24 Jul, 2013, 07:00 ET from Dice Holdings, Inc.

NEW YORK, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dice Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DHX), a leading provider of specialized websites for professional communities, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $52.0 million, an increase of 7% from $48.5 million in the comparable quarter of 2012.  Excluding the acquisition of Slashdot Media, revenues were $47.9 million in the second quarter.  Similar to the prior quarter, recruiting activity remained inconsistent by region and by industry.

During the second quarter, the number of hiring managers and recruiters utilizing Open Web increased, as well as the number of searches and profile views by those customers.  Currently in beta on the Dice service, Open Web combines publicly available information on approximately 50 social and professional networks to create an aggregated or "super" profile of a candidate's professional experience, contributions, history and capabilities, as well as their passions and interests.  Hiring managers continue to report finding unique candidates, as well as praising the direct contact information provided and the efficiency of the service.

Operating expenses increased 20% year-over-year for the second quarter to $39.3 million due to the prior year's acquisitions, continued investments in product development, and higher general and administration expenses.

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $8.0 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.13 for the second quarter of 2013.

Net cash provided by operating activities increased 18% year-over year to $12.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 totaled $18.3 million which equaled 35% of revenues in the second quarter of 2013.  See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Operating Segment Results

For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, Tech & Clearance segment revenues increased 13% year-over-year to $36.3 million, or 70% of Dice Holdings' consolidated revenues.  The acquisition of Slashdot Media added $4.1 million to Tech & Clearance revenues.  Second quarter revenues in our Dice.com service essentially matched the prior year's second quarter, while ClearanceJobs.com posted a 3% year-over-year decline in revenues.  The Company continues to see stronger performance in recruitment packages offset by lower transactional job advertising.

Finance segment revenues for the second quarter of 2013 decreased 11% year-over-year to $8.7 million.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues in the second quarter of 2013 by $0.2 million, as compared to the second quarter of 2012.  Recruitment activity remains weak in Continental Europe, with markets in the UK, North America, and Asia Pacific relatively stable with the previous quarter. 

The Energy segment grew 13% year-over-year to $6.0 million in revenues in the quarter ended June 30, 2013, accounting for 11% of consolidated revenues.  This result was driven by similar growth rates year-over-year in advertising, career center, data services and events.

Other segment revenues totaled $1.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Six Month Operating Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $102.4 million, an increase of 8% from $94.6 million in the comparable period of 2012.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 by $0.3 million from the comparable 2012 period.

By segment, Tech and Clearance revenues increased 14% to $72.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  The acquisition of Slashdot Media contributed revenues of $8.2 million to the Tech and Clearance segment in the six months ended June 30, 2013.   In the same period, the Finance segment contributed revenues of $17.3 million, a decrease of 12% from the six months ended June 30, 2012.  Energy segment revenues increased 18% to $11.0 million. Other revenues decreased 7% to $2.0 million

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $15.0 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.25 for six months ended June 30, 2013.

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $34.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013.  Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2013 decreased 9% to $35.2 million from $38.7 million for the same period in 2012.  See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Balance Sheet

Deferred revenue at June 30, 2013 was $73.2 million compared to $66.8 million at June 30, 2012 and $77.2 million at March 31, 2013.  The 9% year-over-year increase was primarily driven by increases in our Dice and Rigzone services.  Slashdot Media represented $2.2 million of Deferred revenue at June 30, 2013.

Net Cash, defined as cash and cash equivalents and investments less total debt, was $14.6 million at June 30, 2013, consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $40.6 million minus total debt of $26.0 million.  This compares to a Net Cash balance of $11.6 million at March 31, 2013, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $45.6 million minus total debt of $34.0 million.

During the second quarter of 2013, the Company repaid $8 million of outstanding debt under the revolving credit facility and purchased 920,700 shares of its common stock on the open market pursuant to its stock repurchase plan at an average cost of $8.85 per share, for a total of approximately $8.1 million.

Recent Developments

Dice Holdings, Inc. Acquires UK-based The IT Job Board®

On July 20, 2013, the Company expanded its online tech recruiting business to Europe by purchasing The IT Job Board® from SThree plc (LSE: STHR), an international specialist staffing company.

