  • Net income grew 22% year-over-year to $9.5 million
  • Diluted earnings per share increased 27% year-over-year to $0.14
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 9% year-over-year to $20.1 million, or 42% of revenues (see "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures")
  • Deferred revenue totaled $66.8 million, an 11% increase from June 30, 2011

NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dice Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DHX), a leading provider of specialized career websites for professional communities, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Second Quarter Operating Results

Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 totaled $48.5 million, an increase of 8% from $44.9 million in the comparable quarter of 2011.  Recruitment activity was varied by service and geography throughout the second quarter.  Dice.com's revenues increased 14% year-over-year, while Rigzone grew 25% year-over-year.  Those increases were partially offset by a revenue decline of 15% year-over-year at eFinancialCareers. 

Operating income increased 26% to $15.7 million in the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $12.5 million earned in the same quarter of 2011.  Operating expenses were up slightly for the quarter to $32.8 million, with cash expenses increasing 7% year-over-year due to continued investments in product development and marketing. 

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 grew 22% year-over-year to $9.5 million.  Interest expense was negatively impacted by the write-off of the remaining deferred financing costs from our previous credit facility totaling $0.8 million.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.14 for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 27% from $0.11 diluted earnings per share in the quarter ended June 30, 2011. 

Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $10.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 increased 9% to $20.1 million, as compared with $18.5 million for the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA equaled 42% of revenues in the second quarter of 2012, compared to 41% of revenues in the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.  See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Operating Segment Results

For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, Tech & Clearance segment revenues increased 14% year-over-year to $32.2 million, or 67% of Dice Holdings' consolidated revenues.  Growth was driven by a 10% increase year-over-year in the average number of recruitment package customers served, as well as a 5% increase in the average monthly revenue generated by those customers.  Revenues from ClearanceJobs.com grew 15% year-over-year. 

Finance segment revenues for the second quarter of 2012 decreased 15% year-over-year to $9.8 million.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues in the second quarter of 2012 by $0.3 million, as compared to the second quarter of 2011.  Recruitment activity in financial services has continued at a slower pace as compared to last year, with Continental Europe continuing to decline. 

The Energy segment grew 25% year-over-year to contribute $5.3 million in revenues in the quarter ended June 30, 2012, accounting for 11% of consolidated revenues.  This result was driven by strong revenue gains in content supported advertising and career center businesses. 

Other segment revenues increased 33% year-over-year to $1.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 from the comparable 2011 period, driven by year-over-year increases in revenues of 43% and 24% at AllHealthcareJobs.com and Targeted Job Fairs respectively.

Six Month Operating Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 increased 11% to $94.6 million, as compared to $85.0 million in the same period in 2011.  Recruitment activity at Dice.com and Rigzone improved compared to the first half of 2011.  Currency translation from pound sterling to U.S. dollars negatively impacted revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 by $0.4 million from the comparable 2011 period. 

By segment, Tech and Clearances revenues increased 17% to $63.3 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2012.  In the same period, the Finance segment contributed revenues of $19.8 million, a decrease of 11% from the six month period ended June 30, 2011.  Energy segment revenues increased 28% to $9.3 million.  Other revenues increased 35% to $2.2 million.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 increased 26% to $18.1 million, as compared to $14.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011.  

For the six month period ended June 30, 2012, net cash provided by operating activities totaled $34.2 million.  Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2012 increased 12% to $38.7 million, as compared with $34.4 million for the same period in 2011. See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Balance Sheet

Deferred revenue at June 30, 2012 was $66.8 million compared to $60.0 million at June 30, 2011 and $69.7 million at March 31, 2012.  The 11% or $6.8 million year-over-year increase was primarily driven by increases in our Dice and Rigzone services.  

Net Cash, defined as cash and cash equivalents and investments less total debt, was $41.5 million at June 30, 2012, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $56.5 million minus total debt of $15.0 million.  This compares to a Net Cash balance of $54.7 million at March 31, 2012, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and investments of $68.7 million minus total debt of $14.0 million

In June 2012, the Company entered into a new Credit Agreement which provides for a revolving facility of $155.0 million maturing in June 2017.  Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at the Company's option, at a LIBOR rate or a base rate plus a margin. The margin ranges from 1.75% to 2.50% on LIBOR loans and 0.75% to 1.50% on base rate loans, determined by the Company's most recent consolidated leverage ratio. Loans under the facility may be prepaid at any time without penalty.

Share Repurchase

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company purchased 2,299,887 shares of its common stock on the open market pursuant to its stock repurchase plans at an average cost of $9.74 per share, for a total of approximately $22.4 million.

Recent Events

On June 29, 2012, the Company purchased the assets of FINS.com and entered into an exclusive agreement with Dow Jones & Company to provide and operate the online career centers for WSJ.com and MarketWatch.com in the United States.

