DFIN Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results

11/02/2022

CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelley Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: DFIN) (the "Company" or "DFIN") today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

Highlights for the third quarter of 2022:

  • Record third-quarter software solutions net sales of $69.5 million; software solutions net sales accounted for 36.8% of total net sales, up from 28.0% in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Net earnings of $19.2 million, or $0.62 per diluted share; Adjusted EBITDA(a) of $45.3 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 24.0%.
  • Third-quarter operating cash flow of $83.3 million; third-quarter Free Cash Flow(a) of $68.7 million.
  • Non-GAAP gross leverage of 0.8x and non-GAAP net leverage of 0.8x.
  • During the third quarter, the Company repurchased 959,579 shares for $32.3 million at an average price of $33.72 per share. As of September 30, 2022, the remaining share repurchase authorization was $137.9 million.

(a) Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items noted in the reconciliation tables below. The tables below provide reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures.


"We continue to see proof points that support the success of our software-focused strategy. We delivered record third-quarter software solutions revenue, driven by double-digit net sales growth from our recurring compliance software products ActiveDisclosure and Arc Suite. Software solutions net sales made up nearly 37% of third quarter 2022 total net sales, an increase of approximately 880 basis points from last year's third-quarter sales mix, and positions us well to achieve our long-term target of deriving 55% to 60% of revenue from software by 2026," said Daniel N. Leib, DFIN's president and chief executive officer.

Leib continued, "Despite a weaker than expected capital markets transactional environment that resulted in our transactional revenue being nearly halved from prior year, we delivered another quarter of strong margin performance. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the quarter was 24.0%, which was in-line with our expectation and once again above historical quarters with similar overall and transactional revenue. Our third-quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin, which benefitted from our evolving sales mix, permanent changes to our cost structure, and continued cost discipline, further demonstrates our ability to sustainably operate at a higher level of profitability across a range of market conditions."

"While the outlook for capital markets transactional activity remains uncertain, our solid financial results and strong balance sheet provide us with the financial flexibility to continue to invest to shift toward a more favorable recurring sales mix. We will continue to aggressively manage our cost structure and remain disciplined in the allocation of capital as we execute our transformation to become the market leading provider of regulatory and compliance solutions." Leib concluded.

Net Sales

Net sales in the third quarter of 2022 were $188.7 million, a decrease of $59.0 million, or 23.8%, from the third quarter of 2021. Net sales decreased primarily due to lower capital markets transactional volumes, which decreased approximately $56 million, or 49%, year over year, partially offset by higher software solutions net sales in Arc Suite and ActiveDisclosure.

Net Earnings

For the third quarter of 2022, net earnings were $19.2 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, as compared to $42.2 million, or $1.22 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2022 included after-tax charges of $4.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, primarily related to share-based compensation expense and restructuring impairment and other charges, net. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2021 included after-tax charges of $4.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, primarily related to share-based compensation expense and restructuring impairment and other charges, net.

Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Earnings

For the third quarter of 2022, Adjusted EBITDA was $45.3 million, a decrease of $37.2 million as compared to the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.0%, a decrease of approximately 930 basis points as compared to the third quarter of 2021. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were primarily driven by lower sales volumes and an unfavorable sales mix, partially offset by lower selling expense as a result of the decrease in sales volume, lower incentive compensation expense, and the impact of cost savings initiatives.

For the third quarter of 2022, non-GAAP net earnings were $23.7 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, as compared to $47.1 million, or $1.36 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021.

Reconciliations of net earnings to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP net earnings are presented in the attached tables.

Regulatory Impacts

The Company previously disclosed in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on July 22, 2020, that the implementation of SEC Rule 30e-3 (elimination or reduction of print annual and semi-annual reports), Rule 498A (elimination or reduction of print summary prospectus) and the Company's exiting of certain printing and distribution relationships were expected to reduce the Company's print-related 2021 net sales by approximately $130 million to $140 million, with the associated reduction in net earnings and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $4 million to $7 million and approximately $5 million to $10 million, respectively, in 2021.

In 2021, the Company realized reductions in net sales, net earnings and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $100 million, $2 million and $3 million, respectively. For 2022, the Company expects an incremental reduction in print-related net sales of approximately $30 million with a de minimis impact on net earnings and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company reaffirms these estimates at this time.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

This news release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP selling, general, and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings, adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, Free Cash Flow and organic net sales. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, provide useful information about the Company's operating results and liquidity and enhance the overall ability to assess the Company's financial performance. The Company uses these measures, together with other measures of performance under GAAP, to compare the relative performance of operations in planning, budgeting and reviewing the performance of its business.

The Company's non-GAAP statement of operations measures, which include non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A, adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings and adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, are adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operations. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of expenses associated with the Company's COVID-19 related recoveries and expenses, LSC multiemployer pension plans obligations, non-income tax charges (income), net, accelerated rent expense, share-based compensation and eliminate potential differences in results of operations between periods caused by factors such as historic cost and age of assets, financing and capital structures, taxation positions or regimes, restructuring, impairment and other charges and gain or loss on certain equity investments and asset sales. 

Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as net cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. By adjusting for the level of capital investment in operations, the Company believes that free cash flow can provide useful additional basis for understanding the Company's ability to generate cash after capital investment and provides a comparison to peers with differing capital intensity.

Organic net sales is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as reported net sales adjusted for the changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures are defined differently by different companies in our industry and, accordingly, such measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.

Use of Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of, and subject to the safe harbor created by, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with respect to the business, strategy and plans of DFIN and its expectations relating to future financial condition and performance. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about DFIN management's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Words such as "believes," "anticipates," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "aims," "potential," "will," "would," "could," "considered," "likely," "estimate" and variations of these words and similar future or conditional expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. While DFIN believes these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond DFIN's control. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon future circumstances that may or may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from DFIN's current expectations depending upon a number of factors affecting the business and risks associated with the performance of the business. These factors include such risks and uncertainties detailed in DFIN periodic public filings with the SEC, including but not limited to those discussed under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in DFIN's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, those discussed under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in DFIN's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and in other investor communications of DFIN's from time to time. DFIN does not undertake to and specifically declines any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect future events or circumstances after the date of such statement or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

__________

(a)

The Company has a $300.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility"). The Revolving Facility is subject to a number of covenants, including a minimum Interest Coverage Ratio and a maximum Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio, both as defined and calculated in the credit agreement. There was $67.5 million of borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Facility as of September 30, 2022, and no outstanding letters of credit that reduced the availability under the Revolving Facility as of September 30, 2022. Based on the Company's results of operations for the twelve months ended September 30, 2022 and existing debt, the Company would have had the ability to utilize the remaining $232.5 million of the $300.0 million Revolving Facility and not have been in violation of the terms of the Revolving Facility agreement.
