June 12, 2018 (Hoboken, NJ) –
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JW-A and JW-B), a global research and education company, today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended April 30, 2018.

FOURTH QUARTER 2018 HIGHLIGHTS
Ø
Reported results (GAAP) reflected growth in Revenue (+6%), Operating Income (+18%) and EPS (+16%), driven by strong operational performance and favorable impacts from foreign currency.
Ø
At constant currency, growth in Revenue (+1%), Adjusted Operating Income (+15%) and Adjusted EPS (+6%) resulted from strong performance in Research, growth in Solutions, and broader operating efficiencies.
Ø
A signature milestone was achieved with the launching of Wiley Online Library, one of the largest and most authoritative collections of online research journals, books, and resources, on Wiley's industry-leading Atypon Literatum platform.

FISCAL YEAR 2018 HIGHLIGHTS
Ø
Reported results (GAAP) reflected growth in Revenue (+5%), Operating Income (+16%) and EPS (+70%), driven by strong operational performance, benefits from foreign currency, and a one-time benefit from US tax reform.
Ø
At constant currency, growth in Revenue (+1%), Adjusted Operating Income (+7%) and Adjusted EPS (+3%) resulted from strong performance in Research, growth in Solutions, and broader operating efficiencies, partially offset by higher taxes.
Ø
Cash Provided by Operating Activities (+19% to $374 million) and Free Cash Flow less Product Development Spending (+35% to $224 million) grew as a result of earnings performance and working capital improvements.
Ø
The Company's transformation to digital continues with revenue from digital products now 73% of total revenue, up from 68% in prior year.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY
"We are pleased with our team's performance this year, which landed us ahead of guidance, and we are energized about the future," said Brian Napack, President and CEO.  "Wiley's strong brands, publishing assets, technology platforms, market relationships and capacity to invest position us well to benefit from the ongoing transformations in research and education.  We will continue to invest in the success of our customers in critical areas such as open access publishing, researcher and student productivity, classroom-to-career pathways and workforce reskilling and upskilling.  We are also investing in business optimization and operational excellence across the organization, which will result in improved speed, agility, and effectiveness."

FINANCIAL SUMMARY
Wiley provides non-GAAP financial measures such as "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted Operating Income," "Adjusted CTP," "Free Cash Flow less Product Development Spending," and results on a Constant Currency basis to assess underlying business performance and trends.  Management believes non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude the impact of restructuring charges and credits and certain other items, provide for a more comparable basis to analyze operating results and earnings.  See the reconciliations of non-GAAP financials and explanations of the uses of non-GAAP measures in the supplementary information accompanying this press release.

Wiley recorded favorable foreign currency variances in the quarter of approximately $21 million in revenue, $6 million in operating income, and $0.07 in EPS due to changes in exchange rates and functional currency gains related to calendar year 2017 journal subscriptions in the UK.

·
Revenue increased due to growth in Research (+10% reported, +5% constant currency) and Solutions (+6% reported, +2% constant currency), which more than offset a decline in Publishing (-2% reported, -5% constant currency).
o
Research growth was driven by Open Access (+59% reported, +51% constant currency) and Journal Subscriptions (+7% reported, +2% constant currency).
o
Publishing performance reflected a decline in STM and Professional Publishing (-5% reported, -10% constant currency), which more than offset growth in Educational Publishing (+5% reported, +2% constant currency) and Course Workflow/WileyPLUS (+13% reported, +12% constant currency).
o
Solutions businesses all exhibited growth with increases in Education Services (+1% reported and constant currency), Professional Assessment (+5% reported, +4% constant currency), and Corporate Learning (+15% reported, +2% at constant currency).
·
GAAP Operating Income performance reflected favorable foreign exchange (+$6 million), which offset the impact of a $2.0 million restructuring charge and a $1.7 million restructuring credit in the prior year.  Adjusted Operating Income growth was mainly due to savings from efficiency gains and higher revenue.
o
Research Contribution to Profit (CTP) grew +6% on a reported basis, but declined -2% adjusted at constant currency.  Revenue growth was offset by higher royalty costs in licensed society publishing.
o
Publishing CTP declined -10% on a reported basis, -19% adjusted at constant currency due to lower revenue.
o
Solutions CTP grew +81% on a reported basis, 80% adjusted at constant currency due to higher revenue and increased operating efficiency.
o
Corporate Expenses reduced by 10% on a reported basis and 22% on an adjusted basis at constant currency largely due to the timing of charges in the prior year.
·
GAAP EPS growth primarily reflected the fourth quarter impact of favorable foreign exchange (+$0.07 per share), which offset the impact of restructuring charges in 2018 and credits in 2017 (+0.04 per share). Adjusted EPS growth was due to higher adjusted operating income.

