Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry, today announces results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and discusses its continued response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

According to David Foss, President and CEO, "We are very pleased to report another quarter of record revenue to finish off a very solid year of financial performance for our company. Despite the challenges associated with conducting business in the midst of a global pandemic, our sales teams persevered and set a monthly sales record in June and a quarterly sales record in our fiscal fourth quarter. At the same time, our operations teams continued to deliver new solutions and outstanding customer service for our clients. Even in the current business environment, the resiliency of our business model and the ongoing commitment of our associates have put us in a position to continue to successfully execute as we look forward to the new fiscal year."

GAAP Results for the Quarter and Year

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 increased to $410.5 million, which is 4% growth over the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.  Operating income decreased 3% to $76.8 million and net income increased 1% to $61.3 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in operating income for the quarter was primarily due to a slower growth rate of processing revenue as a result of headwinds related to the impact of COVID-19 (see "COVID-19 Impact and Response" section below). The net income increase was primarily driven by the decrease in effective tax rate compared to the prior-year quarter.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, revenue increased to $1,697.1 million, which is 9% growth over the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. Operating income increased 10% over the prior fiscal year to $380.6 million. Net income totaled $296.7 million, or $3.86 per diluted share, an increase of 9% compared to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. The increase in operating income was driven by organic growth in both our services and support and processing lines of revenue and higher deconversion fees during the fiscal year over the prior fiscal year.  The increase in net income is primarily attributable to the growth in both our lines of revenue and higher deconversion fees discussed above, partially offset by the increase in effective tax rate compared to the prior fiscal year.

Non-GAAP Results for the Quarter and Year

For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, adjusted revenue increased 4% to $399.8 million and adjusted operating income decreased 2% to $71.3 million, compared to the prior-year quarter.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, adjusted revenue increased 7% to $1,634.2 million and adjusted operating income increased 5% to $335.7 million compared to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019 (see Non-GAAP Impact of Deconversion Fees, Acquisition, and Disposals on page 4).

  • Total revenue increased 4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the same quarter last year. The increased revenue in the services and support line for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was primarily driven by the growth in data processing and hosting fees, quarter over quarter. The increase in processing revenue was mainly driven by increased transaction and digital revenue related to our new Paycheck Protection Program lending line related to the CARES Act (see "COVID-19 Impact and Response" section below), as well as increased transaction volumes within card processing and the associated fee revenue, quarter over quarter. Deconversion fees, which are included within services and support, increased $0.8 million compared to the fourth quarter of last year. Excluding deconversion fees from both periods and revenue from the fiscal 2020 acquisition, total adjusted revenue also increased 4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the same quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Total revenue increased 9% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period last year. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, deconversion fees increased $23.7 million compared to the prior fiscal year. Excluding deconversion fees from both years and revenue from the fiscal 2020 acquisition, total adjusted revenue increased 7%. The adjusted increase in the services and support line was primarily driven by the growth in data processing and hosting fees, as well as increased software usage revenue, and higher implementation fees primarily related to our private cloud offerings when compared to the prior fiscal year. All components of processing revenue increased for the year, despite the impact of COVID-19 late in the third quarter and into the fourth quarter (see "COVID-19 Impact and Response" section below), with increased transaction volumes within card processing and the associated fee revenue being the largest driver.
  • For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, core segment revenue increased 4% to $141.5 million from $136.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Payments segment revenue increased 3% to $145.5 million, from $141.6 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from the complementary segment increased 9% to $114.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 from $104.6 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2019. Revenue in the corporate and other segment decreased to $9.5 million, from $10.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, revenue in the core segment increased 9% to $582.2 million, compared to $536.0 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019. Payments segment revenue increased 9% to $597.7 million from $549.3 million for the prior fiscal year. Complementary segment revenue increased 11% to $463.3 million, up from $415.6 million in the prior fiscal year. Revenue from the corporate and other segment increased 4% to $53.9 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $51.7 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019.

