CEB Reports Fourth Quarter Results And Provides 2013 Guidance

The Corporate Executive Board Company (“CEB” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CEB) today announces financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. The financial results include the results of operations of SHL Group Holdings 1 Limited and its subsidiaries (“SHL”) for the entire fourth quarter of 2012 and from August 2, 2012 (the date of acquisition) for the full year of 2012. Revenue increased 46.8% to $193.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $132.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $19.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the same period of 2011. Adjusted net income was $23.6 million and Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.69 in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $21.7 million and $0.65 in the same period of 2011, respectively.

In 2012, revenue was $622.7 million, a 28.5% increase from $484.7 million for 2011. Income from continuing operations in 2012 was $37.1 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to $57.4 million, or $1.67 per diluted share, in 2011. Income from continuing operations in 2012 includes $24.5 million of costs primarily associated with the acquisition and integration of SHL. Adjusted net income was $86.2 million and Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $2.55 in 2012 compared to $64.3 million and $1.87 in 2011, respectively.

“CEB’s 2012 results reflect our success at helping our customers navigate a complex environment,” said Tom Monahan, Chairman and CEO. “Continued momentum across most of our businesses provides us with the resources to invest in growth and to return capital to shareholders. We are planning for a year of continued solid top-line growth, attractive margins, and increased investment to realize both short and long term growth opportunities.”

OUTLOOK FOR 2013

The Company’s 2013 annual guidance is as follows: Adjusted revenue of $825 to $845 million, revenue of $812 to $832 million, capital expenditures of $29 to $31 million, Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.85 to $3.15, an Adjusted EBITDA margin between 25.0% and 26.5%, and depreciation and amortization expense of $62 to $64 million. Adjusted revenue refers to revenue before the impact of the reduction of SHL revenue recognized in the post-acquisition period to reflect the adjustment of deferred revenue at the SHL acquisition date to fair value.

FOURTH QUARTER SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS

Since the August 2012 acquisition of SHL, the Company has had two operating segments, CEB and SHL. The CEB segment includes the legacy CEB products and services provided to senior executives and their teams to drive corporate performance. SHL provides cloud-based solutions for talent assessment and talent mobility as well as professional services that support those solutions. Beginning with the fourth quarter of 2012, Personnel Decisions Research Institutes, Inc. (“PDRI”), a subsidiary acquired as part of the SHL acquisition, is included in the CEB segment. PDRI provides customized personnel assessment tools and services to various agencies of the U.S. Government. The Company’s segment disclosures for the year ended December 31, 2012 have been recast for comparative purposes to include PDRI in the CEB segment. The SHL segment represents the acquired SHL business except for PDRI.

CEB Segment

CEB segment revenue increased 18.0% in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $155.7 million from $132.0 million in the same period of 2011. There was $7.5 million of PDRI revenue included in CEB segment revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012. CEB segment Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $43.0 million compared to $40.6 million in the same period of 2011. CEB segment Adjusted EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 27.6% of segment revenue compared to 30.8% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

CEB segment revenue increased 16.4% during 2012 to $564.1 million from $484.7 million in 2011. There was $12.6 million of PDRI revenue included in CEB segment revenue in 2012. CEB segment Adjusted EBITDA in 2012 was $154.6 million compared to $120.8 million in 2011. CEB segment Adjusted EBITDA margin in 2012 was 27.4% of segment revenue compared to 24.9% in 2011.

CEB segment Contract Value at December 31, 2012 increased 12.5% to $561.8 million compared to $499.4 million at December 31, 2011. CEB segment Wallet retention rate at December 31, 2012 was 102% compared to 100% at December 31, 2011. CEB segment Contract Value per member institution increased 6.0% at December 31, 2012 to $92,252 from $87,040 at December 31, 2011.

SHL Segment

SHL segment revenue was $38.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. SHL segment Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $11.6 million. SHL segment Adjusted EBITDA margin in the quarter was 24.8% of segment Adjusted revenue.

SHL segment revenue was $58.6 million in 2012. SHL segment Adjusted EBITDA in 2012 was $19.6 million. SHL segment Adjusted EBITDA margin in 2012 was 25.9% of segment Adjusted revenue.

SHL segment Wallet retention rate at December 31, 2012 was 97%. Unlike CEB members, a majority of SHL customers do not typically enter into contracts for fixed periods, so Contract Value is not a relevant operating statistic for the SHL segment.

QUARTERLY DIVIDEND

The Company announces that its Board of Directors has approved a cash dividend on its common stock for the first quarter of 2013 of $0.225 per share, an increase of 30% compared to the dividend paid in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company will fund its dividend payments with cash on hand and cash generated from operations. The dividend is payable on March 29, 2013 to stockholders of record on March 15, 2013.

