SunGard Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

SunGard Data Systems Inc. (“SunGard” or the “Company”), one of the world’s leading software and technology services companies, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. For the second quarter, revenue was $673 million, flat year over year (down 1% adjusting for currency). Operating income was $77 million in the quarter, down 16% year over year, driven by a 3% increase in total costs and expenses, and the operating margin was 11.4%, down 2.2 points year over year. Adjusted EBITDA was $159 million, down 12% year over year, and the adjusted EBITDA margin was 23.7%, down 3.3 points year over year. Excluding the $10 million reduction in costs and expense in the prior year quarter from the change to the Company’s vacation liability estimate, Adjusted EBITDA declined 7% year over year and the EBITDA margin declined 1.8 points. Adjusted EBITDA is defined in Note 1 attached to this release.

Year to date, revenue was $1.3 billion, up 1% year over year (flat adjusting for currency). Year to date, the Company incurred an operating loss of $212 million, which includes a $339 million impairment charge. Excluding this charge, operating income was $127 million, down 6% year over year, driven by a 2% increase in total costs and expenses, and operating margin was 9.5%. Adjusted EBITDA was $304 million, down 2% year over year, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 23%, down 0.7 points year over year. See Notes 2 and 3 attached to this release for historical financial information which presents the results of Availability Services in discontinued operations.

Russ Fradin, president and chief executive officer, commented, “Our second quarter results reflect some encouraging trends and the investments we’re making in sales capacity, new product development and the infrastructure to support faster services growth. On the revenue front, we’re pleased with the growth in our recurring revenue base as well as the increase in professional services revenue over the past several quarters. We were, however, disappointed in the relatively low level of software license fees, largely due to the timing of renewals which tend to vary from quarter to quarter. Overall, the market continues to be receptive to our new product introductions and our expanded managed services offerings, as evidenced by the trend towards higher recurring revenue. I’m confident we’re making the right investments to deliver long-term growth and create greater value for our clients.”

Financial Systems (“FS”) segment revenue was $618 million in the second quarter, flat year over year (down 1% year over year adjusting for currency) as growth in services was offset by a decline in software license fees, largely tied to the timing of customer renewals. FS segment costs and expenses were $464 million, up 4% year over year. Excluding the $10 million reduction in costs and expense in the prior year quarter from the change to our vacation liability estimate, FS costs and expenses increased 2% year over year. Investments were made in sales, development and infrastructure to support our improving recurring revenue base. Adjusted EBITDA for the period was $154 million, down 12% from the prior year, and the Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.9%, down 3.3 points from last year. Excluding the change to our vacation liability estimate in the prior year quarter, Adjusted EBITDA declined 7% year over year and the EBITDA margin declined 1.7 points.

Year to date, FS revenue was $1.2 billion, up 1% year over year (flat adjusting for currency). For the same period, adjusted EBITDA was $293 million, a decrease of 3%, compared to the prior year, and the adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.1%, down 0.9 points from last year.

Notable deals in the quarter included the following:

  • SunGard's Front Arena was selected by one of Germany’s oldest private banks in a ten-year deal as a cross-asset, front-to-back sell-side solution to support its capital markets business

Public Sector and Education (“PS&E”) segment revenue was $55 million in the second quarter, up 6% year over year. PS&E segment costs and expenses were $38 million, up 9% year over year, driven by recent new product offerings and the related new services growth. Adjusted EBITDA was $17 million, up 1% year over year, and the adjusted EBITDA margin was 31.3%, down 1.7 points from last year. These results reflect continued strong demand for our public sector solutions.

SunGard’s "Safe Harbor" Statement under Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

Statements in this release other than historical facts constitute forward-looking statements. You can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as "believes," "expects," "may," "will," "would," "should," "seeks," "approximately," "intends," "plans," "estimates," or "anticipates" or similar expressions which concern our strategy, plans or intentions. All statements we make relating to estimated and projected earnings, margins, costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates, financial results and pro forma estimates are forward-looking statements. In addition, we, through our senior management, from time to time make forward-looking public statements concerning our expected future operations and performance and other developments. All of these forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may change at any time, and, therefore, our actual results may differ materially from those we expected. We derive most of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions. While we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, we caution that it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and, of course, it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results. Some of the factors that we believe could affect our results include: global economic and market conditions; the condition of the financial services industry, including the effect of any further consolidation among financial services firms; our high degree of debt-related leverage; the effect of war, terrorism, natural disasters or other catastrophic events; the effect of disruptions to our systems and infrastructure; the timing and magnitude of software sales; the timing and scope of technological advances; the market and credit risks associated with broker/dealer operations; the ability to retain and attract customers and key personnel; risks relating to the foreign countries where we transact business; the integration and performance of acquired businesses; the ability to obtain patent protection and avoid patent-related liabilities in the context of a rapidly developing legal framework for software and business-method patents; a material weakness in our internal controls; and unanticipated changes in our income tax provision or the enactment of new tax legislation, issuance of regulations or relevant judicial decisions The factors described in this paragraph and other factors that may affect our business or future financial results are discussed in our periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, copies of which may be obtained from us without charge. We assume no obligation to update any written or oral forward-looking statement made by us or on our behalf as a result of new information, future events or other factors.

Note 1. Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Operating Income (Loss)
 
We evaluate the performance of our segments using non-GAAP measures. Our primary non-GAAP measure is Adjusted EBITDA, whose corresponding GAAP measure is operating income. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income excluding depreciation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, goodwill and trade name impairment charges, severance and facility closure charges, stock compensation, management fees, and certain other costs.
 
We believe Adjusted EBITDA is an effective tool to measure our operating performance since it excludes non-cash items and certain variable charges. We use Adjusted EBITDA extensively to measure both SunGard and its reportable segments within the Company, and also to report our results to our board of directors.
 
While Adjusted EBITDA is useful for analysis purposes, it should not be considered as an alternative to our reported GAAP results. Also, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is similar, but not identical, to adjusted EBITDA per the Senior Secured Credit Agreement for purposes of our debt covenants (see Note 4).
 
The following is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to the corresponding reported GAAP measures that we believe to be most directly comparable. Percentage changes are computed based on unrounded amounts. Also, reported amounts may not sum to totals due to rounding.

Note 4. Reconciliation of Income (Loss) from Continuing Operations to EBITDA and Reconciliation of EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA Per Senior Secured Credit Agreement
 
EBITDA represents income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to give effect to certain items that are required in calculating covenant compliance under our senior secured credit facilities, as amended, our senior notes and senior subordinated notes. Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement is calculated by subtracting from or adding to EBITDA items of income or expense described below. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement are not recognized terms under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement do not represent income (loss) from continuing operations, as that term is defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to income (loss) from continuing operations as an indicator of our operating performance. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management or discretionary use as such measures do not consider certain cash requirements such as capital expenditures (including capitalized software expense), tax payments and debt service requirements. SunGard considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement to be key indicators of our ability to pay our debt. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement as presented herein are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures. The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement to income (loss) from continuing operations, the GAAP measure we believe to be most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per our Senior Secured Credit Agreement. Further information regarding this reconciliation is included in our periodic filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby.
