NCR Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Results

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) reported financial results today for the three months ended December 31, 2018. Fourth quarter, full year and other recent highlights include:

  • Fourth quarter revenue of $1.80 billion, up 1% as reported; Full year revenue of $6.41 billion, down 2% as reported
  • Fourth quarter GAAP diluted EPS of $(0.39); Fourth quarter non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.84
  • Full year GAAP diluted EPS of $(0.72); Full year non-GAAP diluted EPS of $2.62
  • Fourth quarter services revenue up 2% and gross margin expansion of 250 basis points
  • Full year cash from operations of $572 million and free cash flow of $223 million
  • Completed planned acquisition of JetPay to expand our offerings to include end-to-end payment processing
  • Program to achieve at least $100 million cost savings in 2019 is on track
  • 2019 guidance announced, including return to revenue growth

In 2018 we made progress in our efforts to build a stronger and more efficient NCR and our fourth quarter results were indicative of the early success as we continue to improve our execution and stabilize our business, said Michael Hayford, President and Chief Executive Officer. Our work to simplify and stream line NCR is delivering results. During the fourth quarter, we achieved a significant ramp-up in hardware production, which demonstrates our success restructuring our manufacturing network. In addition, our Services business continues to generate improved margin performance through the ongoing implementation of our transformation initiatives.

Mr. Hayford concluded, Looking ahead, we enter 2019 with positive momentum and a commitment to return to growth by investing in our future while also reducing our cost structure. We are elevating our investment in digital-focused strategic growth platforms as we look to accelerate our mix shift to recurring software and services revenues. These investments will be supported by the addition of JetPay, which gives us an end-to-end payments platform and unlocks incremental recurring revenue streams. We are confident the further execution of our strategy will deliver competitive differentiation to our customers, strengthen our long-term growth profile and drive increased value creation for our stockholders.

In this release, we use certain non-GAAP measures, including presenting certain measures on a constant currency basis. These non-GAAP measures include free cash flow and others with the words non-GAAP, or constant currency in their titles. These non-GAAP measures are listed, described, and reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures under the heading Non-GAAP Financial Measures later in this release.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Operating Results

Revenue Fourth quarter revenue of $1.80 billion was up 1% year-over-year. Foreign currency fluctuations had an unfavorable impact on the revenue comparison of 2%.

The following table shows the revenue by segment for the fourth quarter:

$ in millions     Q4 2018     Q4 2017     % Change    

% Change Constant Currency

Software License $ 90 $ 95 (5 %) (4 %)
Software Maintenance 90 96 (6 %) (5 %)
Cloud 163 156 4 % 5 %
Professional Services   159   161 (1 %) 1 %
Software Revenue $ 502 $ 508 (1 %) %
 
Services Revenue $ 633 $ 619 2 % 5 %
 
ATM $ 367 $ 303 21 % 26 %
SCO 110 131 (16 %) (16 %)
POS 189 218 (13 %) (12 %)
IPS     3 (100 %) (100 %)
Hardware Revenue $ 666 $ 655 2 % 4 %
   
Total Revenue $ 1,801 $ 1,782 1 % 3 %
 

Software revenue was flat on a constant currency basis driven by lower software license and software maintenance, partially offset by growth in cloud revenue.

Services revenue was up 5% on a constant currency basis driven by continued momentum in managed service offerings and implementation services.

Hardware revenue was up 4% on a constant currency basis. ATM revenue increased 26% on a constant currency basis primarily due to higher backlog conversion as we significantly ramped production. SCO revenue decreased 16% on a constant currency basis due to the timing of customer roll-outs. POS revenue decreased 12% on a constant currency basis in the quarter compared to growth of 20% on a constant currency basis in the prior year, which benefited from several large customer wins.

Gross Margin Fourth quarter gross margin of $442 million decreased from $510 million in the prior year period. Gross margin rate was 24.5%, down from 28.6%. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to higher operating costs in the Hardware segment as well as restructuring and transformation charges of $48 million incurred during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Fourth quarter gross margin (non-GAAP) of $495 million decreased from $523 million in the prior year period. Gross margin rate (non-GAAP) was 27.5%, down from 29.3%. The decrease in gross margin (non-GAAP) was primarily due to higher operating costs in the Hardware segment.

