BOSTON, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Horizons Family Solutions® Inc. (NYSE: BFAM), a leading provider of high-quality child care and early education and other services designed to help employers and families address the challenges of work and life, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100818/NE52441LOGO)

First quarter 2013 highlights (compared to first quarter 2012):

  • Revenue increased 9% to $280 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 17% to $49 million
  • Adjusted income from operations* rose 13% to $29 million
  • Adjusted net income* increased 85% to $16 million
  • Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share* increased 56% to $0.25

"We are pleased with our results this past quarter and with our start to the year," said David Lissy, Chief Executive Officer.  "We delivered strong organic growth, including 11 new center openings, and continued our track record of margin improvement.  Our full suite of solutions, including back-up care and educational advisory services, continues to allow us to expand our relationships with the clients we serve and to help working families better integrate the challenges of work and home across all key life stages.  In April, we were also very pleased to continue our track record of adding value through strategic acquisitions with the addition of Kidsunlimited in the UK.  The acquisition adds 64 new centers to our network and solidifies our leadership position in the UK market.  I am very proud of our talented team of professionals around the world who deliver on our mission every day to make a difference in the lives of the children, families, students, and clients we have the privilege to serve."

First quarter 2013 results
Revenue increased $22.0 million in the first quarter of 2013 on contributions from new and ramping full service child care centers, average price increases of 3-4%, and expanded sales of back-up dependent care and educational advisory services.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $6.9 million and adjusted income from operations increased $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2013 primarily as a result of the $7.8 million increase in gross profit, partially offset by increases in selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), including investments in technology and marketing to support the growth of the business.  Enrollment gains in mature and ramping centers, contributions from new child care centers, as well as back-up dependent care and educational advisory clients that have been added since the first quarter of 2012, and strong cost management have driven gross margin improvement from 22.5% in the first quarter of 2012 to 23.5% in 2013.

In the first quarter of 2013, the Company refinanced its debt and recorded a charge of $63.7 million related to the extinguishment of the previously outstanding debt.  In addition, in connection with the completion of the initial public offering ("IPO"), the Company incurred certain other one-time costs totaling $12.5 million related to the vesting of certain stock options and the termination of the management agreement with our private equity sponsor, Bain Capital Partners LLC (the "Sponsor"). Income from operations was therefore $15.4 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $26.1 million in the same 2012 period, and net loss was $50.8 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $3.6 million of net income in 2012.  Adjusted net income increased by $7.2 million, or 85%, to $15.6 million on expanded adjusted operating income and lower interest expense, offset by an increase in stock compensation expense.  Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share was $0.25, an increase of 56% in the quarter.

As of March 31, 2013, the Company operated 773 early care and education centers with the capacity to serve 88,100 children and families, a 5.2% increase in capacity since March 31, 2012.

*Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from operations and adjusted net income are non-GAAP measures.  Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, straight line rent expense, stock compensation expense, expenses related to the IPO and refinancing that were completed in January 2013 ("IPO and refinancing") and the Sponsor management agreement termination fee. Adjusted income from operations represents income from operations before expenses related to the completion of the IPO and expenses associated with completed acquisitions. Adjusted net income represents net income determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for stock compensation expense, amortization expense, the Sponsor management agreement termination fee, expenses associated with the IPO and refinancing, expenses associated with completed acquisitions and the income tax provision (benefit) thereon. These non-GAAP measures are more fully described and are reconciled from the respective measures determined under GAAP in the table below. Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share is a non-GAAP measure, calculated using adjusted net income, and gives effect to the conversion of Class L common stock as if the conversion were completed at the beginning of the respective fiscal period. Please refer to "Non-GAAP Measures," "Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations," and "Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. Diluted Adjusted Earnings per Pro Forma Common Share" for further detail.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
During the first quarter of 2013, the Company generated approximately $52.3 million of cash flow from operations compared to $38.1 million for the same period in 2012 and invested $22.2 million in fixed assets.  Net cash provided by financing activities totaled $33.3 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  The Company raised $235 million of net proceeds from the IPO completed on January 30, 2013, and repaid all of its outstanding indebtedness under its senior notes, senior subordinated notes, Tranche B term loans, and Series C new term loans with the proceeds from the IPO and proceeds from the issuance of $790.0 million in new secured term loans.  The Company's cash and cash equivalents grew $62.6 million in the quarter to $96.7 million at March 31, 2013.

2013 Outlook
As described below, the Company is updating certain targets regarding its 2013 expectations to include the acquisition of Kidsunlimited from April 10, 2013.

  • Overall revenue growth in 2013 in the range of 10-13%
  • Adjusted EBITDA growth in 2013 in the range of 14-17%
  • Adjusted net income ranging from $76-$79 million in 2013
  • Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share ranging from $1.16 to $1.21

In addition, for the full year in 2013, the Company estimates that pro forma diluted weighted average shares will approximate 66 million shares, comprised of 62.8 million shares for the first quarter of 2013 and approximately 67 million shares for the remainder of 2013.  This includes the 11.6 million common shares issued in connection with the IPO in the first quarter of 2013 and assumes the conversion of the Class L shares into common shares as if that conversion occurred on January 1, 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release includes statements that express the Company's opinions, expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, assumptions or projections regarding future events or future results and therefore are, or may be deemed to be, "forward-looking statements." Bright Horizons Family Solutions' actual results may vary significantly from the results anticipated in these forward-looking statements, which can generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms "believes," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "seeks," "projects," "approximately," "intends," "plans," "estimates" or "anticipates," or, in each case, their negatives or other variations or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They include statements regarding the Company's intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among other things, our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and the industries in which we and our partners operate. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. The Company believes that these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: changes in the demand for child care and other dependent care services, including variation in enrollment trends and lower than expected demand from employer sponsor clients; the possibility that acquisitions may disrupt our operations and expose us to additional risk; our ability to pass on our increased costs; changes in our relationships with employer sponsors; our substantial indebtedness and the terms of such indebtedness; our ability to withstand seasonal fluctuations in the demand for our services; significant competition within our industry; our ability to implement our growth strategies successfully; as well as those risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section of our Annual Report on Form 10K filed March 26, 2013. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the time of this release and we do not undertake to publicly update or revise them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless required by law.

Non-GAAP Measures
In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") throughout this document, the Company has provided non-GAAP measurements - adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share – which present operating results on a basis adjusted for certain items.  The Company uses these non-GAAP measures as key performance measures for the purpose of evaluating performance internally.  We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with useful information with respect to our historical operations. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. The use of the terms adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share may differ from similar measures reported by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from operations, and adjusted net income are reconciled from the respective measures under GAAP in the attached table "Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations".

On January 30, 2013, the Company completed its IPO in which 11,615,000 shares of common stock were sold at a price of $22.00 per share (including the overallotment option which was exercised by the underwriters and completed on February 21, 2013). Prior to the IPO, on January 11, 2013, each share of the Company's Class L common stock converted into 35.1955 shares of common stock. The number of common shares used in the calculations of diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 give effect to the conversion of all outstanding shares of Class L common stock at the conversion factor of 35.1955 common shares for each Class L share, as if the conversion was completed at the beginning of the respective fiscal period. The calculations of diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share also include the dilutive effect of stock options, using the treasury stock method. Shares sold in the IPO are included in the diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share calculations beginning on the date that such shares were actually issued. Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share is calculated using adjusted net income, as defined above. See the attached table "Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. Diluted Adjusted Earnings per Pro Forma Common Share" for further detail.
