Convergys Reports Second Quarter Results

Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in customer management, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2013.

The Company also announced that it completed real estate transactions related to corporate simplification actions initiated in prior years.

Second Quarter Summary

  • Revenue of $504 million, up three percent compared with prior year;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $61 million, up six percent compared with $58 million in the prior year;
  • Adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $0.25, compared with $0.19 in the prior year; GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $0.20, including expected pension settlement and real estate sale-related corporate simplification impacts;
  • Repurchased 1.5 million Convergys shares for $25 million, or $16.43 per share;
  • $587 million cash and short term investments on balance sheet at quarter end;
  • Confirmed expectations for revenue growth and profit improvement in 2013.

“We delivered steady improvement in revenue, EBITDA and EPS in the second quarter as we execute our plan for sustained growth and margin expansion,” said Andrea Ayers, president and CEO. “Our winning business model is driving predictable, consistent performance through a unique combination of global quality delivery, comprehensive solutions and close client engagement. We had another quarter of strong new business signings, and are confirming our full-year guidance.”

Ayers added, “As a well-capitalized market leader we are able to both invest in strategic growth and return capital to investors. We acquired Datacom’s Asia contact center operations for approximately $20 million, paid a $6 million dividend and repurchased $25 million of stock in the quarter, and will remain disciplined with our capital deployment strategy.”

Forward-Looking Statements Disclosure and "Safe Harbor" Note

This news release contains statements, estimates, or projections that constitute "forward-looking statements" as defined under U.S. federal securities laws. In some cases, one can identify forward looking statements by terminology such as "will," "expect," "estimate," "think," "forecast," "guidance, "outlook," "plan," "lead," "project" or other comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and our present expectations or projections. These risks include, but are not limited to: (i) the loss of a significant client or significant business from a client; (ii) the future financial performance of major industries that we serve; (iii) our inability to protect personally identifiable data against unauthorized access or unintended release; (iv) our inability to maintain and upgrade our technology and network equipment in a timely manner; (v) international business and political risks, including economic weakness and operational disruption as a result of natural events, political unrest, war, terrorist attacks or other civil disruption; (vi) the failure to meet expectations regarding the tax treatment of the Information Management transaction; (vii) higher than expected costs of providing transition services and other support to the Information Management business and (viii) those factors contained in our periodic reports filed with the SEC, including in the "Risk Factors" section of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The forward-looking information in this document is given as of the date of the particular statement and we assume no duty to update this information. Our filings and other important information are also available on the investor relations page of our web site at www.convergys.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation G; pursuant to the requirements of this regulation, reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures are included in the attached financial tables. To assess the underlying operational performance of the continuing operations of the business for the quarter and to have a basis to compare underlying operating results to prior and future periods, management uses 2013 and 2012 operating income, net income from continuing operations and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations metrics excluding asset impairment charges, corporate restructuring costs, certain Information Management-related costs, interest expense for debt reduction, net non-cash post-employment benefit plan charges, and tax benefits from certain discrete and other adjustments.

These charges are relevant in evaluating the overall performance of the business. Limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP measures include that these measures do not include all of the amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with GAAP. Management compensates for these limitations by using the non-GAAP measures, operating income, income from continuing operations, net of tax and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the items above, and the GAAP measures, operating income, income from continuing operations, net of tax and diluted earnings per share, in its evaluation of performance. There is no material purpose for which we use these non-GAAP measures beyond those described above.

The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because management uses these measures to monitor and evaluate the performance of the business and believes the presentation of these measures will enhance the investors' ability to analyze trends in the business and evaluate the Company's underlying performance relative to other companies in the industry.

Management uses the non-GAAP metric free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the Company. Convergys' management believes that free cash flow is useful to investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the Company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations, such as investment in the Company's existing businesses. Further, free cash flow facilitates management's ability to strengthen the Company's balance sheet, to repurchase the Company's stock, and to repay the Company's debt obligations. Management also believes the presentation of this measure will enhance the investors' ability to analyze trends in the business and evaluate the Company's underlying performance relative to other companies in the industry. Limitations associated with the use of free cash flow include that it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as it does not incorporate certain cash payments including payments made on capital lease obligations or cash payments for business acquisitions. Management compensates for these limitations by using both the non-GAAP measure, free cash flow, and the GAAP measure, cash flow from operating activities, in its evaluation of performance. There is no material purpose for which we use these non-GAAP measures beyond the purposes described above.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or be construed as being more important than comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial information that we provide may be different from that provided by our competitors or other companies.

(a) During the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company recorded net pension and other post employment benefit plan charges (benefits) of $7.5 and ($2.7), respectively. The 2013 charge consists of a pension plan settlement charge while the 2012 net benefit includes $4.1 of curtailment credits from pension and other post employment benefits plans and $1.4 of post-retirement benefits costs related to changes in the executive management team.

(b) During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $46.0 for the goodwill of the Customer Interaction Technology reporting unit. In addition, as the result of a decision to monetize certain real estate assets, these assets were reclassified to Held for Sale and the Company recorded an impairment charge of $1.1 and $42.6 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, to reduce the carrying value to estimated fair value less cost to sell.

(c) The results for the three months ended June 30, 2012 include $6.4 of restructuring charges within Corporate and Other consisting of severance charges related to the change in the Company's executive team and streamlining of operations as a result of the sale of the Information Management business.

(d) In March 2012, the Company signed a definitive agreement to sell the Information Management business and the sale substantially closed in May 2012. The results of operations of this business met the criteria for presentation as discontinued operations and therefore are presented on this basis for all periods presented. Certain costs previously allocated to the Information Management business do not qualify for discontinued operations accounting treatment and are required to be reported as costs within continuing operations. The Company classified $2.8 of these costs, which previously would have been presented within the Information Management segment, within continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

(e) In the second quarter of 2012, the Company exercised its option to purchase its leased office facility in Orlando, Florida by discharging the related lease financing obligation in the aggregate principal amount of $55.0. In connection with the purchase, the Company expensed $1.1 of previously deferred financing fees as interest expense.

Management uses operating income, income from continuing operations, net of tax and earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the above items to assess the underlying operational performance of the continuing operations of the business for the year and to have a basis to compare underlying operating results to prior and future periods. These charges and credits are relevant in evaluating the overall performance of the business.

Limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP measures include that these measures do not include all of the amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with GAAP. Management compensates for these limitations by using the non-GAAP measures, operating income, income from continuing operations, net of tax and diluted earnings per share excluding the charges, and the GAAP measures, operating income, income from continuing operations, net of tax and diluted earnings per share, in its evaluation of performance. There are no material purposes for which we use these non-GAAP measures beyond those described above.

Management uses free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the Company. Convergys' Management believes that free cash flow is useful to investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the Company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations, such as investment in the Company’s existing businesses. Further, free cash flow facilitates Management’s ability to strengthen the Company’s balance sheet, to repay the Company’s debt obligations and to repurchase the Company’s common shares. Management also believes the presentation of this measure will enhance the investors' ability to analyze trends in the business and evaluate the Company's underlying performance relative to other companies in the industry.

Limitations associated with the use of free cash flow include that they do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as they do not incorporate certain cash payments including payments made on capital lease obligations or cash payments for business acquisitions. Management compensates for these limitations by using both the non-GAAP measure, free cash flow, and the GAAP measure, cash from operating activities, in its evaluation of performance. There are no material purposes for which we use this non-GAAP measure beyond the purposes described above. This non-GAAP measure should be considered supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or be construed as being more important than comparable GAAP measures.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets.
