Jack Henry & Associates Ends Second Quarter Fiscal 2018 With 8% Increase In Revenue

PR Newswire (paid press release):

MONETT, Mo., Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry, today announced second quarter fiscal 2018 results. 

Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2017 increased to $374.8 million, an 8% improvement over the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  Operating income increased 8% to $95.3 million. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted December 22, 2017 had a large impact on our provision for income taxes and contributed to the large increase in net income of 165% over the second quarter of fiscal 2017 to $155.6 million, or $2.01 per diluted share.  Excluding the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and other one-time tax adjustments, net income increased 6% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2017.

For the six months ended December 31, 2017, revenue increased 6% to $734.7 million over the same six months of fiscal 2017. Operating income increased 4% to $187.5 million, and net income increased 81% to $219.0 million, or $2.82 per diluted share, with the increase again due mainly to the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Excluding the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and other one-time tax adjustments, net income for the six months ended December 31, 2017 increased 4% and diluted earnings per share increased 5% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2016.

According to David Foss, President and CEO, “We are pleased to report another record second quarter of revenue and operating income which are both in line with our previous guidance.  Our combined sales teams continue to have a solid year by exceeding quotas in Q2 and they’re off to a good start in Q3.  During the quarter, we successfully migrated our first two customers to our new debit/credit card transaction processing platform, and have migrated another two this month.  We continue to see high levels of interest for all of the new solutions that we have recently announced including Banno, Treasury Management, Enterprise Risk Mitigation, and our new payment processing platform.”

  • Deconversion fees in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 increased $2.8 million compared to the second quarter of the prior year.  Excluding deconversion fees from both periods and revenue from fiscal 2018 acquisitions, revenue increased 6%. The increased revenue was driven by growth in our outsourcing and cloud, processing, and product delivery and services revenues. The increase in product delivery and services revenue was due to completion of revised contractual obligations on several long-term contracts that permitted the Company to recognize previously deferred revenue related to our bundled arrangements.
  • For the six months ended December 31, 2017, deconversion fees decreased $3.0 million compared to the prior year-to-date period.  Excluding deconversion fees from both periods and revenue from fiscal 2018 acquisitions, revenue increased 6%, driven by the same factors as the quarter-over-quarter increase.
  • For the second quarter of fiscal 2018, core segment revenue increased 12% to $134.4 million from $119.9 million in the same period a year ago. Payments segment revenue increased 6% to $126.0 million, from $119.1 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from the complementary segment increased 6% to $99.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 from $94.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2017.  Revenue in the corporate and other segment decreased 6% to $14.5 million, compared to $15.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017.
  • For the six months ended December 31, 2017, revenue in the core segment increased 11% to $263.3 million, compared to $236.8 million a year ago. Payments segment revenue increased 3% to $249.2 million, from $241.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2017.  Complementary segment revenue increased 5% to $193.6 million, up from $185.0 million a year ago. Revenue from the corporate and other segment decreased 6% to $28.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2017 from $30.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2016.

Operating Expenses and Operating Income

  • Cost of revenue increased 7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2017, but decreased as a percentage of revenue.  The increased costs were primarily due to increased headcount driving increased salaries and benefits as well as higher direct costs of product, increased professional services spending, costs related to the acquisition during the quarter, costs related to our new card payment processing platform and faster payments initiatives, and increased amortization of capitalized software.
  • For the six months ended December 31, 2017, cost of revenue increased 6% compared to the equivalent period of the prior year, but remained a consistent percentage of revenue. The increased costs were primarily due to higher personnel costs, higher direct costs of product, increased professional services spending, costs related to acquisitions during the first six months, costs related to our new card payment processing platform and faster payments initiatives, and increased amortization of capitalized software.
  • Research and development expense increased for the second quarter and year-to-date period mainly due to increased salary and personnel costs resulting from increased headcount, but remained consistent with the prior year second quarter and year-to-date period as a percentage of total revenue.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 increased 11% over the second quarter of the prior fiscal year due mainly to a combined Jack Henry Annual Conference (JAC) in October 2017, as well as increased commission expense, salaries, and personnel costs. 
  • For the six months ended December 31, 2017, selling, general, and administrative expenses increased 12% compared to the equivalent period of fiscal 2017, but remained a consistent percentage of revenue. The increased spending was mainly due to the JAC in October, as well as increased commissions, salaries, personnel costs, and increased professional service expenses due to contracting with outside experts in preparation for our adoption of the new ASC 606 revenue standard.
  • In the second quarter of fiscal 2018, we recognized a gain related to the sale of our ATM Manager product line of $0.2 million.
  • For the six months ended December 31, 2017, gains on disposals of businesses totaled $1.9 million, due to the ATM Manager gain and the first quarter sale of our jhaDirect product line.

Net Income

Net income for the second quarter and the six months ended December 31, 2017 was significantly impacted by the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

  • Provision for income taxes decreased in the second quarter, with an effective tax rate at (63.5)% of income before income taxes, compared to 33.5% for the same quarter of the prior year.
  • Excluding the impacts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and other one-time tax adjustments (“TCJA and Other”), net income increased 6% for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2017, and diluted earnings per share increased 7%. 
  • Excluding the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and other one-time tax adjustments, net income for the six months ended December 31, 2017 increased 4% and diluted earnings per share increased 5% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2016.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, “Due to the fact that we are not a calendar year end tax payer, our tax rate will fluctuate the remainder of this fiscal year.  With the timing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we will get the benefit for half this fiscal year, which means we will adjust the remainder of the year to create the full year blended effective rate, for both provision for income taxes and adjustments to our deferred tax liability. Below, we continue to show true operations excluding deconversion fees and impact of acquisitions, to allow investors to see clearly our operating performance.”
