DUBLIN, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Aon plc (NYSE: AON) today reported results for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Net income attributable to Aon shareholders increased 32% to $501 million, or $2.33 per share on a diluted basis, compared to $379 million, or $1.66 per share, in the prior year period. Net income per share attributable to Aon shareholders, adjusted for certain items, increased 15% to $2.63 on a diluted basis, including an unfavorable impact of $0.10 per share if prior year period results were translated at current period foreign exchange rates ("foreign currency translation"), compared to $2.29 in the prior year period. Certain items that impacted second quarter results and comparisons with the prior year period are detailed in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures - Operating Income and Diluted Earnings Per Share" on page 10 of this press release.

"In the second quarter, our team delivered strong financial results that reflect the momentum of our business, with 8% organic revenue growth, operating margin expansion of 40 basis points to 26.2%, and EPS growth of 15%," said Greg Case, Chief Executive Officer. "This performance highlights the fundamental strength of our core business and client belief in the exceptional value they receive through our globally connected Aon United operating model."

SECOND QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

Total revenue in the second quarter increased 3% to $3.0 billion compared to the prior year period driven by 8% organic revenue growth, partially offset by a 4% unfavorable impact from foreign currency translation and a 1% unfavorable impact from acquisitions, divestitures, and other.

Total operating expenses in the second quarter increased 3% to $2.3 billion compared to the prior year period due primarily to an increase in expense associated with 8% organic revenue growth, a $58 million charge related to certain legal settlements reached, and investments in long-term growth, partially offset by a $90 million favorable impact from foreign currency translation and a $38 million decrease in transaction costs.

Foreign currency translation in the second quarter had a $19 million, or $0.09 per share, unfavorable impact on U.S. GAAP net income and a $21 million, or $0.10 per share, unfavorable impact on adjusted net income. If currency were to remain stable at today's rates, the Company would expect an unfavorable impact of approximately $0.04 per share, or an approximately $12 million decrease in operating income, in the third quarter of 2022, and an unfavorable impact of approximately $0.07 per share, or an approximately $21 million decrease in operating income, in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Effective tax rate used in the Company's U.S. GAAP financial statements in the second quarter was 18.8%, compared to 34.1% in the prior year period. The primary driver of the change in the U.S. GAAP tax rate was the unfavorable discrete impact of the U.K. tax rate increase in the prior year period. After adjusting to exclude the applicable tax impact associated with certain non-GAAP adjustments, the adjusted effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2022 decreased to 19.3% compared to 20.1% in the prior year period.  The primary drivers of the change in the adjusted tax rate were the geographical distribution of income and a higher net favorable impact from discrete items.

Weighted average diluted shares outstanding decreased to 214.7 million in the second quarter compared to 228.0 million in the prior year period. The Company repurchased 1.7 million Class A Ordinary Shares for approximately $500 million in the second quarter. As of June 30, 2022, the Company had approximately $7.9 billion of remaining authorization under its share repurchase program.

YEAR TO DATE 2022 CASH FLOW SUMMARY

Cash flows provided by operations for the first six months of 2022 decreased $214 million, or 16%, to $1,131 million compared to the prior year period, primarily due to higher receivables and incentive compensation payments following strong performance in 2021, partially offset by strong operating income growth.

Free cash flow, defined as cash flows from operations less capital expenditures, decreased 17%, to $1,063 million for the first six months of 2022 compared to the prior year period, reflecting a decrease in cash flows from operations, partially offset by a $2 million decrease in capital expenditures.

The second quarter revenue reviews provided below include supplemental information related to organic revenue growth, which is a non-GAAP measure that is described in detail in "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures - Organic Revenue Growth and Free Cash Flow" on page 9 of this press release.

Total revenue increased $97 million, or 3%, to $2,983 million compared to the prior year period, including organic revenue growth of 8%, driven by ongoing strong retention and net new business generation.

Commercial Risk Solutions organic revenue growth of 7% reflects growth across every major geography driven by strong retention and management of the renewal book portfolio. Strength in retail brokerage was highlighted by double-digit growth in EMEA, the Pacific, and Latin America, driven by continued strength in core P&C, as well as strong growth in project-related work, partially offset by a decline in transaction solutions due to lower external deal volume. Results also reflect solid growth globally in the affinity business across both consumer and business solutions, including growth in the travel and events practice. On average globally, exposures and pricing were modestly positive, resulting in a modestly positive market impact.

Reinsurance Solutions organic revenue growth of 9% reflects double-digit growth in treaty, driven by continued net new business generation globally and strong retention, as well as strong growth in facultative placements. Market impact was modestly positive on results in the quarter. The majority of revenue in our treaty portfolio is recurring in nature and is recorded in connection with the major renewal periods that take place throughout the first half of the year, while the second half of the year is largely driven by facultative placements and capital markets that are more transactional in nature.

Health Solutions organic revenue growth of 11% reflects double-digit growth across every major geography. Growth in core health and benefits brokerage was driven by strong retention and management of the renewal book portfolio, as well as a positive impact from the timing of certain revenues. Strength in health and benefits included continued growth in advisory work related to wellbeing and resilience. Results also reflect double-digit growth in Human Capital, driven by data and advisory solutions.

Wealth Solutions organic revenue growth of 3% reflects growth in Retirement Consulting, driven by higher utilization rates and project-related work related to pension de-risking and ongoing impacts of regulatory changes. Results also reflect growth in Investments, driven by performance fees, partially offset by a decline in AUM-based delegated investment management revenue.

