SECOND-QUARTER REVENUE UP 5.0%; FIRST HALF UP 4.4%

FIRST-HALF INCOME FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS UP 6.5%; EPS $0.46

FIRST-HALF ADJUSTED EPS $0.49 EXCLUDING SHARE COUNT IMPACT OF CONVERTIBLE NOTES

ANNOUNCES NEW $400 MILLION FIVE-YEAR UNSECURED CREDIT FACILITY

CLEVELAND, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CBIZ, Inc. (NYSE: CBZ) ("Company") today announced second-quarter and first-half results for the periods ended June 30, 2014. 

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, CBIZ reported revenue of $180.9 million, an increase of $8.7 million, or 5.0%, compared with $172.2 million for the second quarter of 2013.  Same-unit organic revenue increased by $3.7 million, or 2.1% for the 2014 second quarter, compared with the same period a year ago. Newly acquired operations contributed $5.0 million, or 2.9% to revenue in the 2014 second quarter. Income from continuing operations was $6.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with $5.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share reported in the second quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $19.2 million, compared with $18.8 million for the 2013 second quarter.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2014, CBIZ reported revenue of $389.8 million, an increase of $16.4 million, or 4.4% over the $373.4 million recorded for the comparable six-month period a year ago.  Same-unit organic revenue increased by $6.6 million, or 1.8% for the first six months of 2014 compared with the same period a year ago.  Acquisitions contributed $9.8 million, or 2.6% to revenue growth for the first half of 2014. Income from continuing operations was $24.2 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2014 compared with $22.7 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2013.  Adjusted EBITDA was $58.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared with $56.9 million for the 2013 first half. 

The fully diluted weighted average share count for the first-half 2014 increased to 52.4 million shares at June 30, 2014, from 49.9 million shares a year ago, primarily due to the accounting for approximately 2.8 million common share equivalents related to the 4.875% Convertible Notes.  Normalized to exclude the impact of the increase in share equivalents related to the Convertible Notes, fully diluted earnings per share in the second quarter was $0.13, and for the first half was $0.49.

During the first half of 2014, the Company used $28.6 million for acquisition-related payments and $10.7 million to repurchase 1.3 million shares of its common stock.  The Company used approximately $6.8 million to repurchase 0.8 million shares of its common stock in the second quarter. The outstanding balance on the Company's unsecured bank line of credit at June 30, 2014, was $81.2 million, compared with a balance of $48.5 million at December 31, 2013.    

On July 28, 2014, the Company replaced its current $275 million unsecured credit facility with a new $400 million unsecured facility with a five-year term. The new credit facility will provide the Company with the continued ability to grow through strategic acquisitions and the flexibility to refinance its Convertible Notes due October 1, 2015; and will enable the Company to lower borrowing costs and simplify its capital structure. The new credit facility will expire in July 2019. 

Effective July 7, 2014, in a privately negotiated transaction, the Company repurchased and retired $17.4 million of its $130.0 million 4.875% Convertible Senior Subordinated Notes due October 1, 2015.  This transaction will result in lower interest expense of approximately $0.7 million annually, and based on the average stock price at June 30, 2014, will reduce the share count by approximately 380,000 share equivalents related to the Convertible Notes.  The Company estimates it will record a one-time charge of approximately $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2014 related to the repurchase and early retirement of these Notes.  Excluding the one-time charge for the early retirement of debt, the estimated impact of this transaction on fully diluted earnings per share for 2014 is approximately $0.01.  The new $400 million credit facility provides the Company with the flexibility to conduct additional privately negotiated Convertible Note repurchases between now and the maturity date of October 1, 2015. 

Steven L. Gerard, CBIZ Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased to record stronger revenue growth in the second quarter, and we expect stronger organic growth prospects in the second half of 2014.  The investment we have made over the past several years in business development activities in target markets continues to impact margin, but is helping to enhance our longer term growth prospects.  In addition to seeing improving organic growth trends, during the second quarter, we closed one acquisition, and we have closed four acquisitions to date in 2014.  Our acquisition pipeline continues to be active, and we expect to close additional acquisitions through the balance of 2014."    

"CBIZ enjoys strong support from our credit line banks, and our new five-year $400 million unsecured credit facility will provide us with sufficient capacity to pursue strategic acquisition opportunities.  In addition, the expanded facility will provide us a means to refinance the Convertible Notes due in 2015 with the flexibility to address additional early repurchases of the Notes as opportunities occur," concluded Mr. Gerard.

2014 Outlook:  In 2014, the Company expects continued improvement in same-unit revenue growth rates, total revenue to grow within a range of 5% to 7%, and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to grow within a range of 15% to 18% over 2013, assuming a constant share count compared with 2013.  Cash flow will continue to be positive, and Adjusted EBITDA is projected to increase within a range of 8% to 12% over the $75.6 million reported for 2013.

CBIZ will host a conference call at 11:00 a.m. this morning to discuss its results.  The call will be webcast in a listen-only mode over the internet for the media and the public, and can be accessed at www.cbiz.com.  Shareholders and analysts who would like to participate in the call can register at http://dpregister.com/10049650 to receive the dial-in number and unique pin number.

The Company believes Non-GAAP earnings and Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share more clearly illustrate the impact of certain non-cash charges and credits to "income from continuing operations" and are a useful measure for the Company and its analysts. Non-GAAP earnings is defined as income from continuing operations excluding: depreciation and amortization, non-cash interest expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration related to prior acquisitions. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP earnings by the number of weighted average diluted common shares outstanding for the period indicated. Non-GAAP earnings and Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be regarded as a replacement or alternative to any measurement of performance under generally accepted accounting principles.

Capital spending was $0.9 million and $1.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
