IntercontinentalExchange Group Reports Record 1Q14 Revenues And Adjusted Earnings; Adjusted Diluted EPS Of $2.60 And Adjusted Net Income Attributable To ICE Of $301 Million

IntercontinentalExchange Group (NYSE: ICE), the leading global network of exchanges and clearing houses, today reported record financial results for first quarter of 2014. For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, consolidated net income attributable to ICE was $262 million on consolidated revenues less transaction-based expenses of $932 million. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share (EPS) in the first quarter were $2.27.

Certain items were included in ICE's operating results that were not indicative of the company's core business performance for the first quarter of 2014. Excluding these items, net of tax, first quarter 2014 adjusted net income attributable to ICE was $301 million and adjusted diluted EPS were $2.60. Adjusted figures exclude acquisition-related transaction and integration costs of $60 million and the related tax impact, primarily due to the NYSE Euronext integration. Please refer to the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release for more information on adjusted net income attributable to ICE and adjusted diluted EPS.

ICE Chairman and CEO Jeffrey C. Sprecher said: “These strong results reflect our focus on delivering value for our customers and shareholders. The integration of our businesses is progressing well and the combined team is working to execute on operational and strategic objectives. While the economic environment and volatility remain muted, we are delivering new products and risk management services, as well as extending our footprint in Asia. We believe our strategic roadmap will enable us to continue to grow and establish new ways to serve our customers in 2014 and for years to come.”

Scott Hill, ICE CFO said: “ICE’s strong first quarter results were driven by the addition of new businesses, solid growth in our global agriculture complex and a record quarter for CDS clearing. We achieved record revenues and have taken actions that have already allowed us to realize over 40% of our expense synergy target relating to the NYSE Euronext acquisition, increasing the efficiency of our operations globally. We are on track to deliver on our total expense synergies, pay down debt to reach our targeted levels, divest non-strategic businesses and deliver solid returns to our shareholders."
