WASHINGTON, Sept. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBEX Limited (“ibex”), a leading global provider in business process outsourcing and end-to-end customer engagement technology solutions, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2022.

“Fiscal year 2022 was a great year for ibex with record revenues, adjusted EBITDA, EPS, free cash flow and new client revenue,” said Bob Dechant, CEO of ibex. “Our momentum continues to build. We have delivered three consecutive quarters of accelerated revenue growth and our adjusted EBITDA margins continued to expand over the same period. Revenue generated from our BPO 2.0 clients won since fiscal year 2016 grew 49% this fiscal year and represented 69% of total revenue. Our success in winning new clients and navigating the global pandemic demonstrates our ability to win across all key verticals and be disruptive as a leader in the market.”

Dechant continued, “The fourth quarter was a very strong quarter for ibex with organic revenue growth of 13.6%, record adjusted EBITDA margin of 15.1% and generating over $25 million in free cash flow. We accomplished these results while at the same time exiting away from a low-margin legacy client and strategically transitioning our agents to a new, high growth HealthTech client. Although we incurred costs associated with the transition in the quarter, we believe we are in a great position starting Q1 of FY23 to realize immediate and long term benefits from this pivot.”

“Looking ahead, we are confident in our ability to continue to win business as clients look to outsource more in a turbulent market. We expect to surpass our historical 10% revenue growth rate with continued margin expansion, as we utilize capacity created with the roll-off of social distancing in our centers. Despite challenges in the macro environment, we believe we are well positioned for a strong first quarter and fiscal year 2023,” concluded Mr. Dechant.

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2022 Highlights
Business Highlights

  • Won 4 new logos in the quarter across key verticals.

  • The FinTech & HealthTech verticals, where we made strategic investments in early fiscal year 2020, increased significantly to 30.4% of total revenue in the fourth quarter, compared to 20.6% of total revenue in the prior year quarter.

  • Approximately 10,000 seats of additional capacity became available as a result of removing social distancing requirements.

Revenue

  • Revenue increased 13.6% to $123.7 million, compared to $108.9 million in the prior year quarter.

  • Revenue related to our new clients won since fiscal year 2016 grew 43% compared to the prior year quarter and now represents 74% of our quarterly revenue.

Net Income

  • Net income increased to $4.9 million, compared to $4.0 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in net income was primarily driven by stronger operating results, including a decrease in non-recurring costs, and a deferred tax benefit recognized in the current quarter, partially offset by increased depreciation, and a negative impact of fair value measurement of share warrants.

  • Net income margin increased to 4.0%, compared to 3.7% in the prior year quarter.

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income increased to $7.9 million, compared to $5.8 million in the prior year quarter (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income margin increased to 6.4%, compared to 5.3% in the prior year quarter (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA increased to $18.7 million, compared to $15.9 million in the prior year quarter (see Exhibit 2 for reconciliation).

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 15.1%, compared to 14.6% in the prior year quarter (see Exhibit 2 for reconciliation).

Earnings Per Share

  • IFRS basic and fully diluted earnings per share increased to $0.27 and $0.26, respectively, compared to $0.22 and $0.21 in the prior year quarter.

  • Non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per share increased to $0.42, compared to $0.31 in the prior year quarter (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

Cash flow

  • Cash flow from operations increased to $27.8 million, compared to $1.8 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to improved collections, stronger operating results, including lower non-recurring expenses, and lower cash taxes.

  • Free cash flow for the fourth quarter increased to $25.1 million, compared to ($3.2) million in the prior year quarter.

  • DSOs were 55 days in the fourth quarter, down 1 day compared to prior year, and down 5 days sequentially.

Fiscal Year 2022 Highlights
Business Highlights

  • Won 23 new clients, primarily in the HealthTech, Retail & E-Commerce, Travel, Transportation & Logistics, and Technology verticals.

  • We continued to improve our client diversification, including increases in the HealthTech and FinTech and Retail and E-Commerce verticals.

  • Added over 3,400 seats in high margin nearshore and offshore locations.

Revenue

  • Revenue increased 11.2% to $493.6 million, compared to $443.7 million in the prior year.

  • Revenue growth was primarily driven by strength in our HealthTech, Retail & E-Commerce, Travel and Transportation & Logistics verticals.

  • The Telecom vertical now represents 18.1% of our annual revenue, compared to 29.3% in the prior year, as we continue diversifying our client base.

Net Income

  • Net income increased to $23.0 million, compared to $2.8 million in the prior year. The improvement was primarily due to the positive impact of the fair value adjustment on share warrants, decreases in non-recurring costs and share-based payments expense, and a deferred tax benefit, partially offset by higher depreciation related to our capacity expansion over the last two years.

  • Net income margin increased to 4.7%, compared to 0.6% in the prior year.

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income increased to $24.6 million, compared to $23.6 million in the prior year (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income margin was 5.0%, compared to 5.3% in the prior year (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA increased to $66.8 million, compared to $66.2 million in the prior year (see Exhibit 2 for reconciliation).

  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.5%, compared to 14.9% in the prior year (see Exhibit 2 for reconciliation).

Earnings Per Share

  • Fully diluted earnings per share increased to $1.23, compared to $0.15 in the prior year.

  • Non-GAAP fully diluted adjusted earnings per share increased to $1.32, compared to $1.28 in the prior year (see Exhibit 1 for reconciliation).

