"Broadridge delivered another strong quarter, with 16% recurring revenue and 10% Adjusted EPS growth," said Tim Gokey, Broadridge's CEO. "Our growth is being propelled by long-term trends and by the continued execution of our strategy.

"Broadridge is poised to deliver another year of strong growth. Based on our strong performance to date and visibility into our seasonally larger fourth quarter, we continue to expect fiscal year 2022 recurring revenue growth at the high end of our 12-15% range and are increasing our expectations for Adjusted EPS growth to 13-15%, up from 11-15% previously. 

"Our strong fiscal year 2022 results are building on the double-digit top- and bottom-line growth we delivered in fiscal year 2021, and Broadridge is well positioned to deliver at the higher end of our three-year growth objectives."

Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 compared to Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021

  • Total revenues increased 10% to $1,534 million from $1,390 million in the prior year period.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased $139 million, or 16%, from $873 million. The increase was driven by 3pts of Net New Business and 3pts of Internal Growth. Growth in Net New Business contributed to growth in both ICS and GTO recurring fee revenues, while the contribution from Internal Growth was driven by higher Record Growth in our ICS business from equity positions of 17% and interim positions of 10%. Growth from acquisitions of 9pts was primarily driven by our Itiviti acquisition which closed in May 2021.
    • Event-driven fee revenues decreased $14 million, or 20%, to $59 million, primarily due to the decrease in volume of equity contest and other communications.
    • Distribution revenues increased $25 million, or 6%, to $472 million, primarily driven by higher revenues from customer communications, including the impact of a current year postage rate increase of approximately $25 million, offset by lower volumes of regulatory mailings.
  • Operating income was $246 million, an increase of $7 million, or 3%. Operating income margin decreased to 16.0%, compared to 17.2% for the prior year period due to higher amortization expense from acquired intangible assets, an increase in low-margin distribution revenues, growth investments and other expenses, more than offsetting growth in recurring fee revenues.
    • Adjusted Operating income was $313 million, an increase of $30 million, or 10%. The increase was driven by higher recurring fee revenues, including from the acquisition of Itiviti, partially offset by growth investments and other expenses. Adjusted Operating income margin was unchanged at 20.4%. An increase in pass through distribution revenues negatively impacted margins by 100 basis points.
  • Interest expense, net was $20 million, an increase of $8 million, primarily due to an increase in debt outstanding related to the May 2021 acquisition of Itiviti.
  • The effective tax rate was 21.0% compared to 23.9% in the prior year period. The decrease in the effective tax rate was driven by higher total discrete tax items.
  • Net earnings increased 7% to $177 million and Adjusted Net earnings increased 10% to $228 million.
    • Diluted earnings per share increased 6% to $1.49, compared to $1.40 in the prior year period, and Adjusted earnings per share increased 10% to $1.93, compared to $1.76 in the prior year period.

Segment and Other Results for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 compared to Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021

Investor Communication Solutions ("ICS")

  • ICS total revenues were $1,161 million, an increase of $64 million, or 6%.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased $53 million or 9%, to $630 million. The increase was attributable to 4pts of revenue from Net New Business and 6pts of revenue from Internal Growth. The Internal Growth contribution was driven by higher Record Growth volume in equity positions of 17% and interim positions of 10%.
    • Event-driven fee revenues decreased $14 million, or 20%, to $59 million, primarily due to the decrease in volume of equity contest and other communications.
    • Distribution revenues increased $25 million, or 6%, to $472 million primarily driven by higher revenues from customer communications, including the impact of a current year postage rate increase of approximately $25 million, offset by lower volumes of regulatory mailings.
  • ICS earnings before income taxes were $221 million, an increase of $5 million, or 3%. The increase was due to an increase in recurring fee revenues. Pre-tax margins decreased to 19.0% from 19.6%. Amortization expense from acquired intangibles decreased to $16 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022 from $21 million in the prior period.

Global Technology and Operations ("GTO")

  • GTO recurring fee revenues were $381 million, an increase of $85 million, or 29%, driven by 27pts of growth from recent acquisitions, primarily Itiviti, as well as 3pts of Net New Business from onboarding of new clients, partially offset by a 1pt reduction in Internal Growth primarily resulting from a decline in Internal Trade Growth.
  • GTO earnings before income taxes were $50 million, a decrease of $6 million, or 10%. The decrease was driven primarily by an increase of $86 million in operating costs from acquisitions, primarily as a result of the Itiviti acquisition, as compared to revenue from acquisitions of $81 million. Pre-tax margins decreased to 13.1% from 18.7%. Amortization expense from acquired intangibles increased to $47 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022 from $11 million in the prior year period primarily as a result of the Itiviti acquisition.

