NEW YORK--()--Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MMC), a global professional services firm offering advice and solutions in risk, strategy, and human capital, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Dan Glaser, President and CEO, said: "Our quarterly results represent an excellent start to the year, continuing the strong earnings momentum the Company has achieved over the past several years. Marsh delivered underlying revenue growth across all major geographies, led by strong performance in the International division as well as sequential improvement in the U.S./Canada division. Guy Carpenter's underlying revenue growth in the quarter was driven by strong growth in its International and Global Specialty operations. The Consulting segment produced significant growth in profitability and margin expansion, led by Mercer.

"Marsh & McLennan's adjusted operating income grew 16% in the first quarter, reflecting mid-teens growth and exceptional margin expansion in both the Risk & Insurance Services and Consulting segments," concluded Mr. Glaser.

Consolidated Results

Consolidated revenue in the first quarter of 2013 was $3.1 billion, an increase of 2% on both a reported and underlying basis compared with the first quarter of 2012. Underlying revenue measures the change in revenue using consistent currency exchange rates, excluding the impact of certain items, such as acquisitions, dispositions, and transfers among businesses. Operating income rose 15% to $607 million, compared with $527 million in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income, which excludes noteworthy items as presented in the attached supplemental schedules, rose 16% in the first quarter to $615 million.

Net income attributable to the Company was $413 million, or $.74 per share in the first quarter. This compares with $347 million, or $.63 per share, in the prior year. Adjusted earnings per share grew to $.73, an increase of 16% from $.63 last year.

Risk and Insurance Services

Risk and Insurance Services revenue increased 5% to $1.8 billion in the first quarter of 2013. Operating income increased 13% to $468 million, compared with $412 million in the prior year. Adjusted operating income in the quarter increased 14% to $471 million.

Marsh's revenue in the first quarter of 2013 was $1.4 billion, an increase of 5%, or 4% on an underlying basis. International operations had underlying revenue growth of 5%, reflecting growth of 13% in Latin America; 6% in Asia Pacific; and 3% in EMEA. In the U.S./Canada division, underlying revenue grew 2%. Guy Carpenter's first quarter revenue was $375 million, an increase of 5% from the prior year, or 4% on an underlying basis.

Consulting

Consulting segment revenue was $1.4 billion in the first quarter, a decrease of 1% from the first quarter of 2012, or flat on an underlying basis. Operating income was $187 million, compared with $164 million in the prior year, and adjusted operating income was $189 million, an increase of 15%.

Mercer's revenue was $1 billion in the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 3% on both a reported and underlying basis.

Other Items

In the first quarter of 2013, the Company had investment income of $21 million related to the winding up of Trident II, a private equity fund investment which we initiated in 1999. This compared with $20 million in the prior year. At March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents was $1.3 billion. Net debt, which is total debt less cash and cash equivalents, was $1.5 billion at the end of the first quarter. In the first quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased 2.7 million shares of its common stock for $100 million.

As previously indicated, beginning in the first quarter of this year, Mercer has reoriented its operations around four core lines of business: Health, Retirement, Talent, and Investments. Also in the first quarter, a substantial portion of Marsh's U.S. Consumer operations was transferred to Mercer. This business represented revenue of $231 million for the full year 2012.

  • changes in the funded status of our global defined benefit pension plans and the impact of any increased pension funding resulting from those changes;
  • the impact of competition, including with respect to our geographic reach, the sophistication and quality of our services, our pricing relative to competitors, our customers' option to self-insure or utilize internal resources instead of consultants, and our corporate tax rates relative to a number of our competitors;
  • the extent to which we retain existing clients and attract new business, and our ability to incentivize and retain key employees;
  • our exposure to potential criminal sanctions or civil remedies if we fail to comply with foreign and U.S. laws and regulations that are applicable to our international operations, including trade sanctions laws such as the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012, anti-corruption laws such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act 2010, local laws prohibiting corrupt payments to government officials, as well as import and export restrictions;

  • the impact of changes in interest rates and deterioration of counterparty credit quality on our results related to our cash balances and investment portfolios, including corporate and fiduciary funds;
  • the impact on our net income or cash flows and our effective tax rate in a particular period caused by settled tax audits and expired statutes of limitation;
  • the impact on our net income caused by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;
  • the potential impact of rating agency actions on our cost of financing and ability to borrow, as well as on our operating costs and competitive position;
  • our ability to successfully recover should we experience a disaster or other business continuity problem;
  • changes in applicable tax or accounting requirements; and
  • potential income statement effects from the application of FASB's ASC Topic No. 740 (“Income Taxes”) regarding accounting treatment of uncertain tax benefits and valuation allowances, including the effect of any subsequent adjustments to the estimates we use in applying this accounting standard.

Non-GAAP Measures
Three Months Ended March 31
(Millions) (Unaudited)

 
The Company presents below certain additional financial measures that are "non-GAAP measures," within the meaning of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These measures are: adjusted operating income (loss); adjusted operating margin; and adjusted income, net of tax.
 
The Company presents these non-GAAP measures to provide investors with additional information to analyze the Company's performance from period to period. Management also uses these measures to assess performance for incentive compensation purposes and to allocate resources in managing the Company's businesses. However, investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information that the Company reports in accordance with GAAP. The Company's non-GAAP measures reflect subjective determinations by management, and may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP measures presented by other companies.
 
Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and Adjusted Operating Margin
Adjusted operating income (loss) is calculated by excluding the impact of certain noteworthy items from the Company's GAAP operating income or loss. The following tables identify these noteworthy items and reconcile adjusted operating income (loss) to GAAP operating income or (loss), on a consolidated and segment basis, for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012. The following tables also present adjusted operating margin, which is calculated by dividing adjusted operating income by consolidated or segment GAAP revenue.
