Intuit Reports Q4 and Fiscal 2015 Results; QuickBooks Online Grew 57% to 1,075,000 Subscribers

Aug 20, 2015

Sharpens Strategic Focus with Plans to Divest Demandforce, QuickBase and Quicken; Increases Dividend 20 Percent

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU) announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year fiscal 2015. The company’s fiscal year ended July 31.

“We closed out our fiscal year 2015 on a strong note, with excellent momentum in each of our core businesses as we continue to see the benefits of our ongoing transformation into a global cloud company. For the full fiscal year, total revenue and earnings per share both came in above the high end of our guidance range, before reclassifying our planned divestitures,” said Brad Smith, Intuit’s president and chief executive officer.

“In particular, our small business momentum continues to build and our QuickBooks Online ecosystem growth is accelerating, driving value for customers and Intuit. And we delivered great tax products this season.”

Financial Highlights

Intuit’s performance during the fourth quarter and fiscal year:

  • Reported fiscal 2015 revenue of $4.2 billion.
  • In the U.S., TurboTax Online units increased 11 percent, and total TurboTax units grew 7 percent, excluding the Free File Alliance.
  • Increased total QuickBooks Online subscribers by 57 percent for the year.
  • Reached 1.075 million QuickBooks Online subscribers through the end of the quarter.
  • Increased its commitment to return capital to shareholders with a 20 percent increase in its cash dividend.

Unless otherwise noted, all growth rates refer to the current period versus the comparable prior-year period, and the business metrics and associated growth rates refer to worldwide business metrics.

Divestitures and Portfolio Management

Intuit today announced its intent to divest Demandforce, QuickBase and Quicken to focus on and invest in businesses that strengthen the ecosystem and align with two strategic goals: to be the operating system behind small business success, and to do the nations’ taxes in the U.S. and Canada.

“Divesting Demandforce, QuickBase and Quicken enables both Intuit and these businesses to focus on meeting the needs of their respective customers, while allowing Intuit to accelerate our ability to deliver on our objectives,” said Neil Williams, chief financial officer. “We are confident about finding the right outcome for each business. Until then, we will continue to sell and support all of our current products; we will not waver in our commitment to customers’ success.”

As a result of this decision, revenue in fiscal 2016 will be reduced by approximately $250 million and non-GAAP earnings per share will be reduced by approximately $0.10, as the company reports these held-for-sale assets as discontinued operations.

Business Segment Results

The segment results reflect the treatment of assets held for sale as discontinued operations.

Small Business

  • Total Small Business segment revenue declined 5 percent for the quarter, and 2 percent for the year, reflecting the changes in desktop offerings that resulted in ratable revenue recognition.
  • QuickBooks total paying customers grew 7 percent for the year, accelerating from last year.
  • The QuickBooks Online Ecosystem continues to build momentum, with revenue growth of approximately 25 percent for the year, driven by strong customer acquisition.
    • Added 110,000 QuickBooks Online subscribers in the quarter, reaching 1,075,000 paying subscribers worldwide.
    • Increased QuickBooks Online subscribers outside the U.S. by over 135 percent, to 198,000.
    • Ended with 25,000 QuickBooks Self-Employed subscribers, up from 15,000 last quarter.
  • Online payroll customers grew 18 percent.
  • Online active payments customers grew 5 percent, and online payments charge volume grew 19 percent for the year.

Consumer and Professional Tax

  • Consumer Tax revenue grew 8 percent for the fiscal year.
  • ProTax revenue declined 33 percent for the year, in line with expectations. As previously disclosed, approximately $150 million in fiscal 2015 revenue shifted to fiscal 2016 due to changes in current desktop offerings that affected the timing of revenue recognition.

Capital Allocation Summary

  • Ended the fourth quarter with approximately $1.7 billion in cash and investments.
  • Paid out $283 million in dividends and repurchased $1.25 billion of shares in fiscal 2015. The company has $2.6 billion remaining on its authorization and continues to be in the market each quarter.
  • Received board approval for a $0.30 per share dividend for the fiscal first quarter, payable on Oct. 19. This represents a 20 percent increase versus last year and reflects the company’s large and growing cash position, as well as more recurring and predictable revenue streams.

Forward-looking Guidance

“Looking ahead to fiscal 2016, our customer growth is accelerating, active use is improving, and global adoption is hitting its stride. I’m encouraged about the strategic choices we are making for the future and our commitment to winning in the cloud,” Smith said. “We are creating a clear value proposition for our small business and tax customers, and we continue to innovate and to take share in large addressable markets. We are investing in the areas with the biggest long-term payoff, setting Intuit up for strong customer and revenue growth for fiscal 2016 and beyond.”

