Growth and Value Plan on Track with Separation into Two Companies by Year-End

26 Jul, 2012, 07:10 ET from The McGraw-Hill Companies

 

NEW YORK, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The McGraw-Hill Companies (NYSE: MHP) today reported revenue of $1,547 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 1% compared to the same period last year, as a result of a 5% increase at McGraw-Hill Financial and a 12% decline at McGraw-Hill Education. Net income from continuing operations increased 2% to $216 million and diluted earnings per share increased 11% to $0.76.

Excluding the impact of one-time costs related to the Growth and Value Plan, adjusted net income from continuing operations increased 15% to $243 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 25% to a second quarter record of $0.85. This increase, similar to the first quarter, was primarily due to strong growth at Commodities & Commercial and S&P Capital IQ / S&P Indices.

"We are pleased by the continuing progress of our Growth and Value Plan in establishing two powerful companies, McGraw-Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education, by the end of the year," said Harold McGraw III, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of The McGraw-Hill Companies. "Our employees are to be applauded for delivering stellar results while simultaneously advancing the separation and implementing major cost reductions. We are delivering record adjusted earnings despite the challenging global macro-economic environment, including both the impact of the European debt crisis on global debt issuance and reduced state budgets on textbook spending."

The key achievements during the quarter that advanced the Growth and Value Plan include:

  • Key management for McGraw-Hill Education is now in place, including Lloyd G. "Buzz" Waterhouse as president and chief executive officer and Patrick Milano as chief financial officer and chief administrative officer.
  • The Form 10 SEC registration statement was filed on July 11, 2012.
  • Cost reductions are accelerating towards the goal to achieve at least $100 million in cost savings, on a run-rate basis, by year-end.
  • Key workstreams are well underway to drive the separation of numerous finance & accounting, human resource, information technology, and other support services.
  • The S&P Dow Jones Indices, the world's largest provider of financial market indices, was launched on June 29, 2012.

The Outlook:  "We now expect to be near the high end of our previous 2012 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance of $3.25 to $3.35," said Mr. McGraw. "We will revisit our guidance again after we report the third quarter, traditionally the largest of the year."

McGraw-Hill Financial: Businesses that make up what will be the new McGraw-Hill Financial reported revenue of $1,073 million and adjusted operating profit of $394 million, an increase of 5% and 9%, respectively, compared to the same period a year ago. McGraw-Hill Financial will include the following lines of business:

- Standard & Poor's Ratings Services: Revenue increased 1% to $483 million and operating profit decreased 2% to $208 million in the second quarter compared to 2Q 2011—the strongest quarter of 2011 for this segment. Operating profit margins in the quarter were 43%.

Transaction revenue increased 4% to $203 million compared to the same period last year, driven by a 58% increase in U.S. public finance issuance as local governments took advantage of historically low rates. U.S. corporate issuance decreased 9%, driven by a 39% decline in speculative-grade issuance as investors became more risk averse. U.S. corporate investment-grade issuance remained resilient, up 7%. European corporate issuance experienced an overall decline of 36% as non-financial corporate issuance growth of 13% was offset by a 58% decline in financial services issuance. U.S. structured finance issuance increased 22%; however, worldwide structured finance issuance declined 36% driven by a decline in European issuance of 60%.

During the quarter, non-transaction revenue decreased 2% primarily due to adverse foreign exchange rates. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, non-transaction revenue increased 2%. Non-transaction revenue represented 58% of S&P Ratings' total revenue compared to 59% for the same period last year.

Domestic revenue increased 7% but was largely offset by a decrease of 6% in international revenue. Foreign exchange rates negatively impacted international revenue by $13 million but had a negligible impact on profit. International revenue represented 46% of S&P Ratings' total second quarter revenue.

Operating profit was down in the quarter primarily due to selective additions in ratings analysts and legal expenses.

- S&P Capital IQ / S&P Indices:  Revenue increased 10% to $366 million and adjusted operating profit increased 17% to $115 million.

S&P Capital IQ's revenue increased by 9% to $277 million. Solid revenue gains were reported in both Desktop Solutions and Enterprise Solutions. Contributing meaningfully to that growth was increased revenue from ratings products, including the Global Credit Portal and RatingsXpress. Despite a very competitive environment and downsizing at some customers, the number of S&P Capital IQ clients increased 13% over the past year to more than 4,200.

Credit Market Analysis Limited (CMA) was acquired from the CME Group at the end of the second quarter. The business will become part of S&P Capital IQ — broadening its existing pricing and data businesses and bolstering its asset-class coverage of OTC securities.

S&P Indices' revenue grew 12% to $89 million as assets under management in exchange-traded funds and mutual funds, as well as trading volume of exchange-traded derivatives all experienced growth. Year-over-year, assets under management in ETFs based on S&P's indices increased 7% to $349 billion.

