PRGX Global, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

ATLANTA, Aug. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRGX Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), a global leader in Recovery Audit and Spend Analytics services, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

"We are pleased to report our fourth consecutive quarter of growth in revenue from continuing operations, delivering 10.4% growth on a year-over-year constant dollar basis. We also continue to successfully execute on our long-term strategy of growing our core recovery audit business while expanding our client value proposition into analytics and supplier information management services. We are starting to see positive client response to our Lavante SIM™ services and signed several contracts during the quarter. In addition, after announcing the PRGX OPTIX™ analytics suite in February, we experienced positive client traction with five active engagements in Q2. We are encouraged by the growing pipeline of opportunities with new and existing clients in our adjacent services business,” said Ron Stewart, president and chief executive officer of PRGX.

“Our global recovery audit business also delivered another solid quarter, led by our global commercial recovery audit business, which achieved year-over-year organic growth of 52.4% driven by growth in every region of the world," continued Stewart.

"Based on our Q2 results and continued momentum, we remain confident that we will meet our 2017 guidance of year-over-year double digit revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth on a constant dollar basis," concluded Stewart.

In addition to historical information, this press release includes certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include both implied and express statements regarding the Company's overall condition and growth prospects, the Company's execution of its business strategy, the Company's progress in integrating recent acquisitions, the level of client interest in the PRGX OPTIX analytics suite and Lavante SIM solution, and the Company's expectations regarding its ability to achieve its 2017 guidance.

Risks that could affect the Company's future performance include revenue that does not meet expectations or justify costs incurred, the Company's ability to develop material sources of new revenue in addition to revenue from its core recovery audit services, changes in the market for the Company's services, the Company's ability to retain and attract qualified personnel, the Company's ability to integrate recent and future acquisitions, uncertainty in the credit markets, the Company's ability to maintain compliance with its financial covenants, client bankruptcies, loss of major clients, and other risks generally applicable to the Company's business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are all "non-GAAP financial measures" presented as supplemental measures of the Company's performance. They are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. The Company believes these measures provide additional meaningful information in evaluating its performance over time, and that the rating agencies and a number of lenders use EBITDA and similar measures for similar purposes. In addition, a measure similar to Adjusted EBITDA is used in the restrictive covenants contained in the Company's secured credit facility. However, EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. In addition, in evaluating EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that, as described above, the adjustments may vary from period to period and in the future the Company will incur expenses such as those used in calculating these measures. The Company's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. Schedule 3 to this press release provides a reconciliation of net income (loss) to each of EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.
