Western Union Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results

Non-GAAP Measures

Western Union presents a number of non-GAAP financial measures because management believes that these metrics provide meaningful supplemental information in addition to the GAAP metrics and provide comparability and consistency to prior periods. These non-GAAP financial measures include revenue change constant currency adjusted; pro forma revenue change TGBP and constant currency adjusted; operating income margin excluding restructuring and TGBP integration expense; EBITDA margin excluding restructuring and TGBP integration expense; earnings per share adjusted for restructuring, the IRS Agreement and TGBP integration expense; Consumer-to-Consumer segment revenue change constant currency adjusted; Business Solutions segment pro forma revenue change TGBP and constant currency adjusted; 2013 EBITDA margin outlook; 2013 operating cash flow outlook IRS Agreement adjusted; and additional measures found in the supplemental schedule included with this press release.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP to comparable GAAP measures are available in the accompanying schedules and in the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at www.westernunion.com.

EBITDA

Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) results from taking operating income and adjusting for depreciation and amortization expenses. The 2012 EBITDA has been adjusted to exclude TGBP integration expense, and the 2011 EBITDA has been adjusted to exclude restructuring expenses and TGBP integration expense. EBITDA results provide an additional performance measurement calculation which helps neutralize the operating income effect of assets acquired in prior periods.

TGBP Integration

The Company recorded approximately $43 million of integration expense for TGBP in 2012, of which approximately $12 million was incurred in the fourth quarter. The Company recorded approximately $5 million of integration expense for TGBP in the fourth quarter of 2011. TGBP integration expense consists primarily of severance and other benefits, retention, direct and incremental expense consisting of facility relocation, consolidation and closures; IT systems integration; amortization of a transitional trademark license; and other expenses such as training, travel, and professional fees. Integration expense does not include costs related to the completion of the TGBP acquisition.
