Summary of Full-Year 2019 Business Results

Company:

2019 revenue grew 4.4% year over year to $2.95 billion versus $2.83 billion in 2018 (7.0% growth on a constant-currency basis). Non-GAAP adjusted revenue grew 6.1% to $2.93 billion, representing the second-consecutive year of year-over-year non-GAAP adjusted revenue growth, and the highest annual growth rate since 1998. U.S. Federal sector revenue grew 26.5% year over year, the highest annual rate since 2003.

2019 operating profit was $238.2 million, versus $284.1 million in 2018 (reflective of the additional $53.0 million of operating profit recorded upon adoption of ASC 606 in 1Q18). Non-GAAP operating profit was up 7.1% year over year to $262.7 million. Total company 2019 operating profit margin was 8.1%, versus 10.1% in 2018 (reflective of 180 basis points of additional operating profit margin that resulted from the revenue recorded upon adoption of ASC 606 in 1Q18). Total company non-GAAP operating profit margin was up 10 basis points year over year to 9.0%.

Net loss for 2019 was $17.2 million versus net income of $75.5 million in 2018. As noted above, $53.0 million of this difference is a result of the operating profit recorded upon adoption of ASC 606 in 1Q18. The 2019 net loss also reflects a $20.1 million charge related to the convertible note transaction, along with post-retirement expense that was $12.8 million higher year over year, and a $13.0 million charge related to costs to close out the remediation of a site the company no longer operates. As a result of these items, the loss per share was $0.31, compared to earnings per diluted share of $1.30 in the prior-year period. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share(10) was up 8.7% year over year to $2.12 per share versus $1.95 per share in 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA(9) was $422.2 million, roughly flat relative to $422.5 million in 2018. Net income margin was (0.6)%, compared to 2.7% in 2018, with the year-over-year decline due to the flow-through of higher operating profit in 2018 resulting from the revenue recorded upon adoption of ASC 606, higher pension expense in 2019 and the other one-time items highlighted above in connection with net income/(loss). Adjusted EBITDA margin was in line with guidance at 14.4%, versus 15.3% in 2018. The decline in adjusted EBITDA margin year over year, relative to the increase in non-GAAP operating profit margin was driven by a change in depreciation and amortization due a longer assumed useful life for ClearPath Forward® software.

2019 cash provided by operations was up $50.0 million year over year to $123.9 million, versus $73.9 million in 2018. Free cash flow(11) was up $79.5 million year over year to $(35.9) million, compared to $(115.4) million in 2018. Adjusted free cash flow was up $65.0 million year over year to $127.0 million, versus $62.0 million in 2018. At December 31, 2019, the company had $538.8 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Services:

Services revenue grew 7.0% year over year in 2019 (or 9.5% in constant-currency) to $2.55 billion, representing the seventh-consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth for the segment. 2019 Services non-GAAP adjusted revenue grew 6.7% year over year to $2.54 billion, the highest annual growth rate since 2003. 2019 Services gross profit margin was up 60 basis points year over year to 16.6%, and 2019 Services operating profit margin was up 140 basis points year over year to 4.2%. 2019 non-GAAP adjusted Services gross profit(5) margin was up 40 basis points year over year to 16.0%, and 2019 non-GAAP adjusted Services operating profit margin was up 120 basis points year over year to 3.6%. Services backlog(2) was $4.3 billion, relative to $4.8 billion at year-end 2018. The company has previously noted that the level of Services backlog seen at year-end 2018 was not necessary to support its near-term growth expectations.

Technology:

2019 Technology revenue was $396.0 million, relative to $438.7 million in 2018 that included $53.0 million of revenue recognized upon the adoption of ASC 606. 2019 non-GAAP adjusted Technology revenue was up 2.7% year over year to $396.0 million, relative to $385.7 million in 2018 (up 4.8% in constant currency). 2019 Technology gross profit margin was 61.8% compared to 69.4% in the prior-year period, while Technology operating profit margin was 41.9% versus 51.3% in 2018 (reflective in part, in both cases of 180 basis points of additional operating profit margin that resulted from the revenue recorded upon adoption of ASC 606 in 1Q18). 2019 non-GAAP adjusted Technology gross profit margin(7) was 61.8% compared to 65.4% in the prior-year period, while non-GAAP adjusted Technology operating profit margin(8) was 41.9% versus 45.0% in 2018. These year-over-year compares were impacted by more sales of third-party hardware in 2019 than in 2018.

