 INTL FCStone Inc. Reports Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Financial Results
   Tuesday, August 08, 2017 4:15:06 PM ET

Operating Revenues up 13%, to $197.6 million

Net Income of $12.7 million

EPS of $0.66

INTL FCStone Inc. (the ’Company’); (INTL ), a diversified global financial services organization providing execution, risk management and advisory services, market intelligence and clearing services across asset classes and markets around the world, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year 2017 third quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Sean M. O’Connor, CEO of INTL FCStone Inc., stated "Despite continued depressed volatility in our markets we achieved net earnings of $0.66 per share, an increase of 14% over the immediately preceding quarter but 15% below the prior year. As compared to the prior year, highlights for the quarter include strong growth in segment income in three of our operating segments: Global Payments was up 30% as a result of a 54% increase in payments and stable fixed expenses; Physical Commodities continued its strong rebound in both the precious metals and agricultural markets and was up nearly threefold; and Clearing and Execution Services nearly doubled due largely to the acquisition of the Derivative Voice Brokerage, Correspondent Clearing and Independent Wealth Management businesses. However, aggregate segment income was down 3% versus a year ago with Commercial Hedging, our largest segment, declining primarily due to weaker OTC revenues and Securities down, largely due to lower revenue capture in our Equity-Market Making business, driven by lower volatility in the equity markets."

Consolidated financial statements for the Company will be included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to be filed with the SEC. The Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q will also be made available on the Company’s website at www.intlfcstone.com.

Interest Income/Expense:

Overall interest income increased $4.0 million to $19.6 million in the third quarter, as a result of both an increase in short term interest rates and our recent acquisitions. The acquisition of the Sterne Agee Correspondent Clearing business added an incremental $1.2 million in interest income, and our domestic institutional fixed income business increased interest income $2.7 million in the third quarter over the prior year. In addition, average customer equity in the Financial Ag & Energy and Exchange-traded Futures & Options components of our Commercial Hedging and Clearing and Execution Services ("CES") segments increased 5% to $1.9 billion in the third quarter compared to the prior year, which combined with an increase in short-term interest rates resulted in an aggregate $1.6 million increase in interest income in these businesses. These increases were partially offset by a decline in our Corporate unallocated segment.

In the third quarter, we recorded a minimal pre-tax unrealized loss on our remaining U.S. Treasury notes held as part of our interest rate management strategy. The prior year period included a $2.7 million pre-tax unrealized gain on interest rate swaps and U.S. Treasury notes held as part of the strategy. These unrealized gains/losses are recorded in our Corporate unallocated segment. During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, we liquidated all of our interest rate swap positions held as part of the strategy. During the second quarter of fiscal 2017, we sold $865.0 million of U.S. Treasury notes under this strategy, leaving $290.0 million of U.S. Treasury notes outstanding, which will mature in calendar 2017. We also maintain interest earning cash deposits with banks, clearing organizations and counterparties.

The unrealized gains/losses on U.S. Treasury notes are reflected in interest income on the Condensed Consolidated Income Statements, while the unrealized gains/losses on interest rate swaps are included in trading gains, net. On a segment basis, these unrealized losses are reported in the Corporate unallocated segment, while the amortized earnings on these investments are included in the Commercial Hedging and CES segments. Under this strategy, we do not actively trade in such instruments and generally intend to hold these investments to their maturity date, however as a broker-dealer, unrealized fluctuations in the marked-to-market ("MTM") valuations of these investments are included in operating revenues in the current period. The table below reflects the after-tax impact on net income of these MTM fluctuations for the last seven fiscal quarters.

Interest expense increased 45% to $11.2 million in the third quarter compared to $7.7 million in the prior year. The increase in interest expense is primarily related to $2.4 million of higher expense from our domestic institutional fixed income business as well as increased activity and short-term rates resulting in higher costs in our Exchange-Traded Futures & Options and Equity Market-Making businesses. Additionally, increased credit line capacity and higher average borrowings outstanding on our corporate credit facility, available for working capital needs, and our physical commodity financing facility resulted in increased expense.

Commercial Hedging

In our Commercial Hedging segment, we provide risk management consulting services in which we assist our customers in the execution of their hedging strategies through a wide range of products from listed exchange-traded futures and options on futures contracts, to basic over-the-counter ("OTC") instruments that offer greater flexibility and structured OTC products designed for customized solutions. These services span virtually all traded commodity markets, with the largest concentrations in agricultural and energy commodities (consisting primarily of grains, energy and renewable fuels, coffee, sugar, cotton, and food service) and base metals products listed on the LME.

