Crawford & Company Reports Strong 2017 Second Quarter Results

Company Reaffirms 2017 Guidance

ATLANTA, Aug. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crawford & Company (www.crawfordandcompany.com) (NYSE:CRD-A) (NYSE:CRD-B), the world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management solutions to insurance companies and self-insured entities, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The Company’s two classes of stock are substantially identical, except with respect to voting rights and the Company’s ability to pay greater cash dividends on the non-voting Class A Common Stock (CRD-A) than on the voting Class B Common Stock (CRD-B), subject to certain limitations. In addition, with respect to mergers or similar transactions, holders of CRD-A must receive the same type and amount of consideration as holders of CRD-B, unless different consideration is approved by the holders of 75% of CRD-A, voting as a class.

Consolidated Results
Second Quarter 2017 Summary

  • Revenues before reimbursements of $269.2 million, compared with $282.3 million for the 2016 period
  • Revenues on a constant dollar basis, a non-GAAP financial measure, of $275.1 million for the 2017 second quarter after adjusting for $5.9 million in foreign exchange rate changes
  • Net income attributable to shareholders of $10.2 million compared to $8.6 million in the same period last year
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.19 for CRD-A and $0.17 for CRD-B, compared with $0.16 for CRD-A and $0.14 for CRD-B in the prior year quarter
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.27 for CRD-A and $0.25 for CRD-B on a non-GAAP basis in the 2017 quarter, before restructuring and special charges, compared to $0.20 for CRD-A and $0.19 for CRD-B in the prior year quarter
  • Consolidated operating earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, were $29.2 million or 10.8% of revenues in the 2017 second quarter, compared with $23.9 million or 8.5% of revenues in the 2016 second quarter
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $38.2 million or 14.2% of revenues in the 2017 second quarter, compared with $32.3 million or 11.4% of revenues in the 2016 period

Mr. Harsha V. Agadi, president and chief executive officer of Crawford & Company, stated, “We are pleased with our second quarter results as we delivered solid margin expansion and operating profit growth despite ongoing softer market trends for our Garden City Group segment. We believe that the decisive steps we took through the second quarter to reduce our expense structure have positioned the Company to deliver the financial expectations we set at the beginning of the year, while also providing the necessary resources for reinvestment into our sales and marketing teams, as well as new product development, in order to position Crawford for future revenue growth.

“Overall, our revenues were down 5% from the 2016 quarter with a large factor being foreign exchange headwinds. Despite this, GAAP net income rose 18% over the prior year quarter driven by strong consolidated operating earnings growth of 22%, with our operating margin expanding 230 basis points over the 2016 quarter. This performance reflects the benefits of cost reductions, higher case volumes, and lower corporate costs.

“We were also successful in attracting accomplished executives to the Company, including Rohit Verma who joins Crawford as our Global Chief Operating Officer. Rohit brings more than 20 years of deep sector expertise to Crawford having previously served as a senior executive for Zurich North America. As a part of his new role, Rohit will be responsible for Crawford’s operating segments and our global information technology function where he will be focused on optimizing our operations to ensure that we are maximizing the many opportunities that exist today. I am also pleased that Terry Hunt has rejoined Crawford as the head of Global Technical Services in the United States. Terry had a very successful track record managing GTS over the years and we are thrilled that he has rejoined Crawford to lead this very important business again.

“Looking at our segment results, U.S. Services saw robust margin expansion in the quarter and had the highest operating margins of any of our segments at 18%. Broadspire also delivered double-digit operating margins in the 2017 quarter as we continued to see solid growth in medical management and disability services, which remain areas of opportunity for us. Our international operations were impacted by foreign exchange headwinds and challenging global markets, though operating margins expanded modestly as a result of cost control. Lastly, GCG continued to face a challenging market as the volume and size of cases has not rebounded from first quarter levels.”

