LONG BEACH, Calif., March 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UTi Worldwide Inc. (Nasdaq:UTIW) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter ended January 31, 2013.

Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2013 vs. 2012 Results:

  • Revenues were $1,099.3 million, a decrease of 4.7 percent from $1,153.6 million.
  • Net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) were $371.1 million, a decrease of 8.7 percent from $406.5 million.
  • Net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $142.8 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share.
  • Excluding the items described below, non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTi Worldwide Inc. was $13.4 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $14.7 million, or $0.15 per diluted share.
  • Adjustments to GAAP net loss in the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter included after-tax goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and severance costs totaling $95.0 million, or $0.92 per diluted share. In addition, the company increased its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets by $34.5 million, or $0.33 per diluted share.
  • Adjustments to GAAP net income in the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter were comprised of after-tax intangible asset impairment charges, severance and other costs totaling $7.9 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. The company also reduced its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets by $5.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.
  • All references to adjusted items and organic items in this release refer to non-GAAP results. A reconciliation of GAAP to these non-GAAP results is provided in the supplemental financial information attached to this release.

Eric W. Kirchner, chief executive officer, said, "Results in our fiscal 2013 fourth quarter reflect ongoing weakness in the airfreight market and a challenging pricing environment in freight forwarding. In addition, the competitive dynamics in the industry remain the toughest seen in many years. In contract logistics and distribution, we experienced reduced activity at existing locations and made investments to prepare for newly won business. While we secured new business in both segments in the fourth quarter, declines in net revenue from existing accounts more than offset these wins. Clearly these results are not satisfactory. In response, we completed in January and February the previously announced actions necessary to reduce expenses, and we will continue to manage costs throughout fiscal 2014. We also have begun to take steps designed to improve our growth rates, including making changes to our sales organization."

Kirchner continued, "Our comprehensive business process transformation is gathering pace. We accomplished a great deal in fiscal 2013, and we plan to achieve even more this year. We expect to deploy our new freight forwarding operating system in 35 additional countries in fiscal 2014, with more than 70 percent of shipments on the new system by the end of this fiscal year. We believe that progress under our transformation activities should drive annualized gross cost savings of approximately $30-35 million in fiscal 2014 (including expense reductions that were previously announced) and approximately $45-50 million in fiscal 2015. These cost savings are expected to be partially offset by increased amortization and implementation expenses related to the new systems. The macroeconomic and freight environment has pressured margins and impacted profitability to a much greater degree than could have been anticipated at our June 2011 investor day. Because of this pressure, we now expect to reach our operating margin target run-rate later in fiscal 2015 than originally expected."  

Revenues and net revenues decreased 4.7 percent and 8.7 percent, respectively, in the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter compared to the same period last year, primarily due to lower pricing and currency translation. On an organic basis, revenues decreased 3.2 percent, while net revenues declined 6.9 percent in the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter, compared to the same period last year.

Goodwill and intangible asset impairment and severance costs in the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter totaled $99.8 million on a pre-tax basis ($95.0 million after taxes, or $0.92 per diluted share). The total includes two components. First, the company performed an analysis of the value of its goodwill and other intangible assets as of January 31, 2013 based on current business conditions and determined that an impairment of these assets had occurred. The company recorded a non-cash charge for this impairment of $94.7 million ($91.5 million after taxes, or $0.89 per diluted share). Second, the company recorded severance costs of $5.1 million ($3.5 million after taxes, or $0.03 per diluted share), primarily related to transformation activities. In addition, the company increased its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets of $34.5 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, to reflect the unprofitability of certain operations. The increase in allowance was recorded in provision for income taxes.

Intangible asset impairment charges, severance and other costs totaled $10.3 million in the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter on a pre-tax basis, comprising an intangible asset impairment charge of $5.2 million, severance and exit costs of $2.0 million, and an accrual of $3.1 million relating to a legal claim that was settled in fiscal 2013. The company also reduced its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets by $5.6 million.

Operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $478.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Excluding the impact of goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, severance and other items described above, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs were $378.9 million, compared to $374.3 million in the same period last year. On an organic basis, adjusted operating expenses less purchased transportation costs increased 3.0 percent, compared to the same period last year.

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $98.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, comparable to the $96.3 million in the same period last year. Working capital improved significantly in the fourth quarter, but this was largely offset by a decline in profitability in the period.

In January 2013, UTi issued $200 million in senior unsecured guaranteed notes (the 2013 Notes), which consist of $150 million of Senior Unsecured Guaranteed Notes, Series A, due February 1, 2022, and $50 million of Senior Unsecured Guaranteed Notes, Series B, due February 1, 2020. As a result, the company refinanced previously outstanding notes and eliminated scheduled principal payments of $18.3 million that otherwise would have come due in fiscal 2014. The refinancing also has the effect of extending debt maturities and eliminating any principal payments for the next five years.

In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the 2013 Notes was used to prepay another series of previously outstanding notes. The company recorded additional interest of $2.1 million related to the prepayment. More information on the 2013 Notes and the refinancing can be found in the company's Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 31, 2013.

Kirchner concluded, "We have accomplished a great deal that is not reflected in our financial results. We launched our freight forwarding system in six countries and deployed Oracle financials in 15 countries. We have made further improvements to our operating processes, launched new products and deployed a new human resources information system globally, among other activities. The year ahead is even more important, with much work to be done. We have made positive changes to our organizational structure, including those to sales that are necessary to improve our growth. Our transformation is moving forward aggressively and expected to drive increased cost savings this year. We have built a plan that is expected to get us on a path to improved profitability in fiscal 2014. We are not anticipating help from the market, but we are executing on the things we can control – profitable growth, significant progress under our comprehensive business process transformation and cost management."
