Jackson Hewitt Reports Fiscal 2009 Annual Results

2009 Fiscal Year Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share of $1.02

Parsippany, N.J. // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc. ("Jackson Hewitt") (NYSE: JTX), today reported results for the 2009 fiscal year ended April 30, 2009. Jackson Hewitt reported net income of $19.5 million, or $0.68 per diluted share for the 2009 fiscal year, versus net income of $32.4 million, or $1.09 per diluted share for the 2008 fiscal year. On an adjusted basis, Jackson Hewitt's net income in the 2009 fiscal year was $29.0 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, versus adjusted net income of $40.8 million, or $1.37 per diluted share for the 2008 fiscal year. A schedule entitled Adjusted Results of Operations, which reconciles the reported and adjusted results, accompanies this earnings release.

"Jackson Hewitt has many strengths on which to build, including a sizeable base of nearly three million customers, outstanding employees, a well-established brand, committed franchisees, and a solid distribution network," said Harry W. Buckley, who was appointed president and chief executive officer of Jackson Hewitt on June 4, 2009. "Our Board of Directors has charged me with executing a strategy that will reverse our declining profitability and put Jackson Hewitt on a course toward profitable growth, and our organization is fully focused on this mission."

"Our near-term focus is to drive changes in our business that will positively impact performance in the 2010 tax season. Working closely with the Board and one of the world's preeminent management consulting firms, we are identifying the issues that caused our business to underperform and are using that knowledge to strengthen our top- and bottom-line performance and improve shareholder value," continued Buckley. "Striving for quality and excellence in everything we do, and assuring we have both the products and services and marketing strategies in place to retain and attract new tax preparation customers, will be key aspects of our plans."

2009 Full Year Consolidated Results

Total reported revenues for the 2009 fiscal year were $248.3 million, versus $278.5 million for the 2008 full year. The 10.8% revenue decline resulted from a year-over-year reduction in the number of tax returns prepared, excluding the Economic Stimulus Program tax returns in fiscal 2008, offset in part by increased revenues per tax return versus the prior year.

As previously reported, Jackson Hewitt's national network of franchised and company-owned offices prepared 2.96 million tax returns in 2009, a decline of 12.9% compared to the prior fiscal year, excluding the impact of incremental Economic Stimulus Program tax returns from the 2008 fiscal year. Average revenues per tax return across all of Jackson Hewitt's operations were $206.17, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 7.4%, excluding the lower-priced Economic Stimulus Program tax returns from the 2008 fiscal year. The network facilitated 2.75 million financial products, a decrease of 11.6% versus the prior year, primarily as a result of the decline in tax returns prepared versus the prior year. Financial products facilitated include refund anticipation loans, assisted refunds and Gold Guarantee(R) products.

Royalties and Marketing and Advertising revenues for the 2009 fiscal year were $104.6 million, versus $110.5 million in the 2008 fiscal year, due primarily to the decline in tax returns prepared by franchisees. Financial product fees for the 2009 fiscal year were $59.9 million, versus $71.5 million in the prior year, a decline of 16.3%, which resulted primarily from fewer tax returns prepared versus the prior year. The decline in financial product fees was also impacted by a lower relative fixed fee component in 2009 under Jackson Hewitt's current bank partner contracts.

Other revenues were $6.2 million in the 2009 fiscal year, down from $9.9 million a year ago due to fewer sales of new territories and lower electronic filing fees resulting from the decline in the number of tax returns prepared. Service revenues from company-owned office operations were $77.7 million in 2009, versus $86.5 million in 2008, due primarily to the decline in tax returns prepared.

Total reported expenses for the 2009 fiscal year were $202.4 million, reflecting a decline of $9.4 million, or 4.4% versus the 2008 fiscal year. Excluding the expense related adjustments detailed in the Adjusted Results of Operations schedule in the attached financial tables, total expenses would have been $186.2 million in fiscal 2009, versus $199.1 million in the 2008 fiscal year, a decline of $12.9 million, or 6.5%. The year-over-year decline in adjusted expenses resulted from a reduced overall headcount, as well as improved expense controls in both marketing and company-owned operations as the tax year unfolded.

Debt outstanding at year-end was $232 million, resulting in unused capacity of $168 million under Jackson Hewitt's $400 million credit facility.

