TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated ("SYKES" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:SYKE), a global leader in providing comprehensive outsourced customer contact management solutions and services in the business process outsourcing (BPO) arena, announced today its financial results for the second-quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

• Second quarter 2014 revenues of $320.5 million increased $15.8 million, or 5.2%, from $304.7 million in the comparable quarter last year driven largely by existing client programs across the communications, technology and transportation verticals; on a constant currency basis, second quarter 2014 revenues increased 6.5% comparably, but were partially moderated primarily by two factors: an unanticipated timing delay in a client program within the communications vertical, the demand from which shifted from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2014, which had a disproportionate impact to second quarter 2014 financial results; and a scope change (due partly to regulatory changes in a client's industry), which started to reduce projected run-rate demand in a client program within the financial services vertical. The unfavorable revenue impact from these two factors was approximately $5 million in the second quarter

 • Second quarter 2014 operating margin was 3.3% versus 1.8% in the same period last year; on a non-GAAP basis (see section titled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for an explanation and see Exhibit 6 for reconciliation), second quarter 2014 operating margin increased to 4.7% versus 3.7% in the same period last year due to revenue growth and operating leverage, coupled with favorable foreign exchange impact (approximately 60 basis points favorable), all of which were partially offset by increased ramp-up costs for expected demand in the third quarter, coupled with the aforementioned timing and scope change issues (the timing and scope issues had a negative impact of approximately 70 basis points on a combined basis)  

 • Second quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share increased 46.2% to $0.19 versus $0.13 in the comparable quarter last year with the increase on a comparable basis driven by revenue growth and expense leverage; second quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share were at the mid-point of the Company's May 2014 business outlook range of $0.18 to $0.20 due to a lower effective tax rate driven by a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to lower tax rate jurisdictions along with the aforementioned timing and scope change issues

 • On a non-GAAP basis, second quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share increased 22.7% to $0.27 versus $0.22 in the same period last year (see Exhibit 6 for reconciliation) with the comparable increase driven by revenue growth and expense leverage. Second quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share were at the top-end of the Company's May 2014 business outlook range of $0.25 to $0.27, which was due chiefly to a lower effective tax rate; however, adjusting for the non-GAAP effective tax rate of 29% as projected in the Company's May 2014 business outlook, second quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share would have been $0.24, which was impacted by the aforementioned timing and scope change issues along with increased ramp costs

 • Consolidated capacity utilization rate increased to 79% in the second quarter of 2014 from 75% in the comparable period last year amid an increase in seat capacity, with the increase in utilization rate driven by a combination of current demand, aforementioned unanticipated issues in the second quarter and the timing of agent ramps associated with forecasted seasonal demand growth for the third quarter of 2014; consolidated capacity utilization rate increased on a sequential basis to 79% in the second quarter of 2014 from 76% in the first quarter of 2014 driven largely by the above-mentioned factors

Americas Region

Revenues from the Company's Americas region, including operations in North America and offshore (Latin America, South Asia and the Asia Pacific region), increased 0.6% to $256.7 million, or 80.1% of total revenues, for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $255.2 million, or 83.7% of total revenues, in the same prior year period driven largely by the expansion of existing client programs across the communications, technology and transportation verticals. On a constant currency basis, second quarter 2014 Americas revenue increased 3.0% comparably, but was partially moderated by the previously mentioned timing and scope change issues.

Sequentially, revenues generated from the Americas region were down 1.8% to $256.7 million from $261.2 million, or 80.5% of total revenues, in the first quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, second quarter 2014 Americas revenues decreased 2.4% over the first quarter, due to seasonality coupled with the previously mentioned timing and scope change issues.

The Americas income from operations in the second quarter of 2014 increased 10.0% to $21.1 million, with an operating margin of 8.2% versus 7.5% in the comparable quarter last year. On a non-GAAP basis, the Americas operating margin increased to 9.8% from 9.7% in the comparable quarter last year, driven by growth in new and existing client programs and operating leverage driven by better expense control, coupled with favorable foreign exchange impacts (approximately 90 basis points), all of which were partially offset by the previously mentioned timing and scope change issues. The impact to operating margins on a combined basis was approximately 80 basis points (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation). 

