“I am pleased with our first quarter results.  We achieved strong financial metrics across the board that all exceeded our guidance.  Our sales pipeline has doubled year over year and our 2017 selling season is off to a terrific start as we continue to see substantial interest in our full suite of Consumer Directed Benefit offerings.  The integration of ADP’s CHSA and COBRA businesses is progressing ahead of schedule, we continue to expand our reach in the commuter space, and we are seeing increased activity from our many revenue generating channel partners and carrier relationships” said Joe Jackson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WageWorks.

For the first quarter, WageWorks reported total revenue of $125.0 million, compared to $87.0 million for the first quarter of 2016, an increase of 44 percent. Healthcare revenue was $74.0 million, compared to $50.4 million for the first quarter of 2016, an increase of 47 percent.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the Company’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company provides non-GAAP financial measure of net income, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and diluted earnings per share. By providing information about both the overall GAAP financial performance and the non-GAAP measures that focus on what management believes to be its ongoing business operations, the Company believes that the additional information enhances investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s business. The Company’s management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, employee termination and other charges, and the related tax impact of all of these items on the provision for income taxes, and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of the Company’s business for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. The Company’s management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Whenever the Company uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed above. Investors are also encouraged to review the Company’s GAAP financial statements as reported in its SEC filings.