Management Comments

Scot Melland, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The quarter was tougher than we expected with softer new business in our small to mid-sized customer segment and weaker recruiting activity in financial services. We offset some of these headwinds as large customers increased their service levels with Dice, and Rigzone continued its strong growth." Mr. Melland added, "We continue to improve our services by adding more content and functionality, like the new talent communities on Dice and more regional content on Rigzone. Our primary focus continues to be on efficiently connecting highly-skilled professionals to hiring managers and recruiters."

Mike Durney, Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our model continues to deliver strong profitability, with Adjusted EBITDA margins at 42% in the second quarter, even as we continue to invest in our businesses.   For example, we are starting to see the results of having new dedicated Rigzone resources in the major oil producing regions. We do, though, continue to experience timing differences in spending as compared to our plan and to benefit from efficiencies that we've built into our operations." 

Business Outlook

The Company is providing a current, point-in-time view of estimated financial performance based on what it sees as of July 25, 2012 for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 and year ending December 31, 2012.  The Company's actual performance will vary based on a number of factors including those that are outlined in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 in the sections entitled "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." In addition, for a description of Adjusted EBITDA as used below, see "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as additional information for its operating results.  These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures reported by other companies.  The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock based compensation expense, and other non-recurring income or expense ("Adjusted EBITDA"), free cash flow, net cash and net debt, provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations.  In addition, the Company's management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company and for budgeting and planning purposes.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by management to measure operating performance.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure for internal monitoring and planning, including preparation of annual budgets, analyzing investment decisions and evaluating profitability and performance comparisons between us and our competitors.  The Company also uses this measure to calculate amounts of performance based compensation under the senior management incentive bonus program.  Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in our Credit Agreement, represents net income (loss) plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income (loss)) interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, losses resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business, certain writeoffs in connection with indebtedness, impairment charges with respect to long-lived assets, expenses incurred in connection with an equity offering, extraordinary or non-recurring non-cash expenses or losses, transaction costs in connection with the Credit Agreement up to $250,000, deferred revenues written off in connection with acquisition purchase accounting adjustments, writeoff of non-cash stock compensation expense, and business interruption insurance proceeds, minus (to the extent included in calculating such net income (loss)) non-cash income or gains, interest income, and any income or gain resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business. 

We consider Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, to be an important indicator to investors because it provides information related to our ability to provide cash flows to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and to fund future growth as well as to monitor compliance with financial covenants.  We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides our board of directors, management and investors with additional information to measure our performance, provide comparisons from period to period and company to company by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense) and tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses), and to estimate our value. 

We present Adjusted EBITDA because covenants in our Credit Agreement contain ratios based on this measure.  Our Credit Agreement is material to us because it is one of our primary sources of liquidity.  If our Adjusted EBITDA were to decline below certain levels, covenants in our Credit Agreement that are based on Adjusted EBITDA may be violated and could cause a default and acceleration of payment obligations under our Credit Agreement.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our profitability or liquidity.

Free Cash Flow

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. We believe free cash flow is an important non-GAAP measure as it provides useful cash flow information regarding our ability to service, incur or pay down indebtedness or repurchase our common stock.  We use free cash flow as a measure to reflect cash available to service our debt as well as to fund our expenditures.  A limitation of using free cash flow versus the GAAP measure of net cash provided by operating activities is that free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance from operations for the period since it includes cash used for capital expenditures during the period.

Net Cash/Net Debt

Net Cash is defined as cash and cash equivalents and investments less total debt. Net Debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents and investments. We consider Net Cash and Net Debt to be important measures of liquidity and indicators of our ability to meet ongoing obligations.  We also use Net Cash and Net Debt, among other measures, in evaluating our choices for capital deployment.  Net Cash and Net Debt presented herein are non-GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and oral statements made from time to time by our representatives contains forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on those statements because they are subject to numerous uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Forward-looking statements include information without limitation concerning our possible or assumed future results of operations, including descriptions of our business strategy. These statements often include words such as "may," "will," "should," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate" or similar expressions.  These statements are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our experience in the industry as well as our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results or results of operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  These factors include, but are not limited to, competition from existing and future competitors in the highly competitive market in which we operate, failure to adapt our business model to keep pace with rapid changes in the recruiting and career services business, failure to maintain and develop our reputation and brand recognition, failure to increase or maintain the number of customers who purchase recruitment packages, cyclicality or downturns in the economy or industries we serve, failure to attract qualified professionals to our websites or grow the number of qualified professionals who use our websites, failure to successfully identify or integrate acquisitions, U.S. and foreign government regulation of the Internet and taxation, our ability to borrow funds under our revolving credit facility or refinance our indebtedness and restrictions on our current and future operations under such indebtedness.  These factors and others are discussed in more detail in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which are available on the Investor Relations page of our website at www.diceholdingsinc.com, including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, under the headings "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by the Company or its representatives herein, or elsewhere, speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and it is impossible to predict these events or how they may affect us. We have no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof, except as required by federal securities laws.
