On Assignment Reports Results for First Quarter of 2015

Adjusted EPS & Adjusted EBITDA within Previously Announced Estimates

Closes Sale of Physician Segment

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 29, 2015-- On Assignment, Inc. (NYSE: ASGN), a leading global provider of diversified professional staffing solutions, today reported results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. Operating results of the Physician Segment, which was sold effective February 1, 2015, are included in discontinued operations for all periods presented.

First Quarter Highlights

  • Revenues were $430.0 million; up 5.7 percent year-over-year (6.7 percent on a constant currency basis). Adverse effect of inclement weather on revenues was approximately $4.5 to $5.5 million ($2.0 million higher than previous estimates) and foreign currency exchange rates adversely affected revenues $0.9 million more than expected.
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations (a non-GAAP measure defined below) was $21.6 million ($0.41 per diluted share).
  • Excluding the $1.3 million ($0.8 million after income taxes) in acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses incurred during the quarter, which was not included in our earnings estimates, income from continuing operations was $13.8 million ($0.26 per diluted share).
  • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure defined below) was $38.7 million.
  • Closed the sale of the Physician Segment for $123.0 million ($25.7 million gain, net of tax). Operating results of this segment are included in Discontinued Operations for all periods presented.
  • Repurchased 43,000 shares of Common Stock at average price per share of $38.26. (Total share repurchases since June 30, 2014 were 3.4 million at an average price of $29.89.)
  • Leverage ratio (total indebtedness to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA) was 1.77 to 1 at March 31, 2015, down from 2.06 to 1 at December 31, 2014.

Commenting on the results, Peter Dameris, President and Chief Executive Officer of On Assignment, Inc., said, "Despite lower than estimated revenues, our Adjusted Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA were within our financial estimates for the quarter. Our revenues for the quarter were adversely effected more than expected by the inclement weather in March and the further strengthening of the US dollar relative to the Euro, which combined caused an unfavorable revenue variance of approximately $3.0 million. Our Oxford Segment for the quarter grew 10.4 percent on a constant currency basis, its highest quarterly growth rate since 2013. Our Apex Segment, grew 5.7 percent, and continues to be hampered by spending at certain of its large financial services and government customers.

During the quarter, we believe we made important progress in expanding our internal staff of sales consultants and recruiters and positioning ourselves to continue our growth through strategic acquisitions. The average number of sales consultants and recruiters during the quarter was 1,887, which is up 14.6 percent year-over-year. We expect to see higher revenues from this investment beginning in the third quarter as the typical ramp up time for new staff is 9 to 12 months."

First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter were $430.0 million, up 5.7 percent year-over-year (6.7 percent on a constant currency basis). Revenues for the quarter were adversely affected $4.5 to $5.5 million from inclement weather. Foreign currency exchange adversely affected revenues $4.0 million year-over-year.

Our largest segment, Apex, which accounts for approximately 68.4 percent of total revenues, grew 5.7 percent year-over-year and our second largest segment, Oxford, which accounts for approximately 29.6 percent of total revenues, grew 8.5 percent year-over-year (10.4 percent on a constant currency basis).

Gross profit was $135.9 million, up 6.0 percent year-over-year. This improvement was primarily due to growth in revenues and expansion in gross margin. Gross margin for the quarter was 31.6 percent, up from 31.5 percent in the first quarter of 2014. The year-over-year expansion in gross margin related to the higher mix of direct hire and conversion revenues, which were 5.6 percent of total revenues, up from 4.7 percent in the first quarter of 2014.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $105.9 million (24.6 percent of revenues), up from $96.1 million (23.6 percent of revenues) in the first quarter of 2014. SG&A expenses for the quarter included acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses of $1.3 million and approximately $2.0 million related to our accelerated hiring of sales consultants and recruiters.