  • Cost of revenue increased 6% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and increased 1% as a percentage of revenue. Excluding costs related to deconversions for both years and the fiscal 2020 acquisition, the adjusted cost of revenue increase was also 6%. The adjusted increase was primarily due to higher costs associated with our card processing platform, higher salaries and personnel costs related to organic growth within our product lines, and increased amortization expense primarily related to capitalized software. The adjusted increase for the quarter was partially offset by travel expense savings as a result of COVID-19 travel restrictions (see "COVID-19 Impact and Response" section below).
  • For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, cost of revenue increased 9% compared to the equivalent period of the prior fiscal year, but remained consistent as a percentage of revenue. Excluding costs related to deconversions for both years and the fiscal 2020 acquisition, adjusted cost of revenue also increased 9%. The adjusted increase was primarily due to higher costs associated with our card processing platform, increases in related revenue, and higher salaries and personnel costs primarily due to a headcount increase of 5% at June 30, 2020 compared to a year ago reflecting organic growth within our product lines, and increased amortization expense primarily related to capitalized software.
  • Research and development expense increased 20% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and 14% for full fiscal year 2020 compared to the equivalent periods of the prior fiscal year. Excluding costs related to the fiscal 2020 acquisition from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of $560 and from the full fiscal year 2020 of $1,980, adjusted research and development expense increased 18% for the quarter and 12% for the full fiscal year. The adjusted increases were primarily due to increased salaries and personnel costs partially due to a headcount increase of 4% at June 30, 2020 compared to a year ago reflecting organic growth within our product lines, as well as an increase in licenses and fees. A portion of the adjusted research and development expense is a result of our investment in digital platforms. Research and development expense for the quarter increased 1% as a percentage of total revenue compared to the prior-year quarter. Research and development expense for fiscal 2020 remained consistent with the prior fiscal year as a percentage of total revenue.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expense remained consistent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and increased 6% for full fiscal year 2020 compared to the equivalent prior fiscal year periods. Excluding costs related to deconversions, the fiscal 2020 acquisition, and the loss on disposal of certain assets, net, from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of $2,231 and from the full fiscal year 2020 of $7,825, adjusted selling, general, and administrative expense decreased 5% for the quarter and increased 2% for the full fiscal year 2020 compared to the equivalent prior fiscal year periods. The adjusted increase for the full fiscal year was mainly due to increased personnel costs primarily due to a 5% increase in headcount over the prior fiscal year and salary increases during the trailing twelve-month period. Selling, general, and administrative expense for the quarter and fiscal year remained consistent as a percentage of total revenue compared to the prior fiscal year.
  • For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, operating income decreased 3% to $76.8 million, which is 19% of revenue, compared to $79.4 million, which was 20% of revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. For the fiscal year, operating income increased 10% to $380.6 million, which is 22% of revenue, compared to operating income of $347.3 million, which was also 22% of revenue for the year ended June 30, 2019.

  • Provision for income taxes decreased in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, with an effective tax rate of 20.0% of income before income taxes, compared to 23.0% in the prior-year quarter. The decrease in the effective tax rate quarter over quarter was primarily due to the changes in the estimated state tax rate as a result of effective state planning strategies inclusive of the adjustment to deferred taxes and the true up of prior-year state tax expense to the actual state tax returns filed.
  • For the year ended June 30, 2020, provision for income taxes increased, with an effective tax rate at 22.1% of income before income taxes, compared to 21.7% for the last year. The increase to the Company's tax rate was primarily due to the difference in the tax benefits recognized from stock-based compensation between the two periods.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO and Treasurer, "Our private cloud offerings, transactional processing and digital continue to drive revenue growth for both the quarter and fiscal year. We continue to have headwinds on revenue from decreased license and hardware sales as almost every new core customer selects our cloud offering along with the continued shift of our existing customers migrating from on-premise to our private cloud.  The three primary reported operating segments showed nice revenue growth for the quarter on both a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis considering some headwinds caused by COVID-19, especially in our payments segment. Operating margins in our payments segment continue to be impacted by the additional costs related to the migration of our debit card customers to the new processing platform, while margins in core and complementary segments were steady for both the quarter and fiscal year. I would like to express my gratitude to all of our associates for taking extremely good care of themselves and our customers during these unusual times, they have and continue to perform at incredibly high levels."

*For the quarter, the loss includes the write-off of a portion of the Payments Hub development.  This occurred as part of a technology directional change in an effort to accelerate bringing customers live on The Clearing House's Real-Time Payments Network (RTP).  For the year, this includes the write-off of the Company's investments in Enterprise Risk Mitigation Solution and Payments Hub, partially offset by the gain on the sale of the Company's Houston, TX facility.

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, including adjusted revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted segment income, adjusted cost of revenue, and adjusted operating expenses.

