CONSOLIDATED RESULTS
Revenue increased 23 percent to $1.27 billion while adjusted EBITDA, net increased 8 percent to $332 million for the second quarter of 2014. EPS increased 28 percent to $2.19 and core EPS increased 20 percent to $2.90 for the second quarter of 2014, exceeding guidance of $2.70.

Diluted shares outstanding were 62.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, down approximately 8 percent or 5.5 million shares compared to the second quarter of 2013. The decrease is primarily due to the maturity of the convertible senior notes during the third quarter of 2013 and second quarter of 2014.

Ed Heffernan, president and chief executive officer, noted: "The year continues to unfold better than we had anticipated. In January of this year, we guided to full-year core EPS of $12.20, a 22 percent increase compared to 2013. After the first quarter, we bumped this guidance slightly to $12.25. And now, we are comfortably raising guidance again to $12.35, a robust 23 percent increase compared to 2013. Looking at the segments:

  • Private Label's growth accelerated during the second quarter as average card receivables increased 17 percent - all organic - compared to 15 percent in the first quarter of 2014, which translated to proportionate revenue acceleration, up 16 percent in the second quarter compared to 13 percent in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, net increased a solid 5 percent during the second quarter, despite both a build in the loan loss reserve and higher payroll expenses associated with personnel needed to on-board a record number of new clients in 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, net growth rates are expected to accelerate in the back half of 2014 as the newly on-boarded clients start generating revenue.
  • Epsilon's performance during the second quarter demonstrated strong organic top line with revenue up 8 percent and improved bottom line with adjusted EBITDA, net up 6 percent compared to the second quarter of 2013. The rollout of the FordDirect program to 3,000 Ford and Lincoln dealers remains on track for completion by year end, providing a strong jump-off point entering 2015. Equally as important, our next generation digital messaging platform, Harmony, was successfully moved into full production during the second quarter. The product launched with the on-boarding of a new, large client with excellent results to date. Our expectation for the year is to post high single-digit organic revenue growth and mid-single-digit adjusted EBITDA growth.
  • Our LoyaltyOne segment now consists of the AIR MILES® Reward Program in Canada, the recently acquired BrandLoyalty, which operates primarily in Europe and Asia, and our 37 percent joint venture ownership stake in the Brazilian coalition program, dotz. Starting with AIR MILES, we saw a positive trend develop in its key metric, AIR MILES reward miles issued, which improved from being down 4 percent in the first quarter to flat in the second quarter of 2014. The financial results for AIR MILES followed a similar trend as, on a constant currency basis, revenue increased 6 percent and adjusted EBITDA was essentially flat with the second quarter compared to slightly negative growth in the first quarter of 2014. Shifting to BrandLoyalty, it continues to perform above expectations as both revenue and adjusted EBITDA increased over 20 percent - all organic - compared to the second quarter of 2013. Growth in core countries and markets, as well as significant inroads in new countries and markets, is driving these solid results. Lastly, dotz added another half-million collectors during the second quarter as it expanded in both existing and new markets.

To summarize, as we've expected, 2014 is in good shape. Core EPS growth is expected to continue to accelerate as the year progresses due to both operating expense leveraging as new clients begin producing revenue, and a lower diluted share count. This back-half acceleration has the added benefit of setting the stage for a strong 2015."

SEGMENT REVIEW
LoyaltyOne: Overall revenue increased 62 percent to $356 million and adjusted EBITDA, net increased 17 percent to $77 million for the second quarter of 2014. For the AIR MILES Reward Program, revenue was flat at $219 million while adjusted EBITDA, net decreased 6 percent to $62 million for the second quarter of 2014. Unfavorable Canadian translation rates negatively impacted revenue and adjusted EBITDA, net by $14 million and $4 million, respectively, for the second quarter of 2014. For BrandLoyalty, revenue and adjusted EBITDA, net were $136 million and $26 million ($16 million, net of non-controlling interest), respectively, for the second quarter of 2014.

AIR MILES reward miles issued was consistent with the second quarter of 2013. Growth was limited during the second quarter for two reasons: 1) the impact of new regulations in one Canadian province restricting the issuance of AIR MILES related to prescription drug purchases, and 2) a short-term disruption from the merger of two of our grocery sponsors. AIR MILES reward miles redeemed increased 11 percent compared to the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to growth in redemptions related to the instant reward offering.  

