UTi Worldwide Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

UTi Worldwide Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — UTi Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ:UTIW) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2016 second quarter ended July 31, 2015.

Edward G. Feitzinger, chief executive officer, said, “We continued to make progress against our four strategic priorities to achieve our long-term goals and improve performance, in spite of unseasonably weak demand in key air and ocean markets this quarter. I am very pleased that we were able to deliver a second consecutive quarter of solid CL&D performance, with year-to-date CL&D results slightly ahead of our internal expectations. We managed our cost structure and pushed productivity improvements throughout the company, especially in freight forwarding. We had one of the strongest working capital performances in the company’s history for a second fiscal quarter and continued to drive improvements in days sales outstanding. We delivered gains in our freight forwarding yields on a sequential basis. Freight forwarding volumes have stabilized sequentially as we have demonstrated improved client retention; however, normal seasonal volume growth did not occur in the second fiscal quarter due to the global macroeconomic slowdown. We do not expect macroeconomic headwinds to abate during the second half of the year, but we do anticipate that our second half volumes and net revenues will benefit from the new client wins we recorded in the first half of the year.”

Financial Results for Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2016

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, revenues decreased 16.5% to $913.9 million, compared to $1,094.1 million for the prior year period, while net revenues decreased 14.0% to $338.5 million, compared to $393.7 million for the prior year period. The decrease in net revenues was primarily related to lower air and ocean volumes in freight forwarding as well as the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the Euro and South African Rand compared to the prior year comparable period. On a constant currency basis, revenues and net revenues were down 8.8% and 5.4%, respectively. As we do every year in the second quarter, we performed an analysis on the value of our goodwill as of July 31, 2015. As a result we determined that an impairment of goodwill had occurred in our freight forwarding segment. Accordingly, we recorded a charge for this impairment of $50.0 million. The operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, inclusive of the goodwill impairment, was $61.2 million compared to operating income of $1.0 million for the prior year comparable period, primarily due to the goodwill impairment and lower freight forwarding net revenues. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding goodwill impairment and severance and other items, as set out in the reconciliation included with this press release (Adjusted EBITDA), for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $11.2 million compared to $23.8 million for the prior year period. Free cash flow (defined as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures) was $60.0 million for the second quarter compared to negative $10.3 million for the prior year period.

Contract Logistics and Distribution

Net revenues for Contract Logistics and Distribution decreased 7.4% to $197.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to $213.6 million in the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, net revenues for Contract Logistics and Distribution increased 1.0%. Operating income was $15.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to $15.6 million for the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, operating income increased 8.8%.

Freight Forwarding

Net revenues for Freight Forwarding decreased 21.8% to $140.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to $180.1 million in the prior year period. On a constant currency basis, net revenues for Freight Forwarding decreased 13.1%. The decrease in net revenues was primarily related to lower air and ocean volumes, which offset significant yield improvement. The operating loss, inclusive of the $50.0 million goodwill impairment, was $59.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to operating income of $6.3 million for the same period last year. The decrease in operating income was primarily related to the goodwill impairment and lower air and ocean volumes.

Richard G. Rodick, chief financial officer, said, “Working capital management and free cash flow improvement were key priorities for us this quarter. Our disciplined actions drove one of the best second quarter free cash flow results in the history of our company. We continue to believe our efficiency initiatives will enable us to achieve our working capital targets for the full fiscal year.”

Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

The Company is updating its guidance for full fiscal year 2016 as follows:

  • The Company continues to anticipate a year-over-year reduction in working capital in the range of $175 million to $200 million for full year fiscal 2016.
  • The Company is committed to its original full year adjusted EBITDA guidance of $125 million to $150 million, but now believes that this will be achieved in the 12 months beginning August 1, 2015 rather than for the full fiscal year 2016 due to macro-economic headwinds and the timing of when we expect to see benefits from new business wins.
  • The Company expects full year fiscal 2016 adjusted EBITDA in the range of $75 million to $100 million.

Edward G. Feitzinger, chief executive officer, commented, “We have made significant progress in a short period of time since our reorganization was announced in late January. We are executing against our working capital and profit improvement initiatives while delivering solid results in our CL&D business. Our team is energized by the momentum we are seeing as well as the shift in our culture instilled by the four strategic priorities of our new playbook. We have narrowed the problem to a volume equation in our freight forwarding business. Although we cannot control the macroeconomic environment, we believe that our forwarding sales efforts have reached an inflection point, and we should start to see the impact in our reported results in the second half of the year.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes “non-GAAP financial measures” within the meaning of the Securities and Exchange Commission rules. UTi believes that meaningful analysis of its financial performance requires an understanding of the factors underlying that performance and short-term patterns and long-term trends may be obscured by the impact of certain items. For this reason, the Company has included information in this press release regarding net revenues (revenues minus purchased transportation costs) and regarding constant currency revenue, net revenue and operating income changes, which are adjusted to exclude the impact of currency fluctuations between comparable periods. In addition, the Company has referred to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), and to adjusted EBITDA, which is EBITDA adjusted to exclude goodwill impairment and severance and other items set out in the reconciliation included with this press release. The Company has also referred to free cash flow, which is cash flow from operations less purchases of property, plant and equipment (net of proceeds from disposals), as well as purchases of software and other intangible assets. This information is among the information the Company uses as a basis for evaluating company performance on a comparable basis over time, allocating resources and planning and forecasting of future periods. The Company has also provided this information because such adjustments make performance information more comparable to prior disclosures for investors, and may enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company’s performance. In addition, the Company’s management believes that presenting adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding underlying business trends and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations. This non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the relevant measures prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP). Further, neither free cash flow, EBITDA nor adjusted EBITDA represent net income or cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, are not derived in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables at the end of this press release.