Summary of Fourth Quarter 2019 Business Results

Company:

Fourth-quarter 2019 revenue was $741.5 million, versus $760.9 million in the prior-year period, ((1.4%) on a constant-currency basis). Non-GAAP adjusted revenue was $739.3 million, relative to $754.6 million in the prior-year period. In both cases, the year-over-year decline was due to Technology revenues being more evenly distributed throughout the year in 2019, versus 2018 which saw lower full-year Technology revenue, but a higher concentration of that revenue in the fourth quarter. U.S. Federal sector revenue grew 23.4% year over year.

Operating profit margin in the fourth quarter was 5.0%, versus 9.5% in the prior-year period. Non-GAAP operating profit margin was 8.6% in the fourth quarter, relative to 11.9% in the prior-year period. In both cases, the year-over-year decline was largely due to a more even distribution of Technology revenue throughout 2019 than in 2018, which saw a higher concentration in the fourth quarter.

Net loss for the fourth quarter 2019 was $10.8 million versus net income of $25.0 million in the prior-year period, driven largely by the impact of Technology noted above. As a result, loss per share was $0.17, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.41 in the prior-year period, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $0.60 per share versus $0.97 per share in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was $105.1 million versus $134.5 million in the prior-year period as a result of the timing of Technology revenue as noted above, and net income margin was (1.5)%, compared to 3.3% in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 14.2%, versus 17.8% in the prior-year period, with the year-over-year decline also resulting from the timing of Technology revenue.

Operating cash flow in the fourth quarter was $125.7 million, versus $151.3 million in the prior-year period. Free cash flow was $95.6 million, compared to $103.1 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted free cash flow was up 12.4% year over year to $139.1 million, versus $123.8 million in the prior-year period.

Services:

Services revenue grew 1.2% year over year in the fourth quarter (or 2.4% in constant-currency) to $633.1 million, representing the seventh-consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth for the segment. Services non-GAAP adjusted revenue grew 1.9% year over year to $630.9 million. Services gross profit margin was up 50 basis points year over year to 15.5%, and Services operating profit margin was up 70 basis points year over year to 2.8%. Non-GAAP adjusted Services gross profit margin was up 110 basis points year over year to 15.2%, and non-GAAP adjusted Services operating profit margin was up 140 basis points year over year to 2.5%.

Technology:

As noted, non-GAAP adjusted Technology revenue was higher and more evenly distributed throughout the year in 2019 than was the case in 2018, which saw lower full-year Technology revenue but a higher concentration of that revenue in the fourth quarter. As a result, Technology revenue in the fourth quarter 2019 was $108.4 million, versus $135.4 million in the prior-year period, down 19.9% (or 18.5% in constant currency). Technology gross profit margin was 64.0% compared to 75.5% in the prior-year period largely driven by the more even distribution of Technology revenue throughout the year in 2019. Technology operating profit margin was 45.2% versus 58.6% in the prior-year period, driven by the same factors that influenced Technology gross margin. There were no non-GAAP adjustments in the Technology segment in the current or prior-year quarter.

Select Fourth-Quarter Contract Signings:

In the fourth quarter, the company entered into several contracts in each of its sectors including the following:

  • U.S. Federal: Unisys was awarded a subcontract with a Federal law enforcement agency to provide end user services and infrastructure services powered by InteliServe™.
  • Public: A U.S. state government signed a contract with the company for an integrated security framework and related disaster recovery services as well as to continue to provide private hybrid cloud services. The two-year contract is worth approximately $144 million, supporting government initiatives to provide mission-critical systems and data to state agencies and citizens.
  • Commercial: Unisys signed a contract to expand its relationship with a major Asian airline to provide technology that empowers cargo staff to be more productive using mobile devices to process shipments on the move at any location, such as a warehouse or an aircraft ramp, using digital signatures and bar code scanning via a mobile device to process freight more quickly and securely.
  • Financial Services: A large financial sector client signed a new agreement with Unisys to expand their use of Unisys' ClearPath Forward® infrastructure to run its mission critical applications. This new contract will also support the institution's training and development.

U.S. Federal Sale

In conjunction with the sale of Unisys' U.S. Federal business that was recently announced, the company expects to hold an investor day on April 29th (contingent on transaction closing prior to that date) to provide more insight into the expected implications of that transaction. Additional details on this, including expected timing, will be posted to the Unisys Investor Relations Website.

Unisys will hold a conference call today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss its results, including guidance for 2020 reflecting the impact of the expected sale of its U.S. Federal business. The listen-only webcast, as well as the accompanying presentation materials, can be accessed on the Unisys Investor website at www.unisys.com/investor. Following the call, an audio replay of the webcast, and accompanying presentation materials, can be accessed through the same link.

