"With an exceptional fourth quarter, Broadridge reported strong fiscal year 2020 results including 10% Recurring revenue growth, 8% Adjusted EPS growth, and record closed sales," said Tim Gokey, Broadridge's CEO. "Our full-year performance despite event-driven headwinds and the ongoing pandemic further validates the Broadridge business model and value proposition, and gives us even greater confidence in our long-term opportunity.

"I am especially pleased to report that we have achieved our three-year objectives for Recurring revenue growth, margin expansion, and Adjusted EPS growth," Mr. Gokey added. "Our progress against these goals is a strong indication that our strategic focus on industry solutions for governance, capital markets, and wealth management is on-track.

"Despite macroeconomic uncertainty, our outlook for fiscal 2021 calls for continued organic growth, anchored by a record revenue backlog, and balances cost discipline and increased investment that will position us to take advantage of the recovery and drive long-term growth. To further underscore our confidence in our outlook, we are raising our annual dividend for the fourteenth consecutive year, every year since becoming a public company," Mr. Gokey concluded.

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 compared to Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2019

  • Total revenues increased 12% to $1,362 million from $1,211 million in the prior year period.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased 14% to $930 million from $813 million. The increase in Recurring fee revenues was driven by high organic growth. Organic growth (10pts) included internal growth (4pts) with positive growth in our Global Technology and Operations ("GTO") segment driven by higher trading volumes resulting from market volatility coupled with internal growth in our Investor Communication Solutions ("ICS") segment driven by strong stock record growth and a shift of proxy communications from the third quarter into the fourth quarter as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic ("Covid-19"). Growth was also attributable to acquisitions (5pts).
    • Event-driven fee revenues increased $17 million, or 33%, to $68 million, mainly from higher mutual fund proxy activity.
    • Distribution revenues increased $31 million, or 8%, to $409 million, driven by the increase in fee revenues.
    • Currencies negatively impacted revenues by $13 million due to a combination of foreign acquisitions, continued international revenue growth, and the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against other currencies as compared to the prior year period.
  • Operating income was $299 million, an increase of $58 million, or 24%. Operating income margin increased to 21.9%, compared to 19.9% in the prior year period.
    • Adjusted Operating income was $335 million, an increase of $68 million, or 25%. Adjusted Operating income margin increased to 24.6%, compared to 22.1% for the prior year period.
    • The increase in Operating income and Adjusted Operating income was due to the impact of higher Recurring fee revenues and higher event-driven fee revenues.
  • Interest expense, net was $16 million, an increase of $4 million, driven by an increase in interest expense from higher borrowings.
  • The effective tax rate was 22.1% compared to 20.3% in the prior year period. The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily attributable to the recognition of lower excess tax benefits attributable to stock-based compensation of $6 million in the current year period, compared to $10 million in the comparable prior year period.
  • Net earnings increased 25% to $230 million and Adjusted Net earnings increased 24% to $251 million.
    • Diluted earnings per share increased 27% to $1.97, compared to $1.55 in the prior year period and Adjusted earnings per share increased 25% to $2.15, compared to $1.72 in the prior year period.
    • The increase in Diluted earnings per share and Adjusted earnings per share were primarily due to the increase in Recurring fee revenues and higher event-driven fee revenues.

Segment and Other Results for the Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 compared to Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2019

Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, the results for the Company's Advisor Solutions services that were previously reported in our ICS segment are now reported within the GTO segment. As a result, our prior period segment results have been revised to reflect this change.

Investor Communication Solutions

  • ICS total revenues were $1,093 million, an increase of $113 million, or 12%.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased $66 million or 12%, to $616 million. The increase was attributable to revenues from net new business (6pts), internal growth (4pts) and acquisitions (2pts). Internal growth was positively impacted by strong stock record growth and a shift of proxy communications from the third quarter into the fourth quarter as a result of Covid-19.
    • Event-driven fee revenues increased $17 million, or 33%, to $68 million, mainly from higher mutual fund proxy activity.
    • Distribution revenues increased $31 million, or 8%, to $409 million driven by the increase in fee revenue.
  • ICS earnings before income taxes were $260 million, an increase of $42 million, or 19%, primarily due to strong stock record growth and an increase in proxy communications into the fourth quarter as a result of Covid-19, the contribution from the increase in other Recurring fee revenues and the increase in event-driven fee revenues. Pre-tax margins increased to 23.8% from 22.2%.

Global Technology and Operations

  • GTO Recurring fee revenues were $314 million, an increase of $51 million, or 19%. The increase was attributable to the combination of revenues from acquisitions (10pts) and organic growth (9pts). Organic growth benefited from higher trading volumes resulting from market volatility and revenue from onboarding of new sales.
  • GTO earnings before income taxes were $72 million, an increase of $7 million, or 11%, compared to $65 million in the prior year period. The increased earnings were primarily due to higher organic revenues, partially offset by expenditures to implement and support new business. Pre-tax margins decreased to 23.0% from 24.7%.

Other

  • Other Loss before income tax decreased 28% to $39 million from $55 million in the prior year period. The decreased loss was primarily due to lower compensation expense versus the prior year period and gain on sale of investments.

