Part I
 
Item 1. Business
 
General
 
     Incorporated in Delaware in 1961, Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, “ADP” or the “Company”) is one of the world’s largest providers of business outsourcing solutions. Leveraging over 60 years of experience, ADP® offers a wide range of human resource (HR), payroll, tax and benefits administration solutions from a single source. ADP is also a leading provider of integrated computing solutions to auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, recreational vehicle, and heavy equipment dealers throughout the world. ADP’s mission is to power organizations with insightful solutions that drive business success.
 
     The Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, all amendments to those reports, and the Proxy Statement for its Annual Meeting of Stockholders are made available, free of charge, on its website at www.adp.com as soon as reasonably practicable after such reports have been filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
Segments of Business
 
     The Company’s reportable segments are: Employer Services, Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Services, and Dealer Services. For financial information by segment and by geographic area, see Note 18 of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” contained in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. A brief description of each reportable segment’s operations is provided below.
 
Employer Services
 
     Employer Services offers a comprehensive range of HR information, payroll processing, time and labor management, and tax and benefits administration solutions and services, including traditional and Web-based outsourcing solutions, that assist employers in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America (primarily Brazil), Australia and Asia to staff, manage, pay and retain their employees. As of June 30, 2011, Employer Services assisted approximately 537,000 employers with approximately 628,000 payrolls. Employer Services markets these solutions and services through its direct marketing salesforce and, on a limited basis, through indirect sales channels, such as marketing relationships with banks and accountants, among others. In fiscal 2011, 80% of Employer Services’ revenues were from the United States, 13% were from Europe, 5% were from Canada and 2% were from South America (primarily Brazil), Australia and Asia.
 
United States
 
     Employer Services’ approach to the market is to match clients’ needs to the solutions and services that will best meet their expectations. To facilitate this approach, in the United States, Employer Services is comprised of the following market-facing groups: Small Business Services (SBS) (serving primarily organizations with fewer than 50 employees); Major Account Services (serving primarily organizations with between 50 and 999 employees); and National Account Services (serving primarily organizations with 1,000 or more employees). In addition, the Added Value Services division of Employer Services provides services to clients across all three of these groups.
 
     ADP provides payroll services that include the preparation of client employee paychecks, electronic direct deposits and stored value payroll cards, along with employee pay statements, supporting journals, summaries and management reports. ADP also supplies the quarterly and annual social security, medicare and federal, state and local income tax withholding reports required to be filed by employers. ADP enables its largest clients to interface their major enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications with ADP’s outsourced payroll services. For those companies that choose to process payroll in-house, ADP delivers stand-alone services such as payroll tax filing, check printing and distribution, year-end tax statements (i.e., Form W-2), wage garnishment services, Retirement Services, Talent Solutions, Benefit Services, and Time and Labor Management Services. In fiscal 2011, ADP also launched its ADP Mobile Solutions application, which gives our clients’ employees access to their vital HR, payroll, and benefits information via multiple smartphone platforms.

     In order to address the growing business process outsourcing (BPO) market for clients seeking human resource information systems and benefit outsourcing solutions, ADP offers its integrated comprehensive outsourcing services (COS) solution that allows larger clients to outsource to ADP their HR, payroll, payroll administration, employee service center, benefits administration, and time and labor management functions. For mid-sized clients, ADP Workforce Now® Comprehensive Services provides integrated tools and technology to support payroll, a full-featured benefits administration solution, HR guidance and HR administration needs from recruitment to retirement. ADP also offers ADP Resource®, an integrated, flexible HR and payroll service offering for smaller clients that provides a menu of optional services, such as 401(k), FSA and a comprehensive Pay-by-Pay® workers’ compensation payment program.
 
     ADP’s Added Value Services division includes the following businesses: Compliance and Payment Solutions (CAPS) (formerly known as Tax and Financial Services), Insurance Services, and Tax Credit Services. These businesses primarily support SBS, Major Account Services and/or National Account Services, and their services are sold through those businesses, as well as by dedicated sales teams and via marketing arrangements with alliance partners.
  • CAPS offers a host of full outsourcing services, including payroll tax, garnishment processing, payment processing and unemployment compensation management. CAPS also offers wage verification services through a resale arrangement with a third party. In addition, CAPS offers software-as-a-service solutions including sales and use tax processing and filing, and automated accounts payable processing. As part of CAPS’ payroll tax services, CAPS collects and processes federal, state and local payroll taxes on behalf of, and from, ADP clients and remits these taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities. This business provides an electronic interface between ADP clients and over 8,100 federal, state and local tax agencies in the United States, from the Internal Revenue Service to local governments. In fiscal 2011, CAPS in the United States processed and delivered approximately 47 million employee year-end tax statements and over 39 million employer payroll tax returns and deposits, and moved $1.2 trillion in client funds to taxing authorities and its clients’ employees via electronic transfer, direct deposit, and ADPCheck™. CAPS is also responsible for the efficient movement of information and funds from clients to third parties through service offerings such as new hire reporting, TotalPay® payroll check (ADPCheck), full service direct deposit (FSDD), and stored value payroll card (TotalPay® Card).
     
  • Insurance Services provides a comprehensive Pay-by-Pay workers’ compensation payment program and, through Automatic Data Processing Insurance Agency, Inc., offers workers compensation and group health insurance to small and mid-sized clients.
     
  • Tax Credit Services provides job tax credit services that assist employers in the identification of, and filing for, federal, state and local tax credits and other incentives based on geography, demographics and other criteria, and includes negotiation of incentive packages with applicable governmental agencies.
     Employer Services also provides the following solutions and services:
  • Retirement Services provides recordkeeping and/or related administrative services to primarily small and mid-sized clients with respect to various types of retirement (primarily 401(k) and SIMPLE IRA) plans, deferred compensation plans and “premium only” cafeteria plans.
     
  • Talent Solutions includes Screening and Selection Services, Applicant Management Services, I-9 Services, and Talent Management solutions. Screening and Selection Services provides background checks, reference verifications and an HR help desk. Applicant Management Services provides employers with a Web-based solution to manage their talent throughout their lifecycle. I-9 Services provides electronic processing, storing and tracking of employment eligibility verification forms (i.e., Form I-9). Talent Management solutions, which ADP provides both through its own services and through resale arrangements with third parties, include Compensation Management, Performance Management, Learning Management, and Succession Planning.

  • Benefit Services provides benefits administration across all market segments, including management of open enrollment and ongoing enrollment of benefits, and leave of absence, COBRA and FSA administration.
     
  • Time and Labor Management Services provides solutions for employers to capture, calculate and report employee time and attendance.
     ADP made several acquisitions in fiscal 2011, including MasterTax, a leading provider of do-it-yourself payroll tax filing software, and AdvancedMD®, a leading provider of cloud-based medical practice management and electronic health records solutions.
 
International
 
     Employer Services has a growing presence outside of the United States, where it offers solutions on the basis of both geographic and specific client business needs. In fiscal 2011, ADP continued to expand its GlobalView® offering, making it available in 41 countries. GlobalView is built on the SAP® ERP Human Capital Management and the SAP NetWeaver® platform and offers multinational and global companies an end-to-end outsourcing solution enabling standardized payroll processing and human resource administration. As of the end of fiscal 2011, 105 clients had contracted for GlobalView services, with approximately 934,000 employees being processed. Upon completing the implementation for all these clients, ADP expects to be providing GlobalView services to over 1.6 million employees.
 
     ADP also offers in-country “best of breed” payroll and human resource outsourcing solutions to both small and large clients in over a dozen foreign countries. In each of Canada and Europe, ADP is the leading provider of payroll processing (including full departmental outsourcing) and human resource administration services. Within Europe, Employer Services has business operations supporting its in-country solutions in eight countries: France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. It also offers services in Ireland (from the United Kingdom) and in Portugal (from Spain). In South America (primarily Brazil), Australia and Asia (primarily China), ADP provides traditional service bureau payroll services, and also offers full departmental outsourcing of payroll services. ADP also offers wage and tax collection and remittance services in Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
 
     Through its ADP Streamline® offering, which is available in 70 countries (40 of which are countries in which ADP also offers its GlobalView services), ADP also offers a single point of contact for payroll processing and human resource administration services for multinational companies with small and mid-sized operations. At the end of fiscal 2011, ADP Streamline was used by 384 multinational companies with approximately 107,000 employees being processed.
 
     In fiscal 2011, ADP strengthened its position in Italy by acquiring Byte Software House S.p.A., an Italian-based provider of payroll, personnel administration, time management and human resources products.
 
Professional Employer Organization Services
 
     In the United States, ADP’s TotalSourceSM, the Company’s PEO business, provides approximately 6,100 clients with comprehensive employment administration outsourcing solutions through a co-employment relationship whereby we and our respective clients co-employ the employees who work at the client’s location (“worksite employees”). These comprehensive solutions include payroll, payroll tax filing, HR guidance, 401(k) plan administration, benefits administration, compliance services, health and workers’ compensation coverage and other supplemental benefits for employees. ADP’s TotalSource is the largest PEO in the United States based on the number of paid worksite employees. ADP’s TotalSource has 54 offices located in 23 states and serves approximately 241,000 worksite employees in all 50 states.

Dealer Services
 
     Dealer Services provides integrated dealer management systems (such a system is also known in the industry as a “DMS”), digital marketing solutions, and other business management solutions to auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, recreational vehicle (RV) and heavy equipment retailers in North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region. Approximately 25,000 auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, RV and heavy equipment retailers in nearly 100 countries use ADP’s DMS products, other software applications, networking solutions, data integration, consulting and/or digital marketing services.
 
     Clients use ADP’s DMS solutions to manage core business activities such as accounting, inventory management, factory communications, appointment scheduling, vehicle financing and insurance, sales and service. In addition to its DMS solutions, Dealer Services offers its clients a full suite of additional integrated applications to address each department and functional area of the dealership, including customer relationship management (CRM) applications, front-end sales and marketing/advertising solutions, and an IP Telephony phone system fully-integrated into the DMS to help dealerships drive sales processes and business development initiatives. Dealer Services also provides its dealership clients computer hardware, hardware maintenance services, software support, system design and network consulting services.
 
     Dealer Services also designs, establishes, and maintains communications networks for its dealership clients that allow interactive communications among multiple site locations as well as links between franchised dealers and their vehicle manufacturer franchisors. These networks are used for activities such as new vehicle ordering and status inquiry, warranty submission and validation, parts and vehicle location, dealership customer credit application submission and decision-making, vehicle repair estimation and acquisition of vehicle registration and lien holder information.
 
     In August 2010, ADP acquired The Cobalt Group (Cobalt), a leading provider of digital marketing solutions and services to the automotive industry, including websites, sales leads, email, search, display and social media marketing and management services. These solutions are sold both as retail network marketing platforms in conjunction with the manufacturers of ten leading automotive brands, as well as directly to auto dealerships and regional dealer associations. Cobalt® provides marketing solutions and services to nearly half of the auto dealerships in the United States, as well as to auto dealers in Canada and Mexico. In November 2010, ADP also acquired Kuwaiti-based PACC, a long-time distributor of ADP’s international dealer management system, Autoline®, in the Middle East region.
 
     Dealer Services offers comprehensive training and business process consulting services for many of its business solutions. ADP’s DMS and other software solutions are available as “on-site” applications installed at the dealership or as application service provider (ASP) managed services solutions (in which clients outsource their information technology management activities to Dealer Services).
 
Markets and Marketing Methods
 
     Employer Services offers services in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America (primarily Brazil), Australia and Asia. PEO Services are offered exclusively in the United States. Dealer Services has offerings in North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region. In select emerging markets, Dealer Services uses distributors to sell, implement and support ADP’s solutions.
 
     None of ADP’s major business groups has a single homogenous client base or market. Employer Services and PEO Services have clients from a large variety of industries and markets. Within this client base are concentrations of clients in specific industries. Dealer Services primarily serves automobile dealers, which in turn may be dependent on a relatively small number of auto manufacturers, but also serves truck, powersports (i.e., motorcycle, marine and recreational) and heavy equipment dealers, auto repair shops, used car lots, state departments of motor vehicles and manufacturers of automobiles and trucks. Employer Services also sells to auto dealers. While concentrations of clients exist, no one client or industry group is material to ADP’s overall revenues.
 
6
 

 

     Historically ADP’s businesses have not been overly sensitive to price changes, although in the current economic conditions we have observed, among some clients and groups of clients, an impact on sensitivity to pricing and demand for ADP’s services. ADP enjoys a leadership position in each of its major service offerings and does not believe any major service or business unit in ADP is subject to unique market risk.
 
Competition
 
     The industries in which ADP operates are highly competitive. ADP knows of no reliable statistics by which it can determine the number of its competitors, but it believes that it is one of the largest providers of business outsourcing solutions in the world. Employer Services and PEO Services compete with other independent business outsourcing companies, companies providing enterprise resource planning services, software companies and financial institutions. Captive in-house functions, whereby a company installs and operates its own business processing systems, are another competitive factor in the industries in which Employer Services and PEO Services operate. Dealer Services’ competitors include full service DMS providers such as The Reynolds & Reynolds Company (Dealer Services’ largest DMS competitor in the United States and Canada), DealerTrack, Inc., and companies providing applications and services that compete with Dealer Services’ non-DMS applications and services.
 
