Pitney Bowes Announces Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides products and solutions that power commerce, today reported financial results for the third quarter 2016.

Quarterly Financial Results:
  • Revenue of $839 million, a decline of 4 percent; a decline of 2 percent when adjusted for the impact of currency and market exits.
  • GAAP EPS of $0.35; Adjusted EPS of $0.44.
  • GAAP cash from operations of $137 million; free cash flow of $119 million.
  • Issued $600 million of 5 year notes and is redeeming the Pitney Bowes International Holdings, Inc. preferred stock of $300 million.
  • The Company expects to be at the low-end of its annual guidance range for revenue and adjusted earnings per share.

"We continued to make progress against our strategic initiatives to transform Pitney Bowes," said Marc B. Lautenbach, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our new enterprise business platform, which was deployed in the second quarter, continues to provide operational benefits, while our new products and solutions introduced in the second and third quarter tied to the Pitney Bowes Commerce Cloud are resonating well with our clients and gaining traction.

"In the third quarter, our Global Ecommerce business turned in another strong performance and our Production Mail business delivered a solid equipment sales performance," Lautenbach continued. "While we continue to make progress in building out our partner channel in our Software Solutions business by adding new Regional System Integrators and Location Intelligence partners in the third quarter, license revenue fell short of our expectations. In our Small and Medium Business, equipment sales rebounded after the deployment of our enterprise business platform, but there were some lingering effects that impacted our stream revenues. That said, we are confident that the actions we have put in place in the third quarter will begin to yield better results in the fourth quarter and throughout 2017."

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Revenue totaled $839 million for the quarter, which was a decline of 4 percent versus prior year. Revenue declined 3 percent versus the prior year when adjusted for the impact of currency and declined 2 percent when adjusted for both the impact of currency and previously exited direct operations (market exits) in Mexico, South Africa and five markets in Asia.

Digital Commerce Solutions revenue declined 1 percent on a reported basis and grew 2 percent on a constant currency basis. Double-digit revenue growth in ecommerce marketplace and retail was offset by a decline in Software Solutions and office shipping revenues.

Enterprise Business Solutions revenue grew 1 percent. Revenue grew 2 percent compared to the prior year when adjusted for the impacts of currency and grew 4 percent when adjusted for currency and market exits. Revenue benefited from growth in Production Mail.

Small and Medium Business (SMB) Solutions revenue declined 7 percent. Revenue declined 6 percent when adjusted for the impacts of currency and market exits. SMB equipment sales revenue declined 1 percent globally and also within the North America Mailing segment. The North America Mailing segment's revenue performance improved from last quarter, but is not yet fully back to the stream revenue run-rate established prior to the implementation of the new enterprise business platform. The Company expects stream revenue related to financing fees and supplies to improve from current levels.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles earnings per diluted share (GAAP EPS) were $0.35, which included $0.06 per share for restructuring charges and a $0.03 per share charge from the announced redemption of the preferred stock of the Company's Pitney Bowes International Holdings subsidiary.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations (Adjusted EPS) were $0 .44. The Company uses Adjusted EPS to measure profitability and performance.

Earnings per share were favorably impacted by $0.07 per share, principally related to the resolution of tax examinations, which resulted in a lower tax rate on adjusted earnings this quarter of 21.9 percent. Including the tax benefits this quarter, the annual tax rate on adjusted earnings is expected to be at the low-end of the Company's annual range.

The Company's earnings per share results for the quarter are summarized in the table below:

GAAP Cash from Operations and Free Cash Flow Results

GAAP cash from operations during the quarter was $137 million while free cash flow was $119 million. In comparison to the prior year, free cash flow declined due to timing of accounts payable.

During the quarter, the Company used cash to pay $35 million in dividends to common shareholders, $25 million for the Maponics acquisition and $17 million for restructuring payments.

Debt Management

During the quarter, the Company issued $600 million of 3.375 percent 5-year fixed rate notes. The issuance will be a debt neutral transaction as the Company paid down commercial paper outstanding during the quarter and is redeeming all $300 million of outstanding shares of the Pitney Bowes International Holdings preferred stock on November 1, 2016.

North America Mailing

The revenue decline rate for the quarter was an improvement compared to the second quarter, which was impacted by the enterprise business platform cut-over. Equipment sales declined 1 percent compared to prior year, returning to levels similar to the pre-go-live of the new platform. Recurring revenue streams declined at a high single-digit rate largely driven by lower financing-related fees and supplies revenues. EBIT margin was lower than prior year due to the decline in high margin recurring revenue streams.

International Mailing

Excluding the effects from currency and market exits, revenue declined at a low single-digit rate and equipment sales were flat to prior year. Equipment sales benefited from growth most notably in France, Italy and Japan, but were mostly offset by a decline in the UK. Recurring revenue streams declined largely driven by supplies and rental revenues. EBIT margin was relatively flat versus the prior year. The decline in high-margin recurring revenue streams was offset by lower operating expenses.

Production Mail

Equipment sales grew 27 percent over prior year on higher sorter, inserter and print equipment placements due to a number of larger client installations in the quarter. Support services revenue declined as a result of a continuing trend in the shift from in-house mail production to third party service bureaus who tend to self-service, as well as reduced service revenue associated with the market exits. EBIT margin improved from prior year driven by service delivery cost management initiatives and lower sales and marketing costs.

Presort Services

The average revenue per piece of mail processed declined as a result of the rate change earlier this year and some recently signed lower-margin deals, impacting both revenue and EBIT margin. The segment experienced higher labor costs, which also impacted EBIT margin in the quarter.