Wiley recorded favorable foreign currency variances in the fiscal year of approximately $60 million in revenue, $28 million in operating income, and $0.34 in EPS due to changes in exchange rates and functional currency gains related to calendar year 2017 journal subscriptions in the UK.

·
Revenue growth was driven primarily by Research (+9% reported, +4% constant currency) and Solutions (+5% reported, +3% constant currency), which more than offset a decline in Publishing (-2% reported, -4% constant currency).
o
Research growth primarily reflected increases for Open Access (+37% reported, +34% constant currency) and Journal Subscriptions (+6% reported, flat constant currency), as well as the full-year results of Atypon, which was acquired in October 2016 (+73%, including $14 million due to full year contribution).
o
Publishing revenue performance mainly reflected market conditions, with STM and Professional Publishing down 1% on a reported basis and 3% at constant currency, and Educational Publishing down 5% on a reported basis and 6% at constant currency.
o
Solutions growth reflected increases in Education Services (+7% reported and constant currency) and Professional Assessment (+2% reported and constant currency). Corporate Learning rose 6% on a reported basis but declined 1% at constant currency.
·
GAAP Operating Income growth was mainly due to higher revenue, as well as favorable foreign exchange (+$28 million).  Adjusted Operating Income growth was primarily a result of savings from efficiency initiatives and restructuring actions, as well as higher revenue.
o
Research CTP increased 9% on a reported basis, but was flat on an adjusted constant currency basis.  Revenue growth was largely offset by higher royalty costs in licensed society publishing.
o
Publishing CTP declined 1% on a reported basis but increased 2% on an adjusted constant currency basis.  The improvement mainly reflected savings from efficiency initiatives and restructuring actions, which more than offset the revenue decline.
o
Solutions CTP grew 49% on a reported basis and 56% on an adjusted constant currency basis, driven by increased operating efficiencies.
o
Corporate Expenses reduced by 2% on a reported basis and on an adjusted basis at constant currency, driven by efficiency initiatives and restructuring actions.
·
GAAP EPS growth primarily reflected the current year impact of the U.S. Tax Act (+$0.43 per share) and favorable foreign exchange (+$0.34 per share), as well as other net charges in the prior year, including an unfavorable ruling in a Germany income tax dispute ($0.85 per share) and a pension settlement ($0.09 per share).  These offset higher restructuring charges and foreign exchange losses associated with intercompany transactions in the current fiscal year. Adjusted EPS growth was due to higher adjusted operating income and lower interest expense, which more than offset favorable tax credits in the prior year of $0.12 per share.
·
Cash Provided by Operating Activities increased 19% to $374 million due to earnings performance and working capital improvements. Free Cash Flow less Product Development Spending growth (+35%) was primarily attributable to the increase in Cash Provided by Operating Activities.  Capital expenditures, including Technology, Property, and Equipment and Product development spending, rose $1 million to $150 million.
·
Shareholder Return: In June, Wiley raised its annual dividend for the 24th consecutive year.  The Company utilized $74 million of cash for dividends and $40 million for share repurchases with an average per share cost of $55.65. In the prior year, the Company utilized $72 million and $50 million for dividends and share repurchases, respectively.

Wiley anticipates low-single digit Revenue growth in Research and Solutions offset by a low-single digit Revenue decline in Publishing.

Adjusted EPS is expected to decline primarily due to increased investment in revenue growth initiatives, particularly in Research and Education Services.
·
Cash Provided by Operating Activities reflects the impact of growth investments and substantially lower gains in working capital.
·
Capital Expenditures are expected to decline modestly with the completion of the Company's headquarters transformation.  Increased investment is expected in areas of product development and business optimization.

 Notes:
               
 (A)
Adjusted results exclude restructuring charges (credits) and other related charges associated with the Company's Restructuring and Reinvestment Program.  For the three months ended April 30, 2018 and 2017, there were charges of $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share and credits of $1.7 million, or $(0.02) per share, respectively.  For the years ended April 30, 2018 and 2017, there were charges of $28.6 million, or $0.39 per share, and charges of $13.4 million, or $0.15 per share, respectively.
 
 (B)
In 2017, we adjusted results to exclude foreign exchange gains and losses associated with intercompany transactions.  The prior year adjusted earnings per share amounts have been recasted to conform to current year presentation. For the three months ended April 30, 2018 and 2017, there were gains of $0.9 million or $(0.01) per share and losses of $0.4 million, respectively.  For the years ended April 30, 2018 and 2017, there were losses of $10.7 million, or $0.15 per share, and losses of $1.0 million, or $0.01 per share, respectively.
 
