Non-GAAP Consolidated Results

  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.20 for CRD-A and $0.19 for CRD-B on a non-GAAP basis in the 2018 second quarter, before restructuring and special charges and loss on disposition of business line, compared to $0.27 for CRD-A and $0.25 for CRD-B in the prior year second quarter
     
  • Consolidated operating earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure, were $21.6 million or 8% of revenues in the 2018 second quarter, compared with $29.2 million or 11% of revenues in the 2017 second quarter
     
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $31.3 million or 11% of revenues in the 2018 second quarter, compared with $38.2 million or 14% of revenues in the 2017 period

Mr. Harsha V. Agadi, president and chief executive officer of Crawford & Company, stated, “I am pleased with our results as the comprehensive strategy that we implemented through 2017 continues to show signs of success.  Our team’s singular focus is to return Crawford & Company to sustained revenue growth and the initiatives that we have put in place through 2017 are beginning to take hold as can be seen in our second quarter results where revenues grew 4% from the prior year quarter and represent our third consecutive quarter of growth. Of note, revenues grew 6% when excluding the Garden City Group which demonstrates the building momentum in our core business.

“Our second quarter results also demonstrate our commitment to our clients which we deliver day in and day out. It is this commitment which builds brand loyalty and positions Crawford as a more valuable partner. An example of this was our response to the major wind storms in Canada during the quarter where we leveraged our global scale to deliver for clients who were suddenly inundated with a high volume of claims. Ultimately, as we continue to deliver for our clients in their times of need, we will differentiate Crawford and see our market share grow.

“A key factor to our success and ability to overcome industry challenges has been the successful achievement of our commitment to improve our sales team and our sales effectiveness. Year to date, our RFP win rate has improved to 38% and we have retained 100% of our U.S. CAT clients this season, both of which are marked improvements over prior years. I am especially pleased with both our CAT retention and the increase in catastrophe business overall given the substantial investment that we made during the unprecedented hurricane season that we encountered last year. Another noteworthy success in the quarter came in Europe where we were engaged by a top 5 global carrier to form the first of its kind pan-European response team on a weather related surge for us.

“These successes demonstrate our renewed focus on execution in order to drive improved results. Our sale of the Garden City Group in the second quarter is another key step which will further sharpen our focus as we move towards providing integrated end-to-end solutions for our clients. With the sale complete, we will now be able to focus our entire organization on our core client segments which are Corporates, Brokers, and Carriers. Additionally, we have now realigned our sales teams in our major markets to more aggressively pursue these segments. We are also increasing our investment in our Tier 1 countries of the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia where we are best positioned to leverage our strengths and more effectively sell ‘One Crawford’ to our clients. These investments will deliver a much higher market share than we have today and position Crawford to successfully achieve our longer term goal of delivering 5% revenue growth and 15% earnings growth, annually,” concluded Mr. Agadi.

Segment Results for the Second Quarter

Crawford TPA Solutions: Broadspire

Crawford TPA Solutions: Broadspire segment revenues before reimbursements were $102.6 million in the 2018 second quarter, increasing 6% from $97.0 million in the 2017 second quarter. On a constant dollar basis, a non-GAAP measure, second quarter 2018 revenues were $101.7 million. Crawford TPA Solutions: Broadspire recorded operating earnings of $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2018, representing an operating margin of 8%, compared with $9.7 million, or 10% of revenues, in the 2017 second quarter.

Crawford Claims Solutions

Crawford Claims Solutions revenues before reimbursements were $93.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, increasing 15% from $81.1 million in the second quarter of 2017. On a constant dollar basis, second quarter 2018 revenues were $89.6 million. Operating earnings were $3.8 million in the 2018 second quarter, compared with $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2017, representing an operating margin of 4% in both the 2018 and 2017 periods.

Crawford Specialty Solutions

Crawford Specialty Solutions revenues before reimbursements were $83.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, down 9% from $91.1 million in the same period of 2017. On a constant dollar basis, second quarter 2018 revenues were $80.5 million. Operating earnings were $10.4 million in the 2018 second quarter compared with $14.1 million in the 2017 period. The segment’s operating margin for the 2018 quarter was 12%, as compared to 15% in the 2017 quarter.

Unallocated Corporate and Shared Costs and Credits, Net

Unallocated corporate costs, net were $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared with a credit of $2.0 million in the same period of 2017. The increase for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was due an increase in unallocated professional fees during the 2018 period and certain expense credits in the prior year period.

Restructuring and Special Charges

The Company recorded no restructuring and special charges in the 2018 second quarter and restructuring charges of $6.8 million in the 2017 second quarter. Restructuring costs for the 2017 second quarter were comprised of costs related to the establishment and phase in of the Company's global business and technology service centers and other restructuring charges for asset impairments and lease termination costs.

Loss on Disposition of Business Line

On June 15, 2018, the Company completed the sale of all of the issued and outstanding equity interests in its Garden City Group business to EPIQ Class Action & Claims Solutions, Inc. for initial proceeds of $42.0 million, subject to post-closing working capital adjustments. Adjusted proceeds totaled $44.6 million including the preliminary working capital adjustment of $2.6 million. Net proceeds received were used to repay outstanding borrowings under the Company’s credit facility. The sale resulted in the recognition of a pretax loss on the sale of $17.8 million during the second quarter of 2018, after including transaction costs of $1.9 million related to the sale. The loss on sale of the GCG business is presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as a separate charge "Loss on Disposition of Business Line".

