Western Union Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results

Third quarter GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $0.45, adjusted EPS of $0.42; 21.3% GAAP operating margin, 20.6% adjusted operating margin

“Evolve 2025” strategy starts to take root: new digital U.S. outbound customer growth accelerates 26% in September

Reaffirms 2022 Financial Outlook

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2022-- The Western Union Company (NYSE: WU) today reported third quarter 2022 financial results and reaffirmed its full year financial outlook.

The Company’s third quarter revenue of $1.1 billion declined 15% on a reported basis, or 6% on a constant currency basis excluding the contribution from Business Solutions, compared to the prior year period. The suspension of operations in Russia and Belarus negatively impacted revenue by approximately three percentage points, while Argentina inflation benefited revenue by approximately one percentage point.

GAAP EPS in the third quarter was $0.45, compared to $0.57 in the prior year period. The year-over-year decrease in GAAP EPS was primarily due to lower operating profit, partially offset by a lower effective GAAP tax rate and lower share count.

Adjusted EPS in the third quarter was $0.42, compared to $0.63 in the prior year period. The year-over-year decline in adjusted EPS was driven by lower operating profit and a higher adjusted effective tax rate, partially offset by lower share count. For a full reconciliation between GAAP and Adjusted metrics, please see the “Non-GAAP Measures” section of this press release.

In the prior year period, Business Solutions contributed approximately $0.09 to GAAP and adjusted EPS, while operations in Russia and Belarus contributed approximately $0.06 to GAAP and adjusted EPS.

“While third quarter performance was in-line with our prior outlook, it remains below our expectations for longer term results. We remain on track to meet our full year financial outlook,” said Devin McGranahan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Western Union.

McGranahan added, “As a company, we remain focused on execution of our ‘Evolve 2025’ strategy that we shared at Investor Day. While our digital business slowed and performed below our longer-term expectations in the quarter, we were pleased with early positive results of our revised marketing strategy as U.S. outbound new digital customer acquisition accelerated to double-digit growth in the month of September.”

Interim Chief Financial Officer Matt Cagwin stated, “Europe and CIS continued to be the largest drag on results as the epicenter of the conflict in Ukraine. In North America, we saw quarterly sequential improvement in transactions and new customers driven by our enhanced marketing program, while our business in Latin America and Caribbean continued to perform solidly in the quarter.”

Q3 Business Highlights

  • C2C revenues declined 11% on a reported basis, or 8% constant currency, while transactions declined 12% compared to the prior year period. The suspension of operations in Russia and Belarus negatively impacted C2C revenue and transactions by 3% and 9%, respectively. Regionally, transaction declines in Europe and CIS, North America, APAC, and MEASA were partially offset by transaction growth in LACA.
  • Digital money transfer revenues declined 12% on a reported basis, or 9% constant currency, while transactions declined 20%. Digital money transfer represented 24% and 34% of total C2C revenues and transactions, respectively. The suspension of operations in Russia and Belarus negatively impacted digital money transfer revenue and transactions by 7% and 22%, respectively.
  • Branded Digital revenue declined 8% on a reported basis, or 5% constant currency on transaction declines of 1%. The suspension of operations in Russia and Belarus negatively impacted both Branded Digital revenue and transactions by 2% in the quarter.

Q3 Financial Highlights

  • GAAP operating margin in the quarter was 21.3%, compared to 24.8% in the prior year period. The adjusted operating margin was 20.6% compared to 25.2% in the prior year period, with the prior year positively impacted by 90 basis points from the inclusion of Business Solutions. The decrease in the adjusted operating margin in the quarter was primarily due to lower revenue and increased strategic investments in technology and marketing.
  • The GAAP effective tax rate in the quarter was 10.2%, compared to 20.2% in the prior year period, and the decrease was primarily due to changes in discrete tax items offset by the sale of Business Solutions and the Company's decision to suspend its operations in Russia and Belarus. The adjusted effective tax rate was 15.5% in the quarter, compared to 13.7% in the prior year period, primarily due to an increase in the proportion of higher taxed earnings and the effects of changes in U.S. tax rules.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $522 million year-to-date. The Company returned $450 million to shareholders year-to-date, consisting of $273 million in dividends and $177 million of share repurchases.

2022 Outlook

Today, the Company reaffirmed its full year 2022 financial outlook provided on August 3, 2022. The outlook assumes current macroeconomic conditions will continue for the remainder of the year.

