• Increased revenue 10% while generating strong profitability and cash flow, demonstrating superior execution
  • Achieved annual run-rate revenue synergies and operational expense synergies of approximately $600 million and $475 million, respectively
  • Repurchased $1.2 billion in shares, tripling the pace of first and second quarter buybacks

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 4, 2021– FIS® (NYSE:FIS), a global leader in financial services technology, today reported its third quarter 2021 results.

“Our team continues to execute exceptionally well,” said Gary Norcross, FIS Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re successfully leveraging our broad portfolio and global reach to speed innovation. Further, our robust cash flow enabled us to accelerate share buybacks during the third quarter without sacrificing our ability to execute our growth-focused M&A strategy.”

Third Quarter 2021

On a GAAP basis, revenue grew by more than $300 million, or 10%, to $3.5 billion. Net earnings attributable to common stockholders was $158 million or $0.26 per diluted share.

On an organic basis, which excludes the impact of foreign exchange, revenues also grew 10%. Adjusted EBITDA grew 17% to $1.6 billion. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 270 basis points (bps) to 45.2%, primarily due to high contribution margins from revenue growth as well as ongoing revenue and expense synergies. Adjusted net earnings increased 21% to $1.1 billion and adjusted net earnings per share increased 22% to $1.73 per diluted share.

Operating Segment Information

  • Merchant Solutions:
    Revenue grew 14%, including a 4% headwind created by the unusual shift of the U.S. tax reporting deadline in 2020 to July 15 from April 15. As compared to the third quarter of 2019 (pro forma for the Worldpay acquisition), revenue grew 16% to $1.2 billion as the global economy continues to recover from the ongoing pandemic. Adjusted EBITDA increased 23% over the prior year period to $600 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 380 basis points to 51.7%, primarily due to high contribution margins from new revenue as well as ongoing synergies.

    To further increase transparency, FIS is publishing quarterly volume and transaction data for its Merchant segment, and third quarter performance is described in the following paragraph. Please see the “Additional Merchant Disclosure” section below for historical quarterly volume and transaction data, dating back to the first quarter of 2019. Proforma results are included for the first three quarters of 2019.

    During the third quarter, Global Volume increased 17% to $530 billion, and Transactions increased 11% to 12.0 billion. As compared to the third quarter of 2019, Global Volume grew 23% and Transactions grew 13%. Volume growth in excess of transaction growth reflects an increase in the average dollar value of each transaction (or increased average ticket) during the period. As compared to 2019, the pace of average ticket increase slowed in the third quarter relative to that of the first and second quarters, contributing to the continued improvement in revenue yield on volume.
     

  • Banking Solutions:
    Revenue grew 8% to $1.6 billion. Banking’s strong third quarter performance is primarily due to new sales execution. On an organic basis, which excludes the impact of FX, revenue also increased 8%. Adjusted EBITDA increased 14% to $742 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 250 basis points over the prior year period to 46.1%, primarily due to revenue mix, high contribution margins from new revenue, and ongoing synergies related to the Worldpay acquisition.
     
  • Capital Market Solutions:
    Revenue grew 11% to $654 million. Capital Market’s strong third quarter performance is primarily due to robust sales of end-to-end SaaS solutions and includes an approximate 2% benefit from the timing of renewals. On an organic basis, which excludes the impact of FX, revenue increased 10%. Adjusted EBITDA increased 20% to $316 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 330 basis points over the prior year period to 48.4%, primarily due to high contribution margins from new revenue and revenue mix.

Integration Update

The Company achieved synergies related to the Worldpay acquisition, exiting the third quarter of 2021 as follows:

  • Revenue synergies of approximately $600 million on an annual run-rate basis, including strong cross-selling wins spanning the Premium Payback loyalty network, digital banking, issuer, core software and data wins. The Company expects to achieve its $700 million annual run-rate revenue synergy target by the end of the year.
  • Cost synergies of approximately $875 million, including approximately $475 million of operating expense synergies. The Company expects to achieve its $900 million annual run-rate expense synergy target by the end of the year, including operating expense synergies of approximately $500 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

As of September 30, 2021, debt outstanding totaled $19.8 billion. Third quarter net cash provided by operating activities was $1.8 billion, and free cash flow was $1.1 billion.