Expenses Fourth quarter operating expenses of $379 million increased from $308 million in the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to restructuring and transformation expenses of $77 million incurred during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Fourth quarter operating expenses (non-GAAP) of $281 million decreased from $287 million in the prior period. The decrease in operating expenses (non-GAAP) was due to cost reduction benefits realized, partially offset by higher employee-related expenses.

Operating Income Fourth quarter income from operations of $63 million decreased from $202 million in the prior year period. Income from operations reflected restructuring and transformation expenses of $125 million incurred during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Fourth quarter operating income (non-GAAP) of $214 million decreased from $236 million in the prior period. Operating income (non-GAAP) reflected lower profit in the Hardware segment and higher employee related expenses.

Other (Expense) Fourth quarter other (expense) of $3 million decreased from $71 million in the prior period. The pension mark to market adjustment was income of $45 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to expense of $28 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Fourth quarter other (expense) (non-GAAP) of $48 million increased from $43 million compared to the prior year period due to higher interest expense.

Income Tax Expense (Benefit) Fourth quarter income tax expense of $93 million decreased from $164 million in the prior year period. The fourth quarter effective income tax rate was 155% compared to 125% in the prior year period. Income tax decreased primarily due to lower income before taxes in the quarter and the impact of U.S. tax reform.

Fourth quarter income tax expense (non-GAAP) of $40 million decreased from $49 million in the prior year period. The fourth quarter effective income tax rate (non-GAAP) was 24% compared to 25% in the prior year period. Income tax (non-GAAP) decreased primarily due to lower income before taxes in the quarter.

Net Loss from Continuing Operations Attributable to NCR Fourth quarter net loss from continuing operations attributable to NCR of $33 million increased from net loss from continuing operations of $35 million in the prior year period. Fourth quarter net income from continuing operations attributable to NCR (non-GAAP) of $126 million decreased from $142 million in the prior year period.

Cash Flow Fourth quarter cash provided by operating activities of $409 million decreased from cash provided by operating activities of $482 million in the prior year period. Free cash flow was $317 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 as compared to $400 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The decreases were due to lower earnings in the fourth quarter of 2018 and higher inventory as a result of the hardware initiatives.

Full Year 2018 Operating Results

Full year 2018 revenue of $6.41 billion was down 2% from 2017. Foreign currency fluctuations did not have an impact on the full year revenue comparison.

Full year 2018 GAAP diluted EPS of $(0.72) was down from $1.01 in 2017. Full year 2018 diluted EPS (non-GAAP) of $2.62 was down from $3.20 in 2017.

Full year cash provided by operating activities was $572 million and full year free cash flow was $223 million.

Restructuring and Transformation Initiatives

Our previously announced restructuring and transformation initiatives continue to progress on track. In Services, our performance and profit improvement program continues to deliver revenue growth and margin expansion. In Hardware, we are continuing the move to a more variable cost structure by reducing the number of manufacturing plants and ramping up production with contract manufacturers.

In order to focus the organization on the strategic growth areas, in the fourth quarter of 2018, we announced a spend optimization program to drive cost savings through operational efficiencies to generate at least $100 million of savings in 2019. These initiatives will create efficiencies in our corporate functions, reduce spend in the non-strategic areas and limit discretionary spending. We incurred a pre-tax charge of $64 million during the fourth quarter of 2018 and expect to incur an additional $30 million in 2019 for a total pre-tax charge of approximately $94 million. The cash impact of this program was $19 million during the fourth quarter of 2018 and is expected to be an additional $40 million to $50 million in 2019 for a total cash impact of approximately $60 million to $70 million.

Full Year 2019 Outlook

In 2019, our revenue growth is expected to be approximately 1% to 2%. Our GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance is expected to be $1.91 to $2.01, and our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance is expected to be $2.75 to $2.85. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance assumes an effective tax rate of 23% to 24% for 2019 compared to 19% in 2018. We expect net income attributable to NCR to be $290 million to $305 million and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) to be $1.04 billion to $1.08 billion. Additionally, we expect cash flow from operations to be $705 million to $730 million and free cash flow to be $300 million to $350 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP Financial Measures. While NCR reports its results in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States, or GAAP, in this release NCR also uses the non-GAAP measures listed and described below.

Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS), Gross Margin (non-GAAP), Gross Margin Rate (non-GAAP), Operating Expenses (non-GAAP), Operating Income (non-GAAP), Operating Margin Rate (non-GAAP), Other (Expense) (non-GAAP), Income Tax Expense (non-GAAP), Effective Income Tax Rate (non-GAAP), and Net Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to NCR (non-GAAP). NCRs non-GAAP diluted EPS, gross margin (non-GAAP), gross margin rate (non-GAAP), operating expenses (non-GAAP), operating income (non-GAAP), operating margin rate (non-GAAP), other (expense) (non-GAAP), income tax expense (non-GAAP), effective income tax rate (non-GAAP), and net income from continuing operations attributable to NCR (non-GAAP) are determined by excluding, as applicable, pension mark-to-market adjustments, pension settlements, pension curtailments and pension special termination benefits and other special items, including amortization of acquisition related intangibles, from NCRs GAAP earnings per share, gross margin, gross margin rate, expenses, income from operations, operating margin rate, other (expense), income tax expense, effective income tax rate and net income from continuing operations attributable to NCR, respectively. Due to the non-operational nature of these pension and other special items, NCRs management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate year-over-year operating performance. NCR also uses operating income (non-GAAP) and diluted EPS (non-GAAP), to manage and determine the effectiveness of its business managers and as a basis for incentive compensation. NCR believes these measures are useful for investors because they provide a more complete understanding of NCRs underlying operational performance, as well as consistency and comparability with NCRs past reports of financial results.

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) NCR believes that Adjusted EBITDA (adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of the strength and performance of the Companys ongoing business operations, including its ability to fund discretionary spending such as capital expenditures, strategic acquisitions and other investments. NCR determines Adjusted EBITDA for a given period based on its GAAP net income attributable to NCR plus interest expense, net; plus income tax expense (benefit); plus depreciation and amortization; plus other income (expense); plus pension mark-to-market adjustments, pension settlements, pension curtailments and pension special termination benefits and other special items, including amortization of acquisition related intangibles.

Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow as a Percentage of Non-GAAP Net Income (or Free Cash Flow Conversion Rate). NCR defines free cash flow as net cash provided by/used in operating activities and cash flow provided by/used in discontinued operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, additions to capitalized software, discretionary pension contributions and pension settlements. NCRs management uses free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the Company and believes it is useful for investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the Company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash generated after capital expenditures, which can be used for, among other things, investment in the Companys existing businesses, strategic acquisitions, strengthening the Companys balance sheet, repurchase of Company stock and repayment of the Companys debt obligations. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since there may be other nondiscretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. NCR also describes the ratio of free cash flow to non-GAAP net income (or free cash flow conversion rate), which is calculated as free cash flow divided by non-GAAP net income. NCRs management targets an annual free cash flow conversion rate at or above the range described in this release because management believes that a conversion rate at or above that range represents the efficient conversion of non-GAAP net income to free cash flow for its business. Free cash flow and free cash flow conversion rate do not have uniform definitions under GAAP and, therefore, NCRs definitions may differ from other companies definitions of these measures.

Constant Currency. NCR presents certain financial measures, such as period-over-period revenue growth, on a constant currency basis, which excludes the effects of foreign currency translation by translating prior period results at current period monthly average exchange rates. Due to the overall variability of foreign exchange rates from period to period, NCRs management uses constant currency measures to evaluate period-over-period operating performance on a more consistent and comparable basis. NCRs management believes that presentation of financial measures without this result is more representative of the companys period-over-period operating performance, and provides additional insight into historical and/or future performance, which may be helpful for investors.

NCRs definitions and calculations of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly-titled measures reported by other companies and cannot, therefore, be compared with similarly-titled measures of other companies. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered as substitutes for, or superior to, results determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables below.

(1)   Non-GAAP diluted EPS is determined using the conversion of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock into common stock in the calculation of weighted average diluted shares outstanding. GAAP EPS is determined using the most dilutive measure, either including the impact of dividends or deemed dividends on the Companys Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in the calculation of net income or loss available to common stockholders or including the impact of the conversion of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock into common stock in the calculation of the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Therefore, GAAP diluted EPS and non-GAAP diluted EPS may not mathematically reconcile.
(2) Except for the adjustments noted herein, this guidance does not include the effects of any future acquisitions/divestitures, pension mark-to-market adjustments, taxes or other events, which are difficult to predict and may or may not be significant.
