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

    TORONTO, Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constellation Software Inc. (TSX:CSU) (“Constellation” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020 and declared a $1.00 per share dividend payable on October 9, 2020 to all common shareholders of record at close of business on September 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 six months ended June 30, 2020 and the accompanying notes, our Management Discussion and Analysis for the three and six months ended June 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 remain both grateful and impressed by the Constellation employees who continue to re-think, re-invent and re-imagine how they support each other and our customers through the many challenges created by COVID-19. Q2 2020 Headlines: * Revenue grew 9% (negative 8% organic growth, negative 7% after adjusting for changes in foreign exchange rates) to $922 million compared to $846 million in Q2 2019.  * Net income increased 12% to $83 million ($3.90 on a diluted per share basis) from $73 million ($3.45 on a diluted per share basis) in Q2 2019. * Impairment of intangible and other non-financial assets was $4 million in Q2 2020 versus nil in Q2 2019. * A number of acquisitions were completed for aggregate cash consideration of $67 million (which includes acquired cash).  Deferred payments associated with these acquisitions have an estimated value of $17 million resulting in total consideration of $84 million. * Cash flows from operations (“CFO”) were $237 million, an increase of 370%, or $186 million, compared to $50 million for the comparable period in 2019. * Free cash flow available to shareholders1 (“FCFA2S”) increased $178 million to $190 million compared to $12 million for the same period in 2019.   * CFO and FCFA2S were positively impacted by the deferral of approximately $29 million of tax instalment payments to the second half of 2020 in conjunction with the certain government’s COVID-19 relief programs.  * The Company determined that certain of its subsidiaries qualified for an estimated aggregate amount of $17 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 June 30, 2020, the Company completed or entered into agreements to acquire a number of businesses for aggregate cash consideration of $64 million (which includes acquired cash).  Deferred payments associated with these acquisitions have an estimated value of $14 million resulting in total consideration of $78 million. 1\. See Non-IFRS measures.  Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $922 million, an increase of 9%, or $76 million, compared to $846 million for the comparable period in 2019.  For the first six months of 2020 total revenues were $1,875 million, an increase of 13%, or $210 million, compared to $1,665 million for the comparable period in 2019.  The increase for both the three and six 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 8% and negative 5% respectively, negative 7% and negative 4% respectively 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 June 30, 2020 was $83 million compared to net income of $73 million for the same period in 2019.  On a per share basis, this translated into a net income per diluted share of $3.90 in the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to net income per diluted share of $3.45 for the same period in 2019.  For the six months ended June 30, 2020, net income was $166 million or $7.81 per diluted share compared to $160 million or $7.54 per diluted share for the same period in 2019.For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, CFO increased $186 million to $237 million compared to $50 million for the same period in 2019 representing an increase of 370%.  For the first six months of 2020, CFO increased $263 million to $597 million compared to $334 million during the same period in 2019, representing an increase of 79%. For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, FCFA2S increased $178 million to $190 million compared to $12 million for the same period in 2019.  For the first six months of 2020, FCFA2S increased $238 million to $501 million compared to $263 million during the same period in 2019, representing an increase of 91%.   CFO and FCFA2S for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 were positively impacted by the deferral of approximately $29 million of tax instalment payments to the second half of 2020 in conjunction with certain government’s COVID-19 relief programs.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 June 30,   Six months ended June 30,      2020 2019    2020 2019      ($ in millions, except percentages) ($ in millions, except percentages)               Net cash flows from operating activities  237 50    597 334    Adjusted for:            Interest paid on lease obligations  (2)(2)   (4)(4)   Interest paid on other facilities  (5)(7)   (14)(15)   Credit facility transaction costs  (0)-    (0)-    Payments of lease obligations  (16)(13)   (30)(23)   TSS membership liability revaluation charge  (17)(8)   (35)(18)   Property and equipment purchased  (6)(8)   (13)(15)   Interest and dividends received  0 0    0 3                 Free cash flow available to shareholders  190 12    501 263                 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".