We believe non-GAAP financial measures help investors better understand the underlying fundamentals and true operations of our business.  The non-GAAP financial measures presented eliminate one-time deconversion fees, contributions of the current fiscal year acquisition, and the one-time disposals of certain assets, all items which management believes are not indicative of the Company's operating performance.  Such adjustments give investors further insight into our performance.  For these reasons, management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in its assessment and management of the Company's performance.

Any non-GAAP financial 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 financial measures to related GAAP measures are included.

COVID-19 Impact and Response

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") as a pandemic and the President of the United States declared the outbreak as a national emergency. As COVID-19 has rapidly spread, federal, state and local governments have responded by imposing varying degrees of restrictions, including widespread "stay-at-home" orders, social distancing requirements, travel limitations, quarantines, and forced closures or limitations on operations of non-essential businesses. Such restrictions have resulted in significant economic disruptions and uncertainty.

The health, safety, and well-being of our employees and customers is of paramount importance to us. In March 2020, we established an internal task force composed of executive officers and other members of management to frequently assess updates to the COVID-19 situation and recommend Company actions. We offered remote working as a recommended option to employees whose job duties allow them to work off-site. This recommended remote working option is currently extended until at least January 4, 2021, and our internal task force will continue to evaluate recommending further extensions. Based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the Company was designated as essential critical infrastructure because of our support of the financial services industry. As of August 13, 2020, the majority of our employees were working remotely. Our internal task force considers federal, state and local guidance, as well as employee-specific and facility-specific factors, when recommending Company actions. At such time that our internal task force recommends that our remote employees begin to return to our facilities, we have prepared procedures to assist with a safe, gradual and deliberate approach, including a return-to-office training, enhanced sanitation procedures and face mask requirements, which are currently being utilized by our employees who are required to be on site to perform their required job functions.

We have suspended all non-essential business travel until at least January 4, 2021, and our internal task force will continue to evaluate the need for further extensions. We have put additional safety precautions into place for travel that is essential. We have also updated the health benefits available to our employees by waiving out-of-pocket expenses related to testing and treatment of COVID-19. Despite the move to a principally remote workforce, we honored our 2020 summer internship program through virtual methods.

Customers

We are working closely with our customers who are scheduled for on-site visits to ensure their needs are met while taking necessary safety precautions when our employees are required to be at a customer site. Delays of customer system installations due to COVID-19 have been limited, and we have developed processes to handle remote installations when available. We expect these processes to provide flexibility and value both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we have experienced delays related to continuing customer migrations to our new card processing platform. We are on track to meet the revised schedule to complete migrations of our core customers by September 30, 2020, and non-core customers by March 31, 2021, to the new platform. We continue to work with our customers to support them during this difficult time, and, to that end, have waived certain late fees in connection with our products and services. We have also enhanced our lending service offerings to support the Paycheck Protection Program that was introduced by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020. Even though a substantial portion of our workforce has worked remotely during the outbreak and business travel has been curtailed, we have not yet experienced significant disruption to our operations. We believe our technological capabilities are well positioned to allow our employees to work remotely for the foreseeable future without materially impacting our business.

Financial impact

We saw a decrease of card processing transaction volumes late in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and into the early portion of the fourth quarter due to COVID-19, which slowed the rate of growth of our processing revenue for those periods versus a year ago.  In addition, installations have been delayed and the associated revenue pushed from the current period to future periods. These headwinds may also impact our processing and installation revenues moving into fiscal 2021. Although transaction levels have since returned to more normal levels, the recurrence of lower-than-normal card processing transaction rates is uncertain and will depend upon when requirements for business closures and other restrictions are normalized and how quickly economic recovery occurs. Despite the changes and restrictions caused by COVID-19, the overall financial and operational impact on our business has been limited and our liquidity, balance sheet, and business trends remain strong. We experienced positive operating cash flows during the fourth quarter, and we do not expect that to change in the near term. However, we are unable to accurately predict the future impact of COVID-19 due to a number of uncertainties, including further government actions, the duration, severity and recurrence of the outbreak, the speed of economic recovery and the potential impact to our customers, vendors, and employees, as well as how the potential impact might affect future customer services, processing revenue, and processes and efficiencies within the Company directly or indirectly impacting financial results. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and its possible impact on the Company and to take steps necessary to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers.
