Ashok Vemuri, President and Chief Executive Officer, IGATE said, “I am excited with the traction my team is making in the market. We had a strong quarter in revenue growth and we continue to make steady progress on large deal pursuits. The partnership that we entered with a North American insurance major this quarter is testimony to our ability to be a transformational player and validates our continuing investment in building industry-leading solutions.”

“Our new brand identity and redesigned value proposition has resonated well with all our stakeholders. We continue to invest in technology and process capabilities with specific focus on our Digital Practice. The verticalization strategy we implemented at the beginning of the year has started yielding dividends with overall growth across industry segments.” he added.

Sujit Sircar, Chief Financial Officer, IGATE said, “We successfully refinanced the high yield bonds placed in 2011 at a much lower interest cost subsequent to the rating upgrades from S&P and Moody’s. This has enabled us to reduce more than $50 million in interest cost annually on a Q1 run rate basis.”

“We are happy to have maintained our margin levels despite the salary increase this quarter; however we are closely watching the forex headwinds with the appreciation of the Rupee against the U.S. Dollar,” he added.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measures prepared in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures are included in the attached financial tables.

IGATE believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with IGATE's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate IGATE's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. 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.

IGATE believes that providing Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in addition to the related GAAP measures provides investors with greater transparency to the information used by IGATE's management in its financial and operational decision-making. These non-GAAP measures are also used by the Management in connection with IGATE’s performance compensation programs.

More specifically, the non-GAAP financial measures contained herein exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of intangible assets: Intangible assets primarily comprise of customer relationships. We incur charges relating to the amortization of these intangibles. These charges are included in our GAAP presentation of earnings from operations, operating margin, net income and diluted earnings per share. We exclude these charges for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures.
  • Stock-based compensation: Although stock-based compensation is an important component of the compensation of IGATE’s employees and executives, determining the fair value of the stock-based instruments involves a high degree of judgment and estimation and the expense recorded may not reflect the actual value realized upon the future exercise or termination of the related stock-based awards. Furthermore, unlike cash compensation, the value of stock-based compensation is determined using a complex formula that incorporates factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond the Company's control. Management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation in order to better understand the long-term performance of IGATE's core business.
  • Foreign exchange (gain)/loss: From time to time, the Company recognizes foreign currency losses on re-measurement of escrow account balance and foreign exchange gains on re-measurement of redeemable non-controlling interest liability. IGATE believes that eliminating these non-capitalized items for purposes of calculating non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of IGATE’s current performance and comparisons to its past performance.
  • Delisting expenses: We voluntarily delisted the equity shares of our majority owned subsidiary, IGATE Computer Systems Limited from the National Stock Exchange of India Limited and the Bombay Stock Exchange Limited and the American Depository Shares from the New York Stock Exchange. Delisting is an infrequent activity and expenses incurred in connection therein are inconsistent in amount and are significantly impacted by the timing and nature of the delisting. IGATE believes that eliminating these expenses for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of its current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.
  • Merger and reorganization expenses: IGATE is merging and reorganizing its overseas subsidiaries and branches with a view to simplifying the corporate structure and has incurred legal and professional expenses in this connection. Merger and reorganization is an infrequent activity and expenses incurred in connection therein are inconsistent in amount and significantly impacted by the timing and nature of the reorganization. IGATE believes that eliminating these expenses for purposes of calculating non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of IGATE's current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.
  • Preferred dividend and accretion to preferred stock: IGATE has issued 8.00% Series B Preferred Stock. IGATE also incurred issuance costs, which have been netted against the proceeds received from the issuance of Series B Preferred Stock. The Series B Preferred Stock is being accreted over a period of six years. Although, the effect of inclusion of equivalent units of common stock towards convertible participating preferred stock is anti-dilutive for GAAP purposes, the non-GAAP diluted earnings per share has been calculated assuming the conversion of all outstanding shares of preferred stock into equivalent units of common stock. IGATE believes that eliminating these expenses as well as inclusion of equivalent units of common stock towards the preference shares to compute diluted earnings per share for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of IGATE's current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.
  • Loss on extinguishment of Debt: IGATE has extinguished Debt prior to its scheduled maturity which has resulted in non-operating expenses which otherwise would not have been incurred. Debt extinguishment related charges that are excluded from GAAP earnings to determine non-GAAP earnings consist of the extinguishment premium paid as well as the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs. These expenses are inconsistent and of a non-recurring nature and IGATE believes that eliminating them for purposes of calculating non-GAAP measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of IGATE's current operating performance and comparisons to its past operating performance.

From time to time in the future, there may be other items that IGATE may exclude in presenting its financial results.

Non-GAAP Disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA

IGATE presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, (iii) income tax expense, minus (iv) other income, net plus (v) foreign exchange (gain)/loss, (vi) stock-based compensation (vii) delisting expenses, (viii) merger and reorganization expenses and (ix) loss on extinguishment of debt. We eliminated the impact of the above as we do not consider them as indicative of our ongoing operating performance. These adjustments are itemized below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA: (i) as a factor in evaluating management’s performance when determining incentive compensation, (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and (iii) because our credit agreement and our indenture use measures similar to Adjusted EBITDA to measure our compliance with certain covenants.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debts; although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; non-cash compensation is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package, although we exclude it as an expense when evaluating our ongoing operating performance for a particular period; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations; and other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
  • Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
