SAN MATEO, Calif., July 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WageWorks, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: WAGE), a leader in administering Consumer-Directed Benefits (CDBs), which empower employees to save money on taxes while also providing corporate tax advantages for employers, today announced the Company's financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

"I am very pleased with our second quarter results. Our revenue and adjusted EBITDA exceeded our guidance as we continue to execute on the multiple elements of our growth strategy. Our enterprise selling season is going very well and is fueled by the increased demand for our multiproduct platform and full suite of offerings. We remain encouraged by the larger market trends supporting Consumer-Directed Benefits," said Joe Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of WageWorks.

For the second quarter, WageWorks reported total revenue of $82.8 million, compared to $58.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 41 percent. Healthcare revenue was $43.8 million, compared to $37.6 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 17 percent. Commuter revenue was $16.0 million, compared to $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 6 percent. COBRA revenue was $12.3 million, compared to $3.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 233 percent. Other revenue was $10.6 million, compared to $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 339 percent.

GAAP operating income was $6.8 million for the second quarter of 2015, compared to GAAP operating income of $7.9 million for the second quarter of 2014. GAAP Operating income for the second quarter of 2015 includes aggregate pre-tax charges of $2.1 million related to integration initiatives that will streamline WageWorks' operations and deliver better and more efficient service to WageWorks' customers. This restructuring charge consists primarily of severance costs related to integration initiatives and only impacts reported GAAP results.

On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter of 2015 operating income which excludes the severance charges was $17.5 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $14.5 million for the second quarter of 2014.

GAAP net income was $3.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2015, compared to GAAP net income of $4.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014.

On a non-GAAP net income basis, second quarter of 2015 net income was $10.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $8.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2014 and 2015 excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, contingent consideration expense, and significant severance costs related to integration initiatives and the related tax impact of these items.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $22.2 million for the second quarter of 2015, a 27 percent increase compared to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $17.5 million for the second quarter of 2014.

The reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures for the second quarter 2015 and 2014 is detailed in the tables provided in this press release.

As of June 30, 2015, WageWorks had cash and cash equivalents totaling $496.4 million. This compares to cash and cash equivalents totaling $413.3 million as of December 31, 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the Company's financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company provides non-GAAP financial measure of net income, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and diluted earnings per share. By providing information about both the overall GAAP financial performance and the non-GAAP measures that focus on what management believes to be its ongoing business operations, the Company believes that the additional information enhances investors' overall understanding of the Company's business. The Company's management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, contingent consideration expense, severance costs related to integration initiatives and the related tax impact of all of these items on the provision for income taxes, and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of the Company's business for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. The Company's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Whenever the Company uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed above. Investors are also encouraged to review the Company's GAAP financial statements as reported in its SEC filings.
