Attracting world-class talent, increasing emphasis on disciplined execution

NEW YORK, July 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hudson Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSON), a leading global talent solutions company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

2013 Second Quarter Summary

  • Revenue of $171.4 million, down 16.3 percent from the second quarter of 2012, or 15.5 percent in constant currency. Sequentially, revenue was up 3.4 percent or 5.4 percent in constant currency.
  • Gross margin of $60.5 million, a 21.5 percent decrease from the same period last year, or 21.1 percent in constant currency. Sequentially, gross margin increased 6.8 percent or 8.8 percent in constant currency.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss* of $2.5 million, including $0.7 million of costs related to the chief financial officer transition, as compared with positive $3.7 million in the same period last year. Sequentially, adjusted EBITDA improved 48.8 percent or 50.2 percent in constant currency.
  • Restructuring charges of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $5.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted share, as compared with net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the same period last year. Sequentially, net loss improved 29.5 percent.

* Adjusted EBITDA is defined in the segment tables at the end of this release.

"In the second quarter, our business began to stabilize and delivered sequential performance improvements. These are early indicators of progress in our efforts to return to profitability and achieve sustainable top and bottom line growth," said Manuel Marquez, chairman and chief executive officer at Hudson. "Our results this quarter remained below that of a year ago, reflecting the challenges of implementing a transformation plan in a difficult macroeconomic environment.

"However, we believe that we are turning the corner. We had sequential growth in most markets, significant new RPO client wins, and positive momentum in Legal eDiscovery. Most importantly, we have attracted world-class talent to reinforce our leadership team. We enter the next stage of our transformation with a well-equipped organization to drive disciplined execution and deliver on the promise of our long-term strategy."

Stephen Nolan, chief financial officer at Hudson, stated, "Our priorities are identifying opportunities to increase our top-line, improve our operating margin, and drive more effective execution. We were pleased to unlock $2 million in annual cost savings in our European operations. We are assessing the company's plan to put Hudson on the right path to profitability, and I am working with the team to accelerate the company's progress."

Regional Highlights

Americas

Hudson Americas' gross margin decreased 25 percent in the second quarter as compared with the same period in 2012. Sequentially, gross margin increased 14 percent, led by strong advances in permanent placement in both the IT and RPO practices. The quarterly decline versus prior year was driven primarily by a 32 percent reduction in eDiscovery gross margin, though the business grew sequentially with contractor levels increasing 16 percent from April to June. RPO gross margin decreased 30 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012, which included revenue from a large client lost during that quarter, which we expect to be offset going forward by several recent new business wins. Actions taken to reduce costs delivered SG&A* and headcount reductions of 18 percent and 22 percent, respectively, from the same period a year ago, offsetting a significant portion of the gross margin decline from the same quarter a year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.5 million for the second quarter, or 4.1 percent of revenue, compared with $2.5 million, or 5.4 percent of revenue for same quarter a year ago and a loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2013.

Asia Pacific

Continuing uncertainties and reduced hiring in Australia, along with lower demand from and within China contributed to a gross margin decline of 23 percent in constant currency in Asia Pacific from the prior year period. On a sequential basis, gross margin increased 17 percent in constant currency in the second quarter, led by growth in permanent recruitment and a strong quarter in RPO. Actions taken to reduce costs resulted in an SG&A* decline of 16 percent and headcount decline of 13 percent from the same period last year, offsetting 62 percent of the gross margin decline. The region delivered adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million, or 1.1 percent of revenue, down from $3.7 million, or 4.8 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2012 and as compared with a loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of this year.

Europe

European gross margin declined 18 percent in constant currency compared with the second quarter of 2012. Sequentially, gross margin increased slightly from the first quarter of 2013 in constant currency, with growth in most continental European markets. Gross margin in the U.K. experienced declines from the same quarter in the prior year in both temporary and permanent recruitment, down 16 percent and 15 percent respectively in constant currency. In continental Europe, reduced hiring activity continued to impact permanent recruitment, down 25 percent in constant currency. The Netherlands and Spain delivered profitable EBITDA amidst a difficult economic backdrop. The company executed a restructuring and renegotiated its major lease agreement in France, which will result in approximately $2 million in annual cost savings. Actions taken to address costs across Europe resulted in SG&A* and headcount reductions of 11 percent and 16 percent, respectively, from the same period a year ago, offsetting 59 percent of the gross margin decline. Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million was down from $2.4 million or 3.0 percent of revenue for the quarter a year ago, and up slightly sequentially.

* SG&A does not include non-operating expenses and rent redundancy. Refer to the Segment Analysis later in this document for reconciliation.

Experienced Talent Joining Hudson

Hudson has continued to attract world-class industry executives to take leadership roles in the company.

  • Anthony Martin and Tony Caputo joined Hudson Americas in July to help accelerate top line growth.
  • Anthony Martin joins as EVP, RPO and Talent Management Americas. Previously, he held roles leading product development, service delivery and global strategy for the managed services business of the SourceRight division of Randstad.
  • Tony Caputo joins as SVP, Sales and Business Development for the Hudson Legal eDiscovery practice. Previously, he was General Manager of the Perceptiv and Governance divisions and led Global Sales at Recommind, one of Hudson's technology partners.
  • Alexis de Bretteville joined to lead Hudson's French business. Previously, he spent 20 years at Michael Page, where he was most recently a member of their Global Executive Board and Regional Managing Director of the Americas.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The company ended the second quarter of 2013 with $64.1 million in liquidity, composed of $28.3 million in cash and $35.8 million in availability under its credit facilities. This compares with $28.9 million in cash and $51.3 million in availability under its credit facilities at the end of the second quarter of 2012. The company used $3.4 million in cash flow from operations during the quarter. The company had $0.7 million in outstanding borrowings at the end of the second quarter.

Business Outlook

Given the slower seasonal period of the third quarter and current economic conditions, the company expects third quarter 2013 revenue of between $165 million to $175 million and adjusted EBITDA to be between negative $3 million and negative $5 million at prevailing exchange rates before restructuring charges. The company anticipates the remaining $0.8 million of board approved restructuring charges to be incurred in the second half of 2013. In the third quarter of 2012, revenue was $187.9 million and adjusted EBITDA was $1.5 million.

HUDSON GLOBAL, INC.
RECONCILIATION FOR CONSTANT CURRENCY
(in thousands) (unaudited)
The company operates on a global basis, with the majority of its gross margin generated outside of the United States. Accordingly, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect its results of operations. Constant currency information compares financial results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. The company currently defines the term "constant currency" to mean that financial data for a previously reported period are translated into U.S. dollars using the same foreign currency exchange rates that were used to translate financial data for the current period. Changes in revenue, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), business reorganization expenses and other non-operating income (expense), operating income (loss) and EBITDA (loss) include the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Variance analysis usually describes period-to-period variances that are calculated using constant currency as a percentage. The company's management reviews and analyzes business results in constant currency and believes these results better represent the company's underlying business trends. The company believes that these calculations are a useful measure, indicating the actual change in operations. There are no significant gains or losses on foreign currency transactions between subsidiaries. Therefore, changes in foreign currency exchange rates generally impact only reported earnings.
