Worldpay Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2018 Results

 

Accelerating Growth Highlights Successful First Year for Newly Combined Company

 

 

CINCINNATI and LONDON, February 26, 2019 - Worldpay, Inc. (NYSE: WP, LSE: WPY) ("Worldpay" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2018. Worldpay, Inc. was formed on January 16, 2018 through Vantiv, Inc.'s acquisition of Worldpay Group plc. Net revenue for the Company increased 85% in the fourth quarter to $1,050 million as compared to $569 million in Vantiv, Inc.'s prior year period. Had the Company's acquisition of Worldpay Group plc closed on January 1, 2017, net revenue would have increased by 9% on a pro forma basis and by 10% on a pro forma constant currency basis, when excluding $6 million in foreign exchange headwinds. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share attributable to Worldpay, Inc. increased to $0.36 as compared to $(0.37) in the prior year period. Adjusted net income per share increased 15% to $1.12 as compared to $0.97 in the prior year period. (See Schedule 1 for net income per diluted share attributable to Worldpay, Inc. and Schedule 2 for adjusted net income per share.)

 

"The high rates of organic growth and the continued acceleration in technology solutions shows the power of our strategy," said Charles Drucker, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our strong business fundamentals position us for continued growth in 2019."

Fourth Quarter Adjusted EBITDA

For the fourth quarter, adjusted EBITDA was $531 million or 50.6% of net revenue, representing 110 basis points of adjusted EBITDA margin expansion as compared to Vantiv, Inc. results on a stand-alone basis in the prior year period. Had the Company's acquisition of Worldpay Group plc closed on January 1, 2017, adjusted EBITDA margins would have expanded by 160 basis points on a pro forma basis over the prior year period, including $16 million in cost synergies realized during the quarter.

 

Full-Year Results

For the full-year 2018, net revenue increased 85% to $3,925 million as compared to $2,123 million in Vantiv Inc.'s prior year. Had the Company's acquisition of Worldpay Group plc closed on January 1, 2017, net revenue would have increased by 10% on a pro forma basis and by 9% on a pro forma constant currency basis, when excluding $36 million in foreign exchange tailwinds. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share attributable to Worldpay, Inc. decreased to $0.04 as compared to $0.80 in the prior year period. The reduction in GAAP earnings is primarily due to transition, acquisition and integration costs and intangible amortization incurred in connection with the acquisition of Worldpay Group plc. Adjusted net income per share increased 20% to $4.05 as compared to $3.37 in the prior year period.

Full-Year Adjusted EBITDA

For the full-year 2018, adjusted EBITDA was $1,895 million or 48.3% of net revenue, representing 40 basis points of margin expansion as compared to Vantiv, Inc. results on a stand-alone basis in the prior year period. Had the acquisition of Worldpay Group plc closed on January 1, 2017, adjusted EBITDA margins would have expanded by 140 basis points on a pro forma basis over the prior year period, including $52 million in cost synergies realized during the year.

 

Debt Repayment

During the three months ended December 31, 2018, Worldpay reached the 4.0x leverage target that it committed to achieving with the announcement of the Worldpay Group plc acquisition. The Company achieved this target more than six months ahead of its initial mid-2019 expectation. Subsequently, in January 2019, Worldpay paid down the remaining $520 million of its Term B-3 loan, further reducing its outstanding debt.

 

Having honored its commitment to focus exclusively on debt repayment until it reached 4.0x leverage, the company returned to its historical capital allocation priorities, which include investing for growth, both organically and through M&A, balanced with ongoing debt repayment and share repurchases.

 

$150 Million Share Repurchase and $500 Million Share Repurchase Authorization

Consistent with its capital allocation priorities, Worldpay repurchased approximately 1.8 million shares for $150 million during the three months ended December 31, 2018 under its October 2016 share repurchase authorization. Following this repurchase, $93 million of its October 2016 share repurchase authorization remained.

 

In February 2019, Worldpay's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $500 million in additional shares of Worldpay Class A common stock, providing the company with a total authorization of approximately $593 million available for share repurchases.

ASC 606

Worldpay adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASC 606"), effective January 1, 2018. Under ASC 606, Network fees and other costs are now netted against Revenue and no longer appear as an expense between Revenue and Net revenue as they were shown in prior periods. As a result, Revenue and Net revenue are now equivalent. This change in presentation reduces Revenue by the amount of Network fees and other costs to an amount equivalent to Net revenue, but has no impact on Net income, Adjusted net income, or Adjusted EBITDA.

