ATLANTA & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE), the leading global network of exchanges and clearing houses and provider of global data and listing services, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2016. For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, consolidated net income attributable to ICE was $357 million on $1.1 billion of consolidated revenues less transaction-based expenses. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share (EPS) in the second quarter were $2.98. On an adjusted basis, net income was $411 million and diluted EPS were $3.43. Please refer to the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release for more information on adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS.
“Our performance in the first half of 2016 extends our track record of consistent growth and execution,” said ICE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey C. Sprecher. “Revenues grew across both our trading and clearing and data and listings business segments and we accelerated expense synergies and reduced our 2016 expense guidance. As a result, we delivered double-digit earnings growth in the first half of 2016 and are positioned to continue delivering double-digit earnings growth even as we invest to build our business and generate industry leading returns.”
Scott A. Hill, ICE CFO, said: “We generated over $1 billion of operating cash flows in the first six months of the year, which enabled us to reduce our debt by nearly $800 million and to return over $200 million to shareholders through dividends. In addition, our Board approved pursuing a 5-for-1 stock split to enhance trading efficiency and accessibility for all shareholders as well as a new $1 billion share repurchase program that supports our ability to consider additional capital returns to our shareholders.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Reconciliation
We use non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate our performance and in making financial and operational decisions. When viewed in conjunction with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, we believe that our presentation of these measures provides investors with greater transparency and a greater understanding of factors affecting our financial condition and results of operations than GAAP measures alone. In addition, we believe the presentation of these measures is useful to investors for period-to-period comparison of results because the items described below as adjustments to GAAP are not reflective of our core business performance. These financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP financial measures and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We use these adjusted results because we believe they more clearly highlight trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures, since these measures eliminate from our results specific financial items that have less bearing on our core operating performance. We strongly recommend that investors review the GAAP financial measures included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including our consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto.
Adjusted net income attributable to ICE common shareholders and adjusted earnings per share for the periods presented below are calculated by adding or subtracting the adjustments described below, which are not reflective of our cash operations and core business performance, and their related income tax effect and other tax adjustments (in millions, except for per share amounts):