The launch of S&P Dow Jones Indices took place on June 29th. The combination of these two iconic brands will facilitate the creation of new ideas and solutions that will enable clients to create products that foster increased liquidity and investment choices for investors. With the transaction closing so late in the quarter, the earnings impact was not material.

S&P Capital IQ / S&P Indices' international revenue increased 12% to $115 million in the second quarter and represented 31% of the segment's total revenue.

- Commodities & Commercial:  Revenue increased 9% to $241 million and operating profit grew by 45% to $71 million in the second quarter, compared to the same period last year.

Platts continued its record performance resulting in 19% revenue growth at Commodities to $121 million for the period. Excluding the acquisition of Steel Business Briefing Group, which was not included in second quarter 2011 results, Commodities' revenue grew 15% to $117 million.

Commercial's revenue was down 1% as gains by J.D. Power and Associates, which is on track to record its best year ever, were offset by modest declines at McGraw-Hill Construction and Aviation Week.

McGraw-Hill Education:  Revenue for the segment declined 12% to $474 million while operating profit improved by 36% to $57 million in the second quarter, compared to the same period last year. The improvement in operating income was primarily the result of restructuring actions and ongoing tight expense management.

- Higher Education, Professional and International Group (HPI):  Revenue decreased 2% to $241 million in the second quarter compared to the same period last year. Higher Education revenue growth was offset by declines in International revenue, predominately related to the strong U.S. dollar. Higher Education's digital and customized products are being well received in the marketplace. In particular, sales of homework management product Connect, which is sold with LearnSmart, an adaptive learning system, grew by 65%. LearnSmart, designed to help college students learn faster, study more efficiently, and retain more knowledge, is available for approximately 150 different college course titles.

McGraw-Hill Professional continues to lead the transition to digital materials with 34% of revenue in the quarter derived from digital products and services. Of particular note was the 33% growth of digital subscription platforms, which include AccessMedicine, a product suite of subscription-based Websites that feature regularly updated medical content and access to more than 65 medical titles.

- School Education Group (SEG):  Revenue decreased 20% to $233 million for the quarter. The elementary-high school market continues to be impacted by the economic issues facing the states and local school districts. In addition, the state new adoption schedule for 2012 offers the lowest revenue potential for publishers in many years. As a result, the School Education Group anticipates an overall reduction of 10% in the K–12 market this year, which represents the lowest spending level in over a decade. Despite the difficult environment, SEG continues to provide innovative products including new testing materials and programs in reading and mathematics that meet the new Common Core standards. All of its major new programs include digital components, and increasingly many products are wholly digital.

Corporate Expense:  Adjusted corporate expense was unchanged at $44 million in the second quarter, compared to the same period last year as a result of overall tight expense management.

Growth and Value Plan Non-GAAP Adjustments:  During the quarter, there were $42 million of one-time charges related to the Growth and Value Plan. Of the total, $27 million, comprised largely of professional fees and severance, was recorded in general corporate expense. $15 million was recorded for transaction costs associated with the acquisition of the Dow Jones Index business. These charges are excluded from the adjusted results.

Share Repurchase Program:  Since completing the previously announced $1.5 billion share repurchase program in April, no additional shares have been repurchased. 22.7 million shares remain under the existing share repurchase authorization. The Company anticipates resuming share repurchases in the second half of the year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow:  Cash and short-term investments at the end of the second quarter were $839 million, a $134 million decline from December 31, 2011. Year-to-date, 2012 free cash flow (see exhibits 3 and 9) was negative $122 million, a decrease of  $194 million from the same period of 2011.  This was due primarily to a temporary acceleration of approximately $100 million in payments to vendors associated with a transition to a new accounting system, as well as $65 million of cash outlays associated with the Growth and Value Plan.

Comparison of Adjusted Information to U.S. GAAP Information: Adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net income, adjusted operating profit and adjusted corporate expense are non-GAAP financial measures contained in this earnings release that are derived from the Company's continuing operations.

The forward-looking statements in this news release involve risks and uncertainties and are subject to change based on various important factors, including worldwide economic, financial, liquidity, political and regulatory conditions; the health of debt (including U.S. residential mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations) and equity markets, including possible future interest rate changes; the health of the economy and in advertising; the level of expenditures and state new adoptions and open territory sales in the education market; the successful marketing of competitive products; and the effect of competitive products and pricing.

In addition, there are certain risks and uncertainties relating to our previously announced Growth and Value Plan which contemplates a separation of our education business, including, but not limited to, the impact and possible disruption to our operations, the timing and certainty of completing the transaction, unanticipated developments that may delay or negatively impact the spin-off, and the ability of each business to operate as an independent entity upon completion of the spin-off.
