The ADT Corporation (NYSE: ADT) today reported diluted earnings per share of $0.40 for the fourth quarter of 2012, and diluted earnings per share before special items of $0.43. Naren Gursahaney, ADT’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “With our recent spin-off from Tyco International we entered the new fiscal year as a standalone public company with a clear leadership position in residential and small business security in North America. We are excited about the opportunities ahead of us to build on our leadership position and drive ongoing profitable growth.” Commenting on the company’s results for the fourth quarter, Gursahaney added, “We delivered solid recurring revenue growth fueled by the continued success of Pulse in the residential and small business security markets. Our focus for 2013 is to deliver meaningful shareholder value by leveraging our competitive strengths to accelerate growth and through the efficient deployment of capital.”

Recurring revenue, which made up over 90% of total revenue in the quarter, was up 5.2%, driven by 4.4% growth in average revenue per customer, which rose to $38.87, and 1.1% net growth in customer accounts. Non-recurring revenue declined 21.3% as the Company's mix continues to shift toward more ADT-owned systems, increasing deferred revenue and reducing current period installation revenue. Total revenue of $812 million increased 2.3%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Attrition was up 30 basis points sequentially to 13.8% with the majority of the increase coming from voluntary disconnects, in part due to the higher level of price escalations implemented in the second and third quarters. ADT added 284,000 new customers and closed the quarter with 6.4 million customer accounts, 1.1% higher than last year.

EBITDA before special items was $401 million, 2.8% higher than the fourth quarter of the prior year, and EBITDA margin before special items was 49.4%, a 30 basis point improvement. In the quarter the Company had a 20 basis point unfavorable impact to EBITDA margin primarily from charges related to legal matters of $15 million, or 180 basis points (including a lawsuit under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act), partially offset by a 160 basis point favorable impact from the mix shift to more ADT-owned systems.

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase program, authorizing the Company to purchase $2.0 billion of its common stock. The program expires on November 27, 2015 and may be terminated at any time.

The Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.125 per share, payable December 18, 2012 to shareholders of record on December 10, 2012.

FISCAL YEAR 2013 GUIDANCE

  • Recurring revenue growth of 4.9%-5.2%
  • EBITDA margin before special items of 49.5%-50.5%
  • Free cash flow before special items of $375-$425 million
  • Steady-state free cash flow before special items of $950 million - $1.0 billion

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), EBITDA margin, free cash flow (FCF), steady-state free cash flow (SSFCF) and earnings per share (EPS), in each case “before special items,” are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered replacements for GAAP results.

EBITDA is a useful measure of the company’s success in acquiring, retaining and servicing our customer base and ability to generate and grow recurring revenue while providing a high level of customer service in a cost-effective manner. The difference between Net Income (the most comparable GAAP measure) and EBITDA (the non-GAAP measure) is the exclusion of interest expense, the provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense. Excluding these items eliminates the impact of expenses associated with our capitalization and tax structure as well as the impact of non-cash charges related to capital investments.

In addition, from time to time, the company may present EBITDA before special items, which is EBITDA, adjusted to exclude the impact of the special items highlighted below. This number provides information to investors regarding the impact of certain items management believes are useful to identify, as described below.

There are material limitations to using EBITDA. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Furthermore, EBITDA does not take into account certain significant items, including depreciation and amortization, interest expense and tax expense, which directly affect our net income. These limitations are best addressed by considering the economic effects of the excluded items independently, and by considering EBITDA in conjunction with net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP.

FCF is a useful measure of our cash that is free from significant existing obligations and available for other uses. The difference between Cash Flows from Operating Activities (the most comparable GAAP measure) and FCF (the non-GAAP measure) consists of the impact of capital expenditures, subscriber system assets, dealer generated customer accounts and bulk account purchases. Dealer generated accounts are accounts that are generated through our network of authorized dealers. Bulk account purchases represent accounts that we acquire from third parties outside of our authorized dealer network, such as other security service providers, on a selective basis. These items are subtracted from cash flows from operating activities because they represent long-term investments that are required for normal business activities.

SSFCF is a useful measure of pre-levered cash that is generated by the business after the cost of replacing recurring revenue lost to attrition, but before the cost of new subscribers driving recurring revenue growth. The difference between Cash Flows from Operating Activities (the most comparable GAAP measure) and SSFCF (the non-GAAP measure) consists of the impact of capital expenditures, subscriber system assets, dealer generated customer accounts required to maintain recurring revenue, and cash paid for interest and income taxes. Capital expenditures, subscriber system assets, and dealer generated customer accounts required to maintain recurring revenue are subtracted from cash flows from operating activities because they represent long-term investments that are required to replace recurring revenue lost to attrition. The exclusion of cash paid for interest and income taxes eliminates the impact of cash flows associated with our capitalization and tax structure.

In addition, from time to time the company may present free cash flow and steady-state free cash flow before special items, which is free cash flow and steady-state free cash flow, adjusted to exclude the cash impact of the special items highlighted below. This number provides information to investors regarding the cash impact of certain items management believes are useful to identify, as described below.

The limitation associated with using FCF and SSFCF is that they adjust for cash items that are ultimately within management's and the Board of Directors' discretion to direct and therefore may imply that there is less or more cash that is available for the company's programs than the most comparable GAAP measure. This limitation is best addressed by using FCF and SSFCF in combination with the GAAP cash flow numbers.

FCF and SSFCF as presented herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. These measures should be used in conjunction with other GAAP financial measures. Investors are urged to read the company's financial statements as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the accompanying tables to this press release that show all the elements of the GAAP measures of Cash Flows from Operating Activities, Cash Flows from Investing Activities, Cash Flows from Financing Activities and a reconciliation of the company's total cash and cash equivalents for the period. See the accompanying tables to this press release for a cash flow statement presented in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations presenting the components of FCF and SSFCF.

The company has presented its EPS, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, FCF and SSFCF before special items. Special items include charges and gains related to acquisitions, restructurings, impairments, and other income or charges that may mask the underlying operating results and/or business trends of the company. The company utilizes these measures to assess overall operating performance, as well as to provide insight to management in evaluating overall operating plan execution and underlying market conditions. The company also presents its effective tax rate as adjusted for special items for consistency. One or more of these measures may be used as components in the company's incentive compensation plans. These measures are useful for investors because they may permit more meaningful comparisons of the company's underlying operating results and business trends between periods. The difference between net income and EPS before special items and net income and EPS (the most comparable GAAP measures) consists of the impact of the special items noted above on the applicable GAAP measure. EBITDA and EBITDA margin before special items do not reflect any additional adjustments that are not reflected in net income before special items. The limitation of these measures is that they exclude the impact (which may be material) of items that increase or decrease the company's reported operating income and operating margin and net income and EPS. This limitation is best addressed by using the non-GAAP measures in combination with the most comparable GAAP measures in order to better understand the amounts, character and impact of any increase or decrease on reported results.
