New York, NY, January 31, 2012 — The McGraw-Hill Companies (NYSE: MHP) today reported adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.63 from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 17% compared to $0.54 for the same period in 2010. On an as reported basis, diluted earnings per share of $0.47 from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2011 decreased 4% compared to $0.49 for the same period in 2010.

 

Excluded in 2011 from fourth quarter earnings per share were a $66 million restructuring charge for severance related to a workforce reduction of approximately 800 positions and $10 million in one-time separation expenses necessary to complete the Growth and Value Plan. Excluded in 2010 from fourth quarter earnings per share were restructuring and lease impairment charges of $27 million.

On an adjusted basis, net income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2011 grew by 10% to $184 million. Revenue in the fourth quarter increased by 2% to $1.5 billion.

 

For the full year 2011, adjusted earnings per share were $2.91, a 9% increase compared to adjusted earnings per share of $2.68 in 2010. The 2011 results exclude a $66 million restructuring charge and $10 million in separation expenses for the Growth and Value Plan. The 2010 results exclude restructuring and lease impairment charges of $27 million and gains on divestitures of $11 million. On an as reported basis, full year 2011 diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $2.75, a 4% increase compared to $2.64 in 2010. On an adjusted basis, net income from continuing operations in 2011 grew by 6% to $883 million. Revenue in 2011 increased by 3% to $6.2 billion.

 

Results in 2011 and 2010 reflect the reclassification of the Broadcasting Group as a discontinued operation. The Broadcasting Group was sold for $212 million in cash to E.W. Scripps on December 30, 2011 for a pre-tax gain of $123 million.

 

“In 2011, despite challenging market conditions, we recorded the second best year in our history from continuing operations for revenue, operating profit and earnings per share,” said Harold McGraw III, chairman, president and chief executive officer of The McGraw-Hill Companies.

“A solid fourth quarter finish by S&P Capital IQ, S&P Indices, Platts and a market-beating performance in U.S. higher education enabled us to overcome volatile global credit markets and historically low funding levels in the U.S. elementary-high school market.

 

“We are making progress in our Growth and Value Plan. We took important steps in 2011 to create two powerful companies, McGraw-Hill Financial and McGraw-Hill Education, with appropriate resources, and we started disaggregating shared services. In the fourth quarter, we eliminated approximately 800 positions across the company and realigned our benefit programs. It’s the first wave in a number of steps to achieve our target of at least $100 million in cost reductions.

 

“In 2011, the newly named McGraw-Hill Financial produced a 9% increase in revenue and a 7% gain in adjusted operating profit. McGraw-Hill Financial will be more global (40% of 2011 revenue) with more recurring revenue (non-transaction and subscriptions account for 66% of 2011 revenue).

 

“McGraw-Hill Education is benefiting from the rapid growth of digital products and sales that is transforming the education market. The shift from a reliance on physical products to more profitable, subscription-based digital services delivering learning solutions represents a significant opportunity to transform the education market. Our agreement earlier this month with Apple to produce K–12 products for the iPad is but the latest development in our effort to make learning more accessible, personalized and engaging.

“As part of the Growth and Value Plan, we also accelerated our share repurchases in 2011. For the year, we spent $1.5 billion, including $845 million in the fourth quarter. That includes $500 million from an accelerated share repurchase transaction announced in December. Even after this significant return of capital to investors, our balance sheet is very strong with limited debt and cash of approximately $1 billion.”

 

The Outlook: “In 2012, we see another challenging year in the global markets, but I am confident in the strength of our businesses and leadership, especially after a good year in 2011,” said Mr. McGraw. “On a consolidated basis for The McGraw-Hill Companies, our baseline earnings per share outlook is $3.25 to $3.35. Actual results will be significantly influenced by the timing of separation and additional cost reduction actions that are still ahead of us. As new leadership teams are formed and implementation plans are finalized, we will provide regular updates on our progress throughout the year. 2012 will be a landmark year in the Corporation’s history and I am truly excited to launch two new McGraw-Hill companies.”