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year 2020 compared to Fiscal Year 2019

  • Total revenues increased 4% to $4,529 million from $4,362 million in the prior year period.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased 10% to $3,036 million from $2,760 million. The increase in Recurring fee revenues includes growth from acquisitions (6pts) and Organic growth (4pts).
    • Event-driven fee revenues decreased $66 million, or 27%, to $178 million, due to decreased activity in mutual fund proxy, equity special meetings and equity contests compared to the prior year period.
    • Distribution revenues decreased $9 million, or 1%, to $1,451 million, primarily from the decrease in event-driven fee revenues.
    • Currencies negatively impacted revenues by $34 million due to a combination of foreign acquisitions, continued international revenue growth, and the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against other currencies.
  • Operating income was $625 million, a decrease of $28 million, or 4%. Operating income margin decreased to 13.8%, compared to 15.0% for the prior year period.
    • Adjusted Operating income was $795 million, an increase of $48 million, or 6%, Adjusted Operating income margin increased to 17.5%, compared to 17.1% in the prior period.
    • The decrease in Operating income margin was partly due to charges associated with the information technology agreement with International Business Machines for private cloud services ("IBM Private Cloud Agreement"). Adjusted Operating income margin increased due to an increase in Recurring fee revenues, partially offset by a decrease in event-driven fee revenues.
  • Interest expense, net was $59 million, an increase of $17 million, or 41%, driven by an increase in interest expense from higher borrowings primarily related to acquisitions.
  • The effective tax rate was 20.2% compared to 20.6%. The effective tax rate was lowered by higher discrete tax benefits, partially offset by lower excess tax benefits of $16 million from $19 million in the prior year period.
  • Net earnings decreased 4% to $462 million and Adjusted Net earnings increased 6% to $588 million.
    • Diluted earnings per share decreased 3% to $3.95, compared to $4.06 in the prior year period and Adjusted earnings per share increased 8% to $5.03, compared to $4.66 in the prior year period.
    • The decrease in Diluted earnings per share was primarily due to the decrease in event-driven fee revenues, charges associated with the IBM Private Cloud Agreement, and higher acquisition amortization expense, partially offset by higher Recurring fee revenues. The increase in Adjusted earnings per share was primarily due to higher Recurring fee revenues, partially offset by a decrease in event-driven fee revenues.

Segment and Other Results for Fiscal Year 2020 compared to Fiscal Year 2019

Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, the results for the Company's Advisor Solutions services that were previously reported in our ICS segment are now reported within the GTO segment. As a result, our prior period segment results have been revised to reflect this change.

Investor Communication Solutions

  • ICS total revenues were $3,491 million, an increase of $23 million, or 1%.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased $98 million, or 6%, to $1,862 million. The increase was attributable to organic growth (3pts) and revenues from acquisitions (2pts). Organic growth reflected continued growth from new sales. Internal growth was negative (-1pts) as 10% position growth in annual equity proxy communications and 2% position growth for mutual fund and exchange traded funds interims were offset by lower customer communications volumes and lower revenue from other services.
    • Event-driven fee revenues decreased $66 million, or 27%, to $178 million, due to decreased activity in mutual fund proxy, equity special meetings and equity contests compared to the prior year period.
    • Distribution revenues decreased $9 million, or 1%, to $1,451 million, from the decrease in event-driven fee revenues, which more than offset the impact of higher Recurring fee revenues.
  • ICS earnings before income taxes were $464 million, a decrease of $42 million, or 8%, due to lower event-driven fee activity more than offsetting the contribution from higher Recurring fee revenues. Pre-tax margins decreased to 13.3% from 14.6%.

Global Technology and Operations

  • GTO Recurring fee revenues were $1,174 million, an increase of $178 million, or 18%. Revenue from acquisitions, including software license sales, contributed (11pts) to the increase and organic growth contributed (7pts). Organic growth was driven by both net new business and internal growth, as internal growth was driven by higher trading volumes resulting from market volatility.
  • GTO earnings before income taxes were $245 million, an increase of $32 million, or 15%, compared to $213 million in the prior year period. The increased earnings were due to higher revenues from acquisitions and higher organic revenues, partially offset by the impact of expenditures to implement and support new business and the amortization of acquired intangibles. Pre-tax margins decreased to 20.9% from 21.3%.

Other

  • Other Pre-tax loss increased 12% to $146 million from $131 million in the prior year period. The increased loss was primarily due to charges associated with the IBM Private Cloud Agreement and higher interest expense versus the prior year period, partially offset by lower compensation expense and gain on sale of investments.

Dividend Declaration and Increase

On August 10, 2020, Broadridge's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.575 per share payable on October 5, 2020 to stockholders of record on September 15, 2020. This declaration reflects the Board's approval of an increase in the annual dividend amount by 6% from $2.16 to $2.30 per share, subject to the discretion of the Board to declare quarterly dividends. With this increase, the Company's annual dividend has increased for the 14th 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) IBM Private Cloud Charges, (iv) the Gain on Sale of a Joint Venture Investment, and (v) Covid-19 Related Expenses. 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. IBM Private Cloud Charges represent a charge on the hardware assets to be transferred to IBM and other charges related to the IBM Private Cloud Agreement. The Gain on Sale of a Joint Venture Investment represents a non-operating, cash gain on the sale of one of the Company's joint venture investments. Covid-19 Related Expenses represents certain non-recurring expenses associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

We exclude IBM Private Cloud Charges, the Gain on Sale of a Joint Venture Investment, and Covid-19 Related Expenses from our Adjusted Operating income and other 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. We also exclude the impact of Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, as these non-cash amounts are significantly impacted by the timing and size of individual acquisitions and do not factor into the Company's capital allocation decisions, management compensation metrics or multi-year objectives. Furthermore, management believes that this adjustment enables better comparison of our results as Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property will not recur in future periods once such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Although we exclude Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property from our adjusted earnings measures, our management believes that it is important for investors to understand that these intangible assets contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangible assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangible assets.

Free Cash Flows

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.
