Adjusted Diluted 3Q EPS Increases 10% to $1.33 (As Reported $1.10, a Decrease of 9%)

Growth and Value Plan on Track for Separation of McGraw-Hill Education

2012 Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share Guidance Increased to a Range of $3.35 to $3.40

NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The McGraw-Hill Companies (NYSE: MHP) today reported third quarter revenue of $1,953 million, an increase of 2% compared to the same period last year.  McGraw-Hill Financial reported a 15% increase and McGraw-Hill Education reported an 11% decline.  Net income from continuing operations decreased 14% to $314 million and diluted earnings per share decreased 9% to $1.10.

Excluding the impact of one-time costs related to the Growth and Value Plan and associated restructuring, which totaled $99 million, adjusted net income from continuing operations increased 3% to $379 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 10% to $1.33. This increase was primarily the result of strong growth at McGraw-Hill Financial.

"We are pleased by the success of our Growth and Value Plan and the strong results of the McGraw-Hill Financial businesses. McGraw-Hill Financial, which now includes the newly formed S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture, achieved double-digit growth in revenue and adjusted operating profit in the quarter.  McGraw-Hill Education, under the new leadership of Buzz Waterhouse, managed through the weakest K–12 market in a decade while accelerating digital products and services and building world-class capabilities to drive global growth," said Harold McGraw III, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of The McGraw-Hill Companies.  He continued, "2012 will be remembered as a year of monumental change at The McGraw-Hill Companies.  A little over one year ago we made a set of commitments that we collectively named the Growth and Value Plan.  I am proud of the substantial progress our employees have made on each commitment.  Collectively, we have successfully reshaped the Company into what will soon be two powerful new companies, McGraw-Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education, which will be global leaders in their respective markets."

Key achievements of the Growth and Value Plan include:

  • Separation: The separation of McGraw-Hill Education is progressing on two fronts as both sale and spin-off options are evaluated.  A decision should be finalized in the coming weeks.
  • Investing for Growth: Focusing on innovative products and technologies, the Company has made several investments year-to-date.  The most visible has been the formation of the S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture which combines some of the most widely followed and trusted brands in the index space.  During the third quarter, Platts initiated its first foray into the agricultural commodities market with the announced acquisition of Kingsman SA.  This followed acquisitions of R2 Financial Technologies, QuantHouse, Credit Market Analysis Limited, and Coalition Development Ltd. earlier this year.
  • Cost Reductions: Work is in the final phase to achieve the commitment of realizing at least $100 million in cost savings, on a run-rate basis, by year-end.  During the third quarter, numerous accounting work streams and selected information technology support services were migrated to world-class partners that specialize in these operations.  The remaining work streams targeted for migration, which include some human resource processes, are on track for transfer in the coming months.
  • Share Repurchases: During the third quarter, 5.9 million shares were repurchased, for a total of $295 million at an average price of $50.35 per share.

The Outlook:  "With a solid performance at McGraw-Hill Financial, and the strength in global debt issuance, we are increasing our 2012 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance to be in the range of $3.35 to $3.40," said Mr. McGraw.

McGraw-Hill Financial: Businesses that make up what will be the new McGraw-Hill Financial reported revenue of $1,117 million and adjusted segment operating profit of $402 million, an increase of 15% and 21%, respectively, compared to the same period a year ago. McGraw-Hill Financial will include the following lines of business:

- Standard & Poor's Ratings Services: Quarterly revenue exceeded $500 million for the first time in 19 quarters, increasing 22% to $502 million. This growth was almost entirely organic as the impact from the acquisition of Coalition Development Ltd. in July 2012 was minimal.  Operating profit, which includes Growth and Value Plan costs, increased 24%.  Adjusted operating profit increased 28% to $217 million in the third quarter compared to a relatively weak quarter in 3Q 2011.  The adjusted operating profit margin increased to 43% in the quarter.

Transaction revenue increased 64% to $215 million compared to the same period last year, driven by a 72% increase in U.S. corporate issuance and a 126% increase in European corporate issuance.  Public finance issuance increased 9%, contributing to the growth as well.  Worldwide structured issuance was unchanged.  A 65% increase in U.S. structured finance issuance from a small base, driven by asset-backed securities and collateralized loan obligations, was offset by a 33% decline in European structured finance issuance due to a decrease in covered bond activity.

During the quarter, non-transaction revenue increased 3% and represented 57% of Standard & Poor's Ratings' total revenue compared to 68% for the same period last year.

Domestic revenue increased 33%, outpacing a 12% increase in international revenue. Foreign exchange rates negatively impacted international revenue by $15 million. International revenue represented 45% of Standard & Poor's Ratings' total third quarter revenue.

- S&P Capital IQ / S&P Indices:  Revenue increased 13% to $393 million.  Organic growth accounted for 2% and new revenue from the Dow Jones Indexes as well as the acquisitions of QuantHouse, R2 Financial Technologies, and Credit Market Analysis Limited accounted for the balance.  Operating profit, which includes Growth and Value Plan costs, decreased 11%.  Adjusted operating profit increased 5% to $119 million.

Because the S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture is a majority-owned entity, 100% of its revenue and expenses are consolidated into the Company's financial statements.  In accordance with U.S. GAAP, 27% of the net income that is not owned by the Company is removed from the Company's income statement in the "net income attributable to noncontrolling interests" line.

