Bright Horizons Family Solutions® Reports Second Quarter of 2014 Financial Results

07 Aug, 2014, 16:01 ET from Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc.

BOSTON, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Horizons Family Solutions® Inc. (NYSE: BFAM), a leading provider of high-quality child care, early education and other services designed to help employers and families better address the challenges of work and life, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights (compared to second quarter 2013):

  • Revenue increased 12% to $348 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 14% to $64 million
  • Adjusted income from operations* increased 17% to $43 million
  • Adjusted net income* increased 19% to $28 million
  • Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share* increased 17% to $0.41

"We are pleased with our results this past quarter and through the first half of the year," said David Lissy, Chief Executive Officer.  "Growth was strong across our full suite of solutions, including full service centers, back-up care and educational advisory services.  We also continued to invest in people and technologies to support this growth and our high quality of service while at the same time monitoring overhead spending in order to leverage our infrastructure across the Company."

"This past June we released the Bright Horizons Modern Family Index," continued Mr. Lissy, "and the findings showed that working mothers and fathers alike continue to struggle to balance work and family responsibilities and confirmed that employers that offer them supports, such as child care and elder care, are more likely to engender loyalty, integrity and commitment from their workforce.  These findings were an important reminder that while employers who invest in services like ours are ahead of the game, there is still much work to be done to help support working families, and we are proud to be a leader and advocate in providing this critical support."

Second Quarter 2014 Results

Revenue increased $37.3 million in the second quarter of 2014 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 $7.8 million and adjusted income from operations increased $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of the $7.7 million increase in gross profit, partially offset by increases in selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A").  The adjusted EBITDA increase reflects enrollment gains in mature and ramping centers, contributions from new child care centers, back-up dependent care and educational advisory clients that have been added since the second quarter of 2013, and strong cost management.  These gains are tempered by the integration of the Company's acquisitions of Kidsunlimited in the UK in April 2013 and Children's Choice in the US in July 2013, and the costs incurred during the initial ramp up phase for certain new lease/consortium centers opened over the past 12 to 18 months.

Income from operations was $42.5 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $35.4 million in the same 2013 period, and net income was $21.7 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to net income of $24.5 million in the same 2013 period.  In the second quarter of 2013, the provision for income taxes of $2.0 million represented an effective tax rate of 7.4% due to the realization of a previously unrecognized tax benefit of approximately $4.1 million upon completion of a UK tax enquiry and the projection of the expected applicable tax rate for the full year 2013, including the impact on income before income taxes of the expenses related to the initial public offering (the "IPO") and debt refinancing that were completed in the first quarter of 2013.  Adjusted net income increased by $4.4 million, or 19%, to $27.5 million on the expanded adjusted income from operations.  Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share was $0.41, an increase of 17% compared to the second quarter in 2013.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company operated 882 early care and education centers with the capacity to serve 99,600 children and families, a 7% increase in capacity since June 30, 2013.

*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, expenses related to secondary offerings, expenses associated with completed acquisitions, and the management agreement fee paid to Bain Capital Partners LLC (the "Sponsor").  Adjusted income from operations represents income from operations before expenses related to the completion of the IPO and secondary offerings, 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 fee, IPO and refinancing expenses, secondary offering expenses, 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 referred to 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 six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company generated approximately $104.4 million of cash flow from operations compared to $98.4 million for the same period in 2013 and invested $36.2 million in fixed assets and acquisitions compared to $103.9 million in the same 2013 period.  Net cash provided by financing activities totaled $14.2 million in the six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $35.3 million for the same 2013 period.  The Company raised $234.9 million of net proceeds from the IPO completed on January 30, 2013, and repaid all of its outstanding indebtedness with the proceeds from the IPO and proceeds from the issuance of $790.0 million in new secured term loans.  During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company's cash and cash equivalents grew $82.7 million to $112.3 million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA growth in 2014 in the range of 15-17%
  • Adjusted net income ranging from $97 million to $99 million in 2014
  • Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share ranging from $1.43 to $1.46

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 10-K filed March 25, 2014. 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."

The number of common shares used in the calculations of diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share for the 2013 reported periods 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 January 1, 2013. Diluted adjusted earnings per pro forma common share is calculated using the two-class method and includes the dilutive effect of stock options.  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.

(1)     The weighted average number of Class L shares in the actual Class L earnings per share calculation for the six months ended June 30, 2013 represents the weighted average from the beginning of the period up through the date of conversion of the Class L shares into common shares. As such, the pro forma weighted average number of common shares includes an adjustment to the weighted average number of Class L shares outstanding to reflect the length of time the Class L shares were outstanding prior to conversion relative to the six month period. The converted Class L shares are already included in the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period after their conversion.

(2)     Represents the dilutive effect of stock options using the treasury stock method. For purposes of the diluted loss per pro forma common share for the six months ended June 30, 2013, there is no dilutive effect since there was a loss recorded during the period.