Operating revenues decreased 21% to $57.1 million in the third quarter compared to $71.9 million in the prior year. Exchange-traded revenues decreased 11%, to $32.7 million in the third quarter, resulting primarily from declines in agricultural and LME metals customer volumes. The decline in agricultural volumes was primarily a result of the effect of low market volatility in the global grain markets, particularly as compared to a strong prior year. Lower volatility in the global metals markets also led to the decline in the LME metals customer volumes. Energy and renewable fuels experienced strong volume growth from the addition of new institutional customers, albeit this new business was at a lower rate per contract as compared to our agricultural business, which resulted in modest growth in energy and renewable fuels operating revenues. Overall exchange-traded contract volumes declined 1%, as the increases in energy and renewable fuels volumes were more than offset by the declines in agricultural and LME metal volumes. The average rate per contract was $5.33, an 11% decline versus the prior year quarter.

OTC revenues decreased 40%, to $17.6 million in the third quarter with OTC volumes declining 17% and the average rate per contract decreasing 29% compared to the prior year. These declines were primarily the result of lower market volatility in the global grain, food service and dairy markets as well as reduced activity in our interest rate swap business.

Consulting and management fees declined $0.1 million versus the prior year, while interest income, increased 50%, to $3.3 million compared to the prior year. The increase in interest income was primarily driven by an increase in short-term rates, as average customer equity was relatively flat with the prior year period.

Segment income decreased to $16.3 million in the third quarter compared to $25.4 million in the prior year, primarily as a result of the decline in operating revenues and to a lesser extent a $0.3 million increase in non-variable direct expenses. The increase in non-variable direct expenses was primarily related to non-variable compensation and benefits, trade errors and dues and subscriptions. Variable expenses, excluding interest, expressed as a percentage of operating revenues increased to 43% compared to 42% in the prior year, primarily as the result of increased transaction-based clearing expenses as a result of product mix.

Global Payments

Our Global Payments segment provides global payment solutions to banks and commercial businesses as well as charities, non-governmental organizations and government organizations. We offer payments services in more than 175 countries and 140 currencies, which we believe is more than any other payments solution provider, and provide competitive and transparent pricing.

Operating revenues increased 22% to $22.5 million in the third quarter compared to $18.4 million in the prior year. The volume of payments made increased 54% as we continued to benefit from an increase in financial institutions and other customers utilizing our electronic transaction order system, however this was partially offset by a 21% decrease in the average revenue per trade.

Segment income increased 30% to $12.9 million in the third quarter compared to $9.9 million in the prior year. This increase primarily resulted from the increase in operating revenues as non-variable direct expenses remained flat with the prior year period. Variable expenses, excluding interest, expressed as a percentage of operating revenues were unchanged at 28% as compared to the prior year.

Securities

In our Securities segment, we provide value-added solutions that facilitate cross border trading in the equity markets as well as act as an institutional dealer in fixed income securities, including U.S. Treasuries, Federal Agency, Agency Mortgage-Backed and Asset-Backed Securities to a customer base including asset managers, commercial bank trust and investment departments, broker-dealers, and insurance companies. In addition, we also originate, structure and place debt instruments in the international and domestic capital markets as well as operate an asset management business in Argentina.

Operating revenues decreased 4% to $40.0 million in the third quarter compared to $41.6 million in the prior year.

Operating revenues in our Securities segment are comprised of activities in four product lines, Equity Market-Making, Debt Trading, Investment Banking and Asset Management. Operating revenues in Equity Market-Making decreased 9% in the third quarter compared to the prior year. Gross dollar volume traded increased 8%, however more notably, the average revenue per $1,000 traded declined 15% as current third quarter volatility was relatively low, leading to a tightening of spreads. Equity Market-Making operating revenues include the trading profits we earn before the related expense deduction for ADR conversion fees. These ADR fees are included in the consolidated income statements as ’transaction-based clearing expenses’.

Operating revenues in Debt Trading declined 2% in the third quarter compared to the prior year, as stronger performance in our Argentina and Latin American businesses, were more than offset by declines in our domestic institutional fixed income business. Operating revenues in Investment Banking increased 75%, to $0.7 million as compared to the prior year, led by the performance in our Argentina operations. Asset Management operating revenues decreased 6% in the third quarter as compared to the prior year. Assets under management increased 21% to $653.4 million in the third quarter compared to $541.4 million in the prior year.