S&P Capital IQ's revenue increased by 9% to $284 million. Two key products, S&P Capital IQ (within Desktop Solutions) and Global Data Solutions (within Enterprise Solutions), both delivered solid growth despite continued layoffs within the financial industry.  The number of S&P Capital IQ clients increased 15% over the past year to more than 4,400.

S&P Capital IQ continues to focus on integrating its recent acquisitions and leveraging this newly added technological expertise to develop new product offerings that will begin to launch in 2013.

S&P Indices' revenue grew 24% to $109 million as a result of the addition of Dow Jones Indexes' revenue from the newly created S&P Dow Jones Indices joint venture.  Excluding the impact of the joint venture, revenue decreased 7% as the volume of exchange-traded derivative contracts based on S&P's indices could not match the unusually high levels in the third quarter of 2011.  During the third quarter of 2011, investors turned to the futures market to hedge against European crisis concerns.

Assets under management in exchange-traded funds based on S&P's indices increased 40% to $390 billion at the end of the quarter.  Including the Dow Jones Indexes, assets under management reached $454 billion.

S&P Capital IQ / S&P Indices' international revenue increased 10% to $117 million in the third quarter and represented 30% of the segment's total revenue.

- Commodities & Commercial Markets:  Revenue increased 5% to $239 million.  Operating profit, which includes Growth and Value Plan costs, increased 17%.  Adjusted operating profit increased by 29% to $66 million in the third quarter, compared to the same period last year.

Platts continued its record performance resulting in 13% revenue growth at Commodities to $121 million for the period. Petroleum product subscriptions, global trading services, and Bentek Energy® all contributed to double-digit growth.

Commercial Markets' revenue decreased 2% as gains at J.D. Power and Associates, which is on track to record its best year ever, were offset by modest declines in the rest of the segment.

McGraw-Hill Education:  Revenue for the segment decreased 11% to $836 million.  The growth in sales of digital products, which continues across all product lines, is impacting reported revenues.  Approximately one third of the reported revenue decline during the third quarter is attributable to the deferral of revenue associated with digital and other subscription-based products.  Excluding the impact of increased deferred revenue associated with the migration to a more subscription-centric business model, third quarter revenue decreased 7%.

To combat the current challenging business environment, McGraw-Hill Education reduced expenses 9% compared to the third quarter of 2011.

Operating profit, which includes Growth and Value Plan costs, decreased 20%.  Adjusted operating profit decreased 15% to $268 million in the third quarter, compared to the same period last year.  The greatest shortfall was in the School Education Group (SEG) which continues to face a weak K–12 market.

- Higher Education, Professional and International Group (HPI):  Revenue decreased 6% to $484 million in the third quarter compared to the same period last year as all three components of HPI experienced revenue declines. Excluding the impact of increased deferred revenue associated with continued transition to a more subscription-centric business model, third quarter revenue decreased 5%.

Economic conditions in both the U.S. and around the globe created a difficult business environment for HPI. However, the continued migration to digital solutions is helping to mitigate those pressures by offering opportunities for new products and services with growing revenue streams in all our major markets.

Higher Education recorded 16% of its revenue in the quarter from digital sales, an increase of 23% versus the third quarter of 2011.  Student usage of our homework study solutions has grown by 67%, boosted by usage of LearnSmart™ which now has more than 890,000 registered students, an increase of 115% from last year.

Professional continues to build its digital business with 29% of revenue in the quarter from digital products and services.  Earned revenue for digital subscription platforms, which include AccessMedicine®, increased 33%.

International has realized the greatest increase in digital revenue with August year-to-date e-books and digital homework sales increasing 84%. August year-to-date revenue from the Company's Access platform, which offers a suite of medical and engineering content to institutional libraries, increased 62%.

- School Education Group (SEG):  Revenue decreased 16% to $352 million for the quarter.  Excluding the impact of increased deferred revenue associated with the migration to a more subscription-centric business model, third quarter revenue decreased 10%.

The continued weakness in state and local educational funding continued to impact K–12 spending across the U.S.  In addition to budgetary pressures, a cyclical downturn in scheduled purchasing is projected to result in a decrease of approximately 40% in the 2012 state new adoption market.  While maintaining a focus on reducing expenses, SEG has aligned its products with the Common Core State Standards and expanded its all-digital and hybrid print-digital offerings.

Corporate Expense:  Adjusted corporate expense, which excludes Growth and Value Plan charges, increased by $2 million to $43 million in the third quarter, largely driven by increased incentive compensation.

Growth and Value Plan Non-GAAP Adjustments:  During the third quarter, there were $99 million of one-time charges related to the Growth and Value Plan, which includes restructuring charges.  Approximately one half of these charges were related to professional fees and the other half was related to restructuring actions.  These charges are excluded from the adjusted results.

Share Repurchase Program:  The Company resumed its share repurchase program in the third quarter and repurchased 5.9 million shares, for a total of $295 million, at an average price of $50.35 per share.  In total, the Company anticipates repurchasing up to $500 million in shares in the second half of 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow:  Cash and short-term investments at the end of the third quarter were $1,245 million, up from $973 million at the end of 2011.  The Company's 5.375% Senior Notes will mature on November 15, 2012. There is sufficient liquidity to manage any planned debt payment.  Year-to-date, 2012 free cash flow (see exhibits 3 and 9) was $420 million, a decrease of $207 million from the same period of 2011.  This was due primarily to timing of certain tax payments and one-time costs associated with the Growth and Value Plan.
