Management Commentary

“Despite the global pandemic, we held fairly steady in Q4 – expanding our Adjusted EBITDA margin to above 10% – and I am very proud of the resilience and tenacity shown by our people,” said Kate Duchene, chief executive officer. “This pandemic is accelerating changes in how work will get done and by whom – changes we have anticipated and built our business around. Virtual delivery is here to stay and the need for business agility is on the rise, and already impacting workforce design strategies in clients from healthcare to technology. The addition of Veracity to RGP’s tool kit rounds out our ability to deliver digital transformation projects, especially focused on improved employee experience and digital workflows.

As we shared in April, we completed a restructuring of headcount and real estate in North America before the pandemic hit, which better prepared us to operate in the current environment. We had initially planned to complete our strategic review of the European business in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, but the lockdowns caused by the pandemic created delays in our timeline. We are actively conducting the review now and expect to be ready to report further on our plan after the first quarter of fiscal 2021.”

Ms. Duchene concluded, “Until we have further visibility into the full impact of the pandemic on the global economy, we will remain focused on the health of our balance sheet and liquidity. We will make prudent decisions to reinvest in the business to drive key growth initiatives in core markets and the expansion of our digital capabilities. We are confident the actions we are taking in this challenging environment will enhance our agility and our positioning to create long-term shareholder value.”

  1. Constant currency revenue and constant currency organic revenue, for the three months and year ended May 30, 2020 is measured on a constant currency basis while the comparable revenue for the three months and year ended May 25, 2019 is measured under GAAP. Constant currency revenue amounts represent the outcome that would have resulted had exchange rates in the reported period been the same as those in effect in the comparable prior year.
  2. Veracity was acquired on July 31, 2019. Results from Veracity are excluded from all periods presented to provide comparability. See Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial measure below.
  3. We exited the Nordics and Belgium markets during fiscal 2020. Results from the Nordics and Belgium are excluded from all periods presented to provide comparability. See Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial measure below.
  4. See definitions of Non-GAAP measures and Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial measures below.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2020

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased $3.6 million, or 2.0%, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. On a constant currency basis, revenue decreased 1.4% . Veracity contributed $6.2 million of revenue, which was partially offset by a $2.1 million decline as a result of exiting the Nordics and Belgium markets. Excluding these impacts, organic revenue decreased $7.7 million, or 4.3%, or 3.7% on a constant currency basis, compared to the prior year quarter. Organic revenue, on a same day basis, decreased by 10.0%, or 9.5% on a constant currency basis, compared to the prior year quarter, primarily reflecting the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy. The adverse impact on revenue from the pandemic was mitigated to a certain extent by a 2.0% improvement in average bill rate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

On a sequential quarter basis, fiscal 2020 fourth quarter revenue grew $10.5 million, or 6.3%, to $178.6 million from $168.1 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 6.7% from the third quarter of fiscal 2020. The growth in revenue was partially due to an extra week in the fourth quarter 2020 (14 weeks) and no significant compensated holidays in the quarter as compared to the third quarter which included three significant holidays. On a same day basis, revenues in the fourth quarter declined by 4.0%, or 3.6% on a constant currency basis, compared to the sequential quarter primarily due to the continued adverse impact from the pandemic. Average bill rate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 increased by 2.8% compared to the sequential third quarter.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 was up 30 basis points to 40.4%, increasing 30 basis points from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, and 390 basis points sequentially. The year-over-year growth was primarily attributable to lower passthrough revenue from client reimbursement and favorable self-insured medical expenses, partially offset by higher non-billable pay and a slight decline in bill pay ratio. The sequential quarter increase is attributable to lower passthrough revenue from client reimbursement, lower holiday pay to consultants, favorable self-insured medical expense, lower payroll expense and an improvement in the bill pay ratio.

SG&A was $62.0 million, or 34.7% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and $56.9 million, or 31.2% of revenue, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. The year-over-year increase in SG&A reflected one extra week compared to the prior year and included (1) restructuring charge of $5.0 million and (2) a change in contingent consideration related expense/benefit over the two periods, which was an expense of $1.9 million as compared to a benefit of $0.2 million in prior year quarter, partially offset by (1) savings in general business expense and marketing expense of $1.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively, over the two periods primarily due to reduced business travel and control over discretionary spend during the pandemic, and (2) a $0.2 million decrease in stock compensation.

The fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 had a provision for income taxes of $2.9 million (an effective tax rate of 42.0%) as compared to a provision for income taxes of $4.0 million (an effective tax rate of 30.1%) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. The changes were due to the lower pre-tax income and similar permanent basis differences. Additionally, valuation allowances were recorded related to certain foreign deferred tax assets based on a review of earnings trends in connection with the adverse impact from the pandemic.

Full Fiscal Year 2020

Revenue for the fiscal year 2020 was $703.4 million, a decrease of 3.5%, compared to $729.0 million in the prior year. On a constant currency basis, revenue decreased 3.1%. Revenue in fiscal 2020 included $18.8 million of revenue attributable to Veracity, partially offset by a decline of $9.4 million as a result of exiting the Nordics and Belgium markets. Excluding these impacts, organic revenue decreased $35.0 million, or 4.9%, or 4.5% on a constant currency basis, compared to fiscal 2019. On a same day basis, organic revenue decreased by 6.4%, or 6.0% on a constant currency basis, compared to prior year, reflecting the adverse impact of the pandemic and the wind-down of project revenue related to lease accounting implementation and other large projects. Our revenue in the second half of fiscal 2020 decelerated as events relating to the pandemic began and continued to develop globally following January 2020. Average bill rate remained consistent between the two fiscal years and had little impact on overall revenue.

Gross margin for fiscal 2020 expanded 50 basis points to 39.2% from the prior year, primarily attributable to lower passthrough revenue from client reimbursement and a slight improvement in the bill pay ratio.

SG&A was $228.1 million, or 32.4% of revenue, for fiscal 2020 and $223.8 million, or 30.7% of revenue, for fiscal 2019. SG&A in fiscal 2020 reflected one extra week of activities as compared to fiscal 2019. The year-over-year increase in SG&A is primarily due to the following: (1) $5.0 million of restructuring costs incurred in fiscal 2020; (2) a $2.9 million increase in management compensation and bonuses and commissions; and (3) a change in contingent consideration related expense/benefit over the two periods, which was an expense of $0.8 million in fiscal 2020 as compared to a benefit of $0.6 million in fiscal 2019. These increases were partially offset by the following: (1) $2.5 million savings in general business expenses, primarily attributable to cost containment measures and reduced business travel during the pandemic; (2) a $1.7 million decrease in internal consultants costs as we continue to leverage our existing resources more efficiently on various projects and initiatives, and (3) a $0.5 million decrease in stock-based compensation expense.

Provision for income taxes was $6.9 million (an effective tax rate of 19.7%) and $16.5 million (an effective tax rate of 34.4%), for fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively. The reduction in the provision for income taxes during fiscal year 2020 compared to the prior year was primarily caused by a $6.6 million worthless stock deduction taken during the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as well as lower income before provision for income taxes in fiscal 2020 compared to fiscal 2019. This is partially offset by new valuation allowances set up on some of our foreign deferred tax assets based on a review of earnings trends in connection with the adverse impact from the pandemic.

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 measure so calculated and presented. The following are the Company’s non-GAAP measures:

  • Constant currency applied to both GAAP revenue and Non-GAAP revenue, as defined herein, represents the outcome that would have resulted had exchange rates in the reported period been the same as those in effect in the comparable prior period.
  • Same day revenue is calculated as GAAP revenue divided by the number of business days in the current period, multiplied by the number of business days in the comparable prior period. For example, North America revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 on the same day basis as the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 is calculated as North America GAAP revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of $148.6 million divided by the 69 business days in North America in the current period, multiplied by the 65 business days in North America in the fourth quarter of 2019. The number of days in each respective period is provided in “Summary of Consolidated Financial Results” above.
  • Organic revenue is calculated as GAAP revenue less revenues from acquired businesses and revenues related to businesses that the Company disposed of either through sale or abandonment.
  • Same day organic revenue is calculated as organic revenue, divided by the number of business days in the current period, multiplied by the number of business days in the comparable prior period. For example, North America organic revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 on the same day basis as the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 is calculated as North America organic revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of $142.3 million divided by the 69 business days in North America in the current period, multiplied by the 65 business days in North America in the fourth quarter of 2019. The number of days in each respective period is provided in “Summary of Consolidated Financial Results” above.
  • 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 margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenue.
  • Cash tax rate excludes the non-cash tax impact of stock-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the U.S., and non-cash impact of valuation allowances on international deferred tax assets.
  • Adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per common share were calculated based on the Company's cash tax rates, which exclude the non-cash tax impact of stock-based compensation expense, non-cash tax benefits related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and non-cash tax impact of valuation allowances on international deferred tax assets.

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, as well as the Adjusted provision for income taxes and cash tax rate, should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, 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.
