WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value (the "Company"), today released its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.

For the quarter, revenues increased 4.2 percent to $416.0 million compared to $399.3 million in the prior year quarter. Fully diluted loss per share was ($0.18) compared to fully diluted loss per share of ($2.15) in the prior year quarter. Fourth quarter fully diluted loss per share includes a special charge of $27.6 million primarily for severance and acceleration of expense for certain other compensation arrangements related to the transition of former executives. This charge reduced fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") by $0.41. In the prior year quarter, fully diluted loss per share included a goodwill impairment charge of $110.4 million, which reduced fully diluted EPS by $2.77 per share. Fourth quarter 2013 Adjusted EPS were $0.49. Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $53.0 million, or 12.7 percent of revenues. Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter included a remeasurement gain related to the reduction of the liability for estimated future contingent consideration payments related to prior acquisitions, which increased Adjusted EPS by $0.10 and Adjusted EBITDA by $5.3 million.

For the full year, revenues increased 4.8 percent to $1.65 billion compared to $1.58 billion in the prior year period. Fully diluted loss per share was ($0.27) compared to fully diluted loss per share of ($0.92) in the prior year period. Fiscal 2013 fully diluted loss per share includes a goodwill impairment charge and special charges of $83.8 million and $38.4 million, respectively. This compares to a goodwill impairment charge and special charges of $110.4 million and $29.6 million, respectively in the prior year period. Full year Adjusted EPS were $2.39. Full year Adjusted EBITDA was $259.1 million, or 15.7 percent of revenues. Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EBITDA for the year included remeasurement gains related to the reduction of the liability for estimated future contingent consideration payments related to prior acquisitions, which increased Adjusted EPS by $0.30 and Adjusted EBITDA by $13.6 million.

Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA are non-GAAP measures defined elsewhere in this press release and are reconciled to GAAP measures in the financial tables that accompany this press release.

Steve Gunby, recently appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting said, "Travelling the world during the past few weeks has left me increasingly excited about the core capabilities, market positions and people of FTI Consulting. I have been particularly gratified by a number of conversations I have had with clients, who spoke to the powerful ways we have collaborated to make a fundamental difference in their businesses. These conversations have confirmed for me the strength of the Company and the many opportunities ahead to leverage our capabilities and accelerate growth."

Commenting on these results, Roger Carlile, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of FTI Consulting said, "Our fourth quarter results cap off an outstanding year for our Economic Consulting segment and health solutions practice, which grew revenues year-over-year for the quarter by 12.9 percent and 57.1 percent, respectively. Further, our Technology business increased year-over-year revenues for the quarter by 12.6 percent in the face of revenue reductions related to the wind-down of a significant client matter, as we benefitted from rising client demand for providers with global reach and end-to-end capabilities."

Cash and Capital Allocation

Net cash provided by operating activities for fiscal 2013 was $193.3 million compared to $120.2 million in the prior year period. Cash and cash equivalents were $205.8 million at December 31, 2013. During the fourth quarter, the Company committed $22.4 million to repurchase and retire 534,875 shares of the Company's common stock and spent $14.7 million on acquisitions. In fiscal 2013, the Company committed $71.1 million to repurchase and retire 1.957 million shares of the Company's common stock and spent $55.5 million on acquisitions.

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Corporate Finance/Restructuring Revenues in the Corporate Finance/Restructuring segment decreased 14.5 percent to $92.8 million in the quarter compared to $108.5 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower success fees and continued lower bankruptcy and restructuring revenues in the North America region. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $16.2 million or 17.5 percent of segment revenues compared to $27.7 million or 25.5 percent of segment revenues in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA included a $5.3 million remeasurement gain primarily related to the reduction of the liability for estimated future contingent consideration payments related to acquired businesses in Australia. This compares to a remeasurement gain of $1.4 million recorded in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was impacted favorably by the remeasurement gain but was more than offset by underutilization in the segment's North America bankruptcy and restructuring practice, lower success fees and lower realized bill rates due to the mix of services in our telecom, media, and technology practice and costs related to the expansion of our transaction advisory services practice in the Europe, Middle East and Africa ("EMEA") region. The segment also recorded a special charge of $3.9 million in the quarter related to the acceleration of contractual transition service expense for a senior client-service professional.

