StarTek, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

Stocks in this article: SRT

Financial Summary

Third quarter 2011 revenue of $52.0 million represented a decrease of 9.0% compared to $57.1 million in the second quarter of 2011, and a decrease of 20.7% compared to $65.6 million in the third quarter of 2010. The decline was driven by the North American site closure and downsizings mentioned above, which accounted for $6.7 million of the decline compared to the second quarter of 2011. Revenue also declined due to the transition to a greater mix of offshore revenue which generates lower revenue but higher gross margins. These declines to revenue were partially offset by offshore revenue growth of $2.8 million.

Gross margin declined to 7.8% in the third quarter of 2011 compared to 11.0% in the second quarter of 2011 and 10.1% in the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was driven by lower U.S. and Canadian margins, which fell to 6.5% and 3.8%, respectively, due to site closures, as well as lower volumes and lower profitability in the sites that remain open. Offshore gross margin increased to 12.2% from 7.3% last quarter. Compared to last quarter, offshore gross profit dollars increased by $1.1 million on a $2.8 million revenue increase, representing incremental gross margin contribution of 36.6%.

SG&A expense for the quarter totaled $10.0 million, compared to $13.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2010. The decrease compared to the second quarter of 2011 was primarily due to the absence of $2.9 million in severance expense that impacted the second quarter.

The Company reported third quarter 2011 negative adjusted EBITDA (adjusted for severance expense, impairment and restructuring charges and stock compensation expense) of $1.5 million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company reported a net loss of $6.2 million, or $0.41 per share, during the third quarter of 2011, compared to $9.7 million, or $0.64 per share, during the second quarter of 2011.
