  • Operating income of $87.6 million, up $18.4 million, or 26.6%, as compared to the third quarter of 2010, due to a $19.5 million non-cash gain for the changes in fair value of contingent consideration arrangements related to recent acquisitions primarily as a result of a reduction in anticipated revenues for 2011. 
  • Net income of $46.6 million, up $19.0 million, or 68.8%, as compared to the third quarter of 2010. Net income for the third quarter of 2011 includes a $19.5 million non-cash gain for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements, of which $19.2 million is not subject to income taxes.

Third Quarter 2011 Performance

Consolidated Results

Consolidated net revenues decreased by $3.8 million, or 0.9%, to $407.7 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $411.5 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was due to lower net revenues at the Harland Clarke and Scantron segments, in part due to volume declines of certain products and services, partially of offset by an increase in net revenues of $1.5 million for the Harland Financial Solutions segment, as further described below.

Operating income increased by $18.4 million, or 26.6%, to $87.6 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $69.2 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to decreases in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration related to the GlobalScholar acquisition at the Scantron segment and the Parsam acquisition at the Harland Financial Solutions segment that resulted in a non-cash gain of $19.5 million. The reduction in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration was the result of revenue projections that fall below the threshold amount that would trigger a payment. In addition, an increase in operating income for the Harland Clarke segment of $14.8 million was substantially offset by additional costs incurred at the Scantron segment, which were primarily associated with the GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 acquisitions, and deferral of revenue as further described in Segment Results for Scantron below.

Net income increased by $19.0 million, or 68.8%, to $46.6 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $27.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to a $19.5 million non-cash gain for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements, of which $19.2 million is not subject to income taxes.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $3.2 million, or 2.7%, to $113.2 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $116.4 million for the third quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that is defined in the footnotes to this release and reconciled to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables.

Segment Results

Net revenues for the Harland Clarke segment decreased by $6.7 million, or 2.3%, to $283.2 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $289.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was primarily due to volume declines, net of client additions and losses, in check and related products that reduced net revenues by $6.4 million, as well as a decline in non-check revenues, primarily resulting from a decline in sales of a survey solution to assist financial institutions with the implementation of new federal regulations in 2010 that also reduced net revenues by $6.1 million. The decline was partially offset by an increase in revenues per unit, which increased net revenues by $6.7 million. Operating income for the Harland Clarke segment increased by $14.8 million, or 29.0%, to $65.8 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $51.0 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase in operating income was primarily due to labor cost reductions resulting from restructuring activities, increased revenues per unit and lower restructuring costs, asset impairment charges and depreciation and amortization, partially offset by volume declines in checks and related products. Operating income for the third quarters of 2011 and 2010 includes restructuring costs of $0.4 million and $4.2 million, respectively.

Net revenues for the Harland Financial Solutions segment increased by $1.5 million, or 2.1%, to $72.4 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $70.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase was primarily due to revenues from the Parsam acquisition completed in December 2010, which increased net revenues by $1.6 million, as well as a $1.2 million increase in services revenues resulting from new customers. The increases were partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in maintenance revenues due to customers converting to perpetual license agreements, as well as industry trends to hosted versus in-house solutions. Operating income for the Harland Financial Solutions segment decreased by $0.6 million, or 4.3%, to $13.2 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease in operating income was due to an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a result of costs associated with the Parsam acquisition completed in December 2010, increased foreign currency transaction losses, higher incentive compensation accruals and higher travel costs due to expanded selling efforts.

Net revenues for the Scantron segment decreased by $0.9 million, or 1.7%, to $52.4 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $53.3 million for the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was primarily driven by a decline in sales of a survey solution to assist financial institutions with implementation of new federal regulations in 2010 that reduced net revenues by $2.3 million, as well as a $1.2 million reduction in net revenues from volume declines in sales of forms. The revenue decreases were partially offset by $2.5 million of revenues resulting from the acquisitions of GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12. Net revenues for the third quarter of 2011 also included charges of $1.5 million for non-cash fair value acquisition accounting adjustments to deferred revenue related to the GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 acquisitions. In addition, the current accounting for revenue recognition for the recent acquisitions results in a substantial deferral of revenue into future periods for amounts that are billed and collected, while costs related to these sales, with the exception of direct implementation costs, are recognized in the current period. Deferred revenues related to GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 increased by $6.5 million during the third quarter of 2011. Operating income for the Scantron segment increased by $4.2 million, or 53.2%, to $12.1 million for the third quarter of 2011 from $7.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase in operating income was primarily due to a decrease in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration related to the GlobalScholar acquisition that resulted in a non-cash gain of $19.2 million and cost reductions. These decreases were partially offset by costs associated with GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 including a $4.4 million increase in amortization expense, the impact of the revenue acquisition accounting adjustments and volume declines, as well as investments in growth initiatives and a $1.3 million increase in restructuring costs. Operating income for the third quarters of 2011 and 2010 includes restructuring costs of $1.9 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