 

In recent months the Board of McGraw-Hill has been engaged in a number of important initiatives as part of its Growth and Value Plan and has been taking into consideration constructive input from major shareholders, JANA Partners and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

 

The Corporation is committed to continue working to deliver value to all shareholders by continually evaluating opportunities to improve its corporate structure and portfolio of businesses, aggressively pursuing additional cost reduction initiatives, accelerating growth and returning substantial value to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends.

S&P Capital IQ/S&P Indices, which was formerly known as the McGraw-Hill Financial segment, increased revenue by 8% in the fourth quarter to $348 million compared to the same period in 2010. Operating profit grew by 29% to $97 million.

 

For the year 2011, revenue for these businesses grew by 14% to $1.4 billion compared to 2010. Excluding the acquisition of TheMarkets.com in September 2010, revenue grew by 11% in 2011. Operating profit increased by 28% to $403 million versus 2010. Revenue for S&P Indices increased by 9% to $80 million in the fourth quarter compared to the same period a year ago. For 2011, S&P Indices’ revenue grew by 18% to $323 million.

 

A surge in exchange-traded derivative contracts and growth in assets under management in exchange-traded funds based on S&P Indices were key factors. The average daily volume of 3,727,000 contracts for the major exchange-traded derivatives represents a 26% year-over-year increase for the fourth quarter. Assets under management in exchange-traded funds based on S&P indices grew in the fourth quarter by 4.5% to end 2011 at $313.7 billion. Fourteen new exchange-traded funds based on S&P Indices were launched in the fourth quarter, bringing the total number now trading on S&P Indices to 378. That compares to a total of 301 at the end of 2010.

Revenue for S&P Capital IQ, which includes Integrated Desktop Solutions, Enterprise Solutions and Research & Analytics, increased by 8% in the fourth quarter to $268 million. Revenue for the full-year 2011 grew by 13% to $1 billion. Growth in subscriptions and platform enhancements enabled Capital IQ to gain share and increase its number of clients to more than 3,800 by the end of 2011, up 14% compared to 2010.

 

Capital IQ, the Global Credit Portal and Global Data Solutions, which includes RatingsXpress, contributed to growth in subscription revenue which increased 13% to $994 million in 2011. Subscriptions accounted for 73% of total revenue for S&P Capital IQ/S&P Indices in 2011.

 

International revenue increased 7% to $111 million in the fourth quarter and 15% for 2011 to $413 million due to continued enhancements of the Capital IQ international database and strong overseas sales, particularly in Europe, for RatingsXpress. Domestic revenue grew by 14% to $941 million in 2011 and represented 70% of the segment’s total.

 

Standard & Poor’s Ratings: Revenue in the fourth quarter decreased by 8% to $434 million, reflecting a decline in global credit markets. Excluding $9 million for severance costs for a workforce reduction of approximately 30 positions, operating profit declined by 24% to $156 million compared to the same period in 2010.

 

Page 6 of 17
 

 

For the full-year 2011, revenue for Standard & Poor’s Ratings increased by 4% to $1.8 billion compared to 2010. Excluding fourth quarter restructuring charges, operating profit declined by 4% to $728 million compared to adjusted results for the same period in 2010, which excluded a $7 million gain on the sale of equity interests in India. Foreign exchange rates favorably affected revenue by $25 million and operating income by $12 million.

 

Non-transaction revenue grew by 5% to $286 million in the fourth quarter, and represented 66% of Standard & Poor’s Ratings’ total revenue. But the growth in non-transaction revenue could only partially offset a 26% decline in transaction revenue to $148 million. Transaction revenue fell in the fourth quarter as concern over the unresolved European debt crisis and a possible economic downturn led to a steep decline in global debt issuance across most asset classes. Global high-yield dollar issuance fell by 63% in the fourth quarter compared to the same period in 2010.

 

Worldwide dollar-volume issuance of investment-grade corporate bonds declined by 9%. Bank loan ratings also declined on weak market fundamentals and increased risk aversion in capital markets.

 

Page 7 of 17
 

 

For 2011, non-transaction revenue grew by 8% to $1.1 billion and represented 63% of Standard & Poor’s Ratings’ total revenue. Non-transaction revenue benefited from the growth of new corporate credits; gains at CRISIL, Standard & Poor’s Ratings’ majority-owned company in India; and non-issue based analytical services. Transaction revenue for 2011 declined 2% to $651 million compared to the same period in 2010.

