"We are very pleased with the progress we made in delivering against our financial priorities in 2018, particularly the turning point reached in our ongoing tech-focused revenues1," said Luc Gregoire, Chief Financial Officer. "Our efficiency initiatives also drove improved margins over the past few quarters, even as we invested in our business. We are seeing this positive momentum carry into 2019, where we expect to pivot to top-line growth and improved profitability."

Quarterly Business Highlights

Dice

  • Completed migration of 76% of Dice customers to TalentSearch with Intellisearch, with positive feedback and a double digit increase in usage.

ClearanceJobs

  • Launched Next Generation, a new platform that helps recruiters source and engage cleared talent quickly through sophisticated technology and communications tools. Next Generation includes large-scale improvements to user workflows, a fully re-designed messenger app that includes live chat and deeper integration of ClearanceJobs Voice.
  • Continued to outperform all financial and operational goals, as well as hitting a new record for job postings and candidate connections in the fourth quarter. A key driver of ClearanceJobs' success is its unique user experience with high levels of interaction, which doesn't exist anywhere else in the market for connecting specialized, hard-to-find and skilled talent to employers.

eFinancialCareers

  • Made solid progress with its Matchback program. This program works with bank human resource leaders to directly tie the hires they make to applications processed on eFinancialCareers' platform. For example, the eFinancialCareers team demonstrated to a Global 500 bank that eFinancialCareers had sourced 1,352 hires to the bank in eighteen months, saving the equivalent of $30 million in search fees.

(3) See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" later in this press release.

(4) Reconciliations of Revenues to Adjusted Revenues and Net Income, Operating Income, and Operating Cash Flows to Adjusted EBITDA are included toward the end of this press release.

Revenues

Revenues were $38.0 million for the 2018 fourth quarter, 25% lower year over year. This decrease was  attributable to the divestitures of the Company's non-tech businesses and the closure of Dice Europe.

Ongoing tech-focused revenues1 were unchanged year over year, due to a further narrowing of the rate of decline in Dice3 revenues, another quarter of record revenues in ClearanceJobs and modestly increased revenues in eFinancialCareers, excluding foreign exchange.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were $35.6 million for the fourth quarter, a $13.3 million, or 27%, year over year reduction, of which $10.6 million was attributable to the effect of the Company's divestitures of its non-core businesses and $1.7 million was attributable to Dice Europe. The remainder of the decrease was primarily driven by lower marketing and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by increased general and administrative expenses, mainly due to consulting fees related to our expense reduction strategy.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter was a net benefit of $1.3 million, driven mainly by the reversal of $1.6 million of unrecognized tax benefits upon the conclusion of audits and the expiration of certain statutes of limitation.

Net Income

Net income for the fourth quarter was $2.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. This result includes the adverse effect of $2.4 million of disposition related and other costs, which was offset by beneficial income tax items in the quarter, including the unrecognized net tax benefit reversal described in the Income Tax Expense section above.

Operating Net Cash Flows

Operating net cash flows were $6.2 million for the fourth quarter, a decrease of $1.0 million year over year. This result was driven by a combination of lower income from the Company's tech-focused1 and divested businesses along with changes the Company made to its billing terms, partially offset by tighter vendor payment management.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin2

Adjusted EBITDA2 excludes the effects of the Company's divested businesses, disposition-related and other costs, and loss on sale of businesses from both the current and prior year periods. This presentation provides for better comparability of results.

Adjusted EBITDA2 for the quarter was $8.3 million for a margin2 of 22%, compared to $7.6 million and 19%, respectively, for the 2017 fourth quarter. The 2017 fourth quarter included the effect of Dice Europe, which had a negative impact on the margin.

Capital

Weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the fourth quarter was 49.5 million. In May 2018, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program that permits the purchase of up to $7 million of the Company's common stock. Under the plan, management has discretion in determining the conditions under which shares may be purchased. During the 2018 fourth quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 684,000 shares under this authorization, for a cumulative total of approximately 1.1 million shares since the repurchase program was authorized. The authorization will remain in effect until May 2019, unless terminated earlier by the Company, and approximately $5.0 million remains of the original authorization amount.

Repurchases will be made in accordance with applicable securities laws in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or through other means. Depending on acquisition opportunities, market conditions and other factors, these repurchases may commence or cease from time to time without prior notice.