(1)Constant currency – The company refers to growth rates in constant currency or on a constant currency basis so that the business results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates to facilitate comparisons of the company's business performance from one period to another. Constant currency is calculated by retranslating current and prior period results at a consistent rate.

(2)Services Backlog – Services Backlog is the balance of contracted services revenue not yet recognized, including only the funded portion of services contracts with the U.S. Federal government.

Non-GAAP and Other Information

Although appropriate under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the company's results reflect revenue and charges that the company believes are not indicative of its ongoing operations and that can make its revenue, profitability and liquidity results difficult to compare to prior periods, anticipated future periods, or to its competitors' results. These items consist of certain portions of revenue, post-retirement, debt exchange and cost-reduction and other expenses. Management believes each of these items can distort the visibility of trends associated with the company's ongoing performance. Management also believes that the evaluation of the company's financial performance can be enhanced by use of supplemental presentation of its results that exclude the impact of these items in order to enhance consistency and comparativeness with prior or future period results. The following measures are often provided and utilized by the company's management, analysts, and investors to enhance comparability of year-over-year results, as well as to compare results to other companies in our industry.

(3)Non-GAAP adjusted revenue – In 2018 and 2019, the company's non-GAAP results reflect adjustments to exclude certain revenue. In 2018, this includes revenue from software license extensions and renewals, which were contracted for in 2017 and properly recorded as revenue at that time under the revenue recognition rules then in effect (ASC 605). Upon adoption of the new revenue recognition rules (ASC 606) on January 1, 2018, and since the company adopted ASC 606 under the modified retrospective method whereby prior periods were not restated, the company was required to include $53 million in the cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings on January 1, 2018. ASC 606 requires revenue related to software license renewals or extensions to be recorded when the new license term begins, which in the case of the $53 million was January 1, 2018. The company has excluded revenue and related profit for these software licenses in its non-GAAP results since it has been previously reported in 2017. This is a one-time adjustment and it will not reoccur in future periods. Additionally, the company's non-GAAP results include adjustments to exclude certain revenue and related profit relating to reimbursements from the company's check-processing JV partners for restructuring expenses included as part of the company's restructuring program.

(4)Non-GAAP operating profit – The company recorded pretax post-retirement expense and pretax charges in connection with cost-reduction activities, debt exchange and other expenses. For the company, non-GAAP operating profit excluded these items. The company believes that this profitability measure is more indicative of the company's operating results and aligns those results to the company's external guidance, which is used by the company's management to allocate resources and may be used by analysts and investors to gauge the company's ongoing performance. During 2018 and 2019, the company included the non-GAAP adjustments discussed in (3) herein.

(5)Non-GAAP adjusted Services gross profit – During 2018 and 2019, the company included the adjustments discussed in (3) herein.

(6)Non-GAAP adjusted Services operating profit – During 2018 and 2019, the company included the adjustments discussed in (3) herein.

(7)Non-GAAP adjusted Technology gross profit – In the first quarter of 2018, the company included the ASC 606 adjustment discussed in (3) herein.

(8)Non-GAAP adjusted Technology operating profit – In the first quarter of 2018, the company included the ASC 606 adjustment discussed in (3) herein.

(9)EBITDA & adjusted EBITDA – Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") is calculated by starting with net income (loss) attributable to Unisys Corporation common shareholders and adding or subtracting the following items: net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, interest expense (net of interest income), provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes post-retirement, debt exchange, and cost-reduction and other expenses, non-cash share-based expense, and other (income) expense adjustment. In order to provide investors with additional understanding of the company's operating results, these charges are excluded from the adjusted EBITDA calculation. During 2018 and 2019, the company included the adjustments discussed in (3) herein.

(10) Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share – The company has recorded post-retirement expense and charges in connection with debt exchange and cost-reduction activities and other expenses. Management believes that investors may have a better understanding of the company's performance and return to shareholders by excluding these charges from the GAAP diluted earnings/loss per share calculations. The tax amounts presented for these items for the calculation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share include the current and deferred tax expense and benefits recognized under GAAP for these amounts. During 2018 and 2019, the company included the adjustments discussed in (3) herein.

(11)Free cash flow – The company defines free cash flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures. Management believes this liquidity measure gives investors an additional perspective on cash flow from on-going operating activities in excess of amounts used for reinvestment.

(12)Adjusted free cash flow – Because inclusion of the company's post-retirement contributions and cost-reduction charges/reimbursements and other payments in free cash flow may distort the visibility of the company's ability to generate cash flow from its operations without the impact of these non-operational costs, management believes that investors may be interested in adjusted free cash flow, which provides free cash flow before these payments. This liquidity measure was provided to analysts and investors in the form of external guidance and is used by management to measure operating liquidity.