Cash flow and balance sheet

  • Cash flow from operations increased to $50.1 million, compared to $25.9 million in the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by improvements in operating results and working capital, along with lower non-recurring expenses and cash taxes paid in fiscal year 2022.

  • Capex was $25.9 million compared to $20.8 million in the prior year.

  • Full year free cash flow increased to $24.2 million, compared to $5.1 million in the prior year.

  • Cash and cash equivalents were $48.8 million and availability on our revolving credit facilities was $50.5 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to cash and cash equivalents of $57.8 million and availability on our revolving credit facilities of $33.6 million as of June 30, 2021.

  • Total borrowings were $15.0 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to total borrowings of $28.5 million as of June 30, 2021.

First Quarter and Fiscal Year 2023 Business Outlook

  • First quarter 2023 organic revenue of $124 million to $127 million with midpoint growth of 15.6% versus the prior year quarter.

  • First quarter 2023 adjusted EBITDA of $16.5 million to $18.5 million with midpoint margin of 13.9%.

  • Fiscal year 2023 organic revenue between $545 million and $555 million with midpoint growth of 11.4% versus fiscal year 2022.

  • Fiscal year adjusted EBITDA of $77 million to $79 million with midpoint margin of 14.2%.

  • Fiscal year 2023 capex of $18 million to $22 million.

“While we have not given quarterly guidance in the past, we are choosing to provide guidance on a one-off basis for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 due to the volatility that exists in today’s markets,” said CFO Karl Gabel.

Financial Information

This announcement does not contain sufficient information to constitute an interim financial report as defined in International Accounting Standards 34, “Interim Financial Reporting.” The financial information in this press release has not been audited.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they and other similar measures are widely used by certain investors, securities analysts and other interested parties as supplemental measures of performance and liquidity. We also use these measures internally to establish forecasts, budgets and operational goals to manage and monitor our business, as well as evaluate our underlying historical performance, as we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more accurate depiction of the performance of the business by encompassing only relevant and manageable events, enabling us to evaluate and plan more effectively for the future. The non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies, have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under IFRS as issued by the IASB. Non-GAAP financial measures and ratios are not measurements of our performance, financial condition or liquidity under IFRS as issued by the IASB and should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit or net income or as alternatives to cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities for the period, or any other performance measures, derived in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB or any other generally accepted accounting principles.

ibex is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable IFRS measure because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain significant items without unreasonable effort. These items include, but are not limited to, non-recurring expenses, fair value adjustments, and share-based compensation expense. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on IFRS reported results for the guidance period.

About ibex

ibex helps the world’s preeminent brands more effectively engage their customers with services ranging from customer support, technical support, inbound/outbound sales, business intelligence and analytics, digital demand generation, and CX surveys and feedback analytics.

Forward Looking Statements

In addition to historical information, this release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “expect,” “predict,” “potential,” or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions. These statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our future financial and operating performance, including our outlook and guidance, and our strategies, priorities and business plans. Our expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Factors that could impact our actual results include: developments relating to COVID-19; our ability to attract new business and retain key clients; our ability to enter into multi-year contracts with our clients at appropriate rates; the potential for our clients or potential clients to consolidate; our clients deciding to enter into or further expand their insourcing activities; our ability to operate as an integrated company under the ibex brand; our ability to manage portions of our business that have long sales cycles and long implementation cycles that require significant resources and working capital; our ability to manage our international operations, particularly in Pakistan and the Philippines and increasingly in Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Honduras; our ability to comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those regarding privacy, data protection and information security; our ability to manage the inelasticity of our labor costs relative to short-term movements in client demand; our ability to realize the anticipated strategic and financial benefits of our relationship with Amazon; our ability to recruit, engage, motivate, manage and retain our global workforce; our ability to anticipate, develop and implement information technology solutions that keep pace with evolving industry standards and changing client demands; our ability to maintain and enhance our reputation and brand; and other factors discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on October 14, 2021 and any other risk factors we include in subsequent reports on Form 6-K. Because of these uncertainties, you should not make any investment decisions based on our estimates and forward-looking statements. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this press release whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Reconciliation of IFRS Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EXHIBIT 1: Adjusted net income and adjusted fully diluted earnings per share

We define “adjusted net income” as net income before the effect of the following items: non-recurring expenses (including severance expense, litigation and settlement expenses, costs related to COVID-19, and listing costs, as applicable), amortization of warrant asset, foreign currency translation gains or losses, fair value measurement of share warrants, share-based payments, gain or loss on disposal of fixed assets and/or lease terminations, and impairment of intangibles, as applicable, net of the tax impact of such adjustments.

EXHIBIT 2: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
We define “EBITDA” as net income before the effect of the following items: finance expenses (including finance expense related to right-of-use lease liabilities), income tax (benefit) / expense, and depreciation and amortization (including depreciation of right-of-use assets). We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as EBITDA before the effect of the following items: non-recurring expenses (including severance expense, litigation and settlement expenses, costs related to COVID-19, and listing costs, as applicable), amortization of warrant asset, foreign currency translation gains or losses, fair value measurement of share warrants, share-based payments, gain or loss on disposal of fixed assets and/or lease terminations, and impairment of intangibles, as applicable.

We believe it is useful to consider these payments when analyzing free cash flow as these amounts directly relate to revenue generating assets used in operations.
