TSYS Reports 2012 Earnings Per Share Up 13.1%

TSYS (NYSE: TSS) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year with basic earnings per share (EPS) at $0.33 for the quarter, an increase of 3.7%, and $1.30 for the full year, an increase of 13.1% over 2011. Revenues before reimbursable items for the quarter were $418.6 million, an increase of 2.7%, and $1,618.5 million for the year, an increase of 5.0% over 2011. Total revenues were $479.1 million for the quarter and $1,871.0 million for the full year, increases of 1.5% and 3.4%, respectively, as compared to 2011. Total revenues were impacted by decreases of $4.0 million for the quarter and $15.8 million for the year in reimbursable items.

Operating margin excluding reimbursable items for the year was 22.1%, an increase of 117 basis points over last year. The increase is attributable to a 5.0% increase in revenues before reimbursable items, while expenses before reimbursable items were up only 3.5%.

“We are pleased to report that we exceeded the high end of our net income and EPS guidance for 2012. These results reflect continued strong same client transaction growth of 12.0% in our card issuer processing business. Point-Of-Sale transactions, excluding deconverted clients in the indirect merchant business, were up 9.9% and sales volume in the direct merchant business was up 12.9%. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, sales volume was up 3.2%. Also contributing to our strong results was our consolidated internal revenue growth of 5.1% for the year, combined with acquisitions in the acquiring space, which added 1.8% to our growth in revenues before reimbursable items,” said Philip W. Tomlinson, chairman and chief executive officer of TSYS.

“Our guidance for 2013 is included in the table below and we expect 6% to 8 % growth in revenues before reimbursable items and 10% to 12% EPS growth. This is the second year in a row that we have projected double digit EPS growth. We remain focused on executing our strategy of growing our existing businesses, adding strategic acquisitions and deploying capital to enhance shareholder return. In support of this strategy during 2012, we purchased 3.2 million shares of our stock for $75 million, used $190 million to invest in acquisitions, and returned $94 million in dividends to our shareholders, for a total spend of $359 million,” said Tomlinson.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” – that is, statements related to future, not past, events. Forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “believe,” “should,” “plan,” “will,” “could,” and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding TSYS’ earnings guidance for 2013 total revenues, revenues before reimbursable items, net income attributable to TSYS common shareholders and EPS attributable to TSYS common shareholders, and the assumptions underlying such statements. These statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of TSYS' management, are based on management’s assumptions and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by our forward-looking statements in this press release. Many of these factors are beyond TSYS' ability to control or predict. These factors include, but are not limited to, the effect of current domestic and worldwide economic conditions; the material breach of security of any of TSYS' systems; the impact of potential and completed acquisitions, including the costs associated therewith and their being more difficult to integrate than anticipated; adverse developments with respect to foreign currency exchange rates; expenses are incurred associated with the signing of a significant client; the deconversion of a significant client; changes occur in laws, rules, regulations, credit card association rules or other industry standards affecting TSYS and our clients that may result in costly new compliance burdens on TSYS and our clients and lead to a decrease in the volume and/or number of transactions processed; the costs and effects of litigation, investigations or similar matters or adverse facts and developments relating thereto; adverse developments with respect to the credit card industry in general, including a decline in the use of credit cards as a payment mechanism; and growth rates of TSYS’ existing clients are lower than anticipated or attrition rates of existing clients are higher than anticipated. Additional risks and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in this release can be found in TSYS' filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. We believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable; however, undue reliance should not be placed on any forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP
 
Non-GAAP Measures
 
The schedule below provides a reconciliation of revenues and operating results on a constant currency basis to reported revenues and operating income. This non-GAAP measure presents year-to-date 2012 financial results using the previous year’s foreign currency exchange rates. On a year-to-date constant currency basis, TSYS’ total revenues grew 3.8% as compared to a reported GAAP increase of 3.4%.
 

The schedule below also provides a reconciliation of revenues and operating margin excluding reimbursable items to reported revenues and operating margin. On a year-to-date basis, TSYS’ total revenues excluding reimbursable items grew 5.0% as compared to a reported GAAP increase of 3.4%. On a year-to-date basis, TSYS’ operating margin excluding reimbursable items was 22.1% as compared to a reported GAAP margin of 19.1%.

 
TSYS believes that non-GAAP financial measures are important to enable investors to understand and evaluate its ongoing operating results. Accordingly, TSYS includes non-GAAP financial measures when reporting its financial results to shareholders and investors in order to provide them with an additional tool to evaluate TSYS’ ongoing business operations. TSYS believes that the non-GAAP financial measures are representative of comparative financial performance that reflects the economic substance of TSYS’ current and ongoing business operations.
 
Although non-GAAP financial measures are often used to measure TSYS’ operating results and assess its financial performance, they are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.
 
TSYS believes that its use of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with the same key financial performance indicators that are utilized by management to assess TSYS’ operating results, evaluate the business and make operational decisions on a prospective, going-forward basis. Hence, management provides disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures to give shareholders and potential investors an opportunity to see TSYS as viewed by management, to assess TSYS with some of the same tools that management utilizes internally and to be able to compare such information with prior periods. TSYS believes that the presentation of GAAP financial measures alone would not provide its shareholders and potential investors with the ability to appropriately analyze its ongoing operational results, and therefore expected future results. TSYS therefore believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional information to help them better understand its financial statements just as management utilizes these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand the business, manage budgets and allocate resources.