FIS paid dividends of $238 million and repurchased $1.2 billion in shares during the third quarter. The company tripled its pace of share repurchase during the third quarter as compared to that of the first and second quarters and has repurchased $2.0 billion in shares year-to-date. The company has 85 million shares remaining under its existing 100 million share repurchase authorization.

COVID-19 Update

We have continued to prioritize investments in solutions and services that help address the needs of our clients throughout the ongoing global pandemic in order to increase the Company’s potential to accelerate revenue growth. During the third quarter, the Company’s revenue growth continued to recover as COVID-19’s impact on our financial results lessened due to the continued opening of markets, offset in part by the COVID-19 variants.

FIS 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 and 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 constant currency revenue, organic revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net earnings, adjusted EPS, and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures may be used in this release and/or in the attached supplemental financial information.

We believe these non-GAAP measures help investors better understand the underlying fundamentals of our business. As further described below, the non-GAAP revenue and earnings measures presented eliminate items management believes are not indicative of FIS’ operating performance. The constant currency and organic revenue growth measures adjust for the effects of exchange rate fluctuations, while organic revenue growth also adjusts for acquisitions and divestitures and excludes revenue from Corporate and Other, giving investors further insight into our performance. Finally, free cash flow provides further information about the ability of our business to generate cash. For these reasons, management also uses these non-GAAP measures in its assessment and management of FIS’ performance.

As described below, our Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Earnings measures also exclude incremental and direct costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Management believes that this adjustment may help investors understand the longer-term fundamentals of our underlying business.

Constant currency revenue represents reported operating segment revenue excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates in the current period.

Organic revenue growth is constant currency revenue, as defined above, for the current period compared to an adjusted revenue base for the prior period, which is adjusted to add pre-acquisition revenue of acquired businesses for a portion of the prior year matching the portion of the current year for which the business was owned, and subtract pre-divestiture revenue for divested businesses for the portion of the prior year matching the portion of the current year for which the business was not owned, for any acquisitions or divestitures by FIS. When referring to organic revenue growth, revenues from our Corporate and Other segment, which is comprised of revenue from non-strategic businesses, are excluded.

Adjusted EBITDA reflects net earnings before interest, other income (expense), taxes, equity method investment earnings (loss), and depreciation and amortization, and excludes certain costs and other transactions that management deems non-operational in nature, the removal of which improves comparability of operating results across reporting periods. It also excludes incremental and direct costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This measure is reported to the chief operating decision maker for purposes of making decisions about allocating resources to the segments and assessing their performance. For this reason, adjusted EBITDA, as it relates to our segments, is presented in conformity with Accounting Standards Codification 280, Segment Reporting, and is excluded from the definition of non-GAAP financial measures under the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K.

Adjusted EBITDA margin reflects adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, divided by revenue.

Adjusted net earnings excludes the impact of certain costs and other transactions which management deems non-operational in nature, the removal of which improves comparability of operating results across reporting periods. It also excludes the impact of acquisition-related purchase accounting amortization and equity method investment earnings (loss), both of which are recurring. It also excludes incremental and direct costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Adjusted EPS reflects adjusted net earnings, as defined above, divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Free cash flow reflects net cash provided by operating activities, adjusted for the net change in settlement assets and obligations and excluding certain transactions that are closely associated with non-operating activities or are otherwise non-operational in nature and not indicative of future operating cash flows, including incremental and direct costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, less capital expenditures excluding capital expenditures related to the Company’s new headquarters. Free cash flow does not represent our residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, since we have mandatory debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure.