Mr. Agadi concluded, “While we are pleased to be reaffirming guidance today on the heels of an overall strong second quarter, there is still more work to be done to drive growth and future earnings sustainability. For the remainder of 2017, our focus will continue to be on revenue growth, leveraging our many global resources, and remaining vigilant on cost containment.”

Segment Results for the Second Quarter

U.S. Services

U.S. Services revenues before reimbursements were $61.3 million in the second quarter of 2017, increasing 4% from $58.9 million in the second quarter of 2016. Operating earnings were $11.1 million in the 2017 second quarter, compared with $9.6 million in the second quarter of 2016, representing operating margins of 18% in the 2017 period and 16% in the 2016 period.

International

Second quarter 2017 revenues before reimbursements for the International segment totaled $110.4 million, compared with $122.6 million in the 2016 second quarter. This decrease was partly due to changes in foreign exchange rates which negatively impacted revenues by approximately 5%, or $5.9 million, and decreases in weather related activity in the 2017 period. International segment operating earnings were $10.3 million in the 2017 second quarter, compared with $11.1 million in the 2016 second quarter. The segment’s operating margin was 9% in both the 2017 and 2016 periods.

Broadspire

Broadspire segment revenues before reimbursements were $77.9 million in the 2017 second quarter, up from $75.1 million in the 2016 second quarter. Broadspire recorded operating earnings of $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, representing an operating margin of 11%, compared with $6.5 million, or 9% of revenues, in the 2016 second quarter.

Garden City Group

Garden City Group revenues before reimbursements were $19.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared with $25.7 million in the same period of 2016. Operating losses were $(1.7) million in the 2017 second quarter compared with earnings of $2.6 million in the 2016 period. The segment’s operating margin for the 2017 quarter was (8)% as compared to 10% in the 2016 quarter.

Unallocated Corporate and Shared Costs and Credits, Net

Unallocated corporate costs and (credits), net were $(0.5) million in the second quarter of 2017, compared with $5.9 million in the same period of 2016. The decreased costs for the second quarter of 2017 were due to decreases in defined benefit pension expense, self-insured expenses, and unallocated professional fees.

Restructuring and Special Charges

The Company recorded restructuring and special charges of $6.8 million and $3.5 million in the 2017 and 2016 second quarters, respectively. Restructuring costs of $6.8 million in the 2017 quarter were incurred related to a reduction of administrative costs and consolidation of management layers in certain operations and the establishment and phase in of the Company’s Global Business Services Center in Manila, Philippines and Global Technology Services Center in Pune, India (the “Centers”).

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

The Company’s consolidated cash and cash equivalents position as of June 30, 2017 totaled $60.0 million compared with $81.6 million at December 31, 2016.

The Company’s operations used $16.4 million of cash during the 2017 period, compared with cash provided of $11.5 million in the 2016 period. The increase in cash used in operating activities in the first six months of 2017 compared with the first six months of 2016 was primarily due to a decrease in accrued compensation and related costs from timing of compensation payments, and an increase in accounts receivable.

/EIN News/ -- 2017 Guidance

Crawford & Company is reaffirming its guidance for 2017 as follows:

  • Consolidated revenues before reimbursements between $1.10 and $1.13 billion;
  • After expected restructuring and special charges, net income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company between $34.0 and $39.0 million, or $0.63 to $0.73 diluted earnings per CRD-A share, and $0.55 to $0.65 diluted earnings per CRD-B share;
  • Consolidated operating earnings between $90.0 and $100.0 million;
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA between $130.0 and $140.0 million;
  • Before expected restructuring and special charges, net income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company on a non-GAAP basis between $43.0 and $48.0 million, or $0.78 to $0.88 diluted earnings per CRD-A share, and $0.71 to $0.81 diluted earnings per CRD-B share.

The Company expects to incur restructuring and special charges in 2017 totaling approximately $13.0 million pretax. This is expected to be comprised of $3.0 million related to the Centers and $10.0 million related to other restructuring activities.

