Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we monitor other non-GAAP financial measures that we use to manage our business, to make planning decisions, to allocate resources and to use as performance measures in our executive compensation plans. These key financial measures provide an additional view of our operational performance over the long-term and provide useful information that we use in order to maintain and grow our business.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is used to enhance the understanding of certain aspects of our financial performance. It is not meant to be considered in isolation from, as superior to, or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP Measure

Definition

How We Use The Measure

Net Service Revenues

• Sum of professional service revenues and Net Insurance Service Revenues, or total revenues less insurance costs.

• Provides a comparable basis of revenues on a net basis. Professional service revenues are represented net of client payroll costs whereas insurance service revenues are presented gross of insurance costs for financial reporting purposes.

• Acts as the basis to allocate resources to different functions and evaluates the effectiveness of our business strategies by each business function.

• Provides a measure, among others, used in the determination of incentive compensation for management.

 

Net Insurance Service Revenues

• Insurance service revenues less insurance costs.

• Is a component of Net Service Revenues.

• Provides a comparable basis of revenues on a net basis. Professional service revenues are represented net of client payroll costs whereas insurance service revenues are presented gross of insurance costs for financial reporting purposes.  Promotes an understanding of our insurance services business by evaluating insurance service revenues net of our WSE related costs which are substantially pass-through for the benefit of our WSEs. Under GAAP, insurance service revenues and costs are recorded gross as we have latitude in establishing the price, service and supplier specifications.

• We also sometimes refer to Net Insurance Service Margin, which is the ratio of Net Insurance Revenue to Insurance Service Revenues.




Non-GAAP Measure

Definition

How We Use The Measure

Adjusted EBITDA

• Net income, excluding the effects of:

- income tax provision,
- interest expense,
- depreciation,
- amortization of intangible assets, and
- stock-based compensation expense.

• Provides period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis and an understanding as to how our management evaluates the effectiveness of our business strategies by excluding certain non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation recognized based on the estimated fair values. We believe these charges are not directly resulting from our core operations or indicative of our ongoing operations.

• Enhances comparisons to prior periods and, accordingly, facilitates the development of future projections and earnings growth prospects.

• Provides a measure, among others, used in the determination of incentive compensation for management.

• We also sometimes refer to Adjusted EBITDA margin, which is the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Service Revenue.

 

Adjusted Net Income

• Net income, excluding the effects of:
- effective income tax rate(1),
- stock-based compensation,
- amortization of intangible assets,
- non-cash interest expense(2), and
- the income tax effect (at our effective tax rate(1)) of these pre-tax adjustments.

• Provides information to our stockholders and board of directors to understand how our management evaluates our business, to monitor and evaluate our operating results, and analyze profitability of our ongoing operations and trends on a consistent basis by excluding certain non-cash charges.

 

 

 

 

(1)

We have adjusted the non-GAAP effective tax rate to 26% for 2018 from 41% for 2017, due primarily to a decrease in the statutory rate from 35% to 21%. These non-GAAP effective tax rates exclude the income tax impact from stock-based compensation, changes in uncertain tax positions, and nonrecurring benefits or expenses from federal legislative changes.

(2)

Non-cash interest expense represents amortization and write-off of our debt issuance costs.
