The company's strong revenue performance in the third quarter was driven by a 10.8% increase in technology services revenue on a constant currency basis, or 9.3% on a reported basis. Information offerings revenue was up 1.8% on a constant currency basis, or flat on a reported basis. Adjusted EBITDA increased 10.5% on a constant currency basis, or 6.1% reported to $221 million, compared with $209 million in the third quarter of 2013. Net income was $47 million, compared with a net loss of $20 million in last year's third quarter. Reported adjusted net income was $125 million, down $9 million from $134 million in the prior year's quarter, as the benefit of Adjusted EBITDA growth and lower interest expense was more than offset by a $47 million tax refund received in 2013. Diluted earnings per share was $0.14 compared with a loss of $0.07 per share in the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.37 compared with $0.47 in the prior-year period.

The company reported operating income of $93 million compared to $100 million, income before income taxes of $58 million compared to loss before income taxes of $40 million, net cash provided by operating activities of $191 million compared to $212 million, capital expenditures of $14 million compared to $8 million, additions to computer software of $26 million compared to $22 million and free cash flow of $151 million compared to $182 million for the last year. For the nine months, the company’s revenue increased 5.8% on a constant currency basis, or 5.0% to $1,963 million on a reported basis, compared to $1,870 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA increased 9.8% on a constant currency basis, or 7.5% to $664 million on a reported basis, compared with $618 million in the first nine months of 2013. The year-to-date net loss was $197 million or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with breakeven results in the prior-year period, with the decline due to one-time IPO-related charges. Adjusted net income was $329 million or $1.02 per diluted share, up $23 million from $306 million or $1.06 per diluted share in the prior-year period. The company reported operating income of $121 million compared to $276 million, loss before income taxes of $338 million compared to $6 million, net cash used in operating activities of $37 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $336 million, capital expenditures of $59 million compared to $25 million, additions to computer software of $70 million compared to 53 million and free cash out flow of $166 million compared to free cash flow of $258 million for the last year.

Consistent with previous guidance, on a constant currency basis, IMS Health now expects revenue growth of 5.5% to 5.7%, adjusted EBITDA growth of 9.0% to 9.8% against previous guidance of 5% to 6% revenue growth and 7.5% to 9% adjusted EBITDA growth and adjusted net income growth of 20% to 21%. As a result of the headwind created by the broad strengthening of the USD against foreign currencies, on a reported basis IMS Health now expects revenue growth of 3.8% to 4.0%, Adjusted EBITDA growth of 5.8 to 6.6%, and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.34 to $1.36. Unlevered free cash flow is now projected to be 70% to 75% of adjusted EBITDA, excluding the investment for the company's new global delivery center in Bangalore. The company expects full year adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.40 to $1.42 on a constant currency basis.

On a reported basis, including FX, the company narrowing guidance for adjusted net income growth to 15% to 16% and this remains within previously issued guidance range despite the adverse impact of FX.

IMS Health Mulls Acquisitions

IMS Health Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:IMS) is looking for acquisitions. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ron Bruehlman said, “On the first part of your question, Manav, there really is going to be no point at which the organic and the reported growth equalize because we are going to continue to do acquisition every quarter. So, yes, we will pass the anniversary of a given acquisition, but we will have new acquisitions coming in all the time. The only thing we can do is try to give you some indication of how acquisitions are contributing on a quarter-to-quarter, year-to-year.”
