 FTI Consulting Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results
   Thursday, July 27, 2017 7:30:15 AM ET

? Second Quarter Revenues of $444.7 Million

? Second Quarter Fully Diluted Loss Per Share of ($0.13); Adjusted EPS of $0.40

FTI Consulting, Inc. (FCN ) today released its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

For the quarter, revenues of $444.7 million declined $15.4 million, or 3.4%, compared to revenues of $460.1 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact of foreign currency translation ("FX"), revenues decreased $7.4 million, or 1.6%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily driven by lower demand for services within the Corporate Finance & Restructuring segment.

Second quarter 2017 net loss of $5.2 million compared to net income of $26.5 million in the prior year quarter. Net loss included a special charge of $30.1 million, which included $16.1 million of severance costs related to the termination of approximately 4% of the Company’s more than 4,700 employees, $12.4 million of lease curtailment charges related to the Company’s Washington, D.C., office relocation and $1.6 million of costs related to the disposal or closing of several small international offices. The Company expects that these actions will result in cost savings of approximately $23.0 million over the remainder of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the special charge, was $40.8 million, or 9.2% of revenues, compared to $56.6 million, or 12.3% of revenues in the prior year quarter. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA was due to lower revenues.

On a GAAP basis, second quarter 2017 fully diluted loss per share was ($0.13) compared to fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.64 in the prior year quarter. In total, the second quarter 2017 special charge reduced EPS by $0.52. EPS in the prior year quarter included a $1.7 million special charge, which reduced EPS by $0.02. Adjusted EPS, which excludes special charges, was $0.40 compared to $0.66 in the prior year quarter.

Commenting on these results, Steven H. Gunby, President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting, said, "We had a slow start to 2017. Despite this, we continue to expect a stronger second half of the year. This expectation is supported by the strong sequential improvement compared to the first quarter and significant new wins in our Corporate Finance & Restructuring segment; continued investment where we have confidence we can grow; and the disciplined actions we have taken to align costs with demand and reduce overhead. We believe this combination of sustained investment, disciplined cost control and the strength of our franchise will translate into second half financials that more closely reflect the underlying strength of our businesses."

Cash Position and Capital Allocation

Net cash provided by operating activities of $10.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $73.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The year-over-year difference in operating cash flows is due to lower cash receipts resulting from lower revenues and slower collections and increased compensation payments due to annual increases in salaries, increased headcount and an additional US payroll.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1,887,033 shares of its common stock at an average price of $34.74 for a total of $65.6 million. As of June 30, 2017, $78.9 million remained available under the Company’s $200.0 million share repurchase authorization.

Total debt of $485.0 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $500.0 million at June 30, 2016. Cash and cash equivalents were $138.5 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $182.7 million at June 30, 2016. Total debt, net of cash, of $346.5 million at June 30, 2017, compared to $317.3 million at June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter 2017 Segment Results

Corporate Finance & Restructuring

Revenues in the Corporate Finance & Restructuring segment decreased $14.7 million, or 11.1%, to $117.5 million in the quarter compared to $132.1 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact of FX, revenues decreased $12.5 million, or 9.4%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower demand for restructuring services globally, which was partially offset by higher success fees. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $20.0 million, or 17.1% of segment revenues, compared to $32.0 million, or 24.2% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decline in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was primarily due to lower revenues.

Forensic and Litigation Consulting

Revenues in the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment decreased $6.8 million, or 5.7%, to $111.4 million in the quarter compared to $118.2 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower demand for global investigations and health solutions services, which was partially offset by higher demand for construction solutions services. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $13.0 million, or 11.7% of segment revenues, compared to $15.2 million, or 12.9% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decline in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was primarily due to lower revenues, which was partially offset by lower compensation resulting from headcount reductions taken in the health solutions practice in 2016.

Economic Consulting

Revenues in the Economic Consulting segment increased $6.0 million, or 5.1%, to $124.0 million in the quarter compared to $118.0 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact of FX, revenues increased $8.6 million, or 7.2%, compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher demand for antitrust services in North America. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $15.5 million, or 12.5% of segment revenues, compared to $15.4 million, or 13.0% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was consistent with the prior year quarter, as the increase in revenues was offset by increased compensation costs related to an increase in billable headcount.

