“We continued to deliver constant currency gross margin growth in key markets and practices in the third quarter, including Asia Pacific and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). We are narrowing the gap toward profitability and expect to deliver positive adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter,” said Stephen Nolan, chief executive officer at Hudson. “Our focus remains on driving growth in our core markets through selective investments in fee earners, while reducing costs.”

Strategic Actions

The company continued to execute on strategic actions in its previously announced efforts to focus on its core business lines and growth opportunities. During the second quarter, these actions included the divestiture of the company’s Netherlands business as well as its Americas IT business. The company also exited its operations in Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Luxembourg.  In the third quarter, the company substantially completed the reduction in stranded support costs in the Americas following the exit of the Legal eDiscovery and IT businesses. With these strategic divestitures complete, the company is now a more streamlined organization that is focused on delivering sustainable profitability in its core businesses — RPO, Talent Management and Recruitment — where it continues to invest in fee earners to drive growth.

During the third quarter, the company incurred $2.3 million in restructuring charges primarily for real estate actions in all regions.

Share Repurchase Program

During the third quarter, the company commenced a share repurchase program for up to $10 million of the company’s common stock. The company purchased 262,260 shares for $0.7 million as part of the buyback program during the third quarter and an additional 57,908 shares for $0.1 million during October.

Regional Highlights

Americas

In the third quarter, Hudson Americas’ gross margin decreased 43 percent in constant currency on a reported basis and was flat on a retained** basis as compared with the third quarter in 2014. After multiple quarters of strong growth in RPO, gross margin overall was flat in the third quarter as growth with new and existing clients was offset by the end of a large contract in 2014.  The reduction in stranded support costs following the sale of the Americas Legal eDiscovery and IT businesses was substantially completed by the end of the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $0.3 million, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million for the same period a year ago.

Asia Pacific

Hudson Asia Pacific’s gross margin increased 13 percent in constant currency in the third quarter of 2015 from the same period in 2014. This was the seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year constant currency gross margin growth. Results were fueled by permanent recruitment, up 20 percent, and temporary contracting, up 8 percent, against the third quarter of 2014. This growth in recruitment helped drive overall growth in both of the company’s major Asia Pacific markets, China and Australia, with gross margin increasing 39 percent and 9 percent, respectively, against the prior year period.  RPO increased 14 percent from the prior year period, driven by growth in China. Asia Pacific delivered adjusted EBITDA of $2.3 million, or 4.2 percent of revenue, improving from adjusted EBITDA of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Europe

Hudson Europe’s gross margin decreased 17 percent in constant currency from the third quarter of 2014 on a reported basis, and 7 percent on a retained** basis. Excluding the impact of the Netherlands sale, Continental Europe gross margin increased by 5 percent in constant currency in the quarter. Belgium and Spain continued to deliver gross margin growth, up 11 percent and 26 percent respectively. In the UK, 18 percent growth in RPO was offset by 20 percent declines in recruitment. Adjusted EBITDA of $0.1 million, or 0.3 percent of revenue, improved from a loss of $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The company ended the third quarter of 2015 with $55.0 million in liquidity, composed of $36.4 million in cash and $18.6 million in availability under its credit facilities. This compares with $34.8 million in cash and $22.3 million in availability under its credit facilities at the end of the second quarter of 2015. The company generated $4.8 million in cash flow from operations during the third quarter, compared with $2.4 million use of cash in the third quarter of 2014. The company had $34 thousand in outstanding borrowings at the end of the third quarter of 2015. 

Business Outlook

Given current economic conditions, the company expects fourth quarter 2015 revenue of between $100 million and $110 million and adjusted EBITDA of between breakeven and $1.5 million at prevailing exchange rates.  This outlook assumes an average exchange rate of 1.54 US Dollars to the British Pound, 1.10 US Dollars to the Euro and 0.68 US Dollars to the Australian Dollar. In the fourth quarter of 2014, revenue was $136.7 million and adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $2.4 million.  Fourth quarter 2014 revenue would have been $33 million lower including the impact of prevailing exchange rates cited above and excluding revenue attributable to businesses divested in the second quarter of 2015.

Management also uses these measurements to evaluate capital needs and working capital requirements. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, cash flows from operating activities, and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or as a measure of the company’s profitability or liquidity. Furthermore, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as presented above may not be comparable with similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

HUDSON GLOBAL, INC.
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.

(1) Retained revenue and gross margin and divested revenue and gross margin are non-GAAP terms that management believes provide a better understanding of the underlying revenue and gross margin trends in the business following the divestitures in the second quarter of 2015. Divested revenue and gross margin includes such items attributable to the following businesses: the Americas IT staffing business, the Netherlands business, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Luxembourg. The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, Hudson’s financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. The above table provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure used in its financial reporting to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
