LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UTi Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:UTIW) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2015 second quarter ended July 31, 2014.

Fiscal Second Quarter 2015 vs. 2014 Results:

  • Revenues were $1,091.2 million, a decrease of 3.4 percent from $1,129.4 million.
  • Net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) were $401.2 million, an increase of 4.0 percent from $385.6 million.
  • On an organic basis, revenues decreased 2.7 percent and net revenues increased 5.5 percent versus the comparable prior year period.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $16.9 million in the fiscal 2015 second quarter. Net loss attributable to common shareholders after dividends on preferred stock was $0.19 per diluted common share.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. in the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $4.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted common share.
  • The company recorded severance and other costs of $1.6 million compared to $3.2 million. In addition, UTi recorded additional tax expense exceeding its normalized tax rate of $11.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted common share.
  • Excluding severance and other costs and the additional tax expense described above, non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $4.2 million. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to common shareholders after preferred stock dividends was $0.07 per diluted common share.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted for severance and other costs (adjusted EBITDA1) totaled $30.0 million compared to $29.0 million.
  • All references to adjusted items, free cash flow (defined as cash flow from operations less net capital expenditures) 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, "We recorded solid progress in the second quarter with net revenues, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow all improving on a year-over-year basis. On a constant-currency basis, our overall net revenue rose 5.5 percent in the second quarter compared to the same period last year. This was primarily due to a significant increase in business activity in contract logistics and distribution, particularly in our Americas and EMENA regions. Net revenue in freight forwarding was slightly higher in the second quarter on a year-over-year basis.

"Adjusted EBITDA increased nearly nine percent on a constant-currency basis, despite $10.2 million of temporary costs related to the transformation. Our contract logistics and distribution segment had an excellent quarter, with adjusted EBITDA reflecting the improvements we have been making in this business over the past two years. Adjusted EBITDA in freight forwarding was negatively impacted by temporary costs, as expected. Transformation-related cost reductions continued at an annualized pace of approximately $50 million through the end of the second quarter. We remain on track to achieve $95 million in annualized cost savings by the end of fiscal 2015. As a result, we are targeting EBITDA in fiscal 2016 in the range of $190 million to $210 million, with results improving throughout the year."

Kirchner continued, "The rollout of our 1View freight forwarding operating system is substantially complete, and the system is performing as expected. In the past year we have more than doubled the number of countries deployed on our 1View and Oracle platforms, and today virtually all freight forwarding transactions are processed through the new systems. As a result, we have turned our focus away from system implementations toward making the best use of our new capabilities to win business and improve operational effectiveness."

Operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $394.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Excluding severance and other costs, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $392.5 million, compared to $372.4 million in the same period last year.

The company recorded a tax provision of $10.3 million in the fiscal 2015 second quarter on a pretax loss of $3.9 million, due to increases in valuation allowances and the mix of taxable income across the company's tax jurisdictions.

Free cash flow was negative $10.4 million in the fiscal 2015 second quarter, compared to negative $22.8 million in the same quarter last year. During the fiscal 2015 second quarter, trade receivables declined $37.5 million (excluding the effects of currency), as a result of increased collections and a significant reduction in work-in-process.

Richard G. Rodick, chief financial officer, said, "We made significant progress in reducing our accounts receivable balance in the fiscal 2015 second quarter. As a result, the fiscal 2015 second quarter was our best free cash flow period in six quarters, and better than any second quarter in three years. We continue to expect increased collection of trade receivables and a reduction in work-in-process for the remainder of fiscal 2015. Based on these assumptions, we continue to target positive free cash flow for the full fiscal year."

___________

1In the fiscal 2015 second quarter, the company modified its calculation of adjusted EBITDA to no longer include interest income or exclude stock-based compensation.

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 loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc., which is adjusted to exclude severance and other costs, valuation allowances on deferred tax assets, and changes in the company's normalized tax rate, as described above, and non-GAAP net loss per diluted share attributable to common shareholders. In addition, the company has referred to free cash flow, which is cash flow from operations less purchases of property, plant and equipment (net of proceeds from disposals), as well as purchases of software and other intangible assets. Finally, the company has referred to adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), which is adjusted to exclude severance and other costs. 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. In addition, the company's management believes that presenting adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding underlying business trends and performance of the company's ongoing operations. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the relevant measures prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Further, adjusted EBITDA does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, is not derived in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables at the end of this press release.

(1) During the three months ended July 31, 2014 and 2013, the company recorded pre-tax severance of $1,643 and $3,180, respectively, primarily related to transformation activities.
(2) The provision for income tax adjustment related to the severance and other costs was calculated based on the prevailing tax rate in each jurisdiction.
(3) The company recorded additional tax expense exceeding its normalized tax rates. This is due to valuation allowances and the mix of taxable income across the company's tax jurisdictions. The company's estimated normalized tax rates on an adjusted basis are 35% and 30%, respectively, for the three months ended July 31, 2014, and 2013. These rates are estimated rates based upon historical average effective tax rates experienced by the company for the prior periods FY10 through FY12 during which the company had consistent profitability. These rates are dependent upon many factors including but not limited to the mix of income and loss generated across jurisdictions and enacted statutory tax rates.
