DFIN Reports Third-Quarter 2023 Results


CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelley Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: DFIN) (the "Company" or "DFIN") today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2023.

Highlights:

(a) Organic net sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, gross leverage and net leverage are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items noted in the reconciliation tables below. The tables below provide reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures.

"We are pleased with our consolidated results for the third quarter, as we continued to execute our strategy to expand the adoption of our recurring regulatory and compliance offerings to drive more predictable performance. Total software solutions net sales increased 5.3%, or 6.8% on an organic basis, compared to the third quarter of 2022, similar to the growth rate we achieved in the second quarter of this year. Net sales of our recurring compliance software platform, which includes ActiveDisclosure and Arc Suite, increased by approximately 8% in aggregate, led by approximately 13% growth in Arc Suite net sales. Venue net sales grew nearly 9% in the third quarter and continued to deliver a much more consistent level of performance compared to the market for its primary use case, M&A" said Daniel N. Leib, DFIN's president and chief executive officer.

Leib continued, "Adjusted EBITDA increased by $4.1 million, or 9.1%, and Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 27.4%, approximately 340 basis points higher than last year's third quarter, despite continued softness in our transactional revenue as the market, while improved versus recent trend, remained weak. Our continued strong margin performance reflects the combination of our ongoing migration to a more favorable sales mix, permanent reductions to our cost structure and operating efficiencies, all of which enable DFIN to sustainably operate at a higher level of profitability across various market cycles."

"Moving forward, our focus remains on investing to drive profitable, recurring revenue growth, including capturing opportunities from recurring compliance use cases such as Tailored Shareholder Reports. In mid-October, we launched the initial release of our Tailored Shareholder Reports' SaaS product, providing investment company clients an end-to-end financial reporting solution. In addition to this opportunity, the combination of our leading compliance software platform and deep domain service expertise positions DFIN well to capture recurring revenue opportunities from current and future regulations," Leib concluded.

Net Sales

Net sales in the third quarter of 2023 were $180.0 million, a decrease of $8.7 million, or 4.6% (a decrease of 4.2% on an organic basis), from the third quarter of 2022. Net sales decreased primarily due to lower capital markets transactional volumes, which decreased approximately $8.8 million year-over-year, lower capital markets compliance revenue and the impact of the EdgarOnline disposition, partially offset by higher software solutions net sales in Arc Suite, Venue and ActiveDisclosure.

Net Earnings

For the third quarter of 2023, net earnings were $18.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, as compared to $19.2 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2022. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2023 included after-tax charges of $3.6 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, primarily related to share-based compensation expense. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2022 included after-tax charges of $4.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, primarily related to share-based compensation expense and restructuring, impairment and other charges, net.

Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Earnings

For the third quarter of 2023, Adjusted EBITDA was $49.4 million, an increase of $4.1 million as compared to the third quarter of 2022. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 27.4%, an increase of approximately 340 basis points as compared to the third quarter of 2022. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to the impact of cost control initiatives, price uplifts and lower selling expense as a result of the decrease in sales volume, partially offset by lower Capital Markets - Compliance and Communications Management segment net sales and incremental investments to accelerate the Company's transformation.

For the third quarter of 2023, non-GAAP net earnings were $21.7 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, as compared to $23.7 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2022.

Reconciliations of net sales to organic net sales, net earnings to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP net earnings are presented in the tables.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

This news release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings, adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, Free Cash Flow and organic net sales. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, provide useful information about the Company's operating results and liquidity and enhance the overall ability to assess the Company's financial performance. The Company uses these measures, together with other measures of performance under GAAP, to compare the relative performance of operations in planning, budgeting and reviewing the performance of its business.

The Company's non-GAAP statement of operations measures, which include non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A, adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings and adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, are adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operations. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of expenses associated with the Company's non-income tax, net, accelerated rent expense, share-based compensation and eliminate potential differences in results of operations between periods caused by factors such as historic cost and age of assets, financing and capital structures, taxation positions or regimes, restructuring, impairment and other charges, net and gain or loss on certain investments, business sales and asset sales.

Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as net cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. By adjusting for the level of capital investment in operations, the Company believes that free cash flow can provide useful additional basis for understanding the Company's ability to generate cash after capital investment and provides a comparison to peers with differing capital intensity.

Organic net sales is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as reported net sales adjusted for the changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of dispositions.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures are defined differently by different companies in our industry and, accordingly, such measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.

Use of Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of, and subject to the safe harbor created by, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with respect to the business, strategy and plans of DFIN and its expectations relating to future financial condition and performance. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about DFIN management's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Words such as "believes," "anticipates," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "aims," "potential," "will," "would," "could," "considered," "likely," "estimate" and variations of these words and similar future or conditional expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. While DFIN believes these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond DFIN's control. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon future circumstances that may or may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from DFIN's current expectations depending upon a number of factors affecting the business and risks associated with the performance of the business. These factors include such risks and uncertainties detailed in DFIN periodic public filings with the SEC, including but not limited to those discussed under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" and in Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors of DFIN's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, those discussed under "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" in DFIN's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in other investor communications of DFIN's from time to time. DFIN does not undertake to and specifically declines any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect future events or circumstances after the date of such statement or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

The Company has a $300.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility"). The Revolving Facility is subject to a number of covenants, including a minimum Interest Coverage Ratio and a maximum Consolidated Net Leverage Ratio, both as defined and calculated in the credit agreement. As of September 30, 2023, there were $41.5 million of borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Facility as well as $2.5 million in outstanding letters of credit and bank guarantees, of which $1.0 million of the outstanding letters of credit reduced the availability under the Revolving Facility. Based on the Company's results of operations for the twelve months ended September 30, 2023 and existing debt, the Company would have had the ability to utilize the remaining $257.5 million of the $300.0 million Revolving Facility and not have been in violation of the terms of the Revolving Facility agreement.
