On Assignment Reports Results for Third Quarter of 2014

Adjusted Earnings & Adjusted EBITDA in line with Estimates
Repurchased 2.3 million Shares during Quarter

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2014-- On Assignment, Inc. (NYSE: ASGN), a leading global provider of diversified professional staffing solutions, today reported results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenues were $477.8 million; up 13.4 percent year-over-year and 7.2 percent on a pro forma basis (pro forma assumes the acquisitions of Whitaker Medical, LLC and CyberCoders Holdings, Inc. in December 2013 had occurred at the beginning of 2013).
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure defined below) was $31.1 million ($0.57 per diluted share).
  • Income from continuing operations was $22.0 million ($0.41 per diluted share). Income from continuing operations included $1.0 million ($0.6 million net of tax, or $0.01 per diluted share) in acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses, which were not included in our previously announced estimates.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined below) was $56.1 million.
  • Repurchased 2.3 million shares of Common Stock.
  • Leverage ratio (total indebtedness to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA) was 2.06 to 1 at September 30, 2014, up slightly from 1.98 to 1 at June 30, 2014 mainly due to stock repurchases during the quarter.

Commenting on the results, Peter Dameris, President and Chief Executive Officer of On Assignment, Inc., said, “We continue to benefit from greater adoption of staff augmentation as an attractive alternative to full-time and outsourcing solutions. Currently enterprise wide IT spending in large customers, specifically in financial services, is more measured than in small to medium sized customers. We believe this difference in spending cycles between the sub-segments of customers in the IT services market will return to the norm in 2015. While our revenues are growing above market, our rate of growth is below our potential and historical performance. In the second half of this year, especially in the fourth quarter, we are aggressively stepping up our hiring of sales and recruiting personnel to accelerate our future growth rates.”

Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter were $477.8 million, up 13.4 percent year-over-year (7.2 percent on a pro forma basis, which assumes the acquisitions of Whitaker Medical and CyberCoders, had occurred at the beginning of 2013). Our largest segment Apex, which accounts for approximately 64 percent of total revenues, grew 10.5 percent year-over-year.

Gross profit was $155.6 million, up 22.3 percent year-over-year (8.4 percent on a pro forma basis). This improvement was primarily due to growth in revenues (which included the results of the businesses acquired in December 2013) and expansion in gross margin. Gross margin for the quarter was 32.6 percent, up from 30.2 percent in the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year expansion in gross margin was mainly attributable to a higher mix of permanent placement revenues (5.0 percent of revenues for the quarter compared with 1.7 percent in the third quarter of 2013) and higher contract margins. The higher mix of permanent placement revenues in the quarter was attributable to the inclusion of CyberCoders, which accounted for $17.2 million of the $23.7 million in permanent placement revenues.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $108.7 million (22.8 percent of revenues), up from $86.3 million (20.5 percent of revenues) in the third quarter of 2013 ($98.7 million, or 22.2 percent of revenues all on a pro forma basis). SG&A expenses for the quarter included acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses of $1.0 million. The increase in our reported SG&A as a percent of revenues was due to the inclusion of CyberCoders, which has higher gross margin and higher SG&A as a percent of revenues than our other business units.

Amortization of intangible assets was $6.0 million, compared with $5.2 million in the third quarter of 2013. The increase related to amortization from the businesses acquired in December 2013.

Interest expense for the quarter was $3.1 million compared with $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2013. Interest expense for the quarter was comprised of interest on the credit facility of $2.8 million and amortization of capitalized loan costs of $0.3 million. The leverage ratio (total indebtedness to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA) at September 30, 2014 was 2.06 to 1, up from 1.98 to 1 at June 30, 2014.

The effective income tax rate for the quarter was 41.7 percent, a slight increase from the 41.6 percent for the full year 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of intangible assets plus equity-based compensation expense, impairment charges, acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses), was $56.1 million, up from $47.6 million for the third quarter of 2013.

Adjusted income from continuing operations was $31.1 million ($0.57 per diluted share). Income from continuing operations (which includes acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses of $1.0 million, or $0.6 million net of tax) was $22.0 million ($0.41 per diluted share) compared with $19.5 million ($0.36 per diluted share) for the third quarter of 2013. Net income was $22.0 million ($0.41 per diluted share) compared with $20.2 million ($0.37 per diluted share) in the third quarter of 2013.

Share Repurchase Program

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 2.3 million shares of its common stock under terms of the $100 million repurchase program approved by its Board of Directors in July 2014. The average price of the stock repurchased was $29.46, which includes broker commissions. The amount remaining under the $100 million authorization is approximately $31.8 million.