Software Solutions

The revenue decline was driven by lower Customer Information Management and Location Intelligence license revenues but benefited by growth in Customer Engagement Software licenses. While the Company continues to make good progress in expanding the indirect channel and training partner sales and technical resources, it will take time before results reflect substantial revenue from partner-led deals. The Company continues to focus on improving direct sales efficiency to grow the license revenue pipeline. EBIT margin declined as a result of the lower licensing revenue.

Global Ecommerce

This quarter represents the first quarter of the Borderfree acquisition fully reported in both periods. Ecommerce marketplace and retail revenues grew 17 percent from prior year excluding the impacts of currency on strong growth in UK outbound. U.S. outbound marketplace grew despite a stronger U.S. dollar versus prior year, as well as some temporary disruption on demand for parcel shipments from the U.S. to Canada prior to the resolution of a Canada Post labor dispute. The revenue growth was partially offset by a decline in domestic office shipping.

EBIT margin increased versus the prior year due to synergy savings and revenue growth. The Company remains on-track to achieve its cross border synergy run-rate objective from the acquisition of Borderfree. This was partially offset by a decline in higher- margin domestic office shipping.

2016 Guidance

This guidance discusses future results, which are inherently subject to unforeseen risks and developments. As such, discussions about the business outlook should be read in the context of an uncertain future, as well as the risk factors identified in the safe harbor language at the end of this release and as more fully outlined in the Company's 2015 Form 10-K Annual Report and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This guidance excludes any unusual items that may occur or additional portfolio or restructuring actions, not specifically identified, as the Company implements plans to further streamline its operations and reduce costs. Revenue guidance is provided on a constant currency basis because the Company cannot reasonably predict the impact future changes in currency exchange rates will have on revenue. Additionally, the Company cannot provide GAAP EPS and GAAP cash from operations guidance due to the uncertainty of future potential restructurings, goodwill and asset write-downs, unusual tax settlements or payments and contributions to its pension funds, acquisitions, divestitures and other potential adjustments, which could (individually or in the aggregate) have a material impact on the Company's performance. The Company's guidance is based on an assumption that the global economy and foreign exchange markets in 2016 will not change significantly.

The Company expects improving trends in the business in the fourth quarter as a result of actions taken to achieve its long term strategic initiatives. These initiatives include the initial benefits of the implementation of the enterprise business platform, new product introductions and continued enhancement of the channel strategy, which will benefit the fourth quarter, with increasing contribution into 2017.

For 2016, the Company expects to be at the low-end of its annual guidance range for revenue and adjusted earnings per share. The Company's guidance for the full year 2016:
  • Revenue, on a constant currency basis, to be in the range of a 1 percent decline to 3 percent decline when compared to 2015.
  • Adjusted EPS to be in the range of $1.75 to $1.82. Adjusted EPS guidance excludes the year-to-date charge of $0.22 per share primarily related to restructuring and asset impairments.
  • Free cash flow to be in the range of $400 million to $450 million.

The Company is hosting its annual Analyst Day on December 6th in New York City. At that time, the Company will provide an update on its strategy.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's financial results are reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP); however, in our disclosures we use certain non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted earnings before interest and taxes, Adjusted EPS, revenue growth on a constant currency basis, revenue excluding the impact of currency and market exits, free cash flow and Segment EBIT.

The Company reports measures such as adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) and Adjusted EPS and adjusted income from continuing operations to exclude the impact of special items like restructuring charges, tax adjustments, goodwill and asset write-downs, and costs related to recent dispositions and market exits. While these are actual Company expenses, they can mask underlying trends associated with its business. Such items are often inconsistent in amount and frequency and as such, the adjustments allow an investor greater insight into the current underlying operating trends of the business.

In addition, revenue growth is presented on a constant currency basis to exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates since the prior period under comparison. Constant currency measures are intended to help investors better understand the underlying operational performance of the business excluding the impacts of shifts in currency exchange rates over the period. Constant currency is calculated by converting our current quarter reported results using the prior year's exchange rate for the comparable quarter. In addition, this quarter the Company reported the comparison of "revenue excluding the impact of currency and market exits" to prior year, which excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates since the prior period and also excludes the revenues associated with the recent market exits in several smaller markets. This comparison allows an investor insight into the underlying revenue performance of the business and true operational performance from a comparable basis to prior period. A reconciliation of reported revenue to constant currency revenue, as well as reported revenue to "revenue excluding the impact of currency and market exits" can be found in the Company's attached financial schedules.

The Company reports free cash flow in order to provide investors insight into the amount of cash that management could have available for other discretionary uses. Free cash flow adjusts GAAP cash from operations for capital expenditures, restructuring payments, unusual tax settlements, contributions to the Company's pension fund and cash used for other special items. A reconciliation of GAAP cash from operations to free cash flow can be found in the Company's attached financial schedules.

In addition, Management uses segment EBIT to measure profitability and performance at the segment level. Segment EBIT is determined by deducting from revenue the related costs and expenses attributable to the segment. Segment EBIT excludes interest, taxes, general corporate expenses not allocated to a particular business segment, restructuring charges and goodwill and asset impairments, which are recognized on a consolidated basis. A reconciliation of Segment EBIT to the Company's total Net Income can be found in the Company's attached financial schedules.

Pitney Bowes has provided a quantitative reconciliation to GAAP in supplemental schedules. This information may also be found at the Company's web site www.pb.com/investorrelations .
