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

  • 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.