Financial Estimates for Q4 2014

On Assignment is providing financial estimates for continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2014. These estimates do not include acquisition, integration, or strategic planning expenses and assume no deterioration in the staffing markets that On Assignment serves.

  • Revenues of $467.0 million to $473.0 million
  • Gross margin of 31.9 percent to 32.3 percent
  • SG&A expense (excludes amortization of intangible assets) of $109.0 to $110.0 million (includes $3.8 million in depreciation and $4.4 million in equity-based compensation expense)
  • Amortization of intangible assets of $6.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $48.0 million to $51.0 million
  • Effective tax rate of 41.9 percent
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations of $26.3 million to $28.1 million
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.50 to $0.53
  • Income from continuing operations of $17.7 million to $19.5 million
  • Income from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.33 to $0.37
  • Diluted shares outstanding of 53.1 million

These estimates assume year-over-year revenue growth on a reported basis of approximately 10 percent for Apex, low teens for Oxford (low single digit on a pro forma basis), approximately 20 percent for Physician (low single digits on a pro forma basis) and a high-single digit decline for Life Sciences-Europe. Pro forma growth rates assume the acquisitions of CyberCoders (included in Oxford segment) and Whitaker Medical (included in Physician segment) occurred at the beginning of 2013. The above estimates assume billable days of 60.9 for the quarter, which are 2.8 fewer days than the preceding quarter. Based on the average revenue per billable day in the third quarter of 2014, the effect on revenues for the fourth quarter of fewer billable days than the preceding quarter is approximately $20 million.

Reasons for Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Statements in this release and the Supplemental Financial Information accompanying include non-GAAP financial measures. Such information is provided as additional information, not as an alternative to our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, and is intended to enhance an overall understanding of our current financial performance. The Supplemental Financial Information sets forth financial measures reviewed by our management to evaluate our operating performance. Such measures also are used to determine a portion of the compensation for some of our executives and employees. We believe the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management, investors and prospective investors by excluding certain charges and other amounts that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results. These non-GAAP measures are included to provide management, our investors and prospective investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of our ongoing operations and to provide a more consistent basis for comparison between quarters. One of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of intangible assets), other terms include Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA plus equity-based compensation expense, impairment charges, write-off of loan costs, and acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses) and Non-GAAP Income from continuing operations (Income from continuing operations, plus write-off of loan costs, and acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses, net of tax) and Adjusted income from continuing operations and related per share amounts. These terms might not be calculated in the same manner as, and thus might not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Safe Harbor

Certain statements made in this news release are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and involve a high degree of risk and uncertainty. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding the Company's anticipated financial and operating performance in 2014. All statements in this release, other than those setting forth strictly historical information, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results might differ materially. In particular, the Company makes no assurances that the estimates of revenues, gross margin, SG&A, Adjusted EBITDA, income from continuing operations, adjusted income from continuing operations, earnings per share or earnings per diluted share set forth above will be achieved. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include actual demand for our services, our ability to attract, train and retain qualified staffing consultants, our ability to remain competitive in obtaining and retaining temporary staffing clients, the availability of qualified temporary professionals, management of our growth, continued performance of our enterprise-wide information systems, our ability to manage our potential or actual litigation matters, the successful integration of our recently acquired subsidiaries, the successful implementation of our five-year strategic plan, and other risks detailed from time to time in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, as filed with the SEC on March 3, 2014 and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014 as filed with the SEC on May 9, 2014 and August 11, 2014, respectively. We specifically disclaim any intention or duty to update any forward-looking statements contained in this news release.

______

(1) Non-GAAP income from continuing operations as calculated on preceding page. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations excludes acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses.

(2) Amortization of intangible assets of acquired businesses.

(3) Income tax benefit (using 39 percent marginal tax rate) from amortization for income tax purposes of certain indefinite-lived intangible assets (goodwill and trademarks), on acquisitions in which the Company received a step-up tax basis. For income tax purposes, these assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over 15 years.

(1) The segments reported above reflect the new segment realignment resulting from the operational changes that occurred in the first quarter of 2014. As a result of this realignment, Apex now includes Lab Support US (that was formerly part of our Life Sciences Segment), Oxford now includes our Clinical Research division (that was formerly part of our Life Sciences Segment) and the European Life Sciences unit (that was formerly part of our Life Sciences Segment) is now reported as Life Sciences Europe. In addition, as reported in the fourth quarter of 2013, Oxford also includes our Health Information Management unit and CyberCoders. Our quarterly and full year historical segment data for 2012 and 2013 have been restated to conform to this configuration, which are included in an Appendix to our Analysts’ Day presentation that is included on our website.