2009 Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

For the 2009 fourth quarter, total revenues were $141.2 million, versus $169.4 million in the 2008 fourth quarter, reflecting a decline of 16.7% due primarily to a reduction in the number of tax returns prepared versus last year's fourth quarter, excluding the Economic Stimulus Program tax returns in fiscal 2008, offset in part by increased revenues per tax return.

The 2009 fourth quarter reported net income was $41.3 million, reflecting reported diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $1.45, versus reported net income of $57.5 million and reported diluted EPS of $2.02 in the 2008 fourth quarter. After adjusting the 2009 fourth quarter charges recorded primarily for lease and employee terminations and related expenses, and an April 2009 provision for uncollectible franchisee receivables, the 2009 fourth quarter diluted EPS were $1.69, versus $2.02 in the 2008 fourth quarter.

Franchise Operations

Revenues for the 2009 fiscal year were $170.7 million, versus $192.0 million in the prior year. The 11.1% revenue decline resulted from a 12.6% decline in tax returns prepared, excluding the Economic Stimulus Program tax returns in fiscal 2008, offset in part by increased revenues per tax return versus the prior year. Royalty revenues decreased by $4.0 million to $72.6 million and Marketing and Advertising revenues decreased by $2.0 million to $32.0 million. The average royalty, marketing and advertising rate was 19.65% in the 2009 fiscal year, versus 19.53% in the prior year.

Financial product fees were $59.9 million, versus $71.5 million in the prior year, reflecting decreased financial product counts, as well as the lower fixed fee component previously discussed.

Other revenues declined by $3.7 million, to $6.2 million in fiscal 2009, reflecting lower fees generated from the sale of 70 territories during the year, as compared to 130 territories sold in the 2008 fiscal year, as well as lower electronic filing fees collected from franchisees on the lower number of tax returns prepared.

Cost of franchise operations expenses were $35.1 million, slightly below the prior year level. Marketing and advertising expenses were $36.6 million, versus $40.5 million in the prior year. Income before income taxes declined to $86.7 million, versus $104.0 million in the 2008 fiscal year. The reported results include charges for employee terminations and related expenses of $1.6 million and $0.3 million in fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2008, respectively, as well as a $3.9 million charge related to the April 2009 provision for uncollectible franchisee receivables.

Company-Owned Office Operations

Service revenues from operations were $77.7 million in the 2009 fiscal year, a decline of $8.9 million, or 10.3%, versus the prior year. This revenue decline resulted from a 15.1% year-over-year reduction in the number of tax returns prepared, excluding the Economic Stimulus Program tax returns in fiscal 2008, offset in part by increased revenues per tax return versus the prior year. Total expenses in the company-owned office operations were up 4.2% in the 2009 fiscal year versus last year, primarily due to maintaining a higher average number of store locations throughout 2009 as a result of 2008 acquisitions. Income before income taxes for the 2009 fiscal year reflected a loss of $6.9 million, versus income of $5.4 million in the 2008 fiscal year. The fiscal 2009 reported results include charges of $6.8 million for lease termination and related expenses and $0.8 million for employee terminations and related expenses that were recorded during the year.

Corporate and Other

Reported loss before income taxes was $46.9 million in fiscal 2009, versus a loss of $55.3 million in the 2008 fiscal year. The reduced 2009 fiscal year reported corporate and other loss was favorably affected by 2008 fiscal year internal review expenses of $5.8 million that did not recur in 2009; 2009 fiscal year employee termination and related expenses of $1.0 million, versus $6.1 million in 2008; a $1.5 million favorable insurance settlement in 2009; and, reduced share-based compensation expense of $1.3 million in 2009, versus the prior year. The favorability of these items was offset in part by a $2.8 million expense related to the previously disclosed California Hood litigation settlement that was recorded in the 2009 second quarter and detailed in Jackson Hewitt's previous Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Interest expense for the 2009 fiscal year was $14.6 million, versus $14.4 million in 2008.

A "non-GAAP financial measure" is defined as a numerical measure of a
company's performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be
different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and
presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles
("GAAP") in the United States of America. In the schedule presented
above, the Company has included a comparison of such non-GAAP financial
measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
Management believes the above presentation of net income and earnings per
share on an "as adjusted" basis, which are non-GAAP financial measures, is
necessary to reflect the impact of expenses incurred in connection with
the transactions noted above in order to help investors compare, on an
equivalent basis, the Company's financial results for the current periods
presented to its financial results for the same periods presented last
year.
