Completion of First Data Corporation Acquisition

On July 29, 2019, Fiserv, Inc. ("Fiserv") completed the acquisition of First Data Corporation ("First Data") in an all-stock transaction. The company filed a Form 8-K on October 3, 2019 with detailed financial information to provide historical results on a combined company basis with First Data.

Third Quarter 2019 GAAP Results

On a GAAP basis, the financial results of First Data are included in the consolidated results of Fiserv from the date of acquisition. GAAP revenue for the company increased 122% to $3.13 billion in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the prior year period, with $1.61 billion from the First Data segment, 10% growth in the Payments segment and 4% growth in the Financial segment. For the first nine months of 2019, GAAP revenue increased 44% to $6.14 billion compared to the prior year period, with $1.61 billion from the First Data segment, 9% growth in the Payments segment and 1% growth in the Financial segment.

GAAP earnings per share was $0.33 in the third quarter and $1.39 in the first nine months of 2019, decreasing 40% and 36%, respectively, compared to the prior year periods. GAAP earnings per share in the third quarter and the first nine months of 2019 included transaction costs associated with the First Data acquisition and acquired intangible asset amortization from the application of purchase accounting. GAAP earnings per share in the first nine months of 2018 included a gain on the sale of a 55% interest of the company's Lending Solutions business (the "Lending Transaction").

GAAP operating margin was 12.0% in the third quarter and 18.4% in the first nine months of 2019 compared to 25.2% in the third quarter and 31.0% in the first nine months of 2018. GAAP operating margin in the third quarter and the first nine months of 2019 included the operating margin impacts from transaction costs and acquired intangible asset amortization associated with the acquisition of First Data. GAAP operating margin in the first nine months of 2018 included a $227 million gain resulting from the Lending Transaction.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $1.6 billion in the first nine months of 2019 compared to $981 million in the first nine months of 2018.

"We delivered strong financial and sales results in the third quarter while focusing on providing differentiated value for clients across the new Fiserv," said Jeffery Yabuki, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv. "Our primary market focus is to enhance the manner in which consumers and business engage in banking, commerce and financial services to produce meaningful value for all of our stakeholders."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Due to the financial impact of the First Data acquisition, the company's non-GAAP financial performance measures have been recalculated in this news release on a combined company basis for both the third quarter and first nine months of 2019 and 2018. The combined financial information has been prepared by making certain adjustments to the sum of historical First Data financial information determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and historical Fiserv financial information determined in accordance with GAAP. The historical combined financial information includes various estimates and is not necessarily indicative of the operating results of the combined companies had the transaction been completed at the assumed dates or of the combined companies in the future. The historical combined financial information does not reflect any cost savings or other synergies anticipated as a result of the acquisition. In addition, the historical combined financial information does not reflect the impact of any purchase accounting adjustments that may arise from the acquisition as those impacts would be excluded in the preparation of the combined financial information. The combined financial information is not pro forma information prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the preparation of information in accordance with Article 11 would result in a significantly different presentation.

The company supplements its and First Data's historical reporting of information determined in accordance with GAAP, such as revenue, operating income, operating margin, net income, earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities, with "combined revenue," "adjusted revenue," "internal revenue," "internal revenue growth," "combined operating income," "adjusted operating income," "adjusted operating margin," "combined net income attributable to Fiserv," "adjusted net income," "combined earnings per share," "adjusted earnings per share," "combined net cash provided by operating activities," and "free cash flow." Management believes that providing combined historical financial information, making adjustments for certain non-cash or other items and excluding certain pass-through revenue and expenses with respect to such combined information should enhance shareholders' ability to evaluate the combined company's performance, including providing a reasonable basis of comparison with its results for post-acquisition periods and providing additional insights into the factors and trends affecting the combined company's business. Therefore, the company excludes these items from its and First Data's historical combined revenue, combined operating income, combined net income attributable to Fiserv, combined earnings per share and combined net cash provided by operating activities to calculate these non-GAAP measures. The corresponding reconciliations of these adjusted financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are included in this news release, except for forward-looking measures where a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the non-cash and other items described below that are excluded from the non-GAAP outlook measures. See page 18 for additional information regarding the company's forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures.

