Hudson Global, Inc.: Hudson Global Reports 2014 Second Quarter Results

    Hudson Global, Inc.: Hudson Global Reports 2014 Second Quarter Results                       Highest Gross Margin in Six Quarters  Progress on Strategic Actions to Focus on Core Business and Improve Efficiency  NEW YORK, July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hudson Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:HSON), a leading global talent solutions company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.  2014 Second Quarter Summary    *Revenue of $167.4 million, down 2.3 percent from the second quarter of     2013, or 4.4 percent in constant currency.   *Gross margin of $62.8 million, an increase of 3.8 percent from the second     quarter of 2013, or 1.9 percent in constant currency. This quarter's gross     margin was the highest dollar level achieved by the company since the     fourth quarter of 2012.   *Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $0.8 million, an improvement of 68.2 percent or     63.9 percent in constant currency, as compared with a loss of $2.5 million     in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA included $1.3 million of     charges related to the proxy contest and strategic actions.   *Adjusted EBITDA* loss of $2.9 million in the first half of 2014, as     compared with a loss of $7.4 million in the first half of 2013, an     improvement of 61.3 percent or 59.2 percent in constant currency.   *Restructuring charges of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, as     compared with $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2013.   *Net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, as     compared with net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.18 per basic and diluted     share in the same period last year.    * Adjusted EBITDA is defined in the segment tables at the end of this   release.  Year-over-year gross margin growth in the company's core business lines and geographies was widespread, including 4 percent in Asia Pacific, 9 percent in Europe, and 50 percent in RPO in the Americas, all in constant currency. This growth more than offset the decline in our eDiscovery unit in the Americas.  "We delivered gross margin growth in our major markets and continued to make substantial improvements to our bottom line," said Manolo Marquez, chairman and chief executive officer at Hudson. "Our second quarter results are a clear indication that the changes we have put in place are translating to growth and improved financial performance, and will accelerate our path to sustained profitability."  Stephen Nolan, chief financial officer at Hudson said, "Our focus on disciplined execution, strategic investments, and business efficiencies have resulted in improved performance across most markets and practices."  Strategic Actions  As was previously announced, the company engaged Duff & Phelps to begin exploring opportunities to divest the Legal eDiscovery business, and focus on the company's core businesses that are expected to maximize stockholder value. On July 29, 2014, the company's management and board of directors approved the plan for divestiture of the Legal eDiscovery business, which is expected to be completed within 12 months.  In addition, the company engaged AlixPartners, LLP, a premier consulting firm in the areas of organization design and operational improvement, to assist management in a comprehensive assessment of the company's organization and operations. The engagement with AlixPartners was focused on identifying opportunities to better align the organization model to a more focused business after the divestiture of eDiscovery, to support future growth in core areas, and improve operating efficiencies and effectiveness. Based upon this work, management recommended and the board of directors approved on July 29, 2014 actions including the optimization of real estate and integration of support services and systems at the regional and corporate level. These initiatives are expected to result in a restructuring charge of up to $7 million which is expected to be taken over the next twelve months, depending on the timing of other strategic actions such as the sale of the company's eDiscovery business. The company expects an ongoing annualized return of 1.5 - 2.0x the charge.  Regional Highlights  Americas  Americas' gross margin decreased 24 percent in the second quarter as compared with the same period in 2013. RPO continued to deliver strong results with 50 percent gross margin growth in the second quarter, after becoming the largest practice in the Americas on a gross margin basis in the first quarter of 2014. This growth was offset by declines in Legal eDiscovery and IT of 45 percent and 19 percent, respectively. The quarterly decline in Gross Margin, combined with an unusually significant increase in medical costs, resulted in an adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.1 million for the second quarter, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 million, or 4.1 percent of revenue for the same quarter a year ago.  Asia Pacific  Asia Pacific's gross margin increased 4 percent in constant currency in the second quarter as compared with the same period in 2013. This was the second consecutive quarter of year-over-year gross margin growth, with all business lines contributing in both quarters. More specifically, growth in the region was driven by strength in talent management and permanent recruitment in China, and Australia. Gross margin increased 30 percent in China in the quarter against the prior year. And in Australia, gross margin increased 6 percent, outperforming the company's major competitors. Talent management delivered 19 percent growth in Asia Pacific, led by large assessment and career transition projects in Australia. A concerted effort to increase front office staff in its highest potential markets and practices in Asia Pacific resulted in a 28 percent increase in fee-earners in the quarter as compared to prior year. The company expects further growth and market share gains in the region as the productivity of these new fee-earners increases. Cost reductions in support areas and real estate, together with top-line growth generated adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million, or 1.5 percent of revenue, as compared to $0.7 million, or 1.1 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2013.  Europe  Europe's gross margin increased 9 percent in constant currency compared with the second quarter of 2013. Against prior year, the region experienced gross margin growth in most countries. Particularly strong growth occurred in permanent recruitment in the UK and Belgium, up 18 percent and 27 percent in constant currency, respectively. Talent management in Continental Europe also grew in the quarter driven by Belgium and France, with gross margin up 7 percent compared with the prior year. Europe delivered adjusted EBITDA of $3.2 million, or 4.2 percent of revenue, as compared with adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million, or 0.1 percent of revenue for the quarter a year ago.  Liquidity and Capital Resources  The company ended the second quarter of 2014 with $51.9 million in liquidity, composed of $17.9 million in cash and $34.1 million in availability under its credit facilities. This included $13.1 million of availability from the RBS facility, which will expire on August 4, 2014 and which the company expects to replace with separate facilities for the US and UK prior to such expiration date. This compares with $22.1 million in cash and $35.8 million in availability under its credit facilities at the end of the first quarter of 2014, and $28.3 million in cash and $35.8 million in availability under its credit facilities at the end of the second quarter of 2013. The company used $4.6 million in cash flow from operations during the quarter, and had $2.2 million in outstanding borrowings at the end of the second quarter.  Business Outlook  Given current economic conditions, the company expects third quarter 2014 revenue of between $165 million and $175 million and adjusted EBITDA of between negative $2 million and breakeven at prevailing exchange rates. In the third quarter of 2013, revenue was $163.6 million and adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $2.9 million.

RECONCILIATION FOR CONSTANT CURRENCY                           (in thousands) (unaudited)                                                                The company operates on a global basis, with the majority of its gross margin generated outside of the United States. Accordingly, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect its results of operations. Constant currency information compares financial results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. The company currently defines the term "constant currency" to mean that financial data for a previously reported period are translated into U.S. dollars using the same foreign currency exchange rates that were used to translate financial data for the current period.Changes in revenue, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A"), business reorganization expenses and other non-operating income (expense), operating income (loss) and EBITDA (loss) include the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Variance analysis usually describes period-to-period variances that are calculated using constant currency as a percentage. The company's management reviews and analyzes business results in constant currency and believes these results better represent the company's underlying business trends. The company believes that these calculations are a useful measure, indicating the actual change in operations. There are no significant gains or losses on foreign currency transactions between subsidiaries. Therefore, changes in foreign currency exchange rates generally impact only reported earnings.
