Insperity Announces Record First Quarter Results
  • Q1 adjusted EPS up 90% to $1.63
  • Q1 adjusted EBITDA increases 45% to $61.2 million
  • Q1 worksite employee growth accelerates to 15% while adjusted operating expenses increased less than 2%

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2016-- Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today reported first quarter adjusted EBITDA of $61.2 million, a 44.7% increase over the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income was $34.9 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.63, an 89.5% increase over the first quarter of 2015. Reported first quarter GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share were $32.7 million and $1.53, respectively.

“Our excellent first quarter results demonstrate the strength of our business model from accelerating worksite employee growth combined with substantial operating leverage,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “The continuation of strong execution in sales and client retention provides a high-level of confidence in the sustainability of our plan for high growth and profitability throughout 2016 and beyond.”

First Quarter Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2016 increased 14.7% over the first quarter of 2015 on a 14.8% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per month. The continued acceleration of worksite employee growth was primarily the result of improved new client sales and a record level of client retention during our heavy first quarter client renewal period. Client attrition totaled only 7.6% for the quarter. This was a significant improvement over an already favorable trend in which attrition during the first quarter of 2014 and 2015 was 12.8% and 9.9%, respectively.

Gross profit increased 15.5% over the first quarter of 2015 on 14.8% worksite employee growth and effective management of pricing and direct cost trends. Adjusted operating expenses increased less than 2% and included the impact of recent cost savings initiatives and the inherent leverage of our cost structure.

“Our strong cash flow and debt capacity allowed us to successfully execute a dutch auction tender offer, which resulted in the repurchase of approximately 3.0 million shares during the quarter,” said Douglas S. Sharp, senior vice president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer. “We ended the quarter with $40.4 million of adjusted cash and $95.0 million available under our recently increased line of credit.”

The statements contained herein that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws (Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934). You can identify such forward-looking statements by the words “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “believes,” “estimates,” “likely,” “possibly,” “probably,” “goal,” “opportunity,” “objective,” “target,” “assume,” “outlook,” “guidance,” “predicts,” “appears,” “indicator” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties. In the normal course of business, Insperity, Inc., in an effort to help keep our stockholders and the public informed about our operations, may from time to time issue such forward-looking statements, either orally or in writing. Generally, these statements relate to business plans or strategies, projected or anticipated benefits or other consequences of such plans or strategies, or projections involving anticipated revenues, earnings, unit growth, profit per worksite employee, pricing, operating expenses or other aspects of operating results. We base the forward-looking statements on our expectations, estimates and projections at the time such statements are made. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that we cannot predict. In addition, we have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. Therefore, the actual results of the future events described in such forward-looking statements could differ materially from those stated in such forward-looking statements. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are: (i) adverse economic conditions; (ii) regulatory and tax developments and possible adverse application of various federal, state and local regulations; (iii) the ability to secure competitive replacement contracts for health insurance and workers’ compensation insurance at expiration of current contracts; (iv) cancellation of client contracts on short notice, or the inability to renew client contracts or attract new clients; (v) vulnerability to regional economic factors because of our geographic market concentration; (vi) increases in health insurance costs and workers’ compensation rates and underlying claims trends, health care reform, financial solvency of workers’ compensation carriers, other insurers or financial institutions, state unemployment tax rates, liabilities for employee and client actions or payroll-related claims; (vii) failure to manage growth of our operations and the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts; (viii) the impact of the competitive environment in the PEO industry on our growth and/or profitability; (ix) our liability for worksite employee payroll, payroll taxes and benefits costs; (x) our liability for disclosure of sensitive or private information; (xi) our ability to integrate or realize expected returns on our acquisitions; (xii) failure of our information technology systems; (xiii) an adverse final judgment or settlement of claims against Insperity; and (xiv) disruptions to our business resulting from the actions of certain stockholders. These factors are discussed in further detail in Insperity’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Any of these factors, or a combination of such factors, could materially affect the results of our operations and whether forward-looking statements we make ultimately prove to be accurate.

Except to the extent otherwise required by federal securities law, we do not undertake any obligation to update our forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they are made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation Tables

2016   2015   Change
 
Payroll cost (GAAP) $ 3,762,064 $ 3,240,982 16.1 %
Less: Bonus payroll cost 582,312   518,503   12.3 %
Non-bonus payroll cost $ 3,179,752   $ 2,722,479   16.8 %
 
Payroll cost per worksite employee per month (GAAP) $ 7,917 $ 7,831 1.1 %

Non-bonus payroll cost per worksite employee per month $ 6,692   $ 6,578   1.7 %
     

Non-bonus payroll cost represents payroll cost excluding the impact of bonus payrolls paid to the company’s worksite employees. Bonus payroll cost varies from period to period, but has no direct impact to the company’s ultimate workers’ compensation costs under the current program. As a result, Insperity management refers to non-bonus payroll cost in analyzing, reporting and forecasting the company’s workers’ compensation costs.

Adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities excludes funds associated with federal and state income tax withholdings, employment taxes and other payroll deductions, as well as client prepayments. Insperity management believes adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities is a useful measure of the company’s available funds.

Insperity management believes adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share are useful measures of the company’s operating performance in this period, as they allow for additional analysis of the company’s operating results separate from the impact of these items.

Non-bonus payroll, adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, adjusted operating expenses, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common stock are not financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similar measures used by other companies. Non-bonus payroll, adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, adjusted operating expenses, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common stock should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables above.
