"Although there continues to be debate regarding potential changes to healthcare policy, several key macro-trends remain very much in our favor and should continue to provide opportunity for growth as well as the need for innovation in workforce solutions. This environment, combined with the positive momentum in our MSP business and robust pipeline, provides us great confidence as we look toward 2018," added Ms. Salka.

Second Quarter 2017 Results

Consolidated revenue for the quarter was $490 million, a 3% increase over prior year and down 1% sequentially. Excluding labor disruption revenue from the prior year quarter, consolidated second quarter revenue was up 7% year over year. There was no labor disruption revenue reported in this quarter, compared to approximately $18 million in the same quarter last year.

Revenue for the Nurse and Allied Solutions segment was $301 million, which is 3% higher year-over-year and 4% lower sequentially. The Travel Nurse division continued its strong performance, with revenue up 9% year-over-year and seasonally down 5% sequentially. The Allied division revenue increased 12% year-over-year and 1% sequentially.

Locum Tenens Solutions segment revenue was $108 million, down 1% year-over-year and up 5% sequentially. The Other Workforce Solutions segment revenue was $81 million, reflecting an increase of 12% year-over-year and 3% sequentially, with the year-over-year growth driven by the Peak Health Solutions acquisition last June and growth in the VMS, interim leadership, and workforce optimization businesses, partially offset by declines in the permanent placement businesses.

Gross margin was 32.9%, which is 20 basis points higher both year-over-year and sequentially.

SG&A expenses were $97 million, or 19.7% of revenue, compared to $100 million, or 21.0% of revenue, in the same quarter last year and $102 million, or 20.6% of revenue, in the previous quarter. SG&A included a favorable professional liability actuarial adjustment of $4 million, compared to a favorable adjustment of $2 million in the same quarter last year. On a sequential basis, the lower SG&A percentage was primarily driven by the favorable professional liability actuarial adjustment in the second quarter.

Net income was $31 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to $26 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year. Excluding amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and integration costs, net of tax, and the excess tax benefits relating to a change in stock compensation accounting, adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.67. Adjusted EBITDA was $67 million, a year-over-year increase of 13%. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.7%, representing a 120 basis point increase year-over-year and 90 basis point increase sequentially.

At June 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents totaled $23 million. For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, cash flow from operations was $18 million and capital expenditures were $6 million. The Company ended the quarter with total debt outstanding of $343 million, with a leverage ratio as calculated in accordance with the Company’s credit agreement of 1.4 to 1.

Third-Quarter 2017 Outlook

Metric                        Guidance*
Consolidated revenue          $490 - $496 M
Gross margin                  32.5%
SG&A as percentage of revenue 20.5%
Adjusted EBITDA margin        12.5%
*Note: Guidance percentage metrics are approximate.  For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA margin, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Guidance Adjusted EBITDA Margin to Guidance Operating Margin" below.

The projected year-over-year revenue increase of 4% to 5% is driven primarily by growth in our Nurse and Allied and Other Workforce Solutions segments. Travel Nurse Staffing, our largest business, is expected to grow approximately 7% year over year. There is no material labor disruption revenue included in the third quarter guidance.

Operating margin                      10.4%
(1)  Operating margin represents income from operations divided by revenue.
(2)  Segment operating income represents net income plus interest expense (net of interest income) and other, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, unallocated corporate overhead, acquisition and integration costs and share-based compensation.
(3)  Adjusted EBITDA represents net income plus interest expense (net of interest income) and other, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, acquisition and integration costs and share-based compensation. Management believes that adjusted EBITDA provides an effective measure of the Company’s results, as it excludes certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company’s operating performance and is a measure used in the Company’s credit agreement and the indenture governing our 5.125% Senior Notes due 2024. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent cash flows for the period, nor has it been presented as an alternative to income from operations or net income as an indicator of operating performance. Although management believes that some of the items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are not indicative of the Company’s operating performance, these items do impact the statement of comprehensive income, and management therefore utilizes adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures such as net income.
(4)  Adjusted EBITDA margin represents adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue.
(5)  The consolidated effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 was favorably affected by the recording of excess tax benefits relating to equity awards vested and exercised during the period. As a result of the adoption of a new accounting pronouncement on January 1, 2017, we no longer record excess tax benefits as an increase to additional paid-in capital, but record such excess tax benefits on a prospective basis as a reduction of income tax expense, which amounted to $1,028,000 and $5,325,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively. Since the majority of our equity awards vest during the first quarter of the year, we do not anticipate the recording of additional excess tax benefits of this magnitude for the reminder of the year. The magnitude of the impact of excess tax benefits generated in the future, which may be favorable or unfavorable, is dependent upon the Company’s future grants of share-based compensation, the Company’s future stock price on the date awards vest or exercise in relation to the fair value of the awards on the grant date or the exercise behavior of the Company’s stock appreciation rights holders. Since these favorable tax benefits are largely unrelated to our current year’s income before taxes and is unrepresentative of our normal effective tax rate, we excluded their impact on adjusted diluted EPS for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017.
(6)  Adjusted diluted EPS represents GAAP diluted EPS excluding the impact of (A) amortization of intangible assets, (B) acquisition and integration costs, (C) tax effect, if any, of the foregoing adjustments, and (D) excess tax benefits relating to equity awards vested and exercised since January 1, 2017. Management included this non-GAAP measure to provide investors and prospective investors with an alternative method for assessing the Company’s operating results in a manner that is focused on its operating performance and to provide a more consistent basis for comparison between periods. However, investors and prospective investors should note that this non-GAAP measure involves judgment by management (in particular, judgment as to what is classified as a special item to be excluded from adjusted diluted EPS). Although management believes the items excluded from adjusted diluted EPS are not indicative of the Company’s operating performance, these items do impact the statement of comprehensive income, and management therefore utilizes adjusted diluted EPS as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures such as GAAP diluted EPS.
(7)  Average healthcare professionals on assignment represents the average number of nurse and allied healthcare professionals on assignment during the period presented.
(8)  Days filled is calculated by dividing the locum tenens hours filled during the period by eight hours.
(9)  Revenue per day filled represents revenue of the Company’s locum tenens solutions segment divided by days filled for the period presented.
(10) Leverage ratio represents the ratio of the consolidated funded indebtedness (as calculated per the Company’s credit agreement) at the end of the subject period to the consolidated adjusted EBITDA (as calculated per the Company’s credit agreement) for the twelve-month period ended at the end of the subject period.
(11) Guidance percentage metrics are approximate. No significant labor disruption revenues are projected for this quarter.
