NASDAQ OMX Announces Second Quarter 2009 Results

Published

NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. ("NASDAQ OMX(r)") (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today reported net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX of $69 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009 compared with net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX of $100 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2008, and net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX of $94 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009.

For comparison purposes, results for the first and second quarters of 2009 are presented on a non-GAAP basis and exclude merger expenses, losses on the sale of investments, and certain other non-recurring items. Results for the second quarter of 2008 are presented on a pro forma non-GAAP basis that reflect the financial results of NASDAQ OMX and the Philadelphia Stock Exchange as if they were a combined company for the period presented and exclude merger expenses and certain other non-recurring items. A complete reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP and to pro forma non-GAAP results is provided as an attachment.

For the second quarter of 2009, net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX on a non-GAAP basis was $99 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, a decrease of 1%, when compared to pro forma non-GAAP net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX of $100 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2008, and a decrease of 3% when compared to non-GAAP net income attributable to NASDAQ OMX of $102 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2009.

Items excluded from second quarter 2009 non-GAAP results are:

* $19 million in losses associated with selling NASDAQ OMX's equity interest in Orc Software AB; * $7 million in pre-tax expenses associated with workforce reductions, asset retirements and other non-recurring items; * $5 million in losses on the sale of an investment security in the Oslo Bors exchange; * $3 million in pre-tax merger-related expenses; and, * $1 million in pre-tax gains related to the early extinguishment of debt.

"We entered 2009 with an ambitious plan that contained more new initiatives than ever before, and at the mid-way point of the year we are pleased to report that we remain on track to deliver on our goals," commented Bob Greifeld, NASDAQ OMX's Chief Executive Officer. "During the second half of the year, as we migrate PHLX and Nordic trading volumes onto our common platform, we are laying a foundation to further the success of our diversified business model. Our commitment to drive growth through the execution of strategic initiatives and the realization of operating efficiencies remains firm."

Highlights

* Reached new market share highs in the trading of U.S. equity options contracts. The combined market share of NASDAQ OMX PHLX and The NASDAQ Options Market averaged 21% during the second quarter of 2009, up from 17% in the second quarter of 2008. Total volume traded on these markets grew 40% in the second quarter of 2009 when compared to the same period last year. * Achieved a new record in the NASDAQ Closing Cross on June 26, 2009 as it was used to reconfigure the entire family of U.S. Russell indexes during their annual reconstitution. A record 1.002 billion shares were executed in the Closing Cross in 2.9 seconds. This compares with 893.3 million shares executed in 5.0 seconds during Russell's annual reconstitution in 2008. NASDAQ official closing prices determined by the NASDAQ Closing Cross are widely used throughout the industry, including by Russell Indexes, Standard & Poor's, Dow Jones, and mutual funds across the country. * Announced that The Bank of New York Mellon made a strategic minority investment in International Derivatives Clearing Group, an independently operated NASDAQ OMX subsidiary that operates as a designated clearing organization for clearing and settling interest rate swap contracts and other fixed income derivatives contracts. * Witnessed significant growth in volume and market share at NASDAQ OMX BX, as the recently launched market now regularly trades approximately 200 million shares per day with market share of U.S. cash equity trading in excess of 2%. Also during the quarter The NASDAQ Stock Market maintained its leadership position as the single largest pool of liquidity in which to trade U.S. cash equities, matching 20% of all volume. * Launched trading of equities listed in Norway on the exchanges that comprise NASDAQ OMX Nordic, recently capturing 3% of market share. This new offering is designed to provide lower trading costs and other benefits for customers seeking to trade all Nordic equities on one platform. * Announced that NASDAQ Market Pathfinders was recognized as the Best New Data Product of the Year, as determined by the readership of Inside Market Data, the publication of choice for senior level data and technology executives within the financial services and securities industry. * Captured a total of 21 new listings during the second quarter of 2009, including 18 on The NASDAQ Stock Market and three on the exchanges that comprise NASDAQ OMX Nordic and NASDAQ OMX Baltic. Included in new listings are three IPOs and three companies that switched their listing to NASDAQ from exchanges operated by NYSE Euronext. NASDAQ OMX also recognized 91 secondary offerings during the quarter, up from 18 in the first quarter of 2009. * Entered into an exclusive agreement for Morningstar to provide equity research profile reports on more than 3,600 NASDAQ OMX- listed companies. With the Morningstar Profile Report, NASDAQ OMX will now be able to provide NASDAQ OMX companies with basic research coverage at no cost to the issuer. * Launched 6 new indexes, continuing NASDAQ OMX's expansion of its Global Index Group through the introduction of innovative new products. The new indexes include: NASDAQ OMX ABA Community Bank Index; NASDAQ OMX CRD Global Sustainability Index; OMX Stockholm 30 Next Index; OMX Stockholm 60 Index; OMX Stockholm 60 Cap Index; OMX AFGX Index NASDAQ OMX Small Cap Sweden Index. * Expanded the Market Technology business by extending a trading technology agreement with the Polish Power Exchange, Towarowa Geilda Energii (TGE); successfully launching a new trading platform at TOCOM, the Tokyo Commodity Exchange; providing equities trading and clearing technology to the recently launched electronic trading system of the Iraq Stock Exchange; and completing the migration of the SIX Swiss Exchange to a new trading platform based on NASDAQ OMX market technology.

