Management Commentary

“We are very excited to have produced the strongest revenue and Adjusted EBITDA we’ve seen in over ten years for both the fourth quarter and full fiscal year. We accomplished this by successfully executing on our record pipeline of opportunities across all businesses, while remaining disciplined on the cost front,” stated Kate W. Duchene, Chief Executive Officer. “Project size and duration continued to grow as we expanded the depth of our relationships and the breadth of our services within our global client base. As we look ahead, we are greatly encouraged by the solid trajectory of our pipeline supported by reoccurring projects from our strategic clients as they leverage RGP’s experienced talent to help them execute on transformations and fill on-demand talent gaps.”

Ms. Duchene continued, “With our flexible platform, we continue to attract a premier professional workforce that is focused and motivated to outperform client expectations. In a permanently changing world, we are building the ideal professional home for the best talent who wants to work in new ways. Our successful execution, coupled with favorable secular trends including rapid adoption of workforce agility, workforce gaps caused by the tightening labor market, the persistent demand for digital transformation services, and the increase in client spending on significant transformational initiatives, should continue to enable us to deliver increased shareholder value.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

The Company executed seamlessly against market opportunities in the fourth quarter and achieved strong year-over-year growth as well as sequential growth. Revenue was driven by growing pipeline and size of closed deals over recent quarters. Our successful execution, coupled with favorable secular trends including a rapid shift to workforce agility and a continued tight labor market, enabled us to attain broad based topline growth across most client segments, including strategic global and regional accounts in the majority of our markets and solution areas. With heightened and continued focus on pricing, the Company’s average bill rate increased by 4.0% from the prior year quarter and 2.3% sequentially, contributing to the overall year-over-year revenue growth of 25.9% to $217.0 million, the strongest fiscal quarter revenue performance since fiscal 2008.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter was 41.3%, compared to 39.6% in the prior year’s quarter. The increase was primarily due to a 190 basis point improvement in pay/bill ratio driven by ongoing efforts to enhance pricing while offering competitive consultant wages as the labor market continues to tighten.

SG&A for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $59.4 million, or 27.3% of revenue, compared to $50.8 million, or 29.5% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, reflecting an improvement of 220 basis points largely as a result of higher operating leverage. The rise in SG&A year over year was primarily due to higher incentive compensation as a result of achieving significant growth in both revenue and profitability.

The fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 had a provision for income taxes of $7.2 million (an effective tax rate of 26.1%) compared to an income tax benefit of $7.8 million (an effective benefit rate of 50.6%) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. The income tax benefit in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was related to an NOL carryback permitted under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, generating a $12.8 million tax benefit from the tax rate differential between the various applicable tax years.

Strong performance in the fourth quarter resulted in net income of $20.5 million (net income margin of 9.5%), compared to $23.2 million (net income margin of 13.5%) in the prior year quarter, which included the one-time $7.8 million income tax benefit discussed above. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, an improvement of 340 basis points over the prior year quarter and the highest margin level in over a decade.

Full Fiscal Year 2022 Results

Annual revenue growth for fiscal 2022 was 27.9% to $805.0 million and gross margin improved by 100 basis points to 39.3% from a year ago, driven by our reinvigorated focus to raise bill rates that better reflected value delivered to clients. Operational efficiency in the business supported better SG&A leverage to 27.9%, a 540 basis point improvement from a year ago. The Company delivered net income of $67.2 million (net income margin of 8.3%) for fiscal 2022, diluted earnings per common share of $2.00, and 12.8% Adjusted EBITDA margin, all record results relative to the past decade.

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, accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“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 consolidated 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 a 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.
  • EBITDA is calculated as net income before amortization expense, depreciation expense, interest and income taxes.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before amortization expense, depreciation expense, interest and income taxes plus stock-based compensation expense, restructuring costs, technology transformation 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).
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per common share is calculated as diluted earnings per common share, plus the per share impact of stock-based compensation expense, restructuring costs, and technology transformation costs, plus or minus the per share impact of contingent consideration adjustments, and adjusted for the related tax effects of these adjustments.

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 revenue, net income or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP for purposes of analyzing our revenue, 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.

Technology transformation costs represent costs included in net income related to the Company’s initiative to upgrade its technology platform globally, including a cloud-based enterprise resource planning system and talent acquisition and management system. Such costs primarily include software licensing costs, third-party consulting fees and costs associated with dedicated internal resources that are not capitalized.

Segment Results

Effective in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company revised its segment reporting to align with changes made in its internal management structure and its reporting structure of financial information used to assess performance and allocate resources. On May 31, 2022, we completed the sale of taskforce to the senior leaders of the business. We believe an interim management business that primarily serves the middle-market client base in Germany no longer aligns with our strategy in the European region, which highly focuses on providing project consulting and execution services to large global clients. Beginning in fiscal 2023, we will operate in the remaining two operating segments, RGP and Sitrick.

Operating results by reportable segment are included in the following table. Please refer to the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table above for the reconciliation of consolidated net income to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods presented.
