Interactive Data Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

Interactive Data Corporation today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. Interactive Data's second quarter 2014 revenue was $232.1 million, a 3.1% increase from $225.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, Interactive Data's organic (non-GAAP) revenue for the second quarter of 2014 grew by 1.3% from the same quarter last year. 

Interactive Data's second quarter 2014 income from operations was $27.9 million, compared with $49.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are either not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) for the second quarter of 2014 was $86.9 million, compared with $88.3 million in the same period one year ago. 

"Our second quarter results reflect our ability to navigate the relatively sluggish spending environment that has persisted into 2014," stated Stephen Daffron, Interactive Data's president and CEO. "We have continued to produce organic revenue growth due to the combination of modest growth in our Pricing and Reference Data segment in North America and solid expansion within our 7ticks trading infrastructure managed services area. Our adjusted EBITDA results reflect our efforts to remain vigilant in controlling costs while continuing to direct investment into the product development and technology infrastructure initiatives that we believe will help us accelerate our top-line and bottom-line expansion over the long term." 

Segment Reporting and Related Operating Highlights

Pricing and Reference Data Segment:

  • Interactive Data's Pricing and Reference Data segment reported second-quarter 2014 revenue of $165.8 million, a 3.6% increase over $160.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, second quarter 2014 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this segment increased by 2.2% from the same period last year. The segment's performance reflects growth in the Company's evaluated pricing and reference data services in North America, and, to a lesser extent, improved results in its BondEdge fixed income analytics product area. Key highlights during the second quarter of 2014 included Interactive Data's continued progress expanding its services in support of leading index providers such as Barclays Risk Analytics and Index Solutions and MSCI. In May, Interactive Data expanded its NY Close International Fixed Income Evaluation Services to include coverage of sovereign and corporate bonds issued in the Asia‐Pacific region. In addition, BondEdge Solutions announced a new suite of equity analysis and reporting tools and also launched BondEdge Advance, a web-based solution that enables broker dealers and asset managers to easily and cost-effectively perform comprehensive fixed income analysis functions for their clients.

Trading Solutions Segment:

  • Interactive Data's Trading Solutions segment generated second quarter 2014 revenue of $66.3 million, an increase of 1.9% over $65.0 million in the same period one year ago. Excluding the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, second quarter 2014 organic (non-GAAP) revenue for this segment declined 0.8% from the same period last year as growth in the 7ticks trading infrastructure managed services product area was more than offset by a modest decline in other key product areas. In May 2014, Interactive Data announced that Joachim Lauterbach, an experienced financial technology industry executive, was appointed as president and global head of its Managed Solutions business which develops, operates, and hosts customized financial portals and mobile solutions as well as desktop terminals designed for retail and private banks, investment companies, online brokers, exchanges, and media portals. Other recent highlights for the segment included continued enhancement of the Company's range of workstation platforms, including the launch of a new version of eSignal and a related alliance that allows eSignal users to directly access social media sentiment indicators from industry leaders such as Market Prophit. 

Other Second Quarter 2014 Financial and Operating Highlights

Effects of Foreign Exchange:

  • The net effect of changes in foreign exchange rates increased second quarter 2014 income from operations by $0.6 million. 

Refinancing Activity:

  • As previously announced, in early May Interactive Data entered into a new $2.1 billion senior secured credit facility, consisting of a five year $160 million Revolver (currently unfunded) and a seven year $1.9 billion Term Loan. Additionally, the Company completed the offering of $350 million in aggregate principal amount 5.875% Senior Notes due 2019. Net proceeds from these activities, along with approximately $94 million in cash, were used to refinance its $1.3 billion existing Term Loan, redeem Interactive Data's $700 million 10.25% Senior Notes due 2018, pay related fees and expenses, and fund a $273 million dividend payment to Igloo Holdings Corporation, its parent entity, which in turn paid a dividend to its equity holders.  

    The Company is not reporting Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA (also referred to as Covenant EBITDA) within this second quarter earnings release. The new senior secured credit facility contains a definition of Covenant EBITDA that differs from the definition of Covenant EBITDA in the previous senior secured credit facility. The Company is currently evaluating Covenant EBITDA under the new definition and will report on Covenant EBITDA in connection with its third quarter earnings release.

Balance Sheet Highlights:

  • As of June 30, 2014, Interactive Data had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $254.8 million, compared with $326.9 million last quarter, $289.3 million at the same time last year and $360.2 million at the end of 2013. The Company's cash position reflected the aforementioned use of $94 million as part of the May 2014 financing activity. The Company's total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2014 was approximately $2.25 billion compared to approximately $2.0 billion as of the same time last year. 

First Half 2014 Results

  • For the first six months ended June 30, 2014, Interactive Data reported revenue of $466.5 million, an increase of $17.9 million, or 4.0%, from $448.6 million in the same period last year. Excluding the effects of foreign exchange, organic revenue grew by 2.6% during the first half of 2014. 
     
  • Interactive Data's first half 2014 income from operations was $68.8 million, compared with $93.0 million in the same period one year ago. For the first half of 2014, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (which excludes items that are not part of the Company's ongoing core operations, or do not require a cash outlay, or are not otherwise expected to recur in the ordinary course) was $168.6 million, compared with $171.4 million in the same period one year ago.