 

In the face of market uncertainty and volatility, fourth quarter new-issue dollar volume of U.S. corporates declined by 32%. Public finance issuance, soft all year following the elimination of the Buy American Bond stimulus program, decreased by 28% in the fourth quarter. Structured finance issuance decreased by 35% in the U.S. in the fourth quarter. As a result, Standard & Poor’s Ratings’ domestic revenue declined by 13% to $218 million in the fourth quarter compared to the same period in 2010. International revenue was off by 3% to $216 million.

 

Reflecting a strong first half in 2011, Standard & Poor’s Ratings’ domestic revenue for the year slipped only by 1% to $910 million and represented 52% of the total revenue. International revenue, benefiting from a solid performance at CRISIL, grew by 10% to $857 million in 2011 compared to the previous year.

 

Commodities and Commercial: Revenue for these brands, formerly in the Information & Media segment, increased by 8% to $239 million in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. The name change is consistent with the Growth and Value Plan strategy, which included the divestiture of the Broadcasting Group. The fourth quarter and full-year results reflect the reclassification of the Broadcasting Group as a discontinued operation.

Excluding restructuring charges of $6 million for employee severance for a workforce reduction of approximately 100 positions, adjusted fourth quarter operating profit grew by 2% to $47 million compared to $46 million in 2010, which excludes an $11 million restructuring charge.

 

For the full-year 2011, revenue grew by 10% to $896 million compared to 2010. Excluding the fourth quarter restructuring charge, operating profit increased by 13% to $186 million compared to $164 million, which excludes an $11 million restructuring charge.

 

With Platts’ digital subscriptions continuing to drive growth, subscriptions in Commodities and Commercial grew by 13% in 2011 to $562 million and represent 63% of revenue, up from 62% in 2010.

 

Strong demand for Platts’ proprietary content in energy markets produced a 24% increase in fourth quarter revenue to $113 million. For 2011, Platts’ revenue, including the 2011 acquisitions of BENTEK Energy and Steel Business Briefing Group, grew by 22% to $419 million. Excluding the acquisitions of BENTEK Energy and Steel Business Briefing Group in 2011, revenue grew by 15% for the year. Increasing global demand for Platts’ market insights and analytics, driven by favorable market volatility in oil and natural gas, were key drivers of the revenue growth.

Revenue for Commercial content and analytics, which includes J.D. Power & Associates, McGraw-Hill Construction and Aviation Week, declined by 3% in the fourth quarter to $126 million. For 2011, Commercial revenue grew by 2% to $477 million compared to 2010.

 

Solid growth in the global auto business in the fourth quarter and for 2011 contributed to solid improvement at J.D. Power and Associates as global light vehicle sales increased by 4% to 75 million. Market declines continue to slow new business growth in the construction business, although the introduction of new digital products has mitigated the contraction.

 

McGraw-Hill Education: Revenue grew by 4% or $20 million in the fourth quarter to $516 million compared to the same period in 2010. Benefiting from the increased revenue, lower returns, as well as a $37 million decline in expenses, adjusted operating profit increased by $57 million to $72 million in the fourth quarter compared to the same period in 2010. Expenses benefited from lower prepublication amortization, lower reserve requirements, tight overall cost control and lower selling and marketing expenses in the elementary-high school market given the reduced revenue opportunities in 2011. Excluded from 2011 adjusted operating profit was a $34 million restructuring charge for severance related to a workforce reduction of approximately 540 positions.

For the year 2011, revenue declined by 6% to $2.3 billion compared to 2010. Excluding the fourth quarter restructuring charge, adjusted operating profit declined by 1% to $354 million from the prior year’s adjusted results, which excluded a $4 million gain on the sale of a secondary school business in Australia. Foreign exchange favorably affected revenue by $13 million and operating profit by $5 million.

 

Revenue for McGraw-Hill Higher Education, Professional and International Group increased by 8% in the fourth quarter to $385 million compared to the same period last year. For 2011, revenue increased by 1% to $1.3 billion compared to 2010.