     Competition in ADP’s industries is primarily based on service responsiveness, product quality and price. ADP believes that it is very competitive in each of these areas and that there are no material negative factors impacting ADP’s competitive position.
 
Clients and Client Contracts
 
     ADP provides its services to about 570,000 clients. In fiscal 2011, no single client or group of affiliated clients accounted for revenues in excess of 2% of annual consolidated revenues.
 
     Our business is typically characterized by long-term client relationships that result in recurring revenue. ADP is continuously in the process of performing implementation services for new clients. Depending on the service agreement and/or the size of the client, the installation or conversion period for new clients could vary from a short period of time (as little as 24 hours) for an SBS client to a longer period (generally six to twelve months) for a National Account Services or Dealer Services client with multiple deliverables, and in some cases may exceed two years for a large GlobalView client or other large, complicated implementation. Although we monitor sales that have not yet been billed or installed, we do not view this metric as material in light of the recurring nature of our business. This is not a reported number, but it is used by management as a planning tool relating to resources needed to install services, and a means of assessing our performance against the installation timing expectations of our clients.
 
     ADP’s average client retention is estimated at approximately 11 years in Employer Services, approximately 6 years in PEO Services and 16 or more years in Dealer Services, and has not varied significantly from period to period.
 
     ADP’s services are provided under written price quotations or service agreements having varying terms and conditions. No one price quotation or service agreement is material to ADP.
 
Systems Development and Programming
 
     During the fiscal years ended June 30, 2011, 2010 and 2009, ADP invested $674 million, $614 million and $588 million, respectively, from continuing operations, in systems development and programming, migration to new computing technologies and the development of new products and maintenance of our existing technologies, including purchases of new software and software licenses.
 
7
 

 

Product Development
 
     ADP continually upgrades, enhances and expands its existing solutions and services. Generally, no new solution or service has a significant effect on ADP’s revenues or negatively impacts its existing solutions and services, and ADP’s solutions and services have significant remaining life cycles.
 
Licenses
 
     ADP is the licensee under a number of agreements for computer programs and databases. ADP’s business is not dependent upon a single license or group of licenses. Third-party licenses, patents, trademarks and franchises are not material to ADP’s business as a whole.
 
Number of Employees
 
     ADP employed approximately 51,000 persons as of June 30, 2011.
 
Item 1A. Risk Factors
 
     Our businesses routinely encounter and address risks, some of which may cause our future results to be different than we currently anticipate. Risk factors described below represent our current view of some of the most important risks facing our businesses and are important to understanding our business. The following information should be read in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk and the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. This discussion includes a number of forward-looking statements. You should refer to the description of the qualifications and limitations on forward-looking statements in the first paragraph under Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. Unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, reference in this section to “we,” “ours,” “us” or similar terms means ADP, together with its subsidiaries. The level of importance of each of the following risks may vary from time to time, and any of these risks may have a material effect on our business.
 
Changes in laws and regulations may decrease our revenues and earnings
 
     Portions of ADP’s business are subject to governmental regulations. Changes in laws or governmental regulations may decrease our revenues and earnings and may require us to change the manner in which we conduct some aspects of our business. For example, a change in regulations either decreasing the amount of taxes to be withheld or allowing less time to remit taxes to government authorities would adversely impact interest income from investing client funds before such funds are remitted to the applicable taxing authorities or client employees. Changes in taxation requirements in the United States or in other countries could adversely affect our effective tax rate and our net income. Changes in laws that govern the co-employment arrangement between a professional employer organization and its worksite employees may require us to change the manner in which we conduct some aspects of our PEO business.
 
Security and privacy breaches may hurt our business
 
     We store electronically personal information about our clients and employees of our clients. In addition, our retirement services systems maintain investor account information for retirement plans. We have security systems and procedures in place that are designed to protect against any unauthorized access to such information. However, there is still a risk that the security systems and procedures that we maintain may not be successful in protecting against all security breaches. Any significant violations of data privacy could result in the loss of business, litigation and regulatory investigations and penalties that could damage our reputation, and the growth of our business could be adversely affected.
 
8
 

 

Our systems may be subject to disruptions that could adversely affect our business and reputation
 
     Many of our businesses are highly dependent on our ability to process, on a daily basis, a large number of complicated transactions. We rely heavily on our payroll, financial, accounting and other data processing systems. If any of these systems fails to operate properly or becomes disabled even for a brief period of time, we could suffer financial loss, a disruption of our businesses, liability to clients, regulatory intervention or damage to our reputation. We have disaster recovery plans in place to protect our businesses against natural disasters, security breaches, military or terrorist actions, power or communication failures or similar events. Despite our preparations, our disaster recovery plans may not be successful in preventing the loss of client data, service interruptions, disruptions to our operations, or damage to our important facilities.
 
If we fail to adapt our technology to meet client needs and preferences, the demand for our services may diminish
 
     Our businesses operate in industries that are subject to rapid technological advances and changing client needs and preferences. In order to remain competitive and responsive to client demands, we continually upgrade, enhance and expand our existing solutions and services. If we fail to respond successfully to technology challenges, the demand for our services may diminish.
 
Political and economic factors may adversely affect our business and financial results
 
     Trade, monetary and fiscal policies, and political and economic conditions may substantially change, and credit markets may experience periods of constriction and volatility. When there is a slowdown in the economy, employment levels and interest rates may decrease with a corresponding impact on our businesses. Clients may react to worsening conditions by reducing their spending on payroll and other outsourcing services or renegotiating their contracts with us. In addition, the availability of financing, even to borrowers with the highest credit ratings, may limit our access to short-term debt markets to meet liquidity needs required by our Employer Services business.
 
     We invest our client funds in liquid, investment-grade marketable securities, money market securities and other cash equivalents. Nevertheless, our client fund assets are subject to general market, interest rate, credit, and liquidity risks. These risks may be exacerbated, individually or in unison, during periods of unusual financial market volatility.
 
     We are dependent upon various large banks to execute Automated Clearing House and wire transfers as part of our client payroll and tax services. While we have contingency plans in place for bank failures, a systemic shutdown of the banking industry would impede our ability to process funds on behalf of our payroll and tax services clients and could have an adverse impact on our financial results and liquidity.
 
     We derive a significant portion of our revenues and operating income from affiliates operating in non-U.S. dollar currency environments and, as a result, we are exposed to market risk from changes in foreign currency exchange rates that could impact our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.
 
Change in our credit ratings could adversely impact our operations and lower our profitability
 
     The major credit rating agencies periodically evaluate our creditworthiness and have consistently given us their highest long-term debt and commercial paper ratings. Failure to maintain high credit ratings on long-term and short-term debt could increase our cost of borrowing, reduce our ability to obtain intra-day borrowing required by our Employer Services business, and ultimately reduce our client interest revenue.
 
9
 

 

We may be unable to attract and retain qualified personnel
 
     Our ability to grow and provide our clients with competitive services is partially dependent on our ability to attract and retain highly motivated people with the skills to serve our clients. Competition for skilled employees in the outsourcing and other markets in which we operate is intense and if we are unable to attract and retain highly skilled and motivated personnel, results from our operations may suffer.
 
Item 1B. Unresolved Staff Comments
 
     None.
 
Item 2. Properties
 
     ADP owns 13 of its processing/print centers, and 26 other operational offices, sales offices and its corporate headquarters complex in Roseland, New Jersey, which aggregate approximately 3,912,205 square feet. None of ADP’s owned facilities is subject to any material encumbrances. ADP leases space for some of its processing centers, other operational offices and sales offices. All of these leases, which aggregate approximately 5,833,131 square feet in North America, Europe, South America (primarily Brazil), Asia, Australia and Africa, expire at various times up to the year 2036. ADP believes its facilities are currently adequate for their intended purposes and are adequately maintained.
 
Item 3. Legal Proceedings
 
     In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to various claims and litigation. While the outcome of any litigation is inherently unpredictable, the Company believes it has valid defenses with respect to the legal matters pending against it and the Company believes that the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse impact on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPANY AND BUSINESS SEGMENTS
ADP is one of the world’s largest providers of business outsourcing solutions. Leveraging over 60 years of experience, ADP offers a wide range of human resource (“HR”), payroll, tax and benefits administration solutions from a single source. ADP is also a leading provider of integrated computing solutions to auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, recreational vehicle (“RV”) and heavy equipment dealers. The Company’s reportable segments are: Employer Services, PEO Services and Dealer Services. A brief description of each segment’s operations is provided below.
 
Employer Services
Employer Services offers a comprehensive range of HR information, payroll processing, time and labor management, and tax and benefits administration solutions and services, including traditional and Web-based outsourcing solutions, that assist employers in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America (primarily Brazil), Australia and Asia to staff, manage, pay and retain their employees. As of June 30, 2011, Employer Services assisted approximately 537,000 employers with approximately 628,000 payrolls. As of June 30, 2010, Employer Services assisted approximately 520,000 employers with approximately 614,000 payrolls. Employer Services categorizes its services as “payroll and payroll tax” and “beyond payroll.” The payroll and payroll tax business represents the Company’s core payroll processing and payroll tax filing business. The “beyond payroll” business represents services such as time and labor management, benefits administration, retirement recordkeeping and administration, and HR administration services. Within Employer Services, the Company collects client funds and remits such funds to tax authorities for payroll tax filing and payment services and to employees of payroll services clients.
 
PEO Services
PEO Services provides approximately 6,100 small and medium sized businesses with comprehensive employment administration outsourcing solutions through a co-employment relationship, including payroll, payroll tax filing, HR guidance, 401(k) plan administration, benefits administration, compliance services, health and workers’ compensation coverage and other supplemental benefits for employees. Workers’ compensation and employer’s liability deductible reimbursement protection is provided to PEO Services by ADP Indemnity, Inc. (“ADP Indemnity”), a wholly-owned captive insurance company of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. whose results of operations are recorded in the Other segment. Premiums are charged to PEO Services by ADP Indemnity in exchange for which ADP Indemnity provides a policy to PEO Services that reimburses all workers’ compensation and employer’s liability claim expense resulting from worksite employee claims up to a $1 million per occurrence retention. At the beginning of each policy period, ADP Indemnity establishes the premium to be paid by PEO Services required to satisfy the expected ultimate workers’ compensation claims within the $1 million per occurrence retention based upon historical loss experience and the expected workers’ compensation loss estimate as determined by an independent actuary. PEO Services has secured specific per occurrence and aggregate stop loss reinsurance from a wholly-owned and regulated insurance carrier of American International Group, Inc. (“AIG”) that covers all losses in excess of the $1 million per occurrence retention and also any aggregate losses within the $1 million retention that collectively exceed a certain level in each policy year. The cost of the per occurrence and aggregate stop loss insurance is paid by PEO Services directly to AIG’s wholly-owned subsidiary and is incremental to the premium paid to ADP Indemnity. ADP’s PEO Services business, TotalSourceSM, is the largest PEO in the United States based on the number of worksite employees. TotalSourceSM has 54 offices located in 23 states and serves approximately 241,000 worksite employees in all 50 states.

Dealer Services
Dealer Services provides integrated dealer management systems (such a system is also known in the industry as a “DMS”), digital marketing solutions, including website, sales leads, email, search, display and social media marketing services and other business management solutions to auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, RV and heavy equipment retailers in North America, Europe, South Africa, the Middle East, and the Asia Pacific region. Approximately 25,000 auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, RV and heavy equipment retailers in nearly 100 countries use our DMS products, other software applications, networking solutions, data integration, consulting and/or digital marketing services. As of June 30, 2010, Dealer Services provided DMS products to approximately 25,000 retailers in over 90 countries.
 
EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW
 
We are pleased with the strong results we achieved in fiscal 2011 coming out of a challenging year in fiscal 2010 and remain optimistic as we continue to see strengthening in our core business model, significant improvements in our key business metrics and strong growth from our strategic acquisitions. Our continued investment in product innovation, sales force and client service has had a positive impact and remains in support of our five-point strategic growth program, which consists of:
  • Strengthening the core business;
     
  • Growing our differentiated HR Business Process Outsourcing (“BPO”) offerings;
     
  • Focusing on international expansion;
     
  • Entering adjacent markets that leverage the core; and
     
  • Expanding pretax margin
Consolidated revenues from continuing operations in fiscal 2011 increased 11%, to $9,879.5 million, as compared to $8,927.7 million in fiscal 2010. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and net earnings from continuing operations increased 4%. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 5%, to $2.52 in fiscal 2011, from $2.40 per share in fiscal 2010, on fewer shares outstanding. Fiscal 2010 included a favorable tax item that reduced the provision for income taxes by $12.2 million. Excluding this favorable tax item in fiscal 2010, net earnings from continuing operations increased 5% and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 6% from $2.37 to $2.52. In fiscal 2011 we continued to enhance value to our shareholders by returning excess cash of $1.4 billion through dividends and our share buyback program while also investing $776 million in new acquisitions.
 