"Our results at the mid-point of the year demonstrate that we've stayed focused on our objectives of reducing expenses, reducing our debt obligations, and investing in organic growth opportunities," said David Warren, NASDAQ OMX's Chief Financial Officer. "Our successful integration efforts continue to allow us to invest in new initiatives while lowering our overall expense base. For the full year of 2009 we are reaffirming our total operating expense guidance to be in the range of $830.0 million to $850.0 million, including approximately $30.0 million in non-recurring costs."

Financial Review

Revenues

Revenues less liquidity rebates, brokerage, clearance and exchange fees ("net exchange revenues") were $367 million for the second quarter of 2009, a decrease of $53 million, or 13%, from second quarter 2008 results, of which $33 million was due to changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. Net exchange revenues declined $2 million, or 1%, from first quarter 2009 results.

Market Services

Market Services net exchange revenues decreased to $246 million, down 13% from the prior year quarter, and down 5% from the first quarter of 2009.

Transaction Services

Net exchange revenues from Transaction Services were $155 million for the second quarter of 2009, a decrease of $25 million, or 14%, when compared to the second quarter of 2008, and a decrease of $12 million, or 7%, from the first quarter of 2009.

* Cash Equity Trading net exchange revenues were $68 million for the second quarter of 2009, down $26 million, or 28%, from the prior year quarter and down $12 million, or 15%, from the first quarter of 2009. - Net U.S. cash equity trading revenues decreased when compared to the prior year quarter due primarily to a decline in the average net fee per share matched on the NASDAQ and NASDAQ OMX BX trading systems. The decrease in net exchange revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is due primarily to a reduction in the number of shares matched by NASDAQ resulting from declining market share. Also contributing to the decrease is a decline in the average net fee per matched share. - European cash equity trading revenues declined when compared to the prior year quarter but remained equal to first quarter of 2009 revenues. The decline from second quarter 2008 is primarily due to a decline in value traded, which dropped from EUR 241 billion in the prior year quarter to EUR 147 billion in the second quarter of 2009. Also contributing to the decline in European cash equity trading revenues when compared to the second quarter of 2008 are changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. When compared to the first quarter of 2009, increases in value traded and trade volumes during the second quarter of 2009 were offset by a decline in the average trading fee realized by NASDAQ OMX. - Included in U.S. cash equity trading revenues in the second quarter of 2009 are $92 million in SEC Section 31 fees, compared with $37 million in the second quarter of 2008 and $25 million in the first quarter of 2009. Corresponding cost of revenues, reflecting the reimbursement of these fees to the SEC, is included in brokerage, clearance and exchange fees. * Derivative trading net exchange revenues were $55 million for the second quarter of 2009, equal to revenues from the prior year quarter and the first quarter of 2009. - The increase in net U.S. derivative trading revenue when compared to the prior year quarter and the first quarter of 2009 is primarily due to higher option contract volume executed on NASDAQ OMX PHLX and The NASDAQ Options Market. Somewhat offsetting increased volumes are declines in the average fee realized per contract traded. - The decline in European derivative trading revenues when compared to the second quarter of 2008 is due to lower Nordic derivative trading volumes and changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. Partially offsetting these declines is the inclusion of NASDAQ OMX Commodities revenues following the October 21, 2008 closing of NASDAQ OMX's acquisition of Nord Pool ASA's clearing, international derivatives and consulting subsidiaries. The decline in revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is due primarily to lower trading volumes.

Market Data

Market Data revenues were $79 million for the second quarter of 2009, down $9 million, or 10%, when compared to the second quarter of 2008 and down $2 million, or 2% from the first quarter of 2009.