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ from those set forth in or anticipated by the forward looking statements: changes in the competitive environment, due to macroeconomic conditions or otherwise, or damage to Aon's reputation; fluctuations in currency exchange, interest, or inflation rates that could impact our financial condition or results; changes in global equity and fixed income markets that could affect the return on invested assets; changes in the funded status of Aon's various defined benefit pension plans and the impact of any increased pension funding resulting from those changes; the level of Aon's debt and the terms thereof reducing Aon's flexibility or increasing borrowing costs; rating agency actions that could limit Aon's access to capital and our competitive position; volatility in Aon's global tax rate due to being subject to a variety of different factors, including U.S. tax reform; changes in Aon's accounting estimates or assumptions on Aon's financial statements; limits on Aon's subsidiaries' ability to pay dividends or otherwise make payments to Aon; the impact of legal proceedings and other contingencies, including those arising from acquisition or disposition transactions, errors and omissions and other claims against Aon; the impact of, and potential challenges in complying with, laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which Aon operates, particularly given the global nature of Aon's operations and the possibility of differing or conflicting laws and regulations, or the application or interpretation thereof, across jurisdictions in which Aon does business; the impact of any regulatory investigations brought in Ireland, the U.K., the U.S. and other countries; failure to protect intellectual property rights or allegations that Aon infringes on the intellectual property rights of others; general economic and political conditions in different countries in which Aon does business around the world, including the withdrawal of the U.K. from the European Union; the failure to retain, attract and develop experienced and qualified personnel; international risks associated with Aon's global operations, including impacts from military conflicts or political instability, such as the ongoing Russian war in Ukraine; the effects of natural or man-made disasters, including the effects of the COVID-19 and other health pandemics and the impacts of climate change; any system or network disruption or breach resulting in operational interruption or improper disclosure of confidential, personal, or proprietary data, and resulting liabilities or damage to our reputation; Aon's ability to develop, implement, update and enhance new technology; the actions taken by third parties that perform aspects of Aon's business operations and client services; the extent to which Aon is exposed to certain risks, including lawsuits, related to actions Aon may take in being responsible for making decisions on behalf of clients in Aon's investment consulting business or in other advisory services that Aon currently provides, or may provide in the future; Aon's ability to continue, and the costs and risks associated with, growing, developing and integrating acquired business, and entering into new lines of business or products; Aon's ability to secure regulatory approval and complete transactions, and the costs and risks associated with the failure to consummate proposed transactions; changes in commercial property and casualty markets, commercial premium rates or methods of compensation; Aon's ability to implement initiatives intended to yield cost savings, and the ability to achieve those cost savings; the effects of Irish law on Aon's operating flexibility and the enforcement of judgments against Aon; and adverse effects on the market price of Aon's securities and/or operating results.

Any or all of Aon's forward-looking statements may turn out to be inaccurate, and there are no guarantees about Aon's performance. The factors identified above are not exhaustive. Aon and its subsidiaries operate in a dynamic business environment in which new risks may emerge frequently. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the dates on which they are made. In addition, results for prior periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any future period, particularly in light of macroeconomic conditions and the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Further information concerning Aon and its businesses, including factors that potentially could materially affect Aon's financial results, is contained in Aon's filings with the SEC. See Aon's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for a further discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties applicable to Aon and its businesses. These factors may be revised or supplemented in subsequent reports filed with the SEC. Aon is not under, and expressly disclaims, any obligation to update or alter any forward-looking statement that it may make from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures

This communication includes supplemental information not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"), including organic revenue growth, free cash flow, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, and adjusted earnings per share that exclude the effects of intangible asset amortization and impairment, capital expenditures, and certain other noteworthy items that affected results for the comparable periods. Organic revenue growth includes the impact of intercompany activity and excludes foreign exchange rate changes, acquisitions, divestitures, transfers between revenue lines, fiduciary investment income, and gains or losses on derivatives accounted for as hedges. Currency impact is determined by translating last year's revenue, expense, or net income at this year's foreign exchange rates. Reconciliations to the closest U.S. GAAP measure for each non-GAAP measure presented in this communication are provided in the attached appendices. Supplemental organic revenue growth information and additional measures that exclude the effects of certain items noted above do not affect net income or any other U.S. GAAP reported amounts. Free cash flow is cash flows from operating activity less capital expenditures. The adjusted effective tax rate excludes the applicable tax impact associated with expenses for estimated intangible asset amortization and impairment, and certain other noteworthy items. Management believes that these measures are important to make meaningful period-to-period comparisons and that this supplemental information is helpful to investors. Non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, not in lieu of, Aon's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Industry peers provide similar supplemental information regarding their performance, although they may not make identical adjustments.

Certain noteworthy items impacting operating income in the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 are described in this schedule. The items shown with the caption "as adjusted" are non-GAAP measures.

(2)

As  part of the proposed combination with WTW, which was subsequently terminated in the third quarter of 2021, certain transaction costs were incurred by the Company through the first and second quarter of 2021. These costs included advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees related to the combination, including planned divestitures which have also since been terminated.

(3)

In connection with certain legal settlements reached, a $58 million charge was recognized in the second quarter of 2022.

(4)

Adjusted items are generally taxed at the estimated annual effective tax rate, except for the applicable tax impact associated with certain transaction costs and other charges related to the combination and resulting termination and certain legal settlements, which are adjusted at the related jurisdictional rate. In addition, income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 was adjusted to exclude the impact of remeasuring the net deferred tax liabilities in the U.K. as a result of the corporate income tax rate increase enacted in the second quarter of 2021.