Examples of non-cash or other items may include, but are not limited to, non-cash deferred revenue adjustments arising from acquisitions; non-cash intangible asset amortization expense associated with acquisitions; non-cash impairment charges; severance and restructuring costs; net charges associated with debt financing activities including foreign currency transaction gains, early debt extinguishment and bridge financing costs; merger and integration costs; gains or losses from the sale of businesses; and certain discrete tax benefits and expenses. The company excludes these items to more clearly focus on the factors management believes are pertinent to the company's operations, and management uses this information to make operating decisions, including the allocation of resources to the company's various businesses.

The company adjusts its non-GAAP results to exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization supplements the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the comparability of operating performance. Although the company excludes amortization from acquisition-related intangible assets from its non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation.

Management believes internal revenue growth is useful because it presents combined adjusted revenue growth including deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments and excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, acquisitions, dispositions and the company's Output Solutions postage reimbursements. Management believes free cash flow is useful to measure the funds generated in a given period that are available for debt service requirements and strategic capital decisions. Management believes this supplemental information enhances shareholders' ability to evaluate and understand the company's core business performance.

These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, revenue, operating income, operating margin, net income, earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities or any other amount determined in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

You should consider these factors carefully in evaluating forward-looking statements and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. The company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this news release.

Earnings per share is calculated using actual, unrounded amounts.

1

 

Represents the financial results of First Data prior to the date of acquisition. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, this includes the results of First Data from July 1, 2019 through July 28, 2019 and from January 1, 2019 through July 28, 2019, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, this includes the results of First Data from July 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018 and from January 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018, respectively.

     

2

 

Represents acquisition and related integration costs incurred as a result of the company's various acquisitions. Merger and integration costs include $200 million and $280 million in the third quarter and first nine months of 2019, respectively, related to the acquisition of First Data and primarily consist of legal and other professional service fees and incremental share-based compensation associated with the fair value of stock awards assumed by Fiserv in connection with the First Data acquisition.

     

3

 

Represents severance and other costs associated with the achievement of ongoing expense management initiatives, including real estate and data center consolidation activities.

     

4

 

Represents amortization of intangible assets acquired through various acquisitions, including customer relationships, software/technology, and tradenames. This adjustment does not exclude the amortization of other intangible assets such as contract assets (sales commissions and deferred conversion costs), capitalized and purchased software, and financing costs and debt discounts. See additional information on page 17 for an analysis of the company's amortization expense.

     

5

 

Represents losses on early debt extinguishments and other costs associated with the refinancing of certain indebtedness of First Data. Debt financing activities in the first nine months of 2019 include $220 million of early debt extinguishment costs and $98 million of bridge term loan facility expenses, partially offset by $50 million of net currency transaction gains related to foreign currency denominated debt.

     

6

 

Represents the earnings attributable to divested businesses and the gain on the associated divestiture transactions. The divested businesses include First Data’s card processing business in Central and Southeastern Europe, First Data’s remittance processing business, and a 55% interest in Fiserv's Lending Solutions business in September 2018, August 2018 and March 2018, respectively.

     

7

 

Represents the company’s share of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets at its unconsolidated affiliates, as well as the minority interest share of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets at its subsidiaries in which it holds a controlling financial interest. This adjustment also includes a $14 million net gain on the merger of a joint venture in the third quarter and first nine months of 2019.

     

8

 

The tax impact of adjustments is calculated using a tax rate of 23%, which is expected to approximate the combined company's annual effective tax rate, exclusive of the actual tax impacts associated with the net gain on sale of businesses.

     

9

 

Represents certain discrete tax items, such as tax effects associated with U.S. federal tax reform and tax impacts from valuation allowance releases, tax reserves and non-deductible transaction costs associated with the acquisition of First Data.

     

10

 

GAAP earnings per share is computed by dividing GAAP net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding - diluted during the period. Combined earnings per share is computed by dividing combined net income attributable to Fiserv by the combined weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted during the period. The combined weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted is computed based on the historical Fiserv weighted average shares outstanding - diluted determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to include the Fiserv shares issued as merger consideration and shares subject to First Data equity awards assumed by Fiserv in connection with the First Data acquisition for all periods presented.

