TMX Group Limited Reports Results for Second Quarter of 2022

Jul 28, 2022 (PRNewswire via COMTEX) -- Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, July 28, 2022

  • Revenue of $286.1 million, up 17% from $245.0 million in Q2/21, including $27.3 million from acquisition of voting control of BOX on January 3, 2022 [1]

  • Diluted earnings per share of $1.64, up 20% from $1.37 in Q2/21

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share [2 ] of $1.88, down 1% from $1.90 in Q2/21

TORONTO, July 28, 2022 /CNW/ - TMX Group Limited /zigman2/quotes/208003915/delayed CA:X -1.40% ("TMX Group") today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Commenting on the first half of 2022, John McKenzie, Chief Executive Officer of TMX Group, said:

"TMX delivered positive results for the first half of the year, despite challenging conditions across much of our operating environment. While external factors, including increased volatility, higher interest rates and geopolitical events had a negative impact on global capital markets activity, year-over-year growth was driven by increased revenue from Trayport and Derivatives Trading and Clearing, as well as revenue from AST Canada, acquired in August 2021. Empowered by the determined and collaborative efforts of our people, we move into the second half of the year clear in purpose; focused on serving our clients with excellence and striving to make our markets better for all stakeholders."

Commenting on TMX Group's performance in the second quarter of 2022, David Arnold, Chief Financial Officer of TMX Group, said:

"TMX's results for the second quarter reflect the continued resiliency of our diverse business model, with overall revenue growth of 17%, including increases across all our business segments. Revenue excluding BOX, AST Canada, and Tradesignal was up 1% compared with the second quarter of last year. We managed our operating expense increase excluding BOX, AST Canada, and Tradesignal to 7%, which remains below the current rate of inflation in Canada. Our diluted earnings per share grew by 20%, compared to the second quarter of 2021, which included an income tax expense related to a U.K. corporate tax rate change, and adjusted diluted earnings per share [3 ] was lower by 1%."

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted net income is a non-GAAP measure [4] , and adjusted earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and adjusted earnings per share CAGR are non-GAAP ratios [5] , and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP and are, therefore, unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Management uses these measures, and excludes certain items, because it believes doing so provides investors a more effective analysis of underlying operating and financial performance, including, in some cases, our ability to generate cash. Management also uses these measures to more effectively measure performance over time, and excluding these items increases comparability across periods. The exclusion of certain items does not imply that they are non-recurring or not useful to investors.

We present adjusted earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and adjusted net income to indicate ongoing financial performance from period to period, exclusive of a number of adjustments as outlined under the headings "Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share Reconciliation for Q2/22 and Q2/21" and "Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share Reconciliation for 1H/22 and 1H/21".

BOX

On January 3, 2022 BOX Holdings Group LLC (BOX) executed a unit buy-back with certain members which resulted in TMX Group's economic and voting interests increasing from 42.6% and 45.5%, to 47.9 % and 51.4%, respectively. As a result, effective January 3, 2022, TMX Group obtained voting control over BOX and commenced consolidating the entity. Going forward, non-controlling interests ("NCI") related to BOX (52.1%), including net income and equity attributable to NCI will be reported in our financial statements. The transaction has been accounted for as a business combination in accordance with IFRS 3, Business Combinations . TMX Group remeasured its previously held interest, resulting in a non-cash gain of approximately $177.9 million in Q1/22, recognized in the consolidated income statements as other income. BOX is included in the Derivatives Trading & Clearing operating segment.

Overall, BOX contributed to the increase in net income and diluted earnings per share in Q2/22 and 1H/22 compared to Q1/21 and 1H/21 respectively, as a result of improved operating performance and our increased economic interest. In addition, the decrease in adjusted net income [6] and adjusted diluted earnings per share [7] in Q2/22 and 1H/22 compared to the same periods in 2021, was partially offset by a positive impact from BOX.