During the second quarter, dotz, our joint venture in Brazil, expanded into a tenth market by entering the metropolitan area of Goiania, home to 2.3 million Brazilians. Dotz finished the second quarter with 12.5 million collectors, up from 10.8 million at the start of the year and is on track to exceed the year-end target of 13 million. Also during the quarter, LoyaltyOne added Moneris Solutions and Kent Building Supplies as sponsors in the AIR MILES Reward Program, expanded its relationship with Sobeys across Canada, and signed a long-term consulting agreement with Loblaw.     

Epsilon: Overall revenue increased 8 percent to $357 million and adjusted EBITDA, net increased 6 percent to $68 million for the second quarter of 2014. Technology revenue increased a robust 14 percent to $124 million, and agency revenue increased 6 percent to $191 million, while data revenue dropped 2 percent to $42 million due to weakness in off line data offerings. Signed revenue backlogs remain strong, up double-digits compared to the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA growth was dampened in the second quarter of 2014 due to up-front expenses associated with the on-boarding of new clients.

As discussed previously, an updated release of Harmony rolled out in the second quarter with success. Currently, a dozen clients are in full production on the platform, helping boost digital volume growth to double digits in the first half of 2014. Several features were added to Harmony in this release, such as 'scheduling intelligence', which leverages big data insights gleaned from the billions of messages Epsilon sends annually. This feature is producing significant results as measured by the percentage increase in 'open rates' by ensuring the right messages reach consumers at the right time and on the right device.

During the quarter, Epsilon announced multi-year agreements with Ann, Inc. to provide a comprehensive customer relationship database across multiple channels including email, direct mail and on line, and FordDirect, to be the technology provider for ConsumerConnection, a multichannel marketing platform that enables dealers to deliver tailored communications to their customers and prospects.

Private Label Services and Credit: Revenue increased 16 percent to $557 million and adjusted EBITDA, net increased 5 percent to $210 million for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA, net growth was muted by a $39 million, or 67 percent, increase in the loan loss provision driven by the strong growth in ending credit card receivables.  

Credit sales increased 22 percent for the second quarter of 2014, aided by an 11 percent increase in core cardholder spending. Average credit card receivables increased 17 percent to $8.2 billion compared to the second quarter of 2013, while ending card receivables increased 18 percent to $8.5 billion compared to June 30, 2013. Principal loss rates were 4.4 percent for the second quarter of 2014, down 20 basis points from the second quarter of 2013. Portfolio funding costs were $30 million for the second quarter of 2014, essentially flat with the second quarter of 2013, but down 30 basis points to 1.5 percent, expressed as a percentage of average credit card receivables. 

During the quarter, Private Label signed new multi-year agreements with JD Williams and Overstock.com to provide private label credit card services in the U.S., and signed long-term renewal agreements with Eddie Bauer and Bealls and Burkes Outlet to continue to provide private label and marketing services.  In addition, Private Label signed multi-year agreements with Orbitz, The American Kennel Club and Good Sam Enterprises to provide co-brand credit card services.

2014 Outlook
Third Quarter: The Company expects approximately $1.30 billion in revenue and $3.25 in core EPS, increases of 19 percent (9 percent organic) and 22 percent, respectively, for the third quarter of 2014. We expect acceleration in core EPS growth for the remainder of 2014 as the diluted share count drops following the maturity of the convertible notes in May 2014.    

Full Year: The Company is raising full-year guidance from $5.25 billion to $5.30 billion in revenue, and from $12.25 to $12.35 in core EPS. The revised guidance reflects revenue and core EPS increases of 23 percent (9 percent organic) and 23 percent, respectively, for 2014.

Financial Measures
In addition to the results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company may present financial measures that are non-GAAP measures, such as constant currency financial measures, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, net of funding costs and non-controlling interest, core earnings and core earnings per diluted share (core EPS). The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, viewed in addition to and not in lieu of the Company's reported GAAP results, provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations. These metrics are an integral part of the Company's internal reporting to measure the performance of reportable segments and the overall effectiveness of senior management. Reconciliations to comparable GAAP financial measures are available in the accompanying schedules and on the Company's website. The financial measures presented are consistent with the Company's historical financial reporting practices. Core earnings and core earnings per diluted share represent performance measures and are not intended to represent liquidity measures.
