Automatic Data Processing, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements
(Tabular dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
(Unaudited)
Note 1.  Basis of Presentation

The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“ADP” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).  The Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto are unaudited.  In the opinion of the Company’s management, the Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, that are necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s results for the interim periods.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses, and other comprehensive income that are reported in the Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto.  Actual results may differ from those estimates. All relevant footnotes have been adjusted for discontinued operations.

Interim financial results are not necessarily indicative of financial results for a full year.  The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 (“fiscal 2013”).

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current-period presentation (see Note 16). These changes did not significantly affect reportable segment results.

Note 2.  New Accounting Pronouncements
 
In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2013-11, “Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists.” ASU 2013-11 requires netting of unrecognized tax benefits against a deferred tax asset for a loss or other carryforward that would apply in settlement of the uncertain tax position. ASU 2013-11 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. Retrospective adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2013-11 will not have a material impact on the Company's results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.

In July 2013, the Company adopted ASU 2013-02, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income.”  ASU 2013-02 requires entities to disclose the amount of income (loss) reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income to each respective line item on the income statement. The guidance allows companies to elect whether to disclose the reclassification either on the face of the income statement or in the notes to the financial statements, including cross-referencing other disclosures which provide additional details about these amounts. The Company has elected to disclose the reclassification in the notes to the financial statements with cross-references to other disclosures which provide additional details about the amounts. The adoption of ASU 2013-02 did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.

Note 5. Acquisitions

Assets acquired and liabilities assumed in business combinations were recorded on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets as of the respective acquisition dates based upon their estimated fair values at such dates.  The results of operations of businesses acquired by the Company have been included in the Statements of Consolidated Earnings since their respective dates of acquisition.  The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair values of the underlying assets acquired and liabilities assumed was allocated to goodwill.  In certain circumstances, the allocations of the excess purchase price are based upon preliminary estimates and assumptions and subject to revision when the Company receives final information, including appraisals and other analysis.  Accordingly, the measurement period for such purchase price allocations will end when the information, or the facts and circumstances, becomes available, but will not exceed twelve months.

The Company acquired two businesses during the six months ended December 31, 2013 for approximately $28.1 million, net of cash acquired. The acquisitions were not material to the Company's results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

The Company did not acquire any businesses during the six months ended December 31, 2012.

The Company made contingent payments relating to previously consummated acquisitions of $0.5 million during the six months ended December 31, 2012.

Note 8. Receivables

Accounts receivable, net, includes the Company's trade receivables, which are recorded based upon the amount the Company expects to receive from its clients, net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company's receivables also include notes receivable for the financing of the sale of computer systems, primarily from auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, recreational vehicle, and heavy equipment retailers and manufacturers. Notes receivable are recorded based upon the amount the Company expects to receive from its clients, net of an allowance for doubtful accounts and unearned income. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company's best estimate of probable credit losses related to trade receivables and notes receivable based upon the aging of the receivables, historical collection data, internal assessments of credit quality, and the economic conditions in the automobile industry as well as in the economy as a whole. The Company charges off uncollectable amounts against the reserve in the period in which it determines they are uncollectable. Unearned income on notes receivable is amortized using the effective interest method.

The Company’s receivables, whose carrying value approximates fair value, are as follows:

The Company determines the allowance for doubtful accounts related to notes receivable based upon a specific reserve for known collection issues, as well as a non-specific reserve based upon aging, both of which are based upon history of such losses and current economic conditions. Based upon the Company's methodology, the notes receivable balances with specific and non-specific reserves and the specific and non-specific reserves associated with those balances are as follows:

The allowance for doubtful accounts as a percentage of notes receivable was approximately 5% as of December 31, 2013 and 6% as of June 30, 2013.

