Nasdaq, Inc.: Nasdaq Reports First Quarter 2021 Results; Delivers 21% Increase in Revenue Compared to Prior Year

NEW YORK, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq, Inc. (Nasdaq: NDAQ) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021.

First quarter 2021 net revenues were $851 million, an increase of $150 million, or 21%, from $701 million in the prior year period. Net revenues reflected a $118 million, or 17%, positive impact from organic growth, an $18 million increase from the impact of favorable changes in FX rates and a $14 million increase from the inclusion of revenues from acquisitions.

"I am pleased with how our team delivered for clients against an incredibly dynamic capital markets backdrop, reflecting record trading and listing results as well as strong growth across our solutions segments," said Adena Friedman, President and CEO, Nasdaq. "We continue to execute against key secular growth opportunities, as illustrated by strong momentum in our institutional investor analytics solutions, as well as by the broad-based growth in total company ARR compared to the prior year period. We are also making fundamental progress in Nasdaq's strategic repositioning this year, with the close of the Verafin acquisition, and the consequent expansion of our addressable market and long-term performance potential."

GAAP operating expenses were $486 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $60 million from $426 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase of $60 million primarily relates to an $18 million increase from acquisitions and a $15 million increase from changes in FX rates. In addition, the increase reflects higher compensation and benefits expense, higher merger and strategic initiatives expense, and higher depreciation and amortization expense, partially offset by lower general, administrative and other expense. The lower general, administrative and other expense primarily reflects bond refinancing costs that were incurred in the first quarter of 2020, higher charitable donations made to COVID-19 response and relief efforts in the first quarter of 2020 and reduced corporate travel expenses.

Non-GAAP operating expenses were $393 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $57 million, or 17%, compared to the first quarter of 2020. This increase reflects a $24 million, or 7%, organic increase over the prior year period, an $18 million increase from acquisitions and a $15 million increase from changes in FX rates. The organic increase was primarily driven by higher performance-linked compensation expenses.

"I am incredibly excited to become Nasdaq's CFO at such an interesting time, in particular to have the opportunity to support our evolution as a technology and analytics provider," said Ann Dennison, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Nasdaq. "During the first quarter, we completed the Verafin acquisition, which we financed at attractive interest rates. In addition, we reached an agreement to divest our U.S. Fixed Income business and announced an increase to our existing share repurchase program authorization to, over time, neutralize the impact of the divestiture on our EPS."

On a GAAP basis, net income in the first quarter of 2021 was $298 million, an increase of 47% compared to $203 million in the first quarter of 2020. GAAP diluted EPS was $1.78, an increase of 46% compared $1.22 in the first quarter of 2020.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income in the first quarter of 2021 was $327 million, an increase of 30% compared to $251 million in the first quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP diluted EPS totaled $1.96, an increase of 31% from $1.50 in the first quarter of 2020.

As of March 31, 2021, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $774 million and total debt of $5,890 million, resulting in net debt of $5,116 million. This compares to total debt of $5,541 million and net debt of $2,796 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in net debt reflects closing the acquisition of Verafin. As of March 31, 2021, there was $248 million remaining under the board authorized share repurchase program (excluding the additional $1 billion authorized subject to the closing of the divestiture of our U.S. Fixed Income business and the resulting share issuance upon the consummation of that transaction).

In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Nasdaq also discloses certain non-GAAP results of operations, including, but not limited to, non-GAAP net income attributable to Nasdaq, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP operating expenses, that include certain adjustments or exclude certain charges and gains that are described in the reconciliation table of U.S. GAAP to non-GAAP information provided at the end of this release. Management uses this non-GAAP information internally, along with U.S. GAAP information, in evaluating our performance and in making financial and operational decisions. We believe our presentation of these measures provides investors with greater transparency and supplemental data relating to our financial condition and results of operations. In addition, we believe the presentation of these measures is useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of results as the items described below in the reconciliation tables do not reflect ongoing operating performance.

These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, U.S. GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate such measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure. Investors should not rely on any single financial measure when evaluating our business. This information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant as a substitute for our operating results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We recommend investors review the U.S. GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release. When viewed in conjunction with our U.S. GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations, we believe these non-GAAP measures provide greater transparency and a more complete understanding of factors affecting our business than U.S. GAAP measures alone.

We understand that analysts and investors regularly rely on non-GAAP financial measures, such as non-GAAP net income attributable to Nasdaq, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP operating expenses to assess operating performance. We use these measures because they highlight trends more clearly in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on U.S. GAAP financial measures, since these measures eliminate from our results specific financial items that have less bearing on our ongoing operating performance.

Foreign exchange impact: In countries with currencies other than the U.S. dollar, revenues and expenses are translated using monthly average exchange rates. Certain discussions in this release isolate the impact of year-over-year foreign currency fluctuations to better measure the comparability of operating results between periods. Operating results excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations are calculated by translating the current period's results by the prior period's exchange rates.
