21 min read

SHORT HILLS, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dun & Bradstreet Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DNB), a leading global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, today announced unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2020. A reconciliation of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in this press release, including the accompanying tables. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $480.1 million, an increase of 11.0% as reported, and 10.5% on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019; which includes the net impact of lower deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments of $39.0 million.
  • Net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $7.0 million, or diluted loss per share of $0.02, and adjusted net income of $118.1 million, or adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.28.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $208.9 million, up 32.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, and adjusted EBITDA margin of 43.5%, an increase of 700 basis points; which includes the net impact of lower deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments of $39.0 million.

“We are pleased with our solid performance in the fourth quarter, which was in line with our expectations, and contributed to the achievement of our full year 2020 guidance,” said Anthony Jabbour, Dun & Bradstreet Chief Executive Officer. “2020 was an important year for us as we completed a successful IPO, signed a definitive agreement to acquire Bisnode and continued to execute on our growth and transformation strategies. These actions have laid the foundation for continued growth and we are excited about the opportunities to maximize shareholder value that lie ahead.”

  • Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $1,738.1 million, an increase of 10.2% as reported, and 10.1% on a constant currency basis, compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. This increase includes the net impact of lower deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments of $133.8 million (inclusive of a pro forma deferred revenue adjustment) and international lag adjustment of $25.9 million which had a combined ten percentage point impact on the year over year growth.
  • Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $175.6 million, or diluted loss per share of $0.48, and adjusted net income of $349.7 million, or adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.95.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $715.4 million, an increase of 29.5% compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis, and adjusted EBITDA margin of 41.2%, an increase of 670 basis points, compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. This includes the net impact of lower deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments of $133.8 million (inclusive of a pro forma deferred revenue adjustment) which had a 25 percentage point impact on the year over year growth, and a five percentage point impact on the margin improvement.

Segment Results

North America

For the fourth quarter of 2020, North America revenue was $400.8 million, an increase of less than 1% both as reported and on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

  • Finance and Risk revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $217.9 million, an increase of less than 1% both as reported and on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to the shift of $4 million government contract from Q3, higher subscription-based revenues, partially offset by known, transient headwinds of $1 million from structural changes within our legacy Credibility solutions and $8 million in lower usage compared to an elevated Q4 2019 along with the impact of COVID-19.
  • Sales and Marketing revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $182.9 million, an increase of less than 1% both as reported and on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to higher revenue of approximately $8 million from our D&B Direct solution, partially offset by lower royalty revenue of approximately $6 million from the Data.com legacy partnership.

North America adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $198.3 million, a decrease of less than 1%, with adjusted EBITDA margin of 49.5%, a decrease of 20 basis points both compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, North America revenue was $1,459.9 million a decrease of $4.8 million, or less than 1% both as reported and on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis.

  • Finance & Risk revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $811.1 million, an increase of $2.5 million, or less than 1% both as reported and on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The increase was primarily due to higher subscription-based revenue of approximately $30 million, partially offset by lower revenues of approximately $17 million of lower usage, primarily attributable to the impact of COVID-19 and lower revenue of approximately $11 million primarily due to structural changes we made within our legacy Credibility solutions and lower usage.
  • Sales & Marketing revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $648.8, a decrease of $7.3 million, or 1.1% as reported and 1.2% on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The decrease was primarily due to lower royalty revenue of approximately $20 million from Data.com legacy partnership along with lower usage revenue across our Sales & Marketing solutions partially due to the impact of COVID-19. The aforementioned decreases were partially offset by a net increase in revenue across our Sales & Marketing solutions of approximately $6 million largely attributable to our D&B Direct solutions. In addition, revenue increased by $6.5 million from the acquisition of Lattice, which was acquired at the beginning of the third quarter of 2019.

North America adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $696.4 million, an increase of $6.5 million, or 1.0%, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. North America adjusted EBITDA margin of 47.7% increased 60 basis points for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The improvement in both adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to lower operating costs primarily resulting from ongoing cost management driven by lower net personnel expenses.

