May 08, 2014, 08:01 ET from Lionbridge Technologies, Inc.

WALTHAM, Mass., May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.  Financial and business highlights for the quarter include:

  • Revenue of $120.2 million, a year-on-year increase of $6.5 million or 6% compared to the first quarter of 2013. The Company's Global Language and Content (GLC) segment grew 12% year-on-year, led by ongoing marketing services growth within large existing clients as well as new engagements during the quarter with clients in the eCommerce and manufacturing sectors. 
  • GAAP net income of $1.9 million, or $0.03 per share based on 63.5 million fully diluted shares outstanding.  This marks a year-on-year increase of $4.9 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to strong year-on-year margin expansion in the Company's GLC segment.  
  • Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $4.8 million, or $0.08 per share.  The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted earnings as net income excluding restructuring and acquisition-related charges, asset impairment costs, stock-based compensation, and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.  Please see the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the attached table for details and reconciliations of this measure to the comparable GAAP measure. 
  • An ending cash balance of $31.9 million

"As we begin the second quarter we are seeing strong revenue and earnings momentum.  Our marketing offerings continue to scale, our new onDemand platform is ramping ahead of plan and we are growing our recurring revenue relationships with clients across diverse end markets," said Rory Cowan, CEO, Lionbridge.  "Most importantly, we continue to deliver strong conversion of incremental revenue to profit year-on-year.  With a positive demand environment and our highly-efficient online delivery models, we expect a positive second quarter and ongoing strength for the remainder of FY 2014."

Lionbridge provided an outlook for the second quarter of 2014 with revenue of $129-133 million.  The Company also reiterated expectations for FY 2014 revenue growth of 5-10% year-on-year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures In this release, the Company's adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations. These measures are presented because management believes they provide additional information to investors with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities. "Adjusted earnings" and "adjusted EPS" are Non-GAAP financial measures and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. Management believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS are net income and diluted net income per share, respectively, and has provided a reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS at the end of this release.
