NYSE Euronext Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: NYX

NYSE Euronext (NYX) today reported net income of $173 million, or $0.71 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, for the second quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $125 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. Results for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012 included $22 million and $12 million, respectively, of pre-tax merger expenses and exit costs. Second quarter 2013 results also included a $10 million gain recorded for non-operating items due to the sale of a portion of our equity stake in LCH.Clearnet and a reserve release related to a favorable settlement with certain European tax authorities which significantly reduced our GAAP effective tax rate. Excluding merger expenses, exit costs, disposal activity and discrete tax items, net income in the second quarter of 2013 was $153 million, or $0.63 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis, compared to $128 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012.

“We continue to execute solidly against our business plan as we build momentum toward closing the ICE deal,” said Duncan L. Niederauer, CEO, NYSE Euronext. “We successfully transitioned our London-based derivatives market to ICE Clear Europe and were ranked number one year-to-date in capital raising with our market share in technology listings increasing to 64%. The strength of our listings franchise continues to build and we are very pleased to welcome Oracle to the NYSE today to close the market. We were also appointed the administrator for LIBOR. Turning to our transaction with ICE, we are gratified that our shareholders and the European Commission have approved the transaction and we are working with the College of Regulators in Europe and other regulators to obtain all the appropriate remaining approvals.”

“Our results for the second quarter reflect the actions we have taken to grow our businesses and diligently manage our cost base and capital,” commented Michael S. Geltzeiler, Group Executive Vice President and CFO, NYSE Euronext. “On a constant dollar/portfolio basis, costs are down 7% year-to-date and we have already achieved 64% of the $250 million Project 14 target for costs reductions, well ahead of the 60% promised by year-end 2013. Further cost savings will come online in the second-half of 2013 with the completed transition to ICE Clear Europe which will position us to easily surpass our full-year cost guidance target of $1,525 million. Turning to capital, capital expenditures year-to-date are running 30% below the prior year period and we are on track to come in well below our 2013 guidance of $150 million. We retired the $414 million remaining on our $750 million June 2013 notes, which combined with strong EBITDA generation, reduced our debt-to-EBITDA ratio to 1.9 times. The debt retirement will reduce interest expense in the second half of the year. All of these actions have helped bolster our business model and set the table for our proposed combination with ICE.”
