WALTHAM, Mass. – February 08, 2011

— Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010.

Financial highlights for FY 2010 include:

  Revenue of $405.2 million, an increase of $16.0 million or 4.1% from the year ended December 31, 2009. In constant currency the Company’s revenue increased 5.5% from the prior year.

  GAAP net loss for the year of $1.3 million or ($0.02) per share based on 56.7 million weighted average common shares outstanding. This compares to a net loss of $4.0 million or ($0.07) per share in the prior year.

  FY 2010 GAAP net loss includes restructuring expense of $7.8 million or $0.14 per share.

  Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $15.4 million or $0.26 per share, compared to non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $12.0 million or $0.21 in FY 2009. The Company defines non-GAAP earnings as GAAP net income excluding merger, restructuring and related costs, stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. 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 $8.7 million during the year.  

  The Company continues to be net cash positive with an ending cash balance of $28.2 million and long-term debt of $24.7 million as of December 31, 2010.

Business highlights for FY 2010 include:

  After several years of internal use and multi-tenancy development, the Company introduced its first SaaS product to the market with the launch of Translation Workspace™, Lionbridge’s cloud-based translation productivity platform. Within the first eight months of introduction, the Company has secured more than 2,300 subscriptions from translators and agencies in over 80 countries. In 2011, the Company plans to extend Translation Workspace to enterprise clients as well. As a result, Lionbridge expects adoption of Translation Workspace to continue to accelerate in 2011 as translators, agencies and enterprises realize the benefits of the industry’s only global scale, real time, live asset management system.

  Lionbridge announced a partnership agreement with IBM for the development and commercialization of automated translation technology. With that agreement Lionbridge is the only provider to offer SaaS-based, text-to-text language automation solutions to commercial clients based on IBM’s Real Time Translation Service (RTTS) technology. Since this partnership announcement, Lionbridge has secured three prominent beta customers for this real time translation platform, now called GeoFluent ™. This reflects strong demand for customizable, cost-effective, instantaneous translation of enterprise content that is not currently translated using traditional translation methods. The Company expects to make GeoFluent generally available in Q2 of 2011.

  The Company has also successfully expanded its Global Sourcing and Search (GSS) professional crowdsourcing service offering. GSS now has access to 100,000 pre-qualified, independent professionals in over 4,600 cities in 102 countries that provide in-country expertise and on-demand knowledge, from applications such as web search relevance rating to regulatory compliance in local markets. This offering grew 22% in 2010, making it one of Lionbridge’s fastest growing services.

  Lionbridge secured a number of significant new customer engagements in 2010, including a world leader in mobile media and computing devices, a market-leading automobile manufacturer, a global wireless company, a market-leading pharmaceutical company, a global provider of IT management software, a mobile cell phone provider, a global leader in personal computing and digital media, a premier online content network for information and entertainment and a prestigious global art auctioneer.

“In 2010 we continued to accelerate our business and financial performance,” said Rory Cowan, CEO, Lionbridge. “Despite short-term, product cycle downturns from our largest client in the second half, we delivered solid revenue growth, accelerated our SaaS strategy, managed our costs and generated cash. As a result, we believe we are well positioned for strong revenue and profit expansion in 2011 as spending from our top customers rebounds and as we scale our recent new business wins.”

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported revenue of $100.4 million, a sequential quarter increase of $1.1 million from the third quarter of 2010 and a year-on-year decrease of $4.6 million from the fourth quarter of 2009.

On a GAAP basis, the Company reported a GAAP net loss for the quarter of $2.6 million or ($0.04) per share. This includes restructuring expense of $1.9 million or $0.03 per share. Excluding restructuring fourth quarter net loss was $671,000 or ($0.01) per share

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the fourth quarter was $1.6 million or $0.03 per share. The Company defines non-GAAP earnings as GAAP net income excluding merger, restructuring and related costs, stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. 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.

“The fourth quarter came in as we expected with a short-term slowdown from our largest client,” continued Cowan. “Despite this headwind, we ramped our new account wins, strengthened our pipeline of new business, and continued to generate market demand for our GeoFluent real time translation technology. These achievements give us added confidence that we will accelerate revenue and profit in 2011.”

The Company reaffirmed its revenue expectations for the first quarter of 2011 with estimated revenue of $98 million to $102 million. Lionbridge also stated it expects sequential quarter and year-on-year growth in Q2 and strengthening further in the second half of 2011. The Company also reiterated its expectations for FY 2011 revenue growth of 5-10% with further growth in profitability.