 (C)
In connection with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act enacted on December 22, 2017, for the three months and year ended April 30, 2018, the Company recorded an estimated income tax provision of $0.1 million and $25.1 million, or $(0.43) per share, respectively. Given the significant complexity of the Act, anticipated guidance from the U.S. Treasury, and potential additional guidance from the SEC or the Financial Accounting Standards Board, these estimates may be adjusted within 12 months of the enactment date.
 
 (D)
As previously disclosed and as reported in the Company's SEC filings, the Company announced a voluntary, limited-time opportunity for terminated vested employees who were participants in the U.S. defined benefit retirement plan to elect a single lump sum payment of accumulated benefits. The election period closed on August 29, 2016. The total charge including a prorata portion of the unamortized net actuarial loss was included in operating and administrative expenses and was $8.8 million, or $0.09 per share.  The aggregate amount of payments under this one time election was $28.3 million, which was paid from pension plan assets in October 2016.
 
 (E)
As previously disclosed in the Company's SEC filings, the Company was appealing an unfavorable tax ruling in Germany related to tax benefits obtained through an increase in the tax deductible basis of certain merged German subsidiaries.  In September 2016, the German Federal Fiscal Court issued an unfavorable final judgement in Wiley's longstanding tax appeal. As a consequence, the Company reported a $49.1 million charge, or $0.85 per share, in fiscal year 2017.
 
 (F)
As previously disclosed in the Company's SEC filings, the adjusted results for the year ended April 30, 2017 exclude deferred tax benefits of $2.6 million, or $0.04 per share, associated with tax legislation enacted in the second quarter of fiscal year 2017 in the United Kingdom that reduced the U.K. corporate income tax rates by 1 percentage point in 2020.  The benefits reflect the remeasurement of the Company's deferred tax balances from 18% to the new income tax rate of 17% effective April 1, 2020 and had no current cash tax impact.

The Reconciliation of US GAAP to Adjusted EPS - Diluted table may not foot due to rounding. The supplementary information included in this press release for 2018 is preliminary and subject to change prior to the filing of our upcoming Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(1) The supplementary information included in this press release for 2018 is preliminary and subject to change prior to the filing of our upcoming Annual Report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
 

JOHN WILEY & SONS, INC.
Explanation of Usage of NON-GAAP Performance Measures
 
In this earnings release and supplemental information, management presents the following non-GAAP performance measures:
·        Adjusted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted EPS");
·        Free Cash Flow less product development spending;
·        Adjusted Operating Income and margin;
·        Adjusted Contribution to Profit ("CTP") and margin; and
·        Results on a constant currency basis.
 
Management uses these non-GAAP performance measures as supplemental indicators of our operating performance and financial position as well for internal reporting and forecasting purposes, when publicly providing its outlook, to evaluate the Company's performance and to evaluate and calculate incentive compensation. Non-GAAP performance measures do not have standardized meanings prescribed by US GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as alternatives to measures of financial results under US GAAP.
 
The Company presents these non-GAAP performance  measures in addition to GAAP financial results because it believes that these non-GAAP performance measures provide useful information to certain investors and financial analysts for operational trends and comparisons across accounting periods. The use of these non-GAAP performance measures provides a consistent basis to evaluate operating profitability and performance trends by excluding items that we do not consider to be controllable activities for this purpose. For example:
 
·        Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Operating Profit, Adjusted Contribution to Profit provide a more comparable basis to analyze operating results and earnings and are measures commonly used by shareholders to measure our performance.
 
·        Free Cash Flow less product development spending helps assess our ability, over the long term, to create value for our shareholders as it represents cash available to repay debt, pay common dividends and fund share repurchases and new acquisitions.
 
·        Results on a constant currency basis removes distortion from the effects of foreign currency movements to provide better comparability of our business trends from period to period. We measure our performance before the impact of foreign currency (or at "constant currency"), which means that we apply the same foreign currency exchange rates for the current and equivalent prior period.
 
In addition, the Company has historically provided these or similar non-GAAP performance measures and understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing the Company's operating margins, and net income and comparing the Company's financial performance to that of its peer companies and competitors. Based on interactions with investors, we also believe that our non-GAAP performance measures are regarded as useful to our investors as supplemental to our GAAP financial results, and that there is no confusion regarding the adjustments or our operating performance to our investors due to the comprehensive nature of our disclosures.