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

The Company’s consolidated cash and cash equivalents position as of June 30, 2018 totaled $46.3 million, compared with $54.0 million at December 31, 2017. The Company’s total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2018 totaled $225.1 million, compared with $225.7 million at December 31, 2017.

During the three months ended June 30, 2018 the Company did not repurchase shares of CRD-A or CRD-B. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company repurchased 1,011,958 shares of CRD-A and 53,888 shares of CRD-B at an average cost of $8.28 and $8.96, respectively.

The Company’s operations used $18.7 million of cash during the 2018 period, compared with $16.4 million used in the 2017 period. The increase in cash used in operating activities was primarily due to increases in unbilled receivables due to increases in weather related revenues, partially offset by lower accrued compensation and bonus payments compared to 2017.

2018 Guidance

Crawford & Company is updating its guidance for 2018 to reflect the disposal of the Garden City Group business as follows:

  • Consolidated revenues before reimbursements between $1.07 and $1.12 billion;

  • Net income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company between $31.0 and $36.0 million, or $0.56 to $0.66 diluted earnings per CRD-A share, and $0.49 to $0.59 diluted earnings per CRD-B share;

  • Consolidated operating earnings between $85.0 and $95.0 million;

  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA between $127.0 and $137.0 million;

  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company, before loss on disposition of business line, between $43.0 and $48.0 million, or $0.78 to $0.88 diluted earnings per CRD-A share, and $0.71 to $0.81 diluted earnings per CRD-B share.

To a significant extent, Crawford’s business depends on case volumes. The Company cannot predict the future trend of case volumes for a number of reasons, including the fact that the frequency and severity of weather-related claims and the occurrence of natural and man-made disasters, which are a significant source of claims and revenue for the Company, are generally not subject to accurate forecasting.

Conference Call

As previously announced, Crawford & Company will host a conference call on August 7, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its second quarter 2018 results. The conference call can be accessed live by dialing 1-800-374-2518 and using Conference ID 3199486. A presentation for tomorrow’s call can also be found on the investor relations portion of the Company’s website, http://www.crawfordandcompany.com. The call will be recorded and available for replay through September 7, 2018. You may dial 1-855-859-2056 to listen to the replay.

Non-GAAP Presentation

In the normal course of business, our operating segments incur certain out-of-pocket expenses that are thereafter reimbursed by our clients. Under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), these out-of-pocket expenses and associated reimbursements are required to be included when reporting expenses and revenues, respectively, in our consolidated results of operations. In the foregoing discussion and analysis of segment results of operations, we do not include a gross up of segment expenses and revenues for these pass-through reimbursed expenses. The amounts of reimbursed expenses and related revenues offset each other in our results of operations with no impact to our net income or operating earnings. A reconciliation of revenues before reimbursements to consolidated revenues determined in accordance with GAAP is self-evident from the face of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Operating earnings is the primary financial performance measure used by our senior management and chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) to evaluate the financial performance of our Company and operating segments, and make resource allocation and certain compensation decisions. Unlike net income, segment operating earnings is not a standard performance measure found in GAAP. We believe this measure is useful to others in that it allows them to evaluate segment and consolidated operating performance using the same criteria used by our senior management and CODM. Consolidated operating earnings represent segment earnings including certain unallocated corporate and shared costs and credits, but before net corporate interest expense, stock option expense, amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets, goodwill impairment charges, restructuring and special charges, loss on disposition of business line, income taxes, and net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests and redeemable noncontrolling interests.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a term defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of adjusted EBITDA might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark our operational results. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is relevant and useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to shareholders of the Company with adjustments for depreciation and amortization, net corporate interest expense, income taxes, restructuring and special charges, loss on disposition of business line and stock-based compensation expense.

Unallocated corporate and shared costs and credits include expenses and credits related to our chief executive officer and Board of Directors, certain provisions for bad debt allowances or subsequent recoveries such as those related to bankrupt clients, defined benefit pension costs or credits for our frozen U.S. pension plan, certain unallocated professional fees, and certain self-insurance costs and recoveries that are not allocated to our individual operating segments. Restructuring and special charges and loss on disposition of business line are non-core items not directly related to our normal business operations, or our future performance.

Income taxes, net corporate interest expense, stock option expense, and amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets are recurring components of our net income, but they are not considered part of our segment operating earnings because they are managed on a corporate-wide basis. Income taxes are calculated for the Company on a consolidated basis based on statutory rates in effect in the various jurisdictions in which we provide services, and vary significantly by jurisdiction. Net corporate interest expense results from capital structure decisions made by senior management and the Board of Directors, affecting the Company as a whole. Stock option expense represents the non-cash costs generally related to stock options and employee stock purchase plan expenses which are not allocated to our operating segments. Amortization expense is a non-cash expense for finite-lived customer-relationship and trade name intangible assets acquired in business combinations. None of these costs relate directly to the performance of our services or operating activities and, therefore, are excluded from segment operating earnings in order to better assess the results of each segment's operating activities on a consistent basis.

Income taxes are calculated for the non-GAAP presentation of net income before restructuring and special charges and loss on disposition of business line based on statutory rates in effect in the various jurisdictions in which charges exist, and vary by jurisdiction.

Following is a reconciliation of segment and consolidated operating earnings to net (loss) income attributable to shareholders of Crawford & Company on a GAAP basis. The reconciliation of 2018 guidance is to the midpoint of the guidance range.