Sequentially, the Americas income from operations in the second quarter of 2014 decreased 6.7% to $21.1 million, with an operating margin of 8.2% versus 8.7% in the first quarter of 2014. On a non-GAAP basis, the Americas operating margin decreased to 9.8% from 10.2%. The decrease was due to seasonality coupled with the aforementioned timing and scope change issues, which were partially offset by favorable foreign exchange impacts (approximately 40 basis points) (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

EMEA Region

Revenues from the Company's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region increased 28.8% to $63.8 million, representing 19.9% of total revenues for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $49.6 million, or 16.3% of total revenues, in the same prior year period. On a constant currency basis, EMEA revenues increased 24.5%, driven largely by the expansion of existing client programs across the communications, technology and financial services verticals.

Sequentially, revenues from the Company's EMEA region increased 1.0% to $63.8 million, or 19.9% of SYKES' total revenues, versus $63.2 million, or 19.5% of SYKES' total revenues, in the first quarter of 2014 driven by the technology and transportation verticals. On a constant currency basis, EMEA revenues increased 1.1% sequentially.

The EMEA region's income from operations in the second quarter of 2014 was $1.6 million, or 2.4% of EMEA revenues, versus a loss of $1.9 million, or 3.9% of revenues, in the comparable quarter last year. On a non-GAAP basis, the operating margin was 2.2% versus a negative 3.9% in the same period last year as the year-ago period included new client start-up ramp costs without the commensurate revenue contribution (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Sequentially, the EMEA region's income from operations in the second quarter of 2014 was $1.6 million, or 2.4% of EMEA revenues, versus $2.9 million, or 4.6% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2014. On a non-GAAP basis, the EMEA operating margin decreased to 2.2% from 4.6% due to higher employee costs in the form of overtime pay in certain countries resulting from the timing of public holidays, particularly Good Friday, which this year occurred in the second quarter of 2014 (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Corporate G&A Expenses

Corporate G&A expenses increased to $12.3 million, or 3.8% of revenues, in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $11.7 million, or 3.8% of revenues, in the comparable quarter last year. On a non-GAAP basis, corporate G&A expenses were essentially flat at $11.6 million on a comparable basis, however, they decreased slightly as a percentage of revenues to 3.6% from 3.8% of revenues in the second quarter of 2013, with the percentage decline driven largely by expense leverage due to higher comparable revenues (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Sequentially, corporate G&A expenses increased to $12.3 million, or 3.8% of revenues, from $11.1 million, or 3.4% of revenues, relative to the first quarter of 2014. On a non-GAAP basis, corporate G&A expenses increased to $11.6 million, or 3.6% of revenues, from $11.1 million, or 3.4% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2014, driven by an increase in professional services fees (see Exhibit 7 for reconciliation).

Interest & Other Expense and Taxes

Interest and other expense in the second quarter of 2014 totaled $0.7 million, relatively unchanged from comparable period last year. Of that $0.7 million in expense, net interest expense was approximately $0.3 million, with the remaining $0.4 million of expense driven principally by derivative losses related to foreign currency exposures.   

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 14.2% for the second quarter of 2014 versus a tax benefit of 14.0% in the same period last year and below the estimated 25% provided in the Company's May 2014 business outlook. The tax benefit in the year-ago period was due largely to a combination of operating losses in certain tax paying jurisdictions related to program ramp ups and a shift in the geographic mix of earnings. Relative to the May 2014 business outlook, the decrease in the effective tax rate was driven largely by a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to lower tax rate jurisdictions.

