NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dice Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DHX), a leading provider of specialized websites for professional communities, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 totaled $48.0 million, an increase of 3% from $46.8 million in the comparable quarter of 2011.  Excluding the acquisition of Slashdot, SourceForge and Freecode, revenues were $47.3 million in the third quarter. 

The acquisition of Slashdot, SourceForge and Freecode from Geeknet, Inc. was completed on September 17, 2012.  These sites have substantial and highly engaged audiences that fit with the Company's strategy to provide content, community and services that are important in technology professionals' everyday work lives.  Furthermore, Slashdot and SourceForge position the Company to expand its specialized technology recruiting service globally.

In the third quarter of 2012, Dice.com's revenues increased 7% year-over-year driven by increases in both average recruitment package customers and the average monthly revenue generated by those customers.  Rigzone's revenues grew 10% year-over-year, with stronger revenue growth in content supported advertising and career center businesses.  Recruitment activity in financial services generally continued to be lower, resulting in a decrease in revenues of 20% year-over-year at eFinancialCareers. 

Operating expenses increased 5% year-over-year for the third quarter to $33.3 million due to continued investments in product development, marketing and expenses related to the acquisition.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 grew 18% year-over-year to $11.0 million.  Net income was favorably impacted by lower income tax expense due to the expiration of the statute of limitations related to various tax positions.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.17 for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 31% from $0.13 diluted earnings per share in the quarter ended September 30, 2011. 

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $10.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 totaled $19.3 million, as compared with $21.1 million for the third quarter of 2011.  Adjusted EBITDA equaled 40% of revenues in the third quarter of 2012.  See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Operating Segment Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, Tech & Clearance segment revenues increased 10% year-over-year to $33.0 million, or 69% of Dice Holdings' consolidated revenues.  Growth was primarily driven by a 6% increase year-over-year in the average number of recruitment package customers Dice.com served, as well as a 4% increase in the average monthly revenue generated by those customers.  The acquisition of Slashdot, SourceForge and Freecode added $0.8 million to Tech & Clearance revenues.  In addition, ClearanceJobs grew 12% year-over-year as more customers utilized the service.

Finance segment revenues for the third quarter of 2012 decreased 20% year-over-year to $9.4 million.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues in the third quarter of 2012 by $0.2 million, as compared to the third quarter of 2011.  Continental Europe continues to be a challenging market, while demand levels have stayed relatively consistent in North America and Asia Pacific regions.  

The Energy segment grew 10% year-over-year to contribute $4.5 million in revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2012, accounting for 9% of consolidated revenues.  This result was driven by strong year-over-year revenue increases in career center and advertising businesses, partially offset by a decline in our events business due to the timing of a biannual industry event that did not occur in the current period.

Other segment revenues increased 19% year-over-year to $1.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 from the comparable 2011 period, driven by year-over-year increases in revenues of 26% and 12% at AllHealthcareJobs.com and Targeted Job Fairs, respectively.

Nine Month Operating Results

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased 8% to $142.6 million, as compared to $131.8 million in the same period in 2011.  Recruitment activity at Dice.com and Rigzone improved as compared to the same period a year ago.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 by $0.6 million from the comparable 2011 period. 

By segment, Tech & Clearance revenues increased 15% to $96.3 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012.  In the same period, the Finance segment contributed revenues of $29.1 million, a decrease of 14% from the nine month period ended September 30, 2011.  Energy segment revenues increased 21% to $13.8 million.  Other revenues increased 29% to $3.4 million.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased 23% to $29.1 million, as compared to $23.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.  

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, net cash provided by operating activities totaled $44.5 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased 4% to $57.9 million, as compared with $55.6 million for the same period in 2011. See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Balance Sheet

Deferred revenue at September 30, 2012 was $66.1 million compared to $59.4 million at September 30, 2011 and $66.8 million at June 30, 2012.  The 11% year-over-year increase was primarily driven by increases in our Dice and Rigzone services, as well as the addition of $2.4 million due to the acquisition.

Net Cash, defined as cash and cash equivalents and investments less total debt, was $8.0 million at September 30, 2012, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $50.0 million minus total debt of $42.0 million.  This compares to a Net Cash balance of $41.5 million at June 30, 2012, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $56.5 million minus total debt of $15.0 million

During the third quarter of 2012, the Company purchased 2,745,001 shares of its common stock on the open market pursuant to its stock repurchase plan at an average cost of $8.15 per share, for a total of approximately $22.4 million.  In addition, the company paid $20 million in cash for the aforementioned acquisition.

Management Comments

Scot Melland, Chairman, President and CEO, said, "Since our last quarterly report, recruitment activity has been generally stable with the exception of Europe which has continued to soften.  During the quarter, we added customers and our renewal rates improved a bit at our Dice service.  Strategically, our acquisition of Slashdot and SourceForge will enable our customers to reach millions of engaged technology professionals worldwide."  Mr. Melland added, "We believe this global distribution and our specialized approach positions us to capitalize on what we anticipate to be a continued, gradual employment recovery."

Mike Durney, Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, said,  "Our operating strategy and performance allows us to consistently reinvest in our businesses, make strategic acquisitions and return cash to our shareholders.  This quarter, we clearly demonstrated all three.  Since the inception of our share repurchases in the third quarter of 2011, we've purchased 8.7 million shares and our diluted share count has been reduced by 10 percent, while at the same time making strategically important acquisitions."   Mr. Durney added, "We continue to be in a great position to invest for long-term growth, including ongoing investments in product development, marketing and our vertical markets."

Business Outlook

The Company is providing a current, point-in-time view of estimated financial performance based on what it sees as of October 24, 2012 for the quarter and year ending December 31, 2012.  The Company's actual performance will vary based on a number of factors including those that are outlined in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 in the sections entitled "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

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, 2011, 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.
