·18 min read

Delivers EPS Growth and Strong Margin Performance

Increases Synergy Expectations

Re-Commences Capital Allocation Strategy

Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201029005439/en/

"We are pleased with our results for the third quarter, which demonstrate substantial ongoing improvement across our markets and significant margin expansion for each of our segments," said Jeff Sloan, Chief Executive Officer. "These results validate the actions we took at the start of the pandemic to position our businesses and return to growth. We are grateful to our team members for their extraordinary commitments to our customers, to each other and to the communities in which they live and work during this difficult time.

"We have made meaningful progress strategically this year, with an emphasis on driving further digital growth. We are delighted with our collaboration with Amazon Web Services, our preferred cloud provider of issuer technologies, a relationship that is already generating significant momentum since our August announcement; the acquisition of an incremental stake in our joint venture with CaixaBank in October, bringing our ownership to 80%; and the ongoing mix shift of our revenues toward technology enablement, where we recently crossed the 60% target that we set in March 2018, ahead of our plan."

Sloan concluded, "We accomplished these goals during the pandemic while also extending relationships with some of the largest, most sophisticated and complex worldwide financial institutions including HSBC Group in Europe and CIBC in Canada for merchant services, as well as by taking share in card issuing services through partnerships with market leaders in technology and financial services. As a result of our strong performance through the third quarter, we are returning to our traditional capital priorities, including share repurchases."

Third Quarter 2020 Summary

  • GAAP revenues were $1.918 billion, compared to $1.106 billion in the third quarter of 2019; diluted earnings per share were $0.74 compared to $0.54 in the prior year; and operating margin was 15.1%.

  • Adjusted net revenues declined 4% to $1.746 billion, compared to $1.820 billion in the third quarter of 2019 on a combined basis.

  • Adjusted earnings per share increased 1% to $1.71, compared to $1.70 in the third quarter of 2019.

  • Adjusted operating margin of 41.1% expanded 250 basis points on a combined basis.

Financial Highlights

"We delivered solid financial performance for the third quarter, enabled by the continued recovery across our markets, our attractive business mix and ongoing outstanding execution," said Paul Todd, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Importantly, the immediate and significant cost actions we took in response to the pandemic drove strong adjusted operating margin expansion this quarter, and we are pleased to have delivered adjusted earnings per share growth from the prior year period.

"Based on progress on our integration activities, we are raising our expectations for annual run rate expense synergies from the TSYS merger to $375 million, an increase from our prior estimate of $350 million. We also remain on track to deliver at least $125 million in annual run rate revenue synergies and $400 million in additional annual run rate expense savings related to the pandemic, which is incremental to the TSYS merger cost synergies."

Todd concluded, "The extraordinary health of our business, including our strong cash flows and investment grade balance sheet, has served us well during this period. We are pleased to announce that our Board of Directors has increased our share repurchase authorization to $1.25 billion, and we look forward to re-commencing the return of capital to our shareholders and managing our pipeline."

Capital Allocation

Global Payments’ Board of Directors approved a dividend of $0.195 per share payable December 31, 2020 to shareholders of record as of December 17, 2020.

Conference Call

Global Payments’ management will host a live audio webcast today, October 29, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. ET to discuss financial results and business highlights. All interested parties may access the audio webcast via the investor relations page of the company’s website at investors.globalpaymentsinc.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Global Payments supplements revenues, income, operating income, operating margin and earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP by providing these measures with certain adjustments (such measures being non-GAAP financial measures) in this earnings release to assist with evaluating our performance. In addition to GAAP measures, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to focus on the factors the company believes are pertinent to the daily management of our operations.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure are included in the schedules to this release.

The non-GAAP information for 2019 is presented on a combined basis and includes TSYS results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 determined in accordance with GAAP applied by TSYS and presented with Global Payments' adjustments to revenue and operating income.

See Schedules 6 and 7 for a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP measure.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Global Payments supplements revenues, income, operating income, operating margin and EPS determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP by providing these measures with certain adjustments (such measures being non-GAAP financial measures) in this document to assist with evaluating our performance. In addition to GAAP measures, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to focus on the factors the company believes are pertinent to the daily management of our operations. Management believes adjusted net revenue more closely reflects the economic benefits to the company's core business and allows for better comparisons with industry peers. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, together with other metrics, to set goals for and measure the performance of the business and to determine incentive compensation. Adjusted net revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS should be considered in addition to, and not as substitutes for, revenues, operating income, net income and EPS determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures reflect management's judgment of particular items, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted net revenue excludes gross-up related payments associated with certain lines of business to reflect economic benefits to the company. On a GAAP basis, these payments are presented gross in both revenues and operating expenses. Adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS exclude acquisition-related amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration expense and certain other items, such as unusual, direct and discrete costs due to the global pandemic, specific to each reporting period as more fully described in the accompanying reconciliations in Schedules 6 and 7. Adjusted operating margin is derived by dividing adjusted operating income by adjusted net revenue. The tax rate used in determining the income tax impact of earnings adjustments is either the jurisdictional statutory rate in effect at the time of the adjustment or the jurisdictional expected annual effective tax rate for the period, depending on the nature and timing of the adjustment.