Technology

Revenues in the Technology segment increased $3.7 million, or 8.8%, to $45.6 million in the quarter compared to $41.9 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact of FX, revenues increased $4.2 million, or 10.1%, compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily driven by higher consulting demand related to merger and acquisition related "second request" services, which was partially offset by reduced hosting revenue. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $5.4 million, or 11.9% of segment revenues, compared to $5.0 million, or 12.0% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The increase in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was a result of higher revenues, which was largely offset by higher cost of service and investment in future revenue generating initiatives.

Strategic Communications

Revenues in the Strategic Communications segment decreased $3.7 million, or 7.4%, to $46.2 million in the quarter compared to $49.9 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact of FX, revenues decreased $2.0 million, or 4.0%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to a decline in project-based revenues in North America, particularly for financial communications and corporate reputation services. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $4.9 million, or 10.5% of segment revenues, compared to $8.4 million, or 16.9% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was due to lower revenues.

2017 Guidance

The Company reaffirms its full year 2017 revenue guidance of between $1.775 billion and $1.875 billion. Given the special charge in the second quarter of 2017, the Company is revising its full year 2017 GAAP EPS guidance. The Company now estimates that full year 2017 GAAP EPS will range between $1.37 and $1.67. This compares to the previous GAAP EPS guidance range of between $1.75 and $2.10. The Company is maintaining its full year 2017 Adjusted EPS guidance of between $1.90 and $2.20. The variance between GAAP EPS and Adjusted EPS guidance for full year 2017 is related to the second quarter 2017 special charge of $30.1 million, or $0.52 per share, resulting from headcount reductions, the Company’s Washington, D.C., office relocation and other costs related to the disposal or closure of several small international offices.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In the accompanying analysis of financial information, we sometimes use information derived from consolidated and segment financial information that may not be presented in our financial statements or prepared in accordance with GAAP. Certain of these measures are considered "non-GAAP financial measures" under the SEC rules. Specifically, we have referred to the following non-GAAP measures:

-- Total Segment Operating Income

-- Adjusted EBITDA

-- Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA

-- Adjusted EBITDA Margin

-- Adjusted Net Income (Loss)

-- Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share

We have included the definitions of Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Adjusted Segment EBITDA below in order to more fully define the components of certain non-GAAP financial measures presented in this earnings release. We define Segment Operating Income (Loss) as a segment’s share of Consolidated Operating Income (Loss). We define Total Segment Operating Income (Loss), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as the total of Segment Operating Income (Loss) for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Segment Operating Income (Loss) for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment’s share of Consolidated Operating Income (Loss) before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a basis to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment’s ability to generate cash. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA Margin as Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a percentage of a segment’s revenues.

We define Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as the total of Adjusted Segment EBITDA for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We define Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as consolidated net income before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. We believe that the non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude the effects of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges and goodwill impairment charges, when considered together with our GAAP financial results and GAAP measures, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results with the operating results of other companies.

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS"), which are non-GAAP financial measures, as net income (loss) and earnings per diluted share, respectively, excluding the impact of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. We use Adjusted Net Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted EPS. Management uses Adjusted EPS to assess total Company operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that this non-GAAP financial measure, which excludes the effects of the remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provides management and investors with an additional understanding of our business operating results, including underlying trends.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable with other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the financial tables accompanying this press release.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net loss. For the period, the basic weighted average common shares outstanding equals the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for purposes of calculating U.S. GAAP earnings per share because potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive. For non-GAAP purposes, the Adjusted EPS and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding presented herein reflect the impact of the inclusion of share-based awards that are considered dilutive based on the impact of the add-backs included in Adjusted Net Income above.

The forward-looking guidance on estimated 2017 earnings per diluted share ("EPS") and adjusted earnings per common share - diluted ("Adjusted EPS") do not reflect other gains and losses (all of which would be excluded from Adjusted EPS) related to future impact of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and/or losses on early extinguishment of debt except for the actual charges taken during the six months ended June 30, 2017, as these items are dependent on future events that are uncertain and difficult to predict.