Economic Consulting Revenues in the Economic Consulting segment increased 12.9 percent to $108.1 million in the quarter compared to $95.7 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was driven by strong performance in the segment's antitrust litigation services in the North America and EMEA regions and its international arbitration, regulatory and valuation practices in the EMEA region. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $22.0 million or 20.3 percent of segment revenues compared to $21.5 million or 22.4 percent of segment revenues in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was impacted by higher performance-based compensation expense.

Forensic and Litigation Consulting Revenues in the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment increased 18.0 percent to $114.7 million in the quarter compared to $97.2 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily due to increased demand and higher success fees for the segment's health solutions practice, as well as increased demand for the segment's global financial and enterprise data analytics practice. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $17.6 million or 15.3 percent of segment revenues compared to $10.1 million or 10.4 percent of segment revenues in the prior year quarter. The increase in Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was due to the growth in the segment's higher margin health solutions practice and improved utilization in the financial and enterprise data analytics practice. This increase was partially offset by an increase in performance-based compensation expense.

Technology Revenues in the Technology segment increased 12.6 percent to $53.6 million in the quarter compared to $47.6 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was due to higher services revenue primarily for investigations involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") and certain financial services matters. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $14.7 million or 27.4 percent of segment revenues compared to $15.5 million or 32.5 percent of segment revenues in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was due to client mix, reduced pricing for certain services and higher performance-based compensation expense.

Strategic Communications Revenues in the Strategic Communications segment decreased 6.8 percent to $46.9 million in the quarter compared to $50.3 million in the prior year quarter. Revenues were lower due to reduced pass-through revenues and project revenues in the EMEA and North America regions. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $5.9 million or 12.6 percent of segment revenues compared to $8.7 million or 17.4 percent of segment revenues in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was impacted by reduced high-margin project fees in the EMEA and North America regions.

First Quarter 2014 Guidance The Company estimates that revenues for the first quarter of 2014 will be between $410.0 million and $425.0 million and Adjusted EPS will be between $0.20 and $0.28. This guidance assumes no acquisitions and no share repurchases.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Conference Call FTI Consulting will host a conference call for analysts and investors to discuss fourth quarter and full year 2013 financial results at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on February 20, 2014. The call can be accessed live and will be available for replay over the Internet for 90 days by logging onto the Company's investor relations website.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures Note: We define Segment Operating Income as a segment's share of consolidated operating income. We define Total Segment Operating Income as the total of Segment Operating Income for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Segment Operating Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and loss on early extinguishment of debt. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment's share of consolidated operating income before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We define Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA as the total of Adjusted Segment EBITDA for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it is a useful supplemental measure which reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment's ability to generate cash. We also believe that these measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of special charges and goodwill impairment charges. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies.

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS") as net income (loss) and earnings per diluted share, respectively, excluding the impact of special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. We use Adjusted Net Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted EPS. Management uses Adjusted EPS to assess total Company operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that this measure, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provides management and investors with a more complete understanding of our business operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are included elsewhere in this press release.

Safe Harbor Statement This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which involve uncertainties and risks. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning our plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, future revenues, future results and performance, expectations, plans or intentions relating to acquisitions and other matters, business trends and other information that is not historical, including statements regarding estimates of our future financial results. When used in this press release, words such as "estimates," "expects," "anticipates," "projects," "plans," "intends," "believes," "forecasts" and variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, estimates of our future financial results, are based upon our expectations at the time we make them and various assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith, and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that management's expectations, beliefs and estimates will be achieved, and the Company's actual results may differ materially from our expectations, beliefs and estimates. Further, preliminary results are subject to normal year-end adjustments. The Company has experienced fluctuating revenues, operating income and cash flow in prior periods and expects that this will occur from time to time in the future. Other factors that could cause such differences include declines in demand for, or changes in, the mix of services and products that we offer, the mix of the geographic locations where our clients are located or where services are performed, adverse financial, real estate or other market and general economic conditions, which could impact each of our segments differently, the pace and timing of the consummation and integration of past and future acquisitions, the Company's ability to realize cost savings and efficiencies, competitive and general economic conditions, retention of staff and clients and other risks described under the heading "Item 1A Risk Factors" in the Company's most recent Form 10-K filed with the SEC and in the Company's other filings with the SEC, including the risks set forth under "Risks Related to Our Reportable Segments" and "Risks Related to Our Operations". We are under no duty to update any of the forward looking statements to conform such statements to actual results or events and do not intend to do so.