On a non-GAAP basis, the second quarter 2014 effective tax rate was 20.7% compared to 8.0% in the same period last year and below the estimated 29.0% provided in the Company's May 2014 business outlook (see Exhibit 11 for reconciliation). The flux in the effective tax rate both on a comparable and relative basis was due to a shift in the geographic mix of earnings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2014 remained strong with cash and cash equivalents of $204.5 million, of which $187.0 million, or 91.4% of the cash balance, was held in international operations and may be subject to additional taxes if repatriated to the United States, including withholding tax applied by the country of origin and U.S. taxes on the dividend income. Net cash provided by operating activities was $23.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 versus $7.2 million in the same period last year, with the three-fold increase driven by a combination of increased net income, higher non-cash charges and changes in operating assets and liabilities. During the quarter, the Company paid down approximately $17.0 million under its revolving senior credit facility, leaving it with $79.0 million of borrowings outstanding at June 30, 2014, down from $96.0 million at March 31, 2014. The amount available under the Company's credit facility was $166.0 million at June 30, 2014.

Business Outlook

The assumptions driving the business outlook for the third quarter and full-year 2014 are as follows:

• Underlying demand trends continue to remain healthy on balance. Demand growth from existing and new clients within the communications and technology verticals continues. Partially moderating these demand trends near term, however, are the previously-mentioned timing and scope-change issues. Although the scope-change issue with a client within the financial services vertical is expected to additionally impact revenue and diluted earnings per share in the third and fourth quarters of 2014, as the Company winds down this program due to a lack of sustained demand and profitability, the delayed program ramp up with a communications client is not expected to impact the third and fourth quarters of 2014 as the issue was merely timing. As a result of both, the Company anticipates the updated revenue range of $1,310 million to $1,320 million versus the previous business outlook range provided in May 2014 of $1,320 million to $1,335 million. Similarly, the Company now anticipates a non-GAAP diluted earnings per share range of $1.34 to $1.41 versus the previous business outlook range of $1.45 to $1.54;

 • The Company's revenues and earnings per share assumptions for the third quarter and full year 2014 are based on foreign exchange rates as of July 2014. Therefore, the continued volatility in foreign exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the functional currencies of the markets the Company serves could have a further impact, positive or negative, on revenues and both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share relative to the business outlook for the third quarter and full-year;

 • The Company plans to add approximately 900 seats on a gross basis in 2014 versus 1,200 as previously announced, partly in light of the program exit with the above-discussed financial services client. The Company added roughly 800 seats in the first half of 2014, including 200 in the second quarter, with the remaining 100 slated for the second half of 2014. Total seat count on a net basis for the full year, however, is now expected to decrease by approximately 1,500 seats versus a planned 1,200 seats as the Company continues to rationalize excess capacity;

 • The Company anticipates interest and other expense of approximately $0.7 million for the third quarter and $1.9 million for the full year 2014, which includes interest expense related to the debt associated with the acquisition of Alpine Access. The updated interest and other expense amount excludes the potential impact of any un-forecasted future foreign exchange gains or losses in other expense; and

 • The Company anticipates a slightly lower effective tax rate for the full-year 2014 compared to projections provided in its May 2014 business outlook, with the decrease driven chiefly by a shift in the geographic mix of earnings to lower tax rate jurisdictions.

Considering the above factors, the Company anticipates the following financial results for the three months ending September 30, 2014: 

• Revenues in the range of $328.0 million to $333.0 million,• Effective tax rate of approximately 25%; **on a non-GAAP basis, an effective tax rate of approximately 27%• Fully diluted share count of approximately 42.8 million• Diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.28 to $0.31• **Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.34 to $0.37• Capital expenditures in the range of $18.0 million to $20.0 million    

For the twelve months ending December 31, 2014, the Company anticipates the following financial results:  

• Revenues in the range of $1,310.0 million to $1,320.0 million• Effective tax rate of approximately 25%; **on a non-GAAP basis, an effective tax rate of approximately 27%• Fully diluted share count of approximately 42.8 million• Diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.08 to $1.15• **Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.34 to $1.41• Capital expenditures in the range of $48.0 million to $50.0 million    

** See exhibits 10 & 11 for third quarter and full-year 2014 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and tax rate reconciliations.
