MoneyGram International Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Money Transfer Constant Currency Revenue Growth Accelerates to 14%

DALLAS, Oct. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MoneyGram (Nasdaq:MGI), a leading global money transfer and payment services company, reported financial results for the third quarter, which ended September 30, 2013. Total revenue of $383.0 million increased 13 percent on a reported basis and 12 percent in constant currency.

  • 20 percent growth in U.S. outbound sends
  • 14 percent growth in sends originated outside of the U.S.
  • 8 percent growth in U.S.-to-U.S. transactions.
  • $3.7 million of stock-based and contingent performance compensation
  • $0.2 million of legal expenses related to certain ongoing matters.

"Money transfer revenue and transaction growth accelerated from an already strong first half of the year. Our dedication to offering consumers trusted and convenient services through quality agents and innovative products continues to fuel our momentum. This was our tenth consecutive quarter of double-digit constant currency money transfer revenue growth," said Pamela H. Patsley, chairman and chief executive officer at MoneyGram. "Our solid top-line growth paired with tight expense management enabled us to deliver accelerated free cash flow, which funded investments in products and acquisitions that position the company for future growth."

Balance Sheet and Free Cash Flow Items

MoneyGram ended the quarter with assets in excess of payment service obligations of $309.7 million and outstanding debt principal of $845.7 million. Interest expense was $10.0 million in the quarter, down $7.7 million from the prior year as a result of debt refinancing activities. Free cash flow for the quarter was $47.3 million, up 92 percent from $24.6 million in the prior year quarter due to strong growth in revenue and EBITDA, lower agent signing bonuses and lower debt interest payments.

Market Developments

"I am proud that MoneyGram is spearheading this important consumer education initiative. Nothing angers us more than when people attempt to use our services or those of other financial service providers to engage in illegal activities. Millions of consumers rely on financial services for their daily needs, and raising awareness of common fraud scams helps protect consumers and creates a safer and stronger industry as a whole. Our commitment to the Scam Awareness Alliance is evidence of MoneyGram's industry leadership in consumer education. We invite you to learn more at www.scamawareness.org," said Pamela H. Patsley, chairman and chief executive officer of MoneyGram.

Global Funds Transfer Segment Results

Total revenue for the Global Funds Transfer segment was $359.5 million, up 13 percent from $317.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. The segment reported operating income of $40.6 million and operating margin of 11.3 percent. Adjusted operating margin was 12.0 percent in the quarter, down from 14.2 percent in the prior year primarily as a result of an increase in commission and compliance expenses.

During the quarter, money transfer transaction volume increased 14 percent, continuing the Company's double-digit growth trend. Money transfer revenue was $333.7 million, up 15 percent on a reported basis from $291.4 million in the third quarter of 2012.

U.S. outbound money transfer transactions increased 20 percent for the quarter led by U.S.-to-Mexico growth of 34 percent. Transactions originating outside of the U.S. increased a robust 14 percent over the prior year and U.S.-to-U.S. money transfer transaction volume increased 8 percent over the prior year.

Bill payment transaction volume decreased 1 percent, while revenue decreased 3 percent to $25.8 million from $26.5 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Financial Paper Products Segment Results

Total revenue in the Financial Paper Products segment increased 15 percent to $23.3 million in the quarter, up from $20.3 million in the prior year quarter. Operating income was $10.5 million, up from $7.5 million in the third quarter of 2012. Operating margin was 45.1 percent. Adjusted operating margin was 46.4 percent in the quarter, up from 39.4 percent in the same period last year driven by higher investment revenue. 

Outlook

For fiscal year 2013, management is estimating that the Company will be at the high end of both constant currency revenue growth of 7 percent to 10 percent and constant currency adjusted EBITDA growth of 3 percent to 6 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 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 these non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP financial measures.

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, 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.
