Risk Assessment segment revenue grew 5.3% in the quarter and 5.0% excluding the recent acquisition of Risk Intelligence Ireland.

  • Revenue growth in industry-standard insurance programs was 5.4%, and 5.1% on an organic basis, resulting primarily from the annual effect of growth in 2016 invoicing effective from January 1 and growth from new solutions.
  • Property-specific rating and underwriting information revenue grew 4.8% in the third quarter. Growth was led by an increase in commercial underwriting solutions subscription revenue.

Expenses and Income

Cost of revenues from continuing operations increased 4.2% compared with third-quarter 2015. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to salaries, benefits, and technology to support business growth.

Selling, general, and administrative expense, or SG&A, from continuing operations increased 10.2% in the quarter due to acquisition-related costs and other expenses related to supporting business growth.

Income from continuing operations increased 2.7% to $128 million. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations decreased 0.6% to $253 million. Excluding the third quarter 2015 $15.6 million gain on sale of warrants, included in investment income and others, net, growth was 5.9%.

  • The 3.7% decrease to $147 million in Decision Analytics adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was the result of the non-recurring gain on sale of warrants in the prior period, which was partially offset by profitable growth of the business in the current period.
  • Third-quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA in Risk Assessment increased 4.0% to $106 million as a result of revenue growth and good expense management, partially offset by recent increases in hiring related to the previously announced talent realignment.

Earnings Per Share

Diluted GAAP EPS from continuing operations was $0.74 for third-quarter 2016, an increase of 1.4%; the prior period included a $15.6 million gain on sale of warrants. Diluted adjusted EPS was $0.84 for third-quarter 2016, an increase of 7.7% compared with the same period in 2015. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations increased because of solid operations, lower interest expense, and a lower tax rate. The increases were partially offset by depreciation and amortization expense and the prior period gain on sale of warrants that did not recur in 2016.

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities was $464 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Capital expenditures from continuing operations increased 0.8% to $88 million and were 5.9% of revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Free cash flow from continuing operations, excluding $75 million of taxes paid related to the sale of the healthcare business, was $429 million year-to-date, an increase of 12.8%.

Free cash flow from continuing operations represented 103.0% of income from continuing operations and 47.4% of adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Share Repurchases and Financing Activities

The company repurchased 0.9 million shares for a total cost of $73 million in the quarter. At September 30, 2016, the company had $280 million remaining under its share repurchase authorization.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements. These statements relate to future events or to future financial performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of words such as “may,” “could,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “target,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that are, in some cases, beyond our control and that could materially affect actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements.

Other factors that could materially affect actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements can be found in Verisk’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, annual reports on Form 10-K, and current reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. If any of these risks or uncertainties materialize or if our underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may vary significantly from what we projected. Any forward-looking statement in this release reflects our current views with respect to future events and is subject to these and other risks, uncertainties, and assumptions relating to our operations, results of operations, growth strategy, and liquidity. We assume no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as supplemental information regarding its operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures reported by other companies. The company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as organic constant currency revenue, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted EPS, and free cash flow, provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the company’s management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the company and for budgeting and planning purposes.

Our operating results reported in U.S. dollars are affected by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations because the underlying foreign currencies in which we transact change in value over time compared to the U.S. dollar; accordingly, we present certain constant currency financial information to provide a framework to assess how our businesses performed excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. We use the term “constant currency” to present results that have been adjusted to exclude foreign currency impact. Foreign currency impact represents the difference in results that are attributable to fluctuations in the currency exchange rates used to convert the results for businesses where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. This impact is calculated by translating comparable prior period year results at the currency exchange rates used in the current period, rather than the exchange rates in effect during the prior period.

Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that management uses to evaluate the performance of our segments. In all periods shown here and going forward, the company defines “adjusted EBITDA” as net income from continuing operations before interest expense, provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense, non-recurring severance charges, gain on sale of equity investments, and excluding second-quarter 2015 nonrecurring items related to the Wood Mackenzie acquisition.

Although securities analysts, lenders, and others frequently use EBITDA in their evaluation of companies, EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our statement of cash flow reported under U.S. GAAP. Management uses adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional U.S. GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of company performance. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments.
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs.
  • Although depreciation and amortization are noncash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.
  • Other companies in our industry may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of their calculations as comparative measures.

See Table 4, above, for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to income from continuing operations, Table 5 for a reconciliation of adjusted net income to income from continuing operations, and Table 6 for a reconciliation of free cash flow from continuing operations to net cash provided by operating activities.