Known for making the search for IT jobs simple, The IT Job Board operates a network of tech career sites including local versions for the UK, Germany, Belgium and Holland, as well as a media service that targets IT decision makers and professionals globally.  With a quarter of a million monthly unique visitors and nearly one million technology professionals to match against hiring managers' job opportunities, The IT Job Board gives its customers quick and easy access to targeted, high-quality technical talent.

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as additional information for its operating results.  These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures reported by other companies.  The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock based compensation expense, and other non-recurring income or expense ("Adjusted EBITDA"), free cash flow, net cash and net debt, provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations.  In addition, the Company's management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company and for budgeting and planning purposes.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by management to measure operating performance.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure for internal monitoring and planning, including preparation of annual budgets, analyzing investment decisions and evaluating profitability and performance comparisons between us and our competitors.  The Company also uses this measure to calculate amounts of performance based compensation under the senior management incentive bonus program.  Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in our Credit Agreement, represents net income (loss) plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income (loss)) interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, losses resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business, certain writeoffs in connection with indebtedness, impairment charges with respect to long-lived assets, expenses incurred in connection with an equity offering, extraordinary or non-recurring non-cash expenses or losses, transaction costs in connection with the Credit Agreement up to $250,000, deferred revenues written off in connection with acquisition purchase accounting adjustments, writeoff of non-cash stock compensation expense, and business interruption insurance proceeds, minus (to the extent included in calculating such net income (loss)) non-cash income or gains, interest income, and any income or gain resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business. 

We consider Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, to be an important indicator to investors because it provides information related to our ability to provide cash flows to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and to fund future growth as well as to monitor compliance with financial covenants.  We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides our board of directors, management and investors with additional information to measure our performance, provide comparisons from period to period and company to company by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense) and tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses), and to estimate our value. 

We present Adjusted EBITDA because covenants in our Credit Agreement contain ratios based on this measure.  Our Credit Agreement is material to us because it is one of our primary sources of liquidity.  If our Adjusted EBITDA were to decline below certain levels, covenants in our Credit Agreement that are based on Adjusted EBITDA may be violated and could cause a default and acceleration of payment obligations under our Credit Agreement.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our profitability or liquidity.

Free Cash Flow

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. We believe free cash flow is an important non-GAAP measure as it provides useful cash flow information regarding our ability to service, incur or pay down indebtedness or repurchase our common stock.  We use free cash flow as a measure to reflect cash available to service our debt as well as to fund our expenditures.  A limitation of using free cash flow versus the GAAP measure of net cash provided by operating activities is that free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance from operations for the period since it includes cash used for capital expenditures during the period.

Net Cash/Net Debt

Net Cash is defined as cash and cash equivalents and investments less total debt. Net Debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents and investments. We consider Net Cash and Net Debt to be important measures of liquidity and indicators of our ability to meet ongoing obligations.  We also use Net Cash and Net Debt, among other measures, in evaluating our choices for capital deployment.  Net Cash and Net Debt presented herein are non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and oral statements made from time to time by our representatives contains forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on those statements because they are subject to numerous uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Forward-looking statements include information without limitation concerning our possible or assumed future results of operations, including descriptions of our business strategy. These statements often include words such as "may," "will," "should," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate" or similar expressions.  These statements are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our experience in the industry as well as our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results or results of operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  These factors include, but are not limited to, competition from existing and future competitors in the highly competitive market in which we operate, failure to adapt our business model to keep pace with rapid changes in the recruiting and career services business, failure to maintain and develop our reputation and brand recognition, failure to increase or maintain the number of customers who purchase recruitment packages, cyclicality or downturns in the economy or industries we serve, failure to attract qualified professionals to our websites or grow the number of qualified professionals who use our websites, failure to successfully identify or integrate acquisitions, U.S. and foreign government regulation of the Internet and taxation, our ability to borrow funds under our revolving credit facility or refinance our indebtedness and restrictions on our current and future operations under such indebtedness.  These factors and others are discussed in more detail in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which are available on the Investor Relations page of our website at www.diceholdingsinc.com, including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, under the headings "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by the Company or its representatives herein, or elsewhere, speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and it is impossible to predict these events or how they may affect us. We have no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof, except as required by federal securities laws.
