UTi Worldwide Reports Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter Results

LONG BEACH, Calif., Dec. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UTi Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:UTIW) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2014 third quarter ended October 31, 2013.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2014 vs. 2013 Results:

  • Revenues were $1,154.4 million, a decrease of 0.2 percent from $1,156.7 million.
  • Net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) were $393.5 million, a decrease of 2.5 percent from $403.6 million.
  • On an organic basis, revenues increased 3.1 percent and net revenues increased 1.6 percent versus the comparable prior year period.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $9.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $10.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share.
  • The GAAP net loss in the fiscal 2014 third quarter includes after-tax severance costs of $12.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. In addition, the company recorded additional tax expense exceeding its normalized tax rate by $5.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.
  • Excluding the after-tax severance costs and the additional tax expense described above, non-GAAP net income attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $8.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.
  • All references to adjusted items and organic items in this release refer to non-GAAP results. A reconciliation of GAAP to these non-GAAP results is provided in the supplemental financial information attached to this release.

Eric W. Kirchner, chief executive officer, said, "Our fiscal 2014 third quarter results reflect increased activity in both our freight forwarding and contract logistics and distribution segments, offset by transformation-related costs. Our sales efforts drove freight forwarding volume growth that was ahead of the market, particularly in airfreight. Rates were under pressure in the third quarter and this led to a decline in net revenue per unit of cargo that partially offset the higher volumes. We anticipate this rate pressure to continue for the foreseeable future. Improved trading conditions and our ongoing sales activities in contract logistics and distribution led to new business and increases in existing accounts. Year over year comparisons in contract logistics and distribution were negatively impacted by the conclusion in October 2012 of a high-margin account in the Americas and the impact of currency exchange rates on our global results."

Kirchner continued, "Since October 1, we have launched our 1View freight forwarding operating system in five countries, including Belgium, France and Germany. There are now 27 countries that are live on the system, representing approximately 50 percent of total freight forwarding shipments. We continue to expect approximately 70 percent of shipments to be on the new system at the end of our 2014 fiscal year. In addition, we expect to be substantially complete with the system rollout by the middle of fiscal 2015. Because of the progress made in our transformation activities, we removed approximately $30 million in pre-tax operating expenses on an annualized basis at the end of the third quarter. None of these cost reductions are reflected in our third quarter results. We anticipate an additional $10-12 million of annualized pre-tax operating expenses to be removed by the end of our 2014 fiscal year. We expect to realize cumulative gross pre-tax cost savings of approximately $75-95 million on an annualized go-forward basis by the end of fiscal 2015, beginning with the cost actions taken during the third quarter."

Operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $386.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Severance costs in the fiscal 2014 third quarter were $13.2 million on a pre-tax basis, compared to $3.9 million in the same period last year. In addition, the company accrued $5.2 million in the fiscal 2013 third quarter for other costs as a result of a legal judgment relating to a 2006 warehouse fire which was not covered by insurance. Excluding these items, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $373.1 million, compared to $371.8 million in the same period last year. On an organic basis, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs increased 4.2 percent, compared to the same period last year. The increase primarily reflects costs associated with transformation related activities.

The company recorded a tax provision of $9.3 million in the fiscal 2014 third quarter on pretax income of $2.0 million, due to valuation allowances and the mix of taxable income across the company's tax jurisdictions.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:

This press release includes "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the Securities and Exchange Commission rules. UTi believes that meaningful analysis of its financial performance requires an understanding of the factors underlying that performance and the company's judgments about the likelihood that particular factors will repeat. Short-term patterns and long-term trends may be obscured by the impact of certain items. For this reason, the company has included information in this press release relating to organic revenue and organic net revenue changes, which are adjusted to exclude the impact of currency fluctuations between comparable periods. The company also has referred to operating expenses less purchased transportation costs, and to adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs, which are operating expenses less purchased transportation costs that are further adjusted to exclude severance and other costs. The company has also included information relating to organic adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs, which are adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs that are further adjusted to exclude the impact of currency fluctuations between comparable periods. The company has further referred to non-GAAP net income attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc., which is adjusted to exclude severance costs and valuation allowances on deferred tax assets, as described above, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share. This information is among the information the company uses as a basis for evaluating company performance on a comparable basis over time, allocating resources and planning and forecasting of future periods. The company has also provided this information because such adjustments make performance information more comparable to prior disclosures for investors, and may enhance the ability of investors to analyze the company's performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables at the end of this press release.
