  • The Company's data and analytics services segment reported revenues of $5.8 million, compared to revenues of $6.6 million in first quarter 2018, but exceeded fourth quarter 2018 revenues of $5.4 million - as pipeline and project wins increased;
  • The IT staffing segment achieved organic revenue growth of 7% during the first quarter of 2019, compared to the first quarter of 2018;

First Quarter Results: 

Revenues for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $45.2 million compared to $43.3 million during the corresponding quarter last year. Gross profit in the first quarter of 2019 was $10.8 million, compared to $10.2 million in the same quarter of 2018. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2019 totaled $1.0 million or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $1.4 million or $0.12 per diluted share during the same period last year. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.6 million or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $2.0 million or $0.18 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2018. 

Activity levels at the Company's data and analytics services segment were up from the previous quarter, and revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by approximately $0.4 million over revenues reported in the fourth quarter of 2018. This 7% sequential growth reflected more pipeline opportunities and a better project win ratio. Demand for the Company's IT staffing services remained strong during the quarter as we grew our consultants on billing for the fifth consecutive quarter.    

"I am happy to state that our Data and Analytics segment is once again showing sequential growth - thanks to accelerated positive momentum in terms of pipeline expansion and project wins," commented Vivek Gupta, Mastech Digital's Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to see positive developments in this segment, including the recent appointment of industry veteran Paul Burton as its Chief Executive. Our IT staffing segment continued to deliver above industry average growth at higher gross margins, on the strength of our focus on digital technologies," he added.

Commenting on the Company's financial position, Jack Cronin, Mastech Digital's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "At March 31, 2019 we had bank debt, net of cash balances on hand, of $37.0 million and approximately $8 million of borrowing capacity available to us under our revolving credit line. During the quarter, debt levels, net of cash declined by $0.8 million, as we continued to make progress on cash conversion issues related to the implementation of our new Cloud-based ERP platform."

Use of Non-GAAP Measures:

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures to supplement our financial results presented on a GAAP basis. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures are included in the attached financial tables.

We believe that providing non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share offers investors useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enables comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in operating our business. Additionally, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's performance.

Specifically, the non-GAAP financial measures contained herein exclude the following expense items:

Amortization of acquired intangible assets: We amortize intangible assets acquired in connection with our June 2015 acquisition of Hudson IT and our July 2017 acquisition of the services division of InfoTrellis, Inc. We exclude these amortization expenses in our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe it allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies within our industry and facilitates a helpful comparison of our results with other periods.

Stock-based compensation expenses: We incur material recurring expense related to non-cash, stock-based compensation. We exclude these expenses in our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that it provides investors with meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance. In particular, because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types that companies can use under ASC 718, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these expenses allows investors to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies within our industry and facilitates comparison of our results with other periods.

Forward-Looking Statements:

Certain statements contained in this release are forward-looking statements based on management's expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions. Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "plans," "believes," "scheduled," "estimates" and variations of these words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which include but are not limited to (i) projections of revenues, earnings, and cash flow, and (ii)  the expected benefits to Mastech Digital from completing the acquisition of the services division of InfoTrellis, Inc. and the PNC credit facility and the expected performance of Mastech Digital following completion of these transactions. These statements are based on information currently available to the Company and it assumes no obligation to update the forward-looking statements as circumstances change.  These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual future results and trends may differ materially from what is forecast in forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including, without limitation, the level of market demand for its services, the highly competitive market for the types of services offered by the Company, the impact of competitive factors on profit margins, market conditions that could cause the Company's customers to reduce their spending for its services, and the Company's ability to create, acquire and build new lines of business, to attract and retain qualified personnel, reduce costs and conserve cash, and other risks that are described in more detail in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.
