Charles River Associates (CRA) Reports Results for the Third Quarter of 2016

CRA Drives Revenue and Profitability While Delivering 7% Headcount Growth

Company Initiates Quarterly Cash Dividend

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 27, 2016-- Charles River Associates (NASDAQ: CRAI), a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial, and management consulting services, today announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended October 1, 2016 and the initiation of a quarterly cash dividend.

Key Financial Results

  • Revenue up 6.8% year over year to $81.7 million; non-GAAP revenue up 8.2% year over year to $81.7 million.
  • Net income up 11.6% year over year to $3.2 million; non-GAAP net income up 11.2% year over year to $3.2 million.
  • Earnings per diluted share increased 22.6% year over year to $0.38; non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 21.9% year over year to $0.39.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA grew 16.7% year over year to $13.8 million.
  • On a constant currency basis relative to the third quarter of fiscal 2015, GAAP and non-GAAP revenue would have increased by approximately $2.2 million, resulting in year-over-year growth of 9.6% and 11.2%, respectively, whereas foreign currency headwinds had a de minimis impact on GAAP and non-GAAP net income, earnings per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA.
  • On October 26, 2016, CRA’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.14 per common share, payable on December 16, 2016 to shareholders of record as of November 20, 2016. The Company expects to continue paying quarterly dividends, the declaration, timing and amounts of which remain subject to the discretion of CRA’s Board of Directors.

Management Commentary

“Consistent with the first half of the year, CRA delivered strong financial results in the third quarter of fiscal 2016,” said Paul Maleh, CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Continued broad-based demand for our services provided CRA the opportunity to welcome more than 70 new colleagues, increasing quarter-end headcount by 7% compared with a year ago, while also achieving companywide quarterly utilization of 73%. We grew non-GAAP revenue by 8.2% to $81.7 million with double-digit revenue growth year over year in Energy; Finance, including legacy operations and our new colleagues in Forensic & Cyber Investigations; Labor & Employment; Life Sciences; and Marakon. International operations experienced more than 20% revenue growth year over year, led by our Antitrust & Competition Economics, Life Sciences, and Marakon practices, which would have been even stronger if adjusted for foreign currency headwinds.”

“Given the strength of our firm and its ability to generate strong cash flows, we can both invest in the business and return capital to shareholders,” said Maleh. “Our profitable growth and the initiation of a quarterly dividend, combined with our stock repurchase activity, demonstrate CRA’s continued commitment to deliver value to shareholders. During the third quarter, we repurchased approximately 111,000 shares of common stock for $2.9 million, bringing our year-to-date repurchases to approximately 784,000 shares for $19.1 million lowering our shares outstanding by 7.4% to 8.2 million shares.”

Outlook and Financial Guidance

“Looking ahead, we are positioned to build on the strong momentum seen year to date across our portfolio,” Maleh said. “On a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2015, we expect to exceed our previously announced fiscal 2016 guidance for non-GAAP revenue of $312 million to $322 million and to be in the upper half of our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin range of 15.8% to 16.6%. While we are encouraged by CRA’s solid performance through the first three quarters of fiscal 2016, we remain mindful of short-term challenges arising from the integration of newly hired professionals, the potential impact of seasonality, and uncertainties around global economic conditions.”

CRA does not provide reconciliations of its non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA margin guidance to the GAAP comparable financial measures because CRA is unable to estimate with reasonable certainty the financial results of its former NeuCo subsidiary, now known as GNU123 Liquidating Corporation (“GNU”), the timing and amount of forgivable loans issued for talent acquisition, share-based compensation expense, unusual gains or charges, foreign exchange rates, and the resulting effect of these items on CRA’s taxes without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and may have a material effect on CRA’s results computed in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between the historical GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release is provided in the financial tables at the end of this release, and further information regarding the non-GAAP measures presented in this release is provided below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to reporting its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, CRA has also provided in this release non-GAAP financial information. CRA believes that the use of non-GAAP measures in addition to GAAP measures is a useful method of evaluating its results of operations. CRA believes that presenting its financial results excluding the results of GNU, certain non-cash and/or non-recurring charges, and the other items identified below, and including presentations of Adjusted EBITDA and comparisons on a constant currency basis, are important to investors and management because they are more indicative of CRA’s ongoing operating results and financial condition. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with, but not as a substitute for, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and the results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by CRA may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Specifically, for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the year-to-date period ended as of the third quarter of fiscal 2016, and its full 2016 fiscal year guidance, CRA has excluded GNU’s results, and for the year-to-date period ended as of the third quarter of 2015, CRA has excluded GNU’s results and a non-cash charge relating to an increased liability for a future contingent consideration payment relating to a prior acquisition. Also, in calculating “Adjusted EBITDA” from net income (loss) attributable to CRA for these fiscal periods and for purposes of the full 2016 fiscal year guidance for Adjusted EBITDA margin, CRA has excluded net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests (net of tax), interest expense, net; provision for income taxes, other income (expense), net; and the following non-cash expenses: depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expenses, and amortization of forgivable loans.

Finally, CRA believes that fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can significantly affect its financial results. Therefore, CRA provides a constant currency presentation to supplement disclosures regarding its results of operations and performance. CRA calculates constant currency amounts by converting its applicable fiscal period local currency financial results using the prior fiscal year’s corresponding period exchange rates. CRA has presented in this press release its GAAP and non-GAAP revenue, net income, and earnings per diluted share, and its Adjusted EBITDA, for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 on a constant currency basis relative to the third quarter of fiscal 2015, and its guidance for fiscal 2016 non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA margin on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2015.

SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT

Statements in this press release concerning our future business, operating results and financial condition, including guidance on future non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin, and statements regarding undeclared dividend payments, our ability and commitment to invest in our business while returning capital to shareholders, the continuation of the current strength of our business, the demand for our services, or our ability to generate cash flows, and statements using the terms “looking ahead,” “expect,” “believe,” “can,” “positioned,” “should,” or similar expressions, are “forward-looking” statements as defined in Section 21 of the Exchange Act. These statements are based upon our current expectations and various underlying assumptions. Although we believe there is a reasonable basis for these statements and assumptions, and these statements are expressed in good faith, these statements are subject to a number of additional factors and uncertainties. Our actual non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin in fiscal 2016 on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2015 could differ materially from the guidance presented herein, and our actual performance and results may differ materially from the performance and results contained or implied by the other forward-looking statements made herein, due to many important factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, the possibility that the demand for our services may decline as a result of changes in general and industry specific economic conditions, the timing of engagements for our services, the effects of competitive services and pricing, our ability to attract and retain key employee or non-employee experts; the impact of a quarterly dividend and/or the failure to declare future dividends; the inability to integrate and utilize existing consultants and personnel; global economic conditions including less stable political and economic environments; foreign exchange rate fluctuations; unanticipated expenses and liabilities; risks inherent in international operations; changes in accounting standards, rules, and regulations; our ability to collect on forgivable loans should any become due; and professional and other legal liability. Additional risks and uncertainties are discussed in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the heading “Risk Factors.” The inclusion of such forward-looking information should not be regarded as our representation that the future events, plans, or expectations contemplated will be achieved. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date of this press release, and we do not intend to do so.