International

International revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $79.9 million, an increase of $7.3 million or 9.9% as reported, and 7.6% on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

  • Finance and Risk revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $63.9 million, an increase of $6.4 million or 11.0% as reported, and 8.5% on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to higher revenue of approximately $4 million from WWN alliances due to higher cross border data sales and higher revenue from risk solutions in our U.K. market of approximately $1 million.
  • Sales and Marketing revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $16.0 million, an increase of $0.9 million or 5.7% as reported and 4.3% on a constant currency basis compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily attributable to higher revenue from API solutions in our U.K. market of approximately $1 million.

International adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $23.2 million, an increase of $0.9 million or 3.6%, with adjusted EBITDA margin of 29.0%, a decrease of 170 basis points both compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, International revenue was $299.3 million, an increase of $6.6 million, or 2.2% as reported and 1.4% on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis.

  • Finance & Risk revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $243.6 million, an increase of $8.9 million, or 3.8% as reported and 2.9% on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The increase was driven primarily by higher revenue of approximately $10 million from WWN alliances due to higher cross border data sales, higher revenue of approximately $1 million from increased sales of risk solutions in the U.K., and $2 million from our Greater China market driven by solutions targeted at small businesses, partially offset by lower usage volume in our Asia markets of approximately $2 million primarily due to the impact of COVID-19 and transitory headwinds in the WWN and U.K. of $6 million.
  • Sales & Marketing revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $55.7 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 4.0% as reported and 4.6% on a constant currency basis compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The decrease in revenue was driven primarily by lower product royalties from our WWN alliances of approximately $1 million, and lower usage volume in our Asia market of approximately $1 million primarily due to the impact of COVID-19.

International adjusted EBITDA was $94.8 million, a decrease of $3.7 million, or 4.0%, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. International adjusted EBITDA margin of 31.7% decreased 190 basis points for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to the year ended December 31, 2019 on a combined pro forma basis. The decrease in both adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to higher WWN alliances data expense.

Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $354.5 million and total principal amount of debt of $3,381.0 million. We had the full capacity available on our $850 million revolving credit facility as of December 31, 2020.

On January 27, 2021 we refinanced our term loan and reduced the spread by 50 basis points, from 375 basis points to 325 basis points which will save us approximately $14 million of annual interest.

Business Outlook

Dun & Bradstreet’s full year 2021 outlook is as follows:

  • Adjusted Revenues are expected to be in the range of $2,145 million to $2,175 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $840 million to $855 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting GAAP results, we evaluate performance and report our results on the non-GAAP financial measures discussed below. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors and rating agencies regarding our results, operating trends and performance between periods. These non-GAAP financial measures include adjusted revenue, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (‘‘adjusted EBITDA’’), adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted net income. Adjusted results are non-GAAP measures that adjust for the impact due to purchase accounting application and divestitures, restructuring charges, equity-based compensation, acquisition and divestiture-related costs (such as costs for bankers, legal fees, due diligence, retention payments and contingent consideration adjustments) and other non-core gains and charges that are not in the normal course of our business (such as gains and losses on sales of businesses, impairment charges, effect of significant changes in tax laws and material tax and legal settlements). We exclude amortization of recognized intangible assets resulting from the application of purchase accounting because it is non-cash and not indicative of our ongoing and underlying operating performance. Recognized intangible assets arise from acquisitions, or primarily the Take-Private Transaction. We believe that recognized intangible assets by their nature are fundamentally different from other depreciating assets that are replaced on a predictable operating cycle. Unlike other depreciating assets, such as developed and purchased software licenses or property and equipment, there is no replacement cost once these recognized intangible assets expire and the assets are not replaced. Additionally, our costs to operate, maintain and extend the life of acquired intangible assets and purchased intellectual property are reflected in our operating costs as personnel, data fee, facilities, overhead and similar items. Management believes it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase accounting and contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of recognized intangible assets will recur in future periods until such assets have been fully amortized. In addition, we isolate the effects of changes in foreign exchange rates on our revenue growth because we believe it is useful for investors to be able to compare revenue from one period to another, both after and before the effects of foreign exchange rate changes. The change in revenue performance attributable to foreign currency rates is determined by converting both our prior and current periods’ foreign currency revenue by a constant rate. As a result, we monitor our adjusted revenue growth both after and before the effects of foreign exchange rate changes. We believe that these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures provide management and other users with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing our ongoing performance and comparability of our operating results from period to period. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Our non-GAAP or adjusted financial measures reflect adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax.

