Highlights for the first quarter of 2024:

Total net sales of $203.4 million, an increase of 2.4%, or 2.8% on an organic basis(a), from the first quarter of 2023, driven by growth in software solutions and tech-enabled services, partially offset by lower print and distribution net sales.
Record quarterly software solutions net sales of $80.3 million, an increase of 14.6%, or 16.0% on an organic basis(a), from the first quarter of 2023; Software solutions net sales accounted for 39.5% of total net sales, up from 35.3% in the first quarter of 2023.
Net earnings of $33.3 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, as compared to $15.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023.
Adjusted EBITDA of $55.2 million, up $12.8 million, or 30.2%, from the first quarter of 2023; Adjusted EBITDA margin(a) of 27.1%, up approximately 580 basis points from the first quarter of 2023.
Operating Cash Flow improvement of $23.6 million and Free Cash Flow improvement of $21.9 million from the first quarter of 2023.
Gross leverage(a) of 0.9x and net leverage(a) of 0.7x as of March 31, 2024.
During the first quarter, the Company repurchased 139,893 shares for approximately $8.8 million at an average price of $62.61 per share. As of March 31, 2024, the remaining share repurchase authorization was $141.2 million.

(a) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Free Cash Flow, organic net sales, gross leverage and net leverage are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items noted in the reconciliation tables below. The tables below provide reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures.

(b) Defined as net cash used in operating activities

“We are pleased with the continued momentum in our performance during the first quarter, including consolidated net sales growth and an improved sales mix, an increase in Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion compared to the first quarter of 2023. Software solutions net sales increased 16.0% on an organic basis versus the first quarter of 2023, driven by the performance of Venue, our virtual dataroom product, which grew approximately 43%. The growth in software solutions net sales, combined with lower print and distribution net sales, resulted in software solutions accounting for 39.5% of total first-quarter net sales, up approximately 420 basis points from last year’s first quarter sales mix. In addition, capital markets transactional revenue increased approximately $7 million, or 17%, compared to last year’s first quarter, a result of improving market activity, though still softer than historical averages,” said Daniel N. Leib, DFIN’s president and chief executive officer.

Leib continued, “Adjusted EBITDA increased by $12.8 million, or 30.2%, and Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded to 27.1%, approximately 580 basis points higher than last year’s first quarter, reflecting not only the growth in our high-margin Venue and capital market transactional offerings, but also the benefits from the improved mix of sales and permanent changes we have made to our cost structure. Additionally, our strong Adjusted EBITDA, combined with improved working capital, helped to deliver year-over-year improvements in both operating cash flow and free cash flow. Our first-quarter performance highlights the continued progress we are making in our transformation.”

“Moving forward, our focus remains on investing to drive toward a more recurring sales mix, aggressively managing our cost structure, and allocating capital in a disciplined manner – all aimed toward delivering sustainable, long-term value for our clients, employees, and shareholders,” Leib concluded.

 


 

Net Sales

Net sales in the first quarter of 2024 were $203.4 million, an increase of $4.8 million, or 2.4% (an increase of 2.8% on an organic basis), from the first quarter of 2023. Net sales increased primarily due to growth in software solutions net sales in Venue and Arc Suite and higher capital markets transactional volumes, partially offset by lower print and distribution volume within the capital markets and investment companies compliance offerings and the impact of the eBrevia disposition.

 

Net Earnings

For the first quarter of 2024, net earnings were $33.3 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, as compared to $15.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023. Net earnings in the first quarter of 2024 included after-tax benefits of $5.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, primarily related to a gain on the sale of land, partially offset by restructuring, impairment and other charges, net. Net earnings in the first quarter of 2023 included after-tax charges of $3.2 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, primarily related to restructuring, impairment and other charges, net, partially offset by a net realized gain on the sale of an investment in an equity security.

 

Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Net Earnings

For the first quarter of 2024, Adjusted EBITDA was $55.2 million, an increase of $12.8 million as compared to the first quarter of 2023. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 27.1%, an increase of approximately 580 basis points as compared to the first quarter of 2023. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to higher sales volumes, a favorable sales mix, and cost control initiatives, partially offset by higher selling expenses as result of increased sales volumes and higher incentive compensation expense.

 

For the first quarter of 2024, non-GAAP net earnings were $27.8 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, as compared to $19.0 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023.

 

Reconciliations of net sales to organic net sales, net earnings to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and non-GAAP net earnings are presented in the tables.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

This news release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”), adjusted non- GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non- GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings, adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, Free Cash Flow and organic net sales. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, provide useful information about the Company’s operating results and liquidity and enhance the overall ability to assess the Company’s financial performance. The Company uses these measures, together with other measures of performance under GAAP, to compare the relative performance of operations in planning, budgeting and reviewing the performance of its business.

 

The Company’s non-GAAP statement of operations measures, which include non-GAAP gross profit, adjusted non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A, adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non- GAAP operating margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, adjusted non-GAAP net earnings and adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, are adjusted to exclude the impact of certain costs, expenses, gains and losses and other specified items that management believes are not indicative of our ongoing operations. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of expenses associated with the Company’s non-income tax, net, accelerated rent expense, share-based compensation and eliminate potential differences in results of operations between periods caused by factors such as historic cost and age of assets, financing and capital structures, taxation positions or regimes, restructuring, impairment and other charges, net and gain or loss on certain investments, business sales and asset sales.

 

Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as net cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. By adjusting for the level of capital investment in operations, the Company believes that free cash flow can provide useful additional basis for understanding the Company’s ability to generate cash after capital investment and provides a comparison to peers with differing capital intensity.

 

Organic net sales is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as reported net sales adjusted for the changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of dispositions.

 

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures are defined differently by different companies in our industry and, accordingly, such measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.

 

Use of Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of, and subject to the safe harbor created by, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with respect to the business, strategy and plans of DFIN and its expectations relating to future financial condition and performance. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about DFIN management’s beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Words such as “believes,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “aims,” “potential,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “considered,” “likely,” “estimate” and variations of these words and similar future or conditional expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. While DFIN believes these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond DFIN’s control. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend upon future circumstances that may or may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from DFIN’s current expectations depending upon a number of factors affecting the business and risks associated with the performance of the business. These factors include such risks and uncertainties detailed in DFIN periodic public filings with the SEC, including but not limited to those discussed under “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and in Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors of DFIN’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, those discussed under “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” in DFIN’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and in other investor communications of DFIN’s from time to time. DFIN does not undertake to and specifically declines any obligation to publicly release the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect future events or circumstances after the date of such statement or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.
