Management Commentary

“We came back strong in the fourth quarter and delivered on all fronts – top line growth, gross margin improvement and disciplined cost control,” said Kate W. Duchene, chief executive officer. “I am especially proud of our progress expanding Adjusted EBITDA margin by 600 basis points sequentially and 160 basis points year over year. We are starting off the new fiscal year in a position of strength as our pipeline has grown significantly over the past six months, fueled by our clients’ needs for transformational project work and traditional staffing gaps. Coming out of the global pandemic, professional talent is making different choices. The move toward careers built on agile work, increased flexibility and continuous learning is advantageous for RGP as we have been built to offer such a professional home for the best talent of the future. We are increasingly excited about these macro trends and our ability to execute.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

Revenue increased 10.0% sequentially, or 4.7% on a same day constant currency basis, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Compared to the prior year quarter, revenue declined 3.5% but grew 1.2% on a same day constant currency basis. The revenue acceleration during the fourth quarter reflected strong demand across the majority of our solution offerings, led by Finance and Accounting, Business Transformation and Technology and Digital, as well as industry verticals led by financial services and healthcare. Our strategic clients continued to be one of the key drivers of revenue acceleration, achieving a 10.1% revenue improvement sequentially in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. The strong topline performance in the fourth quarter resulted from the combination of better operational execution, pent-up client demand from the COVID-19 pandemic (the “Pandemic”), and new demand in areas such as digital transformation as clients accelerate their digital agendas and resume discretionary spending. In addition, macro trends accelerated by the Pandemic, including increased use of contingent talent and the shift towards a more agile workforce model, also helped propel the robust momentum in professional staffing revenue growth throughout fiscal 2021. Given the timing of our fiscal period and the latent impact of the Pandemic in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, we did not yet see the full impact of the recovery from the Pandemic in our results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.

Gross margin was 39.6%, compared to 40.4% in the prior year quarter. The change was mostly due to an 85-basis-point increase in pay/bill ratio primarily caused by more opportunistic pricing through rebates and discounts, while offering competitive pay rates to consultants as the labor market continues to tighten.

SG&A continues to improve as a result of the Company’s restructuring efforts at the beginning and throughout the Pandemic. SG&A expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $50.8 million, which included $1.5 million of contingent consideration expense and $0.2 million benefit from the adjustment of restructuring costs. SG&A expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was $62.0 million, which included $1.9 million of contingent consideration expense and $5.0 million of restructuring costs. Excluding contingent consideration and restructuring costs in both periods, SG&A expense improved $5.6 million, or 10.2%, year over year. Management compensation including bonus was reduced by $3.9 million, or 10.3%, compared to the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of the restructuring initiatives and one less week included in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. Occupancy costs were reduced by $1.3 million, or 29.6%, compared to the prior year, as we continue to realize savings from real estate exits.

Income taxes was a benefit of $7.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to an expense of $2.9 million in the prior year quarter. The income tax benefit in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was primarily related to our tax planning strategies under which we elected to make certain changes to the capitalization of fixed assets, resulting in an NOL carryback permitted under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. As a result, we recognized a discrete tax benefit of $12.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, and plan to file for a federal tax refund of $34.0 million within the next 12 months.

Net income was $23.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, elevated by the discrete tax benefit of $12.8 million, compared to $4.1 million in the prior year quarter, which included substantially higher restructuring costs in the amount of $5.0 million. With revenue growth and significantly improved cost structure, the Company delivered an adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.0%, an improvement of 160 basis points from the prior year quarter.

Full Fiscal Year 2021 Results

Revenue declined 10.5% year-over-year, or 10.2% on a same day constant currency basis, due to the Pandemic, which started to impact the Company globally in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, revenue has steadily accelerated each quarter, resulting in revenue growth when comparing the fourth quarters of the two fiscal years on a same day constant currency basis.

Net income was $25.2 million for fiscal 2021 compared to $28.3 million in the prior year. Fiscal 2021’s results included the impact of contingent consideration and restructuring charges totaling $12.8 million, offset by the discrete tax benefit of $12.8 million in connection with the NOL carryback as described above. Fiscal 2020 included $5.8 million of contingent consideration and restructuring charges, offset by $6.6 million of tax benefit as a result of the deduction of the investment basis in four European entities upon their dissolutions.

Through steady topline recovery during the fiscal year and achieving a significantly favorable cost structure, the Company delivered an 8.4% adjusted EBITDA margin in fiscal 2021, just 10 basis points below the prior year.

In this press release, such statements include statements regarding our growth and operational plans, including the strength of our pipeline and expectations regarding macro trends. Such statements and all phases of the Company’s operations are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements and those of our industry to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties include uncertainties regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and the economy generally, our ability to successfully execute on our strategic initiatives, our ability to realize the level of benefit that we expect from our restructuring initiatives, our ability to compete effectively in the highly competitive professional services market and to secure new projects from clients, our ability to successfully integrate any acquired companies, overall economic conditions and other factors and uncertainties as are identified in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 30, 2020, the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 29, 2021, which will be filed on or around July 23, 2021, and our other public filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission (File No. 0-32113).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company utilizes certain financial measures and key performance indicators that are not defined by, or calculated in accordance with, GAAP to assess our financial and operating performance. A non-GAAP financial measure is defined as a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that (i) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations; or (ii) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the comparable GAAP measure so calculated and presented. The following non-GAAP measures are presented in this press release:

  • Same day constant currency revenue is adjusted for the following items:
    • Currency impact. In order to remove the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, the Company calculates constant currency revenue, which represents the outcome that would have resulted had exchange rates in the current period been the same as those in effect in the comparable prior period.
    • Business days impact. In order to remove the fluctuations caused by comparable periods having different number of business days, the Company calculates same day revenue as current period revenue (adjusted for currency impact) divided by the number of business days in the current period, multiplied by the number of business days in the comparable prior period. The number of business days in each respective period is provided in the “Number of Business Days” section of the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table below.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before amortization of intangible assets, depreciation expense, interest and income taxes plus stock-based compensation expense, restructuring costs, and plus or minus contingent consideration adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA at the segment level excludes certain shared corporate administrative costs that are not practical to allocate.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenue.
  • Cash tax rate excludes the non-cash tax impact of stock option expirations, non-cash tax impact of valuation allowances on international deferred tax assets, and other non-cash tax items.
  • Adjusted (benefit from) provision for income taxes is calculated based on the Company’s cash tax rates (as defined above).
  • Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, adjusted diluted earnings per common share is calculated as diluted earnings per common share, plus the per share impact of stock-based compensation expense and restructuring costs, plus or minus the per share impact of contingent consideration adjustments, and adjusted for the related tax effects of these adjustments. The prior year adjusted diluted earnings per common share has been revised to conform to the current year definition.

We believe the above-mentioned non-GAAP measures, which are used by management to assess the core performance of our Company, provide useful information and additional clarity of our operating results to our investors in their own evaluation of the core performance of our Company and facilitate a comparison of such performance from period to period. These are not measurements of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or construed as substitutes for net income or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP for purposes of analyzing our profitability or liquidity. These measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, revenue, net income, earnings per share, cash flows or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently.