Year-to-date 2011 Performance

Consolidated Results

Consolidated net revenues decreased by $47.5 million, or 3.8%, to $1,217.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $1,264.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease was due to lower net revenues at the Harland Clarke and Scantron segments in part due to volume declines of certain products and services, partially offset by an increase in net revenues of $9.4 million for the Harland Financial Solutions segment, as further described below.

Operating income decreased by $14.1 million, or 6.2%, to $214.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $228.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease was primarily due to costs associated with the GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 acquisitions, including a $13.2 million increase in amortization expense, and deferral of revenue as further described in Segment Results for Scantron below. These items were partially offset by a decrease in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration related to the GlobalScholar, Spectrum K12, Parsam and SubscriberMail acquisitions that resulted in a non-cash gain of $24.6 million, as well as an $8.8 million increase in operating income for the Harland Financial Solutions segment and a $6.9 million decrease in restructuring costs. The reduction in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration was the result of revenue projections that fall below the threshold amount that would trigger a payment.  

Net income increased by $15.3 million, or 17.4%, to $103.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $87.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase was primarily due to the $24.6 million non-cash gain for changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements, of which $22.8 million is not subject to income taxes, as well as a one-time gain of $13.2 million ($9.5 million after tax) on the sale of marketable securities. These items were partially offset by the decrease in operating income at the Scantron segment resulting from costs incurred related to recent acquisitions and deferral of revenue as further described in Segment Results below.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $37.5 million, or 10.2%, to $330.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $367.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that is defined in the footnotes to this release and reconciled to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables.

Segment Results

Net revenues for the Harland Clarke segment decreased by $61.6 million, or 6.8%, to $845.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $906.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease was primarily due to volume declines, net of client additions and losses, in check and related products that reduced net revenues by $46.0 million, as well as a decline in non-check revenues, primarily resulting from a decline in sales of a survey solution to assist financial institutions with the implementation of new federal regulations in 2010 that reduced net revenues by $12.2 million. In addition, a decrease in revenues per unit reduced net revenues by $1.8 million. The 2010 period also included revenue for a one-time payment of $4.8 million resulting from the loss of a client. The decline in net revenues was partially offset by one additional workday in the 2011 period. Operating income for the Harland Clarke segment increased by $2.5 million, or 1.4%, to $185.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $182.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in operating income was primarily due to labor cost reductions resulting from restructuring activities, lower depreciation and amortization, a decrease in restructuring costs, lower asset impairment charges and declines in general overhead expenses. These increases to operating income were partially offset by the impact of the volume declines, lower revenues per unit in check and related products and the one-time payment resulting from the loss of a client that occurred in 2010. Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 includes restructuring costs of $3.7 million and $7.5 million, respectively.

Net revenues for the Harland Financial Solutions segment increased by $9.4 million, or 4.5%, to $219.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $210.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase was primarily due to revenues from the Parsam acquisition completed in December 2010, which increased net revenues by $4.4 million, as well as a $4.2 million increase in software revenues for perpetual license agreements and a $2.6 million increase in services revenues resulting from new clients. The increases were partially offset by a $2.6 million decrease in maintenance revenues due to certain customers converting to perpetual license agreements, industry trends to hosted versus in-house solutions and customers converting from enterprise to term agreements. Operating income for the Harland Financial Solutions segment increased by $8.8 million, or 24.0%, to $45.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $36.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in operating income was primarily due to the increase in revenues, cost reductions resulting from restructuring and favorable pricing and decreases in depreciation and amortization, which were partially offset by increases in travel costs and selling expenses due to expanded selling efforts.