Other

  • Other loss before income tax decreased to $45 million from $51 million in the prior year period, primarily due to $19 million in lower acquisition-related costs resulting from the fiscal year 2021 acquisition of Itiviti, partially offset by $8 million in higher interest expense due to an increase in average debt outstanding related to the fiscal 2021 acquisition of Itiviti.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Fiscal Year 2022 compared to the Nine Months Fiscal Year 2021

  • Total revenues increased 15% to $3,986 million from $3,462 million in the prior year period.
    • Recurring fee revenues increased 17% to $2,560 million from $2,195 million, including 4 pts of growth from onboarding of Net New Business, and 3 pts from Internal Growth. Growth in Net New Business contributed to growth in both ICS and GTO recurring fee revenues, while the contribution from Internal Growth was driven by higher Record Growth in our ICS business from interim positions of 15% and equity positions of 21%. Growth from acquisitions was 9 pts, most notably from our Itiviti acquisition which closed in May 2021.
    • Event-driven fee revenues increased $37 million, or 22%, to $200 million, primarily due to increased mutual fund proxy activity.
    • Distribution revenues increased $119 million, or 11%, to $1,241 million, primarily driven by an increase in volume of recurring fee revenue mailings, primarily customer communications mailings, of $69 million, and a current year postage rate increase which contributed an incremental approximately $50 million to distribution revenues.
  • Operating income was $418 million, an increase of $21 million, or 5%. Operating income margin decreased to 10.5%, compared to 11.5% for the prior year period due to higher amortization expense from acquired intangible assets, an increase in low-margin distribution revenues, growth investments and other expenses, more than offsetting growth in recurring and event-driven fee revenues and the absence of the real estate realignment charge that occurred in the prior year period.
    • Adjusted Operating income was $631 million, an increase of $78 million, or 14%. The increase was driven by higher recurring revenues, including from the acquisition of Itiviti, and event-driven fee revenues, partially offset by growth investments and other expenses. Adjusted Operating income margin was 15.8% compared to 16.0% for the prior year period. An increase in pass through distribution revenues negatively impacted margins by 70 basis points.
  • Interest expense, net was $64 million, an increase of $27 million, primarily due to an increase in debt outstanding related to the May 2021 acquisition of Itiviti.
  • The effective tax rate was 17.7% compared to 20.2% in the prior year period. The decrease in the effective tax rate was driven by higher total discrete tax items.

    • Diluted earnings per share increased 1% to $2.46, compared to $2.44 in the prior year period, and Adjusted earnings per share increased 10% to $3.81, compared to $3.47 in the prior year period.

    • Recurring fee revenues increased $134 million, or 10%, to $1,468 million. The increase was attributable to 5pts of revenue from Net New Business and 5pts of revenue from Internal Growth. The contribution from Internal Growth was driven by higher Record Growth in interim positions of 15% and equity positions of 21%.
    • Event-driven fee revenues increased $37 million, or 22%, to $200 million, primarily due to increased volume of mutual fund proxy activity.
    • Distribution revenues increased $119 million, or 11%, to $1,241 million primarily driven by an increase in volume of recurring fee revenue mailings, primarily customer communications mailings, of $69 million, and the current year postage rate increase which contributed an incremental approximately $50 million to distribution revenues.
  • ICS earnings before income taxes were $362 million, an increase of $53 million, or 17%. The increase was driven by higher recurring and event-driven fee revenues.

Pre-tax margins decreased to 9.4% from 20.2%. Amortization expense from acquired intangibles increased to $143 million in the first nine months of fiscal year 2022 from $32 million in the prior year period primarily as a result of the fiscal 2021 Itiviti acquisition.

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. 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, and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. 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, each as adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items the exclusion of which management believes provides insight regarding our ongoing operating performance. Depending on the period presented, these adjusted measures exclude the impact of certain of the following items: (i) Amortization of Acquired Intangibles and Purchased Intellectual Property, (ii) Acquisition and Integration Costs, (iii) Real Estate Realignment and Covid-19 Related Expenses, (iv) Investment Gains, (v) Software Charge, and (vi) Loss on Acquisition-Related Financial Instrument. 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. Real Estate Realignment and Covid-19 Related Expenses are comprised of two major components: Real Estate Realignment Expenses, and Covid-19 Related Expenses. Real Estate Realignment Expenses are expenses associated with the exit of certain of the Company's leased facilities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which consist of the impairment of certain right of use assets, leasehold improvements and equipment, as well as other related facility exit expenses directly resulting from, and attributable to, the exit of these leased facilities. Covid-19 Related Expense are direct and incremental expenses incurred by the Company to protect the health and safety of Broadridge associates during the Covid-19 outbreak, including expenses associated with monitoring the temperatures for associates entering our facilities, enhancing the safety of our office environment in preparation for workers to return to Company facilities on a more regular basis, ensuring proper social distancing in our production facilities, personal protective equipment, enhanced cleaning measures in our facilities, and other safety related expenses. Investment Gains represent non-operating, non-cash gains on privately held investments. Software Charge represents a charge related to an internal use software product that is no longer expected to be used. Loss on Acquisition-Related Financial Instrument represents a non-operating loss on a financial instrument designed to minimize the Company's foreign exchange risk associated with the acquisition of Itiviti.

We exclude Acquisition and Integration Costs, Real Estate Realignment and Covid-19 Related Expenses, Investment Gains, the Software Charge and the Loss on Acquisition-Related Financial Instrument from our Adjusted Operating income (as applicable) and other adjusted earnings measures because excluding such information provides us with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business and enhances comparability across fiscal reporting periods, as these items are not reflective of our underlying operations or performance. 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 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 plus Proceeds from asset sales, 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.