Net Income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group and Earnings per Share attributable to equity holders of TMX Group

Net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group in Q2/22 was $92.1 million, or $1.65 per common share on a basic and $1.64 on a diluted basis, compared with a net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group of $77.3 million, or $1.38 per common share on a basic and $1.37 on a diluted basis, for Q2/21. The increase in net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group reflects a decrease in income tax expense compared to Q2/21, where we incurred a $19.8 million expense due to a U.K. corporate income tax rate change, as well as an increase in Income from operations of $5.4 million from Q2/21 to Q2/22 driven by an increase in revenue of $41.1 million partially offset by an increase in operating expenses of $35.7 million. The increase in revenue included approximately $27.3 million related to BOX Holdings (consolidated January 3, 2022), $12.2 million related to AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), while the increase in operating expenses included approximately $28.7 million in Q2/22 related to AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), BOX (consolidated January 2022), and Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). The increased expenses included $2.8 million related to amortization of acquired intangibles for AST Canada and BOX (4 cents per basic and diluted share), $0.9 million related to the TSA, as well as AST Canada integration costs of $4.9 million (7 cents per basic and diluted share). The increase in earnings per share was also partially attributable to a decrease in the number of weighted average common shares outstanding from Q2/21 to Q2/22.

Partially offsetting these increases to net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group was $0.6 million incurred in Q2/21 related to acquisition and related costs for AST Canada and Tradesignal.

Revenue was $286.1 million in Q2/22, up $41.1 million or 17% from $245.0 million in Q2/21 attributable to increases in revenue from Derivatives Trading and Clearing, Capital Formation, Global Solutions, Insights and Analytics and Equities and Fixed Income Trading, partially offset by a decrease in revenue from CDS. Revenue for Q2/22 included approximately $27.3 million related to BOX Holdings (consolidated January 3, 2022), $12.2 million related to AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021) and approximately $0.2 million related to Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). Revenue excluding BOX, AST Canada and Tradesignal increased by 1% from Q2/21 to Q2/22.

Operating expenses in Q2/22 were $147.8 million, up $35.7 million or 32%, from $112.1 million in Q2/21. There were approximately $28.7 million of expenses included in Q2/22 related to BOX (consolidated January 3, 2022), AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), and Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). The increased expenses included $2.8 million related to amortization of acquired intangibles for AST Canada and BOX (4 cents per basic and diluted share), $0.9 million related to AST Canada's TSA, as well as AST integration costs of $4.9 million (7 cents per basic and diluted share). There were also higher expenses related to higher headcount and payroll costs, increased costs related to our long term employee performance incentive plan of approximately $1.9 million, and increased expenses for travel and entertainment. In addition, there were higher expenses in Q2/22 due to the release of a provision for restoration costs for our data centre in Q2/21.

Partially offsetting these increases was lower short term employee performance incentive plan costs, and lower severance. We also incurred $0.6 million (1 cent per basic and diluted share) in acquisition and related costs related to Tradesignal and AST Canada in Q2/21.

Excluding expenses from BOX, AST Canada, and Tradesignal, operating expenses increased 7% in Q2/22 compared with Q2/21.

  • In Q2/21, the previously announced increase in the U.K. corporate income tax rate from 19% to 25%, effective April 1, 2023, was substantively enacted. This rate change increased net deferred income tax liabilities, resulting in a corresponding increase in income tax expense of $19.8 million.

Net Income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group and Earnings per Share attributable to equity holders of TMX Group

Net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group in 1H/22 was $359.5 million, or $6.44 per common share on a basic and $6.41 per common share on a diluted basis, compared with a net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group of $173.7 million, or $3.09 per common share on a basic and $3.07 on a diluted basis, for 1H/21. The increase in net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group reflected a gain on the revaluation of our interest in BOX upon acquisition of voting control of $177.9 million in 1H/22, a decrease in income tax expense compared to 1H/21, where we incurred a $19.8 million expense due to a U.K. corporate income tax rate change, and an increase in income from operations of $14.5 million. The increase in income from operations from 1H/21 to 1H/22 was driven by an increase in revenue of $76.2 million, which included $60.3 million related to BOX (consolidated January 2022) and $21.1 million related to AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), somewhat offset by an increase in operating expenses of $61.7 million. The increase in operating expenses included approximately $53.2 million in 1H/22 related to AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), BOX (consolidated January 2022), and Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). The increased expenses included $5.6 million related to amortization of acquired intangibles for AST Canada and BOX (8 cents per basic and diluted share), $2.2 million related to the TSA, as well as AST Canada integration costs of $6.1 million (8 cents per basic and diluted share). The increase in earnings per share was also partially attributable to a decrease in the number of weighted average common shares outstanding from 1H/21 to 1H/22.

