PR Newswire

DENVER, Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TTEC Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTEC), a leading global customer experience technology and services provider focused on the design, implementation and delivery of transformative solutions for many of the world's most iconic and disruptive brands, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

"The market for digital customer engagement technology and services is experiencing unprecedented demand," commented Ken Tuchman, chairman and chief executive officer. "With our outcome-based, end-to-end customer experience technology and services platform we are actively taking advantage of this immense digital opportunity. Our growing pipeline across the business and the highest quarterly bookings in over 10 years demonstrate that our value proposition is resonating and taking hold with this rapidly expanding market."

Tuchman continued, "Based on our current and estimated 2018 new business volumes and backlog, we now anticipate a noteworthy uptick in our organic growth in 2019. However, given a short list of unanticipated temporary challenges in our Customer Management Services segment that are specific to 2018, we are resetting our outlook for 2018. We are confident these factors will be cleared this year and, based on Customer Management Services' estimated bookings and current momentum in our Customer Growth, Technology and Strategy segments, we project we will be back on track in 2019."

Tuchman concluded, "As we look to the second half of the year, we are focused on executing the conversion of our new business pipeline and delivering on our growing revenue backlog. Our demand engine is operating on all cylinders, our pipeline and backlog are robust, our consulting, technology and analytics capabilities are gaining traction, and our operational platform is scaling to support the demand."

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

"The first half of 2018 was marked by a number of strategic accomplishments," commented Regina Paolillo, chief financial and administrative officer at TTEC. "Most notably, our growing pipeline is converting into larger and more transformative bookings across geographies, industries, and our emerging digital capabilities. We are also seeing further pipeline growth in the second half of the year with significant early new business signings in the third quarter."

Paolillo continued, "While we met our consolidated second quarter revenue target, our profitability fell short of our plan due to unanticipated short-term challenges in our customer management business. At the same time our value changing customer strategy, technology and growth businesses performed at or above plan. Our updated full-year 2018 outlook is a function of these challenges. We are keenly focused on growing our pipeline, bookings, and backlog, setting the stage for improved revenue growth and profitability in 2019. Our view is that these challenges will be resolved in 2018 enabling us to increase our revenue growth rate and expand our Adjusted EBITDA and operating income margins early in 2019."

Full year 2018 guidance, which includes the adoption of ASC 606, but excludes AHFS/WD, is updated as follows:

  • Revenue – Revenue estimated to increase 2.3 to 3.0 percent between $1.490 and $1.500 billion compared to $1.505 and $1.525 billion previously provided guidance.
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin(1) – Adjusted EBITDA margin estimated between 12.8 and 13.2 percent, compared to 13.9 and 14.2 percent previously provided guidance.
  • Operating Income Margin – Operating income margin estimated between 7.4 and 7.8 percent compared to 8.7 and 8.9 percent previously provided guidance.
  • Capital Expenditures – Capital expenditures are unchanged, estimated at 3.8 percent of revenue, of which approximately 70 percent is growth oriented.
