Tsys today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year with basic earnings per share (EPS) at $0.33 for the quarter, an increase of 3.7%, and $1.30 for the full year, an increase of 13.1% over 2011.

Revenues before reimbursable items for the quarter were $418.6 million, an increase of 2.7%, and $1,618.5 million for the year, an increase of 5.0% over 2011. Total revenues were $479.1 million for the quarter and $1,871.0 million for the full year, increases of 1.5% and 3.4%, respectively, as compared to 2011. Total revenues were impacted by decreases of $4.0 million for the quarter and $15.8 million for the year in reimbursable items.

Operating margin excluding reimbursable items for the year was 22.1%, an increase of 117 basis points over last year. The increase is attributable to a 5.0% increase in revenues before reimbursable items, while expenses before reimbursable items were up only 3.5%.

"We are pleased to report that we exceeded the high end of our net income and EPS guidance for 2012. These results reflect continued strong same client transaction growth of 12.0% in our card issuer processing business. Point-Of-Sale transactions, excluding deconverted clients in the indirect merchant business, were up 9.9% and sales volume in the direct merchant business was up 12.9%. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, sales volume was up 3.2%. Also contributing to our strong results was our consolidated internal revenue growth of 5.1% for the year, combined with acquisitions in the acquiring space, which added 1.8% to our growth in revenues before reimbursable items," said Philip W. Tomlinson, chairman and chief executive officer of TSYS.

"Our guidance for 2013 is included in the table below and we expect 6% to 8 % growth in revenues before reimbursable items and 10% to 12% EPS growth. This is the second year in a row that we have projected double digit EPS growth. We remain focused on executing our strategy of growing our existing businesses, adding strategic acquisitions and deploying capital to enhance shareholder return. In support of this strategy during 2012, we purchased 3.2 million shares of our stock for $75 million, used $190 million to invest in acquisitions, and returned $94 million in dividends to our shareholders, for a total spend of $359 million," said Tomlinson.
