Third Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Q3 2022 total company revenue growth was 7.5% on a constant currency basis.
  • Q3 2022 organic growth was 1.6%, with continued strong performance from Advent, I&IM, Private Markets, and Retirement solutions.
  • Q3 2022 financial services organic growth, excluding the healthcare business, was 3.3%, which represents 94% of our revenues.
  • SS&C generated net cash from operating activities of $317.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022.
  • Q3 2022 we bought back 3.7 million shares for $214.5 million, at an average price of $57.62 per share.
  • SS&C reported adjusted consolidated EBITDA attributable to SS&C of $501.7 million for Q3 2022.

  • Completed the acquisition of Tier1, a leading provider of sell-side CRM solutions targeting capital markets and investment banks.

"SS&C's results for the third quarter 2022 continue to be impacted by weak market conditions, FX headwinds, and rising interest rates. While these environmental factors are challenging, our team is focused, our clients remain engaged, and pipelines are full," says Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We had a strong turnout at our SS&C Deliver Conference in October, where we showcased the latest and greatest solutions the industry has to offer. Our margin story continues to improve - we increased EBITDA margins 260 basis points from last quarter as we control variable costs, reduce our real estate footprint, and utilize the Blue Prism RPA technology across our organization."

Operating Cash Flow

SS&C generated net cash from operating activities of $764.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $944.9 million for the same period in 2021, a 19.1% decrease. SS&C ended the third quarter with $401.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and $7,298.6 million in gross debt. SS&C's net debt balance as defined in our credit agreement, which excludes cash and cash equivalents of $151.6 million held at DomaniRx, LLC was $7,048.3 million as of September 30, 2022. SS&C's consolidated net leverage ratio as defined in our credit agreement stood at 3.51 times consolidated EBITDA attributable to SS&C as of September 30, 2022. SS&C's net secured leverage ratio stood at 2.52 times consolidated EBITDA attributable to SS&C as of September 30, 2022.

SS&C does not provide reconciliations of guidance for Adjusted Revenues and Adjusted Net Income to comparable GAAP measures, in reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception provided under Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. SS&C is unable, without unreasonable efforts, to forecast certain items required to develop meaningful comparable GAAP financial measures. These items include acquisition transactions and integration, foreign exchange rate changes, as well as other non-cash and other adjustments as defined under the Company's Credit agreement, that are difficult to predict in advance in order to include in a GAAP estimate. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on Q4 2022 and FY 2022 GAAP financial results.

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.

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)

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.

(3)

On July 15, 2021, we entered into a joint venture named DomaniRx, LLC in which we are the majority interest holder and
primary beneficiary. As such, we consolidate DomaniRx, LLC as a variable interest entity. Adjusted operating income
attributable to noncontrolling interest represents adjusted operating income based on the ownership interest retained by the
respective noncontrolling parties.

 

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 acquisitions (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 increase or decrease rent expense by the amount
that would have been recognized if lease obligations were not adjusted to fair value at the date of 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
combinations and other items.

(4)

On July 15, 2021, we entered into a joint venture named DomaniRx, LLC in which we are the majority interest holder and
primary beneficiary. As such, we consolidate DomaniRx, LLC as a variable interest entity. Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA
attributable to noncontrolling interest represents adjusted Consolidated EBITDA based on the ownership interest retained by
the respective noncontrolling parties.

 

Note 4. Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to SS&C to Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share Attributable to SS&C

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to SS&C represent net income and earnings per share attributable to SS&C 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 attributable to SS&C 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 attributable to SS&C 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 attributable to SS&C to net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to SS&C, the GAAP measures we believe to be most directly comparable to adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share.
