Revenue

Revenue increased by $26.3 million, or 11.0%, to $264.6 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from $238.3 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. On a constant currency basis, our revenue growth was 7.1%, or $17.1 million, for the three months ended June 30th 2014 as compared to the three months ended June 30th 2013.

Organic revenue growth accounted for $10.3 million, or 4.3% of the 11.0% increase. This was driven by new business wins across our Solutions and Information segments and revenue linked to customer assets under management in the loan market during the second quarter of 2014.

Acquisitions contributed $6.8 million to revenue growth, or 2.8% of the 11.0% increase in revenue, associated with the acquisitions in our Solutions segment of Markit Corporate Actions and thinkFolio, which were acquired in July 2013 and January 2014, respectively.

We experienced a favourable movement in exchange rates period over period, which increased our revenue growth by $9.2 million, or 3.9% of the 11.0% increase in revenue.

Recurring fixed revenue as a percentage of total revenue increased from 49.9% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, to 50.8% for the three months ended June 30th 2014. Recurring fixed revenue increased from $118.8 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013 to $134.5 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, as a result of new business wins in our Information and Solutions segments, and as a result of a number of existing customers moving from variable revenue contracts to fixed revenue contracts in the Information Valuation and Trading Services subdivision. Recurring variable revenue as a percentage of total revenue decreased from 46.3% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, to 43.9% for the three months ended June 30th 2014. Recurring variable revenue increased from $110.4 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013 to $116.0 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, largely due to increased customer assets under management within the strong loans market during the second quarter of 2014, and the acquisition of Markit Corporate Actions in our Solutions Managed Services subdivision, partially offset by the previously mentioned change in customer contracts in the Information Valuation and Trading Services subdivision. Non-recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue increased from 3.8% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, to 5.3% for the three months ended June 30th 2014, principally due to new business wins in our Solutions segment.

Operating expenses

Operating expenses increased by $17.7 million, or 13.9%, to $144.6 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from $126.9 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. As a percentage of revenue, operating expenses increased from 53.3% for the three months ended June 30th 2013 to 54.6% for the three months ended June 30th 2014.

Personnel costs contributed 61.2% and 61.8% of total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30th 2013 and 2014, respectively. Personnel costs increased by $11.7 million, or 15.1%, to $89.3 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014. This increase was driven by several factors, including the addition of employees due to acquisitions, continued investment in products to facilitate future growth, increases in employee cash compensation levels, as well as the impact of adverse movements in foreign exchange rates. In 2013 we revised our discretionary compensation structure, which resulted in an increased cash award and lower equity award, both in terms of annual pay and discretionary cash compensation.

Exceptional items

Exceptional items for the three months ended June 30th 2014 were a net expense of $31.3 million, and principally consisted of costs associated with the initial public offering, including the recognition of a liability for social security costs on future option exercises, initial public offering preparation and execution costs and accelerated share based compensation charges. The completion of the initial public offering during the second quarter of 2014 required the recognition of the liability for social security costs on future option exercises of $20.1 million. The initial public offering preparation and execution costs of $8.4 million consisted of legal and other professional fees associated with the initial public offering. Accelerated share based compensation charges of $1.0 million represents the acceleration of the accounting charge for options which vested upon the completion of the initial public offering. In addition, we incurred legal advisory fees of $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, related to ongoing antitrust investigations by the US Department of Justice and the European Commission and the associated consolidated class action lawsuit relating to credit derivatives and related markets.

Exceptional items for the three months ended June 30th 2013 included $1.1 million of legal advisory fees related to the ongoing antitrust investigation by the US Department of Justice and the European Commission and the associated consolidated class action lawsuit relating to credit derivatives and related markets.

Income tax expense

Income tax expense was $9.6 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to $14.8 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013, a decrease of $5.2 million, or 35.1%, reflecting the impact of tax deductible exceptional costs. Our effective tax rate was 24.6% for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to 21.7% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, principally reflecting the impact of non-deductible exceptional items, the proportion of profits earned in higher tax jurisdictions and adjustments relating to prior periods.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin

Adjusted EBITDA of $120.0 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014 increased by $8.6 million, or 7.7%, from $111.4 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. This growth was within our Solutions and Information segments. See “Reconciliation to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to profit for the period from continuing operations.

Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 45.4% for the three months ended June 30th 2014 compared to the Adjusted EBITDA margin of 46.7% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, largely as a result of investments in new product offerings in the Solutions segment.

