Summary of Results (GAAP and Non-GAAP)
(in millions, except per share amounts)
Note: Adjusted EBITDA, diluted adjusted EPS, and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures.
Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 2019 Change Revenues $ 689.8 $ 625.0 10.4 % Net income 171.7 134.4 27.8 Adjusted EBITDA 318.0 291.8 9.0 Diluted GAAP EPS 1.04 0.81 28.4 Diluted adjusted EPS 1.17 1.03 13.6 Net cash provided by operating activities 362.6 366.1 (1.0 ) Free cash flow 309.7 320.9 (3.5 )
Consolidated revenues increased 10.4%, and 5.0% on an OCC basis, for first-quarter 2020. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on roof measurement solutions, which adjusts for $4 million of associated revenue in the prior-year period, OCC revenue would have grown 5.8% in first-quarter 2020. Although we experienced a decline in certain of our transactional revenues during the last two weeks of March 2020 related to COVID-19, the impact on first-quarter 2020 results was modest.
Revenues and Revenue Growth by Segment
Revenue Growth Three Months Ended Three Months Ended March 31, March 31, 2020 2020 2019 Reported OCC Underwriting & rating $ 344.1 $ 305.9 12.5 % 8.4 % Claims 145.3 147.7 (1.6 ) 0.4 Insurance 489.4 453.6 7.9 5.9 Energy and Specialized Markets 160.1 128.4 24.6 2.6 Financial Services 40.3 43.0 (6.4 ) 3.0 Revenues $ 689.8 $ 625.0 10.4 5.0
Insurance segment revenue grew 7.9% in the first quarter of 2020 and 5.9% on an OCC basis. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on roof measurement solutions, Insurance revenue would have grown 6.9% on an OCC basis.
- Underwriting & rating revenue increased 12.5% in the quarter and 8.4% on an OCC basis, resulting primarily from an annual increase in prices derived from continued enhancements to the content of the solutions within industry-standard insurance programs as well as selling expanded solutions to existing customers in commercial and personal lines. In addition, catastrophe modeling services contributed to the growth.
- Claims revenue declined 1.6% in the quarter and grew 0.4% on an OCC basis. Both reported and OCC growth were negatively impacted by the injunction ruling against roof measurement solutions as well as tougher comparisons from the prior-year period. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on roof measurement solutions, Claims revenue would have grown 3.6% on an OCC basis. Growth was primarily driven by claims analytics revenue and repair cost estimating solutions revenue.
Energy and Specialized Markets segment revenue increased 24.6% in the quarter and 2.6% on an OCC basis, resulting primarily from growth in core research, increases in environmental health and safety service revenues and weather analytics revenues. These increases were partially offset by a decline in market and cost intelligence solutions due to implementation projects that did not reoccur and a decline in consulting revenues.
Financial Services segment revenue decreased 6.4% in the quarter and grew 3.0% on an OCC basis. The impact of portfolio transactions that closed in the quarter resulted in a net decrease in reported revenues. On an OCC basis, revenue growth was driven by increases in management information and regulatory reporting as well as fraud and credit risk, offset in part by declines in portfolio management and spend-informed analytics.
Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA
During first-quarter 2020, net income increased 27.8%, driven by organic growth in the business, gains from dispositions, and a lower level of acquisition-related costs (earn-outs). This was partially offset by the timing shift of a $10 million expense related to annual long-term equity incentive grants that was recognized in the first quarter of this year as compared to the second quarter in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA increased 9.0%, and 7.4% on an OCC basis, negatively impacted by the above-mentioned timing shift in expense. Normalizing for the impact of the injunction on roof measurement solutions, OCC adjusted EBITDA would have grown 9.0% for first-quarter 2020.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA by Segment
Note: Consolidated EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. Margin is calculated as a percentage of revenues.
