  • Money transfer revenue increased 12 percent over the prior year to $1,287.8 million, both on a reported and constant currency basis.

"2013 was a great year for MoneyGram. We exceeded the outlook we set at the beginning of the year and achieved double-digit money transfer transaction and constant currency revenue growth. We celebrated a key network milestone as we added our 200th country, and we completed four acquisitions accelerating our self-service channel growth," said Pamela H. Patsley, MoneyGram chairman and chief executive officer. "Our top-line money transfer growth along with interest savings related to our debt refinancing led to outstanding cash generation. Agents and consumers rely on MoneyGram for innovative solutions, and we are investing to ensure we remain the brand of choice in the large and growing remittance industry."

Balance Sheet Items and Adjusted Free Cash Flow Items

MoneyGram ended the quarter with assets in excess of payment service obligations of $318.8 million and outstanding debt principal of $843.6 million. Interest expense was $10.0 million in the quarter, down $7.7 million from the prior year. For the full year, interest expense was $47.3 million, down $23.6 million from the prior year. Adjusted free cash flow for the quarter was down 10 percent to $21.7 million as a result of increased signing bonus payments made in the quarter. Fourth quarter capital expenditures were $11.6 million and signing bonus payments were $26.0 million. Cash taxes in the quarter were $7.8 million. Adjusted free cash flow for the year was up 29 percent to $149.8 million.

Global Transformation Program

MoneyGram today separately announced several changes to better support the Company’s corporate objectives, including its goal of reaching $2 billion in annual revenue in 2017. These actions include realigning the organizational structure and commencing a global transformation program designed to help MoneyGram lead the industry in compliance, fuel multi-channel growth and improve its cost structure. These initiatives are:
  • Enhancing compliance. The legal and regulatory requirements for the financial services industry continue to increase. Since 2009, MoneyGram has invested more than $120 million in its compliance and anti-fraud programs and has successfully prevented more than $365 million in fraud losses, with $135 million prevented in 2013. The Company will continue to advance its leadership in global compliance by implementing market-leading systems, technology and processes, and increasing agent oversight around the world. This program now incorporates an accelerated timeline and certain additional enhancements which were recommended by the monitor. At this time, the Company expects to incur cash outlays of approximately $80 to $90 million over the next three years.
  • Investing for growth. MoneyGram is accelerating investment in its market-leading self-service products with the goal of generating 15 to 20 percent of money transfer revenue from these channels in 2017.
  • Reorganization and restructuring. MoneyGram will commence a reorganization and restructuring initiative to enhance operating efficiencies and reduce the Company’s cost structure. At this time, the Company anticipates that the initiative will result in annual pre-tax cost savings of approximately $15 million to $20 million on a run-rate basis exiting 2015, resulting from expense reductions and the realignment of certain business functions. The Company currently estimates that it will incur cash outlays over the next two years of approximately $30 million to $40 million in connection with these actions.

“The launch of our global transformation program will position MoneyGram to lead the industry in compliance and in combating fraud. The global transformation program will also enable us to invest for growth and improve our cost structure. We are energized and committed to achieving our goal of $2 billion in annual revenue in 2017, with 15 to 20 percent of money transfer revenue generated from self-service products. Our investments today will lead to an even more nimble, innovative and cost efficient MoneyGram in 2017,” said Patsley. “We have positioned our self-service business to capitalize on the strength of our brand and network, and the timing is right to increase our focus on these products. We remain committed to outpacing the industry for years to come.”

Outlook

For 2014 the Company estimates total constant currency revenue growth of 8 to 10 percent. Constant currency adjusted EBITDA growth is estimated to be 7 to 9 percent. Direct monitor costs will be adjusted in 2014 to provide investors with clear operating metrics. If direct monitor costs had been adjusted in 2013, the comparable estimated adjusted constant currency EBITDA growth for 2014 would be 5 to 7 percent.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, including agent signing bonus amortization), Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA adjusted for significant items), Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted Free Cash Flow (Adjusted EBITDA less cash interest expense, cash tax expense, cash payments for capital expenditures and agent signing bonuses), and constant currency measures. In addition, we also present Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Margin for our two reporting segments. The following tables include a full reconciliation of actual non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP financial measures. The equivalent GAAP financial measures for projected results are not provided as we are not able to predict results inclusive of currency changes.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations, including our ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures, acquisitions and operations. These calculations are commonly used as a basis for investors, analysts and credit rating agencies to evaluate and compare the operating performance and value of companies within our industry. Finally, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, and constant currency figures are financial measures used by management in reviewing results of operations, forecasting, assessing cash flow and capital, allocating resources or establishing employee incentive programs. Although MoneyGram believes the above non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an exclusive alternative to accompanying GAAP financial measures.
