05/03/2023

CHICAGO, May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelley Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: DFIN) (the "Company" or "DFIN") today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2023.

Highlights:

  • Record first-quarter software solutions net sales of $70.1 million, an increase of 0.4%, or 3.7% on an organic basis(a), from the first quarter of 2022; software solutions net sales accounted for 35.3% of total net sales, up from 33.1% in the first quarter of 2022.
  • Total net sales of $198.6 million.
  • Net earnings of $15.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share; Adjusted EBITDA(a) of $42.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin(a) of 21.3%.
  • Non-GAAP gross leverage of 1.1x and non-GAAP net leverage of 1.0x.
  • During the first quarter, the Company repurchased 33,568 shares for $1.3 million at an average price of $38.82 per share. As of March 31, 2023, the remaining share repurchase authorization was $123.0 million.
  • The Company sold its investment in Mediant for $11.8 million during the first quarter.

(a) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and organic net sales 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 are pleased with our consolidated results for the first quarter, in light of ongoing macroeconomic headwinds negatively impacting our transactionally-driven offerings. Total software solutions net sales increased 0.4%, or 3.7% on an organic basis, compared to the first quarter of 2022, driven by the positive momentum in our recurring compliance software products, which grew approximately 5% organically. Venue net sales were down 0.9% from last year's first quarter, once again outpacing the trend in capital markets transactional sales. Total software solutions net sales made up 35.3% of first-quarter net sales, an increase of 220 basis points from last year's first-quarter sales mix and positions us well to achieve our long-term goal of deriving 55% to 60% of revenue from software by 2026," said Daniel N. Leib, DFIN's president and chief executive officer.

Leib continued, "As we anticipated, capital markets transactional activity remained weak during the first quarter, with new equity issuances at a near-record low and M&A activity far below historic levels. Despite the prolonged downturn in capital markets transactional environment that resulted in our first-quarter transactional revenue being down 20.2% from prior year, our margin performance remained resilient. We delivered Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21.3% in the quarter, which reflected a combination of planned incremental investments aimed to accelerate our transformation and aggressive cost management in certain areas of the Company. Our first-quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin, which continues to benefit from our evolving sales mix, permanent changes to our cost structure, and disciplined cost control, further demonstrates our ability to sustainably operate at a higher level of profitability compared to historical quarters with similar overall and transactional revenues."

"Entering the second quarter, our focus areas remain unchanged – invest to drive toward a more recurring sales mix, aggressively manage our cost structure, and allocate capital in a disciplined manner – all aimed at enhancing our ability to continue to execute our software-focused strategy. While the near-term outlook for capital markets transactional activity remains challenging, our portfolio of market-leading regulatory and compliance offerings and deep domain and service expertise position us well to serve our clients when transactional market activity returns to a normalized level," Leib concluded.

Net Sales

Net sales in the first quarter of 2023 were $198.6 million, a decrease of $12.4 million, or 5.9% (a decrease of 4.4% on an organic basis), from the first quarter of 2022. Net sales decreased primarily due to lower capital markets transactional volumes and the impact of the EdgarOnline disposition, partially offset by higher software solutions net sales in Arc Suite and ActiveDisclosure.

Net Earnings

For the first quarter of 2023, net earnings were $15.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, as compared to $26.4 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022. Net earnings in the first quarter of 2023 included after-tax charges of $3.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, primarily related to restructuring, impairment and other charges, net partially offset by a net realized gain on the sale of an investment in an equity security. Net earnings in the first quarter of 2022 included after-tax charges of $1.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, primarily related to restructuring, impairment and other charges, net and share-based compensation expense.

Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Earnings

For the first quarter of 2023, Adjusted EBITDA was $42.4 million, a decrease of $8.7 million as compared to the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 21.3%, a decrease of approximately 290 basis points as compared to the first quarter of 2022. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were primarily driven by lower capital markets transactional sales volumes and incremental investments to accelerate our transformation, partially offset by the impact of cost control initiatives, price uplifts, and lower selling expense as result of the decrease in sales volume.

For the first quarter of 2023, non-GAAP net earnings were $19.0 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, as compared to $28.3 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022.

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

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 non-income tax, 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, net and gain or loss on certain investments, business sales 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 and the impact of dispositions.

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" and in Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors of DFIN's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, 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 were $110.5 million of borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Facility as of March 31, 2023, and no outstanding letters of credit that reduced the availability under the Revolving Facility as of March 31, 2023. Based on the Company's results of operations for the twelve months ended March 31, 2023 and existing debt, the Company would have had the ability to utilize the remaining $189.5 million of the $300.0 million Revolving Facility and not have been in violation of the terms of the Revolving Facility agreement.