Adjusted Revenue

We define adjusted revenue as revenue adjusted to include revenue for the period from January 8 to February 7, 2019 (‘‘International lag adjustment’’) for the Predecessor related to the lag reporting for our International operations. On a GAAP basis, we report International results on a one-month lag, and for 2019 the Predecessor period for International is December 1, 2018 through January 7, 2019. The Successor period for International is February 8, 2019 (commencing on the closing date of the Take-Private Transaction) through November 30, 2019 for the Successor period from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. The International lag adjustment is to facilitate comparability of 2019 periods to 2020 periods.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Dun & Bradstreet Holdings, Inc. (Successor) / The Dun & Bradstreet Corporation (Predecessor) excluding the following items:

  • depreciation and amortization;
  • interest expense and income;
  • income tax benefit or provision;
  • other expenses or income;
  • equity in net income of affiliates;
  • net income attributable to non-controlling interests;
  • dividends allocated to preferred stockholders;
  • revenue and expense adjustments to include results for the period from January 8 to February 7, 2019, for the Predecessor related to the International lag adjustment (see above discussion);
  • other incremental or reduced expenses from the application of purchase accounting (e.g. commission asset amortization);
  • equity-based compensation;
  • merger and acquisition-related operating costs;
  • transition costs primarily consisting of non-recurring incentive expenses associated with our synergy program;
  • legal reserve and costs associated with significant legal and regulatory matters; and

We calculate adjusted EBITDA margin by dividing adjusted EBITDA by adjusted revenue.

Adjusted Net Income

We define adjusted net income as net income (loss) attributable to Dun & Bradstreet Holdings, Inc. (Successor) / The Dun & Bradstreet Corporation (Predecessor) adjusted for the following items:

  • revenue and expense adjustments to include results for the period from January 8 to February 7, 2019, for the Predecessor related to the International lag adjustment (see above discussion);
  • incremental amortization resulting from the application of purchase accounting. We exclude amortization of recognized intangible assets resulting from the application of purchase accounting because it is non-cash and is not indicative of our ongoing and underlying operating performance. The Company believes that recognized intangible assets by their nature are fundamentally different from other depreciating assets that are replaced on a predictable operating cycle. Unlike other depreciating assets, such as developed and purchased software licenses or property and equipment, there is no replacement cost once these recognized intangible assets expire and the assets are not replaced. Additionally, the Company’s costs to operate, maintain and extend the life of acquired intangible assets and purchased intellectual property are reflected in the Company’s operating costs as personnel, data fee, facilities, overhead and similar items;
  • other incremental or reduced expenses from the application of purchase accounting (e.g. commission asset amortization);
  • equity-based compensation;
  • merger and acquisition-related operating costs;
  • transition costs primarily consisting of non-recurring incentive expenses associated with our synergy program;
  • legal reserve and costs associated with significant legal and regulatory matters;
  • change in fair value of the make-whole derivative liability associated with the Series A Preferred Stock;
  • non-recurring pension charges, related to pension settlement charge and actuarial loss amortization eliminated as a result of the Take-Private Transaction;
  • dividends allocated to preferred stockholders;
  • merger, acquisition and divestiture-related non-operating costs;
  • debt refinancing and extinguishment costs; and
  • tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments and the impact resulting from the enactment of the CARES Act.

Adjusted Net Earnings per Diluted Share

We calculate adjusted net earnings per diluted share by dividing adjusted net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period plus the dilutive effect of common shares potentially issuable in connection with awards outstanding under our stock incentive plan. For consistency purposes, we assume the stock split effected on June 23, 2020 to be the number of shares outstanding during the Predecessor period.

Forward-Looking Statements

The statements contained in this release that are not purely historical are forward-looking statements, including statements regarding expectations, hopes, intentions or strategies regarding the future. Forward-looking statements are based on Dun & Bradstreet’s management’s beliefs, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, them. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects” and similar references to future periods, or by the inclusion of forecasts or projections. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make regarding the outlook for our future business and financial performance. Because such statements are based on expectations as to future financial and operating results and are not statements of fact, actual results may differ materially from those projected.
