LIONBRIDGE REPORTS Q2 RESULTS WITH RECORD REVENUE OF $144.2 MILLION,
GAAP EPS OF $0.07 AND NON-GAAP EPS OF $0.14
Delivers 6% Sequential Quarter Revenue Growth and Generates $7.8 Million Cash Flow from Operations
WALTHAM, Mass. — August 04, 2016 - Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX), today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.
Financial highlights for the second quarter include:
Record revenue of $144.2 million, an increase of $7.7 million, or 6%, compared to the first quarter of 2016 and a year-on-year increase of $428,000 as compared to the second quarter of 2015.
GAAP net income of $3.9 million, or $0.07 per share, based on 59.3 million weighted average fully diluted common shares outstanding. GAAP net income increased $3.6 million, or $0.06 per share, sequentially compared to the first quarter of 2016. GAAP net income decreased $1.6 million, or $0.02 per share, year-on-year primarily due to a tax variance of $2.0 million, or $0.03 per share, and an unfavorable variance of $1.3 million, or $0.02 per share, in non-operating “other expense” related to the currency effect of balance sheet revaluations.
Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $8.3 million or $0.14 per share, an increase of $2.7 million or $0.05 sequentially compared to the first quarter of 2016. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings declined $3.5 million, or $0.05 per share, year-on-year primarily due to the same unfavorable tax and non-operating “other expense” variances referenced above. Please see the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the attached table for details and reconciliations of this measure to the comparable GAAP measure.
Adjusted EBITDA of $13.7 million, a sequential increase of $3.3 million as compared to the first quarter of 2016 and essentially flat year-on-year as compared to the second quarter of 2015. Please see the section of this release entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the attached table for details and reconciliations of this measure to the comparable GAAP measure.
Cash flow from operations of $7.8 million, a 53% improvement from the second quarter of 2015.
An ending cash balance of $25.5 million.
The Company repurchased 740,000 shares of its common stock in Q2 for an aggregate purchase price of $3.3 million. Year-to-date through June 30, 2016, the Company repurchased 2.6 million shares of its common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $11.8 million.
The Company recently secured several significant new customer engagements, including a leading online education and training company, a large insurance provider, a leader in voice and data communications, a Danish construction planning company and an online games company.
“In the first half of 2016 we completed the reorganization of our worldwide sales and operations around target sectors and geographies. Despite the disruption of this reorganization and some weakness in Europe in the quarter, we continued to ramp our marketing services offering, scale our onDemand platform and expand our revenue in growth verticals,” said Rory Cowan, CEO of Lionbridge. “We enter the second half in a position of operational strength. Our market-based reorganization is complete and we have enabled a more efficient cost structure to drive ongoing profitability and cash flow. As a result, we expect strong earnings for the remainder of this year and further revenue and earnings growth in 2017.”
Lionbridge provided outlook for the third quarter of 2016 with estimated revenue of $135-141 million, reflecting traditional Q3 seasonality, slower demand in Europe and potential impact of Brexit.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this release, the Company's adjusted EBITDA, adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations. These measures are presented because management believes they provide additional information to investors with respect to the performance of the Company’s fundamental business activities. In particular, management believes that adjusted EBITDA, which excludes anticipated non-operational, non-cash or non-recurring losses or gains, provides investors with a consistent comparison of the Company’s operating results, and that adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share illustrates the Company’s operating results excluding non-cash acquisition related expense items and other restructuring expenses as well as non-cash stock based compensation and thus provides a supplemental view of the Company’s financial performance based on underlying operational factors. “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Adjusted earnings” and “Adjusted Earnings per Share (EPS)” are Non-GAAP financial measures and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. Management uses these measures as part of its evaluation of operational results and to make financial and operational decisions, including decisions regarding compensation. Management believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings is net income and believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for adjusted EPS is diluted net income per share of common stock. Accordingly, management has provided a detailed reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their respective comparable GAAP financial measures at the end of this release.
