WINDSOR, Conn., July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SSNC), a global provider of investment, financial, and healthcare software-enabled services and software, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have withdrawn our quarterly and 2020 guidance, instead providing 2020 scenario analysis, based on a number of assumptions, which can be found in our Q2 2020 earnings results slides at investor.ssctech.com.

GAAP Results

SS&C reported GAAP revenue of $1,138.1 million for the second quarter of 2020, down 0.9% compared to $1,148.0 million in the second quarter of 2019.  GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2020 was $241.3 million, or 21.2% of GAAP revenue, compared to GAAP operating income of $223.5 million, or 19.5% of GAAP revenue, in 2019's second quarter, representing an 8.0% increase. 

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $169.5 million compared to GAAP net income of $121.1 million in 2019's second quarter, up 40.0%.  On a fully diluted GAAP basis, earnings per share in the second quarter of 2020 were $0.64 per share compared to earnings per share of $0.45 on a fully diluted GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2019, up 42.2%. 

Adjusted Non-GAAP Results (defined in Notes 1-4 below)

Adjusted revenue was $1,140.8 million for the second quarter of 2020, down 1.3% compared to $1,155.8 million in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2020 was $430.1 million, or 37.7% of adjusted revenue, compared to $426.2 million, or 36.9% of adjusted revenue, in 2019's second quarter, representing a 0.9% increase and an increase of 80 basis points in adjusted operating margin. 

Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $276.1 million, up 14.3% compared to $241.6 million in 2019's second quarter.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2020 were $1.04 per share, up 14.3% compared to $0.91 per share in the second quarter of 2019. 

SS&C Renews Common Stock Repurchase Program, Increases Program to $750 Million

SS&C announced that its Board of Directors ("Board") has authorized the renewal and increase of its stock repurchase program, which will enable the Company to repurchase up to $750 million in the aggregate of the company's outstanding shares of common stock.  This represents a $250 million increase from the company's previous stock repurchase program.  Under the renewed program, SS&C's proposed repurchases may be made from time to time in one or more transactions on the open market or in privately negotiated purchase and/or through other legally permissible means, depending on market conditions and in accordance with applicable rules and regulations promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The timing and amount of any shares repurchased will be determined by the company's management based on its evaluation of market conditions and other factors. Repurchases may also be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under insider trading laws. The repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. Any repurchased shares will be available for use in connection with the SS&C's stock plans and for other corporate purposes. The company's authority to repurchase shares under the renewed program shall continue until the one year anniversary of the Board's authorization, unless earlier terminated by the Board.

SS&C's COVID-19 Response

SS&C is operating in a global public health crisis.  Covid-19's impact is devastating to many and nations are being tested from human and economic perspectives.  As long as the duration and scale of the pandemic and economic slowdown remains we expect markets to be volatile. The slowdown in the global economy will take time to recover.

Due to this uncertainty, we have withdrawn our quarterly and 2020 guidance.  We are providing 2020 scenario analysis, based on a number of assumptions, which can be found in our Q2 2020 earnings results slides at investor.ssctech.com.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Cash flow provided by operations was $555.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, a 33.4% increase from $416.6 million for the prior six months.
  • Paid down $2,302.3 million of net debt since our April 2018 acquisition of DST Systems, bringing our net leverage ratio to 3.60 times consolidated EBITDA, and our net secured leverage ratio to 2.53 times consolidated EBITDA.
  • Repurchased 0.5 million shares of common stock in Q2 2020, at an average price of $58.62 per share for $27.9 million.
  • Adjusted operating income margins were 37.7% of adjusted revenue in Q2 2020 compared to 36.9 percent in Q2 2019.
  • Adjusted consolidated EBITDA increased by $0.2 million to $448.4 million in Q2 2020. Adjusted consolidated EBITDA margin was 39.3% of adjusted revenue, an increase from 38.8% of adjusted revenue in Q2 2019.
  • Daniel DelMastro was promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager of SS&C Health, and will report to Rahul Kanwar, President and COO.

"The past five months has presented unique challenges, both professionally and personally, for SS&C's global workforce.  Our global team's hard work, perseverance, talent and dedication has resonated with our 18,000 clients," says Bill Stone, Chairman and CEO of SS&C Technologies. "The critical nature of our work has proven to be indispensable.  Client satisfaction remains high, indicated by our 96.0 percent revenue retention rate, and we continue to grow in key markets. I believe our results, including a 14.3 percent increase in adjusted earnings per share and a 33.4 percent increase in year to date operating cash flow, validate our business model. Investment in our people, ownership of our technology, and fierce protection of our intellectual property are keys to SS&C's success."