On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates the credit quality of its financing receivables, utilizing aging of receivables, collection experience and charge-offs.  In addition, the Company evaluates economic conditions in the auto industry and specific dealership matters, such as bankruptcy.  As events related to a specific client dictate, the credit quality of a client is reevaluated. Approximately 99% and 100% of notes receivable were current at December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

The Company has a $2.0 billion, 364-day credit agreement with a group of lenders that matures in June 2014.  In addition, the Company has a four-year $3.25 billion credit facility maturing in June 2015 that contains an accordion feature under which the aggregate commitment can be increased by $500.0 million, subject to the availability of additional commitments.  The Company also has an existing $2.0 billion five-year credit facility that matures in June 2018 that also contains an accordion feature under which the aggregate commitment can be increased by $500.0 million, subject to the availability of additional commitments.  The interest rate applicable to committed borrowings is tied to LIBOR, the federal funds effective rate, or the prime rate depending on the notification provided by the Company to the syndicated financial institutions prior to borrowing.  The Company is also required to pay facility fees on the credit agreements.  The primary uses of the credit facilities are to provide liquidity to the commercial paper program and funding for general corporate purposes, if necessary.  The Company had no borrowings through December 31, 2013 under the credit agreements.

The Company’s U.S. short-term funding requirements related to client funds are sometimes obtained through a commercial paper program, which provides for the issuance of up to $7.25 billion in aggregate maturity value of commercial paper, rather than liquidating previously-collected client funds that have already been invested in available-for-sale securities. The Company’s commercial paper program is rated A-1+ by Standard & Poor’s and Prime-1 by Moody’s.  These ratings denote the highest quality commercial paper securities.  Maturities of commercial paper can range from overnight to up to 364 days.  At December 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013, the Company had no commercial paper outstanding.  For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company's average borrowings were $3.3 billion and $3.7 billion, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.1% and 0.2%, respectively. For the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company's

15



average borrowings were $3.2 billion and $3.5 billion, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.1% and 0.2%, respectively. The weighted average maturity of the Company’s commercial paper issued during the three and six months ended December 31, 2013 approximated two days.

The Company’s U.S. and Canadian short-term funding requirements related to client funds obligations are sometimes obtained on a secured basis through the use of reverse repurchase agreements, which are collateralized principally by government and government agency securities, rather than liquidating previously-collected client funds that have already been invested in available-for-sale securities.  These agreements generally have terms ranging from overnight to up to five business days.  The Company has $3.0 billion available on a committed basis under the U.S. reverse repurchase agreements. At December 31, 2013, there were no outstanding obligations under reverse repurchase agreements. At June 30, 2013, the Company had $245.9 million of obligations outstanding related to reverse repurchase agreements, which were repaid on July 2, 2013. For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company had average outstanding balances under reverse repurchase agreements of $402.0 million and $416.8 million, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.6% and 0.7%, respectively. For the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company had average outstanding balances under reverse repurchase agreements of $465.7 million and $475.7 million, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.5% and 0.7%, respectively.

Note 11. Employee Benefit Plans

A.  Stock-based Compensation Plans
    
Stock-based compensation consists of the following:

Stock Options  Stock options are granted to employees at exercise prices equal to the fair market value of the Company's common stock on the dates of grant.  Stock options are issued under a graded vesting schedule and have a term of 10 years.  Options granted prior to July 1, 2008 generally vest ratably over five years and options granted after July 1, 2008 generally vest ratably over four years.  Compensation expense is measured based on the fair value of the stock option on the grant date and recognized over the requisite service period for each separately vesting portion of the stock option award. Stock options are forfeited if the employee ceases to be employed by the Company prior to vesting.

Restricted Stock
Time-Based Restricted Stock and Time-Based Restricted Stock Units Time-based restricted stock and time-based restricted stock units granted prior to fiscal 2013 are subject to vesting periods of up to five years and awards granted in fiscal 2013 and later are subject to a vesting period of two years. Awards are forfeited if the employee ceases to be employed by the Company prior to vesting.

Time-based restricted stock cannot be transferred during the vesting period. Compensation expense relating to the issuance of time-based restricted stock is measured based on the fair value of the award on the grant date and recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Employees are eligible to receive dividends on shares awarded under the time-based restricted stock program.

