HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2015-- Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today reported second quarter adjusted EBITDA of $22.6 million, a 55.5% increase over the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted net income was $10.8 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.42, a 110.0% increase over the second quarter of 2014. Reported second quarter GAAP net income and earnings per share were $7.3 million and $0.29, respectively.

Second Quarter Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2015 increased 11.2% over the second quarter of 2014. The average number of worksite employees paid per month increased 11.6% during the quarter, an acceleration from the 9.2% year-over-year growth in the first quarter of 2015. All three drivers to worksite employee growth including sales, client retention and net hiring in our client base, improved over the second quarter of 2014.

“Our second quarter results reflect successful execution of our 2015 plan to accelerate growth while carefully managing operating costs,” said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief executive officer. “We expect to continue positive trends in growth and profitability over the balance of this year.”

Adjusted EBITDA increased 55.5% on a 9.2% increase in gross profit and a less than 1% increase in operating expenses over the 2014 period, reflecting planned operating leverage.

Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, adjusted EBITDA increased 66.9% to $64.9 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 100.0% to $1.28. Reported 2015 GAAP net income was $21.1 million, or $0.83 per share.

Revenues in the first six months of 2015 were $1.3 billion, an increase of 10.5% over the 2014 period on a 10.4% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per month. Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased 16.1% to $234.1 million, while adjusted operating expenses increased only 3.6% to $185.7 million.

Cash outlays in the first six months of 2015 included the repurchase of 645,292 shares of stock at a cost of $33.5 million, dividends totaling $10.4 million and capital expenditures of $5.9 million.

“In spite of recently increasing our dividend rate by 16% and being more aggressive in our share buybacks, our strong cash flow has resulted in a $6.2 million increase in adjusted working capital over Dec. 31, 2014 to $79.3 million at June 30, 2015,” said Douglas S. Sharp, senior vice president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer. “Our outlook for continued strong cash flow positions us well to execute on our strategic plan and continue our track record of significant returns to stockholders.”

The company also announced its updated guidance for 2015, including guidance for the third quarter of 2015.

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) 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; (v) failure to manage growth of our operations and the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts; (vi) the impact of the competitive environment in the PEO industry on our growth and/or profitability; (vii) our liability for worksite employee payroll, payroll taxes and benefits costs; (viii) our liability for disclosure of sensitive or private information; (ix) our ability to integrate or realize expected returns on our acquisitions; (x) failure of our information technology systems; (xi) an adverse final judgment or settlement of claims against Insperity; and (xii) 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.

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common stock represent net income and diluted net income per share computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding the impact of non-cash impairment and other charges related to the valuation of aircraft held for sale in 2015 and an impairment charge associated with the Employment Screening reporting unit in 2014, stock-based compensation and costs associated with stockholder advisory expenses. 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 working capital, 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 working capital, 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.