Each of our business segments has continued to demonstrate core strength. Employer Services’ revenues increased 8% to $6,861.7 million, PEO Services’ revenues increased 17% to $1,543.9 million, and Dealer Services’ revenues increased 24% to $1,494.4 million in fiscal 2011. In the United States, revenues from our traditional payroll and beyond payroll Employer Services businesses grew 3% and 13%, respectively, in fiscal 2011 aided in part by acquisitions. Pays per control, which represents the number of employees on our clients' payrolls as measured on a same-store-sales basis utilizing a subset of over 125,000 payrolls of small to large businesses that are reflective of a broad range of U.S. geographic regions, increased 2.4 % for the twelve months ended June 30, 2011. Our client retention level continued the improvement in trends seen from fiscal 2010 with a gain of 1.2 percentage points worldwide over last year’s level, ending at 91% for the year. The growth in PEO Services’ revenues is primarily due to a 12% increase in the average number of worksite employees as well as an increase in benefit costs and state unemployment insurance rates. Dealer Services’ revenues growth of 24% resulted mainly from the effects of the Cobalt acquisition in August 2010. Excluding the Cobalt acquisition, Dealer Services’ revenues grew 3%.
 
Employer Services’ and PEO Services’ new business sales, which represent annualized recurring revenues anticipated from sales orders to new and existing clients, grew 9% worldwide, to approximately $1,082.1 million in fiscal 2011. Dealer Services’ new business sales showed continued strength with growth primarily as a result of the recent acquisition of Cobalt.
 
Consolidated interest on funds held for clients decreased approximately 0.5%, or $2.7 million, to $540.1 million from $542.8 million in fiscal 2010. The decrease in the consolidated interest on funds held for clients resulted from the decrease in the average interest rate earned to 3.2% in fiscal 2011 as compared to 3.6 % in fiscal 2010 with such decreases having been offset by 11% growth in average client funds balances resulting from our positive Employer Services metrics.

The safety, liquidity, and diversification of our clients’ funds are the foremost objectives of our investment strategy. We continue to promote this strategy by investing in a prudent and conservative manner in accordance with our investment guidelines with a predominant focus on AAA/AA securities. Our investment portfolio does not contain any asset-backed securities with underlying collateral of sub-prime mortgages, alternative-A mortgages, sub-prime auto loans or home equity loans, collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations, credit default swaps, asset-backed commercial paper, derivatives, auction rate securities, structured investment vehicles, or non-investment-grade fixed-income securities. We own senior tranches of fixed rate credit card, rate reduction, and auto loan asset-backed securities, secured predominately by prime collateral. All collateral on asset-backed securities is performing as expected. In addition, we own senior debt directly issued by Federal Home Loan Banks, Federal Farm Credit Banks, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (“Freddie Mac”) and Federal National Mortgage Association (“Fannie Mae”). We do not own subordinated debt, preferred stock, or common stock of any of these agencies. We do own AAA rated mortgage-backed securities, which represent an undivided beneficial ownership interest in a group or pool of one or more residential mortgages. These securities are collateralized by the cash flows of 15-year and 30-year residential mortgages and are guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as to the timely payment of principal and interest. Our client funds investment strategy is structured to allow us to average our way through an interest rate cycle by laddering investments out to five years (in the case of the extended portfolio) and out to ten years (in the case of the long portfolio). This investment strategy is supported by our short-term financing arrangements necessary to satisfy short-term funding requirements relating to client funds obligations. In addition, our strong long-term and short-term credit ratings have helped us maintain uninterrupted access to the U.S. commercial paper market.
 
Our financial condition and balance sheet remain solid at June 30, 2011, with cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $1,523.7 million. Our net cash flows provided by operating activities were $1,705.8 million in fiscal 2011, as compared to $1,682.1 million in fiscal 2010. This increase in cash flows from fiscal 2010 to fiscal 2011 was due to positive year over year variances in the timing of our tax related estimated cash payments and receipts, offset by higher bonus payments, and increased pension plan contributions. The increase in cash used in investing activities is due to the timing of purchases of and proceeds from the sales or maturities of marketable securities, as compared to the prior year. The increase in cash provided by financing activities is primarily due to the timing of cash received and payments made related to client funds, as compared to the prior year.
 
We have a strong business model with a high percentage of recurring revenues, excellent margins, the ability to generate consistent, healthy cash flows, strong client retention, and low capital expenditure requirements. Additionally, ADP has continued to return excess cash to our shareholders. In the last five fiscal years, we have reduced the Company’s common stock outstanding by approximately 13% through share buybacks, partially offset by common stock issued under employee stock-based compensation programs. We have also raised the dividend payout per share for 36 consecutive years.

       from continuing operations   $ 2.52     $ 2.40     $ 0.12   5 %

Total Revenues
Our consolidated revenues increased 11% to $9,879.5 million in fiscal 2011, from $8,927.7 million in fiscal 2010, due to an increase in revenues in Employer Services of 8%, or $485.0 million, to $6,861.7 million, PEO Services of 17%, or $227.1 million, to $1,543.9 million, and Dealer Services of 24%, or $288.5 million, to $1,494.4 million. In addition, revenues increased $19.6 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Total revenue would have increased approximately 6.3% without the impact of acquisitions.
 
Total Expenses
Our total expenses in fiscal 2011 increased $897.7 million, to $8,063.4 million, from $7,165.7 million in fiscal 2010. The increase in our consolidated expenses was due to an increase in operating expenses of $623.7 million, an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses of $195.9 million and an increase in systems development and programming expenses of $63.3 million.
 
Our total costs of revenues increased 14%, to $5,731.5 million in fiscal 2011, as compared to fiscal 2010 due to an increase in operating expenses of $623.7 million and an increase in systems development and programming expenses of $63.3 million.
 
17
 

 

Operating expenses increased $623.7 million, or 15%, in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010 due to the increase in revenues described above, including the increases in PEO Services, which has pass-through costs that are re-billable and which includes costs for benefits coverage, workers’ compensation coverage and state unemployment taxes for worksite employees. These pass-through costs were $1,182.2 million in fiscal 2011, which included costs for benefits coverage of $937.8 million and costs for workers’ compensation and payment of state unemployment taxes of $244.4 million. These pass-through costs were $988.5 million in fiscal 2010, which included costs for benefits coverage of $811.5 million and costs for workers’ compensation and payment of state unemployment taxes of $176.9 million. The increase in operating expenses is also due to operating expenses related to businesses acquired of $230.6 million, and higher expenses in Employer Services of $47.4 million related to increased service costs for investment in client-facing associates. Additionally, operating expenses increased due to the settlement of a PEO Services state unemployment matter that reduced operating expenses $9.2 million in fiscal 2010. Lastly, operating expenses increased $5.6 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
 
Systems development and programming expenses increased $63.3 million, or 12%, in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010, due to businesses acquired of $42.2 million and higher development expenses.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $195.9 million, or 9%, in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. The increase in expenses was due to higher selling expenses of $75.6 million resulting from increases in headcount over prior year levels coupled with an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses of acquired businesses of $96.1 million, an increase in stock-based compensation expense of $5.9 million, and an increase in technology related security expenses of $8.1 million. Additionally, selling, general and administrative expenses increased $5.6 million due to changes in foreign currency rates.
 
Interest expense remained flat in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. In both fiscal 2011 and 2010, the Company’s average borrowings under the commercial paper program were $1.6 billion, at weighted average interest rates of 0.2%. In fiscal 2011 and 2010, the Company’s average borrowings under the reverse repurchase program were approximately $505.2 million and $425.0 million, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.4% and 0.2%, respectively, which resulted in an increase of $1.1 million in interest expense.

Other income, net, increased $15.4 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. This increase was mainly due to an increase in realized gains on available-for-sale securities of $23.0 million, and a decrease in realized losses on available-for-sale securities of $9.8 million, which together increased other income, net, $32.8 million. Such amounts were offset in fiscal 2011 by an $11.7 million impairment loss on assets held for sale and a $10.0 million decrease in interest income on corporate funds resulting from flat average interest rates at 2.6%, as compared to the prior year, coupled with declining average daily corporate funds balances which decreased from $3.8 billion in fiscal 2010 to $3.5 billion in fiscal 2011.
 
Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased $69.5 million, or 4%, from $1,863.2 million in fiscal 2010 to $1,932.7 million in fiscal 2011 due to the increase in revenues partially offset by the increase in expenses discussed above. Overall margin decreased approximately 130 basis points in fiscal 2011 with approximately 90 basis points of the margin decline attributable to acquisitions.
 
18
 

 

Provision for Income Taxes
The effective tax rate in fiscal 2011 and 2010 was 35.1% and 35.2%, respectively. The reduction in the effective tax rate for fiscal 2011 is due to the resolution of certain tax matters in fiscal 2010 that resulted in a decrease to the effective tax rate of 0.7 percentage points for that period, offset by a decrease in federal and state income tax expense and a favorable mix of earnings in foreign jurisdictions in fiscal 2011.
 
Net Earnings from Continuing Operations and Diluted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations
Net earnings from continuing operations increased $46.9 million to $1,254.2 million in fiscal 2011, from $1,207.3 million in fiscal 2010, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 5%, to $2.52. The increase in net earnings from continuing operations in fiscal 2011 reflects the increase in earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and the impact of the tax matters discussed above. The increase in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in fiscal 2011 reflects the increase in earnings from continuing operations and the impact of the tax matters discussed above coupled with the effects of fewer shares outstanding.
 
The following table reconciles the Company’s results for fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2010 to adjusted results that exclude the impact of favorable tax items. The Company uses certain adjusted results, among other measures, to evaluate the Company’s operating performance in the absence of certain items and for planning and forecasting of future periods. The Company believes that the adjusted results provide relevant and useful information for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company’s management and improves their ability to understand the Company’s operating performance. Since adjusted earnings from continuing operations and adjusted diluted EPS are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), they should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, earnings from continuing operations and diluted EPS from continuing operations, respectively, and they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.

Total Revenues
Our consolidated revenues grew 1% to $8,927.7 million in fiscal 2010, from $8,838.4 million in fiscal 2009, due to an increase in revenues in PEO Services of 11%, or $131.0 million, to $1,316.8 million, and fluctuations in foreign currency rates, which increased revenues $68.2 million. Such increases were partially offset by a decrease in Dealer Services revenues of 3%, or $36.2 million, to $1,205.9 million, and a decrease in the consolidated interest on funds held for clients of $67.0 million. The decrease in the consolidated interest on funds held for clients resulted from the decrease in the average interest rate earned to 3.6% in fiscal 2010, as compared to 4.0% in fiscal 2009. Employer Services’ revenues were flat in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009.
 
Total Expenses
Our total expenses in fiscal 2010 increased $119.4 million, to $7,165.7 million, from $7,046.3 million in fiscal 2009. The increase in our consolidated expenses for fiscal 2010 was due to our increase in revenues, higher pass-through costs associated with our PEO Services business of $113.7 million, an increase of $48.6 million related to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, an increase of $14.7 million related to additional domestic service personnel, and incremental investments in our products. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in severance expenses of $76.8 million, a decrease in stock-based compensation expense of $28.4 million, and our cost savings initiatives, which included lower compensation from reduced headcount and a reduction in travel and entertainment expenses.
 
Our total costs of revenues increased $207.0 million to $5,029.7 million in fiscal 2010, as compared to fiscal 2009 due to the increase in operating expenses discussed below.
 
20
 

 

Operating expenses increased $190.2 million, or 5%, in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009, due to an increase in PEO Services pass-through costs that are re-billable, including costs for benefits coverage, workers’ compensation coverage and state unemployment taxes for worksite employees. These pass-through costs were $988.5 million in fiscal 2010, which included costs for benefits coverage of $811.5 million and costs for workers’ compensation and payment of state unemployment taxes of $176.9 million. These costs were $874.8 million in fiscal 2009, which included costs for benefits coverage of $724.3 million and costs for workers’ compensation and payment of state unemployment taxes of $150.5 million. In addition, operating expenses increased $30.1 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates and $14.7 million due to additional service personnel. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $8.9 million in stock-based compensation expense and our cost savings initiatives, which included lower compensation from reduced headcount and a reduction in travel and entertainment expenses.
 
Systems development and programming expenses increased $15.6 million, or 3%, in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009 due to incremental investments in our products during fiscal 2010. Additionally, systems development and programming expenses increased $2.1 million due to expenses of acquired businesses and $3.6 million due to the impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. These increases were partially offset by a $5.0 million decline in stock-based compensation expense.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $62.9 million, or 3%, in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. The decrease in expenses was due to a decrease in severance expenses of $76.8 million, a reduction in expenses of $31.1 million related to cost saving initiatives, which included lower compensation from reduced headcount and a reduction in travel and entertainment expenses, and a decline of $14.5 million in stock-based compensation expense. In addition, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased due to the $15.5 million charge we recorded during fiscal 2009 to increase our allowance for doubtful accounts as a result of an increase in estimated credit losses related to our notes receivable from auto, truck and powersports dealers. These decreases in expenses were partially offset by an asset impairment charge of $6.8 million recorded during fiscal 2010 as a result of the announcement by GM that it will shut down its Saturn division. In addition, there was an increase of $13.7 million due to the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and an increase of $9.5 million in expenses of acquired businesses.
 
