Ebix Announces Q1 2022 Revenues of $286.3 Million with 7% Sequential

Growth and Diluted EPS of $0.62 with 24% Sequential Growth

JOHNS CREEK, GA – May 10, 2021 – Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX), a leading international supplier of on-demand software and e-commerce services to the insurance, financial services, travel, healthcare, and e-learning industries today announced the following results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022:



Revenues of $286.3 million



GAAP operating income of $30.1 million and Non-GAAP operating income of $33.8 million



GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.62 and Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.76.

Ebix will host a conference call to review its results today at 11:30 a.m. EDT (details below).

Robin Raina, President & CEO, Ebix, Inc. said. “I am pleased with these results on many fronts. On a constant currency basis, our GAAP revenues grew year-over-year by 1% inspite of a 7% decline in prepaid gift card revenues in Q1 2022 as compared to Q1 2021. Our Q1 2022 revenues grew 7% sequentially by $19.5 million as compared to Q4 2021. Our worldwide revenues, excluding prepaid gift card revenues, increased 11.5% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2022. Our most negatively impacted businesses from COVID-19 within EbixCash Limited experienced solid year-over-year growth in the first quarter of 2022. In total, our travel, foreign exchange, remittance, e-learning and financial technologies businesses combined grew revenues by 28% year-over-year during the first quarter of 2022. Year-over-year growth in travel and foreign exchange revenues was 85% and 109%, respectively. Our e-learning business also benefitted from the reopening of schools in India and contributed a 138% growth rate year-over-year during the first quarter of 2022. Our Risk Compliance Solutions (“RCS”) revenues grew 8% year-over-year due mainly to the 68% growth in our BPO business in India.”

Robin said, “Our year-over-year revenues grew in 7 of the 11 geographies that we operate in. On a year-over-year basis, US revenues grew 2%, Canada revenues grew 2%, Latin America revenues grew 27%, Europe revenues grew 2.5%, Indonesia revenues grew 85%, Philippines revenues grew 55%, while UAE revenues grew by a large percentage number also.”

“Q1 2022 diluted EPS grew 24% sequentially from $0.50 to $0.62 and Non-GAAP diluted EPS grew 15% sequentially from $0.66 to $0.76, in spite of the elevated adverse impact of the Omicron virus on our businesses especially in the first two months of Q1 2022.” Robin added “Our prospective EbixCash IPO process is ongoing. We are working with the regulatory body in India as a part of the review process of our DRHP filing. Once that process is concluded, the EbixCash independent Board will determine the timing of next steps based on market conditions.”

Ebix delivered the following results for the first quarter of 2022:

Revenue: Q1 2022 revenue decreased 1% to $286.3 million compared to $290.1 million in Q1 2021. On a constant currency basis Q1 2022 increased 1% and would have been $7.5 million higher during the first quarter of 2022.

EbixCash total revenues decreased 2.7% year-over-year in Q1 2022. Excluding the prepaid gift card revenues, EbixCash revenues increased year-over-year by 30.7%. Insurance revenues worldwide increased 2.3% year-over-year in Q1 2022, and RCS revenues increased 8.3% year-over-year during Q1 2022.



Exchanges, including EbixCash and our worldwide insurance exchanges, continued to be Ebix’s largest channel, accounting for 94% of Q1 2022 revenues.

Operating Income and Operating Cash: GAAP operating income for Q1 2022 of $30.1 million decreased 3.5% year-over-year from $31.2 million in Q1 2021, primarily due to the rather adverse effect of US$ strengthening after the Ukraine war on our revenues and operating income; along with the increased personnel costs and a decrease in bad debt recovery year-over-year.

Non-GAAP operating income for Q1 2022 accordingly decreased to $33.8 million as compared to $35.6 million in Q1 2021.

Cash generated from operations in Q1 2021 was $5.6 million, as compared to $8.6 million in Q1 2021, primarily because of $15 million of cash taxes paid during Q1 2022.

Earnings per Share: Q1 2022 GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 24% sequentially to $0.62 in Q1 2022 as compared to $0.50 in Q4 2021 and decreased 11.4% as compared to $0.70 in Q1 2021. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for Q1 2022 was $0.76 as compared to $0.66 in Q4 2021.

Our Q1 2022 diluted earnings per share were impacted adversely by the year-over-year increase in interest expense of $2.2 million (approximately $0.07 in diluted earnings per share), though other factors that also impacted it include the adverse effect of US$ strengthening after the Ukraine war on our operating income, the increased general and administrative expenses particularly personnel costs, and a reduction in bad debt recovery.

Net Income: Q1 2022 GAAP net income increased 24.6% sequentially to $19.2 million, while decreasing 11.1% year-over-year from $21.6 million in Q1 2021. Q1 2022 non-GAAP net income increased sequentially by 13.2% to $23.2 million from $20.5 million in Q4 2021.

Q2 2022 Diluted Share Count: As of today, Ebix expects its diluted share count for Q2 2022 to be approximately 30.8 million.

Dividend: Ebix paid its regular quarterly dividend of $0.075 per share in Q1 2022 for a total cost of $2.3 million.

“At Ebix we have had to deal with our share of pain, with the Omicron virus having an impact especially in the first two months of 2022, but the results that we have produced in the first quarter provide positive evidence that Ebix is beginning to see the long-expected rebound from the COVID-19

global pandemic.” Steve Hamil, EVP and Global CFO added, “As of March 31, 2022 the Company had strong liquidity on hand with cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash of $102.2 million. During Q1 2022 we had cash uses that will not be repeated in the next couple of quarters, including over $15 million of cash taxes paid during Q1 2022 that relate to annual income tax requirements, as well as approximately $4 million of additional payments related to our corporate credit facility. We continue to produce substantial Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA plus noncash stock compensation), generating $35.4 million during Q1 2022. As of March 31, 2022, our total debt of $647.6 million was $54.9 million lower than total debt as of March 31, 2021.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Metrics

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Non-GAAP operating income , non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from operations exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation, as well as certain non-recurring expenses that are not associated with our ongoing operating business activities.

Ebix believes that these non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Ebix’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP measures and other metrics to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analysis, for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation, and for budgeting and planning purposes. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures and other metrics to investors.

Management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses and income



are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. Ebix urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including the financial tables at the end of this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.
