    TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On October 20, 2020, Constellation announced that it had resolved to pay a special dividend of Topicus.com shares, conditional upon receipt by Constellation of such spin-out shares by November 17th.

    Constellation Software Inc. Announces Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2020 and Declares Quarterly Dividend

    TORONTO, Nov. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constellation Software Inc. (TSX:CSU) (“Constellation” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 and declared a $1.00 per share dividend payable on January 11, 2021 to all common shareholders of record at close of business on December 18, 2020. This dividend has been designated as an eligible dividend for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada). Please note that all dollar amounts referred to in this press release are in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated. The following press release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and the accompanying notes, our Management Discussion and Analysis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and with our annual Consolidated Financial Statements, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and our annual Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2019, which can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website www.csisoftware.com. Additional information about the Company is also available on SEDAR at www.sedar.comOur board remains inspired by the dedication and commitment of the Constellation employees who continue to adapt and find new ways to provide value and make a difference in support of each other and our customers by finding opportunities in the challenges created by COVID-19.Q3 2020 Headlines: * Revenue grew 15% (negative 1% organic growth, negative 3% after adjusting for changes in foreign exchange rates) to $1,003 million compared to $870 million in Q3 2019.   * Net income increased 50% to $122 million ($5.76 on a diluted per share basis) from $82 million ($3.85 on a diluted per share basis) in Q3 2019. * Impairment of intangible and other non-financial assets was $3 million in Q3 2020 versus nil in Q3 2019. * A number of acquisitions were completed for aggregate cash consideration of $123 million (which includes acquired cash). Deferred payments associated with these acquisitions have an estimated value of $25 million resulting in total consideration of $148 million. * Cash flows from operations (“CFO”) were $234 million, an increase of 32%, or $57 million, compared to $177 million for the comparable period in 2019. * Free cash flow available to shareholders1 (“FCFA2S”) increased $47 million to $181 million compared to $134 million for the same period in 2019. * The Company determined that certain of its subsidiaries qualified for an estimated aggregate amount of $12 million of grants from various government authorities, and recognized such amounts as a reduction to expenses in the quarter. * On May 20, 2020 the Company entered into a binding agreement with IJssel B.V. to purchase 100% of the shares of Topicus.com B.V., a Netherlands-based diversified vertical market software provider. The transaction is currently expected to close in 2020, subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions. * Subsequent to September 30, 2020, the Company completed or entered into agreements to acquire a number of businesses for aggregate cash consideration of $47 million (which includes acquired cash). Deferred payments associated with these acquisitions have an estimated value of $19 million resulting in total consideration of $66 million.1.  See Non-IFRS measures. Total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $1,003 million, an increase of 15%, or $133 million, compared to $870 million for the comparable period in 2019. For the first nine months of 2020 total revenues were $2,878 million, an increase of 14%, or $343 million, compared to $2,534 million for the comparable period in 2019. The increase for both the three and nine month periods compared to the same periods in the prior year is primarily attributable to growth from acquisitions as the Company experienced organic growth of negative 1% and negative 4% respectively, and negative 3% for both periods after adjusting for the impact of changes in the valuation of the US dollar against most major currencies in which the Company transacts business.Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $122 million compared to net income of $82 million for the same period in 2019. On a per share basis, this translated into a net income per diluted share of $5.76 in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to net income per diluted share of $3.85 for the same period in 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net income was $288 million or $13.58 per diluted share compared to $241 million or $11.39 per diluted share for the same period in 2019.For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, CFO increased $57 million to $234 million compared to $177 million for the same period in 2019 representing an increase of 32%. For the first nine months of 2020, CFO increased $320 million to $831 million compared to $512 million during the same period in 2019, representing an increase of 62%.For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, FCFA2S increased $47 million to $181 million compared to $134 million for the same period in 2019.   For the first nine months of 2020, FCFA2S increased $285 million to $682 million compared to $397 million during the same period in 2019, representing an increase of 72%.The Company is closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on all aspects of its business. COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has had disruptive effects in countries in which the Company operates and has adversely impacted many of its business units’ operations to date, including through the cancellation by certain customers of their ongoing software maintenance contracts and the suspension or cancellation of new software purchases. The pandemic may also have an adverse impact on many of the Company’s customers, including their ability to satisfy ongoing payment obligations to the Company, which could increase the Company’s bad debt exposure. The future impacts of the pandemic and any resulting economic impact are largely unknown and rapidly evolving. It is possible that the COVID-19 pandemic, the measures taken by the governments of countries affected and the resulting economic impact may continue to adversely affect the Company’s results of operations, cash flows and financial position as well as its customers in future periods, and this impact could be material.Forward Looking Statements Certain statements herein may be “forward looking” statements that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Constellation or the industry to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such results will be achieved. A number of factors could cause actual results to vary significantly from the results discussed in the forward looking statements. These forward looking statements reflect current assumptions and expectations regarding future events and operating performance and are made as of the date hereof and Constellation assumes no obligation, except as required by law, to update any forward looking statements to reflect new events or circumstances.Non-IFRS MeasuresFree cash flow available to shareholders ‘‘FCFA2S’’ refers to net cash flows from operating activities less interest paid on lease obligations, interest paid on other facilities, credit facility transaction costs, repayments of lease obligations, the TSS membership liability revaluation charge, and property and equipment purchased, and includes interest and dividends received. Constellation believes that FCFA2S is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the uncommitted cash flow that is available to shareholders if Constellation does not make any acquisitions, or investments, and does not repay any debts. While Constellation could use the FCFA2S to pay dividends or repurchase shares, Constellation’s objective is to invest all of our FCFA2S in acquisitions which meet Constellation’s hurdle rate.FCFA2S is not a recognized measure under IFRS and, accordingly, readers are cautioned that FCFA2S should not be construed as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities.The following table reconciles FCFA2S to net cash flows from operating activities:   Three months ended September 30,   Nine months ended September 30,     2020 2019    2020 2019     ($ in millions, except percentages) ($ in millions, except percentages)             Net cash flows from operating activities  234 177    831 512   Adjusted for:           Interest paid on lease obligations  (2)(2)   (6)(5)  Interest paid on other facilities  (8)(8)   (22)(23)  Credit facility transaction costs  (0)(0)   (0)(0)  Payments of lease obligations  (17)(12)   (47)(35)  TSS membership liability revaluation charge  (20)(12)   (55)(30)  Property and equipment purchased  (5)(9)   (19)(24)  Interest and dividends received  0 0    1 3               Free cash flow available to shareholders  181 134    682 397               Due to rounding, certain totals may not foot.           About Constellation Software Inc.Constellation's common shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "CSU".
