Interactive Data Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2011 Results

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - Interactive Data Corporation today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2011. Interactive Data's fourth-quarter 2011 revenue increased 6.8% to a record $222.1 million from $207.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Fourth-quarter 2010 revenue was reduced by $1.3 million due to the purchase accounting for the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates and the reduction in fourth-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, Interactive Data's organic (non-GAAP) revenue grew 6.1% from the fourth quarter in 2010.

Interactive Data's fourth-quarter 2011 income from operations was $33.2 million, compared with a loss from operations of $1.2 million in same period one year ago. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $83.5 million, a 13.6% increase over the same period one year ago.

"2011 was a successful year for Interactive Data, capped by a solid performance in the fourth quarter," stated Mason Slaine, Interactive Data's president and chief executive officer. "During the fourth quarter, we continued to drive steady revenue growth within our evaluated pricing and reference data product areas, and produced strong gains within our ultra low latency trading infrastructure services product area. We are pleased with the growth in adjusted EBITDA and our ability to sustain very strong free cash flow while making key investments in our people, products, infrastructure and technology. Our initiatives to innovate during the past year are resonating with our customers worldwide as we focus on broadening our market coverage, adding new and enhanced features and functionality, and bringing new high-value offerings to the marketplace."

Segment Reporting and Related Operating Highlights

Effective for the fourth quarter of 2011, Interactive Data's two reportable segments have been reorganized as Pricing and Reference Data, and Trading Solutions. The change was made in response to operational and organizational initiatives undertaken during the preceding year and completed in the fourth quarter and reflects the way the Company currently approaches the market and analyzes operating performance. The Pricing and Reference Data segment represents the Company's evaluated pricing, reference data and fixed income analytics product areas. The Trading Solutions segment represents the Company's real-time data feeds, ultra low latency infrastructure services, hosted web solutions and desktop solutions. Historical financial results have been reclassified to reflect this change.

Pricing and Reference Data Segment:

  • Interactive Data's Pricing and Reference Data segment reported fourth-quarter 2011 revenue of $150.7 million, a 6.0% increase over the fourth quarter of 2010. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $1.1 million in fourth-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, fourth-quarter 2011 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this business increased by 5.1% from the same period last year. The fourth-quarter 2011 organic revenue performance primarily reflects expansion in its evaluated pricing and reference data services product areas. In recent months, the Company completed its first sale of its newly launched Vantage offering, expanded its derivatives coverage, broadened its relationship with FactSet Research Systems, and added the BlackRock iShares® Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to the BondEdge ETF Library.

  • Interactive Data's Trading Solutions segment generated fourth-quarter 2011 revenue of $71.4 million, which is 8.7% higher than the same quarter last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $0.3 million in fourth-quarter 2010 revenue associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, fourth-quarter 2011 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this business increased 8.1%. The organic revenue growth for this business primarily reflected strong growth in the ultra low latency trading infrastructure services delivered by Interactive Data 7ticks. Key segment highlights included the addition of new market coverage, ongoing progress to add new features and functionality to its hosted web solutions and workstation offerings, and the initial rollout of a customized version of Market-Q by a major bank.

Other Fourth-Quarter 2011 Financial and Operating Highlights

Management Team

  • Interactive Data continued to strengthen its management team in recent months. The Company has appointed new executives to lead its business operations in Germany and Japan. In addition, Dan Videtto plans to join Interactive Data in April 2012 as Managing Director, Asia Pacific to oversee the continued expansion of the Company's operations across this region. Videtto is an accomplished financial services executive who most recently served as chief operating officer of Deutsche Bank's Global Markets and Investment Banking business in Japan as well as managing director of Thomson Financial, Japan. In addition, Interactive Data has continued to add a number of senior-level sales professionals over the past several quarters.

Effects of Foreign Exchange:

  • The net effect of foreign exchange on fourth-quarter 2011 operating results was immaterial.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • As of December 31, 2011, Interactive Data had cash and cash equivalents of $262.2 million, compared with $123.7 million at the same time last year and $217.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2011. The Company's total debt outstanding as of December 31, 2011, was approximately $2.0 billion.