Three Months Ended March 31, EBITDA EBITDA Margin Adjusted EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA Growth Adjusted EBITDA Margin 2020 2019 2020 2019 2020 2019 2020 Reported 2020 2020 2019 OCC Insurance $ 272.4 $ 231.3 55.7 % 51.0 % $ 256.6 $ 238.8 7.5 % 8.0 % 52.4 % 52.7 % Energy and Specialized Markets 50.2 37.2 31.4 29.0 50.2 39.7 26.3 1.8 31.4 30.9 Financial Services 14.7 13.3 36.4 30.8 11.2 13.3 (16.0 ) 15.9 27.6 30.8 Consolidated $ 337.3 $ 281.8 48.9 45.1 $ 318.0 $ 291.8 9.0 7.4 46.1 46.7
Earnings Per Share
Diluted EPS increased 28.4% to $1.04 for the first quarter of 2020 due to the gains on sales of disposed businesses and a decrease in acquisition-related costs (earn-outs). Diluted adjusted EPS grew 13.6% to $1.17 for the first quarter of 2020, reflecting organic growth in the business and lower average share count.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $363 million for the first quarter of 2020, down 1.0%. Capital expenditures were $53 million for the first quarter of 2020, up 17.0%. Free cash flow was $310 million for the first quarter of 2020, down 3.5%, primarily due to an increase in interest payments and the timing of certain customer collections and operating expense payments.
Free cash flow represented 97.4% of adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020, compared with 110.0% in the prior-year period.
On March 31, 2020, Verisk paid a cash dividend of 27 cents per share of common stock issued and outstanding to the holders of record as of March 13, 2020.
On April 29, 2020, Verisk's Board of Directors approved a cash dividend of 27 cents per share of common stock issued and outstanding, payable on June 30, 2020, to holders of record as of June 15, 2020.
Including the accelerated share repurchase (ASR) settled in the first quarter of 2020, the company repurchased approximately 1.1 million shares at an average price of $154.56, for a total cost of $174 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as supplemental information regarding its operating results. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures reported by other companies. The company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the company's management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the company, for budgeting and planning purposes, and for evaluating the performance of senior management.
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Expenses: EBITDA represents GAAP net income adjusted for (i) depreciation and amortization of fixed assets; (ii) amortization of intangible assets; (iii) interest expense; and (iv) provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for acquisition-related costs (earn-outs), gain/loss from dispositions (which include businesses held for sale), nonrecurring gain/loss, and interest income on the subordinated promissory note. Adjusted EBITDA expenses represent adjusted EBITDA net of revenues. The company believes these measures are useful and meaningful because they allow for greater transparency regarding the company's operating performance and facilitate period-to-period comparison.
Adjusted Net Income and Diluted Adjusted EPS: Adjusted net income represents GAAP net income adjusted for (i) amortization of intangible assets, net of tax; (ii) acquisition-related costs (earn-outs), net of tax; (iii) gain/loss from dispositions (which include businesses held for sale), net of tax; (iv) nonrecurring gain/loss, net of tax; and (v) interest income on the subordinated promissory note, net of tax. Diluted adjusted EPS represents adjusted net income divided by weighted-average diluted shares. The company believes these measures are useful and meaningful because they allow evaluation of the after-tax profitability of the company's results excluding the after-tax effect of acquisition-related costs and nonrecurring items.
Free Cash Flow: Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP minus payments for capital expenditures. The company believes free cash flow is an important measure of the recurring cash generated by the company's operations that may be available to repay debt obligations, repurchase its stock, invest in future growth through new business development activities, or make acquisitions.
Organic Constant Currency (OCC): The company's operating results, such as, but not limited to, revenue and adjusted EBITDA, reported in U.S. dollars are affected by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations because the underlying foreign currencies in which it transacts change in value over time compared with the U.S. dollar; accordingly, it presents certain constant currency financial information to assess how the company performed excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. The company calculates constant currency by translating comparable prior-year-period results at the currency exchange rates used in the current period. The company defines "organic" as operating results excluding the effect of recent acquisitions and dispositions (which include businesses held for sale) that have occurred over the past year. An acquisition is included as organic at the beginning of the calendar quarter that occurs subsequent to the one-year anniversary of the acquisition date. Once an acquisition is included in its current-period organic base, its comparable prior-year-period operating results are also included to calculate organic growth. A disposition (which includes a business held for sale) is excluded from organic at the beginning of the calendar quarter in which the disposition occurs (or when a business meets the held-for-sale criteria under U.S. GAAP). Once a disposition is excluded from its current-period organic base, its comparable prior-year-period operating results are also excluded to calculate organic growth. The organic presentation enables investors to assess the growth of the business without the impact of recent acquisitions for which there is no prior-year comparison. A disposition's results are removed from all prior periods presented to allow for comparability. The company believes organic constant currency is a useful and meaningful measure to enhance investors' understanding of the continuing operating performance of its business and to facilitate the comparison of period-to-period performance because it excludes the impact of foreign exchange rate movements, acquisitions, and dispositions.

See page 11 for a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA expenses, a reconciliation of diluted adjusted EPS, and a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow.
