NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FactSet ("FactSet" or the “Company”) (NYSE:FDS) (NASDAQ:FDS), a global provider of integrated financial information, analytical applications, and industry-leading service, today announced results for its first quarter ended November 30, 2021.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Highlights

  • Revenues increased 9.4%, or $36.5 million, to $424.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared with $388.2 million for the same period in fiscal 2021. The increase was primarily due to higher sales of analytics and research and advisory solutions. Organic revenues, which excludes the effects of acquisitions and dispositions completed within the last 12 months and foreign currency movements, grew 9.1% to $423.2 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2022 from the prior year period.
  • Annual Subscription Value (ASV) plus professional services was $1.7 billion at November 30, 2021, compared with $1.6 billion at November 30, 2020. Organic ASV plus professional services, which excludes the effects of acquisitions and dispositions completed within the last 12 months and foreign currency movements, was also $1.7 billion at November 30, 2021, up $142.3 million from the prior year at a growth rate of 8.9%.
  • Organic ASV plus professional services increased $16.9 million over the last three months. The primary contributors to this growth were higher sales of analytics and research and advisory solutions. Please see the “ASV + Professional Services” section of this press release for details.
  • GAAP operating margin decreased to 28.9% compared with 31.2% for the same period last year, mainly driven by restructuring costs and real estate exit costs. Adjusted operating margin decreased to 33.6% compared with 34.3% in the prior year period, primarily as a result of increased infrastructure expenses and data costs, partially offset by lower compensation expenses.
  • Diluted GAAP earnings per share (EPS) increased 6.5% to $2.79 compared with $2.62 for the same period in fiscal 2021. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 12.8% to $3.25 compared with the prior year period, primarily due to higher revenues and a decreased tax rate.
  • The Company’s effective tax rate for the first quarter decreased to 10.2% compared with 15.8% a year ago, primarily due to higher than expected tax benefit associated with the exercise of stock options in the current quarter compared with the three months ended November 30, 2020.
  • FactSet acquired Cobalt Software, Inc., a leading portfolio monitoring solutions provider for the private capital industry, in October 2021.
  • FactSet reaffirms its annual outlook for fiscal 2022 as provided in September 2021. Please see the “Annual Business Outlook” section of this press release for details.

  • Annual ASV retention was greater than 95%. When expressed as a percentage of clients, annual retention was 92%.

Quarterly free cash flow decreased to $64.3 million compared with $70.9 million a year ago, a decrease of 9.3%, primarily due to the timing of tax payments in the UK, higher year-over-year employee bonus payments and a $9.7 million reduction in capital expenditures related to facilities build-outs completed in fiscal 2021.

With the introduction of fixed income trading, Portware now enables clients to trade more efficiently across more asset classes. FactSet worked with longtime client GIC to build out these new capabilities, which now operates in parallel with the other asset classes already supporting GIC’s global trading desks.
  • FactSet joined Amazon Web Services (AWS) Data Exchange, with a comprehensive financial data and analytics offering. FactSet will deploy over 30 proprietary datasets available within the FactSet ecosystem on AWS Data Exchange, which will allow clients to leverage FactSet’s leading content for faster, more efficient decision-making.

These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Many factors, including those discussed more fully elsewhere in this release and in FactSet's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly its latest annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, as well as others, could cause results to differ materially from those stated.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Financial measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP including revenues, operating income and margin, net income, diluted earnings per share and cash provided by operating activities have been adjusted.

FactSet uses these adjusted financial measures both in presenting its results to stockholders and the investment community and in its internal evaluation and management of the business. The Company believes that these adjusted financial measures and the information they provide are useful to investors because they permit investors to view the Company’s performance using the same tools that management uses to gauge progress in achieving its goals. Investors may benefit from referring to these adjusted financial measures in assessing the Company’s performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods and may also facilitate comparisons to its historical performance. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted revenues exclude the impact of the fair value of deferred revenues acquired in a business combination. Organic revenues further excludes the effects of acquisitions and dispositions completed in the last 12 months and foreign currency movements in all periods presented. Adjusted operating income and margin, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude intangible asset amortization, the impact of the fair valuing of deferred revenues acquired in a business combination and non-recurring items. The Company believes that these adjusted financial measures better reflect the underlying economic performance of FactSet.

The GAAP financial measure, cash flows provided by operating activities, has been reduced by capital expenditures to report non-GAAP free cash flow. FactSet uses this financial measure both in presenting its results to stockholders and the investment community and in the Company’s internal evaluation and management of the business. Management believes that this financial measure is useful to investors because it permits investors to view the Company’s performance using the same metric that management uses to gauge progress in achieving its goals and is an indication of cash flow that may be available to fund further investments in future growth initiatives.