Business Outlook

Looking ahead, the Company believes that its ongoing tech-focused business1 will achieve modest year over year revenue growth beginning in the first half of 2019, which should improve as the year progresses. The Company further anticipates that Dice3 will turn to positive year over year revenue growth in the 2019 second half. This year, the Company expects to make further progress on rationalizing its expenses, while at the same time investing prudently for growth, which should enable the Company to maintain its current level of Adjusted EBITDA margin in the first half and gradually begin to increase its margin in the second half. The Company is unable to provide guidance for net income because it cannot reasonably assess the impact of stock-based compensation and income tax expense.

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as additional information for its operating results.  These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measurements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures reported by other companies.  The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted Revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock based compensation expense, other non-recurring income or expense ("Adjusted EBITDA") and Adjusted EBITDA margin provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the Company's management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company and for budgeting and planning purposes.  The non-GAAP measures apply to consolidated results and results by segment or other measure as shown within this document.  The Company has provided required reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures elsewhere in the document.

Adjusted Revenues 
Adjusted Revenues is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance. Adjusted Revenues represents Revenues less the revenues of divested businesses. We consider Adjusted Revenues to be an important measure to evaluate the performance of our ongoing businesses and provide comparable results excluding our divestitures.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin 
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP metrics used by management to measure operating performance.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure for internal monitoring and planning, including preparation of annual budgets, analyzing investment decisions and evaluating profitability and performance comparisons between us and our competitors.  The Company also uses this measure to calculate amounts of performance based compensation under the senior management incentive bonus program.  Adjusted EBITDA represents net income plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income) interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock based compensation, losses resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business including prior negative operating results of those businesses, certain writeoffs in connection with indebtedness, impairment charges with respect to long-lived assets, expenses incurred in connection with an equity offering or any other offering of securities by the Company, extraordinary or non-recurring non-cash expenses or losses, transaction costs in connection with the credit agreement, deferred revenues written off in connection with acquisition purchase accounting adjustments, writeoff of non-cash stock compensation expense, severance and retention costs related to dispositions and reorganizations of the Company, losses related to legal claims and fees that are unusual in nature or infrequent, minus (to the extent included in calculating such net income) non-cash income or gains, interest income, business interruption insurance proceeds, and any income or gain resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business, including prior positive operating results of those divested businesses, and gains related to legal claims that are unusual in nature or infrequent.

The Company modified its definition of Adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter of 2018 to also exclude severance and retention costs related to dispositions or reorganizations of the Company, the prior operating results of divested businesses, and losses related to legal claims and fees that are unusual in nature or infrequent.  The Company changed its definition of Adjusted EBITDA to provide a more transparent and comparable view of its financial performance.  Accordingly, all prior periods presented have been recast to reflect the current definition.

We also consider Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, to be an important indicator to investors because it provides information related to our ability to provide cash flows to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and to fund future growth. We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides our board of directors, management and investors with additional information to measure our performance, provide comparisons from period to period and company to company by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense) and tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses), and to estimate our value.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is computed as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Adjusted Revenues. Adjusted Revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, revenue or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our profitability.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and oral statements made from time to time by our representatives contain forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on those statements because they are subject to numerous uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, information concerning our possible or assumed future results of operations. These statements often include words such as "may," "will," "should," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate" or similar expressions.  These statements are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our experience in the industry as well as our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results or results of operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  These factors include, but are not limited to, our ability to execute our tech-focused strategy, competition from existing and future competitors in the highly competitive market in which we operate, failure to adapt our business model to keep pace with rapid changes in the recruiting and career services business, failure to maintain and develop our reputation and brand recognition, failure to increase or maintain the number of customers who purchase recruitment packages, cyclicality or downturns in the economy or industries we serve, the uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom's future departure from the European Union, including uncertainty in respect of the regulation of data protection and data privacy, failure to attract qualified professionals to our websites or grow the number of qualified professionals who use our websites, failure to successfully identify or integrate acquisitions, U.S. and foreign government regulation of the Internet and taxation, our ability to borrow funds under our revolving credit facility or refinance our indebtedness and restrictions on our current and future operations under such indebtedness.  These factors and others are discussed in more detail in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which are available on the Investors page of our website at www.dhigroupinc.com, including the Company's most recently filed periodic reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and subsequent filings under the headings "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by the Company or its representatives herein, or elsewhere, speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and it is impossible to predict these events or how they may affect us. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof, except as required by federal securities laws.
