NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hudson Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSON), a leading global talent solutions company, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

2013 Third Quarter Summary

  • Revenue of $163.6 million, down 12.9 percent from the third quarter of 2012, or 10.0 percent in constant currency. Sequentially, from the second quarter of 2013 to the third quarter of 2013, revenue was down 4.5 percent or 3.2 percent in constant currency, as compared with a decline of 8.3 percent for the same period in 2012.
  • Gross margin of $55.8 million, a decrease of 17.5 percent from the third quarter of 2012, or 15.4 percent in constant currency. Sequentially, gross margin decreased 7.8 percent or 6.7 percent in constant currency, as compared with a decrease of 12.2 percent for the same period in 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $2.9 million, as compared with positive $1.5 million in the same period last year. Sequentially, adjusted EBITDA decreased 14.7 percent or 25.7 percent in constant currency.
  • Restructuring charges of $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared with $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss of $5.0 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share, as compared with net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share in the same period last year. Sequentially, net loss decreased 13.1 percent.

* Adjusted EBITDA is defined in the segment tables at the end of this release.

"Our third quarter results were consistent with our expectations and reflect the continuing progress we are making to put the business on a path towards sustainable profitability and top-line growth," said Manuel Marquez, chairman and chief executive officer at Hudson. "Our recently reinforced leadership is already getting traction, working with their teams to sharpen execution throughout our organization. Despite the anticipated difficult conditions in several major markets, particularly Australia, we believe the business is trending positively overall, and we are gaining momentum as we continue to reduce our cost base while investing selectively to drive top-line growth."

Stephen Nolan, chief financial officer at Hudson stated, "We are working hard to institutionalize our commitment to improving efficiencies, sustaining operating leverage, and focusing investments in our key markets to support revenue growth. Also, importantly, we generated strong cash flow in the quarter, adding to our solid liquidity position."

Regional Highlights

Americas

Americas' gross margin decreased 5 percent in the third quarter as compared with the same period in 2012. Sequentially, gross margin decreased 2 percent, as compared with a decrease of 22 percent for the same period in 2012. The quarterly decline versus the third quarter of 2012 was driven primarily by an 18 percent reduction in IT gross margin, while Legal eDiscovery declined by 4 percent. RPO gross margin increased 9 percent compared with the third quarter of 2012. Actions to reduce costs delivered SG&A* and headcount reductions of 12 percent and 17 percent, respectively, from the same period a year ago, offsetting all of the gross margin decline from the same quarter a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.3 million for the third quarter, or 3.7 percent of revenue, compared with $0.8 million, or 1.9 percent of revenue for the same quarter a year ago and $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Asia Pacific

Weak economic conditions and reduced hiring in Australia contributed to a gross margin decline of 23 percent in constant currency in Asia Pacific from the prior year period. Sequentially, gross margin decreased 8 percent in constant currency compared with a sequential decline of 9 percent in the same period of 2012. While conditions are difficult for Hudson and competitors alike, Hudson had some areas of growth. For example, recruitment gross margin in Australia/New Zealand in contracting and permanent placement increased 2 percent sequentially, while China gross margin increased 14 percent sequentially. Actions to reduce costs resulted in SG&A* and headcount declines of 6 percent and 13 percent, respectively, as compared with the same period last year, offsetting 23 percent of the constant currency gross margin decline. The region delivered an adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.5 million, or 0.8 percent of revenue, down from positive adjusted EBITDA of $4.7 million, or 6.4 percent of revenue in the third quarter of 2012 and $0.7 million in the second quarter of this year.

Europe

Europe's gross margin declined 12 percent in constant currency compared with the third quarter of 2012. Sequentially, gross margin declined 7 percent in constant currency compared with a 13 percent sequential decline a year ago. Against prior year, gross margin declines were driven primarily by softness in temporary contracting in the U.K. and talent management in continental Europe. Sequentially, gross margin in the U.K. increased slightly, as did temporary contracting in continental Europe, with talent management driving the overall sequential decline. Actions to address costs across Europe resulted in SG&A* and headcount reductions of 11 percent and 12 percent, respectively, from the same period a year ago, offsetting 96 percent of the constant currency gross margin decline. Adjusted EBITDA of $0.4 million, or 0.6 percent of revenue, was down from $0.6 million or 0.9 percent of revenue for the quarter a year ago, and up from $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.

* SG&A does not include non-operating expenses and rent redundancy. Refer to the Segment Analysis later in this document for reconciliation.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The company ended the third quarter of 2013 with $72.1 million in liquidity, composed of $33.2 million in cash and $38.8 million in availability under its credit facilities. This compares with $34.9 million in cash and $49.9 million in availability under its credit facilities at the end of the third quarter of 2012. The company generated $5.6 million in cash flow from operations during the quarter and had no outstanding borrowings at the end of the third quarter.

Business Outlook

Given current economic conditions, the company expects fourth quarter 2013 revenue of between $155 million to $165 million and adjusted EBITDA of between negative $1 million and negative $3 million at prevailing exchange rates. In the fourth quarter of 2012, revenue was $184.3 million and adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million.

HUDSON GLOBAL, INC.
RECONCILIATION FOR CONSTANT CURRENCY
(in thousands) (unaudited)
The company operates on a global basis, with the majority of its gross margin generated outside of the United States. Accordingly, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect its results of operations. Constant currency information compares financial results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. The company currently defines the term "constant currency" to mean that financial data for a previously reported period are translated into U.S. dollars using the same foreign currency exchange rates that were used to translate financial data for the current period. Changes in revenue, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), business reorganization expenses and other non-operating income (expense), operating income (loss) and EBITDA (loss) include the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Variance analysis usually describes period-to-period variances that are calculated using constant currency as a percentage. The company's management reviews and analyzes business results in constant currency and believes these results better represent the company's underlying business trends. The company believes that these calculations are a useful measure, indicating the actual change in operations. There are no significant gains or losses on foreign currency transactions between subsidiaries. Therefore, changes in foreign currency exchange rates generally impact only reported earnings.
