Pitney Bowes Announces Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

STAMFORD, Conn.--()--Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides products and solutions that power commerce, today reported financial results for the second quarter 2015.

Quarterly Financial Results:

  • Revenue of $881 million, a decline of 4 percent on a constant currency basis and a decline of 8 percent as reported. Revenue declined 3 percent versus the prior year when adjusted for the impacts of currency and the divestiture of certain European revenue streams in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EPS of $0.45; GAAP EPS of $0.75. Adjusted EPS includes a $0.02 negative impact for currency translation during the quarter.
  • Free cash flow of $84 million; GAAP cash from operations of $96 million.
  • Established new segment reporting.
  • Increasing annual GAAP EPS guidance as a result of the net gain on the sale of Imagitas; partially offset by costs associated with the Borderfree acquisition; restructuring and asset impairment charges; and other expenses.
  • Updating revenue guidance to reflect results year-to-date.
  • Updating annual adjusted EPS and free cash flow guidance solely to reflect the impacts of the Borderfree acquisition and Imagitas sale.

Transactions Completed During the Quarter

  • Acquisition of Borderfree for approximately $400 million, inclusive of transaction fees and net of cash on Borderfree’s balance sheet.
  • Sale of the Marketing Services business, Imagitas, which will generate net proceeds of approximately $270 million, net of transaction fees, cash on their balance sheet and taxes when paid.
  • Sale of former World Headquarters building for $39 million.

“We are at an inflection point in our transformation where the cumulative effects of the steps we have taken over the past 30 months position us for long-term growth and profitability,” said Marc B. Lautenbach, President and CEO of Pitney Bowes. “While we continued to make progress on our way to transform Pitney Bowes, our second quarter financial results were mixed. Our Presort Services business performed well and our North American Small and Medium Business continued to improve. However, growth in our Ecommerce business was negatively affected by the strong dollar and our performance in Europe was below our expectations.

“That said, the actions we have taken over the last two years have strengthened our hand and improved our competitive position. As a result, we are poised for sustained improvement in the second half and beyond. For this reason, we will begin executing our authorized share repurchase program with the intent to complete the program by the end of this year.”

SECOND QUARTER 2015 – REVENUE RESULTS

Revenue totaled $881 million, a decline of 4 percent on a constant currency basis and 8 percent on a reported basis versus the prior year. For comparative purposes, revenue would have declined 3 percent compared to the prior year when the current and prior periods are adjusted for the impacts of currency and the reduction in revenue resulting from the exit of direct operations in some European countries that we completed in the third quarter of 2014.

Digital Commerce Solutions revenue, which excludes marketing services from both periods, grew 4 percent on a constant currency basis and was flat to prior year on a reported basis. Revenue on a constant currency basis benefited from growth in ecommerce and shipping solutions, which was offset by a decline in software solutions.

Enterprise Business Solutions revenue declined 2 percent on a constant currency basis and 5 percent on a reported basis. Revenue benefited from continued growth in Presort Services while revenue in Production Mail declined.

Small and Medium Business (SMB) Solutions revenue declined 6 percent on a constant currency basis and 11 percent on a reported basis. For comparative purposes, revenue would have declined 4 percent when adjusted for the impacts of currency and the divested revenues in Europe from the prior year.

Other revenue, which was primarily attributable to marketing services, declined 26 percent when compared to the prior year. The decline is a result of only two months of reported revenue this quarter due to the sale of this business completed in May versus a full quarter of revenue in the prior year.

SECOND QUARTER 2015 - EPS RESULTS

On a Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) basis, earnings per diluted share were $0.75. Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.45 and exclude:

  • $0.44 per share of Other income due to the net gain from the sale of Imagitas;
  • $0.05 per share of Other expense for the resolution in principle of an outstanding legal matter and transaction costs and fees related to the Borderfree and Imagitas transactions;
  • $0.04 per share of compensation expense related to the vesting of options associated with the Borderfree acquisition; and
  • $0.04 per share for Restructuring and asset impairment charges.

The Company achieved its earnings per share despite the inclusion of $0.03 in reductions related to currency translation, loss of one month of Imagitas earnings and one month of amortization of intangibles related to Borderfree. The Company continued to reduce SG&A versus the prior year despite on-going investments in the business.

The Company’s earnings per share results for the quarter are summarized in the table below:

SECOND QUARTER 2015 - FREE CASH FLOW RESULTS

Free cash flow during the quarter was $84 million and $96 million on a GAAP basis. In comparison to the prior year, second quarter free cash flow was lower primarily due to the timing of working capital requirements; lower Reserve Account deposits and less of a decline in finance receivables as a result of a stabilizing portfolio. During the quarter, the Company used cash to pay $47 million in dividends to its shareholders, made $9 million in restructuring payments and received $39 million of cash related to the sale of our former World Headquarters building.

North America Mailing

The decline in revenue for the quarter was the lowest rate of decline in five quarters, reflecting a continuation of the stabilization in results. Equipment sales declined at a low-single digit rate as the disruption from the change in go-to-market subsides and the sales organization becomes more productive. Recurring revenue stream trends were in-line with prior quarters. EBIT margin improved versus the prior year due to the mix of business, organizational streamlining and on-going cost reduction initiatives.

International Mailing

During the quarter, currency adversely affected the decline in revenue by 13 percentage points. For comparative purposes, revenue would have declined 8 percent when adjusted for the impacts of currency and the reduction in revenue resulting from the exit of direct operations in some European countries completed in the third quarter of 2014.

