FTI Consulting Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Second Quarter 2020 Revenues of $607.9 Million, Up 0.3% Compared to $606.1 Million in Prior Year Quarter
  • Second Quarter 2020 EPS of $1.27, Down 24.9% Compared to $1.69 in Prior Year Quarter; Second Quarter 2020 Adjusted EPS of $1.32, Down 23.7% Compared to $1.73 in Prior Year Quarter
  • Announces $200.0 Million Increase in Share Repurchase Authorization and Reaffirms 2020 Guidance

WASHINGTON, July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today released financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second quarter 2020 revenues of $607.9 million increased $1.7 million, or 0.3%, compared to revenues of $606.1 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact from foreign currency translation ("FX"), revenues increased $9.3 million, or 1.6%, compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was driven by higher demand in the Corporate Finance & Restructuring business segment, which was nearly offset by lower demand in the Forensic and Litigation Consulting and Technology business segments compared to the prior year quarter. Net income of $48.2 million compared to $64.6 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease in net income was due to higher compensation, primarily related to an 18.2% increase in billable headcount and higher variable compensation, which was partially offset by a decline in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses and a lower tax rate compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA of $75.8 million, or 12.5% of revenues, compared to $97.2 million, or 16.0% of revenues, in the prior year quarter.

Second quarter 2020 fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $1.27 compared to $1.69 in the prior year quarter. Second quarter 2020 EPS included $2.3 million of non-cash interest expense related to the Company's 2.0% convertible senior notes due 2023 ("2023 Convertible Notes"), which decreased EPS by $0.05. Second quarter 2019 EPS included $2.1 million of non-cash interest expense related to the Company's 2023 Convertible Notes, which decreased EPS by $0.04. Second quarter 2020 Adjusted EPS of $1.32, which excludes the non-cash interest expense, compared to Adjusted EPS of $1.73 in the prior year quarter.

Steven H. Gunby, President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting, commented, “Our strong results this quarter reflect the powerful sets of initiatives we have undertaken over the last few years to strengthen our core positions, extend into new adjacencies and anticipate our clients’ needs, together with the extraordinary efforts of our teams to collaborate with our clients as they face their greatest challenges and opportunities.”

Cash Position and Capital Allocation
Net cash provided by operating activities of $153.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to $47.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. The year-over-year increase in net cash provided by operating activities was largely due to an increase in cash collected and lower non-compensation-related operating expenses compared to the prior year quarter, which was partially offset by an increase in salaries, primarily related to the increase in headcount.

Cash and cash equivalents of $304.2 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $189.1 million at June 30, 2019 and $223.1 million at March 31, 2020. Total debt, net of cash, of $47.0 million at June 30, 2020 compared to $147.1 million at June 30, 2019 and $143.2 million at March 31, 2020. The sequential decrease in total debt, net of cash, was primarily due to net cash provided by operating activities, which was partially offset by cash used for share repurchases.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 470,853 shares of its common stock at an average price per share of $108.41 for a total cost of $51.0 million. As of June 30, 2020, approximately $65.3 million remained available for stock repurchases under the Company’s $500.0 million stock repurchase authorization. On July 28, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors authorized an additional $200.0 million to repurchase shares of FTI Consulting’s outstanding common stock pursuant to its stock repurchase program. After giving effect to share repurchases through such date and the increased authorization, FTI Consulting has approximately $249.5 million remaining available for common stock repurchases under the program. No time limit was established for the completion of the program, and the program may be suspended, discontinued or replaced by the Board at any time without prior notice.

Under the program, FTI Consulting may repurchase shares in open-market purchases or any other method in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulations. The specific timing and amount of repurchases will be determined by FTI Consulting’s management, in its discretion, and will vary based on market conditions, securities law limitations and other factors. The repurchases may be funded using available cash on hand or a combination of cash and available borrowings under FTI Consulting’s senior secured revolving bank credit facility.

Second Quarter 2020 Segment Results

Corporate Finance & Restructuring
Revenues in the Corporate Finance & Restructuring segment increased $56.0 million, or 29.5%, to $246.0 million in the quarter compared to $190.0 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact from FX, revenues increased $58.3 million, or 30.7%, compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher demand and realization for restructuring services, which was partially offset by a decline in success fees and lower revenues related to business transformation and transaction services compared to the prior year quarter. Acquisition-related revenues contributed $12.4 million compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of $76.3 million, or 31.0% of segment revenues, compared to $50.5 million, or 26.6% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The increase in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was due to higher revenues, which was partially offset by higher compensation, primarily related to a 34.7% increase in billable headcount and higher variable compensation.