Adjusted Earnings

Adjusted Earnings for the three months ended June 30th 2014, decreased $2.5 million, or 3.5%, to $68.3 million from $70.8 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. This reflects the financial performance discussed above, including in particular the impact of a tax adjustment related to prior periods in the three months ended June 30th 2013, which increased Adjusted Earnings in the second quarter of 2013 by approximately $5.0 million. See “Reconciliation to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of Adjusted Earnings to profit for the period from continuing operations.

Information

Revenue in our Information segment increased by $6.6 million, or 5.7%, to $122.2 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to $115.6 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. The revenue increase was largely driven by the positive impact of foreign exchange movements across the segment and by new business wins within the Pricing and Reference Data subdivision.

Adjusted EBITDA in our Information segment increased by $3.6 million, or 6.5%, to $58.6 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to $55.0 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. This increase was largely attributable to the revenue growth described above. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 48.0% for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to 47.6% for the three months ended June 30th 2013.

Processing

Revenue in our Processing segment increased by $1.2 million, or 1.7%, to $72.1 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from $70.9 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. This reflects a small decline in revenue in our derivatives processing product offset by favourable foreign exchange movements.

Adjusted EBITDA in our Processing segment remained broadly consistent at $38.9 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, compared to $39.0 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. Our Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 54.0% for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from 55.0% for the three months ended June 30th 2013.

Solutions

Revenue in our Solutions segment increased by $18.5 million, or 35.7%, to $70.3 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from $51.8 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. Revenue growth was driven by new business wins across both the Enterprise Software and Managed Services subdivisions and revenue linked to assets under management in the loan market, in addition to the impact of the acquisitions of Markit Corporate Actions and thinkFolio.

Adjusted EBITDA in our Solutions segment increased by $5.1 million, or 29.3%, to $22.5 million for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from $17.4 million for the three months ended June 30th 2013. This increase was largely driven by the revenue growth described above. Our Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 32.0% for the three months ended June 30th 2014, from 33.6% for the three months ended June 30th 2013, primarily as a result of investment in new product offerings in the Managed Services subdivisions.

Note on IFRS reporting standards

We prepare and report our consolidated financial statements and financial information in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (the “IASB”). None of our financial statements were prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the United States. We maintain our books and records in US dollars. We have made rounding adjustments to some of the figures included in this press release. Accordingly, numerical figures shown as totals in some tables may not be an arithmetic aggregation of the figures that precede them. Unless otherwise indicated, all references to currency amounts in this press release are in US dollars.

Use of non-IFRS financial measures

Non-IFRS results are presented only as a supplement to our financial statements based on IFRS. Non-IFRS financial information is provided to enhance understanding of our financial performance, but none of these non-IFRS financial measures are recognised terms under IFRS and non-IFRS measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute analysis for, our results of operations as determined in accordance with IFRS. Definitions and reconciliations of non-IFRS measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measures are provided within the schedules attached to this release.

We use non-IFRS measures in our operational and financial decision making, as we believe that it is useful to exclude certain items in order to focus on what we regard to be a more reliable indicator of the underlying operating performance of the business. As a result, internal management reports feature non-IFRS measures which are also used to prepare strategic plans and annual budgets and review management compensation. We also believe that investors may find non-IFRS financial measures useful for the same reasons, although investors are cautioned that non-IFRS financial measures are not a substitute for IFRS disclosures.

Non-IFRS measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies comparable to us, many of which present non-IFRS measures when reporting their results. Non-IFRS measures have limitations as an analytical tool. They are not presentations made in accordance with IFRS, are not measures of financial condition or liquidity and should not be considered as an alternative to profit or loss for the period determined in accordance with IFRS or operating cash flows determined in accordance with IFRS. Non-IFRS measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. As a result, you should not consider such performance measures in isolation from, or as a substitute analysis for, our results of operations as determined in accordance with IFRS.

Forward-looking statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that Markit expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Markit’s estimates and forward-looking statements are mainly based on its current expectations and estimates of future events and trends, which affect or may affect its businesses and operations. Although Markit believes that these estimates and forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, they are subject to several risks and uncertainties and are made in light of information currently available to Markit. When used in this press release, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “intend,” “expect,” “estimate,” “plan,” “will” or other similar words are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

Adjusted Earnings

Adjusted Earnings is defined as profit for the period from continuing operations before amortisation of acquired intangibles, acquisition related items, exceptional items, share-based compensation, net other gains or losses and unwind of discount, less the tax effect of these adjustments and excluding Adjusted Earnings attributable to non-controlling interests.
