Raises Full Year Guidance Following Several Quarters of Strong Performance

CINCINNATI, Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vantiv, Inc. (NYSE: VNTV) ("Vantiv" or the "company") today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. Total revenue increased 12% to $914 million in the third quarter as compared to $816 million in the prior year period. Net revenue increased 14% to $491 million as compared to $430 million in the prior year period, reflecting strong transaction growth. On a GAAP basis, net income per diluted share attributable to Vantiv, Inc. increased 52% to $0.41 as compared to $0.27 in the prior year period. Pro forma adjusted net income per share increased 20% to $0.71 as compared to $0.59 in the prior year period. (See Schedule 2 for pro forma adjusted net income per share.)

"Our business continues to generate high rates of organic growth," said Charles Drucker, president and chief executive officer at Vantiv.

Merchant Services
Merchant Services net revenue increased 17% to $404 million in the third quarter as compared to $345 million in the prior year period, primarily due to a 10% increase in transactions and a 6% increase in net revenue per transaction. Sales and marketing expenses increased 17% to $148 million in the third quarter as compared to $126 million in the prior year period, primarily due to new sales growth in partner channels.

Financial Institution Services
Financial Institution Services net revenue increased 1% to $86.2 million in the third quarter as compared to $85.6 million in the prior year period. Net revenue growth was impacted by compression from the Fifth Third Bank contract renewal, partially offset by contribution from EMV card reissuance and fraud related services. Sales and marketing expenses decreased 8% to $5.6 million in the third quarter as compared to $6.1 million in the prior year period.

Operating Expenses
Other operating costs increased 8% on a GAAP basis to $72 million in the third quarter as compared to $67 million in the prior year period.

When excluding transition, acquisition and integration costs as well as share-based compensation, General and administrative expenses increased 7% on a pro forma basis to $30 million as compared to $28 million in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA

Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization expense decreased on a GAAP basis to $66 million in the third quarter as compared to $71 million in the prior year period.  Excluding amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, depreciation and amortization expense decreased on a pro forma basis to $18 million as compared to $22 million in the prior year period.

Share Repurchase Authorization Increased to $300 Million
Vantiv's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of additional shares of Vantiv Class A common stock  with an aggregate purchase price of up to $250 million, providing the company with a total of approximately $300 million available for share repurchases.

Debt Refinancing
Total debt was increased by $250 million in connection with the refinancing of credit facilities which resulted in a reduction of interest rates. Following the refinancing, outstanding debt consists of a $2.5 billion Term A loan, maturing in October 2021, and a $765 million Term B loan, maturing in October 2023. The financing also includes a revolving credit facility of $650 million.

Forward-Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact or relating to present facts or current conditions included in this release are forward-looking statements including any statements regarding guidance and statements of a general economic or industry specific nature. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, guidance, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "plan," "intend," "believe," "may," "should," "can have," "likely" and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.

The forward-looking statements contained in this release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you review and consider information presented herein, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of future performance or results. They depend upon future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond our control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual future performance or results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Certain of these factors and other risks are discussed in the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and include, but are not limited to: (i) our ability to adapt to developments and change in our industry; (ii) competition; (iii) unauthorized disclosure of data or security breaches; (iv) systems failures or interruptions; (v) our ability to expand our market share or enter new markets; (vi) our ability to identify and complete acquisitions, joint ventures and partnerships; (vii) failure to comply with applicable requirements of Visa, MasterCard or other payment networks or changes in those requirements; (viii) our ability to pass along fee increases; (ix) termination of sponsorship or clearing services; (x) loss of clients or referral partners; (xi) reductions in overall consumer, business and government spending; (xii) fraud by merchants or others; (xiii) a decline in the use of credit, debit or prepaid cards; (xiv) consolidation in the banking and retail industries; (xv) the effects of governmental regulation or changes in laws; and (xvi) outcomes of future litigation or investigations. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. More information on potential factors that could affect the company's financial results and performance is included from time to time in the "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of the company's periodic reports filed with the SEC, including the company's most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and its subsequent filings with the SEC.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release speaks only as of the date of this release. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.

_____________________________

(1) Net revenue is revenue, less network fees and other costs which primarily consist of pass through expenses incurred by us in connection with providing processing services to our clients, including Visa and MasterCard network association fees, payment network fees, third party processing expenses, telecommunication charges, postage and card production costs.

(2) Non-operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 primarily relate to the change in fair value of a tax receivable agreement ("TRA") entered into as part of the acquisition of Mercury.

(3) Due to our structure as a C corporation and Vantiv Holding's structure as a pass-through entity for tax purposes, the numerator in the diluted net income per share calculation is adjusted to reflect our income tax expense at an expected effective tax rate assuming the conversion of the Class B units of Vantiv Holding into shares of our Class A common stock.  The expected effective tax rate for 2016 and 2015 was 36.0%. The components of the diluted net income per share calculation are as follows:

Non-GAAP and Pro Forma Financial Measures

This schedule presents non-GAAP and pro forma financial measures, which are important financial performance measures for the Company, but are not financial measures as defined by GAAP.  Such financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP, and such measures may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.

________________________

Pro forma adjusted net income is derived from GAAP income before applicable income taxes and adjusted for the following items described below:

(1) Represents acquisition and integration costs incurred in connection with our acquisitions, charges related to employee termination benefits and other transition activities.  Transition, acquisition and integration costs for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015 includes $1,769 and $5,110 in Other Operating, respectively and $992 and $6,249 in General and Administrative ("G&A"), respectively.  Transition, acquisition and integration costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015 includes $7,744 and $23,343 in Other Operating, respectively and $14,588 and $26,035 in G&A, respectively.

(2) Share-based compensation is recorded in G&A.

(3) Represents amortization of intangible assets acquired through business combinations and customer portfolio and related asset acquisitions.

(4) Non-operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 primarily relate to the change in the fair value of a TRA entered into as part of the acquisition of Mercury.

(5) Represents adjusted income tax expense to reflect an effective tax rate of 36.0% for 2016 and 2015, assuming the conversion of the Class B units of Vantiv Holding into shares of Class A common stock, including the tax effect of adjustments described above. The effective tax rate is expected to remain at 36.0% for the remainder of 2016.

(6) Represents tax benefits due to the amortization of intangible assets and other tax attributes resulting from or acquired with our acquisitions, and to the tax basis step up associated with our separation from Fifth Third Bank and the purchase or exchange of Class B units of Vantiv Holding, net of payment obligations under tax receivable agreements.

(7) Represents the non-controlling interest, net of pro forma income tax expense discussed in (5) above, associated with a consolidated joint venture.