Cautions About Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including forecasts of expected growth and future financial results of Intuit and its reporting segments; Intuit’s prospects for the business in fiscal 2016 and beyond; expectations regarding Intuit’s growth outside the US; expectations regarding timing and growth of revenue for each of Intuit’s reporting segments and from current or future products and services; expectations regarding customer growth; expectations regarding changes to our products and their impact on Intuit’s business; expectations regarding the amount and timing of any future dividends or share repurchases; expectations regarding availability of our offerings; expectations regarding the impact of our strategic decisions on Intuit’s business; and all of the statements under the heading “Forward-looking Guidance”.

Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the following: inherent difficulty in predicting consumer behavior; difficulties in receiving, processing, or filing customer tax submissions; consumers may not respond as we expected to our advertising and promotional activities; product introductions and price competition from our competitors can have unpredictable negative effects on our revenue, profitability and market position; governmental encroachment in our tax businesses or other governmental activities or public policy affecting the preparation and filing of tax returns could negatively affect our operating results and market position; we may not be able to successfully innovate and introduce new offerings and business models to meet our growth and profitability objectives, and current and future offerings may not adequately address customer needs and may not achieve broad market acceptance, which could harm our operating results and financial condition; business interruption or failure of our information technology and communication systems may impair the availability of our products and services, which may damage our reputation and harm our future financial results; as we upgrade and consolidate our customer facing applications and supporting information technology infrastructure, any problems with these implementations could interfere with our ability to deliver our offerings; any failure to properly use and protect personal customer information and data could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; if we are unable to develop, manage and maintain critical third party business relationships, our business may be adversely affected; increased government regulation of our businesses may harm our operating results; if we fail to process transactions effectively or fail to adequately protect against potential fraudulent activities, our revenue and earnings may be harmed; related publicity regarding such fraudulent activity could cause customers to lose confidence in using our software and adversely impact our results; any significant offering quality problems or delays in our offerings could harm our revenue, earnings and reputation; our participation in the Free File Alliance may result in lost revenue opportunities and cannibalization of our traditional paid franchise; the continuing global economic downturn may continue to impact consumer and small business spending, financial institutions and tax filings, which could negatively affect our revenue and profitability; year-over-year changes in the total number of tax filings that are submitted to government agencies due to economic conditions or otherwise may result in lost revenue opportunities; our revenue and earnings are highly seasonal and the timing of our revenue between quarters is difficult to predict, which may cause significant quarterly fluctuations in our financial results; our financial position may not make repurchasing shares advisable or we may issue additional shares in an acquisition causing our number of outstanding shares to grow; our inability to adequately protect our intellectual property rights may weaken our competitive position and reduce our revenue and earnings; our acquisition and divestiture activities may disrupt our ongoing business, may involve increased expenses and may present risks not contemplated at the time of the transactions; our use of significant amounts of debt to finance acquisitions or other activities could harm our financial condition and results of operation; and litigation involving intellectual property, antitrust, shareholder and other matters may increase our costs.

[B]

We compute our annual provision for income taxes by applying the annual effective tax rate to income from recurring operations and adding the effects of any discrete income tax items specific to the period. Our effective tax rate for the twelve months ended July 31, 2015 was approximately 42%. Excluding the effects of the goodwill impairment charge, which was not tax deductible, our effective tax rate was approximately 36% and did not differ significantly from the federal statutory rate of 35%. Our effective tax rate for the twelve months ended July 31, 2014 was approximately 34% and did not differ significantly from the statutory rate of 35%.

 

[C]

In the fourth quarter fiscal 2015 we determined that our Demandforce, QuickBase, and Quicken businesses became long-lived assets held for sale and we accounted for them as discontinued operations.

We have segregated the operating results for these three businesses in our statements of operations for all periods presented. Net revenue from these businesses totaled $236 million for the twelve months ended July 31, 2015 and $263 million for the twelve months ended July 31, 2014. Net loss from discontinued operations for the twelve months ended July 31, 2015 includes a net loss from discontinued operations of $172 million partially offset by $124 million in tax benefits from the anticipated sale of these businesses. For the twelve months ended July 31, 2014, we recorded net income from discontinued operations of $8 million.