During the third quarter, the Company agreed with Goldfinch Partners LLC and The Baupost Group LLC to complete the divestiture of Business Solutions in three closings instead of two, the first of which occurred on March 1, 2022. GAAP figures reflect an expected partial year of Business Solutions ownership, including contractual payments to the buyers, representing profits between the first and third closings, associated divestiture and acquisition costs, exit costs, and an estimated pre-tax gain of approximately $274 million of which $151 million was recognized year-to-date. The second closing, which includes the United Kingdom operations, is currently expected to occur in December 2022, pending required regulatory approvals, and which will result in a pre-tax gain of approximately $93 million, subject to regulatory capital adjustments. The third closing, which includes the European Union operations, is currently expected to occur in the first quarter of 2023, pending required regulatory approvals, at which time the remainder of the gain will be recognized, subject to regulatory capital adjustments.

Adjusted revenue growth and operating margin exclude contributions from Business Solutions. In addition, adjusted operating margin excludes associated divestiture and acquisition costs, Business Solutions exit costs, and costs related to the exit from Russia and Belarus. The adjusted effective tax rate and EPS exclude the expected gain on sale of Business Solutions, acquisition and divestiture costs, Business Solutions exit costs, exit costs from Russia and Belarus, and the reversal of uncertain tax positions.

The 2022 outlook is as follows:

Revenue

GAAP : approximately -11% to -13%

Adjusted (constant currency, excluding the impact of Argentina inflation and proforma for the planned sale of Business Solutions) : mid-single digit decline

Operating Profit Margin

GAAP and Adjusted: a range of 20% to 21%

Effective Tax Rate

GAAP: approximately 20%

Adjusted: mid-teens range

EPS

GAAP : $2.18 - $2.28

Adjusted : $1.75 - $1.85

Non-GAAP Measures

Western Union presents a number of non-GAAP financial measures because management believes that these metrics provide meaningful supplemental information in addition to the GAAP metrics and provide comparability and consistency to prior periods. Constant currency results assume foreign revenues are translated from foreign currencies to the U.S. dollar, net of the effect of foreign currency hedges, at rates consistent with those in the prior year.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP to comparable GAAP measures are available in the accompanying schedules and in the “Investor Relations” section of the Company’s website at https://ir.westernunion.com.

Adjusted constant currency revenue growth metrics for 2022 exclude contributions from Business Solutions. Adjusted operating profit metrics for 2022 exclude contributions from Business Solutions, acquisition and divestiture costs, Russia and Belarus exit costs, and Business Solutions exit costs. The adjusted effective tax rate and EPS metrics for 2022 exclude the expected gain on sale of Business Solutions, acquisition and divestiture costs, Business Solutions exit costs, exit costs from Russia and Belarus, and the reversal of uncertain tax positions.

Adjusted constant currency revenue growth metrics for 2021 exclude contributions from Business Solutions. Adjusted operating profit metrics for 2021 periods exclude acquisition and divestiture costs. Adjusted tax rate and earnings per share metrics for 2021 periods exclude the following items and the related taxes, as applicable: acquisition and divestiture costs, the impact from the gain on an investment sale, debt retirement expenses, Business Solutions change in permanent reinvestment tax assertion, and non-cash expenses associated with the termination of the Company’s pension plan.

THE WESTERN UNION COMPANY
NOTES TO KEY STATISTICS
(Unaudited)
(in millions, unless indicated otherwise)
Western Union’s management believes the non-GAAP financial measures presented provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operating results to assist management, investors, analysts, and others in understanding the Company’s financial results and to better analyze trends in the Company’s underlying business because they provide consistency and comparability to prior periods.
A non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP financial measure. A non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with the Company’s GAAP results and the reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP financial measure, provides a more complete understanding of the Company’s business. Users of the financial statements are encouraged to review the Company’s financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included below, where not previously reconciled above.

