Delivers 9% Sequential Quarter Revenue Growth and Buys Back $2.9 Million of Stock

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX), today announced revenue and earnings for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Financial highlights for the second quarter include:

  • Revenue grew 9% year-on-year in the Company's Global Language and Content (GLC) segment, led by ongoing marketing services growth within several large existing clients as well as new engagements during the quarter with clients outside of the Company's top ten accounts. 
  • GAAP net income of $3.8 million, or $0.06 per share, based on 63.4 million weighted average fully diluted common shares outstanding.  GAAP net income increased $1.9 million, or $0.03 per share, sequentially compared to Q1 2014 and increased $0.3 million, or $0.00 per share, year-on-year compared to Q2 2013. 
  • Non-GAAP adjusted earnings of $7.5 million or $0.12 per share.  The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted earnings as net income excluding merger, restructuring and acquisition-related charges, asset impairment costs, stock-based compensation, and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets.  Please see the section of this release entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the attached table for details and reconciliations of this measure to the comparable GAAP measure. 
  • Cash flow from operations of $7.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014.
  • During the quarter, the Company acquired 505,000 shares of its common stock under its share repurchase program for an aggregate purchase price of $2.9 million

The Company secured several significant new customer engagements in the quarter, including a market-leading global consulting firm, a global aerospace and defense company, and the games division of a large eCommerce company.

Lionbridge was also recently named the world's number one language services company by independent market research firm Common Sense Advisory (CSA Research) based on size, revenue and service mix.

"Our solid second quarter results reflect ongoing revenue growth, particularly in our translation and marketing business.  We are expanding our large accounts with ongoing growth in our marketing services offerings. Our new onDemand customer engagement model is scaling.  And we continue to execute on our strategy to expand our business across new end markets," said Rory Cowan, CEO of Lionbridge.  "Despite potential hesitation within our largest account and related short-term slowdowns in our testing segment, we expect solid revenue, earnings and cash flow in the second half of 2014 with acceleration in 2015."

Lionbridge provided an outlook for Q3 of 2014 with estimated revenue of $124-127 million.

Lionbridge management will conduct a conference call at 9:00 a.m. ET this morning to discuss financial performance for the quarter and other matters, including matters related to its future performance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this release, the Company's adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations. These measures are presented because management believes they provide additional information to investors with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities. "Adjusted earnings" and "Adjusted Earnings per Share (EPS)" are Non-GAAP financial measures and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance. Management believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for these measures are net income and diluted net income per share and has provided a reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share at the end of this release.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps.
