Management Commentary

“ASGN achieved very strong results for the second quarter, with revenues and Adjusted EBITDA surpassing the high end of our guidance ranges,” said ASGN President and Chief Executive Officer, Ted Hanson. “Strength during the quarter was driven in part by growth in our Commercial Segment, where revenues improved 20.3 percent year-over-year due largely to the high performance of our consulting business. Commercial consulting revenues totaled $144.4 million for the second quarter, up 69.3 percent from the prior-year period, driving top-line growth as well as continued margin improvement. We also saw strength in our Federal Government Segment, where revenues increased 9.5 percent from second quarter of 2020, performing in line with our expectations.”

Mr. Hanson continued, “These are exciting times for ASGN. The market is strong, demand for our services is growing, and we continue to gain market share. We remain sharply focused on our mission to be a leading provider of IT services and solutions to the commercial and government end markets. In addition to the consistent organic growth of our business, we have successfully completed six acquisitions since the beginning of 2020, which added high growth, high margin consulting capabilities to our company. Our acquisition strategy is succeeding, and we continue to make progress on our strategic growth plan. With the strong resurgence of our commercial business, the stability and growth of our federal government business and a robust pipeline of M&A opportunities, we are confident we have positioned ASGN for long-term sustainable growth in the markets we serve.”

Notes:

With the planned divestiture, the Company now has two financial reporting segments: Commercial and Federal Government. The Commercial Segment is a combination of the Apex Segment (which was comprised of the Apex Systems and Creative Circle divisions) and CyberCoders, which was previously part of the Oxford Segment. The Federal Government Segment was formerly referred to as the ECS Segment.

All prior periods included above and elsewhere in the release have been revised to present the Oxford business as discontinued operations.

Definitions of non-GAAP measures and reconciliation to GAAP measurements are included in the tables that accompany this release.

As previously announced, ASGN entered into a definitive agreement on June 30, 2021 to sell its Oxford business for $525.0 million in cash (approximately $415.0 million in estimated proceeds after income taxes). The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter. As a result of the decision to divest the Oxford business, operating results of the Oxford business are now reported as discontinued operations in this and all future releases and SEC filings. The Company changed its financial reporting segments to give effect to the planned divestiture and now reports two financial segments: Commercial and Federal Government.

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter were up 17.2 percent year-over-year resulting from high growth in the Commercial and Federal Government Segments. All operating divisions were up year-over-year and sequentially. Revenues from the Commercial Segment (73.1 percent of total revenues) were up 20.3 percent year-over-year and up 9.7 percent sequentially. Revenues from the Federal Government Segment (26.9 percent of revenues) were up 9.5 percent year-over-year and up 1.8 percent sequentially.

Growth in the Commercial Segment revenues (comprised of Apex Systems, Creative Circle and CyberCoders) reflected the high growth in IT services and solutions, creative marketing and placement services, reflecting continued improvement in performance since the second quarter of last year. Consulting services (20.3 percent of revenues for the Commercial Segment) were $144.4 million, up 69.3 percent year-over-year. Assignment revenues (79.7 percent of revenues for the Commercial Segment) were $568.2 million, up 12.1 percent year-over-year.

Growth in Federal Government Segment revenues for the quarter was 9.5 percent year-over-year. Growth for the quarter related to a number of factors including increased volume under certain existing programs, new contract awards and the contribution from acquisitions.

Gross profit was up 21.5 percent on revenue growth of 17.2 percent. Gross margin was 28.3 percent, up from 27.3 percent in the second quarter of 2020. The improvement in gross margin primarily related to the high relative growth of the Company's high-margin services (commercial consulting, creative marketing and placement services).

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $176.4 million (18.1 percent of revenues), compared with $146.0 million (17.6 percent of revenues) in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year increase in expenses reflected higher headcount and incentive compensation expense, as well as higher acquisition expenses related to the Company's acquisition program.

Income from continuing operations was $57.3 million, up 31.7 percent from the second quarter of 2020. Income from discontinued operations, net of tax, was $6.9 million, up 30.2 percent from the second quarter of 2020.