Net revenues for the Scantron segment decreased by $0.6 million, or 0.4%, to $152.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from $153.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease in net revenues was primarily due to a decline in sales of a survey solution to assist financial institutions with the implementation of new federal regulations in 2010 that reduced net revenues by $5.1 million, as well as a $2.4 million reduction in net revenues from volume declines in sales of forms. The revenue decrease was substantially offset by $7.2 million of revenues resulting from the acquisitions of GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12. Net revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 also included charges of $6.8 million for non-cash fair value acquisition accounting adjustments to deferred revenues related to the GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 acquisitions. In addition, the current accounting for revenue recognition for the recent acquisitions results in a substantial deferral of revenue into future periods for amounts that are billed and collected, while costs related to these sales, with the exception of direct implementation costs, are recognized in the current period. Deferred revenues related to GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 increased by $17.3 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Operating income for the Scantron segment decreased by $23.6 million to an operating loss of $4.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 from operating income of $19.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease in operating income was primarily due costs associated with GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 including a $13.2 million increase in amortization expense, volume declines and the impact of the revenue acquisition accounting adjustments. These decreases were partially offset by a reduction in the fair value of accrued contingent consideration related to the GlobalScholar and Spectrum K12 acquisitions that resulted in a non-cash gain of $22.8 million, as well as cost reductions related to restructuring activities. Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 includes restructuring costs of $4.3 million and $7.1 million, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, Harland Clarke Holdings presents certain adjusted financial measures that are not calculated according to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP financial measures are designed to complement the GAAP financial information presented in this release because management believes they present information regarding Harland Clarke Holdings that management believes is useful to investors. The non-GAAP financial measures presented should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP financial measure.

EBITDA represents net income before interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (other than amortization related to contract acquisition payments). Harland Clarke Holdings presents EBITDA because it believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in Harland Clarke Holdings' industries.

Harland Clarke Holdings believes EBITDA provides useful information with respect to its ability to meet its future debt service, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and overall operating performance, although EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of liquidity. In addition, Harland Clarke Holdings utilizes EBITDA when interpreting operating trends and results of operations of its business.

Harland Clarke Holdings also uses EBITDA for the following purposes: Harland Clarke Holdings' senior credit facilities use EBITDA (with additional adjustments) to measure compliance with financial covenants such as debt incurrence. Harland Clarke Holdings' executive compensation is based on EBITDA (with additional adjustments) performance measured against targets. EBITDA is also widely used by Harland Clarke Holdings and others in its industry to evaluate and value potential acquisition candidates. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. See below for a description of these limitations. Because of these limitations, EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to Harland Clarke Holdings to invest in the growth of its business.

In addition, in evaluating EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future Harland Clarke Holdings may incur expenses such as those excluded in calculating it. Harland Clarke Holdings' presentation of this measure should not be construed as an inference that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • it does not reflect Harland Clarke Holdings' cash expenditures and future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, Harland Clarke Holdings' working capital needs;
  • it does not reflect the significant interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on Harland Clarke Holdings' debt;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
  • it is not adjusted for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in Harland Clarke Holdings' statements of cash flows; and
  • other companies in Harland Clarke Holdings' industries may calculate EBITDA differently from Harland Clarke Holdings, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to invest in the growth of Harland Clarke Holdings' business or as a measure of cash that will be available to Harland Clarke Holdings to meet its obligations. You should compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on Harland Clarke Holdings' GAAP results and using EBITDA only supplementally.

Harland Clarke Holdings presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. Harland Clarke Holdings prepares Adjusted EBITDA by adjusting EBITDA to reflect the impact of a number of items it does not consider indicative of Harland Clarke Holdings' ongoing operating performance. Such items include, but are not limited to, restructuring costs, asset impairment charges, deferred purchase price compensation related to an acquisition, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, gains on the sale of certain marketable securities and certain acquisition accounting adjustments. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons Harland Clarke Holdings considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. As an analytical tool, Adjusted EBITDA is subject to all of the limitations applicable to EBITDA. In addition, in evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future, Harland Clarke Holdings may incur expenses, including cash expenses, similar to the adjustments in this presentation. Harland Clarke Holdings' presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that its future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.