* Net U.S. Tape Plans revenues were $30 million in the second quarter of 2009, down $6 million, or 17%, when compared to the prior year quarter and down $4 million, or 12%, from the first quarter of 2009. - U.S. Tape Plans revenues reflect revenues generated by members of joint industry plans that distribute the national best bid and offer and last sale information for U.S. equities. Plan members, such as The NASDAQ Stock Market, share revenue collected from disseminating this information. The distribution of revenue to each plan member is determined using a formula, required by Regulation NMS, that calculates each participant's share of trading and quoting activity. - The decline in U.S. Tape Plans revenues, net of revenue sharing plans, in the second quarter of 2009 when compared to the second quarter of 2008 is primarily due to the decline in NASDAQ's trading and quoting market share of U.S. equities and a reduction in the size of shareable tape plan revenue pools. The decline in revenue in the second quarter of 2009 when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is primarily due to reductions in NASDAQ's share of trading and quoting activity in U.S. equities. * U.S. market data products revenues were $30 million in the second quarter of 2009, an increase of $3 million, or 11%, when compared to the year ago quarter, and up $2 million, or 7%, when compared to the first quarter of 2009. U.S. market data products revenues reflect revenues generated from the sale of NASDAQ OMX proprietary data products. Revenue growth when compared to prior periods is driven primarily by the growth of products such as the NASDAQ Global Index Data Service and other proprietary data products. * European market data products revenues were $19 million in the second quarter of 2009, a decrease of $6 million, or 24%, when compared to the prior year quarter and equal to revenues reported in the first quarter of 2009. The decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2008 is primarily due to changes in the exchange rate of the Euro as compared to the U.S. dollar and to declines in subscriber populations.

Issuer Services

During the second quarter of 2009, Issuer Services revenues declined $10 million, or 11%, to $82 million from the second quarter of 2008 but increased $3 million, or 4%, from the prior quarter.

Global Listing Services

Global Listing Services revenues were $72 million for the second quarter of 2009, down $9 million, or 11%, when compared to the second quarter of 2008 but up $2 million, or 3%, from the first quarter of 2009. Decreases in revenues from prior periods are due primarily to lower U.S. annual renewal fees resulting from fewer listed companies, and to lower market capitalization values for European listed equities, which in turn result in lower European listing fees. Also contributing to the decline in revenues from the second quarter of 2008 are changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. Driving the increase in revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2009 are higher corporate services revenues resulting from increased demand for services.

Global Index Group

Global Index Group revenues were $10 million for the second quarter of 2009, down $1 million, or 9%, when compared to the second quarter of 2008 but up $1 million, or 11%, when compared to the first quarter of 2009. Driving the decline in revenues when compared to the prior year quarter are lower license fees associated with NASDAQ OMX-licensed products, including lower volumes and declines in assets under management in ETFs and structured products. Higher revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2009 are due to increases in assets under management in ETFs and structured products.

Market Technology

Market Technology revenues were $36 million for the second quarter of 2009, down $7 million, or 16%, when compared to the second quarter of 2008, but up $7 million, or 24%, when compared to the first quarter of 2009. The revenue decline when compared to the prior year quarter is primarily due to the loss of contract revenues following NASDAQ OMX's acquisition of Nord Pool ASA's clearing, international derivatives and consulting subsidiaries, noted above. Nord Pool ASA was previously a customer of NASDAQ OMX Market Technology. Also contributing to the decline are changes in exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. The increase in revenues when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is primarily due to seasonally higher revenues for the second quarter of 2009.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses decreased $52 million, or 21%, to $199 million from $251 million in the prior year quarter but increased $5 million, or 3%, from $194 million in the first quarter of 2009. The decrease in expenses from the second quarter of 2008 was realized through a reduction in compensation expense, lower professional and contract services expense, reduced expenses for computer operations and data transmission, and lower general, administrative and other expense. These reductions were driven by successful integration efforts associated with NASDAQ's business combination with OMX and the acquisition of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange. Also contributing to the decline were changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar. The increase in expenses when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is driven by higher compensation expense and changes in the exchange rates of various currencies as compared to the U.S. dollar.

Net Interest Expense

Net interest expense was $23 million for the second quarter of 2009, compared with $24 million for the second quarter of 2008 and $22 million for the first quarter of 2009. The decline in net interest expense when compared to the prior year period is primarily due to declining interest rates. The increase when compared to the first quarter of 2009 is due to lower interest income earned on cash reserves which resulted from lower interest rates during the second quarter of 2009.

Earnings Per Share

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2009 earnings per diluted share were $0.47 as compared to pro forma non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.47 in the prior year quarter, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.48 in the first quarter of 2009. NASDAQ OMX's weighted average shares outstanding used to calculate diluted earnings per share were 214 million for each of the periods reported.

In June 2009, NASDAQ OMX filed an application for an advance tax ruling with the Swedish Tax Council for Advanced Tax Rulings. The application was filed to confirm whether certain interest expense is deductible for Swedish tax purposes under legislation that became effective on January 1, 2009. We expect to receive a favorable response from the Swedish Tax Council for Advance Tax Rulings by our fiscal year end 2009. We recorded the Swedish tax benefit as described above in our condensed consolidated financial statements. In the second quarter of 2009, we recorded a tax benefit of $5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share. For the first six months of 2009, we recorded a tax benefit of $9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share. We expect to record recurring quarterly tax benefits of $4 million to $5 million with respect to this issue for the foreseeable future.