Net income was $64.2 million ($1.19 per diluted share), up from $48.8 million ($0.92 per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2020. Income from continuing operations was $57.3 million ($1.06 per diluted share), up from $43.5 million ($0.82 per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted Net Income (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations was $70.9 million ($1.32 per diluted share), up from $56.2 million ($1.06 per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) from continuing operations was $119.3 million, up from $95.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. The Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 12.2 percent, up 70 basis points year-over-year.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's primary source of liquidity is cash flows from operating activities, which have been sufficient to fund working capital and capital expenditure requirements.

At June 30, 2021, the Company had:

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $375.4 million
  • Full availability under its $250.0 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility (due 2024)
  • Outstanding Senior Secured Debt of $490.8 million (term B loan facility due 2025)
  • Senior unsecured notes totaling $550.0 million at 4.625 percent (due 2028)

Borrowings under the Company’s $250.0 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility are limited to a maximum Senior Secured Debt leverage ratio (ratio of Senior Secured Debt to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA) of 4.0 to 1.0 at June 30, 2021. The Company's Senior Secured Debt leverage ratio was 1.17 to 1.0 at quarter end.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Estimates

The Company's financial estimates for the third quarter of 2021, which are set forth below, are based on current operating trends and assume no significant deterioration in the markets ASGN serves. These estimates do not include any acquisition, integration or strategic planning expenses and assume no significant change in current foreign exchange rates. Reconciliations of estimated net income to the estimated non-GAAP financial measures are included in the tables that accompany this release.

___________

(1)

Includes non-cash expenses totaling $16.6 million, comprised of: (i) $10.0 million in stock-based compensation and (ii) $6.6 million in depreciation.

(2)

Comprised of income from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, plus the gain on sale for the Oxford business. Estimated proceeds, net of income taxes, are approximately $415.0 million.

(3)

Estimated effective tax rate before any excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation.

(4)

Does not include the “Cash Tax Savings on Indefinite-lived Intangible Assets.” These savings total $7.1 million each quarter, or $0.13 per diluted share, and represent the economic value of the tax deduction that ASGN receives from the amortization of goodwill and trademarks.

The financial estimates above are based on estimated of “Billable Days” of 64.0, which is the same as the third quarter of 2020 and half a day more than the second quarter of 2021. Billable Days are defined as Business Days (calendar days for the period less weekends and holidays) adjusted for other factors, such as the day of the week a holiday occurs, and additional time taken off around holidays. These estimates imply year-over-year growth of 14.4 percent to 16.6 percent.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Statements in this release and the accompanying financial information include non-GAAP financial measures that are provided as additional information to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and not as an alternative to the consolidated interim financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). Management uses these non-GAAP measures (EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per diluted share, Free Cash Flow, Senior Secured Debt leverage ratio and Revenues on a same Billable Days and Constant Currency basis) to evaluate the Company's financial performance. These terms might not be calculated in the same manner as, and thus might not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The financial information tables that accompany this press release include reconciliations of net income to non-GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide a measure of the Company's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of the Company's core business on an ongoing basis, by removing the effects of non-operating and certain non-cash expenses. These non-operating and non-cash items are specifically identified in the reconciliations of GAAP measures to Non-GAAP measures that accompany this release.

Adjusted Net Income provides a method for assessing the Company's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of the Company's core business on an ongoing basis by removing the effects of non-operating and certain non-cash expenses, adjusted for some of the cash flows associated with amortization of intangible assets to more fully present the performance of the Company's acquisitions. The calculation of Adjusted Net Income is presented in the reconciliations of GAAP measures to Non-GAAP measures that accompany this release.

Free Cash Flow provides useful information to investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that can be used for strategic opportunities and is computed as presented in the tables that accompany this release.

The Senior Secured Debt leverage ratio is a ratio of the Company's Senior Secured Debt to trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA (gives effect to the divestiture of the Oxford business) and provides information about the Company's compliance with loan covenants.

Revenues calculated on a Same Billable Days and Constant Currency basis provide more comparable information by removing the effect of differences in the number of billable days and changes in currency exchange rates on a year-over-year basis. Revenues on a Same Billable Days basis are adjusted for the following items: differences in billable days during the period by taking the current-period average revenue per billable day, multiplied by the number of billable days from the same period in the prior year; Billable Days are business days (calendar days for the period less weekends and holidays) adjusted for other factors, such as the day of the week a holiday occurs, additional time taken off around holidays, year-end client furloughs and inclement weather. To calculate revenues on Constant Currency basis, reported revenues are re-translated using foreign exchange rates from the comparable prior year period.
