Management Commentary

 

“We generated record results during the fourth quarter with solid growth across nearly every key financial metric,” said Aparup Sengupta, Executive Chairman and Global CEO of Startek. “While Q4 is historically our strongest quarter of the year, we further benefitted from seasonality trends within our existing client base, including robust e-commerce tailwinds around the holiday season. This performance, coupled with our consistent focus on cost management, allowed us to drive sequential and year-over-year improvements in gross margin and adjusted EBITDA, which also benefitted from $2.7 million of government grants in Q4. Overall, our team demonstrated incredible adaptability and execution in 2020 despite one of the most challenging global operating environments we have ever faced.

 

“As we entered 2021, we further strengthened our commitment to enhancing the flexibility of our platform. Subsequent to the fourth quarter, we completed a $185 million debt refinancing that allows us to extend our debt maturities and enhance our overall liquidity position. With this reinforced balance sheet, we can comprehensively support our current operations while capitalizing on strategic opportunities to drive long-term, accretive growth.

 

“The recent minority investment we made in CSS Corp. (CSS) represents one such accretive opportunity that will also advance our ramping digital initiatives. CSS is a robust IT services company providing mission-critical AI, automation, analytics, cloud and digital solutions to a growing technology customer base across five continents. Given the success of our Startek Cloud omnichannel platform in 2020, we continue to view our digital services as a key long-term driver of both future revenue growth and margin expansion. Our investment in CSS accelerates our digitization initiatives and marks an important inflection point for Startek.

 

“Looking ahead to the rest of 2021, we are proud to have built such a strong foundation to continue driving operational efficiencies and enhancing our suite of services around the globe. We are grateful for the dedication of our team and the deep support of our shareholders as we further execute on our strategic growth plans.”

 

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results

 

Net revenue in the fourth quarter increased to $174.5 million compared to $171.6 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by elevated demand and seasonal strength within the Company’s existing client network. On a constant currency basis, net revenue increased 4.7% compared to the prior year period.

 

Gross profit in the fourth quarter increased by 11.7% to $30.9 million compared to $27.6 million in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin increased 160 basis points to 17.7% compared to 16.1% in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily driven by the aforementioned strength within Startek’s existing client base and a greater revenue mix of high-margin digital services. The margin expansion was also aided by incremental grants of $2.7 million received in the fourth quarter.

 

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in the fourth quarter decreased to $15.3 million compared to $19.4 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A improved 250 basis points to 8.8% compared to 11.3% in the year-ago quarter as a result of the continued cost reductions the Company has implemented over the past several quarters and in response to COVID-19.

 

Net loss attributable to Startek shareholders in the fourth quarter was $7.6 million or $(0.19) per share, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million or $(0.14) per share in the year-ago quarter. Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2020 included an approximate $13.2 million goodwill impairment from COVID-19 related forecasted declines in the Company’s business in India, South Africa, and Australia and in Argentina owing primarily to the devaluation of the local currency.

 

Adjusted net income* in the fourth quarter increased 50% to $8.8 million or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income* of $5.8 million or $0.15 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter.

 

Adjusted EBITDA* in the fourth quarter increased 38.5% to $23.3 million compared to $16.8 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily driven by the aforementioned revenue growth and margin expansion, cost reductions, and approximately $2.7 million in incremental benefits related to government grants.

 

On December 31, 2020, cash and restricted cash was $50.6 million compared to $56.6 million at September 30, 2020. The decrease was largely driven by increased capital expenditures in this quarter relative to previous quarters. Total debt at December 31, 2020 remained flat at $136.0 million compared to September 30, 2020, and net debt at December 31, 2020 was $85.4 million compared to $79.4 million at September 30, 2020.

 

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

 

Net revenue in 2020 was $640.2 million compared to $657.9 million in 2019. The decrease was driven by adverse movements in foreign currency during the year. On a constant currency basis, net revenue increased 0.9% compared to the prior year. The COVID-19 impact on revenue during the first half of 2020 was offset by new wins and elevated seasonal demand in the second half of the year.

 

Gross profit in 2020 was $89.6 million compared to $110.9 million in 2019. Gross margin was 14.0% compared to 16.9% in 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by higher costs relative to revenues in geographies that were heavily impacted by COVID-19 related lockdowns.

 

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in 2020 decreased significantly to $62.1 million compared to $91.4 million in 2019. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A improved 420 basis points to 9.7% compared to 13.9% in 2019 as a result of the company’s sustained cost reductions over the last 12 months and in response to COVID-19.

 

Net loss attributable to Startek shareholders in 2020 was $39.0 million or $(0.99) per share, compared to a net loss of $15.0 million or $(0.39) per share in 2019. Net loss in 2020 included an approximate $35.9 million goodwill impairment charge accounted in the first quarter and in the fourth quarter due to COVID-19 related forecasted declines in the Company’s business in India, South Africa, Australia and in Argentina owing primarily to the devaluation of the local currency.

 

Adjusted net income* in 2020 increased to $8.5 million or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income* of $4.7 million or $0.12 per diluted share in 2019.

 

Adjusted EBITDA* in 2020 increased 11.7% to $58.2 million compared to $52.1 million in 2019. The increase was primarily driven by the Company’s aforementioned cost reductions and continued focus on prudent expense management, as well as the $2.7 million incremental grant benefit in Q4.

 

*A non-GAAP measure defined below.

 

Debt Refinancing and Capital Allocation

 

Subsequent to the fourth quarter, CSP Alpha Holdings Pte. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Startek, successfully completed a debt refinancing with a newly secured $185 million senior debt facility, comprising a $165 million term loan and a $20 million revolving credit facility. The term loan bears a moratorium on principal repayment for 21 months and will amortize quarterly thereafter, beginning in November 2022. The loan is subject to certain standardized financial covenants. The proceeds of this loan was used to repay in full the previous senior debt facility and to also make the strategic investment in CSS.

 

On February 25, 2021, Startek announced a strategic investment in CSS, comprising a $30 million contribution in a limited partnership managed by Startek’s majority shareholder, Capital Square Partners, to acquire both an indirect beneficial interest of approximately 26% in CSS, as well as an option to acquire a controlling stake. The option to acquire a majority stake in CSS is at the sole discretion of Startek, and the Company has no obligation to do so.

STARTEK, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

(In thousands)
(Unaudited)

 

This press release contains references to the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to its comparable GAAP measure is included below. This non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to the reported results determined in accordance with GAAP. It is provided solely to assist in an investor’s understanding of these items on the comparability of the Company’s operations.

 

Adjusted EBITDA:

 

The Company defines non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as Net loss plus Income tax expense, Interest and other expense, net, Depreciation and amortization expense, Restructuring and other acquisition related cost, Share-based compensation expense and Warrant contra revenue (if applicable). Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure to analyze the performance of our business. Management believes that excluding these non-cash and other non-recurring items permits a more meaningful comparison and understanding of our strength and performance of our ongoing operations for our investors and analysts.

 

Adjusted EPS:

 

Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure presenting the earnings generated by our ongoing operations that we believe is useful to investors in making meaningful comparisons to other companies, although our measure of Adjusted EPS may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies, and period-over-period comparisons. Adjusted EPS is defined as our diluted earnings per common share attributable to StarTek shareholders adjusted to exclude the effects of the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, investments that investors may want to evaluate separately (such as based on fair value) and the impact of certain events, gains, losses or other charges that affect period-over-period comparisons. Acquisition-related intangible assets are recognized as a result of the application of Accounting Standards Codification Topic (“ASC”) 805, Business Combinations (such as customer relationships and Brand), and their amortization is significantly affected by the size and timing of our acquisitions.
