Lionbridge Reports Q2 Revenue of $119.2 Million, GAAP EPS of $0.04 and Record Non-GAAP EPS of $0.18

Continues Strong Revenue and Profit Momentum with Growing Demand across Verticals and Offerings; Provides Outlook for Positive Second Half 2012

PR Newswire

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX), today announced revenue and earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Financial highlights for the second quarter include:

  • Revenue of $119.2 million, an increase of $5.9 million or 5% compared to the second quarter of 2011. Revenue growth during the quarter came from several large existing accounts and new engagements with clients in life sciences, manufacturing and consumer technology markets.
  • GAAP net income of $2.5 million or $0.04 per share based on 60.4 million weighted average fully diluted common shares outstanding.  Second quarter GAAP net income includes $6.7 million of restructuring expenses, real estate and technology asset impairment charges and acquisition costs.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $11.1 million or $0.18 per share.  This marks a year-on-year increase of $6.8 million or $0.11 per share from the second quarter of 2011 and the strongest non-GAAP earnings in the Company's history.  The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted earnings as net income excluding merger, restructuring and related costs, asset impairment costs, stock-based compensation, and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.  Please see the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the attached table for details and reconciliations of these measures to the comparable GAAP measure.   Excluding an acquisition-related tax benefit of $3.2 million, Q2 non-GAAP earnings were $8.0 million or $0.13 per share.
  • Cash flow from operations of $6.6 million.
  • An ending cash balance of $19.6 million. During the quarter the Company paid down $4.0 million of the $10.0 million debt related to its June 1 acquisition of Productive Resources.

During the quarter Lionbridge closed the acquisition of Indiana-based Productive Resources, LLC (PRI).  Lionbridge expects that PRI's recurring, multi-year contracts with clients in the manufacturing and industrial sectors will augment Lionbridge's end market diversification and address growing demand for integrated solutions that enable organizations to author, illustrate and translate their content and technical documentation.

Also during the quarter, the Company secured several significant new customer engagements, including a sole source agreement with a market leader in generic pharmaceuticals, a multi-year agreement with a hospital logistics provider and new programs with a manufacturer of trucks, buses and diesel engines.   

"We are starting to see the benefits of our new offerings, new strategy and new cost platform.  Our Global Marketing Operations offering is driving new growth opportunities. Our vertical market strategy is allowing us to effectively diversify our client base.  Our SaaS offerings are beginning to scale.  And we are completing the final stages of our previously-announced restructuring program," said Rory Cowan, CEO of Lionbridge.  "With this solid revenue and profit momentum, we expect our ongoing positive financial performance to continue in the second half of 2012 with continued expansion in 2013."

Financial highlights for the first half of 2012 include:

  • Revenue of $231.3 million, an increase of $18.4 million or 9% compared to the first half of 2011.
  • GAAP net income of $4.2 million or $0.07 per share based on 59.9 million weighted average fully diluted common shares outstanding.  This marks an increase of $7.9 million or $0.13 per share year-on-year compared to the first half of 2011. 
  • Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $15.0 million or $0.25 per share, a year-on-year increase of $12.4 million or $0.21 per share from the first half of 2011.  The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted earnings as net income excluding merger, restructuring and related costs, asset impairment costs, stock-based compensation, and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.  Please see the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the attached table for details and reconciliations of these measures to the comparable GAAP measure.  Excluding a PRI acquisition-related tax benefit of $3.2 million, first half non-GAAP earnings were $11.8 million or $0.20 per share.

Lionbridge provided outlook for Q3 of 2012 with expected revenue of $112-115 million, reflecting traditional Q3 seasonality and continued year-on-year growth. The Company also expects continued revenue and earnings growth in Q4. 

Lionbridge management will conduct a conference call at 9:00 a.m. ET this morning to discuss financial performance for the quarter and other matters, including matters related to its future performance. To participate, callers within the United States can dial 800-857-9821 and international callers can dial 210-234-0023.  The pass code for the call is Lionbridge.  The conference call will also be available live via the Internet here.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, the Company's adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations.  These measures are presented because management believes they provide additional information to investors with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities. "Adjusted earnings" and "Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS)" are Non-GAAP financial measures and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance.  Management believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are net income and net income per share and has provided a reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share to net income (loss) at the end of this release.
