"Our total revenues exceeded $2 billion for the first time in our history, and we met the high end of the range of our adjusted cash EPS guidance of $1.72. This was truly a transformational year for TSYS," said Philip W. Tomlinson, chairman and chief executive officer of TSYS.

"During the fourth quarter, we reduced our debt by $62.5 million, bringing our total reductions since the NetSpend acquisition to $124.9 million. Also during the quarter, we purchased 3.1 million shares of our stock for $97.6 million. We are pleased to announce our Board of Directors has approved increasing the number of shares that may be repurchased under our current share repurchase plan from up to 20 million shares to up to 28 million shares and extended the expiration date of the plan to April 30, 2015. With the increase, we have approximately 12 million shares available to be repurchased under the plan," said Tomlinson.

"Our guidance for 2014 is included in the table below and we expect another year of strong growth in revenues and adjusted cash EPS. We expect growth in total revenues of 17% to 19%, revenues before reimbursable items of 19% to 21%, adjusted EBITDA of 17% to 20%, and adjusted cash EPS of 11% to 13%. The results for 2013 and our guidance for 2014 reflect our focus on diversification, growth and the exceptional performance of our TSYS team,” said Tomlinson.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” – that is, statements related to future, not past, events. Forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “believe,” “should,” “plan,” ”potential,” “will,” “could,” and similar expressions. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding TSYS’ earnings guidance for 2014 total revenues, revenues before reimbursable items, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted cash EPS, and the assumptions underlying such statements. These statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of TSYS’ management, are based on management’s assumptions and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. A number of important factors could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those contemplated by our forward-looking statements in this press release. Many of these factors are beyond TSYS’ ability to control or predict. These factors include, but are not limited to, TSYS’ ability to integrate NetSpend and other acquisitions and achieve the anticipated growth opportunities and other benefits of the acquisitions; the effect of current domestic and worldwide economic conditions; the material breach of security of any of TSYS’ systems; risks associated with foreign operations, including adverse developments with respect to foreign currency exchange rates; expenses are incurred associated with the signing of a significant client; the deconversion of a significant client; changes occur in laws, rules, regulations, credit card association rules or other industry standards affecting TSYS and our clients that may result in costly new compliance burdens on TSYS and our clients and lead to a decrease in the volume and/or number of transactions processed; the costs and effects of litigation, investigations or similar matters or adverse facts and developments relating thereto; adverse developments with respect to the credit card industry in general, including a decline in the use of credit cards as a payment mechanism; and growth rates of TSYS’ existing clients are lower than anticipated or attrition rates of existing clients are higher than anticipated. Additional risks and other factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those contemplated in this release can be found in TSYS’ filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. We believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable; however, undue reliance should not be placed on any forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
Non-GAAP Measures
 

The schedule below provides a reconciliation of revenues and operating results on a constant currency basis to reported revenues and operating income. This non-GAAP measure presents fourth quarter and full year 2013 financial results using the previous year’s foreign currency exchange rates. On a full year constant currency basis, TSYS’ total revenues grew 15.1% as compared to a reported GAAP increase of 14.0%.
 
The schedule below also provides a reconciliation of basic EPS, adjusted for the after-tax impact of acquisition intangible amortization, share-based compensation and merger and acquisition costs, to adjusted cash EPS.
 

The tax rate used in the calculation of cash EPS for the quarter and year is equal to an estimate of our annual effective tax rate on GAAP income. This effective rate is estimated annually and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events or trends that materially impact the effective tax rate including, but not limited to, significant changes resulting from tax legislation, material changes in the mix of revenues and expenses by entity and other significant events.
 
The schedule also provides a reconciliation of net income, adjusted for equity in income of equity investments, income taxes, nonoperating expense, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, and merger and acquisition expenses, to adjusted EBITDA.
 
TSYS believes that non-GAAP financial measures are important to enable investors to understand and evaluate its ongoing operating results. Accordingly, TSYS includes non-GAAP financial measures when reporting its financial results to shareholders and investors in order to provide them with an additional tool to evaluate TSYS’ ongoing business operations. TSYS believes that the non-GAAP financial measures are representative of comparative financial performance that reflects the economic substance of TSYS’ current and ongoing business operations.
 
Although non-GAAP financial measures are often used to measure TSYS’ operating results and assess its financial performance, they are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation.
 
TSYS believes that its use of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with the same key financial performance indicators that are utilized by management to assess TSYS’ operating results, evaluate the business and make operational decisions on a prospective, going-forward basis. Hence, management provides disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures to give shareholders and potential investors an opportunity to see TSYS as viewed by management, to assess TSYS with some of the same tools that management utilizes internally and to be able to compare such information with prior periods. TSYS believes that the presentation of GAAP financial measures alone would not provide its shareholders and potential investors with the ability to appropriately analyze its ongoing operational results, and therefore expected future results. TSYS therefore believes that inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional information to help them better understand its financial statements just as management utilizes these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand the business, manage budgets and allocate resources.