Interest expense decreased $24.7 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. In fiscal 2010 and 2009, the Company’s average borrowings under the commercial paper program were $1.6 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.2% and 1.0%, respectively, which resulted in a decrease of $15.8 million in interest expense. In fiscal 2010 and 2009, the Company’s average borrowings under the reverse repurchase program were approximately $425.0 million and $425.9 million, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.2% and 1.3%, respectively, which resulted in a decrease of $4.6 million in interest expense.

Other income, net decreased $6.8 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009 due to a $35.4 million decrease in interest income on corporate funds, a $14.4 million impairment loss on available-for-sale securities recorded during fiscal 2010, and a $2.3 million net loss on sales of buildings in fiscal 2010 as compared to a $2.2 million net gain on sales of buildings in fiscal 2009. Interest income on corporate funds decreased as a result of lower average interest rates partially offset by higher average daily corporate funds balances. Average interest rates decreased from 3.6% in fiscal 2009 to 2.6% in fiscal 2010. Average daily balances increased from $3.7 billion in fiscal 2009 to $3.8 billion in fiscal 2010. These decreases in other income were partially offset by a gain on the investment in Reserve Fund of $15.2 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to a loss on the investment in the Reserve Fund of $18.3 million in fiscal 2009 as well as a $14.0 million increase in net realized gains on available-for-sale securities.

Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes decreased $36.9 million, or 2%, from $1,900.1 million in fiscal 2009 to $1,863.2 million in fiscal 2010 because the increase in revenues was more than offset by the increase in expenses and decrease in other income, net discussed above. Overall margin decreased 60 basis points in fiscal 2010.
 
Provision for Income Taxes
The effective tax rate in fiscal 2010 and 2009 was 35.2% and 30.3%, respectively. For fiscal 2010, the effective tax rate includes a reduction in the provision for income taxes of $12.2 million related to the resolution of certain tax matters, which decreased the effective tax rate 0.7 percentage points. For fiscal 2009, the effective tax rate includes a reduction in the provision for income taxes of $120.0 million related to an Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) audit settlement and the settlement of a state tax matter, which decreased the effective tax rate 6.3 percentage points.
 
Net Earnings from Continuing Operations and Diluted Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations
Net earnings from continuing operations decreased $117.8 million to $1,207.3 million in fiscal 2010, from $1,325.1 million in fiscal 2009, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 8% to $2.40. The decrease in net earnings from continuing operations in fiscal 2010 reflects the decrease in earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and the impact of the tax matters discussed above. The decrease in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in fiscal 2010 reflects the decrease in earnings from continuing operations and the impact of the tax matters discussed above partially offset by the impact of fewer shares outstanding due to the repurchase of 18.2 million shares in fiscal 2010 and 13.8 million shares in fiscal 2009.
 
The following table reconciles the Company’s results for fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009 to adjusted results that exclude the impact of favorable tax items. The Company uses certain adjusted results, among other measures, to evaluate the Company’s operating performance in the absence of certain items and for planning and forecasting of future periods. The Company believes that the adjusted results provide relevant and useful information for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company’s management and improves their ability to understand the Company’s operating performance. Since adjusted earnings from continuing operations and adjusted diluted EPS are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), they should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, earnings from continuing operations and diluted EPS from continuing operations, respectively, and they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.

The fiscal 2010 and 2009 reportable segments’ revenues and earnings from continuing operations before income taxes have been adjusted to reflect updated fiscal 2011 budgeted foreign exchange rates. This adjustment is made for management purposes so that the reportable segments’ revenues are presented on a consistent basis without the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. This adjustment is a reconciling item to revenues and earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and is eliminated in consolidation.
 
Certain revenues and expenses are charged to the reportable segments at a standard rate for management reasons. Other costs are charged to the reportable segments based on management’s responsibility for the applicable costs. 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 insurance coverage for PEO Services worksite employees), non-recurring gains and losses, miscellaneous processing services, such as customer financing transactions, and certain expenses that have not been charged to the reportable segments, such as stock-based compensation expense.
 
In addition, the reconciling items include an adjustment 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 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 allocation is a reconciling item to our reportable segments’ revenues and earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and is eliminated in consolidation.
 
Finally, the reportable segments’ results also include a cost of capital charge related to the funding of acquisitions and other investments. This charge is a reconciling item to earnings from continuing operations before income taxes and is eliminated in consolidation.
 
Employer Services
 
Fiscal 2011 Compared to Fiscal 2010
 
Revenues
Employer Services' revenues increased $485.0 million, or 8%, to $6,861.7 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. Revenues for our Employer Services business would have increased approximately 5.5% without the impact of acquisitions.
 
Revenues from our payroll and tax filing business increased 3% in fiscal 2011 due to higher average client funds balances, improved worldwide client retention and an increase in pays per control in the U.S. We credit Employer Services with interest on client funds at a standard rate of 4.5%; therefore, Employer Services' results are not influenced by changes in interest rates. Interest on client funds recorded within the Employer Services segment increased $73.0 million in fiscal 2011 due to the increase in average client funds balances from $15.0 billion to $16.6 billion. Our worldwide client retention rate increased 1.2 percentage points in fiscal 2011 to 91.1%, from 89.9% in fiscal 2010. Pays per control, which represents the number of employees on our clients' payrolls as measured on a same-store-sales basis utilizing a subset of over 125,000 payrolls of small to large businesses that are reflective of a broad range of U.S. geographic regions, increased 2.4% for the twelve months ended June 30, 2011. Revenues from our “beyond payroll” services increased 13% in fiscal 2011 due to an increase in the number of clients utilizing our HR Benefits, Compliance and Retirement Services solutions, and approximately 3% growth related to acquisitions.

Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Employer Services’ earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased $110.9 million to $1,831.5 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. The increase was due to the increase in revenues of $485.0 million discussed above, which was partially offset by an increase in expenses of $374.1 million. In addition to an increase in expenses related to increased revenues, expenses increased in fiscal 2011 due to increases in sales and service headcount over fiscal 2010 levels coupled with the effects of acquisitions. Overall margin decreased from 27.0% to 26.7% in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010, with approximately 110 basis points of margin decline attributable to acquisitions.
 
Fiscal 2010 Compared to Fiscal 2009
 
Revenues
Employer Services' revenues decreased $1.9 million to $6,376.7 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. Revenues from our payroll and tax filing business declined 4% in fiscal 2010, due to a decline in pays per control and a decline in the number of payrolls processed, partially offset by pricing increases. Revenues from our “beyond payroll” services increased 6% in fiscal 2010, due to an increase in the number of clients utilizing our COBRA and HR Benefits solutions, as well as an increase in revenues related to our Retirement Services business due to an increase in the market value of the assets under management. Pays per control, which represents the number of employees on our clients’ payrolls as measured on a same-store-sales basis utilizing a subset of approximately 130,000 payrolls of small to large businesses that are reflective of a broad range of U.S. geographic regions, decreased 3.4% in fiscal 2010. Worldwide client retention improved 40 basis points, to 89.9%, and pricing increases contributed approximately 1% to our revenue growth for fiscal 2010. In addition, interest on client funds recorded within the Employer Services segment increased $2.7 million in fiscal 2010 due to a slight increase in average client funds balances. We credit Employer Services with interest on client funds at a standard rate of 4.5%; therefore, Employer Services’ results are not influenced by changes in interest rates.
 
Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Employer Services’ earnings from continuing operations before income taxes decreased $34.8 million to $1,720.6 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. The decrease was due to an increase in expenses of $32.9 million and the $1.9 million decrease in revenues discussed above. The increase in expenses can be attributed to $16.9 million of incremental investments in our products and an increase of $14.7 million related to increased service costs for investment in client-facing associates. These increases in expense were partially offset by lower expenses resulting from our cost savings initiatives, which included headcount reductions at the end of fiscal 2009 and a reduction in travel and entertainment expenses.
 
PEO Services
 
Fiscal 2011 Compared to Fiscal 2010
 
Revenues
PEO Services’ revenues increased $227.1 million, or 17%, to $1,543.9 million in fiscal 2011, as compared to fiscal 2010, due to a 12% increase in the average number of worksite employees. The increase in the average number of worksite employees as compared to fiscal 2010 was due to an increase in the number of new clients and a 1.1 percentage point improvement in our client retention rate from 82.9% in fiscal 2010 to 84.0% in fiscal 2011. Revenues associated with benefits coverage, workers’ compensation coverage, and state unemployment taxes for worksite employees that were billed to our clients increased $184.9 million due to the increase in the average number of worksite employees as well as increases in health care costs. Administrative revenues, which represent the fees for our services and are billed based upon a percentage of wages related to worksite employees, increased $33.0 million, or 14%, in fiscal 2011 due to the increase in the number of average worksite employees.
 
25
 

 

We credit PEO Services with interest on client funds at a standard rate of 4.5%; therefore, PEO Services’ results are not influenced by changes in interest rates. Interest on client funds recorded within the PEO Services segment increased $0.5 million in fiscal 2011 due to the increase in average client funds balances as a result of increased PEO Services new business and growth in our existing client base. Average client funds balances were $0.2 billion in both fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2010.
 
Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
PEO Services’ earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased $10.1 million, or 8%, to $137.4 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased due to growth in earnings related to the increase in the number of average worksite employees. The increase was partially offset by the settlement of a state unemployment tax matter, which increased earnings before income taxes $9.2 million in fiscal 2010. Overall margin decreased to 8.9% in fiscal 2011 from 9.7% in fiscal 2010 due to a 70 basis point decline pertaining to the settlement of a fiscal 2010 state unemployment tax matter.
 
Fiscal 2010 Compared to Fiscal 2009
 
Revenues
PEO Services’ revenues increased $131.0 million, or 11%, to $1,316.8 million in fiscal 2010, as compared to fiscal 2009, due to a 5% increase in the average number of worksite employees. The increase in the average number of worksite employees as compared to fiscal 2009 was due to an increase in the number of clients. Revenues associated with benefits coverage, workers’ compensation coverage and state unemployment taxes for worksite employees that were billed to our clients increased $113.7 million due to the increase in the average number of worksite employees, as well as increases in health care costs. Administrative revenues, which represent the fees for our services and are billed based upon a percentage of wages related to worksite employees, increased $11.8 million, or 5%, in fiscal 2010, due to the increase in the number of average worksite employees.
 
We credit PEO Services with interest on client funds at a standard rate of 4.5%; therefore, PEO Services’ results are not influenced by changes in interest rates. Interest on client funds recorded within the PEO Services segment increased $0.7 million in fiscal 2010 due to the increase in average client funds balances as a result of increased PEO Services new business and growth in our existing client base. Average client funds balances were $0.2 billion in both fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009.
 
Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
PEO Services’ earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased $9.7 million, or 8%, to $127.3 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes grew due to the increase in revenues described above, net of the related cost of providing benefits coverage, workers’ compensation coverage and payment of state unemployment taxes for worksite employees that are included in costs of revenues. In fiscal 2010, there was an increase in costs associated with providing benefits coverage for worksite employees of $87.2 million and costs associated with workers’ compensation and payment of state unemployment taxes for worksite employees of $26.5 million. In addition, earnings before income taxes increased $9.2 million due to the settlement of a state unemployment tax matter. Such increases in earnings before income taxes were offset by price concessions and higher pass-through costs related to state unemployment taxes.
 
Dealer Services
 
Fiscal 2011 Compared to Fiscal 2010
 
Revenues
Dealer Services' revenues increased $288.5 million, or 24%, to $1,494.4 million in fiscal 2011. Revenues for our Dealer Services business would have increased approximately 3% for fiscal 2011 without the impact of acquisitions, which increased revenues $250.7 million. Revenues increased $37.8 million due to new clients, improved client retention, and growth in our key products. We had growth in both our North American and International client retention rates with each growing 3.9 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively, to 88.6% and 92.8%, in fiscal 2011. The growth in our key products was driven by increased users of application service provider (ASP) managed services, customer relationship management (“CRM”) solutions and growth in hosted IP telephony as well as an increase in transaction revenues due to higher credit report checks and vehicle registrations.

Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Dealer Services' earnings from continuing operations before income taxes increased $32.9 million, or 16%, to $234.4 million in fiscal 2011. The increase was due to the increase in revenues of $288.5 million discussed above and was partially offset by higher compensation costs. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes also increased due to an asset impairment charge of $6.8 million recorded in fiscal 2010 resulting from the announcement by GM that it would shut down its Saturn division. Overall margin decreased from 16.7% to 15.7% in fiscal 2011 as compared to fiscal 2010, which includes approximately 240 basis points of margin decline related to acquisitions, partially offset by the prior year effects of the Saturn impairment charge.
 
