Ciber Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2015 Results

Feb 18, 2016, 07:00 ET from Ciber, Inc.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ciber, Inc. (NYSE: CBR), a leading global information technology consulting, services and outsourcing company, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2015.

"In 2015, during my first full year as CEO, we completed the hard work necessary to focus our core offerings into five, tightly defined pillars with premium, scalable and well-defined products.  We proactively exited business not providing good growth prospects and returns for Ciber.  The Company also invested for the future, launching Ciber Momentum™, our first entry into Software-as-a-Service delivery, and Ciber Transformation Services™, building on our IT staffing expertise to penetrate the large-scale labor talent re-engineering market.  We believe these changes and investments position Ciber to grow its revenues, margins and cash generating capabilities," said President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Boustridge.  "While our recent financial results do not yet reflect the company's potential, our entire organization is energized about executing on a growth strategy that enables our clients to modernize both their operating and labor models."

  • Revenue of $194.4 million, down 6% in constant currency and down 11% in U.S. dollars versus the prior year
  • Gross margin of 25.3%, versus 25.8% in the prior year and 26.8% in the third quarter of 2015

(1)The Company calculates non-GAAP constant currency, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income/loss from continuing operations, adjusted net income/loss per share from continuing operations and adjusted SG&A expenses by excluding special items of amortization, restructuring charges and management transition costs from the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure. In addition, constant currency results exclude the impact of foreign currency movements. See the end of this release for reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP measures.

Christian Mezger, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "As we look into the new year, the company is focused on operational execution, lowering G&A expenses, and improving cash from operations.  We have made and will continue to make investments to accelerate the company's revenue growth and drive its margin expansion."

    • Ciber announced a go-to-market partnership combining CA Technologies solutions for application development and monitoring with the Ciber Momentum platform for automating and accelerating application modernization.
    • To help enterprise customers quickly modernize and secure their mission critical applications, Ciber initiated a partnership with WhiteHat Security.  The partnership will use Ciber Momentum to transform legacy custom systems into modern architectures and WhiteHat Application Security Testing to deliver security through the entire software development cycle.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), we also present certain non-GAAP measurements because management believes that these metrics provide meaningful supplemental information useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because they provide an additional measure to evaluate our performance without regard to special and non-core items, which can vary substantially from company to company and from period to period.  These non-GAAP measurements should be viewed as supplements to (not substitutes for) our results of operations presented under U.S. GAAP, and include: "constant currency;" "adjusted operating income," "adjusted operating margin," "adjusted net income/loss from continuing operations," "adjusted net income/loss per share," and "adjusted SG&A expenses." Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable U.S. GAAP measures are available in the schedules accompanying this release.  These reconciliations may also be found in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at http://www.ciber.com/.

Ciber, Inc.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)
(Unaudited)

Ciber reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Our management uses "revenue change adjusted for currency;" "operating income and operating margin adjusted for amortization, restructuring charges and management transition costs;" "net income/loss from continuing operations and net income/loss per dilutive share from continuing operations adjusted for amortization, restructuring charges, and management transition costs;" "SG&A expenses before management transition costs" as measures of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis; as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance; as useful comparisons to the performance of our competitors; and as metrics of certain management incentive compensation calculations. We believe that the non-GAAP measures are used by and are useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because they provide an additional tool to evaluate our performance without regard to special and non-core items, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets and capital structure. We have provided reconciliations of all non-GAAP measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measures and have consistently applied the adjustments within our reconciliations in arriving at each non-GAAP measure. These adjustments consist of special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements as well as other non-core items, such as restructuring costs, management transition costs included in our U.S. GAAP results that warrant adjustment to arrive at non-GAAP results. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective and involve significant management judgment. Certain of the information set forth in this press release constitutes non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable amounts determined in accordance with GAAP in the United States.