SHARE REPURCHASE

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company repurchased approximately 240,000 shares of its common stock at a total cost of $10.0 million. These purchases were made pursuant to the Company’s prior stock repurchase authorization, which expired on December 31, 2012.

On February 5, 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a new $50 million stock repurchase program, which is authorized through December 31, 2014. Repurchases may be made through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions. The timing of repurchases and the exact number of shares of common stock to be repurchased will be determined by CEB’s management, in its discretion, and will depend upon market conditions and other factors. The program will be funded using the Company’s cash on hand and cash generated from operations.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and the accompanying tables, as well as earnings discussions, include a discussion of Adjusted revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, and Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to the results provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Beginning in the third quarter of 2012, we changed our definition of these non-GAAP measures to provide enhanced insight into the financial performance of our business. Specifically, we are now adjusting for the impact of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment, share-based compensation, and amortization of acquisition related intangibles when calculating these metrics.

The term “Adjusted revenue” refers to revenue before impact of the reduction of SHL revenue recognized in the post-acquisition period to reflect the adjustment of deferred revenue at the SHL acquisition date to fair value (the “deferred revenue fair value adjustment”).

The term “Adjusted EBITDA” refers to a financial measure that we define as net income before loss from discontinued operations, net of provision for income taxes; interest expense, net; depreciation and amortization; provision for income taxes; the impact of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment; acquisition related costs; share-based compensation; costs associated with exit activities; restructuring costs; and gain on acquisition.

The term “Adjusted EBITDA margin” refers to Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Adjusted revenue.

The term “Adjusted Net Income” refers to net income before loss from discontinued operations, net of provision for income taxes and excludes the after tax effects of the impact of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment, acquisition related costs, share-based compensation, amortization of acquisition related intangibles, costs associated with exit activities, restructuring costs, and gain on acquisition.

“Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share” refers to diluted earnings per share before the per share effect of loss from discontinued operations, net of provision for income taxes and excludes the after tax per share effects of the impact of the deferred revenue fair value adjustment, acquisition related costs, share-based compensation, amortization of acquisition related intangibles, costs associated with exit activities, restructuring costs, and gain on acquisition.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are relevant and useful supplemental information for evaluating our results of operations as compared from period to period and as compared to our competitors. We use these non-GAAP financial measures for internal budgeting and other managerial purposes, when publicly providing the Company’s business outlook, and as a measurement for potential acquisitions. These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and therefore may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies.

These non-GAAP measures may be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but they should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We intend to continue to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in the accompanying tables.

You are hereby cautioned that these statements are based upon our expectations at the time we make them and may be affected by important factors including, among others, the factors set forth below and in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and consequently, actual operations and results may differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements include, among others, our dependence on renewals of our membership-based services, the sale of additional programs to existing members and our ability to attract new members, our potential failure to adapt to changing member needs and demands, our potential failure to develop and sell, or expand sales markets for our SHL tools and services, our potential inability to attract and retain a significant number of highly skilled employees or successfully manage succession planning issues, fluctuations in operating results, our potential inability to protect our intellectual property rights, our potential inability to adequately maintain and protect our information technology infrastructure and our member and client data, potential confusion about our rebranding, including our integration of the SHL brand, our potential exposure to loss of revenue resulting from our unconditional service guarantee, exposure to litigation related to our content, various factors that could affect our estimated income tax rate or our ability to use our existing deferred tax assets, changes in estimates, assumptions or revenue recognition policies used to prepare our consolidated financial statements, our potential inability to make, integrate and maintain acquisitions and investments, the amount and timing of the benefits expected from acquisitions and investments including our acquisition of SHL, our potential inability to effectively manage the risks associated with the indebtedness we incurred and the senior secured credit facilities we entered into in connection with our acquisition of SHL or any additional indebtedness we may incur in the future, our potential inability to effectively manage the risks associated with our international operations, including the risk of foreign currency exchange fluctuations, and our potential inability to effectively anticipate, plan for and respond to changing economic and financial markets conditions, especially in light of ongoing uncertainty in the worldwide economy and possible volatility of our stock price. Various important factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our expected or historical results are discussed more fully in the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Risk Factors” sections of our filings with the SEC, including, but not limited to, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed in November 2012 and our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

With respect to the Company’s 2013 annual guidance, reconciliations net income to Adjusted EBITDA, net income to Adjusted net income, and GAAP diluted earnings per share to Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share as projected for 2013 are not provided because the Company cannot, without unreasonable effort, determine the components of net income and GAAP diluted earnings per share to provide reconciliations for 2013 with certainty at this time.
