08/03/2015

-- Continued agent productivity gains drive second quarter 2015 financial results above previously provided business outlook ranges

--Updating full-year 2015 business outlook

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated ("SYKES" or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:SYKE), a global leader in providing comprehensive outsourced customer contact management solutions and services in the business process outsourcing (BPO) arena, announced today its financial results for the second-quarter ended June 30, 2015. 

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • Second quarter 2015 revenues of $307.5 million decreased $13.0 million, or 4.1%, from $320.5 million in the comparable quarter last year, driven chiefly by unfavorable foreign exchange rates as the functional currencies of the Company’s various international operations weakened relative to the U.S. dollar on a comparable basis; on a constant currency basis, second quarter 2015 revenues increased 1.1% comparably, with the increased demand led by the technology vertical
     
  • Second quarter 2015 operating margin was 5.9% versus 3.3% in the same period last year; on a non-GAAP basis (see section titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for an explanation and see Exhibit 6 for reconciliation), second quarter 2015 operating margin increased to 7.1% versus 4.7% in the same period last year, with the comparable margin increase primarily driven largely by higher agent productivity gains and sustained improvement in capacity utilization, coupled with a favorable foreign exchange impact (approximately 80 basis points); the year-ago period’s margin, however, was somewhat constrained by costs related to demand, which materialized later than anticipated, as well as the cost impact of a financial services program ramp down due partly to regulatory changes in a client’s industry
     
  • Second quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share were $0.31 versus $0.19 in the comparable quarter last year, with the 63.2% increase due largely to the above-mentioned factors
     
  • On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share increased to $0.36 from $0.27 in the same period last year (see Exhibit 6 for reconciliation), with the comparable 33.3% increase driven largely by the previously-mentioned factors. Second quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share were also higher relative to the Company’s May 2015 business outlook range of $0.24 to $0.27, also driven largely by the previously-mentioned factors coupled with a lower effective tax rate relative to the May 2015 business outlook
     
  • Consolidated capacity utilization rate increased slightly to 80% in the second quarter of 2015 from 79% in the comparable period last year, due to a reduction in capacity


Americas Region

Revenues  from the Company’s Americas region, including operations in North America and offshore (Latin America, South Asia and the Asia Pacific region), decreased 2.7% to $249.7 million, or 81.2% of total revenues, for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $256.7 million, or 80.1% of total revenues, in the same prior year period. On a constant currency basis, second quarter 2015 Americas revenues decreased 1.1% comparably, moderated by certain clients within the communications as discussed in the Company’s May 2015 business outlook, as well as clients within the financial services and transportation and leisure verticals.

Sequentially, revenues generated from the Americas region decreased 5.5% to $249.7 million from $264.2 million, or 81.6% of total revenues, in the first quarter of 2015. On a constant currency basis, second quarter 2015 Americas revenues decreased 5.6% over first quarter due to seasonality and demand moderation with certain clients as discussed in the May 2015 business outlook.

The Americas income for the second quarter of 2015 increased 35.7% to $28.7 million, with an operating margin of 11.5% versus 8.2% in the comparable quarter last year. On a non-GAAP basis, the Americas operating margin increased to 13.0% from 9.8% in the comparable quarter last year, driven by agent productivity gains and improved capacity utilization, coupled with favorable foreign exchange impact (approximately 110 basis points) (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Sequentially, the Americas income for the second quarter of 2015 decreased 11.9% to $28.7 million, with an operating margin of 11.5% versus 12.3% in the first quarter of 2015.  On a non-GAAP basis, the Americas operating margin was 13.0% versus 13.7% in the first quarter of 2015, with the decrease driven by a combination of seasonality and demand moderation with certain clients as discussed in our May 2015 business outlook. (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

EMEA Region
Revenues from the Company’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region decreased 9.5% to $57.8 million, representing 18.8% of total revenues, for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $63.8 million, or 19.9% of total revenues, in the same prior year period. On a constant currency basis, EMEA revenues increased 10.0% on a comparable basis driven by the communications, technology and transportation and leisure verticals.

Sequentially, revenues from the Company’s EMEA region decreased 2.9% to $57.8 million, or 18.8% of total revenues, versus $59.5 million, or 18.4% of total revenues, in the first quarter of 2015.  On a constant currency basis, EMEA revenues decreased 2.2% sequentially due to fewer work days in the second quarter compared to the first quarter.

