Here are five things you should know about this earnings call: 

  1. RYAN reported organic revenue growth rate of 22.3% for the quarter, down from 28.5% for the same quarter last year. 2Q22 organic growth was  driven by new client wins and expanded relationships with existing clients, continued expansion of the E&S (Excess & Surplus) market, and revenue from acquisitions completed in 4Q21.
  1. Adjusted EBITDAC increased 18.2% YoY to $166.1 million*. The adjusted EBITDAC margin of 33.8% decreased compared to 36.0% in the prior-year period. This was affected by an increase of total operating expenses to $385.8 million, a 29.6% increase YoY, largely from an increase in compensation and benefits expense and general and administrative expenses, including continued normalization of business travel and client entertainment.
  2. RYAN is raising its full year 2022 outlook for both organic revenue growth rate and adjusted EBITDAC margin. Organic revenue growth rate guidance range for  2022 is now 16.5% – 18.0%, compared to the prior guidance range of 13.5% – 15.5%. Similarly, adjusted EBITDAC margin guidance range increased for 2022 to 29.0% – 30.0%, compared to the prior guidance range of 28.5% – 30.0%.
  3. CEO, Patrick Ryan relayed an optimistic future noting, “Throughout the second quarter, the E&S marketplace remained robust. In fact, the overall flow of business into our E&S lines is still at historically high levels. As we previously noted, we’ve invested significantly in those lines, or we see clear opportunities to grow in addition to bolstering the lines of business where we have a leadership position.”
  4. Investments in intellectual capital remain important, as RYAN continues to recruit exceptional talent and invest in their teammates.  They added accomplished teammates within the renewable energy line and to the data and analytics and technology teams. Productivity  continues to improve and accelerate, reflected in the strong 2Q22 performance.