Operating margin percentages are calculated using actual, unrounded amounts.

1

 

Represents the financial results of First Data prior to the date of acquisition. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, this includes the results of First Data from July 1, 2019 through July 28, 2019 and from January 1, 2019 through July 28, 2019, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, this includes the results of First Data from July 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018 and from January 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018, respectively.

     

2

 

Represents the elimination of intercompany revenue and expense between First Data and the company.

     

3

 

Adjustment reflects the conformity of historical amounts to be consistent with the combined company's Output Solutions postage reimbursements.

     

4

 

Represents an adjustment primarily related to the company's joint venture with Bank of America. The company and Bank of America jointly announced the dissolution of the Banc of America Merchant Services joint venture ("BAMS"), to be effective June 2020. The company owns 51% of BAMS and BAMS' financial results are 100% consolidated into the company's financial statements for GAAP reporting purposes. Upon dissolution of the joint venture, the company is entitled to receive a 51% share of the joint venture's value via an agreed upon contractual process. In addition, Bank of America has the right to require the company to continue providing merchant processing and related services to the joint venture clients allocated to Bank of America in the dissolution of the joint venture through June 2023 at current pricing. The company anticipates an ongoing relationship with Bank of America to provide processing and other support services to other Bank of America merchant clients following the joint venture's dissolution. The non-GAAP adjustment reduces adjusted revenue and adjusted operating income by the joint venture revenue and expense that is not expected to be retained by the company upon dissolution and is partially offset by an increase to processing and services revenue.

     

5

 

Represents the results of First Data less amounts included in Corporate and Other consisting of intercompany eliminations, unallocated corporate expenses and other activities that are not considered when management evaluates First Data segment performance.

The company adjusts its non-GAAP results to exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets as such amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions (see corresponding adjustment on page 8). The adjustment for acquired First Data software/technology excludes only the incremental amortization related to the fair value purchase accounting allocation. Management believes that the adjustment of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization supplements the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the comparability of operating performance. Although the company excludes amortization from acquisition-related intangible assets from its non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangible assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangible assets.

Fiserv, Inc.
Full Year Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Internal Revenue Growth - The company's internal revenue growth outlook for 2019 excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, acquisitions, dispositions and the impact of the company's Output Solutions postage reimbursements and merchant services adjustments, and includes deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments. Additionally, the internal revenue growth outlook is calculated based on the combined results of Fiserv and First Data. On a GAAP basis, the financial results of First Data are included in the consolidated results of Fiserv from the date of acquisition. Therefore, the company expects GAAP revenue growth to be significantly higher than internal revenue growth.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share - The company's adjusted earnings per share outlook for 2019 excludes certain non-cash or other items which should enhance shareholders' ability to evaluate the company's performance, as such measures provide additional insights into the factors and trends affecting its business. Non-cash or other items may be significant and include, but are not limited to, non-cash deferred revenue adjustments arising from acquisitions; non-cash intangible asset amortization expense associated with acquisitions; non-cash impairment charges; severance and restructuring costs; net charges associated with debt financing activities including foreign currency transaction gains, early debt extinguishment and bridge financing costs; merger and integration costs; gains or losses from the sale of businesses; and certain discrete tax benefits and expenses. The company estimates that the amortization expense with respect to acquired intangible assets as of September 30, 2019 will be approximately $1.0 billion in 2019. Other adjustments to earnings per share that have been incurred to date are presented on page 8. Estimates of these other adjustments on a forward-looking basis are not available due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of these items.

The company's adjusted earnings per share growth outlook for 2019 reflects 2018 performance recalculated to include the historical results of First Data on an adjusted combined company basis. The information below is presented with a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

GAAP earnings per share is computed by dividing GAAP net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding - diluted during the period. Combined earnings per share is computed by dividing combined net income attributable to Fiserv by the combined weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted during the period. The combined weighted average common shares outstanding - diluted is computed based on the historical Fiserv weighted average shares outstanding - diluted determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to include the Fiserv shares issued as merger consideration and shares subject to First Data equity awards assumed by Fiserv in connection with the First Data acquisition for the period.