Forensic and Litigation Consulting
Revenues in the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment decreased $39.5 million, or 27.1%, to $106.4 million in the quarter compared to $145.9 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact from FX, revenues decreased $37.5 million, or 25.7%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower demand for investigations and disputes services. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of a loss of $9.0 million compared to $28.2 million, or 19.4% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was due to lower revenues and higher compensation, primarily related to a 9.4% increase in billable headcount, which was partially offset by a decline in SG&A expenses.

Economic Consulting

Excluding the estimated negative impact from FX, revenues decreased $2.5 million, or 1.6%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was largely due to lower demand for financial economics and non-merger and acquisition ("M&A")-related antitrust services, as well as lower realization for non-M&A-related antitrust and international arbitration services, which was partially offset by higher demand for M&A-related antitrust services. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of $21.7 million, or 14.3% of segment revenues, compared to $23.3 million, or 15.0% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was primarily due to lower revenues and an increase in bad debt expenses, which was partially offset by lower variable compensation.

Technology
Revenues in the Technology segment decreased $8.5 million, or 15.4%, to $47.1 million in the quarter compared to $55.6 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact from FX, revenues decreased $8.0 million, or 14.4%, compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to lower demand for litigation and global cross-border investigation services, as well as lower revenues related to the completion of transition services associated with the September 2018 sale of the Company’s Ringtail e-discovery software and related business. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of $6.4 million, or 13.7% of segment revenues, compared to $12.9 million, or 23.1% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was due to lower revenues and higher compensation, primarily related to a 19.5% increase in billable headcount.

Strategic Communications
Revenues in the Strategic Communications segment decreased $2.2 million, or 3.8%, to $56.9 million in the quarter compared to $59.1 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the estimated negative impact from FX, revenues decreased $1.0 million, or 1.7%, compared to the prior year quarter. This decrease in revenues was primarily due to a $1.9 million decline in pass-through revenues. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of $10.0 million, or 17.6% of segment revenues, compared to $10.5 million, or 17.7% of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA was due to higher compensation, primarily related to a 13.2% increase in billable headcount, which was partially offset by a decline in SG&A expenses.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
In the accompanying analysis of financial information, we sometimes use information derived from consolidated and segment financial information that may not be presented in our financial statements or prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Certain of these measures are considered "non-GAAP financial measures" under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") rules. Specifically, we have referred to the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Total Segment Operating Income

  • Adjusted EBITDA

  • Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin

  • Adjusted Net Income

  • Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share

  • Free Cash Flow

We have included the definitions of Segment Operating Income (Loss) and Adjusted Segment EBITDA, which are GAAP financial measures, below in order to more fully define the components of certain non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release. We define Segment Operating Income (Loss) as a segment’s share of consolidated operating income. We define Total Segment Operating Income, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as the total of Segment Operating Income (Loss) for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Segment Operating Income (Loss) for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment’s share of consolidated operating income before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a basis to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment’s ability to generate cash. We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues.

We define Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as the total of Adjusted Segment EBITDA for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We define Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as consolidated net income before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges, gain or loss on sale of a business and losses on early extinguishment of debt. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results and GAAP financial measures, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results with the operating results of other companies.

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS"), which are non-GAAP financial measures, as net income and earnings per diluted share ("EPS"), respectively, excluding the impact of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges, losses on early extinguishment of debt, non-cash interest expense on convertible notes and the gain or loss on sale of a business. We use Adjusted Net Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted EPS. Management uses Adjusted EPS to assess total Company operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results and GAAP financial measures, provide management and investors with an additional understanding of our business operating results, including underlying trends.

We define Free Cash Flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less cash payments for purchases of property and equipment. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provides management and investors with an additional understanding of the Company’s ability to generate cash for ongoing business operations and other capital deployment.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable with other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the financial tables accompanying this press release.

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which involve uncertainties and risks. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning our plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, future revenues, future results and performance, expectations, plans or intentions relating to acquisitions, share repurchases and other matters, business trends and other information that is not historical, including statements regarding estimates of our future financial results. When used in this press release, words such as "estimates," "expects," "anticipates," "projects," "plans," "intends," "believes,"  "forecasts" and variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, estimates of our future financial results, are based upon our expectations at the time we make them and various assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith, and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs and estimates will be achieved, and the Company’s actual results may differ materially from our expectations, beliefs and estimates.

We are under no duty to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform such statements to actual results or events and do not intend to do so.