To a significant extent, Crawford’s business depends on case volumes. The Company cannot predict the future trend of case volumes for a number of reasons, including the fact that the frequency and severity of weather-related claims and the occurrence of natural and man-made disasters, which are a significant source of claims and revenue for the Company, are generally not subject to accurate forecasting.

Conference Call

As previously announced, Crawford & Company will host a conference call today, August 9, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss its second quarter 2017 results. The conference call can be accessed live by dialing 1-800-374-2518 and using passcode 6373715. A presentation for today’s call can also be found on the investor relations portion of the Company’s website, http://www.crawfordandcompany.com. The call will be recorded and available for replay through September 9, 2017. You may dial 1-855-859-2056 to listen to the replay. The access code is 6373715.

Non-GAAP Presentation

In the normal course of business, our operating segments incur certain out-of-pocket expenses that are thereafter reimbursed by our clients. Under GAAP, these out-of-pocket expenses and associated reimbursements are required to be included when reporting expenses and revenues, respectively, in our consolidated results of operations. In the foregoing discussion and analysis of segment results of operations, we do not include a gross up of segment expenses and revenues for these pass-through reimbursed expenses. The amounts of reimbursed expenses and related revenues offset each other in our results of operations with no impact to our net income or operating earnings. A reconciliation of revenues before reimbursements to consolidated revenues determined in accordance with GAAP is self-evident from the face of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Operating earnings is the primary financial performance measure used by our senior management and chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) to evaluate the financial performance of our Company and operating segments, and make resource allocation and certain compensation decisions. Unlike net income, segment operating earnings is not a standard performance measure found in GAAP. We believe this measure is useful to others in that it allows them to evaluate segment and consolidated operating performance using the same criteria used by our senior management and CODM. Consolidated operating earnings represent segment earnings including certain unallocated corporate and shared costs and credits, but before net corporate interest expense, stock option expense, amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets, restructuring and special charges, income taxes, and net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests. The reconciliation of operating earnings to net income attributable to shareholders of the Company on a GAAP basis is presented below.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a term defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of adjusted EBITDA might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark our operational results and the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is relevant and useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to shareholders of the Company with adjustments for depreciation and amortization, net corporate interest expense, income taxes, restructuring and special charges, and stock-based compensation expense.

Unallocated corporate and shared costs and credits include expenses and credits related to our chief executive officer and Board of Directors, certain provisions for bad debt allowances or subsequent recoveries such as those related to bankrupt clients, defined benefit pension costs or credits for our frozen U.S. pension plan, certain unallocated professional fees, and certain self-insurance costs and recoveries that are not allocated to our individual operating segments. Restructuring and special charges are non-core items not directly related to our normal business or operations, or our future performance.

Income taxes, net corporate interest expense, stock option expense, and amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets are recurring components of our net income, but they are not considered part of our segment operating earnings because they are managed on a corporate-wide basis. Income taxes are calculated for the Company on a consolidated basis based on statutory rates in effect in the various jurisdictions in which we provide services, and vary significantly by jurisdiction. Net corporate interest expense results from capital structure decisions made by senior management and the Board of Directors, affecting the Company as a whole. Stock option expense represents the non-cash costs generally related to stock options and employee stock purchase plan expenses which are not allocated to our operating segments. Amortization expense is a non-cash expense for finite-lived customer-relationship and trade name intangible assets acquired in business combinations. None of these costs relate directly to the performance of our services or operating activities and, therefore, are excluded from segment operating earnings in order to better assess the results of each segment's operating activities on a consistent basis.

Income taxes are calculated for the non-GAAP presentation of net income before restructuring and special charges based on statutory rates in effect in the various jurisdictions in which charges exist, and vary by jurisdiction.

Following is a reconciliation of segment and consolidated operating earnings (loss) to net income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company on a GAAP basis. The reconciliation of 2017 guidance is to the midpoint of the guidance range.