Partially offsetting these increases to net income attributable to equity holders of TMX Group was $1.2 million incurred in 1H/21 related to acquisition and related costs for AST Canada and Tradesignal.

$573.2 $497.0 $76.2 15 %


Revenue was $573.2 million in 1H/22 up $76.2 million or 15% compared with $497.0 million in 1H/21 attributable to increases in revenue from Derivatives Trading and Clearing, Global Solutions, Insights and Analytics, as well as Capital Formation, partially offset by a decrease in Equities and Fixed Income Trading and Clearing revenue. The increase included $60.3 million of revenue for BOX (consolidated January 3, 2022), $21.1 million for AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), and $0.8 million for Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). Excluding revenue from BOX, AST Canada, and Tradesignal, revenue was down 1% in 1H/22 compared with 1H/21.

$293.1 $231.4 $61.7 27 %



Operating expenses in 1H/22 were $293.1 million, up $61.7 million or 27%, from $231.4 million in 1H/21. There were approximately $53.2 million of expenses included in 1H/22 related to BOX (consolidated January 3, 2022), AST Canada (acquired August 12, 2021), and Tradesignal (acquired June 1, 2021). The increased expenses included $5.6 million related to amortization of acquired intangibles for AST Canada and BOX (8 cents per basic and diluted share), $2.2 million related to AST Canada's TSA, as well as AST integration costs of $6.1 million (8 cents per basic and diluted share). There were increased headcount and payroll costs, increased costs related to our long term employee performance incentive plan of approximately $3.4 million, and increased expenses for travel and entertainment. In addition, there were higher expenses in 1H/22 due to the release of a provision for restoration costs for our data centre in 1H/21.

Partially offsetting these increases was lower short term employee performance incentive plan costs of approximately $6.7 million, and lower severance. We also incurred $1.2 million (2 cent per basic and diluted share) in acquisition and related costs related to Tradesignal and AST Canada in 1H/21. Excluding expenses from BOX, AST Canada, and Tradesignal, operating expenses increased 4% in 1H/22 compared with 1H/21.

  • In 1H/22, we recognized a deferred tax asset relating to historical tax losses not previously recognized for VisoTech, resulting in a corresponding decrease in income tax expense of $0.9 million.

  • In 1H/21, the previously announced increase in the U.K. corporate income tax rate from 19% to 25%, effective April 1, 2023, was substantively enacted. This rate change increased net deferred income tax liabilities, resulting in a corresponding increase in income tax expense of $19.8 million.

CAUTION REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

This press release of TMX Group contains "forward-looking information" (as defined in applicable Canadian securities legislation) that is based on expectations, assumptions, estimates, projections and other factors that management believes to be relevant as of the date of this press release. Often, but not always, such forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as "plans," "expects," "is expected," "budget," "scheduled," "targeted," "estimates," "forecasts," "intends," "anticipates," "believes," or variations or the negatives of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may," "could," "would," "might," or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved or not be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking information, by its nature, requires us to make assumptions and is subject to significant risks and uncertainties which may give rise to the possibility that our expectations or conclusions will not prove to be accurate and that our assumptions may not be correct.

Examples of forward-looking information include, but are not limited to, growth objectives; our target dividend payout ratio; the ability of TMX Group to de-leverage and the timing thereof; the modernization of clearing platforms, including the expected cash expenditures related to the modernization of our clearing platforms and the timing of the modernization; other statements related to cost reductions; the impact of the market capitalization of TSX and TSXV issuers overall (from 2020 to 2021); future changes to TMX Group's anticipated statutory income tax rate for 2022; factors relating to stock, and derivatives exchanges and clearing houses and the business, strategic goals and priorities, market conditions, pricing, proposed technology and other business initiatives and the timing and implementation thereof, the expected integration costs related to AST Canada and the timing thereof, the expected cost of the transitional services agreement related to AST Canada, the anticipated benefits and synergies of the AST Canada, including the expected impact on TMX Group's earnings and adjusted earnings per share and the timing thereof, financial results or financial condition, operations and prospects of TMX Group which are subject to significant risks and uncertainties.