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. Further, FIS’ non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently from similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to related GAAP measures, including footnotes describing the specific adjustments, are provided in the attached schedules and in the Investor Relations section of the FIS website, www.fisglobal.com.

Forward-Looking Statements

This earnings release and today’s webcast contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about anticipated financial outcomes, including any earnings guidance or projections of the Company, projected revenue or expense synergies, business and market conditions, outlook, foreign currency exchange rates, deleveraging plans, expected dividends and share repurchases, the Company’s sales pipeline and anticipated profitability and growth, as well as other statements about our expectations, beliefs, intentions, or strategies regarding the future, or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, are forward-looking statements. These statements relate to future events and our future results and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management.

Actual results, performance or achievement could differ materially from those contained in these forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties to which forward-looking statements are subject include the following, without limitation:

  • the outbreak or recurrence of the novel coronavirus and any related variants (“COVID-19”) and measures to reduce its spread, including the impact of governmental or voluntary actions such as business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders in certain geographies;
  • the duration, including any recurrence, of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts, including reductions in consumer and business spending, and instability of the financial markets in heavily impacted areas across the globe;
  • the economic and other impacts of COVID-19 on our clients which affect the sales of our solutions and services and the implementation of such solutions;
  • the risk of losses in the event of defaults by merchants (or other parties) to which we extend credit in our card settlement operations or in respect of any chargeback liability, either of which could adversely impact liquidity and results of operations;
  • changes in general economic, business and political conditions, including those resulting from COVID-19 or other pandemics, intensified international hostilities, acts of terrorism, changes in either or both the United States and international lending, capital and financial markets and currency fluctuations;
  • the risk that other acquired businesses will not be integrated successfully or that the integration will be more costly or more time-consuming and complex than anticipated;
  • the risk that cost savings and other synergies anticipated to be realized from other acquisitions may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected;
  • the risks of doing business internationally;
  • the effect of legislative initiatives or proposals, statutory changes, governmental or other applicable regulations and/or changes in industry requirements, including privacy and cybersecurity laws and regulations;
  • the risks of reduction in revenue from the elimination of existing and potential customers due to consolidation in, or new laws or regulations affecting, the banking, retail and financial services industries or due to financial failures or other setbacks suffered by firms in those industries;
  • changes in the growth rates of the markets for our solutions;
  • the amount, declaration and payment of future dividends is at the discretion of our Board of Directors and depends on, among other things, our investment opportunities, results of operations, financial condition, cash requirements, future prospects, the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other factors that may be considered relevant by our Board of Directors, including legal and contractual restrictions;
  • failures to adapt our solutions to changes in technology or in the marketplace;
  • internal or external security breaches of our systems, including those relating to unauthorized access, theft, corruption or loss of personal information and computer viruses and other malware affecting our software or platforms, and the reactions of customers, card associations, government regulators and others to any such events;
  • the risk that implementation of software, including software updates, for customers or at customer locations or employee error in monitoring our software and platforms may result in the corruption or loss of data or customer information, interruption of business operations, outages, exposure to liability claims or loss of customers;
  • the reaction of current and potential customers to communications from us or regulators regarding information security, risk management, internal audit or other matters;
  • the risk that policies and resulting actions of the current administration in the U.S. may result in additional regulations and executive orders, as well as additional regulatory and tax costs;
  • competitive pressures on pricing related to the decreasing number of community banks in the U.S., the development of new disruptive technologies competing with one or more of our solutions, increasing presence of international competitors in the U.S. market and the entry into the market by global banks and global companies with respect to certain competitive solutions, each of which may have the impact of unbundling individual solutions from a comprehensive suite of solutions we provide to many of our customers;
  • the failure to innovate in order to keep up with new emerging technologies, which could impact our solutions and our ability to attract new, or retain existing, customers;
  • an operational or natural disaster at one of our major operations centers;
  • failure to comply with applicable requirements of payment networks or changes in those requirements;
  • fraud by merchants or bad actors; and
  • other risks detailed in the “Risk Factors” and other sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are inherently subject to uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Except as required by applicable law or regulation, we do not undertake (and expressly disclaim) any obligation and do not intend to publicly update or review any of these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Free cash flow reflects adjusted cash flows from operations less capital expenditures (additions to property and equipment and additions to software, excluding capital spend related to the construction of our new headquarters). Free cash flow does not represent our residual cash flows available for discretionary expenditures, since we have mandatory debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure.

