Sloan concluded, “Our differentiated strategies have enabled the compounded rates of growth we realized in the quarter and are now forecasting for the full year compared to 2019 levels. We continue to balance strategic investments across our businesses, unique relationships with the world’s largest technology companies, ongoing consistency in execution and efficient return of capital to shareholders.”

Business Update

“We could not be more pleased with the momentum across our businesses evident in our results and outlook for the year, highlighted by the strength in our merchant solutions segment. In particular, our integrated business grew 53% this quarter, and our acquiring businesses globally generated 46% growth despite the pandemic recovery lagging in many markets outside of the United States. We also are delighted by the strong sequential and year-over-year growth in our vertical markets businesses,” said Cameron Bready, President and Chief Operating Officer.

2021 Outlook

“We are pleased with our performance in the second quarter, which demonstrated continued sequential improvement that has continued in July,” said Paul Todd, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “We achieved strong adjusted net revenue growth, adjusted operating margin expansion and adjusted earnings per share growth, well ahead of our expectations.

“We remain encouraged by the trends we are seeing in our business and are again raising our expectations for full year 2021 adjusted net revenue to be in the range of $7.70 billion to $7.73 billion, reflecting growth of 14% to 15%, and we are increasing our adjusted earnings per share estimate to be in a range of $8.07 to $8.20, or growth of 26% to 28% over 2020. This outlook presumes we remain on a path toward recovery worldwide over the balance of the year.”

Todd concluded, “We also continue to execute on our strategic priorities of balancing reinvestment in the future growth of our business with efficient return of capital. To that end, we are excited with our announcement regarding Bankia, the successful closing of our acquisition of Zego and that our Board of Directors has approved an increase to our share repurchase authorization to $1.5 billion.”

___________________________________

 (1)

Represents adjustments to revenues for gross-up related payments (included in operating expenses) associated with certain lines of business to reflect economic benefits to the company. For the three months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020, includes $1.3 million and $2.7 million, respectively, to eliminate the effect of acquisition accounting fair value adjustments for software-related contract liabilities associated with acquired businesses.  

 

 

 (2)

For the three months ended June 30, 2021, earnings adjustments to operating income included $324.7 million in cost of services (COS) and $121.6 million in selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A). Adjustments to COS represent amortization of acquired intangibles of $324.7 million. Adjustments to SG&A include share-based compensation expense of $43.3 million and acquisition and integration expenses of $78.3 million. Net income attributable to Global Payments also reflects the removal of $23.8 million of equity method investment earnings from our interest in a private equity investment fund.

 

 

 

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, earnings adjustments to operating income included $328.3 million in COS and $123.6 million in SG&A expenses. Adjustments to COS represent amortization of acquired intangibles of $314.4 million, $2.9 million of acquisition and integration expenses and $11.0 million of other items. Adjustments to SG&A include share-based compensation expense of $35.0 million, acquisition and integration expenses of $82.2 million and other items of $6.4 million. Other COS and SG&A items include employee termination benefits and other incremental charges directly related to COVID-19. Net income attributable to Global Payments also reflects the removal of a $2.0 million loss associated with the partial sale of an ownership position in a strategic partner.

 

 

 (3)

Income taxes on adjustments reflect the tax effect of earnings adjustments to income before income taxes. The tax rate used in determining the tax impact of earnings adjustments is either the jurisdictional statutory rate in effect at the time of the adjustment or the jurisdictional expected annual effective tax rate for the period, depending on the nature and timing of the adjustment.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Global Payments supplements revenues, income, operating income, operating margin and EPS determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP by providing these measures with certain adjustments (such measures being non-GAAP financial measures) in this document to assist with evaluating our performance. In addition to GAAP measures, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to focus on the factors the company believes are pertinent to the daily management of our operations. Management believes adjusted net revenue more closely reflects the economic benefits to the company’s core business and allows for better comparisons with industry peers. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, together with other metrics, to set goals for and measure the performance of the business and to determine incentive compensation. Adjusted net revenue, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS should be considered in addition to, and not as substitutes for, revenues, operating income, net income and EPS determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures reflect management’s judgment of particular items, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Adjusted net revenue excludes gross-up related payments associated with certain lines of business to reflect economic benefits to the company. On a GAAP basis, these payments are presented gross in both revenues and operating expenses. Adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS exclude acquisition-related amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration expense and certain other items, such as unusual, direct and discrete costs due to the global pandemic, specific to each reporting period as more fully described in the accompanying reconciliations in Schedules 6 and 7. Adjusted operating margin is derived by dividing adjusted operating income by adjusted net revenue. The tax rate used in determining the income tax impact of earnings adjustments is either the jurisdictional statutory rate in effect at the time of the adjustment or the jurisdictional expected annual effective tax rate for the period, depending on the nature and timing of the adjustment.
