CHARLES RIVER ASSOCIATES (CRA) REPORTS
FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2021
Broad-based Contributions Drive Strong Revenue and Profit Growth

Company Increases Quarterly Dividend by 19%

BOSTON, November 4, 2021 –
Charles River Associates (NASDAQ: CRAI), a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial and management consulting services, today announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended October 2, 2021.

“Building on a strong first half of fiscal 2021, CRA reported revenue growth of 12.0% year over year to $136.4 million, representing the 23rd consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth,” said Paul Maleh, CRA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our performance for the quarter was driven by double-digit revenue growth in each of our Antitrust & Competition Economics, Financial Economics, Forensic Services, Labor & Employment, Marakon, and Risk, Investigations & Analytics practices. Both our North American and international operations contributed to our quarterly growth, increasing year over year by 14.1% and 3.5%, respectively. The quarter’s top-line growth resulted in accelerating profit expansion, as CRA’s net income, earnings per diluted share and EBITDA all grew significantly faster than revenue.”

Key Third-Quarter Fiscal 2021 Highlights
Revenue grew 12.0% year over year to $136.4 million.
Utilization was 73%, and quarter-end headcount increased 6.8% year over year.
Net income increased 102.6% year over year to $10.9 million, or 8.0% of revenue, compared with $5.4 million, or 4.4% of revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2020; non-GAAP net income increased 80.3% year over year to $10.9 million, or 8.0% of revenue, compared with $6.1 million, or 5.0% of revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
Earnings per diluted share increased 111.8% year over year to $1.44 from $0.68; non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 89.5% year over year to $1.44 from $0.76.
Non-GAAP EBITDA increased 35.3% to $16.2 million, or 11.9% of revenue, compared with $12.0 million, or 9.8% of revenue, in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.
On a constant currency basis relative to the third quarter of fiscal 2020, revenue, GAAP net income, and earnings per diluted share would have been lower by $1.4 million, $0.1 million, and $0.01 per diluted share, respectively. Non-GAAP net income, earnings per diluted share, and EBITDA would have been lower by $0.1 million, $0.01 per diluted share, and $0.2 million respectively.
CRA returned $6.9 million of capital to its shareholders, consisting of $1.9 million of dividend payments and $5.0 million for share repurchases of approximately 53,000 shares.

Outlook and Financial Guidance
“Through the first three quarters of fiscal 2021, on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2020, we have increased revenue by 14.6% to $425.1 million and non-GAAP EBITDA by 43.0% to $52.6 million, achieving a margin of 12.4%. These results demonstrate the strength and quality of our business,” continued Maleh. “While the business continues to deliver strong results, our third-quarter revenue was below our expectations as we experienced a rate of employee vacation time that was more than 20% higher than in the year-ago period and the highest rate for a third quarter over the prior five years. Although helpful for the health and well-being of our colleagues, the heightened vacation time acted as a headwind to our top-line growth, and may continue during the November and December holidays.”

“As a result, we are lowering our full-year revenue guidance while maintaining our EBITDA margin guidance. For the full-year fiscal 2021, on a constant currency basis relative to fiscal 2020, we now expect revenue in the range of $560 million to $570 million, and non-GAAP EBITDA margin to exceed the upper end of the range of 11.2% to 11.7%. We are pleased with CRA’s strong performance