Non-GAAP related notes:
(k) Represents the impact from the fluctuation in exchange rates between all foreign currency denominated amounts and the United States dollar. Constant currency results exclude any benefit or loss caused by foreign exchange fluctuations between foreign currencies and the United States dollar, net of foreign currency hedges, which would not have occurred if there had been a constant exchange rate. The Company believes that this measure provides management and investors with information about revenue results and trends that eliminates currency volatility while increasing the comparability of the Company's underlying results and trends.
(l) Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (“EBITDA”) results from taking operating income and adjusting for depreciation and amortization expenses. EBITDA results provide an additional performance measurement calculation which helps neutralize the operating income effect of assets acquired in prior periods.
(m) Represents the impact from expenses incurred in connection with the Company's acquisition and divestiture activity, including for the review and closing of these transactions. The Company believes that, by excluding the effects of these charges that can impact operating trends, management and investors are provided with a measure that increases the comparability of the Company's underlying operating results.
(n) On April 12, 2021, the Company sold a substantial majority of the noncontrolling interest it held in a private company for cash proceeds of $50.9 million. As a result, the Company recorded a pre-tax gain in the second quarter of 2021. The gain on the sale and the income taxes on the gain have been removed from adjusted results. The Company believes excluding the impact of this gain will provide investors with a more meaningful comparison of results with the historical periods presented.
(o) On April 1, 2021, the Company repaid $500 million of aggregate principal amount of 3.6% unsecured notes due in 2022 and incurred approximately $14.8 million of costs, excluding accrued interest, in connection with the repayment. The cost associated with the repayment was recorded to Other income/(expense), net, in the second quarter of 2021. The costs associated with the payment and related tax benefit have been removed from adjusted results. The Company believes excluding the impact of this charge will provide investors with a more meaningful comparison of results with the historical periods presented.
(p) Represents the settlement charges for the Company's defined benefit pension plan incurred in the fourth quarter of 2021. On July 22, 2021, the Company's Board of Directors approved a plan to terminate and settle this frozen defined benefit plan, and during the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company settled its obligations under the plan and transferred the corresponding amount of plan assets to the insurer. The expenses associated with the pension settlement were recorded to Pension settlement charges within Total other income/(expense), net. The Company believes excluding the impact of this charge will provide investors with a more meaningful comparison of results with the historical periods presented.
(q) Represents the tax impact from changes to certain of the Company's permanent reinvestment assertions related to its decision to classify its Business Solutions business as held for sale in 2021. The Company believes excluding the impact of this charge will provide investors with a more meaningful comparison of results with the historical periods presented.
(r) During 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to sell its Business Solutions business to Goldfinch Partners LLC and The Baupost Group LLC (collectively, the "Buyer") and received cash consideration of $896.4 million, net of cash divested, subject to the remaining closes and regulatory capital adjustments. The sale will be completed in three closings, the first of which occurred on March 1, 2022 with the entirety of the cash consideration collected at that time and allocated to the closings on a relative fair value basis. The first closing excluded the operations in the European Union and the United Kingdom and resulted in a gain of $151.4 million. The second closing, which includes the United Kingdom operations, is expected to occur in December 2022, pending required regulatory approvals. The third closing, which includes the European Union operations, is currently expected in the first quarter of 2023, pending regulatory approvals. Revenues have been adjusted to exclude the carved out financial information for the Business Solutions business to compare the year-over-year changes and trends in the Company's continuing businesses, excluding the effects of this divestiture. While the sale of the Company's Business Solutions business does not qualify for or represent discontinued operations, the Company has also adjusted operating income, beginning in the first quarter of 2022 and concurrent with the sale, to exclude the carved out direct profit of the Business Solutions business. During the period between the first and third closings, the Company will continue to record revenues and operating income for the European Union and United Kingdom operations, but it will pay the Buyer a measure of the profits from these operations, adjusted for other charges, as contractually agreed, and this expense is recognized in Other income/(expense), net. Therefore, the Company believes that providing this information enhances investors' understanding of the profitability of the Company's remaining businesses. The Company has also excluded the gain on the sale, net of related taxes from its first quarter 2022 results and the 2022 adjusted outlook, as management believes that excluding the impact from the gain on sale of the Business Solutions business will provide investors with a clearer and more meaningful comparison of results in 2022 and future periods. These financial measures are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered a substitute for the GAAP measures.
(s) Represents the exit costs incurred in connection with the divestiture of the Business Solutions business and the suspension of operations in Russia and Belarus, primarily related to severance and non-cash impairments of property and equipment, an operating lease right-of-use asset, and other intangible assets. While certain of the expenses are identifiable to the Company's segments, the expenses are not included in the measurement of segment operating income provided to the Chief Operating Decision Maker for purposes of performance assessment and resource allocation. These expenses are therefore excluded from the Company's segment operating income results. These expenses have been excluded from operating income, the effective tax rate, and diluted earnings per share, net of related taxes. Additionally, the outlook metrics have been adjusted to exclude these costs, net of related taxes where applicable. The Company believes that, by excluding the effects of these charges that can impact operating trends, management and investors are provided with a measure that increases the comparability of the Company's underlying operating results.
(t) Represents non-cash reversals of significant uncertain tax positions. The Company believes excluding these reversals provides a more meaningful comparison of results to the historical periods presented.
