MoneyGram International Inc. (MGI) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-31. Moneygram Intl has a market cap of $971.4 million; its shares were traded at around $17.89 with and P/S ratio of 0.8.



Highlight of Business Operations:

Investment revenue in 2011 decreased $4.4 million, or 21 percent, compared to 2010. Lower average investment balances from the run-off of certain official check financial institution customers terminated in prior periods drove $2.5 million of the decrease, while lower yields earned on our investment portfolio drove a decrease of $1.9 million.

Investment revenue in 2010 decreased $11.9 million, or 36 percent, compared to 2009. Lower yields earned on our investment portfolio drove $7.5 million of the decrease, while lower average investment balances from the run-off of certain official check financial institution customers terminated in prior periods drove $4.4 million of the decrease.

Total revenue in the Global Funds Transfer segment consists primarily of fees on money transfers and bill payment transactions. For 2011 and 2010, Global Funds Transfer total revenue increased $99.4 million and $27.8 million, respectively, driven by money transfer volume growth, partially offset by a decline in bill payment revenue.

Bill payment fee and other revenue decreased 11 percent in 2011, with lower volumes contributing an $11.3 million decline and lower average fees from changes in industry mix contributing a $2.5 million decline. In 2010, bill payment fee and other revenue decreased six percent, with lower average fees from changes in industry mix contributing a $5.3 million decline and lower volumes contributing a $2.8 million decline. The impact of changes in industry mix reflect our continued growth in new emerging verticals that generate lower revenue per transaction than our traditional verticals. Due to economic conditions in the United States, volumes in our traditional verticals, such as auto and mortgage, continue to be negatively impacted. Bill payment transaction volume decreased seven percent and one percent in 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Total revenue in the Financial Paper Products segment consists of per-item fees charged to our financial institution customers and retail agents and investment revenue. Financial Paper Products revenue decreased $16.2 million and $13.3 million in 2011 and 2010, respectively.