Fiscal 2010 Compared to Fiscal 2009
 
Revenues
Dealer Services' revenues decreased $36.2 million, or 3%, to $1,205.9 million in fiscal 2010. Revenues for our Dealer Services business would have declined approximately 4% for fiscal 2010 without the impact of acquisitions. Revenues declined $112.9 million due to client losses as a result of dealership closings, cancellation of services, and continued pressure on dealerships to reduce costs. In addition, revenues decreased $25.1 million due to lower international software license fees and $5.3 million due to lower Credit Check and Computerized Vehicle Registration (“CVR”) transaction volume. These decreases in revenues were offset by a $90.0 million increase in revenues from new clients and growth in our key products during fiscal 2010. The growth in our key products was driven by increased users for ASP managed services, growth in our CRM solutions, and new network and hosted IP telephony installations.
 
Earnings from Continuing Operations before Income Taxes
Dealer Services' earnings from continuing operations before income taxes decreased $13.7 million, or 6%, to $201.5 million in fiscal 2010. The decrease was due to the decline in revenues of $36.2 million discussed above, which was partially offset by a decrease in expenses of $22.5 million. The decrease in expenses was due to certain cost saving initiatives, including headcount reductions at the end of fiscal 2009 and a reduction in travel and entertainment expenses, offset by an asset impairment charge of $6.8 million as a result of the announcement by GM that it will shut down its Saturn division. Overall margin decreased from 17.3% to 16.7% in fiscal 2010 as compared to fiscal 2009, due to the effects of the Saturn fiscal 2010 impairment charge.
 
Other
 
The primary components of the “Other” segment are miscellaneous processing services, such as customer financing transactions, non-recurring gains and losses, results of operations of ADP Indemnity, and certain expenses that have not been charged to the reportable segments, such as stock-based compensation expense.
 
Stock-based compensation expense was $76.3 million, $67.6 million, and $96.0 million in fiscal 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
ADP Indemnity provides workers’ compensation and employer’s liability deductible reimbursement insurance protection for PEO Services worksite employees up to a $1 million per occurrence retention. PEO Services has secured specific per occurrence and aggregate stop loss reinsurance from a wholly-owned and regulated insurance carrier of AIG that covers all losses in excess of the $1 million per occurrence retention and also any aggregate losses within the $1 million retention that collectively exceed a certain level in each policy year. We utilize historical loss experience and actuarial judgment to determine the estimated claim liability for the PEO Services business. Premiums are charged to PEO Services to cover the claims expected to be incurred by the PEO Services’ worksite employees. Changes in estimated ultimate incurred losses are recognized by ADP Indemnity. In each of fiscal 2011, 2010, and 2009, ADP Indemnity recorded an increase in total claims reserves related to changes in these estimated losses for all policy years of $39.2 million, $19.5 million and $1.6 million, respectively. Significant contributing factors to the increase in reserves have been the rapid growth of our PEO Services business in states with relatively higher workers’ compensation claim costs, adverse claim development, higher medical costs, and longer claim duration.
 
Our net gains on the sale of available-for-sale securities were $34.4 million and $1.6 million in each of fiscal 2011 and 2010 respectively, coupled with a net loss of $12.4 million in 2009.

FINANCIAL CONDITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
At June 30, 2011, cash and marketable securities were $1,523.7 million, stockholders’ equity was $6,010.4 million, and the ratio of long-term debt-to-equity was 0.6%. Working capital before funds held for clients and client funds obligations was $1,252.2 million, as compared to $1,568.6 million at June 30, 2010. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in cash and cash equivalents and other current assets together with the net effect of an increase in accounts receivable, accrued expenses and other, and accrued payroll and payroll related expenses.
 
Our principal sources of liquidity for operations are derived from cash generated through operations and through corporate cash and marketable securities on hand. We continued to generate positive cash flows from operations during fiscal 2011, and we held approximately $1.5 billion of cash and marketable securities at June 30, 2011. We also have the ability to generate cash through our financing arrangements under our U.S. short-term commercial paper program and our U.S. and Canadian short-term repurchase agreements to meet short-term funding requirements related to client funds obligations.
 
Net cash flows provided by operating activities were $1,705.8 million in fiscal 2011, as compared to $1,682.1 million in fiscal 2010. The increase in net cash flows provided by operating activities was due to a positive year over year variance in the timing of our tax related estimated cash payments and receipts of $118.4 million, offset by an increase in bonus payments of $47.0 million, and an increase in pension plan contributions of $45.8 million. The balance of the increase was due to timing of cash collections related to trade accounts receivable partially offset by the timing of cash payments related to accounts payable.
 
Net cash flows used in investing activities were $7,340.6 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to $2,379.5 million in fiscal 2010. The increase in net cash flows used in investing activities was due to the increase of spend relating to acquisitions of businesses, net of cash acquired, which resulted in a net decrease to cash flows of $676.0 million, the timing of purchases of and proceeds from the sales or maturities of corporate and client funds marketable securities which resulted in a net decrease to cash flows of $1,026.0 million, and the increase in restricted cash and cash equivalents held to satisfy client funds obligations which resulted in a net decrease to cash flows of $3,197.7 million.
 
Net cash flows provided by financing activities were $5,339.3 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to $89.0 million in fiscal 2010. The increase was due to the net change in client funds obligations of $4,270.5 million as a result of the timing of cash received and payments made related to client funds, a $730.0 million decrease in repayments of previously issued commercial paper and a $237.2 million increase primarily due to higher cash proceeds from the exercises of stock options. We issued 11.4 million and 6.2 million treasury shares, respectively, related to option exercises in fiscal 2011 and 2010.
 
Our U.S. short-term funding requirements related to client funds are sometimes obtained through a short-term commercial paper program. In August 2011, the Company increased the U.S. short-term commercial paper program to provide for the issuance of up to $6.75 billion in aggregate maturity value, up from $6.25 billion in fiscal 2011. Our commercial paper program is rated A-1+ by Standard and 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. In both fiscal 2011 and 2010, our average borrowings were $1.6 billion, at weighted average interest rates of 0.2%. The weighted average maturity of our commercial paper was less than two days in both fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2010. Throughout fiscal 2011, we had full access to our U.S. short-term funding requirements related to client funds obligations. At June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010, there was no commercial paper outstanding.
 
28
 

 

Our 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. These agreements generally have terms ranging from overnight to up to five business days. We have $2 billion available to us on a committed basis under these reverse repurchase agreements. In fiscal 2011 and 2010, we had average outstanding balances under reverse repurchase agreements of $505.2 million and $425.0 million, respectively, at weighted average interest rates of 0.4% and 0.2%, respectively. We have successfully borrowed through the use of reverse repurchase agreements on an as needed basis to meet short-term funding requirements related to client funds obligations. At June 30, 2011 and 2010 we had no outstanding obligations under reverse repurchase agreements.
 
In June 2011, we entered into a $2.0 billion, 364-day credit facility with a group of lenders. The 364-day facility replaced our prior $2.5 billion 364-day facility. In addition, we entered into 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 four-year facility replaced our prior $2.25 billion five-year credit facility, which expired in June 2011. We also have an existing three-year $1.5 billion credit facility maturing in June 2013 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 the 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 to provide funding for general corporate purposes, if necessary. The Company had no borrowings through June 30, 2011 under the credit agreements. We believe that we currently meet all conditions set forth in the revolving credit agreements to borrow there under, and we are not aware of any conditions that would prevent us from borrowing part or all of the $6.75 billion available to us under the revolving credit agreements.
 
Our investment portfolio does not contain any asset-backed securities with underlying collateral of subprime mortgages, alternative-A mortgages, sub-prime auto loans or sub-prime home equity loans, collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations, credit default swaps, asset-backed commercial paper, derivatives, auction rate securities, structured investment vehicles or non-investment grade fixed-income securities. We own AAA rated senior tranches of fixed rate credit card, rate reduction, auto loan and other asset-backed securities, secured predominately by prime collateral. All collateral on asset-backed securities is performing as expected. In addition, we own senior debt directly issued by Federal Home Loan Banks, Federal Farm Credit Banks, Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation ("Freddie Mac") and Federal National Mortgage Association ("Fannie Mae"). We do not own subordinated debt, preferred stock or common stock of any of these agencies. We do own AAA rated mortgage-backed securities, which represent an undivided beneficial ownership interest in a group or pool of one or more residential mortgages. These securities are collateralized by the cash flows of 15-year and 30-year residential mortgages and are guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as to the timely payment of principal and interest. Our client funds investment strategy is structured to allow us to average our way through an interest rate cycle by laddering the maturities of our investments out to five years (in the case of the extended portfolio) and out to ten years (in the case of the long portfolio). This investment strategy is supported by our short-term financing arrangements necessary to satisfy short-term funding requirement relating to client funds obligations.
 
On August 5, 2011, Standard & Poor’s (S&P”) lowered the long-term sovereign credit rating of U.S. Government debt obligations from AAA to AA+. On August 8, 2011, S&P also downgraded the long-term credit ratings of U.S. government-sponsored enterprises. As described above, in Notes 5 and 6 to the consolidated financial statements, and in our discussion of Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk, we hold U.S. Treasury and direct obligations of U.S. government agencies and related securities. We do not have the intent of selling these securities nor are we obligated to sell them as a result of the credit downgrade. Furthermore, we continue to believe that we will be able to recover the underlying payments of principal and interest due thereon.
 
Capital expenditures for continuing operations in fiscal 2011 were $184.8 million, as compared to $90.2 million in fiscal 2010 and $167.6 million in fiscal 2009. The capital expenditures in fiscal 2011 related to our data center and other facility improvements were made to support our operations. We expect capital expenditures in the year ending June 30, 2012 (“fiscal 2012”) to be between $160 million and $180 million.

(1)       These amounts represent the principal repayments of our debt and are included on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. See Note 12 to the consolidated financial statements for additional information about our debt and related matters. The estimated interest payments due by corresponding period above are $0.2 million, $0.3 million, $0.2 million, and $0.2 million, respectively, which have been excluded.
 
(2)   Included in these amounts are various facilities and equipment leases and software license agreements. We enter into operating leases in the normal course of business relating to facilities and equipment, as well as the licensing of software. The majority of our lease agreements have fixed payment terms based on the passage of time. Certain facility and equipment leases require payment of maintenance and real estate taxes and contain escalation provisions based on future adjustments in price indices. Our future operating lease obligations could change if we exit certain contracts or if we enter into additional operating lease agreements.
 
(3)   Purchase obligations primarily relate to purchase and maintenance agreements on our software, equipment and other assets.
 
(4)   We made the determination that net cash payments expected to be paid within the next 12 months, related to unrecognized tax benefits of $105.7 million at June 30, 2011, are expected to be up to $7.0 million. We are unable to make reasonably reliable estimates as to the period beyond the next 12 months in which cash payments related to unrecognized tax benefits are expected to be paid.
 
(5)   Compensation and benefits primarily relates to amounts associated with our employee benefit plans and other compensation arrangements.
 
(6)   Acquisition-related obligations relate to contingent consideration for business acquisitions for which the amount of contingent consideration was determinable at the date of acquisition and therefore included on the Consolidated Balance Sheet as a liability.

In addition to the obligations quantified in the table above, we had obligations for the remittance of funds relating to our payroll and payroll tax filing services. As of June 30, 2011, the obligations relating to these matters, which are expected to be paid in fiscal 2012, total $24,591.1 million and were recorded in client funds obligations on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. We had $25,135.6 million of cash and marketable securities that have been impounded from our clients to satisfy such obligations recorded in funds held for clients on our Consolidated Balance Sheets as of June 30, 2011.
 
ADP Indemnity provides workers’ compensation and employer’s liability deductible reimbursement protection for PEO Services worksite employees up to a $1 million per occurrence retention. PEO Services has secured specific per occurrence and aggregate stop loss reinsurance from a select wholly-owned and regulated insurance carrier of AIG that covers all losses in excess of the $1 million per occurrence retention and also any aggregate losses within the $1 million retention that collectively exceed a certain level in each policy year. We utilize historical loss experience and actuarial judgment to determine the estimated claim liability for the PEO business. Premiums are charged to the PEO to cover the PEO Services worksite employee expected claim expenses. Changes in estimated ultimate incurred losses are recognized by ADP Indemnity, Inc. At June 30, 2011, ADP Indemnity’s total assets were $223.2 million to satisfy the actuarially estimated cost of workers’ compensation claims of $212.7 million for the policy years since July 1, 2003. In fiscal 2011 and 2010, ADP Indemnity paid claims of $63.3 million and $53.8 million, respectively. At June 30, 2011, AIG’s long-term credit rating and financial strength ratings from Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s respectively, were A- and A with stable outlook, and Baa1 and A1 with stable outlook. Should AIG and its wholly-owned insurance company be unable to satisfy their contractual obligations, ADP would become responsible for satisfying the worksite employee workers’ compensation obligations.