The Company uses these non-GAAP and adjusted financial performance measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact or relating to present facts or current conditions included in this release are forward-looking statements including any statements regarding guidance and statements of a general economic or industry specific nature. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, guidance, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "plan," "intend," "believe," "may," "should," "can have," "likely" and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.

 

The forward-looking statements contained in this release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you review and consider information presented herein, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of future performance or results. They depend upon future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond our control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual future performance or results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Certain of these factors and other risks are discussed in the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and include, but are not limited to: (i) our ability to adapt to developments and change in our industry; (ii) competition; (iii) unauthorized disclosure of data or security breaches; (iv) systems failures or interruptions; (v) implementation of our new acquiring platform; (vi) our ability to expand our market share or enter new markets; (vii) the outcome of Brexit; (viii) our ability to successfully integrate the businesses of our predecessor companies; (ix) our ability to identify and complete acquisitions and partnerships; (x) failure to comply with applicable requirements of Visa, MasterCard or other payment networks or card schemes or changes in those requirements; (xi) our ability to pass along fee increases; (xii) termination of sponsorship or clearing services; (xiii) loss of clients or referral partners; (xiv) geopolitical, regulatory, tax and business risks associated with our international operations; (xv) economic and political uncertainty; (xvi) reductions in overall consumer, business and government spending; (xvii) fraud by merchants or others; (xviii) a decline in the use of credit, debit or prepaid cards; (xix) consolidation in the banking and retail industries; (xx) our ability to mitigate risk; (xxi) government regulation, including regulation aimed at protecting consumer information and banking regulation; (xxii) changes in tax laws; (xxiii) changes in foreign currency exchange rates; (xxiv) outcomes of future litigation or investigations; and (xxv) our dual-listings with the NYSE and LSE. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. More information on potential factors that could affect the company's financial results and performance is included from time to time in the "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of the company's periodic reports filed with the SEC, including the company's most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and its subsequent filings with the SEC.

 

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release speaks only as of the date of this release. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

(1)        Based on the Company's adoption of Accounting Standard Update 2014-09, Revenue From Contracts With Customers (Topic 606) ("ASC 606") effective January 1, 2018, Network fees and other costs are now netted against Revenue. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, Revenue is equivalent to Net revenue as a result of the company's adoption of ASC 606. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, Net revenue is equivalent to Revenue less Network fees and other costs.

(2)        Non-operating expense for the year ended December 31, 2018 primarily consists of expenses relating to the Company's financing arrangements entered into in connection with the Worldpay Group plc acquisition, repricing of the Company's debt in June 2018 and the change in fair value of the Mercury tax receivable agreement ("TRA"), partially offset by a gain on the settlement of a deal contingent forward entered into in connection with the Company's acquisition of Worldpay Group plc. Non-operating income for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017 primarily consists of a gain relating to the impact to the TRA liability as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Reform") being enacted on December 22, 2017 and an unrealized gain relating to the change in the fair value of a deal contingent forward entered into in connection with the Worldpay Group plc acquisition, partially offset by the change in fair value of the Mercury TRA.

(3)        Income tax expense for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, includes an adjustment of $363.6 million to deferred taxes for the change in tax rates and the impact to the TRA discussed in (2) above, both resulting from the Tax Reform enacted on December 22, 2017.

(4)        Due to our structure as a C corporation and Worldpay Holding's structure as a pass-through entity for tax purposes, the numerator in the diluted net income per share calculation is adjusted to reflect the Company's income tax expense at an expected effective tax rate assuming the conversion of the Class B units of Worldpay Holding into shares of our Class A common stock. During the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, approximately 10.3 million and 12.7 million weighted-average Class B units of Worldpay Holding were excluded in computing diluted net income per share because including them would have an antidilutive effect.  During the three months and year ended December 31, 2017, approximately 15.3 million and 27.2 million weighted-average Class B units of Worldpay Holding were excluded in computing diluted net income per share because including them would have an antidilutive effect. As the Class B units of Worldpay Holding were not included, the numerator used in the calculation of diluted net income per share was equal to the numerator used in the calculation of basic net income per share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2017. Additionally, due to the net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2017, any remaining potentially dilutive securities were also excluded from the denominator in computing dilutive net income per share.
