Insperity Announces Record Second Quarter Results

Share:

Insperity,
Inc.
(NYSE:NSP), a leading provider of human
resources and business performance solutions
for America's best
businesses, today reported results for the second quarter ended Jun. 30,
2018:

  • Q2 worksite employee growth accelerates to 13%, driving 18% gross
    profit increase
  • Q2 net income and EPS up 75% and 76%, to $25 million and $0.58,
    respectively
  • Q2 adjusted EPS up 66% to $0.68
  • Q2 adjusted EBITDA up 40% to $47 million
  • YTD EPS and adjusted EPS up 50% and 57%, respectively

Second Quarter Results

Second quarter 2018 net income and diluted earnings per share of $24.6
million and $0.58 represented increases of 75% and 76%, respectively,
compared to the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted diluted earnings per
share were $0.68, a 66% increase over the second quarter of 2017.
Adjusted EBITDA increased 40% over the second quarter of 2017 to $46.6
million.

"Our dynamic business model is continuing to generate impressive
financial results," said Paul J. Sarvadi, Insperity chairman and chief
executive officer. "Insperity is poised for growth acceleration over the
balance of the year and continued double-digit growth into 2019."

Revenues increased 16% over the second quarter of 2017 to $922.3 million
on a 13% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per
month. The continued double-digit worksite employee growth was the
result of increased new client sales, a continued high level of client
retention and an improvement in net hiring of worksite employees by our
client base.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 increased 18% over the
second quarter of 2017 to $154.5 million. This increase was driven by
the 13% worksite employee growth and effective management of pricing and
our direct cost programs. Operating expenses increased 12% over the
second quarter of 2017 to $121.0 million, and included continued
investment in our growth, technology and product and service offerings,
offset by operating leverage in other areas of the business. Operating
expense per worksite employee per month declined from $199 in the second
quarter of 2017 to $198.

"We once again had a strong quarter with accelerating worksite employee
growth and effective management of gross profit and operating costs
driving significant earnings growth," said Douglas S. Sharp, senior vice
president of finance, chief financial officer and treasurer. "Our
momentum coming off of consecutive quarters of record high earnings
results puts us in a position to raise our guidance for full year
adjusted EPS growth to 42% to 44% over 2017."

Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended Jun. 30, 2018, reported net income increased
50% over the first six months of 2017 to $74.6 million, and diluted net
income per share increased 50% to $1.77. Adjusted diluted earnings per
share increased 57% over the first six months of 2017 to $2.09. Adjusted
EBITDA increased 36% to $130.4 million.

Revenues for the first six months of 2018 increased 15% to $1.9 billion,
on a 13% increase in the average number of worksite employees paid per
month over the 2017 period. Gross profit for the first six months of
2018 increased 22% to $354.3 million. Operating expenses increased 20%
to $256.0 million over the 2017 period. Adjusted operating expenses
increased 16% to $246.7 million over the 2017 period and included
additional accruals for incentive compensation tied to our
outperformance during the first half of the year.

Net income per worksite employee per month increased 32% from $47 in the
2017 period to $62 in the 2018 period. Adjusted EBITDA per worksite
employee per month increased 21% from $90 in the 2017 period to $109 in
the 2018 period.

approximately 212,000 shares of stock at a cost of $16.2 million,
dividends totaling $16.8 million and capital expenditures of $14.0

You can identify such
forward-looking statements by the words "expects," "intends," "plans,"

Forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties.
In the normal course of business, Insperity, Inc., in an effort to help
keep our stockholders and the public informed about our operations, may
from time to time issue such forward-looking statements, either orally
or in writing. Generally, these statements relate to business plans or
strategies, projected or anticipated benefits or other consequences of
such plans or strategies, or projections involving anticipated revenues,
earnings, unit growth, profit per worksite employee, pricing, operating
expenses or other aspects of operating results. We base the
forward-looking statements on our expectations, estimates and
projections at the time such statements are made. These statements are
not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties
that we cannot predict.
In addition, we have based many of these
forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may
prove to be inaccurate.
Therefore, the actual results of the
future events described in such forward-looking statements could differ
materially from those stated in such forward-looking statements. Among
the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are:
(i) adverse economic conditions; (ii) regulatory and tax developments
and possible adverse application of various federal, state and local
regulations; (iii) the ability to secure competitive replacement
contracts for health insurance and workers' compensation insurance at
expiration of current contracts; (iv) cancellation of client contracts
on short notice, or the inability to renew client contracts or attract
new clients; (v) vulnerability to regional economic factors because of
our geographic market concentration; (vi) increases in health insurance
costs and workers' compensation rates and underlying claims trends,
health care reform, financial solvency of workers' compensation
carriers, other insurers or financial institutions, state unemployment
tax rates, liabilities for employee and client actions or
payroll-related claims; (vii) failure to manage growth of our operations
and the effectiveness of our sales and marketing efforts; (viii) the
impact of the competitive environment and other developments in the
human resources services industry, including the PEO industry, on our
growth and/or profitability; (ix) our liability for worksite employee
payroll, payroll taxes and benefits costs; (x) our liability for
disclosure of sensitive or private information; (xi) our ability to
integrate or realize expected returns on our acquisitions; (xii) failure
of our information technology systems; (xiii) an adverse final judgment
or settlement of claims against Insperity; and (xiv) disruptions to our
business resulting from the actions of certain stockholders. These
factors are discussed in further detail in Insperity's filings with the
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Any of these factors, or a
combination of such factors, could materially affect the results of our
operations and whether forward-looking statements we make ultimately
prove to be accurate.

Except to the extent otherwise required by federal securities law, we
do not undertake any obligation to update our forward-looking statements
to reflect events or circumstances after the date they are made or to
reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Non-bonus payroll cost represents payroll cost excluding the impact of
bonus payrolls paid to the company's worksite employees. Bonus payroll
cost varies from period to period, but has no direct impact to the
company's ultimate workers' compensation costs under the current
program. As a result, Insperity management refers to non-bonus payroll
cost in analyzing, reporting and forecasting the company's workers'
compensation costs.

Insperity management believes EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are often
useful measures of the company's operating performance, as they allow

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common

useful measures of the company's operating performance in this period,
as they allow for additional analysis of the company's operating results

Non-bonus payroll cost, adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable
securities, adjusted operating expenses, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA,
adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common
stock are not financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and
may be different from similar measures used by other companies.
Non-bonus payroll cost, adjusted cash, cash equivalents and marketable

adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per share of common
stock should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to,
measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP
financial measures used in this press release to their most directly
