RADNOR, Pa., Oct. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ICG Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICGE) ("ICG") today reported its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Highlights

  • Announced the execution of a definitive agreement for the sale of Procurian to Accenture for $375 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments at closing, including working capital, cash, debt and other items. ICG expects to realize approximately $324 million in connection with the sale, which is anticipated to close in the fourth quarter;
  • Announced the expansion of ICG's existing share repurchase program from $50 million to $150 million. Prior to this expansion, ICG deployed approximately $36 million to repurchase shares; Currently, approximately $114 million remains available for repurchases under the program;
  • Continued to achieve strong organic growth, reporting a 39% increase in year-to-date revenue;
  • Completed Bolt's strategic acquisition of Superior Access, a transaction that is expected to enhance Bolt's network and platform;
  • Spent $7.5 million for sales and marketing expenses across our businesses, bringing year-to-date expenses to $19.6 million.

"The announcement of the Procurian transaction is a seminal event for ICG, and we are very proud of Procurian's success, marked by its strong growth and the value that we built over the past decade," said Walter Buckley, ICG's Chief Executive Officer. "We are excited to now unlock that value with this transaction and to execute against our growth strategy as a pure-play cloud company. On the heels of another quarter of excellent organic revenue growth, armed with our experience in building market-leading positions and a strong balance sheet, we are eager to continue pursuing the vast market opportunity for cloud computing that is in front of us. Above all, we believe we are well positioned to create stockholder value as a leading cloud company."

Financial Information

Because Procurian was classified as an asset held for sale as of September 30, 2013, Procurian's results are excluded from our continuing operations for all periods presented. Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 increased to $16.1 million, up from $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income (loss) for the third quarter of 2013 was a loss of $(3.1) million, or $(0.08) per diluted share, as compared to a loss of $(4.8) million, or $(0.13) per diluted share, in the corresponding 2012 period. GAAP net income (loss) for the third quarter of 2013 was a loss of $(3.3) million, or $(0.09) per diluted share, compared to income of $21.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2012 included one-time gains primarily related to a fair value gain recorded upon the consolidation of CIML during that period.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Forecast

ICG expects revenue in the range of $17.0 million to $17.5 million and non-GAAP net loss per share in the range of $(0.08) and $(0.13) for the fourth quarter of 2013.

A reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP measures noted above is included with the financial tables at the end of this release.

About ICG's Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release contains non-GAAP financial measures. The tables above reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  ICG strongly urges investors and potential investors in our securities to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included in this release.

ICG's management believes that its non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they allow investors to view the business through the eyes of management and provide meaningful supplemental information regarding ICG's operating results, as they exclude amounts that ICG excludes as part of its monitoring of operating results and assessment of the performance of the business.  

ICG presents the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release:  (1) organic revenue growth, (2) non-GAAP net income (loss) (also referred to as adjusted net income (loss)) and (3) non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share (also referred to as adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share).  ICG excludes items from these non-GAAP financial measures as described below.

Organic revenue growth is GAAP revenue growth adjusted to

  • Exclude revenue from tuck-in acquisitions that occurred in 2013, 
  • Exclude revenue unrelated to ICG's current consolidated companies (Bolt, GovDelivery and MSDSonline), 
  • Add back revenue related to ICG's current consolidated companies for periods prior to their respective dates of consolidation, and
  • Add back acquired businesses deferred revenue related to ICG's current consolidated companies.

ICG management believes these adjustments provide investors with a more complete understanding of revenue trends by providing revenue growth on a consistent basis. The following table is the reconciliation of GAAP revenue growth to non-GAAP organic revenue growth:

 

  For the nine months ended
September 30, 2013
GAAP revenue growth 136%
Adjustments described above (97%)
Organic revenue growth 39%

Non-GAAP net income (loss), excludes the additional following items:

  • Share-based compensation. ICG excludes share-based compensation expenses associated with equity granted to employees and non-employee directors primarily because they are non-cash expenses that ICG does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business, and the exclusion of these expenses facilitates the comparison of results over different time periods and the comparison of ICG's results with results of other companies. 
     
  • Amortization of intangibles. ICG excludes amortization of acquired intangibles, primarily customer relationships and technology, because they are expenses that ICG does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business, and ICG believes that doing so facilitates comparisons to its historical operating results and to the results of other companies. 
     
  • Impairment-related and other costs. ICG excludes the effect of impairment-related and other costs, which primarily include impairment charges, revaluation of contingent consideration, restructuring and severance fees, acquisition related costs, legal and settlement costs and other one-time costs, because ICG does not consider them part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business and believes it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on ICG's operations. 
     
  • Other income (loss), net. ICG excludes the effect of other income (loss), net, which primarily includes transaction-driven gains and losses, as well as certain foreign currency impacts, because ICG does not consider them part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business and believes it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on ICG's operations.  
     
  • Acquired businesses' deferred revenue. ICG includes acquired businesses' previously deferred revenues that are not recognized under GAAP because ICG considers them a part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business and believes it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on its operations.  
     
  • Equity loss.  In accordance with GAAP, ICG recognizes its share of the earnings or losses of each company accounted for under the equity method and adjusts the carrying amount for each such company for its share of the earnings or losses of the company.  ICG excludes GAAP equity income (loss) because it is significantly impacted by factors outside its direct control. 
     
  • Current non-cash income tax benefit on discrete items. ICG excludes the impact of any current non-cash income tax benefit associated with discrete items as ICG believes it is useful for investors to understand the effect of this item and ICG does not consider them a part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business. 
     
  • Income of discontinued operations. ICG excludes the income (loss) of discontinued operations as ICG believes it is useful for investors to understand the effect of this item for all periods presented as ICG does not consider them a part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business. 
     
  • Impact of non-controlling interest (NCI) on discontinued operations. ICG does not own 100% of the discontinued operations presented. Therefore ICG excludes the impact of the NCI on discontinued operations as ICG believes it is useful for investors to understand the effect of this item for all periods presented as compared to what has historically been provided as ICG does not consider them a part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of its business.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share is calculated as follows:

  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) (as defined above) is the numerator. 
     
  • Shares used in calculation of non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share. For periods where GAAP and non-GAAP net income (loss) are both losses, ICG uses the same number of shares used to calculate GAAP and non-GAAP net loss per share. For periods where GAAP and non-GAAP net income (loss) are both income, ICG uses the same number of shares used to calculate GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share. For periods where GAAP net income (loss) is a loss but non-GAAP net income (loss) is income, ICG includes the impact of incremental dilutive securities for the period to determine non-GAAP net income per diluted share. For periods where GAAP net income (loss) is income but non-GAAP net income (loss) is a loss, ICG excludes the impact of incremental dilutive securities for the period to determine non-GAAP net loss per diluted share. 

ICG believes that the following considerations apply to the non-GAAP financial measures that it presents:

  • ICG's management uses non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share in internal reports used by management in monitoring and making decisions regarding ICG's business, including in monthly financial reports prepared for management and in periodic reports to ICG's Board of Directors. 
     
  • An important limitation of ICG's non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude expenses, some of which may be significant, that are required by GAAP to be recorded.  In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations because they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which charges to exclude from the non-GAAP financial measures. 
     
  • To mitigate the limitations associated with non-GAAP financial measures, ICG reconciles its non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP financial measures and recommends that investors and potential investors do not give undue weight to its non-GAAP financial measures.
