Vantiv Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Double-Digit Growth as Net Revenue Increased 14% and Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income per Share Increased 25%

 Board Authorizes $250 Million Return of Capital through Combination of Share Repurchase and TRA Termination

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Outlook

CINCINNATI, Oct. 24, 2013 - Vantiv, Inc. (NYSE: VNTV) ("Vantiv" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the third quarter ended Sep. 30, 2013.  Revenue increased 14% to $532.3 million in the third quarter as compared to $466.7 million in the prior year period.  Net revenue increased 14% to $294.2 million in the third quarter as compared to $258.5 million in the prior year period.  Vantiv's 14% net revenue growth was due primarily to 9% transaction growth and a 5% expansion in net revenue per transaction.  On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Vantiv, Inc. was $35.7 million or $0.24 per diluted share during the third quarter, compared with $24.3 million or $0.19 per diluted share in the prior year period.  Pro forma adjusted net income increased 17% in the third quarter to $80.0 million as compared to $68.1 million in the prior year period.  Pro forma adjusted net income per share increased 25% to $0.40 for the third quarter as compared to $0.32 in the prior year period.  (See Schedule 2 for pro forma adjusted net income, Schedule 3 for net revenue per transaction, and Schedule 6 for GAAP net income reconciliation to pro forma adjusted net income.)

Vantiv's superior cost structure continues to drive high levels of profitability as reflected by the Company's third quarter adjusted EBITDA margin of 50.8%.  Adjusted EBITDA increased 13% to $149.5 million in the third quarter from $131.9 million in the prior year period.  (See Schedule 8 for reconciliation from GAAP net income to adjusted EBITDA.)

"Our double-digit growth in the third quarter demonstrates the strength of our business model," said Charles Drucker, president and chief executive officer at Vantiv. "We continue to win in the market and invest for growth - including the successes in our direct merchant, ecommerce, and technology partner channels.  Looking ahead, we will continue to set a high-bar for success. By executing our strategy, Vantiv will continue to grow and win share in the payments market."

Merchant Services
Net revenue increased 18% to $209.7 million in the third quarter as compared to $177.0 million in the prior year period, primarily due to a 10% increase in transactions and an 8% expansion in net revenue per transaction, which reflects beneficial changes in our customer mix, including increased net revenue from our ecommerce and technology partner channels.  The Company's ecommerce business continued to generate superior growth during the third quarter with a 38% year-over-year increase in sales volume on a pro forma basis, due primarily to strong new sales and organic growth.  Sales and marketing expenses increased to $72.5 million in the third quarter from $63.0 million in the prior year period.

Financial Institution Services
Net revenue increased 4% to $84.5 million in the third quarter from $81.5 million in the prior year period as transactions grew 5% year-over-year.  Sales and marketing expenses increased to $7.0 million from $6.3 million in the prior year period.

$250 Million Return of Capital
Vantiv's Board of Directors authorized the return of $250 million to shareholders through the repurchase of shares and the termination of certain tax receivable agreements (TRAs) established at the time of the Company's initial public offering.  Specifically, a special committee of the Board authorized the termination of certain TRAs for $113 million, and the Board authorized the repurchase of up to $137 million of Class A common stock.  The terminated TRAs represented approximately $254 million in accrued liability and were terminated for approximately 44 cents on the dollar.

"Returning excess capital to shareholders is a priority," said chief financial officer Mark Heimbouch.  "The termination of these tax receivable agreements will generate approximately $0.11 in accretion to pro forma adjusted net income per share annually, and the Board's authorization of a stock repurchase program reflects our confidence in Vantiv's future.  These actions underscore our commitment to driving shareholder value."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Outlook
Based on the current level of consumer spending activity as well as the current level of new business activity, net revenue for the fourth quarter is expected to be $303 to $308 million and pro forma adjusted net income is expected to be $0.43 to $0.45 on a per share basis.  The outlook for the fourth quarter includes negative impacts related to lower consumer spending trends, delays in large client conversions, as well as slower ramping of new business and related impacts.

For the full year, net revenue is expected to be $1,167 to $1,172 million, and pro forma adjusted net income is expected to be $1.54 to $1.56 on a per share basis.  GAAP net income per share attributable to Vantiv, Inc. is expected to be $0.87 to $0.89 for the full year.

Forward-Looking Statements
This release contains forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact or relating to present facts or current conditions included in this release are forward-looking statements including any statements regarding guidance and statements of a general economic or industry specific nature. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to our financial condition, results of operations, guidance, plans, objectives, future performance and business. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements may include words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "plan," "intend," "believe," "may," "should," "can have," "likely" and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.

The forward-looking statements contained in this release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you review and consider information presented herein, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of future performance or results. They depend upon future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond our control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual future performance or results and cause them to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Certain of these factors and other risk factors are discussed in the Company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and include, but are not limited to: (i) the ability to keep pace with rapid developments and change in our industry and provide new services to our clients; (ii) competition within our industry; (iii) disclosure of unauthorized data and security breaches that expose us to liability, litigation and reputational damage; (iv) failures of our systems or systems of our third party providers; (v) our inability to expand our market share in existing markets or expand into new markets; (vi) our ability to identify acquisition, joint venture and partnership candidates and finance or integrate businesses, services or technologies that we acquire; (vii) failure to comply with applicable requirements of Visa, MasterCard or other payment networks; (viii) changes in payment network rules or standards; (ix) our ability to pass fee increases along to merchants; (x) termination of sponsorship or clearing services provided to us; (xi) increased attrition of our merchants, independent sales organizations, or ISOs, or referral partners; (xii) inability to successfully renew or renegotiate agreements with our clients or ISOs; (xiii) reductions in overall consumer, business and government spending; (xiv) fraud by merchants or others; (xv) a decline in the use of credit, debit or prepaid cards; (xvi) consolidation in the banking and retail industries; and (xvii) the effects of governmental regulation, changes in laws and outcomes of future litigation or investigations.  Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.  More information on potential factors that could affect the Company's financial results and performance is included from time to time in the "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of the Company's periodic reports filed with the SEC, including the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, and its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 to be filed with the SEC.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this release speaks only as of the date on which we make it. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them.
