Second Quarter and Year-to-Date 2013 Segment Performance

On a consolidated basis, IHS continued to deliver solid profit growth amid difficult economic conditions. At a segment level, EMEA results were negatively impacted by foreign currency movements and slowing revenue growth, and APAC results were adversely impacted by the timing of certain renewals and foreign currency movements, as well as continuing investment in the region’s infrastructure to support future growth. Segment results were as follows:

  • Americas. Second quarter revenue for the Americas increased $27 million, or 12 percent, to $258 million. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA for the Americas increased $16 million, or 17 percent, to $108 million. Second quarter operating income for the Americas increased $11 million, or 16 percent, to $80 million.Year-to-date revenue for the Americas increased $49 million, or 11 percent, to $487 million. Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA for the Americas increased $30 million, or 17 percent, to $202 million. Year-to-date operating income for the Americas increased $22 million, or 18 percent, to $142 million.
  • EMEA. Second quarter revenue for EMEA decreased $1 million, or one percent, to $113 million. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA for EMEA decreased $5 million, or 15 percent, to $27 million. Second quarter operating income for EMEA was down $4 million, or 15 percent, to $20 million.Year-to-date revenue for EMEA increased $9 million, or four percent, to $222 million. Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA for EMEA decreased $6 million, or 10 percent, to $51 million. Year-to-date operating income for EMEA decreased $8 million, or 19 percent, to $36 million.
  • APAC. Second quarter revenue for APAC increased $4 million, or 10 percent, to $48 million. Second quarter adjusted EBITDA for APAC decreased $1 million, or eight percent, to $11 million. Second quarter operating income for APAC decreased $1 million, or 11 percent, to $10 million.Year-to-date revenue for APAC increased $12 million, or 15 percent, to $91 million. Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA for APAC increased $1 million, or five percent, to $21 million. Year-to-date operating income for APAC increased $1 million, or three percent, to $20 million.

“Strong performance and operational execution in the Americas was offset by adverse foreign currency movements in EMEA that masked solid execution in the face of continuing economic challenges in the region,” said Key. “Foreign currency changes also negatively impacted overall performance in APAC as we continue to invest in the region to fully capture the growth potential.”
