“In the fourth quarter, our colleagues delivered 5% organic revenue growth, to finish a very strong year, contributing to full year organic revenue growth of 6%, margin expansion of 70 basis points to 30.8%, EPS growth of 12% to $13.39, and over $3 billion of free cash flow, an all-time high.” said Greg Case, Chief Executive Officer. “These results continue our long-term progress and demonstrate the success of our Aon United strategy as we enter 2023 in a position of strength to continue delivering results for clients, colleagues, and shareholders.”
FOURTH QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL SUMMARY
Total revenue in the fourth quarter increased 2% to $3.1 billion compared to the prior year period reflecting 5% organic revenue growth and a 1% favorable impact from fiduciary investment income, partially offset by a 4% unfavorable impact from foreign currency translation.
Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter increased 1% to $2.1 billion compared to the prior year period due primarily to an increase in expense associated with 5% organic revenue growth and investments in long-term growth, partially offset by a $102 million favorable impact from foreign currency translation.
Foreign currency translation in the fourth quarter had a $20 million, or $0.10 per share, unfavorable impact on U.S. GAAP net income and a $19 million, or $0.09 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 $0.13 per share, or an approximately $39 million decrease in adjusted operating income, in the first quarter of 2023, and an unfavorable impact of approximately $0.12 per share, or an approximately $36 million decrease in adjusted operating income, for full year 2023.