 

With digital sales growing by more than 40%, U.S. higher education closed the fourth quarter in 2011 on an upswing and increased market share for the year. Tutorial capabilities employing sophisticated software are creating significant new opportunities to sell digital products and services like McGraw-Hill’s LearnSmart to students in the higher education market. Tegrity, a lecture capture service, is also showing solid increases. As a result, the rapid growth of homework management products and services combined with increasing e-book sales contributed to a broad digital growth platform on college campuses.

 

Technology is also the key to a growing customized digital business in higher education. McGraw-Hill Create, designed for instructors who want to shape their own curriculums and learning solutions, produced solid gains for customized products in 2011. Digital revenue represented more than 20% of U.S. higher education total sales in 2011.

In professional markets, the rapid adoption of new e-reading devices is driving significant growth for the more than 6,000 e-books offered by McGraw-Hill, offsetting a decline in traditional print book sales. Subscriptions to McGraw-Hill’s content-rich online products and services in science, medicine and engineering also are producing double-digit growth. In addition, more than 200 downloadable apps across medical, technical, business, and other test preparation categories are now in the market for McGraw-Hill professional products. In an expanding market for e-books, mobile devices and online subscription services, digital products accounted for nearly 30% of revenue in McGraw-Hill’s professional markets in 2011.

 

In international markets, revenue decreased in the fourth quarter and finished the full year slightly below 2010. During 2011, growth in Latin America, India and Canada was offset by lower sales in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa where regional conditions affected some markets.

 

Revenue for the McGraw-Hill School Education Group decreased by 5% to $131 million in the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. For 2011, revenue declined by 14% to $949 million compared to 2010.

 

Reduced instructional materials funding in the face of state and local budget pressures led to a 13% decrease in 2011 state new adoption market opportunities compared to 2010 and a decline in open territory sales for the fourth quarter and the full year 2011. For the McGraw-Hill School Education Group, the drop in revenue was primarily driven by a reduced participation rate in the 2011 new adoption market in several states due to an uncertain outlook for funding and by challenging comparisons in Texas and Florida, where large orders in 2010 did not repeat owing to the change in subject categories being purchased.

 

Page 12 of 17
 

 

In 2010, the McGraw-Hill School Education Group competed for 97% of the available dollars in a state new adoption market estimated at $850 million to $875 million and captured a 30% share. In 2011, the McGraw-Hill School Education Group participated in approximately 75% of a sharply reduced state new adoption market and captured approximately 25% of the total available dollars. However, McGraw-Hill School Education won approximately 33% of the available dollars in the state new adoption markets in which it chose to participate.

 

In the testing market, gains in custom and off-the-shelf products offset softness in formative products during the fourth quarter. Overall, testing was flat for 2011.

 

Corporate expense: Adjusted fourth quarter corporate expense increased $7 million compared to adjusted corporate expense for the same period last year, largely driven by increased professional fees. For the full year, adjusted corporate expense increased $9 million or 5%. 2011 results exclude $17 million in restructuring charges for a workforce reduction of approximately 120 positions and $10 million in one-time separation expenses. 2010 excluded a one-time charge of $16 million related to subleasing excess space in the Corporation’s New York facilities.

 

Page 13 of 17
 

 

Balance sheet and cash flow: Cash and short-term investments at the end of the year were $973 million, a $575 million decline from December 31, 2010. The decline was driven by $1.5 billion in share repurchases, partially offset by strong free cash flow. Free cash flow after dividends (see Exhibits 3 and 9) was $807 million, a decline of $74 million from 2010 due to challenging working capital comparisons. Debt was $1.2 billion at year-end, unchanged from prior year. No commercial paper was outstanding.

 

Share Repurchases: In the fourth quarter, share repurchases were $845 million, including $500 million through an accelerated share repurchase transaction. For the year, share repurchases were $1.5 billion and 34.7 million shares were received, including a substantial majority of the shares underlying the accelerated share repurchase transaction. The Corporation finished the year with 276 million basic shares outstanding. Fully diluted shares outstanding at December 31, 2011 were approximately 283 million.