(1) We define Adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net loss before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges, loss on early extinguishment of debt and goodwill impairment charges. Amounts presented in the Adjusted EBITDA column for each segment reflect the segments' respective Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment's share of consolidated operating income (loss) before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it is a useful supplemental measure which reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment's ability to generate cash. We also believe that these measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of special charges and goodwill impairment charges. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss.  See also our reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

 

(2) The majority of the Technology and Strategic Communications segments' revenues are not generated based on billable hours.  Accordingly, utilization and average billable rate metrics are not presented as they are not meaningful as a segment-wide metric.   (3) Effective in the first quarter of 2013, we modified our reportable segments to reflect changes in how we operate our business and the related internal management reporting. The Company's healthcare and life sciences practices from both our Corporate Finance/Restructuring segment and our Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment have been combined under a single organizational structure. This single integrated practice, our health solutions practice, is now aggregated in its entirety within the Forensic and Litigation Consulting reportable segment. Prior period Corporate Finance/Restructuring and Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment information has been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

 

(4) 2013 and 2012 utilization and average bill rate calculations for our Corporate Finance/Restructuring, Forensic and Litigation Consulting, and Economic Consulting segments were updated to reflect the realignment of certain practices as well as information related to non-U.S. operations that was not previously available.

(1) The tax effect takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). As a result, the effective tax rates for the adjustments related to special charges for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 were 41.4% and 39.4%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the adjustment for special charges for the year ended December 31, 2012 was 35.3%. The tax expense related to the adjustments for special charges for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 were $11.4 million or $0.29 impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share and $15.1 million or $0.39 impact on diluted earnings per share, respectively. The tax expense related to the adjustment for special charges for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $10.4 million or $0.26 impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share.

 

(2)The goodwill impairment charge is non-deductible for income tax purposes and resulted in no tax benefit for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

 

(3) The tax effect takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). As a result, the effective tax rate for the adjustments related to the loss on early extinguishment of debt for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 were 40.0%. The tax expense related to the adjustments for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 was $1.9 million or $0.05 impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share.  

 

(4) For the three months and years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company reported a net loss.  For such periods, the basic weighted average common shares outstanding equals the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for purposes of calculating U.S. GAAP earnings per share because potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive. For non-GAAP purposes, the per share and share amounts presented herein reflect the impact of the inclusion of share-based awards and convertible notes that are considered dilutive based on the impact of the add backs included in Adjusted Net Income above.

(1) We define Segment Operating Income (Loss) as a segment's share of consolidated operating income (loss). We define Total Segment Operating Income (Loss) as the total of Segment Operating Income (Loss) for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Segment Operating Income (Loss) for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Segment EBITDA.

 

(2) We define Adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net loss before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges, loss on early extinguishment of debt and goodwill impairment charges. Amounts presented in the Adjusted EBITDA row for each segment reflect the segments' respective Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment's share of consolidated operating income (loss) before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it is a useful supplemental measure which reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment's ability to generate cash. We also believe that these measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of special charges and goodwill impairment charges. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss.  See also our reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

 

(3)  Effective in the first quarter of 2013, we modified our reportable segments to reflect changes in how we operate our business and the related internal management reporting. The Company's healthcare and life sciences practices from both our Corporate Finance/Restructuring segment and our Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment have been combined under a single organizational structure. This single integrated practice, our health solutions practice, is now aggregated in its entirety within the Forensic and Litigation Consulting reportable segment. Prior period Corporate Finance/Restructuring and Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment information has been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss.
