Blackstone Reportedly Makes An Offer For Serco

The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX) has made a surprise offer to buy back Serco Group plc (LSE:SRP) (formerly Intelenet) as formal bids were fired last week for the asset put on the block, people familiar with the matter said. Blackstone and The Carlyle Group LP (NasdaqGS:CG) are said to be strong contenders even though other financial investors and strategic bidders like Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated (NasdaqGS:SYKE) and Teleperformance S.A. (ENXTPA:RCF) have fielded offers. Barclays PLC (LSE:BARC) could potentially partner with Blackstone to reclaim Intelenet, sources said. Serco, which has mandated Citigroup to run the sale process, is evaluating the offers currently.

For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $349.9 million increased $14.6 million, or 4.3%, from $335.3 million in the comparable quarter last year, driven largely by the expansion of existing and some new client programs across the communications, technology and healthcare verticals, more than offsetting mixed demand within the financial services and transportation and leisure verticals; on a constant currency basis, fourth quarter 2014 revenues increased 7.6% comparably. Income from operations was $32.558 million against $19.254 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $31.102 million against $17.978 million a year ago.

For the year, the company reported revenues of $1,327.5 million increased $64.1 million, or 5.1%, from 2013, driven largely by the expansion of existing and new client programs across the communications and technology verticals, all of which more than offset mixed demand softness in the financial services, healthcare and transportation and leisure verticals. On a constant currency basis, 2014 revenues increased 7.2% comparably. Income from operations was $79.555 million against $53.527 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $77.159 million against $51.325 million a year ago. Net income was $57.791 million or $1.35 per diluted share against $37.260 million or $0.87 per diluted share a year ago.

For the first quarter ending March 31, 2015, the company anticipates the revenues in the range of $315.0 million to $320.0 million. Effective tax rate of approximately 27%; on a non-GAAP basis, an effective tax rate of approximately 28%. Diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.27 to $0.30. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.33 to $0.36. Capital expenditures in the range of $14.0 million to $16.0 million. The Company anticipates net interest expense of approximately $0.7 million for the first quarter of 2015. For the year ending December 31, 2015, the company anticipates revenues in the range of $1,300.0 million to $1,320.0 million.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.56 to $1.68. Capital expenditures in the range of $55.0 million to $60.0 million. The Company anticipates net interest expense of approximately $2.8 million for the full year 2015. These amounts exclude the potential impact of any future foreign exchange gains or losses in other expense; and the company anticipates a slightly higher effective tax rate for full-year 2015 versus 2014 with the effective tax rate differential driven chiefly by a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to higher tax rate jurisdictions.
