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

MONETT, Mo., April 30, 2019 /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 third 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, 2018. 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 March 31, 2019 increased to $380.4 million, a 2% improvement over the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  Operating income decreased 16% to $76.4 million and net income decreased 14% to $59.3 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  The decrease was due primarily to decreased deconversion fees in the current quarter and added expense related to a bonus program enacted by the Company in fiscal 2019 in response to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("TCJA").

For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, revenue increased to $1,159.2 million, a 6% increase compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2018.  Operating income decreased 2% over the prior year-to-date period to $267.9 million. Net income totaled $210.9 million, or $2.72 per diluted share for the nine months ended March 31, 2019, a 29% decrease compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2018.  This decrease in net income was primarily due to a large tax benefit recognized in fiscal 2018 as a result of the enactment of the TCJA.

Non-GAAP Results for the Quarter

On an adjusted basis for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, revenue increased 5% compared to the prior year quarter to $372.0 million. Operating income decreased 1% to $71.7 million.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, non-GAAP adjusted revenue increased 8% compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2019 to $1,136.1 million, and operating income increased 9% to $254.7 million.

According to David Foss, President and CEO, "We are pleased to report another strong quarter of revenue and operating income growth. Customer demand for Jack Henry technology solutions continues to be very strong, leading to another outstanding quarter for our sales organization.  We were also extremely pleased to have recently been recognized for the third year in a row by Forbes as one of America's Best Large Employers.  The associates at Jack Henry have created an environment that is regularly recognized as a best place to work and I couldn't be prouder of our team."

  • The decreased revenue in the services and support line for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was due to decreased deconversion revenue, partially offset by growth in our 'outsourcing and cloud' and 'in-house support' revenue streams. The increase in processing revenue was mainly driven by organic growth in each of the three components of processing revenue, which are 'remittance,' 'card,' and 'transaction and digital.' Deconversion fees, which are included within services and support, decreased $10.3 million compared to the third quarter of the prior year. Excluding deconversion fees from both periods, and revenue from fiscal 2019 acquisitions, total revenue increased 5% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the same quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, deconversion fees decreased $16.3 million compared to the prior year-to-date period. Excluding deconversion fees from both periods and revenue from fiscal 2019 acquisitions, total revenue increased 8%. The increase in Services & Support was primarily driven by increased 'outsourcing and cloud' revenue, partially due to added revenue from Ensenta, as well as increased 'in-house support' revenue, primarily from higher software usage revenue resulting partially from the addition of new customers. All components of processing revenue increased for the year-to-date period.
  • For the third quarter of fiscal 2019, core segment revenue increased 1% to $130.6 million from $129.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. Payments segment revenue increased 3% to $135.0 million, from $130.8 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from the complementary segment increased 2% to $102.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 from $100.9 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2018. Revenue in the corporate and other segment decreased 6% to $12.2 million, compared to $13.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018.
  • For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, revenue in the core segment increased 5% to $397.9 million, compared to $380.0 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2018. Payments segment revenue increased 9% to $407.2 million, from $375.1 million for the prior year-to-date period. Complementary segment revenue increased 7% to $313.1 million, up from $292.6 million in the prior year-to-date period. Revenue from the corporate and other segment decreased 9% to $41.0 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 from $44.9 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2018.

  • Cost of revenue increased 8% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and increased 4% as a percentage of revenue. Excluding costs related to deconversions, fiscal 2019 acquisitions, and bonuses provided by the Company in response to the lower tax rate resulting from the TCJA, cost of revenue increased 7%. The increased costs were primarily due to higher direct costs of product, including spending related to our ongoing project to expand our credit and debit card platform; increased headcount driving increased salaries and benefits; increased amortization expense; and increased costs related to new facilities.
  • For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, cost of revenue increased 8% compared to the equivalent period of the prior year, and increased 1% as a percentage of revenue. Excluding costs related to deconversions, fiscal 2019 acquisitions, and bonuses provided by the Company in response to the lower tax rate resulting from the TCJA, cost of revenue increased 8%, with the increase driven by the same factors discussed above.
  • Research and development expense increased for both the third quarter and year-to-date period mainly due to increased salary and personnel costs resulting from increased headcount, but remained consistent with the prior year third quarter and year-to-date periods as a percentage of total revenue.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses for both the third quarter and year-to-date period of fiscal 2019 increased mainly due to increased salaries, benefits, and commission expenses. Selling, general, and administrative expense increased 1% as a percentage of revenue for the third quarter, but remained a consistent percentage of revenue for the year-to-date period.
  • There were no sales of businesses in fiscal 2019. For the first nine months of fiscal 2018, gains on disposals of businesses totaled $1.9 million, due to the dispositions of our ATM Manager and jhaDirect product lines.
  • For the third quarter of fiscal 2019, operating income decreased 16% to $76.4 million, or 20% of revenue, compared to $90.7 million, or 24% of revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. For the year-to-date period, operating income decreased 2% to $267.9 million, or 23% of revenue, compared to operating income of $272.6 million, 25% of revenue, for the nine months ended March 31, 2018.

Net Income

Net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 was significantly impacted in the prior year by the TCJA and the related re-measurement of net deferred tax liabilities.

  • Provision for income taxes decreased in the third quarter, with an effective tax rate at 22.4% of income before income taxes, compared to 23.3% for the same quarter of the prior year. The lower effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was mainly due to the reduced U.S federal corporate tax rate effective for the current fiscal year.
  • For the nine months ended March 31, 2019, provision for income taxes increased, with an effective tax rate at 21.3% of income before income taxes, compared to (9.3)% for the same period last year. The prior nine month period included a significant tax benefit as a result of the enactment of the TCJA and re-measurement of net deferred tax liabilities. The increase in the provision for income taxes is partially offset by the reduced U.S. federal corporate tax rate of 21% effective for the current fiscal year and increased excess tax benefits recognized during fiscal 2019.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO and Treasurer, "Deconversion fees were down significantly this quarter as we predicted on the last earnings call, which is a positive for us long-term as we retain our customers and the recurring revenue, but it creates a tough comparison on a GAAP basis, which is why we continue to show operations excluding this impact on a Non-GAAP basis. With almost all new customers opting for outsourced delivery, other revenue headwinds are decreased license fees to in-house customers and implementation revenues related to outsourced customers, which must be deferred and amortized to revenue over the life of the contract. Our operating margins continue to show the headwinds created by the double costs related to the migration to our new payments platform and the new pay for performance bonus program that we rolled out at the beginning of the year which is utilizing a portion of the savings from the TCJA."

Non-GAAP Impact of Deconversion Fees, Acquisitions, Gains on Divestitures, and New Bonus Program

The table below shows our revenue and operating income (in thousands) for the third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the prior year periods, excluding the impacts of deconversion fees, fiscal 2019 acquisitions, 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, contributions of current fiscal year acquisitions, gain or loss on divestitures, and the impact of the new bonus program put in place with the positive impact of the Tax Cuts and 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 May 1, 2019; at 7:45 a.m. Central Time and investors are invited to listen at www.jackhenry.com.
