3.1

Fee revenue was $484.5 million in Q1 FY'20, an increase of 4% (7% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to Q1 FY'19.  The increase in fee revenue was due to growth in RPO and Professional Search.

Net income attributable to Korn Ferry was $43.0 million in Q1 FY'20 as compared to a loss of $38.6 million in Q1 FY'19.  The increase in net income attributable to Korn Ferry resulted from a decrease in general and administrative expenses mainly due to the $106.6 million tradename write-offs in Q1 FY'19, partially offset by an increase in income tax provision in Q1 FY'20.

Operating margin was 12.5% in Q1 FY'20 compared to (11.8%) in the year-ago quarter.  The increase in operating margin was primarily due to the decrease in general and administrative expenses as described above and an increase in fee revenue, partially offset by an increase in compensation and benefits.

Adjusted EBITDA margin was 15.5%, compared to 15.2% in the year-ago quarter.

Fee revenue was $95.8 million in Q1 FY'20, an increase of $18.5 million or 24% (27% increase on a constant currency basis), compared to the year-ago quarter.  The higher fee revenue was primarily driven by an increase in fee revenue in recruitment process outsourcing and professional search of $11.9 million and $6.6 million, respectively, in Q1 FY'20 compared to Q1 FY'19.

Operating income was $15.0 million in Q1 FY'20, an increase of $3.4 million compared to Q1 FY'19 operating income of $11.6 million.  Operating margin was 15.7% in the current quarter compared to 15.1% in the year-ago quarter.  The increase in operating income was due to higher fee revenue in Q1 FY'20 compared to Q1 FY'19, partially offset by an increase in compensation and benefits expense driven by a 31% increase in average headcount.

EBITDA was $16.1 million during Q1 FY'20, an increase of $3.6 million compared to Q1 FY'19.  EBITDA margin was 16.8% in Q1 FY'20 and 16.2% in Q1 FY'19.

Outlook

Assuming worldwide economic conditions, financial markets and foreign exchange rates remain steady, on a consolidated basis:

  • Q2 FY'20 fee revenue is expected to be in the range of $485 million and $505 million; and
  • Q2 FY'20 diluted earnings per share is likely to range between $0.76 to $0.84.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information calculated other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP").  In particular, it includes:

  • Adjusted net income attributable to Korn Ferry, adjusted to exclude integration/acquisition costs and tradename write-offs, net of income tax effect;
  • Adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share, adjusted to exclude integration/acquisition costs and tradename write-offs, net of income tax effect; and in the case of the outlook section, also adjusted for tax rate impact;
  • Constant currency (calculated using a quarterly average) percentages that represent the percentage change that would have resulted had exchange rates in the prior period been the same as those in effect in the current period;
  • EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and EBITDA margin; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA, which is EBITDA further adjusted to exclude integration/acquisition costs and tradename write-offs, and Adjusted EBITDA margin.

This non-GAAP disclosure has limitations as an analytical tool, should not be viewed as a substitute for financial information determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP, nor is it necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.

Management believes the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures in this press release provides meaningful supplemental information regarding Korn Ferry's performance by excluding certain charges that may not be indicative of Korn Ferry's ongoing operating results.  These non-GAAP financial measures are performance measures and are not indicative of the liquidity of Korn Ferry.  These charges represent 1) costs we incurred to acquire and integrate a portion of our Advisory business and 2) tradename write-offs associated with the rebranding plan initiated by Korn Ferry.  The use of non-GAAP financial measures facilitates comparisons to Korn Ferry's historical performance.  Korn Ferry includes non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its evaluation of Korn Ferry's ongoing operations and financial and operational decision-making.  Adjusted net income attributable to Korn Ferry, adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA, exclude certain charges that management does not consider on-going in nature and allows management and investors to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's operating results.  Management further believes that EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by investors and other interested parties to measure operating performance among companies with different capital structures, effective tax rates and tax attributes and capitalized asset values, all of which can vary substantially from company to company.  In the case of constant currency percentages, management believes the presentation of such information provides useful supplemental information regarding Korn Ferry's performance as excluding the impact of exchange rate changes on Korn Ferry's financial performance allows investors to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's operating results, to better identify operating trends that may otherwise be masked or distorted by exchange rate changes and to perform related trend analysis, and provides a higher degree of transparency of information used by management in its evaluation of Korn Ferry's ongoing operations and financial and operational decision-making.
