HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2016-- Insperity, Inc. (NYSE:NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today reported second quarter net income and diluted earnings per share of $9.7 million and $0.45, respectively, which represent increases of 33% and 55% compared to the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was $25.6 million, a 13% increase over the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income was $12.9 million, an increase of 19% over the second quarter of 2015, and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.60, a 43% increase over the second quarter of 2015.

“Our second quarter results and outlook for the last half of 2016 validate that the execution of our strategic plan is producing exceptional growth and profitability,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “This performance combined with our competitive position and ability to grow our team of Business Performance Advisors gives us confidence as we look ahead to 2017.”

Second Quarter Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2016 increased 13% over the second quarter of 2015 on a 14% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per month. The worksite employee growth was the result of strong new client sales driven by a 15% increase in the number of trained Business Performance Advisors, and continuing high level of client retention, which averaged over 99% during the second quarter.

As expected, gross profit increased 9% over the second quarter of 2015 reflecting client and product mix changes and the seasonality associated with payroll taxes and benefit plan selection. Operating expenses increased 6% and declined on a per worksite employee per month basis from $215 in the second quarter of 2015 to $198 due to recent cost savings initiatives and the inherent leverage of our cost structure.

“Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA increased from $77 to $90 per worksite employee per month, 17% over 2015, as we have effectively managed worksite employee growth and gross profit in combination with our operating costs,” said Douglas S. Sharp, senior vice president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer. “This high level of unit profitability combined with our double digit worksite employee growth has resulted in a 34% increase in adjusted EBITDA over the first six months of 2015.”

Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, reported 2016 net income was $42.4 million, or $1.98 per diluted share, and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 74% to $2.23.

Revenues for the first six months of 2016 totaled $1.5 billion, an increase of 14% over the 2015 period. Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2016 increased 12% to $263.3 million. Operating expenses decreased 2% to $194.2 million in 2016, while adjusted operating expenses increased only 4% to $193.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA increased 34% to $86.8 million.

Cash outlays in the first six months of 2016 included the repurchase of 3.1 million shares of stock at a cost of $149.1 million, dividends totaling $10.0 million and capital expenditures of $12.6 million.

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.

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.

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.