     

(1)

 

Adjusted cash flows from operations and free cash flow for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 exclude cash payments for certain acquisition, integration and other costs (see Note 2 to Exhibit E), net of related tax impact. The related tax impact totaled $20 million and $23 million for the three months and $65 million and $70 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

 

 

(2)

 

Capital expenditures for free cash flow exclude capital spend related to the construction of our new headquarters totaling $27 million and $9 million for the three months and $80 million and $30 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTAL GAAP TO NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS — UNAUDITED

(In millions, except per share amounts)

       

Exhibit E (continued)

       
Notes to Unaudited – Supplemental GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.
       
The adjustments are as follows:
       

(1)

   

This item represents purchase price amortization expense on all intangible assets acquired through various Company acquisitions, including customer relationships, contract value, trademarks and tradenames, and technology assets. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item also includes $42 million of incremental amortization expense associated with shortened estimated useful lives and accelerated amortization methods for certain acquired software driven by the Company’s Platform initiatives that primarily include enabling clients to easily consume the breadth of our capabilities using microservices as well as process automation and consolidation of technology platforms to speed new solution and service innovation over approximately the next three years. The Company has excluded the impact of purchase price amortization expense as such amounts can be significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Although the Company excludes these amounts from its non-GAAP expenses, the Company believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such assets have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangible assets.

 

   

 

(2)

   

This item represents acquisition and integration costs primarily related to the acquisition of Worldpay as well as certain other costs, including costs associated with the Company’s Platform initiatives, described in Note (1), totaling $64 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. This item also includes costs related to data center consolidation activities totaling $4 million and $20 million for the three months and $32 million and $60 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company also recorded incremental charges directly related to COVID-19 of $14 million and $41 million for the three months and $33 million and $56 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item also includes $104 million in accelerated stock compensation expense to reflect the impact of establishing a Qualified Retirement Equity Program that modified unvested equity awards outstanding at January 1, 2021. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, for purposes of calculating Adjusted net earnings, this item also includes $60 million of incremental amortization expense associated with shortened estimated useful lives and accelerated amortization methods for certain software and deferred contract cost assets driven by the Company’s Platform initiatives, described in Note (1), which were instituted in the third quarter.

 

   

 

(3)

   

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item represents impairment of certain software and deferred contract cost assets driven by the Company’s Platform initiatives described in Note (1).

 

   

 

(4)

   

Non-operating (income) expense primarily consists of other income and expense items outside of the Company’s operating activities, including fair value adjustments on certain non-operating assets and liabilities and foreign currency transaction remeasurement gains and losses. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item includes net gains on equity security investments without readily determinable fair values of $126 million and $214 million, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item also includes $225 million related to the gain on the sale of our equity ownership interest in Cardinal Holdings, LP and a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $528 million relating to tender premiums, make-whole amounts, and fees; the write-off of unamortized bond discounts and debt issuance costs; and losses on related derivative instruments.

 

   

 

(5)

   

This item represents our equity method investment earnings or loss and was predominantly due to our equity ownership interest in Cardinal Holdings, LP, which was sold on April 29, 2021.

 

   

 

(6)

   

For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, this item represents the one-time net remeasurement of certain deferred tax liabilities due to the increase in the U.K. corporate statutory tax rate from 19% to 25% effective April 1, 2023, enacted on June 10, 2021. For the 2020 periods, this item represents the one-time net remeasurement of certain deferred tax liabilities due to the increase in the U.K. corporate statutory tax rate from 17% to 19% enacted on July 22, 2020.