In the normal course of business, we also enter into contracts in which we make representations and warranties that relate to the performance of our services and products. We do not expect any material losses related to such representations and warranties.
 
QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
Our overall investment portfolio is comprised of corporate investments (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities, and long-term marketable securities) and client funds assets (funds that have been collected from clients but not yet remitted to the applicable tax authorities or client employees).
 
Our corporate investments are invested in cash and cash equivalents and highly liquid, investment-grade marketable securities. These assets are available for repurchases of common stock for treasury and/or acquisitions, as well as other corporate operating purposes. All of our short-term and long-term fixed-income securities are classified as available-for-sale securities.
 
Our client funds assets are invested with safety of principal, liquidity, and diversification as the primary goals. Consistent with those goals, we also seek to maximize interest income and to minimize the volatility of interest income. Client funds assets are invested in highly liquid, investment-grade marketable securities with a maximum maturity of 10 years at the time of purchase and money market securities and other cash equivalents. At June 30, 2011, approximately 93% of the available-for-sale securities categorized as U.S. Treasury and direct obligations of U.S. government agencies were invested in senior, unsecured, non-callable debt directly issued by the Federal Home Loan Banks, Federal Farm Credit Banks, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
 
We utilize a strategy by which we extend the maturities of our investment portfolio for funds held for clients and employ short-term financing arrangements to satisfy our short-term funding requirements related to client funds obligations. Our client funds investment strategy is structured to allow us to average our way through an interest rate cycle by laddering the maturities of our investments out to five years (in the case of the extended portfolio) and out to ten years (in the case of the long portfolio). As part of our client funds investment strategy, we use the daily collection of funds from our clients to satisfy other unrelated client funds obligations, rather than liquidating previously-collected client funds that have already been invested in available-for-sale securities. We minimize the risk of not having funds collected from a client available at the time such client’s obligation becomes due by impounding, in virtually all instances, the client’s funds in advance of the timing of payment of such client’s obligation. As a result of this practice, we have consistently maintained the required level of client funds assets to satisfy all of our obligations.
 
There are inherent risks and uncertainties involving our investment strategy relating to our client funds assets. Such risks include liquidity risk, including the risk associated with our ability to liquidate, if necessary, our available-for-sale securities in a timely manner in order to satisfy our client funds obligations. However, our investments are made with the safety of principal, liquidity, and diversification as the primary goals to minimize the risk of not having sufficient funds to satisfy all of our client funds obligations. We also believe we have significantly reduced the risk of not having sufficient funds to satisfy our client funds obligations by consistently maintaining access to other sources of liquidity, including our corporate cash balances, available borrowings under our $6.75 billion commercial paper program (rated A-1+ by Standard and Poor’s and Prime-1 (P1) by Moody’s, the highest possible credit rating), our ability to execute reverse repurchase transactions ($2 billion of which is available on a committed basis) and available borrowings under our $6.75 billion committed revolving credit facilities. In August 2011, the Company increased the U.S. short-term commercial paper program to provide for the issuance of up to $6.75 billion in aggregate maturity value. However, the availability of financing during periods of economic turmoil, even to borrowers with the highest credit ratings, may limit our ability to access short-term debt markets to meet the liquidity needs of our business. In addition to liquidity risk, our investments are subject to interest rate risk and credit risk, as discussed below.
 
We have established credit quality, maturity, and exposure limits for our investments. The minimum allowed credit rating at time of purchase for corporate bonds is BBB and for asset-backed and commercial mortgage-backed securities is AAA. The maximum maturity at time of purchase for BBB rated securities is 5 years, for single A rated securities is 7 years, and for AA rated and AAA rated securities is 10 years. Commercial paper must be rated A1/P1 and, for time deposits, banks must have a Financial Strength Rating of C or better.

We are exposed to interest rate risk in relation to securities that mature, as the proceeds from maturing securities are reinvested. Factors that influence the earnings impact of the interest rate changes include, among others, the amount of invested funds and the overall portfolio mix between short-term and long-term investments. This mix varies during the fiscal year and is impacted by daily interest rate changes. The annualized interest rates earned on our entire portfolio decreased by 30 basis points, from 3.4% for fiscal 2010 to 3.1% for fiscal 2011. A hypothetical change in both short-term interest rates (e.g., overnight interest rates or the federal funds rate) and intermediate-term interest rates of 25 basis points applied to the estimated average investment balances and any related short-term borrowings would result in approximately a $9 million impact to earnings before income taxes over the ensuing twelve-month period ending June 30, 2012. A hypothetical change in only short-term interest rates of 25 basis points applied to the estimated average short-term investment balances and any related short-term borrowings would result in approximately a $3 million impact to earnings before income taxes over the ensuing twelve-month period ending June 30, 2012.
 
We are exposed to credit risk in connection with our available-for-sale securities through the possible inability of the borrowers to meet the terms of the securities. We limit credit risk by investing in investment-grade securities, primarily AAA and AA rated securities, as rated by Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, and for Canadian securities, Dominion Bond Rating Service. At June 30, 2011, approximately 86% of our available-for-sale securities held an AAA or AA rating. In addition, we limit amounts that can be invested in any security other than U.S. and Canadian government or government agency securities.
 
We are exposed to market risk from changes in foreign currency exchange rates that could impact our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows. We manage our exposure to these market risks through our regular operating and financing activities and, when deemed appropriate, through the use of derivative financial instruments. We use derivative financial instruments as risk management tools and not for trading purposes.
 
During fiscal 2010, we were exposed to foreign exchange fluctuations on U.S. Dollar denominated short-term intercompany amounts payable by a Canadian subsidiary to a U.S. subsidiary of the Company in the amount of $178.6 million U.S. Dollars. In order to manage the exposure related to the foreign exchange fluctuations between the Canadian Dollar and the U.S. Dollar, the Canadian subsidiary entered into a foreign exchange forward contract, which obligated the Canadian subsidiary to buy $178.6 million U.S. dollars at a rate of 1.15 Canadian Dollars to each U.S. Dollar on December 1, 2009. Upon settlement of such contract on December 1, 2009, an additional foreign exchange forward contract was entered into that obligated the Canadian subsidiary to buy $29.4 million U.S. Dollars at a rate of 1.06 Canadian dollars to each U.S. Dollar on February 26, 2010. The net loss on the foreign exchange forward contracts of $15.8 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2010 was recognized in earnings in fiscal 2010 and substantially offset the foreign currency mark-to-market gains on the related short-term intercompany amounts payable. The short-term intercompany amounts payable were fully paid by the Canadian subsidiary to the U.S. subsidiary by February 2010.
 
There were no derivative financial instruments outstanding at June 30, 2011, 2010 or 2009.

On July 1, 2010, we adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, “Multiple Deliverable Revenue Arrangements,” and ASU 2009-14, “Certain Revenue Arrangements that Include Software Elements.” ASU 2009-13 modifies the guidance related to accounting for arrangements with multiple deliverables by providing an alternative when vendor specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) or third-party evidence (“TPE”) does not exist to determine the selling price of a deliverable. The alternative when VSOE or TPE does not exist is management’s best estimate of the selling price of the deliverable. Consideration for multiple deliverables is then allocated based upon the relative selling price of the deliverables and revenue is recognized as earned for each deliverable. ASU 2009-14 modifies the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance to exclude (a) non-software components of tangible products and (b) software components of tangible products that are sold, licensed, or leased with tangible products when the software components and non-software components of the tangible product function together to deliver the tangible product’s functionality. The adoption of ASU 2009-13 and ASU 2009-14 did not have a material impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In December 2010, we adopted ASU 2010-20, “Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses.” ASU 2010-20 requires greater transparency about an entity’s allowance for credit losses and the credit quality of its financing receivables. The guidance is intended to provide disclosures to help facilitate the evaluation of the entity’s credit risk, how that risk is analyzed and the reasons for changes in the allowance for credit losses. The adoption of ASU 2010-20 did not have an impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In April 2011, we adopted ASU 2010-29, Disclosure of Supplementary Pro Forma Information for Business Combinations. ASU 2010-29 requires an entity to disclose revenue and earnings of the combined entity as though the business combination(s) that occurred during the current year had occurred as of the beginning of the comparable prior annual reporting period. ASU 2010-29 is effective prospectively for business combinations that occur on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-29 did not have an impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In April 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-03, Transfers and Servicing (Topic 860): Reconsideration of Effective Control for Repurchase Agreements. ASU 2011-03 revises the criteria for assessing effective control for repurchase agreements and other agreements that both entitle and obligate a transferor to repurchase or redeem financial assets before their maturity. The determination of whether the transfer of a financial asset subject to a repurchase agreement is a sale is based, in part, on whether the entity maintains effective control over the financial asset. ASU 2011-03 removes from the assessment of effective control: the criterion requiring the transferor to have the ability to repurchase or redeem the financial asset on substantially the agreed terms, even in the event of default by the transferee, and the related requirement to demonstrate that the transferor possesses adequate collateral to fund substantially all the cost of purchasing replacement financial assets. ASU 2011-03 is effective for the first interim or annual period beginning on or after December 15, 2011. We are currently evaluating the impact, if any, that the adoption of ASU 2011-03 will have on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. The issuance of ASU 2011-04 results in global fair value measurement and disclosure guidance and minimizes differences between U.S. GAAP and IFRS. ASU 2011-04 requires an expansion of the information required for “level 3” measurements and provides the updates to the existing measurement guidance. ASU 2011-04 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. We do not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-04 to have a material impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.
 
In June, 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” ASU 2011-05 requires entities to present net income and other comprehensive income in either a single continuous statement or in two separate, but consecutive, statements of net income and other comprehensive income. ASU 2011-05 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of ASU 2011-05 will not have a material impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We continually evaluate the accounting policies and estimates used to prepare the consolidated financial statements. The estimates are based on historical experience and assumptions believed to be reasonable under current facts and circumstances. Actual amounts and results could differ from these estimates made by management. Certain accounting policies that require significant management estimates and are deemed critical to our results of operations or financial position are discussed below.
 
Revenue Recognition. Our revenues are primarily attributable to fees for providing services (e.g., Employer Services’ payroll processing fees) as well as investment income on payroll funds, payroll tax filing funds and other Employer Services’ client-related funds. We enter into agreements for a fixed fee per transaction (e.g., number of payees or number of payrolls processed). Fees associated with services are recognized in the period services are rendered and earned under service arrangements with clients where service fees are fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Our service fees are determined based on written price quotations or service agreements having stipulated terms and conditions that do not require management to make any significant judgments or assumptions regarding any potential uncertainties. Interest income on collected but not yet remitted funds held for clients is recognized in revenues as earned, as the collection, holding and remittance of these funds are critical components of providing these services.
 
We also recognize revenues associated with the sale of software systems and associated software licenses (e.g., Dealer Services’ dealer management systems). For a majority of our software sales arrangements, which provide hardware, software licenses, installation, and post-contract customer support, revenues are recognized ratably over the software license term, as vendor-specific objective evidence of the fair values of the individual elements in the sales arrangement does not exist. Changes to the elements in an arrangement and the ability to establish vendor-specific objective evidence for those elements could affect the timing of the revenue recognition.
 
We assess collectability of our revenues based primarily on the creditworthiness of the customer as determined by credit checks and analysis, as well as the customer’s payment history. We do not believe that a change in our assumptions utilized in the collectability determination would result in a material change to revenues as no single customer accounts for a significant portion of our revenues.
 
Goodwill. We account for goodwill and other intangible assets with indefinite useful lives in accordance with ASC 350-10, which states that goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives should not be amortized, but instead tested for impairment at least annually at the reporting unit level. We perform this impairment test by first comparing the fair value of our reporting units to their carrying amount. If an indicator of impairment exists based upon comparing the fair value of our reporting units to their carrying amount, we would then compare the implied fair value of our goodwill to the carrying amount in order to determine the amount of the impairment, if any. We determine the fair value of our reporting units using the income approach, which utilizes a discounted cash flow model. In addition, we use comparative market multiples to corroborate our discounted cash flow results. We had $3,073.6 million of goodwill as of June 30, 2011. Given the significance of our goodwill, an adverse change to the fair value of goodwill and intangible assets could result in an impairment charge which could be material to our consolidated earnings if we are unable to generate the anticipated revenue growth, synergies and/or cost savings associated with our acquisitions.
 
Income Taxes. The objectives of accounting for income taxes are to recognize the amount of taxes payable or refundable for the current year and deferred tax liabilities and assets for the future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Judgment is required in addressing the future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our consolidated financial statements or tax returns (e.g., realization of deferred tax assets, changes in tax laws or interpretations thereof). In addition, we are subject to the continuous examination of our income tax returns by the IRS and other tax authorities. A change in the assessment of the outcomes of such matters could materially impact our consolidated financial statements.