Time-based restricted stock units are settled in cash. Compensation expense relating to the issuance of time-based restricted stock units is recorded over the vesting period and is initially based on the fair value of the award on the grant date; and is subsequently remeasured at each reporting date during the vesting period. No dividend equivalents are paid on units awarded under the time-based restricted stock unit program.
 
Performance-Based Restricted Stock and Performance-Based Restricted Stock Units Performance-based restricted stock and performance-based restricted stock units generally vest over a one to three year performance period and a subsequent service period of up to 26 months. Under these programs, the Company communicates "target awards" at the beginning of the performance period with possible payouts at the end of the performance period ranging from 0% to 150% of the "target awards." Awards are forfeited if the employee ceases to be employed by the Company prior to vesting.

Performance-based restricted stock cannot be transferred during the vesting period. Compensation expense relating to the issuance of performance-based restricted stock is measured based upon the fair value of the award on the grant date and recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, based upon the probability that the performance target will be met. After the performance period, if the performance targets

16



are achieved, employees are eligible to receive dividends on shares awarded under the performance-based restricted stock program.

Performance-based restricted stock units are settled in cash. Compensation expense relating to the issuance of performance-based restricted stock units is recorded over the vesting period and is initially based on the fair value of the award on the grant date; and is subsequently remeasured at each reporting date during the one-year performance period, based upon the probability that the performance target will be met. No dividend equivalents are paid on awards under the performance-based restricted stock unit program.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan  The Company offers an employee stock purchase plan that allows eligible employees to purchase shares of common stock at a price equal to 95% of the market value for the Company's common stock on the last day of the offering period.  This plan has been deemed non-compensatory, and therefore no compensation expense has been recorded.

The Company currently utilizes treasury stock to satisfy stock option exercises, issuances under the Company's employee stock purchase plan, and restricted stock awards.  From time to time, the Company may repurchase shares of its common stock under its authorized share repurchase programs.  The Company repurchased 1.4 million shares in the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to 2.0 million shares repurchased in the three months ended December 31, 2012 and the Company repurchased 5.6 million shares in the six months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to 5.4 million shares repurchased in the six months ended December 31, 2012. The Company considers several factors in determining when to execute share repurchases, including, among other things, actual and potential acquisition activity, cash balances and cash flows, issuances due to employee benefit plan activity, and market conditions.

The following table represents stock-based compensation expense and related income tax benefits for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively:

As of December 31, 2013, the total remaining unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock options, restricted stock units, and restricted stock awards amounted to $6.0 million, $37.2 million, and $147.8 million, respectively, which will be amortized over the weighted-average remaining requisite service periods of 1.7 years, 1.5 years, and 1.6 years, respectively.

The fair value of each stock option issued is estimated on the date of grant using a binomial option pricing model.  The binomial model considers a range of assumptions related to volatility, risk-free interest rate, and employee exercise behavior.  Expected volatilities utilized in the binomial model are based on a combination of implied market volatilities, historical volatility of the Company’s stock price, and other factors.  Similarly, the dividend yield is based on historical experience and expected future changes. The risk-free rate is derived from the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.  The binomial model also incorporates exercise and forfeiture assumptions based on an analysis of historical data.  The expected life of the stock option grant is derived from the output of the binomial model and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding.

The fair value for stock options granted was estimated at the date of grant using the following assumptions:

During the six months ended December 31, 2013, the Company contributed $79.9 million to the pension plans and expects to contribute an additional $4.6 million to the pension plans during the remainder of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014.

