Interactive Data Reports Second-Quarter 2010 Results

Acquisition of Interactive Data Now Expected to Close Within the Next Several Weeks

BEDFORD, Mass., Jul 19, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010. Interactive Data's second-quarter 2010 revenue was $194.0 million, a 4.9% increase over $185.0 million in the second quarter of 2009. Income from operations in the second quarter of 2010 was $35.5 million, compared with $50.6 million in the same period one year ago. Net income attributable to Interactive Data for the second quarter of 2010 was $25.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared with net income of $33.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2009.

"Interactive Data's second-quarter 2010 revenue growth of 4.9% primarily reflects improving organic revenue performance as well as the contribution from our recent acquisitions," stated Ray D'Arcy, Interactive Data's president and chief executive officer. "We continue to be pleased with the ongoing strength displayed within our fixed income evaluations and reference data services, particularly in the U.S. In addition, we continued to experience growth in our web-based solutions and fixed income analytics product areas. Our overall progress was partly offset by challenges that persist in certain parts of our business, such as our eSignal services for active traders and our real-time market data services. We maintained solid underlying profitability in the second quarter of 2010, although a number of factors resulted in higher operating costs and make comparisons difficult with income from operations in the second quarter and first six months of 2009."

The following factors impacted Interactive Data's 2010 second-quarter income from operations performance and affect comparability with prior-year periods:

  • $11.9 million in second-quarter 2010 costs related to the Company's previously announced agreement to be acquired by Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus;
  • Higher expenses related to certain incentive bonus compensation programs that are now in place after being substantially reduced in the second quarter of 2009 primarily because certain financial targets were not met last year. In addition, annual merit-based salary increases were implemented in January 2010 after being eliminated in 2009;
  • Higher depreciation and amortization expense, the impact of costs associated with recently acquired businesses, and the phasing of hiring to expand the Company's fixed income evaluated pricing organization during the second half of 2009; and
  • An out-of-period accounting adjustment of $10.9 million that decreased second-quarter 2009 revenue by approximately $2.3 million and increased 2009 second-quarter total costs by approximately $8.6 million.

D'Arcy concluded, "Since announcing our agreement to be acquired by Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus in early May, we have made substantial progress toward completing this transaction and now anticipate that it will close within the next several weeks. We look forward to transitioning our ownership structure and we plan to work closely with Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus in ways that will enable us to continue expanding our business and delivering exceptional value to our customers worldwide."

Segment Reporting, Related Operating Highlights and Revenue by Geography

Institutional Services Segment:

  • Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data reported second-quarter 2010 revenue of $125.0 million, an increase of $1.9 million, or 1.5%, over the prior year's second quarter. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and intercompany eliminations related to the December 2009 acquisition of certain Online Financial Solutions (OFS) assets, second-quarter 2010 organic revenue for this business increased by $2.6 million, or 2.1%, from the same period last year. Growth for this business primarily reflected ongoing strength in its fixed income evaluated pricing offerings and complementary reference data services mainly in the U.S. During the second quarter of 2010, the Pricing and Reference Data business enhanced its evaluated pricing offerings with new coverage and complementary services, broadened the capabilities for its interest rate swap service, and introduced new technology and internal workflows to enhance its award-winning global Corporate Actions Service. In addition, this business announced progress in expanding its customer base for its new Options Volatility ServiceSM and for its complex OTC derivatives and structured products valuations.
  • Interactive Data Real-Time Services generated second-quarter 2010 revenue of $40.5 million, an increase of $7.6 million, or 23.3%, over the same quarter last year (or an increase of $8.6 million, or 26.1% before the effects of foreign exchange). Organic revenue for Interactive Data Real-Time Services, which excludes the effects of foreign exchange, the contribution of the acquired OFS assets and related intercompany eliminations, and the first full quarter contribution from the 7ticks assets that were acquired in mid-January 2010, increased 5.6% from the same period last year. The change in organic revenue is due to the impact of the 2009 out-of-period accounting adjustment, which reduced revenue by $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2009 (see pages 3 and 14 for additional details). Interactive Data's customized, hosted web-based solutions product area experienced strong organic revenue growth in the U.S. and improved performance in Europe. During the second quarter, this business made tangible progress integrating the OFS assets it acquired in late 2009, building out its 7ticks network infrastructure and expanding its customer base for 7ticks services.
  • Interactive Data Fixed Income Analytics reported revenue for the second quarter of 2010 of $8.5 million, an increase of $0.3 million, or 3.5%, from last year's second quarter. During the second quarter, this business continued to enhance its flagship BondEdge(R) offering, including more tightly integrating BondEdge with leading trade order management solutions.

Active Trader Services Segment:

  • eSignal's second-quarter 2010 revenue of $20.0 million decreased by $0.8 million, or 3.8%, from the second quarter of 2009 (or a decline of $0.7 million, or 3.3%, before the effects of foreign exchange). The decline in eSignal revenue reflects a 2.6% decrease in the eSignal direct subscriber base to approximately 55,700 terminals as well as lower advertising revenue. During the second quarter, eSignal upgraded its Market-Q offering with enhanced content, tools and navigation that are designed to empower wealth managers and futures traders to help them make informed investment decisions.

