Tradeweb Markets Announces Launch of Follow-On Offering and Preliminary Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tradeweb Markets Inc. (Nasdaq: TW), a leading, global operator of electronic marketplaces for rates, credit, equities and money markets, today announced the launch of an underwritten offering of 14,800,000 shares of its Class A common stock, subject to market conditions and other factors. Tradeweb expects to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2,220,000 shares of Class A common stock at the public offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions.

Tradeweb intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to purchase equity interests from certain existing owners. Refinitiv will continue to own a controlling interest in Tradeweb following the offering. J.P. Morgan, Barclays, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and Morgan Stanley are acting as the joint book-running managers for the offering.

Preliminary Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

The preliminary prospectus included in the registration statement filed by Tradeweb in connection with the proposed offering contains Tradeweb’s preliminary unaudited financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, which have also been included in a Current Report on Form 8-K furnished today with the SEC. Tradeweb is currently in the process of finalizing its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

As a result of the Refinitiv Transaction and pushdown accounting, certain financial information for the period beginning on October 1, 2018, and through and including September 30, 2019, which we refer to as the “Successor period,” and certain financial information for the periods prior to, and including, September 30, 2018, referred to as the “Predecessor period,” are not comparable. See “Basis of Presentation” in Appendix A attached hereto.

 

(1)

As a result of the Reorganization Transactions and the IPO completed in April 2019, certain earnings information is being presented separately for Tradeweb Markets LLC and Tradeweb Markets Inc.

 

 

(a) Presents information for Tradeweb Markets LLC (pre-IPO period).

 

(b) Presents information for Tradeweb Markets Inc. (post-IPO period).

 

 

For more information for pre-IPO period and post-IPO period earnings per share information, see “Basis of Presentation,” “Note 16 — Earnings Per Share” to the unaudited consolidated financial statements of Tradeweb Markets Inc. included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019. and “Note 18 — Net Income Per Share” to the audited consolidated financial statements of Tradeweb Markets LLC, included in Tradeweb’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated June 18, 2019.

 

(2)

For the definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBIT margin, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS and for reconciliations to their most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, see the tables included in Appendix A attached hereto.

 

(3)

Adjusted Diluted EPS includes certain tax related adjustments to reflect an assumed effective tax rate for all periods presented and, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, assumes all LLC Interests are exchanged for shares of Class A or Class B common stock. As a result, management believes that Adjusted Diluted EPS for Tradeweb Markets Inc. and Tradeweb Markets LLC are comparable.