Note 12. Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was 32.8% and 33.4%, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate is due to the resolution of certain tax matters, partially offset by an increase in foreign taxes and reduced foreign tax credits available during the three months ended December 31, 2013

The effective tax rate for the six months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 was 33.3% and 34.2%, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate is due to the resolution of certain tax matters, partially offset by an increase in foreign taxes and reduced foreign tax credits available during the six months ended December 31, 2013

Note 13. Commitments and Contingencies

On July 18, 2011, athenahealth, Inc. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ADP AdvancedMD, Inc. ("ADP AdvancedMD"), a subsidiary of the Company, seeking monetary damages, injunctive relief, and costs.  The allegations include a claim that ADP AdvancedMD's activities in providing medical practice management and billing and revenue management software and associated services to physicians and medical practice managers infringe a patent owned by athenahealth, Inc.  The parties are currently engaged in the discovery process and the court has not yet set a trial date.  The Company believes that it has meritorious defenses to this lawsuit and continues to vigorously defend itself against the allegations.

In June 2011, the Company received a Commissioner’s Charge from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) alleging that the Company has violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by refusing to recruit, hire, transfer and promote certain persons on the basis of their race, in the State of Illinois from at least the period of January 1, 2007 to the present.  The Company continues to investigate the allegations set forth in the Commissioner’s Charge and is cooperating with the EEOC’s investigation.

The Company is subject to various claims and litigation in the normal course of business. When a loss is considered probable and reasonably estimable, the Company records a liability in the amount of its best estimate for the ultimate loss. At this time, the Company is unable to estimate any reasonably possible loss, or range of reasonably possible loss, with respect to the matters described above. This is primarily because these matters involve complex issues subject to inherent uncertainty. There can be no assurance that these matters will be resolved in a manner that is not adverse to the Company.

It is not the Company’s business practice to enter into off-balance sheet arrangements. In the normal course of business, the Company may enter into contracts in which it makes representations and warranties that relate to the performance of the Company’s services and products.  The Company does not expect any material losses related to such representations and warranties.

The Company has obligations related to purchase and maintenance agreements on the software, equipment, and other assets that were disclosed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2013. In August 2013, the Company extended the term of a contract, which resulted in incremental obligations of $64.5 million and $43.5 million for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2019, respectively.


Note 14. Foreign Currency Risk Management Programs

The Company transacts business in various foreign jurisdictions and is therefore exposed to market risk from changes in foreign currency exchange rates that could impact its consolidated results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.  The Company manages its exposure to these market risks through its regular operating and financing activities and, when deemed appropriate, through the use of derivative financial instruments.  The Company does not use derivative financial instruments for trading purposes.  The Company had no derivative financial instruments outstanding at December 31, 2013 or June 30, 2013.

Note 16. Interim Financial Data by Segment

Based upon similar economic and operational characteristics, the Company’s strategic business units have been aggregated into the following three reportable segments: Employer Services, PEO Services, and Dealer Services.  The primary components of the “Other” segment are the results of operations of ADP Indemnity (a wholly-owned captive insurance company that provides workers’ compensation and employer’s liability deductible reimbursement insurance protection for PEO Services worksite employees), non-recurring gains and losses, miscellaneous processing services, such as customer financing transactions, and certain charges and expenses that have not been allocated to the reportable segments, such as stock-based compensation expense.  

Certain revenues and expenses are charged to the reportable segments at a standard rate for management reasons.  Other costs are recorded based on management responsibility.  There is a reconciling item for the difference between actual interest income earned on invested funds held for clients and interest credited to Employer Services and PEO Services at a standard rate of

20



4.5%. This allocation is made for management reasons so that the reportable segments' results are presented on a consistent basis without the impact of fluctuations in interest rates. This reconciling adjustment to the reportable segments' revenues and earnings from continuing operations before income taxes is eliminated in consolidation.

To align financial reporting with the manner in which the Company's chief operating decision maker assesses performance and makes decisions about resources to be allocated to the reportable segments, effective July 1, 2013, the Company no longer allocates a cost of capital charge to its reportable segments and no longer adjusts the operating results of its reportable segments on a constant exchange rate basis.  As a result of these changes, all prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.  These changes did not significantly affect reportable segment results.