Full-Year 2011 Results

Please note that Interactive Data's full-year 2010 results detailed below are presented on a non-GAAP basis as they reflect the combination of results from the predecessor period prior to the Company's acquisition (from July 1, 2010 through July 29, 2010) and the successor period following it (from July 30, 2010 through December 31, 2010).

  • For the year ended December 31, 2011, Interactive Data reported record revenue of $867.7 million, an increase of $71.1 million, or 8.9%, from $796.6 million in the same period last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange and the reduction of $3.7 million in revenue for 2010 associated with the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment, organic revenue grew by 6.9% during 2011.

  • Interactive Data's income from operations for 2011 was $101.7 million, compared with a loss from operations of $7.1 million in 2010. The 2010 loss from operations included merger costs of $120.0 million. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) increased by 13.8% to a record $329.3 million in 2011 from $289.4 million in the same period one year ago.

Conference Call Information

Interactive Data Corporation will host a conference call to discuss the Company's fourth-quarter 2011 results on Friday, February 17, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. ET. The dial-in number for the conference call is (785) 424-1057 and the related access code is IDCQ411. For those who cannot listen to this broadcast, a replay of the call will be available from February 17, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. until Friday, February 24, 2012 at 12:00 p.m., and it can be accessed by dialing (402) 530-9029 or (800) 695-2533 (no access code is required).

Non-GAAP Information

In addition to presenting our results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also disclose the following non-GAAP information:

  • Management presents full-year 2010 results as the combination of results from the predecessor period prior to the Company's acquisition (from July 1, 2010 through July 29, 2010) and the successor period following it (from July 30, 2010 through December 31, 2010). This presentation is not in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that a presentation and discussion of Combined 2010 is meaningful as it enables a comparison to the comparable period in 2011.

  • Management includes information regarding organic revenue. Organic revenue excludes the effects of foreign currency exchange rates, adjustments related to the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue, and, if applicable, the contribution of businesses recently acquired (and related intercompany eliminations as appropriate). Management believes reporting organic revenue facilitates period-to-period comparisons, and provides a better understanding of underlying business trends and our future revenue growth prospects.

  • Management includes organic revenue for our Pricing and Reference Data, and Trading Solutions segments because management believes this additional level of detail provides further insight into underlying performance trends.

  • Management includes information regarding earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). We also include information regarding adjusted EBITDA, which we define as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges and benefits, adjustments related to the amortization of acquisition-related deferred revenue, and other non-cash, non-operational or non-recurring items. In addition, management also includes information regarding pro forma adjusted EBITDA. We define this metric as earnings, excluding all of the above factors as well as other adjustments permitted under the Company's senior secured credit facilities. Management considers these measures to be important indicators of the Company's operational profitability and cash generation strength and a good measure of the Company's historical operating trend because it eliminates items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course of business. In addition, the Company's pro forma adjusted EBITDA measure is based on the definition of EBITDA set forth in the agreements governing the Company's senior secured credit facilities.

  • Management includes information regarding free cash flow, which we define as adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures. Management considers free cash flow as another important measure of the Company's cash generation strength that supports the Company's ability to repay its debt obligations and invest in future growth through new business development activities or acquisitions.

  • Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company's core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. Such measures are also used by management in their financial and operating decision-making, and for forecasting and planning purposes. In addition, management also considers pro forma adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator which can be used for the purpose of analyzing covenant compliance under the Company's senior secured credit facilities.

  • The non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's results of operations included in this press release should not be considered in isolation from comparable measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for the Company's results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the accompanying tables. The non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Interactive Data's adjusted EBITDA excludes items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, do not require a cash outlay or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course. In addition to excluding the aforementioned items, Interactive Data's pro forma adjusted EBITDA also reflects other adjustments permitted under the Company's senior secured credit facilities. The Company's pro forma adjusted EBITDA measure is based on the definition of EBITDA set forth in the agreements governing the Company's senior secured credit facilities. Please note that the sum of certain amounts may not equal the total due to rounding.