There is a financial statement recognition threshold and measurement attribute for tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Specifically, the likelihood of an entity’s tax benefits being sustained must be “more likely than not” assuming that those positions will be examined by taxing authorities with full knowledge of all relevant information prior to recording the related tax benefit in the financial statements. If a tax position drops below the “more likely than not” standard, the benefit can no longer be recognized. Assumptions, judgment and the use of estimates are required in determining if the “more likely than not” standard has been met when developing the provision for income taxes. A change in the assessment of the “more likely than not” standard could materially impact our consolidated financial statements. As of June 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company’s liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits, which include interest and penalties, were $105.7 million and $107.2 million, respectively.
 
If certain pending tax matters settle within the next twelve months, the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits may increase or decrease for all open tax years and jurisdictions. Based on current estimates, settlements related to various jurisdictions and tax periods could increase earnings up to $10.0 million in the next twelve months. Audit outcomes and the timing of audit settlements are subject to significant uncertainty. We continually assess the likelihood and amount of potential adjustments and adjust the income tax provision, the current tax liability and deferred taxes in the period in which the facts that give rise to a revision become known.
 
Stock-Based Compensation. We measure stock-based compensation expense based on the fair value of the award on the date of grant. We determine the fair value of stock options issued by using a binomial option-pricing model. The binomial option-pricing model considers a range of assumptions related to volatility, dividend yield, risk-free interest rate and employee exercise behavior. Expected volatilities utilized in the binomial option-pricing model are based on a combination of implied market volatilities, historical volatility of our 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 option-pricing model also incorporates exercise and forfeiture assumptions based on an analysis of historical data. The expected life of the stock option grants is derived from the output of the binomial model and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. Determining these assumptions is subjective and complex, and therefore, a change in the assumptions utilized could impact the calculation of the fair value of our stock options.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Tabular dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
 
NOTE 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
A. Basis of Preparation. 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”). Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the assets, liabilities, revenue, costs, expenses and accumulated other comprehensive income that are reported in the Consolidated Financial Statements and footnotes thereto. Actual results may differ from those estimates.
 
B. Description of Business. The Company is a provider of technology-based outsourcing solutions to employers and vehicle retailers and manufacturers. The Company classifies its operations into the following reportable segments: Employer Services, Professional Employer Organization (“PEO”) Services, and Dealer Services. The primary components of the “Other” segment are miscellaneous processing services, such as customer financing transactions, non-recurring gains and losses, results of operations of ADP Indemnity, and certain expenses that have not been charged to the reportable segments, such as stock-based compensation expense.
 
C. Revenue Recognition. Revenues are primarily attributable to fees for providing services (e.g., Employer Services’ payroll processing fees) as well as investment income on payroll funds, payroll tax filing funds and other Employer Services’ client-related funds. The Company enters into agreements for a fixed fee per transaction (e.g., number of payees or number of payrolls processed). Fees associated with services are recognized in the period services are rendered and earned under service arrangements with clients where service fees are fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Service fees are determined based on written price quotations or service agreements having stipulated terms and conditions that do not require management to make any significant judgments or assumptions regarding any potential uncertainties.
 
Interest income on collected but not yet remitted funds held for clients is recognized in revenues as earned, as the collection, holding and remittance of these funds are critical components of providing these services.
 
The Company also recognizes revenues associated with the sale of software systems and associated software licenses (e.g., Dealer Services’ dealer management systems). For a majority of our software sales arrangements, which provide hardware, software licenses, installation, and post-contract customer support, revenues are recognized ratably over the software license term, as vendor-specific objective evidence of the fair values of the individual elements in the sales arrangement does not exist.
 
The Company assesses collectability of our revenues based primarily on the creditworthiness of the customer as determined by credit checks and analysis, as well as the customer’s payment history.
 
PEO revenues are reported on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings and are reported net of direct pass-through costs, which are costs billed and incurred for PEO Services worksite employees, primarily consisting of payroll wages and payroll taxes. Benefits, workers’ compensation and state unemployment tax fees for worksite employees are included in PEO revenues and the associated costs are included in operating expenses.
 
D. Cash and Cash Equivalents. Investment securities with a maturity of ninety days or less at the time of purchase are considered cash equivalents. The fair value of our cash and cash equivalents approximates carrying value.
 
E. Corporate Investments and Funds Held for Clients. All of the Company’s marketable securities are considered to be “available-for-sale” and, accordingly, are carried on the Consolidated Balance Sheets at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses, net of the related tax effect, are excluded from earnings and are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheets until realized. Realized gains and losses from the sale of available-for-sale securities are determined on a specific-identification basis and are included in other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings.

If the fair value of an available-for-sale debt security is below its amortized cost, the Company assesses whether it intends to sell the security or if it is more likely than not the Company will be required to sell the security before recovery. If either of those two conditions were met, the Company would recognize a charge in earnings equal to the entire difference between the security’s amortized cost basis and its fair value. If the Company does not intend to sell a security or it is not more likely than not that it will be required to sell the security before recovery, the unrealized loss is separated into an amount representing the credit loss, which is recognized in earnings, and the amount related to all other factors, which is recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income.
 
Premiums and discounts are amortized or accreted over the life of the related available-for-sale security as an adjustment to yield using the effective-interest method. Dividend and interest income are recognized when earned.
 
F. Long-term Receivables. Long-term receivables relate to notes receivable from the sale of computer systems, primarily to auto, truck, motorcycle, marine, recreational vehicle and heavy equipment dealers. Unearned income from finance receivables represents the excess of gross receivables over the sales price of the computer systems financed. Unearned income is amortized using the effective-interest method to maintain a constant rate of return over the term of each contract.
 
The allowance for doubtful accounts on long-term receivables is the Company’s best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses related to the Company’s existing note receivables.
 
G. Property, Plant and Equipment. Property, plant and equipment is stated at cost and depreciated over the estimated useful lives of the assets using the straight-line method. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the term of the lease or the estimated useful lives of the improvements. The estimated useful lives of assets are primarily as follows:
 
Data processing equipment 2 to 5 years
   
Buildings 20 to 40 years
   
Furniture and fixtures 3 to 7 years

H. Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives are not amortized, but are instead tested for impairment at least annually at the reporting unit level. The Company performs this impairment test by first comparing the fair value of our reporting units to their carrying amount. If an indicator of impairment exists based upon comparing the fair value of our reporting units to their carrying amount, the Company would then compare the implied fair value of our goodwill to the carrying amount in order to determine the amount of the impairment, if any. The Company determines the estimated fair value of its reporting units using an equal weighted blended approach which combines the income approach, which is the present value of expected cash flows, discounted at a risk-adjusted weighted-average cost of capital; and the market approach, which is based on using market multiples of companies in similar lines of business.
 
I. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.
 
J. Foreign Currency Translation. The net assets of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars based on exchange rates in effect for each period, and revenues and expenses are translated at average exchange rates in the periods. Gains or losses from balance sheet translation are included in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Currency transaction gains or losses, which are included in the results of operations, are immaterial for all periods presented.
 
K. Derivative Financial Instruments. Derivative financial instruments are measured at fair value and are recognized as assets or liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets with changes in the fair value of the derivatives recognized in either net earnings from continuing operations or accumulated other comprehensive income, depending on the timing and designated purpose of the derivative.
 
There were no derivative financial instruments outstanding at June 30, 2011 or June 30, 2010.

L. Earnings per Share (“EPS”). The calculations of basic and diluted EPS are as follows:
 
        Effect of   Effect of      
        Employee   Employee      
        Stock Option   Restricted Stock      
Years ended June 30, Basic        Shares        Shares        Diluted
2011                  
Net earnings from continuing operations $       1,254.2           $       1,254.2
Weighted average shares (in millions)   493.5   3.8   1.0     498.3
EPS from continuing operations $ 2.54           $ 2.52
                   
2010                  
Net earnings from continuing operations $ 1,207.3           $ 1,207.3
Weighted average shares (in millions)   500.5   2.2   1.0     503.7
EPS from continuing operations $ 2.41           $ 2.40
                   
2009                  
Net earnings from continuing operations $ 1,325.1           $ 1,325.1
Weighted average shares (in millions)   503.2   1.2   1.4     505.8
EPS from continuing operations $ 2.63           $ 2.62

Options to purchase 0.9 million, 14.0 million, and 32.9 million shares of common stock for the year ended June 30, 2011, (“fiscal 2011”), the year ended June 30, 2010 (“fiscal 2010”), and the year ended June 30, 2009 (“fiscal 2009”), respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because their exercise prices exceeded the average market price of outstanding common shares for the respective fiscal year.
 
M. Stock-Based Compensation. The Company recognizes stock-based compensation expense in net earnings based on the fair value of the award on the date of the grant. The Company determines the fair value of stock options issued using a binomial option-pricing model. The binomial option-pricing model considers a range of assumptions related to volatility, dividend yield, risk-free interest rate and employee exercise behavior. Expected volatilities utilized in the binomial option-pricing 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 option-pricing model also incorporates exercise and forfeiture assumptions based on an analysis of historical data. The expected life of a 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.
 
N. Internal Use Software. Expenditures for major software purchases and software developed or obtained for internal use are capitalized and amortized over a three- to five-year period on a straight-line basis. For software developed or obtained for internal use, the Company capitalizes costs. The Company’s policy provides for the capitalization of external direct costs of materials and services associated with developing or obtaining internal use computer software. In addition, the Company also capitalizes certain payroll and payroll-related costs for employees who are directly associated with internal use computer software projects. The amount of capitalizable payroll costs with respect to these employees is limited to the time directly spent on such projects. Costs associated with preliminary project stage activities, training, maintenance and all other post-implementation stage activities are expensed as incurred. The Company also expenses internal costs related to minor upgrades and enhancements, as it is impractical to separate these costs from normal maintenance activities.
 
O. Computer Software to be Sold, Leased or Otherwise Marketed. The Company capitalizes certain costs of computer software to be sold, leased or otherwise marketed. The Company’s policy provides for the capitalization of all software production costs upon reaching technological feasibility for a specific product. Technological feasibility is attained when software products have a completed working model whose consistency with the overall product design has been confirmed by testing. Costs incurred prior to the establishment of technological feasibility are expensed as incurred. The establishment of technological feasibility requires judgment by management and in many instances is only attained a short time prior to the general release of the software. Upon the general release of the software product to customers, capitalization ceases and such costs are amortized over a three-year period on a straight-line basis. Maintenance-related costs are expensed as incurred.
 
42
 

 

P. Income Taxes. The objectives of accounting for income taxes are to recognize the amount of taxes payable or refundable for the current year and deferred tax liabilities and assets for the future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. The Company is subject to the continuous examination of our income tax returns by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and other tax authorities.
 
There is a financial statement recognition threshold and measurement attribute for tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Specifically, the likelihood of an entity’s tax benefits being sustained must be “more likely than not”, assuming that these positions will be examined by taxing authorities with full knowledge of all relevant information prior to recording the related tax benefit in the financial statements. If a tax position drops below the “more likely than not” standard, the benefit can no longer be recognized. Assumptions, judgment and the use of estimates are required in determining if the “more likely than not” standard has been met when developing the provision for income taxes. As of June 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company’s liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits, which include interest and penalties, were $105.7 million, and $107.2 million respectively.
 
If certain pending tax matters settle within the next twelve months, the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits may increase or decrease for all open tax years and jurisdictions. Based on current estimates, settlements related to various jurisdictions and tax periods could increase earnings up to $10.0 million. Audit outcomes and the timing of audit settlements are subject to significant uncertainty. We continually assess the likelihood and amount of potential adjustments and adjust the income tax provision, the current tax liability and deferred taxes in the period in which the facts that give rise to a revision become known.
 
Q. Workers’ Compensation Costs. The Company employs a third party actuary to assist in determining the estimated claim liability related to workers’ compensation and employer liability coverage for PEO Services worksite employees. In estimating loss development rates, we utilize historical loss experience, exposure data, and actuarial judgment, together with a range of inputs which are primarily based upon the worksite employee’s job responsibilities, their location, the historical frequency and severity of workers’ compensation claims, and an estimate of future cost trends. For each reporting period, changes in the actuarial assumptions resulting from changes in actual claims experience and other trends are incorporated into our workers’ compensation claims cost estimates. The Company has secured specific per occurrence reinsurance that caps the exposure for each individual claim at $1 million per occurrence, and has also secured aggregate stop loss reinsurance that caps aggregate losses at a certain level in each policy year.
 
R. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements.
 
