UTi Worldwide Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2015 Results

LONG BEACH, Calif., March 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UTi Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:UTIW) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 31, 2015.

Fiscal Full Year 2015 vs. 2014 Results

  • Revenues decreased 5.8% to $4,179.8 million from $4,435.6 million
  • Net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) decreased 4.0% to $1,457.6 million from $1,517.8 million
  • On a constant currency basis, revenues decreased 3.2% percent and net revenues decreased 0.5%, respectively
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. increased to $203.2 million from $83.3 million
  • Diluted loss per share increased to $2.04 from $0.80 per diluted common share
  • Severance and other costs increased to $51.2 million from $29.6 million
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding severance and other costs (adjusted EBITDA), decreased to $20.2 million from $90.7 million.

Edward G. Feitzinger, chief executive officer, said, "Fiscal 2015 was a challenging year for the Company. Our results for the fourth quarter were particularly disappointing and included a number of one-time charges that stemmed from our January restructuring and reorganization efforts. Importantly, the fourth quarter represents the final chapter under the prior playbook. Starting in late January, we began implementing our new strategic direction for our freight forwarding business. We took decisive actions to right-size our cost structure, which is expected to result in $33 million in annual cost savings in addition to the $45 million in annual cost savings we already delivered exiting fiscal year 2015. We streamlined our geographic and leadership structure to maximize the growth potential of the freight forwarding business. We also made progress improving our working capital efficiency, which we expect will continue going forward. I am pleased with the actions taken so far in my relatively short tenure as CEO, and look forward to capturing their full benefits in fiscal 2016. We have identified the needed changes, made many of the required improvements, and geared the organization for success in the long term. As we move beyond the heavy lifting of our recent restructuring efforts, we still have a lot of hard work ahead of us. However, we are confident that we have our costs under control, with the right structure, strategy, and network foundation in place for us to achieve our goals this year and beyond."

Financial Results for Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2015

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015, revenues decreased 10.0% to $964.6 million, compared to $1,071.8 million for the prior year period, while net revenues decreased 14.5% to $312.2 million, compared to $365.2 million for the prior year period. The decrease in revenue and net revenue was primarily related to lower air and ocean yields and volumes in freight forwarding as well as the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the Euro and South African Rand. On a constant currency basis, net revenues declined 9.8%. Operating loss for the quarter was $91.6 million compared to $36.8 million for the prior year period, primarily due to lower net revenues and $14.6 million in higher severance and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $45.2 million compared to positive $1.6 million for the prior year period. Free cash flow (defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures) was positive $40.7 million for the quarter compared to negative $46.1 million for the prior year period.

Contract Logistics and Distribution

Net revenues for Contract Logistics and Distribution decreased 1.6% to $193.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $196.9 million in the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, net revenues increased 3.6%. Operating income was $0.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $2.8 million for the same period last year. The variance is primarily related to currency exchange rate fluctuations and increased severance costs in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 as the Company shut down underperforming locations.

Freight Forwarding

Net revenues for Freight Forwarding decreased 29.7% to $118.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $168.2 million in the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, net revenues decreased 25.5%. The decrease was primarily related to significantly lower ocean yields coupled with a 6.6% decline in air freight volumes and a 4.9% decline in ocean freight volumes. The operating loss was $61.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $15.1 million for the same period last year.

Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2015

For fiscal 2015, revenues decreased 5.8% to $4,179.8 million, compared to $4,435.6 million for fiscal 2014. Net revenues for fiscal 2015 decreased 4.0% to $1,457.6 million, compared to $1,517.8 million for fiscal 2014. The decrease in revenue and net revenue was primarily related to lower air and ocean freight forwarding yields and lower volumes in freight forwarding, as well as currency exchange rate fluctuations. Operating loss for fiscal 2015 was $115.8 million compared to $17.8 million for fiscal 2014, primarily due to lower net revenues, $10.5 million in higher amortization costs associated with our 1View freight forwarding operating system and $21.5 million in higher severance and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.2 million for fiscal 2015 compared to $90.7 million for fiscal 2014. Free cash flow was negative $91.1 million for fiscal 2015 compared to negative $175.4 million for fiscal 2014.

Richard G. Rodick, chief financial officer, said, "While our free cash flow improved sequentially for the third quarter in a row, we fell short of our free cash flow goal for the entire year due to the earnings loss we experienced in the fourth quarter. I am disappointed we did not achieve our annual free cash flow target, but I am pleased with the progress we have made in managing our working capital during the fourth quarter as it improved approximately $100 million when compared to the fourth quarter last year, and we expect significant continued improvement."

Updated Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

Based on current visibility, business trends and currency exchange rates, the Company updated its financial guidance for the full fiscal year 2016.

  • The Company expects adjusted EBITDA to be within the range of $125 million to $150 million; and,
  • The Company anticipates a year over year reduction in working capital in the range of $175 million to $200 million.

The updated EBITDA guidance for the year reflects several new assumptions, with the movement in currency exchange rates being one of the most significant factors. The Company's outlook assumes currency exchange rates of 1.05 for the Euro and 12.5 for the Rand throughout the year. Unfavorable currency movements since December 2014 account for approximately $20 million to $25 million of the revised EBITDA estimate.

The Company's revised EBITDA outlook also reflects lower expectations for revenue and net revenue in the freight forwarding business as the Company ramps its efforts in executing its new strategy. While the Company continues to expect operating income improvements in fiscal 2016 for the CL&D business on a constant currency basis, unfavorable exchange rates are expected to adversely impact reported results.

Edward G. Feitzinger, chief executive officer, commented, "Our updated EBITDA guidance reflects recent negative currency movements and net revenue trends, and our desire to set appropriate expectations based on the significant structural changes we have made over the past two months. We are making progress towards becoming a more nimble organization with clear objectives and increased accountability to delivering tangible results. We still have work to do in executing against our strategy, but I am encouraged by the initial momentum from the changes we have recently implemented. The confidence I have in our team, strategy and market position gives me comfort that we are well positioned for the new fiscal year."

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 regarding net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) and regarding constant currency revenue and net revenue changes, which are adjusted to exclude the impact of currency fluctuations between comparable periods. In addition, 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 (as set out in the reconciliation). The Company has also 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. 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 generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP). Further, neither free cash flow nor adjusted EBITDA represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, are 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.
