Jul 30, 2015, 07:00 ET from Ciber, Inc.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ciber, Inc. (NYSE: CBR), a leading global information technology consulting, services and outsourcing company, today reported results for the second quarter of 2015.

Financial Highlights

For the quarter ended June 30, 2015:

  • Revenue of $197.9 million, a 2% increase in constant currency, down 8% in U.S. dollars versus the prior year
  • Gross margin of 26.1%, up from 25.4% in the prior year and 25.6% in the prior quarter
  • Operating income of $3.7 million, before amortization and restructuring charges of $0.7 million
  • Net income from continuing operations of $1.2 million, or $0.01 per share
  • Operating cash flow used in continuing operations of $3.5 million

Revenue of $197.9 million increased 2% in constant currency, or decreased 8% in U.S. dollars, compared with last year's second quarter.  Net income from continuing operations, before amortization, restructuring charges and management transition costs, for the second quarter of 2015 was $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share compared to $1.3 million, or $0.02 on a per share basis in the second quarter of 2014.  GAAP net income from continuing operations was $1.2 million in the quarter.  GAAP operating margin was 1.5% and non-GAAP operating margin was 1.9% for the second quarter.  Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP operating results and diluted EPS are included at the end of this release.

President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Boustridge said, "Our second-quarter results are solid, and we continue to show improvement.  We are delighted to launch our SaaS line of business for application modernization, Ciber Momentum, which we believe will give us triple digit increases in subscription revenues and services fees over three years, allowing us to grow this into a $200M+ business."

Christian Mezger, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "In constant currency, we have delivered four consecutive quarters of year-over-year profit improvement and three consecutive quarters of year-over-year revenue growth.  North America has shown strong revenue performance, while International was flat year-over-year in constant currency."

Market Highlights

  • Ciber signed an industry-leading Talent Services deal, with a Fortune 30 company, using its Talent Transformation Model.  This represents $90 million in total contract value over the next three years.
  • The University of Strathclyde in Scotland chose Ciber to implement a new Student Administration system based on Oracle.
  • JFK Medical Center signed a contract with Ciber to implement a new Infor ERP system.
  • Aenova selected Ciber for their cloud journey to S/4 HANA.

Other Highlights

Stock Repurchase Program

In the second quarter of 2015 we purchased $0.9 million of treasury stock under our publicly announced buyback plan.

Restructuring Program

On July 25, 2014, we approved a restructuring plan focused on the implementation of a go-to-market model, realigning the organization and improving our near and offshore delivery mix ("the 2014 Plan").  The 2014 Plan commenced in the third quarter of 2014 and is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2015.  It is expected to impact approximately 280 people.  We estimate the total amount of the restructuring charges for the 2014 Plan will be approximately $27 million, substantially all of which will be settled in cash.  The total estimated restructuring expenses include approximately $20 million related to employee severance and related benefits and approximately $7 million related to professional fees, office closures and other expenses.   We expect the 2014 Plan will result in annualized pre-tax net savings from these actions of approximately $18 million that will be fully realized starting in the second half of 2015 and each year thereafter.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 relating to our operations, results of operations and other matters that are based on our current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections. Words, such as "anticipate," "believe," "could," "expect," "estimate," "intend," "may," "opportunity," "plan," "positioned," "potential," "project," "should," and "will" and similar expressions, are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Forward-looking statements are based on assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Risks, uncertainties and

other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, risks that: our results of operations may be adversely affected if we are unable to execute on the key elements of our strategic plan or our strategic plan proves to be less successful than anticipated; if we are not able to anticipate and keep pace with rapid changes in technology, our business may be negatively affected;  a data security or privacy breach could adversely affect our business; we may experience declines in revenue and profitability if we do not accurately estimate the cost of engagements conducted on a fixed-price basis; our business could be adversely affected if our clients are not satisfied with our services, and we could face damage to our professional reputation and/or legal liability; termination of a contract by a significant client and/or cancellation with short notice could adversely affect our results of operations; our results of operations can be adversely affected by economic conditions and the impacts of economic conditions on our clients' operations and technology spending; if we do not continue to improve our operational, financial and other internal controls and systems to manage our growth and size or if we are unable to enter, operate and compete effectively in new geographic markets, our results of operations may suffer and the value of our business may be harmed; our brand and reputation are key assets and competitive advantages of our Company and our business may be affected by how we are perceived in the marketplace; our future success depends on our ability to continue to retain and attract qualified sales, delivery and technical employees; we cannot guarantee that we are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations; if we are unable to protect our intellectual property rights from unauthorized use or infringement by third parties, our business could be adversely affected; our services or solutions could infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others, or we might lose our ability to utilize rights we claim in intellectual property or the intellectual property of others; if we are unable to collect our receivables, our results of operations and cash flows could be adversely affected; our credit agreement, an asset-based loan facility, limits our operational and financial flexibility; our revenues, operating results and profitability may vary from quarter to quarter and may result in increased volatility in the price of our stock; our international operations expose us to additional risks that could have adverse effects on our business and operating results; the IT services industry, in the U.S. and internationally, is highly competitive, with increased focus on offshore capability and we may not be able to compete effectively in this evolving marketplace; our operations are vulnerable to disruptions that may impact our results of operations and from which we may not recover; we might not be successful at identifying, acquiring, or integrating businesses or entering into joint ventures; we could incur additional losses due to further impairment in the carrying value of our goodwill; we depend on contracts with various public sector agencies for a significant portion of our revenue and, if the spending policies or budget priorities of these agencies change, we could lose revenue; unfavorable government audits could require us to adjust previously reported operating results, to forego anticipated revenue and subject us to penalties and sanctions; we have adopted anti-takeover defenses that could make it difficult for another company to acquire control of Ciber or limit the price investors might be willing to pay for our stock, thus affecting the market price of our securities.  For a more detailed discussion of these factors, see the information under the "Risk Factors" heading in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and other documents filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements in light of new information or future events. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
