UTi Worldwide Reports Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter Results

LONG BEACH, Calif., Dec. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UTi Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:UTIW) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2015 third quarter ended October 31, 2014.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2015 vs. 2014 Results:

  • Revenues were $1,078.3 million, a decrease of 6.6 percent from $1,154.4 million.
  • Net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) were $381.0 million, a decrease of 3.1 percent from $393.5 million.
  • On a constant currency basis, revenues decreased 4.3 percent and net revenues increased 0.1 percent versus the comparable prior year period.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $34.0 million in the fiscal 2015 third quarter. Net loss attributable to common shareholders after dividends on preferred stock was $0.35 per diluted common share.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. in the fiscal 2014 third quarter was $9.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share.
  • The company recorded severance and other costs of $23.7 million compared to $13.2 million. The $23.7 million includes a $19.6 million receivable impairment resulting from a customer bankruptcy. In addition, UTi recorded additional tax expense exceeding its normalized tax rate of $7.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted common share.
  • Non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $4.8 million. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to common shareholders after preferred stock dividends was $0.08 per diluted common share.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted for severance and other costs (adjusted EBITDA), totaled $23.1 million (which includes $11.3 million in temporary costs) compared to $39.8 million.
  • All references to adjusted items, free cash flow (defined as cash flow from operations less net capital expenditures), constant currency items, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in this release refer to non-GAAP results. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP is provided in the supplemental financial information attached to this release.

Edward G. Feitzinger, chief executive officer, said, "Earlier this year, we were working through service issues and billing challenges associated with the rollout of our freight forwarding system in the United States. Since then, our service has improved dramatically. These past issues adversely impacted freight forwarding growth and free cash flow for several quarters. The third quarter marked a turning point in a number of areas. Airfreight kilos improved on a year over year basis for the month of October and adjusted EBITDA improved each month during the quarter. Free cash flow also turned positive in a quarter where we have historically had negative cash flow. In addition, by the end of Q3 we had completed approximately half of our previously announced incremental $45 million annualized cost savings target for fiscal year 2015. These actions, together with growth initiatives and other improvements, give us confidence in our previously-stated fiscal 2016 adjusted EBITDA target of $190 million to $210 million."

"In the third quarter, adjusted EBITDA decreased approximately $17 million as compared to the same period last year, primarily due to lower freight forwarding revenues and $11 million in temporary costs. Contract logistics and distribution adjusted EBITDA was flat on a year over year basis, but the results were negatively impacted by new business start-ups and the timing of project related work. Adjusted EBITDA in freight forwarding declined primarily due to lower air freight volumes and costs related to transformation."

Operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $403.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. Excluding severance and other costs, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $379.6 million, compared to $373.1 million in the same period last year.

The company recorded a tax provision of $2.3 million in the fiscal 2015 third quarter on a pretax loss of $33.0 million, due to increases in valuation allowances and the mix of taxable income across the company's tax jurisdictions.

Free cash flow was positive $8.5 million in the fiscal 2015 third quarter, which represents a $48 million improvement as compared to the same quarter last year. Richard G. Rodick, chief financial officer, said, "We improved our free cash flow significantly in the fiscal 2015 third quarter. As a result, the fiscal 2015 third quarter was our first positive free cash flow period in seven quarters, and better than any third quarter since fiscal 2012. We continue to believe that positive free cash flow for the full fiscal year is achievable, and we have additional incremental opportunity in fiscal 2016."

The company recorded a $19.6 million receivable impairment in the fiscal 2015 third quarter relating to a customer bankruptcy. The total amount owed to the company is $24.9 million. The company filed an insurance claim for approximately $16 million under the terms of a policy related to a portion of the impaired amount. The company's insurance provider has not yet accepted or rejected the claim. The company believes that a substantial portion of the claim will eventually be paid, but as required under GAAP, the company has not recognized any benefit from its potential insurance recovery.

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 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 constant currency revenue and 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 (including a receivable impairment). The company has further referred to non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc., which is adjusted to exclude severance and other costs (including a receivable impairment), 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 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), and to adjusted EBITDA, which is EBITDA adjusted to exclude severance and other costs (including a receivable impairment). 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.
