Interactive Data Reports Third-Quarter 2011 Results


October 27, 2011 - BEDFORD, MA

Interactive Data Corporation today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011. Please note that Interactive Data's third-quarter 2010 results detailed below reflect the predecessor period prior to the Company's acquisition (from July 1, 2010 through July 29, 2010) and the successor period following it (from July 30, 2010 through September 30, 2010) on a combined basis. All non-GAAP financial measures with applicable reconciliations, including those for the combined periods, are set forth on the pages following the financial tables of this press release.

Interactive Data's third-quarter 2011 revenue increased 10.1% to a record $217.9 million from $197.9 million in the third quarter of 2010. Third-quarter 2010 revenue was reduced by $2.3 million due to the purchase accounting for the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates and the reduction in third-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, Interactive Data's organic (non-GAAP) revenue grew 6.7% from the third quarter in 2010.

Interactive Data's third-quarter 2011 income from operations was $30.8 million, compared with a loss from operations of $85.9 million in same period one year ago. The third-quarter 2010 loss from operations included merger costs of $100.8 million. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) for the third quarter of 2011 was a Company record $87.4 million. This is 12.7% higher than $77.5 million in the same period one year ago.

"Our third-quarter 2011 results reflect continued progress across our business," stated Mason Slaine, Interactive Data's president and chief executive officer. "Our revenue growth during the third quarter of 2011 was driven primarily by ongoing strength in our Pricing and Reference Data business, and continued expansion of our Real-Time Services business largely resulting from another strong showing in our Interactive Data 7ticks product area. We converted our revenue growth into higher adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow this quarter as we balanced overall operating discipline with accelerated investment in key product and technology initiatives. As we move forward, we are well positioned to continue addressing the evolving needs of our customers worldwide."

Segment Reporting and Related Operating Highlights

Institutional Services Segment:

  • Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data reported third-quarter 2011 revenue of $141.0 million, a 9.3% increase over the third quarter of 2010. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $1.5 million in third-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, third-quarter 2011 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this business increased by 6.6% from the same period last year. This business produced a strong quarter of new sales as demand across its global customer base for its evaluated pricing and reference data services remained healthy. During the third quarter of 2011, Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data added local evaluated pricing resources in Germany and the business also recently announced that it is working with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to develop a set of daily reports designed to provide transparency into market activity related to U.S. structured securities.

  • Interactive Data Real-Time Services generated third-quarter 2011 revenue of $48.7 million, which is 19.5% higher than the same quarter last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $0.6 million in third-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, third-quarter 2011 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this business increased 13.2%. The organic revenue growth for this business primarily reflects strong growth in the Interactive Data 7ticks business, as well as expansion within Interactive Data's web-based solutions product area. During the third quarter of 2011, Emmanuel Doe, who most recently served as Global Business Manager for the Thomson Reuters Enterprise segment focusing on the high frequency trading market, was appointed president of Interactive Data's Trading Solutions Group, which includes the Company's real-time data and trading infrastructure services.

  • BondEdge Solutions, which was rebranded in July 2011 and was formerly known as Interactive Data Fixed Income Analytics, reported revenue for the third quarter of 2011 of $8.3 million, which declined by 4.8% from the same quarter last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $0.1 million in third-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, third-quarter 2011 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this business decreased by 5.7%.

Active Trader Services Segment:

  • Interactive Data's Desktop Solutions business reported third-quarter 2011 revenue of $19.8 million, an increase of 2.0% from the same period last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $0.2 in third-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, third-quarter 2011 organic revenue was essentially unchanged from the third quarter of 2010 as the impact from lower total subscribers was offset by higher average subscription fees. As of September 30, 2011, Desktop Solutions reported approximately 56,500 total subscribers, a decline of 4.5% from the same period last year with subscriber declines for its various active trader platforms partially offset by strong subscriber growth within the Market-Q platform.

Other Third-Quarter 2011 Financial and Operating Highlights

Effects of Foreign Exchange:

  • Interactive Data's third-quarter 2011 revenue was favorably impacted by $4.1 million due to the effects of foreign exchange primarily resulting from a weaker US dollar against the GBP and the Euro in comparison with the third quarter of 2010. Total costs and expenses in the third quarter of 2011 were $4.0 million higher as a result of the effects of foreign exchange. The net positive effect of foreign exchange on third-quarter 2011 operating income was $0.1 million.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • As of September 30, 2011, Interactive Data had cash and cash equivalents of $217.2 million, a $29.2 million increase over second-quarter 2011 levels. The Company's total debt outstanding as of September 30, 2011, was approximately $2.0 billion.

Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011

  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, Interactive Data reported revenue of $645.7 million, an increase of $56.9 million, or 9.7%, from $588.8 million in the same period last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $2.3 million in revenue for the first nine months of 2010 associated with the deferred revenue adjustment, organic revenue grew by 7.2% during the first nine months of 2011.

  • Interactive Data's income from operations for the first nine months of 2011 was $68.5 million, compared with a loss from operations of $5.9 million in the same period one year ago. For the first nine months of 2011, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) increased by 13.9% to $245.9 million from $215.9 million in the same period one year ago.

Interactive Data Corporation will host a conference call to discuss the Company's third-quarter 2011 results on Friday, October 28, 2011 at 8:30 a.m. ET. The dial-in number for the conference call is (785) 424-1057 and the related access code is IDCQ311. For those who cannot listen to this broadcast, a replay of the call will be available from October 28 at 12:00 p.m. until Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 12:00 p.m., and it can be accessed by dialing (402) 530-9025 or (800) 695-1564 (no access code is required).

Non-GAAP Information

In addition to presenting our results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also disclose the following non-GAAP information:

  • Management includes information regarding organic revenue. Organic revenue excludes the effects of foreign currency exchange rates, adjustments related to the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue, and, if applicable, the contribution of businesses recently acquired (and related intercompany eliminations as appropriate). Management believes reporting organic revenue facilitates period-to-period comparisons, and provides a better understanding of underlying business trends and our future revenue growth prospects.

  • Management includes organic revenue for our Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data, Interactive Data Real-Time Services, BondEdge Solutions (formerly Interactive Data Fixed Income Analytics) and Interactive Data Desktop Solutions businesses because management believes this additional level of detail provides further insight into underlying trends and how the individual business areas are performing. In addition, since we have historically reported revenue for these businesses to the investment community as part of our reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, we believe that continuing to offer such information provides consistency in our financial reporting.

  • Management includes information regarding earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). We also include information regarding adjusted EBITDA, which we define as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges and benefits, adjustments related to the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue, and other non-cash, non-operational or non-recurring items. In addition, management also includes information regarding pro forma adjusted EBITDA. We define this metric as earnings, excluding all of the above factors as well as other adjustments permitted under the Company's senior secured credit facilities. Management considers these measures to be important indicators of the Company's operational profitability and cash generation strength and a good measure of the Company's historical operating trend because it eliminates items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course of business. In addition, the Company's pro forma adjusted EBITDA measure is based on the definition of EBITDA set forth in the agreements governing the Company's senior secured credit facilities.

  • Management includes information regarding free cash flow, which we define as adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures. Management considers free cash flow as another important measure of the Company's cash generation strength that supports the Company's ability to repay its debt obligations and invest in future growth through new business development activities or acquisitions.

  • Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company's core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. Such measures are also used by management in their financial and operating decision-making, and for forecasting and planning purposes. In addition, management also considers pro forma adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator which can be used for the purpose of analyzing covenant compliance under the Company's senior secured credit facilities.

  • The non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's results of operations included in this press release should not be considered in isolation from comparable measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for the Company's results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the accompanying tables. The non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(1) Interactive Data's adjusted EBITDA excludes items that are either not
part of the Company's ongoing core operations, do not require a cash
outlay or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course. In
addition to excluding the aforementioned items, Interactive Data's pro
forma adjusted EBITDA also reflects other adjustments permitted under
the Company's senior secured credit facilities. The Company's pro forma
adjusted EBITDA measure is based on the definition of EBITDA set forth
in the agreements governing the Company's senior secured credit
facilities. Please note that the sum of certain amounts may not equal
the total due to rounding.

(2) Other non-recurring charges include the impact of the deferred revenue
adjustment, the loss on extinguishment of debt, facility consolidation
costs, and severance and retention expenses.

(3) Other charges include management fees, earnout-related expense, non-cash
foreign exchange expense, acquisition-related adjustments, professional
fees related to the registration of the Company's debt securities, and
other costs.

(4) Adjusted EBITDA margin and pro forma adjusted EBITDA margin are
calculated by taking each EBITDA measure and dividing it by non-GAAP
revenue (total revenue less deferred revenue adjustment).

(5) Pro forma cost savings of up to a maximum of $30 million annually is an
adjustment permitted under the Company's credit agreements for
activities that may include, but are not limited to, the consolidation
of a number of legacy organizational silos, technology platforms and
content databases.