In July 2010, the Company adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, “Multiple Deliverable Revenue Arrangements,” and ASU 2009-14, “Certain Revenue Arrangements that Include Software Elements.” ASU 2009-13 modifies the guidance related to accounting for arrangements with multiple deliverables by providing an alternative when vendor specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) or third-party evidence (“TPE”) does not exist to determine the selling price of a deliverable. The alternative when VSOE or TPE does not exist is management’s best estimate of the selling price of the deliverable. Consideration for multiple deliverables is then allocated based upon the relative selling price of the deliverables and revenue is recognized as earned for each deliverable. ASU 2009-14 modifies the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance to exclude (a) non-software components of tangible products and (b) software components of tangible products that are sold, licensed, or leased with tangible products when the software components and non-software components of the tangible product function together to deliver the tangible product’s functionality. The adoption of ASU 2009-13 and ASU 2009-14 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In December 2010, the Company adopted ASU 2010-20, “Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses.” ASU 2010-20 requires greater transparency about a company’s allowance for credit losses and the credit quality of its financing receivables. The guidance is intended to provide disclosures to help facilitate the evaluation of the Company’s credit risk, how that risk is analyzed and the reasons for changes in the allowance for credit losses. The adoption of ASU 2010-20 did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In April 2011, the Company adopted ASU 2010-29, Disclosure of Supplementary Pro Forma Information for Business Combinations. ASU 2010-29 requires an entity to disclose revenue and earnings of the combined entity as though the business combination(s) that occurred during the current year had occurred as of the beginning of the comparable prior annual reporting period. ASU 2010-29 is effective prospectively for business combinations that occur on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-29 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
43
 

 

In April 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-03, Transfers and Servicing (Topic 860): Reconsideration of Effective Control for Repurchase Agreements. ASU 2011-03 revises the criteria for assessing effective control for repurchase agreements and other agreements that both entitle and obligate a transferor to repurchase or redeem financial assets before their maturity. The determination of whether the transfer of a financial asset subject to a repurchase agreement is a sale is based, in part, on whether the entity maintains effective control over the financial asset. ASU 2011-03 removes from the assessment of effective control: the criterion requiring the transferor to have the ability to repurchase or redeem the financial asset on substantially the agreed terms, even in the event of default by the transferee, and the related requirement to demonstrate that the transferor possesses adequate collateral to fund substantially all the cost of purchasing replacement financial assets. ASU 2011-03 is effective for the first interim or annual period beginning on or after December 15, 2011. The Company is currently evaluating the impact, if any, that the adoption of ASU 2011-03 will have on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. The issuance of ASU 2011-04 results in global fair value measurement and disclosure guidance and minimizes differences between U.S. GAAP and IFRS. ASU 2011-04 requires an expansion of the information required for “level 3” measurements and provides the updates to the existing measurement guidance. ASU 2011-04 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-04 to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.
 
In June, 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” ASU 2011-05 requires entities to present net income and other comprehensive income in either a single continuous statement or in two separate, but consecutive, statements of net income and other comprehensive income. ASU 2011-05 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of ASU 2011-05 will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.
 
NOTE 2. OTHER INCOME, NET
 
Other income, net consists of the following:
 
Years ended June 30, 2011        2010        2009
Interest income on corporate funds $       (88.8 )   $       (98.8 )   $       (134.2 )
Realized gains on available-for-sale securities   (38.0 )     (15.0 )     (11.4 )
Realized losses on available-for-sale securities   3.6       13.4       23.8  
Realized (gain) on investment in Reserve Fund   (0.9 )     (15.2 )     18.3  
Impairment losses on available-for-sale securities   -       14.4       -  
Impairment losses on assets held for sale   11.7       -       -  
Net (gains) losses on sales of buildings   (1.8 )     2.3       (2.2 )
Other, net   (2.4 )     (2.3 )     (2.3 )
                       
Other income, net $ (116.6 )   $ (101.2 )   $ (108.0 )
                       
Proceeds from sales and maturities of available-for-sale securities were $3,305.1 million, $3,406.9 million, and $3,320.4 million for fiscal 2011, 2010, and 2009, respectively.
 
In fiscal 2009, the net asset value of the Primary Fund of the Reserve Fund (“Reserve Fund”) decreased below $1 per share as a result of the full write-off of the Reserve Fund’s holdings in debt securities issued by Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., which filed for bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2008. In fiscal 2009, the Company recorded a loss of $18.3 million to other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings to recognize it’s pro-rata share of the estimated losses of the investment it held in the Reserve Fund. During fiscal 2010 and 2011, the Company received distributions from the Reserve Fund in excess of what was previously recorded in short-term marketable securities and as such, recorded gains of $15.2 million and $0.9 million, respectively, to other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings.
 
44
 

 

In fiscal 2010, the Company concluded it had the intent to sell certain securities for which unrealized losses of $14.4 million were previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. As such, the Company realized impairment losses of $14.4 million in other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings during fiscal 2010. The Company subsequently sold all securities that the Company previously concluded it had the intent to sell.
 
During fiscal years 2011, 2010, and 2009, the Company sold buildings that were previously classified as Assets Held for Sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and, as a result, recorded net gains/(losses) of $1.8 million, ($2.3) million, and $2.2 million, respectively, in other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings. During fiscal 2011, the Company reclassified assets related to two buildings as Assets Held for Sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. As the carrying amount of the assets held for sale exceeded their fair value less costs to sell, the Company recorded impairment losses of $11.7 million. Refer to Note 9 for more information related to Assets Held for Sale.
 
The Company has an outsourcing agreement with Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (“Broadridge”) pursuant to which the Company provides data center outsourcing services, which principally consist of information technology services and service delivery network services. As a result of this agreement, the Company recognized income of $113.0 million and $104.8 million in fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2010, respectively, which is offset by expenses associated with providing such services of $110.8 million and $102.6 million, respectively, both of which were recorded in other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings. The Company had a receivable on the Consolidated Balance Sheets from Broadridge for the services under this agreement of $9.5 million and $8.9 million on June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. In fiscal 2010, Broadridge notified the Company that it would not extend the outsourcing agreement beyond its current expiration date of June 30, 2012. The Company continues to assess the impact on results of operations, if any, that this will have and does not currently anticipate this will have a material impact.
 
NOTE 3. 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. Accordingly, the allocations are subject to revision when the Company receives final information, including appraisals and other analyses, which typically occurs within one year from the date of acquisition.
 
On August 16, 2010, the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Cobalt, a leading provider of digital marketing solutions for the auto industry that aligns with Dealer Services’ global layered applications strategy and strongly supports Dealer Services’ long-term growth strategy, for approximately $405.4 million in cash, net of cash acquired.
 
The purchase price allocation for Cobalt is as follows:
 
Accounts receivable, net $ 42.5
Goodwill   311.7
Identifiable intangible assets   111.6
Other assets   57.4
Total assets acquired $       523.2
     
Total liabilities acquired $ 96.1
     
The Company determined the purchase price allocations for this acquisition based on estimates of the fair value of tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed, utilizing recognized valuation techniques, including the income and market approaches. Goodwill for Cobalt, which is not deductible for tax purposes, resulted from the expected impact to Dealer Services’ long-term growth strategy. Intangible assets for Cobalt, which totaled $111.6 million, included customer contracts and lists, software and trademarks that are being amortized over a weighted average life of approximately 11 years. There is no contingent consideration relating to the Cobalt acquisition.
 
45
 

 

In addition to Cobalt, the Company acquired eight businesses in fiscal 2011 for approximately $370.6 million, net of cash acquired. The purchase price for these acquisitions includes $1.6 million in accrued contingent payments expected to be paid in future periods. These acquisitions resulted in approximately $269.8 million of goodwill. Intangible assets acquired, which totaled approximately $134.8 million, consist of software, customer contracts and lists and trademarks that are being amortized over a weighted average life of 9 years. In addition, the Company made $0.8 million of contingent payments in fiscal 2011 relating to previously consummated acquisitions. As of June 30, 2011, the Company had contingent consideration remaining for all transactions of approximately $7.0 million.
 
The Company acquired five businesses in fiscal 2010 for approximately $101.0 million, net of cash acquired. The purchase price for these acquisitions includes $3.7 million in accrued contingent payments expected to be paid in future periods. These acquisitions resulted in approximately $80.8 million of goodwill. Intangible assets acquired, which totaled approximately $33.5 million, consist of software, customer contracts and lists and trademarks that are being amortized over a weighted average life of 7 years. In addition, the Company made $2.6 million of contingent payments in fiscal 2010 relating to previously consummated acquisitions. As of June 30, 2010, the Company had contingent consideration remaining for all transactions of approximately $7.1 million.
 
The Company acquired four businesses in fiscal 2009 for approximately $62.7 million, which includes $6.4 million in accrued contingent payments expected to be paid in future periods and which is net of cash acquired. These acquisitions resulted in approximately $60.3 million of goodwill. Intangible assets acquired, which totaled approximately $20.8 million, consist of software, customer contracts and lists and trademarks that are being amortized over a weighted average life of 9 years. In addition, the Company made $10.7 million of contingent payments in fiscal 2009 relating to previously consummated acquisitions.
 
The acquisitions discussed above for fiscal 2011, 2010, and 2009 were not material, either individually or in the aggregate, to the Company’s operations, financial position or cash flows.
 
NOTE 4. DIVESTITURES

In fiscal 2010, the Company concluded that it had the intent to sell certain securities for which unrealized losses of $14.4 million previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. As such, the Company realized impairment losses of $14.4 million in other income, net on the Statements of Consolidated Earnings in fiscal 2010.
 
For the securities in an unrealized loss position of $34.6 million at June 30, 2011, the Company concluded that it did not have the intent to sell such securities and that it was not more likely than not that the Company would be required to sell such securities before recovery, in order to determine whether such losses were due to credit losses. The securities with unrealized losses of $34.6 million were primarily comprised of corporate bonds and U.S. Treasury and direct obligations of U.S. government agencies. The Company evaluated such securities utilizing a variety of quantitative and qualitative factors including whether the Company expects to collect all amounts due under the contractual terms of the security, information about current and past events of the issuer, and the length of time and the extent to which the fair value has been less than the cost basis. At June 30, 2011, the Company concluded that unrealized losses on available-for-sale securities held at June 30, 2011 were not credit losses and were attributable to other factors, including changes in interest rates. As a result, the Company concluded that the $34.6 million in unrealized losses on such securities should be recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Consolidated Balance Sheets at June 30, 2011.
 
NOTE 6. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
 
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date and is based upon the Company’s principal or most advantageous market for a specific asset or liability.
 
US GAAP provides for a three-level hierarchy of inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value, defined as follows:
 
       Level 1        Fair value is determined based upon quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities that are traded in active markets.
   
  Level 2   Fair value is determined based upon inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability, including:
     
  • quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets;
  • quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active;
  • inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability; or
  • inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
       
 
Level 3
 
Fair value is determined based upon inputs that are unobservable and reflect the Company’s own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based upon the best information available in the circumstances (e.g., internally derived assumptions surrounding the timing and amount of expected cash flows).

Available-for-sale securities included in Level 1 are valued using closing prices for identical instruments that are traded on active exchanges. Available-for-sale securities included in Level 2 are valued utilizing inputs obtained from an independent pricing service. To determine the fair value of our Level 2 investments, a variety of inputs are utilized, including benchmark yields, reported trades, non-binding broker/dealer quotes, issuer spreads, two-sided markets, benchmark securities, bids, offers, reference data, new issue data, and monthly payment information. Over 99% of our Level 2 investments are valued utilizing inputs obtained from a pricing service. The Company reviews the values generated by the independent pricing service for reasonableness by comparing the valuations received from the independent pricing service to valuations from at least one other observable source. The Company has not adjusted the prices obtained from the independent pricing service. The Company has no available-for-sale securities included in Level 3.
 
51
 

 

The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the classification of assets and liabilities within the fair value hierarchy. In certain instances, the inputs used to measure fair value may meet the definition of more than one level of the fair value hierarchy. The significant input with the lowest level priority is used to determine the applicable level in the fair value hierarchy.

NOTE 7. 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 dealers. 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:

Total   $ 1,364.8     $ 128.7     $ 1,127.7     $ 129.4  
                                 
Long-term receivables at June 30, 2011 mature as follows:
 
2013       $       67.5
2014   45.4
2015   24.5
2016   9.0
2017   -
 
    $     146.4
     
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 our 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:
 
    June 30, 2011
    Notes Receivable   Reserve
        Current       Long-term       Current       Long-term
Specific Reserve   $        0.6   $        0.9   $        0.6   $        0.9
Non-specific Reserve     89.9     145.5     5.1     8.5
Total   $ 90.5   $ 146.4   $ 5.7   $ 9.4

NOTE 11. SHORT-TERM FINANCING
 
In June 2011, the Company entered into a $2.0 billion, 364-day credit agreement with a group of lenders. The 364-day facility replaced our prior $2.5 billion 364-day facility. In addition, the Company entered into 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 four-year facility replaced our prior $2.25 billion five-year facility, which expired in June 2011. The Company also has an existing $1.5 billion three-year credit facility that matures in June 2013 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 June 30, 2011 under the credit agreements.
 
The Company’s U.S. short-term funding requirements related to client funds are sometimes obtained through a short-term commercial paper program, which provides for the issuance of up to $6.25 billion in aggregate maturity value of commercial paper.

The Company has $2.0 billion available to it on a committed basis under these reverse repurchase agreements. At June 30, 2011 and 2010, there were no outstanding obligations under reverse repurchase agreements.
