive impact of the Tax Cuts an Jobs Act, giving investors further insight into our performance.  For these reasons, management also uses these non-GAAP measures in its assessment and management of the Company's performance.

Any non-GAAP measures should be considered in context with the GAAP financial presentation and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP measures.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to related GAAP measures are included.

Quarterly Conference Call
The company will hold a conference call on November 7, 2018; at 7:45 a.m. Central Time and investors are invited to listen at www.jackhenry.com.