Revenue by Geography:

  • Interactive Data's total North American second-quarter 2010 revenue of $142.0 million, grew by 7.4% over the same period last year due primarily to the contributions from acquisitions, and sustained organic revenue growth in its fixed income evaluated pricing and reference data product area, as well as good performances for its fixed income analytics and web-based solutions product areas. Excluding revenue and related intercompany eliminations associated with the Company's acquisitions, Interactive Data's total North American second-quarter 2010 organic revenue grew 2.4%. The Company's second-quarter 2010 revenue in Europe declined by 2.3% to $44.4 million from the second quarter one year ago. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange, second-quarter 2010 organic revenue in Europe grew by 2.7% primarily due to the above-mentioned out-of-period accounting adjustment, which reduced revenue by $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2009. Interactive Data's Asia-Pacific revenue of $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2010 grew 3.5% from the second quarter of 2009. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange, Asia-Pacific organic revenue declined by 5.1% during the second quarter of 2010 due primarily to softer usage revenue trends in the region.
  • A table comparing revenue by geography, including the impact of foreign exchange as a percentage of total revenue for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, for each of Interactive Data's major geographic regions has been included on page 12 of this press release.

Other Second-Quarter 2010 Financial and Operating Highlights

Effects of Foreign Exchange:

  • Interactive Data's second-quarter 2010 revenue was unfavorably impacted by $1.7 million due to the effects of foreign exchange resulting from a stronger US dollar in comparison with the second quarter of 2009. Second-quarter 2010 revenue before the effects of foreign exchange grew by $10.6 million, or 5.7%, over the same period in 2009. Total costs and expenses in the second quarter of 2010 were reduced by $1.8 million as a result of the effects of foreign exchange. Second-quarter 2010 total costs and expenses before the effects of foreign exchange increased by $25.8 million, or 19.2%, over the second quarter of 2009.
  • A table comparing the average foreign exchange rates during the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010 versus the comparable periods of 2009 in three of the Company's primary overseas currencies (as measured against the U.S. dollar) is provided on page 14 of this press release.

Cash Position:

  • As of June 30, 2010, Interactive Data had no outstanding debt and had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $347.1 million.
  • Consistent with the terms of the Company's agreement to be acquired by Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus, there were no regular quarterly dividends or special dividends to stockholders declared or paid during the second quarter of 2010, nor did the Company repurchase its common stock during the second quarter of 2010.

Second-Quarter 2009 Out-of-Period Accounting Adjustment

  • Interactive Data's results for second quarter of 2009 included a $10.9 million out-of-period accounting adjustment related to the write-down of certain assets and the accrual of certain liabilities associated with the Company's European real-time market data services operation. The out-of-period accounting adjustment decreased second-quarter 2009 revenue by approximately $2.3 million and increased 2009 second-quarter total costs by approximately $8.6 million. A table summarizing the out-of-period accounting adjustment and its allocation to earlier reporting periods has been included on page 14 of this press release.

First-Half 2010 Results

  • For the first six months ended June 30, 2010, Interactive Data reported revenue of $390.9 million, an increase of $19.8 million, or 5.3%, from $371.0 million in the same period last year. Foreign exchange increased first-half 2010 revenue by $3.3 million and acquisitions, net of intercompany eliminations, contributed $12.2 million during that same period. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the net impact of acquisitions, organic revenue grew by 1.2% during the first half of 2010. Total costs and expenses increased $38.8 million, or 14.2%, to $310.9 million in the first half of 2010. Net income attributable to Interactive Data during the first half of 2010 was $54.7 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, versus $65.1 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, in the comparable period of 2009. The effective tax rate for first half of 2010 was 32.3% compared with 34.8% in the same period last year.

Acquisition of Interactive Data by Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus:

  • On May 4, 2010, Interactive Data announced a definitive agreement for the Company to be acquired by investment funds managed by Silver Lake and Warburg Pincus in a transaction with a total value of $3.4 billion. Under the agreement, Interactive Data's stockholders will receive $33.86 in cash for each share of Interactive Data common stock they own. Completion of the transaction, which remains subject to certain closing conditions, is expected to occur within the next several weeks.

Non-GAAP Information

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, we also disclose the following non-GAAP information, which management believes provides the following useful information to investors:

  • Management refers to growth rates at constant foreign currency exchange rates so that business results can be viewed without the impact of changing foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our underlying business. Generally, when the U.S. dollar either strengthens or weakens against other currencies, the growth at constant currency rates will be higher or lower than growth reported at actual exchange rates.
  • Management includes information regarding organic revenue growth, which excludes the contribution of businesses recently acquired, related intercompany eliminations and the effects of foreign currency exchange rates because management believes that facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our organic revenue growth on a constant dollar basis better reflects actual underlying business trends. As part of determining organic growth, management refers to revenue for our Interactive Data Pricing and Reference Data, Interactive Data Real-Time Services, Interactive Data Fixed Income Analytics, and eSignal businesses. Management uses this information for evaluating its business, and for forecasting and planning purposes. 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 core total costs and expenses which excludes total costs and expenses associated with businesses recently acquired, and the effects of foreign exchange because management believes changes in our core total costs and expenses on a constant dollar basis better reflect actual trends in the core businesses.
  • Management includes information regarding non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes revenue and costs and expenses associated with recently acquired businesses, intercompany eliminations and the effects of foreign exchange because management believes changes in our non-GAAP income from operations on a constant dollar basis better reflect actual underlying business trends in the core businesses.

The above measures are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered in isolation from (and are not intended to represent an alternative measure of) revenue, total costs and expenses, income from operations, net income or cash flows provided by operating activities, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the above measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
