Charles River Associates (CRA) Reports Results for the Second Quarter of 2017

Strength Across Portfolio Drives Growth in Revenue and Profits;

Headcount Increases by 22% Year Over Year With Companywide Utilization of 76%;

Revenue Guidance Is Increased for Fiscal 2017

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 27, 2017-- Charles River Associates (NASDAQ: CRAI), a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial and management consulting services, today announced financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended July 1, 2017.

Key Second-Quarter Fiscal 2017 Highlights

  • Second-quarter fiscal 2017 utilization equaled 76% as headcount increased by 107, or 21.7%, year over year.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP revenue grew 13.3% and 13.4%, respectively, year over year to $93.6 million. On a constant currency basis relative to the second quarter of fiscal 2016 (“Q2 2016 constant currency basis”), GAAP and non-GAAP revenue would have increased by an additional $1.8 million, resulting in year-over-year revenue growth of 15.4% and 15.6%, respectively.
  • GAAP and non-GAAP net income were $3.8 million or 4.1% of revenue, and $4.1 million or 4.4% of revenue, respectively. GAAP net income declined 26.9% year over year, primarily as a result of the after-tax gain of $2.1 million from the sale of GNU’s assets recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2016; non-GAAP net income increased 17.9% year over year. On a Q2 2016 constant currency basis, GAAP and non-GAAP net income would have increased by an additional $0.2 million, resulting in year-over-year changes in GAAP and non-GAAP net income of -23.0% and +23.6%, respectively.
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share was $0.44, a decline of 25.4% year over year, primarily as a result of the after-tax gain on sale in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 noted above; non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 20.0% year over year to $0.48. On a Q2 2016 constant currency basis, GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share would have increased by an additional $0.02 per diluted share, to $0.46 and $0.50, respectively, resulting in year-over-year changes in GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of -22.0% and +25.0%, respectively.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA grew 7.3% year over year to $15.4 million, or 16.4% of non-GAAP revenue, compared with $14.3 million, or 17.3% of non-GAAP revenue, for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. On a Q2 2016 constant currency basis, non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA would have increased by an additional $0.4 million, resulting in year-over-year non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA growth of 10.1%.
  • During the second quarter of fiscal 2017, CRA returned $14.7 million of capital to its shareholders, comprised of $1.2 million of dividend payments and $13.5 million for share repurchases of approximately 389,000 shares.

Management Commentary

“Our results reflect continued strength across our portfolio and the successful execution of our strategy to generate broad-based, profitable growth,” said Paul Maleh, CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “For the second quarter of fiscal 2017, we increased non-GAAP revenue by 13.4% to $93.6 million and delivered non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin of 16.4%.”

“Our performance was driven by double-digit revenue growth year over year in our Energy, Forensic Services, Life Sciences and Marakon Practices, as well as solid contributions by our Antitrust & Competition Economics practice,” Maleh said. “This performance is especially notable given that these practices represent more than 75% of CRA’s second quarter revenue. As another example of the strength across our portfolio, on a Q2 2016 constant currency basis, our international operations grew in the second quarter by 8.9% year over year.”

“Within Life Sciences, C1 Consulting has been a wonderful addition, both in terms of the quality of our new colleagues and the strength of their client relationships. Our legacy Life Sciences practice also enjoyed a successful second quarter, building on its core services while leveraging the new capabilities of our C1 colleagues,” Maleh continued.

Outlook and Financial Guidance

“We are increasing our fiscal 2017 revenue expectations to reflect our strong performance in the first half of the year,” Maleh said. “To summarize, year-to-date non-GAAP revenue on a constant currency basis relative to the first half of fiscal 2016 is $185.6 million, including a $3.9 million adjustment for currency headwinds. Similarly, year-to-date non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is $30.1 million, including a $0.9 million adjustment for currency headwinds, or 16.2% of non-GAAP revenue on a constant currency basis.” On a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2016, CRA is increasing its previous fiscal 2017 guidance for non-GAAP revenue to the range of $360 million to $370 million, and reaffirming non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin in the range of 15.8% to 16.6%.

“While we are encouraged by our performance in the first half of 2017, we remain mindful that uncertainties around global economic conditions and short-term challenges arising from the integration of incoming consultants could adversely affect our business in the quarters ahead,” Maleh concluded.

CRA does not provide reconciliations of its annual 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.

Quarterly Dividend

CRA’s Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.14 per common share, payable on September 15, 2017 to shareholders of record as of August 29, 2017. 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.

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. CRA also uses these non-GAAP measures in its budgeting process, and as performance criteria for some of its performance-based compensation. 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 second quarter of fiscal 2017, and the year-to-date period ended as of the second quarter of fiscal 2017, CRA has excluded GNU’s results, impairments on certain intangible assets, and the revaluation changes of contingent consideration liabilities associated with prior acquisitions, and for the full-year fiscal 2017 guidance, the second quarter of fiscal 2016, and the year-to-date period ended as of the second quarter of fiscal 2016, CRA has excluded GNU’s results. Also, in calculating “Adjusted EBITDA” from net income (loss) attributable to CRA for these fiscal periods and for purposes of the full-year fiscal 2017 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; goodwill impairment charges; 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, earnings per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 on a constant currency basis relative to the second quarter of fiscal 2016, and its guidance for full-year fiscal 2017 non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA margin on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2016.

SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT

Statements in this press release concerning our future business, operating results and financial condition, including those concerning guidance on future non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin, growth of our consulting team, our capitalizing on the demand for our services, the implied continuation of any current strategy, expectation or trend, or our expectations regarding the payment of future quarterly dividends, and statements using the terms “expect,” “encouraged,” 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 2017 on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2016 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 inability to integrate and utilize existing consultants and personnel; the decline or reduction in project work or activity; 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.