Results continued to be impacted by the implementation of the go-to-market initiative. All major markets, except France, have completed the go-to-market resource shift and are focused on improving productivity. France has completed its consultation phase and is expected to complete its go-to-market transition in the third quarter. Revenue comparison was also adversely impacted by the timing of postal rate changes in a number of countries.

EBIT margin declined versus the prior year primarily due to lower mail finishing equipment sales, the impact of currency on some supply chain costs and the timing of postal rate changes.

Production Mail

Revenue declined during the quarter due to lower support services revenue and fewer equipment sales in Europe and Asia. U.S. equipment sales grew as a result of an increase in the number of inserting equipment installations. EBIT margin improved versus the prior year due to a favorable geographic mix and higher-margin equipment sales, as well as on-going cost reduction initiatives.

Presort Services

Revenue benefited from higher volume of First Class mail processed versus the prior year. EBIT margin improved versus the prior year due to the revenue growth and on-going operational productivity.

Revenue was impacted by lower licensing and services sales in Europe and Asia Pacific, which offset growth in licensing revenue in the Americas. However, as a result of go-to-market initiatives and new product introductions, the business is signing on a larger number of quality, mid-sized deals, which will reduce dependency on one-time large deals and drive new client acquisition. EBIT margin improved as a result of greater channel efficiency and consistency, as well as focused cost reduction initiatives to streamline the operations.

Global Ecommerce

Revenue includes the Borderfree acquisition late in the quarter and expansion of the eBay UK outbound cross-border service. However, outbound package shipments from the U.S. continued to be pressured by the strong U.S. dollar. Shipping solutions revenue strengthened as a result of additional new clients. The shipping business is also benefiting directly from improvements in the SMB channel that markets its solutions to mid-sized companies.

EBIT margin was impacted by on-going operational costs and integration investments related to the Borderfree acquisition as well as continued investment in the Company’s cross-border platforms.

2015 GUIDANCE

This guidance discusses future results, which are inherently subject to unforeseen risks and developments. As such, discussions about the business outlook should be read in the context of an uncertain future, as well as the risk factors identified in the safe harbor language at the end of this release and as more fully outlined in the Company's 2014 Form 10-K Annual Report and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Company expects trends in the business to improve in the second half of the year versus the first half of the year as a result of recent actions taken to position the portfolio for growth, including go-to-market improvements, new product launches, client wins and partnerships.

Based on year-to-date results and the Company’s expectation of constant currency revenue growth of 1 percent to 5 percent in the second half of the year, the Company is adjusting its annual revenue guidance. The Company now expects revenue to be in the range of a 1 percent decline to 1 percent growth when compared to 2014 on a constant currency basis.

The Company is increasing its annual GAAP EPS guidance to be in the range of $2.06 to $2.21. This guidance includes the following:

  • $0.44 per share of Other income related to the net gain from the sale of Imagitas;
  • $0.05 per share of Other expense for the resolution in principle of an outstanding legal matter and transaction costs and fees related to the Borderfree and Imagitas transactions;
  • $0.04 per share of Restructuring and asset impairment charges;
  • $0.04 per share of compensation expense related to the vesting of options associated with the Borderfree acquisition;
  • $0.06 per share of reduced earnings as a result of the sale of Imagitas; and
  • $0.04 per share of reduced earnings related to Borderfree, which includes principally amortization of intangibles and integration investments net of early savings from expected synergies.

The Company is updating its adjusted EPS and free cash flow guidance solely to reflect the impacts of the Borderfree acquisition and Imagitas sale.

  • Adjusted EPS is now expected to be in the range of $1.75 to $1.90.
  • Free cash flow is now expected to be in the range of $450 million to $525 million.

This guidance excludes any unusual items that may occur or additional portfolio or restructuring actions, not specifically identified, as the Company implements plans to further streamline its operations and reduce costs.

Conference Call and Webcast

Management of Pitney Bowes will discuss the Company’s results in a broadcast over the Internet today at 8:00 a.m. ET. Instructions for listening to the earnings results via the Web are available on the Investor Relations page of the Company’s web site at www.pb.com.

About Pitney Bowes

Pitney Bowes (NYSE: PBI) is a global technology company offering innovative products and solutions that enable commerce in the areas of customer information management, location intelligence, customer engagement, shipping and mailing, and global ecommerce. More than 1.5 million clients in approximately 100 countries around the world rely on products, solutions and services from Pitney Bowes.

The Company's financial results are reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company uses measures such as adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), adjusted earnings per share, adjusted income from continuing operations and free cash flow to exclude the impact of special items like restructuring charges, tax adjustments, and goodwill and asset write-downs, because, while these are actual Company expenses, they can mask underlying trends associated with its business. Such items are often inconsistent in amount and frequency and as such, the adjustments allow an investor greater insight into the current underlying operating trends of the business.

The use of free cash flow provides investors insight into the amount of cash that management could have available for other discretionary uses. It adjusts GAAP cash from operations for capital expenditures, as well as special items like cash used for restructuring charges, unusual tax settlements or payments and contributions to its pension funds. Management uses segment EBIT to measure profitability and performance at the segment level. EBIT is determined by deducting from revenue the related costs and expenses attributable to the segment. Segment EBIT excludes interest, taxes, general corporate expenses not allocated to a particular business segment, restructuring charges and goodwill and asset impairments, which are recognized on a consolidated basis. In addition, revenue growth is presented on a constant currency basis to exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates since the prior period under comparison. Constant currency measures are intended to help investors better understand the underlying operational performance of the business excluding the impacts of shifts in currency exchange rates over the period.

Pitney Bowes has provided a quantitative reconciliation to GAAP in supplemental schedules. This information may also be found at the Company's web site www.pb.com/investorrelations.