Amortization of intangible assets was $4.9 million, compared with $5.5 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Interest expense for the quarter was $3.1 million compared with $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. Interest expense for the quarter was comprised of interest on the credit facility of $2.7 million and amortization of capitalized loan costs of $0.4 million. The leverage ratio (total indebtedness to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA) at March 31, 2015 was 1.77 to 1, down from 2.06 to 1 at December 31, 2014.

The effective income tax rate for the quarter was 40.8 percent, a slight decrease from the 41.2 percent for the full year 2014.

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 $38.7 million, up from $38.2 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Adjusted income from continuing operations was $21.6 million ($0.41 per diluted share). Income from continuing operations (which includes acquisition, integration and strategic planning expenses of $1.3 million, or $0.8 million net of tax) was $13.0 million ($0.25 per diluted share) compared with $13.6 million ($0.25 per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2014.

Net income was $39.1 million ($0.75 per diluted share) compared with $13.9 million ($0.25 per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2014. Net income included income from discontinued operations of $26.1 million ($0.50 per diluted share), mainly related to the gain on the sale of the Physician Segment.

Sale of Physician Segment

On February 1, 2015 the Company completed the sale of its Physician Segment for $123.0 million and recognized a gain of $25.7 million, net of tax. After tax proceeds from the sale were approximately $108 million.

Share Repurchase Program

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 43,000 shares of its common stock. Since June 30, 2014, the Company has repurchased approximately 3.4 million shares at an average price per share of $29.89. The amount remaining under the current board-approved share repurchase program is approximately $98.4 million.

Financial Estimates for Q2 2015

On Assignment is providing financial estimates for continuing operations for the second quarter of 2015. These estimates do not include acquisition, integration, or strategic planning expenses and assume no deterioration in the staffing markets that On Assignment serves. These estimates also assume no further deterioration in foreign exchange rates.

  • Revenues of $454.0 million to $459.0 million
  • Gross margin of 32.5 percent to 33.0 percent
  • SG&A expense (excludes amortization of intangible assets) of $107.0 to $108.0 million (includes $3.7 million in depreciation and $5.0 million in equity-based compensation expense)
  • Amortization of intangible assets of $5.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $49.0 million to $52.0 million
  • Effective tax rate of 40.0 percent
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations of $27.5 million to $29.3 million
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.53 to $0.56
  • Income from continuing operations of $19.5 million to $21.3 million
  • Income from continuing operations per diluted share of $0.37 to $0.41
  • Diluted shares outstanding of 52.1 million

The above estimates assume billable days of 63.5 for the quarter, which are 1.5 days more than the preceding quarter and 0.3 fewer days than the second quarter of 2014. The estimates also assume a foreign currency exchange rate of 1.08 (US dollar to the Euro).

The mid-point of the revenue range above implies year-over-year growth of 5.1 percent (6.4 percent on a constant currency basis). The revenue estimates assume mid-single digit growth for Apex, mid-to-high single-digit growth at Oxford and a year-over-year decline for Life Sciences Europe on a constant currency basis.

Reasons for Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Statements in this release and the accompanying Supplemental Financial Information 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 Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the US ("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 a 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 2015. 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 ("SEC"), including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, as filed with the SEC on March 2, 2015. 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. For financial reporting purposes, these assets are not amortized and a deferred tax provision is recorded that fully offsets the cash tax benefit in the determination of net income.

(4) Excess capital expenditures over depreciation is equal to one-quarter of the estimated full year difference between capital expenditures less depreciation, tax affected using an estimated marginal combined federal and state tax rate of 39 percent.

(5) Income taxes (assuming a 39 percent marginal rate) on the portion of amortization of intangible assets, which is not deductible for income tax purposes (mainly amortization associated with the acquisition of CyberCoders, Inc. that the Company was not able to step-up the tax basis in those acquired assets for tax purposes).

(6) Amounts have been restated to exclude results of the Physician Segment from continuing operations. The Physician Segment was sold on February 1, 2015 and its results are now included in discontinued operations.
