Date:8/2/2012

ELKRIDGE, Md., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX) today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Overview of Second Quarter 2012 Results:

  • Revenue of $102.3 million for second quarter of 2012 compared to $86.0 million for second quarter of 2011
  • Operating income of $9.9 million for second quarter of 2012 compared to $7.8 million for second quarter of 2011
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.31 for second quarter of 2012 compared to $0.25 per share for second quarter of 2011
  • EBITDA of $12.0 million for second quarter of 2012 compared to $9.6 million for second quarter of 2011
  • The Company's revenue increased 19% or $16.3 million during the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011.  Revenue grew organically by 14% or $11.9 million during the second quarter. All of the Company's operating segments achieved organic growth during the quarter, and the Sandy Training & Marketing and Learning Solutions segments achieved double-digit growth during the quarter. The improved results were driven by increased training services for both new and existing customers across a variety of industries, with the largest increases in the automotive and financial services sectors. Operating income increased 27% to $9.9 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $7.8 million for the second quarter of 2011. Net income was $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared to $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2011. The second quarter 2011 results included a $1.0 million non-recurring gain on the reversal of a deferred rent liability, which resulted in $0.03 per share for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 after being tax effected."I am pleased to report that GP Strategies' strong financial performance continued into the second quarter of 2012," commented Scott N. Greenberg, Chief Executive Officer of GP Strategies. "Our revenue growth of 19% consisted of 14% organic growth combined with strong performance from our 2011 acquisitions. The revenue growth was complemented by improved margins, including EBITDA of 12% of revenue. We will continue to look for opportunities to deploy operating cash flow in our acquisition strategy, which we believe will further enhance our platform of services, products and global delivery capabilities."

    Balance Sheet and Cash Flow HighlightsAs of June 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $7.5 million compared to $4.2 million as of December 31, 2011.

    Presentation of Non-GAAP InformationThis press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization). The Company believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's results. This measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for, or superior to, either net income, as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, or cash flow, as a measure of the Company's liquidity. In addition, because EBITDA may not be calculated identically by all companies, the presentation here may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP equivalent, see the Non-GAAP Reconciliation – EBITDA, along with related footnotes, below.

    Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) is a widely used non-GAAP financial measure of operating performance. It is presented as supplemental information that the Company believes is useful to investors to evaluate its results because it excludes certain items that are not directly related to the Company's core operating performance. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization,. EBITDA should not be considered as substitutes either for net income, as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, or for cash flow, as a measure of the Company's liquidity. In addition, because EBITDA may not be calculated identically by all companies, the presentation here may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