Operating Cash Flow

SS&C generated net cash from operating activities of $555.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $416.6 million for the same period in 2019, representing a 33.4 percent increase.  SS&C ended the second quarter with $261.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $6,972.6 million in gross debt, for a net debt balance of $6,710.7 million.  SS&C's consolidated net leverage ratio as defined in our credit agreement stood at 3.60 times consolidated EBITDA as of June 30, 2020. SS&C's net secured leverage ratio stood at 2.53 times consolidated EBITDA as of June 30, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted consolidated EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP measures.  See the accompanying notes for the reconciliations and definitions for each of these non-GAAP measures and the reasons our management believes these measures provide useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations.

Disclosures Relating to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Note 1. Reconciliation of Revenues to Adjusted Revenues

Adjusted revenues represents revenues adjusted to include a) amounts that would have been recognized if deferred revenue were not adjusted to fair value at the date of acquisition and b) amounts that would have been recognized if not for adjustments to deferred revenue and retained earnings related to the adoption of ASC 606.  Adjusted revenues is presented because we use this measure to evaluate performance of our business against prior periods and believe it is a useful indicator of the underlying performance of our business.  Adjusted revenues is not a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  Adjusted revenues does not represent revenues, as that term is defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to revenues as an indicator of our operating performance.  Adjusted revenues as presented herein is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.  Below is a reconciliation of adjusted revenues to revenues, the GAAP measure we believe to be most directly comparable to adjusted revenues.

(2)

Other includes expenses and income that are permitted to be excluded per the terms of our Credit Agreement from Consolidated EBITDA, a financial measure used in calculating our covenant compliance.  These include expenses and income related to foreign currency transactions, facilities and workforce restructuring, legal settlements and business acquisitions.

Note 3. Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization.  Consolidated EBITDA, defined under our Credit Agreement entered into in April 2018, as amended, is used in calculating covenant compliance, and is EBITDA adjusted for certain items.  Consolidated EBITDA is calculated by subtracting from or adding to EBITDA items of income or expense described below.  Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA is calculated by subtracting acquired EBITDA (as defined below) from Consolidated EBITDA. EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA are presented because we use these measures to evaluate performance of our business and believe them to be useful indicators of an entity's debt capacity and its ability to service debt.  EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to operating income, net income or cash flows from operating activities as indicators of our operating performance.  These measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures by other companies.  The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA and Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA to net income.

(1)

Acquired EBITDA reflects the EBITDA impact of significant businesses that were acquired during the period as if the acquisition occurred at the beginning of the period, as well as cost savings enacted in connection with acquisitions.

(2)

Purchase accounting adjustments include (a) an adjustment to increase revenues by the amount that would have been recognized if deferred revenue were not adjusted to fair value at the date of acquisition and (b) an adjustment to increase personnel and commissions expense by the amount that would have been recognized if prepaid commissions and deferred personnel costs were not adjusted to fair value at the date of the acquisitions.

(3)

Other includes expenses and income that are permitted to be excluded per the terms of our Credit Agreement from Consolidated EBITDA, a financial measure used in calculating our covenant compliance.  These include expenses and income related to foreign currency transactions, investment gains and losses, facilities and workforce restructuring, legal settlements, business acquisitions and other items.

Note 4. Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and Diluted Earnings Per Share to Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share represent net income and earnings per share before amortization of intangible assets and deferred financing costs, stock-based compensation, purchase accounting adjustments and other items.  We consider adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share to be important to management and investors because they represent our operational performance exclusive of the effects of amortization of intangible assets and deferred financing costs, stock-based compensation, purchase accounting adjustments, loss on extinguishment of debt and other items, that are not operational in nature or comparable to those of our competitors.  Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are not recognized terms under GAAP.  Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share do not represent net income or diluted earnings per share, as those terms are defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or diluted earnings per share as indicators of our operating performance.  Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share as presented herein are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.  Below is a reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share to net income and diluted earnings per share, the GAAP measures we believe to be most directly comparable to adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

Purchase accounting adjustments include (a) an adjustment to increase revenues by the amount that would have been recognized if deferred revenue were not adjusted to fair value at the date of acquisition, (b) an adjustment to increase personnel and commissions expense by the amount that would have been recognized if prepaid commissions and deferred personnel costs were not adjusted to fair value at the date of the acquisitions and (c) an adjustment to decrease depreciation expense by the amount that would not have been recognized if property, plant and equipment were not adjusted to fair value at the date of acquisition.

(2)
