Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, today announced results for the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Highlights – Three Months Ended June 30, 2014

  • US GAAP revenue amounted to $112.3 million, an increase of 34% year over year.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) adjusted for stock based compensation and for change in fair value of contingent consideration was $19.1 million and EBITDA margin was 17%, compared to $14.4 million and 17.1%, respectively, in the year-ago quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 32.6% year over year and net income increased 28.6% year over year.
  • Diluted earnings per share (EPS) on a US GAAP basis was $0.38, compared to $0.32 in the year-ago quarter.
  • Diluted EPS on a non-GAAP basis was $0.45, compared to $0.36 in the year-ago quarter.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased to $112.3 million, up 34% from $83.8 million for the same period a year ago. EBITDA adjusted for stock based compensation and for change in fair value of contingent consideration was $19.1 million and corresponding EBITDA margin was 17%, as compared to $14.4 million and 17.1%, respectively, in the year-ago quarter. US GAAP net income was $12.6 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to $9.8 million and $0.32 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP Net Income was $14.6 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared to $11.1 million and $0.36 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Reconciliations between non-GAAP financial measures and US GAAP operating results and diluted EPS are included at the end of this release.

“I am pleased to report that it was one of the record first quarters in the history of the company. We experienced strong demand for our services, substantial portion of which was driven by Luxoft’s award-winning solutions, especially among financial services and automotive clients,” said Dmitry Loschinin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have acquired great logos across all verticals, including new High Potential Accounts in Financial Services and Automotive. We are also very excited about our most recent acquisition – Populus Suite, which solidified our HMI offering for the automotive OEMs and our overall positioning in that segment. Finally, our Global Upgrade Program, which was launched early in the quarter, is progressing smoothly. During the first quarter we grew our presence in EU locations, opened a new delivery center in Detroit, Michigan, and made progress in rebalancing the locations of our critical staff. We are encouraged to see a mix of our ongoing strong business dynamic, overall demand for IT services among our customer base, and current opportunities in the pipeline; therefore, we are increasing our revenue guidance for the year ending March 31, 2015 to at least 22% year over year growth.”

The core revenue generating geographies experienced double digit growth during the past quarter, as compared to the same period a year ago: revenues generated in the U.S. increased 33%, revenues generated in the U.K. increased 44% and revenues generated in Germany increased 36%. As of June 30, 2014, the total number of employees was 7,777, while attrition continued to decrease.

Outlook for The Year Ending March 31, 2015:

The Company is increasing its original revenue and Non-GAAP guidance and providing the following for the financial year ending March 31, 2015:

  • Revenue is expected to reach at least $486.0 million, an increase of at least 22.0% year over year, compared to at least $478.0 million, an increase of at least 20.0% year over year.
  • EBITDA margin adjusted for stock-based compensation is expected to be in the range of 17.0% - 19.0%.
  • Diluted EPS guidance is expected to stay at the same level of at least $1.80 on a US GAAP basis; the guidance is being raised to at least $1.95 on a non-GAAP basis, compared to at least $1.90 previously.
  • EPS is based on an estimated weighted average of 32,840,105 diluted shares.

“We have been enjoying a strong operational and financial momentum, which, in our view, underlines resilience of our business model,“ said Roman Yakushkin, Chief Financial Officer. “We believe that the Company continues to grow substantially faster than the overall custom application and software development segment as our clients focus on bringing essential innovation to market in the shortest possible time. They also increasingly prefer executing complex engagements in a fixed price, managed delivery format. This was another quarter of robust growth across our key geographies. During the first quarter of financial year ending March 31, 2015, the revenue growth dynamic has continued to stay ahead of the delivery headcount growth, while we continued to maintain low attrition and solid revenue per delivery employee.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with US GAAP, this press release includes the following measures defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as non-GAAP financial measures: earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA); adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP net income; and non-GAAP diluted Earnings per share (EPS). Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of fair value adjustments to intangible assets and impairment thereof and other acquisitions related costs, that may include changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities. Non-GAAP diluted EPS are calculated as non-GAAP net income divided by weighted average number of diluted shares. We provide these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they present a better measure of our core business and management uses them internally to evaluate our ongoing performance. Accordingly, we believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enhancing and understanding of our operating performance. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable US GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between US GAAP and non-GAAP results are provided in the accompanying tables at the end of this press release.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