Segment income decreased 10% to $12.9 million in the third quarter compared to $14.4 million in the prior year, as a result of the decline in operating revenues as well as an increase in interest expense. Variable expenses, excluding interest, expressed as a percentage of operating revenues decreased to 32% in the third quarter compared to 39% in the prior year, primarily as the result of a decline in variable compensation due to product mix.

Physical Commodities

In our Physical Commodities segment, we provide a full range of trading and hedging capabilities, including OTC products, to select producers, consumers and investors in precious metals. Additionally, we act as principal to facilitate financing, structured pricing and logistics services to clients across the commodity complex, including energy commodities, grains, oil seeds, cotton, coffee, cocoa, edible oils and feed products.

Operating revenues for Physical Commodities increased 56% to $12.0 million in the third quarter compared to $7.7 million in the prior year.

Precious Metals operating revenues increased 71% to $7.2 million in the third quarter compared to $4.2 million in the prior year. Operating revenues increased from the prior year period as a result of a 48% increase in the number of ounces traded as well as an 18% increase in the average revenue per ounce traded.

Operating revenues in Physical Ag & Energy increased 37% to $4.8 million in the third quarter compared to the prior year. The increase in operating revenues is primarily due to business expansion following an internal restructuring of the business, resulting in increased operating revenues from both existing and new customer relationships.

Segment income increased 231% to $4.3 million in the third quarter compared to $1.3 million in the prior year, primarily as a result of the increase in operating revenues, which was partially offset by a $1.0 million increase in non-variable direct expenses, primarily compensation and benefits, bad debt expense and operations charges.

Clearing and Execution Services

Our CES segment provides competitive and efficient clearing and execution in all major futures and securities exchanges globally as well as prime brokerage in all major foreign currency pairs and swap transactions. Following our acquisition of the Sterne Agee correspondent securities clearing business, we are an independent full-service provider to introducing broker-dealers ("IBD’s") of clearing, custody, research, syndicated and security-based lending products and services, including a proprietary technology platform which offers seamless connectivity to ensure a positive customer experience through the clearing and settlement process. Also as part of this transaction, we acquired Sterne Agee’s independent wealth management business which offers a comprehensive product suite to retail customers nationwide.

Operating revenues increased 96% to $65.4 million in the third quarter compared to $33.3 million in the prior year.

Operating revenues in our Exchange-traded Futures & Options business were relatively flat at $28.7 million in the third quarter compared to $28.8 million in the prior year despite a 10% decrease in exchange-traded volumes as the average rate per contract increased 8% compared to the prior year period. Interest income in the Exchange-traded Futures & Options business increased $0.5 million to $1.9 million in the third quarter primarily as a result of an increase in short-term rates and a 9% increase in average customer equity to $1.0 billion.

Operating revenues in our FX Prime Brokerage business were flat at $4.5 million in the third quarter compared to the prior year despite a 3% decrease in foreign exchange volumes as spreads widened modestly.

During the fourth fiscal quarter of 2016, we acquired the correspondent clearing and independent wealth management businesses of Sterne Agee. During the third quarter, the Correspondent Clearing and Independent Wealth Management businesses generated operating revenues of $6.4 million and $18.9 million, respectively. Included within these operating revenues, Correspondent Clearing and Independent Wealth Management businesses had interest income of $1.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively.

On October 1, 2016, we acquired ICAP plc’s London-based EMEA oil voice brokerage business. In the third quarter, the Derivative Voice Brokerage business contributed $6.9 million in operating revenues.

Segment income increased to $6.5 million in the third quarter compared to $3.4 million in the prior year, primarily as a result of the acquisition of the Correspondent Clearing, Independent Wealth Management and Derivative Voice Brokerage businesses, which were partially offset by a decline in segment income in our Exchange-traded Futures & Options and FX Prime Brokerage businesses. Segment income in the third quarter includes a $0.9 million quarterly charge to compensation and benefits per the terms of the acquisition of the oil voice brokerage business which will continue to be expensed through the end of fiscal 2018 based upon the employees’ continued employment. Variable expenses, excluding interest, as a percentage of operating revenues were 70% in the third quarter compared to 75% in the prior year. The increase in introducing broker commissions expense was primarily driven by the acquisition of the Independent Wealth Management business which added $14.9 million of expense in the third quarter, as well as a $1.1 million increase in the Exchange-traded Futures & Options business. Non-variable direct expenses increased $8.0 million versus the prior year as the result of the acquisitions discussed above, which collectively added $7.3 million in non-variable expenses in the current period.