On August 1, 2013 we completed the sale of our Intuit Financial Services (IFS) business for approximately $1.025 billion in cash. We recorded a gain on the disposal of IFS of approximately $36 million, net of income taxes, in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

On August 19, 2013 we completed the sale of our Intuit Health business for cash consideration that was not significant and recorded a loss on disposal that was offset by a related income tax benefit of approximately $14 million, resulting in a net gain on disposal of approximately $10 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

We have reclassified our balance sheets for all periods presented to reflect these businesses as discontinued operations. Because the cash flows of these businesses were not material for any period presented, we have not segregated them from continuing operations on our statements of cash flows.

We have adjusted our fiscal fourth quarter and full-year 2014 operating income and earnings per share accordingly, resulting in a GAAP and non-GAAP operating income increase of approximately $16 million, and a GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share increase of approximately $0.03.

INTUIT INC.
ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accompanying press release dated August 20, 2015 contains non-GAAP financial measures. Table B1, Table B2 and Table E reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures in that press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same names and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies.

We compute non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year. We may consider whether other significant items that arise in the future should be excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.

We exclude the following items from all of our non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Share-based compensation expense
  • Amortization of acquired technology
  • Amortization of other acquired intangible assets
  • Goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges
  • Professional fees for business combinations

We also exclude the following items from non-GAAP net income (loss) and diluted net income (loss) per share:

  • Gains and losses on debt and equity securities and other investments
  • Income tax effects and adjustments
  • Discontinued operations

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Intuit’s operating results primarily because they exclude amounts that we do not consider part of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of the organization, our individual operating segments or our senior management. Segment managers are not held accountable for share-based compensation expense, amortization, or the other excluded items and, accordingly, we exclude these amounts from our measures of segment performance. We believe that our non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate the comparison by management and investors of results for current periods and guidance for future periods with results for past periods.

The following are descriptions of the items we exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Share-based compensation expenses. These consist of non-cash expenses for stock options, restricted stock units and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan. When considering the impact of equity awards, we place greater emphasis on overall shareholder dilution rather than the accounting charges associated with those awards.

Amortization of acquired technology and amortization of other acquired intangible assets. When we acquire an entity, we are required by GAAP to record the fair values of the intangible assets of the entity and amortize them over their useful lives. Amortization of acquired technology in cost of revenue includes amortization of software and other technology assets of acquired entities. Amortization of other acquired intangible assets in operating expenses includes amortization of assets such as customer lists, covenants not to compete and trade names.

Goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures non-cash charges to adjust the carrying values of goodwill and other acquired intangible assets to their estimated fair values.

Professional fees for business combinations. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures the professional fees we incur to complete business combinations. These include investment banking, legal and accounting fees.

Gains and losses on debt and equity securities and other investments. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures gains and losses that we record when we sell or impair available-for-sale debt and equity securities and other investments.

Income tax effects and adjustments. During fiscal 2014, we excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures the income tax effects of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments described above, as well as income tax effects related to business combinations. This was consistent with how we were evaluating our operating results and planning, forecasting, and evaluating future periods during that fiscal year.

During fiscal 2015, we began using a long-term non-GAAP tax rate for evaluating operating results and for planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate excludes the income tax effects of the non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments described above, assumes the federal research and experimentation credit is continuously in effect, and eliminates the effects of non-recurring and period specific items which can vary in size and frequency. Based on our current long-term projections, we are using a long-term non-GAAP tax rate of 34% which is consistent with the average of our normalized fiscal year tax rate over a four year period that includes the past three fiscal years plus the current fiscal year. We will evaluate this long-term non-GAAP tax rate on an annual basis and whenever any significant events occur which may materially affect this long-term rate. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate could be subject to change for various reasons including significant changes in our geographic earnings mix or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions in which we operate.

Operating results and gains and losses on the sale of discontinued operations. From time to time, we sell or otherwise dispose of selected operations as we adjust our portfolio of businesses to meet our strategic goals. In accordance with GAAP, we segregate the operating results of discontinued operations as well as gains and losses on the sale of these discontinued operations from continuing operations on our GAAP statements of operations but continue to include them in GAAP net income or loss and net income or loss per share. We exclude these amounts from our non-GAAP financial measures.

The reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in Table E include all information reasonably available to Intuit at the date of this press release. These tables include adjustments that we can reasonably predict. Events that could cause the reconciliation to change include acquisitions and divestitures of businesses, goodwill and other asset impairments, and sales of available-for-sale debt securities and other investments.
