HOUSTON, August 02, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today reported results for the second quarter ended Jun. 30, 2021:

  • Q2 average number of WSEEs paid and revenues up 7% and 19%, respectively

  • Q2 net income and diluted EPS of $25.2 million and $0.65, respectively

  • Q2 adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS of $60.2 million and $0.91, respectively

  • YTD net income and diluted EPS of $87.1 million and $2.24, respectively

  • YTD adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS of $164.4 million and $2.72, respectively

Second Quarter Results

The average number of worksite employees ("WSEEs") paid per month in Q2 2021 increased 7% to 243,270 WSEEs. WSEEs paid from new sales and net gains from hiring in our client base drove the accelerated growth above the high end of our expectations. Client retention remained at our historical high levels, averaging 99% for the quarter. Revenues in Q2 2021 increased 19% to $1.2 billion on the 7% increase in paid worksite employees and a 12% increase in revenue per WSEE, which includes a 6% increase in pricing and the non-recurrence of the 2020 FICA deferral credits and customer comprehensive service fee credits.

"We are pleased with our strong results and successful execution of our plan over the first half of this year," said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chief executive officer and chairman. "Over the balance of 2021, we expect to invest and build upon our strong momentum in order to capitalize on our exceptional market opportunity in the years ahead."

Gross profit for Q2 2021 totaled $199.6 million and included the growth in paid worksite employees and revenue per worksite employee above targeted levels and favorable results from our workers’ compensation program. The 9% decline in gross profit from Q2 of the prior year was primarily attributable to unusually low benefit costs in Q2 2020 due to the deferral of care at the onset of the pandemic. In Q2 2021, higher benefit costs were driven by increased utilization of our health plan, including care previously deferred during the height of the pandemic and COVID-19 related vaccination, testing and treatment costs. The impact of these higher benefit costs was partially offset by improved results in our payroll tax area, as state unemployment tax rates received during Q2 came in lower than our estimates and also included the receipt of $11 million of federal payroll tax refunds related to prior years.

Operating expenses increased 12% over Q2 2020, however increased just 8% when excluding performance-based compensation. Second quarter 2021 operating costs reflected continued growth investments, including an increase in marketing costs associated with lead generation activity and our SalesForce implementation. While we have reinstituted travel for certain employees and events, these costs, along with other personnel and G&A costs continue to be managed at historically low levels as the economy and our growth recovers from the pandemic.

For the second quarter of 2021, reported net income and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") were $25.2 million and $0.65, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 35% to $60.2 million and adjusted EPS decreased 41% to $0.91. The year over year earnings comparisons to the second quarter of 2020 reflect unusually low benefits costs in that period due to low utilization of our health plan during the onset of the pandemic.

"We are pleased with our performance throughout the uncertainty of the pandemic, continuing our profitability and reestablishing our growth momentum," said Douglas S. Sharp, Insperity senior vice president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer. "This has positioned us to continue to invest in our long-term growth while providing strong return to our shareholders, including the recent increase in our dividend and our ongoing share repurchase program."

Year-to-Date Results

Revenues for the first six months of 2021 increased 11% to $2.5 billion on a 2% increase in paid worksite employees and a 9% increase in revenue per WSEE. Gross profit for the first six months of 2021 decreased 1% to $451.0 million. Operating expenses increased 12% to $332.0 million over the 2020 period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, reported net income and diluted EPS were $87.1 million and $2.24, respectively. Adjusted EPS decreased 16% over the first six months of 2020 to $2.72. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15% over the first six months of 2020 to $164.4 million.

Net income per WSEE per month decreased 26% from $82 in the 2020 period to $61 in the 2021 period. Adjusted EBITDA per WSEE per month decreased 17% from $138 in the 2020 period to $115 in the 2021 period.

Cash outlays in the first six months of 2021 included the repurchase of approximately 438,000 shares of stock at a cost of $38.5 million, dividends totaling $32.8 million and capital expenditures of $20.7 million. Adjusted cash totaled $213 million at June 30, 2021 and $130 million remains available under our $500 million credit facility.

  • our ability to integrate or realize expected returns on our acquisitions.

These factors are discussed in further detail in Insperity’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Any of these factors, or a combination of such factors, could materially affect the results of our operations and whether forward-looking statements we make ultimately prove to be accurate.

Any forward-looking statements are made only as of the date hereof and, unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)

Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables below.

Non-GAAP Measure

Definition

Benefit of Non-GAAP Measure

Non-bonus payroll cost

Non-bonus payroll cost is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of bonus payrolls paid to our WSEEs.

Bonus payroll cost varies from period to period, but has no direct impact to our ultimate workers’ compensation costs under the current program.

Our management refers to non-bonus payroll cost in analyzing, reporting and forecasting our workers’ compensation costs.

We include these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency related to the costs incurred under our current workers’ compensation program.

Adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities

Excludes funds associated with:

• federal and state income tax withholdings,

• employment taxes,

• other payroll deductions, and

• client prepayments.

We believe that the exclusion of the identified items helps us reflect the fundamentals of our underlying business model and analyze results against our expectations, against prior periods, and to plan for future periods by focusing on our underlying operations. We believe that the adjusted results provide relevant and useful information for investors because they allow investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by management and improves their ability to understand and assess our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is used by our lenders to assess our leverage and ability to make interest payments.

Adjusted operating expenses

Represents operating expenses excluding the impact of the following:

• non-cash stock-based compensation, and

• depreciation and amortization expense.

EBITDA

Represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, plus:

• interest expense,

• income tax expense, and

• depreciation and amortization expense.

Adjusted EBITDA

Represents EBITDA plus:

• non-cash stock-based compensation.

Adjusted net income

Represents net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding:

• non-cash stock-based compensation.

Adjusted EPS

Represents diluted net income per share computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding:

• non-cash stock-based compensation.