The EMEA region’s income for the second quarter of 2015 was $3.0 million, with an operating margin of 5.1% versus 2.4% in the comparable quarter last year.  On a non-GAAP basis, the operating margin was 5.1% versus 2.2% in the same period last year, with the margin increase driven by a combination of higher demand and productivity improvements (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Sequentially, the EMEA region’s income for the second quarter of 2015 was $3.0 million, or 5.1% of EMEA revenues, versus $3.8 million, or 6.4% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2015. On a non-GAAP basis, the EMEA operating margin was 5.1% versus 6.4% in the first quarter of 2015 due to fewer workdays and higher employee costs in the form of overtime pay for public holidays in certain countries (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Other G&A Expenses
Other G&A expenses, which includes corporate and other costs, increased to $13.4 million, or 4.4% of total revenues, in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $12.3 million, or 3.8% of total revenues in the prior year period. On a non-GAAP basis, other G&A expenses increased to 4.4% of total revenues from 3.6% in the prior year period due to a combination of expenses related to increased incentive compensation, as well as higher travel and consulting costs (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Sequentially, other G&A expenses decreased to $13.4 million from $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2015, however, as a percent of total revenues increased slightly to 4.4% of revenues in the second quarter of 2015 from 4.3% in the first quarter of 2015 on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Other Income (Expense) and Taxes
Total other income (expense), net for the second quarter of 2015 was roughly flat, totaling $0.6 million compared to $0.7 million for the same period in the prior year.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 26.6% for the second quarter of 2015 versus 14.2% in the same period last year and slightly below the estimated 27% provided in the Company’s May 2015 business outlook. The effective tax rate differential on a comparable basis was primarily due to a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to higher tax rate jurisdictions.

On a non-GAAP basis, the second quarter 2015 effective tax rate was 28.1% compared to 20.7% in the same period last year and below the estimated 30% provided in the Company’s May 2015 business outlook (see Exhibit 11 for reconciliation). The effective tax rate differential on a comparable basis was due to the aforementioned factor.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company’s balance sheet at June 30, 2015 remained strong with cash and cash equivalents of $222.4 million, of which approximately 90.8%, or $201.9 million, was held in international operations and is deemed to be indefinitely reinvested offshore. In the second quarter of 2015, net cash provided by operating activities was up 22.8% to $28.5 million, driven mostly by higher net income and changes in operating assets and liabilities. At quarter end, the Company had $65.0 million in borrowings outstanding, with $375.0 million available under its new $440.0 million credit facility dated May 12, 2015.

Business Outlook

The assumptions driving the business outlook for the third quarter and full-year 2015 are as follows:

  • The Company is updating its full-year 2015 business outlook. Given the better-than-expected financial results for the second quarter, the Company is increasing the bottom end of its revenue range for 2015 (to between $1,275.0 million and $1,285.0 million from between $1,270.0 million and $1,285.0 million previously). In addition, the Company is also raising both the bottom and top-end of its full-year diluted earnings per share ranges (to between $1.57 and $1.63 from between $1.54 and $1.62 previously) even as it absorbs the cost of investments for an incremental 1,700 gross seats, doubling the initial 1,700 gross seat additions planned for 2015 and bringing the total gross seat additions for 2015 at 3,400. The incremental seat addition is being driven by higher demand mainly from certain financial services clients. The investments associated with the incremental capacity additions and the related ramps are expected to impact diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.09 for the second half of 2015. Yet despite these incremental investments, the Company’s implied operating margin expectations for full-year 2015 remains unchanged;
     
  • The Company added roughly 400 seats on a gross basis in the second quarter, in addition to the 400 already added in first quarter of 2015. The net seat count, however, is down by approximately 800 for the first six months of 2015. With the incremental seat additions as discussed above, on top of those slated previously, the Company now expects to end 2015 with a net increase in seats of 1,700 relative to year-end 2014 versus initial plans of a flat seat count;
     
  • The Company’s revenues and earnings per share assumptions for the third quarter and full year 2015 are based on foreign exchange rates as of July 2015.  Therefore, the continued volatility in foreign exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the functional currencies of the markets the Company serves could have a further impact, positive or negative, on revenues and both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share relative to the business outlook for the third quarter and full-year as discussed above;        
  • The Company anticipates total other interest income (expense), net of approximately $0.8 million for the third quarter and $3.2 million for the full year 2015. These amounts exclude the potential impact of any future foreign exchange gains or losses in other income (expense); and
     
  • The Company anticipates a slightly higher effective tax rate for full-year 2015 relative to the business outlook provided in May, driven chiefly by a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to higher tax rate jurisdictions.

            
Considering the above factors, the Company anticipates the following financial results for the three months ending September 30, 2015:              

  • Revenues in the range of $315.0 million to $320.0 million
  • Effective tax rate of approximately 29.0%; **on a non-GAAP basis, an effective tax rate of approximately 30.0%
  • Fully diluted share count of approximately 42.2 million 
  • Diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.29 to $0.32
  • **Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.34 to $0.37
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $25.0 million to $28.0 million    

For the twelve months ending December 31, 2015, the Company anticipates the following financial results:  

  • Revenues in the range of $1,275.0 million to $1,285.0 million
  • Effective tax rate of approximately 27.0%; **on a non-GAAP basis, an effective tax rate of approximately 28.0%
  • Fully diluted share count of approximately 42.6 million 
  • Diluted earnings per share of approximately $1.35 to $1.41
  • **Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.57 to $1.63
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $60.0 million to $65.0 million    


** See exhibits 10 & 11 for third quarter and full-year 2015 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and tax rate reconciliations.

Strategic Acquisition of Qelp
In the third quarter, the Company acquired Netherlands-based Qelp to further broaden and strengthen its service portfolio around digital customer support & extend its reach into adjacent, but complementary, markets. The initial purchase price of this all-cash acquisition is EUR 8.9 million, exclusive of the contingent consideration. Qelp generated revenues of EUR 4.1 million, or U.S. $5.4 million, in 2014 and is growing in excess of 25% annually in functional currency terms.
