ATLANTA, July 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRGX Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), the world's leading provider of recovery audit services and the pioneer in Profit Discovery™, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

"PRGX bounced back after a difficult first quarter. While the top line remains below where we would like, Adjusted EBITDA recovered nicely in the second quarter as the PRGX team continues to demonstrate its ability to deliver in a challenging environment," said Romil Bahl, president and chief executive officer.

"In our Recovery Audit Services segments, the Americas resolved the majority of issues that negatively impacted our retail and commercial businesses in Q1. In addition, the Americas business continued to drive out costs, growing gross profits 4.9% over Q2 2012 on comparable revenue; this represents an increase of 256 basis points in gross margin percentage. We believe that our Europe/Asia-Pacific business troughed in the first half of 2013, and expect the team's actions will drive improved performance in this segment in the second half of the year," continued Bahl.

"Positive New Services segment performance was headlined by our Healthcare Claims Recovery Audit business which performed well and also benefitted from processing of claims delayed in prior periods. While we are not yet ready to suggest that the double-digit million-dollar quarterly revenue from this segment is sustainable, we are pleased to have achieved our first ever $10 million New Services revenue quarter, and remain excited about the potential of our growth businesses," concluded Bahl.

Consolidated Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2013

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2013 decreased 2.8% to $50.2 million compared to $51.7 million in the same prior year period. After adjusting for changes in foreign exchange rates, consolidated second quarter revenue in 2013 decreased 2.4% compared to the same period in 2012.

Recovery Audit Services – Americas revenue for the second quarter of 2013 decreased 0.7% to $29.4 million compared to $29.6 million in the same period in the prior year. On a constant dollar basis, adjusted for changes in foreign exchange rates, Recovery Audit Services – Americas revenue was essentially flat compared to 2012.

Recovery Audit Services – Europe/Asia-Pacific revenue for the second quarter of 2013 decreased 19.7% to $10.8 million compared to $13.4 million in the same period in the prior year. On a constant dollar basis, adjusted for changes in foreign exchange rates, Recovery Audit Services – Europe/Asia-Pacific revenue decreased by 18.9% compared to 2012. 

New Services revenue for the second quarter of 2013 increased 16.0% to $10.0 million compared to $8.7 million in the same period in the prior year. The New Services segment represents Healthcare Claims Recovery Audit services and our Profit Optimization services.

Total cost of revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $31.5 million, or 62.8% of revenue, compared to $33.3 million, or 64.5% of revenue, in the same period last year. This decrease in total cost of revenue resulted from decreases in both of the Company's recovery audit segments driven by the expanded use of its Next-Generation Recovery Audit service model. New Services cost of revenue, on an absolute dollar and percentage of revenue basis, also decreased compared to the prior year period. SG&A for the second quarter of 2013 was $12.6 million, or 25.2% of revenue, compared to $12.7 million, or 24.6% of revenue, in the same period last year.

Net cash used in operating activities for the second quarter of 2013 was $4.0 million compared to net cash used in operating activities of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase in net cash used in operating activities was due primarily to an increase in unbilled revenue associated with growth in Healthcare Claims Recovery Audit services.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2013 was $7.9 million compared to $7.6 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2012. Second quarter 2013 Adjusted EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding a charge of $1.2 million related to stock-based compensation, $0.6 million of transformation severance and related expenses, a less than $0.1 million charge for acquisition obligations classified as compensation, and $0.2 million of foreign currency losses on short-term intercompany balances. The comparable Adjusted EBITDA amount for the second quarter of 2012 excludes from EBITDA for such period a $1.2 million charge for stock-based compensation, $0.3 million in wage claim costs, $0.3 million of transformation severance and related expenses, a $0.1 million charge for acquisition obligations classified as compensation, and $0.5 million of foreign currency gains on short-term intercompany balances.

In addition to historical information, this press release includes certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include both implied and express statements regarding the Company's expectations for the remainder of 2013, auditing under its current Medicare RAC subcontracts, the outcome of the rebid of Medicare RAC program contracts and associated transitions and resulting impacts on the Company's financial results, and the expected benefits of the Company's redesigned recovery audit service delivery model. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to differ materially from the historical results or from any results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Risks that could affect the Company's future performance include revenue that does not meet expectations or justify costs incurred, the Company's ability to develop material sources of new revenue in addition to revenue from its core recovery audit services, changes in the market for the Company's services, the Company's ability to retain and attract qualified personnel, changes to Medicare and Medicaid recovery audit contractor programs and the outcome of the rebid of the Medicare RAC program contracts, the Company's ability to integrate recent and future acquisitions, uncertainty in the credit markets, the Company's ability to maintain compliance with its financial covenants, client bankruptcies, loss of major clients, and other risks generally applicable to the Company's business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are all "non-GAAP financial measures" presented as supplemental measures of the Company's performance. They are not presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. The Company believes these measures provide additional meaningful information in evaluating its performance over time, and that the rating agencies and a number of lenders use EBITDA and similar measures for similar purposes. In addition, a measure similar to Adjusted EBITDA is used in the restrictive covenants contained in the Company's secured credit facility. However, EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. In addition, in evaluating EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that, as described above, the adjustments may vary from period to period and in the future the Company will incur expenses such as those used in calculating these measures. The Company's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. Schedule 3 to this press release provides a reconciliation of net earnings (loss) to each of EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.
